  1. You might look at Night Watch by the guy who did Zona Alfa. I only remembered it recently but it might be the easiest for you to modify for a solo game, as it only requires four heroes total. I haven't looked at the book in a while but it might even have stuff in there for just one hero.
  2. Zona Alfa has single player rules. As does Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse. There's also Perilous Tales, which has free beta rules out. But, honestly, any game that has any sort of uncontrolled monster can be a solo game. It just takes a bit to figure out what's enough to present a challenge but not too much of one.
  3. I was thinking about this and I remembered that I picked up "Charlie and SAD-006" for Rezolution. It's a two pack with a monster looking thing and a lady in a jumpsuit with two pistols. It might be something to look at. You'll probably want to check eBay for it, I don't know if the original company is still producing things.
  4. There might be some in StarGrave range on North Star.
  5. Seeing how the armies have been in boxes for years, any reason to start painting them again is a good reason...
  6. I looked through my art books, as I do for inspiration, and decided I need more. I bought more Luis Royo books. And then saw a print for a reasonable price. So... Now I have to wait for that to arrive.
  7. This is on of my favorites, because I've been on both ends of it...
  8. I am the keeper of the old memes.
  9. So, I did a bad. Okay, not a real bad. I happened to have some extra money and the craft store was right there, so I thought I would just check for a few things. And I found several things I'd been looking for. On sale. I picked up some off brand Micron pens, some brushes that might work for minis, and some acrylic craft paint to use on Bones terrain. I didn't spend too much.
  10. Wow. It's been almost a year since I've posted in this thread. Mostly because I keep forgetting about it. I played a few games a few months ago and found out just how tough Dricheans are and how tough my tough list is. I have a list with three crossbows and three bows and, due to some bad placement of terrain, I got picked apart by my friend. After that game, my friend and I started working on a few changes we're thinking about using, mostly having weapons have damage ratings and changing how armor works. I still like this game but it's so hard to get games in these days. 😕
  11. I'd disagree with that. While the wizard and apprentice are more versatile, the Heritor and warden have better health and combat. I mean, the warden has the same stats as a wizard but doesn't suffer health loss if they fail to cast the spell. Also, GA crews are usually going to be larger, as they're easier to fill out with free crewmen. I'm actually thinking of having a friend run a FG warband against one of my GA crews when we get a chance.
  12. I have two full armies I have touched in years and you're tempting me to dig them out and finish painting them, before giving this a try...
  13. If you search on YouTube, there's a great (but long) video explaining exactly what an NFT is, how they came about, and how shady they are. The video is called "The Line Goes Up" and it may have caused the NFT crash, that's how shady things were.
  14. You... You play games? With other people? I joke. I rarely play games with painted stuff (I'm a very slow painter and I haven't be able to hang out with people since 2020) but I have been pretty good at "Before you start touching, let me tell you a few things..." to people who aren't familiar with minis. I also don't touch other people's minis any more, its just easier that way...
  15. I just wanted to pop in and say thanks to those who recommended Turbo Dork's Spicy Meatball paint. It worked for the first project I needed it for. Reaper's Ruby red makes an excellent undercoat for it. Now, back to painting.
  16. I haven't tried using one myself, as I just got a folio a little while ago, but I'm also curious to what experiences people have. I'm very much on the fence about having one in a group.
  17. Quarantine 37 turned up and I don't know what to make of it. The two mini campaigns are nice but they're so short. I'll have to play through it and see how I feel after that.
  18. I have those and they are shrimpy. In addition to what zenjw said, being monopose and small, they're also really bendy and a few of mine won't stand up right because of it. If you're looking for cheap and in 28mm scale, I've found quite a few Zombiecide boxes for about $20-25 and they have about two dozen minis in the Walk of the Dead, with I think three of 6 different sculpts. I found it to be the most price effective, when I was looking to getting into Last Days: Zombie Apocalypse.
  19. I have a ton of Reaper zombies and the first Walk Of The Dead from Zombiecide, so I'm pretty sure I have enough. But I'll also have the scale problem, if I have to use the Walk zombies. Oh, that's a good idea. I'll have to give that some thought after I get a chance to read the book.
  20. Dracula's America has the Emissary of Dagon, made by North Star, that should have a dress and tentacles.
  21. I'm looking forward to giving it a shot. I have more than enough zombies (I hope, I think I have over 30 at this point) but I don't think I have enough bugs. I'll deal with that problem after I play the zombie stuff. My copy also turned up yesterday and I haven't looked through the campaign completely yet. I was happy for the new crew and other stuff, however. I'm really happy to have melee combat crew, so I can use some minis I got a while back. As far as I've read, I agree with you, this campaign is really a good thing for a consistent group to play with. I'd love to try it with four players, as it would be a fun bit of chaos. Oddly enough, Gods of Fire is the one Ghost Archipelago supplement that I didn't pick up.
  22. Well, that sold me on Q37... After I already ordered some books for Ghost Archipelago and pre-ordered SpellJammer... My wallet weeps.
