Thank you Reaper peeps for all the work you put into this. I am glad you gave us the opportunity to help support you guys, and get a fantastic deal on your product to boot.

 

Thank you to all the guys here on the forums who have been entertaining me in between my own obessive hitting of F5. You guys are a riot, and I hope to see more of you guys around. (I'll stick around too this time... I'm working on the karmic debt that kept me away from the forums. )

 

And Thank you to everyone who supported this, we all made out like bandits because of each others support. ::D:

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.

I had a similar reaction when I saw Cthulhu. :)

Same here.

And I've failed my sanity check.

Man, what a ride!!! In the end I had 2 people at work checking their phones for updates as well as my wife at home sending me texts. The funniest thing was that none of those people are into miniatures at all! I was getting giddy updates all day from them - it was crazy!

 

I wasn't able to add to my pledge but fully plan to add an extra $20 for Kaladrax and Cthulhu when the Pledge Manager comes online. Really glad that didn't make the difference (could you imagine - missing the goal by $20??!!).

 

I do have to wonder - what was the next goal?.....

And now let us all have a moment of silence for the 192 Skeletons, 6 Zombies, 330 Ghasts, 16 Ghouls, 17 Spectres, 48 Wraiths, 121 Ghosts, 32 Mummies (You poor bastards, so close!) and perhaps even the 155 Liche-Level Sophie fanatics who chose succubus-lust over sheer volume of lovely plastic. We can only hope these tragic 900-odd brothers and sisters come to their senses and beg, borrow or steal the money needed to Vamp up when the RPM launches

 

And of course the countless thousands who clicked too late and were forever lost to us.

 

May Bryan have mercy on their checkbooks.

Congrats to everyone involved!

 

I was sitting in the store with one of my customers doing dueling refreshes, him on his iPad, me on my laptop.

 

I even tried to up my pledge a couple of minutes out (which I wasn't going to do at work), but I couldn't get in to KS. My heart dropped when I finally got in with less than 30 seconds left and it looked like we were less than $20 short (I was going to up my order by $40). Then KS crashed again and I thought we missed it.

 

But then I saw the fb post that we made the Cthulhu and was relieved...

 

Now, who do I have to bribe to get my minis before March?

I am so excited for this. Roll on 2013. Anyway, I tried to roughly divy up what I'll be getting by genre/type (I'm not quite getting everything, actually, but most things). Couldn't seem to upload it larger, and I'm sure others could do a better job of it than me, but it filled a bones craving for me for a bit.

Man, with all these recent posts, I feel like I got out really cheap at $250. I don't even know what I'm getting for that. I just bumped my pledge to what I felt I could spare whilst still staying married, figure I'll make the decision about what I actually get when the survey comes out. Or let my kids.

Don't feel too bad - that is about where I stopped. That is pretty much my game budget for the next 6 months too. I don't care though - I managed to get my wife very excited about this deal when she saw the sheer volume of minis I'll be getting and how many of them are top quality female figures as well.

I'm sorry I missed the endgames, but I was at my Saturday D&D game having an epic beatdown. Still, it sounds like it was a harrowing experiance.

      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.
