    Ok, you wonderful folks did it. I'm now a member of your community. All because of the close to 87000 comments. It will be fun talking with you all, and painting up our goodies together.

    This is Pegaso's 54mm Irish Knight. The Celtic cross was included in the all metal kit. This is one of my older pieces and was painted in the BR era (before Reaper) using a combination of Andrea and Vallejo paints. The white hart on the shield was drawn in, then painted. Enjoy, Glen

    Here's another off the table. I painted this for someone at one of our local game stores. His Crusader army is blue and white with black and green accents, so I painted the creature with that in mind. The basing was kept relatively simple, as he has a particular shade of static grass that is on all the bases, so he can add that as he sees fit. The insignia on the flank is also a constant across all this pieces. I like the design he came up with! The white flesh was an interesting experiment--I based with a cool white (RMS Ghost White), shaded with a warm gray (Vallejo Gray Green) and added selected areas of RMS Rosy with a touch of RMS Tanned Skin try and added an additional bit of warmth and color variation to all that white. Thanks once again for the input from my stable of forum advisors on the color suggestions/ideas on this model. As always, critiques and comments welcome!

    Okay, I finally showed Husband everything that I wanted to get, and how much we're in for. He got the pained look on his face again. I pointed out that I have not purchased any new clothes, makeup or beauty products for the last several months (I used to sell makeup/beauty products and have promised to use up the things I bought for myself); I'm really rather low-maintenance. He sighed and said that he'd be happier if we dropped a thing or two, but said that I could get them if I wanted to. After much consideration, I still dropped the Heroes and Villains (he said we don't really need a gelatinous cube; I beg to differ) to make him happy (though again, I plan on adding those back on when I hopefully get a job). So, I'm reasonably happy, and he's reasonably happy (given that all this time he's thought we were just getting the core...), so overall win for both of us! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    So, I have two very hard working children that are exceedingly well behaved and enjoy doing house and yard work, and entertaining. The oldest will also tutor your preschooler. They are available for rent.

    Wooooooooooh, this has been such a ride!!!!! I'd like to give a big thank you shout-out to all the Reaper folks for making this such a crazy fun awesome Kickstarter, and to all the forumites for kicking the excitement up to 11!! I didn't join the forums until after KS 1 had finished (it was literally because of the forum tag reward that I decided to come check it out!), so I seriously missed out on all of this last time! I think the final word on the matter, though, is that this whole experience has earned: Huzzah!!!!!!!!! --OneBoot :D :D :D

More pretty bones to paint! Perfect! They're just what I wanted! Silly Willpower. Now to move all my points to Craft:Paint Bones....

    I showed the stuff to my daughter and she "Squeed!" and then I showed her how big some of these would be. She then demanded to have me start teaching her to paint, and tried to call dibs on Khanjira. So I got two.

    I was done, man. "That's it," I said. "I've raised my pledge twice from my proposed maximum opening bid," I said. "I'm in almost double what I was last time," I said. "If I add any more, it'll be after the Kickstarter," I said. ...WHELP I WASN'T USING THIS FIFTY DOLLARS ANYWAY *THROWS WALLET AT REAPER* I'll be over in the corner singing "I only wanna be with you" and stroking a picture of DDS2 if you need me...

    This just in!!! We bring you the (probably) Final OneBoot Report! (though I reserve the right to do another before the end if I so choose!) ONEBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!!!! Some important highlights: ~~~~~~~ Reaper Miniatures about 8 hours ago I don't remember who asked (apologies), but the basilisk and dracolisk are both works-in-progress and not finished sculpts. ~~~~~~~~~ Reaper Miniatures about 8 hours ago @Lawrence - many of the new sculpts from this Kickstarter might also be made in metal. The larger a figure is, the less likely it is to also appear in metal. Based on our experiences with the last Kickstarter figures, we're doing our best to customize the plastic mix for each figure as necessary for the best appearance and function of thin or structural support parts. ~~~~~~~~~ Reaper Miniatures about 9 hours ago @Crimson - I believe the minotaur lord fits on a 3" base. ~~~~~~~ Reaper Miniatures about 9 hours ago @Adam - the flying saucer has landing gear. ~~~~~~~~ Reaper Miniatures about 9 hours ago The price to join after Kickstarter via the pledge manager will be higher. Prices will remain the same for everyone who has pledged through the Kickstarter but chooses to add on additional items later through the pledge manager. ~~~~~~~~ Reaper Miniatures about 10 hours ago The water elemental is comparable in size to the large fire elemental from the first Kickstarter. ~~~~~~~~ Bane172 3 minutes ago @Bryan With the Kahnjira. Ive heard the estimate for his weight is around 4 pounds Is that how much he weighs as a green? whats the weight difference between bones and greens? and could you give an estimate on how much he will cost retail? Bryan Stiltz 1 minute ago @Bane - We estimate $75-95 Retail. The 4lb weight is in Bonesium, The green was over 7 lbs. ~~~~~~~~ Corporea about 4 hours ago Any word on the appearance of Tiamat? Reaper Miniatures about 4 hours ago @Corporea - highly unlikely for this KS. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I looked at the pic of C'thulhu checking out Khanjira and I have to say that's the scariest episode of The Dating Game ever.

    This is the (6th) completed vignette as listed on my (WIP) forum of fantasy vignette projects posted on Oct. 2, 2013. VIGNETTE TITLE...Sexy Space Girl On Red Planet... FIGURE...REAPER (# 50150)...Betty, Space Heroine... NOTE...I tried to make the vignette as barren as possible with the sexy space vixen standing on the barren rocky surface of the " red planet "...I did my best to portray/depict the martian dust on her black boots...but otherwise not too much wear on her hot pink suit. Hope that you like it. Catdancer...

    This little guy gaven me the chance to work on improving my skin. I'm not sure if I technically improved, but he isn't blotchy like my previous models. I like it, this was what I wanted my Pureblood Warpwolf to look like. Any tips on skin would be appreciated. I tried a base coat, then some medium highlights, then some very watered down brighter highlights applied over and over again on top of the medium and base coats. I think my pictures taking ability is improving too. I may go back and edit all my previous posts. Hope you enjoy :)

    Back when I was a wee young-in my Uncle gave us jelly beans and little flavored beverages, each did something random. Some were good, some were bad. If he found out you ate a jelly bean without announcing it (just because it was there), he applied all the effects to your character as soon as he noticed. I believe my character became flying, cursed, got healed, took damage and turned green all at once. I've never been one to leave candy just sitting there.

    Picture link is broken. Crom on his throne! CROM ON HIS THRONE!!!! Just got up a little while ago, and OH STARS THOSE RUINS!!! I have to add those. It's a no-brainer. $35 for ALL THAT?!?!? *sigh* This does mean that I'll have to drop Expansion #2, though. *cries and kisses it goodbye* Hopefully I'll be able to add it back in later! This puts us at a total of $220 (I threw the Heroes and Villains back in to help ease the hurt from letting CE #2 go, <3 those bases!). I'm going to sing a sad song to Husband about how hard I tried to keep it to $200 (I really did, actually), but can't argue with a $35 kit that will end up retailing for around $100. I think $220 will be an easier number to swallow than $270, and after weighing my desire for Terrasque + Ruins set against what I liked in CE #2, well, the big guys won out. I've been among those rooting for Gauth to show up, but I think that Nathavaar fills that need nicely. She's gorgeous!!! Such a beautiful, active, threatening pose, and once again those dynamic wings are incredible!! My heart is racing, this is so incredibly exciting! And there's still 4 hours to go!! I'm thinking that 3.14 million is not only possible, we might even beat it!! Man, this is even better than going on a bunch of roller coasters! Oh, and thank you so much to you brave souls still willing to swim in the currents of the KS comments and pull out treasures to share here; it makes me feel better about not being up to doing a digest at this point. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I thought this at first, too. I also thought "an butt" was a forum in-joke. Funny thing is, though, that once I learned what the replacement words were I actually just start typing those in. I also created a D&D monster, which I have not yet had time or place to use, which uses a gibber ability to cause rage. Said monster is the Anwoofingbutt. It just sort of sits on a perch and shouts at people until they get upset, then when they attack it throws poisoned poop.

    Been away for the afternoon. Did I miss much? ... (Okay, I had not been a part of the Terrasque request brigade, but my youngest just made such happy squeaky noises upon seeing it that I have pledged for it as well. And I am honestly glad for everyone who was hoping so fervently that Reaper would offer one.)

    And now to reply to some things that were like umpteen pages ago: @buglips - Ah...as tempting as ALL THE BONES is, I think I'll have to pass on your generous offer. I AM married to the Witch-king of Angmar, Lord of the Ringwraiths, after all, and since you're the coolest goblin I know, I really don't want to be responsible for your untimely demise/separation from your immortal soul. @Matrissa - I'm waiting impatiently for the forums to decide I've learned my lesson and give me back my 'liking' privileges. I WANT TO LIKE ALL THE THINGS, DARN IT!!!!!! @buglips - Okay, after seeing your Hail, Cobra! comics, I bow to your superior comic-making abilities. @Everyone - Sorry guys, but you're on your own for the last 24 hours as far as digests go. I simply can't keep up, so I'm gonna kick back and relax with some peppermint patties and my shiny new paints I just got from Reaper and enjoy the ride along with y'all. *raises cup of hot chocolate in a toast* TO REAPER! TO REAPER AND THEIR SHINIES! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I love collaborations! All of the figures are amazing! Thanks to all of the sculptors who've worked on this whole project! You all are appreciated and should be proud! Agreed! And it's neat to know they're all from different people! That is just awesome! I'm so excited!! =D

    I know, working on it. Bryan edited the images and it broke things, but he is now swamped and I'm not sure I'm going to get it from him before close of KS... I don't believe this to be accurate... you are not responsible for the posting of other people. Hey, did yall know that the adventuring party is a mix of sculptors? Fighter was sculpted by Bobby Jackson, the archer is a Werner Klocke, rogue by Gene Van Horne, Jason Wiebe did the cleric and the mage is Bob Ridolfi. Julie Guthrie is the genius behind the dragon. Bob Ridolfi is also responsible for the ruins.

    the adventurers are not attached to the ruins. there are no assigned places for them. they are quite interchangeable with any of Reaper's figures. (I'm sitting next to Bryan and Matt as they handle updating KS comments and other social media and that kind of stuff. I'm happy to answer what I can over here. Just be patient with me, there is a lot happening in the room...)
