Knight of the Dinner Table

Desert of the Dead, fantasy wargaming miniatures!

Recommended Posts

I filled out my Backerkit. Will try to add more before it closes in December. I want the Lynx girls, Maybe the Heavy Cavalry, Maybe the Bath on Triceratops and Maybe the Desert titan (or big desert titan).

Looks like it's a dead battalion for me, with a few added characters, as if I just get what I want I'm at 135GBP, if I get the Dead Battalion plus extras I'm at 141GBP, so for the 6GBP I may as well get an extra 20 mummies, chariot, anubti and centaurs!

BackerKit says 12cm tall, which sounds plausible given the price, but also sounds like a rather unimpressive pyramid at 28mm scale. I mean, a pyramid that's just over four humans high is... well, an impressive sand pixie structure, I guess?

That was a concern of mine, too. Maybe it's just buried under tons of sand?

I'm currently sitting at $282.. thats not sustainable for me.. but I'm waiting on a lot of renders.. i also added both of the 220mm figures, even though I think I'm really only going to get the titan in that size..

You could roll with that interpretation, though I'd argue the steps are way too small for that. At 20 on the 12cm model, assuming a 28mm scale, these are closer to modern stair steps than huge stepped pyramid steps.

 

One thing that was a thing during some Egyptian dynasties were smaller stepped cult pyramids (not actually used to bury anyone important), which this piece would would work for.

 

But as a truly impressive pyramid, I'd say the piece just won't work at 28mm.

Well, as we all know, the pyramids were power plants gifted by our ancient alien astronaut visitors that served as Tesla Towers and helped the flow of Vril across the empire. This Pyramid/Vril battery is small, because it is on the outskirts of the empire and power needs are modest. We just need some  Dendera light bulbs to complete the scene. Though this one could also be in disrepair as the working one would have been encased in polished limestone and had a smooth reflective surface and been capped in gold. 

 

Perhaps the shifty Halflings stole the gold, and dismantled the limestone to be used in other construction, not realizing what the true purpose of the pyramid was. Maybe the undead, once an ancient advanced power, took the secrets of the pyramids with them in their eternal sleepless slumber. Or, maybe the elves, knowing that mankind could not be trusted with such power, now wage an eternal war to rid the world of all traces of this dangerous technology.

Not gonna lie, I'm kind of wishing I hadn't had to back out, but such is life.  Stupid surprise bills jumping out at you even when you have budgets and funds for various things...

I actually felt bad about backing. I mean, I had already told my wife I was. Spent less then I had quoted. But.... We had a few surprise expenses come up, as well as expenses that we knew were coming... but... still felt bad.

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      Saw this mentioned in one of my feeds this morning. Looks quite interesting and is already very funded, with a load of stretch goals unlocked

      Altered Carbon: The Role Playing Game
       
      Official tabletop RPG based on the hit neo-noir cyberpunk Netflix series and award-winning novel of the same name.
       

       
      Working alongside Skydance Television and the incredible team behind the hit Netflix TV series, we’re excited to immerse you in the neon-drenched cyberpunk sandbox of Altered Carbon with our official tabletop RPG.
       

       
      In this transhumanist vision of the future, the human mind is nothing more than digital code – Digital Human Freight – saved and stored in a Cortical Stack, advanced technology that allows you to “re-sleeve” your entire consciousness into a new body. You can wear any body you can afford, transmit your mind across the cosmos in an instant, and, if you’ve got the credits and political cachet, you can re-sleeve time and again for centuries, accumulating enough wealth and power over the millennia to become the societal equivalent of an immortal god.
       
      Whereas character death is a natural occurrence and ever-present threat in tabletop RPGs, Altered Carbon: The Role Playing Game offers a unique angle on the concept. As opposed to creating a brand new character, players will have the opportunity to transfer their character’s consciousness, memories, and experiences into new Sleeves post-death… but at a cost.
       
      Mind you, immortality is not invincibility. Losing a Sleeve is a life-altering setback, and “Real Death” awaits anyone whose Stack is destroyed. That being said, Sleeves introduce their own refreshing challenges to players and storytellers alike. Augmentations can instantly upgrade your athleticism, but a world-class surgeon in an unadjusted Sleeve can botch a basic procedure. The possibilities for characters and campaigns may change from one Sleeve to the next… making long-term gameplay more versatile, while empowering the story to steer character advancement at its own pace.
       
       
       
       
      Just about a day left on this. I just learned of it today, and I've been suckered in for a book and a GM screen. Big fan of the series, intrigued by the actual game, so.
