Yeah. I know going from $100 to $1 is a drop in the bucket for what the funds are at now, but I still feel bad.

 

Toys are fun. Having a place to live in and electricity to run your lights turns out to be useful for playing with your toys. ^_^

 

Do life first, then do toys.

I know I did the right thing from a practicality standpoint. It just wasn't want I wanted to do.

 

Alternatively: waaaaah adulting

They will keep the PM open for months.

So no worries about that.

And yes, you're buying minis so you're helping Reaper in the end.

You have participated in unlocking stretch goals so far.

It will be allright!

Well the PM will not close for a long time, so in the end you can still get some stuff

 

Yeah. And worst case scenario, I buy it as it hits retail. It isn't like I'll never be able to get things. And whatever I buy that way will I'm sure be more beneficial from Reaper's standpoint, since they'll make more that way, which I'm very okay with. I love these folks (as so many of us do).

Ms. Tubman would need to have two revolvers in hand, with a third tucked behind, and then maybe another in a boot. 

 

As as for the female figure problem, one could always "Mrs Pac-Man" the figure and put a pretty pink bow in any male character's hair. Instant female in dynamic pose!

 

/ducks

 

Didn't Michelangelo essentially do that?

Pretty much. His habit was to take a muscular athletic male form, give it breasts, and call it good.

I'm imagining some dude in the 16th century looking up at the Sistine Chapel ceiling and thinking "Wow, the Virgin Mary was built."

Is it bad that the first thing I thought on seeing the preview video was, 'ooh! Sir Forscale! Who painted that one?!'   ..?

 

After that, I got side tracked by nekkid statues and that tree. Which ..  I think I might need that tree.

Still on the fence about Narglauth; we don't really use a lot of demons... but I like the sculpt. ARGH. Decisions!

I don't use or care for demons that much, but it really seems like a Balrog and that's something I'd like to have. 

 

And yes, I love seeing all the different Sir Forscales.

Translucent spheres used as packages aren't impossible to find, though getting the right size can be tricky. But I find it very difficult to convince myself to buy something I don't actually want just to get its packaging.

I recycle the cylindrical lids of my wife's hair products.

Caught up - I was out for 2 days, and sadly I'm on a budget, and it is currently maxed.

Yeah I have not seen mine since it shipped.  I think they sacrificed him to make more minis, but they definitely overpaid for him so they can do as they wish.  Too much metal on Sir Forscale for me to paint it well.

well maybe some day there will be a pleasant range of female monsters like giants and what not that can still be female AND doing something more than standing around too xD

 

you'd think the bust and thin waist would say it's female though o.0 i dunno, i just...feel weird sticking some casually standing female giant in alongside one wielding a sword and charging into battle and say 'these are your enemies, go fight them'

 

 

I think Julie Guthrie excels at dynamic female poses.  That is one of the reasons I have always loved her work, even the stuff from 30 years ago.  Perhaps at Reapercon we can convince her to stop doing dragons, let some of the other sculptors have a chance, and start a line of action posed female giants and other large creatures. 

 

The tree... hmn... it's a starting place I suppose.  Agree that it would make a good perch for a dragon or other large creature.

      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.
