I am debating dropping the hill giant hunter and getting his cat at retail


Do we know if they'll be sold separately at retail?  Given that the Fire Giant is holding his Hell Hound's chain, my guess was that each giant hunter variant would be sold as a set with his or her animal companion.

Seems reasonable, but since we don't know the retail price yet and final packaging has yet to be determined, it's not a bad gamble to hold off and hope the cat's separate. Especially when the alternative is to get another set at retail that you know you want all of...




I know fantasy sells better than sci fi, but I can't help but hope that Reaper finds a way to sneak some new sci-fi heroes in somewhere, core set or otherwise. Starfinder continues to sell out and crush projections, and more than that--I'm going to be playing it, and I won't have minis for any of my characters! The Chronoscope offerings this time around are pretty pulpy, not really a great fit. There's just a small handful that are appropriate, not quite enough to make the expansion worth it to me...

the fire giant and dog i could see as one, with how interconnected they are, but i'm not so sure about the other two since their animals are just animals, not tied to the model themselves like the chain is for the dog and fire giant

Okay so Darkreach is now the best bang for buck in the expansions at 47 (maybe 46, is the beetle rider detachable?), just ahead of dreadmere at 43. Both sets have largish size mini's so definitely I'll want these two. Chronoscope not so much. Dance of death is on my list, hope we see it soon (probably not till 2 more reveals at least). Man, so much for not getting much:(

Easier to say what I am not getting


Rocky Dragon

Statues Male/Female

Modern Scenics

King of Jungle

King Cobra


 Trolls-(forgot these)


I am still on the fence for the Kings.  Having a hard time justifying $30 for 2 King Cobras that will probably just be used as a terrain prop.  I probably will end up getting the King of Jungle for the throne, but I want to see some more scaled shots first to make sure the throne will look good for giants.  This also does not include all the duplicates of core items I will be getting.  Not sure how I am going to spend more on this than B3, but I am sure that Reaper planned it that way!

We're in the foothills of the 48hr mountain. Make sure you have your climbing gear!


Oh yeah. Can't wait until the final day. Previous kickstarters have made from around ~$500,000 - ~$750,000 in that timeframe. Here's hoping we do just as well!

This kickstarter has been superior to the others, IMO. The models are better, the expansions are amazing, and the add ons are super cool. I walked from B3 with the core, stone skull, the crusaders, the frost giants, and extra hobs. This one is going to dwarf that by a huge margin.

      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.
      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
