  1. A number of years ago, there was a KS from Defiance Games for a set of egg-walker powered armor suits - lower-tech suits that were driven, instead of worn, but not-quite up to the standards of Appleseed Landmates or the worn TAG systems of Infinity. Unfortunately, it ended up being ghostware - the designer never got paid, and nobody ever got any suits. Until, it appears, now. Following their recent trend of resurrecting minis sets from failed or partially-failed Kickstarters, the madlads at Impact! Miniatures have purchased the rights to produce these suits from the designer, Tim Barry, in all their hard-boiled fury! And if you're an original backer of the Defiance Games KS, they have a tier for you, to try and make things right. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/impactminiatures/power-armor-hardsuits-and-27-mecha-minis-stl-and-physical/description (you can also pick up STLs of the WHISPER mechs they produce, or physical models, if you want).
  2. Evening all! So my last little mini is a Stonehaven Miniatures Firbolg Druid (at least I think she's a druid) that was digitally sculpted by Mike Evans and is one of the miniatures available in the Kickstarter he's got going on right now. If you're into digital printing it might be worth having a look at his Kickstarter. Anyhoos, here she is, and I'm actually pretty glad at how she came out: Normally I don't take so many angles, but with her pose it seems to be worth it. I'm used to the traditional metal Stonehaven which are a little flat, almost always being a single piece of metal, and of course Ral Partha, so her very "unflat" pose made different angles seem worth it. This one also kind of makes me want to tackle the Bones V firbolgs, but will take a while to get around to them I'm guessing. I see a few little spots where I could improve, but overall ended up pretty satisfied with this one. And being she's a Firbolg, she was a larger figure, which probably made it a bit of a relaxing experience! Anyways, if you like Mike Evan's sculpts, go check out his Kickstarter he's running right now. I'm off for a week to go on vacation out in Colorado, but when I get back I'll probably grab another one of these 3D printed sculpts and work on it as well soon. Which another point, I'm going on vacation for a week. Wouldn't it almost be logical and most relaxing if I were to take paints and minis with me to just relax and paint in all the leisure time I'm going to have next week? Just have a feeling that my significant other wouldn't be too pleased with that idea. Maybe not painting for a week will do me some good, no idea.
  3. Stonehaven Miniatures is running a new Kickstarter, their first to focus on digital files for 3D printing. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/stonehavenmini/stonehaven-heroes-3d-printable-miniatures/description The majority of the core set is updates from their Patreon, focusing on getting a delivery system going for post-Patreon: Stretch goals are all new, and they're taking a ton from backer suggestions. I have a personal stake since two were added based on my ideas: I've been a backer of Stonehaven since their very first Dwarf Adventurers set, and I'm glad to see their expansion into digital. Everything I've printed from them has been excellent sculpt and support wise.
  4. Hi everyone!!!

Thank you in advance for the interest and support Cheers YouCut_20220830_143803649.mp4
  5. Great fit for all post-apo games and TTRPG and already funded. Check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pharaohsworkshop/wasteland-container-house-3-pay-what-you-want?ref=8n04ou
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/johnbearross/the-28mm-scorpionmech Story Eerie in the contrast of their lethal size and silent movement, ScorpionMechs are deployed on the orbital and planetside battlefield when no quarter is to be given to the enemy, and none expected. They're colony killers. You send them in when you want the enemy base and any feeble defenders protecting it razed to the ground. These scuttling terrors can chop enemy armors in half in close quarters or pound them to pieces from a distance. Using a variety of modular payloads, the ScorpionMech can tailor its weapons suite to the mission, whether it be cold, quiet up-close killing, napalm and gatling cascades at ballistic distances, or missiles beyond the horizon. (Pre-production 28mm ScorpionMech sample shown with additional Viper Suit weaponry. Waldo and PugBots shown for size ref) Though they usually make their way overland to the target, there are rumors of ScorpionMechs deploying from orbit with bolted-on belly packs containing fuel and maneuvering thrusters. The thought of an orbital insertion of these lethal machines is terrifying, but not beyond reason. There is even a confirmed case of a jetpack-equipped ScorpionMech being used to rip a pirate raider's ship to pieces during an attempted boarding action. Needless to say, scratch one pirate ship. Viper suit pilots may try and put a brave face on it, but when faced with a ScorpionMech, they know that the best place to be is somewhere else.
  7. Hello everybody, related to the Kickstarter, but also just some really nice videos that Ral Partha Legacy did. These are a number of interviews with Tom Meier, the sculptor behind the new miniatures and basically behind Ral Partha itself since the seventies, as well as the "discoverer" (can't really say inventory) of how green stuff can be used to sculpt miniatures: https://www.youtube.com/c/RalParthaLegacyLTD/videos Have a look, some videos are longer than others, but all worth seeing if you're interested in miniatures, sculpting, the history of miniatures, et cetera!
  8. Great fit for all post-apo games and TTRPG and already funded. Check it out! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pharaohsworkshop/wasteland-container-house-2-pay-what-you-want?ref=dkidw3
  9. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2139148164/going-native-rise-of-the-city-states I'm just gonna let them sell it: Story This Kickstarter campaign is intended to expand the Going Native line of models. We have a lot of new models sculpted and ready to be cast, along with scores of newly designed models that are ready to head off to the sculptors. We are doing a lot of new things with this campaign than we have done with earlier campaigns. So lets get started - Rise of the City States In the Americas, as in Europe, powerful states would rise out of small chiefdoms or towns. These states were mighty cities with formidable militaries often lead by savvy and charismatic kings, queens or princes. While we will stretch beyond this from time to time, the City States will be the main theme of this campaign. Physical Products Unlike Kickstarter campaigns, all of my models and kit Physical products and not printable files. The vast majority of my models have be hand sculpted and classically cast. This campaign is very much a celebration of craftsmanship. Man sized models are planned to be spun cast in metal. The larger than man sized models will be cast in resin. It's shiny. There's a guy riding a giant starfish. How can you go wrong with that? >.>

  13. Another fun project from Midlam, this time Gnome and Halfling Children. Unlike most of their previous projects, they're having multiple stretch goals. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1662635043/gnome-and-halfling-children/description Story Most Halfling children (or Quarterlings) lead a happy carefree existence in the sleepy backwaters of the halfling lands, in preparation for their happy care free adulthood that they will spend in those same lands. Gnome Children (or Gnomelings) generally play around their Gnome hill homes, told not to go too far, but equally, not to hang around inside the hill getting in everyone's way. Quarterlings and Gnomelings Welcome to our latest project, where we bring you the much anticipated junior Gnomes and Halflings! These compliment Midlam Miniatures' large and growing range of Adult Gnomes and Halflings. Here you can back one, the other, or both sets! Stretch Goal Levels #1 - #3 Unlocked! Stretch Goals Unlike most of our Kickstarters which offer 1 or perhaps 2 miniatures, we are going to add a Halfling and Gnome Child miniature for ever £1000 we reach, until the classes are empty and we have run out of miniatures. Some stretch goal miniatures might be bigger than others and may count as two stretch goals (over £2000) due to their size and weight.
  14. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kikidoodle/into-the-void-a-black-cat-enamel-pin-series/description Sod all to do with gaming, but I know we've got cat people with their own voids at home; and some of you might be into pins and need a Void of Blep of your own. Or.. heck, I'unno. Maybe you need void stickers or something.
  15. Latest Zombicide game up on Kickstarter https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/marvel-zombies-zombicide Not cheap, but already well over target Ends Feb 4th, delivery June 2023
  16. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1520354196/osmoticmeld?ref=user_menu Osmoticmeld is an experiment! It is a collaborative partnership between the renowned artist Ian Miller and [John Robertson], and was born of a serendipitous meeting over social media many moons ago. I must also extend special thanks to both Sebastian Czarnecki and David Pauwels, they have been incredibly generous with their time in giving advice, support and guidance: Seb’s also designed our website and David’s done some fabulous work with his hair sticks! I've been following these on facebook for what seems like ages as they've been sculpted and am impresses with how close they are to the Ian Miller artwork that inspired them

  19. Greetings all, This is Ed Pugh making this post~ This weekend, I sat down and read several weeks’ worth of posts. (I would like to call out Andrew Miller and his post made to the tune of John Lennon’s song “Imagine”. Fun stuff!) I would like to thank ALL of the people making comments here. I especially focused on comments made by upset backers. Your comments are helpful, and this is how we learn. We might not be able to fix everyone’s problems at this time, but they will all be addressed in future planning discussions. Now down to business. I’m making this post because I realized last night that in the rush to get everything going, no one was assigned to monitor the KS comments. In the past, that duty fell on the shoulders of Matt Clark, but he retired last year. That’s on us and we will have someone dedicated to poking their head in here. UPDATES: “Official” updates occur twice a month on the KS Updates Section. Everything that is important is in these updates. We will also answer questions, show pictures, promote, and discuss the KS on all our social media platforms. Because a lot can occur during the two-week intervals between Official Updates, many pictures, discussions, and information not contained in the prior Official Update will show up on these social media sites. In the end, if ALL you read are the Official Updates you will receive more than enough information to be up to date. While this is not an official update, I’m going to shed some light on a few things. 1) What should I do about defects, missing parts, or missing order items? Send an email to our customer service department at [email protected] Our team will take care of you. 2) UPS just sent me a notification that my order is going to my old address. What should I do? Go to UPS MyChoice and redirect it https://www.ups.com/us/en/services/tracking/mychoice.page? 3) What are the EU and UK start dates? We are confirming AU is still July 5th. The UK has their container and is getting ready, but no hard date at this moment. We will have one next week. 4) Where is the last container for the US Warehouse? The last container is still stuck in Los Angeles. We are working each day to break this log jam. I hope for word on Tuesday when everyone returns back to work. 5) Why are some Waves going back and forth? Shipments are combined and stacked in the order pulling queue. They are then printed in batches. “Wave hopping” sometimes does occur. Simple examples that can cause this are the picker/puller grabs a pull ticket from the wrong stack or from the back of the stack (printed pull tickets are stacked in a tray on their sides). We try our best. The good news is that we are usually done pulling in a few weeks. 6) Why is Canadian shipping different this time? We have used UPS to get shipments into Canada every KS except KS1. UPS prepares shipping options based on the data for Canada. Location, package count, sizes, weights etc. They in turn present the options to us. We will generally choose the cheapest option that still balances service with price. In the past it was cheaper for us to use the service in which we imported the packages to ourselves as a non-resident importer. This option required Reaper to pay the 5% GST as the importer. We were unable to collect or bill backers for the 5% GST we paid as we are not registered with Canada to collect anything. In summary, it was cheaper for us to pay the GST to send your package. I do not know what changed between Canada and the USA, but this time the service we used in the past was substantially more expensive than direct service. Direct service is a better option and came with better tracking and UPSMyChoice. There are NO duties on US products. In the end, you are paying your local sales tax and GST and an entry fee based on the size of your order. I want to thank everyone for their participation and support of the Kickstarter. Please continue to post your comments. They do all get read. Please stay safe~
  20. Previews for Reaper's June releases just went up in the "Previews" section, and they're from the Bones 5 Kickstarter. Granted, there's still April and May unaccounted for, but there are a number of large models from the Bones 4 Kickstarter that haven't been released at retail yet. We already know they're suggesting that the Stygian Barge may never be released, but I'm hoping most of the rest will be. By my count, all of these haven't hit the game stores yet: Narglauth Dragon Turtle Agramon, Duke of Hell Blacksting Wyvern All of the Fantasy Scenics Thunderfoot Behemoth Blacktooth Terror Dance of Death Mossbeard Treeman Skeletal Dragon Nyarlathotep Argent Gauth Am I missing anything? Any word from Reaper about whether or not these will ever be available againt, outside of the Bones 4 Kickstarter?

  22. Hello people! i would like to share with you an upcoming Kickstarter campaign that will start on April 20 and last until May 10. This is the preview page https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joygamesinteractive/the-holy-roman-empire?ref=d1ay07&token=6758305e As the title says, it will offer Rank & file 3d printable models to make an Imperial Army (15-16th century Germany/Holy Roman Empire), including chracters, commanders, and special troops/artillery The main pledge of $30 usd, gives 63 models (core units). As add-ons, at 75% off (compared to webstore prices), there will be sets of models (from previous releases in the patreon) and scenery. The base pledge: There will be some freebies stretch goals, and other payed, Like ogres mercenaries(x3), Giant, volley gun, heavy arquebusier/sharpshooter, and moarrr!
  23. I was a little surprised to not see this already here. I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis. (And a number of buildings, too.) I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures. There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st. http://kck.st/3tbALxp is the link.
  24. I backed the Bones 5 kickstarter and was informed that my wave (8) will be shipped out sometime in April. Do I have an option when it comes to how it will be shipped to me? I am having difficulty with mail at the moment. My monthly Reaper mini order was stolen last November and I have been wary about receiving packages at my address since. If the kickstarter package can be delivered via UPS, I can have it held at a contact point. If not, I'll have to put in a Hold Mail request to my local USPS, get a PO box or hope that I'm home when the package arrives. I live in an apartment building with no security and no one I can trust to leave my packages with. I have considered getting my mail delivered to my workplace, but would rather not get them involved. Anyone else have any problems receiving their mail and what kind of solutions can you offer.
  25. Goblin Menace indeed! I was doing fine with the other group of goblins I did 2 weeks ago, but these little green bast...guys were not as fun. Wins: * Found an EXCELLENT new paintbrush - Master's Touch from Hobby Lobby. Dang! I've been missing this level of spring in the bristles and fine edge with them. Love it. * Tried diluting steel color with black ink to help with application. Worked great! Will do again. * Switched the Sta-Wet Palette paper that came with it to just simple parchment paper. I don't know who uses the actual paper in the Sta-Wet Palette, but that stuff is terrible! * Still using as much breast cancer awareness color pink (got like 4 bottles...need to use!) * dry brushing the hair came out much better this time. Lighter touch and more layers - worked better. Misses: * Eyes this time were more difficult. Tried doing those chibi eyes, but it wasn't as expressive this time. * Tried a base color of off-white in the eye - also didn't seem to give as much character to them. * Washed with Agrax Earthshade around the major bends and muscles. Didn't seem to work as well this time. I think it's time to try that black lining on the next goblin and see if Iike that instead. * using the new brushes have a bit of a learning curve to them. Much more springy and reduced my need for pressure, however this caused some interesting streaks when I didn't mean to. * I did it again! I tried using my finger to dab off an excess streak and ended up taking off some of the baselayer AND primer. With that being the second time it's happened - the best way I can describe what I did was the scene in Top Gun where the flight tower Captain gets a second fly-by. Overall the color of Goblin skin still works great, but basecoat of VCG Flat Green may not have been best. May just add black to Goblin Skin and then lighten it up as I go next time. Attempted different primers on them: Girl with spear - primed in black with Vallejo Black spray primer Chainmail goblin - primed in Vallejo Leather Brown spray primer (didn't like that as much...) Stone chuckers - both of them were done in paint-on Vallejo grey primer. (worked best) Overall, they aren't bad, but they aren't my best. Once I base them I'll feel better. Might even go back after a few days to touch them up to see if I can straighten out the things I missed. As always - open to feedback. Thanks for the tips on the Metallics thread. I put it to use, but still learning.
