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

So I'm later than I had hoped to be.  I have content for this week, but let's pick the second January update (fourth Friday 1/25/19) Content. Five options.  Use the Like this post options to cast

@Oneboot - I swear I saw one specifically about breaking up the core set and the goblins. But then again... I have been known to be wrong. :lol:


I think this may be the quote you were thinking of....


Any chance of making the previous Bones Core Sets available as add-ons?


@Paint Monk - That is not planned, and would seriously undermine our retailers and hurt future sales. Our lifeblood is your store, and we cannot afford that kind of action


I posted most of the other quotes regarding breaking up the core set and/or goblins. The rest are below:


@Brandon - We often provide a way to get parts of the Core Sets later in the project, although we may be structuring those sub-parts differently this time.



@Back5 - Later in the campaign we will break the Core Set into smaller sub-sets, and backers can choose to get the full Core, or one or more smaller subsets. It is always a better value, price per model, to get the full core, however



--OneBoot :D

Who was looking for a thing to tip them over the edge and make them buy the core set?  Will a griffon do it? :lol:

Yah that would be me:huh: Well I am definitely getting the core set now I guess:mellow: Probably after the KS is over, but definitely going to get it now, just too much cool stuff.

Did not expect to see the griffon in the core set. Very cool!

Neither did I, and buying it separate when/if core set is broke out near end is probably not a good value (however I may buy an extra set just becuase grr)

Julie Guthrie griffon in the core set confirmed!!!1!1!!  :lol::wub:::D:


Sigh, I really am going to end up getting the core set, aren't I?  There's no avoiding it.

YUP! No avoiding it now.

And I was one of those as well. Current spreadsheet says I'm still waiting for retail, but I am only 4 small figures, 3 medium figures, or 1 big figure away from getting the core. I was lowballing Gauth by about $10, so I've bumped him up the official value. I'm sitting at 14 figures in the core that I'd buy singularly, including the massive dragon.

When I first saw the core set I was 'slightly' disappointed, I'm not a fan of bipedal dragons and thought I didn't need any more goblins. I thought Reaper had released a weak-mediocre core this time around...however, the more I looked at the existing models (painted in metal), even Gauth, the more excited I got. I got my (very recently arrived) Bones 3 goblins out and cut them from their sprues and realised they're actually super sweet models (but I don't need any more goblins*). Then we've just got one gut punching reveal after another (even the kobolds are ok, I just personally don't really need any more kobolds*). The armoured gobs, villagers, devils, OCD-compliant guards with halberd in opposite hands, ratabomination...oh dear. And we're only 3 days in to a 30 day campaign! I'm beginning to think I'm not going to escape with less than $450...


Fortunately, I'm really not interested in the Chronoscope expansion, or the cutie dice and dragons...but oh, the trolls, the wraiths, the effing dragon turtle! Oh dear, oh dear...


*who am I kidding?

Hey, I haven't even told you about their intense fear of all plant life and how their new M.O. is "If its a plant, BURN IT!"


Speaking of which, plant creatures would be awesome! Shambling Mounds and Tendriculouses (or generic versions of same if those are copyrighted).

Haha! You attack players with plants too? Mine saw giant lily pads and decided they would support their weight. Chomp!

 Now if there would just be a dwarf I might start considering it more.

We always need more dwarf miniatures. How about some with beards and crossbows for a change

And big noses and axes and Saxon helmets.  Boy, are we lacking for those.

While we're dreaming, how about asking for some with an ale tankard or a pick-axe

      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.
      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
