I think we're starting to cause Kickstarter issues.  I got a couple of failed refreshes before the site loaded fully.

In that case I'm going to ask that everyone please stop refreshing incessantly. Trust me, we aren't going to be hitting the button with 15 minutes still to go.

 

Let's try NOT to cause a zillion problems for others by, through our exuberance, disrupting the internet.

 

Honestly, I'd much rather crash their servers now than while people are actually trying to pledge.

 

 

If you crash their servers now, the KS might not go live on time. 

 

Better not to crash the servers at all.

Someone set up a chat thread for us to blow up it seems.

 

Fair point,,qwyk. Though if that's why they gave you the bat, how'd froggy get his?

 

http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62777-bones-kickstarter-3-random-discussion-thread/

 

 

 

Here you go. I put it in the same forum so people would be able to see it easily.

 

 

 

Why was this deleted? Can you guys create a separate post so we can have somewhere to chat like this one? but in the same forum so people know where it is? Call it the unofficial thread for chatter?

 

 

I think that's just called the General Randomness thread.

I would be sad if we crashed ks

 

Awww...

Places, everyone!

You in the back, quit bouncing!

We're not bouncing, we're vibrating, there's a difference!
  

I'm bouncing... :-D

 

 

So is the kickstarter site going to go live at precisely 10 am or before then? I know it starts at 10 but will it go up a little sooner so we can at least browse it? :)

 

well, we're talking about going out to breakfast and dealing with it later...

 

as soon as it goes up, it will be live.

there is no preview period.

 

aaaand hundreds of people fail to get the sarcasm and freak out.  ;-)

Many lucks wished for a smooth launch Reaper peeps.

 

9 minutes....8 minutes....

One was already created in Off Topic Rampancy.  I can't guarantee that one will survive either.

 

This forum is for Kickstarter specific discussions only, chatter belongs elsewhere.

 

Everything else will be purged.

With fire?

 

From orbit? 

 

Like the heretical alien scum that we are?

 

Wait...

 

AHHHHH!!!!

If you're still around Bryan, Did you warn Kickstarter about your project? Do they have a way to be warned that a big project is coming up, or do these things blind-side them?

I think he might be a tad busy at the moment...

      A few weeks ago I made a bit of a cheeky post where "Lassie" tried to get some help for poor Timmy (who had, quite unsurprisingly, fallen down a well).  Well, the Thing in the Well wasn't quite finished at the time.  That has since been rectified.
       
      I present to you: The Thing in the Well/The Well of Doom!
       
        
       
       
       
      The well was painted up with my favorite craft paint combo: Delta Ceramcoat Chocolate Cherry, Burnt Sienna, and Terra Cotta.  Truly great stuff!  And it's not grey!  I honestly think I'm going to use that trio for most of my stone scenery.
       
      I left the fluid unattached and painted the inside of the well with a couple shades of dark blue (I no longer remember which ones).  But I'm not sure whether or not I'll ever take the brain out of the well, so it was just a whim and not anything really planned.
       
      The first part of the beastie I tackled was the well "water."  I knew I wasn't going to paint it up like blue water.  I was hoping to create a rather unnatural vibe.  I thought about green, but ended up using the NMM Gold triad.  I don't know if I got the shading right, as I was trying to make the fluid darker where it would be thicker/deeper and paler near the edges and peaks.
       
      The brain was next.  I used the Vampiric Skin triad for the grey matter.  The veins/arteries along the surface were originally going to be red...and then I remembered that squid blood isn't red.  Squid blood is blue.  So out went the red (not for the only time this project).  I used Nightmare Black to serve as a base for Ritterlich Blue and Brilliant Blue topped off the highlights.  You can't see the "cerebellum," but I used Imperial Purple, Amethyst Purple, and Spectral White to paint it up.  I was on a "cool" colors kick.  
       
      And then the tentacles.  Ugh.  Not "ick," "ugh."  My original, scatter-brained plan was to try to emulate the humboldt squid.  Those rather nasty pieces of work pulse red when they're agitated.  So I painted the backs of all the tentacles red.  Then I put the fluid in the well and started dry-fitting the tentacles.  It didn't work.  None of it.  Not the shade of red and not the fit of the tentacles.  I ended up pinning four of the tentacles to the fluid base.  There just didn't seem to be enough "plug" on them to properly sit in the base and I didn't want to drown the thing in glue.  One of those pins is rather questionable, though, but it's all holding for now.  The mold lines are another issue.  I should have checked more carefully before I started, but these aren't for much beyond my own grins and giggles.  I can forgive a few mold lines.
       
      After getting the tentacles nice and attached, I pondered for a bit and ended up choosing the Twilight Colors triad (another favorite) for the backs.  I chose the Rosy Flesh triad for the underside of the tentacles, and the Bone Colors Triad for the hooks on the suckers.  And that's about it.
       
      Thanks for stopping by!

      Sod all to do with gaming, but I know we've got cat people with their own voids at home; and some of you might be into pins and need a Void of Blep of your own.
      Or.. heck, I'unno. Maybe you need void stickers or something.

      Good day everyone, here's 77444, Goblin warrior with spear sculpted by Bobby Jackson. Since these goblins are sold with duplicates, I will convert the others by swapping their weapons. I will also paint the goblin command, shaman and leader.
