You beat me to it!

DEFINITELY hope they sell Dark Age and Wrath of Kings to someone who will actually do something with them.

Dark Age is probably a little complicated by the whole BRON thing, as well as CMON's #1 having a sentimental attachment to the IP.

Still, Dark Age is a fantastic game, with a host of fantastic miniatures and I'd love to see it live on - even though yes, Everything Dies - so hopefully Everything Dies...again!

Steamforged just announced several old boardgames they've acquired.

I'd be surprised if they go for the wargame as they shut down their most popular one and their other one isn't doing that well as I never hear about it even from Steamforged. Their investors don't seam to care for how low margin wargames are.

From the CMON Insider stream the next KS is Dune - from the designers of War of the Ring. KS in a few months - no date given - smaller more focused KS.

https://cmon.com/news/cmon-announces-dune-war-for-arrakis-board-game

Familiar elements from WoTR, new game built on top of it. bigger in scale. Based on the novel not the film but they do have access to the film as well as part of the license. Over 100 minis in core game, Bloodborne scale minis (28mm) smaller than their normal sized minis (32mm) to fit the game board. 2 faction game with some allies. Minis and art design are their own interpretation don't expect film designs. Sand Worm size TBD needs to serve the game.

The Dune designers are the same team/guy that did Ares' War of the Ring (Roberto Di Meglio, Marco Maggi, Francesco Nepitello)? That was closer to 15mm, big dudes-on-a-map game. It was a masterpiece, so if they're following in that mold, it might be fun.

But the models look too detailed for that scale... Is there another War of the Ring I'm not thinking of?

I play...

Sigh.

Nope that's the right game alright Francesco Nepitello was on the stream, they said Bloodborne scale but didn't elaborate further so on that basis 28mm as opposed to CMONs more usual 32mm scale. Bloodborne did some minis as groups on single base.

War of the Ring minis are about 25mm tall (to the top of their heads). You could probably increase that to 30-32mm for a normal 28mm scale and fit the minis alright, especially if nobody gets to spawn orcs on Arrakis.

fwiw, the Ares War of the Rings miniatures are these dinky boardgame plastic things. My copy is buried under a shelf of games but they're about the size of a six-sided die.



More importantly, here's my favorite guide to painting the Ares boardgame.

"Section I: deciding to do it

1. Don’t do it. Really. It isn't worth it. It is a lot of work, a whole lot of work. Now, I'm not talking about just spray painting your figures so that you can tell them apart--by all means, go ahead and do that. For the purposes of this article, painting refers only to the real deal--painting your figures by hand with details in multiple colors so that they look really good. It's almost certainly not worth doing--stop reading now, and go do something fun--play the game or something.

Do you still want to do it? OK...

2. Ask yourself why you want to paint your figures. If the answer is, "I want really cool figures like the pictures on the Geek," I refer you to step 1. If it's, "I want to be able to tell apart my figures," go get yourself some spray paint or some paint pens (to mark the bases) or something. Then refer to step 1. The only people who should consider this are those who can honestly answer, "I think it would be really fun to spend a super long time painting my figures." How long is a super long time? I painted these with the help of my girlfriend. We worked on them together, every night, for hours, and it still took the two of us six weeks to finish them. Expect it to take at least twice as long if you are working alone. And are you aware that an expansion with more figures is forthcoming? YOu are committing yourself to painting those as well.

https://boardgamegeek.com/thread/37355/so-you-want-paint-your-war-ring-set

*****

As for CMON's Dune, I haven't played Ares War of the Ring much, but good to see a "new edition" of the game. Will pass because I have War of the Ring, and the worldwide supply chain and shipping issues.

NotifyGrout's Goobertown Hobbies DIY Contrast mix:
* 1 drop matte medium
* 1 drop flow-aid water mixture (1:20)
* 1 drop acrylic ink

My own:
* White-primed miniature lightly pre-inked in a dark shade.
* 1 drop acrylic ink in a small pot of paint (eg. children's craft paint). Do not mix.
* Dip the brush in the ink. As you paint, you can dip into the paint to make the layer more opaque.

lol. That's some good advice right there! (the figures are pretty low quality - just fine for this type of game, but they are tiny and low detail and it's just not worth it!)

But I have the collectors edition, which makes the idea of painting it moot... Woot!

I play...

Sigh.

WotR makes character models work entirely separately from troops (army) units, so this game may have taken this further and simplified armies to tokens like the existing Dune board game.

Some WotR players already do this with their orc, elves etc.

Either way, WotR is one of my all-time favourite games, so I'll definitely get this one somehow.

I think at this point in time the Series has a much larger reach and is considerably more popular. Who knows? If they sell well enough they could potentially always follow up with some from the comics. With the Buys and Supernatural sets back to back, I wonder if Eric Kripke might have something to do with it?

Interesting that Dune has gotten a strategy video game and now is getting into the hobby mini painting scene.

Too bad Dune still has the problem that it has always had. The more I learn about Warhammer 40k lore the more cool it becomes. The more I learn about Dune lore the less cool it becomes.

I wish I had never read the latter Dune books and the Dune books Frank Herbert's son wrote. Dear f*cking god.

Also, no sapient aliens. rip.

Back to retail!

ASOIF expansions spotted at Boarding School Games. About $10 off $35 MSRP. $30 on Amazon.

Probably only worth it if you're looking for several sets.

No free shipping, and I *think* the best shipping prices are for those near their store in Nevada.

Best ASOIAF deals I have found recently are from Boardlandia.com they are generally equal to other online sale prices for CMON, but they have a few sets that are $16.00 off regular retail price. Those are usually units that come in the starter sets. Also cheap delivery in the US, not sure about free deliveries. Also they have a dinged and dented section that some times you can score on.

CMON to release Stranger Things game to retail. Not much else known so far.

"Although we do not have too much information other than the announcement, this title was not teased in the usual CMON format, and it is not solely being produced by the publisher alone. Rob Daviau, co-creator of Pandemic Legacy and Cthulhu: Death May Die, announced on the Dice Tower’s Summer Spectacular announcement stream that he is in the midst of creation with CMON, heading to the supernatural town of Hawkins.

And fantastic news for players, the Stranger Things: Upside Down title will be jumping off of crowdfunding and going straight into retail! The game is apparently almost finished and has been heavily inspired by the Netflix show.
