I'm. I'm not getting core so I guess retail it is.

 

There is the possibility that the core set will be broken up near the end like.it has for the past 4 kickstarters and you can get it that way

 

The troll was also in a emailed update if you would prefer seeing a picture of it outside the core image

On the core image they deleted it, but on the one sent to mail, the troll is stepping on a human soldier. 

Do you think it will be that big? 

 

The unfortunate human soldier was a victim of a sleep-deprived concept artist being funny. One of the various streams announced the final troll will not have a stepped-on dude.

 

The three headed troll with Ed, Ron, and Dave heads is currently a similarly funny piece of sleep-deprived concept art and will NOT be in the kickstarter. Again, various streams have announced he might, MIGHT I SAY, be made into metal.

 

In order to maintain enough detail for 3 heads to look like 3 proper heads, I do believe the 3-headed troll will be rather on the large side.

I'm normally more into Fantasy, but I'm pretty curious about the Chronoscope talk.

An Oldtimer Car is interesting.

I wonder what else will be in there, I might be interested if I could use most of it for a pulp style archeological expedition.

I thought there was some rule about lotteries for Canadians requiring a skill component as well, though perhaps that doesn't apply for lotteries not run in Canada or by a Canadian company.

 

Canada only, and usually took the form of a simple math equation.  It was always perfunctory.  I haven't seen one in forever, most junk food promotions having gone digital, so I don't even know if it's still a thing.  But if you want your free bag of chips it'll be:

 

12-4+5

x 14-6

Exactly, Metal is king, plastic is the price point of the 80's-90's.

For me resin is king. while metal and resin can both do the detail, larger thinner parts cause issues for the molds (someone from reaper explained it at a long post on the paizo forums a few years back) for metal due to it needing higher heat which damages the molds.  also larger things become very heavy and metal is just annoying to convert due to harder to saw/drill through.  

 

after resin, i prefer hard detailed plastic (Games WOrkshop style and apparently the new stuff from GF9 collector series - their larger kits coming in october/november this year will be GW style plastic sprues).  Then bones. then finally metal. 

 

i used to like metal models. then i started converting and doing larger pieces and metal just became too annoying.  that said, most of the stuff i get, doenst come in metal anyways so it stopped becoming an issue :)

Is this like that viral math problem recently, where the grouping is ambiguous just to mess with us?

 

As a recent transplant to Canada, the only one I've seen was closer to "1+1+1 = ?"... ::P:

I'm hoping the pulp encounter is a byakhee chasing a car full of investigators. One driving, one holding a lantern so a third can read from a tome, and the fourth shooting or swinging a weapon at the monster.

reminds me the rpg "Beyond the Supernatural" 

 

:)

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
