    The Forces of Evil throwing a Hissy Fit.

    Have to see the Horde, but I'm very much hoping to go all in on this.

    Rather makes me wish I knew how to paint miniatures.

    Today's Daily Reveal was a Holiday Scenario. Tomorrow might be more containers, I guess? Lol

    I'm very glad snake men were today, that all but 100% guarantees a horde expansion. And there's only a small handful of figures left as well to wrap up the vintage motu collection. Of course. There will always be desires of what we didn't get.
    Well... I will say that the dice in this game are fairly specific. You can't just open your bag of dice and grab a handful of extra and go. So extra dice could be pretty nice.


    That said, my current hobby is molding and casting resin dice myself... so honestly, I'll pass on them and just make some more myself

    Don't get me wrong, I'm grabbing a dice set because sharing dice among 5 people can become a nuisance, but my point was the extra dice set is by no means additional unique game content, nor any of the other items I mentioned. People looking to save money can cut out
    75 for the tower by using the 2D cardboard
    60 for the terrain by using the 2D cardboard
    35 for the play mat by using the cardboard game board
    12 for the dice by sharing the base set among friends.

    That's $182 ($165 I think thr 220 bundle has a $15 savings) And honestly if it came down to it, and I had to choose between the 3 (we all know the Horde is coming) $50 themed character/scenario expansions or the upgraded 3D items, I'd choose the 3 character theme sets every time... because it's actual game content...

    But I'm getting it all... because I have a problem when it comes to this property... as do many of us here! LOL

    Man, I hope so.

    Normally I don't even recognise what you guys describe in the tease, but I can "see" the Battle Ram this time too!

    You know, I hadn't painted minis since I was a kid and been wanting to get back into it for the longest time. When the pandemic started and I was home a lot more, I decided to jump in.

    Bought a couple paint sets online (not too much, just some starters), and some brushes, watched a few beginner tutorials, and after a few test/training attempts, I really managed to do some surprisingly nice paint jobs. Dry brushing, washes, all that stuff is actually a lot easier to do than I thought. Plus I've found painting to be a really relaxing, and creatively rewarding activity.

    You should totally give it a shot. Worst case scenario, you can strip paint off or paint over mistakes.

    Iíve never done this for a game before, does the $220 pledge come with Plastic Grayskull Pack. Iím confused why it asks my to add it to my pledge. Bad enough Iím in for both expansions and maybe the mat.

    Pretty sure the next daily reveal is Cringer. He has his head down with paws on top of his head hiding.

    Is it just me, or would Kobra Khan have made more sense as a stretch goal for the core box, and Lady Slither included the Snake Men expansion?

    I would be so up for an expansion that has pre-painted figures! C'mon CMON take my money

    I'm so far beyond wanting to paint these myself.

    Hmm, good advice. Last time I painted one was Darkfyre from Dragon Strike (made him black with red claws.) The only real constraint would be finding the time.��. But it might definitely be worth looking up some tutorials on YouTube. Any you'd recommend?

    Yes, it comes with the $220.
    Its there if you want to add another.

    On the last day they will likely have 2 'all in' pledges - one that gets you all the gameplay related add ons and one that adds everything (gameplay and cosmetic) so if the whole thing is doing your head in wait for those if you want most stuff.

    Like most NPCs she's probably a daily reveal.


    For that matter the more I think of her, the more I don't think there's room for her in the game. The Castle is 3D piece to 'conquer'... There's no room 'inside' the castle to play, and she can't leave the castle... So i'm not even sure what the point of her would be in an outdoor skirmish type game like this.


    Does make me wonder if they'll bring in the two birds? I used to love those toys as a kid. Well... Only had Zoar, but had him 2 or 3 times...

    Possibly, but I take back my previous guess. I totally think it's Cringer cowering after looking at his NPC token.

    It's going to be cringer. There's a part of the lower left where you can make out what looks like the end of his curled tail. But a man can dream about battle ram dangit! Haha

    It IS Cringer! He looks fantastic! Tomorrow MIGHT be Man-At-Arms with a mace? That's what I see in the picture, but I'm usually wrong on these.

    Could be Man-At-arms- but I think it's Flying Fists He-man. Shield on left arm, rotating boulder weapon in the right hand.

    With so many vintage figures still to be revealed, I'd be disappointed if it was another version of Man-At-arms

    Honestly my interest was piqued watching some of the mini painting episodes Critical Role had on their channel and their old Geek & Sundry channel. Then I literally just started searching for painting tutorials for beginners and there were just so many good ones I couldn't even narrow it down. A lot of good channels break down tutorials into sections like pre-work and using a primer on the figures, then ways to layer your colors, using washes and drybrushing. Seriously, just searching for tutorials for beginners will give you so many options, just grab one (especially any that walk you through in parts so they don't throw it all at you at once) and go for it. It's a lot of fun.
