Alright so in a little bit I'm going to be pledging $100 to the kickstarter. As much as I know it will be worth it in about 7 months I still feel sad when I have to part with my hard earned cash. :( *sad background music* So when March comes around and I don't get my minis I'll be out on an epic quest to reek revenge upon Reaper for the loss of my cash. >:) MUHAHAHA. .lol Anyway. Cheers.

EDIT: And even at the slightly slowed pace of pledges, I'm also guess we'll have our answer for this before the week is out. :;):

 

Based on the average per day I would say we'll know sometime on Friday.

 

That could be a pretty hard sell. If the 'next tombstone is the highest unrevealed one' continues, we have to hit 5 stretch goals to find out what's under it, and 6 to get it. I get the feeling Bryan is savoring every minute of us trying to figure out what's coming, at what price, and when.

 

$1500 to go until we find out what's under the square one!

 

Not at all. The Kicktraq on this averages the project at $15.5K a day. The average is about 5 goals per $100K raised, or $20K per stretch goal. I'm estimating that the Mausoleum opens up between $400K and $450K which is the low projections for this project. That will most likely happen around a week before the drive wrap up and generate that last burst of enthusiasm for a last round of increased pledges from us backers.

Finally got my friends orders nailed down and we've pledged at Vampire with a ton of extra goodies.

 

Now the waiting....

That will most likely happen around a week before the drive wrap up and generate that last burst of enthusiasm for a last round of increased pledges from us backers.

 

If they hit the Mausoleum at one week, that will be an absolute coup for their marketing attempts, and perfect timing for them.

If this project is funded, how do I get my reward?

When your reward is ready, Reaper Miniatures will send you a survey via email to request any info needed to deliver your reward (mailing address, T-shirt size, etc).

 

So when will I get this e-mail. I rarely check my email. :P

Reaper, do you have a full-page flyer made up for the Kickstarter? I'm going to my FLGS in about an hour for game day, it would be great if I could print out some flyers to take and have them put up.

 

Half.

Two-up.

 

Thanks, Kit!

 

Wait, hold on a second! Doesn't anyone else see what a bad idea this is?

 

I love this project, but advertising in a FLGS for folks to go somewhere else to spend their $ is undeniably rude.

 

Also, even though the flyer is fan-made, it would not look good for Reaper's name to be on a flyer at a store that encourages patrons to go spend their money elsewhere. Not a good way to engender good feelings between the retailer and producer.

 

Seriously, Don't do it.

The only time I got to watch it last week was the weekend, so got it in my head that the time it took just for Orcpocalypse was the new norm. Is it averaging $16k/day, or is that the current pace?

They (Reaper) have a option for FLGS the 300.00 USD Undertaker level I think it is called. Only the FLGS can order it I think.

Within that first week after it's closed, by my reckoning.

Depends on how it is presented to the store. I fully intend to take one to my local FLGS specifically for the purpose of getting them to pledge for an Undertaker level. If they share it with their customers beyond that, that's out of my hands.

Not only that, the more successful the KS is, the more product the stores will have available to sell...

 

EDIT: what I mean is, outside the Undertaker, Reaper will have more models available.

That is the overall average dollars per day. Over the last week they've averaged $13,952 per day.

Not bad at all...assuming today hits the current goal [$500 to go] before the Klocke starts ticking, we should be at ~$290k by this time Friday...depending on the goal for the square stone, if the pattern holds that'll have us about to hit or digging on the one right above the winged stone.

Almost there...

 

Btw, I don't expect any large freebies and I'll happily pay a discounted price for anything.

      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
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.

      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!
       
       


       
      Hope y'all like him, as always all comments and criticisms are happily received

      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.
