Ha! I am wrong, they would bonesify one of the newer ones. The stretch goal makes me really happy! I'd love for some more NPCs from the line, but I am seriously getting two sets of those!

The longer this goes on, the more dedicated I am to the concept of double-core.

 

I'll prolly still need additional Armory type pledges (and maybe Orcs and Goblins), but double-core seems like the economical choice when it comes to the number of sets I want duplicates of...

 

Just need to figure out what to do with 32 Lizardfolk! Hence my desire for pirates... lizardfolk make great primitive natives in a Caribbean-type setting, a substitute for the cannibal pygmy types of old adventure reels...

 

Freeport has "degenerate snake men", that are actually just elongated lizard folk.  And it has all the pirates you could possibly want.

Someone else I think mentioned it upthread, but my guess is a Dire Bat.

 

They love insects, but also eat fruit, and drink blood.  They have both leathery wings and fur.  It's a large animal.  I am pretty sure I remember hearing about one back in the earlier KSers.

That would be my guess too. Flying, multiple textures, affinity for insects (yum).... and Julie is well known for her lovely leathery dragon  bat wings.

I'm betting the mystery sculpt is a wyvern.  It's a classic fantasy beast that fits most, if not all of the hints.  Its affinity with insects would be its stinger.

 

My guess is wishful thinking.  I need so many wyverns for Hoard of the Dragon Queen, and they're so expensive in metal!

I would love a wyvern new sculpt from Julie Guthrie.

I would love a wyvern new sculpt from Julie Guthrie.

I would love a sculpture of an old boot from Julie Guthrie.

 

If Julie Guthrie resculpted the Monopoly pieces I would cherish them forever.

 

That she sculpts awesome things is just more goodness on top of her overall skills and talent.

 

She could sculpt just about anything and I think I would like it.

 

How do you feel about G.I. Joe figures? I think Julie and Bob sculpted a bunch of those for the toy industry at one point.

 

They have done a lot of sculpting work. (Which is part of what makes them so awesome.  ^_^ )

 

Are you sure they haven't sculpted Monopoly pieces? (Sadly, the toy industry does not commonly advertise the sculptors they hire for these things. :down: )

      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!

      From Bones 3: Gug

      "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening vertically instead of horizontally."

      From Bones 3, the Werearmadillo

      Obviously, lycanthropy has spread too far...and this is a reminder that Reaper are from Texas, where armadillos are native and as I understand it, seen as pests. I would really like to know how the sales figures for this model compares to other lycanthropes.
