The dwarves took some consideration, but I went ahead and bumped my pledge for them.  They are such a far cry from the typical dwarves that it would be a real shame not to get:  the robed dwarf on a pony, smug faced cleric and adorable pugs.   The king is just crying out for a diorama.

 

The jester is absurd, but since my last campaign featured a magic basket that turned the PCs into kittens - I may find a use for him. 

The kitten basket was named the best magic item ever by my players and featured prominently in 3+ sessions.

Anyone knows who sculpted one of this miniatures?

Formorian Giant (Core 30)

Giant Centipede (Bonus 24)

Giant Tick (Bonus 24)

Frost Giants

Any of the Heroes

Any of the Lycanthropes

Mystic Circle

 

or from the Stoneskull Expansion,

Behir

Brain in a Jar

Dire Bear

Succubus

Were-Armadillo

Minotaur

any of the Kobolds.

 

thanks

 

Heroes 1: the knight looks like Bobby Jackson's work, the babe with the blades is Bob Ridolfi, and I'm guessing the other 2 females are Patrick Keith, but might possibly be Bobby Jackson. 

 

I'm guessing Bob Ridolfi also did the were-bat and Jason Weibe did the gator/croc. No idea on the bear. 

 

The succubus looks like Bob and/or Julie's work. 

 

The kobolds look like computer generated images, meaning they haven't actually been sculpted yet. 

 

Kevin Williams did the mystic circle. 

 

Thank you. 

 

New SG added.

I thought the computer renders are digital sculpts that will get 3D printed. Is that not the case? Is someone going to actually sit down and sculpt those out of greenstuff?

 

Edit: actually, I just read that Bobby Jackson has switched over almost entirely to doing digital sculpts in Zbrush that get 3D printed. So yeah, the kobolds are done, and I think the update said kobolds and goblins are Bobby Jackson's.

Story:

 

 

I wrote out the opening to the Story for the maps. 

This story Ends at precisely the moment the first KS map begins.

 

It's awful, being that I am not a great writer, but I had fun and I hope you do too.

 

 

THE SEARCH FOR MR. BONES

It had been a long night. As the sun began to rise to the east, across the Forlorn Mountains at the edge of the world, Mrs. Bones locked the front door to the manor and hung her golden sword over the mantle. Mr. Bones propped his scythe against the wall and kicked off his boots. The graveyard was silent now, and the ferry service was closed for the day. After sunset the spirits would need to be quieted again and Mrs. Bones would go on patrol, and Mr. Bones would go to work for Mr. Charon but for now, they could rest in each other’s arms.

 

Mr. Bones pulled the curtain closed just as the first rays of the morning sun hit the opposite wall, and he crawled into bed beside his beloved Ulna. Dim, warm light from the gaps in the drapes filled the room as they drifted off to sleep, cold beneath their scarlet covers. The lights in their eyes dimmed, and the only sounds to be heard were the occasional rattle of their gentle breathing. Hours passed.

 

A dark shadow passed over the bed, blotting out all light. A great din erupted as the great window shattered, the glass ripping the heavy scarlet damask curtains into tatters. Shards of glass and crimson cloth filled the air and the shadow covered the bed in darkness that was palpable, not just blocking the light but absorbing it. Ulna jumped up, searching the chaos to find her husband, but she could see nothing in the blackness, feeling only the glass against her cheekbones and something soft drifting through the air.

 

The shadow receded and as light returned Ulna tried to make sense of the scene. Glass was everywhere, mixed with bright red streaks, and tufts of fluff floated through the air. The sun bathed the room in intense hot light, overwhelming her. The bed was ripped asunder. Giant rends streaked through the black-swan-down filled mattress, black streaks through rivers of crimson.

 

What she could not see was her dear Vomer. Her eyes flared red as she reached into her bed stand to grab a strength potion. Taking a quick second to grab her cloak to protect her from the hateful sun and a small pack, she ran down the hall to follow the trail of the thing that stole her husband. She knew she’d need her weapons, so she couldn’t leap foolishly out the window after them. She ran down the hall, emerging into a disused chamber with empty bookshelves and discarded bones - they’d always wanted to make a child, but their careers kept them both pretty busy.

 

An armored warrior burst through the doorway, brandishing a laughably small knife. For over two centuries Ulna had patrolled the cemetery at World’s Edge, this human warrior was no match. Ulna stopped, adjusted her cloak, and waved the soldier on. He paused briefly, not expecting his target to be so calm, but seeing she was unarmed, he grew emboldened. He lunged towards her, thrusting his dagger towards her grinning face. She extended her left leg, sweeping his ankle out from under him. As he hit the ground, she dropped, planting her knee across the back of his neck. She reached out and twisted the knife from his hand, flipped it across her palm, and thrust it into his back.

 

He did not scream or twitch. His head twisted around, and as he spoke his lips and eyes turned black. “You’ll never defeat us all. You will fall before us, and your power will be ours. Vomer Bones is already lost. You have already lost.†The words dissolved into unintelligible burbles and bubbles as the soldier dissolved into a gooey pool of black. That was no human, but whatever it was was the same dark shadow-stuff that had invaded their room and stolen her husband.

 

Standing, Mrs. Bones held the new dagger before her, straightened her shirt, and blew her bangs out of her eyes. The soldier could not have been more wrong. She would not lose...

 

Too many images in this post. Maps 1-10 are now only available in older posts.

Pathfinder troll is a natural for bones. Now waiting for giant eagles.

 

 

With or without wizard rider?

Short answer: Yes

 

Long answer: I know I ordered at least one of the core mi is from this KS in metal because their pose is ideal for balancing on an eagle's back. I'm fine with no rider.

I love how update 27 refers to the dwarf jester not as just a dwarf jester, but a "Berserk Jester Lord".  :devil:

Yes, the computer renders will get 3D printed and reproduced, although in at least one case (the Merrow), the render is not yet complete.

I was just looking at the giant eagle, and the support of this mini is so small... I think they will need another sculpture of it to be able to stand in bonesium.

 

 

 

Also, I will be dropping my Wave 1 pledge, because shipping date isn´t a greater significant in me getting a package (Brazilian customs and post office are), so if anyone want a Wave 1 spot, sand me a private message and we can arrange a time to do this.

I hope when the Pledge Manager is back up and running, Reaper sends out an update to let everyone know.  I realize that it is possible for people to up their pledges without the Pledge Manager, but maybe some people are waiting for the Pledge Manager to make it easier.

      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."

      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.

      I have a series of vignette's I'm planning that all feature ogres in amusing scenes with townsfolk. The first of this series is here.
      With this one I imagined the young milk maid is taking her boyfriend home to meet the parents for the first time. The boyfriend, wanting to put on a good first impression has worn his best striped collar and matching belt, as well as brought his best skulls.
      He's a bit nervous so she's trying to reassure him. "Don't worry... Mom is going to love you."
      She doesn't say anything about dad, though...
      Any critique and criticism is always welcome.
