  1. Fs I'm after buying it Second session went well, was mostly the combat in the final room of the goblin cave so not a lot for me to think about. Spoilers LMoP Chapter 1:
  2. You could definitely strip it back a bit and play without upgrades etc. at first. Just get used to flying the ships and attacking with them. Add stuff as your 10 y/o becomes comfortable. I'd say that would be easily manageable.
  3. Patience really paid off! Favourite bit is the sword, sold the effect really well! They could have sculpted him a better head although you've painted it really well.
  4. Not much to contribute as I'm still learning myself (I had to ask Graham how to do some of the things above ). There's a little program called TokenTool that is really great. I used to to make bespoke tokens for my players etc. and if you found yourself short on a monster token or something you could have one up on the board in under 2 minutes: https://www.rptools.net/toolbox/token-tool/
  5. Cheers for the advice Graham. Re 7 PCs - I agree that it's too many to run efficiently but we set this up primarily as a way for my friend group to socialise during the lockdown so don't want to split them. 6 of the 7 are doctors so they'll all be getting hammered in a week or two which should cull the numbers per session anyway! I'll definitely send them a cheat sheet for combat and this will hopefully speed up as they become familiar. I'll try the NPC reactions to OOC chat, that should get a laugh . The doppelgangers seem like a cool tool to play with. Maybe I could have one morph into an absent player or Sildar or both, that'd be really fun. Could set up a quest if they discover the deception to rescue the player who has been captured and replaced!
  6. Survived DMing my first game on Saturday! Properly buzzing, all the players said it was great craic and are keen to continue. Could definitely improve on a few things and grateful for any advice on the queries at the bottom of the post. We played Lost Mine of Phandelver on Roll20. Had far too many players at 7 PCs plus only 1 of the group had any idea how D&D is played (listened to a bit of Adventure Zone) so it was like herding cats. I really struggled to keep up with trying to keep the players moving without telling them exactly what to do, managing Roll20 with minimal practice and had to abandon reading the source text and go from memory as it was too much multi-tasking. I had played out this session before with Graham in the short-lived RLLMUK Beginner campaign which was the only reason I managed to get through it. Spoilers for Lost Mine of Phandelver up to Chapter 1.
  7. I cut it with clippers a little above where it joins the model then use a hobby knife to pare it down. Sometimes a bit of filing required. I find if you cut it too close with the clippers it can leave a dent out of the model.
  8. Kujo has a good channel and his voice is very ASMR
  9. Best of luck, let us know how it goes!

    Yeah, take your time with combat, it should be slow and methodical. When locked on to an enemy, use your movement to create distance and walk around them (so you don't have to take every attack on your shield), take 1 or 2 attacks when you see an opening. Don't get greedy. Back off to recover stamina (stamina recovers very slowly when your shield is up). If you're stuck on a difficult room, think about how you can use the environment to your advantage. I remember the room you're talking about and I think you start above on a walkway? So maybe try to get in some bow/firebomb shots from the top to take out the dogs at the start (some of the barrels will explode if caught in a firebomb and kill any of the enemies nearby). Try to funnel enemies through choke points.
  11. Wow that's a great deal to get 2 series for that. Own them all already and recommend both.

  13. Hadn't heard of this series at all, looks great. Is it pretty violent/scary? Mrs won't tolerate much of either so may be a watch-alone.
  14. Up to Ep 82 so far, trying to catch up to this campaign. Been skipping the one-shots and Undeadwood to get caught up, are any of the one-shots particularly good?

    Dark Souls 3

    Shit, now I have to play it again
  16. Latest Humble Bundle is "Digital Tabletop": https://www.humblebundle.com/games/digital-tabletop-2?hmb_source=navbar&hmb_medium=product_tile&hmb_campaign=tile_index_2 £1 Gremlins Inc. Reigns Reigns: Her Majesty Average (£4.50) Terraforming Mars Armello For the King £7.50 Slay the Spire
  17. Sounds awesome, at least they aren't making you sing (yet)! Do you then keep the character and level up and so on between games or is it one and done and you could have a new character each session?
  18. Nice one @Nicky. Are those little space marines on the base? That thing must be huge! Which gold paint did you use? Looks lovely.
  19. Not forcing yourself to finish a book you are no longer interested in... how do you learn this power?
  20. Not that I know of. Assume you're on about Robin's Hobby Cafe? Never been but aye it's a bit far out for me. Jack Straws is another one even further in the same direction. I just play with mates in our houses, never been to a club or anything. If you're looking somewhere to play/find players, main things I'm aware of in that vein are Lisburn Gaming Club or Dragonslayers at QUB, which both seem pretty big. Vandal above Whites in town has a board games/general geek culture bar thing going on, will have to check it out sometime. Beasts of War are based in Coleraine and think they have a shop there. There's also a shop in Bangor. The only place in town I know of that sells games is Forbidden Planet but everything is at MSRP so not really worth your while.
  21. The Lies of Locke Lamora - 99p
  22. I've got the acquisition disorder with Imperial Assault. Bought most of the content for it but only played 1 full core box campaign. It's really difficult for my mates to meet consistently and there are more of us than max player count - will probably have to try some rotating character hack if we start another. At least I can try the app campaigns out solo I also refuse to play expansions / figure packs unless fully painted which, combined with my glacial painting speed, does not help matters. Maybe by the time my kids are old enough to play it'll be ready! If you live in Belfast by any chance I'll play Descent with you
  23. Hadn't heard of it but a motley band of thieves with some dark world-building is right up my street. Interested to know what you think when you've finished it.
