I mean, in a sense we’re all vampires. We drain energy from other life forms. The difference is one of degree.
Sinful mutants and beasties need a whupping armed with the The Others: 7 Sins rules summary and reference v1.
Another huge box o’ plastic from a CMON Kickstarter, The Others: 7 Sins, like Blood Rage before it, has the distinction of having being designed by game-designer-rockstar Eric M. Lang. So you’re in pretty safe hands. It’s an entertaining variation on the usual dungeoncrawling themes, only this time it’s a near future English city being overrun by horrific Hell-beasties aligned to each of the Seven Deadly Sins. An excellent excuse to let miniature designer extraordinaire and expert sculptor of mangled mutating flesh (and bumcracks – there’s a lot of bumcracks on these monsters), Mike McVey, run riot.
Throw in ex-Games Workshop artist Adrian Smith, among others, and you have some impressive talent working on this design. And CMON delivered the goods and a huge amount of value for your Kickstarter gaming dollar: there’s enough miniature painting here to last me until the actual apocalypse. When big publishers are charging US$100 for a pretty standard game these days, CMON is impressively putting them to shame.
But again, what’s with the unnecessarily double-barrelled names? I beg you CMON, just choose one and roll with it!
PS The unboxing video is coming very soon – I’ve recently upgraded from iMovie to Final Cut Pro which has briefly curtailed my usual speed and efficiency. 🙂
@UH : how do you find FCP? I keep thinking I should upgrade to FCP but so far iMovie is still adequate for whatever editing tasks I need to do n
It’s definitely more professional. I got fed up with iMovie because of the lack of control over text, mainly. When I have more time, I’d like to make better titles (I’ve got Motion too). It’s just finding the time to learn these things!
Looks handy. Thanks once again for your efforts.
Still painting up the minis though..
I haven’t even thought about starting on this one yet. Two GW games have had me painting for months.
