Consolidating my KD stuff... hit my stride a few posts down with my second Twilight Knight.

Super-excited about KD, with some thoughts on the matter as usual.

So, the first of many:

Thanks! Yeah, I love working with atmosphere, and the built-in impetus for OSL is really letting me go to town!

I'm not a huge fan of some of the rather scantily-clad sculpts that KD has put out, but I have to say that those monsters and your most recent batch of painted humans look phenomenal. As others have noted, your ability to create atmosphere is astounding. Do you have a tutorial on how to paint flesh in that kind of lighting yet? I'd really appreciate it if you would make one.

Excellent depiction of shadow and light on those latest minis.

Very nice indeed.

Thanks, all!

youidiotkid, yeah, I'm starting to feel like the regular models are a hit way more than the first few scantily clad ladies I painted.

I'm still experimenting with this new way of coloring, so don't have anything like a tutorial together, but I'll definitely try to down the line.

The very basic version is, like everything I paint, I start with the midtone (skin color) then blend the middle to the shadow, then the middle to the highlight. the shadow is blue-grey, and the highlight is orange, with yellow and white extremes.

Heyas SC!

Really love the work you've done on these minis. Really love the lighting. Very grim. I really need to get off my butt and get some paint on my own minis. I particularly like the cloak on that savior. It almost glows!



So I while I was reading your report, I had a question about one particular bit:
"NOTE: we realized nemesis years are for the next year, not the current one, so it should have actually appeared year 5."

My campaign is currently on the butcher and we're encountering it on Year 4 (so the 5th fight including the tutorial Lion).
I cant seem to find any indication that you encounter Nemeses in the year following the note on the Settlement Sheet.
Where's this noted?

Hi, sorry, realized a decent amount of my document was weird: We'd started thinking of settlement as the end of each year, rather than the beginning of it (probably because the first year has no hunt), so a lot of our notation was off.

The end of the fourth year (the fifth fight) is correct. We fought ours between the third and fourth years (our fourth fight), which we mistakenly noted down as our fourth year. I'll need to correct that.

Edit: corrected the blog. I think everything's right now. Realized that it was a combination of aforementioned hunt thing and that you check off a year when you get to it, not when you complete it.

Ahaaaaaa Gotcha!!

Wow, that'd be considerably more of a challenge... We've been having some troubles just fighting him on schedule! Really gotta rethink our tactics. His bleed counters can be brutal.

Ok then! Thanks!

Yeah... we barely got out of that one.

We're in the middle of a King's Man fight, and man is that guy terrifying. Right now, it seems like the people are tougher than the animals.

Also, we're getting bandages before we consider going up against a level 2 butcher... hope it doesn't have anything awful like more bleeding tokens.

IIrc, one of the big things on Butcher2 is that he gets 3 cards a turn rather than 2. Plus a couplea counters on him....

Definitely agree with you on the Nemesis monsters being way tougher than the monsters...

Bandages and monster grease proved invaluable when I ran through Butcher just now... Just so happened to get the tall grass terrain, too, so was playing hard to hit.... REALLY lucked out!

Ouch, that's rough on level 2...

And yeah, grass is everyone's best friend. It's fantastic when you draw two pairs. We'd prioritized monster grease last time, but this run we've been drawing really poorly on organs...
