Monthly pledge add ons is a terrifying concept.  

 

What are you people doing?!?!

Spreading the pain out so that it can instead be a bunch of little bursts of pleasure.  Try it, you'll like it.  It's not addicting at all.  Really. /crossed fingers

 

He's right.

I'm not really feeling that Flesh Golem, which is too bad.  He looked a lot more dynamic in the concept art and was one of my favorite pieces from Stoneskull.

*looks at concept art*

 

*looks at mini of golem*

 

I dunno, they look pretty much the same. I bet he looks much better when painted. I like to see painted version (especially of metal minis) because they're much easier to see all the details and whatnots. Not that I'm gonna paint them up as good as Derek Schubert :lol:

And what is with this bit of bullstuffery?

 

 

LOCK IN YOUR ORIGINAL PLEDGES NOW

Don't forget, if you have not finalized your Original pledge, you need to do so as soon as possible. How can you tell if your pledge is finalized? You'll see "COMPLETED ORDERS" in the upper right corner of the manager screen, in the Green bar. If you do not see that phrase, you have not told us which rewards you want for your original pledge.

 

When we are to have at minimum six months to finalize our pledges, with mention of only having to lock in shortly before the boats are on the water or some such

 

 

 

After that, there will be 6-8 months during which ALL BACKERS MUST use the pledge manager at least once to give us their shipping address, and to tell us which rewards they want. At that time, you may also add additional funds for more rewards.

:huh:

 

Locking in pledges now helps Reaper to know more precisely what they need to have produced now in order to be ready for shipping later.

 

The more people lock in pledges early, the more accurate Reaper's orders from the manufacturers can be.

 

Clearly you *can* wait to lock your pledge. It's just more helpful for Reaper if you take care of it early.

Head was upsized a significant amount, which changes the whole feel of the model. In context of the image the golem was in made it look like it was meant to be large, the metal one looks like it might be medium, in so much that a Reaper miniature is ever medium anymore thanks to heroicscalecreep. Definitely looks like some details were left off and / or changed. The extended cylinder no longer has a positive terminal. Some of the plates look like they are missing.

If they said it like that, that would be one thing. Big bold letters shouting lock in now!, as if people missed some sort of deadline is another thing completely.

And the pose is quite different - in the concept art, his weight is settled back on the rear leg quite a bit, and he's crouched slightly. His shoulders also seem to be rotated slightly from the hips - it's a very realistic fighting pose. The actual sculpted mini has a very boring straight-upright stance that makes the arm positions look less like someone in the middle of a fight and more like... someone randomly flexing, maybe? Hard to tell what he's doing. Even aside from whether it matches the concept art, the stiff-legged, straight up and down body posture just doesn't work with the arm pose. It's dull and lifeless, and unnatural in the wrong ways. Combined with all the other subtle changes, it went from really fantastic concept art to a very "meh" figure. ::(:  Overall I'm still happy with Stoneskull, but this particular model just doesn't achieve what it should.

Gotta admit I'm not really sold on the golem. I liked the concept art but the actual figure, ehh it's ok but it's one I wouldn't buy in a blister if I saw in person.

 

Just curious is he gonna have a knee plate? I think that was one of my favorite parts about it.

 

I will say that pic is better then what I seen on my phone, as it felt like it was missing allot of detail (it was the angle & light of the pic). I was thinkin if it looks this bad in metal, what will it look like in Bones??"

 

I still like enough of the expansion, just not so sure I'll get it thou.

      Hi, we're Crow Land Publishing, and here's our first book, Wickerpunk. A supplement book for Dungeons and Dragons 5th Edition, with application for all fantasy and horror games, such as Pathfinder, Call Of Cthulhu and even superhero games, like Champions. It will be 275 pages.
      Folk horror – horror and supernatural fiction that relies on elements of the past, folklore, superstition, the dreadful majesty of nature, the darkest urges of old religion. And old gods. Where the landscape itself is a symbol of fear and dark majesty. 

Heroic fantasy – a dream of blades and magic, a dream of defiance of the dark powers of the world, where we can be our truest ideals of our self. 

And when these genres collide – we have Wickerpunk.  A genre in which the ancient and natural world of the Wyld meets the imperialist world of Industry.
      If you like film such as Gawain and the Green Knight, Dragonslayer and The VVitch, you'll like our book.
      If you like games such as Maiden of Sker, Greedfall, and Hellblade, you’ll like our book. 

If you like anime such as Princess Mononoke, The Ancient Magus’ Bride and Faery Gone, you’ll like our book.
      If you like TV shows such as The Witcher, Game of Thrones, (especially the White Walkers stuff!) and the classic 1980s Robin of Sherwood, you’ll like our book. 
      If you like novels such as The Mists of Avalon, The Dark Is Rising and The Broken Sword, you’ll like our book. 
      Wickerpunk is a sourcebook that instructs GMs and players alike on what wickerpunk looks like in a game of D&D or any fantasy roleplaying game.

      We have a small and short campaign live at Kickstarter.
      As the clunky title suggests, It's about a big virus, his small buddy and some masked adventurers.
       
      The all in level is 50 USD (60 Canadian) + postage
       
      Thanks for having a look!

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.

      Story
      After the estate of one Fomo Barrowblight (who many moons ago, and with heavily laden bags, had said he was just off for a morning walk, never to return) was sold at auction, there came to light a strange scroll that appeared to be a map of the final resting place of a lost tribe of halflings.  These cousins lived down in the scorching Southlands, amidst endless dunes that had buried whole cities and civilisations.
      The newly elected (and so still very enthusiastic) Halfling Town Council had organised an expedition to make contact with their fellow halflings, with the aim of swapping some stories and recipes, and who knows, perhaps even coming back with some interesting new cakes.
      And, after many great perils and travails, the expedition found itself in a mysterious location known as 'The Valley of the Things'.  Here, recipes in strange hieroglyphs were marked on tomb walls,  guarded jealously by High Priests and long mummified pastry chefs.  
      The expedition takes time to assuage the fears of the High Priests that they are here to steal the sacred recipes and make formal diplomatic relations.  But Fomo Barrowblight and another mysterious figure seem intent on stealing the recipe to the sacred pie and have already gleaned some of the ingredients...
      To the Mummy's Tomb!
      Introducing a series of  Eight Fantasy Miniatures in 28mm scale from a halfling expedition to the burial grounds of their cousins, in the desert southlands. 
        Halfling Town Council Five
      The latest elected Halfling Town Council, has been responsible for launching the expedition to the distant Southlands, as always, it is made up of eight different townsfolk from all walks of life.
       
       
       
      I've already pledged for the whole set, why haven't you?
