It was going to be goblins. Lots of them. I’d got piles of the little fellers piled up ready, then this nice chap in a snazzy brown outfit came and delivered a box.
It’s shiny and it’s new.
It’s not my fault.
You’ll be pleased to know that I haven’t opened mine yet as I’ve shown the willpower to stick to working on my Dreadball minis 😉
Be interesting to see your take on the quality and layout of the rules, which I haven’t looked at myself, but they have taken some criticism.
That’s very commendable Sami.
I wasn’t thinking of doing an unboxing as there seem to be plenty of those about. I’ll be looking at some of the details though, and probably the gameplay once I get it all built. I’ve also got a few of the metal figures that Mike’s done for this range, which I thought would be interesting to put side by side.
What’s wrong with you man?!
Have you no discipline?!!!!
I met a wargamer once who didn’t want new shinies….
You are only mortal in this regard.*Looks at unfinished Dreadball Minis”
In a similar vein, I recall reading a thread on a forum once where this wargamer claimed to have finished painting all of his models and was asking for input on what he should do next.
Nobody believed him, of course…
I can only assume this chap rode a unicorn to work as well, given he simply has to be a mythological creature himself…
Most of the thread consisted of him trying to convince everyone else that he was serious.
I had the same problem with Dreadball…
I played this on the weekend, but was only able to do so after printing out 7 pages of errata and FAQ, which covered about half of the issues with this rule book. We had a blast playing and the game has great cinematic moments, they’ve unfortunately not done too well with their rules prior to publishing. Once they sort it all out, I think this game will be really quite good. I can’t recommend trying to play this straight from the book, though.
Still waiting for mine ( my fault, forgot to confirm on the pledge manager… ) so seeing this makes me pretty jelly!
Is that jello or jam? And which flavour? This trans-continental fruit processing lark is more complicated than it looks.
I am jealous.
I used to have a cat called Jealous.
Too much soup has clearly addled your mind!
It made perfect sense when I was 7.
I’m about 90% certain I’m not a cat.
You should check the other 10%. Cats can be pretty cunning.
I picked up a copy off the man himself today so am no longer jealous. I may still be a cat.
Lucky one !!
I regret I didn’t pledge on this… but I’m not weak now I know 😀
Minis are really great indeed.
As the lady said: I can resist anything except temptation.
I’m happy with the quality so far (Unboxed and started putting minis together, punched out the card stock, etc), and have read through the rules. I’m still waiting to play and would love to hear more of a review and thoughts from someone who has done professional game design work. So, if you are distracted, at least you can say it’s part of the new discipline for posting reviews on your blog. 😀
An excuse! Huzzah!
Curses! I missed this one on the kickstarter and was gutted when I saw what was included in the deal. And then I remembered my painting mountain, some of which is over five years old and was mildly relived rather than gutted.
Well it’s a board game, so not painting them won’t get you arrested 🙂
Maybe, but I’m not sure I could live myself
hi jake been looking at this, i’m intetested to see what you think of the game. I really dont want a game that i need so much errata to play it my head pops. malifaux killed my will to play it. so much errata it was a mine field.
I have heard that there’s a lot of errata, though I don’t know without looking whether it really is errata (changing what is printed) or whether it’s clarifications and, effectively, FAQ. I’ll post on quirk when I’ve had a proper read through all the gubbins.
1.5 rules are soon up for download. Else: Quality of the minis is good. Only the boards could have been better. But if they sometime release upgreaded boards I would be absolutly happy.
