    Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    I may go that route as well, especially since I only ordered two minis and they're both in the initial release.

    Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    Yeah, communication has been scattered across the KS, various FB pages, Paizo's forums...but as far as I've gathered, Archon has purchased (at their own expense) all rights to the line. They're re-issuing all models in multi-part plastic rather than the original resin, and will be releasing them in waves as funds allows alongside their own regular releases. Backers can receive all currently released models owed to them as an add-on to any order from Archon, or they can wait and have them sent periodically (I believe the floated timeframe was every six months) as the volume becomes high enough for Archon to eat the cost of shipping. There may be some additional nuance for US backers, for whom distribution is still being handled by Ninja Division.

    Happy Birthday Vil-hatarn

    Thanks everyone!

    Probably new, as I understand it Ninja Division retains the rights to their sculpts from this project. Also note that the new line is prepaints only--I'm guessing we won't see unpainted Starfinder models until this KS is resolved.
  5. As mentioned in the Pathfinder AP thread, I'm willing to run the Kingmaker kingdom-building/wilderness exploration Adventure Path if there's interest. Though I'm still considering particulars, I will likely deviate to some degree from the adventure as written, may utilize some house rules, and will almost definitely use a restricted set of character options for my own sanity, as the entirety of Pathfinder published material is becoming somewhat overwhelming. I'd be looking for anywhere from 4 to 8 players; both Kingmaker and the PbP format lend themselves to a larger group than I would be comfortable running for in-person. I'll be traveling with limited computer access next week, so let's say if there's sufficient interest I'll follow up with details on the 23rd or thereabouts. And that makes eight! We are now full with Dilvish, Qwyk, ShadowRaven, Bionicspacejelly, Marvin, Unit04, Kangaroorex, and Flamehawke. I suppose since everyone sounds fairly eager to stake out their characters, I'll come up with the character creation guidelines now. I'm hesitant to ban anything outright as with eight players we'll need some variety, but basically the older the better for character options, especially major ones like classes. I would strongly prefer to stick to core races, and given your numbers I would discourage 'pet' options. Beyond that, I'm willing to consider anything (even third party if it's solid), just run it by me so we don't have the setup of a bad joke (three bloodragers, an occultist, and a ninja walk into a bar... ) Everyone should take a look at the Kingmaker Player's Guide (free download). Provides some background, some advice for class and race choices, and a selection of campaign traits. I'll provide a full intro later, but the basic hook is that you've all been recruited by a Rostlander noble as her private army to retake the Stolen Lands at the behest of the Aldori swordlords. Character Generation: Ability Scores: 15-point buy Hit Points: max at 1st Starting Gold: class average Traits: two traits, one of which should probably be a campaign trait Alignment: evil discouraged, but PM me if you think you can do it well House Rules: Ability score increases at all even levels Two-weapon fighters can attack once with each as a standard action Strain-Injury HP: essentially, most damage heals automatically with a short rest, with only severe injuries requiring divine healing or bed rest. XP: Ad hoc, approximately twice the rate of the fast track as I'll be handwaving or removing "filler" encounters to maintain pacing Players: Characters Bionicspacejelly: half-orc druid? Dilvish: Alexi Dromange, human (Chelaxian) fighter (swordlord) Flamehawke: Vonthra Valnore, dwarf paladin (stonelord) of Damerrich Kangaroorex: Ellandar, elf witch Marvin: dwarf ranger? Qwyksilver: human rogue (reformed brigand) ShadowRaven: Beremor Stoneshield/Garess, dwarf wizard Unit04: Aldrath Klockburn, gnome cleric of Brigh

    Yowch, sounds exhausting! Hope it all calms down soon.

    So, super late to the party here, but if anyone wants to get an idea of how the game plays, check out Geek and Sundry's live play show Shield of Tomorrow which used this ruleset, it's pretty great.
  8. Went to see Captain Marvel last night, and it was amazing. The writers did an unbelievable job incorporating elements of the Kelly Sue DeConnick comics. Without going too far into spoiler territory, "Chewie" did not disappoint. Can't wait to see her back in Endgame!

    New England Paint Day

    I could use an excuse to dig my paints out. March is no good but my weekends in April are wide open.

    Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    That's a shame. I only pledged for a few singletons but quite liked the designs, was looking forward to painting them. Rough for all of the backers who went all-in, especially after Paizo vouched for Soda Pop despite the red flags.

    [Pathfinder] Kingmaker AP Discussion

    Yeah, I'd be happy to fill in a spot, maybe something on the ranger/rogue/swashbuckler spectrum given the remaining active characters. I've skimmed the entire adventure path but can keep to character.

    [Pathfinder] Kingmaker AP Discussion

    Great, I'll pull together what I've got and send it over. The transition from book one to two is a perfect opportunity to move some characters around/add some new ones, if needed.

    [Pathfinder] Kingmaker AP Discussion

    Sorry, only just seeing this--I'd be happy to pass it over. PM me if you go ahead with it and I'll pull together what I can as far as notes and tweaks to the published module that would be useful for you.

    Where are the Spider and Scorpion?

    Made alongside the "BigTator" kit, way back in the early days. Unfortunately there was a problem with the casting and most of them were unusable.

    Where are the Spider and Scorpion?

    Would love to see the Scorpion re--released based on the enhanced model made for the ill-fated resin kit. A man can dream...

    Where are the Spider and Scorpion?

    CavBOSS dropped them from the official game. They were given datacards as a concession to the numerous older players who wanted to be able to use them in home games. They were Open models in CAV2; the way CAV:SO divided the models, they'd most likely be listed as Adon.

    I'll be looking towards November, personally...brother's getting married and a couple major MtG events in October.

    Welp I completely fell off the wagon on this one, sorry guys . Realistically, I don't think I'm going to be able to pick it back up in the immediate future--school's been demanding a lot of my time lately. I'll try and get some kind of epilogue post together in the next couple of weeks and if I find myself with more free time in a semester or two maybe we could pick it back up. Thank you all for playing--you were a great group to GM for.

    I was a late backer so maybe that explains why I'm completely out of the loop here. I received an elf operative (1 of 2 models I ordered) out of the blue a few days ago, then just today got an email stating that the elf was shipping today. So I guess I'll find out in a few days if mine time-traveled or if I'm getting extras The email also mentioned tracking but didn't provide a link--maybe they normally provide tracking, but aren't on the KS orders?

    Sound Off for CAV II KS!

    ***I will put it up in a bit. We are working on it now. "CAVBoss" No Fire Drake yet, but all the plastic is listed.

    harebrained schemes battletech tactical game

    My laptop's been running a little toasty as well. Might look at turning it down if it's been a serious issue... Game's pretty sweet. Had one random CTD during a mission launch but otherwise it's been running great. Missions have gone smoothly so far, with the slight exception of the first main quest mission. Came out of that one with three injured pilots and all four 'mechs in need of serious repairs, took over a month of game time just to field a 3-man lance for my next mission.

    I assemble as much as I can without making it impossible to reach anywhere (like the underside of a CAV torso); then I usually paint the hard-to-reach spots and finish assembly before painting the rest of the model. With Bones I feel it's more viable to paint unassembled if that's your preference as there's less risk of paint chipping during assembly compared to metal models.

    Probably won't see me, busy month for M:tG (stoked for the new Dominaria set). Only days that might work out would be the 22nd, 28th, and 29th.
