    Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    Gotta agree with Kangaroo. It's hard to say the game is all that small when it pulled in 19k+ backers and $12,393,139 in pledges for the reprint (plus some new expansions). Some people suspect it may have pulled in more funding afterwords, just from pledge manager add-ons., than some of the highest backed board games on KS. After the original printing of the game went gangbusters, a fair number of board game manufacturers started coming out with dark themed, adult art games populated with highly detailed gruesome horror minis. Projects with creepy minis and/or stylized pin-ups started popping up way more after KD:M became a thing the first time around.

    Zombicide 2nd Edition by CMON and Guillotine Games

    Thanks for letting us know. I went down to $1. I'll have a look at the shipping cost and if it's something I can handle, I'll up my pledge for the goodies.

    Zombicide 2nd Edition by CMON and Guillotine Games

    Whoa, was it $42 shipping in the US? If so I'll have to drop down to $1 and see what shipping will really be in the pledge manager. The estimate says $15 to most states, but I haven't backed a CMON game since Z:BP.

    Bones and Airbrushing

    I also airbrush prime all my Bones figures with Stynylrez after washing and drying the minis. Works beautifully and looks much nicer than liner in my opinion. How much I thin Reaper paints (or any paint brand) depends on a number of factors. The needle size of the brush, how thick the paint is out of the bottle, how much or how little coverage I'm looking to get. It's different for base coating than it is for glazing or shading/highlighting. Thinning paint properly for the effect you're looking to achieve takes experimentation and practice, especially for brushes with really small needles, like the .2mm needle in the Badger Sotar. Air pressure is also part of the equation. It's fun to learn, but I continue to make mistakes and get minor splatter or spidering sometimes. It's a real skill. Just gotta earn the XP to get the various airbrushing feats. Priming with Stynylrez is a breeze though. It's just goes on so easy. It was an absolute priming game changer for me.

    Frost Giant Raiders & Winter Wolf (updated)

    Nice work on both of these. May I ask what paints you used for the blue on the first giant's quiver? It came out beautiful. Really gives it an almost magical effect.

    Acidic Ooze Yakuza

    Have to agree. The eyes really make these things way more spooky and adorable than they have any right to be. Easily their best feature. No idea what game these are for Froggy, but it must be a hoot!

    Mr. Lovely Locks

    Absolutely beautiful work on his skin, leather and bone! That flesh and those cuts are !!! My only criticism would be to maybe post slightly larger pictures if possible (might just be my monitor), and the grey fur could use more shading. It looks a bit like highlighted primer. It probably wouldn't be as noticeable if the flesh and armor weren't painted to such an outstandingly high level.

    What Happened to the Figure Finder and Search!?!

    Gotta agree that the search results are very frustrating and often don't show the mini that I'm specifically looking to find, even with multiple search attempts. The Figure Finder almost never works for me. There's another odd issue in the store. If you go to New Releases and click on the Stone Giant Champion it doesn't go to the figure at all. It goes to another place that shows other Bones figures but does not show the Stone Giant Champion. If you search for "Stone Giant" she shows up, but one of the three new stone giants that was released this month, the Stone Giant Guard doesn't come up since it was misspelled as Gaint. Now a misspelling isn't a big issue. I do it all the time. But it's odd that if you click on a mini in the new minis listing it doesn't always go to the figure. Just makes adding some of the minis and paint you want a bit if a hassle. I did add the stone giant to my cart and ordered her, but it wasn't a smooth process. Guess there's always issues to shake out when you update to a new site.

    Ghoulie bag

    Placed an order to get the bag. It was surprisingly challenging to put together an order since there's a fair number of Bones 4 minis that I'm waiting for Reaper to release. Glad they have the female stone giant in the store. What cinched placing an order to get the bag was that I don't have Fresh Blood or Graveyard Bone. They may be regular paints available year round, but you can't beat free.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    In again! Backer# 21. I never would've thought that the kid adventurers would be one of my favorite things in the KS but I love all of them. Also super stoked about the dragon bust. I want at least 1 extra just to use and abuse as a dragon color test figure. It will come in so handy for testing color combos before attempting a full size dragon. Also stoked to get my hands on larger mouslings. My eyes just aren't up to painting the small ones as nicely as they used to be. The size boost will be a big help.
