'Cos I shill for my genius kid often enough already?

 

(For those who don't lurk around other regions of the boards, my firstborn has an amazing Youtube channel, Overly Sarcastic Productions, on which she posts very funny, very smart hand-drawn chibi videos on world mythology and literature. This is a video by her channel partner, who specializes in world history, and it has a cameo by another Youtube historian, Shadiversity.)

Ok caught up on the drama in the KS comments.  As an outsider reading them all at once it looks like a difference in scale over what 15% means.

 

The poster considers 15% of goals responsive to backer input as small, while Reaper considers 15% of of a multi-million dollar KS significant.  I can see the argument on both sides (though I don't agree with one of those arguments).

 

Keep up the good work Bryan!

I haven't checked the thread in a few days, but wow, this is going along better than I expected.

 

Looking at the Ape Attack, their poses are giving me the same modding inspiration as the Bones Yetis. Sports themes!

 

#83 will be a boxer

#84 a curler

#85 a baseball umpire (sword become a bat)

Cool, subbed!

Anyone else notice that Arnise is the only one of the party that hasn't had a normal version done in Bones yet?  Almaran & Galladon were in the Bones I Core, while Lysette was in the Klocke Classics in Bones I.  Anyone want to book the odds that a normal Arnise will be offered at some point in this Bones KS (along with the unrevealed two if they haven't already been done)?

Bryan mentioned that he expects* her to be added in Bones at some point.

 

*NOTE: expectation does not equal guarantee.

Hey guys, this is Nicolay! Thanks for liking my idea, I'm actually sketching some examples of what it could look like at the moment, but will have to wait until tomorrow to share them on here, since it's past 1am here in the UK! (I do actually need sleep ahah)

If you had interchangeable statues, which would get your votes? My thoughts were Snake, Spider, Dragon and Lion, but there may be an obvious option that hasn't crossed my mind!

 

Welcome to the forums! We love to see everyone's art around here! So long as no one gets their hopes up about what will realistically make into the kickstarter.

Don't crush my dreams of having a cat-dragon. 

 

Okay, I'm happy if it is in Reaper's line in the highly ambiguous "eventually" if not in this KS :poke:

Well, considering some of the wish lists I have seen, including my own, 15% is probably very high ;)

 

Speaking of wish lists I must  politely repeat my request for a wish list on the Reaper website.

 

There are a lot of figures in this kickstarter I have my eye on getting in metal, and a few I discovered while looking for those. And I always need to remember what paint I'm low on. I'm just saying, help me with my addiction please.

So I'm confused about the social media goals...  Is there a new one each day?  I'm camping and not exactly on the top of my game with internet things.

I believe so. I think that every day there will be a set goal of shares that needs to be reached for that particular chibi.

I believe the quote is every few days. I see it as a way for them to help pump up the volume when stuff slows down, to give things a little boost.

      This is the 22nd project my wife and I have worked side by side together on. Posted tbis on Facebook but first time adding our project to the forums. I hope you like our Interpretation of the KS  Mammoth not sure if the is a SKU for it. C&C more than welcome. Felt with it being a mammoth a more wintery theme should be more in keeping. Enjoy. Stay safe in these troubled times.

      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.
      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
