We expect to see the evening average faster than the morning, and things to gradually slow down as people spend their weekend gaming, with family, or whatever people do. 


Painting, obviously. You think I have time for family with all these unpainted minis? They're my family now...*creepy laugh*

exactly! win-win!

mostly, we have a ton of regular monsters like goblins and kobolds, and a lot of PC adventurers, we realy want to flesh out the towns. So much of games happen in towns, with NPCs and nice town folk and then the low tier thugs, bandits, and thieves. Town guard, militia, etc. the simple thug guys could stand in for those too


Now that I've gone full circle and started to get a lot of hero sized minis in metal, I appreciate the full Reaper catalogue here. They have a Townsfolk IV: Bandits set that's really nice. Also I had already gotten some of the guys from the last Kickstarter in metal (the bandit-y club holding leather wearing guys) without realizing I was about to get them in Bones too. But I'm always happy to see more bandits, townsfolk, and NPCs (LOVED the set of townsfolk from the last KS) because Reaper tends to release all their hero sized bones in metal eventually anyways, so win-win for me.


Also really excited to see that wyvern. That's an itch that needed scratching for years.

Reaper is making the core set harder and harder to resist...  


I believe that is their master plan....besides brainwashing us all into buying all their models and going to ReaperCon.

Reaper is smartz!



@Aryanun has some awesome rhymes in the comments to spur things on.


And it keeps getting longer. Currently its:


 A wishlist plea for you to find
Transparent wing bits of all kinds
Feather, leather, insect, fairy
Twisted, normal, bright, and scary
Leafy, petal, web, and torn
Bone, armored, clockwork, thorn
Coral, fin, shale, and shell
So we can mod Bones to our will.

Lovely Fae from ancient lore
Combined with legends by the score
At a glance they are light and bright
But a second look brings dread and fright
Teeth and fangs in unlikely places
Extra eyes and extra faces
Tentacles instead of fingers
Run now in fear, do not linger.

Angelic beings up on high
Dressed in splendor, armored to fight
From ancient texts to varied myth
Many celestial creatures exist
From wheels of eyes bound in flames
To ocular-sown six-winged noble beings
Flying, human-faced bovines
Planetars, devas, guardinals... all divines

Towers, walls, and gazebos
Skull-faced cliffs and parts of cathedrals
Ruined temples with pillars broken
Places with dark evils lurking
Labyrinthine garden hedges
Would make us want to up our pledges
Terrain pieces as in previous Bones
Would increase value as add-ons

A rockin' bardic mini Izzy
With sprue of instruments aplenty
Spell effects of transparent Bones
Would be a cool add-on to Core
The goblins are in need of a king
Buglips would be just the thing
Wait, that might be a bit too much
The stank alone would make us lose our lunch

Squidhats... weresheep if you please
ReaperBryan is such a tease
And some flumphs, flailsnails and goats
To help us guard a massive moat
ReaperRon is up to tricks
But we'd like a greater monster mix
Dragons! Dragons! Give us more!
We'll go and empty the Reaper store!

Killer apes!

Every time I see the boss ape, that scene from the new PoTA pops in my head:

Every time I see apes I think about getting three of each:


One to paint black/dark brown


One to paint gold-orange


One to paint white (a.k.a. white apes and / or yeti)

I have enough Yeti's from KS III for that:) But multiple apes is always good.

These damn, dirty apes will have a spot on my table in many games indeed.


Get your bones off me you damn dirty apes:)

At this point the core set is going to be too good of deal to pass up

Yes, I have already resolved myself to buying this, probably after KS closes but if Ebay does well this month, maybe sooner:)

      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
