Time of Legends: Joan of Arc

Recommended Posts

It says the retail version was stripped down and doesn't have the sculpts for terrain. My guess is the retail tiles are just the same tiles from the kickstarter but with terrain, trees, buildings, etc, added as art. So the backers should be able to still use the scenarios for retail, they just have to put the cool 3d sculpted terrain they have on the tiles as indicated. This is my guess, MG hasn't said anything about the tiles yet. It doesn't bother me at all if this is the case. Now if they had added special units to the new core retail box, units that the KS backers aren't getting, I'd be pretty upset about that.

One of those dragons is mine!

Oh yes...

Reminds me a lot of what’s going on with Reaper and Bones 4.

I got my shipping label notice, so that's something.

Did you order the whole game or just an expansion like the dragon?

I was an all in and I got my notice last night. I believe I saw someone in the comments (or maybe on Discord) say they had only ordered a couple of Dragons, and had gotten their notice.

Oh joys!

Received the following in an email today!

 

Greetings,

We thought you'd like to know that we've processed your items, the order is shipping from China and may go through ocean transport which does add to delivery time, during which time you may not see any activity on the tracking link but rest assured that your game is on its way.

If you live in a shipping friendly region (US, EU, CA, AUS) customs and duties is covered by Mythic Games.

For other regions, duties and taxes are applicable and based on the sum of pledge amount + shipping + insurance (CIF).

Your order was shipped via Canada Post Expedited Parcel.

The following item was included in this shipment:

1 x Joan of Arc - Legendary Dragon

Latest update says Canadian orders are on a cargo ship expect to leave port for Vancouver this weekend.

The journey should take just over 2 weeks to get here.

 

The problem is that the dock workers here in Vancouver are facing a lockout over labour negotiations. Lockout’s scheduled to start tomorrow.

 

Blech.

Mine arrived on Friday too.  Only opened the dragon because I'm not positive that I'm going to keep the game.  :-)

Received my dragon today.

It’s a very nice dragon.

It’s a very big dragon.

Technically it might be a wyvern.

 

Anyway, I thought I’d do some comparison pics between it and a recent big dragon from Bones 4.

In the “getting to know each other” thread there was a recent question about whether you liked to paint in a realistic or a cartoony style. 

While neither of these are painted, I think the question could also apply to the sculpting styles of these two dragons as one is clearly more realistic and the other cartoony in comparison.

 

The Joan of Arc dragon is preassembled except for the wings, which at first glance don’t seem to be fitting in properly.

The preassembly of the rest of the dragon is pretty well done, but a fair bit of work will still be needed to be done to hide the joins as they cut across scales.

 

Because of the prep work needed, I think I’ll be putting this one aside for a bit.

That’s pretty ambitious.

Especially considering how much work it would be to match the scales on the new legs with the rest of the body.

Good luck though.

      This is an interesting looking project. It's apparently a second edition of a well reviewed game on BGG (8.1 rating). The first edition raised $83k with 909 backers, this one has $446k and 3848 backers with 4 days to go, which seems like a good sign. It's called a semi-cooperative game for 1-5 players, though there is a pvp mode listed under unlocked stretch goals.
       
      The game has three phases, a sea voyage phase that looks like a resource management mini game, a exploration phase that looks to play similar to D&D board games like Wrath of Ashardalon and Castle Ravenloft, and a port phase for upgrading and getting missions.
       
      There aren't a lot of ks exclusives, but the war dog looks great:

      And some add ons, a set of interesting sea miniatures to replace game tokens:

      Can't say I've ever seen a sperm whale mini before, though he's probably minnow sized next to most tabletop minis.
      And the dice tower looks good, with an awesome demo video:

      Looks like Scale75 is about to drop a new paint line on Kickstarter.  Not too much to know right now all they have is a teaser video on their FB saying a new "smooth acrylic" is coming soon to KS. 
       
      I'm not going to post the link because I'm not sure about linking to FB.  I will keep an eye on this and post more once they do. 
       
      I really don't need more paint but if this is decently priced then I may not be able to pass it up.

      Tre manor is at it again...   
      Another well-designed warband.    
       
      Unfortunately, one of the minis is a bit... not-PG. So no pictures.
