I *have* to say we're NOT DONE like that because I learned years ago that if I don't, some numbskull chimes in with OH MY GOD THEY ARE OUT OF REWARDS THIS IS THE END THERE'S NO MORE PANIC PANIC PANIC and you people FREAK out like we turned a firehose on a nursery full of kittens.  You'll note I had to keep saying "AND WE"RE NOT DONE WITH CORE" because somebody would *inevitably* say ".. uh so, I guess there's no more core, huh? What a ripoff".

 

SO i make a point, when I am confident that we will have more reveals, of saying that I know there are more reveals.

 

That you people want to interpret that as "oh, this isn't the capstone" is on you people.

 

For that matter, all this gnashing of teeth over what is and isn't a "capstone" - where does this obsession come from? We have 5 goals we saved for the end, that were our big point-of-pride-something-new-and-(for us)-revolutionary and those are what I think of as Capstones. Blacksting, Dance of Death, Barge, Argent, Treeman. 

 

 First off, Capstone is MY TERM. I made it up to describe Nethyrmaul (in Bones 1, remember that $1,000,000 was a pie-in-the-sky goal to us - I personally bet on 1.1 mil) , Kaladrax, C'thulhu, DDS2, Khanjira, Ma'alDrakar, T'Raukzul, and these 5 things. 

 

I feel like here you guys have ascribed some mythic, intrinsic quality that, honestly, never existed.

 

Well, he's a drawing on a piece of paper. So I cannot give you a height or width or anything. But yes, that is supposed to provide a sense of scale relative to a human-analogue miniature.

I take one thing away from all this.  You coined a new phrase that get's your fans super excited, "capstone".   It had far more impact than you anticipated, which isn't a bad thing.  This sounds like something you can capitalize on in future kickstarters :)

I'm just going to go "squeeeee dragons and death boats and treethings" and call it good. I like pretty much all of them, and the BF likes the ones I am less inclined towards (Nyarlotep and the skeletal dragon). I think Reaper gave us a good haul of treasure here. Even unpainted, plopping one of the big beasties on the table will make gamers pee a bit in fright. 

 

Still think it would be hilarious to have a capstone caprock. *bad puns*

 Argent is so cool!  I am super pumped for him.  I think that there has been enough murmur around here that there will be an attempt to change the scales which I think would be good but I also don't want the scales to look too similar to other dragons in the bone line.

 

I wonder if his pose is what had people a little down on him and maybe not think of him as a capstone?  I like the majestic pose but so many of the Bones dragons have a more aggressive appearance so I think that some people might have overlooked how cool he looks.  Just a thought though.

Also, I didn't fully realize just how long the ghost ship was until I laid my ruler on my computer desk and realized that at 14 inches, the ship is not only longer than my ruler, it's nearly the length of my keyboard! :blink:

Well not longer then my ruler, but mines one of those corked back metal 18" rulers:) Might be as long as my keyboard though:)

It's smaller than my laptop.

 

To be fair, I have a ginormous old laptop.

Yep, Ma'al is 12 inches tall when fully assembled. I keep pulling out my ruler, staring at it, staring at Argent on the screen, then holding the ruler next to my Ma'al and staring some more. Yeah, Argent's gonna be a BIIIIIG dragon! :wub: 

 

 

 

 

I had to get my ruler out to check for myself... yes that is going to be a HUGE dragon!  I'm  going to have to figure out something for my display shelves with Argent, Blacksting , DoD and Gauth.  Aren't they all about the same height? 

 

That's not to mention Nyarlathotep or the mossbeard which are also massive!  I see Sir Forscale in comparison to Mossbeard but how many inches do you think he is?  8-9 inches?

I've asked before, but no answer forthcoming:

 

Has anyone started compiling a list of the Bones 4 figures? It would be awesome if there was a master spreadsheet with listings of each figure with links to the reapermini.com image for all the Bones Kickstarters... I have my personal one, but it's missing quite a few figures I decided not to paint, and there are still many Bones 3 figs not listed on the site.

I don't have anything finalized yet, but have started trying to capture some of the Bones 4 Kickstarter information. I'll try and separate that out of my Bones tracking sheet and get that up for some sharing tomorrow.

Unless I'm mistaken, I think Argent is Reaper's first digitally sculpted dragon (+/- one dragon turtle).

 

It'll be interesting to see how much fine detail can be packed in model that size and still be noticeable once cast/moulded.

At $20, I think Argent will be the first 'Capstone' I buy multiples of. 

I bought 2 Ma'als with visions of painting and selling one to recoup costs for the KS. As of yet, hundreds of people have viewed my sales, but no buyers, sadly.

      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.
       
      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
