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

If you're looking for a large Rock Monster, have you seen Reaper's Earth Elemental?

If the scale on that thing is right, it would definitely work!  Problem with so many of the Forge World monsters is a serious lack of scale photos compared to other models.  Between the costs and ease of working with the material, I would much rather use Bones models for my big models.

 

I mean, I have half a Mordheim warband that's various Bones models, and they look perfect next to some GW models for that.

 

Goodness, that Fan Favorite expansion looks neat.  Kind of small, but definitely interesting, and I'm excited to see the rest of it!

 

Thank goodness for the Pledge Manager!

There is literally the blade from my old pizza cutter embedded under the putty.  I used it as an armature.

 

 When I first saw that, I immediately recognized how you did it - I use an upside-down plastic base as the armature for sculpting the ring of rocks around my campfires...

Good morning everyone!

Uh, I slept through 3 updates. 

I like the idea for the fan favorites, though I can't really say if I'll pledge for it, since we have no idea what's coming.

Oh, and I forsee a "why is there a penguin/toaddemon/hellhound/... in it, but not the very special xyz I have shouted from the roof tops since day 1?!"

It sounds like I'll be getting the Fan Favorites set. My partner is already planning how I'm going to be painting those hellhounds. Some sort of cracked stone, perhaps jade. Deep jade? White jade! With inclusions...

Or, like the terror dogs from Ghostbusters.

Good morning, everybody!   How nice it was to wake up and find Ghost Pirates in my inbox!  ::D:  

 

They look like the perfect thing for the Scooby Gang to unmask as really being Mr Jenkins the old lighthouse keeper! :lol:

 

Looking forward to what the day brings!  

 

 

And woohoo, we're only 11 backers away from hitting the Bones 2 backer total!!!!!

Nice new additions to the info dump! Didn't think it was going to happen, but Bones 2 backer numbers are going down! We'll probably get pretty close to Bones 2 total too. Amazing!

      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
