What is the five style?

 

(btw someone might have posted something about the not-Stegadon and the not-Carnosaur on the Lizardman army forum... ) :ph34r:

 

Any rumors that I might try to work those models into a KoW Salamanders army are scurrilous lies.

Resin is just so pricey 

 

look at how much the resin ma'al was :down: way out of budget

 

Yeah. The price for Ma'al was absolutely absurd. And it's not Reaper's fault, that's just what it costs. Of course, there wasn't anything special about resin Ma'al other than it being resin. Resin Nethyrmaul sold out pretty quick, but that was special in other ways...

Ma'al also was much larger in resin.. and if there are bigger things coming, they may opt for one of those items in resin instead.. but DoD in resin would be a show piece for painters and depending on what else is in the cannon waiting to be fired, it seems like a logical choice. especially since they have the prototype already..

This (more accurate) interpretation causes me to believe that if non-avian dinosaurs existed today, they'd be much more likely to stop traffic than eat people.

 

Jurassic Park II's opening is the worst for this. Those compsognathuses are pigeon-sized! I'm surrounded by pigeons constantly and have yet to be eaten by them!

 

For the little ones, sure, but I, for one, would be suitably terrified by an 8-ton death-chicken.

That would still be an animal, and they are not just more animal sculpts.  Gotta break that typecast. :poke:

 

But... that could be anything!

 I'm about a decade behind on my paleontology. What are T-rexes supposed to look like now?

Also, 8-ton Death Chicken is now my polka metal band name.

I would want it in Resin for the detail and there instant gratification to paint it without waiting for my Bones one

Per Dr. Thomas Holtz, noted paleontologist:

 

MOST carnosaurs (aka "allosauroids") had 3 fingers. Tyrannosaurids (w/ only 2 fingers) and ceratosaurs (w/ 4 stumpy ones) aren't carnosaurs

 

Luckily this is a Blacktooth! They have 3 fingers, so they must be a relative of  carnosaurs living in the Lost Valley

On the one hand, I think the Jurassic Park look is far more badass. On the other hand, the planet Earth just earned itself another point in the Really Really Weird Place column, and that's always a good thing.

 

Just gonna take me a while to reconcile the idea that Earth's mightiest land predator had a face like a Great Dane.

Do you get to see any of the sculpts (or masters or whatever they are) that they have shown in the preview videos at the parties?  Or do they keep those locked up somewhere?

Will we have them on display tomorrow at the party?

 My understanding is yes, we will.

      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.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
