There will be a day when you will want to do something like ECW and wish you took that free download…
Looks like fun.
I’m very happy that turned out legible.
When I was in grade school, instead of learning how to write in cursive script with the rest of the class, I was told to focus on continuing to learn how to print.
Now that I do nearly all of my writing with keyboards or on screens, even I have a hard time reading my own handwriting.
After a “break” I am posting a new model…
Thanks for the input!
How replayable do you find it to be?
I like the older models more than the newer stuff.
Great looking force.
I avoid buying from people that are consistently rude. Once in a while isn’t a big deal.
We all have bad days.
I have a friend who owns a hobby shop. He is a great guy, looks out for his regular customers, tries to be welcoming and helpful for new people, sends customers to other local stores if he knows they have something in stock that he doesn’t. Sometimes he is having a bad day and says something inconsiderate. He has lost customers over that and he is aware of it and he regrets it for the lost relationships as well as the income.
He used to employ this guy who didn’t like a popular product line. This employee would bash the game in front of customers. He found he had a lot of stock he could no longer move as those people went elsewhere.
People will react to the things you say or write. You have to be careful or it will cost you. But retailers and manufacturers are still just people, too.
No problem, happy to help.
Hi, Gone Fishing. I haven’t played Arkham Horror, yet. I have friends who have enjoyed playing it.
If you want to play as an investigator encountering Lovecraftian monsters and trying to defeat them, then Arkham Horror seems like a good choice.
Cthulhu Wars is more of a battle royale of Lovecraftian horrors after the point where humanity has failed to stop them. The designer is the same guy who created Call of Cthulhu.
I have played Hills Rise Wild, which is sort of a miniatures game on a board. Everyone controls hick cultists trying to get a hold of the Necronomicon. It isn’t very good.
I have just gotten Fate of the Elder Gods, where each player controls a cult and is trying to either be the first to summon their elder god or be the one who has gotten the least interference from investigators. It looks good.
Mythos Tales is in the style of Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detective. You are given a map, a mystery and you travel around trying to piece together the solution, visiting locations and interviewing witnesses. It isn’t a boardgame so much as a mystery story that the players try to solve and you can only complete each scenario once as you then know the solution. It’s a brain bending experience though.
Pulp Alley or Strange Aeons are miniatures games that work well for this type of setting.
Hope you find a Mythos game that will work for you.
Check out the list here, you can sort by rank.
Back to Cthulhu Wars…
That’s nice looking.
Thanks for the tip.
So I’m back with a couple of more models.
I’ve missed doing this more often.
Gamecraft, Burn In Designs and puzzles.
This has been a major disappointment to me. The rumor is that someone has bought the license and is considering continuing with the line. If that is true, that would be great, but I’m not holding out hope.
I had shelved the project out of frustration with the situation. Now that things are no longer in question, I feel a sort of relief and that has me interested in picking things up again and getting some 3d printed models to fill in the blanks.
However, the reality is that my hobby time has diminished significantly and I am not able to get in as much painting or dice rolling as I used to be able to up until a few months ago. When I do sit down to paint, it’s for my Judge Dredd project or for Cthulhu Wars. I’m not sure when I’d be able to resume Robotech.
As a Robotech fan since the 80’s, this game was like THE GAME that I wanted to dedicate my time to. I really enjoyed building the models (even though I know many/most people didn’t) and working on the terrain elements. I had big plans for the project. The poor handling and the mismanagement really put a damper on my enthusiasm.
I’m going to keep my eye on this thread.
Well, https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rrpgt/robotech-rpg-tacticstm/posts/2120399 finally ends the question of if the game will ever see the remaining models.
Great looking game and collection.
Was it everything you thought it would be?
Yes, he matches Zombiesmith’s style well.
There is a Princess Bride scenario in here.
And I have returned!
The iconography looks to be consistent with Firefly: the Game and each scenario in this one is supposed to be like working a job in the other.
Gonna keep my eye on this one.
Heavy Gear is 10/12mm, as well.
That’s the biz!
Adventures beyond the city.
Really great looking.
I guess the lesson here is never to play with anyone from Crete.
Very interesting posts.
I’m going to compare them to my paint set.30/11/2017 at 14:56 in reply to: Figures for Star Wars – Imperial Assault or Legion? #77411
I think Legion will be 30mm-ish.30/11/2017 at 14:53 in reply to: Figures for Star Wars – Imperial Assault or Legion? #77410
I think that the Imperial Assault miniatures are going to be smaller than the Legion ones. Depending on the scale you are looking for, the IA miniatures may not be compatible with other ranges.
Just some things to keep in mind.
