Empire of the Dead Kickstarter beginning this week

Recommended Posts

The well has run dry. Buying up P65 killed my stash of KS funds for a while. Too bad because the fiancee is a big Holmes fan.

@Cash They got a fun free intro scenario with rules on their website that's one side Holmes\Watson and the other Jack the Ripper. It's worth playing even if you're not getting the game as it's pretty fun.

Man...if you just got her into gaming I will owe you in such a huge way. I've been trying to figure out a good intro for her, since she doesn't dig most of the stuff I have.

It's a really fun demo game that gets even better the more terrain and such that you have. I suggest, if she likes the first play through, to use some cardboard rectangles to represent buildings and go all crazy with making alleys and such.

Looks interesting. Would look even more interesting though if I could figure out what exactly is going to "unlock" the "locked" miniatures.

Those are being revealed one each day, so to answer your question... time, I guess

From the copmments section

 

'The Unlocks (shown in black with a paddlock on them) are additional choices. The orange circle displays the points cost of the miniature within Requiem. We will unlock a model every day, now we have reached our goal. Think of these as a bonus to choose from.

We will also have a selection of Optional Extras (which can be purchased at a discount by increasing your pledge and all ship post free to UK/EU, USA and Canada) such as the Wagons etc., these we will unlock and add to as we progress. Some of these are works in progress, we will post WIP pics and some videos of Andy and I modelling and sculpting the new carriages and miniatures.

The Stretch Goals are separate from the choices, you will automatically receive all the Stretch Goals if you have Pledged at Requiem 18 and above. They will all be Limited Edition Kickstarter only Miniatures, I will post the first one up as soon as I can.

Took her out for lunch today and during a lull I pitched the idea. All she needed was Holmes and bobbies vs iconic enemies and she's willing to give it a shot. You have no idea how huge this is, she's not a gamer at all (beyond Words with Friends, etc).

That creepy intro video got me.

 

I've been watching 'Ripper Street' on the BBC and it really catches the atmosphere of the time (the late 1880s). If you haven't see it, I thoroughly recommend.

She's got it on the DVR. Although our favorite Holmes is the new BBC Sherlock with Cumberbatch, he's so perfect for the role and the interplay with Freeman's Watson is phenomenal.

Agree about Sherlock. So much better than that Robert Downey Jr abomination.

 

Ripper Street is more like Hill Street Blues or TJ Hooker set in 1880s Whitechapel. We're about halfway through the 12 episode series. It shows here (UK), on the BBC on a Sunday evening.

      Andowyn Thrushmoor!
      It's been awhile since I've painted a plain ol' character miniature. I spent the better part of today working on her and I’m overall pleased with how she came out. I really want to double my skill level by the time Bones V is delivered and I’m proud of my progress! Slowly but surely figuring out how to do faces, this one looks pretty okay, though her right eye is funky.
       
      Since this is my first form post, the picture is her next to my first miniature! It's about four years old and I keep it around the rest of my collection in a place of honor

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      Gloomhaven is cooperative game of card-driven combat set in a persistent fantasy campaign which will change and grow as you play the game.
      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
