Favorite Mini: Dragon Turtle. That's going to be a fun one to paint, play games with, and just have on display.

Least Favorite: Probably the three crystals in Dark Reach. Not bad, just that they're... small crystals. Perhaps that should be a challenge to paint them in a way to make them more interesting? Add runic symbols?

 

Anyways, hope this is helpful to some people. Overall very happy with the purchase.

 

Welcome to the forums!

 

Y'know, I think your least favorites are pretty well placed. For a similar cost as to what these will be in retail, I can get amethyst chips. Actual amethyst. Except these wouldn't be. They *might* be able to sortof represent scapolite. 

 

I agree that the dragon turtle is a masterpiece. He's brilliantly sculpted, he's interesting, and he'll be fun to paint.

I think my bones are at my house! I'm at work! 

I called the GBO, and he says, "oh, I just left the house. There was a package at the door, so I just stuck it inside. It didn't have Amazon tape, it was weird." 

Hahaha! 

Also,  :blink:. Can't wait to check it out!

Got my bones today.  First walk through showed my two headed troll had two right hand for the rock and I am missing the lower jaw of one of the spicky frogs in dreadmere.  They also missed my Dance of Death.  Was the toothy mouth monster (415 Dreadmere) suppose to have a base?

My husband and I didn't get the sci for expanaion., And going back through the let's explore updates I couldn't find that one. Was there one and I'm just missing it?

And if not did anyone get it and mind posting some photos? I want to drool over what we missed.

A lot of the monsters with 4+ legs don't have bases. I'm not at home to check, but I don't think that one did. 

 

For almost all of the monsters that have bases you can see the attachment points on their feet. If they don't have them, it's a good bet they don't come with a base.

My two headed troll had three right hands (2 for the rock and 1 for battering ham), sadly NO left hands. Have to wait till all bones are fulfilled:( Hope I get the replacement soon, I SO wanted to make my battering ham troll:) Both my frogs had (as far as I remember) their lower jaws. One with a closed mouth and one with tongue out. I'll look again ( Dreadmere will be my second in depth expansion review, hopefully end of next week:) They said on reaper live #28, that #415 had no base because the STL files were sent instead of the master sculpt and the STL file had no base:( Just use one of the ones from the core set we got for free:) I actually do not have that mini anymore, so it will not be shown on the review:(

updates #91 (box art) and #98 are the only ones I found. I will be doing an in depth review of every expansion soon and Chronoscope was the #1 vote, so hopefully by mid-week now that life has calmed down. I will try and break out the box and take a few group shots:)

The Triceratops (Thunderfoot?) also did not come with a base, even though the kickstarter page showed one. Unlike the T-Rex, the triceratops ended up not needed a base because it stood on it's own, so they did away with the base:(

      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.

      "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
