Pfft...

 

DPD had informed me that my Bones would be deliverd today.

While we would all be away, so I changed the delivery date to Tuesday ( Tomorrow).

I got a confirmation.

 

Guess what?

This morning youngest vixen was a little late and then my Bones arrived.

Lucky she was home to receive it.

 

Plus side - when I get home my Bones are waiting for me.

Down side- It is useless to change your delivery date with DPD even when they confirm this.

Is this straplessness a result of 3D sculpting, or just speedy sculpting...

 

 

I'd go with speedy.  Straps are amazingly easy to forget, especially when you are in a hurry.  When I was pounding out the turtle-folk last December, I nearly forgot 3 straps and it was only on review of the photos I was taking for the WIP that I noticed at all.

Anyone out there with just right hands for their two headed troll (throwing a rock or ham)? 

 

I got only left ones. 

 

2 right hands and 2 left hands for me, contemplating what to do with this guy, keep the hands interchangable or just pick the rock or the pig and glue it solid.

I actually collect these on DVD and won't watch that before I get the final set.

Have a gate mark (maybe) on my snake mini.  Really like it otherwise but was wondering if this was just considered normal for the miniature?

Cobra King has been found. Queueing side-by-side comparison.

It is there on mine also, but it seems less prominent? Snapped cleaner?

i wouldn't be surprised if it was just forgotten.

My female minotaur has no straps holding her plate armor onto her legs either, they' just sit there magnetically i guess. I hand painted in straps for them. So it wouldn't be surprising if the straps were just forgottenIMG_1235.thumb.JPG.4de5a38417ac4ee35612347841785963.JPG

 

Just a note, some greaves (lower leg armor), especially bronze ones, were made without straps and used a spring-like effect in the metal to hold them in place.

On the other hand, the ones on the model do not seem to have enough wrap to be that type. Armoring up and fighting in my personal rig has given me a LOT of insight into how things need to fit and be strapped in order to be functional. Also a lot of insight into the fact that MOST weapons on fantasy (and science fiction, looking at you GW and REAPER) miniatures are ridiculously oversized and would be completely unusable if made of mundane materials. Note that this is not a complaint, just an observation.

Interesting...I guess you put those on more like a boot?

 

Though I don't think the Minotaur's wrap around the leg far enough for that to have been the intent in this case...

      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.

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.

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