This seem to be the summer of Kickstarters. For once that doesn’t mean I back them, instead the pledges are dropping in.
Heroines in sensible shoes arrived last month, on time (!), and the figures are really gorgeous. Now they are gorgeous in the tin mountain as I have far too many unfinished figures on the painting table at the moment.
Call of Cthulhu from RAFM arrived last week, embarrassingly late, after an embarrassingly badly managed kickstarter. Rotten communications really soured that project, which is very unfortunate as the minis I got are fantastic. They are also in the tin- and resin-mountain at the moment, except for some small terrain-stuff that landed on the painting table as they will be finished in next no time.
|This is a fully equipped dungeon... The Zealot stuff in a small resin-mountain.|
I got all of the Twisting Catacombs dungeon scenery stuff from Zealot the other week. Another very late pledge due to the fact that the kickstarter was incredibly successful and it takes time to produce thousands upon thousands of resin furniture and small stuff. The very big difference compared to RAFM is the communications that has been continuous and open. I really want to make a dent in the mini-mountain of scenery and quite a lot of stuff has hit the painting table. A post on that will go live later this week
I’m also expecting the rest of my Zombicide: Black Death stuff to arrive any day now, and the same with Mercs: Recon.
Zombicide is great fun, we play it quite a lot and those figures will make it to the gaming table soon, especially the heroes.
Mercs on the other hand… well, I’m not sure. The game looks okay, the minis paint up well, but I’m not sure that I’m really into the period. I might sell everything or I might paint it up and play the game and maybe use the minis for other games also (Black Ops comes to mind). If you’re interested in the “Agent Level” + “All in add on packs” + assorted extras for the same price I gave for them (+ postage) then give me a call.
I do believe I have to do something about the size of that mountain…
