There's no way I'm going to be able to resist this. :( And I spent twice the amount on Bones 2 than what I had told myself would be a strict limit.

I'm already swimming in minis. What's a guy to do?

Build a deep end?

 

That's what FireElemental and I are going to be working on...

 

Maybe if we're really dedicated, we can move a Bones pledge worth of room out of miniature storage and paint them before Bones3 delivers... but I don't think it's gonna happen.

And do a Scrooge McDuck!

 

I wonder if wet can hype this enough to dethrone exploding kittens

Later as in days, weeks, a couple months? And what does this do to your plans for the LE KS?

Depends.  We're thinking that June 8 isn't realistic anymore, is all. Things changed from announcement to now, and we thought you should know.

 

This is not expected to affect our plans to launch a kickstarter for Legendary Encounters in the Fall noticeably.

Ok, June 9th it is!

 

I'm not happy, but I like Reaper, so you can have your extra day.

 

 

:devil:

 

Seems fair and reasonable to me.

I really hope they either redo the gauth sculpt like they did with kaladrax or at least just put the normal scupt into bones I have the metal version but like him so much I wouldnt mind a second

Gauth has eluded my clutches for far too long.

If we help Reaper on social media sites and advertise this, possibly. But we don't have a starting date anymore. On the other hand...5 headed dragon!

I'm hoping for a redo. Original Gauth had too much bipedal influence in posture and body structure, IMHO. Maybe it could work for a mini for Borys of Ebe or some other human turned dragon, but i generally prefer more quadrupedal looking than Gauth. Which is why I've been VERY happy with most of Reaper's Bones Dragons.

      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.
