    Good morning! Always love to see a Kickstarter email when I wake up.

    I think this is my favorite thing that I've drawn recently - this slump hit me hard but I'm coming back!! I only did a single color since my monitor colors are all wonky (this looks navy blue on the drawing monitor). It's not just the monitor settings, it's just wrong. And colorimeters are $$$$.

    Dear Future Me: You did it! You overcame the impossible and got caught up. Only 170 pages and 15 days worth of posting from when present-me (that's past-me to you) wrote this. Sure, two weeks ago you were only one week behind, but it's not your fault the fan on your laptop died. Keep going, you can get caught up...eventually.

    I wanted a little break from painting Ma'al Drakar, so I bought a clear Kyphrixis mini from the Bones 3 kickstarter. I saw it and liked that it was a clear translucent, and wanted to do a living ice dragon :) Had to come up with a mix of washes to get the color I wanted on the clear behind the white drybrush, but this was a fun hour paint up while waiting for stuff to dry on Drakar! Turned out really well I think!

    Ooooh another Small World Hero! And all that has to happen is that the sun come back after the eclipse... So by my calculations we have a 50-50 shot of getting this one unlocked!

    I've seen photos of this but I've never tried it. A leafy tree or bush will cast countless little pinhole shadows. Each of those tiny pinhole shadows will cast an eclipse shadow.

    For the hill giants especially, i'd like to see a female that mataches them. Which means probably not our standard of 'beauty' the reason being, i dislike it when a female of a species might as well a completely new species instead of a female of that actual species. So if the hill giants are lanky, large, muscles, and vaguely 'cave man' in facial appearance, i don't want some amazonian beautiful woman for their female version. It'd be like world of warcraft and the drastic, severe difference in gender between, say, the Troll male and the Troll female, where one looks like a monstrous humanoid and the other looks like a lovely human woman with blue skin and long canine teeth. I want female giants that match the theme of the males. If the giants are relatively human like (like the storm or fire), then sure, the female can be just as lovely. But the hill giants are NOT lovely by our standards, and i don't want to see some gorgeous beauty for a hill giant female...i want to see something that looks like she belongs in the hill giant species

    Pics from 96% over here! I had a Shade 14 welders lens I was using to view with (plus sunglasses) and it took great pics! Totality: Note: it's not the bright spot, that's a lens artifact. The actual image is above that. Cool pin-hole tree shadows! I was having a lot of fun :D Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I am so glad you have your notices. Such a nice thing to return from vacation to see. It was actually top of my to do list to check in with you about it.

    That does not surprise me. "Here, hold my mead." If we do not get a cat dragon, you need to think of one factor (or at least Reaper does): sale-ability. We fans here are a limited and rather specialized group of their customers. We want all the minis. Most of their customers want minis that they can correlate to a creature in game. The Roc actually correlates to 3 to 4 creatures in various games. When everyone started requesting it, I'm sure it was a no-brainer for Ron to have it made. The Cat Dragon on the other-hand, well you might be able to sub it in for something; it really depends on the design. Experienced GMs like novel creatures that they can use, but the vast majority want things that are easily identifiable on sight. This doesn't mean that we won't see a cat dragon, just that it likely isn't as easy a decision as the Roc was.

    Solar eclipse? Beagle getting his notification? Just one more omen and the world will be ending for sure!

    I don't know who Paula Patton is so my brain autocorrected to Paula Poundstone and that left me very, very confused both about Ron's hint and why Paula Poundstone would be starring in the Warcraft movie.

    Finished my hill giant, I used a smaller profile base because I'm planning on using him for gaming. My base game has a long way to go but I'm working on it lol.

    Nope. When they opened the PM they opened it for EVERYONE! The big difference between the KSers and those of us who joined after the fact is a 50% price hike. (Still worth it... ) My tracking code arrived an hour ago, while I was out shopping groceries on my way home.

    Correction: Gene requested to do the roc. Step 1 to getting your wishlist made in bones is learning to sculpt or draw. Step 2 is pointing at the other people who want it made

    Here are some Spelljammer-esque minis that I have been working on. They've been in my collection for many years, so I don't really remember, but I think a few of them are Reaper. Githyanki Rogue Cleric Oriental Sorcerer

    Yea, 83% didn't make for an exciting show. It was just like a cloudy day. Didn't have a welding hood or anything to look through, so I couldn't really see the actual occlusion, but meh. The lens flare in my pictures shows what the sun looked like at the time.

    I don't do happy, only smug. Multiple squees incoming. As an Englishman I need to get some excitable European or colonial to actually do the squeeing for me, being excitable in front of foreigners just isn't done. I just don't get it, the fact that I look down on people seems to turn them against me. No-one else's posts are half as interesting as mine (although Doug's are ,much more beautifully written) The tracker's all clear. Did you receive your email?

    Oh, I should make a post to bump this to the top so people can find it. Um... Today I acquired a chocolate cake! Also, ice cream for being a volunteer at the State fair. Also, the Shade 14 welding lenses I ordered for eclipse viewing arrived yesterday. Super excited! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    The xkcd comic about the eclipse is spot-on. https://m.xkcd.com/1877/ Left it as a link since there's a swear word in it. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    [Looks at legendary bird said to be large enough to blot out the sun.] It would be nice if that goal got reached today.

Experienced GMs like novel creatures that they can use, but the vast majority want things that are easily identifiable on sight. To add to TaleSpinner's comments: Another thing to keep in mind is that people have been asking for a Roc for at least a couple of years. There's been a persistent demand for it. The cat dragon, AFAIK, is just a meme that popped up shortly before the KS campaign launched. I would guess that Reaper was planning on producing a Roc when people first starting planning Bones IV. As for Dance of Death, you can probably expect it to become one of the final stretch goals in the last day or two of the campaign. It's a big, capstone kind of model, similar to the final stretch goals from previous campaigns.

    Roc till you drop (the victim) still think I will paint it as a phoenix. Oldest stepvixen an my girl stayed at the beach for swimming. Youngest and me went to see ruins and to the harbour. Had lunch and icecream. Just two more days. Actually one real one. the wednesday is travelday. Thursdaymorning I will retrieve Brutus. Days off till sept 4th. So far so good. Had a few brainweasels due to job and changes. But it's ok now.

    Possible Solution: GET TWO. No need to decide. ... if you want to paint one as Thunderbird..... get three. >.>

    what about a flaming Roc? Paint it in rust and red colors, with gold highlights, and it could pass as either depending on your needs?

    Lots of paint happened. Mostly finished up the hands, claws, and fur, touched up everything, and darklined it. Then I attached it to the big base and filled it with washers and putty, painting that dark. I'm having some camera issues, where close up the pictures are a bit grainy. I'll get that figured out before posting final pictures in Showoff. All I have left is to base it. Have a great night, Andy

    I don't think this whole issue with the female giants would even have occurred to me a few years ago. Now I have a five-year-old daughter who is getting interested in minis and gaming. I have no problem with her wanting to be/play a princess, I just want her to know and believe girls can kick butt too.

    Buffed combat-posed female giants of any type would be most welcome.

    Finished this just a little while ago. I had it primed for months and held off as I was actually a little intimidated at the thought of doing it. Then I did some of the other large Reaper Bones and this was actually really easy to do. I had to play with pinks and purples to get the guts the way that I wanted but in the end I think it turned out alright.

    Gene is supposedly adding an elephant skull to the base. It's a nice little call-out...

    Gene says 12" wingspan. Woot! Edit: Ron notes that this is a render of a digital sculpt, and the size is not currently set in stone. Could be a bit smaller, could be a bit bigger. We'll have to wait and see.
