  1. its perspective. i like larger monsters. past kickstarters had more 'stuff'. giant treemen, dinosaurs, more dragons, storm giant, and models that arent really made by other companies - their take on Slaad for example . The $50 sets had more interesting (IMHO) models that have not been made before for D&D as well (ie. eye of the deep). Also i think the idea of standards too high isnt really fair. I generally like high detail resin kits - more finer detail. BUT i do like bones monsters as well. To me, the Mierce Chimera is the best chimera (detail wise) out there, and its not even close. Also done by who I (and other company sculptors i've spoken with) considered the best monster sculptor in the model business. but , while i use that for gaming, some would see it more as as high end collector piece. which is cool. Its not a matter of a standard. its what you like. i prefer less, but cooler looking models . A forgeworld chaos dragon is worth more than 1000 humanoids/orcs, etc for me cause its cool. a true eye catcher if painted well. ive asked my girls if they like anything in the kickstarter...so if i listen to them, i need to RAISE the bid to like $500.... so im thinking to get stuff they want, try to sell whatever is left (as usual) and will keep a couple things i want. value wise the reaper kickstarters are almost impossible to beat, but the value is meaningless if the models arent interesting for you and the buyers market has (seemingly) depleted for it.

  2. there's quite a few indian god models out there, so not sure why it would be an issue. just follow the art accordingly. sanjay
  3. im not sure what to choose when the pledge manager is ready. I kinda wish i didnt bid anything now. (I lowered my pledge on the last day from 125 to 100) ... sanjay
  4. Come on leviathan, astral dreadnought and titan 🙂 Sanjay
  5. Buy/Sell Reaper Miniatures and other minis
  6. there's a facebook group for trading/selling, etc. Sanjay
  7. oh i didnt say you should care. you said you didnt know what it was. so i was telling you. 🙂 SAnjay
  8. Oh i wish the vargoilles were a separate set 😞 I see someone else in the kickstarter posts asking for a leviathan as well 😄 Sanjay
  9. Flumph I'd an old skool creature since 1e. Been in all editions. Underdark or planar creature. Can't recall which though (Looks planar imho) Sanjay
  10. im telling you all.. you know you want it. imagine 30-40 inches of this: 😛 SAnjay
  11. what they need now is a massive leviathan the size of the ship 😄 AND with spelljammer coming for a new generation, a massive whale like that could be perfect to modify the eyes to make a Great Dreamer 🙂 SAnjay
  12. i want a massive monster the size of the ship 😄 Sanjay
  13. ok i do want the salamanders. i dont have those... sanjay
  14. 'it may be. Some others may be like me. i tend to go with what looks cool and impressive to paint. when I DM, i generally use more larger monsters, (my group is much higher level) and i use a lot more rare planar type monsters, so i dont need orcs and giants. I need, as ive said, titans, gods avatars, demonlords, devils, angels, etc. When we start a new campaign, i hvae some basic orcs, gnolls already and we use them in such large quantities, we just put a few on the board and token/counters for the rest. i have no interest in painting 20 orcs. but painting 1 astral dreadnought or 1 titan or a cool dragon is worth it. Also, if i think its really cool looking, monster X, whatever X may be in this example, i may use for a contest, so that also goes into what do i think i can do that is something very impressive and interesting with it. Sanjay
  15. It also depends what people consider cool. we'll see how the week goes 😄 sanjay
  16. awww .. they need to make everything in bones black. its so much better/sharper detail. sanjay
  17. all the 3d print astral dreads dont look good IMHO. Where is the price for the astral? im searching but its not coming up for preorder. That is higher than i would have liked but ive always preferred cooler models than more. And since i mainly just collect monsters, thats quite easy to manage. Get a few monsters a year to add, and thats good. Ive still got a backlog from 20 years ago + 😄 Like i wouldnt trade my CMON Chthulhu for an entire kickstarter. For me, its worth more than 100 'regular' models. Same with something like the Forgeworld Chaos dragon, etc. sanjay
  18. well wizkids showed an astral dreadnought in the D&D presentation (spelljammer is returning - seems like spelljammer + astral plane/sea exploration)... doesnt look too bad. can strip and repaint it 😄 sanjay
  19. ok fine Siri.. i guess i'll get it again since you got them to modify it 🙂 Sanjay
  20. not bad. but now i have the bones one so im good 🙂 i'll say it again. some folks posted an Ormyrr. havent heard of that monster in many years, but that would be nice. most newer players probably have never heard of it. more beholder kin versions the slaadi lords primus thesselhydra etc so much stuff that no ones made (at least not good) models of. sanjay
  21. oh of course. but the question then becomes, do i care enough about the design to want to bother modify/enhance it... sanjay
  22. more monsters. i see ppl asking for that on the facebook groups and the kickstarter chats. But the types of monsters varies. some asking for more rare monsters. others want newer versions of cool classic monsters. Sanjay
  23. well thanks. seeing the resin master, didnt notice that. now that you mention it, it looks strange. i checked my larger resin dragons (forgeworld, some garage kits, etc) they all have it in their wing structures.... now this anni dragon looks strange to me 😞 so i may not get that either. Thanks alot Siri 😛 😛 Sanjay
  24. yay. Im a monster! Rawr.. sanjay
  25. ya that dragon i will get. right now its the only thing i will get. i want 3x faerie dragon but dont want to buy the expansions for it. lets see what Egypt has in store. sanjay
