  1. First update from Other world

     

    products for you all.

     

    Since the campaign launched, we have secured the services of some new sculptors, including David Soderquist of Bronze Age Miniatures (he’ll be working on the Halflings, Gnomes & Dwarves), and John Winter of Tin Man Miniatures (some females and Elves).

     

    The rapid success of the campaign has also meant that we’ve had to come up with some new stretch goal bonuses for our supporters, beyond the initial $20k level. They will be:

     

    1) At $25k – Level 4+ – A pair of War/Guard Dogs – 1 sitting, 1 standing, wearing studded leather collars & harness

     

    2) At $30k – Level 7 only – Adventurers’ Stores – Crates, boxes, chests, sacks, barrels

     

    3) At $35k – Level 5+ – Magic Users’ Familiars (standard) – cat, crow, hawk, owl, toad, weasel

     

    4) At $40k – Level 5+ – Magic Users’ Familiars (special) – quasit, pseudo-dragon, brownie, imp

  2. Excellent that they have done that, you really get the sense of scale. Hopefully they will continue to photograph new large miniatures the same, these truly are the best of the reaper giants!

     

     

    t is a shame al the giants are the same size as in dnd they are all different sizes. I don't know whether to go for the existing fire and land Ice giants or hope that Julie gets to resculpt them.

     

     

  3. Not a fan of the lizards, but that cause I like ones produced by another company.

     

    I think the two giants are outstanding......It's convinced me to change my selection and get the other two pairs of giants.

  4. Are there any photographs of all the reaper giants together. I'd like to see size comparisons of the giants against each other?

     

    Or

     

    A giant with a 28mm man silhouette next to them.

     

    Anything larger than human size I like to see a standard human size figure to see the size difference.

  5. The only part i'm not too fond of is the head decoration, they (from the picture) don't appear to be integrated into the hair and just floating on top, other than that she's a looker

  6. Every gamer has their preferences. I, for instance, am personally a "modeler/hobbyist" who enjoys the assembly and conversion of figures more than the painting. My wife is a painter, who would rather hand me the figures to assemble. Luckily for me, that suits me just fine, as I haven't had to paint a mini in years - with few exceptions.

     

    My point: With over 17,000 respondents to the KS, there is not one single decision that will please them all. In fact, every decision we made along the way had one or more detractors, and one or more supporters.

     

    Also, I also enjoy pushing buttons.

     

    I'm the Modeler hobbyist also, I think the only bit I didn't get was if they are moulded as separate pieces. Then why spend the time, money to then stick the bits together when there was no need. Like I've said I can't really comment until I get them in my grubby paws.

  7. I shouldn't be in this thread. I'm a Bad Influence, as my horde of half-painted miniatures can attest.

     

    "Why?" screams my Garrity Frost Giant, "Why have ye forsaken me, Buglips?"

     

    Me: "Cause I started you five years ago and can't remember what colors I used."

     

    Cyclops: "Just be thankful he didn't paint your eyes, giant. I can never unsee what he half-did to me."

     

    Yep be thankful we ain't gods, what a world we'd create......the odd foot walking around......naked people, or clothes without people, a couple of random heads.

  8. Yeah, Super Dungeon Explore* is a game that'd be a huge shock to a boardgamer that isn't also a miniature modeling enthusiast. 45+ multipart models, with 12+ models with 5+ pieces each (head, body, legs, left arm, right arm, tail)... all loose parts in baggies. (though my copy did have an assembly graphic included; second print run) I prefer to remove mold lines as well, which led to spending several hours getting the models together before the game was playable. Anyway, I think a surprise "unassembled" decision from Reaper would be a real customer satisfaction disaster. Experienced miniature modelers will have no problem reposing or modding models to make what they want of them, but people not expecting assembly would be really turned off by 240 models showing up in pieces. Anyway, Reaper has said definitively that they're preassembled for this KS, just as the current ones are, so the question is generally moot... just interesting to hear people's opinions on the subject.

     

    So are the bones a cross-between pre-painted (although not painted) and general gaming miniatures?

     

    I'll have to wait to judge.

     

    if you are paying for quality maybe you should stick to metal minis

     

    I've got no problem with resin or plastic, but I do think that miniatures non-prepainted should either be molded as one piece or if not left too assemble. 25 years of mini collecting has left me a bit stubborn.

  9. I would prefer not assembled. Purely for painting and quality reasons, something that is badly constructed will put me off buying any more.

     

    So if they come pre-assembled this will the quality of assembly will determine whether I continue to buy "bones" miniatures.

     

    If I'm paying for something I want quality and if I got some Chinese kid half assed gluing stuff together then they'll all be going straight onto a certain auction site.

     

    Sounds a bit harsh, but that's what the pre-painted stuff is for, I thought these were just replacing metal versions.......probably my bad for not researching properly.

  10. This is the definition of mummification

     

    mum·mi·fy (m m -f ) v. mum·mi·fied, mum·mi·fy·ing, mum·mi·fies v.tr.

     

    1. To make into a mummy by embalming and drying.

    2. To cause to shrivel and dry up. v.intr. To shrivel or dry up like a mummy.

     

    So you don't necessarily need bandages, but you will need a super dried, shrivelled corpse.

     

    So different from a zombie which is usually wet and gooey.

  11. i want cemetery/crypts tiles ^_^

     

    Sure any ideas of how you would expect them to look.......a room with a dirtied floor graves dug, some with the coffin in them, some empty with mounds of earth next to them??

     

    I've done one crypt type room......what other types of rooms could I incorporate?

     

    I'd like to make a set....how would the corridor sections look?

  12. I've used a lot of paper craft 3d dungeons by stone edges but found it takes a lot of walls to make a single room, I started re-using tiles for quick dungeons.

     

    Got more in the pipeline, including a northern wastes set, and the maze.

     

    Looking at a whole new rules sets to incorporate warhammer RPG, D&D and bespoke stuff.
