 Is the female demon's sword detached? Could we make her a lefty?

While the piece that came of the printer had the sword as a seperate piece, it is unknown until we receive the test pieces from China exactly how they translated it into their mold.  They have often changed our jointing and attachment points.

So can I ask if the weird little circles on the back of the demon are not part of the actual final sculpt?

I'm not trying to start a big commotion or anything, just curious.

The last version I saw did not have the armor around his wing attachment points, however, I did not send the actual model to China for the mold making, so there is an uncertainty about my answer for the final version.

 

The female's wings do attach in her hair, but green work for hair is pretty easy to cover the holes.

 

And please accept my disclaimer that changes often occur with the masters we send to make them work in the molds so current probable answers may be different once we receive the actual test runs.

Ahhh so you are going to be testing my sculpting skills of which I have none.  Guess I better practice for the next few months ::D:

Another problem with converting the Rulers of Hell to more woodland-like creatures is going to be de-skulling them.   Looking at the concept art and the photo of the Queen master from the update, there are a lot of skulls on them/her that will need cutting off; some of which look like they're integrally designed into the shape of the armor...

Skulls can work with woodland creatures, make them more aged and yellowed. They are protectors for the forest and things age and die and decompose in the woods and fertilize the soil. 

All the skulls!!!!!

I love all of you posting about necrodruids!!!

 

I just got around to the update, flipped out about that babe with those stinkin' adorable hooves, and my brain went, "I am death, protector of the forests" immediately.

 

We also finally scrabbled some funds about and we've got the rulers of hell, dance of death, and a certain art book on our list, along with a couple other things. :wub:

What an I going to do with the fantasy scenic pieces? Uh... Paint them? Hopefully use them for Frostgrave?

 

Thinking though about what the first mini I'll paint from the core set will be... Fair chance it'll be the pumpkin cart.

Translucent green passengers with the barge.

So I don't see a lot of people getting The Roc.  Why is that?

 

I am still on the fence about it and am curious about other people's opinions.

 

I am, but I am hoping that the legs get more hawk-like. The legs remind me of a chicken more than a bird of prey.

Oh, I need to get at least two, possibly three. One to be a giant eagle, one to be a Phoenix, and one to be a thunderbird. 

 

Wait, make that four. One to paint up like the Seattle seahawk, for Hubby's buddy.

      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
