Doom and Plauge  
I beat the Christmas Neurax Worm level and I really enjoyed it. Took me about three tries but I got it. I enjoyed the level of difficulty. It was a bit of a challenge but not so hard that it was annoying like the Shadow Plague. I figured out the strategy in good time. I named my worm Bringer of Light as a reference to the Fear story where he's forced to be a good guy and a hero. I really enjoyed socking it to the governments of the world. Also this is the first one where no legality comes into play. Again I was a good guy this time and for once I really enjoyed it. The evil of no happiness and no holidays by law was just something that could not stand. Also seeing the Neurax Worm in a Santa Hat was great. I did get tons of screen caps of the funny news flashes but I have to get them off the play station still so I will have to post those later. Great replay value and I unlocked an achievement. I did not know there would be one. So next up is to try to beat the Black Death level. So I'll be playing as bacteria again. Anyway back to the Christmas worm. Bringer of Light was just the perfect name for that not only that it fits my story for Fear but Neurax Worm is a mind control creature and so is Fear being he's a neuron. It just fit my boy so well. I also loved we weren't fighting against Fear but against sadness and misery.

I got my Doom game today!! The board game that is. I LOVE this thing. I don't play these kinds of table top RPG's though. So I don't care about the board or the rule books or anything like that. I enjoy the art on the cards but may as well be in a foreign language to me. I only got it because I wanted the figures. Anyway check this out.

You get so many figures with this game. They are very well detailed for being so small. Nine Imps. That's great. I was worried about messing up the paint job on these. I do want to try to paint them and I suck at paints. But well with 9 I can paint maybe one or two. Only one Cyberdemon of course so I may not paint him. I don't trust myself for that but I have other plans for him that I hope will work out. More on that some other time. My only complaint is no Hell Knight. I would rather they not made so many of those zombie soldiers and given us at least one Hell Knight instead. I need my villain Bologoth so that was the only disappointing thing.

The three main characters of my story Flight of Fire. Leagrinn the female cacodemon, Balgaar the Cyberdemon and Pyranax the imp. I got these only only because these are my three fave species but also because to me these are my characters. If only Pyranax had the spines right hehe. If this whole sculpting thing goes right I'm thinking of making my own Pyranax figure. Too bad these aren't to scale with each other. Balgaar can hold Pyranax on his arm like a bird.

Here we have a Mancubus, a Pinkie (Bologoth's dog) and a Barron of Hell.

And Barron of Hell, Revanant and Imp. I don't know why but I find Revanants funny for some reason. In my story the one is the comic relief and he's constantly picked on by Bologoth.

So that's been my day today and it's been awesome.

Hey, I'm glad you're back. I have missed our conversations. That was a great level. I may play it through a few more times as Bringer of Light. Oh dear thanks for the heads up that it's hard. I can't imagine it being harder than Shadow Plague but I guess I'll find out.

When I found out about these I had to have them even though they are part of a large board game. There are no other figures out there and these are impressive. They are small too so I see they tried to get the details on the imps but weren't able to get all of it in. They are going to be tough to paint I can tell. Yes they captured the essence of each species well. I see my own guys when I look at all of these too. Thanks. I still have my 4th of July stuff out. I haven't bothered to take it down since there are no holidays until October.

Oh you get to rename countries? No more spoilers please. I want to be surprised. I think if you redownload the game you should get shadowplague as it was free with it now. So I look forward to starting this new scenario.

Yeah I think I will start to put out Halloween Early though because of the trip half way through this month and then I might go to Spain at the start of Sept and won't have energy to decorate when I return. So I may slowly start to switch stuff out.

BTW Peregrine posted her journal on her point of view of her vacation. It was neat.

I don't see where I can make my own scenarios. I would love to try that. I see the ones made by others but right now I am playing through the official ones.

Best not to use the notifications. I don't even get emails from LJ. I use the friends list at the top of your journal page.

Oh that sucks PS4 gets gipped like that. I do have an Xbox one but have never used it. Will be weird logging into that. But then I'd have to buy the game again. Would be weird making scenarios then playing my own levels on PS4. I did beat it and I will talk about it tonight. It was challenge but nothing like Shadow Plague. I did start over a few times.

It's at the top of your journal. You named it Amici. Click that. This is the direct link.

You can also view it through any filters you might have. I check that daily and often.

Sounds like a great day. You succeeded at that game and got your board game, What a lot of figures! I must say, they look quite detailed. Good luck with painting a few. And with your plans for making a Pyranix :)

It was a very good day. Yes two different kinds of game victory. I'm impressed how many figures came with this. They are wonderful. Thanks. I always worry about messing them up when I have tried to paint figures. Thanks. I see the statue of Pyranax so well in my mind. Would be cool if I could make one like that.

Wishing you all the luck in the world with Pyranax. I think he'll come out awesome.

I am impressed by the figures too! The last time I bought a miniature from a gaming store I was kind of disappointed with the lack of detail. I only bought it because it had a horse :-) So rad!
Desthagirion on August 7th, 2017 06:06 pm (UTC)
I'm very impressed with these too. Never ever have I paid attention to board games until this one as it was the only way to get these characters as figures. Ha, that's great. Definitely what I did here just for these figures.

Ok sure. I think you'll like it. It's rather funny. I love the news flashes and the neat icons you unlock under abilities and transmissions.

The pinkies are nicely made. One of my least fave to fight in the game as I can never get behind to to shoot them in their weakness. I hate monsters that rush you which is why I quickly learned to hate Hell knights. They give you no room to breath or think and they're so ugly. Seems wrong anything that big should move that fast. So pairing Bologoth with a pinkie as his dog makes them a deadly duo. Yes those stupid zombies really are redundant and uneccesary. They could have added other better monsters. Summoners are so under rated you rarely see them in anything.
