  4. [CANCERBLACK]
    Since I'm getting more than one box, I might do an "entry level" tutorial with some of the models and then some more advanced stuff later. For example, perhaps a very basic Predator with the "cheat" I mentioned for the netting gone into, marines with just basic colours and shading etc. Then for the advanced ones, go into manually painting the Pred-netting, painting camo patterns and eyes onto marines,  and so on.
  5. [CANCERBLACK]
    I'll post some written/photographed tutorials too, although I don't have the equipment to do videos. The Aliens should be a piece of cake to paint, the marines look slightly harder, and elements of the Preds are gunna be challenging even for experienced painters (mostly the netting), although there will be ways to "cheat" that part.
  6. Mr. Domino
    I've been purposely restricting my painting to a bare minimum the past month or so, so that I'll be ready to go when the box arrives. Definitely planning on a somewhat exhaustive primer series for people new to the hobby on how to clean, assemble, and paint the models - considering doing an unboxing video as well, but I figure there will be plenty of those floating about once the KS shipments start arriving.
  7. Corporal Hicks
    There are other expansions coming out. There were others available for the KS but they'll be coming out in the second wave. I can't remember them all but off hand I can recall -

    Queen
    Crusher
    Praetorian
    Warriors
    Predalien

    Power-Loader
    Alternate Squad of Marines
    Sargent
    Dutch (from AvP Arcade game)
    Linn (from AvP Arcade game)

    and a bunch of Predator ones. Berserkers, cloaked figures, Predator Hounds.

    They've said they'll make pretty much anything there's demand for aside from named characters from the films (due to likeness). They've got rights to pretty much the entire EU from the sounds of it.
  8. Corporal Hicks
    Glad it's finally happening at last. The production values are great but why aren't the figures painted?

    It's just the way miniature games like this tend to work. As Dachande says, half of the appeal for a lot of the people who play is to paint them how they want. It sucks for folk like me who prefer to play the game and can't paint to save their lives but I'll have to do something basic.

    Morning all, here are a few answers to frequently asked questions from yesterday:

    1. The Board game is in production as we speak, we should have 1st copies by Monday 25th, to go to FOX as a product reference. We have been assured that at that stage there is no "delay" or need for any approval, however the product must be examined and stored as a master copy. Any further changes to the product (if needed) will be done as a running change. For clarification : A running change is an alteration made to a toy in the middle of its production run, that can result in two distinct (in some way, often quite minor) toys, which are considered the "same toy" by the manufacturer, carrying the same wave identifier and (usually) the same internal product code.

    2. The official, and confirmed release date of the board game is the 30th June (retail) AND 22th of June for KS backers. The KS release is subject to change (an EARLIER date may be possible if we can make point 3 below happen) and is only dependent on external company manufacturing capabilities. As always we will keep you updated. Most KS backers, depending on their location and/or delays with customs, should have their game before it hits and shop shelves.

    3. We are trying to arrange with manufacturing and logistics if at all possible to have at least 50 copies for UK Games Expo, if this happens, collection will be available for those backers who would like to pick up their copy at the UK Games Expo, more info to follow.

    4. Under the terms and conditions of the contract we are obligated to release the KS V1 boardgame (High quality resin miniatures) to retail. The plastic injection models are in the approval pipeline and we are aiming to have it approved in 4 to 6 months. (For clarification: resin to plastic changeover cannot be classified as a running change due to usage of different material for manufacturing and quality "degradation" of the product).

    5. Add-ons: The Models are approved, and we are going to start working on Monday to get the packaging and cards green-lit as well. We have been assured that it won't be long process as the RULES (written material) for add-on models were approved with Main rulebook.

    6. Customs: the Invoice for customs will reflect the "manufacturing" cost, as promised during the KS and not the retail cost. This may affect non-EU and non-USA backers.

    7. USA backers: The very first copies of the game will be shipped to our USA dispatch centre, to reduce any delivery downtime, however, I won't be hiding the fact that your collogues in Europe may get the game few days or weeks before your copy reach your doorsteps. I can promises that we will do the best we can to reduce the downtime.

    8. Also, for clarification: we have number of shops participating in the KS as well (a shop customers collective pledge), thus, in some cases you may see the product on the shelves before it reaches you. Please keep it calm, as we have promised the priority are backers.

    9. Pledge manager changes and address update. By Friday we'll have an update for you with instruction how to do changes in the PM, postal address update and locking the PM. PLEASE make sure that you have done final alternations to your pledge, including the updated postal address by 31st of May. IT will affect the shipping date if the pledge manager is not locked. Please do not send emails to request that we update your postal address as we don't have capacity and capability to do it manually. All information will be available in a forthcoming update.

    I'm hoping I'll be able to pick up my copy from UK Games Expo.
