  1. I think my brother and I have almost all of the Star Wars minis to actually replace the Leader tokens. However it may clutter up the board with too many minis. I will have to try it and see what it looks like once I get my copy of the game. As far as the painting end it would be cool for a pre-painted set but I am looking forward to painting the game myself.
  2. These look fantastic! I can't wait to get around to paint mine.
  3. That's cool. I just think paying to play a Beta seems weird, at least at that price point.
  4. I have a solution. Pick your favourite RPG system and convert Star Wars to it. For the rest there is Star Wars Saga or for us old schoolers there is our Star Wars D6.
  5. What happened to the days of filling out a form that included your RPG experience and then being chosen to playtest the game and signing a NDF on behalf of your gaming group. Being sent the game via PDF for free and then playing and sending in session reports and questions pertaining to the rules and how they work in game? I have playtested a few RPG's that went to print for companies and had my name in them. It was a privilege to be chosen to help round out a soon to be finished product. This PAYING to playtest destroys the very concept. How about you PAY the people playtesting. very backwards FFG. I expect better from you!
  6. Or you could find a D&D miniature that is close enough to represent him on the board. Other option is fantasy miniature companies and again find a model to represent him.
  7. An all Ork Campaign would be wicked!
  8. I attempt to get here and check out what is going on but been busy myself in the last year or so which has led to me not stopping in as frequently as I use to. The boards are kept alive by those of us who still pop in from time to time and keep discussions going. Grimm is a very special game and although it only got one book there is still loads of stuff you can do with it. Lots of additional material found in faery tales and books that inspire. Like said way back when I was using it for a Spiderwick campaign. The next time I can get this to the table I would like to do something Alice in Wonderland inspired.
  9. H.B.M.C. said: Baradiel said: 1. Flesh out the other game lines first. Really? Putting aside Black Crusade as it's the newest, each of the other three lines have heaps of books. I think they've all been 'fleshed out'. That's not say that they can't or won't release more, but it's not as if each line's got a Core Rulebook, a GM Kit and that's it. BYE Gotta agree with H.B.M.C. on this one. At one time a Core Rulebook, a GM's Kit your imagination, and maybe even a players guide and a critter book was all you needed for a fully fleshed out line. The rest is all filler. I am really looking forward to this book and actually excited to see something like this come out. One book with loads of potential.
  10. It doesn't surprise me that people see a mix of other games that FFG does in this. It seems like most FFG products whether new or new editions of older games always seem to join the cookie cutter of game mechanics they have at their disposal. Not that it is a bad thing but most mechanics found in one FFG product can be found in another FFG product. I'm not all that keen on the new art direction but it looks like they are trying to appeal a bit to the MMORPG players to maybe tear them away from their computer screens just long enough to play one of these things call a "board game".
  11. I'm interested in seeing just what Second Ed is all about.
  12. I personally think all this whining and moaning over the stats being the same is of the nitpickers kind. The game is great for what it is. Enjoy it and people need to stop expecting it to be something it is not. It oozes theme and character. I love it how the 9 times out of 10 the people who ***** the most are the ones who have NEVER played the game but just read the rules online. Get a copy or find a friend who has it and play instead of causing hearsay and lies.
  13. Yeah I am sure the next print run might get some better care shown to them. I wonder if the pre-painted sets had any bend to them?
  14. I had done the hot and cold as per the norm with most bent pieces. However there are a couple that are being stubborn as hell and going back to their warped state. It is just the bases but man they just won't stay flat. I thought maybe after I soften them up I will put them in coloured gang bases and then dunk them in the cold and see this that helps. Even found my Duke fig I ordered had a bit of a bend in his base and sword was bent.
  15. Yeah the fact that we are getting plastic Lovecraftian critters is the icing on top of this cool looking cake! So looking forward to this one!
  16. BillStivers said: I also don't understand the "hate" that people express for games, the best action is to just not play it, if you don't like it. Here is to good gaming and to good friends. Agreed! But I think some just like to ***** for the sake of bitching.
  17. I find when we play there is a nice back and forth. Some quests are pro-Overlord and some Pro-Heroes. Also if the heroes get beat they play through the Quest again and try to do things different with a different strategy. I still don't see where all these balance issues people seem to have come from its not a HUGE issue as some people claim it to be. Again I say Balance is for suckers!
  18. Lindel is just as playable in Campaign as he would be in Vanilla Descent. I don't understand how people over think these things? And how can you change a skill every time? Well that is simple as per the ability. Each new area I enter I "may" swap out my existing skill with a new one. Which consists of me drawing a new card from the skill deck. which as easy as taking my hand and lifting a card from one of the 3 skill decks. That is how.
  19. Almost done painting these Lt's so pics will be forthcoming when I get the time to take them. But I really like the look of these pieces.
  20. Nice! I had done the very same thing with my Darkwind. He really needs to be up on higher to see his face otherwise he almost looks to be leaning forward on the base and it makes him look crowded. By putting him on a "mountain peak" as it were it makes him more imposing as well.
  21. I think its all speculation until he is actually used.
  22. Big Remy said: Yes, I've done and it definitely worked. I'll for taking a good look at a situation, but if the heroes can't get through the discussion part of their turn in 5 minutes than they need to hurry up. Agreed!
  23. I really like the Lindel card and given his back story/history this refelects well on a very old old and wise/determined elf. As I have stated before this guy reminds me of a Terrinoth version of Glorfindel. Looking forward to DungeonQuest and these new Heroes! Since I am usually the Overlord I look forward to trying to best this guy.
  24. These models are nice and LARGE! I got mine and there is a bit of modeling to be done on Darkwind and I found Soriss to be a little leaning to one side but again with some modelling you can correct this. I am hoping to get some pics up in the coming weeks of my completed pieces. But these are great minis and it would be cool to see Avatars get minis but I don't think the demand would be big enough for them. So I may end up looking for other minis from other model lines to represent when it comes to The Final Battle. Thanks again to FFG for making these available!
