Man, I'll bet Hut sales are about to skyrocket from people who have to scratch that completionist itch now. I might be one of those people!

I wonder if it would have made more sense to add Baba Yaga to the hut rather than to the core set.

 

Probably from a creating a "set" standpoint it would have made more sense, but from a business sense it was a pretty smart move for the reason trappleton mentions above.   Also the reverse; people only buying the hut add-ons will now want to get the Core Set.

The Bones paint is more like the high density paint than the core colors, yes? Or is part of the HD line? 

 

I tend to work with the core colors. I had an HD pot or two when they were still in tiny jars instead of droppers. Wasn't as big of a fan... 

 

I guess, is it worth the pledge for the paint colors for me, or find core colors or different brands for them? The other dilemma is that I want the colors more immediately than minis.... hmm.

 

Super excited for the hut with the witch though!

Bryan had said that is not HD or Bones branded paint.

The real question now being how many sets of the new paint set do you have to get to get enough of the wood triad to paint the HUT!!!!!

 

I am guessing you would need two.

I'm guessing 1! unless the hut is much bigger than than the mausoleum from 3.

Thanks, @Harrek. Hard to find all this in the depth of these many pages! Hmm. Still need to decide if I want to add them in, or seek those colors presently. The teal and the pink are the ones I like the most there.

Happy that Baba and her hut are up now. Conflicted about paints. I'm already doing a major buy in of MSP paints this year with over 80 bottles already bought and a few more to get later. They are very cheap in the KS. Set A has nice basic colours that could be useful. Set B has some more unique (well for me anyhow) colours. And how many living statues do I need? Everything else was an easy buy/no buy choice. May what for the after KS pledge manager to grab anything I'm on the fence about.

Buy all the paint, trust me, in a year and a half you will need more ,especially with hundreds of new minis.

      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.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

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
