Got the Bones tracking sheets separated earlier than I thought I would and have added bases to the Bones 4 listings. It can be viewed at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1dFN0lQL096zQMq8KG5aXcgrA7-VEIEoU6W-ujck7kj4/edit#gid=142862380?usp=sharing.

 

In order to make it easier to collaborate on fixing the missing or erroneous data, I've updated the sharing to allow anyone to post comments.

 

Please comment on anything broken you see!

 

Edit:

- Now opens directly to Bones 4 sheet

With the tumbleweed tumbling in these forums; I, a man desperate for a sip, shall start the water flowing. So what interest you in the expansions offered? Kind traveler, I ask this of you.
Is it the dank caves filled with spiders and mushrooms? Mayhaps the dreary marshes rich in terrors and fishes, demand your attention. The lands lost to time may call to you, filled with living fossiles and dangerous rituals. Is it the gates leading to strange places, born from a mind that can even break the elder gods, which are irresistible to you? Or is it the future that holds sway of your mind? 

Underground my eyes are drawn to:
- The one eyed watcher, watching me now
-The mushroom maiden and her queen
- The small mushrooms with the souless eyes
-The great beasts and bugs who hunt
- The dark elves, whos colour I can not see in this darkness

In the swamp of horror these things call my name:
- The world weary people of the swamp
- The one eyed brain, whom wanted to be cthulu
- The spirit which does not belong in such a place
- Two creatures with too many teeth
- The sleepy tortuise, who walked so far
- The fish that is not a cat.

In the valley forgotten by time, I wish to taste the long exctinct: 
- Raptors, which may taste like chicken
- Big chicken, whom I assume tastes like chicken
- Crocodile, whom is said to taste like chicken
- Giant snake; who I have been informed, tastes like chicken
- Sloth, who i hope tastes better than the current members of its kind
- Carnotaurus, the smaller cousin of rex
- All cooked by saurians and giants of stone
- Jade fire may help, but for now they are shrouded in darkness

Once again I hear wispers of madness, telling me of:
- Horses with riders, the horror!
- A portal, who knows where it leads
- The beetle, ready for combat
- A bed which is mocking me
- Dwarves, ready to tenderise that chicken
- A snail, tha may be used in cooking.
- Shark who stood still
- An ogre that has reached the hight of stupidity
- Cats, who walk on two legs
- Lamps, flames and wishes
- A bard who sings with ink

A tranmission I recieve, the static forms words:
- Of long dead species, walking in different form
- About a cosplayer in white, holding a blaster. Hans who is solo
- "Brains from mars"
- Feathers in robes or on thrones
- A slug. Screaming in pain from the touch of lightning
- DOOM!! Held in the hands of a troll
- Androids, cyborgs and robots


For now I must bid you good night;
for I am down under.

I'm most interested in the ghostly barge and tree of despair (I might even want multiples of the tree!). The skeletal monsters and 2 large dinos are also something I want to get. I might get some of the other options, but it will be highly dependent on what I can afford and if I want to grab multiples of the things I'm more interested in.

The core set is not that interesting to me, at least 75% of it. There is so much content in it that I may grab it anyway.

The bog skeletons, cat folk, and female efreeti/djinni are all interesting from the fan favorites. I kinda wish I could pick and choose just some pieces from that set, as I'm not really interested in the dwarves, hellhounds, and generally a lot of stuff there. Same with Darkreach and Dreadmere, to some extent. Dreadmere has this Cthulhu village theme going for it, which really pulls at me.

The Lost Valley expansion is intriguing, as it it reminds me strongly of Warriors of the Eternal Sun (old Sega Genesis D&D game). The runehorn hut is disappointing for me, as it seems like a giant blob (like a lot of Mcfarlane's Spawn figures. Hah!). I wish it was more like a tent and that we could see a lot of details inside.

I'm most excited for:

 

- Argent (I not bahamut) already looking at the art in 3/4e to get ideas on how to modify him to give him more of that look and how to paint hi. I do wish he was bigger. Size scaled to 18 inches tall would be ideal for me but I understand he's the same height as maaldrakar (not tiamat). I just hope they don't add scales like other reaper dragons. He should have a more elegent look. More subtle scales. More smooth look

 

- chaos frogs (not slaad). With them and the hordes Charon heavy warbeast that I will remove armour and resculpt areas so he's a pure frog thing, I'll finally have slaad :)

 

- after those, I guess the dinosaurs. This Kickstarter didn't have near all the stuff I was hoping for but it has a few really cool things.

 

- I may have to make a resin copy of the DoD base and then break it and make copies to use as jagged rocks. Love the base more than the dragons. I would buy just the base if I could 

 

Regards

What were you hoping for that didn't come to fruition?

It seems kind travellers that you misunderstood my question. I did not ask for your prefered extras, but which parts of the expansions called the most to you. 

Yet since you have choosen to speak of the extra additions offered to us by the reaper man, I shall endevour to entertain.
I certainly shall meet:

- The dragon with the name of silver. His size unmatched, if misunderstood due to our perception.
-  The dragon children, so innocent in their ignorance
- A pile of treasure and its turtle
- The hunters from the icy tundras
- The courtship dance of dragons, interwined in love.
- Not a wyrm. Not a drake. Not even dragon. Just a humble wyvern with a sting.

My legs may take me to:
- Hell. A place were the old book says I belong, while the new one disagrees. Where I shall commune with the rulers.
- The walking dead dragon, a disgrace to its kind. The ruins it guard may have a secret or two.

If I can still walk I may visit:
- The creature of a thousand forms, insanity is subjective, $3ul^>l^t3!co$tn3rruCn0d3s^8
- The house on two legs, or is it a chicken.
- A great being stripped of all its flesh.
- The first being I would meet shall be the last one too. Just like the circle of ....

So apparently Mr & Mrs Bones couldn't survive the stress of the Kickstarter's final days...  It may explain their absence...:lol:

 

((Here's hoping they appear in the Pledge Manager anyway.  It's hard to keep the undead down after all! ::D:

      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
