  1. On Friday we got our Middara group back together for some in person gaming again. That is such a fun game, I'm glad we were able tog et back to it. I don't think we have too many more scenarios left before this part of the game is over. Then on Saturday we played the new version of Kemet called Kemet: Blood and Sand. Middara's Butcher being all ugly and mean. (NOT painted by me) Kemet with some monsters on the board. The Deep Desert Snake (in the back, out of focus) and the Phoenix are in play. Thoth and Apophis, the sea serpent, are just hanging out for fun
  2. Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet. Set in Ancient Egypt, you gain powerful abilities and monsters by building pyramids of various colors. Emerald/Green is a completely new color to this version and adds new mechanics and a bit more of a sinister feel. It brings in the ability to sacrifice your troops for enhanced powers, and summoning gods to the table that behave similar to, but slightly different from, creatures. In addition, if you want a more Lovecraftian feel, you can replace the two core gods with Lovecraftian gods/monsters that are mechani
  3. My secret is that the black is actually brown. Walnut Brown is a great black alternative.
  4. Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet. Set in Ancient Egypt, you gain powerful abilities and monsters by building pyramids of various colors. Onyx/Black was first introduced in an expansion to the original game, but it is now part of the core game of Kemet. All the Onyx figures - Spear Clan Mercenaries - Sword Clan Mercenaries - Khnum's Sphinx - Griffin Sphinx - Amout, The Soul Devourer -
  5. Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet. Set in Ancient Egypt, you gain powerful abilities and monsters by building pyramids of various colors. White/Diamond was the last color that was in the original core game. It is mainly focused on economic power, so there are only two creatures. Diamond duo - The Deep Desert Snake - The Mummy -
  6. A picture for scale. The unpainted figure is a standard unit in the game -
  7. As far as scale goes, yes. The unpainted figure is a standard unit/soldier in the game.
  8. Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet. Set in Ancient Egypt, you gain powerful abilities and monsters by building pyramids of various colors. If you work on you Sapphire pyramid, you can buy some of the creatures featured below (assuming your opponents don't grab them first). The blue crew - Ancestral Elephant - The Sphinx - The (optional) Sandworm -
  9. They are at "tiny-humans-so-they-can-fit-on-monsters-that-fit-on-the-gameboard" scale. There is no common scale in this game. I'll be posting other creatures today who's humans are a tiny bit larger, and the typical human figure comes up to the arm on Sir Forscale. I'll try to get a picture of them all together.
  10. The game is set in Ancient Egypt, so that is thematically appropriate.
  11. Kemet: Blood and Sand is a reworking/second version of the popular game Kemet. The original game had 3 colors of power tiles, with a 4th in an expansion. This new version has 5 colors total, 4 of which can be used in a 5 player game. You can buy power tiles to make your armies better, or get more stuff, or to command monsters on the table. I am a little worried there will be some confusion as there are red armies as well, but honestly, if you can't remember if the giant scorpion is on your side or not, you probably need to pay attention more. Ruby has the most creatures (sort
  12. My friend came up for a visit this past weekend, so I was able to get a few games in. We started with some Dune: Imperium. We played a few games of this, but I did best with the good old Baron. Also I had a plan, which I didn't have the previous two games. This was my first time playing it at 2 and 3 players, and I prefer it to the solo version. I'm pretty sure my friend bought this one before she left back home. Star Wars: Outer Rim was the next game we played. Particularly fun if you get into the theme. I will say that my first game I fell behind early a
  13. I started painting the figures in Adventure Tactics: Domianne's Tower mostly to get myself back into the groove after not painting for a while. Which is a good thing since I just got two Kickstarters that have a few more minis that may need painting up. Adventure Tactics is a campaign style board game that feels a lot like the video game Final Fantasy Tactics (and similar, I preferred Vandal Hearts). It isn't as heavy as Gloomhaven or Middara, which is fine. Choosing your character and how they level is where a lot of the fun for this game comes from. Your wizard can become a
  14. Finished Genndy Tartakovsky's Primal. What an awesome show. It follows a cave man/Neanderthal and his dinosaur friend as they survive a whole lot of fantastical stone age problems. Some problems are a bit more grounded, and some are less so. But it all still feels like a mostly real world setting. Outside of one person speaking in the final episode, the closest thing to dialogue is a bunch grunting and shouting. The art and audio need to carry this show, and they do. Practically every frame is poster worthy. Highly recommended, particularly if you like experim
  15. With the Memorial Day holiday, we were able to get together and play a few games. Mostly Atlantis Rising and Take 5. Atlantis Rising is a cooperative game where you have to build a bunch of widgets to get your doohickey working. To do this, you are given a special boss worker and some minions. Your boss worker has special powers, including the power to ignore the suffering of the minions when they escape on their doohickey as Atlantis sinks to the bottom of the ocean. Its a fun cooperative game that you can play with 7 people. Everything's fine here. How are y
