So here is a quick question - how many minis are now available at the vampire level?

 

Both as Options and Standard :)

 

Without the optionals it's 102...

Right now, we've got 97 standard, plus 2 Fire Giants, 2 Frost Giants, 1 Dragon, and 20 Orcs.

 

Once we hit Mind your Manors, add 3 Large Creatures.

 

As of the moment we hit Townsfolk, it'll be 102 standard, plus 2 Fire Giants, 2 Frost Giants, 1 Dragon, 20 Orcs, and 3 Large Monsters.

 

They just keep piling it on...as that doesn't count 2 12-pot sets of paint or the carry case!

 

And now that I know what it is, I can't not see the shape of the case on that tombstone.

Ultimately, treat the shop with respect and there's no harm in asking....

 

...*Not making any judgments about anyone who's posted in this thread, since I don't know any of y'all personally (that I'm aware), but I've dealt with plenty of rabid fan-boys who had no idea they were doing anything wrong.

 

Valid points. The owner is always the best person to consult for something like this. I'm sure that the folks suggesting the flyer had far more in common with the "fan boys who no idea" than to anyone with sinister motives.

 

It's just something worth addressing since it's the sort of thing that can create bad feelings if not handled correctly.

97 miniatures are standard for Vampire level [source: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1513061270/reaper-miniatures-bones-an-evolution-of-gaming-min/posts/282523?ref=activity]

 

There are a ton of options. Fire Giants, Frost Giants, Dragon, Orcs, etc. Really depends on what you're interested in. I'm in for $145 (Dragon, Fire Giants, and Orcs) plus Vampire. I'll add another +$25 for the case if that goal is met though. This beats the hell out of GW stuff in regards to variety and price. Which means I can now get all the models for Warhammer Quest and DnD that I will ever need. Well besides some mindflayer esque models. Because every campaign needs squid.

Given the number of days left, I feel confident they're going to make it, and figured pledging now for the cases would get us there faster. :)

In GW stuff, that'd get you what...five dudes, three of which have armor, and one of which has a gun?

 

I kid, I kid...but the underlying sentiment is true. Price is what kept me away from Warhammer; I simply didn't have the cash to assemble an army. Even now, in my 30s and self-sufficient, I still don't have that kind of cash to throw at a game I'd only get to play once in a blue moon, against guys with much deeper pockets [and ergo much more capable forces] than I.

If only 2/3 of the backers pledge for 1 case we'll hit the next reveal asap...

I'll have to be in the other third. As nice as the cases are, and for a good deal, I've already got over 40 of the Chessex style cases, and my entire shelving system is set up for them. :mellow:

It's one of those games I'm content to play on 'demo days'...nobody in my circles plays either. Same conundrum I'm in with RAGE-powered games...no players local, so they get repurposed for DnD and Battletech nights...a job they're quite good at!

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
       
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
