So everyone warned me about the craziness that is a Bones KS and how fast and exciting it is...  No one prepared me for the fallout for when the KS is over and I have no stretch goals to checkout and I can read the previous night's comments in just a couple of minutes.  I feel lost.  I hope once the PM opens up that people trickle back in here!

I'm seriously thinking of getting two of the rulers of hell, just to mod one as rulers of the forest too. I'd just need to make some pretty fairy wings...

That's brilliant!

The real question to ask is are you still going to be painting things in 2 years? If you are, why wouldn't you want to get the paints at less than half what you could get them at retail (from reaper at least)

 

If they were colors I was likely to use I would have jumped on it. My paints are starting to run out and get old and that is a steal deal.  But I have a set of favorite colors and Set A isn't it.  Set B is also a big nope.  For new painters and people who haven't settled on a palette, great deal, go for it.

I basically agree. The only caveat is that if you're counting on the paint sets for basic colors, what are you going to be using between now and 2019?

 

The sets are a great deal if you already have enough paint but enough is never enough for you. :rolleyes:

 

That's been me until this project, honestly, but I'm finding myself cutting way back on the paints I want to carry to paint group, so adding more of the same seems like it might be even less sensible than it was for the last several projects.

I got the new paints last time, but not really sure about this paints this time. Teh Feb delivery worries me a bit as my paints will go to Austrailia and then to Japan, so two chances to freeze on the way. I know Australia will be summer but the ship to Aus will be traveling through winter also. 

I think many Canadians who also pledged on the paints have this on their mind.

 

Especially if the shipment goes through with UPS again. They don't do PO box addresses, and by the time I make them understand that "NO! you can't leave it outside in freezing weather", the paints are at risk of freezing/thawing several times.

I can't take credit for the idea. Someone else posted the idea many pages ago. I happened to think it was brilliant also ^_^

Any paints that are damaged in transit will be covered by our warranty replacement, and would be eligible to be replaced for no charge. As a courtesy we ask that you wait to ask for replacement until the threat of freezing is minimal.

Oh you think it is bad now? Just wait until we start getting vague rumors in the future surrounding an announcement of the Bones V Kickstarter.. Your whole endocrine system will go completely bonkers in anticipation! ^_^

I can't believe the spell checker let Yggsdrasil pass!

 

 

I've found that my spell checker has started checking Japanese Romanji dictionaries for words that I hadn't used before and suddenly new words are being corrected or passed. I may do a lot of Japanese fiber art research.

      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.

      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
