  1. To be honest, I've mostly avoided the KS page since - after seeing some of the behaviour there. While I was disappointed in the campaign, I think I tried to be constructive about my thoughts. I thought Fred Henry responded to the situation with humility and grace... but some of the commentary was just brutal. Along with countless others, I voted for Red Nails. There was some discussion about "Zamora, City of Thieves" material back then too, which I'd love. What I said then... "I do like the idea of a "City of Thieves" type expansion but, for the sense of scale of a portion of a city, I can't help but feel that you'd need at least 1.5 of the regular sized boards.<other stuff in between> More maps. How about this... using one full sized board, one half sized board.Side 1: City map boards that adjoin one another, perhaps with the edge as an alley to make it flexible which side the half board joins on (yeah, I have a large table 😉)Side 2: A house and grounds full size map (house, small surrounding garden, wall on the edges of the board) with a roof/smaller upper floor half map, like the Khitai arrangement? (Could be used for scenarios like a variant on the "Rogues in the House" story?)" This next one is going to be a smaller scale kickstarter campaign, from what I have read. I'm not sure what the timeframe allows them to pull out of their hat but I can't wait to see Matt John's cooperative mode materials... and a chance to get that elusive dragon!!! I'd like to see them get through this campaign, then later a proper "Adventure Mode" campaign that either: a) serves as a gateway to a subsequent BtM campaign (that adopts the approach of Second Life boxes - use the minis we have), or b) introduces BtM then and there, using the AM content with minimal additional materials.
  2. Footballzs, you only get that freebie with a leader or bat pledge... not with a Legacy Box. So far I’m pretty disappointed in most of what they’re showing on the KS draft page. I had high hopes after initially hearing about what they were wanting to do with BtM, but the campaign - so far - isn’t even offering “Second Life” box upgrade route for people who already own Conan to progress to the BtM versus system. They really are expecting you to either buy their new boxes (as only getting a Bat or Leader pledge gives you the discounts they are offering to return backers) or to get boxes without minis (paper-only boxes being discussed), which leaves you having to substitute for new minis and for all the minis you’ll be short of. The price for the Adventure Mode content legacy box also *appears* disproportionately high compared to the content being offered in the new BtM Conan “Universe” boxes. Edit: They’ve updated the draft. Legacy pledges now get the early bird too. Still hoping for a Second Life update.
  3. Forums here seem pretty dead, but it looks like this isn’t the campaign for us to obtain the few missing items... unless they also plan on offering those particular items in the pledge manager.
  4. Okay, now that "CONAN IS BACK" (he never left at my house), can we recommence the rampant speculation? 😉 Seriously Monolith - no date, no info... you teasers!!! 😁
  5. I wish there had been at least some copies of this shipped to an Asian hub. Was there really not enough demand anticipated to make some quantity available to the region?
  6. I never saw that Monolith mention. Do you have a source - and are you sure you're not talking about Asmodee? Shame. (EDIT: This post from Erwan... Looks good for the Dragon and Black Ones in 2019) I would have thought that, because the moulds already exist, if these items were in the pledge manager that they could just more or less perfectly manage the quantities produced (if the agreement with Asmodee doesn't preclude it). From what I hear, a whole lot of people didn't get these things because they expected to be able to get them at retail. Perhaps there's still that pent up demand? I agree that there was a whole lot of empty space in those boxes. I'm certainly not against plain packaging for these small add-ons, myself. I'd be loath to purchase the lot just to obtain the one that I'm missing, given that I'm happily (well, satisfactorily) substituting another mini for the dragon now. I guess we'll see 🙂
  7. Well, I voted for Red Nails and Black Kingdoms expansions. I do like the idea of a "City of Thieves" type expansion but, for the sense of scale of a portion of a city, I can't help but feel that you'd need at least 1.5 of the regular sized boards. I'm curious as to what they might adapt from the Batman KS - limiting the number of gems that the OL can spend on certain actions, for example? I didn't back the original KS (wasn't on KS at the time), backed Book of Set and was able to get a King Pledge. Got *everything* bar the Dragon aftermarket at very reasonable prices. I'd like to see reprints of the items that never made it to retail (e.g. the Dragon, the Black Ones). Personally, I'm not against seeing the KS exclusives being offered again in the next KS campaign for others to enjoy the game and additional scenarios to their fullest. If there was a real objection to that then, yes, the tile graphics have been made available in various ways and so the enthusiastic among us can print them, use them on spare foreign language or blank tiles and substitute minis, but hey... are the only people who would object those selling them for unconscionable prices? More maps. How about this... using one full sized board, one half sized board. Side 1: City map boards that adjoin one another, perhaps with the edge as an alley to make it flexible which side the half board joins on (yeah, I have a large table 😉) Side 2: A house and grounds full size map (house, small surrounding garden, wall on the edges of the board) with a roof/smaller upper floor half map, like the Khitai arrangement? (Could be used for scenarios like a variant on the "Rogues in the House" story?)
  8. I wasn't an original Conan backer (late to KS), but managed to get one of the King's Pledges that was available in the AU region from the Book of Set campaign. Since then I've been able to get everything from the original campaign except for the dragon at a reasonable price. In the meantime I can substitute another miniature (MB:P's hydra) and I've printed the card faces (thanks, the-overlord.net 🙂) and stuck them to a surplus French card for playing at present. I imagine there are quite a few people that held off on getting some of the components that were intended to hit retail and so I'm also hoping these are offered during the Conan 2019 KS.
  9. Very glad I didn't miss this. I just managed to get everything but the dragon (here's hoping that sees a reprint in next year's KS campaign) aftermarket and was updating my collection on BGG. There I saw a second compendium and immediately rushed back over here. I'd gotten the first compendium (from a different account here - to which I can't seem to recover the password but I may as well have an account here consistent with my KS account anyway) and hadn't seen anything about further compendiums. All good!
