  1. The only reason I can think of for something like that is you want the game to be more like a boardgame instead of a tabletop miniatures game... not that anything is wrong with that, I am falling in love with the game LOKA at the moment, but then again I always did like an interesting game of chess.


    Soooo, just out of curiosity, why do you want to use a hex/square board?

  2. Humansquish,

    I am still getting familiar with the Bones product, that said I do like the larger figures like dragons well enough (though I would still love to replace my Kaladrax with a real metal model - I just like the "heft" and "feel" of the large metal model) anyway... with regards to your post above, doesn't the bones material "flex" a bit, cracking or chipping the paint/sealer on your minis when they are handled like that?

    I am an old school lead/pewter/white metal kind of guy and just trying to understand why "plastic" seems to be gaining so much popularity in miniatures (besides cost)... The last "plastic" soldiers I had were the green army type and I personally have no desire to collect those. (No offense to anyone who might - they're just not my cup of tea.)

    Thanks in advance for the info.

    I think that a huge problem is that the gaming market in general is pretty crowded.  It would take a pretty big push to get Warlord going again and a lot of effort to keep it going.  Perhaps the best chance would be spinning the game off like they did with CAV.   Still the best chance might not be that high.


    I agree that Bones models would be interesting.  



    Spinning Warlord off like CAV would probably be the death knell to any future the game might still have (imho)... I was an ardent CAV supporter back in the day, but have zero desire to get involved in the new CAV as it is too different from the old fun game that I still occasionally get a chance to play.


    I am not really a huge Bones fan either, except for some of the larger models, but being able to buy an Army Box (7-9 minis) for $20 might make me think twice about that position again.

  4. You can get all of the available cards for Crusaders, Darkreach, Darkspawn, Nefsokar and Tembrithil by going here:



    Go to the faction, then click on the model you need the card for, then click the "Data Card" tab to get the card (you can right-click and save the card graphic).


    Sorry, I had not gotten to the rest of the factions before the data card search went down.

  5. You can always identify units by writing with a sharpie on the underside... All of my Reaper hex bases have ridges underneath that basically keep the writing from being scratched off by movement on rough surfaces (if you write in the textured area between the ridges) - or you can paint a portion of one edge (or the whole edge) of the base a particular color to designate squads - similar to what Vytau said above, just not on the helmets.  :poke:

  6. I have them mounted 4 to a base - I guess when I got my infantry during the first releases, way back when the galaxy was a free-for-all, not a lot of info was out there... maybe it's time to get some more and go with the 3 figures per base, then I can use these for SA as mentioned by Vil-hatarn and ThatDeadGuy. ;)
