Oh, come on.  Hand puppets?  Hand puppets?!?!  How the heck am I supposed to say no to that?

THIS!!!!! 

 

 

Oh, come on.  Hand puppets?  Hand puppets?!?!  How the heck am I supposed to say no to that?

AND PUGS!  And that amazing self-satisfied look on the forge-priestess's face!  AND THE PONY!  IT'S SO GOOD!

 

YES!!!

 

Gotta admit, I'm not really diggin' the dwarves. Even my son, who loves dwarves more than anything, was a little underwhelmed by the set. We both really like the proud, smirky looking female, Gandwarf on the pony and the huntsman, but the rest are kind of meh. Maybe they just need a coat of paint. The king looks very nice (love the owl on his helm) but the throne area seems under designed. Something like that should be display worthy.

 

Luckily, the Pathfinder II pack is excellent, although I'm still hoping we get a Sinspawn. Those attack in groups so multiples are important. Bones makes groups happen. 

I think you're in the minority of not loving the dwarves. I love them for the fact that they are so unique. I've got plenty of hammer-wielding, heavily armored, stern faced, traditional dwarves from which to pick and choose but this set is so unique that I'm totally stricken.

The new dwarf set is not really my cup of tea either, but I am very happy to see the positive reception they are getting. I like that we are getting new and unusual miniatures to play with. They don't all have to match my taste. ::D:

Loving the dwarf set, though I do find the throne bigger that what I need, but the rest make up for it nicely.

 

Going back to Stoneskull Expansion, the thug mercenaries are growing on me. Their bald heads will be perfect to add some guild tattoos on them. Hey, the iron man golem sketch got replaced by the 3D render.

 

Also love the Ogre Command. The one thing I'm not too crazy about is the expression on the goblins. They all have the same face.

I have zero interest in the dwarves, but it is a bones KS, some people will love some stuff and not other stuff, some people will love everything.

And bless their hearts (and wallets)!!

 

 

I think someone's got a voodoo doll of my wallet.  Every time I look at it, it's got another stab in it.  Oddly, it coincides with the Stretch Goals.

I'm not terribly excited about the Dwarves, they're cool and all, but not my cup of tea...I am however very excited for the Pathfinder figures coming at that level.  Red Mantis Assassins and the Pathfinder Troll?  Heck yeah!  I think I'll be doubling up on that.

      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!

      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."

      Ahoy, my dream enemy! Have at you!
