  1. From what I gather, sculpts cost anywhere from a couple hundred dollars to somewhere approaching $2k if you want someone like Tom Meier or Julie Guthrie. Still far less than the “more than a car” cost of a single steel injection mold.
  2. Appropriately, one of the main characters is a miniaturized human...
  3. Then those millions of minis have to take a slow boat from China, and then clear customs (which has eaten up a lot of time in the past if I recall correctly), then shipped to the factory where the good people at Reaper get to sort those millions of minis into 16,000+ individual orders...
  4. Damsel Into Werewolf, an old Sandra Garrity set. Originally from Grenadier, the molds now belong to Armorcast.
  5. Mmmmmm force-meats, Hamburg steaks, and generous portions of lard. And a lot of recipes that sound suspiciously like grandma’s dinners and dad’s pies. We always had a (probably much more recent) copy at hand growing up. That and the Better Homes & Garden’s Cookbook and I think an old Betty Crocker one. I wish I knew how grandma made her stew
  6. Brushes (naturally), hobby knives, snips/cutters, pin vises, files, putties, glues... Files especially.
  7. Hmm, never figured Finari the Paladin or Tara the Silent for dark elves. Who else is shown there?
  8. This KS is supposed to produce plastic minis. At least, as far as we can tell. This statement almost, but not quite, implies otherwise. A not-careful reader may be “confused”. Agreed. While there is always a loss of quality when comparing resin to, well, just about everything else, it is still far less pronounced when compared to metal as opposed to board game piece plastic/PVC/etc. plastic. I can’t shake the sneaking suspicion that the creators are either hoping backers won’t know the difference, or that the creators themselves don’t know the difference. And honestly, I’m not sure which of those possibilities is more troubling.
  9. It appears these were for some sort of Pathfinder Kickstarter. SKU is 60993. Which is a shame because that has to be the most expressive, cutest goblin ever. Nice job!
  10. This thing: I guess it’s a crypt of some sort. It “contains lead” and is also trying to escape. These two facts may or may not be unrelated.
  11. There is a metal Mossbeard, but is not the same as what was shown in Bones during the KS. There’s also the Spirit of the Forest, which looks similar but (I think) smaller: Only you can tell us if you made it up though
  12. You ever get elbow-deep into a paint and realize you’re work is just lacking something? And then realizing that something is “talent”? Its one one of those nights
  13. And that’s in Euros. Going to be much larger numbers in just about every other currency. Far too much for me. Then again, the factions I might be interested in don’t seem to be part of the main set (or even offered at all). Faction boxes are the norm for most Kickstarters these days, aren’t they?
  14. Was wondering about this at the FLGS yesterday. They had two blisters of Bones zombies, one labeled “Zombies (3)” and one “Zombie George (3)”. Still not sure who George the Zombie is.
  15. Harry the Hat was the best part of Cheers He was one of the first video game voice actors I immediately recognized on hearing, as Bernard in Day of the Tentacle.
  16. You know what’s fun? Changing a tire. At 6:30 AM. In the snow. In April. Also, paying for new tires.
  17. You know, all this time I thought she was wearing a white hood? All the beautiful work elsewhere really attracts the eye.
  18. Thread title pretty much sums it up. This is Callus the Renegade from Black Orc’s Hundred Kingdoms, sculpted by Jason Wiebe: There is is a lot going on here, from chain, scale, and plate to all the spangly bits and Things on Belts. Tried to add some variety of color where possible. Not sure what actual colors were worn by Roman soldiers, but red is popular among cosplayers according to Google. I’m pretty sure it wasn’t purple at least. Turns out Dark Elf Skin is a pretty good approximation of actual gorilla flesh. It also seems that brown is not a popular color for actual gorilla fur, but whatever. I was unsure just what that thing in his left hand is, so I imagined it as some sort of monkey-headed scepter, and painted it up in Dragon Copper and Antique Gold. Mostly as an excuse to try out some GW verdigris. I probably miffed the placement, but it’s a neat effect. Very much a “nasty old penny” look. Did I mention this guy is big? Here he is alongside Miss Forscale the Strumpet: Comments and critiques appreciated!
