For overall “wow factor” Scythe” is still a soft spot for me as it was my introduction to KS and “designer games.”
But “Abyss” was the first game I bought on box art alone. I knew nothing of the game but loved the cover!

I think it does a good job, but it’s not the best 4x game out there.

Nicely done! One of the better painted set of Scythe miniatures.
Oddly enough after painting lots of miniatures for tabletop gaming I have yet to paint a miniature for a boardgame.

Great collection and you dont have the massively overrated games: Scythe and Terraforming Mars. Looks good to me.
I was in a similar situation as you, Scythe was the first and heaviest game of our group and Root was the second. It worked great. I think you should go for it.
