    Catalyst Game Labs: BattleTech Clan Invasion box set

    Thank you for the replies. Definitely useful information. But let me ask this differently. Are the Star/Lance packs assembled with some kind of theme in mind, or are they effectively a random assortment? If they are thematic, what battlefield roles are best to address as a beginner? And thank you! That was really helpful! Oh, and I'm not ruling out Star Colonel yet. I did buy the AGoAC box. Should be delivered in a few days.

    So...if I'm effectively a noob but want a decent mix of IS and Clan stuff, what kind of recommendations would you all have for Star/Lance packs to choose? At Bloodnamed level....

    Talked with my wargame buddy. We both ordered the AGoAC box yesterday. He's likely in at Bloodnamed and I'll probably be at Star Colonel.

    Legends of Signum Dragon Hunters - 8/20

    Well well....I'm intrigued.

    I'm well beyond the days of pledging for a game simply to get the minis, so I'll pass. Didn't I say that slow funding could end up being a good thing for backers though?

    I'm likely to wait for retail too. But saw the AGoAC boxed set for $42 online, so might take the plunge on that one this week. Going to discuss with a friend first.

    Thanks for the information everybody! I'm still just a watcher for now.

    Is there any reason to get the beginner box and the regular AGoAC box? I'm actually considering Star Colonel if this thing gets to 1.5MM, but still haven't pledged.

    Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    Anybody that didn't get the Gambler's Chest is going to be kicking themselves...hard. I'm guessing the price will be $275 when the pledge manager opens again. It was $200 last time, wasn't it? I await The KING!
  10. I'm actually finding that printing gaming miniatures is a bit troublesome on my FDM printer. Mostly the supports being an issue. Works great for terrain though.

    I watched the gameplay overview last night. Drawing chits out of a bag to simulate combat? Not really any sense of excitement there for me.

    WarLayer 3D Printable Terrain

    And since there are never enough terrain projects, I thought I'd give this one a mention. Supposedly everything prints without supports too. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/warlayer/warlayer-3d-printable-terrain-0?ref=section-homepage-view-more-recommendations-p1

    You guys are making this really hard to resist.

    Clorehaven & the Goblin Grotto

    I'm still just watching, but resistance is fraying at the edges a bit....

    Probably the best thing for backers is that this thing doesn't go very fast. I think Hate really underperformed from their expectations, so they ended up making the stretch goal gaps narrower than they normally do toward the end. If I remember correctly.

    Awaken Realms Etherfields

    I would definitely recommend watching some game play before you decide. To me, it's an interesting idea with really lackluster mechanics. For how they are billing this as a dreamscape, anything should be possible. But as Ced described, it's more of a "I need this color, but only have other colors. Guess I'll just end my turn" kind of thing. Oh, and Aku-Chan...yes, it was the library encounter. Zzzzzzzz....

    Awaken Realms Etherfields

    There is already a thread for this. I dropped this one too. Watched one of the Rolling Solo scenario play through videos (part 4, I believe) and was pretty much bored through the whole thing. Yes, there can be a sense of discovery, but the "monster" was a non-factor throughout the entire scenario.

    Clorehaven & the Goblin Grotto

    You'll have lots of fun printing these, I'm sure. I already bought a bunch of other stuff, so I might try to resist. I don't know that I agree. There is a pretty large number of unique parts for the price. But if you wouldn't use many of the parts, then I would definitely agree.

    I didn't need to see this.....

    I dropped out. Just wasn't feeling it.

    Pirates of the Dread Sea by Tabletop Games

    I'm watching for now, but I do love me some pirates.

    Centaurs

    Hi all, I'm in the market for somewhere between 10 and 20 centaurs. I already have multiples of the Reaper ones, but I'd like to add some variety at approximately the same scale. I prefer that female ones aren't topless, but not a big deal if they are. What are some options that I can check out? I definitely want to keep the price as reasonable as I can. Thanks for any ideas.

    Centaurs

    Thanks everybody! I have a few of the ones mentioned, and now I know some good places to look for others.

    Middara: Unintentional Malum - The Complete Trilogy

    I dropped out. Sadly, I just don't think I'll get my friends interested in 30 minutes of narrative before actually playing a game. I know you can kind of skip it, but since that's a big part of the experience....

    Middara: Unintentional Malum - The Complete Trilogy

    I haven't fully decided, but suspect that I'm going to bump up to the full she-bang in the pledge manager.
