We are so close to that Goremaw The Devourer. I really like that design! I'm seriously thinking about getting it. I've never really bought/painted anything this extreme.  ::D:

 

Yes indeed. I think this is my favorite mini* of the entire KS, and that is saying something given the cool assortment of minis involved!

 

 

 

 

 

 

*I probably shouldn't actually call Goremaw a mini, lest he/she/it track me down and devour me for my insolence!   :ph34r:

Very Cool Sculpt and art work, I am not sure if i will buy though.  I don't think my group has any sea faring adventures planned.

I hope it does spur a lot of activity though, I want to see part 3 of the graveyard and everything else. 

 

I love this Kickstarter so far, even the parts I am not personally buying.

  The problem with adding walls is it is so easy and cheap making a variety walls using the Hirst Arts molds,  So adding walls would actually make it less likely I would pledge for the expansion since I have LOTS of walls.  The fences are great since they will be a lot more sturdy than those made by casting plaster,

 

we've thought about Hirst arts, but I don't like how fragile they are. And how expensive. And the work that goes into making them. And then trying to store these expensive fragile things XD it just doesn't fit in with how we store our gaming items and how we play our games. Something more durable and lighter and cheaper would be useful to us. But i can understand how those who have the means and walls already wouldn't be as excited about Bones walls

 

Hey I'm one of those Hirst Arts crazy GMs :-) I know Hirstarts is not for everyone, but fragility and price realy isn't a problem especially for 3d dungeon setups. 1-2 Molds are enoug for basic layouts and if you compare that to the prices of premade terrain pices....

Concerning the "fragile" plaster, just use a good dental plaster (there are cheaper alternatives then excalibur, merlinsmagic) and coat the tile with a good varnish and you'll be fine. I even base a lot of minis on Hirst Arts tiles or other plaster bases from custom molds. To this day not a single tile has been damaged during a gaming session, including some accidental drops on the floor and very clumsy players :-)

      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!
       
      Also, this one will be a part of the Kings of War Nightstalkers army.
