What I really want is to have a more detailed shot of the Townfolk. Is it just me or can the ladies on the second row can be painted us nuns? I already brought the set, because civilians are fun to paint. Sadly it doesn't have many tradesmen, thought that is covered by the Brinewind Expansion. I wonder if I am the only person excited about the civilians. I literally brought the Player Characters for the civilians inside the set.

 

I am still considering both Henchmen sets but the Shadow Dragon vs Troll Bridge vs Shadows of Ravenhome are making this seem unlikely (or another expansion).

I feel like a lame fangirl, but we just hadn't found time to sit down together and sort out what we wanted.

 

This. :ik_oops:

 

I keep poking MrBoot that we need to do it (because otherwise I'd just pledge for all the things that I want, which would be, um...expensive :lol:). I did lock in a core set ages ago to solidify shipping order, but other than that we need to confer to make sure that the other things we get are useful to him as well as me, since I'm more about the painting and he's more about the gaming. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I added the villagers in Bones 4 along with the ones that came in the Core set. I've got quite a few townsfolk minis now, and there's some other KS out there that have some with more character. I'm on the fence about this set. I'm not sure I need 50+ villagers...

How else are you going to prevent your players from flinging fireballs when the bad guys ambush the town square?

 

In all honesty, I ragged on the Townsfolk add-on pretty hard during the KS campaign.  I do still think too many of them are static... but I might end up throwing them on last-minute anyway.  We'll see.

But that is a perfect size for a hamlet or small town! How unrealistic are you games if the city doesn't have more than 50 civilians?

Yeah, they are pretty static. But they do work as people speaking to each other. Plus the more expensive clothing and cloaks can work for mages and wizard, so you can now make a whole college/university.

The static poses aren't entirely a problem for generic NPCs. Dynamic poses draws more attention, which makes them feel more "important" than some random people. That said, the only thing I really like about them is that there's children and/or small villagers in the group. I'll mull it over. I've cut the Dungeon Dwellers expansion from my planned purchase so...
