When does Reaper Live start, will there be an episode this week with all the other stuff Reaper is working on now?

should be 6PM reaper time (for me on the west coast 4PM). Just checked twitch, the counter says an hour 40 minutes, so there should be one

If someone could ask for an update on the international shipping containers and timeline it would be very much appreciated. I'm going to bed, long day and too much swimming.

Spoiler because ALL THE PICTURES! There were so many minis that were multipart or big (or both) that I ended up just taking pictures of everything lol.

Assembled. Note: if you plan to have minis riding on the mammoth, you'll have to build or place something on its back to create a flat-ish surface. I could barely get the rat to balance up there, and Forscale kept falling off.

Howdah you do that? (Yes, I have been saving that pun.)

 

I am actually glad that the Efreet isn't assembled - it is taking a fair bit of work to get the Bones Black version to look good. I would have been happier if it came as a kit.

701 Anhurian cavalry:
20190417_235941.thumb.jpg.1b67e3387363ed4052aa8d28ba43bb6a.jpg

Assembled. There was a mold line right next to the peg for his spear arm that changed the shape of it, so I'll have to do some trimming to get the arm in. 
20190418_000618.thumb.jpg.b1cc166d416ade9b9a84f1b3be88f5ab.jpg

702 Overlord cavalry (I forgot to take an unassembled pic, but can do so on request). Gonna need boiling for sure, both the horse and rider's legs didn't want to sit where they were supposed to. 
20190418_001218.thumb.jpg.4e08ac4e6af437f467fd3e220767b4c1.jpg

For both of these,  BE GENTLE when pushing the horse's hooves into the holes, the ankles are thin and I bent two of them (they didn't break, thank goodness). This new material will take some getting used to. 

703 Mystic Portal! :bday: I've been super excited about this for a long time now and the end result did not disappoint. @TaleSpinner did a fantastic job, especially with the swirly bit in the middle! 
20190418_001515.thumb.jpg.d70f3f77cf651a42039585847581c6ab.jpg

Side view to show off swirly stuff OF Doom! 
20190418_002124.thumb.jpg.9b02158f4657fc95d5a3b90ae20aa454.jpg

There's actually little spherical notches on either side of the portal for the lion's paw to fit into. They're invisible if you don't want to use the lions, but it's a nice touch and adds additional stability. It amused me that the heiroglyphs are included in the notch lol. 
20190418_002204.thumb.jpg.c8528cb7871be5d3975247064715eba0.jpg

Note: the material used is MUCH harder than the plastic used for previous translucent minis. Again, will take some getting used to, but should be nice to paint. 

704 Chaos Toad Sorcerer, 705 Chaos Toad Brawler, 706 Chaos Toad Savage. More lovely sculpts from @TaleSpinner, it was super fun watching these come to life in his WIP thread, and now I have some of my own! :wub:
20190418_003302.thumb.jpg.4b9cde74f0771d36986141b75d8ec75a.jpg

705 Chaos Toad Brawler unassembled. The things that look like horns actually go on the backs of his hands, it took me awhile to figure that out:
20190418_002641.thumb.jpg.8dbda1a4a2894c8269fcae1023e053ff.jpg

706 Chaos Toad Savage unassembled:

Sir Forscale decides that when your furniture starts trying to eat you, perhaps it's time to consider a new line of work:

20190418_010100.thumb.jpg.1b708fc84b9ea457e98780382b65b2a0.jpg

Assembled. He turned out quite a bit larger than I'd expected! 
20190418_010313.thumb.jpg.771d6374ff076d2d927f29dc238a414a.jpg

725 Crabman:
20190418_010706.thumb.jpg.19b7f51996b9f24018da4e7fa1f81d90.jpg

Assembled. The weird little squarish piece is his lower jaw:
20190418_011121.thumb.jpg.5d80f9a2cad5ce89574352c2f850d084.jpg

726 Mammoth. The ears on mine arrived stuck in their slots but not glued, so they fell off when I took him out of the bag. Keep an eye out for that:
20190418_011804.thumb.jpg.c6ff91e5bf7df069040981a64ab25fa3.jpg

727 Zombie shark (do do dododo do do). I'm holding it at an angle so the profile is more visible:

733 Maggotcrown Ogre Juggernaut:
20190418_012351.thumb.jpg.89095dba5613ee24ad8c928dfa6cd0e8.jpg

Assembled. Also bigger than I'd expected:

734 Thrasher Snail:
20190418_012713.thumb.jpg.6e19bab971d2ced9a44b3c48ff08b1e3.jpg

Assembled. There's tiny sprues connecting the, uh...head ball thingies together, which I won't trim off until I'm ready to paint it:
20190418_012907.thumb.jpg.45df6a86ba811682f832d77600bb461b.jpg

735 Female Efreeti:
20190418_013118.thumb.jpg.fdbdf490406868c02707f6c2ea29056f.jpg

Assembled. Here is a case where I wish it had come assembled, at least partly. The head piece is a right PAIN to get on, and it's a good thing the new plastic is still a bit flexible or I'd have broken the neck peg. I put a drop of glue in more for the principle of the matter; once it's on, it doesn't easily come back off again:

738 Female Djinni (something, I assume the lamp, is missing from mine. There's a little slot for it on the right side of the base:
20190418_014352.thumb.jpg.dc59fa988cc401e23ad655fd54ae212b.jpg

Assembled. 
20190418_014659.thumb.jpg.e99e9c309d872a28637a6af1b7afce9d.jpg

Back view. Her sword isn't actually attached to anything sculpt-wise, it's just kind of...floating there. Which, yeah she's a Djinni and can do what she likes, but still it looks a bit odd if you're actively looking for it. 
20190418_014732.thumb.jpg.2bc3bb9c95e6ab5b592b55cd93f8618a.jpg

Here's what it looks like without the sword; the slot looks pretty easy to fill if you'd rather use her without her sword (which is really a very pretty weapon):
20190418_014749.thumb.jpg.0748b67f11f0af3a0f7e12e56579a04f.jpg

739 Isobael the Bard and Dog. Last but certainly not least! Isobael even looks a bit like Izzy, which is a nice touch, and the dog definitely looks like A Good Boy:
20190418_015000.thumb.jpg.86a60ae54702fc111bf0142e3dce498d.jpg

 

 

Right-o, it's onto the Core set, after I take a bit of a rest. ^_^

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D

 

To be brutally honest, while I'd like to take credit for the cool swirly part in the center of the portal, the one I did wasn't nearly so dynamic, being more of a simple whirlpool.  Ron approached me after the KS and asked me about removing it and I did.  They were then going to cast it in resin and scan it so they could have one of the zBrush people (something I hope to be soon) add a more dynamic swirl that you could actually put a mini through.  I agreed with this plan.  They did all this, but something went wrong with the scan and the model itself was damaged and the zBrush sculptor (I wish I could remember his name, but I only heard it once) was forced to essentially copy my masters in zBrush for a lot of the sculpt (though I suspect not all, as those symbols on the balls got into the notches originally because I sculpted the balls first, let them harden, then sculpted the notches around the balls, so if he redid that part he really was was copying everything I did). 

 

So in the end, the portal was still my concept and sculpt, and yet the finished product is not my sculpt, at least not directly.  I'm conflicted on that.  For instance, I don't feel like I could paint that up as a ReaperCon Open piece because the forms there are not directly my tool strokes, unlike the Chaos Toads which were my sculpting directly.  On the other hand, the portal was my design and concept, unlike the Chaos toads which were the product of a design session between Izzy and I.

For Argent's size, i'd like to see a production copy up against the one they had in the studio when we did the factory tour at RCon last year.    

I remember seeing Argent on that tour, and being left with the impression he was massive, but I to was a little bit underwhelmed upon receiving mine.  So I'm wondering - is there a real difference, or did my memory make him bigger?

For me Im not too worried about the difference.  As long as he is comparable to Taukzul (or whatever)  

 

Surpisingly comparable, actually!

That makes my heart hurt that your original sculpt was wrecked!! :down: I remember your original, it was a lovely piece and while being able to fling minis through is fun, I had such a fun, swirly multi-colored design in mind for your version that won't quite work on the final version. I can definitely understand your feeling conflicted. :(

 

Partway through the Core set. Our table is covered in tiny plastic people and dragon parts. It's a good thing I have a very understanding husband lol!
