  1. I wrote off my pledge 6 years ago from the last kickstarter I joined and I've never seen the model, they make some lovely miniatures, but won't ever get a penny from me again.

    But what about all those Kickstarter exclusives!? Your life will be so much better if you had them. Imagine going to a party and bringing them along to show off. The guys will be jealous, the ladies fawning over you, all impressed by your amazing ability to back this Kickstarter that they didn't! They'll all be so impressed with your investment insight that they'll just start throwing money at you, making this $100 investment (plus probably another $500 in shipping because it's CMON) trivialized with your new Bezosian wealth!

     

    Or you could not back it. If it makes you feel better, I'm sure there is technically a chance that you won't spend the rest of your life regretting it...

     

    Now you've really made the decision harder.

  3. It cannot pick up metals very good.....I'm actually suprised at the back lash, these look the same quality as what was displayed in the kickstarter.

     

    These are far more zoomed in than the images they showed, during the kickstarter, but they've always had that chalking grainy look. Exactly the reason why I just went for .stl files. I think the bugger the ck trast between light and shade also work better.

    Since I had a bit of free time, I downloaded the sample tile and printed a version on my FDM printer, and a version on my Resin printer.

     

    This first photo is FDM, printed on an Ender 3 with the miniatures profile from Fat Dragon Games.  It's not visible in this photo, but there is a little up-curl on one of the corners, but it doesn't affect how the tile sits on the table.

    This photo is of the resin version, printed on an Epax X1 using Anycubic standard Grey at 0.05 layer height.  The sample included a pre-supported STL, and I must say that I wasn't a fan of how the supports were built.  They used the Cone shape for where the support touched the build plate.  Each support was far enough from it's neighbors that they needed to be individually scraped off.  Not a huge issue, but definitely was a nuisance.

    I'll be priming them up and putting quick paint jobs this weekend.

    I'm loving the quality of the resin....makes me excited about getting my Anycubic Photon S...although I wont have a clue what I'm doing.

  5. Watched the first new "Picard" episode, enjoyed it, had the star trek feel of the past.

     

    However it was tinged with a bit of sadness, having grown up with TNG and a lot of my morals and look on life coming from it. It was sad to see an older frailer Picard....suppose it was seeing age taking effect.

     

    Looking forward to how the series will progress.

    As an aside. There are some companies, Like Impact Miniatures, that offer resin printing for your hero forge mini... I did this, and it worked out to about half price vs ordering direct from Heroforge. I bought the .STL, uploaded it to Impact and got my mini from them.  My next Heroforge mini would likely go this route again. 

     

    This is something I have considered, but my experience of 3D printing is pretty much nil. So if anyone knows a good miniature 3D printing service in the uk that can top heroforge 3D printing and PM me, I'll just get the .stl files.

    From the team behind hit games Hellboy: The Board Game and Dungeon Saga: The Dwarf’s Kings Quest, League of Infamy is an occasionally co-operative dungeon crawler for up to 5 players, where it pays to commit dastardly deeds and partake in foul thievery – often against your own party.

    Join a rogue’s gallery of misfits, ne’er-do-wells and miscreants on a disgraceful mission to kidnap cute little baby Drakons, steal their eggs and viciously wipe out any irritating, goody-goody Elves that try to stop your nefarious schemes.

    But it’s not just the Elves you’ll need to keep a wary eye on. Your fellow (mis)adventurers are just as likely to betray you and steal your loot, shove you into harm’s way or just leave you in a dungeon full of unbeatable foes. As they like to say in the League of Infamy – ‘keep your enemies close but keep your friends at knifepoint’.

    In the limited edition No Half Measures expansion, you must investigate reports of an ancient form of long-forgotten magic: gastromancy! Deal with halflings as strong as an ogre or tricky traps with toxic poisons. It's not all bad though, because you might come across a tasty pie or two to loot!

    In the Kickstarter Exclusive Siren's Wrath expansion, the League is furious that the Trident Realm is messing with one of its most important trade routes... which absolutely won't do! You're sent in to raid the Trident Realm keep and gather as many goods as you can. However, this will be your hardest mission yet, as the Keep Master takes advantage of the aquatic landscape to boost their Defenders.

    Well, it's not like your average modern-day person knows how to use a gun -- particularly when they see zombies. Search on "gun vs. knife".

     

    Thanks to Hollywood, not only do we think guns hit everything (except the main character), but also cause bad guys to be flung backwards through saloon windows... <_<

    True but when I shoot into a room filled with zombies and poor Timmy ends up with 15 holes in him, I then try a bow and arrow and add an extra 10 arrows to his corpse...something's not quite right.

     

    I even stood next to the door with my gun on a zombies head and managed to shoot Timmy instead.
