Knight of the Dinner Table

Desert of the Dead, fantasy wargaming miniatures!

Recommended Posts

I checked my reward.

 

Got a huge order with all of the Undead and all of the Elven Cavalry including skyship and chariots.

Most look great.

I got a few broken speartips and a lot of flash.

 

I do have two maybe three issues though and emailed TTcombat about that.

Let's see what they say.

 

My issues.

 

Mummy Centaur Archers.

I can build 8 out of 10.

Two of them won't mix, they have mismatching halves ( honestly why someone needs to create more than two versions I have no idea it will only make it more difficult to pick the right one)

 

My main issue the Undead Heavy Cavalry.

I got the wrong weapons/shield mix for the wrong riders.

The battle standard bearer is alright he comes with both arms attached, apart from him I can only make one rider with a shield and spear.

Somehow I got 2 RIGHT drummer arms so I need a left one.

And then I got 6 LEFT spear arms, 2 RIGHT spear arms and One RIGHT arm shield ( leaving me with a bunch of spears and no shields.

Also some riders have arms and others not but the spears already all have arms so useless for most riders.

 

And then something I'm not sure of, it could be a missing part or it could be just the design.

I got the fire elemental ( one in an RPG Monster pack) but it has no head.

Is this how it's supposed to look or am I missing a head?

 

I have emailed them, included the pics, will see what happens.

 

All in all I like the bigger monsters, characters and vehicles.

Not too impressed with the rank and file though.

Some look like 25mm instead of 28mm.

Will probably sell off a bunch on the evilbay.

Congrats!

Do check the contents!

I've seen another backer who said he missed all right arms from a unit.

Thanks for the heads-up.  Still no word on mine (although I last checked a few days ago), but hopefully it's coming in short order.

I've been working on it, its going to take a few days to go through it all :lol: I thought I was missing two lower jaws for my hydra, but it turned out that two of the heads have closed mouths :) so far all I've checked is complete

I have received an answer.

They are going to send me the parts I miss.

 

Also, the Fire Elemental is complete and is supposed to look like this.

I was a bit wondering where his head was, but it's fire...

I checked mine, make sure you check the horse's heads. Some heads have reins attached, some don't, in that case the reins are on the body. Some of the reins have a left hand a some have a right hand and some have no hand. The leader is the only one with a shield, all the others use one hand to hold the reins and have a spear in their other hand. There are two or three horses without a hand holding the reins, those are for the commander, banner bearer and musician (off the top of mt head). Took me a bit of puzzling but my group is complete, and then I put them in separate baggies so I don't have to work it all out again.

 

I  got the ultimate pledge, and I'm very impressed. The castings have a lot of flash, but also a lot of detail and character. Most troops have 5 poses + 3 command. I have a few broken spear tips, and possibly 3 missing velocigators from my elven chariots (those are supposed to have 2 each I think), no other issues and about 20 extra models including a set of adventurers that wasn't included in the pledge :D

I will check that.

Still need a left drummer arm at the least then.

I'm sure they'll set you up :) hopefully that's the only thing missing

 

So far that and the Centaur Archers ( 2 mismatching bodies) they did reply, so I have good hope.

Got my box today.  Was never notified about shipping, but when I looked at Backerkit just now it DOES show "shipped".  Based on comments above I will have to dump everything out and check pieces.  Thought they made in a mistake in that there are two Sorceress on Terragons in the box, but turns out I actually ordered two.  Huh.  Don't know why I did that!  Anyone need one (drop me a PM)?  :rolleyes:

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!
