IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

So I'm later than I had hoped to be.  I have content for this week, but let's pick the second January update (fourth Friday 1/25/19) Content. Five options.  Use the Like this post options to cast

So yeah... I've had co workers give me a hard time about my reaper bones addiction. Here's my response.

 

Yes, I'm going to spend probably $500 in the next 30 days on bones miniatures. How much do you spend on your hobbies? Oh you just bought a $17,000 razor you will drive 2 times a year?

Yes, I've done this twice before and have hundreds of still unpainted miniatures. They don't have to be painted. but when I do paint them they look AWESOME.

Yes, I may never use these in a game. But if I want to or need to.... They are there.

Yes, I'm going to wait nearly 2 years to get these figures. I'm not a millennial and can demonstrate a measure of patience.....I think.

Yes, I'm a D&D nerd. ROLL INITIATIVE it's about to go down!

i might have to get a few of the new griffins once they're revealed

 

i have a secret soft spot for parrot griffins, and a bit of converting would give me some cute tropical griffins

 

these are templates i did ages ago using different parrot / big cat combos

I am curious as to how the KS page will/might be updated when hitting stretch goals in the middle of the night. Is Bryan just going to be living off of IV coffee and medicinal donuts for a month? Does he have a minion? Did he program an auto-updater? Will he send the update when he wakes up? Is he going to have the coherency of a new parent for a month as he stumbles around in a sleep-deprived stupor? Is his desk comfy enough for napping? If not did Reaper at least allocate him a company couch?

If it is like previous KSers, he will get up and drive to the office to post the update as close to time as he can. We all love Bryan for this and are totally fine if he sleeps in a little.

well I was hoping we'd get the xpac out of the way and see what the next unlock would be, guess i'll see in the morning. Should pick up new momentum since while we sleep in the US, the other side of the world will be getting up:) Just 3 more ?'s on the first map!

Reaper Ron seems to be on duty now. I was assuming he would update it. If not, we might have to wait until morning.

ReaperBryan said he planned to be back around 1:30am his time.

Bryan set an alarm for 1:30am.  His estimation as to when the goal will be reached.  In all truth though....people can wait...

People can absolutely wait.

 

Also, things seem to be slowing down with the night crowd. His estimate seems a little off. My guess is 2:30-3:00 for hitting the goal.

      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
