Hmm Denizens, lighthouse, newts. Would be FAR over my budget need to get a better picture of that.

Well, at least having to endure the meme resulted in something that lots of people want.  Doesn't change how annoying it was, though.  I'd have preferred something else to the lighthouse.  Maybe a smaller ship, maybe an airship, a new Nethyrmaul in the original unreduced size, etc.

 

 

I would've liked the car/ Model A or whatever more than the lighthouse. But I like it a LOT.

paging @Pezler the Polychromatic - check out the last update

 

Is that @TaleSpinner's sculpt? I recall him showing off a flumph here on the board. The ends of the tentacles are unique.

 

 

Hmmmm, I'm not really sure on either expansion. Hakir, really doesn't interest me, even thou I'm a fan of Egyptian settings. I do like the characters at the bottom, but they aren't worth $50 just by themselves. When & if they come to retail, I'll definitely get em thou. DD, I really wanted to like this one, but overall, it ranks about a 6 out of 10 for me, & that is mostly for the big creatures. Love the crawfish, definitely the slug. Wyerns are awesome sculpts, but I have enough wyverns, that I really don't need anymore. The big creatures are fantastic, but the smaller ones are kinda eh, more of the same (more trolls? After the last KS, do we really need more? Orcs? Really? These are already in a add-on.  I am glad to see the Norkers get some love, as they are a fantastic sculpt (reminds me I need to pick up the remaining pieces that were out of stock, last RC, this RC).

 

Hopefully thou the reveals will help the overall feel for the KS.

I love everything in Hakir. I'd buy multiples, but I have had bad luck trying to sell minis in the past. Maybe they'll split the scorpions and mummies off. You can never have too many scorpions or mummies in an Egyptian game. I like Dungeons quite a bit too. I'm not wild about orcs, but that's the only thing I don't like in the set.

I just realized we still haven't seen the Goblin that was part of the preview promos they were sending out with the adventurers.  Figured he'd be in Denizens!

He'll probably be a sales incentive to try out the new game. Maybe the Encounters we didn't unlock will make a showing as part of a kickstarter for the RPG game.

Yes, some excitement seems to be building. I am a bit surprised the internet hasn't exploded now that we have a flumph, though. 

 

I'm very pleased with the Hakir expansions.  Not sure about the scarab guys, can't see any of the detail.  Wish Bastet looked more like a goddess and less like a barbie doll.  Love the various walls and terrain pieces. Hope we can get more walls as add-ons.

I have enough mummies, though I don't mind a few more.  I'd support a push for more scorpions, especially the little ones.

Dungeon denizens I like the wyverns and that's it

 

 

 

Julie's wyverns are, of course, amazing.

I really like the desert-themed heroes, but the rest of Hakir isn't for me. I can see them being very appreciated by others though.

 

When it comes to the dungeon dwellers, I'm not sure yet. The wyverns are amazing. I already liked the slug. I can totally use a demilich or those trolls. But I absolutely don't need more orcs... I'm still on the fence.

Taweret, Wadjet, Bast, Anubis, Horus, Ammut and Sobek... the only way that could have gotten better, really, was adding Bes/Bisu (dwarf protector of households, god of dancing, music, sexual pleasure, and a bunch of other stuff) and, I dunno, Isis or Mafdet, or something, to get a full-on (if non-traditional) Ennead. I love it. 

 

The scarabfolk are one of those "I did not know I needed these" (and, really, I still sort of don't, but they're very cool), the terrain is all pretty well executed in the "I think I went once to some sands that were Egyptian." sort of way - weird ruins in the dunes and all that. Scorpions are neat, and the mummies are... well, okay, they're mummies <shrug>. Nicely done. Sold. 

 

I'm not quite as sold on the Denizens pack - on the one hand, skeledogs! The trolls are cool. The giant slug is just begging for a salt lick to get thrown at it. The hyenaedon is neat, and so is the giant lizzzard. And a few of those I can even use in skiffy games... at least vaguely. But, I dunno. the rest is "well-executed, nicely done, not something that's in my "must have now" list. So, will have to see.

Still my favorite artist when it comes to dragons and wyverns

 

But not enough to spend $50 on a expansion 

 

Same with the interesting scarab guys. They are potentially really cool, but not $50 cool

Heck yeah.  Don't really need the norker but they're neat; orcs don't really do it for me at all and are probably too shrimpy; crayfish, snail, hyena and lizard are straight off my wish list and everything else?  I mean, it's stuff I already have but very well done versions of stuff I already have.  Easy buy for me.

 

How much gets done now and how much gets done in pledge manager later will come down to how expensive my AC fix is but here's my current priority list....

 

Briarwood
Denizens
Bonus Ants

Light House
Anniversary Dragon
Bonus Bees
Bugbears
Sullenhall
Core
Egg of the Phoenix
Gnolls
Chonk Dragon
Green Griffin
…idk, maybe the owlbears man I have a lot of owlbears but the nest and babies are cute

I'd've rather seen Sekhmet the Destroyer. Sekhmet was in one fable an incarnation of Hathor and Ra sent Sekhmet to destroy those who plotted against the sun god. Her bloodlust would've destroyed humanity, if not for beer dyed red. Sekhmet drank herself into a stupor and was finally sated. A raging, roaring lioness goddess would be so awesome. She was also resposible for plagues, so a swarm of flies spiraling around her would be the best. Maybe we can return to Hakir in Bones 7.
