Update #43  Nov 25 2015   November Monthly Update! Greens!   It turns out that monthly updates may have to be the way we do it this time around!    I've been hard at work on the greens and the

Goodbye, Halflings of Stonehaven.  You'll see paint again when I get back from the beach.  

"In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit. Not a nasty, dirty, wet hole, filled with the ends of worms and an oozy smell, nor yet a dry, bare, sandy hole with nothing in it to sit down on or to ea

Any word on shipping for add-on raptors?

 

Umm, not understanding this question, Marvin.

 

The prices above are if you do INDIVIDUAL add-ons at the $13 level. Price of shipping is already built in I'm sure if you do the other levels above that.

 

Though I think if you ordered a LOT of add-ons to a higher level pledge they'd ask for money due to the increased cost of postage.

Barbarian is cool!  But, those glasses should probably be slits (like these https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inuit_snow_goggles) and not glass.

 

Nah, I don't agree with that. Goggles work better for their theme as DUST runners. They'd not want dust/dirt in their eyes as they are racing across the desert landscape. Think more along the lines of Mad Max.

 

I agree that glass googles would be better, I'm just saying they don't seem very barbaric.

 

Can't you just paint them as though they had slits?

 

What, you want me to freehand a straight line?? FINE!!! Sheesh. Way to make me push my skillz.

Or:

 

Paint them black.

 

Paint the top half light brown almost to the middle.

 

Do the same to the bottom half.

 

Leave a line of black as a slit.

 

The larger area of light brown should be easier to control than a thin line would be, so painting the line in the negative just makes sense.

I may well be alone in this feeling but every time they put a group together that intrigues me and could get my money they add something that is totally useless and pointless to me. As an example I really like the Citizens of Ramsglen except for those two little bird farmers, why couldn't they have been halfling farmers? Sometimes they just get to cute. Another one is the Buttonwood Band, I don't need a little halfling napoleon or a frog herald, I want halflings! I might be in for the Inn staff.

Yeah, I'm looking at the Raptors myself, a few of those actually.

 

So I may just keep my $50+ pledge and add a few of them to the pick 10.

 

 

pick 10 excludes mounts. poop

 

 

You misunderstood me  ::P:

 

I'm talking as "add-ons" which will take my $35 pick ten up to $50+ if I add 3+ of them to my pledge.

Yep. Sorry.  I totally misunderstood you.
  

My bad tho, I wasn't very clear as I read it back.  <_<

Sounds like you need to do the pick your own 5 or 10 or more too. That's how I feel about some of the things too, I don't like the grippilis (I know that's heresy for a lot of people), but doing the pick 10 (even if a bit more per figure) is what I'm liking so that I get exactly what I want/need out of this.

That's add-ons available beginning at the $13 level; all pledges are subject to add-on shipping, if applicable, I thought.

 

Well, shoot them a PM and get an answer straight from the stonehaven's mouth. 

 

I'm giving you information based on what has happened in the past with their KS, which is always subject to change.

Doing a little figuring with a ruler after noticing the numbers in the comments section; 16mm at the eyes is going to make them pretty tiny. Giving me a bit of pause, being a stuffty painter with bad eyes, and all.

 

 

I maybe rather a fan of scale creep at the smaller sizes.

Do you have a visor or way of magnifying things you work on?

 

I always use a visor at home blows it up 2.5x magnification and it's wonderful, so even those tiny details aren't nearly as hard.

I feel the same way as you.

 

But I want so many of the minis that I plan to go Completionist Level and then cut up some Frogs and Halflings who got out of line for parts.  :devil:

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
