Well, that was disappointing. Only $3.5 million dollars?! Man, we barely scraped past the minimum to get this thing funded.

 

Oh, wait… hold on… just a second… I might be off by a few…

 

…orders of magnitude.

 

In all seriousness, congrats and thanks to the busy beavers at Reaper who suffered through the last month.

 

 

 

So…

 

 

Is it March yet?

My favorite reveal for this entire kickstarter was the final Cthulhu figure. I immediately pledged extra to get him as well as the mythos monster upon seeing him. :) I've not been reading H.P. Lovecraft for very long now, but he is by far my absolute favorite author. I hope to get to be able to use these guys in a Call of Cthulhu game I run soon. :) Thank you Reaper.

My vacation just haaaaad to end today. I spent all mornign at work sneaking peaks at the KS page on my phone...it crashed my pathetic little android version of firefox more often than not. Surprisingly the default android prowser was robust enough to let me at least glimpse the totals now and then before crashing back to the home screen. This was a hell of a long day. I got home just in time to see what looked like us failing to meet the last goal by $26 wbile Kickstarter choked and floundered

Epic finish. This is not just a KS, it is legend. Gamers will be talking for years as to how Cthulhu brought down both the Reaper server and the KS servers in the finale bringing about mass panic to those trying to squeeze in that last upgrade/vampire. Psychology grad students and marketers will be analyzing the 45000+ comments and pledge pattern data for years to come.

 

Outstanding job, congrats, and many thanks to the folks at Reaper who made this happen. You all know how to put on a show ! Looking forward to those minis in March. Cthulhu will give new meaning to March Madness no doubt.

As soon as I saw Cthulhu, I almost wet my pants not only upped my pledge to cover him, I upped it enough to cover another case. Just to help make sure we got Cthulhu. My final pledge: $440. My final haul:

 

Vampire Level

+ Cases (2)

+ Nethyrmaul

+ Undead Paint Set

+ Marine Paint Set

+ Forces of Nature

+ Demons

+ Hydra

+ Steampunk Dragon

+ Cthulu

+ Ebonwraith

+ Fire Giant King & Queen

+ Fire Giant Warriors x2

+ Frost Wyrm

+ Jabberwock

+ Kaladrax Reborn

+ Mythos Monsters

+ Pathfinder Dragon

+ Spider Centaurs

+ Undead Giant

+ Vermin x2

+ We Be Goblins

+ Deep Dwellers

+ Fire It Up! x2

+ Urban Legends Sophie Upgrade

 

309 miniatures, 24 bottles of paint, and 2 cases.

 

That works out to $1.31 per miniature/paint/case.

 

Christ. This is quite possibly the best purchase I've ever made.

I was working & there was no way I could change my pledge, but since I have 30 days to add to it I think I will get everything I want (plus I'm ditching Sophie for more big mini's)

my total was:

Vampire level

all 4 paint sets (right now I have no paints.)

Case

Ebonwrath

Deathsleet

Clockwork Dragon

Pathfinder Dragon

Nethyrmaul

 

For a grand total of $267.00

 

roughly $.90 a item. Beats any damn sale my wife has EVER found!!!!!

      I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb.
       
      First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color.
      Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head.
      Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage.
       
      Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

      I love this figure.
      Not so much the bendy weapons, but I straightened them out.
      They have bent back a little (Sword).

      I did a WIP on him.  Thanks for the encouragement along the way.
      http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/80720-kord-the-destroyer-bones/
       
      He is another for our Reign of Winter Adventure Path.  My DM said "Vikings."  Kord has that vibe for sure.
       

       
      I tried to paint the base like grass.
      The hardest part was the nmm on the axe, and trying to get the runes to show up on the sword.  It's a very irregular axe shape, so it was tough to figure out how to do it.
      My green stuff patch job on the wolf pelt was not the greatest, but it is decent enough camouflage.
      The second-hardest part of the figure to me was figuring out what parts of the pelt were what.  What is tail? What are legs?  I did my best.
      Overall, I'm pleased with him.  He seems like such a bad-a$$.
      As for the pics, iPhone seems to be good for far away, but really "blobby" for up close.  Maybe it is suffering from zoom.
      C&C Welcome.

      First up is Terezinya, Bonepander Wizard (Reaper 77173).  She had been sitting on my paint desk partially painted for so long that her base got dusty, oops.  She always gave me a pirate wibe, hence the plank base.




      Nienna, Female Elf Ranger (Reaper 77091) is another one that sat partially painted for a really long time.  All that green, how do I paint all her knickknacks in an interesting way without making her stand out in forest?  Finally just brute forced it to get her done.


       
      Trista, the White Wolf (Reaper 77094), she didn't languish as long as the other two, but like normal I got stuck on deciding on colors for all the details.  But with 3 off the desk of shame I can start on something new!

      Here are 2 of the pin-up babes from Wargamer LLC's kickstarter Hot & Dangerous.  
       
      First up Lagertha the Shieldmaiden.  I love how her cloak turned out.  Not so happy with the face, it look pretty terrible in the photos, its not so bad in hand.  I need to get better at thinning my paints I think.




       
      Rosie the Bowman (the official name).  I did not like the concept art at all, but the finished sculpt turned out great.  I love how she has a lot of spunk.
