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

I opted out of last years sophie for the same reason. That and it was metal and most llikely a pain to put together. Had she been bones I probably would have kept her.

 

 

+1 from me. As a rookie to mini painting/assembling, metal is/was scary.

 

Heck, I still haven't put together any of the multi-part bones minis from KS 1, but given a background in models assembly, I think I may have better luck with those than with metal.

Most of the large bones I have the pegs are just so much better and easier than any metal I have ever seen. They almost go together without any glue/greenstuff. That is how well some of them fit together. (Kaladrax being the one exception from what I saw in person)

Thanks OneBoot,

 

Shame Reaper has no sense of humor, the worm joke was the funniest damn thing to happen all day and I was reaping karma off of my reply! :blush:

 

Funny to some, but not all and rules are rules. What's so wrong with wanting to keep this board family friendly?

I'm not sure who wouldn't find it funny, and I didn't say anything about it not being family-friendly It was a clean joke, and it set itself up perfectly. I broke no rule. By the Mod's admission we're all older than 12, and I've heard far worse spew from the mouths of kids younger than 12.

That new demon slayer sophie is pretty darn cool looking. Fingers crossed that the mini lives up to the artwork.

 

Reaper Sculptors fight over who gets to go through Talin's concept artwork first. I'm sure Bobby will do a killer job on Sophie, no worries.

<Mod>karma equaled locked thread?

It wasn't funny to enough of us. Bryan's comment about age refers to the trying to get around my locking.

Keep it family friendly. If in doubt, don't post.

Reaper Miniatures about 1 hour ago

@Niranth - I *could* if we had closer to full participation. Right now only 9,000 of 13,000 have used it. Of those, less than a third are ROW

 

Ohhh, that's interesting. Ignoring the fact that only 3/4 of the pledgers have used the calculator it's still interesting that ROW seems to be such a large part. Admittedly, "less than a third" can mean anything from 0.1% up to 33%, but compare that with the 25% ROW pledgers from Bones I AND the shipping kerfluffle.

Troll Slaying Sophie to the rescue! I can totally use her in games without a second thought.

 

It's not a true Reaper project unless there is a Sophie!

 

And this time 'round, we like her. We really really like her! :wub:

? what's an ignore list and how do you know you're on it?

 

If you click your name at the top of the page, you'll see the option to "Manage Ignore Prefs". If there is someone who regularly makes you lose your goat nature, you can choose not to see their posts (and other things). I'm not sure it's possible to know whether you're on someone's ignore list.

 

 

If you traderd her in last time you don't get one this time. You upset her.

Fortunately I kept my Sophie, bought the UL Sophie and bought the Sophie Box Set (even though I already had all of them).

 

 

Yeah, me too. (So I don't need to buy that Bourbon St. Sophie from you after all.) ^_^

      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.

      after doing the bugbears I figured why not try something a little bigger, how about some ogre's, unfortunately most of the ogre's were sold out in the reaper store and ended up getting this piece which at the time didn't know I already had.
