I just received this and you promised a quality game and you delivered. Nice components, the minis are painted better than I had expected, and the elven book/box has to be seen to be believed. It's hard to believe that anyone could deliver on a $400 boardgame but you have. This is the gem in my collection. The only question left is where am I going to store this thing?
A few minor quibbles... there's the yellow characters who should be white and a few of the minis spears are bent... does anyone know the best way to fix this? Also, the combat dice are nice but nothing spectacular. The box hinge could be a bit of a problem.
And does anyone have any new card sleeve info?
Besides the sleeves, the only thing that could improve this is a freestanding Mt Doom resin mini...
Congratulations again to Nexus for this. Quality work. You've done right to the customer.
I will add to this as well. This is a fantastic production! Worth every penny. Many thanks to Roberto and the rest of the team for seeing this through properly!. The only negative is I have to now make a 2nd gaming table and a custom book shelf just to play and store this massive game.
I agree. For all of the whining and complaining that I did about the lengthy design/production time and the lack of updates, I am absolutely thrilled with the final product and I'm glad that they took their time to do it right. As soon as I opened the lid all of the anxiety of having spent $400 for a board game disappeared immediately!
This game is fabulous, as soon as you see the box your draw drops and it just gets better. I think the painting standard is superb for such a large volume. Anyone making negative comments about it are really nit-picking. All the other components are made to a very high standard. I really think I have got my money's worth and then some!
Could it have been better? At the price, for me the only thing that I would have liked is 4 crib sheets instead of 2 as most of my games will involve 3 or 4 players. That's just nit-picking by me now though
I hope this has been a success for Nexus and that other games of this quality will now be produced in the future.
