    I guess my main concern is what paints to use. I would rather not have to buy a whole line of expensive paints for this, especially if this game will cost $200+ for the complete set. I have a ton of oil and acrylic fine art paints already, but I don't know if they are appropriate. I guess I really should just buy a figurine and try it out and see.
    The vast majority of paints used for miniatures is Acrylic paint. If you already have a ton of them, you should be fine. Just get some small brushes and go to town. 'Miniature' Paints come in if different companies and some are thinner for airbrushes and stuff... but at it's core, they're all Acrylic Paint.

    When i started, I was using the folkart acrylic craft paint for like $ .89 each... in fact for some bigger projects I still use them.

    whew! Thanks for that info. I have tons of acrylics already, so that's good news. I just bought a cheapie brand of Payne's Gray yesterday for a big project. Sometimes that cheap stuff works the best.

    There was a new LIVE video from CMON's MOTU guys again. I didn't see most of it (I didn't know about it), but they confirmed Castle Grayskull comes with ACCESSORIES!!! The same ones from the 80's! They also released a new, EPIC trailer for the Kickstarter. You can see the Grayskull accessories at the end.


    Edit: Assault on Castle Grayskull! Skelecons! Randor's Royal Guards!

    I didn't get to watch it yet, but I did scroll to the end the see the accessories. Wow, that's pretty nifty that they included them. That's something!

    No spacesuit?... Wonder if it's a character in a supplement...
    My friend told me to stop quoting the Monkees. I thought she was joking. But then I saw her face.

    I just watched the FULL Facebook Livestream and no mention of Spacesuit.

    EDIT:

    From the Facebook Livestream:

    - No movie or NA He-Man stuff
    - Core game mechanics same as prototype from playthroughs, but they have worked at rebalancing some stuff (ex. Merman was WAY over powered, but they're pretty happy with how they re-worked him).
    - Assault on Castle Grayskull expansion with Skelecons and King Randor's Royal Guard. All new Castle Defense mode. Gain advantages with new skills. Upgrade your forces. Complete tactical objectives. New 2D overlay piece of Castle Grayskull.
    -A.O.G: protect or attack Castle game play. The original CG accessories help either attack or defend the Castle.
    - Can play as stopping Skeletor from taking over Grayskull, He-Man reclaiming it from Skeletor, etc.
    - Offered as Standard version (2D) Deluxe has the plastic Castle and Weapons.
    - Plastic Castle Grayskull is properly scaled to the miniatures.
    - Solid plastic Castle, only Jawbridge opens. You CANNOT put figures inside, just on the Jawbridge/opening.
    - No campaign play. They tried it, but felt it was taking away from the direction they wanted for this game. They didn't find it optimal. Will not include campaign play even if it's highly requested. They were very detailed with their explanation why in the video.
    - You can do Good vs Evil, Faction OR mix and match (ex. He-Man teaming up with Skeletor).
    - Mentions Teela in a magical team (Teela, Orko, Evil-Lyn) then goes on to explain the Core Box Teela isn't magic focused. That's a HEAVY hint at another Teela figure. He does mention Teela and Sorceress powers...
    - Game Cap for Core Box and all Expansions: 1-5 players.
    - Certain characters they made (unrevealed) they had some difficulty with because there is not a lot of information on them.
    - Some of his favourite moments is when you start to incorporate stink clouds in the game - HEAVY hint of Stinkor.

    Everything sounds great. I'm really looking forward to getting this thing backed and seeing the stretch goals. I'm really hoping for a Snake Men expansion.

    The Kickstarter for this is supposed to launch today, but no word about it yet has been posted on the official CMON website, and nothing turns up either on a Google search for “Kickstarter Clash for Eternia” nor searching within the Kickstarter site itself. The project page on Kickstarter should have been up already since days ago. Whats is going on? Has this project been canceled due to poor reviews?

    Definitely! And with some Pre-Eternian characters. And some POP! A little bummed they said no New Adventures. Would of liked a couple characters from there. I am excited for the stretch goal as the Marvel United X Men stretch goals were pretty eclectic and diverse. Can’t wait to drool over all the updates with my son.

    It's easily going to reach its goal on day one. Very cool.

    I haven't backed it yet. I'm not sure if the plastic Grayskull is worth the additional cost.

    I'm hoping we're funded in less than half an hour.

    If it's anything like other CMON Kickstarters they'll be adding Stretch Goals to lessen to sting of the cost.

    Edit: 28 minutes, fully funded. We have the power!

    Our second Stretch Goal is a plastic controller dashboard upgrade. Not as exciting as a new character, but I'll take it. This one is 260K.
