  1. Hehe yea I know there are multiple reasons it's a good idea, just was kind of funny to open the box and see 3 tiny bags on the right side of the box then a big cardboard accordion giving it all structure. It's not a complaint at all, just kinda silly for specific expansions.
  2. I like this but I'm gonna say what we were all thinking yesterday... Whats with the box size? I know I know, it's probably just a standard box size they will use for expansions, and bigger models like golems and worms may need it, but the command pack was 3 thin bags and 80 percent air hehe.
  3. Don't sweat. I just bought both command packs. Fortuna's dice and File Leader are in both. Of the 3 other unique cards in each pack, we've already seen Shield Wall in the core set, so I wouldn't worry about them not showing up in the "opposing" armies' next expansions.
  4. Aaaand got it. They had 2 left, all the others were on reserve. Glad I went at lunch, was thinking of just going after work.
  5. I hope that's the case for me tomorrow. I didn't really pre order and I've got only 2 stores within (manageable) driving distance that would carry it. In a way I'd kind of be happy if it sold out, meaning there would be a good player base here, but I also want my copy tomorrow.
  6. I'll be buying into all the factions, mainly because as I said in another thread, I'll probably be the house people come to to play, and I'm not really in any game groups, nor is it too big in my immediate area. Basically I will end up being the hub for any games of RWMG, with people coming to me to play with whatever I've got, just like any other full board game, so I'll have to have options. It honestly doesn't seem too bad though. I'll be picking up a core box tomorrow (supply willing) and even after that, the commander pack and a couple expansions isn't too much. Looking past that into the elves... it's doable.
  7. Looks like the "essentials pack" just solved the problem for anyone who wants to come in on elves a bit later in the year instead of the first 2 armies. Edit: Missed that it had been mentioned previously, MB. Still good news though. I have a few friends that will be easier to draw in now.
  8. This and Kingdom Death will be my 2 main mini's games (though KD is not a war game). I have 2 40k armies but I'm just about over that game. I'm giving them one more shot with next edition to revamp that game and not make it dreadfully slow, clunky, and just a mess to set up, then I'm selling my armies and putting that to rest. I'm very much hoping this game will take over my war gaming need. I love high fantasy, I like that Terrinoth IS high fantasy with just a couple slight bends to keep it interesting (orcs are decent follows), and I love the modern game design approach that this game seems to be implementing. Fingers crossed, but all previews are looking go to me so far.
  9. I may be a bit boring, but my house is usually the place people come to game, so the upper racks of my display case will hold all this. I'll probably be buying multiple, maybe even all 4 if the game is solid, armies since I'm usually the host. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/60128562/ Runewars will have to play nice with the Kingdom Death minis already in there. I'm not sure if that's a good idea.... if the 2 come to life at night I wouldn't put money against the kingdom death monsters...
  10. Yup, definitely for home use I'll make a few proxy copies. Just feels kind of odd. It's kind of like how with Warhammer conquest (RIP) the core set didn't give you enough neutrals for 2 people to play with, and that was the only place you could get them. Proxies can be made, sure, but just unpleasant...
  11. Hmm... it's the neutral cards that concern me. I'll be playing this game mostly with all my stuff. Meaning people that come here and play aren't going to have either own stuff. Though we could just put the cards in a neutral space and mark what units have them, it just seems a little off. Not gonna make any assumptions until I have the boxes anyway.
  12. Ooof. Ups and downs here. Love the game love the content. Sad about the date push. As to the models yea I agree that bendable spears aren't too bad, can straighten those out, but if the bases are crooked that's gonna be iffy. Looked liek that may have been the case just a tick on the rune golem. I'm still in on this game, but there may be a bit of work to me done on some of the pieces.
  13. Some good sites and suggestions, thanks all. I was looking at http://www.pworkwargames.com/en/ I'm sure FFG will put out a play mat soon, but this site's "The Valley" play mat comes in 6x3 and looks perfect. There are a few other options that look neat too. Good play mats are a cheap way to make the game look good without much effort.
  14. I'd have to imagine its March 31 weekend or just a day or 2 around that, given when that's the beasts of war event and they will be giving copies out. Well it at least means copies will bee physically available.
  15. Sometimes you can get creative. My Descent minion ettin came with a broken off arm (wielding the club) so we fit it into his other hand and glued it so now it looks like he's beating heroes with his own severed arm. What a badass... Also in owning every single Descent expansion, that's the ONLY mini that's come damaged, so I feel pretty confident on these Runewars Minis
