  1. Both look great. Opined over at BGG as well
  2. I completely understand that. I got relic but was a bit lost in the 30k setting. The generic fantasy elements of Talisman do make it easier to connect with new players. Those same mechanics make branding easy too. I could see Talisman going the Steve Jackson Munchkin route with the right marketing. Talisman: Oz Talisman: Lord of the Rings Talisman: Legend of Zelda Talisman: Wonderland and the Through the Looking Glass expansion Talisman: Marvel with Infinity Gauntlet expansion Talisman: Mad Max with the Road Warrior, Thunderdome and Fury Road Expansions Talisman: Arkham Horror any other you can think of?
  3. Just curious, @Artaterxes what didn't you and your group like about Relic? I thought Relic was OK. I was actually looking forward to more expansions for it. I was hoping Nomad Games was going to make a digital edition, but they created the Horus Heresy instead. Which I found a bit harder to get into than Relic. Perhaps Relic got sidelined (besides the obvious FFG/GW split) because of the anticipation 8th edition of Warhammer 40,000.
  4. @PzVIE Been a 40K followersince 2nd edition. That being said, sometimes I liked what GW did other times not so much. I've always done more collecting/painting than playing though. I did manage to somehow not get into Warhammer Fantasy Battle but did like the Old World as presented in the RPG. I was really surprised when the killed off those world and brought in Age of Sigmar. The Stormcast Eternals were designed to be like Space Marines and the whole redesign was intended to make things easier to play. Personally not interested in it at all. The new Warhammer Quest is problematic for me because they changed the game formula which IMHO is what everyone was hoping for and set it in AOS. I don't fault them for trying though and at least we got the Warhammer Quest card game for a season. At the end of 8th Edition I was considered seeing Bretonnia or Ogres but now Bretonnians have gone the way of the squats. Sad. If I do play a fantasy miniatures game it will likely be Kings of War. I wish GW the best and hope Talisman will remain 4th Edition revised and AOS'd. Perhaps they'll consider Remaking Relic and the other games. Though I would think Nomad's Horus Heresy as a board game dead tree Edition more likely
  5. Just saw the news over at Bell of Lost Souls. I am glad it will be back in print, but am curious if this will be Talisman or Talisman: Age of Sigmar
  6. Ah well...one can dream. At least there is the Community Realms project coming at some point.
  7. I was fortunate enough to pick up the entirety of Talisman 4th edition revised over the course of the games duration with FFG. That being said, I suspect (well hope, wished and dreamed might be a better term!) that there were a lot more expansions planned by the FFG design team that was handleing the Talisman line. As it is now the end of the line (for FFG at least), is there any chance we could see the official "what could have beens" that were in the works by the FFG team? Or perhaps by someone in know? I understand if there were/are NDAs involved. Perhaps we'll still see these unknowns one day via the DE fromNomadCarl and Nomad Games. Maybe they make print form with Games Workshop or another company that gets the Liscenese from GW. If it is an NDA please let us know. Regardless, I think it would help out the fans of the game offering them some hope for to see what came after Talisman: The Cataclysm.
  8. @magicrealm Likely you won't read this, because you quit it. Regardless I wanted to post anyway. I can see you're passionate about unique art and don't want Leavon to focus on miniatures but simply the board terrain. I appreciate that and do want him to do more terrain as well but not exclusively. ultimately my opinion and yours is just that. It is up to Leavon totally his choice. from your comment upthread: 1. I forgive you for cursing and insulting me 2. I wish you the best and hope you continue to enjoy playing Talisman 3. May all your hopes and dreams come true and that fear leaves you. 4. I bless you with tact, wisdom, energy and capability to accomplish what you set your heart to do. 5. May peace fill so you no longer have to feel upset about what I or anyone else says or does Stay Awesome!
  9. Leavon I may have missed this up thread, but Slev makes an interesting point. We know your hard at work making the terrain and experimentating with the unpublished characters. All great, but another idea is if you considered making figures for some of the cards? Like companions - the guide, the unicorn, pack mule, horse, cart, pixie, prince, princess. Though what also might be cool is making figures of the strangers that give you spells, or perhaps the fountain, where you can place fate or life tokens in the mini similar to what your thinking of for the warlock.
  10. Leavon The Exorcist model looks great! Just curious on a couple of points. 1. The picture shows the Exorcist with a mustache, but the model has a full beard. 2. The cross is held by a rope in picture, but you placed the cross in his hand I'm curious why you made those design choices. Regardless, it looks amazing and would welcome an opportunity to add it to my collection. Personally I think the cross in hand looks better. I assume that this is your model and Creative Liscenese as an artist and/or IP variance. But could be that it making that rope and beard would be in too hard category. Lastly - what's in hopper for the next terrain piece and miniature?
  11. Up Thread you had mentioned for someone to send you the dimensions for Sleeved cards as the Card Holders you use are designed for cards without sleeves. As I didn't see that anyone ever send you the dimensions on the sleeved cards, I figured I'd post them. Length: 2.25 inches; Width: 4.15 inches; Height: .50 inches. FFG has Mini American Card Sleeves they sell and recommend, which is what I use for my Talisman collection Here is the blurb: Here is the link: https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/products/fantasy-flight-supply/products/mini-american-board-game-sleeves/ Hope this helps and please let us know if you adjust the dimensions. Would really like to have these for my games. Thank you!
  12. Leavon, All these sculpts are pretty amazing. Thanks for doing this, hope to make a purchase from you at some point. It reminded me a little bit of a custom sculpted Talisman Board I saw on YouTube. Well I did a search and found the video! I do suspect that Talisman Island has seen it! But if you haven't check it out, it is really cool! I hope not only you, Leavon, but all the Talisman finds out there find some additional inspiration as they incorporate your pieces into their Talisman Games. The YouTube Blurb is as follows: Here is the Link
  13. The season pass that exists now will have those expansions added to it when they are released. So...If someone wasn't able to get a hard copy/dead tree version of Cataclysm, but did happen to have Talisman: Digital Edition and the season pass, would that said person, be seeing a Cataclysm expansion in the future for Talisman: Digital Edition by Nomad Games? Yes, Nomad is going to make all 4th Edition Talisman products into digital versions, all of which are covered by the existing Season Pass. Also included in said Season Pass are all Mephisto and 2nd Edition character remakes. The only thing that is not included in the Pass is the fan created charity character The Shaman. This is correct. I'm quite saddened by the announcement. I think FFG have done a great job with Talisman and it's shame they won't be making more expansions, but all good things must come to an end I suppose. ....Happy Dance.... Nomad, this is great news. Despite the end of FFG's journey with Talisman 4th Edition Revised, I'm am glad to see it continue Nomad's Talisman Digital Edition. I do enjoy a face to face game, but it is wayyyyyy easier with Talisman DE (i.e. no set-up or clean up). I'd like to second Nomad and fan collaboration expansions. The fan created charity character could serve as a template.

  15. I do agree a connector between Highland and Woodlands would sort of wrap 4e nicely. Though seeing Timescape (love it or hate it) and perhaps a Return of the Dragon 3d Crown of Command would be helpful. @Oberon - and not to be remiss...the Ocean project we've discussed in other threads is a must do. In regards to pricing now...I have most of the expansion save Cataclysm. Thought about buying it the day the FFG/GW Divorce went public. The next day or two it was up up from like $31 to $65. ugghh..Now it's floating around $60.
  16. So...here is a question (with commentary first) 1. We know that Nomad Games has the license to continue and seems to plan on publishing the expansions for Talisman 4th Edition Revised. 2. We also know that the game rights revert back to Games Workshop 3. GW produces board games now (and in the past). Previously it was under Black Industries, which is where we got Talisman 4th Edition. 4. Specialist Games (a section under GW) is gearing up to produce some stuff (i.e Blood Bowl is making a return). Could we dare hope...that instead of fan made section, that GW Specialist Games will reissue all Talisman 4th Edition Revised in mass and finish up with the connector between Highlands and Woodlands, along with a version of Timescape. Could we also dare hope that with Nomad Games making digital versions, that perhaps it may never make it print, could they create the connector and Timescape?????
  17. Talisman Island, As always, you are on top of it! Thank you Sir! Should of stopped over to your site first thing. I do have one other question (wrote the same thing in the Relic Forums)...what does that mean for my 40K FFG Avatar. Does this now go away and those of us with GW images have to find a new one?
  18. Well unfortunately, it looks like you are right. GW & FFG have parted ways (per the news on FFG's front page). I like the game and was hoping to see additional expansions for Relic. That, and having Nomad Games Talisman the Horus Heresy come into print with FFG. Who know what will happen now. Oh yeah, and as a side note...what does that mean for my 40K FFG Avatar. Does this now go away and those of us with GW images have to find a new one?
  19. @Ken at Sunrise Talisman 4th revised I think you can get a lot more out of it than 10 games. I certainly enjoy playing just the core. It has everything you need. The expansions will add new mechanics, endings, cards, and characters. You could mix and match those whenever you wanted. So if you wanted a Halloween theme, add to the Core rules, the Reaper and Blood Moon expansions. If it's winter where your at, play a game with Core and Frostmarch.
  20. I'm frustrated about this. FFG (IMHO) did great work with the whole GW IP. From Talisman to Fury of Dracula to Blood Bowl Team Manager and everything in between. While a lot of scuttle-butt seems to center on the release of the FFG Rune Wars miniature game, I'm wondering what the reverse thought was. FFG has watched over the last year as GW released board game after board game with their miniatures attached. Space Hulk; Warhammer Quest: The Silver Tower; The Horus Heresy: Betrayal at Calath; Assassinorum: Execution Force; Deathwatch: Overkill; Storm Cloud Attack; Imperial Knight: Renegade; and Lost Patrol. I've often wondered what FFG thought of that. Or should I say what Asmodee thought of that... With an 8 year relationship, FFG really was the Board Game & RPG wing for the IP. Talisman 4th Revised was (IMHO) a huge success under FFG. Sad to see it ending. Perhaps the Cataclysm release was indeed a foreshadowing for all of us Talisman Players. Right now, I don't think I'll be interested in a 5th Edition of the game. I'm more concerned about how this effects Talisman Digital. Will the expansion now come to an end? Will we ever see the other expansion? Digital without the Forest is just not right... Nomad Carl any words of encouragement for us?! Perhaps the Cataclysm release was indeed a foreshadowing for all of us Talisman Players.
  21. @sanityismyvanity Just saw Talisman: Horus Heresy and came here today to post on it but you scooped me two days early!
  22. someone mentioned this in the cataclysm thread but wanted to discuss it separately. So we have the base board, then the harbinger foretelling the apocalypse, and now the cataclysm showing the end result. I'm going to suggest that the next big box expansion will be a reimagining of timescape. (NOTE: Just a wild speculation with no basis in anything!) The intent is to allow players to move between original and cataclysm. Not sure how it will work, but will also have a timescape board. I'm also thinking at some point a reboot of talisman reboot to the Warhammer Old World board and then a Age of Sigmar end times thing as is currently happening with Warhammer Fantasy. This would allow for connecting of a timescape to the old world, age of Sigmar and Relic, using the Relic rules as a base. NThe challenge with far future is the connecting of the talisman world to the Warhammer world. While FFG could do it with no explanation, Talisman needs its own far future/space game. I think there is a lot more expansions to come, as the people of talisman went somewhere to flee what was happening to the lands...the questions remains...so where did they go? Here's to Ocean Expansion that 0berron's been talking about to bring us to the other lands! H
  23. Talisman: The City Expansion Video Saw the video over on the steam forum and figured I'd link it here. Though it says available now (13 October 2015 at the time of this posting) still nothing yet on Steam... Looking forward to this!
  24. Saw over at Talisman Island and the Nomad Games Page a couple of announcements for you digital edition players. A 6 player update for DE and it appears the City Expansion will be coming out in a few weeks. As the announcement was almost a month ago, could we dare say, any day now? Here is the blurb of the Steam Annoucement posted by "jaxon [developer] Aug 28 @ 4:41am"
  25. Well.....some very interesting background in the Harbringer Expansion page. Here is the quote: A planet-wide or perhaps an "island-wide" glacier melting glacier implies a lot of water...is this an early indicator of the Ocean Expansion??????????
