War in Christmas Village Sequels

Recommended Posts

Hey Serpine. What do you think of the minis?

I remember that first kickstarter.

I was tempted but the timing was bad so I didn't back.

 

Hmm. That Christmas treant and those elves are great and Mrs.Clause with her crossbow is very nice.

 

And I see they're offering a level that includes minis from their first kickstarter...

 

Yep. I'm in. Unless Serpine has bad things to say.

Hey Serpine. What do you think of the minis?

 

I am very pleased overall with what I got from the first project. The material feels solid and the detail on the figures is reasonably good (they are definitely less sharp then figures from say Zombicide, but close enough that once painted they should fit in fine with other games). The packaging for the core set of 6 figures was great, with a solid colorful box (protected with plastic guards for shipping) and internal molded tray. I had also added on an extra 6 snowmen and a second zombie reindeer. The extra snowmen were individually packaged in little boxes and fine. As to the reindeer, while the one in the box set had been perfect, the second one didn't fair as well: It was bubble wrapped and bent askew on the stand and with antlers sort of squished together. I think some other backers mentioned in the project comments a similar packaging issue on that figure. That being said, I am fairly confident I can fix the problem with some hot water based bending, so it is a small flaw in an otherwise fine delivery.

Serpine, thank you for the review. Once we get our shipment, as it appears to be in air freight limbo, we'll send you some replacements.

 

Also, what's your opinion on the d6 direction/scatter die in the box?

I don't need a replacement. I've dealt with *way* worse levels of plastic bendage before. :)

 

As far as the die, I never turn away something to throw in my dice bag but overall I don't anticipate ever using it. I mean, it is just a generic white scatter die without any holiday elements, of which I already have plenty I don't use already (from various prior editions of 40k). If the die indicated winter weather, had three sides each of "naughty/nice", had random holiday monsters on each side, pictured different number of presents or zombie carolers, or even just had numbers 1-5 with a wreath for the 6, then it might have been more interesting (at least as a conversation piece).

The kickstarter has completed its  funding and reached about a half dozen stretch goals during its run.

 

My money had already been collected do now the wait for fulfilment begins.

 

Looking forward to receiving these as I don't have anything quite like them.

Minis have all arrived at Amazon for shipping out to backers according to the last update.

Fulfillment should begin soon.

Shipping through Amazon appears to be a complicated process that the projects creator is still trying to work through. Amazon wants each UPC to be sent to different Amazon fulfilment centres.

I’m starting to get concerned that this is getting more complicated than it should need to.

 

Most US orders have been sent out and product is now available to order at retail through Amazon.

 

As a Canadian backer I’m still waiting for international orders to be sent out.

As per Canada posts promise, these arrived at my home today.

 

Minis look good. I like the boxes. Really I’m just glad I finally have them.

Only 8 months late which isn’t a huge delay for kickstarter, but it was all the uncertainty over the shipping method and following confusion that I admit had me on edge about receiving these.

 

I know there’s a follow up kickstarter coming up, but as I got these mostly for their novelty factor, I don’t know that I want to go down this particular rabbit hole any further.

 

Nice minis though for anyone wanting to increase their Christmas or holiday themed collection.

      Risks and challenges
      TAG, are a recognized miniature manufacturer of long standing, In the past 18 years once we commit to a Project, we always complete.
      As such we don't envisage any massive issue with this small ( 6 packs) Kickstarter.
      We have the Original models moulded, master-cast, and in pre-production, ready to move to full production, if and when, full Funding takes place.
      We have our own professional Mail Order facilities, and have completed on over a dozen Kickstarters, for TAG, and for many other small scale mini retailers here in the UK.
      As always, I'm sure there are a few ways we could cluck this up, but we promise that we'll work really hard, to make this a success, and if we don't you can give us a 'basting' on social media.

      The Grand Duchy of Reme awaits!
      Starting in 2002 Necromancer Games began populating its Lost Lands campaign setting one adventure at a time. The Grand Duchy of Reme is the region home to classic adventures released by Necromancer Games for D20/3.x and Frog God Games for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry and Fifth Edition. 
      More than 10 adventures have brought life to the Grand Duchy of Reme. The Lost Lands Campaign Sourcebook funded in January is expected to be over 700 pages and all of them are full of information. By necessity each region was described broadly, but there are still a wealth of history, politics and other details to be explored, experience and expanded in the Grand Duchy of Reme. 
      The Grand Duchy of Reme is a system neutral hardcover volume designed to be useful for campaigns independent of system preference. Specific details that affect the characters in the Lost Lands there are System Encounter Books. These companion volumes are softcover (or PDF), that contain reference stats for use with the Region book along with detailed encounter tables for the region.
      Additionally, 3 classic adventures previously unavailable for Pathfinder, Swords & Wizardry, and Fifth Edition are back. These are offered as either softcover add-ons in backerkit or as free stretch goals in PDF (see reward sidebar).
      Mock-up of Grand Duchy of Reme. Final release will differ slightly The city of Reme itself is ancient, with world-spanning trade — the eternal citadel of the Loreclans, where the ashes of legendary barbarian kings reside. This land lies near the slow collapse of the nearby Empire of Foere, and the rise of Bard’s Gate to the East. The Rhemish watch these events with cold eyes rather than concern, for they live in vast regions that devour invaders. Their land is eternal; their people can be forced back to the plains, but in the plains they can abide for as long as need be. They are — as a people — the ultimate hunters. The fall of Foere is like the fall of an antelope upon the plains; the rise of Bard’s Gate is little more than the stepping-up of jackals before the body. The Grand Duchy of Reme simply waits and watches — for Reme is the dwelling-place of the world’s wolves.
      Reme is a unique fantasy civilization whose structure is determined by the one overriding fact of its geography — the country is a vast, grassland plain. The realm is dominated by the culture of the ancient Loreclans: the urbanized and settled ones, and the nomadic clans of the interior. The Loreclans owe a certain fealty to the Dukes of Reme, who are the final arbiters of the ancient law of the plains, but between the Loreclans and the Dukes there are also the mysterious Pashtars: arbiters, judges, and mediators who roam the plains where their service takes them.
      The city of Reme, of course, is one of the wonders of the world of the Lost Lands, home of powerful spell-casters and perhaps the greatest mercantile and war fleets of the Crescent Sea. It is also, however, steeped in the culture of the vast plains of the interior. It is a place where assumptions are dangerous, for it is no standard fantasy environment — it is a culture that will be entirely new and foreign to your players, a place to truly explore as well as adventure.
