Some people do care to watch, but due to responsibilities they may not be able to take the time to do so. Thank you very much for the new thread, it's very helpful!


Yes forgive me, I should have worded that differently. >.<
I will try my best to do notes for the show as best I can, as it is a lot of multi-tasking keeping up with chat, talking/listening, notes and so forth. I might even just save it for Friday morning, and go watch the episode again on the V.O.D's Or just link the V.O.D with a summary of what happened.

I'm down to 'huhn, do I REALLY want that' on my list; mostly for niche stuff like the Daimyo expansion and Chronoscope, where there's stuff I am not very interested in mixed in with stuff I do want/have a use for.

I did get a pair of Bigby's Expressive Single Digit though, because that appeals to my twisted sense of humour. >.>

Daimyo, I would have got if not for the dino-people. I don't mind the existing ones, just not those. I figured, eh I wanna support Reaper in retail sales, so that expansion will be one I'll look for. That & the Chronoscope one as well. There is a bunch of things in that one I'll look for in retail as well, like the big minis. Love the Cthulhu like creature, along with the other mini on the same page.

Here Pezler, I have lowered the resolution to an acceptable level.

I have  a love hate relationship with chronoscope expansions.
They lack of focus always makes me not get them. I feel they would work better if it was broken down into encounters. 

Lets go through the 3 parts of the Chronoscope expansion and my thoughts on it.

Part 1: Victorian Steampunk and Pulp: 

  • I absolutely love the figures. I really  enjoy the variety of non combat pose and the detailed dresses. Santa doesn't really fit, but its Santa.


Part 2: Post apocalypse and Lovecraft:

  • First off, modern zombies. A good addition to the Reaper catalogue. But I am not interested in them, I would have preferred if they were victorian or more of a village folk (for modern settings it was part of a village festival or a folk group).
  • Like the civilians, not really interested in the military ones. Still have no real use for them and the sculpts don't jump out to me (apart from the one that reminds me of Shaggy and the farmer)
  • Super mutants, not really my jam. That one pose drawing his pistole is nice. 
  • Trailer, I don't do modern. Still there are a couple of fun ways this can be used. A good addition to the reaper catalogue.
  • Lovecraft monsters: the devil one is nice. I really like it. The tentacles have a nice scenic base that works for both modern and victorian. But tentacle blob is not really my cup of tea.

Part 3: Robots

  • Don't like the half skeletons and half blocks design. But that is a personal preference.
  • Large robots: prefer the more fluid design, but still not my cup of tea.

... are those peanut butter cups on Buglips's back?

 

 

While I now can't unsee that, I think the intent is gold coins with ridged edges.  ::):

Treasure is treasure.  Delicious, delicious treasure.

The original idea was to try and make a compromise between "maybe they are coins" and "but maybe they are paint lids".  If it was necessary to choose one or the other, I said go with coins because while paint pots would be funnier it would be best to make it a useful piece for people who are not in on the joke.  So they are theoretically coins, theoretically paint pot lids, and theoretically peanut butter cups. Good loot either way, tbh.

Could also sand down the ridges and make them cheese wheels.

      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!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
