I haven't added nearly enough to the PM yet, and it'll take me some more time to see how much I can add. Still recovering from Irma, but I do see an opportunity a month or two before the PM closes that can ensure this be the biggest KS for me yet . . .

I should make my final selections. I don't think we've seen anything official, but I don't see any point in holding out for more Power Ups.

I'm determined to get a DVD set this time. I can't decide between the Jen Haley/Anne Foerster set or the Marike Reimer set. I do like the idea of watching two of my favorite artists interact and offer different views, but Reimer includes animals. Anybody have some advice?

From what I have heard, the Reimer ones are more advanced. Pick based on skill/confidence, perhaps?

I'm really on the fence about the Tree of Dispair. At first it was a definite no but I've warmed up to it a bit. 

 

I'm still not completely crazy about it but I think it might be cool.  I wish there were runes or something carved into it.

I'd go with the Jen/Anne one, for the exact reason you gave:)

I have been thinking and I decided not to include Dreadmere.

When I narrow it down I only really want the Terrapin, the boat and the Grouper.

That doesn't justify a whole set, and I will get these in retail.

There are some nice reptiles/frogs etc, but I already have a full army waiting to be painted and I'm getting the Nagendra already.

 

So these funds will go into Baba Yaga Hut. I will leave the legs off and use it a as a centre terrain piece for my Undead army.

I'm not sure yet if I shouldn't take two so I can show one from the back, there is a little tower on the other side, maybe paint them up in different colours and add some stuff like raven or bats to one of them.

Make some slight alterations to one.

I could have a small town overrun with the Undead.

 

Put my Kaladrax on the Obsidian Crypt piece in there, together with the Graveyard set and some smaller crypts I have and it might look awesome.

 

What do you think?

Could one alter a Baba Yaga Hut enough to show both from different angles and make it believeable that these are two different houses.?

But but.... all the Dreadmere goodness .... or darkness! 

 

Might be able to alter the hut to look different enough. If you greenstuffed the windows to look whole, replaced some missing shingles, that could help too. Get them in different states of disrepair. That might turn into a "before and after" sort of thing though for shiny new house versus abused-by-witch house.

I want both houses to be a bit dark and ruined.

They will be part of my Undead set up..

 

A Flying Undead Ship?

Hmm, another great idea...

You can always carve them in yourself.

After all, that's how they become adornments for real trees.

Runes are probably the easiest form of writing to carve as the entire runic alphabet is based on straight lines.

I just had a new idea on how to paint one of my DoDs.... volcanic lightning style. Get the white-purple-blues from the air and lightning, and then reds-browns-yellows from the ground and the lava. *ponders color schemes*

I know I keep kicking this dead horse cat dragon JUST kidding::P:

Seriously though, I am getting close to finalizing my final choices before July, and this one stands or falls on what will be included.

I am talking of course about the Trolls add-on, can we please get a confirmation on the battering ham? This is really holding me back on a lock in, @Reaper Ron any chance we can get some kind of official answer?

There is a cat with wings in this familair pack.

 

https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/familiar/sku-down/02593

 

I pledged for the fan pack, but I might pick up an extra mammoth in retail as well.

It looks awesome, and I have many ideas.

      About
                                        1 CHF = 0,88 EUR = 1,02 USD
      Through this project we want to expand our new series of collectibles miniatures inspired by The Divine Comedy, the Dante Alighieri's poem, the book that recounts about the mystical and fabulous journey that the italian poet Dante Alighieri accomplished through the three realms of the afterlife: INFERNO, PURGATORIO and PARADISO.  
      Last year we have completed an amazing campaign here on Kickstarter dedicated to the launch of the first figures of this new series. The welcome that the project received was exceptional and many backers asked us about the characters of the poem of Dante Alighieri that we didn't produce during the first wave of releases. Well, in this campaign you'll find the expansion: a second series of figures inspired by The Divine Comedy of Dante Alighieri is ready to be produced, they are just waiting your support.
      1. You'll get the NEW miniatures of Dante's Inferno series several months before their official launch: these figures are NOT going to be released soon!!  
      2. Our designs are unique, we take care carefully about every detail of our productions in order to offer you the most spectacular miniatures for your collection.  
      3. Geryon is KICKSTARTER EXCLUSIVE, it means that this creature won't be available in the future! This Kickstarter is your only chanche to get it.  
      4. The other amazing figures will NOT have the same price when released: their price on Kickstarter is the cheaper price.  
      5. You're a fan of Aradia and your support will allow this company to continue to bring out fantastic models and dioramas - real pieces of art.  
      6. We have already managed successfully 2 Kickstarter campaigns in the past and intend to stand for it in the future.  
      7. We are equipped to produce high quality resin miniatures in large quantities and ship them in a reasonable time.  
      8. Returning Backers receive extra bonus.  
      9. You'll have the possibility to buy Add-Ons from previous series of Dante's Inferno at Kickstarter prices and get freebies.  
      10. You'll be part of a fantastic adventure to make this project reality for us all, keeping alive this unique miniatures series based on The Divine Comedy: Dante's Inferno.
      There are 2 kind of backers for this campaign, the old heroes who already descended to Inferno and are not afraid to return in that gloomy place and the new heroes who are descinding right now.  
      We have planned, for some add-ons, 2 different prices: one for "returning backers" and another one for "new backers".  
      - RETURNING BACKERS = Backers who already backed our first campaign of Dante's Inferno during 2017 https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1201812263/aradia-miniatures-the-divine-comedy-dantes-inferno  
      - NEW BACKERS = Backers who are backing Dante's Inferno for the first time  
      ALL THE BACKERS OF THIS CAMPAIGN WILL BECOME AUTOMATICALLY "RETURNING BACKERS" IN THE NEXT ARADIA KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN, BEING ABLE TO ENJOY ALL THE BENEFITS OF "RETURNING BACKERS".
