Wasn't really a fan of what went down in the DoG thread here, but I'm curious enough to read the page. $65 for 9-14 models is okay and the Dark Faith and Institution agendas are interesting looking. Men of G.O.D. are also kind of cool.

 

Also, at 30k, Isaac from Children of the Corn, the twins from The Shining, and one other mini seem to get unlocked. That's kind of cool.

 

Man, it's hard to get excited about this...

I'm not feeling it for this one, concepts aren't bad but I don't like anything that's allready been sculpted. Plus I was here when the guy running this melted down over a criticism of this very game left a bad taste in my mouth. Bryan had to step in and I think the original posts were deleted.

 

Oh, this is that gentleman? Hmmm… that definitely adds a new variable to the equation.

I don't know what happened on the forum but I do like some of the models.

 

My gaming group is running a zombie survivor game and I think that this could offer an neat offshoot in the future.

 

I'm hoping to get a chance to meet him at Cold Wars in Lancaster PA in two weeks to get more information about the game and the models. Unless something weird happens, I will base my backing on whether the models fit into my collection (and house!).

Full disclosure, I am on Merv's Spinespur team. That being said, my name is also in the Warlord books and I am a fan of those.

Merv is a great and honest guy. He gets defensive about his game and his reputation and that is understandable. There are people who hate on Spur for the stories or subject matter and that is a matter of opinion and fine, Just do not hate on it for the mechanics, which are excellent or for the owner, who is passionate and working hard to do things right.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "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
