It's not time yet to have a new thread open but as we are closing our KS-2, we are slowly preparing ourselves for the reveals of our KS-3. Armies for both fantasy and sci-fi this time, cofunded,

Well if my camera would have held out for a few more minutes on the first video I would have described the amount of armour on the models (it's about three quarters cover compared to the 40% to two thirds it looked like in the concept art). I like the fact that their armour looks scavenged, borrowed and recycled. It makes them look more barbaric (although apparently they've really got something against upper arm protection).

 

They are big girls standing head and shoulders above the previous three Shieldmaiden heroines that Patrick Keith sculpted. I haven't checked the other resin heroines for size yet. I've built 3 and dry fitted them on bases (to see how they'd rank up). Basically individually they'll fit on 20mm bases but if you want them to rank up it's going to be a real squeeze and you'll have to be careful how you position the arms (probably all up in the air). If you put the on 25mm bases they'll probably rank up quite easily (still need to be careful with a few weapon tips and cloaks 'though). It wouldn't make a very interesting video with me holding things in front of the camera with my hands getting in the way of whatever I'm holding while I babble about bases sizes. I could try lying them down with their feet positioned on the bases to show spacing. The hollow recess in the Freebooter bases makes it easier to balance a figure lying down on the base. I did wonder if the hollow bases (being almost ankle deep on them) is intended to conceal the height a little - especially if you fill it with the remnants of my old tub of Citadel Snow Flock.

According to my text from DHL, my kit was supposed to arrive on the 20th with signature confirmation.  Similar story to some others...nothing came, and when I checked the detailed tracker, it was still in Greece.  But also labeled on schedule, so who knows.

      I backed his last project (dice towers), and found them well worth what ended up being a long wait to get them. It seemed only right to share, 'cause he makes REALLY PRETTY THINGS. Go look.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
