  1. House Rules - Awareness & 5th Player

    Woah woah wait...what? Really? Sonofa... *sigh*. This rulebook, in all honesty, is really shit-ily written lol. The layout and when they give you what information sucks. I read through the things twice and am still just now hearing these things? Urg. On the plus side: that's good to hear! Thank you!
  2. House Rules - Awareness & 5th Player

    Thanks guys. Guess I was confusing the two tokens. Although, even that being said...since currently, all enemies either attack the person with the aggro token or the closest enemy (which players will share since they start on the same starting space of an encounter, I think even then there are going to be times where there's just no avoiding getting wailed on in the first turn lol.
  3. House Rules - Awareness & 5th Player

    EH?! Really? I would have sworn it said that the player who went last previously starts the next encounter??
  4. House Rules - Awareness & 5th Player

    Oh thank God someone else agrees with me about the monsters always going first lol. Yes, great idea which I will be adopting from now on. That rule as-is sucks monkeyballs. Who the heck thought that was a good idea? It is neither realistic nor matches the videogame and just makes things unnaturally difficult for the players. If for no other reason than so many enemies target the player with the aggro token. In the last game I played, I was the herald, and generally went last in encounters...which because of the rules meant I was always aggrod first, and thus always died first. Stupid af mechanic imo. So thank you for the house rule idea For other players...I would prefer just adding other players as additional characters once that exp comes out. For now...hmmm...
  5. what sealer is better?

    I use Army Painter hardcoat matte barnisj and I havent had any issues. That said, I live in TX, which is definitely hot but not as humid lol
  6. Boss Painting progress and some advice needed

    lol I have never heard of Alclad. Guess I have research to do! I like your idea for the prismatics though. For OSL I usually just use glazes, either airbrushed or painted on depending on the side of the mini. For the Dancer I was thinking of just using the airbrush, so we shall see. As you say, the armor isn't hard to redo...so I might just experiment a bit.
  7. Boss Painting progress and some advice needed

    These are super cool! For the sword...i know it wont fix the bland sculpt, but what about adding some orange osl fire glow on her chest? What paints did you use for the cloth?
  8. Not much promotion for the game?

    I doubt they will release official paint schemes, as they are operating under the license they have from Bandai Namco or whoever for the game assets: my guess is an official paint job would require approval from the company. Could be wrong though. But I have yet to see a minis boardgame based off a license that has official paint schemes. Thinking of Conan, Star Wars, Star Trek, AVP, etc...
  9. Not much promotion for the game?

    Hopefully because it isnt all out in retail yet, and launches have been delayed. Hopefully lol. Steamforged does update about it pretty much every week in their video news, so they DO care about it, for sure. I think some of it is on stores though...my flgs hasnt done any sort of promotion for it yet, and Ive seen very little playthrouhs that arent user made...
  10. The Winged Knight goes down!

    My wife and I tried our first game this afternoon, also aiming for the Winged Knight. We got to the encounter before the fog gate and wiped lol. Those Hollow Crossbowmen are deadly beasts! And why the hell does the Herald not start with a healing spell?! Also...is it a typo that crossbowmens' attacks are magic damage??!!
  11. Need painting suggestion

    Again, I think I'm struggling because this is my first time working with A: metallic paints and B: fantasy figures in ~4 years lol.
  12. Need painting suggestion

    Haha yes it is! I found it when I was painting Aleph for Infinity...super handy! I mean, I'm happy with them as they are. I mean they're Hollows...they don't really HAVE clean lines. There's not much I would do to change. If I was going to spend 25+ hours on each guy individually, then I would probably blend the edges a bit more and the skin tones would be smoother, but, meh *shrug*, good enough lol. A lot of the grainy-ness in the photos is just the camera zoom and pixelization I think, cus you really can't see it holding it up to your eye in the light...it's only noticable under magnification. I'll see if I can get a better show of how they look at 'normal distance'... I mean I don't think I'm a bad painter lol, I just dont know how to make zombies (er, Hollows) look 'clean' lol. I like the Sentinels! They turned out great imo.
  13. Need painting suggestion

    I appreciate the help For sure, my NEXT minis will be better lol. That said tho...I am NOT looking forward to painting the Darkroot expansion stuff lol. >.<
  14. Need painting suggestion

    Thanks guys @squirtis, yeah...That's what I did initially, but when I tried dulling them down like Rookie suggested, I was doing it over the hardcoat sealer I'd already sprayed on, which unfortunately added texture to the highlights that I hadn't intended...I tried doing it watered-down on the first few but the paint ran between the 'bumps' and looked horrible, so I found the only way I could get a smooth highlight (even if it wasn't smoothly blended) was to use thicker paint and drybrush. Which normally I hate, lol, and yeah I dislike how they still look 'dirty', but...*shrug* without starting over I'm not going to get the smooth highlights again, so I have to chalk it up to them being hollows lol
  15. Need painting suggestion

    Haha. I still think they're not perfect, but I've kinda shrugged and said they're as good as I can get at this point. I did: 50/50 Dark Grey (Vallejo) and Rucksack Tan (P3) Drybrush with Deck Tan (Vallejo) Wash with 70/30 Neutral Grey (Vallejo) and Menoth White Base (P3) Deck Tan again for details Then after Rookie's critique, I did: Wash with Neutral Grey (just on the paler parts) Final facial details with Menoth White Base again. I'm sure there's a faster way to do it with less steps but I was kind of making it up as I went, since there is no 'official color scheme' for these guys. It's made me take probably twice as long for almost all of them, and is quite annoying and different from what I used to (mimicing the studio paint job), but oh well
