    StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

    And it's done and Funded! Didnt quite reach the owl child archer but Stonehaven did sneak in a $34,000 goal that I didn't even see till after the kickstarter ended. I quite like him, but then Mikes mechanists are some of my favourites in StoneHavens lines.

    Midlam Miniatures Mischief of Rats

    Looks good. I just activated the Live Tag.
  3. I've backed a previous Blackwater Gulch kickstarter and been pleased with what I received.

    StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

    Wow. Time sure flew by for this kickstarter. Just over 24 hours left and they've unveiled their newest stretch goal. When we reach $35,000 the Owlfolk Child Archer will be added to the Completionist 2018 reward and made available to be added to your reward as a single mini($3.00).

    Atlantis Miniatures Ogres

    These look interesting. The name seems vaguely familiar but I can't visualize their earlier minis. I'll have to look up their previous projects.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    I had a peek through the creators comments. I now suspect they/he/she must be politicians because of their skill in answering questions while not providing any real info. I've copy and pasted a few examples below. I had to edit one quote, and that was due to profanity. "We use the term international because our operations or activities (as individuals of course) span over 4 countries. Our nationalities shouldn't matter. Or should they?" "For financial overview, our estimates are kinda rough since we have a pretty good idea how much is it gonna cost us to deliver you high quality products but thats just about it for now. At this point that's all we can share with you. 2. Cant tell you who but both our manufactures are from China. 3. We do have samples; Some 3d printed and perfected by hand or some plastic ones made. you will get to see them in action very soon 4. As mentioned earlier; we are just a bunch of nerds and geeks who love board games and video games. We love mass effect and Witcher universe and can quote Lord of the Rings like anything. We havent done anything in the industry as of now and this is our first venture where we took a few loans to get this thing developed which we really really are passionate about. All we need is your support. We will make mistakes but with your help will correct them. 5. Rulebook will be shared before the end of the campaign, dont worry. 6. The only Drake we care about is Nathan Drake from Uncharted universe and no connected to the drake projects on KS whatsoever. Hope that helped." "To be honest, we really havent done much work in this industry except play **** ton of video games and board games. We really are a bunch of uber nerds and geeks obsessed with folk lore and mythological stuff and really wanted to create something. What you are seeing is the labor of our love."

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I was wondering if there'd be issues with the way they roll but they look like a pretty well balanced party to me.

    Just wanted to add that Kevin confirmed my shipment will be going out at the end of the week.
  9. I wasn't aware the scientific community had made an announcement that dinosaurs are now believed to have been covered in glitter.

    A first post -

    Nice colour choices for the dragon. A very fantastical piece! A congratulations on a successful delurking!

    Cthulhu: Death May Die

    With that I bow to your greater willpower.

    Thanks Kevin. Message sent.

    Overturn Rising Sands

    My own personal view. -The creators say nothing about themselves other than they are "professionals". -No history of having ever produced, well, anything. Not games, not minis. -Overly ambitious for a first project. Almost a too good to be true deal kind of a feel about it when looking at what other companies have offered on kickstarter recently. -Canadian based. Other Canadian kickstarters have proven very susceptible to fluctuations in exchange rates and shipping costs. I'm not saying not to back. Just saying to be aware of all the possibilities if you do.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I'll be visiting my niece and her parents in a few weeks. She's the one I introduced to mini painting last year. She has a couple of friends who also want to try painting. Plus I've been told they all want to learn to play D&D and I've been volunteered to DM them. Now none of this is a sure thing, as it's summer after all and people's plans change, but I have to prepare as if it is. I've already come up with the bright idea of going through my core set minis from the first two Bones kickstarters and pulling out those that can be used as PC's, letting the kids choose the ones they want to paint, and those will be their characters. I have my original AD&D books, and my collection of most of the original modules, but I can't find my blank character sheets. I don't have a printer, so online printouts won't help me, but does anyone know how close the 5th ed character sheets are to AD&D? I've seen them in stores but there's little useful info on the package. I'm also struggling a bit trying to figure out which module to put them through. I've no idea how many sessions we might have plus I'm more than a bit rusty.

    Still haven't received a tracking notice. As of 3 days ago there were still 42 unpainted shipments to be packaged up and sent out according to the kickstarter comments. Looks like I'll be one of the last of the unpainted.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Bones 3 was the first time I passed on a core set. To be honest, I was expecting to pass on this one too... until Reaper unveiled it. It hit so many of my buttons I had to pledge for it.

    Templar's Forge: Miercendise

    It's not.

    StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

    Well okay. The just unveiled dwarven musician is a bit more fanciful.

    StoneHaven Adventurers 2018

    I hear you. A lot of the sculpts aren't as imaginative or as fanciful as I've come to expect from StoneHaven.

    Kickstarter Forum Posting Guidelines

    Yes there is. It's not a crowdfunding platform. It's a retailers pre-order system. They say exactly that on their page. Posting links to other retailers sites is against Reapers forum rules.
  21. The Kickstarter is live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1138228733/moonstone-fantasy-skirmish-game/description This one is for a skirmish game featuring their wonderfully fantastical minis many of which are available in either metal or resin.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    And that has happened here. Unfortunately bringing up the same point over and over and over again is just leading to frustration both to those with a concern and those who want to see the conversation move on, which is just inviting some uncivil responses. So that's been stopped. If Reaper makes a statement about their design on the Frost Giants I would expect the conversation here to continue with a civil discussion at that time. In the meantime there's literally hundreds of other miniatures to be discussed. Like when are we going to see the base for that barge.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    And in keeping with that sentiment several posts have been removed including those rehashing the original concerns as well as some sarcastic responses. At this point I'd suggest using the June 29th LiveStream event for bringing up any legitimate miniature concerns directly to Reaper. And please no more sarcastic posts here about others concerns over Reapers design decisions. Such posts will be removed.
