Pledge what you can now, and use the Reaper Pledge Manager. We don't get any progress towards the stretch goals, but you'll still be able to help.

This one, maybe?

Anyone interested in getting that scult is probably much better off buying the Ravenloft board game.

 

It comes with 40 plastic minis, one of which is that exact same dracolich, but unpainted.

I didn't know Kaladrax was supposed to be gargantuan... looks huge on the website (but it's hard to tell these things online and all). :upside:
Kaladrax is noticeably larger than the Huge Red Dragon from DDM, but a bit smaller than the Gargantuan White Dragon. Kaladrax's base stone is over 4" across so a 3" base probably won't be big enough.

I said I knew of a Huge Dracolich.... from a popular prepainted line, now out of print. :;):
I had a Huge blue DDM, but IIRC I traded it off for a bunch of common figs. Still quite happy with the deal since the proportions of the Blue Dracolich to me felt wrong, even for the distinct shape of a Wotc Blue dragon. And I normally LOVE undead dragons.

 

And to be clear on what I am references on size catagories. Huge being the jolly green Giant in this photo, Gargantuan being the purple worm, and Colossal being the Red Dragon.
Ah, D&D 3.0 size categories, Colossal 8"x16", Gargantuan 4"x8", huge 2"x4". D&D 3.5 shoehorned dragons into square and round bases Huge = 3", Gargantuan = 4" and Colossal was written in the Rulebook to be 6" but IIRC the colossal red was on an 8" square base.

Btw, today is our first 200K+ day. ~$211K, with just under 2 hours in the Kicktraq day.

 

For those still "hoping" that we will make currently revealed stretch goals, let me tell you plainly:

 

 

We will blow by them.

Also, $2 million *will* happen.

 

 

 

Please keep your hands and feet inside the car at all times, and enjoy the ride. :;):

I see the problem as instead of saying I want a fighter with a bow. they should be saying I want a human male with plate armor or scale armor or etc. wielding a bow. Because a ranger is a fighter with a bow but they may be looking for different style armor.

Again, you're applying logic and assuming something. These people love the mini, and get halfway to the register before they see that I offered them a "ranger" mini and now feel cheated like a bait and switch game.

 

This is like the people who play star wars saga edition and think taking the jedi class makes you a jedi. When all it really does is make you a lightsaber wielding class

If you're lawful stupid and you take the jedi class, you're a jedi.

This picture is all kinds of awesome. Thank you for it, gives me a really good size of the size on Kal.

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.

      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
