The sneak peak is once again a stone-age Saurial type.  Seems like a hint toward some kind of saurial and/or jungle pack.

 

Anybody want to venture an educated and/or baseless guess whether's it's a core set bump, an add-on, or a full-on expansion pack?

Correct.  Reaper did not say it, I did. Yes, I am a Reaper Sculptor, but no I don't do many humans for them (or anyone for that matter; monsters, creatures, animals, and terrain are my specialties).

 

 I also didn't say caricature. It is just more difficult, not impossible to read female and full expression at the same time.  It takes skill, something you will find in both Izzy and Reaper's top humanoid sculptors.  Could I do it?  I'm not sure.  I have twice on smiling figures, but it took several tries.  

 

This is all information I got from taking Bobby Jackson's Expressive Faces class.  Bobby is one of Reaper's primary humanoid sculptors.

 

Understood, apologies I couldn't remember who made the post initially. I understood the point you were making (hopefully). And I know that Reaper's artists and sculptors are capable of making female figures look active and like warriors and not just diplomats or courtesans.

It does, though we've been told multiple times that the Chronoscope expansion is closed to new minis now.

 

That one expansion might be, but that doesn't stop Reaper adding more Chronoscope minis as separate add-ons if they decide they want them.

A land of the lost type expansion would be epic...

 

 

As much as I agree in the awesomeness of that, I think they've run out of time to begin a whole new three-tiered expansion.  So my vote is it's a core set addition, kind of like the Wild West Oz was added to Bones 3.

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?

I will be using the bloodstone gnomes as svirfneblin (deep gnomes).  Guess it would depend what you were playing though.  I typically play in the Forgotten Realms (Sword Coast/Faerun).

Depends on how closely the goals fall in line with each other. I fully expect at least 6 more milestones to be hit -- which I guess means only 3 more reveals, so maybe that is the case. We don't have much in the way of history, but Bones 2 & 3 only had 3 expansions, everything else was core or addons.

(Lucifer, for what it is worth, has just plain quit the game. Heaven? Hell? They can both go hang. He is working as a PI in Boston. (Because it's funny, that's why.))

This is essentially the plot of the Lucifer TV Series on FOX. He owns a nightclub in LA and moonlights as a Police Consultant.

      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
