    Thanks for the response! I've been painting since the late 80s but until recently started sealing them, resulting in a few minis that needed touch ups or almost whole repainted...then sealed this time. I've been using Armory and Army painter sealers but was curious what others were using so I appreciate the detailed response :)

    In the early 90s I had 5 chessex boxes that held 80 or a piece (double layer boxe). Still have them with a few unpainted ral partha minis too :) Now I have 2 battlefoam cases foe painted and plastic minis with the big ones on a shelf. I like the IKEA cases as I already have one but it has superhero and such statues in it currently.

    These minis have been great to see made, much better quality and sculpt detail compared to the Bones line in my opinion. Just finished painting 3 myself the past few days. The attached shields and weapons can make getting underneath tricky but just a minor annouyance to an outstanding line. The next wave release this month as well!

    Glad a stumbled across the thread, amazing work! How did the mammoth and giant adventure go as I would have been amazed if I was at the table and someone placed that combo on the table. Last question, maybe I missed it in the painting set up picture but what kind of sealant do you use?

    The only thing I'm worried about at the moment is worst case, they crash and burn, by the time it's "planned" to be out in November will be past yam credit card charge back 90 day time frame. I'm maybe 5% worried so,etching like this happens so it's a slight nagging in the back of my mind. The sectional book is a selling point to me. With no PDF, being able to keep relevant pages handy...

Started playing back in highschool in the mid to late 80s.

  • 08:10 PM - Koren n'Rhys mentioned EthanSental in post Mentzer's Epic Worlds of Empyrea Kickstarter Launches For 10 Game Systems!
    I'll be interested to see how it all plays out, for sure. I'd love a BECMI box set, but the price is too steep for my blood, unfortunately. It does seem ambitious, yes, but Frank seems to be trying to do it right and get lots of help. Some hefty pledge levels there though, for what you seem to get. YMMV. EthanSental: Darlene was the artist who did the big two poster hex map of Greyhawk from the original folio and box set - HUGE nostalgia factor for new maps by her. And just to point out, Tal'Dorei was a single hardcover book, I believe? This will be more akin to the old campaign box sets from TSR - multiple booklets, poster maps, etc. So much more expensive to produce.

  • 11:09 PM - Adso quoted EthanSental in post Pathfinder 2 Character Sheet #1: Fumbus, Goblin Alchemist
    I didn't play much 4e but seeing 15 hp at first level seems high to my 1e/2e/3e/5e mindset. Function of game design for the edition but just odd to my initial eye balling :) still ill looking forward to reading the final PDF rules book to mine for my home D&D game! This is an effect of our take on ancestries and 0-level characters. Unlike older editions, you gain Hit Points for you ancestry not just for your class and when you level. So, for instance, the gnome baker living in town might have 8 Hit Points, while the 1st-level gnome rogue you just met at the tavern might have 16 Hit Points.

The attached shields and weapons can make getting underneath tricky but just a minor annouyance to an outstanding line. The next wave release this month as well! Iíve still found the details on them a bit shallow compared to metal minis or something like the GW plastic minis. I recently painted the half-elf sorcerer with the flame coming from his hands as my Wild Mage PC in our current ToA campaign. I found the eye sockets on that mini to be the smallest Iíve ever painted before (it was something of a minor miracle that I managed to not make him look cross-eyed and only took 2 goes to paint the eyes). The lips and mouth were basically non-existent on my sculpt, so I just had to freehand them on. I loved the clear plastic though as I was able to make a really cool looking purple flame with just a simple wash. I was r...

    I heard Jester mentioned on the Friday fireside chat episode :). As far as the possible alt covers for the core books, I'm probably down with picking this up, mainly for the errata printing compared to my first edition printing books. Yup. That was my tweet at roughly the 20 minute mark, quoting a DEFCON 1 comment.

Last question, maybe I missed it in the painting set up picture but what kind of sealant do you use? Thanks! BadFruul gets dropped on the table a week from Saturday at a small local con called MageCon. I just got done packing the first adventure I am running - a decent sized dungeon. I'm running three games and I am bringing a TON of luggage! ;) I am a big fan of Testor's Model Master Lusterless (Flat). It is a super matte finish. So much so that occasionally I have to touch up shiny bits like armor, weapons, tongues, etc. It is not a super high endurance finish however. For some frequently handled miniatures I will start with a layer of gloss and follow with a couple layers of Lusterless (Flat). It will dull pigments slightly. The best finishes, like Daler Rowney varnish, are applied with an airbrush...

  • 01:00 PM - imagineGod quoted EthanSental in post Warhammer 40,000 Wrath & Glory Cover and Pre-Order!
    Not being a 40k follower, I'm getting this one and the C7 warhammer rpg confused when I see anything warhammer rpg threads. Same universe, different eras, different companies and different rules. Same time frame to be coming out or pre-order. Anyone picking up both or leaning toward one or the other for those who play warhammer? I'm still picking up the C7 version, just curious is the serious fan grabbing both. (1) The Cubicle 7 game is the classic Warhammer Fantasy 4th Edition using a ruleset very similar to the very first ever Warhammer Fantasy Role Play edition, so basically a percentile D100. (2) Sadly, Ulisses North America is publishing Warhammer 40,000 (call it the very far future of Warhammer) and uses a D6 dice pool, similar to the miniatures wargame. So, I get the different design choices for the Warhammer Fantasy vs Warhammer 40,000, but the price of WH40K pre-order is so high due to the special D6 and other cards being bundled, which if you ask me, are not strictly neces...

    Out of curiosity knowing not every Kickstarter can be a Colville or 7th sea, but when you see 100-200 backers and that successfully funds a book, is the designers main goal tomshare his creation, make a little cash, foot wet in publishing, etc? I'm kind of amazed to things considered to be successfully funded with 100-200 people...just odd to me is all and just asking. My ex wife 15 years ago just wanted to get a book of poems printed as bucket list thing so I'm just curious of the motivation with such low numbers. Speaking to my project in particular (The Book of Many Things), We've already created over half the content before even coming to Kickstarter, so we are using that medium as more of a marketing forum to reach players who may not follow other websites/social media where we are. Of the 146 backers we have as of this reply, about 70% of them hadn't heard of the book before I posted the campaign. Now, however, the word is getting out, and with our last 5 days closing in, more people will ...

    The C7 site has the pdf releasing in June with the book in July...home stretch to seeing it in some form. From Facebook, 3 days ago, re PDF publish date: "Cubicle 7 Entertainment: We're working on it Corey, if it isn't June it shouldn't be far into July. We'll keep you posted on progress here. The previews will lead up to the retail launch though, so it's not just about the PDF release"

For 99% of those working in the RPG industry, itís not a niche which will make you rich. Outliers aside, you can almost always make more money doing something other than publishing RPG books. A lot of people do it because they love it, not because itís a career optimal choice.

Speaking for Mithrilpunk Press here cannot speak for others. Our first project funded for just about 9000, with 116 backers. That amount basically covered the costs of that project and kept the lights on for our very small part time company. We did it primarily because we always wanted to publish something for our favorite RPG. We did it for experience, and for fun. While we would love to go Monte Cook, Colville, Angry GM big and maybe quit our days jobs, for us money isnít t...

  • 06:36 PM - Caliburn101 quoted EthanSental in post Skill Feats In Pathfinder 2
    Magical spell and ability skill don't really match up in my eyes as being the same. I'll pass on this edition until it comes out and see what the playtest molds this crud into. Yes - it's a pass for me and everyone I know in my two game groups, which it wasn't until this last release came out. Let's hope Paizo see some sense and drop this. Otherwise they are going to lose a lot of customers. If D&D was a superhero game, then this would be fine... but it's not, and the idea that a Fighter in full plate could knock a non-winged titanic boss monster off a mountain top, fall with him and after the massive HP-laden monster was pavement pizza, just stand up without a single HP damage and walk away is ridiculous.

    Does it mean the possible other settings are fair game for other poeple to use on the DMguild? Or do they have to state it's not fair game since I wasn't not paying attention when Ravenloft was added with CoS? Maybe. When Curse of Strahd was released, Ravenloft was added to the Guild. They might be doing something similar here. I suspect we're getting introductory adventures, to introduce newer players to the settings' tropes and concepts along with starter regions and then opening up those worlds to Guild expansion.

    I find it interesting that it seems for every 1 that posts various 5e products aren't for them, apparently 10 people buy it anyway since the sales for the products are top sellers. Enough previous gamers and many new gamers are having fun with what they are creating. Perkins has been doing great as the story line creator in my book and watching him on Lore You Should Know shows he cares about the material. Props Chris!I apologize that I had the audacity to voice either disinterest or displeasure at this product.

    Can't earn it back if it never hits the dmsguild :). Here's hoping it happens before people forget it existed! I'm hoping it does sell well enough to intice you all to do it again. Great point. By now--at least in the groups I frequent--everyone that's wanted to play through it pretty much has. I don't think anyone I know plans on buying it at this point. Hopefully the late timing is taken into consideration, if the sales are truly the main factor as to whether it'll be done again. (On the other hand, maybe the idea of an in-crowd-only adventure book will just be swapped for something less exclusionary, which could be cool).

    Never read any previous editions of it, might have to check it out as well. Key setting elements: Basically Early Renaissance Europe (Think late Holy Roman Empire) with fantasy races added. Much social inequality Xenophobia is rampant Many names are either bad puns, either in German or in faux-German Magic is dangerous and drives people insane Unlicensed use of magic is punishable by death. Usually, the accused doesn't survive to the trial. Mob justice includes lynchings and burnings. Mechanically: 1E: lots of attributes, some 1-10, 1x 1+, and most 1-100. Skills boolean. Tasks 1d100 for attribute or less; Some require a skill to attempt, others gain a +10 or +20 for the skill. 2E: reduced attribute list, atts 1-100 except W and MP, which are 1+ and 0+. Skills are un-, base, +10, +20. Tasks are rolled on 1d100 for under attribute+skill mod (unskilled is vs 1/2 attribute). Both 1E and 2E presuppose use of a grid or minis on table, but are not so grid reliant as to make ...
