Except on Facebook I get to watch Tre Manor and Kev White fight about their political views. It's like pay per view without the pay.

 

::(:  

 

I have totally and entirely lost all interest in watching people I like disagree with each other politically.

Stonehaven have some nice grippli. 

 

Grippli are so small, Bones may not be the best medium for them, detail wise.

 

This.

 

The Reaper Sqogs stand (well, squat, really) just under an inch tall, which makes them a bit more dwarf-sized than halfling sized, but I would call them pretty close. If you want something really tiny, like a 2' Grippli, I think you'd have to look into the Stonehaven versions, or something similar.

Work may one day notice how little work I'm doing...

 

<<.<<    >>.>>

 

I just sent an email to the big boss explaining my predictions for the most recent and current quarter, and now I need to hang out for a bit if she wants to chat about them. 

 

They know im doing well studying so using the excuse of leaving early to go study may not be as effective. :down: 

 

 

I wasnt always spending the time playing around in the bones thread! Just umm... maybe half... :blush:

 

I hear you.

 

I took a break from goofing off to start working on a software architecture document I need to write this week... :ph34r:

Other than my request for some Dallas Cowboys in Bones, I haven't published my wish list. So here it is:

 

1. Feral/Primitive Hawkmen

2. Fairies/Fae

3.  Satyrs/Fauns

4. Exotic fantasy infantry in non historical armour (think Unsullied from Game of Thrones)

5. Githyanki warriors

6. Dallas Cowgirls

 

Maybe Request 'Football players' and 'Cheerleaders' instead? Then you can paint them in whatever team colors you like and Reaper doesn't have to worry about licensing....

Indeed...Rooooo groarg...rohooo!!!

 

 

 

I was under the impression the Chibis are kinda voted for on F-Book only.

No worries there, I really enjoy the KS!

 

*** Moar monsters please***

not being voted on. There's 6 total Small World Heroes, and we're releasing the images of each one at a time. if each image reaches a target number of shares (this's facebook speak for "I repost what you posted, so others will see it" - kind of like this forum's habit of QFT) then we add it into *every* core set. and we post the images in an update, so everyone knows what's coming. It's not really a vote, and all 6 will be revealed and added individually, no model is going tone potentially "cut" because a different model got in.

It'd be better if I didn't have to wait a full minute to switch applications. 

 

I need to pull info  from sql server and compare that data to what we get from our business intelligence software, so I need to switch between IE, Excel,SQL, Word, and Outlook, and since we got upgraded to the new Microsoft stuff, it takes me a full minute to switch programs most times, long enough for me to go.... 'shiny'! 

 

Wait what hat was I doing again?

Tre Manor and Kev White get into political debates? I didn't realize those circles crossed so distinctly (Kev White as in the sculptor of succubi and inappropriate things?).

Ah thx for explaining Big Kaiju!

 

Congrats on yet another succesful KS.

I know it has a long way to go before the end, but already a succes I'll say!

And yes, it's absolutely all marketing. Facebook is our #1 source of referrals - higher even than our own website (which is #2). The best return for our time then, is to help make sure that even more FB users get to see our project - especially because of how often we hear people say they missed them because they didn't know they were happening. 

 

So me getting you to share it to your friends lets potentially hundreds of people see it, and if you have 10 friends on the project that also share it, it is more likely that you will see it (Facebook doesn't show you *everyhting* that all of your friends post. there's an increased chance that you'll see it the more often it has been seen by others, the more of your friends share it, and the more the category of the "sharable" aligns with interests you have shared or liked before), and the more likely that you will back us.

It's a small world, and a lot of the miniatures sculptors know each other.

 

Tre Manor has ome sort of arrangement where his Red Box Games figures are sold in the UK from Hasslefree's site (the site of Kev White).

 

 

 

 

... and yeah, Kev White is the sculptor of those over-the-top incubi and succubi, but they are hardly his only, or most typical, work.

 

I love Kev White's figures because he is very very good at realistic modern and futuristic women in sensible body armor and footwear doing dynamic things.

Wait a second. I was thinking of a different Tre. This makes MUCH more sense now. I was thinking Trey Parker who makes South Park. I derped. 

 

I do know that Kev White does other stuff - but wasn't sure he'd be as identifiable by those. I like his stuff in general.

Y'oughtta see 'em at Reapercon. 

Two very good friends, and fine people, who get into the NASTIEST argument/discussions online. See 'em in person, you think, "These two have been chums for years."

Truth is, I think pretty highly of both of them, both as artists and as people, although Tre has been known to troll a bit.

Then again, I've been known to mess with the cubes a little, myself.

I'm not a chibi person. probably won't ever be. that being said, all the chibi vitriol being tossed around makes me sort of wish the entire rest of the kickstarter was chibi (and some hellborn and iconics if we could squeeze those in)

Not a chibi fan either. But if others like them, I see no harm. Are folks lighting torches in the KS comments?

      About this project
      In this third Frills & Fauna installment, we delve into the darker side of the Stargrind universe. The Overlords Kickstarter looks at one of the species in the galaxy that subdue others.  Overlords
      Behind every thrall is a master. A major antagonist in Stargrind is the Overlords. A wholly alien species best described as floating brains. Physically, the overlords are quite weak, as they have evolved to interact with the physical realm using their minds. Powerful with both telepathy and telekinesis, the overlords can control everything (and almost everyone) around them with a simple thought.  
      These models will involve two sets of components: bodies and tentacles. Different sets of tentacles may become available though stretch-goals to mix and match with the bodies. The number of "slots" on each body for attaching appendages is referred to as "soft points."
      Being cast in resin means they are very easily manipulated into different poses by placing them into hot water.
        Classes of Overlords
      Drone
      The most commonly spotted Overlord has been labelled the drone. Drones are slightly armoured in comparison to other classes of overlord, lending to their common presence on the battlefield where they are most vulnerable.
      The drone has 6 soft points.
      Watcher
      Named for its assumed purpose of being a scout, as it lurks the battlefields and rarely engages. Its single eye beholds locations and movements of creatures, communicating back to the overlords' hivemind. Unlike the drone, its eye is exposed for greater vision, but more susceptible to damage.
      The watcher has 8 soft points.
      Reaper
      If the overlords can't initially control a species, the reapers emerge to consume brain matter and learn the secrets of its biology. Equipped to tackle specimens still living, the reapers entangle their foes with tentacles before feasting on the head.
      The Reaper has 8 soft points.
       Infiltrator
      The infiltrators carry large egg-like spores on their bodies, which they disperse in secluded areas that are rich with organic material. This appears to be their only purpose, as their flaccid husks are abandoned with their deposits, perhaps to catalyze the growth process.
      The watcher has no soft points.
      Matriarch
      Meet the Matriarch! It's uncertain whether the matriarch is a mature version of the infiltrator, or a seperate class altogether, but she also bears overlord spores. Perhaps since infiltrators expire upon plantation, this class of overlord is indeed an alternative path, growing larger and more dominant rather than concluding in sacrifice.   The matriarch has 12 soft points. Sporeling
      Once an invader (or better) transplants its cargo of spores (chlamydospore) onto biomass, the spores begin to absorb the biomatter and grow. Some take on traits of their "food." Once they complete germination, the spores detach from the husk and float around until they either form self awareness, link into the hivemind of a mature overlord or fall prey to something else. Adolescent
      As sporelings grow, their embryonic roots retract, wither and harden. Often mistaken for horns or teeth, these scabby protrusions are reborn as tentacles or other feeler/manipulator devices. Scale shots

      About this project
      Overview
      Help us launch our first line of plastic miniatures for the tabletop games we all play and love.   Run by a family of gamers, Role 4 Initiative brings decades of experience in gaming and design. 
      You've seen our dungeon tiles and polyhedral dice, now we wish to bring that same quality and value to the table with 28mm high-detail pre-painted plastic miniatures.
      Starting off with some of the most common player and monster types (Humans, Orcs, Zombies, and Skeletons), we will be producing all of our minis in sets of 6 or more per category, so you can easily and cheaply outfit your game with the figures you need.
      Our goal is to bring a very highly detailed set of miniatures, with excellent paint jobs for a reasonable price.  We all love gaming, but we're not all great artists.  So, we will always provide miniatures that are fully assembled, professionally painted, and ready to use.
      Our minis are made from a PVC material that provide both durability and flexibility.  We also have gone to great lengths to bring as much realism as possible by providing proper anatomical proportions in a 60:1 scale. 
       
       
      The Process
      First, we thought about some of the most memorable encounters of our games, wishing we had some appropriate miniatures to represent the characters and monsters in the story.

      Then we envisioned what these characters would look like and hired artists to create 3D models, 2D renderings, and background scenery that fit our stories.  But made sure they could easily fit your stories too.

      Finally, we took these models and renderings to our factory to create the plastic injection molds from which we were able to produce the painted samples you see below.

      What you get for your support:
      Set #1 - Human Adventurers
      Concept design:
      Set 1: Human Adventurers Production Samples:
      Male Viking Warrior  
      Female Blademaster  
      Male Cleric  
      Male Ranger  
      Male Wizard  
      Female Archer

      About this project
      Painted by - May Aguilar Andreu of MayArt  
      Newly Cast Bust  
       In 2016, our son who has Down syndrome graduated from high school. Most of the options for the disabled are limited so we decided to create our own opportunities for him. My wife left her career and we started Boyd's Toys. We are a small, family run business that specializes in resin cast figures and commercial printing. We do our own 3D printing, mold making, vacuum and pressure casting. John Boyd has over 30 years of printing and design experience and his favorite past time is table top games. We started creating our own figures in resin about 18 months ago on a 15 mm project called Chronicles of the Wayfarer. What is this project? Chronicles of the Wayfarer is a 15 mm war-game that has been under development for over a year now. It has two complete armies to support it and two more on the way. We have decided to release four busts to help raise funds and create a fan base to continue the development of CotW, so stay tuned ... three more are coming. 
      Below you will find a sample selection of our upcoming release of Chronicles of the Wayfarer. These are 15 mm leaders of the Kilnites. Left to right: Knight of the Kiln, War Screamer, Shield Legion, and Crossbowmen Leader. These are submissions from a recent painting contest that we sponsored. 
       
      For the first 48 hours we will be offering a free 30mm figure of the Lawgiver, "Unmasked". This figure will only be available in one of two ways and will never be sold by us after this Kickstarter. Anyone ordering a bust in the first 48 hours will receive one free. Anyone sharing our Kickstarter announcement on our Facebook page will be entered for a chance to win one of 10 figures.
       
       
      Anyone participating in the Kickstarter will have the ability to purchase additional figures. Once this campaign is done this version of the Lawgiver will be retired and his mask goes back on.

      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.
