Also, more comics!

Yeah don't get me wrong, I think all the chrono stuff is super cool, but I think when all is said and done, if I can't put my finger on a use for it I probably have to wait for retail and see if I want it  (and have the money) then.

My issue with the Chronoscope stuff is the unifying theme is "Scifi" so other than that there is no real theme between all the minis... So while I could use some for one thing, I cant use others... And don't have enough of the one thing that I would want for the intended use...

 

Side note... I think I am gonna get the andromedan princess in metal while waiting for this to fufil....

This is the campaign setting that has been used at the last couple of Reapercons.  It's a fantasy world with horror elements, and is not tied to any one game system.

I think it's a wise choice for flexibility. Can easily stretch from medieval fantasy to 20th century for some minis. Gives a lot of value. I'm not sure what a third expansion would be, but I think I'll need this. I'm figuring this first part is about 40$ and fills gaps I have.

I think that I'll be in for $300 during the kickstarter, then bump it up in the PM when I get my tax refund next year.

The only thing "scifi" is the rifle, but it could be a coil rifle or other black powder type weapon... I even had a race that uses "wand Muskets" which were basically muskets that were loaded with wands... that allowed non casters to activate...

It would be relatively easy to chop that rifle off and replace with a spear. 

 

@Clearman - that's exactly what hat I was thinking! Great minds think alike!

Yeah I'm going to have to start being choosy, especially as more gets revealed. Not needing the chrono expansion saves me some headroom in the budget though.

Yeah I looked... That would be a bit cost prohibitive for the amounts I want....

I am there with you. I like the Chrono expansion, but It will not make the list if they keep pumping out cool stuff... Maybe in the pledge manager... maybe

Yah that's what I am thinking too. Unfortunately at this point, I'll probably have to stay with my low pledge and pray things get better so I can bump up for a lot of what is available before July comes.

My tax return (if I get any) will probably be how I get all what I want (or get my Ebay sales moving). Unfortunately things are bad right now, to the point I have had to file one of those B things:( not even sure how the next month will play out. Everyone please pray our family gets through all this BS this month. Thanks everyone!

Really excited to see what will come next in this Dreadmere expansion. Jacob, Reisman, Worden and Wladislaw are good examples for "thugs" for me. They don't look heroic and I can see them robbing a struggling PC behind a tavern as well as storming a castle as part of an angry mob or robbing merchants on the lonely roads around the village. 

I've got them in metal (though I've named them the Hansen brothers) that I use for Frostgrave.  They are quite nice.  I could do with another set myself.  Pretty sure that I'm in for this expansion even though I have all of the existing minis in metal/resin already.

Loving the new expansion!  Rowboat is great and Dreadmere has a very dark, dirty vibe.

Same here. They're good minis, and having duplicates isn't a bad thing. Plus now (18+months from now) I can chop up the Bones ones for conversions without worrying about destroying/ruining a metal or resin mini.

So was this in a pathfinder game system or something else entirely?

 

Neutral setting using whatever rules ReaperWolf uses for Rcon that year. This year it's Castles & Crusades (I think).

I'm still over pledged for what I want.. the core this time is much more in line with what I need.. the expansions not so much but we'll see what Dreadmere holds in the future.. now do I buy more paint in the colors I already have, or just multiples of any new colors.. *ponder*

i want a Roc

 

and sea serpent

 

and pirate gnolls

@Sirithiliel do you want with or without Elephant? I am curious. Not advocating for or against either option. Also, what wingspan does it need to have to consider it a Roc? (Could somebody just sub a 1:1 scale Raven to use as a Roc?)

 

I thought they once did a sea serpent in separately based pieces. Tail + U shaped half coil + Head. All based emergent from water. That would be cool. Add additional U segments to create longer serpents. 

 

I liked your pirate Gnolls drawing.

I'm so conflicted with the Dreadmere expansion...  Some of the human-sized ones I might have in metal but then they had to include a boat.  I really want that boat. 

I can build that boat. Still nice to have as a timesaver. Building a boat that nice takes time.

I'm in for Dreadmere too. Who doesn't need a barrel of fish?

Multiple barrels of fish would be nice, also crates, tabled fish, fish on smoking racks...

 

Also, additional boats. Like a pirate longboat, armed with swivel guns. Or a small pinnace with a nine-pounder Cannon mounted forward, a barge would be good, or maybe a keelboat. 

 

Additional things of gruesome, I am not much of a fan of those.

I actually like the Chrono set for that reason.    I see it kind of like a Reaper Sci-Fi sampler.  It gives me a chance to get a hands-on view of a lot of their different sci-fi figures, try out paint schemes, etc; and then I can decide which ones, if any, I want to build units of.

      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

      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.
