Ok, this was the first reference I could locate from Bones 3 confirming that the figure from that Kickstarter was nicknamed Sophie's Mom, (I'm sure there's more references if you anyone dig's harder). From the Bones 3 Post Kickstarter thread:

What mini are you most excited to paint?  Baba Yaga's Dancing Hut.  After running "Reign of Winter" and crafting my own, I'm obsessed.

 

Which mini do you think will be the hardest/take you the longest to paint?  The Stygian Barge or the Pathfinder Iconics.

The Barge is big and detailed, but Pathfinder Iconics are always super-busy and take me a long time to paint.

 

What mini are you buying the most of (now or planned at retail)?  I don't do "clones" so I do not plan on getting any extra of any of the sculpts.  I have a large collection, enough to not have to worry about using doubles to fill out most encounters.

 

What do you hope to see most in Bones 5? 
 

  • female Hill Giant
  • updated and upscaled Cloud Giants and Storm Giants...the original from Bones 1 are great, but they are tiny compared to other stuff these days!
  • An Orc Wizard in the style of the Tre Manor Black Orcs...most of the other "horde" types have a caster sculpt in Bones by now.  I have plenty that would work, but I'm a big fan of continuing themes.
  • I'd been wanting one in Bones for so long, I hate saying Cyclops again, but we could use a second sculpt!  Not that I don't like the first, but as I mentioned before, the "clone" issue for a monster that can appear in groups
  • Kabaka Kawana, Ape Lord http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Dark Heaven Legends/price/03052
  • More non-Human Undead.  Especially a Zombie Ogre that's a bit more feral looking than the one from Bones 2.
  • Zombie T-Rex!

Why would you think that Sophie doesn't have two mommies? I mean, I don't know what her family situation is like. Heck, maybe she was born in a demonic commune.

 

NTTAWWT.

 

...

 

Wait.

 

:B):

 

Sophie is a succubi. The theory that she is the offspring of some combo of a polyamorous group of pansexual demons seems appropriate. Succubi are rather lusty beings after all. 

 

But more already in family from previous Bones? Good good! Shame I missed other KS rounds on hiatus!

I'm reasonably sure that the "Sophie's Mom" appellation was a fan idea, and is not canon. 

 

Sophie doesn't ask much about her family, and says going back home is "hellish, literally".

Great quote.

 

That lends more credence to the Rulers of Hell though, doesn't it? ::D:

Hey, parents can be annoying sometimes. If Sophie had to deal with three moms, two dads, and some crazy aunts, uncles, and grandparent demons? That would be extra hellish! :B):

plus the literal lake of fire. I mean, sure, she can brag that her parents had a lakehouse...

 

Learning to swim was no picnic. Water wings melt, and real wings, turns out, not so useful at the swimming. 

 

The upside was that she could be sure of no assaults from the neighbors on that side, and so her swingset was positioned to get her a real good leap if she could catch some air and land her right in the water. Plus actual tortured souls in the moats of her sandcastles.

so they don't just get two little baby versions of that angry 1 eyed smiley face with horns monster to bite on to her arms as water wings?

Oops, sorry!  While I knew that, I should have made it clearer in my statements.

 

And I can only image Thanksgiving being a nightmare, since inevitably the turkey is always burnt to a crisp; as there's no temperature gauge on Hell's ovens...

The crispy skin is the best part though!

The Stygian Barge is going to be really time consuming for sure, but I'm thinking that painting @TaleSpinner's awesome Mystic Portal may prove the hardest to really do it justice. (I didn't get a chance to say so during the KS because I was murdering myself trying to get Ma'al Drakar painted, but I meant to tell you, Andy, how fantastic your portal is - I knew I was getting that expansion the second I saw it!)

 

Thanks Guindy, that means a lot to me. :blush:::D:

Dire platypus. Other than that, more buildings/terrain stuff. Generic superhero figures would be nice.

 

I'm still a bit unclear on how to make a platypus "Dire", short of giving it a fedora.

      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
