  1. I don't need another $100+ dungeoncrawl, but a $40+ one? Hmm... maybe. The Tiny Epic gameline has a strong following on BGG. I haven't played too many of their games, so do your research. The few games I've played seemed to balance out theme, Euro rules, and streamlined play. As far as I can tell, only the Potions expansion will not be available retail, so I might wait until then for sale. Too many games in the queue as it is. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/coe/tiny-epic-dungeons/description
  2. KS : https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/zombicide-undead-or-alive/ Safest thing is to pledge $1, wait for the Pledge Manager, check shipping, VAT, and other charges, then wait for the base game at half the KS plus shipping price during a holiday sale.
  3. Guns, ninjas, hobbits, dogs, monkeys, pumpkins, and mancatchers. Sure, you *say* you could otherwise do some conversion. But good luck finding a mancatcher *and* a monkey. Stuff's in metal and cast in the USA. Magnets are from China, but they have multiple suppliers.
  4. I backed their original Mythic Battles: Pantheon. Good miniatures. IIRC, Mythic Battles: Pantheon core sets in the KS, and possibly some expansions in the PM. Expansion reprints were difficult because printer required a minimum number, and Monolith wasn't sure how many sets backers would want. Also, let me know how their fulfilment has been going. (Not to be confused with their former partner, Mythic games.) More discussion on Dakka : https://www.dakkadakka.com/dakkaforum/posts/list/792719.page#11049486
  5. A huge 2 for 1 KS! (You get BOTH Humans and Halflings in one project! ) Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter Story "Oh no! It's an armed agrarian uprising!" Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners. Bloody Peasants! A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games. You can choose from humans, halflings or both! The Humans A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam. The Halflings A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks. It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means; Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.
  6. From the makers of "Gun Fighters Ball" https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gunfightroyale/gunfight-royale
  7. I assume that everyone is already aware that Midlam is running a new KS, but... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/classic-cloaked-halfling-adventurers/description Story Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye. They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests. It can only be... The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party! A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures. Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week. Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be. To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year. The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look. So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear. Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
  8. Every year I put together a village using as many of my noncombative miniatures along with my Dwarven forge village a few pieces from my parents ceramic village and my old shops from the fire as she bears campaign It may not be finished yet but its a good start to the holiday!
  9. Well, looks like Hasbro is doing their own version of a kickstarter for a new release of one of the all-time classics. I don't know if their site for the crowdfunding would be considered as a commercial site, but I'm sure it will be easy enough to find. I'm in!
  10. Looks interesting for the terrain, if not the miniatures. Two armies package includes two 20"x20" fortresses for less than $100. There are a couple of things that give me pause, though. First time creator, and claims to be in Chicago but English is clearly not his first language. May not mean anything but makes me wonder. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/crumb-group/eternal-eight "After over three years in the making, we are proud to present you the Eternal Eight - a WORLD'S FIRST 3D mini war game with innovative real 3D RELIEF. The goal of the game is to capture the enemy’s King. The advantages of Eternal Eight are the 3D castles, fortresses and villages with a myriad of traps, labyrinths and secret passages. All of the army bases (castles, villages, fortresses) are easy to assemble and move around. The game can be easily incorporated into your existing game table setup or provide a great addon to some of your existing mini war games."
  11. This is a continuation of a thread started in "More X-Wing Fun", covering stories for a start until some new pilots are trained. I gave out "The Force Awakens" to a few guys for Christmas and Birthdays in the hopes of expanding the player base. The group at the local game store seems to have vanished. So continuing... This is the Rebellion News Network (R.N.N.) Watchman reporting from somewhere in the Distal Reaches. We encountered a rather strange cosmic anomaly that has thrown us off course; no one seems to know our present whereabouts. The emergency transmitter has been broadcasting our location since we lost our course lock-on. It has been only forty-five minutes but we have been informed of a locating beacon that has started transmitting a positional fix to home in on. Evidently this is not a standard type beacon, not matching anything on the Galactic Navigational Charts… We are, finally, approaching an uncharted planetary body… We have been instructed to close all view ports before we land. I am placing a Remote Optical Pad on the port that should pass all but the closest detailed external inspection. I plan to activate a Randomized Signal Receiver just before touchdown, and possibly obtain some external video… So, a Military base of some sort: a Gozanti Cruiser taking off (?), and Y-wing bombers. Looks like about two squadrons of Kihraxz fighters landing. Here are two rows of Z-95s, which I am unable to determine how many are present. Looks like a standard type of base construction seen elsewhere. Hmmm, there is no visible activity of any kind currently, which I can pick out, inside the installation. Okay we are going down and swinging around just past the base. We have an interesting development, looks like I am picking up stray video signals close by from someone doing a visual scan of us. They seem to be interested in our weapons mounts. Sorry guys nothing new or special here, same-o, same-o. Could this be a dual function base? I see three Jumpmaster 5000s, an YT1300 and a HWK290. Also an air patrol of Protectorate Star fighters. Okay feed was terminated. I will complete the report when we liftoff. Watchman reporting, Good Day
  12. Hello all! I am a very novice beginner to miniature painting, and have only been doing it for about a year or so. I feel like my skills are leveling up pretty quickly, but still need some advice. My friend is trying to coax me into pen and paper RPGs like DnD and pathfinder, and we are currently doing a pathfinder session. To add flavor to the games and because I like to feel like I'm participating, I'm working on terrain and buildings. The first building that I'm nearing completion on is Tabletop World's Mansion. Because of the large size of the model (and the hope that I'll be getting more pieces, creating a city that will look like it all came from the same forest/quarry/paint shoppe) I went to various Hardware stores and bought actual high quality building/house paint. I'm a little concerned this was a bad move, since I know model paint is specifically made for small scales. The colors for the mansion were ripped from the Winchester Mystery House photos because I love the design and colors. So the main question I have is regarding sealing. I've heard krylon matte spray can leave a sticky residue, and I want to avoid that. I was wondering what sealing spray I should use since I went with actual house paints. Because the parts where the house fits together are extremely snug, my desire is to paint on a gloss coat for the connecting parts, so when the mansion is put together/pulled apart the gloss coat will protect the paint better from rubbing off. Or will it stick together because of the gloss coat? Looking for advice on that. Finally, the wood flooring I would like to look a little more aged. I'm kind of worried about adding grey or white with dry brushing but will probably end up doing that. The wood color was a brown paint I had mixed up at the hardware store, so I figured I would brush some burnt umber over it and then go with some kind of gray and then white for the aged look. This is almost finished, I'm very much a "good enough" worker and hobbyist, and so long as it looks decent on the table I'll be happy. I could certainly obsess over the tiny details for the next 10 years, but I like my sanity. Looking for some advice on the sealing/aging wood though! Thank you for reading my post. Sorry about the length.
  13. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/yetlblack/corvus-corax-miniatures-sons-of-yetl-black Story Corvus Corax Miniatures is a small hobby project created in 2013. Since then, four projects have successfully funded on Kickstarter and all have been fully delivered on time without any delays. The feedback from the backers have only been positive! The goal of this project is to raise funds for the production a total of four (4) miniatures for the Sons of Yetl Black. The miniatures will be cast in high quality, non-toxic resin. The scale of the miniatures is 35mm (measuring to the eyes in a standing, straight pose, although some characters may be slightly larger because they are supposed to be large characters). Strendu Bodaway Pachoa Niyol (Actual copies of the resin miniatures. Note that the resin miniatures below are not 100% in scale with each other, but resized for editing purposes.)

  15. Found this and thought I'd pass on: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/highnoongame/high-noon-a-wild-west-combat-tactical-board-game/description FYI the game components graphic near the top show what you get if you go "all in" NOT what's in a standard box.
  16. Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84371-2019-rpchallenge-questionsannouncements/ All the information you need should be here. As usual, the new format holds a "hard mode" challenge! March and April 2019 Challenge Your challenge is: 9! Bonus Challenge: The First! March 8th is the birthday of Ralph H. Baer, often called the "father of video games." To tribute these early games - paint a character to resemble an early video game character (Think 16-bit era or sooner) the more obscure, the better! Addendum: It doesn't have to ONLY exist in that era. It doesn't matter if it's the only incarnation of it like Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure or Power Pete, or originated but is on 5183 of the series (looking at you, Final Fantasy.) but the spirit is to that era. Bonus Challenge: The Second! Bringing back the classic for April, the "Fools' Brigade!" Paint a mini in a patently absurd scheme! CAV with a bullseye on it...elf with an "I'm organic" tabbard, etc. The more outlandish the better! Hard Mode Challenge! Ides Of March Famously known as the date when Julies Caesar was assassinated, March 15. Make a small diorama (or large, whichever) of such an assassination about to, or having recently happened. Characters and environment. This will be counted as # of miniatures + 2 base and scenery.) As always, the game is made up and the points don't matter!
  17. https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/harlequin-classic-shadow-elves/x/10803452#/ EOE is proud to presents a Harlequin Miniatures Production - Classic Oldhammer Shadow Elves including Heroes, Assassins, Enchanters, Crossbowpersons, Siege Engines and scary Raptor Riders! Great Designs for the discerning Collector and Roleplayer. These Shadow Elves will bring terror to all that face them in Battle, be they namby-pamby Humans, goody two shoed Elves or the weakling Dwarves. These fantastic Miniatures, originally released in 1990’s, are being remoulded to cast in lead-free pewter by the skillful (ish) hands of John Olsen and his wonderful staff. Please peruse the figures below... With harsh features and a reputation to match Shadow Elves are a particularly nasty race who believe that they are the only true Elves. They do not see themselves as nasty or evil, their view is simply that it is the other races which have strayed from the correct path. A popular Shadow Elf saying which succinctly explains their philosophy is: “Those who allow others to pass will soon be left behind”. Suffice it to say that the Shadow Elves are continually pushing forward. Shadow Elves despise humans and their ways and feel that the other Elven races are far too Human in their outlook, at times ignoring their Elven Heritage. (This is not true, in any sense of the word, but that doesn't stop the Shadow Elf from believing it). It is rumored that they cut the tips off the ears of Elves that they capture, “humanizing” their appearance to match their actions, but this is believed to be apocryphal. While it is true that there are subtle and not-so-subtle color variations in the skin tones of every race, there are none so stark as the difference between the Shadow Elves of the south and those who live in the northern regions. Southern clans have deep-red skin the color of molten lava and those of the North have blue skin and often have dark blue or purple hair. There is no clear reason for this Regional difference but it is believed to date back to the time of “The Time of the Seven Trials” during the First Age. No records exist which details what the Seven Trials were or how they could have changed them in this fashion, but cave drawings and pictographs deep in the Indegahn cave system, as yet undeciphered, may hold the key.
  18. I recently bought the 2 headed Troll "Lardgulp" to use as a boss in an upcoming battle for my play group. The problem is that compared to the reaper black Rock Troll I received he is not so intimidating... However, I've seen on other sites a new reaper black or bones 2 headed Troll for pre order. I was wondering if there were any pictures of it compared to the Rock troll, and when will it be available on the site properly?

  20. I am putting the final touches on a saltmarsh campaign set in the Razor Coast setting and it occurred to me that there were probably a number of people here who had run or played one or the other. Since this is my first time with the 5e system (though I have at least played all the others and it strikes me as very similar to AD&D with some improvements) I would like to see if there are mistakes I can avoid... The group looka like it will be 7 if everyone shows up, three of them in their mid teens and I want to make sure they have fun while getting a taste of adventures that are not all hack and slash. My reason for them to be there together at the adventure start is that they have recently completed their training/ finished their apprenticeship/ or finished with the service and this is the graduating task they have been given basically: comlete the secrets of sinister saltmarsh if you want the right to practice your trade in the name of your guild. I am hoping to avoid the first 2-3 sessions of 'I hate you all' and 'I'm better then you' garbage that seems to happen so often with the classic met in a tavern opening. The planned adventure path will use the saltmarsh modules but I also want to work in The sunless Citidel The temple of Posidon (an old ADnD module that I personally love even though it's a killer from stage 1) 2 or 3 other dungeon crawls from old dragon magazines I also want them to have access to the Razor coast adventures as optional adventures (I've started a table of swap outs that allow me to replace sections of saltmarsh if they take that option. Finally, I have ship minis and I want to use them! So I am planning some naval encounters that they can run into With all of this I am I am planning a slow progression allowing greater numbers in people to make the adventures a little easier but requiring more of them rather than increasing the cr of the encounters in the dungeon. As some of these adventures are killers I'm really not worried about the characters feeling unthreatened but some of the players are new and I don't want to clobber them Tomb of Horrors style (when I played temple of Posidon the first time we went in with 8 8th level characters and cam out with 3...) but I may need to explain the slow progression. Two things I want to implement are: a change to feats and multiclassing; I want to allow it but only if they find someone in game to teach it to them. Race limitations.all the basic races are fine but race discrimination is a chunk of the plot and things will go very bad very quickly if one of the players is an aquatic race... So with that said does anyone have recommendations for: Dungeoncrawlers - I would love to throw in a few classic crawlers with classic monsters. I also have all my dwarven forge goodies I want to use! Ship combat dos and donts particularly around cannon and boarding actions and piracy Pointers for dealing with teens, they're good kids but can be rambunctious and distractable An I trying too much on them? Ist possible for them to be embroiled in multiple plotlines and it could confuse them. So with that, anyone want to lend an ear and make suggestions? Roo

  22. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/blacklistgames/hour-of-need?ref=user_menu Hour of Need is a cooperative game of comic book action inspired by the costumed heroes that many of us grew up with. Using the Modular Deck System (MDS), also featured in Street Masters, Brook City, and Altar Quest, the game features incredibly modular gameplay using several different types of decks. Hero decks, villain decks, and issue decks can all be mixed and matched to create countless combinations of unique play experiences. Miniatures Each hero in Hour of Need is represented by a highly-detailed miniature, as well as each villain and their associated lackeys. Hero Decks Each hero in Hour of Need is defined by their unique deck of cards, representing their crime-fighting abilities. While each hero has their own playstyle, all hero decks share something in common in the form of heroic feats which make certain cards multi-purpose—do you want to play a card for its ability, or keep it in your hand to use its “toughness” heroic feat icon to protect yourself from damage? Managing your hand is crucial in avoiding crises! Villain Decks Villain decks are the primary opposition in Hour of Need. During the villain turn, each player draws a villain card and resolves its icons—these will spawn minions in scheme panels, trigger special villain abilities, or spawn perils & lackeys on the map. Additionally, villain cards feature “Showdown” effects that are resolved whenever a villain is attacked by a hero—if the heroes can first reveal the villain! Issue Decks and Issue Boards Like any good comic book series, Hour of Need tells its stories through issues—issue decks, in this case. Each issue deck is accompanied by an issue board that sets the scene for the conflict. The issue deck details the overall story and special rules for the game. Whether the heroes are attempting to thwart a bank robbery or prevent advanced weaponry from being stolen, the issue deck will provide the villain with their overall goal, which the heroes must prevent in order to win! Issue Guides The issue guide provides all the narrative and rules clarifications for each issue in the game. Players can choose to play a more story-based experience by reading each story point as its cue effects are triggered. Hero Dice Heroes must fight and solve their way through their enemies’ various machinations. Hero dice are used to resolve each fight and solve action, while focus tokens are used to mitigate these rolls. Tokens Tokens are used to track various game elements, such as how much damage a character has suffered, how much justice has been dealt to a problem, as well as where minions and bystanders appear on the board. Additionally, each issue introduces unique tokens to add another level of thematic immersion. Rulebook Check out the beta rulebook HERE!
  23. just wishing to put this out there, but what are the chances of warlord coming back, hopefully with the success of bones reaper can really hammer our full fledged army boxes. i only ask this as warlord was my very FIRST miniatures game and heck it was the first miniatures i ever bought and wish to see it again even if its just bones army sets or something. maybe even a third edition possibly. i mean am i alone in wanting warlord back?
  24. Hi, I'm a sculptor from New Zealand. I am mostly known for my dungeon delvers. Especially of the duck variety.
  25. Second background, in progress. Started with tape to control swelling and rolling. First coat was brushed (1.5" cheap brush from hobby store) with a mix of gesso, water, and Patio Paint Fiesta Yellow (probably a dab of khaki to dull the tone too). After a day or two to dry I used a chunk of construction sponge to cover the paper with a mix of water, pva glue, a drop of dish soap (helps with rings at this consistency, or so I believe), and Ceramcoat Raw Sienna (possibly some Apple Barrel Nutmeg too for redness). Swiped the whole thing for coverage, then blotted, dragged, and blew as it dried a bit to achieve the variation in texture you see. This one is going great, I must say. The first one I did didn't look like the image in my mind until about 7 steps in, and never quite looked right. Question, comments, critiques welcome!
