  1. I''m trying to get out of this one without spending a mint. so, so far I'm seeing: Core set - yep Daimyo Expansion - probably. The samurai will be useful in historical skirmish, among other things Dragonfolk - maybe. Got a bunch of dragonborn, more is never bad. Townsfolk - Yep. NPCs and victims for the ghoul/ork invasion. Fantasy Dinos - Tempting. War machines - borderline, probably not Dragons - got a bunch from previous bones, making more redundant, no matter how pretty they are Fire giant - again, got a bunch Mouselings - cute don't cut it for me. Bridge and troll - useful terrain, but probably not Dungeon dwellers - mostly redundant with things I already have.
  2. I'll try for rising sun stuff, but don't expect to get any. So in for the music, I guess.
  3. anyone know what's happening with this? I know asmodee/edge put out an edition a while back, but the 'monthly updates' stopped around the same time.
  4. I am agreeing, while thinking that 1) a lot of the rules are subjective, which is a good thing for some groups and horrible for others, and 2) There is a lot of system mastery needed to play at a basic level. I'm not talking "No called shots unless you've studied those pages", but rather much closer to "No casual players, I'm not in the mood to baby you along." I was hoping for shadowrun 5.5, just fixing some of the rough patches in the last edition. Not what we got.
  5. That isn't an ironwind mini, it's a ral partha mini from the early '90s. I admit it hasn't held up in either quality or ascetic, but it compares not horrably to Reapers first handful of minis.
  6. Mostly compatible. Infantry and tanks got really worked over and buffed. The biggest difference for mechs is the change to the partial cover rules. Instead of +3 to hit and the punch table, it's +1, and leg hits on the standard table hit the ground. Narc got a buff, other assorted trivial differences. The battletech boards have fan articles that describe the various units. Here's an index of the mechs in this kickstarter. Start with the Turkina https://bg.battletech.com/forums/index.php?topic=66378.msg1532123#msg1532123
  7. Worse than that, with the BPV of a shadow-cat or Grendel & a 3/4 pilot, they'll be facing two introtech heavies each, easy. They can do it, it just isn't easy; especially not on two map sheets. Thus why I said the clans are more difficult to play than the inner sphere.
  8. 1) the rules in the clan box are partial 2) The clans are actually a lot harder to play on a point build basis (for most people). They're scalpels who pay a premium for their speed.
  9. OK, got my box(es) a couple days ago I started doing an inventory this morning, and have ran into an issue. You see, I haven't finished (And can't, as my sister already looted a couple, but that's another issue.) The real problem is that I think I have my entire order... Twice over So. Where do we go from here?
  10. paint carefully around the joints and/or before assembly
  11. Surprises me that it isn't picking up more at this point. I'm wondering if CAV hit market saturation with the existing models. I know I'm getting nowhere near as many as I did last time. At this point, what I'm interested in is small CAV, dervish/razor or smaller, as well as vehicles.
  12. There hasn't been much movement in the past few days, but there wasn't at this point in the last kickstarter either. We're actually ahead of where we were. I've got hope of getting those aircraft.
  13. My point exactly - PBG need to close. Since it has EST, it wants to use one action locking on. What do you do with the second, move or shoot? MACs and lasers can successfully engage at range. PBG have difficulty doing so. Third actions are a limited resource 00000 hoping we get to the aircraft, I'd get a bunch. Same with the other vehicles. I've got enough cavs, [impossibru] but I'm getting a core anyway.
  14. Crusader. EST & TC2 If it had MACs I think it'd be the scariest attack role model in the game. It's still first tier.
  15. I'd not object to getting some mecha from previous factions - the spiders in adon would fill a big hole, and more dervish or smaller sized stuff would be nice.
  16. ravenstar has the horrid tanks and APCs; astetic might not be for you, but it looks very, very bio.
  17. Late 2007/early 2008 was a good time to be a Canadian. Our currency had surpassed the USD signifigantly*, and stuff that used to be massively expensive was fairly cheap, cross-border. Now we're dealing with the fact that a decade under the conservative party turned us into a petro-state, and the loonie went down with the price of crude. $50 for the PHB? Yes, PLEASE. *Canadian banks are among the most highly regulated & stable in the world; we were being used as a shelter currency by people who saw the recession coming.
  18. I've had bad bottles of reaper before, but my NMM is good.
  19. I want to back this. If Reaper was running it I probably would. Given what they're obligating themselves to produce and the resources I know of they have to do it, I unfortunately have to pass. Maybe if it was better funded.
  20. I'm still really hesitant to get hardbacks. There was a period in the mid 90's, when I was growing up, where it seemed every hardback I touched fell apart. I think printers were switching tech and hadn't worked out the bugs yet. I should get over it, but watching a a book bought with a huge portion of my money for the year drop half a chapter was distressing.
  21. I hate you all. Although given that for all four (3 bones, 1 cav) kickstarters I've received my stuff early due to international shipping issues, I suppose it's fair for you guys to get lucky this time.
  22. I from a post I saw the other day that the big skeletal dragon from bones one is gone forever. Are any others retired?
  23. is that available for free, or bootleg-able for free? because there is a difference.
  24. I'm a bit worried about the current heavy gear kickstarter. Last time they had problems due to the drop in the Canadian exchange rate. given that the loonie has (again) been dropping since the second kickstarter ended, they might run into the same problems again, but with less funds to act as buffer Or it could all end well. Who knows?
  25. Pathfinder 2nd edition coming. Looks like somewhere between a cleanup and an actual update from what's been press-released.
