From the campaign:

Giant rats are now unlocked! Gods know what these Rats have been eating, in order to grow so big. But it was certainly high in protein!

    Hey 4ton, I hope you’ve looked at this KS for Heroquest bits.

      lol, yeah, I’ve been following this since the pre-campaign at Ye Olde Inn. I’m trying to budget out what I want/need but I worked out that the base furniture alone is ~35 gold. That doesn’t include the doors or traps or any of the other fun stuff.. just the furniture itself. I’m also trying to decide if I should pick and choose, allowing for the stuff I already have or just go with all Zealot stuff. Decisions decisions..
      I really like that Thantos (the guy running Zealot) is doing outside goals. He said he plans on a painting competition of dungeon-based heroes and a few other things for stretch goals.

        I’d mentioned blue board in another of my replies to you, but if you need to save money on any of this stuff then check this out. Random example, but it shows what someone accomplished on their first try using a ballpoint pen on blue board. You can make nearly anything, and I expect you are quite handy with a pen.

          I’ve seen similar with styrene straight out of a dvd player but I really like the finish on that. I’ll read it more closely in a bit to figure out exactly what this material is since I really do like the look of it and it would be exceptionally easy to print a template and imprint over it and then elaborate with freehand. Thanks for sharing that 🙂

            It’s just sheet extruded polystyrene foam board insulation (aka blue board) from the hardware store. I’d be surprised if you don’t use it already. Most gamers I know have been using it for making hills and such for decades, but I only caught on to using a ballpoint pen as a stylus with it fairly recently. It is fantastic. I drew in cobblestones for my Mordheim set-up in my doctor’s waiting room.

            Ah, I’ll have to dig around to see if I can find some that thin. I do know what you’re talking about though so according to GI Joe half the battle’s already done!
