  1. Manvsmini, the pose does look nice even if it is probably not usable on your standard board setup. Very spread out. I am very curious to see how the size compares to Maal.
  2. Not too familiar with all the rules so I am not going to name the other brand. But there is a new Tiamat mini being made. It is $400 + dollars. Seems ridiculous when you can get this amazing Bones 5 headed dragon Maal Drakar for $150. Just want to hear people's thoughts on comparing from what is known? Are you excited? Would you purchase? Is the Bones all you need? How does the size stack up? I have Maal Drakar but never had a chance to put him/her together.
  3. The only giant I had from the first set is the fire giant bodyguard and he is for sure a short large figure. Since KS2, I got the hill giants and they are easily huge size characters and so are the new giants of KS3. Truth is you really can not mix them together without a back story for while the same giant is so short or tall (depending on the norm of your gaming world.)
  4. I think it is interesting that 5e made giants larger but did away with the colossal category as some of the new miniatures fall into or come close to the colossal size. While Nathavarr from dragons dont share is the upper limits of gargantuan, T'raukzul and Ma'al would surely be colossal.
  5. I just received my box of KS3 and noticed many of the new monsters seem larger on average over the previous sets. I was curious for those using the D&D/Pathfinder size categories, what would you consider some of the middle to larger monsters of KS3? For example T'raukzul, would you consider him gargantuan or colossal? What about Ma'al the Dragon Tyrant? Some of the new giants like the new fire giants vs the old seem to have gone into a new size category, or do you disagree? Just a fun thread for some mini discussions.
  6. You did an amazing job on this one. The back story is great and justifies the non common color scheme. I do not think many owners thought for this dragon to be anything other than the dragon god/goddess (and typical dragon types that go along with it).
  7. Nice job. Cannot wait to see the finished product.
  8. Nice paint job so far. I just got my box in yesterday and opened today. Though I did not order every dragon in KS3, I knew when I seen T'Raukzul, I had to get him because I seen photos of the metal version before and he was pretty big. I was so surprised when I seen how large he was in person, I thought he was Ma'al at first. If a person is at all familiar with D&D/Pathfinder, it is know that the Red dragon is typically known as the largest of the evil dragons and that is what big T is modelled after. Also in D&D lore, the evil dragon goddess is a 5 headed dragon but with the body of a Red dragon and from what I gather, only slightly larger than the largest of Red dragons. So in size comparison, it matches up about right with Ma'al. I think some people are also liking T'Raukzul more so than Ma'al because it is much more common to see a Red dragon over a dragon god in a table top rpg. Cant wait to see your finished dragon.
  9. What glue? Epoxy should not have any issue with water Super glue
  10. My kickstarter 3 list was now able to be purchased but at a price of $100 over what it was before. Oh well, there is a high price for greatness.
  11. As the title says, which is your fav dragon from reaper? That you own that is. Mine is Nathavar from DDS2 because he is my largest dragon and though there exist Kaladrax I could have bought or even Nethyrmaul, they are dead dragons. Second in line is my Nathrax because I think his pose is simply amazing and so animated.
  12. Sorry for those asking for pictures, I do not have any and this site is not picture posting friendly as far as straight uploads. My large minis are not in my only AC room but room temp has been about 85 to 75 on average lately. I have not painted them so maybe ai could heat them up in water to repose, but they are glued together and I am not sure if heating them will make limbs fall off.
  13. The miniatures page wont access on my phone right now so I might be off with the names but Cynder and deathsleet. Also Nathavar (DDS2) use to stand a little more upright with his tail dragging on the ground, now his tail is about an inch off the ground. He is slightly leaned forward, but his legs are strong so it seems to have stopped. My large minis are stored on top of a shelf with basic room temperature. No direct sun light.
  14. A few of my dragons that I have based (unpainted) have started to bend downward. Particularly the tall upright dragons standing on 2 legs. Some have even gotten to the point of their heads touching the floor. Bones material conforms to gravity overtime. Have any of you had this happen? What do you do about it?
  15. So I am a bit late to it all as I see i missed the pledge cut off date by about a week or so. But I will just join in when they allow for more orders (at a slightly higher price...grrr). Just wanted to hear from everybody their thoughts and what has you most excited. I missed ks1 but got in on ks2. This time around I will probably skip the core set and grab a few individuals from the core and mostly the big stuff. I am excited about Maal, dragon tyrant and the giant worm (finally a gargantuan purple/great worm). Also looking forward to the ogres. I love ogres more than almost anything, followed by trolls. Not every miniaturr company does them well in my opinion, because I hate skinny trolls and ogres. These new ogres look beefy. They have that feel like they would scare the crap out of a group of medium characters. I am a fan of the movie version of Lord of the Rings trolls and how they are designed so I love seeing ogres with that kind of look. I know D&D makes their trolls thin and with long noses, but ogres are pretty much the same thing but fatter. So what do you all like from the new ks3?
  16. This beast looks also. Have been waiting for a large 5 headed dragon for years. Even thought about building one myself by combining dragon pieces. This is just awesome.
  17. Cranky, Awesome map. I like the way you drew some of the larger things like towers and the bridge.
  18. Krist, Yeah, the maps is what i meant. Awesome. I put a link up of my design from about 2 weeks ago on the openning post of this topic. I have since added more detail but my little town (or village) is playable scale.
  19. Hey Krist, Thanks for the link you use when creating towns and the such. Great informational source. Says a village counts as 20 to 1,000 people, making my little town a village by that definition.
  20. Krist, cool stuff. Have you ever made a playable scale of towns or structures? Hey, TGP I guess i was trying to combine multiple elements into the castle design like it was a castle and mini community as well because it is one piece. Also, it is one story aside from the wall towers at each corner. Now if this castle was being played next to my little town, it would really not make sense to have a market or even a lounge (which i put) because it is part of something bigger. But if it was a castle in the middle of nowhere, thats when i start placing these extra elements. But thanks for the info and it really helps. From what you have mentioned, i think i will place the library in the royal chambers section. Just to give you an idea, even though my castle is one structure, the room layout is similar to how a segmented castle would be with a keep and all. So like the front rooms are the more common rooms and the royal chambers can only be entered by the great hall/throne room so that gives it a sense of separation like how the keep is in a segmented castle setup.
  21. Darkmeer, you could always down scale a bit as far as how grand it is and you could pull off a small town or even a city in playable scale size. Just get some gaming paper, cut to section sizes that would fit on your gaming space and then multiply how many you have. So for example, if you made a small town on a 30x40 size sheet, make 5 or 6 of them and that would make up the city. You would play on one scene at a time of course. Cranky, how big was your city when you printed it out in pieces and taped them together? I have a question about my castle blue prints I am creating. I am trying to decide between the last rooms I am placing in it. So here is what I am deciding between. I have a market and a shop in the castle each 3x3 in size and a blank 6x6 space I was thinking about turning into stables. Now I do not have a library in my castle and most castles have a library. I have been debating between placing the stables or a library in the 6x6 space. But then I thought, do I need the market and shop? They were there more for visitors. But then how many visitors would be visiting a castle that would have to pay for their own things (obviously not a visiting noble)? So... I can only have 2 of 3 of these things. So which one between market/shop (both are divided spaces but count them as one because they are really small), stables, or library? I actually could fit a library in one of the many rooms in the royal chambers section, but then the only people who would be able to use it are the royal family. Is it common for the castle library to only be usable by the royal family?
  22. Hey mad jack, Good advice about keeping things consistent. I have been noticing this and have kept it all simple. One last thing i need to work on is shelves. As far as the design of towns... I agree with you that fantasy towns are not aligned with true history but that is what makes them fun. I finished the design plans for my castle in full, I just need to map it down.... as soon as i finish with my little town. :) After doing research on castles, i can for sure tell you castles like in lord of the rings and d&d would not have existed in real time. Or at least would be amazing feats. But they look awesome.
  23. I am sure you have seen those white cardboard boxes used to hold like baseball cards and such in most hobby shops, use them as home structures. They are cheap.
  24. Bane, how about a slow start off of 50/50. Partial 2d maps mixed with 3d items? Grab a tiny twig and grass and glue it to a base for trees. You can get super glue cheap at home depot. Cut your boxes you get from deliveries (we all order tons of stuff from amazon) and turn them into homes. Do simple home made stuff that takes nothing for you to do.
