I know some of you were looking for nice detailed pictures of the minis. I took some, but they were promptly declined when I tried to submit them to the main gallery. For those of you that are interested, I've uploaded them to my personal gallery instead.

EDIT: I've now added them to this post as well.





















EDIT: So it looks like the geekmods approved the Ashardalon picture and the female heroes for the main gallery. I'll just leave it at that.

Thank you! I was always curious as to what the figures looked like in this game.

Next time try putting cleavage in each of the pictures. That will get you front page!

It's hard to get the front page when you can't even get in the main gallery. soblue

While those are nice minis, I'm guessing that may have fallen under the "don't submit photos of every component of the game" style of rejection.

(But I never geekmod, so I know nothing )

Yeah, but it's not like anyone could print out my photos and have reasonable facsimiles of the actual minis.

Some people just want to know exactly how detailed the minis that come with a game are before they decide whether to purchase it or not - and this is something they have every right to know. My pictures do nothing but show this and I don't see the harm in it. But whatever, they were declined and that's that. I'm not hard to get along with and will gladly bow to the whims of my BGG admin overlords. goo

In any case, this was the message I got with the rejections:

Quote:
We're sorry that we couldn't use the recent image that you uploaded to BGG related to Dungeons & Dragons: Wrath of Ashardalon Board Game, and it was removed it from the system.

Reasons:
100%

Wow. That's one hell of a good reason.

I took part in the geekmodding of your pictures and voted to accept them. I'm new to it, so I really don't understand why your excellent pictures were declined. Sorry.

Well, while the pictures are fine and very useful for people making up their mind right now about getting the game, I am pretty sure that they'll have been rejected for 'glare' and some being a bit blurry. The problem with the game galleries is once pictures are up, they don't get deleted once replaced by better pictures, so without wishing to denigrate your effort or genuine service to the community interested in the game, I am afraid I would probably have voted to reject most of them too. Posting with a link to your personal gallery is a great service to those of us eager to see what the figures are going to look like though, so thanks.

As requested by a few of you, I've added pictures of the Hero minis to my gallery (and now also to this post).

I also took Shnar's hint and uploaded some key Hero pictures to the game's main gallery.

I did not reject them and the pictures are really nice, but I probably would have rejected them due to this rule for the game gallery:
Quote:
Please do NOT submit individual images for every mini or every card in a minis heavy or card heavy game.

I think using your personal gallery (you could even link all of them in this thread) is a good solution, so please stop ranting about the GeekMods and enjoy the game.
