  1. I agree that the BtM campaign got way too negative and caustic. I wasn’t thrilled about the campaign, but I can’t believe how badly it was received overall. It was obviously wise to cancel and make a new plan. Glad that Matt John S will be guiding the ship now. As for what would be nice to see; I think we needed a good ancient temple board, and it looks like we will get that in the new Adventure Mode KS campaign next month. A jungle setting and a cramped Western city street would be good as well. As for minis, wrapping up the major characters from the REH stories would be appropriate. However, to get the most out of the game I think we really need more scenarios that employ the underutilized minis that already exist. However, as they need to make any new material accessible to backers that only have the retail game, I don’t expect it to happen. On a side note, as a bit of a collector and completionist myself, I understand why people want to track down the hard to find items like the Black Ones and the Dragon. But I have to say, the Dragon design is really kind of lame, and the one official scenario that has the Dragon is fairly underwhelming. Same goes for the Sabretooth tiger. He’s badly underpowered. I’m still glad that I went all-in on the original campaign. We’ve played the game a lot, and I’ve had tons of fun getting it all painted. I’m starting to build more scenery for the game boards too. One thing I’d really love to see, would be plastic dashboards that would hold the hero sheets and keep the gems organized. I’ll be curious to see what they come up with.
  2. Sadly, no. The next step is assembling and painting the large ships, and I really want to get an airbrush so I can get good gradients on the sails. I moved back over to getting more Mythic Battles minis done. Also, received the terrain and stretch goals for Nemesis, so I’ve been picking away at those.
  3. It’s a huge bummer to watch it unfold. Tragic really. This game (Conan) means a lot to me. My gaming group has had hundreds of hours of fantastic fun playing it. I’ve had countless hours of fun painting it and crafting terrain for it. In many ways it is everything I want from a board game. My heart actually breaks a little for Fred Henry. I’ve read that he’s literally mortgaged his house to keep Monolith afloat. Despite bringing in millions of dollars through the various KS campaigns, only the 2nd Batman Campaign managed to be profitable. He clearly cares deeply about the games. People accusing Monolith of staging a ‘cash grab’ with the current campaign have no idea what goes into bringing a complex, miniature and paper/cardboard component-heavy game to market. Everyone must be paid; artists, designers, office staff, Chinese manufacturers, etc... It’s just an absurd fantasy to think that any company which manages to bring in a couple million dollars on a KS campaign is laughing all the way to the bank and kicking it on a tropical island. I do think that Beyond the Monolith was too ambitious, too complex and confusing for a KS campaign, and not actually what the existing fan base really wanted from the followup Conan KSer. I know that I really can’t get excited about another 1v1 skirmish game. Near as I can tell, we have our own Matt John S to thank for making sure that some new ‘Adventure Mode’ material even made it into the campaign. If funds were no issue, I’d throw a ton of money at the them ASAP. But, with a new little Barbarian on the way, I need to be a little more conscious of how I spend my discretionary money. I’ll go in for the Legacy Box and Tome of Skelos. But... I agree... I’m not confident this will fund. Tragically, if it doesn’t, it’s been made clear that Monolith might very well close it’s doors for good. By Crom, it’s a woeful situation.
  4. Gotta have some blood on the God of War, right?
  5. I can’t say for sure, but it’s possible that Monolith will offer reprints of MB: Pantheon when they launch their next Mythic Battles Kickstarter campaign. That campaign will be for the follow up title, MB: Ragnarok, which will be essentially the same game, but highlighting Norse mythology instead of Greek. I believe that Kickstarter Campaign will be In June of 2020... @Matt John S might have more info?
  6. After he gets some Dulcote varnish spray I do plan to top coat him with some Ardcote to give him a wet look... Paint job is not a showstopper, but he’s table ready for sure!
  7. Busy on the road for work, so my painting has really slowed down. Got back into it with the 4 Detective miniatures from the excellent game ‘Detective: City of Angels’. They were pretty easy, so knocked them out quick. Now back to a couple Mythic Battles minis for a bit before moving back to Dreadfleet. Was excited to tackle Tityos, as he’s a cool and unique sculpt. Gotta admit, he was more challenging than I anticipated. Almost scrapped the paint job and stripped him back to plastic to start over, but just kept at it and finally got it to a place that I’m okay with.
  8. Very nice work @Ken! Love the color choices. If I recall, Khemsa was among the last of the stretch goal minis I painted, quite awhile back. I’ll be curious to see your home-brewed hero sheet and scenario if you wind up sharing them here.
  9. Moving so slow these days with regards to painting minis. House renovation ALMOST done. So hopefully back to normal soon. Anyways, got the last of the Dreadfleet ephemera done: a marker which indicates wind direction, or if flipped, indicates the arrival of the Maelstrom!... Actually not 100% sure what that means in terms of gameplay as I’ve not played this game yet, but I like the sound of it!
  10. The other beasties! The Leech Wrym, and the the Sea Giant!
  11. Sea beastie for Dreadfleet completed: Behold the Bone Hydra!
