And...furniture! Don't forget the furniture!

At 1 mill we get 5 pirates.

1.1 we get some dungeon IKEA

1.5 million will be tiny plastic franklin mint collectors plates to go with the miniature armoire that we get at 1.25 million

 

...I probably will be bumping my pledge another $25 (or skipping the miniatures case) to get the dracolitch, but still...furniture?

 

Seems clear they're focusing more on the options than on boosting the vampire set, which is smart because increasing vampire doesn't make the people who already bought in pledge more money like a really cool option does. Still, just feels lame.

5th post of the conjecture thread, tyvm. Yes, I know the new one isn't Kaladrax, but you got to admit, that was a pretty good call. ::):

You've asked for *everything* at one point or another, Baphomet. That doesn't count. Also, you asked specifically for Kaladrax. I told you why we wouldn't get him, and threw out the possibility of a new sculpt. I only missed on the name. :;):

The dracolich is cool as hell, but I can't shake the feeling that the base is adding $5 to the price tag. OTHOH the base does solve some issues with dragon sculpts.

To whoever said "Uh, look at the map, the big prize is obviously the treasure pile!" I give you...a chair, a candle rack, a small treasure chest, a slab and a tomb.

 

woo...yay...meh

 

You forgot the dracolich.

Everyone is going to react differently to different options. I was happy to see the cost effective dungeon accessories and have opted for extra sets so as to decorate the adventures with some neat features. That and the Wayne Reynolds dracolich made it very worthwhile to me.

 

If you're unhappy with particular options, I suggest that you set yourself up for some tried and true trading! There's even a thread already started for people to set up pre-trades.

Thank you!

I do not know if this has been answered before... but what shirt sizes are available?

Whatever size you need. We're not ordering them until after the survey.

I swear with every click through the Reaper forums this pledge total jumps by $100-1,000 before my eyes.

:blues:

 

 

OH and 5,000 backers!!!

No, I know it's there...but gaining the privilege to spend a little less than retail to buy something extra doesn't really say 'bonus given to loyal contributors' to me.

 

I may even buy it, but to me the *rewards* are what gets added to vampire. And what gets added to vampire at and beyond the million dollar mark is, frankly, disappointing.

 

Again, I'm not knocking the program, we're at like 180 minis for $100, so I'm happy and I might even get the dracolitch...but like I said, the actual *reward* is disappointing.

I complained about the pirates being disappointing for a million dollar marker and was told "ohh, just wait for the treasure room!" and the treasure room is furniture.

 

I realize why they're doing it. The options are where they're actually *making* money. They're nowhere near as much of a discount as the vampire packs, so selling you 10 cents worth of plastic for $25 gives them the ability to give us a ton of other minis for $100, and adding to vampire alone doesn't make people who;ve already contributed put more money in. The only way to get a vampire level backer to put in more money is to throw out cool looking options.

 

Options are what really drives the whole thing...I get that, but it doesn't mean I'm not still disappointed when the next two things after 7 beautifully detailed pathfinder minis are 5 pirates and some dungeon IKEA

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads

      A long time ago, in March 2019 to be exact, @NomadZeke set a painting challenge for that years April Fools Day. Paint something ridiculous.......20 months later I finally finished my entry for it He's based on a Pathfinder Huge pawn holder for ease of use in games.
       
      I absolutely adore this mini, in my opinion it's the best Huge sized dragons on the market and one of Julie Guthrie's most stunning sculpts 
       
      I humbly present to you, Kyphrixis the multi-hued Rainbow Dragon!

      It's the perfect time of year to show off this little collection of spooky minis!
       

       
      Giant Bats 44040

       
      These little guys are adorable.  They're pretty simple, and it's hard to pick out details in their faces, but I think they're fantastic little minis.  Though their size clearly makes them giant bats, I can definitely see myself using them as "normal-sized" bats for Wildshape or Familiar purposes.  I specifically used the Little Brown Bat as my coloration reference.
      More Bat Photos Below:
       
      Harrowgate Shrine 77723
      Next up is a bit of scatter terrain.  This is one of the two models in the Harrowgate Shrines set.

      What could it be?  An ancient omen?  The gravestone for a horrific creature?  Or perhaps the beast itself is encased in stone!
      It's not the most exciting of models, but I thought it fit nicely with this little set.  I probably should have based it, but I like basing scatter pieces on flat bases and didn't have one the right size for this.  Might base it in the future.
      More Shrine Photos Below:
       
      Werebat 77448
      And rounding out this set we have the big baddie: the werebat!

      I really like how dynamic this guy is.  Really get the sense he's about to lunge at you, or take off to the skies.  I painted him up like the giant bats.  Don't love the paintjob, but it works.  I really like how his base turned out though.  The model comes on a roughly 1" circular base, but he's pretty top heavy.  I didn't want to give him a 2" base, but I'm really starting to enjoy basing these oversized models on 40mm rounds.  Especially with that tapering rim, they fit nicely without looking out-of-scale compared to other "medium" sized creatures.
      More Werebat Photos Below:
       
      So what's the story?  What would you use these minis for?

      Who let the dogs out (of hell)?

      Hi everyone.  Back again with some infernal pooches.
       

       
      These are the Hell hounds from the Bones 4 Fan Favorites Expansion.  They were fun and challenging.  All those glowing lava details were a pain.  I think I managed to get them to turn out alright though.  Also had fun with the lava bases.
       
      More Photos of the Hell Hounds beneath the spoiler:
       
      In all, I like these guys.  Their bases were a lot of fun and really pop from a lot of my other minis.  I'll be posting more of my infernal collection soon, but figured these were a great place to start.
       
      Which Hound turned out best?
    • By MoonglowMinis
      Hi everyone.  Got a couple of Cool Cats to show off today.
       

       
      I went back and forth for a long time on whether or not a wanted a group of matching lions, or if I wanted variety.  As a DM, I feel these would be used most often as Druidic wildshapes, familiars, or summons.  I also couldn't deny that i wanted to try some different techniques on each, so I decided to go with a Lion, a Tiger, and a Black Panther.
       
      Tiger (Reaper Bones Lion 77341)
       

       
      First up was the Tiger.  She was actually the Lioness from the Reaper Bones Lions set (77341).  Her sculpt looked like it could read as a tiger, and that was my major inspiration for wanting to paint each of them differently.  I used a lot of references images on her and the subsequent cats as well.  Really wanted to get the coloration right.  I'm happy I did, because my instinct was to use more orange tones, but in actuality, tigers have more of a warm brown color.  I used red-hair colors to bring out the highlights.  The stripes weren't as difficult as I was expecting.  I just used my reference photos as a guide and did my best.  I do worry that people will misinterpret the nose stripes as poorly-drawn whiskers though.  She also looks a little dopy head-on but I promise that that's the sculpt.

      Lion (Reaper Bones Lions 77341)

       
      Next up is the other half of the Lion set.  This guy was always destined to be a lion.  Once again, I'm really glad I used reference images.  Its funny how many animals we envision incorrectly.  I learned this lesson well after painting up the Bones 4 pig way too pink, even though I knew it shouldn't be that color.  I'm really pleased with my coloration on the mane.  The only dry brushing on this guy is the rock base.  Time consuming but worth the result.  I think the muscle highlights look pretty natural.

      Black Panther (Legend of Drizzt Board Game - Guenhwyvar)

       
      And finally we have the Black Panther.
       
      Fun Fact:
      Did you know that there is no such animal as a Black Panther?  It is just a nickname for melanistic variants of any Panthera species, specifically Leopards and Jaguars.
       
      This model is from The Legend of Drizzt Board Game by Wizards of the Coast.  I have not read a single Drizzt Do'Urden book, but I believe the black panther, Guenhwyvar, is the ranger's companion animal.  Anyways, that was influence enough to paint her up in that style.  I believe I used mostly Black Jaguars as inspiration, though the markings became less important than getting the highlight colors right.  I ended up using Reaper's Dark Elf Skin colors to highlight the black, which is amusing considering Drizzt's race.  I added some mottled spotting afterwards, trying to imply the pattern more than paint each individual spot.  I think I managed to imply muscle, fur, and spots without losing the dark shade of black I wanted.  Pretty happy, especially since this sculpt was my least favorite of the bunch.
