The sneak peak is once again a stone-age Saurial type.  Seems like a hint toward some kind of saurial and/or jungle pack.

 

Anybody want to venture an educated and/or baseless guess whether's it's a core set bump, an add-on, or a full-on expansion pack?

A land of the lost type expansion would be epic...

Though by itself it feels like a Chronoscope critter.

It does, though we've been told multiple times that the Chronoscope expansion is closed to new minis now.

Very true. Makes me sad, though. Need more Starfinder-appropriate minis!

Correct.  Reaper did not say it, I did. Yes, I am a Reaper Sculptor, but no I don't do many humans for them (or anyone for that matter; monsters, creatures, animals, and terrain are my specialties).

 

 I also didn't say caricature. It is just more difficult, not impossible to read female and full expression at the same time.  It takes skill, something you will find in both Izzy and Reaper's top humanoid sculptors.  Could I do it?  I'm not sure.  I have twice on smiling figures, but it took several tries.  

 

This is all information I got from taking Bobby Jackson's Expressive Faces class.  Bobby is one of Reaper's primary humanoid sculptors.

 

Understood, apologies I couldn't remember who made the post initially. I understood the point you were making (hopefully). And I know that Reaper's artists and sculptors are capable of making female figures look active and like warriors and not just diplomats or courtesans.

That one expansion might be, but that doesn't stop Reaper adding more Chronoscope minis as separate add-ons if they decide they want them.

As much as I agree in the awesomeness of that, I think they've run out of time to begin a whole new three-tiered expansion.  So my vote is it's a core set addition, kind of like the Wild West Oz was added to Bones 3.

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?

I will be using the bloodstone gnomes as svirfneblin (deep gnomes).  Guess it would depend what you were playing though.  I typically play in the Forgotten Realms (Sword Coast/Faerun).

Depends on how closely the goals fall in line with each other. I fully expect at least 6 more milestones to be hit -- which I guess means only 3 more reveals, so maybe that is the case. We don't have much in the way of history, but Bones 2 & 3 only had 3 expansions, everything else was core or addons.

(Lucifer, for what it is worth, has just plain quit the game. Heaven? Hell? They can both go hang. He is working as a PI in Boston. (Because it's funny, that's why.))

This is essentially the plot of the Lucifer TV Series on FOX. He owns a nightclub in LA and moonlights as a Police Consultant.

      Goblin Troublemakers  
      the mighty Troll (work in progress)  
       
       
       
      Goblins ... iconic fantasy creatures, maybe not the most dangerous, comical at times,
      And Trolls ... Trolls may be a bit slow ... not to say stupid, but they are big, and strong! (and always hungry!)
      Together, Trolls and Goblins are a force to reckon with!
      This campaign is a small group of goblins and a big troll to accompany them. If they are funded, we'll add more goblins, for larger warbands, some characters to lead them, and more trolls!
      Goblins are among my favorite figurines to carvings, different expressions, anatomy, costumes and armours ... I have many of them in the pipeline, and I want to sculpt many more!
      You can pledge for a warband of 5, 10 or 20 goblins. If you pledge for 5, they will be the 5 goblins you see here. If you pledge for 10 or 20 models you'll get 2 or 4 of each of them. However, you're more likely to be stretched, they'll be swapped with other miniatures so you get the minimum amount of doubles. And some of these goblins thrown in the larger warband will not be your average goblin canon fodder!
      If you want to add a Troll (or several!) To your goblin warband, just add $ 22 (per troll) to your pledge.

      About this project
       
       
      Time of Legends: Joan of Arc is a narrative miniatures board game that plunges you into the heart of the Hundred Years’ War. In this dark, medieval universe, kings plot for the throne of France, and on the battlefield their heroic knights clash with foes both real and legendary.
      For more than a century, from 1337 to 1453, the fields of France rang to the sound of constant warfare. The Hundred Years’ War is one of the longest wars ever fought and is the source of many of our collective ideas about heroic knights of old. It was also a time of myths and legends, and a fervent faith in the literal truth of the doctrine of Holy Mother Church. It is this world of strife and faith that this game recreates.
      In Time of Legends: Joan of Arc, all the creatures that the medieval people thought were real, are real. Whether they are represented on tapestries, in stained glass windows, or in illuminated manuscripts, we take them at their word. It is this dark and epic universe that you will explore in the game’s many scenarios. Some are historical, with no taint of the whispered legends of strange creatures. Others are replete with the supernatural or (saints preserve us) demonic.
      You are free to control the army of miniatures that represent your heroes, knights and peasants as you wish in order to achieve your goals. You will decide who moves and where; whether your forces explore, pray, converse with locals, or simply charge into battle. But before we get to the field of glory, you must first choose your side.
        
      Joan Of Arc, Bertrand Du Guesclin, La Hire, Gilles de Rais & Jean de Dunois (miniatures are supplied assembled and unpainted)  The French have a very large army whose leaders follow the code of chivalry to the letter. These noble knights form the main striking force of the army, with their infantry taking a subservient role. The French employ few archers, but do hire efficient crossbowmen to fight alongside their men-at-arms. All these warriors fight on behalf of the King of France, who sees the war as a chance to reclaim lands lost to the English under earlier monarchs.
      The Black Prince, Falstaff, John Talbot, John Chandos & John of Lancaster (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The English king considers himself the legitimate heir to the throne of France, and there is some truth in this. In fact, he only failed to gain the crown because the French changed the rule of royal succession to stop him.
      The English army, though considerably less numerous than the French, are formidable combatants, who often have the best strategists. Their longbowmen wreak havoc on the battlefield, and have repeatedly bested the cream of French chivalry in battle. This is a slight that the French knights are determined to avenge.
      Archange Gabriel, the Unicorn & Angel (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The army of God is made up of powerful, heavenly beings like the angels and archangels. They fight their righteous battles alongside the lesser creatures of God, and the weary mortals who struggle with sin, but are devoted to their creator.
      The Holy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.
      The Witch, the Werewolf & the Ghost Warrior (note that minis come assembled and unpainted) The Devil’s army is made up of all sorts of foul creatures: werewolves, demons, skeletons, dragons, witches, and many more. Countless fallen mortals march alongside this monstrous host, having cast aside their God and sold their souls for mere wealth or power. It is rumoured that in this dark time, when the End of Days has never seemed so close, even the Devil himself may make an appearance...
      The Unholy Army can be played independently, or allied with the French, or the English.

      Another set of plastic minis for the Ogre game, or for fans of retro style tanks.
       
      I don't see a pledge that includes the Ogre game, looks like just minis this time.
