Well, that was disappointing. Only $3.5 million dollars?! Man, we barely scraped past the minimum to get this thing funded.

 

Oh, wait… hold on… just a second… I might be off by a few…

 

…orders of magnitude.

 

In all seriousness, congrats and thanks to the busy beavers at Reaper who suffered through the last month.

 

 

 

So…

 

 

Is it March yet?

My favorite reveal for this entire kickstarter was the final Cthulhu figure. I immediately pledged extra to get him as well as the mythos monster upon seeing him. :) I've not been reading H.P. Lovecraft for very long now, but he is by far my absolute favorite author. I hope to get to be able to use these guys in a Call of Cthulhu game I run soon. :) Thank you Reaper.

My vacation just haaaaad to end today. I spent all mornign at work sneaking peaks at the KS page on my phone...it crashed my pathetic little android version of firefox more often than not. Surprisingly the default android prowser was robust enough to let me at least glimpse the totals now and then before crashing back to the home screen. This was a hell of a long day. I got home just in time to see what looked like us failing to meet the last goal by $26 wbile Kickstarter choked and floundered

Epic finish. This is not just a KS, it is legend. Gamers will be talking for years as to how Cthulhu brought down both the Reaper server and the KS servers in the finale bringing about mass panic to those trying to squeeze in that last upgrade/vampire. Psychology grad students and marketers will be analyzing the 45000+ comments and pledge pattern data for years to come.

 

Outstanding job, congrats, and many thanks to the folks at Reaper who made this happen. You all know how to put on a show ! Looking forward to those minis in March. Cthulhu will give new meaning to March Madness no doubt.

As soon as I saw Cthulhu, I almost wet my pants not only upped my pledge to cover him, I upped it enough to cover another case. Just to help make sure we got Cthulhu. My final pledge: $440. My final haul:

 

Vampire Level

+ Cases (2)

+ Nethyrmaul

+ Undead Paint Set

+ Marine Paint Set

+ Forces of Nature

+ Demons

+ Hydra

+ Steampunk Dragon

+ Cthulu

+ Ebonwraith

+ Fire Giant King & Queen

+ Fire Giant Warriors x2

+ Frost Wyrm

+ Jabberwock

+ Kaladrax Reborn

+ Mythos Monsters

+ Pathfinder Dragon

+ Spider Centaurs

+ Undead Giant

+ Vermin x2

+ We Be Goblins

+ Deep Dwellers

+ Fire It Up! x2

+ Urban Legends Sophie Upgrade

 

309 miniatures, 24 bottles of paint, and 2 cases.

 

That works out to $1.31 per miniature/paint/case.

 

Christ. This is quite possibly the best purchase I've ever made.

I was working & there was no way I could change my pledge, but since I have 30 days to add to it I think I will get everything I want (plus I'm ditching Sophie for more big mini's)

my total was:

Vampire level

all 4 paint sets (right now I have no paints.)

Case

Ebonwrath

Deathsleet

Clockwork Dragon

Pathfinder Dragon

Nethyrmaul

 

For a grand total of $267.00

 

roughly $.90 a item. Beats any damn sale my wife has EVER found!!!!!

      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

      Here are two little guys for the new year: Bones vege-(or vegy-)pygmies, sculpted by Kevin Williams. 
      In the game lore, they are plant creatures arising from infestations of russet mold, so I wanted to incorporate rusty orange- and red-browns with the green.  
      (And if you're still in the holiday spirit, you can sing a rousing round of "Rusty the Moldman".)
      I spent about 2-3 hours on each. 
      It was fun to play with a few oranges, reds, and purples, along with the greens. 
      I thought about adding foliage or other material on the bases, but decided to call these two done for now.
      Enjoy!
      - Derek

      As you continue exploring the cathacomb, you catch sight of a ghastly humanoid creature walk in your direction. The stench of death and rot lingered around its undead forms. You recognize with horror, a minion of the dark necromancer queen Kiaransalee. This is a 77159, Ghast sculpted by James Van Schaik.

      Well, finally painted him - and I'm pretty satisfied. I heavily borrowed/copied from this post: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84520-77594-solar-angel/#comment-1788530, 
       
      It went better than I expected.
