Sorry for the quality (my scanner is broken) but here it is:

Sorry, no. The insanity spread to some of the people from Reaper over on the comments tonight...   Presenting... Pitamat   There's no going back now...

Blah, insomnia strikes again. So, without further ado... *cracks knuckles* Alright, chums, let's do dis. LEEEROOOOOOOOOOOOOOY JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENKIIIIIINS! ~~~~~~~~~~ Antonia Vogel about 4 hours ago

If CE2 and 3 aren't fulfilled, I can imagine that Reaper may disassemble them and sell them off as 2-3 addons each instead of 1 big addon, so I don't think saying "this isn't happening" is helpful.

 

I don't see that happening, since it could in principle lead people to reducing their pledges, and possibly re-locking goals that that have already been unlocked (though unlikely).

 

I think that if by the end we don't fully unlock expansion 2-3, Reaper will take action at the pledge manager level, either by giving additional credit to people that have pledged for those or possibly by allowing pledge manager money to count for unlocking the remaining parts of the expansions.

Fear is the mind-killer... I'm sure my players will all be flabbergasted when they see this wonderful, horrible, gorgeous, and ugly monstrosity being slapped down in front of them! Oh, so many possibilities!!!! MUAHAHAHAHAHHAHAH HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHHA HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH AHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHA :devil:

 

Sorry, had to get that evil laugh out of my system, I'm doing it in real life right now too! :blush:

Or they may change their mind. So far none of the expansions have enough for me to pay $50 but I would gladly give them more than that if I could pick sets out of each. Never say never.

You do realize that you can pledge the money anyway...and once all the unlocks are open you can either allocate that $50 elsewhere OR change your pledge back down to what it was. this way you can help everyone see what they are getting AND make a better decision as to where to put their moneys

By that logic everyone should just pledge $1000 or heck $3000 dollars and then dial it back to the $100 or $300 that they intended. ...sorry, I will pass.

I see this as the risk inherent with bundling your addons, but it's their show so they get to run it. I don't see how it could reduce pledges, since I'm pretty sure most people haven't pledged towards any half-complete CE's.

 

Even if they have, the pledge amounts will drop anyways once people pull their $50 pledges so why not give them 3 $10 pledges so you only lose $20 instead of $50?

Is this model appearing out of a wisp of smoke or is that his cloak that is all tattered up?

Looking at the picture that probably inspired it...

 

Cloak emerging from the shadows? (needs more translucent smokey purple) ::P:

.....some people have been doing that...and it does get annoying..but that IS how the system works.

*shuffles in*

 

Bluh, I hate it when I forget to set my alarm and wake up way late cuz I didn't go to bed until 6am.

 

*checks email* Oh cool, we made the stretch goal. Let's see what the next reveal-

 

::o: *drops mug of liquid*

 

*realizes she doesn't actually have a mug of liquid, fills one up and then drops it*

 

OH MY GOSH THOSE TRANSLUCENTS ARE SHINY!!!

 

:wacko::unsure::ph34r:

 

*increases pledge by $50*

 

Husband is not going to be happy.... :down:

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

EDIT: I never in a million years thought I'd be saying this about a giant tentacled slug monster, but Mashaaf is one sexy sculpt. I don't need it I don't need it I don't need it...but I WAAAAANTS it!! *rages at not having enough money for all the minis*

Dang, there is no probably about it. That looks cool. I will probably heat it up so I can exaggerate the posture more like in that picture.

 

That is a good point about translucents. It would look good painted if the wispy part was left translucent purple with a smokey thin black wash. You have changed my opinion of translucents.

      This one has been on the desk for a long time. I really like the sculpt, but the cast is a pain as I find most of the older human sized Bones models. The Face was atrocious. Luckily he has a big hat. The photos are washed out but give a good idea of how he looks. He is too shiny for my tastes as the newer Testors Dullcote doesn’t seem to work as good as it used to. Unsure how I ended up going from a coal black duster to green, other than I had too much green paint out for the Marines I was trying to get off the shelf of shame. 



       
       
      One down and thousands to go! 😀

      Bad photos, bad Bones cast, and tabletop paint job of Balto Burrowell the Gnome Wizard. Painted this one up as my sons kid character in hero kids. Fuego is a young kid who can cast some fire spells and has survived three adventures and he was on his own in the last one. 
       


       
      I am really beginning to loath these older human sized minis, but this is the closest I had to a human child for his character. Fairly simple base coat, washes, and highlights. I was having a lot of problems with my skin tone paints being too thin (even after several minutes on the vortex mixer). I guess that is the pit fall of no painting for months outside of terrain.

      So here they are. The Ogre Squad. You can see the WIP here.
       


       
      I love how nonchalant and casual this guy looks.

      especially when compared to this guy.


      The oldest of my ogres. Metal and unfinished for years because I was just never happy with him. 

      another angry ogre
      fond of the face(s) on this guy and also the pig. The rope on the barrel was a little frustrating though. It had a mold line right down its length and even though I wasn't doing much line cleaning for these guys that was both a hard one to fix and a hard one to ignore.


      the bones black ogre has the best grumpy ogre face. He painted up nicely with very little clean up to ignore.

      the other metal ogre Kagunk and his amazing shield. This guy sat just primed for a good long while as I just was never sure how to handle the shield face. The older chieften's club face was easier since it was always going to look like wood, but this I had to think about a bit. I think it works pretty well.

      a few attempts at a group shot. Bigger minis are hard to keep all in focus at once.
      There it is then. There are a couple of details I see I still need to do and the metal chieftains need to be sealed. But otherwise that is it for this lot. I did by the other ettin in bones and I might order the other ogre leader and I think I have a bones half ogre around somewhere.  If I paint them I may update this with new squad members. We will see.

      My waste paint receptacle for my ogre squad. Nothing special or exciting but he's done too.
      probably his best side here.

      This side no so much. I don't know think he translated into bones as well as some of the others like the ogres. But then, he's just a mook so who cares. 

       
      Oops! Looks like I hurt his feelings. He'll feel better when he's amongst his metal brethren. He has a much better base than they do.

      A dumpster.  I started painting it as part of Aaron Lovejoy's blending class.  Then had a ton of fun weathering it.
