    28mm Hard Plastic Fauns

    Might be interesting for some folks:

    First Legion Fantasy Line

    Gah ... wrong thread - I'm getting old.

    The problem is ... I know this is a different company, but the whole thing (resins, price, freebie pack etc) reminds me a bit of Raging Heroes and their fiasco - that's of course not objective, even unfair. Purely an emotional thing. But I might be willing to take a chance again (as I said, different company, nothing to do with RH).

    BattleSystems - Fantasy Terrain 2

    Cardboard, yes. But quite sturdy and you can assemble them - like you get a large number of (different) walls, floors etc.

    City of Tarok: 3D printable medieval fantasy houses

    That's what I did in the past with other 3D file KS projects. When I finally got a printer, I had lots of stuff to print ... (and they have become quite affordable).

    Orc villagers ... that's something I don't have and could use. Femme Fatales would simply be "want" ... I also like the elves. But as others have said: They have put A LOT on their plate and prices add up quickly. I also do not really like the idea that you have to spend $200 before you get a single freebie.

    Devil May Cry boardgame by Steamforged Games, Kickstarter

    nope, not for me, especially as SFG are running it. One experience with them (Dark Souls) was enough.

    Depths of Savage Atoll - 3D Printable Tabletop Models

    Backed his last project (Underdark theme). Lots of very nice pieces. This here unfortunately is a bit to niche for me at the moment (but I see some stretch goals that might change that).

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Of course I agree that I'd rather have a Barge without a base than none at all. And I guess people feel in a similar way about the dragon. I'm not sure I would have bought the Hut if I had known about the legs and the roof not being easily removable. But - despite the "Risks" section on the KS main page - I feel such changes need good communications. It's simply poor form to change things and then say "Well, look at the risks section". They told us about the base of the Barge very soon (though as far as I remember not that it might get scrapped completely otherwise), but the other changes were not communicated well. KS IS about trust and while Reaper has earned quite a bit of it with the way they are generally handling their Kickstarters, such trust is also easily squandered. I have started to back some projects only with a dollar and get the rest in a pledge manager where I can see the shipping costs (been burned too often now). I know that this way my money does not contribute to stretch goals, but I also feel that some companies give a shipping estimate that is so off it's laughable (like "The estimate was just for the base pledge without the stretch goals" when it is absolutely clear that this project will hit lots of stretch goals). To be clear - Reaper is not among those companies. But ... I might also back the next Bones KS only with a dollar and add what I want in the pledge manager a day before it closes so I can at least take all the communicated changes into account. I do not think Reaper wants to encourage such behavior as it hurts the project when many people do that. It diminishes the success of the project (less stretch goals), it increases their uncertainty (I only log in all my stuff on the very last possible day). Therefore I hope they stand by their promise to improve their communications again. (if this post comes across as overly critical, I apologize ... I've got 50+ hour working weeks at the moment, a runny nose and an open-air gig to play this evening ...with outside temperatures around 10 degrees Celsius)

    Wow ... suddenly I don't feel like having a 3d printer running for 12 hours straight in my office while I'm trying to do some other work ...

    Nope, that's one of my gripes - roof does not come off, firmly glued into space.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Hm ... I did not understand that to mean you cannot remove the roof. I thought it meant "there is no interior sculpted, i.e. it's a blank space, not even texture on the walls" ...

    Thanks Chris ... I had started to doubt myself. That's annoying. Two changes to the hut make it a lot less usable (and at least the non-removable roof came as a total surprise for me - must have missed that information ... was it in an official update? I don't think that Reaper should rely on "Reaper live" to inform backers about such changes). I understand that changes sometimes must be made, but with some other changes (base for the barge, size of dragon), I'm a bit put out with Reaper at the moment (which will probably be over as soon as Bones 5 starts).

    I got the Orc shaman in Bones Black (they were giving him away as a freebie) and I'm a bit disappointed because mould lines, flash, blobs concerning detail etc. But ... the miniatures of the Dreadmere expansion that arrived today are great - they do not have those problems ... are they Bones Black, too?

    That will be very difficult as the roof of at least one of the small towers is above the main roof, you'd have to take that off, too - and take it off every time you want to access the main "hall". Furthermore, it seems to be quite rigidly in place, I cannot imagine that at the moment, but then I do not have a lot of experience (so even if it's possible, it won't be possible for me).
