Waiting for most of my 2016 KS stuff…got 7th Sea 2nd Ed. and Dropfleet Commander….both are great.
Do back mostly for tabletop skirmishers like Wolsung/Carnevale ect. and RPG´s and I am avoiding the large board games.
Had the “lots of stuff but not much game-play-quality” feel already in 2015. Played a friends Brimstone and Zombicide and they where ok…but not that we would play them that much. Also often too time consuming in preperation. Said in another topic that the “huge piles of minis” deals tend to turn me off…just because I do not have the time to play with all of them much….and space is a Problem too…so I do not back often at all. But I bought mantics Walking dead in retail and it was fun right out of the box without preperation…great stuff!
Was waiting for WM/H 3rd to finally hop on board…but was disapointed that they did not get rid of the multiple minis with same pose in a box thing. Somehow I am not willing to pay big bugs for dublets…and have no time to convert to avoid that…so I hasitated to buy in…also was not sure of the Plastics quality…and after what I hear about 3rd I am not unhappy with that desicion.
Sticking to my skirmisher for a while longer then 🙂
And finaly….my BIG Goal for 2017…besides spending less on my hobbys and use the stuff I already have more….is GETTING STARTED WITH PAINTING. After 30+ years of silver and grey pleasure…and a lot of AT 43 and Confrontation prepainted…I really need to get that going…better late then never ;-P
I am also not so convinced by those huge “treys” for 3 minis….think this game would have benefitted from a smaller scale perhaps? I have no problem with lipped bases…but those giants distract me too much.
Same here….do not like most of the minis…looking much too strange for my taste…and even good gameplay does not get me to spend this much money on one game. Crazy KS!
Impressiv tour…will have a look at the diary 🙂
To be honest…tones of plastic crack in board games have lost their appeal to me with so many of those games around now 🙁
Welcome back! What parts did you visit?
Still on the fence…but more money-wise because Spiel´16 in Essen is next friday…and money still does not grow on trees 😉
As far as I know this game was a challenge for GW back in the days when the original publisher was THE big player on the minis market besides GW…and the content was way ahead of GW at that time….and now FFG is supporting the new incarnation…it kinda makes it an interesting move after loosing the license from GW…doesn´t it 😉
But with 501 $ worth for 149$…and still growing…I don´t see me not backing it in the end….crazy amount of stuff! Hope the Quality of the minis holds up!!!
See you soon UH…looking Forward to those battle Reports 🙂
Oh..and nice fan page there Ulthoroc!
To be honest…I have not played a great deal of all the stuff I have…be it video games, board games, card games, miniature games or roleplaying games…or read all the books I own for that matter…for varius different reasons….and I have still hope for my time after retirement to catch up….yeah I know…but one has to have hope ;-)…and sometimes…when the addict part is not so strong…I do wonder if I really need this or that game…silly thought I know….sometimes one gets week 😛
But with RPG´s I never do that…I accepted a looong time ago that as an adult I do not have the time like I had as a teenager where we played entire weekends non-stop…nowadays its more like an evening every other month…or less…so I have no problem if I actually do not play those with my friends….for me if the setting, art and writing draw me to it…it is enough to just read the stuff….more like a good book…my imagination goes on endless adventures while reading…and I do enjoy that very much…even if not playing the game ever.
Oh…and thx for the tip btw…looks really interesting indeed!
We are all addicts…so stop trying to pretend its otherwise…makes it soooo much easier ;-P
I do not expect it to be that complex..so comparing it to a GM role in an RPG might be a little too much. From the look of it its seams more of a tactical choice how to use the resources to help oneself and hinder the others…and having an eye on what the next person can do to you with the results of what you have done ect. Only if I understood it right that is.
