  1. So is reaper taking this kickstarter serious or not? No updates on time, no images for the Goroloth unlock. They seem to be stunting their own kickstarter with their inattention. I am not impressed. Hopefully in the end they can figure out how this works so we have plenty to actually bid for. So far I am underwhelmed at the lack of communication Reaper has shown on this, which considering how bad the last couple ended mired in poor communication but had good communication while the kickstarter ran. We want to have kickstarter posts in advance on your actual kickstarter. If I have to look online for a video I have no time to watch to even find out what may be in this I will leave it at my initial $1 and just increase it last day if I remember or in PM if I don't. It is not like I have even seen more than 3, (maybe 4 if the mammoth gets a good scale reference) things I am interested in pledging for but I know the pre-kickstarter images had a ton of things from underwater creatures, to Greek mythology stuff, but right now so do not know what Goroloth even looks like!!! WTF!!

    I like to calculate what is probably a fair price for the core set and so without counting the Kobolds (which I do not because things of negligible value to me are worth just about nothing), and after my unscientific project I have calculated that the set is worth about $110 right out of the gate, and that is with no scale included for size for things like the giant, or the creatures like Maashaf. $110 is a fairly decent starting point for the kickstarter and I am curious. Now the actual value of stuff I want is much less but we will see, so 18 free kobolds I can give to my daughter to paint is not so bad. but I do not want more of them in this. Seriously stop trying to pad the numbers with goblins and Kobolds. That makes me think the set is being devalued. I would Much rather things like fence post toppers, or small insects be included. Those are nice little things that I can value more. But, that is not to say everyone will think like I do so I will just watch what is coming out and decide then.

    To be honest I like this dragon a huge amount. The body, the pose the mount on that log his face and scales. All of him. I will get him even if I get nothing else, of course I am getting a bunch of those golems too, so maybe the list just starts with this guy. In painting him I like the greens and yellows on him but I think I would love a pattern like this guy:

    I have to say I like the Amber Dragon alot more than Gauth, that alone is a nice addition

    I think this will be my plan as well and I do not even have the Brexit issue to worry about. The way the Renders, changing Argent size(which I still think was worth getting), and the flat out horrible communication issues where US backers had literally no idea when shipping was even going to start, and many of the delays while reasonable were so mysterious or mis-communicated that the frustration was pretty bad.

    I like this army a fair amount to be honest. In fact I had made it when thinking of what you were doing. For the purposes of your thoughts I think it will help a lot to have the extra wolves in your first troop. Their speed will help you manage the fights better by allowing different angles of attack. One of the things that makes me sad about the expansion factions is they are narrow in scope. One thing they do and that is very good but more general army lists not so much.

    I am soo glad it was just clan invasion timeline and had quite a few of the standard clan omni's. If it had been Civil War era or heaven forbid Jihad and after I would be in hiding from my Irate Wife for maxing out the credit cards, after all I have had 30 years to get metal minis for the original clan invasion. New stuff? Not so much.. Sooo I may get some bones stuff. But probably just actual model stuff, the only renders I really liked were the Dragon Turtle, and the Demon Lords from Bones IV.

    I like the theme so if you want to really explore the theme out turn one or even two of the yeti into wolves to add some reach to your army and harass the enemy with some long range swift attacks. Especially if you can work the flanks a bit and kill casters or archers bothering you. if you don't mind humans as bait and fodder you could try something like this: Icingstead - 500 pointsTroop 1Dorog Frostclaw, Yeti ChieftainOga Snowpelt, Yeti ShamanYeti WarriorWinter Wolf x 2Barbarian Spearthrower x 2Barbarian AxemanTroop 2Ice TrollTroop 3Winter Wolf x 4 This has the added advantage to getting more types of damage available in the same troop. Thus you have ranged, melee and magic damage to try and weaken larger targets before finishing them.

    I like the theme here and the wolves will work well with the shaman and the troll to keep the enemy occupied with their Monstrous Faction Doctrine while still providing line of sight. Some of your magic is going to have to be used by an ironskin spell if you are fighting anything with ranged because without any deflect or high DV long ranged fire is going to be devastating. An army like this would be very dangerous to yours. I call it my reach out and touch somebody army.

    Great work Dark Horse! I have not noticed an output problem but then I have a huge backstock of armies built up and have not used it much. Glad you do such a great job on this!
  13. I had 2 of the three including the Hut (my wife wanted it). Also my 8 orders seems excessive for just 19.2 lbs. As far as shipping right now my package rolled out of Oklahoma at about 6 am for a Tuesday arrival. Woo hoo 1k pages!
  14. I got my tracking number delivery on Tuesday. 19.20 lbs. I locked 7:45pm 9/10.
