But I meant a rock. This is me we're talking about...  I like rocs. But... rocks. 

 

You could always paint a roc up like a rock. Something sedimentary might look cool with the various feathers.

 

Then glue it to the hut...

Why bother gluing on anything,  it it tilts back and forth, it will have a natural rock to it.:ph34r:

I just checked my paints. I ordered both sets and everything arrived in the correct quantities, but they are labeled oddly. 

Pledge manager set A was labeled: Set 2A, Set 2B.

Pledge manager set B was labeled: Set 1A, Set 1B.

Does anyone know why the counter isn't moving?

 

 

The best guess ive seen put forth is that the move to the new warehouse, and the new internet hookup they had to do, messed up the auto update link to the tracker.

I seem to remember the latest batch of Reaper giants being more tailored to D&D 3 / Pathfinder sizes since the original sculpts were too small.

 

3.X Giants and Pathfinder Giants were only Large except Cloud and Storm Giants.  The original Bones 1 Giants matched that description.  5E upped their size (or returned it to 2E) and Bones 3 updated their size to reflect the now Huge Giants.  Then the new Wizkids minis came out that were even bigger.

3.x and Pathfinder giants Frost and Fire giants are Large creatures, taking up a 2" diameter base. 5e apparently upgraded them to "Huge" or occupying a 3" diameter base, which is why Reaper's giants in Bones 3+ are larger. Giants created prior to Bones 3 were built for 3.x/PF, but future giants will be too large to be standard giants for those games, as they're designed for 5e instead.

yeah i've been asking for the storm giant they showed a few months ago to be scaled up to match storm giants from Gale Force 9 (whose collector series are also official D&D). their storm giant is like an inch taller than the prototype 3d printed one reaper showed.

In 2E giants were huge sized.  They downgraded them in 3.5 and brought them back in 5E

I wonder if they had a label mixup with one person thinking there was a paint set 1 and paint set 2, but there was supposed to be an A and a B paint set. I got a 1B and a 2B, because all I ordered was paint set B, but 2B had A paint in it (matches you).

Remind me to keep taking pictures of the chicken-hut. It does stand up, but I am noticing that it has a lean - I am wondering if the lean will increase with time or not. If so, I'll need to stabilize it by putting a rock on its butt. 

 

So... instead of a Chicken-hut, it's a Chicken-lean-to?

      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
