After watching the Wrath gameplay vids on this site I’m serious tempted to buy, but the Ebay stuff is expensive in the UK.
£40 Faction Starter
£55 KS Exclusives only (silly money for so few figures)
£76 Faction + KS ExclusiveMay 13, 2015 at 12:42 am in reply to: For a non-wargamer. What's make makes each one special / unique? #9371
Anyone got an opinion on Malifaux? Looks interesting, but something about it puts me off… and it’s not just because it sounds french 🙂May 11, 2015 at 5:38 am in reply to: For a non-wargamer. What's make makes each one special / unique? #9359
As you said, maelstrom is next year and were hoping to pick up at an expo in UK, maybe even find some out of print games.
Uk price for WoK is £55, so quite expensive at moment.May 11, 2015 at 4:48 am in reply to: For a non-wargamer. What's make makes each one special / unique? #9357
Had looked into first three you suggested, but not Deadzone.
Is wrath of kings at retail yet? Or still KS backers only? Can’t find it anywhere but eBay and is KS surplus I think. I favour that at moment.
Used to play Warhammer fantasy, but this is old school box set in pre-rpg setting era. Still got the box, but that needed a big table to play on and was very messy.
Warhammer 40k is games workshop ripoff prices, so out of my budget (as I am hooked on KS at present).May 10, 2015 at 11:35 pm in reply to: For a non-wargamer. What's make makes each one special / unique? #9354
Assembly I expect. I know plastic easier than metal as a rule.
I think the 20-30 may give more tactical variety, so looking leaders and squads probably.May 10, 2015 at 7:57 pm in reply to: For a non-wargamer. What's make makes each one special / unique? #9352
I’m looking to start a skirmish game with 28-32mm miniatures (probably).
Plan is for me and a friend to buy a faction each, paint them up and unleash the dogs… you get the idea.
I prefer a game with starter boxes, ideally individual factions (as opposed to rival armies in one box).
Fantasy, or SF rather than historical.
And nothing that will give us a migraine when trying to work out the rules (cards might help in that respect).
So… give me you suggestions and recommendations please…
Warquest is back up on kickstarter, but still too expensive for my liking. Starts at $120 for base game and goes up to $260 for the extra armies.
I know it will pick up before the end, but B-sieged is progressing slowly at moment. Possibly result of the complaints about postage with Bloodrage, the american community seems outraged at the price, but I still think I’m getting a good deal considering how many figures I’m getting.
The end of the Conan money problems may be a factor too, as many may be holding on to their dosh for the pledge manager.
Greeks are famous for their wise financial policy. Ask the EU!
I failed my will save and pledged to B-sieged instead of orcs.
Another KS game intrigue me, Project Elite.
Big fan of the ‘two’ alien films (alien 3 and resurrection don’t exist) and concept+miniatures drew me in.
Then I watched the gameplay video and that put me off. Too much frantic dice rolling for my liking. Periods of thinking followed by 2 minutes of continuous dice rolling is not for me.
Yeah! I noticed the cartoony sculpts. B-sieged look much better. It was CMON’s sculpts, theme and gameplay that drew me to pledge of Bloodrage.
I may hover between games until last few hours of OMD and see what unlocks for B-sieged (BS seemed an unfair abbreviation for the game)
Maybe the next evolution in miniatures gaming is life size miniatures.
We already have bigatures in X-Wing, so I want six foot tall resin figures to slide about the place.
Need a bigger house and much bigger bank account though 🙂
