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?

For anyone who was interested, the clockwork dragon is painted and up in the preview gallery, Kaladrax is painted awaiting photography and I'm mostly through Nethyrmaul. I hope to be done with it by m

Hello everyone! First post here on the forums.   I am a homeschool mom, and while taking my son out to do some donations to a local shelter, we stopped by when my son spotted a local game store. H

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.

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

      Here's a simple one for you.  Painted the Great Worm as a Purple Worm to the surprise of no one.

      Couldn't find a better thread to post this in.  Has anyone else ever had mold grow on their minis?
       
      I have a set of bones that have been sitting around for about two year. They were super glued to a reaper base. Baking soda and super glue were used to blend the integrated base into the round base. There's also a layer of cheap craft paint as primer.
       
      These guys have been sitting on my painting table in a former sun-room for about two years. 
       
      I noticed the bases had yellowed a bit, which I've begun to notice on some of my other older bases using baking soda as a basing material. But when I checked on them I noticed small fuzzy looking orange tufts. 
       
      I can only assume this is mold.
       
      The only things I could think of to cause this are the baking soda or the water used to clean my brush before priming. 
       
      Has anyone else seen this?

      Hello again!  I'm back with an assortment of Bones that are serving as my Rangers of Shadow Deep solo party.  Decided I wanted a classic fantasy look, but didn't want to fall into the cliched green cloak look.  With that stipulation, I settled on a more autumnal color palette, and tried to keep this aesthetic across the entire party, without anyone looking like they were wearing matching uniforms.  I'm pretty pleased with the results and I tried to push myself with each mini.  What do you think?

       
      More Photos and Thoughts Beneath the Spoiler:
       
      I have only played a few scenarios of Rangers of Shadow Deep, and I'm honestly not sold on the whole solo-game thing.  But if the game has done anything for me, it has given me motivation to paint more and has given purpose to some of the things I already have painted.  I already ordered some extra gnolls and ghouls to meet the required numbers and will likely be showing off some monsters soon.
       
      Which character do you like best?
       
      What games have motivated you to paint those piles of shame?

      Hello Forum friends, I'm being quite productive lately  Gonna show you the most recent mini I painted: Small world Sophie.
      Ok, I have to say I'm in love with this chibi minis, I'm gonna buy lot more cause I find them so funny to paint!
      About the paint job, well, anytime I manage to paint Sophie, my color choice for her wings is always Violet (or purple if you prefer) and so why do not make my life easy and go for a complementary palette? So, purple and yellow. Easy peasy...
      Anyway, this is the result, I'm quite happy of her, I hope you'll like her too.
      As always every C&C is more than welcome :)
