I haven't heard many people talking about it but I am really excited to see more of the Nyarlathotep!  He looks huge and pretty awesome from the concept art.

 

I'm definitely curious to see what that terrain piece with it looks like

I'm looking forward to seeing the Nyarlathotep concept art finished as well.  I've really enjoyed all the Lovecraftian pieces Reaper has done in the past few KS's - and I'll put my vote in now for Hastur/The King in Yellow to be done in next one.

You know, glancing at the KS during the final hours, I was a little bit disappointed that there wasn't as obvious of a capstone that would rival Mal.

 

Dont get me wrong, I love the barge and Argent. But I think because I didn't understand how big Argent is going to be, I was underwhelmed. 

 

I finally got a chance to watch the 'live stream' last night. Quotes because now, there is nothing live about it. 

 

And I believe they showed that DoD is almost 12 inches tall. Seeing that Argent is 12 inches tall tells me he is going to be massive and fitting as a Not baphumat and as a foil to Mal. My excitement for him has increased by 10 fold. 

 

Maybe because im so used to seeing Sirforscale, I don't know how to judge size by numeric measurement. Sure measurements are probably more accurate, I still have a hard time picturing exactly how that size will feel in terms of scale. Having a human sized figure for comparison I feel is much more helpful than that. 

 

I hope that doesn't come off as a criticism. My intention is to give an observation of my epiphany. 

And to say I am now very excited for Argent.

Actually I am liking Argent more than the Traditional Capstone type figure we had been thinking of getting during the kickstarter.

 

 Why you ask?

 

Well 2 reasons.   1. I like big Dragons and have few.  This will be the first time I get a big dragon that does not have 5 heads.  This guy is a  nice majestic posed huge dragon that could just look amazing.  2.  He is not 60 Dollars.  This is huge for me.  60 dollars is 4 or 5 other things in this great kickstarter and just about everything in it is pretty spectacular.  So not having a $60 Capstone eating away at all the smaller but still awesome stuff is just fantastic for me.

 

On another note.  I like the Morloc cavemen guys but I think some Prehistoric Dwarves to go with the Prehistoric Elves would have been a little more interesting to me.  But they still look good.

I'm on the fence about Not-hamut. I like the idea of a counterpoint to Tia-Not, but I'm not sure I need another super huge dragon mini.

Argent being 20 dollars to mee seems amazing value. Such good value that the moment i realised his size I thought about droping some other things (dragon turtle, zombie dragon) to get a second argent instead.

The price point is what I liked about argent as well, definitely getting him! The Morlocs are awesome, already have a diorama in mind for them if I can find a nice george and weena stand in's:)

OR, you could budget in between now and July an extra 20 bucks and get em all:)

Argent is a great capstone. its ideal for molding 1 large piece with maybe 3-4 pieces total which is gonna make the detail much easier to define and lowers the cost significantly Would i have liked a hydra or something complicated sure but this makes so much more sense.

 

and for 20 dollars I am likely to buy multiples to give to players who want to get into painting because a solid color large mini is the perfect first painting piece. And (not to be a cheap about it) but a foot tall dragon resale is so much higher then lets say if Nyarlathotep is a foot tall, you could buy 10 argents paint half and have the other half pay for most of your kickstarter in a year or so.

 

Love the capstone would love to see the finalized object when its reworks are done in maybe one of those 3d spinning model programs with sir forscale to get people excited about it

I think the $20 price tag is why people didn't think he was a Capstone.

That, and there were statements that he wasn't considered the "capstone."

I never saw anyone from Reaper or you say it wasn't the capstone.  But many were implying they did see some Reaper person say that it wasn't.  That seemed to be the perception, false as it was, unfortunately.

My mistake, then. A review of the past 6 days of comments indicates multiple instances of commenters indicating it was not the hinted at "capstone" piece, and one post from you 3 days ago that I didn't previously see confirming it was. There was a lot of misinformation and confusing regarding the capstone piece, and the reveal of Argent felt somewhat lacking in the fanfare I would have expected for such a piece, but that's likely due to the frenetic pace at the end. Glad to have this finally clarified for me.

You most certainly did not.

 

I looked through the campaign posts a little bit and I think I see what happened. is that if you looked at the price point and went "That's cool, what's the capstone?" the line "We've got just a few hours to go, and we're NOT DONE showing new rewards! Stay Tuned!" would be totally consistent with the mistaken assumption that Argent wasn't the capstone and there was another big one coming.

 

Not sure that explains all of it but that's my best guess right now.

 

Oh well! :)

 

I think we might spend more on this than we did on Bones 3. And Bones 3 was a dangerously high total...

      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.
