    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Does that mean we should start calling you four eyes?

    Ron replied to my question about the price. $25 US for the resin mini of Johan Rumbleguts!

    Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

    It’s interesting to see how much has changed since Stonehaven first Dwarf kickstarter and this one. Obviously this has a lot fewer backers but there’s also very little commenting going on in the kickstarter comments section. The first KS had a very lively and interactive comments area that gave Mike a lot of feedback and ideas which he listened to and acted upon which I think helped him produce more interesting minis.

    Ron and Ed just had a short video. Metals are sold out. Limited number of resins, 32 they said, will be going up for sale Wednesday the 19th at 8:00pm CST. They didn’t say a price though. And they did mention that Jason was doing better. So Yay for that!

    So. Weeble skeletons then?

    Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

    More greens. Not sure how I feel about these. Upper left looks a lot like a traditional garden gnome. Upper right. Bow placement is just...odd. Feel the urge to modify it to the handle of a power jackhammer. Mid left. Looks okay. Nothing special. Mid right. My favourite of the five. Bottom. If you can’t say anything nice...

    Might want to add @Reaper Ron on that question too.

    Caravan to Reapercon 2019

    Each year I drive to visit my family in Alberta. It’s about a 12 hour drive each way. I can’t see myself doing that three days in a row, then run around Reapercon for four or five days, then driving back again. What about trains? Wonder if they’d be cheaper than flying those longer distances.

    Doom minis reissued

    I don’t know but I do know that Bethesda was selling them at their booth at Pax Prime around that time. No idea though if that was new stock or old stock they dug up somewhere.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Randomness XV: All your Stroopwaffle are belong to us. Also... Luft.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Randomness XV: There and back again. (But not before we wander off topic for a while)
  12. Those are two excellent questions.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I don’t Tweet. Too many twits. Present company excepted of course.

    Dreamforge Games - Current State of Things

    If the discussion here is going from the general state of the company in question to their upcoming kickstarter then I’ll be locking down this thread. Cause, y’know, we have a subforum for that.

    That makes me sad. Mantics early forums were a fun place with some great folks. Reminds me a lot of this place. Even a few auld Mantic forumites are here. I do keep an eye on Mantic through their Facebook pages. And through their kickstarters. Fun Fact. When Mantic started their original forums I was asked to be a Moderator and stayed on as one through several forum changes. Haven’t been one there for a few years now but for a while I was doing double Mod duty when Reaper asked me to Mod here.
  16. Don’t have a tree topper but if I did I would like it to be this one from Hallmark. (it changes colour too) For the first time ever I did not place a Reaper order over Halloween and again for the first time ever wasn’t going to place one for the Twelve Days promo either, until Reaper announced the fundraiser and I figured in for a penny, in for a dwarf, a bunch of halflings, a brain in a jar, and a half dozen or so assorted other minis.

    12 Days of Reaper...Get ready for the madness?

    Stocking requires a minimum $65 US order. My qualifying order from this afternoon says I’m getting one.
  18. Nope. If it was me I’d have run the kickstarter for some of the character minis only, so see what the popularity and demand for them was like and to establish a history of being able to provide a quality product in a timely and reasonable fashion. Then build on that with a later kickstarter for the big pieces if the initial response warrants it. From the concept sketches, it’s hard to tell if the minis will be cartoony or more “realistic”. From the bunny green they’ve shown, it looks like cartoony. From other examples they’ve shown of his work, I don’t think the sculptor has the skills for anthropomorphic animals that the Oathsworn or Darksword sculptors have. So, nope.

    I really hope the money raised will be enough to help Mr.Weibe out. Anyway, put my order in for one.
  22. Have to say I’m quite liking some of these halflings: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/halflings-and-fantasy-friends?ref=project_build# Just a few pics of some of the minis and concepts. A lot more are on the kickstarter site. Curiously, no women folk though.
  23. Nice work but I can’t help but feel you’ve chosen the wrong colours.

    Wonderful looking sculpt for a wonderful cause.

    Halflings and fantasy friends. By TTCombat

    I’m worried this has passed the point of: ”Maybe it’s time you stopped adding more and more to the Kickstarter and instead start double checking on your plans for manufacturing and fulfilling everything you’ve already promised to your backers before you get in over your head.” Cause that can happen.
