Yes, Krull! I saw it in the drive in when I was a kid, and while the plot was tired, the idea that everyone could join together to fight a great evil was truly imprinted on me. 

 

When you look at a movie, if you try to put yourself in the shoes of the period, like way back for classics like Gone with the Wind, you can truly enjoy them. If you look at everything with the critical eye of "it could have been done better" by today's standards, you are going to rob yourself of literally a hundred years of film.

 

And yet, how many of us compared the prequels to the originals when it came to Star Wars? Or even the new ones? Newer does NOT always mean better.

And Krull had this:

When did the randomness thread get moved over here?::P:

 

When the KS got slow and we went off on a tangent. An opposite/adjacent. Yes I went there.

If you're working on 80's era fantasy movies, don't forget Ladyhawke.  It is both classic and 80's. :)

 

 

*squeeee* I love that movie so much!!

 

 

 

Yes. But for sake of avoiding the political, I am leaving my response at that. 

 

Also, for the true topic of these scores of pages....

 

Cat dragon? ::P:

Well, I know I'm nobody special, but the past 3-4 pages would've made a lot more sense in the randomness thread....

 

 

Unless Reaper suddenly mentioned (and I missed the announcement) they were making Krull, Lady Hawke, etc figures for bones 4

I find it ironic that CHAOSwolf is trying to rein in this forum that has quickly devolved into chaos ::D:  

 

I think the problem is that the KS has slowed and we've spent 2 weeks talking about the same things over and over.

 

Yet I agree with him.  Hopefully we'll get an unlock pretty soon and can get back to Bones 4 talk!

One small request to your summary, if I may.  You list Total to Next goal and Current Total pledges, but don't actually list the next goal number.  Could you please?

I added to to the text block and it should be in the next data post.

Hmm, classic fantasy movies could actually be a pretty cool theme for a future weapons sprue. Stuff like the Mindblade or Conan's Atlantean sword. Though I imagine the balance between recognisable and legally-distinct could be a tricky one, especially at that scale.

I just want another dragon!  Not including the zombie dragon that has been previewed (its awesome and I will probably get it but I just want more!).  

 

Bones 3 had so many!  This one seems lagging in the dragon front.

Well I was going to wait to up my pledge until a few more reveals, but just for the sake of "go Reaper go", I popped it higher early. 

 

Can we get a steampunk giant spider in the ambiguous "someday"? Like... Wild Wild West. A giant mechanical spider that comes with a fireball spell effect. It would be so darn pleasing :poke:

      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.

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