I think I learned about Baba Yaga from watching Lost Girl. The sidekick is scared of Baba Yaga because of stories her Russian granny told her. Then of course the team meets Baba Yaga and things go badly, then well, and they win.

I got one extra set, pretty much planning on using parts of them for basing and such, or maybe to create some of the variety of skeletons they kind of demonstrated one could do in the video demo.

Im wondering if I can magnetize all the pieces so I can swap heads for different undead creatures.  I only ordered 2 sets and I wish I got 4 maybe even 5 for parts.

I'd heard about Baba Yaga ages ago but I didn't really learn anything about Russian folklore until a GM I was playing for asked all of his players to create characters based on Russian fairy tales. Turned out to be harder than I expected. I mean, everyone's basically named Ivan... The way that Russian folk tales in particular use the same characters (Ivan, Vasilisa, Baba Yaga, Koschei) in different stories like they were actors was really interesting.

You have a very different definition of "Grave error in judgement" than any of us when it comes to bones.

I need a house-stretcher! Or to clean my craft room... yeah, a house stretcher seems more likely.

Sounds like it's time to get a storage unit. And then move one of your existing rooms worth of furniture into it so you can put your bones in that room.

Baba Yaga is also in the new Hellboy movie, though early suggestions would say that's not a good thing.


There's a classic D&D module that uses Baba Yaga, "The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga".  The spell, "Tasha's Hideous Laughter", was created by and named after one of her many daughters.




She also has an entire adventure path themed after in in Pathfinder, "Reign of Winter".  It is a great bizarro module full of Eastern European myths ans monsters.

Reaper put out a previous metal version in that line...I prefer the new Bones version.

      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.
      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.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
