This lack of a Sandworm is.....its killing me....134k just for the possibility of it appearing next....3.5 days left.....I worry...

You do realize we've averaged over $70,000 for the last 3 days, so 134,000 is just under 2 days?

 

Also that we do some goals based on a time - like we made sure to show Kaladrax & Cthulhu on the last day, and DDS2 and Khanjira on the last day? So we kind of have a plan for this.

 

 

 

You can pick anything you want.. you are not forced to take the core..

Are you absolutely sure?!?

 

That would be great news!!! ^_^

We're absolutely sure. You are never under any obligation to choose any specific item. We do not pre-load a core set into your "cart" nor do we require that you choose one. We have $100 "Core" level because people expect one, otherwise all levels would be "$1 or more, choose what you want"

Wait a minute...

 

Are you saying that you guys have done this before and know what you are doing?!  Get outta here!

 

I have yet to see a few of the things you guys showed us at RCon.  I either missed the Wizard of Oz set or you did not have it out.  The problem is I have all the metals from when I grabbed them at the 2014 RCon. :)

 

See you guys Saturday!  My daughter just keeps going on about how excited she is to go to Reaper again.  She was calling it ReaperCon but I have had to tell her we do not want to kill the nice folks by making them have another ReaperCon so soon and it is just the Reaper shop we have visited before.

Love the Oz figures, but have them in metal already.  Glad to see they are throwing in some smaller/cheaper sets toward the end and not all giant monsters. That sphinx just looks fun to paint. 

 

Waiting to see when the chibis arrive. :)

About the Wizard of Oz miniatures:

 

- I don't play a game where I might be able to use some of them, but the witch, the tin man and the scarecrow will fit fantasy games just as well

- they look fun to paint

- they are part of a large core set - it's almost inevitable that such a core set also contains miniatures one is not too crazy about ... and this core set is almost perfect for my taste (the only miniatures I really don't want because I can neither use them nor do I want to paint them are the Savage World minis), so getting the core is a no-brainer for me (and Kyra and Lavarath, and the Undead Lords, and the Ogre Command, and the Dwarves and ... thankfully, this KS is over in 5 days).

Seriously!!! That tin man could so easily become a warforged for an Eberron game and with the ease of conversions in the Bones line it would be a snap to customize the heck out of that figure for just about any warforged you can imagine! A little green stuff or milliput and you're golden; and with the weapons packs we're getting!!! 

 

I just talked myself into converting this figure into a warforged....

Those are the ones I saw at RCon and cringed because of how much I spent on the metal versions. :)  I have all now but Boris and Elsa because I gave those to Corporea.  Maybe I will drop some of the others into the next Box of Good Will and just make plans to keep the Bones 3 versions (if they make it).

Reaper has a plan... that's just crazy...

 

I do hope, somewhere in that plan, is a hobgobageddon offering....

Excuse me, can you stop pretending that you've done this before? And that you were successful? 

 

Disclaimer; that was sarcasm, a whole lot of it.

 

More disclaimer: I understand we all love to see these minis. We want more unlocks. We want what we want, and not what others want. But in the end, this is a company. I would find it very sad if they caved in to all my wants and ended up going bankrupt because of it.

I'd love if they caved in to all our wants and sold billions worth of minis though.

Cool, looking at the "Gain in last hour" (thank you, David!), looks like pledges are picking up again! :D

 

Hmm...my guess is that we'll unlock the next stretch goal at about 4pm, Reaper time. Based on nothing in particular. ::D:

 

Huzzah!

Depending on the afternoon rate, I figure between 4-6 Reaper Standard Time. I'm hoping closer to 4... I'd like to see it before leaving work. and Bryan wants to go see Ant-Man.

      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.
       
      More Photos Below the Spoiler:
       
      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.
       
      More Photos Below Spoiler:
       
       
      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."
