The March releases (Lannister heroes 2, and Stark heroes 2.) for Asoiaf were delayed until April. Now, the March releases and the April releases have been delayed until May. The Facebook post says that there is no definite release schedule but releases will be accelerated in May.

Wonder what’s causing the delay. I really want
both new heroes boxes...

We unfortunately must report that the street date for the releases expected today (Stark Heroes II, Lannister Heroes II, Lannister Warrior’s Sons, and Free Folk Cave Dweller Savages) is being pushed back. The delay is due to product making its way to Asmodee’s fulfillment locations, which is happening now. We do not currently have a definite date for these releases, but there will be an accelerated release calendar in May in order to catch back up. Once this is finalized, we will make a more formal announcement.
We sincerely apologize for the delay and will keep you informed as to when you can add these box sets to your collections.

"Free Folk Cave Dweller Savages" sounds like the name of a college band whose drummer is in your Chemistry class, and you keep promising you'll attend one of their gigs, but you have no intentions of attending one of their gigs.

That actually sounds like a band worth going to a concert for. Probably Indie Folk/metal hybrid.

I knew Bloodborne was a Gothic-inspired Japanese game, but those Akihabara Lolita outfits are getting out of hand.

Seams like Miniature Market bout out a lot of CMoNs stock as they're having a big sale starting tomorrow and have been advertising Rivit Wars, Kaos Ball, and The others as things that will be available.

The sale's on,

'Up to' 80% off, but about 40-50% on the CMON stuff mostly, the star buy is probably some of the Arcadia Quest minis from Masamora

Kind of interesting to see what CMoN sold to MM for this. I expected games that CMoN didn't 100% own like Rivetwars but seeing The Others and Arcadia Quests is surprising as well as Smog and a bunch of their non-mini boardgames. Guess we're looking at things that just aren't selling that well?

Most of the offerings didn't surprise me. I backed most of those earlier ones and while some were well received, most kinda just languished with no further support.

Notice there weren't any Zombicides or Arcadia proper on there.

I actually was surprised that some of the Zcide add ons from across various seasons didn't show up.

Everyone likes to tout Lang as being this amazing game designer, and admittedly, he's made some great ones, but a lot of his early CMON contributions weren't all that exciting.

Great minis for the most part though. Especially the Others. Man I wish that game had been a bit more enjoyable to play, or seen a nasty co-op version released.

Well there's two $40 expansions up - Yahar’gul, Unseen Village and Byrgenwerth - which are self contained campaigns. They seem a little expensive for 13 miniatures, an oversized tiles, and a new deck of cards, but maybe that's offset by the amount of "free" stuff we've gotten so far.

Total miniatures at the moment is 85, and some seem to be pretty large. If the model detail is good, a pledge of $170 for $2 a model isn't too bad, and some of them are quite large. And that's not counting the cards, tiles and token upgrades.

Plus, it's got solo rules, so one of the biggest fears of any big kickstarter - not getting it on the table for lack of players - is averted.

Lang is quite good but no one constantly hits things out of the park -- especially with the rate CMoN has him developing stuff. He also tends to have certain game play styles that he does much better then others.

You're right on the Arcadia proper.

I keep wondering if we see stretch goals specifically for the expansions.

I know Invader had stuff get added in to the other core game, but maybe that was due to having a totally extra core game and them really wanting to grab those FOMO pledges.



The Wet Nurse is probably my favorite of the models shown so far. Too many limbs and too many blades make it A-OK in my book.

Shame I have yet to see an actual boss in the video game proper. Damn do I suck at modern gaming...

The Wet Nurse is a pretty fun fight at the end of a grueling run (gotta love when midgame bosses come back as midlevel mooks). It's visually crazy with all the limbs and blades swinging everwhere and the gauzy cloth moving about.

So Mergo's Wet Nurse is close to being unlocked and CMON previewed the next stretch goal - PVP.



4 player screens to keep your information hidden and a new set of rules. You use a premade Chalice Dungeon with enemies (but no boss) and need to be the last Hunter remaining. Seems cool and adds a third way to play the game.

Also, new poll on next Hunter unlock - Charred Hunter set or Gehrman's Hunter set. Charred may look cooler than Gehrman, but I'd bet the Gehrman set has the Burial Blade, which is an awesome weapon.

This ones been growing on me. I never played the video game, but the design aesthetics are cool, and the minis are nice. For the games I actually play, the upgraded gaming elements are nice, but if all I want is the minis, they quickly become useless stretch goals(for me). Still awhile left on this one, before it's done, so hopefully the mini count will continue to rise!

In regards to the miniature market sale. I was able to get the others stuff I had always wanted (just the 'sins' monsters), for a steal, so that worked out great. Sounds like from what people are saying that I can just dump the gaming elements though.

That Migo on Roids looks great. Not sure how the wing things will work in PVC, but it just might be the ideal medium for them. Maybe I'll be able to pick up that expansion for 60-70 on eBay in a couple years...

It really is getting harder and harder to drop this one and go all in on the impending DMC KS.

I know CMON will (probably) do these renders justice in PVC but...

...I'm just not that into this game!

If you're not a big fan of the IP or game system, that makes sense. I'm actually not a big fan, but I like the miniatures and already have too many dice-based dungeoncrawlers. BB's card mechanics seem solid.

After reading Steamforged Game's fulfillment problems and component quality issues, I'm gonna wait for retail for DMC. Base games during holiday sales usually go for half the price of a base game pledge plus shipping, although, of course, you don't get the SG extras. I've only seen the DMC anime, so am only really interested in Dante...!

CMON ends Crystal Brush partnership with Adepticon

THE FUTURE OF CRYSTAL BRUSH

May 09, 2019

We are sincerely thankful for AdeptiCon being a gracious host for Crystal Brush throughout these wonderful years and making it one of the premier painting competitions in the world. The partnership between Crystal Brush and AdeptiCon has been amazing over the past eight years since the two joined together in 2011. However, the 2019 event will be the last year that Crystal Brush will be held at AdeptiCon. After many lengthy discussions, CMON and Adepticon have decided to part ways.

Crystal Brush is continuing on. Painters will want to pay attention for an announcement coming from CMON Expo, happening May 31st to June 2nd. We will have more information about the future of the contest.

Again, our most sincere thanks to AdeptiCon for their wonderful hosting of Crystal Brush and we wish them all the best in the coming years.

And the add-ons for this one have certainly added up to quite a bit.

+$220 if you 'want it all' at this point, making the whole thing a $310/$320 affair, depending on when you jumped on board.

******************

And I can't be sure, but I don't think CMON EXPO has the same attendance as Adepticon.

I wonder what that was all about, re: Crystal Brush/Adepticon?

Probably so they can control what products can be painted (CMON only) for the competition. I’m sure whatever the prize giveaway costs were also part of the negotiations. Promotion costs and the rest are also probably sticking points with the way the numbers for CMoN posted last year, tightening financial costs where they can.

CONSCRIPTED INTO THE BROTHERHOOD
May 10, 2019
In the far north of Westeros, the brotherhood of the Night’s Watch keeps constant vigil along The Wall, the towering edifice protecting the southern lands from the dangerous people and monsters that live beyond. The Night’s Watch is known for taking in anyone and everyone, being a motley band of lesser noble’s sons, convicts, and anyone else who might end up there. These men are trained up to be tireless defenders, but in the beginning, they all start as simple conscripts. This month, Night’s Watch players will be getting the Conscripts unit that they can add to their armies.

The Night’s Watch, overall, is an army of elites. The units have been trained relentlessly and tested time and again against the nightmare creatures of the far north. The one issue is that this results in high unit costs. Night’s Watch players might find themselves with points left over as they try and come up with army builds, or worried about being outnumbered on the field. The Conscripts unit is very economical at just four points to field. They can help balance the numbers game against an opponent who will possibly be fielding more units than they are, as well as just take up the last bits of points within an army build.

With a moderate points costs comes moderate stats. The Conscripts are a dedicated melee unit, with average melee stats. The defensive side of the coin shows that they are not equipped like the full Night’s Watch brothers are, and they definitely haven’t received the same sort of training. One of their special rules, Uninitiated, doesn’t allow them to take Vows. Their defensive save is on a 5+ and their Morale is an 8+. This unit is at risk of losing figures fairly readily.

So, how do they manage to stay on the field? That comes from their other special rule. It’s called Reinforcements, and it allows the unit to regain d3 Wounds whenever it activates. If the Night’s Watch player controls the Wealth space on the Tactics Board, they automatically recover 3 Wounds instead. That’s almost a full rank of troops coming back every time they activate. And opponents can never count the unit out, since if they leave it alone for a round or two, they might suddenly find the Conscripts back at full fighting strength.

The Conscripts box also comes with the Watch Recruiter Unit Attachment. This figure also adds to the durability of the Conscripts, or any other unit they might join. Through Forced Conscription, the unit they’re part of regains a Wound whenever an enemy engaged with them loses models from an Attack or Panic Test. They essentially yank someone out of the other unit and suddenly have them join the Night’s Watch. Welcome to the service!

The Conscripts unit for the Night’s Watch gives commanders a points-efficient unit for the battlefield. They have solid melee stats, and their moderate defensive abilities are mitigated by the unit being able to regenerate Wounds readily. The addition of the Watch Recruiter to any unit will only make sure that the unit is ahead of the curve in a war of attrition against the enemy.

The Night’s Watch Conscripts will be available May 23rd.
