  1. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/farsidegames/epic-seven-arise-the-board-game?ref=profile_saved_projects_live Looks interesting. Though i dont really have $95 or $120 to throw at it right now. The Hero minis are said to be 35mm - 40mm. The minion monsters look pretty cool. Apparently its based on some digital game, but i have no actual experience with that. Just think the minis look cool.
  2. We stopped gaming in person in February (shortly after my birthday), but continued playing on line... We did most of Rise of teh Runelords that way. When things kind of got back to normal here in Maryland we went back to in-person gaming. man i hated playing through Skype and that other one... (forgot the name). We did a Starfinder campaign and are now doing a starwars EOTE campaign. Honestly if playing virtually became the only way to cpntinue playing, i think I would probably quit. I am looking forward to minis coming, but this year's gaming issues probably contributed as to why i didnt go very big on this one. Only got the Ship, the henchwoman, the vampire encounter. the ghoul encounter, the halloween knight , the kids and the demon sex clubbers. Just added another Shadows of Ravenhome...
  3. Some pics from the last couple of Updates... plus, they are allowing the fauns and Centaurs from KS 1 as options when you pick plastic sets.
  4. Thanks! Ok... I sense an early self bough birthday present.
  5. Hello, does anyone have any of the female legends of Signum models? If so could you possibly give a size comparison next to a reaper mini? I am looking to buy Aurora Corentyne the Sword of Aria... but the site says she is 43mm tall... which sounds like she would tower over everything else and be if no use for me... but I can’t find any comparison pics on line. Any one got any?
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rgdgaming/28mm-hard-plastic-satyrs-and-scythians/?ref=kicktraq these guys did the plastic fauns set. This time Its satyrs and Scythians. With unlocks for Scythian cavalry and Amazon’s. im in for the $40 level. It starts at 1 box, but unlocks a second at $6000 and a 3rd at $12,000. Not bad for $40. Shipping is a flat $8. You can mix snd match.., so if you want one each of the plastic sets or all Amazon’s.
  7. The Hydra is cool, as is the elf flying mount... My favorite troops are the Hexes. Though I do appreciate that the Swordsman, and Crossbows are one piece.
  8. I didn’t get any free undead halflings... though from the comments I probably should have, the creator seemed surprised that I didn’t. Not a big deal for me as I have no use for undead halflings. my sorceress on flying mount had a big air bubble on the mount’s torso where the rider torso would attach to the mount. It basically ate the waist and saddle meaning the rider can’t attach. I emailed them and their customer service is great. They said they would replace.
  9. Well... since there seems to be no standard practice with the shipping, it could have been. But... mine did not require a signature... so maybe?
  10. The Jackaks were medium. The Jackal horrors were large. The Alpha should be large. And he is large... but mostly because of the base pillar thing he is on, but he is smaller than the horrors. He could probably pass as medium but won’t fit on a medium base because of the pillar. Edit: I had the Kickstarter photos that showed the units as advertised... but I can’t seem to get the photos to work today... so just imagine...
  11. So, someone pointed out that update 13 says this “ We plan to keep this open for as long as possible until we need to confirm information for fulfillment. So, it should be open until at least June of 2021. “ so looks like it will be open until June.
  12. Only thing the creator has said is “at least 3 months”... so March?
  13. Mine arrived today too. Sucked up most of my attention. I was able to play a bit with stuff at lunch. The sorceress on volocigator is pretty awesome... though I managed to break her so I converted her a bit with some dark elf bits, pretty happy with the stuff I got. Though I have no idea where I will put stuff. I am only 2 units in of like 20 and already no space. oh and I love the jackals but... the jackal alpha is smaller than the jackal horrors... I had thought he would be at least as big as he was more expensive and supposed to be on a 50mm base.
  14. Got access to the pledge survey today. It’s been open since last Monday but there was a bug and some (me included) hadn’t gotten the link, or access, but that’s now been resolved. the survey is pretty nice and straight forward. I finalized my pledge and then promptly went back in and added another box just to make sure I could. I plan on adding another box of soldiers, and maybe a native box and cavalry box before it closes for good. currently I am set for: i basic game box.. that has 2 ships 2 sailor boxes Blackbeard and Maynard snd a loot box as well as 1 more ship 2 boxes of militia 1 pirates of legend 1 soldiers box
  15. My tracking says my shipment should be here... yesterday... then updated to today. Then updated to tomorrow...
  16. well, that’s better news! But kind of makes what they have been saying ... not universally accurate. But my order has now been updated as “picked up by carrier” so ... ah least that’s something. the hydra pic in your other post looks great. I have one of those coming too as part of the elf army.
  17. I had a big long response that got eaten... so here is my summed up response. it seems like there are several steps to their “shipped”. The pm stating shipped isn’t the final step. from what they have said on the message section. Once the pm says shipped, your order is moved to the packing area. There it is packed by the packing team. That team then sends to the shipping team who contact whatever shipping company is used for your area. They then contact that shipper who sends out an email to you with tracking. So it’s sounds like your order is still at the packing stage. Mine is at the shipper sends out email stage. But mine hasn’t shipped yet either. It still just says label created. so.., I think you will get tracking, it’s just not at that stage yet. So we still wait...
  18. Got a tracking notice. The label was created today. So it takes a couple days for them to pack it up after the pm status changes. Excited now. Soon an army of dark elves will make it to maryland after crossing the narrow sea...
  19. Gah...now that the countdown is ticking i kind of want another ship. I have no use for it, have no where to store it... but man do i want it... and I know I will will regret not getting it.
  20. Mine were shipped 2 weeks ago but I haven’t received them yet. I have never had an issue with lost packages but 2 weeks has me worried. I sent them a message to see if they have any tracking as I wasn’t provided any.
  21. I remember someone linking something about the ship being a 6th rate frigate? Does that sound correct? https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sixth-rate if so. That crew amount sounds correct, says 150 crew all in. With up to 30 guns. Sixth-rate ships typically had a crew of about 150–240 men, and measured between 450 and 550 tons. A 28-gun ship would have about 19 officers; commissioned officers would include the captain, and two lieutenants; warrant officers would include the master, ship's surgeon, and purser. The other quarterdeck officers were the chaplain and a Royal Marines lieutenant. The ship also carried the standing warrant officers, the gunner, the bosun and the carpenter, and two master's mates, four midshipmen, an assistant surgeon, and a captain's clerk.[1] The rest of the men were the crew, or the 'lower deck'. They slept in hammocks and ate their simple meals at tables, sitting on wooden benches. A sixth rate carried about 23 marines, while in a strong crew the bulk of the rest were experienced seamen rated 'able' or 'ordinary'. In a weaker crew there would be a large proportion of 'landsmen', adults who were unused to the se
  22. You could send them to the pirate front line... to help defend against the forces of darkness. That front line is Maryland. I can provide you with the address...
