Kickstarter report card.

Well I have been doing kickstarters for over a year and Its time to report and give grades on them. Since my first Kickstarter was spinespur, I should do that one first. I recieved my fat loot back in December 2013. I am overall sastified with it, there were a few snafus, but overall I am pleased.

My pic from when I received it. Like I said I was overall very pleased with the kickstarter and think Robert Mervine is a straight up dude and will buy from him in the future.  I will point out the little issues I had with and then heap praise on comfy chair.

One of the issues i had with the newer models is the hands on the radiants. They did not stick well and there was not enough to pin the hands. But the rest of the model was solid. One of the nighengales should have been a multipart model, it was difficult to paint. The pig stickers I had trouble getting the arms in place(did not match up that great) and I seemed to be the only one that had trouble with the bellsaw thug. Others were able to put it together without issue. I had some difficulty.  Also the hard cover book was nice, but the pages are thinner than the softcover. So i will only be gaming with the softcover of the book. The final issue was the gladiator arm was not fully formed but Robert promised if you place another order with him you will get a replacement for free. 

You may ask why would I order to get the replacement, should he not just send me the replacement? Well yes I would normally agree, but Robert  had money left over from the kickstarter. He could have pocketed the bucks and enjoyed the little bit of money he made, but he had 2 more models made and gave them away for free to certain pledges. They were really done well that was very generous of him. Also the other models were awesome. We got some freebies and even though the delivery was late (he delayed because he found some issues with quality on the book and a model and that is understandable), I did not fear Robert would not deliver. I was also able to get every model I wanted (I have all of the kickstarter models except one) and the rest of the models were of great quality.

In conclusion I would back another kickstarter that comfy chair games does without hesitation. I hope he expands the spinespur line even further. 

Quality: A-
Value: A+
Delivery Time : B

Overall : A

Future suggestions: Give weekly updates even if it is to say nothing is happening.

Not much content quantity wise...

But alot was done. I had been working on a terrain table. That felt table is gone.. and converted into this table. below is what has been built. Lugz and Daniel helped me with the carpentry aspect of it and we got it sanded and glued.
Fresh after it was sanded.  Layers of sand and glue, dried and sprayed with wood glue to seal it.

Primed and painted. Will add more coats  and details later.

The Zed or Alive Kickstarter is over and I got the PDF of it. I should get the book and loot cards in the coming weeks. Looks like a cool game. It is based on the Savage worlds Showdown rules.
Finished the broken reaper I won from ebay. It looks alot different and better if you ask me. :) I went with a classic cryx Helljack look. I also like my arc colors. It does not distract you like some of the green ones I have seen and yet it is easy to follow.

Scrapthralls are here to blow you up

The scrapthralls are here from my ebay auction and nicely painted. Not perfect and I am not the best painter, but they are painted at least. I decided to go with different colors on the scrap thralls .. they are scrap after all :) I also tried my hand at swamp bases. I think they turned out decent.

Warmachine Wednesday

So my buddy lugs and I played some Warmachine the last few days. We played Sunday and Wednesday.

Sunday was a quicker game because we really did not know what we were doing and learning the rules. The Wednesday round was longer and we still didn't know what we were doing ;) Kidding it went smoother but we checked rules a few times and discussed the rules out and it made it a bit longer.

Sunday match just trying to get to point A.

The Cygnar.

Warmachine weekend

After being jerked around by Iello and their Guardians Chronicles kickstarter. I finally got my refund. I highly recommend you stay away from supporting Iello.

Anyways after much frustration finally, I put the funds to get me a Cryx Army from Warmachine fame. I hit ebay and my Local store up for some warmachine goodies.

below we Have reaper. I got a real good deal on him because he was broke. The body is off the base now and is in some purple power. He will get a new coat of paint after I fix his arm.

Below is Dennie and Pistol Wraith, a warcaster and solo. Be afraid. :)

Next Is Slayer, he likes to punch folks in the face.

Skarlock Thrall, well because he was super cheap.

Seether, not the band, the war Jack. He likes Pina Coladas and punching folks and causing pain.

And the Chicken jacks as haters like to call them.  

Scrap thrall and Necrotech

Thats all for now, more will be coming soon and you can see how I changed the look of some of them. Some will be minor, others wont.
