    I felt a deep and oppressive presence fall over the land.
    My home heavy with its presence, something that demanded attention. A darkness that fell over this land… a MASSIVE DARKNESS!

    So yeah my massive darkness pledge arrived :D

    So while it is really good that it arrived! But :’( the problem is I have quite a lot going on as I am doing this so I am thinking maybe this may be something for a weekender hobby night? Who knows? I wanted to get more non GW stuff on WAYPN but I also want to get all of this painted as a measure of accomplishment :D

    So what do you think guys you want to see some games? Some painted minis? Something else completely?! Alright guys I will leave you for now :D
    Have you received your pledge?
    What did you order? What didn’t you? And most importantly!
    Why? TO ALL of the above :D

    Alright guys and gals have a good one :D

    Ooooooooooh nice! I’m still (very impatiently) waiting for my pledge.

    And just iike you, I have so much else going on too. So not sure when I’ll get to start painting…but I’ll definitely be playing as soon as it gets here. Been so looking forward to this game.

    I ordered quite a lot of extra stuff. Truth be told, it was the first kickstarter I jumped in to, so kinda went a little overboard :p When the box gets here, I’ll snap a picture.

  • Avatar Image caladors4874p said 4 months, 1 week ago:

    @aurorainbag well I thought I went overboard and my friend got more than me!

    So I wonder what you think is over board OTL o.0 ;.;
    ha ha ha

    Give us a list of what you ordered :D which country are you? How long do you think you will have to wait on that one. I am looking forward to having a game :D

  • Avatar Image aurorainbag505p said 4 months, 1 week ago:

    @caladors I’m in Denmark. I see people getting their pledges in Germany, so I hope it’s coming up further north soon :) I haven’t gotten a tracking number yet, but then I hear people in Europe getting their pledge without ever getting the tracking number.

    So…no clue when I’m gonna get it. Hopefully soon. Have most of next week off, due to summer holiday with daughter-critter. Would be awesome if we could get a couple of games in then.

    I ordered everything apart from the Troglodyte box, a set of dice and the extra pillar and chest box. So a lot *blushes* :)

  • Avatar Image limburger1850p said 4 months, 1 week ago:

    @caladors : cool …
    I hope I’m getting mine soon too.
    Did you get any kind of notification before it arrived ?

    I think I had one of everything in my pledge.

    With a bit of luck this month will see the arrival of more than a few kickstarters *grin*

    @ both of you really :P

    Well I got a notice from Australia post but it had arrived before I got the notice ha ha

    @aurorainbag
    I really liked the idea of the troglodyte box because it is an easy access bad guy box for my game :) also am I the only one who thinks their packaging is amazing?

    @limburger that is freaking intense! Everything well that is what my friend got too… so I guess this is a lot more common than I thought.
    What other Kickstarters?

  • Avatar Image limburger1850p said 4 months, 1 week ago:

    @caladors :
    ‘This War of Mine’, Railraiders, A-case, ‘the monster’ are shipping too so with a bit of luck that shouldn’t be too far apart.(the creators say they’re shipping, I’ve yet to receive the stuff )

    I rarely pick the lowest tier on pledges, because I kind of want ‘everything’ most of the time anyway. And with interest rates being what they are it’s probably cheaper too (well that’s what I tell myself ;-) )

    Did you have any of the bad cards that they mentioned in their recent update ?

  • Avatar Image dawfydd1053p said 4 months, 1 week ago:

    I’ve got the tracking number for RoyalMail but THE DAMN PACKAGE HASN’T SHIPPED YET!!!!

    Ahem.
    I may be rather keen for this to arrive, if nothing else for the great Zombicide: Black Plague/Massive Darkness crossover to begin….
    Wait. Hang on. This has Orcs? Black Plague – The Green Horde has ZOMBIE Orcs. How evil would it be to run a game where you kept a track of how many Orcs the Heroes killed, then resurrected them as The Green Horde midway through?

  • Avatar Image caladors4874p said 4 months, 1 week ago:

    @dawfydd LONG TIME NO SEE :D Good to see you man :D
    Glad to see you’re still here :D

    So I don’t know about how their postage works so *shrugs* :/
    I don’t know if it has Orcs or not I will look through. But yeah…

    @limburger looks like your got a lot heading your way :D
    I don’t know about the cards because I haven’t looked ha ha :/ I should but I am just more interested in the models

     photo DSC01344.jpg

    Here is the first thing I painted so, I tried out blending with airbrushing and it turned out okay :D but yeah.
    So I am going to have to put in more effort :D

  • Avatar Image limburger1850p said 4 months ago:

    @caladors :
    That’s a bit too much green for my likeing, but it probably looks better in real life.

    The boxes are at least another two weeks worth of waiting for me according to todays’ update, but that’s ok.
    I can watch you paint half of it by the time it’s in my hands … ;-)

    btw: if you thought that was a lot you should see what the Mythic Battles kickstarter is like. I think I’m going to need a bigger house after that one.

    // — edit —
    I got the tracking number … so it looks like I got advance warning ;-)

  • Avatar Image dawfydd1053p said 3 months, 4 weeks ago:

    My package arrived Friday and damn! That’s a lot of models! I didn’t get add much on to the Lightbringer pledge beyond the plastic tokens (almost a must-buy if CMON offer it for one of their games) Black Plague crossover card pack and and extra set of pillars & chests (not sure why I did that…) but man, I wish I’d been able to afford some of the extra encounter and monsterpacks for completions sake….

  • Avatar Image aurorainbag505p said 3 months, 2 weeks ago:

    My pledge arrived yesterday. Picture as promised :)

    Now I just need to find time to paint it all :D

    Btw @caladors I absolutely love your Sibyl. Wish I could see it in real life :)

  • Avatar Image caladors4874p said 3 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Okay :D Awesome to see people have had their stuff arrive! I think we are all facing a similar dilemma! We have a lot to paint, and if you want to put here or in WAYPN as your painting it feel more than welcome to! I would love to have someone whip me to do it as well :D

    @limburger
    You were right it was too much green I am going to look at the cards as guides from now on I was using the box art and for some reason the tiny card art is better than the massive box art :/
    So I added some colour to her, and made her arms blue like in her art.

    and I decided against mythic battles for deep madness? darkest madness… I have forgotten the name but it is scifi and has great characters for it.

    @dawfydd
    You know still to this day I have an unusual pride being able to pronounce your name ha ha

    And I will tell you why you did it because hero quest style terrain is freaking AWESOME! That is why!

    @aurorainbag
    Thank you very much for your comment but considering I am Australian I doubt that will happen but maybe one day ha ha

    But you got a huge amount… massive even ha ha ha :P
    But yeah it looks like you got way more enemy boxes than I did

    I am jelly of the elementals but they were the most expensive ;o;

    Alright everyone have an awesome day and hopefully, we can have a massive painting session and bring all of these minis out from the darkness in which they live :D

  • Avatar Image aurorainbag505p said 3 months, 2 weeks ago:

    Deal! I’ll take on the challenge to start getting these painted. :) If nothing else, the heroes and the roaming monsters. Would it be wrong to post the WIP pictures i waypn and the finished ones here? Or maybe link the finished pictures either to here from waypn or vice versa. That way we’ll have one place to go for inspiration to Massive Darkness figures. And waypn will get some love too. Not sure if that would be considered spamming the forum though.

    @caladors You’ll never know. Australia is high on my list of places I’d like to visit. If I find myself down under, I’ll definitely let you know :) For now though, it seems I’m using all my money on games instead of plane tickets.

  • Avatar Image aurorainbag505p said 3 months, 2 weeks ago:

    I’m just thinking out loud here…haven’t thought this through. But we could perhaps challenge each other with specific mini(es). Like for September the challenge is Owen, og a goblin boss and a couple of his minions etc. Could ve rather fun seeing our different takes on the same figure.

    Anyway, as I said…haven’t thought it through. Just an idea that popped in my head :)
