I prefer to think of it as an egomaniacal 4 year old's sand box that the neighbors cat uses as a litter box from time to time. Fun to watch now and again - but I sure wouldn't want to go there.

Do you want to track non-English as well? Blogs? Right now we are getting 20-30 blog posts a day and a couple new forum threads as well. I am sure it is overwhelming already though, so I didn't want to clog things up with all the little stuff. I have been updating my list above with new links which look more active too - so there may well be a few on the bottom which you haven't seen yet.

I've tried but I can't actually keep up with as many as are out there alone, and there aren't enough people here to tackle them all! We're a smaller factory than most people think, in terms of personnel, even if our throughput of miniatures is massive.

What, you mean to tell me you aren't living it up in one of them big Dallas Skyscrapers with interns to tend to your every need? :;):

 

Right now I have over 1500 blog posts, 110 forum discussions, dozens of tweets and a couple "news" bits in 7 languages which I have logged. Most of them pretty well handle themselves (various people who make the post tend to it answering questions or pointing to the FAQ locations). That doesn't include retweets, Facebook posts or a lot of other stuff either.

 

However...if someone happens to have an account on "The Warhammer Forum" who feels like fielding this thread...please do so.

Otherwise I will go about registering over there.

I saw you've already added the Lost and the Damned forum and Old Scratch's forum. Did you already have Ye Olde inn?

I have that on my list - but since Bryan is drowning in work...I decided it better not to overwhelm him with it.

I made some posts on two Dutch forums. One is about tabletop gaming, warhammer and M:TG and such: Vlieg-er-uit, the other is a GuildWars 2 Dutch speaking community, but has an offtopic section for all sorts of games.

Just trying to get more people involved ;)

okay scratch the Vlieg-er-uit forum, as the owner didn't approve of topics on mini's being sold by other companies. Vlieg-er-uit is a games shop that sells mostly table-top boardgames and warhammer. A shame really.

      So question about two of the figures from the Pretty Deadly group from the Bones III core set. 
      #256 on core set picture (part number 77488) Skara, Female Skoli
      #258 on core set picture (part number 77490) Mara Frostblade, Antipaladin
       
      So on the core set picture, Skara seems to be holding a halberd(?) pointing down and her sword sheathed, but the mini I have, she is holding the halberd up and her sword in her opposite hand.
       
      and on Mara, the shield is the same more or less, but she has just a regular/short sword, not the bigger (possibly falchion?) weapon as in the picture.
       
      Did these two figures have a last minute change after the conceptual artwork was done?
       
      *****my crazy internet:( can a moderator please delete this duplicate post***** Sorry. Nothing to see here:)

      Long time lurker, second time poster, first time upload.
       
      Here is the Frost Giant Queen from the Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter for your consideration. I was unable to participate in the Bones 3 Kickstarter as I came upon these Bones figures late in the game. However, the participants who were able placed their unwanted miniatures up on eBay, so I took advantage of opportunity when presented. I focused on Color Theory and Texture on this piece as she provided a very large palette to paint upon. These Giants provided me practice in sketching too, which makes the entire line appealing to me.

      Side note: Gratitude to those who did place these minis up on eBay without jacking up the prices. I was able to purchase the both Frost Giant Royalty around cost of what Reaper will sell them at Retail. This certainly displays an ethos in the Reaper community that makes this community stand out among others. Further, having lurked for awhile: the community here is quite kind and helpful. This is a good community of miniature painters.

      I like the Bones miniature range. The detail on this miniature was very close to what I expect from the metal range, and I will purchase more of the Bones range in the future. I am looking forward to the resculpt of Vanya, the Fire Giant Princess, and her new size to match the Fire Giants in D&D. The attire of this miniature is akin to the Viking attire of old, and I found my SCA ventures to assist me in painting this Viking Apron and embellishments. The sculptor did an outstanding job and I look forward to more of their work.

      The FAQs were an asset that made my first foray into Bones an easier one. I had difficulty with flash lines until I picked up some diamond files, which handled them quite well without marring detail like my serrated files. The bent pieces were fixed with some boiling water and cold water quite easily. The pieces fit together like a glove, though I admit I still pinned them. (My OCD was tingling.) I did use Krylon as Primer, and the tackiness disappeared after the first coat of paint. She was sealed only with Krylon Dull Cote and exhibits no tackiness. She has been handled and there is no rubbing off of paint.

      I like how her base was round, though I am ignorant of what would be an appropriate Reaper base to place this inside of. (I currently have the King on a GW Dreadnought base, and I do not like it. If anyone reads this and has a recommendation, I surely would appreciate it.)

      This Bones line of miniatures has proven to me to be a Good Idea and one I will support. I am already purchasing more of the Bones 2 line for my D&D and Oldhammer alternatives, and I admit excitement at the new of Bones 4. Based on the quality of these miniatures: you will have an additional participant. Please keep up the outstanding quality and amazing work.

      I hope you enjoy my efforts. C&C is always appreciated: it is the only way an Artist can improve.

      May your blends be smooth.
      Peace and blessings.

      Hi friends:
      After hard months of working, we´ve improved the game Iron League Blacks Stadium and the art has changed. Mechs and miniatures are amazing now. The board game has a new full cooperative campaign with map, scenary and enemies generation.
      The competitive mode continues and has been improved.
      So, we also want to change the title of the game, and this is:
      IRON WARS
      In July on Kickstarter. Soon more news.
