  1. Thanks for the recommendations everyone. These look much more manageable!
  2. If I’m going to be basing 100 minis, that’s an awful lot of kneading. Maybe good for my handshake, but I’d like something that applies quicker.
  3. I’m sure this one has been seen before, but the search page isn’t returning the answer very easily. I’m wondering what substance folks like for building up the ground on a base if they opt to retain the broccoli base when gluing a Reaper figure to a plastic base. Sometimes one just wants a more solid bond, other times the feet or other details are just too likely to get sliced if one trims the base down to just the connecting points. In particular, I’m looking for thoughts on alternatives to green stuff that would be easier to use in building up some ground around the broccoli base before ultimately adding grit and other texture to the lot. Thanks!
  4. Has anyone seen a good breakdown of how much D&L one would need to build a 3x3 skirmish table, preferably with multiple levels? I haven’t really managed to try out any standard RPGs, so not sure hallways and rooms will be super useful. But a city landscape for something like Frostgrave or Burrows and Badgers is very intriguing. Thanks!
  5. Yeah. It’s not like it is totally unusable. Just an example of why brilliant creative types need to partner with hard-headed project manager types. And I know TTW may have skewed my expectations. What they manage to do with resin is almost unreal. They may be actual wizards.
  6. Received one of the two pieces I ordered (where the other is and why it wasn’t in the more than capacious box that arrived is anyone’s guess). I hadn’t really expected much after watching reactions from others who had received theirs, and those expectations were just about met. I got the apothecary/wizard tower. The main tower piece is not flush with the base piece (it is off by a good 2-3mm, whether by warping or poor design/casting). The two pieces also appear to be different sizes (if you line up one wall, the upper stones for the windows no longer align with the lower, etc.). The magnets are pretty much useless, lacking even enough snap to help align the pieces, much less hold them in place if even lightly bumped. They would have been better off designing the pieces with physical interlocks. There’s a fair amount of flash and some pitting. The level of fine detail is nothing to write home about (and the undersides of overhangs are perfectly smooth). Considering the price was not much less than a Tabletop World piece of similar size, I’m not impressed. It is a shame, since the project had a lot of potential and a unique aesthetic. As is, I can’t really imagine this ever getting to the front of my queue ahead of higher quality terrain pieces, even if they will do something about the physical misalignment (I’m assuming they can’t even if they wanted to; I suspect their entire stock is riddled with these problems, which would explain the history of the project). With the amount of cleanup and sculpting work necessary as things currently stand, there’s no way.
  7. I’m sure CMON will helpfully package those up into an all-in pledge for you. Talk about customer service!
  8. What are the odds on Deadpool. Haven’t been following all the licensing drama there. If they can do him, my money would be on an expansion box rather than a stretch goal.
  9. Would surprise me if it was anything different. For board games, resin seems to be seriously niche (KDM) and metal is unheard of. But no, I haven’t heard officially. We will know for sure on Monday though.
  10. They are plastic, if Pantheon is anything to go by. Good detail for plastic, however.
  11. Excellent sculpts and excellent service. I’ve scaled way back on KS after realizing how finite storage space is. Burrows and Badgers is one of my few remaining insta-backs. Really looking forward to the next batch.
  12. I’ve heard rumblings from one of Monolith’s lead writers on Conan that MBR will have elements usable in Conan as well, for those who have both systems. There is some more art up on their page as well: Frost Giant Thor Berserker Brunhild Shieldmaiden
  13. Their last MBP was a couple months late. Both Batman KSs were basically on time. Only one I know of that is outstanding is Conan, which is being produced right now and will also be a couple months late. Overall, I would say Monolith are much more timely and reliable than Mythic. They are also one of the most careful companies when it comes to overpromising in the heat of a campaign or getting carried away with stretch goals.
  14. On a related note, anyone have a good recommendation for quay or dock scenery (including gangways)?
  15. Man. Caved to the FOMO (and the image in my mind’s eye of having a dockside skirmish map a la Fire Emblem). At least I will have somewhere to live once that giant box arrives?
