Quoted from lpeters82:
Do you have a 3rd?
nope, just those 2
Would you guys voting for Replay T1 be okay with this? I don't know why but that I dislike that random hexagon in the center.
I agree with whysnow. I have soo many tokens with that back already. The paw is better in my mind.
I'm going to PM the few that haven't voted. Realistically it's looking like the only two in the running are "Replay" and "Paw".
Paw: lpeters82, Fortytwo
Replay Only: Whysnow, bangerjay, xeneize, trilogybeer
I’m a little worried what the symbols mean. Maybbe a religious reference.
Bug quick work this into the legend.
So if we're going with that random design on the back I think I'll try to work it into the LIONMAN! I think that will help me justify that design. Something like this:
Not trying (ok maybe I am) to sway the LIONMAN paw vote, but here is a link to an actual LIONMAN paw print http://hesc.co.za/2015/07/a-guide-to-tracking-animals-in-the-wild/ Looks pretty close to me...
Alright we've officially put down $100 to start the fabrication process for the LIONMAN tokens. I will post the proof from the artist at Hoffman Mint. I'm excited and also a bit nervous. I hope they are able to create something that reflects our vision.
This is what was sent to the artist. With the T1 as the back. They do have some concerns about the level of detail, which is why I'm nervous. We would have the option of doing a sample order of 25 coins for $25, but at that point we'd also be out the $195 for the creation of the die. As of right now I've asked them to create their proof, which is the $100 commitment. Once we have that we'll be able to decide if we want to proceed with the creation of the die, basically an extra $95, plus we could do an order of 25 for $25 or just go for the 5000.
PS: I've been on the phone with them three times already today. They keep asking me about the detail I'm expecting and I keep saying I want it to be a recognizable figure. If it's not going to be a recognizable figure, I'd just assume cutting my loses. Then when they explain the detail loss to expect it's like, "The eyes are going to be solid." I guess to me that's minor, but again I just really don't know what to expect.
Whoa Jay! Have you’ve been working out or what! Just saw you on the Geico commercial! Lionman does the body good!
I needed some art for my gameroom, so I used photoshop on an existing pinball poster to create a custom piece. Hopefully it will match the forthcoming tokens.
Quoted from Whysnow:
so the "Pin-Fury" on the coins is specifically for your tournament?
Quoted from lpeters82:
No real reason. I think it balances where the word "Liberty" is on a quarter. Although I think it sounds like a cool name for a tournament with a tie back to Swords of Fury. Perhaps if I start hosing a local tournament for friends it will be Pin-Fury! That way I can create some posters. LIONMAN!
There is no pin-fury on the coins. The print was too small, but our discussion about what it meant is what gave me the idea to create the LIONMAN! poster. I just decided that I didn't really need to wait for an actual tournament.
Edit: Plus the event in the poster was in 1982, so...
Yeah, I considered redoing it in a larger font but some of the others also asked if we could not include the "In LIONMAN We Trust". Given that, I figured it would be simpler to just drop it.
LIONMAN lionwoman and your happy minstrels. Behold a video showing converting a boring quarter mech to work with LIONMAN tokens.
