Mother of God. Dark Carnival will be mine! >8) I'm guessing that Mr. Cooper's first name is Alice?

Definently using that stuff instead of Colette but definently want to buy Colette anyway... I'm in an awkward place in my hobby life. :/

Between Baritone Lola and the reaction to my R3 IP entry I think its safe to say I'm going with my "Hypothesis C" = "Nathan is more or less indifferent to klowns and it was a silly baseless rumor which he neither confirmed nor denied to keep the rumors and secrets floating because reasons."

Thanks for including my entry in the Chronicles... even though it was the one I tried the least on. ;)

There is nothing to stop someone from using the Dark Carnival as something else. Maybe not official at Gencon or Adepticon, but locally, go nuts and use it as what ever you like. 

Personally, I would love to formulate a completely unofficial beta on the forums haha

Okay, I am totally down for that! Now then, to make rough drafts and such... I already have taken the time to make a Mr. Cooper (three upgrades as well), and Flying Monkey stats. Now, to make Baritone Lola, Mercury, and Thin Lizzy... And likely another 3 upgrades haha

 

I'm thinking Arc/Nvb - does that sound good? :)

I smell a new thread that I think I would like to be a part of... *sniffffffff*

It could be interesting to have the monkeys as movement pieces.  For example have a rule that when they start in base contact with a model they can make a move and that model is placed in base contact with them.  Give them a rule for ignoring disengaging strikes so they can be used to move enemy models about as well as friendly models, at the cost of remaining in combat with them.

 

Trying to brainstorm unique mechanics for the crew.

Now the only thing which is presently putting pause to my creation of this thread is the location where I should post it.

 

Also, I have a few ideas already for some of the models, but I will want to see other, different drafts in the thread as well for the same models. :)

Damm, I want the 2 new performers. They are even nicer than the limited edition one hahaha, and Cassandra looks great also, I can´t be bothered with the doves, and the mannequins. They look great, but not such a big improvement.

 

My big question is Colete. I think I prefer the metal one :S

I'm most excited about the Effigies getting released - there's quite a few I'm interesting in acquiring. Quite pricy though, since they are packaged individually...

I'm a bit sad that I'm not the most excited about Wong since I've been waiting for his box quite eagerly but unfortunately Mancha Roja doesn't look as good as I hoped (his pose is really not indicating the movement of what he is doing) and the Lightning Bugs have gigantic magic effects which look quite impossible to remove and keep the models looking coherent. Really not fond of the giant magic effects that Wyrd seems enamoured now. And not a new Wong sculpt, either :(

Oh, and I would've preferred Mah Tucket to be the Gencon Gremlin release :P

But I will be getting the box and it's not like it's horrible or anything. It just could've been quite a bit better, I think.

Dark Carnival is a very fun idea and I like basically all the models with some being absolutely brilliant (the flying monkeys!). I also really like the voluminous Performer in the normal Colette crew. Colette could be better and Cassandra is a bit of a let-down as well but the Mannequins are certainly cool.

Finally, Jack Daw's Guilty look really quite bad. But that I rather knew already, so no biggie. And it seems that many people appreciate the in-your-face style. I still have no idea what the guy on the cross is supposed to be, though. It just looks really bizarre and gratuitous. The bed is really, really silly and the electric chair dude is somewhat comical as well.

I wonder if I will get called a basement-dweller this time for daring to voice my opinion :D

I agree with you on Colette.  For a team of performers, I was surprised at how... static the models looked.

 

And I probably agree on the effigies too :D

I was surprised at that, but then, how else were they going to do it? Each effigy is dedicated to a faction. Asking people to buy a set of effigies they might only use 1 of is a bit much. And isn't the effigy price the current baseline single model price?

Seperate effigies is lame, but I understand why it is this way.

Also, I really don't think people act like proxy police that often. For example, at adepticon people were using lacroix as bayou gremlins and no one cared. Or like anything really - punks as students, whatever. If you used Gandolf the Grey for a Colette proxy I'd just say go for it - who cares. I love seeing proxies, especially when the real models are lame. I often buy models specifically to proxy other ones that have a crappy model.

If you ask your opponent if you can proxy and they say no then they are probably a big jerkhead. ;)

I'm kinda picky with my proxies though like I would want any sins hired by JD to be the deadly sins from the Helldorado range but If hiring them with anyone else I would use the wyrd model (lovin' me son Fat Samedi :) ) or say - I would like the watcher from the Kingdom Death lineup as Ama No Zako in JD's crew as well - but only for him. Maybe I'm being picky or maybe just a proxymoron. ;)

EDIT: Wyrd saying no proxies at their events is fine because they are a big corporate bully and they can do whatever they want and I'll buy all their damn models anyway - when they aren't looking I'll swap them out for something else I fancy instead. >8)

Totally agree. I don't mind saying that this boxset is utter garbage in my mind - mostly because Wyrd generally puts out amazing stuff otherwise (even though im getting sick of filling and filing plastic seams - why people like plastic kits I'll never know :( )... we can't all be fanboys and its better to be honest even if you are dissenting. Easily the worst boxset to date but I must say that the Montresor render looks better than I thought it would. Not wanting to end on a positive note - I'll also add that those guilty look much worse in render than I expected.

Yeah, those "nice" community members can be real dicks sometimes, eh? B)

Probably. Just wait for zFiend.

Well last time the basement dwellers was used it was not used by me but against me so I'm kinda missing your point here?

Anyway. Wong box is so horrible, seriously so horrible on all accounts that all my interest on playing Wong simply disappeared. Good for my wallet.

Jack Daw is the most horrendous box ever made by Wyrd. Just pure stupidity in a box. Like a 13 year old had watched some metal music videos and built that box.

Colette alone is seems a bit boring and highly better in metal.

Dark carneval must be one of the goddamn coolest releases in a while! That box is solid gold.

True. I was referring to the filth monger incident. If someone says he doesn't want to be called something, it's usually Aaron or you who comes in right after and calls them that.

 

Well, I wasn't serious anyway. Joke's on me, it seems.
