Well, I'd say the campaign did pretty well, especially considering this campaign was pretty much saying "Give us your Gencon Monies" with it's timing.


Is there an anticpated retail price for Ma'aldrakar?


According to the Pledge Manager, shipping alone on Ma'al to Soviet Canuckistan is going to cost $45USD.  Add the exchange rate, tax, and border handling, and he totals to $160CAD.


If he is going to retail for ~$100-$120 USD, I'm better off to wait.  If he's going to retail for much more than that, well, I don't need him that badly.

$120-150 is our estimates. The more are pre-ordered via KS the cheaper we can get the unit cost and we can make it at retail.


THANKS for that insight! That actually ties in nicely with the Minimum Order issues when dealing with Chinese manufacturing.



Sad that the pumpkin cart never showed up.

Make one from popsicle sticks and micro pumpkins from fall decor that will be in stores soon.



This is a flying finger toward the old model of having a booth space at Gencon.

I am sure the overhead is very much lower than what they would have spent on booth space, lodging for its booth workers and per diem to feed them.

Not sure I want to try and catch up on the thread from phone. Hanging out with reaper folk and the family I brought. Been a good time so far. Win ks2 core set in raffle. Bought my daughter and niece a couple cheap paints and each got a Narthrax. Also seeing the new stuff in person is making the wallet weep more.

      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.

      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!
