i'm opposite xD i prefer armor and dread doing skin and faces

 

I've noticed a large amount of people who dislike skin lol. I'm so bad at painting thinks like cloaks and skirts and I tend to rush through armor :D 

Too bad they didn't make a hunky male giant with no shirt lol.

The frost giants are my favorite add-on yet. I'm nearing my budget limit, and that's after cutting a bunch of maybes that have just been pushed out by the latest cool offerings. 

 

I figure I can pledge x right now though, then set aside a little each month until next July to add more in the pledge manager. 

 

Side question, do bloodstone gnomes have a standard fantasy or D&D parallel, or are they specific to Reaper's world?

They are mutated deep gnome (svefilbifin or however that is spelled). Somewhere is a post from back in 2004 with the background for them.  I saw the link somewhere today or yesterday.

When I first saw the add on I miss read it and thought it said Frost Giant "Riders".  I thought it would be a giant on a woolly mammoth!

 

I was only disappointed for a second once I saw the picture and reread the title.  These Frost Giants are awesome!!

I read it that way too! ::o:

 

The sketches are gorgeous and the giantesses are my favorites in Bones 4 (so far!).

Remmember when Reaper told us that it is hard to tell females apart from males if they wear sensible clothing and dont have a caricature of feminine features. I can see that, but that just gives you the option of saying that something is a feminine male or just a normal female. So I don't really see a problem with it. You can paint duplicates as oposite gender (give a man a stuble, I say), you could allready do it to most female mages and rouges (it's a male elf I tell you).

Here I was assuming Bloodstone Gnomes were the Reaper "not-Derro."  Which struck me as odd, since Reaper has some models already called Derro.

I would prefer giants with less armor tbh. And as mentioned above a "D" cup isn't that big of you know about bra sizing and wear a bra lol. 

Im just glad to see more female giants and ones that are fearsome. 

My favorite part of the mini to paint is the skin and face so I'm biased to barbarian type minis. 

It kinda makes sense for the frost giantesses to be wearing more clothes. Sorta. I guess they're immune to cold, so it doesn't matter. 

 

I hope they make fire giantess warriors who are dressed all barbaric. And cave woman (not Raquel Welch style) hill giantess warriors. And storm giantess warriors. And cloud. And so forth and so on.

Looks at the crowd gathered around the Bones4 Kickstarter and wonders who among them are innocent...? :)

 

???

 

J--

 

I'm sure many of us have never been convicted and are thus innocent in the eyes of the law. :devil:<_<

Each of our minds is a world. In that world we ourselves decided what is innocence and what is guilt. Therefore as long as we believe ourselves to be innocent, we are so.

In regards to the KS, the giant raiders look fun. I can wait for the Dance and Blacksting, but really I don't want to.

Ouch rough hour.  0 backers and -$193 can't have too many like that left.  Hope it was the final lull before the avalanche.

It happens. People hit an unexpected bill and have to drop their pledge dollars down to something lower. I'm surprised with hurricane Harvey going on that it's not happening more.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.

      Do yourself a favour and take a look at what's on offer even if you've not backed one of Stonehavens projects before.
      Lots of unique and fun concepts scattered throughout,
       
      Plus they've done things a bit differently and have everything already sculpted and shown.
       
      Love the cloaked mysterious strangers.

      This is the Bones 4 Information Thread.
      In an effort to reduce confusion by people seeking information and asking on topic questions, we are creating two threads for our Bones 4 Kickstarter.
      This is the thread for information and questions.  
      This thread will be moderated to ensure forum rules are followed.  Posts of chatter and enthusiasm will be relocated to the Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2052977442/carnevale-the-miniature-game

      Carnevale is a tactical narrative miniatures game set in 1790's Venice. Safe from the effects of the Rent in the Sky that tore Italy in half, Venice is now a hot-spot of magical activity. Strange creatures rise from the canals, the ruling class play violent games with lesser men, and the population of Venice try to survive. All vie for power in the street fights that take place in the dark of the night.

      Carnevale is a game that focuses on movement and brutal combat. You're as likely to see two people battling in the streets as you are to see warriors jumping from rooftop to rooftop and drowning their opponents in the canals. Using the tight streets and watery dangers to your advantage will ensure victory, and if it doesn't, some well-timed magic spells might!

      Carnevale is a narrative game that sees gamers play through various scenarios with their gangs of fighters. The games skirmishes allow for in depth storytelling, and we have made an effort to streamline rules in order to let the action take place on the tabletop, rather than spending too much time keeping track in the pages of a rulebook. The tactical flexibility opens up when building your gangs how you want, using many varied members to different effect.
