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

I still don't know how the Efreeti's head is supposed to get on. That was a terribly designed joint, in my opinion.

I thought it was kind of clever, but then I almost couldn't get her head back off after dryfitting her...

 

I see absolutely no way of attaching the Efreeti's head. Mine has both arms attached - looks to me like her right arm was molded separately and glued on at the factory. And the head and hair look like they can only be attached prior to the arm being attached? Actually, even if the arm were removed, it isn't clear to me that it would be possible to fit the pieces together.

 

@terminalmancer were both arms already solidly attached to her body on yours?

Both arms are attached on mine, and the right one is glued on (unlike most factory glued-ons, this one is actually half-decent). Her front piece and back piece are detached, but dry-fit in beautifully. The head? What the heckins?

Yeah, 99% sure they were. When I get home I'll see if I can demo the assembly in a picture or three--it took some bending of the materials and more force than I was comfortable applying to the new Bonesium models. I was a little concerned I was going to rip the post off when I removed the head afterward.

For temporary assembly, you can try these adhesives. : Museum Wax, rubber cement, white glue.

 

Museum Wax is weak and meant for non-handled objects. Better for display, rather than transport or use.

 

I'll probably go for rubber cement if I actually get around to inventorying... :huh:

 

Vallejo Plastic Putty in the tube is easier to use than epoxy to fill in gaps, but doesn't have holding strength.

Honestly I'm feeling pretty salty about Argent's reduction. I get all the reasons they had to do it, but the size was a major selling point. He was supposed to be stupid massive. 

 

I dunno. I feel like there's been a number of changes on things that were pretty big selling points, throughout this whole campaign, and it's pretty disappointing.

Yeah, I agree here. This wouldn't be nearly so frustrating if they'd been honest and upfront about it before fulfillment. Obviously, the decision to resize him was made months ago. They've had ample opportunity to communicate it to us, and they didn't. That's part of what really bugs me. It's another piece of their rather negative communication issues lately.

 

He may be big, but he's still smaller and less imposing than T'Raukzul. He won't look nearly as good opposite Ma'al Drakar when he's almost half her height. Yes, some of that his that he's not standing up, but he's also a lot less long than she is. I feel like they decided to just make the wings unnecessarily and uncharacteristically thicker than normal, and then somehow that lead to the whole dragon being downsized. I'm not happy with it. Will I live? Yes. Do I think it reflects poorly on Reaper? Yes. Will I be even half as trusting with renders rather than physical, finalized miniatures in the next KS? Yes. It's impacted my trust, that's for sure.

I bought 2 Argents. One for a friend. While I actually like the reduced size as it fits in better with my Council of Wyrms games, I am disappointed that it was not communicated.

 

The only things I actively dislike are the translucent purple minis from darkreach. Will likely avoid things like that in the future.

 

My favorite mini, Is the female duelist from Sophie's Friends and the Fat Mayor from Dreadmere.

I'm not a huge fan of transluscents in general, but they're easy to throw on the tabletop without paint. I can't say I actively dislike them, but they don't fill a need in painting, and I wouldn't have snagged them alone. Exception might be the black pudding slime. That one is pretty fitting.

      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.

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