    The newer "medium sized" GW dark elves DoK winged ladies are on 40mm bases... They are the same size body wise as the regular witch aelves but the wings do make them bigger, so 40mm feels right, and they do have some difficulty being bases to base (ranking up) next to each other still.

    Variances in height are fine. As said, a human that is 5' is not unusual next to a human that is 6' or even 7'. But in D&D they would all 3 be medium creatures. The base sizes should be the same. Though admittedly because i use minis from several sources my medium bases are 25mm, 30mm or 32mm. I use to have a good source for 30mm (the old confrontation bases) so all of my heroes, major villains and important npcs were on 30... while mooks were on 25's. large i also do 40mm - 50mm. A lot if WoK large minis were on 40's... though now with 50's being more available/cheaper, all my newer large are on 50's. If the succubi/incubi are the same general size as a human, then i will just rebase them.

    Well... I see both sides. A lot of my friends just run adventure paths. The monsters are established and codified. So, while they could make up their own monsters, it defeats the reason they are running adventure paths... (quick and easy to run without as much prep). I run a homebrew game. So, I am much more likely to create my own monsters... Using Doug's example above. That ghoul could have class levels. Wait, its a ghoul Samurai?!!! Also I use monster alignment as a stereotype, not a hard fast rule. So my players encountering a Red Dragon (or the ghoul samurai) never go in to the encounter knowing if it is a bad guy or potential ally. Though I will say, I find things like the Wolf dragon/ dragon wold less helpful. As while I will make it a monster, sure... I will probably only use it once... Unless for some reason it becomes the focus of the game... and i dont find the sculpt that provocative to base a whole campaign on. As far as traditional monsters... If something is supposed to be human size, i expect it to be human size. If its not, then its use become limited. And if i see my use of something is limited, it moves it down on my priority to buy list. So the succubus/incubus on 40mm moved down a notch for me. Again, I could make a reason for them being larger in my game... but then would i use them in another game? Yeah these succubi also drank that akchemists experimental growth hormone... just like the ones in that other game... there really shoild be a warning label....

    Please do me a favor and don't make these awesome. I am not planning on getting the Greek Expansion, and if these turn out really cool, then I will either have to rob a bank for another $50... or deal with the trauma of missing out on them.

    Wow, lots of good stuff here. The ships look nice. I would be intimidated to get one though based on my assembly skills. :( the Cannons are pretty nice

    Blood and Plunder also sell packs of swivel guns. They are probably closer to scale with reaper stuff (28-32mm). I bought a couple packs of their light cannons. they also sell ships but the bigger ones are on the expensive side compared to reaper. So I looked up “armed pinnace” I think the brine wind small ship would be perfect. 1 regular cannon fixed facing forward, and 2-4 rear swivel guns.

    Was the barge from bones 4 regular bones or Bones black or something else? I have 2 Barges and didn't have any warping. I would have been happy with a pirate ship the same general size as the barge. Though, I am super excited for the large pirate ship. I still hope we get some cannon packs in the pledge manager. I can always use more cannons.

    Ok. So assume you have to add $600 more to your pledge (since I don’t know how much you have already put in.) we will also assume the pledge manager is open for 9 months since we don’t know exactly how long it will be open. so. That’s $66.66 dollars a month. Or $16.67 per week or $2.38 a day. So, if you skip a coffee or lunch or not see a couple movies, etc., it is not that big of a burden. I am about the same. I think I want about $760 in loot now... and spent $120 so far... so only need $640 ish more... so no Chinese food at my Friday night pathfinder games. That’s $20/ week right there.

    Thoughts, *The pre-estimate for shipping is a lot more than what it was last go round. I was at $960. and my shipping was around $13. This time I am at a third that total and 3x the shipping. No really a complaint as the shipping is still not bad though. * I wasnt interested in as much this time. I do like the encounters. They are more outside the standard and i guess thats why. * I ennjoyed the reaper twitch, but also missed the reaper interaction in the comments. I avoided the comments for the most part this time, but did chime in occasionaly. * I liked the social goals and what not. * I really dislike all the translucents. Personal taste. * I also dislike the goofy just to be goof minis, like the dire cabbage. * Overall, this was a fun campaign. The ship being included sealed it for me. Hope we get more ships next time. Well, what I am thinking so far: Kid Heroes SKU: 1509 $16 USD (x1) $16 USD REMOVEADD Holloween Free-bees SKU: 1518 $3 USD (x1) $3 USD REMOVEADD Shavynra the Slayer SKU: 265 $14 USD (x1) $14 USD REMOVEADD Arakoth the Ancient SKU: 284 $10 USD (x1) $10 USD REMOVEADD Pirate Ship SKU: 323 $100 USD (x2) $200 USD REMOVEADD Charnel Pit of the Ghoul Queen SKU: 332 $16 USD (x1) $16 USD REMOVEADD Shadows of Ravenhome SKU: 343 $14 USD (x1) $14 USD REMOVEADD Brinewind Expansion SKU: 700 $50 USD (x1) $50 USD REMOVEADD SUB TOTAL: $323 SHIPPING: $31.86TOTAL: $354.86

    Incidentally, I wouldn’t be interested in historic ww2 guys. If they had weird sci-fi or steam punk elements the. I would be on board.

    My guess is because reapers customers are generally in the fantasy market. Or at least the largest segment is. like Burger King makes french fries because that is what their customers expect, even though countless others make french fries... but Burger King doesn’t make tacos because it’s not what they are known for, and others already do... or at least they shouldn’t make tacos.... or remember the MC pizza or the mclobster? Yeah I’m hungry again. What was I saying?
