The duelling dragons are actually one of the few AddOns I didn't pledge for.

I have so many dragons yet to buy and paint, and the two of them are just not as usable for use in game.

 

quite agreed, but almost any dragon bigger than a elephant isn't used in my husband's games. Dragons are high priority simply because they're my absolute favorite to paint :ph34r:

Well, you're in the dragon painting game a bit longer, I still have the dragons from Bones I, II und III to paint ^^ But I do like to use them in game as well. Maybe you guys are just smarter than my players, and don't senselessly attack bigger-than-an-elephant dragons.

 

I was kinda on the edge with the two dragons fighting, since it is such a lovely figure. But in the end, it's good to have one big thing that I didn't buy, to defend against the claims that I got everything.

True.

But you do have a "better class of rocks" than the average run of the mill quarry stone or well rounded rock found at the bottom of a stream-bed.

Okay, new question time!

 

What mini are you getting that is at the bottom of your "to paint" list?

 

For me it's the chibis.

 

Probably the chibis for me as well. I was really into painting them for a while, then I got badly burned by a chibi related kickstarter that shall remain nameless. I haven't painted any since :unsure:

Is it wrong that I was trying to identify all the rocks? ::P:

I'm actually looking forward to the adventurer chibis. They're different, at least to me.  I think the core set will get a "meh" and be dumped in a box first.  I'm not even sure I got a Core. It might be all add-ons.

I was feeling the same way, until my wife said "Just get it and paint it for me to display upstairs."   Now how was I supposed to argue with that? ::D:

Probably the Thrasher Snail (Fan Favorites) or "dino dudes" (Lost Valley).   I just honestly can't envision ever using them in a game.  There were a lot of minis that came with a set that don't inspire me to put a brush to them.  Fan Favorites was a tough choice on whether or not to add it on, but the numbers finally broke into the "purchase" category.

 

I feel I need to clarify that all are fine minis from a sculpting standpoint, but not every mini will click with everyone.

I can relate to fan favorites, though I swung into the ‘not purchase’ category and will just tHe the things I want at retail

Generally, yes. I have been known to pick up a pretty pebble from a stream, from time to time, however. Many of the ones by Kally aren't from stream-beds, but many folks would look at and grunt. I think they are interesting.

Yes and no. Some of these are pretty obvious (notably, the orbicular granite). Others... shame shame! Sight-IDing is a good way to make wrong guesses! Gem ID class got nasty on that. Better to ID uncut stuff ::P:

 

The most prominent in the pictures are the orbicular granite, citrine geode, smokey quartz geode, picasso marble carvings, celestite geode, gray fluorite with (probably) chalcopyrite and calcite, sphalerite with galena on druzy quartz, and fossilized coral. On the edge of the granite is Mortimer, an ammonite. Mort - cuz he's dead. The minis on the lower ledge mostly sit on or near a slice of fossilized wood. 

 

Last on my to-paint list.... 

 

Uhh.... 

 

I think some of the assorted humanoids and similar size monsters. I'm more likely to just fling those around or give to friends. The chibis aren't my favorite, but they can be an excuse to practice something different.

Psst! The Dueling Dragons makes a good shared anniversary present - you paint one, your hubby paints one...*

 

The chibi miniatures would be on my low list... except one of those figures will probably be going to a ten year old girl. (Who will be exactly eleven at the time.)

 

The Auld Grump

 

* We weren't the only local couple to leap to that conclusion - Jon and Julie are hiring me to paint their dragons for their anniversary.... I think the consensus is that they aren't fighting - but nobody is brave enough to pull out the garden hose on two dragons.

I'm really looking forward to getting the raptors... Absolutely zero need for them, but I don't care!

it is indeed 'Dance of Death', not 'Dueling Dragons', so I'm going to continue to think they're fighting each other xD Dance of Death doesn't bring to mind courtship

      I did not see this posted anywhere so I thought I'd share. KAMB is an easy to learn, fast paced RPG where you play a Kobold. You die, a lot. They're celebrating their 20th anniversary and are running a kickstarter to re-release the original zine that started it all, but with better rules. I play this every year at Origins in a 100 player game called the Kobold Midnight Massacre and can confirm that it's a great time of silly hijinks and horrible death checks

      I haven’t backed any of Bears Heads kickstarters yet, but I’ve been tempted by everyone.
      This is the one that I give in to. 
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/98300108/narthoks-the-excellent
      But hurry! It’s funded with ONLY 3 DAYS LEFT!

       
      As nice as that sculpt is, it’s the sci-fi and bartender versions I’m most excited about. The stretch goals for those have been reached, but only concept drawings are available to show.

       
      I think these are great unique looking eye beasts.
      @TheAuldGrump maybe something you could use for your campaign?

      Didn't see a post about this yet:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/deadlyprintstudio/battlefx
       
      BattleFX is a bundle comprising of several 3D designs of dynamic effects and destructible terrain for wargames. ready for you to print.
      Every item of the bundle has been carefully designed and tested to be 3D printed. this kickstarter includes a STL pack of each pledge, ready to be printed using your own 3D printer - or alternatively, using online 3D printing services.
      After working extensively on the movie FX sector, we realized we could apply that experience to our wargamme hobby - and taking things to the next level.
      We have been working very hard and have already finished designing and testing every one of the items on our basic pledge, therefore guaranteeing that YOU will get it. However, we want to continue creating and offering you new, epic effects for your wargames - hence the advance stretchgoals!
        /*Included in Kaboom Pledge and above*\ 
       It has the widest range from trusters to muzzles flashes and smoky Fx!
      S - Muzzles Flashes S - Trusters S - Smoky things!  We are getting more serius here big booms and more complex Fx:
      M - Big weapongs, explosion and Sci-fi Fx M - Smoke Shell, lateral atack, Sci-fi barrier and barrels Fx  The Big Boys. It takes some time to print, but it also turns your war gaming table into a real battlefield.
      L - Smoke grenade, Orbital atack L - Fire, water and ground explosions  The Kickstarter Star Product, the Epic Fx! Destructible, reassemblable scenography and cool lighting.
