It's been a while sense we last heard anything, hopefully it's all going alright and on time.  Maybe he's still pondering on what color the centrigual spincaster he should buy :D

 

There'll be a small update today... but there isn't a lot we can do yet, because Kickstarter won't send us the money until the end of next week. So, yeah, everything's still on time; we're just in the 'hurry up and wait' bit of the project right now.

 

No chance of a new spincaster though - the project didn't raise anywhere near enough for that. Thankfully, the mouldmaker is happy to do whatever casting we need doing, so we'll just be using him from now on, unless we win the lottery. Not doing the metal casting ourselves gives us more time for sculpting anyway!  ^_^

Maybe you can start a savings account for one then? Have a certain amount from each project goaled to set aside for a new machine.

 

Besides, soon with the Burrows and Badgers line, Oathsworn will be the Next Big Thing in minis, and you'll need to hire minions to help you keep up with all the new orders you'll be getting. So your minions will be spinning metal away while you make dwarves and badgers. (Really, there's not much difference, one just has the fur all over :lol: )

We've been slowly saving up for one over the last year, but I'm not so great with savings... it seems every time I put some money in, the washing machine breaks down, or the car's engine seizes, or the shed roof blows off. (It's been a fun year!)

 

Boo wish you had gotten enough for a spin caster.

It would have been nice, but in some ways, we'd rather not get one now. Jo's practicing hard at sculpting, and if she gets good enough to do minis, then we'd rather have her spending time sculpting than casting.

 

Missed out on this. Too many other obligations at the time. Hopefully next time.

Thanks! And there will be a next time... I'm well along with the next three sculpts already.

I love the new Heraldry! Thanks for not making me try to free hand those shields :D

 

 

It was because you'd mentioned having to do free hand on them, and I felt guilty!  ^_^

Just for clarification purposes... did the wind take the roof or was it an explosion? :huh: Because I can totally imagine you guys "blowing" your shed roof off :lol:

 

That's also something I would do, if given the opportunity, a shed, and a house in a rural neighborhood :ph34r:

      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
