I haven't heard many people talking about it but I am really excited to see more of the Nyarlathotep!  He looks huge and pretty awesome from the concept art.

 

I'm looking forward to seeing the Nyarlathotep concept art finished as well.  I've really enjoyed all the Lovecraftian pieces Reaper has done in the past few KS's - and I'll put my vote in now for Hastur/The King in Yellow to be done in next one.

You know, glancing at the KS during the final hours, I was a little bit disappointed that there wasn't as obvious of a capstone that would rival Mal.

 

Dont get me wrong, I love the barge and Argent. But I think because I didn't understand how big Argent is going to be, I was underwhelmed. 

 

I finally got a chance to watch the 'live stream' last night. Quotes because now, there is nothing live about it. 

 

And I believe they showed that DoD is almost 12 inches tall. Seeing that Argent is 12 inches tall tells me he is going to be massive and fitting as a Not baphumat and as a foil to Mal. My excitement for him has increased by 10 fold. 

 

Maybe because im so used to seeing Sirforscale, I don't know how to judge size by numeric measurement. Sure measurements are probably more accurate, I still have a hard time picturing exactly how that size will feel in terms of scale. Having a human sized figure for comparison I feel is much more helpful than that. 

 

I hope that doesn't come off as a criticism. My intention is to give an observation of my epiphany. 

And to say I am now very excited for Argent.

Actually I am liking Argent more than the Traditional Capstone type figure we had been thinking of getting during the kickstarter.

 

 Why you ask?

 

Well 2 reasons.   1. I like big Dragons and have few.  This will be the first time I get a big dragon that does not have 5 heads.  This guy is a  nice majestic posed huge dragon that could just look amazing.  2.  He is not 60 Dollars.  This is huge for me.  60 dollars is 4 or 5 other things in this great kickstarter and just about everything in it is pretty spectacular.  So not having a $60 Capstone eating away at all the smaller but still awesome stuff is just fantastic for me.

 

On another note.  I like the Morloc cavemen guys but I think some Prehistoric Dwarves to go with the Prehistoric Elves would have been a little more interesting to me.  But they still look good.

The price point is what I liked about argent as well, definitely getting him! The Morlocs are awesome, already have a diorama in mind for them if I can find a nice george and weena stand in's:)

Argent being 20 dollars to mee seems amazing value. Such good value that the moment i realised his size I thought about droping some other things (dragon turtle, zombie dragon) to get a second argent instead. 

OR, you could budget in between now and July an extra 20 bucks and get em all:)

Argent is a great capstone. its ideal for molding 1 large piece with maybe 3-4 pieces total which is gonna make the detail much easier to define and lowers the cost significantly Would i have liked a hydra or something complicated sure but this makes so much more sense.

 

and for 20 dollars I am likely to buy multiples to give to players who want to get into painting because a solid color large mini is the perfect first painting piece. And (not to be a cheap about it) but a foot tall dragon resale is so much higher then lets say if Nyarlathotep is a foot tall, you could buy 10 argents paint half and have the other half pay for most of your kickstarter in a year or so.

 

Love the capstone would love to see the finalized object when its reworks are done in maybe one of those 3d spinning model programs with sir forscale to get people excited about it

I never saw anyone from Reaper or you say it wasn't the capstone.  But many were implying they did see some Reaper person say that it wasn't.  That seemed to be the perception, false as it was, unfortunately.

My mistake, then. A review of the past 6 days of comments indicates multiple instances of commenters indicating it was not the hinted at "capstone" piece, and one post from you 3 days ago that I didn't previously see confirming it was. There was a lot of misinformation and confusing regarding the capstone piece, and the reveal of Argent felt somewhat lacking in the fanfare I would have expected for such a piece, but that's likely due to the frenetic pace at the end. Glad to have this finally clarified for me.

You most certainly did not.

 

I looked through the campaign posts a little bit and I think I see what happened. is that if you looked at the price point and went "That's cool, what's the capstone?" the line "We've got just a few hours to go, and we're NOT DONE showing new rewards! Stay Tuned!" would be totally consistent with the mistaken assumption that Argent wasn't the capstone and there was another big one coming.

 

Not sure that explains all of it but that's my best guess right now.

 

Oh well! :)

 

I think we might spend more on this than we did on Bones 3. And Bones 3 was a dangerously high total...

      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.

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