Re: Kickstarter for Heroscape-Compatible STL files

The design of the lava tiles is innovative, although I wonder whether it would be more useful if you had a multi-filament capable printer to print the crust and insert as a single object. Still, it...

Re: What Board Game Are You Currently Playing?

I used to have a copy of Battledroids, from before George Lucas waved a lawsuit at FASA over the use of the term "droid" and they changed the name to Battletech; the box had a pair of 1/144 plastic...

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

You may be able to find them on the internet archive site. It's got images of all sorts of websites that are no longer extant, including some of the weirder ones, like furnitureporn.com, which was a...

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

I was into wargaming in high school, then when I went to college I got introduced to D&D at the Conflict Simulations Club meetings. Back then it was the white box with the three books, plus the first...

Re: Index of 3D Printed Stl Files

If not for the issue of wall thickness, it might be better to go with something built from their Rampage tileset, although for buildings, particularly customizable ones with interiors, something...

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

I think that this is what kept the System 7 Napoleonics concept from really taking off. The idea was a good one -- the vast majority of the investment in Napoleonic-era miniatures gaming is in the...

Re: Regarding Rebasing

I would need to pull out one of the figures with a peanut base to get dimensions to make a model from; I don't have ready-to-go models for the figure bases. But starting them as brown would just be a...

Re: Kickstarter: What game(s) are you currently Kickstarting

I'm in for the base game, and the mat and the Dynasty Invasion add-ons; I figure with all the additional figures, the original mat would be getting pretty crowded.


I'm restraining myself from...

Re: Custom pillars

I believe, though, that design patents issued since 1995 have a fourteen-year term, which means that the patent on all the tiles but the 24-hex tile should be coming up to expire next year, based on...

Re: Custom pillars

The difference is that their utility patent was rejected, so they got ornamental design patents instead. Ornamental design patents only protect the pieces themselves, but not the interlock or...

Re: Custom pillars

Unfortunately, there is a patent on the tile design (http://www.google.com/patents/US20060043674), by Craig Van Ness and assigned to Hasbro, not just a copyright, which places imitations in a much...

Re: Skylanders Crystals

The base crystal formation is available on Thingiverse (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:447004) for download, and so are the object bases (http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:1789245) I designed, so if...

Re: Another expansion

Depends on what the 'terrain' is. Take the existing AotP map plate format; new terrain is Art department work to draw the map, then printing and cutting onto the cardboard backing; with a colorful...

Re: Hedron Horde - NEW - Special Rule Suggestion?

Within the limits of what we can do to add hedrons to the maps, that works very well; looking at some of the artwork for the game, floating hedrons will be annoying to do -- putting a hedron on a...

Re: Movies: What did You Watch Last Night?

Yes, Scamander came off as a bit of a doofus; a very Hagrid-like attitude toward his creatures.

The American version of the DMLE comes off as a bunch of dogwhistles*, though, with all the...
