    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.

    Glad it made it all the way out there Clint! I don't have the Cataclysm but it looks like most of the spaces are the same thematically they are just in a ruined state. You could paint the pieces to match the cataclysm look, modify them with debris etc. I'd love to offer Cataclysm versions of the models but it'd be a lot of work and I'm not sure how much demand there would be. I do plan to pick up a copy as I think the board is beautiful so maybe one it'll get done....
    Anyway just a quick update to say that the Temple is on the way! Just finished text printing and it's come out really well. I wanted to add some interior detail so I created a font in the middle (credit to my Archeologist girlfriend for that idea   ), it's not very visible but it's a nice little detail I think. It made it easier to print it in 3 pieces and makes it easier to paint before assembly.

    No, Relic *we* disliked. Well, I didn't. My "nongamer" friends did.
    I was trying to say that simple mechanics combined with a simple or generic setting makes the game accessible to anyone. A person new to board games likes roll and move in addition to an easy to understand sorceress or dragon or leprechaun. At least that was my experience.
    When I tried to introduce Relic, it just didn't go as well.

    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

    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.

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    TheMetal1 got a reaction from 0beron in Ocean Expansion? How about this?   
    So pondering this idea of an Ocean Board (So +1 to 0beron's Ocean Board idea).  Here are some thoughts.
     
    1.  Personally, I think it should be tied into the main game as an add-on like all the expansions so far, not a separate game.  
     
    2.  I like the idea of it being a separate board, like Time-Scape. (+1 to 0beron's thoughts on it being a great Digital Expansion due to space - also applies to Time-Scape - might be that at some point Nomad Games publishes a Big Box DE only expansion, similar to the DE only characters.  That way if it sells well enough, they could convert to Fantasy Flight Games publishing it in the dead tree version).
     
    3.  Ocean spaces and an Ocean Deck.  Kind of like how the Firelands change board spaces.  When you enter a space you draw from the Deck, could be a sea creature, could be a sea stranger, pirates, sirens, shipwrecks, traders, explorers, ghost-ships, etc. (So +1 to Nemomon's open board and island idea)
     
    4.  Perhaps a Weather deck as well.  Could be a weather event - Hurricane effects the ocean board, Whirlpool, tropical storm, dead calm.  The weather also effect ship movement - reduced to 1 to 3, 1 to 1, miss a turn, blown off-course.  You could include a dice that allows you determine wind direction, which won't stop you from moving in your chosen direction, but increase or slow it.  (So +1 to Rawsugar's Idea above on the Weather thing)
     
    5.  On the board, like the examples above are smaller Islands that are uneffected by certain Ocean/Weather Deck Events.  Of course having an island sink or an island rise would be cool.  Same thing with a volcano.  
     
    6.  Each Island, you'd have probably an Island Deck with cannibals, xenophobic Elves, hidden entrance to darklands that lead to the Dungeon, perhaps a Mountain Eyrie that Griffins will fly you to the Highlands, of course a Woodlands entrance to get you via fey portals to the Wooldands/Forest areas.   
     
    7.  I think having Talisman Island as the only Continent (for now).
     
    8.  Different Size ships - perhaps an Add-on deck for the City.  You can always build a raft if you're in the forest by the river.  But the ship allows you to have cargo (expanding your carry slots), A warship helps you fight better (like the warhorse), or move faster (like the riding horse). So now you'd have a ship deck to add to the city.  
     
    9.  Perhaps, it's the Realm of Davy Jones, the Kraken, Talisman Pirates, or Talisman Viking (in the cold part of the ocean).   Much like the other expansions, you'd have to travel to end board location in the far corner of board (furthermost from the start point of the board). And much like the other expansions, you get to drawn from somelike the a Treasure hoard deck (Davy Jone's Locker, Treasure Cave, etc.)   
     
    10.  Treasure Maps that act like warlock quests but oriented on going to a particular island and getting a buff or bonus, Talisman, etc. 
     
    11.  Probably a bit much, but you could decide to travel, under or over the Ocean as well.  Drawing from different decks and facing different endings - above you face the Pirate; below Davy Jones or the Kraken; over - I have no idea maybe a celestial or ocean dragon.  If you fly over you could leave from the City by purchasing a dirigible/ballon or elemental powered ship or flying creature animal.  Highlands Expansion could be flying creatures.  If underwater, you'd leave from the city (purchasing a submarine of sometype) or perhaps a tunnel in the Dungeon. Water Breathing could be a spell, trinket, or item you use to go underwater and travel as well. 
     
    12.  Special Ending - could be Pirates, Vikings, Kraken, Ocean/Celestial Dragon, Davy Jones, Sea King, Perfect Storm, Whirlpool. 
     
    13.  Character Cards - Sailor, Windwalker (can fly over the spaces), Animal Tamer, Mechanical Flyer, Submariner,
     
    14.  Thinking a couple of Fritz Lieber stories for inspiration - "When the Sea King goes away" breathable Tunnels, etc. 
     
    As a side note, Rawsugar's idea that getting the Crown of Command makes you god of the Realm.  I'm with Nemomon that when you get the Crown you become defacto Ruler of the Realm, not a god.
