I'll get enough sets to use in place of the counters in the Designer's edition. I'm happy they are doing them in red/blue so they don't have to be painted. I always think painted figures look naff in board games.


They are also doing them in blue/red as an add on (makes sense as the forces are not the same troop types) with green being a stretch goal. Main issue with this is that delivery is well into next year - I wonder if they are using the same factory that delayed everything last time?

I'm getting four boxes, two of each colour combo. Should give me plenty of toys to play with. The long delivery time is a worry, as is the very high shipping to Europe.
When I die I want the Arsenal players to lower me into my grave so they can let me down one last time.

Hey, that particular Kickstarter (from above post) could use some backers. Time is running out.

These are the type of Kickstarters miniature lovers SHOULD be backing. This is what kickstarter is meant for, to help out smaller companies. A fiver would get you a mini of your choice.

Ian is 'throwing in' a new Djiin Sculpt with any pledges of 13gbp or more.

That level of pledge gets you the Djiin and three figures of your choice, which seems more than reasonable.

Stuff your own stocking this year!!

Cost? In my case I would only have gone for one figure so that would have been £8

Maybe it's that they looked soft and limited in detail?

Maybe it's an odd mix - not quite zombie, not quite fantasy, not quiet Cthulhu and not quiet horror.

for me that, softly sculpted, plus not genres I want to start gaming in (though ist good to see horror stuff that isnt cthulhu) - and at the price, no thanks.

i surely cannot be the only person who sees that " timing " becoming a bigger issue than quality, price, or content or market is a SERIOUSLY bad problem.

It has been bothering me a long time but lately MUCH more so than usual.
