Le sigh. I made the mistake of asking a question on the KS comments about some stuff in the live stream. When I tried to go back and find it I couldn't. And now I can't even remember what the questions were :unsure:

next time you make a comment, click on your name above the comment, then click 'comments' above the list of kickstarters you've backed, it'll display all comments you've made in order, click on the date at the bottom left of a comment to go to that part of the comment section (you can track reaper this way too)

This. All the time. Drives me crazy. The worst is when you really need to call someone about something and by the time you get them on the phone you don't remember what you wanted to say. (╯︵╰,)

Not a single mini, but my favourite set so far is the trolls.

 

That does not surprise me. ::P:

My guess is an area where "normal" food is in short supply and desperate people will eat just about anything.  They may have figured out that this normally poisionous fish wasn't after it was rotting.  (they didn't eat it, it rotted, they got hungry enough and realized that it didn't kill them).

 

Or it was a dare.

I don't remember as many calls for a roc as there were for cat dragons, so maybe there's still hope of backer requests getting one. But honestly now, I'd rather see dance of death first! Hoping dance of death gets revealed and unlocked, I actually want that now! Roc does look like a phoenix, so I think I'll need to add that to my list once its unlocked:(

 

If we do not get a cat dragon, you need to think of one factor (or at least Reaper does): sale-ability.  We fans here are a limited and rather specialized group of their customers.  We want all the minis.  Most of their customers want minis that they can correlate to a creature in game.  The Roc actually correlates to 3 to 4 creatures in various games. When everyone started requesting it, I'm sure it was a no-brainer for Ron to have it made.  The Cat Dragon on the other-hand, well you might be able to sub it in for something; it really depends on the design. Experienced GMs like novel creatures that they can use, but the vast majority want things that are easily identifiable on sight.

 

This doesn't mean that we won't see a cat dragon, just that it likely isn't as easy a decision as the Roc was.

Yes, That is helpful to see Ron and Bryan's comments in the kickstarter when they are on their mobile.  On the main account their comments are blue and easy to locate.  As individuals much harder to pick them out without getting immersed in the madness.

To add to TaleSpinner's comments:  Another thing to keep in mind is that people have been asking for a Roc for at least a couple of years.  There's been a persistent demand for it.  The cat dragon, AFAIK, is just a meme that popped up shortly before the KS campaign launched.  I would guess that Reaper was planning on producing a Roc when people first starting planning Bones IV.

 

As for Dance of Death, you can probably expect it to become one of the final stretch goals in the last day or two of the campaign.  It's a big, capstone kind of model, similar to the final stretch goals from previous campaigns.

I seem to remember last KS people asking for a cat dragon. I might be goofy, but I think that is the case.

 

And personally, I would love some kind of animated Smaug variant on dragons. Or some big drakes, or whatever. Hell, maybe if they make a cool enough mini, it will be accompanied by a pathfinder stat block soon after.

      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.

      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
