i'm opposite xD i prefer armor and dread doing skin and faces

 

I've noticed a large amount of people who dislike skin lol. I'm so bad at painting thinks like cloaks and skirts and I tend to rush through armor :D 

Too bad they didn't make a hunky male giant with no shirt lol.

The frost giants are my favorite add-on yet. I'm nearing my budget limit, and that's after cutting a bunch of maybes that have just been pushed out by the latest cool offerings. 

 

I figure I can pledge x right now though, then set aside a little each month until next July to add more in the pledge manager. 

 

Side question, do bloodstone gnomes have a standard fantasy or D&D parallel, or are they specific to Reaper's world?

They are mutated deep gnome (svefilbifin or however that is spelled). Somewhere is a post from back in 2004 with the background for them.  I saw the link somewhere today or yesterday.

When I first saw the add on I miss read it and thought it said Frost Giant "Riders".  I thought it would be a giant on a woolly mammoth!

 

I was only disappointed for a second once I saw the picture and reread the title.  These Frost Giants are awesome!!

I read it that way too! ::o:

 

The sketches are gorgeous and the giantesses are my favorites in Bones 4 (so far!).

Remmember when Reaper told us that it is hard to tell females apart from males if they wear sensible clothing and dont have a caricature of feminine features. I can see that, but that just gives you the option of saying that something is a feminine male or just a normal female. So I don't really see a problem with it. You can paint duplicates as oposite gender (give a man a stuble, I say), you could allready do it to most female mages and rouges (it's a male elf I tell you).

Here I was assuming Bloodstone Gnomes were the Reaper "not-Derro."  Which struck me as odd, since Reaper has some models already called Derro.

I would prefer giants with less armor tbh. And as mentioned above a "D" cup isn't that big of you know about bra sizing and wear a bra lol. 

Im just glad to see more female giants and ones that are fearsome. 

My favorite part of the mini to paint is the skin and face so I'm biased to barbarian type minis. 

It kinda makes sense for the frost giantesses to be wearing more clothes. Sorta. I guess they're immune to cold, so it doesn't matter. 

 

I hope they make fire giantess warriors who are dressed all barbaric. And cave woman (not Raquel Welch style) hill giantess warriors. And storm giantess warriors. And cloud. And so forth and so on.

Looks at the crowd gathered around the Bones4 Kickstarter and wonders who among them are innocent...? :)

 

???

 

J--

 

I'm sure many of us have never been convicted and are thus innocent in the eyes of the law. :devil:<_<

Each of our minds is a world. In that world we ourselves decided what is innocence and what is guilt. Therefore as long as we believe ourselves to be innocent, we are so.

In regards to the KS, the giant raiders look fun. I can wait for the Dance and Blacksting, but really I don't want to.

Ouch rough hour.  0 backers and -$193 can't have too many like that left.  Hope it was the final lull before the avalanche.

It happens. People hit an unexpected bill and have to drop their pledge dollars down to something lower. I'm surprised with hurricane Harvey going on that it's not happening more.

      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
