Hey, was there a goof-up in the Dwarves reveal?  One of the female dwarves (the one raising a hammer high) has the same image as one of those in the Core set.  So if this goal is reached, we're just getting a *second* female-dwarf-with-hammer-held-high?  Or is there some *other* model, and this was just an image-swap goof-up?

 

For comparison: In the Core Set image, look on the right side, right above the monk with the two hand-scythe-like weapons.  (Image not linked because, WHOA, it's big.)  Then compare to the female dwarf in the upper left of the new dwarf add-on preview.

    Oops. I swear we checked that. She was on our must do list and I guess we forgot to cross it off. 

    We will replace that image with the correct dwarf after lunch

Y'know, if they got it into their heads to do an LE Ma'aldrakar in resin, or even in metal, I might actually throw up to $300 at that - and I say 'might', because predicting the budget is like predicting the weather around here - because that sculpt is just ... *mind asplosion noise*. Which is to say, I'd be willing to throw it, assuming I have it at the time (or I'm present - I have to actually plan, deliberate-like, if I want to attend a Reapercon).

 

Annnnd... *SQUEE* Hobgoblins! Awesome!

Ooh. Yet more dwarves, too. Nifty!

 

It was estimated that Kaladrax in metal would have been up in the $900+ range. The GW Smaug seems to vary between $400-$600 in plastic, I reasonably certain that a resin or metal version of Ma'aldrakar is just not feasible.

Regarding the pledge manager, is it possible to add funds incrementally, $100 a month or so after the Kickstarter? There's so much I want to add that I can't afford now, but I don't think I could afford that in any other individual month.

Yes.. they said they will leave it open for additional orders even after you lock in your initial pledge

Since the 48 hour notice is going out today, the averages are about to get seriously skewed. :D

      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!

      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!
