Caveman fist fighting the sloth? Kind of like this barbarian punching a bear. :D

Now that's just mean. Sloths are adorable and lovable. The giant sloth is obvious the tribe mascot.

Yeah, if I get just the parts of the core I really want it comes to $96. So the question is, do I want to pay the extra $4 for stuff I will probably never paint or use? 

 

 

Yes get it and maybe even do a quick rough paint job and give it to a kid in your family, maybe a friend or neighbors child.  I think some of mine will  be done like that.  I just have no use for some of the core at all but kids love stuff like that as a little gift.

Well, that squeezed another fifty dollars out of my whimpering wallet...::D:

 

Guess the dino-folk are going to stand in for Sleestaks, with one of those Chronoscope ones as the lost one from the deep past...

Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'm not overly enthusiastic about how they've split the core this time. I understand it, but I guess it just wasn't what I was expecting.

For example, I was looking forward to picking up the three demons from the Demons and Devils set but I actively dislike the minitaurs, Baba Yaga leaves me cold, and I already have two copies of the Chaos Warrior guy in resin.

Ahh well, more stuff to get at retail I suppose.

IMO, waiting for retail wont save you money. I'm pretty sure those demons will be at least $5 each retail. (wings tend to eat mold space)

Yep. The $15 Bones I demon set costs $12 + $13 : https://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/demon bones/price/page2

 

For the sets that are similar in Bones III vs. Bones IV, it looks like you get about 50% more figures for the same price in Bones IV? (eg. Goblins, Villagers)

 

Paint sets are 10% less. 

 

My guess is that, since Reaper is charging US customers shipping, they can otherwise provide lower prices. as well as the dragon in the core set.

Also not a fan of how they broke up the core. I was gonna get the smaller female demon, assumed she would be broken up with the two males. I can wait for retail. I had already estimated money for the chibi so that works fine.

 

Core is on only a value if you want what's in it. I ended up giving the vast majority of core from I and II to friends. Didn't bother with it in 3 or this one.

From my viewpoint, the core split worked fine; I wanted the villagers and not much else, so I was happy to see the cart thrown in, rather than the original block fenced off as a unit as has been done previously. If I were new, of course, the core would be a fine start toward populating a D&D game...

I was hoping the bandits would be their own group... *Shrug* I kinda get why the sets are broken up like this though. Still getting an extra set of snake cultists.

All I wanted was female giants so I can't complain. The 80ish mm demons was a total bonus and made my day :)

I have lots and lots of minis, not getting more isn't a bad thing.

So, I've been mostly out of the loop while traveling the past few weeks. Did I miss anything? :poke:

      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.

      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.
