I thought they said it will take a minute or two to get the link alive because they don't know the Kickstarter url until it goes live?

I should lock the thread now, and make everyone squirm for the next 5 minutes.  But then a bunch of you will open new threads and I will have to close those down.  

 

But it would be fun to feel the great disturbance in the force, as if millions of voices suddenly cried out...

I'm pretty sure the mod bat is to be used only for good, right?

So I am having trouble reloading the Reaper homepage... this is going to be a fun start 

 

[Nawtamod] Please stop reloading things. Relax. There are automatic scripts in place - stuff updates. Reloading the homepage just puts further strain on the servers.[/Nawtamod]

There's no KS page until someone hits the 'Make live' button.

Yeah, it looks like the home page is suffering a bit at the moment for me too.

I wonder who will get the last word...

We will.  If we have to start locking subform in their entirely to get control of the situation, we will have the last word.

 

 

 

 

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. 

 

Agreed.

 

There's also the ks comments section

Which is best used to discuss the actual project, provide a safe place for questions for new and inexperienced backers, and offer help, tips, and advice for those with legitimate project questions and conversation. It is a woefully inadequate discussion area, and is most useful when it is used for its intended purpose.

 

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?

We have spoken repeatedly with our handler.

      2020 has-been rough on everyone but some people have had it rougher than others.  A friend of mine is disabled and has had a really hard time just trying to keep basic necessities done.  
       
      I thought I would send her a little friend who's got simpler an cuter problems. Purple is her favorite color.  He goes out in the mail on Monday
       
      Hope you like him too...

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
