Well, personally I'd recommend considering every email you get has a reasonable chance of being a scam prior to clicking on any links. In this case it would seem it's not though. Adam is saying it was an error by backerkit.

you know for all his imagination there are some parts that lack imagination.  in particular, his use of human anatomy is a little rote by this point, a little bit of alien or insect architecture would have spiced up the mosquito immensely in my opinion. or even if he got rid of the hands and flipped over the fingers to use them as the walking limbs.  Personally i think it changes the figure from striking and creepy to annoying and ludicrous

 

Now I am firmly of the opinion that if I dont like it, I dont buy it, I just think that it would have been nice to see some new blending or new ideas in the new expansions.  Such is life.

I thought the mosquito art looked terrible, far to fetishsized, but then i saw the sculpt and was thinking that's not so bad, I could see leaving that out on display, and not being embarrassed by it.  So I went back and looked at the art.  nope its the same. 

more insect, less anatomy would help.

well I don't need Poots to take more of my money.

Are you all talking about the Oblivion Mosquito?  I've looked at it a couple of times and don't see any human nudity.  Do I need to use my imagination a little more, or am I just naive?

 

But it's Kingdom Death. There is nudity and a couple of penises in all the miniatures!

 

In regards of the mosquito. I think that the concept is rather poor, but the sculpting is out of this world. :) Thomas David is doing a great job for sure. I like everything on the upper-half of the miniature. The lower part more looks like a six-years-old kind came up with conceptual-wise.

It's not particularly vulgar, it's just the use of the hands and fingers would have been better minimized or replaced by a more incectile bod parts.  I think the group restricts itself in the hopes of achieving shock horror over phobia horror.

Surprise update is surprising.

 

Was expecting the Gambler to be a typical slightly-bigger-than-a-normal-dude Nemesis Monster sculpt, not a 150mm tall KD-fied Atlas sculpture.

 

As if the Gamblers Chest wasn't already an absolute steal!

 

Also really glad I added the Pathfinder set.

      Presenting the Gladiator, part of the Echoes Of Death series from Kingdom Death.
       
      Another one rescued from the Cupboard Of Unfinished Things. My Kingdom Death minis always turn out fairly hit or miss, and I think this one falls a bit on the miss side, but I like the job I did on her shield.
      Just wish they'd stop with the dramatic dust clouds, can never figure out how to paint them!
       
      As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.

      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?

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.
