    Anybody else feeling really poor right now :-P?

    Well, there you go. I got one heck of a deal! Will need to fill in those few gaps in triads still, but I think I can handle that.

    So where has there been talk about the reset for the RPM? I haven't been able to find anything.

    Kit says there will be a "reset" option available soon, sometime today perhaps. We can't reduce our orders, but we can change things around and add to it. What? Oh, why did you tell me that? Must...remain....strong....

    Oh, the KS deal on the paints is still a very good one. However, only some of the paints offered are actually new blends. And I don't think it was stated anywhere that they were selected specifically for these Bones minis. The Undead set is new colors, and I believe the IMEF set is also new, but all the rest are from existing stock. The eBay pricing is not significantly lower. I just wanted a bigger selection of colors, so that's why I went that route. That being said, the guy definitely knew what he was doing when he split up those sets. You don't get any full base/shadow/highlight sets unless you buy all three packages. And even then there are some that are still incomplete. So, it's a good deal, but be forewarned. I even set up a spreadsheet that includes which "set" each color is in so I knew exactly what I was getting. Let me know if you want to see it and I'll figure out how to get it to you. Oh, and I ended up not adding anything more to my pledge. It was a difficult decision, but I ultimately asked myself if I'd really paint multiples of the same dragon or other beastie and the answer was "no" despite my soul screaming at me that of course I'd paint 3 or 4 of each. Locked it in, so there's no going back now anyway.

    *shakes her fist* So you're the one! Actually, I received a second chance offer. I wasn't the "winner". The stuff "Kruppdora" is selling certainly appears legit.

    Congrats Cheese! As for Savage Worlds, who needs encounter levels? Guess I'm showing my age here. It's a great system and I've always had a blast playing it. And finally, I think I'm only going to be adding $5 or $10 to my initial $400 pledge because the girls both want something. So, I'll actually be reducing my own list to add in another Kaladrax and the demons. Ok, that's not really true. I had planned $72 for all the paints, but then I ended up buying 180 pots off eBay for about $1.33 each....

    Dwarf Gladiators 28mm Resin Kickstarter

    Rackham had a pack of undead dwarves for Confrontation.... I think I still have a pack or two lying around.

    What fig would you use?

    I was thinking of something from Crocodile Games with a head swap....

    The Great Community Ogre Adventure (official WIP thread)

    I haven't had time to start mine yet either because of another painting deadline. I'm going to try starting tonight, but this could take awhile....

    Storm Giants

    Oh, I am SO looking forward to painting that figure! Even if my attempt will be much less impressive than that. Awesome paintjob!
  12. Yep, I was just checking if I missed an update. If we don't know by the time the pledge manager is ready I'll just get what I want for other things and worry about the rest later.
  13. The only reason I asked specifically about the dragons' wings is because I might want to use them for conversion work. So if they aren't attached, that just makes it easier and might alter how many extra dragons I include in my final pledge.
  14. Thanks. That's what I thought, but wasn't sure if I missed an update.
  15. Has any determination been made about if the dragons will be fully assembled at this point? Seems like a bad idea to me, but I'm not going to complain if they are. I'm just trying to plan out my "final" list for the RPM.

    Group WIPs interest?

    Mine is scheduled to be delivered today. I'll be ready for painting. Anybody want to paint the rest of the components from Mantic's Project Pandora game for me? At least the ratmen anyway? I'm not a fan of those models, but I did say I'd run demos at a con next month.

    03204: Battleguard Golem

    Nice job! Just a personal preference for me, but I'm not overly fond of minis that end up being predominantly a single color. So just to add a bit of character, maybe a few rust spots or "chinks in the armor" to give it a battle tested feel?
  18. Dan d'Lyon

    Group WIPs interest?

    Sounds like a good plan to me for the side by side comparison. Since I don't have the metal version everyone will have to just imagine what mine looks like.

    Group WIPs interest?

    My order is in...along with enough stuff to get free shipping. Now, what stages are we going to show for this project? As many as we want?
  20. Dan d'Lyon

    Group WIPs interest?

    Oh no! You mean I have to place another order? But...but...I just placed one last week. And if I'm going to do it I really need to get free shipping too. So...what do I want? Oh, and if the ogre is still in stock you can count me in too. By the way, are we planning to start painting on the 20th or so, or just start posting pictures then? Fair warning though, I have a crappy camera for minis.

    OK - Hands up those who couldn't wait

    Yeah, I picked up a couple gnolls, a couple bugbears, a minotaur, a werewolf, and some more kobolds. They just arrived on Thursday, so I'm looking forward to getting started!

    Kickstarter Discussion Thread

    Yeah, I'm still trying to figure out what I'm going to do with my pledge funds. I could do 2 Vampire, swap out at least 1 Sophie for Nethyrmaul, get all the other dragons (and 2 Kaly as I mentioned earlier), and all the paint sets. But I am thinking about the cases too. I had planned for 4 because the price is so good, but the extra minis are SO hard to pass up. So maybe I'll swap out both Sophie's and get one case anyway. Decisions, decisions.... Think I need to sell some more stuff so I can get everything I want.... How's the market on Dwarven Forge miniatures/scenery these days?

    Kickstarter Discussion Thread

    I'm getting ALL the dragons offered. And a 2nd Kally for my daughter to paint even though she's never painted a mini in her life. At $10 I can afford to let her try....once.

    Kickstarter Discussion Thread

    That's the exact problem I'm having with some Mantic plastics I'm currently working on. As far as I can tell, there's absolutely no reason they need to be in at least 4 parts. Unfortunately, I agreed to paint them for demos at a con in October, so.... But I am certainly not planning to buy any for myself.

    Don't forget that Buglips put so much into Bones that he can't afford to keep the stankiness on his shoes right now. Whereas I have my nice new stanky shoes that came with my uniform.....
