  1. Definitely been a long time since I've posted. Still painting away. Generally I paint the things I need for the table and focus more on just "getting it done," since I'm never going to do any competitions or ask for money to paint people's minis, though some people have offered. This lovely sculpt I wanted to actually spend time on. It's such an interesting sculpt and I really wanted to put in some effort on blending skin up from very dark to light (up from drab camo greenish brown to bright yellow, which doesn't come across great in the photo but looks better in person.) A lot of times I'll just use a skin tone triad and the contrast just doesn't feel like enough. I didn't want to just put gold paint on the trim, I've been trying to do NMM on those little touches as I hopefully one day work up to actual weapons and armor. I've just been working on blending in general, because I'm very bad at it. It really came out pretty decent. Photo doesn't really do the sculp justice, but it really is a great sculpt.
  2. This is sort of what I'm feeling. I'm ok with the base inserts, I end up cutting a lot of my minis off the sculpted base and butting it on another, but there just isn't enough there for me to be that interested. Basing sprues of interesting little items would be really cool too, or maybe something like the green stuff rollers to shape clay bases. It's useful enough if you're looking to get your hand on more bases, but I'm still drowning in them from the core set bonuses and the last base boss ks.
  3. All told, it looks like I'll be coming out at a little over $300 for this KS, which is about what I usually spend on Reaper's kickstarters. Only difference this time is I didn't get a core set, but that beautiful pirate ship makes up for that. Kid Heroes Armory x2 Halloween Knight Dark Depths Brinewind+Extension Dragonfolk All the siege equipment The Boat Still eyeing the Kobolds because I like lots of little mooks, and the dice for posterity, but probably not.
  4. Spent a bit more than Bones 4, and I didn't even get the core set. I blame the pirate ship and sea stuff.
  5. The most exciting thing about the brinewind extras is knowing that one day I'll be able to buy docks, tables, and chairs!
  6. Right now I'm in for: Kid Heroes Armory x2 Dark Depths Dragonfolk Catapult Ballista Trebuchet The Incredible Boat Since I buy mostly for use in tabletop games and I've got a ton of basic PCs and monsters from the last couple KS, I'm a bit more discerning this time. The only things in the core set I want is the armory and the kid heroes. I'm a little "meh" on the spell fx. I like the walls and the platform, but I could've done fine with just one hand and more ground based effects, like a fireball. I'm actually pretty happy though because instead of the core set, I can pick up the amazing ship. I'm eagerly awaiting the Brinewinds reveal, I might go in on that, depending on what's revealed. I also saw some carts teased. I'd be in on those as well.
  7. 100 for the ship? That's absurdly affordable for a piece that size! I'm not going heavy on Bones V, but I'm definitely in for that boat.
  8. I ran a pre-gunpowder game that used cannons, but the "gunners" were wizards and the cannons were focusing tubes, they amplified the damage and range of fireballs to act like a cannon.
  9. That ship alone has got to be $50+ dollar add-on, probably more like $75. It's awesome.
  10. upped the pledge in anticipation of the deep sea expansion.I don't do tons and tons of sea encounters, but I do them often enough that these would be pretty useful.
  11. I actually quite like the encounters. The troll one isn't for me, but I could use the spider one.
  12. I'm hopeful about the undersea expansion. I'd love to see some merfolk and sahuagin type minis.
  13. I'm not in for the core, but I hope they'll sell parts of the core like the did during the last KS as extras. I'd get 2 or 3 of the armory and spell effects and a set of the kid heroes, but I don't want anything from the main core except maybe the stag and the krampus.
  14. Yes, a siege engine capable of throwing a 90 kg projectile over 300m. I'm in on the trebuchet, probably 2!
  15. So far I'm not in for too much because I've got a glut of basic PCs, NPCs, and common monsters. Dragonfolk and and War Machines for sure. Maybe the Daimyo expansion because it would be nice to have more Asian inspired pieces. The core just doesn't have enough to pull me in to it. I like the zombie giant, the stag, and the Krampus looking thing, and I like the kid heroes and spell effects. I'm hoping they'll have parts of the core set separately purchasable like the last KS.
  16. Many thanks. It obviously is very rough, but everyone starts somewhere when they start a particular technique.
  17. Hey all, DMAgamus here. Still doing some painting, though I took a month or so off. Still slowly going through my kickstarter minis (I'm a slow painter.) Just got around to working on the orcs and saw that one was similarly posed to the first mini I painted, way back when, in my first LTP kit. I spent some extra time trying to make him about as good as I can, and tried some NMM and TMM stuff on him (I'm pretty terrible at both, but I like to try on a sword every now and again.) Still not a world class painter by any stretch, but I have gotten better, and it serves the purpose I use my miniatures for: tabletop RPGs.
  18. I was hoping they'd sell the gnome tinkerer or goblin carolers. Ah well, I've got to order early so I can paint the nativity before christmas.
  19. YEEEESSS! I know what I'm getting for Christmas.
  20. Yea, I'm pretty happy with the Golem, Every mini I paint recently, I've picked a metal piece to do NMM. This is the first one I haven't just painted over. Its real bad, but getting better.
  21. Hey all, DMAgamus here. It was the extra spoopy time of year again, and I always put on a special game to celebrate. WHat better thing to pain, then, than pieces from the graveyard expansion of bones 3. I present to you, the crypt at the edge of the wilds! The Halloweenies! ANd their minion, Pete the Grave Golem! Also, I've added on pics of the full board, for fun. It was a great time had by all. Album link:Halloween Painting and Set Up
  22. Some more basic animals, particularly a stag... .....and wise man #3, since Christmas is around the corner....
  23. Blonde just felt right, in a weird nordic kind of way. I think I put the paint on a little to thick, but eh, the point is to learn.
