OE - Status of Projects

Just wanted to say that although everyone is now looking forward to the championship that's close by, the OE has been quite busy.

Expect PDF's of Dragon Collector's Set, Fall 2012 Sculpts (containing the 3 released Dungeon Command Stats), PHH2, Items and a small surprise from Felian.
All these should be made available to the community in the upcoming days.
Lords of Madness and Dungeons of Dread will also be re-released in a near future so that the text can be seleced and copyed, something that might be useful to some of you out there.

And I'm working on a new project that's still to be revealed to the community. Smile

Hope these are some good news to you guys.

I know we haven't said much lately. The past month and a half has been a quite busy for some of us with Christmas, work, joining new projects, moving to different countries and... Well, real life. Sad

Anyway, we have not forgotten the OE community and we're working on some new conversions. Right now we're revising the 3 new minis from Cuse of Undeath which will be the 1st OE minis to be released in 2013:
LE/CE Disciple of Kyuss;
LE Nanamat, Ancient Lich;
CE Warcleave Skeleton.
Alignments might change though. Tongue

Work has also been started on the 3 Nerath Bonus pack:
CE Skeletal Pixie;
LE Anklebiter Imp;
CE Brownie Skirmisher.
These are, for now, a bit of a headache due to their small size and low cost. But its a nice way to work on such small creatures and get a feel of their abilities before moving to the 9 pieces Nerath stats themselves.

A tiny ammount of work has been put to the Epic Mages set, although admitedly this set might take a little longer to explore and fully convert though.

And there might be an extra surprise with new stats just around the corner. Wink

Once all these are released, there will be only the 2nd Epic set, the Games Set minis and the 3 full expansions (Against the Giants, Demonweb and Savage Encounters) to convert (plus whatever gets released with Dungeon Command although I'll try to convert those as soon as they get released).
Although that IS quite a whole lot of work ahead, truth is that a whole lot has already been worked out too. And with so few of us working on these projects its a bit hard to get faster OE releases. Helping hands are welcome, of course. Smile

Again, many thanks to Felian and alepulp for their helping hands.

Thank you. Btw, have you had a chance to further test the material I sent you? Not a problem if the answer is no but if so, please let me know.

beren

Actually we use some items in time to time but not at the same pace as in the tests. I'll try to remember the situations and I will send those to you.

Its no biggie. I'd just like to know the overall evaluation of it. Smile

You'll have all the more fun when you have another chance to play it. Wink
BTW, you always got Vassal and alepulp was checking for people to play DDM over there on another thread... Vassal might be a temporary solution...

Meanwhile I got work for you. Muahahahahahahah!!!! Kidding!

Do you have a link to the original edition versions of the Beholder collectors pack? Eye of Frost, etc? The article on the main site links to the wrong PDF in the original edition section, unfortunately.

Something that I discussed with alepulp briefly a while back was updating some of the Epic GoL stats to make Level = Save. Save 10 made them vastly inferior to some of their later counterparts.

DROW

I agree with the above 100%.

I'm a bit unsure about what you mean, Thenameless...
GoL = Giants of Legend, right? There were no Epics by then... Is there an extra GoL file with epic stats for some of them old minis (Aramil, Eberk, Regdar, Lidda, Lord Soth possibly)? If so, where?

Hi Everybody,

How about the Dragon Collector's Set ??
Do you have any idea about when the cards will come??

@DarkRequiem: TheNameless is talking about the huge minis from Giants of Legend and King Snurre, they have more than 140 pts and/or are huge, so they are legal only in epic games.

By the way Fire Giant, Frost Giant, and Chuul (Aberrations) have save = 10 as well.

DarkRequiem

Ah! I didn't notice that. Truth be told, since I don't have many things on that set, I never spent much time looking at those minis.

Ok, here's a compilation of things to look for:
Stone Golem
King Snurre
Huge Gold Dragon
Cloud Giant
Storm Giant
Warforged Titan
Glabrezu
Huge Red Dragon
Nightwalker

These are all above 140pts.
Aside from these, we have below 140pts but huge sized:
Treant
Behir
Bulette
Fiendish Tyrannosaurus
Fomorian

You want these as epic?

beren

Stone Golem only costs 134 pts, aside of that, those minis are already epic (or available only in epic games) because of their cost or size.

The original question is more about to use their level for saves instead their "Save = 10" ability, for example Coud Giant is level 17 but for all practical situations he is level 10 because of such ability, so level 10 for morale saves, saving throws, etc.

Felian

i have always played them as they were simply level 10...

using them with theri original level might cause some real chenge in their use

alepulp

Higher than 15th is probably too high, but you could scale them up to that level - e.g. the most powerful creature is 15th level, then down to those that belong at 10th level.

A max of save=15 sounds good.

Welcome. More is on its way. Smile

Regarding the above discussion, I won't say much right now since I never used these minis and don't know much about the discussion.
