Like very much this new addition in the core set. My D&D players will be happy. I have almost finished painting the latest Reaper Bones Learn to Paint Kit. What a great way for me to get back in the Hobby more than twenty years later. Thanks Reaper for this kickstarter just in time and bowing to you for reviving a flame in me. I'm all pump-up and just order some paints from Reaper and new Bones to continue. I would recommend the Learn to Paint Kit to anyone starting or coming back to the Hobby. I'm looking forward to exchange and get advice for a really cool community using this Forum and who knows maybe Reaper Con to meet at some point in the future. Feeling really Zen and ready to spend more on this kickstarter.

  This is pretty much my reaction to the first Kickstarter in a nutshell.  Welcome back!

Ooh, racially diverse townsfolk.

 

The dwarves and halfling are a bit light on detail, mostly due to the aprons, however they do have large friendly looking faces (even the pig seems unusually happy). But that half-orc merchant is my must have in that group. And I love a strong woman (elven or otherwise).

Blacksmith is pretty cool. Wish there was an alternate version without the anvil...

This, 100,000 times over.  Even if it doesn't come without the anvil, please make it so the anvil can be easily removed without compromising the rest of the figure.  She is strong and beautiful and would make a great character even without the anvil.

The townsfolk are cool!  But I really want something I can increase my bid with also!  I know we'll get there.  The KS has some really great new stuff all around so far.

 

I doubled up on townspeople (well, 1 set in core, 1 set extra)  ^_^  ::D:

The pig is happy because he/she was not just carved up like the other pig was.  This one's name is Wilbur and he was saved by a druids piratical joke.

Same with me. Getting all the old figs out of storage.

      Here is all that I finished in March - one undead archer - the bowman from Bones 3 undying heros. Paining a giant took the rest of my time... In any case, he was kind of a quick diversion, just so I could get the satisfaction of a finished mini - always can use more undead archers!

      Goblins!
      So awhile back I was horrified to discover that some old un-finished minis had sprouted a strange orange mold. I gave them a deep clean and seemed to have solved the issue (spoiler: I did not and it's affecting nearly all my minis... but that's a problem for another time).

      As a reward for enduring the cleaning, these goblins deserved to finally get painted.

       
      Goblin Command (77349)
      First up are these two baddies from one of the Bones 2 expansion sets.

       These guys, being earlier bones, are a bit on the rough side, and definitely out-of-scale with the others. But that does help them stand out a bit.

      Goblin Warriors (77444)
      Next up, we have our "heavy hitters" from Bones 3.

       
      I like these sculpts a lot better. There's a uniformity in the face structure, while still having individuality between models.

      Goblin Skirmishers (77445)
      The final batch of wimpier goblins from Bones 3.

      These guys are the mookiest of mooks. Poorly armed, and poorly armored. These are the guys that get sent in first to soak up some arrows.

      It's nice to finally have some painted goblins. Though my bag full of 50+ more unpainted goblins still taunts me.  I have plans to paint them in a few different shades from the yellow-green used here, to a fleshy yellow-tan, to a pale fleshy-grey.  Hopefully that'll break up the duplicates and add some variety.  But that's a future project.
       
      After painting all these guys up I am tempted to finish the set with the Goblin Honor Guard.  They're the only ones I don't have. I can't see myself getting much use out of them, as they're a bit more situational or decorative than practical. But my completionist brain says I need them.

      Reaper has so many incredible and different goblin sculpts.  Which ones are your favorites?

      And a third NPC - his day job is boatswain, so I wanted the armor to not be full plate.... he's currently helping the party do a fetch quest for the captain. I'm pretty satisfied with what I got out for what I put in - but I do notice I seem to have forgotten his eyebrows!
