  1. Im beginning to suspect I've been time travelling again. If so this will end with a lot of very cool minis and a sad me as I didn't back it in time. yet. I'm confused.
  2. This is really weird. The figures look incredibly familiar to me from a few months ago. Like another kickstarter that had even more figures added to the core set. Is this a relaunched kickstarter? If not, I wonder what kickstarter I'm thinking of with cool sci-fi miniatures that happened a few months ago?
  3. Wondering if there's a place to see the Spartan and Amazon living statues without the fig leaves in the way. You know...for science. Actually, we just want to see how they're sculpted. for painting. and science.
  4. I forgot to say I asked on facebook and they said it'd launch in about a month. I know, I'm disappointed to have to wait so long too.
  5. A cool vehicle would be awesome. Definitely want.
  6. I'd like to see more modern characters. They don't need to be carrying anything either but just more modern role-playing characters.
  7. Friday night I prepared my new nigh-invulnerable army list: Overlords. It was a simple list: Andras AriK 4 Onyx Phalanx 3 Crossbows ______________ Lorena Strach 3 Onyx Phalanx 2 Crossbows _______________ Onyx Golem _______________ Incarnation of Flame The strategy was going to be simple, using my Ranked and Lock Shields, pelt the enemy at range and rely on First Strike to murderize my opponent. All the while my mages would pound any troop concentrations with fire. So, what did Jason bring? That's right, Overlords! It was an Overlord/Overlord power struggle. He'll probably chime in with his list to correct my lousy memory but it was something like: Andras 2 Bondslave Survivor 3 Daughter of the whip 6 troops of: Corvus 2 Bonslave Survivor 3 Daughter of the Whip Battle Totem He had the advantage of numbers and initiative. I had magic and ranged and First Strike. On the first turn he advanced as fast as he could. At my last activations, I had Strach teleport the Incarnation of Flame into his back field behind his troops. I was going to have him charge the totem and negate it while daring his troops to pass Ld checks to charge his Fearsome-ness. He promptly charged it with one troop and got all but one Bondslave Survivor into b-t-b and hit it enough times to kill it's parents and grandparents too while I got ONE hit back. The game kinda devolved from there. He spread out enough to limit my magic to a few kills, my dice did the rest. My ranged killed a few but otherwise my dice abandoned me pretty fast while his hit.......a lot. He rolled up one side and then mobbed the other. When I needed 3s and 4s I got 1s and 2s. It was a funny game watching my troops melt faster than butter outdoors but a sad fate to troops who could have done so much more. I could have made it a tougher struggle for Jason had I retreated and fired on his troops but with my dice, i don't think the extra 2 or 3 kills would have justified the extra time it would have taken. That and I'm too much of a grab-you-by-the-face-and-scream kinda tactician. Next week's re-match will be interesting though. Jason suggested a 1000 pt 10 model max army meeting. Should be fun. DRG
  8. I'd take a variant on an army I took to ruin against a very shooty Razig army: Vasyl with Magic Weapon, Ironhide, and Eye of the Ancestors (the magic weapon is really just to soak points, his MAV is already gross enough without the add on) 3X Ragon the Blooded all with Ironhide 5X Rageclaw Sentry Musician ('cause the only thing funnier than fast puppies is turbo bosted puppies ) Luck Stone Spirit Wolf 2 Troops 3 initiative 10 models
  9. Man, I miss Mekton. I played with my friends in college and had a blast designing my own stuff. Great games. Now my books hide upstairs in a box.
  10. Oh, man. A Warlord fight in a dungeon! (wipes drool from face) I think that should be a must for next Reapercon.
  11. Whether you use books for buildings and cups for silos for a town or fight on the empty plains is up to you. You can use as much or as little terrain as you like. Terrain can be a blessing or a curse. It limits mobility yet offers cover. It really is up to you. So if you go sans terrain, I say enjoy. (I will say if you want some inexpensive easily stored terrain, look at small plants at your local craft store.= or even pet store. You can glue down to old cd's to make patches of plant growth pretty easily)
  12. Yeah, if you go to the palladium website and click on the Kickstarter article on the main page to read more, the photo is there. This looks really cool and, definitely, harkens to my Battletech days.
  13. Reaper customer service is amazing. I wrote to them this morning. My web order included Razig but his hat and hand with cutlass were missing from the blister pack. They already wrote back and are sending the missing parts. Soon he'll be reunited with his favorite hat! I'm with Inarah, the part that impresses me is that this makes the second time in 10 years I've gotten something with a missing piece. And they jumped right on it. Don't see that level of service elsewhere. And my personal thanks to Adrienne.
  14. Cool, thanks for suggestions and links. I probably won't start the next version (western house mk.ii) until later in the week. Will post it as it works up and will be taking my time on it.
  15. Okay, So we've seem some really awesome terrain on the forum lately so let's step this down a notch. I wanted to build a western themed building. As a small testbed for some ideas on putting my own together, I started this small shack. I will admit I got a bit rushed in it and threw it together with less care than it needed but it taught me a lot that will make the next one much nicer. It's not hideous. It's just not that good. I started with a pretty solid feeling foam core structure onto which I glued wooden sticks. I worked on each of the walls separately which made construction harder as the finished walls wouldn't match up properly due to the wood clashing. The individual walls of it went together fairly well but I needed to spend more time making sure of the cuts before assembling (see the part where I rushed it). I had really good ideas with the windows too but ended up blowing past that without trying to make it happen and without serious consideration of how I was going to put the frames together. On the next one, I'll try to make the windows and doors a lot cleaner. I really wanted to have a white painted trim along the edges of the building to make it look nicer but couldn't quite figure out how to do that. I'm certainly open to any suggestions. Overall, not bad for a fast throw together but not what I'd be proud to toss on the tabletop. In the process of building this I learned about what really caused the decline of the Old West. See if you can spot it.
  16. Wow, such amazing details in here. I wish I was half this talented!
  17. I put everything back in the box except for two stacks. One bag has stuff I want to paint for the near future projects. The other bag has later projects. Immediate use toys are already clogging my painting table.
  18. Is this one of those tough bars? I'll have a milk with a single human hair in it.
  19. Very cool. I'd be tempted by doing fire effect for hair and dark horns. Can't wait for more pics.
  20. Too true, Obsidium. I blame myself for not taking notes of my bi-monthly beatings from Dan. And Jason. And Jeff. Or of my various wins. I don't have a good working camera for taking pics tho. So, NO PICS! But I can post results more. As for you, Dan. We have a whole year to make new lists.
