IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

By The Way, I thought there was a way to make a poll, is that only a new post option? Was going to put one in so everyone can vote on which review of which expansion I do first:)

Requires a moderator to use the poll feature.

 

Use the various "like" options instead.

I just realized something. Does anyone remember that giant cobra and the elephant on the throne as being part of a Conan boardgame? Maybe my mind is turning to mush these days, but I've been thinking I've seen them before for a while now and it just clicked. I could swear they were part of an as yet to be released game that I demoed at Origins a few years ago. I'm assuming that if they are the same sculpts that the Conan game never released? 

 

I seem to remember mention that Reaper was the one's who made the models for the kickstarter, and when it failed to succeed, reaper retained the rights to the sculpts, and that's why snake, elephant king(?), tree of despair and the amazon/spartan statues showed up in the kickstarter.

Also, some of the terrain for the Conan Kickstarter was repurposed from Reaper sculpts.  I remember Kaladrax's base was one.

I have received shipping information!!!

Also, I think the reason so many are flying by is because people who ordered the out of stock items, probably ordered a bunch of items. So its artificially inflated by small orders going out first.

That would explain it. Thanks! Shame that game didn't succeed. It was fun and the designers seemed like a decent bunch. Glad that the figures are getting a new lease on life though.

Thanks, Gadgetman - that's exactly where my two bottles come from ;) But they don't always seem to have them.

 

Well, another reason to test the Reaper Beta site, then...  

(And also pick up the monthly free giveaway)

You double check to see any missing or damaged/miscast stuff from the cor or other items?

Can we have a picture of all the demons  and devils with sir forscale?

Now that I have been working through the Core box, I realized that you meant these minis. Let me know if you want to see one specifically as they dont stay together well just dryfitting.

Did they ever announce the actual contents for the Modern Scenics add-ons?  Reason I ask is that I only have two of each barrel and the graphic shows three of each.  They're cast two to a sprue, so they'd have to clip one off of each sprue to get it up to three each.  Sprue attachment is on the sides of the barrel as well, which will take more work to ensure they're smooth, than it would if they'd done it on the bottom of the barrels.  :down:

 

I've finished the gross check of items.  Need to look at the core and Dreadmere to make sure I've got all the figures in those.  At some point I'll have to start checking to be sure I have all the parts for each figure.  ::o:

      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.
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/tftb/world-war-ii-soviet-railroad?ref=discovery_recommendations
       
      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.
      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
