    Rogues in the Hood

    @Matt John S!!!! I just listened to the first episode of the Podcast ‘Rogues in the House’, and only at the end did I realize that our own Matt John was one of the contributing voices. I thoroughly enjoyed the Podcast and I highly recommend it to anyone that is a fan of Sword & Sorcery in all it’s varied forms. Great job Matt! I’ll be checking out all the other episodes and I hope it continues for a good long run.

    @Matt John S, just looked at the description of the new episode. Sounds like a hoot, will give a listen later today. Curious to hear your Ahnuld...

    Nemesis: this ain’t E.T.!

    Making some headway on getting Nemesis painted up. I’m mulling over paint schemes for the other alien types. The Queen and the Breeders will have a bit more color I think. 🤔 Work in progress shots here, still need to attend to the bases.

    Nemesis: this ain’t E.T.!

    @Ken, we actually just got the game to the table last weekend for the first time. Loved it. So thematic and cinematic. I have plans to build a tricked out game board next, I’ll be sure to post pics when I finish building it.

    Fantastic! I always say that I paint for the game table, not a display case. But this kind of work i would call painting for a freakin’ museum... Huzzah!
  6. Group shot of all the Hero minis I had painted at that point. I think it’s all of them except the ones from the Big Box Expansions....

    Hyborian Heroes... Assemble!!!

    Umm... Somehow he missed the call to assemble, lol. Honestly, all the pics I’ve posted here have been quick iPhone snaps without much attention paid to composition or lighting. I really do plan to get around to taking pics with one of my better cameras and spending some time on making more artful shots. That always seems to get lost in the shuffle with so many other minis to paint and the fact that the finished minis only get out of the box on game nights. I’ll add an old WIP pic of N’Gora to make up for it...

    Compendium 2En & 3EN.

    Good work @garbetsp, much appreciated. By Crom (slams a dagger into the table) we want the Compendiums in English! Hopefully Monolith can make this happen for us loyal fans.

    Conan models work in progress

    Keep at it @rhogg27184! Lots of good work you’ve done. It felt good when I finally polished off painting all my Conan stuff. I thought I was done at one point, but then realized I had doors and the Corinthian peasants to do. I downed a big mug of ale when I got them all off the painting table... Now that I have Nemesis done, Mythic Battles: Pantheon is staring me in the face. 😬

    Thought I’d show the final logo here, and again encourage everyone to give a listen.
  11. A little touch up needed, but can’t wait to get him on the table this week!!

    Tales of the North

    Wow!... I’m blown away by the efforts the community is making with home-brewed scenarios. In fact, calling them home-brewed is misleading. It might be accurate, but honestly, most of the scenarios showing up here on The Overlord are as good, or better, than any ‘official’ scenario. So far the ones I’ve tried out and studied are balanced and, most importantly, they have very concise and detailed rules. One of the only complaints I’ve had about some of the ‘official’ scenarios is in the details. There have been a number of scenarios that led to BIG rule questions in my group, which are simply not answered in the descriptions. Great job addressing all of the possible questions that could arise while playing these awesomely fun scenarios!!!

    Show your Zelata!

    Great work @The Captain!
  15. Another rapid-fire paint job. Along with the Black Dragons, and the Black Ones, I finished 25 minis in 2 evenings. If I can keep at it, I might have my King Pledge and all the Add-Ons done soon. Then I can finally start on the 3 big expansions...
  16. Nice work @garbetsp! I TOTALLY agree that the wolf minis are very very plain, even lackluster. Compare them to the Foo Dogs, or Slasher to see what a scary looking wolf could look like. Hell, even with their soft details, the Hyenas are way better than these wolves. I might eventually get into basing my minis when I get cranking on Mythic Battles, but I generally just go black with the bases. Something about bases not matching all the possible game boards kind of bugs me. Also, I'm speed painting to get the minis onto my game table, so I've just not played around with bases yet. Your work here is inspiring me to give it a go. 😃

    Sounds great! I’ll send you a message @Matt John S, let’s get connected via email and hash out the details. I have a few tweaks to the logo in mind yet, and I’d love to incorporate any feedback your team has.

    Hey @Matt John S, Had a few minutes to spare at work and whipped up a slightly more splashy logo for your podcast. Let me know if you guys would have any interest in it...

    Compendium 2En & 3EN.

    I know I’d certainly love to get Compendium 2 in English. I think there are a few factors at play here. Monolith is centered in the French gaming community, which is fairly insular. They are more than happy to sell games to anyone, but they are definitely catering primarily to French gamers in many ways. The French version of The Overlord site is very very active. This English site, is not very active at all in comparison (which is a bummer). I sometimes feel like this whole site exists just so that about 20 of us die hard English language fans can communicate with each other... Another factor may very well be the issues Monolith ran into with shipping the previous Compendiums worldwide. They got a lot of hate and spite from a handful of malcontents who were (understandably) pissed off when they didn’t get their copies of the first Compendium - due to cheap and spotty shipping methods. Some people even called them cheaters and thieves! Yet another issue, is the licensing beef that Monolith has run into with Cabinet regarding Conan, and the resulting question about when (and if) Monolith will ever provide new Conan material via KickStarter. Add all that to the fact that Monolith is a business, and needs to generate revenue to stay viable. Hence, their focus on other games. I think that an English translation of Compendium 2 is probably number 286 on their to-do list...

    Show your Conan!

    He looks great @garbetsp! As to your query, ALWAYS put blood on Conan’s axe!... always. 😈
  23. I’m working to get the 6 starting heroes from Gloomhaven painted up so I can get that beast of a game to the table. It is interesting to tackle some High-Fantasy minis after the hundreds of Low-Fantasy minis I’ve painted for Conan. As per my usual MO, I’m trying to follow the game art in my color selections. It isn’t easy with this game though, since the game art has so many lighting effects and some fairly unusual color schemes going on. I’m fairly happy with them; not destined for a display case, but good enough for my game table!
