  1. Don't worry, that's kind of the point of that guy in that particular scenario. The best tactic is always if you don't stand a realistic chance of killing something then keep running!
  2. 1. Yep, recovered fully unless directed otherwise (usually by the scenario text). For example. if it says take 1 permanent trauma and your investigator would normally start with 6 Sanity, at the start of the next scenario they begin with 1 horror and just 5 Sanity. The scenario log will help you track all that because it does stack between scenarios. 2. Yep, only Hunters move location. Other enemies stay static waiting for someone to enter. 3. Unless directed by their card or an event, Hunters only move one location per enemy phase to try and reach an investigator. Off shoot rule from this is they have to take the shortest route to do that. So if there's two ways to a 'gators location, one taking hops across four locations and another across three, the Hunter has to makes its way using the three location route. It can turn into a horrific / comedic chase across locations, but some things allow you to carry out extra actions like additional 'gator movement, so you can some times get a little bit further ahead.
  3. I'm currently using some of them as test models but if I keep up at this rate I'll have a crazy surplus - will let you know as Mortal Realms is more up my street!
  4. I don't even play 40k and thanks to Warhammer Imperium mag I appear to be amassing a collection of Necrons and Space Marines
  5. Amazing dice - those marble and the red ones are lovely. I love me some clicky-clacky rocks. This a crap photo of my current temp dice jar (till I can find something more decorative that I like). There's a load others, but they're just in storage in plastic bags at the moment. Then I have my Elder Dice which satisfy my cosmic horror urges (this is an old pic, there's more now!) And then there's my rag tag assortment from loads of old games. I think there's some Advanced Heroquest dice in there, a lot of chunky old style Games Workshop dice and the real shabby looking in the bottom right are actually from my brother's days of playing 1st edition D&D so they're a bit older than me!
  6. Ooo, lots of cool stuff from FFG announced at Gen-Con if you're into any of their lines. - first expansion teased for the new Descent - new Arkham Horror LCG standalone plus all the old content getting re-released in the new boxed format (I'm going to be dull enough to spend £50 a cycle just for a box to store stuff in aren't I? ) - LOTR card game's getting a refresh (oh God no, this'll temp me to try the game - my wallet!!! ) - Sinister Six is the next big box for Marvel Champions (I don't care the price, give it to meeeeeeeeeee!!!!!! ) https://www.fantasyflightgames.com/en/news/2021/9/15/in-flight-2021/
  7. Might be a bit soon to ask, but would love to know what you think of these (been eyeing up Doomsday Countdown as it's solo-able).
  8. Not my pic, but this look is really striking and I'm thinking I'd like to replicate it. Seems simply on the face of it, but I'm wondering about the depth of shading there. I'm thinking black base coat, off white dry brush and then...? Something like nuln oil to blend it all together, followed by a highlight of the off white? Anyone think of an easier / alternative way?
  9. Dirty great big grin all over my face watching that. Media blackout from me too - not long to go and that's done enough to convince me that I need to see this.
  10. The one I saw was by BoardGameCo and I found myself scrubbing through the video out of boredom. From what they showed it doesn't look to be something I'd enjoy (the mini's are still great tho). I know there was a lot of misgivings about CMON's Marvel United before it was delivered, people saying it looked too easy when it turns out it's actually challenging on times and a lot of fun. So perhaps it's another case of deceptive first appearances? That said I don't think I fancy shelling out around £100 for a basic pledge to try and find out.
  11. Seems it's an original character created for the game called `The Hunter` There was talk of the game allowing you to create your own unique character so it could be intended to represent that, or they just decided to take liberties and give Lilith a new daughter (she's had so many offspring and I'm not totally familiar with the lore, so it could be an obscure existing character I guess.).
  12. Needs more Moon Knight. If we don't get him, and they shoe horn in Cap and Iron Man just to have some bankable characters, I'll have a little nerd pout. But then cave in and buy it anyway cos playing something Dr Strange-centric is a dream come true. edit: Oh wait, its Suns not Sons. Still the same theme I guess but I guess.
  13. This is a long shot but thought I'd ask here before digging into the perils of Ebay - did anyone back the CMON Bloodborne boardgame and get any of the Kickstarter exclusives they'd be happy to let go for a decent price? Never mind, I'm weak with no willpower and went gadding about the dark halls of Ebay. It's a horrible feeling to be pleased that I got what I wanted, but to feel so hellishly unclean at the same time.
  14. Yeah, I'm out too. The gameplay videos haven't sold me on it, plus I've a tonne of other stuff to play which will take precedence. Archon appear to have been getting some grief for not delivering Wolfenstein on time. Given the state of shipping and production globally, a delay's not surprising (hell, 90% of the stuff I've backed has been delayed well in to next year). But quickly reading around it's hard to tell if it's just people being loud, obnoxious Internet brats or if Archon really have been bad in communicating with backers. All things combined it's a hard pass from me.
  15. I've become sort of interested in it as some the the paid previews this last week grabbed my attention. Probably off the back of the new Netflix series too. I'm following and will need to decide closer to the end of the campaign.
  16. His default position seems to be it isn't realistic, all against the context of painting giant space men and monsters. Probably not the best starting point for basing an argument really.
  17. Over a year later (where did that time go?!) and I've just finished my second stab of Alone Against the Flames, my first attempt being Friday. What a neat way of mixing a Choose Your Own Adventure outing with an introduction to 7th Edition. No spoilers, but amazingly for anything Cthulhu related I managed to survive the adventure first attempt by totally lucking out, landing an almost impossible roll of smack on 5 with a D100 to pass a Fast Talk check Second attempt tonight, met a grizzly fate. Fudged it from that point rather than start directly over and managed to escape again on some very lucky rolls. I've got Alone Against the Dark here which looks like it up's the ante in terms of 7th Edition complexity - can't wait to give it a go!
  18. CMON's latest action with the Marvel United Kickstarter is a bit... disconcerting... https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/marvel-united-x-men/posts/3238975 With little explanation they just wholesale cancelled orders and started refunding anyone living in Norway (at the moment it's unclear how that applies to others they've run recently like the Wild West Zombicide). No real explanation as to why, save for some vague reference to a recent law change. People in the comments say it's nonsense and, aside from a rule change at the start of the year, there's been nothing relevant (and apparently even that can be resolved by adding peoples Social Security numbers to parcels). No indication of it being anything wider than that yet, but I can't help but hear the faint echoes of "a Norway style arrangement with the EU" Brexit-mantra in the back of my head...
  19. Gamefound is a Kickstarter alternative - they're two separate sites. Although to confuse you even more, some companies shift over to Gamefound after a Kickstarter campaign ends, using it as a pledge manager. I think they do it as the tools to manage pledges are better on Gamefound than on Kickstarter. The MOTU products on Gamefound and Kickstarter will be two different things - the one on Kickstarter is being done by CMON, the one on Gamefound is by Archon. I haven't been following that close, but the Archon one's been getting a lot of flak already because they started selling main characters exclusively through their own web-store some months ago and are already out of stock. Apparently those models won't be included in the full release, but who knows if that means the exact same model of the character, or just a different more standard one will be included. One of the exclusives was He-Man and you can't have a He-Man game without him, so I'd imagine it might be the Internet getting it's pants in a bunch ahead of time. But the really bad news is that CMON have said that thanks to Mattel's usual baffling antics when it comes to their licenses, their game won't be making it to the UK and Europe. That means unless you want to jump through real hoops to get it, the Archeon Gamefound one will be the only one available to you.
  20. I'm a regualr user of both those Vallejo paints and heavily using the Gunmetal as a stand in for Citadel's Leadbelcher these days. I don't use a wet pallet but I know that it's a swine to work with if you don't add some water to thin it - it'll clump the brush and gum up your model in next to no time. I usually add a drop of Gunmetal on a pallet and then the smallest drop of water you can managed out of a dropper bottle, yet it still ends up runny. I add a tiny bit more Gunmetal and then it usually mixes to a good enough consistency to brush on without being just silvery water. Even then it can still be a bit streaky and will struggle over a lighter base coat, but with a bit of patience and care it comes out good. I'd say it's definitely on the higher end of learning curves for a paint though!
  21. Going back to this, I just picked up some Mayday Premium sleeves for the actual Tarot cards that come with the new Arkham Horror Return to the Circle Undone. I'm really pleased with them - not as thick as Dragon Shields, but not far off and still very robust at a fraction of the cost. Thanks to everyone who recommended them, I'll be using these from now on.
  22. Cheers, they're really fun to paint and getting the armour the right shade was a lot of fun (it's just Contrast over a Vallejo Leadbelcher equivalent that I already owned). In fact, apart from the metal undercoat's, the rest is all Contrast. I got them second hand on a whim, but the Blightkings have been just the thing I needed as the Cursed City zombies broke me a little. Cool sculpts but I just wasn't feeling painting them and they haven't come out like I wanted. Stripping back the previous owners paint job on the King's (thick Zhandri Dust spray) and rebasing them was almost therapeutic.
