Ugh... First I think I am done adding then I go back and look at stuff and I decide I need more.  I just can't make up my mind.

 

I saw some 160mm bases at my local game store and those things are HUGE!  I will probably add an order of those as they paint for display and they would be handy.  Not to mention they cost like half as much in the PM.

Ooh...I didn't realize there were bases that big in there...I was ignoring the bases, as I tend to get bases as I need them...but...160mm...

Apparently there are artists who have considered similar before. A quick Google search revealed several renditions of an "Antlered Dragon"

 

Just putting this here as inspiration...

Looks more like a caribou version of a hippogryph to me.

Flatland creates weirdness. Like giraffes. What the heck. Cute animals but all stretched out!

Wait, they're really a lot cheaper in the PM?  I'll have to keep that in mind...

I have a nice selection of big bases from the Base Boss KS, up to the 170x105mm ovals. They're very nice for dioramas or big baddies. Highly recommended at KS prices. One example,  I was struggling to base Mashaaf when I first got it. It's big, heavy and refused to lay flat. It needed to be glued down to something. The only thing I had on hand that could fit it was an old CD. I had to glue it down completely just to hold Mashaaf flat (it bends over so easily). That worked, but it didn't look very nice. A year later, turns out the 74063 130mm Round base can fit a CD on either side of the base with a little room to spare. It's another useful size to have on hand. At least for anybody who has ever used a CD to base something. ::P:

My list so far . . . 

 

Core Set x 1

 

Argent x 1

Rauthuros x 1

Narglauth x 2

Dreadmere Expansion x 1

Lost Valley Expansion x 2

Snake Cultists x 2

Zombie Dragon x 1

Hill Giants x 2

Wraiths x 2

Fire Giant Huntsman x 1

Rocky x 1

Living Statue Spartan x 1

Living Statue Amazon x 1

Hill Giant Huntsman x 1

King of the Jungle x 1

King Cobra x 1

Frost Giant Raiders x 2

Thunderfoot Behemoth x 2

Blacktooth Terror x 2

Small World Heroes x 1

Gargoyles (x3) x 1

Braziers (x3) x 1

Skulls (x3) x 1

Orbs (x3) x 1

Mystic Orbs (x3) x 1

 

This is a bit more than half of what I'm thinking about for the final list, some of which will be duplicates of some of the items listed above. An example of that is the King of the Jungle and the King Cobra. My wife saw those pics and decided she wanted to paint them. Actually, a good number of the duplicates fall in the same category. The wife wants to paint them. Just over two months to go . . .

I snuck in another order:

 

Mossbeard, Treeman x1
Baba Yaga's Hut x1
Skeletal Dragon x1
Blacksting, Wyvern x1
Nyarlathotep x1
Argent x1

 

That brings me well beyond what I thought I would be able to afford, but not to the total that I would like to be able to afford.

 

Hopefully we get a decent warning before it closes.

      A DCC RPG boxed setting for Lankhmar, officially licensed by the estate of Fritz Leiber. Adventure with Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser!

       
      There are three basic pledge levels:
      The PDF pledge level includes an electronic edition of the final boxed set. (Obviously there will be no box!) This level does not include any physical rewards, add-ons or stretch goals. The boxed set includes the core boxed set as described above. All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. Some of the physical stretch goals will apply to this level, generally those that fit in the box. The final level includes the boxed set as well as the "print pack." All electronic stretch goals (PDFs) will apply to this level. All of the physical stretch goals will apply, as well. Those that do not fit in the box will be shipped in a separate "print pack." See below for more information on these stretch goals.  
      Stretch Goals
      DCC Lankhmar continues a long tradition in RPG gaming, and we want to do right by the estate of Fritz Leiber. The stretch goals associated with this Kickstarter will help create an even more amazing tribute to the world of Fafhrd and the Gray Mouser.
      Stretch goals fall into three categories:
      PDF stretch goals that all backers receive Print stretch goals that can fit into the boxed set, which will be included with any pledge that has the physical boxed set The "Print Pack," which is a printed collection of the stretch goals which don't fit in the boxed set Here is a rough outline of possible stretch goals, which may evolve as the Kickstarter continues.
      At $40,000: Cleared! We will add a new Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $60,000: We will print the poster map larger (included in boxed set)
      At $80,000: We will add a second Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $100,000: We will add a supplement called "A Dozen Lankhmar Locations," which will provide information, maps, and floorplans on setting adventures in a dozen famous Lankhmar locales (including the Silver Eel!) (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $120,000: We will add a third Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $140,000: We will add a supplement called "Random NPCs in Lankhmar," which will provide tables and information for generating random NPCs that your PCs can encounter in Lankhmar (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $160,000: We will add a fourth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $180,000: We will add a Lankhmar-themed three-panel Judges Screen (PDF for all backers; print copy in the boxed set)
      At $200,000: We will add a fifth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $220,000: We will add a cloth map in the boxed set (print copy in the boxed set)
      At $240,000: We will add a sixth Lankhmar adventure module (PDF for all backers; print copy in the Print Pack)
      At $250,000: We will add send Michael Curtis to Houston for a week to research the Fritz Leiber archives in the University of Houston. We anticipate this may result in a new product of some kind to be delivered to backers of this Kickstarter, but exactly what we'll discover in the archives - and what product may result from it - can't be determined until Michael sets foot in the archives!

      About this project
      Code Zero is a 32mm miniatures skirmish game set in a futuristic alternate universe. Players take control of a small squad of troops, broken up into fireteams, competing with each other to achieve one or several objectives and complete their mission. These combat situations usually take place within a theater of war, on the borders along the core worlds of various factions. These dangerous worlds and systems which are on the outskirts of secured core sectors are known as Code Zero's. The owners of the territories tend to change hands monthly since many of them are inhabited by second class citizens, those trying to survive and make a living in harsh future.  
      Code Zero is designed to create a cinematic feel of gameplay, while reflecting the dynamic ebb and flow of the battle that can happen within any given engagement. We do this by utilizing an action/reaction system, allowing both players to interact in a method keeping everyone engrossed with the battle. Utilizing alternate activations along with a different method to resolve reactions this can create some unique situations  
      The first of our miniatures for this universe are digitally sculpted, 3d printed and cast in high quality resin.

      This looks like it could be fun. Pre-painted minis with an odd choice for scale, 65 to 85mm. The early samples do look good though:
