Board to Death: November

Just getting it done already.

The Sediton Wars: Battle for Alabaster base game set. Finished approximately a decade after I received it.
This Doom-lookalike game seemed like such a great title when it first launched on Kickstarter back in 2011 or 2012. It was one of the early games on there, and with the name of Mike McVey behind it, everyone was expecting something similar to what Games Workshop was putting out, at least when it came to the miniatures.

But, no, it was not.

The “premium plastic” turned out to be “restic” PVC and not the HIPS polystyrene everybody thought it would be.
Many long faces and much disappointment was to be seen all around.
Restic PVC is good for models, but is difficult to work with since it resists scraping of mouldlines, and needs superglue. The models came with lots of fiddly bits as well.
All the models were scaled slightly smaller than Warhammer models, which I’m sure added to the disappointment.
Then on top of this, many backers reported the game boards warping, the rules not being very good, and many of the second wave models were even smaller in scale than the rest, making it a bit of a shit show for Studio McVey.
At any rate, I have finished the 50 models from the base game set, most recently the 28 Strain models.

Also one of the XL models from Shadows of Brimstone: The Sand Kraken

Since it is over 15cm in length, it counts for the Board to Death on its own.
