I was going to piggy back on a pledger's PM, but since you are opening it up to non-backers, I'm trying to make a decision:

1) Ewah

2) Ogopogo or Uktena

3) Basket Woman

 

May have to limit myself to under $50. Stupid adult responsibilities.

I ended up changing my mind about what I was going to get a few times, but finally settled on the Thunderbird, Ogopogo, PNW Whalers, and PNW Headman. I figured that was a good mix of my favorite of the big creatures and a little squad of the guys from my area of the country, which was what first got me interested in your company in the first place.

I figured the Flying Heads would be about Medium-sized (the size of a human). *shrug*

 

The Piasa bird is GORGEOUS, but I can't justify getting one of them too on top of everything else. I shall reserve him for a future purchase. :wub: Same with Sasquatch, Uktena, Mallku and the Crystal Skull engine (all of which I'd intended at various points to get with my original pledge amount).

 

I had also planned on the Ewah, since I loved the concept art so much, but both the sculpted models came out a lot skinnier than I was expecting, particularly in the legs. I liked that she had some heft to her in the concept art, exuding strength and confidence without looking bulky. The head on the feline version also seems disproportionately small to me.

 

The Deer Woman is such a lovely, graceful sculpt, and I'd considered her a few times, but unfortunately, I couldn't get my brain to ignore the fact that it looks like her hair is holding her breasts up.

 

The Ai Apaec was another figure I considered many times, since the sculptor did a FANTASTIC job on such a wonderfully dynamic piece, but unfortunately, they did TOO good a job! It looks so very spider-like that the thought of him sitting on my desk would be way too creepy for me to handle! :) It does look super amazing, though!

 

My final tally is:

Great Thunderbird

2 Ogopogo (yes, two!!!)
Inca shaman doctor
Fleeing child kit
Monster hunter

 

The Ogopogo is a good example of why it's a good idea to wait until the final sculpts are shown. I wasn't much interested in it from the concept art, but as soon as I saw the actual sculpt, I knew I had to have it. And I HAD to get a second copy to gift to a friend of mine, whom I know will do it great justice in painting it! :wub:

 

Huzzah!

Oh man, I just discovered this, and I already feel like I've been burning money on gaming stuff lately.

 

The models are great and I'm happy to see more variety beyond the D&D standards. Growing up in the PNW I want all those guys and a Sasquatch for sure. I was fascinated by those bird masks when I was a kid.

 

That's only the start of the list but I'm really going to have to find out whether there's any more change in the couch now or if I'll have to wait for the general release (I hope they will be available after KS fulfillment...)

I've added several more models to my original list. I didn't realize the Flying Heads were so large, so they're on it now. Furthermore, I'm really loving the actual model for Ogopogo, so he's in the pickings now, too! :)

Too many good things.  Went a little beyond my original spend.  The Ewah and the flying heads are there as is the Uktena, which is probably what brought me into this KS in the first place. Also my son insisted on an Ogopogo and spend a rather long period chanting at me (it makes a very easy chant).  These are among others.

 

Anyway.  I sent my order in today.  Hope everyone is looking forward to these!

I was looking at the catalog to finalize my order (I left off a bunch above because I forgot), and I have a question - the catalog has different pledge information than Kickstarter.

The catalog says that the $150 pledge, in addition to providing the $10 extra credit also provides the Ai Apaec model. The Ai Apaec isn't part of the $150 pledge on KS.

I'm just curious if you can clarify this - also- if I do get the extra mini, do I mention this on the order (and how), or just leave it off?

Thanks

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
