Paint minatures or not? Wed, 24 August 2005 05:57
Hi all,

Just got back from GenCon where we demoed this awesome game. Went ahead and purchased it after just one game, mainly because of the colaboration aspect of the game.

My question though is this, we got a little spoiled during the game we played as Big Box Games who was demoing it there had a set of the minatures that were painted and looked really nice. Opening that box to just plain old plastic was a bit depressing. So, how many of you are playing with painted sets, or just the basic base painting?

I don't have time to paint them.
- and there should soon be a set of fully painted miniatures availble from DoW.

However I am not sure I want to spend the extra money, though.

But we have never had any problems just playing the game as it is. It is still a great looking game!

I already have enough of a painting backlog with my wargaming miniatures (in the hundreds), and use boardgaming as a welcome break, as there is (generally) no need for glueing, painting, and other model work.

However, looking at these, they would surely look magnificent when painted up. I might get around to painting these sometime, especially if we end up playing it quite a lot (which I hope we do). Smile

Yes, we should have sets of all 8 knights (the standard 7 ones from the game, and Sir Bedivere) painted in time for Christmas. More news around October.

Well now, there's my solution - no need to paint them myself, and I can get Bedivere thrown in. Smile

That is good news indeed.

Eric,

Thanks for the update. All 8 knights is a great start, but what about the Picts, Saxons and seige engines?

Thanks,

Skip

Thanks Eric,

I agree to Skip, a complete set of all miniatures including picts, saxons and seige engines would be great. Possibly there could be different sets - one with the knights and another one with the rest of the miniatures - so everyone can decide to buy only the knights or all miniatures.

If the knights' set do well, we will most likely make another set containing the reminder of the miniatures available later.
