On the truck today. Gotta clear the table for a 1.5 session!

 

Kinda bummed there are no new box inserts for the upgrade packs.

Got my game! I'm a little surprised that FedEx made the delivery estimate but they did make it. I've only managed to organize the gear cards in the tray so far. My laptop conked out last night. Just would not boot up. Lost a fair bit of the day getting that straightened out. Had to completely restore the boot drive from an old backup. So many bookmarks lost. *cry*

 

Good news is, the game came in looking beautiful. No dents or scratches. Just pound after pound of darkness and torment, ready to be assembled! 〴◣_◢〵

Hmm? I know mine hasn't arrived yet but I could have sworn the 1.5 upgrade was supposed to include the new box insert.

I remember Poots saying during the campaign that the inserts would make shipping way more expensive as they would be very difficult to ship outside of the core game box.. He never committed to anything though. It's ben more than a little tricky to get him to comment on it. Version 1 owners might end up having to look for third party inserts.

I'm actually pretty upset about it, as these things go (I don't get too upset over luxury stuff). Hopefully there is an option to get one for the cost of shipping for each upgrade pack, not sure how many want it. If there is too big or too small demand, it might not happen.

Either way, I've got most of the core box gear cards sleeved now....

Are you using the KD sleeves for all the cards or another brand?

 

I haven't bought sleeves yet, but should.

I thought he said he was going to make the new insert available for the expansion folks in a later wave.  the new tray didnt ship with Core its coming in a later wave, because it wouldn't have been done in time for shipping.  based on everything I've read in the Lantern's light FB group

Yeah, I thought the upgraded insert was coming later.  Like with the Gambler's box.  And people would have the option to not receive it because it will add significantly to shipping costs.

I'm using the KDM sleeves. They nice. I think I need more. This is not fast, but at least I only have to do it once. I've not been a fan of sleeves, but I do like how it's easier to look through a deck now.

 

Dark Mediator confirmed the new trays will be made available at some point for the cost of shipping to backers interested.

 

Sleeved up and ready to play! Looking forward to it, I should paint up some survivors and the monsters...I just don't want to hack such lovely models and I'm way out of practice.

Also, there is a resource for upgrading from 1.0 to 1.5, but it's on the KD site, which would fall under the commerce rules of this forum. And it's not linked from their site, it's only shareable as a naked link. So I can't provide the link here. Yay.

 

Try appending wp/upgrade-to-1-5-edition/ to the URL of Death.

So many sprues. Such tiny parts. *twitch twitch*

 

Other than clippers and superglue, what other tools should one have to put together the miniatures?

I wouldn't use superglue for these. It'll work, but thin plastic cement will give a much stronger hold. For assembly, the only other tool you might need is a hobby knife to trim a connection here or there. Vibrant Lantern has a nice write up on assembly tools here. I use a different version of everything they recommend with no issues. Tamiya Extra Thin Cement is probably the most popular.

Thanks. I will have to read up on the article. Since I'm hitting the store, I can pick up a few items that I am missing.

I'd use plastic cement rather than superglue, it 'melts' the plastic together and gives you a stronger bond, apply to a tile similar the use a toothpick to transfer to the model if you don't get one with a brush applicator

 

I'd also have a decent hobby knife

 

Edit: and I've been ninja-ed while distracted by the tv

      Story
      The world of Alberon, as ancient and unknowable as its timeless depths are, has few certainties for those that live in it, but ruin and corruption awaits all but a blessed few.  Halflings are, of course, no exception...
      The Western Wastelands beyond Midlam are a harsh unforgiving environment, that breeds a fierceness through necessity for survival alone.  It is thought that the first halflings to enter the Wastelands, did so unwillingly, captured by Hobgoblin Raiders some several hundred years ago.  
      It is reported that the Hogoblins thought that their small size would make them useful servants for all manner of tasks, but when the monstrous and unstoppable nature of their appetites became apparent, the halflings were stranded in the middle of the wasteland and left them to die.  
      That they didn't is some testament to the hidden reserves and ingenuity of these small folk, but they have not survived unscathed.  Their souls, often forsaken to unknowable gods, have changed as much as their bodies and minds.
      As a counterpoint to the Wasteland halflings, those that inhabit the town have found unusual niches, whether that be as criminal masterminds, pirates, anarchists, grave robbers and the somewhat cliched, but ever problematical, burglars.
      An Excerpt from 'The Robbit' by The Wizard R.R.R. Gudgrief
      Welcome to Halflings Gone Bad - Volume One!
      A collection of sixteen 28mm scale halflings from the wrong side of the elven forest tracks, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Welcome to our second Kickstarter to cover some of the more nefarious occupations and depths that halflings have stooped to.
      The worrying nature of the appearance of wasteland halflings, something seen as a threat to all halfling civilisation, combined with the new depths of depravity of halflings in Midlam has called for a new town council to be convened from amongst the artisans and workers of Halftown.

      About
      Welcome to my Kickstarter!
      My name is Mark Norton, and I am working full-time as a sculptor going by the name Frozen Ninja 3D. I am designing and sculpting my own line of highly detailed figures with the hopes of bringing people together for fun hobby times.  Please visit the bottom of this page for examples of my work, and to see the quality I am trying to achieve.
      This is the fourth Kickstarter project that I have run, and the third project that features models entirely designed and sculpted by me. 
      What is being offered in this project?
      The goal of this project is to release an entire line of high quality plinths and display stands.  These plinths make any figure or bust stand out among the rest, and will make an exciting addition to any collection.   In addition, these plinths will help bring your competition entries to that next level.
      FIRST - MEDIUM SIZE PLINTHS - $12 each, or cheaper if you get a "Bundle" Pledge.
      To start the project, I am offering Medium size Plinths.  The top of the Medium plinth is approximately 35mm across, which is ideal for most miniatures, and busts look awesome on them as well.  These plinths are about 44mm Tall, with base sizes ranging from 42mm to 49mm.   Each plinth will be supplied unpainted.
      In addition to Medium Size Plinths, I have Large Size Plinths planned as stretch goals, as well as some other fun sizes.  
      I have a lot of great models planned for this project!  Here is the starting lineup (scroll down further to see the stretch goals that are planned...)
      Add-On List
      Here is a list of all of the plinths that are currently available in this Kickstarter project.  I will continue to update this list as stretch goals are reached.
      Shipping will be charged separately, please refer to the shipping chart below for rates.
      Stretch Goals
      These are the plinths that will be available once we hit certain funding levels.
      The First Stretch Goal is titled "Chains".  The Medium Plinth will be unlocked if we can reach $1,800 in funding.  It will be available as an Add-On for $12.

      Story
      Hello everyone!
      This collection of models is all aquatic themed. There are minis, monsters, and scatter terrain. There are 12 models in the cores set, and 18 stretch goals planned. That is up to 30 models with a buy-all price of $6. Times are tough right now, so I wanted to make something affordable that is still just as awesome.
       MODEL OPTIONS 
      All models come with a no base, simple base, and decorative base option. A $10 pledge gets you all 3 versions in addition to the successfully tested resin pre-supported version.
         THE CORE SET 
                              THE STRETCH GOALS
      Every $500 is a new mini, monster, or piece of scatter terrain. All mounts will have a saddle and no saddle version. More stretch goals will be added to match the funding level. So feel free to leave comments about what else you'd like to see!
