  1. So, the video yields the following information: * the initial offering will be 10 girls, in 5 pairs of historical enemies. * first will be a Greek warrior and a Persian. Followed by The desert rat and an Italian soldier. * unlike the first Kickstarter, these ladies will have more fighting poses vs pin up poses. * they ran out of stretch goals last time and had to scramble but this time they have prepared. * there will be guest artists like last time. And some of the miniatures will be mounted on horses. * Some miniatures will also be dedicated to other games and have rules for that game. They said not just games that they produce but did not say which games. * there will only be two pledge levels, a buy 1 girl level and a buy 10 girl level, the 10 girl level qualifies for any free stretch goals.
  2. indeed. I hope they appeal to you. I used both the swashbuckler and Scottish girl as pathfinder characters. There was a stretch goal in their board game that gave cards so you could used the period appropriate girls from ks 1 as a faction in the board game, Anno Domini. me too, but the metal ones from 1 were good. I generally don’t like metal, but these were nice. They were multipart but not too many pieces and no super tiny metal pieces.
  3. Well, I am of two minds on that. The concept art is fun, but the more sober minis I can actually use in games. I don’t know if it’s really a matter of being lost in translation so much as they wanted to make a certain kind of mini but thought the more eye catching art would draw people in. the company itself is a historical rules company but just released their historical with fantasy elements board game. So I think they went in with the idea of just girls in uniforms. The concept art kind of does throw that off though. as far as resin... I would prefer the 28mm in resin too, as I much prefer resin to metal, but they stated there will not be a resin option for 28mm. :( there is a video in their Anno Domini Kickstarter update talking about this project. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263001724/hot-and-dangerous/posts/2895010?ref=activity
  4. Here are 2 concept pictures, followed by the actual minis. The Art was fun, but not really my style. The minis though were good. last time was this "54mm are made of white metal or high quality resin (you will able to choose version you prefer after campaign). 28mm are made of white metal only (no resin versions available)." I asked on facebook if there would be a resin 28mm option this time... There will not.
  5. No, :). In the first one, the concepts shown were a little over the top, but the actual sculpts were very good. I will post an example.
  6. ...Ok, perhaps "regular" was not the best word... :) So, Non flying Rex Monster... I like big arms rex, makes it more fantasy and some how makes it fit better in a fantasy army (in my twisted logic circuits).
  7. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1263001724/hot-and-dangerous-season-ii?ref=profile_created Just saw this on my Facebook feed. Hot and Dangerous was a Kickstarter from Wargamer studio. It was for 32mm and larger pin up miniatures of ladies in historical uniforms and armor. Pin up is not truly accurate. Some had poses that were not fighting stances but most were not really “sexy” poses, and all were fully dressed and armored... one had a wardrobe malfunction but not too terribly so.., Anyway. My Facebook feed shows that a part 2 will be coming to Kickstarter soon. I was satisfied with the first one. @Glitterwolf looks like there will be a conquistador in this one.
  8. Yeah, ok. Glad I didnt mis-remember. :) In the pledge manager it also states it in the description. This Bones 5 Option Reward features five sirens on a sculpted water-texture base that will be injected in a translucent blue color. Limit 10 Song of the Sirens Options per pledge. Sculpted by Christine Van Patten.
  9. I believe it was in an update. Will go look to see if i can find it.
  10. The Carnogan was never on my list. I just didnt want the theme of my army to be dinosaurs. I like having some dinos in it, but not as the main theme.... but... the size of the new model as well as being able to make it a regular t-rex its pretty awesome. I dont know if i would have added it still, but it is really cool.
  11. I have really been on the fence with if I want to add more or not on this kickstarter. Still a little disappointed with some of the drooping models from the last one. But I know I will have regrets... So fare I have * Pirate Ship * Shadows of Ravenhome * Demonic Temptation * Hench Women * Extra Halloween * Charnal Pit of the Ghoul Queen (just added today) Still have these on my wish list (i guess it should be my maybe list) * Dark Depths expansion * Brinewind Expansion * Kid Heroes * Shavynra the Slayer * Brinewind extras So $155.00 + $4.63 shipping I decided no on the Sirens because they are translucent...
  12. Was it the deck of many fates? Mine tore a bit on opening too.
  13. Received mine yesterday. Lovely cards. Glad I backed.
  14. This is my plan too. I started a DoK army... but the expense was too much, the witches / sisters of slaughter are $60 For 10... so I only ended up getting 10 of each. The doom fire warlocks were more reasonable at 5 for $35 being cavalry, so I have 2 of them... and then I got the cauldron and a unit of the flying javelin throwers... that was around $300 ish... the elves here are so much cheaper. So... my old DoK have become vampire themed. These will be actual elves. May use my old DoK exclusively for Warcry.
  15. If you are serious, I say go for it. Try to live there. You only live once, and if your wife supports you, then research how to do it. I am 44. I have been living back in the US, since 2001. Before that I lived in Indonesia for 5 years and before that Venezuela for a year. I met my wife in Indonesia and my daughter was born in Jakarta. I was an ESL/EFL English teacher. It was a great experience and the only reason we left was I wanted my daughter to go to an American school, and could not afford JIS (Jakarta International School) which I believe was $25,000 a year at that time. If you can afford to live below your income level for a year, I would reach out to some English schools in Japan. I am sure you can find sponsorship and at least enough money to stay/live comfortably. Especially if your wife also gets a job there. You wont get rich, but it would probably scratch your itch to be able to stay. I was 21 when I first went so was a poor kid any way. :) I was 19 in Venezuela... Was in Indonesia when Suharto was overthrown... Interesting times... Anyway, good luck. My kids are now 19, and 18... My wife and I still plan on retiring back in Jakarta, Or Solo.
  16. I guess I do need them... Or do I? I do! Maybe! Your not making this easy...
  17. Got permission for this from the wife. Its been a while since I have looked forward to a kick starter... so I hope I am not setting myself up for disappointment.
  18. The previews of the next kickstarter arent really looking like my cup of tea. Guess thats a good thing. Still debating on adding the rumbleslam team. But only really interested in Cleo and perhaps the Scorpion king... Seems like not enough to warrant $30. Also never added the Lynx girls or the heavy dino cavalry. Cavalry wise I already have 30... 20 bright riders and 10 Hex... so not sure i need 10 more riders. The Lynx girls are nice though... Just they waited too long to confirm we could add,, and now I am sort of saving for Massive darkness 2.
  19. Yeah this might break my CMON hiatus. Massive 1, was really nice. The minis were great. The game was fun... though only lasted a while in my group. the updated kind of hinted it was demon themed. Face your demons... sounds demon themed! I’m excited.
  20. With the name, are these supposed to represent trans or gay characters? I’m not really in to the figures but would support if it’s for a cause.
  21. The Fauns and centaurs are already available through their RDG gaming site, as well as Wargames Atlantic. Edit: I have considered buying a sprue from one of the Ebay sellers that split boxes. How Dainty? Do they look out of place with other 28-32mm minis?
  22. Female werewolves are a weakness of mine. Will see if I can swing that unicorn alliance set
