Baby behir maybe?

 

I know the name but not very familiar with behirs. When were they introduced?

Before my time, TBH. I didn't start playing until AD&D 2nd edition, and they were already in the Monster Manual at that point. As per Wikipedia,  "The behir first appeared in the first edition adventure module, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth (1982), and was reprinted in the Monster Manual II (1983)." I was only 2 when they came out. But I used them randomly as a monster in 2nd Ed, and it stuck with me. The behir used as a random encounter in my Pathfinder Kingmaker campaign wound up becoming the mayor of a city. I just have some weird, inexplicable affection for them.

So I had to come on here and make a comment.
Grey Bones, the stiffer ones.  I LOVE THEM.

Been working on the Scarecrow from wild west Oz. The stiffer material was nice to work with. It feels stiff like a hard plastic, but still has some give. I wish there were more mini's like that. I'm won over with those.

Loved the look of that adventure but not the adventure itself. I actually didn't do much with dragons or dragon-like creatures back then. Not sure if I need a full-sized behir now but I try to find a place in an adventure for my minis. I have all the dragons except Ma'al and Stormwind coming (On the UPS truck today!) as I will need them for an upcoming adventure against giants (also stocked up on giants and yeti).

 

I wonder what size behir are in MM2?

Finally got through checking all my miniatures off on my list, and trying out some fits. Nothing missing or incorrectly provided, as far as I can tell. All in all, very pleased with everything I've gotten, with one exception - the Behir. I love Behirs for reasons I can't explain, and I've got the Huge Behir mini from DDM's first Huge set, which I've used for ages. I was really happy that a Behir was in the Stoneskull expansion, and the render looked gorgeous. The problem with it is one of scale. Behirs are supposed to be huge beasts, able to constrict regular humans and generally imposing, Now that I've got it in my hands... well...

It's so much smaller. Not marginally so, but significantly smaller. While the original Behir is, honestly, a little too large to fit the base, but this is just so tiny in comparison. I'm not sure what to do at this point. One down-side, but otherwise, the minis in my possession are excellent and I can't wait to get to painting them...

 

I basically bought stoneskull for the behir alone and I'm also disappointed with the looks of it to be honest. Looks like I'm going to have to shell out for the prepaint. It's weird cause usually reaper bones are better at scaling big creatures. I also don't like that it's mashed so much into the broccoli base.

 

On the bright side the froghemoth looks way better than I thought it would. You win some you lose some.

I've gotten your order details from LadyStorm and I'm investigating.

 

As with the message above, I've got million things on my desk (and LS has over 1600 emails about this KS She's processing) but I promise she and i are looking into every report -- although in some cases we're waiting for the update to go out because there's a ton of good data in it

 

Thanks. I sent you a PM before seeing this, so it can be safely ignored. I appreciate the response, I really do.

I got *2* Stoneskulls so my wife and I could each have a Behir. I love the sculpt even though it's a lot smaller than we expected. We already have the DDM one, so a different size is fine by us.

I am pretty sure I have that module in my pile of really OLD stuff that I just can not part with at this time.  Trying to remember if I ever ran it back in the day with my group of high school friends that played.

 

As for the size of the behir on our Bones 3...it looks pretty menacing next to Sir Forscale and could probably constrict him with ease.

My thoughts exactly. And given my current space issues in okay with it being a bit on the smaller side.

I've got no room. Something is going to have to go. It's not going to be my miniatures. Maybe get a smaller fridge.

 

My order is out for delivery.  It is keeping from getting anything done so I've wheeled myself out to the garage with the laptop to putter and wait.

      Information is growing on Cmon page and BGG.  This rings all the right bells and is likely to mug me quite severely.
       
      From the Facebook announcement:
       
      "The ritual has started, and there’s no stopping it now. The only hope for the Investigators…and the rest of the world for that matter, is to disrupt it just enough so that when the Elder One arrives, it will be vulnerable for a split second. Just long enough to kill it!
      They’ll get their chance when Cthulhu: Death May Die comes to Kickstarter on July 10 at 3 PM EST. The new game from CMON and Guillotine Games combines the creative talents of Eric M. Lang and Rob Daviau. Stay tuned as we reveal more about the Investigators risking their lives and the unspeakable horrors they will face off against."
       
      Or as Mr. Lang says in interviews, the game where you "shoot Cthulhu in the face."

      Overview Earthworm Jim has been a beloved character in video games since his launch in 1994, but due to the limitations of cartridge space, his epic story was never properly told. I'm not only the creator of Earthworm Jim, but I've spent the last 20 years making 18 graphic novels! EARTHWORM JIM is about the world's most unlikely hero... a worm! The evil Queen of Insectica has a super-suit invented that is capable of altering the universe when it is stolen by her ugly sister, Princess What's-Her-Name... Earthworm Jim... from the creator of Earthworm Jim!
      My name is Doug TenNapel and I created Earthworm Jim 26 years ago. Though "EWJ" appeared in award winning video games, an animated series and a toy line, his epic story has yet to be told! We all know the character, but none of us know the story. This deficit in the universe ends NOW!
      (P.S. Do sign up for the Earthworm Jim Comic mailing list! http://earthwormjimcomic.com/ )

      For the first time in 27 years I am crafting an epic graphic novel worthy of the true fans of Earthworm Jim in a multi-book set! Let's launch the cow!
                        

      My last Indiegogo campaign was for a comic book called Bigfoot Bill and my backers blew me away by providing $196k in funding! Together, we were able to make a hard bound, giant book with over-the-top gold-leafing and embossing on the cover. With your help, we can make Earthworm Jim: LAUNCH THE COW a beautiful volume that is a work of art unto itself. It goes on the coffee table, not some box of wrinkled, floppy comics in the basement. This story will be a sprawling love letter to the fans of Earthworm Jim!


      YOU are my Plan A. There is no other plan!
      Making a big, beautiful book requires a lot of funding. Paper costs go up every year, and I only use top quality end sheets, cover stock and print work. It's made in America in my state so I can oversee every step of production. 

      The book will start as a handsome hardbound edition, oversized at 9" x 12" and 160 pages long! It documents the origins of the super suit and how it got to earth to make our favorite hero. You'll see some familiar characters ripped straight out of the video game like: Peter Puppy, Princess What's-Her-Name, Psycrow, the hideous Professor Monkey for a Head, Queen Slug-for-a-Butt and Evil the Cat!

      The Making Of EARTHWORM JIM Book!
      Your Earthworm Jim: Launch the Cow comic is lonely and needs a companion...

      The "Making Of The Earthworm Jim Book" is a perfect companion to the comic bookk. It will also be hardbound, 9" x 12" and starts at 64 pages (But I KNOW we can do a lot better than that!). It has a comprehensive backstory on all of the main characters and villains. I think it's tacky to have too much expository dialogue on everyone's past, so it's better to unfurl that in this book. I give you the why behind the entire Earthworm Jim universe... and yes, I'm building a universe!

      I recently had a reunion with the whole Earthworm Jim game team and I got to interview everyone. We talked about how Earthworm Jim came to be and I will document that many close calls and freak accidents that had to fall into place for it to happen. There will be team bios, and a catch up on what everyone has been doing over the last 25 years since we got together.

      The Shiny Team section of the book has portraits of the talented artists, programmers and musician and the photos were even taken by David Perry the Earthworm Jim programmer!

      I'll show every step of the comic book's production, from raw ideas on the white board to printing every notecard I used in breaking down the story. You'll see the raw pencilled pages, inked pages with washes applied and I even scan my script pages that are covered in pencil re-writes!

      Who remembers this cartridge and packaging art by Mike Koelsch...?



      I've asked Mike Koelsch to paint a new "90s-style EWJ cover" for the Making Of book! Koelsch will give a step-by-step story on how he illustrated EWJ including a sneak peek into his studio madness. (Check out Koelsch's website here: http://www.sporkunltd.com/) He has also allowed me to make prints of the cover and the original is available on our highest backer tier. I'll put it in a beautiful frame with matting so it's ready to hang in your home!
      Here's Mike giving step by step progress on the cover:



      I've got perks where you can own the original comic pages, the book covers and enjoy frame-worthy prints plus a perk where I will draw you an original signed Earthworm Jim head-sketch in your book!




      3 ART PRINTS!
      I hope to make three collectable prints with each Earthworm Jim book by guest artists, and these are the first three. Note: They will only be offered on this campaign and won't be offered on any future campaigns. The first is by Mike Koelsch, the artist who did all of the cartridge and packaging illustrations for Earthworm Jim 1 and 2. The next two are from the CreatureBox boys Greg and Dave!

      FUND THE TEAM:
      The funds will go to a costly print run, my letterer Eric Weathers, flatter Radka Kavalcova, my colorist Katherine Garner, book designer Joe Potter and shipping fees. Here's a sampling of the team's test pages so far:



      The Art of Bookmaking
      I've spent years making graphic novels and Earthworm Jim is probably my most well-known creation, yet his story hasn't been told. This is my chance to do the best job I can to entertain you and your backing will make this book a fantastic work of art.



      I don't see comics as disposable rags made to read once then toss aside. I spend a lot of time writing and story and crafting every page and merely reading some thin floppy or a PDF isn't the experience I'm going for. This book will be something you can enjoy for a lifetime, it's literature, not pop-garbage and I want to stand on the tip-toes of my ability to reach for the highest possible craft I can accomplish! 

      My track record in this arena has few peers. I Kickstarted two sketchbook archives where we managed leather covers, gold gilded edges and the best printing money can buy. These are one-of-a-kind collector's items that are not available in stores. The book honors the backers who made them happen. I write for the most diverse audience imaginable, and the backers constantly tell me, "I got more than I paid for!" 

      If you look at my books that are made outside of Indiegogo, you'll see that they don't have the over-the-top printing production I can pull off through crowd funding. Only through Indiegogo will you find foil-stamped gold cover art, UV gloss coatings, embossing and de-bossing! I hope to explore new printing techniques that make these hard bound books the kind of items you show off to your friends with a durability that ensures a great re-read for the rest of your life!


      For more on the Bigfoot Bill campaign click here: https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/doug-tennapel-s-bigfoot-bill-graphic-novel/x/838702#/
      I spend a lot of time putting these books together, it's time away from my family and I've dedicated my art philosophy and have the highest commitment to being transparent to my backers, include them in every step of the process and take the moral contract between backer & creator seriously.

      Why Beale Air Force Base?
      When Crew Chief Matt Konar was allowed to choose any artist to paint the nose art on his KC135 refueling plane he wanted something like his favorite character Earthworm Jim! A friend put us in contact, and I designed the artwork for the plane and attended the commissioning ceremony on May 5th. The whole base came out and I felt so humbled to get to help America's finest that I wanted to do something special for those folks and give YOU that same feeling. 



      By backing the Beale Air Force tier, I hope to send one copy of the Earthworm Jim comic to all 800 people on that base just in time for Christmas! As a thank you, I will send you a signed book!

      Here's a sample page from the comic:

      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      About
      Hello everyone,
      A warm welcome to our latest Kickstarter called Cyber Belles!
      These fairies have survived the eons and have adapted to modern times. We've placed them in an apocalyptic setting where mankind has all but destroyed the world and... itself! The fairies have evolved and have adjusted to the needs necessary to survive in this dangerous place! 
      The campaign will help us fund the production of three 75mm miniatures and maybe something else... which is small... and cute... ;) 
      The campaign is about three 75mm scale miniatures. Red Belle, Blue Belle and Yellow Belle.
      The artwork
      Red Belle Blue Belle Yellow Belle Note: the sculpts are a little bit different from the artwork shown. We mostly chose to do this to make them a little bit more realistic and also to make sure that the casting were strong enough in the end.
      The artwork
      Red Belle 
       Blue Belle 
       Yellow Belle  
       (see more angles at the bottom!)
