I ordered my first Stonehaven mini off ebay yesterday. One of the gremlins, he may become a goblin gunslinger for We Be Goblins. Will wait for that + hopefully they show some greens for the sculpts. I like Stonehaven but their recent price hike makes them a bit out there for me. KS prices are decent thou.

Wish they at least had some greens to look at, hard to know how these will look from just concept art.

I hear you and agree, but having backed many of their previous kickstarters I will say that with a few exceptions, the sculpts match the concept art very closely.

 

I think it helps that Mike is both the artist and the sculptor.

If I recall correctly they stopped selling directly and only sell their minis though a third party. Hence the price increase.

Tempting. I will probably pledge for this. The stuff that I like from Stone haven I really like. but so far each group looks like it will have at least one of their habits that I don't like. Weird flattening in their poses, like that poor half elf woman whose neck is snapped so she can look left in a completely perpendicular manner. The first group looks pretty good for the most part although the sorceress's staff will be at a weird angle, it shouldn't be too bad. I'll have to see if other groups unlock or if I'm going to have to ala carte this.

 

hmmm. looking at the greens on that instagram the half elf is still pointing her spear down weirdly but her head is not turned ninety degrees so that's promising at least. I actually want that mini a bit now.

Their half-dragon duelist remains one of the best minis I've ever had the pleasure to paint. Their best moments are truly special indeed.

 

 

But that price hike's still in place, huh? Drove me off their last KS. Store prices were plumb nuts. Ah, well.

I don't think the price hike affects the KS prices for them. Store prices are just a bit unfortunate though. Which is sad because I did want to back the halfling KSer but didn't have the money at the time. So now i'm not likely to ever get them.

Edit: Very much agree on that half dragon duelist

It's a 30 day project, so that's a long time to keep people's interest on KS these days. I expect they're just holding the greens to show gradually throughout the project.

I hope it does well for them - I wasn't too keen on some of the earlier stuff, as it was a bit flat for my liking, but Mike's really improved with this lot. I love that dwarf!

Even though I probably never need another Goblin or Kobold again, I really like Stonehaven's take on them.  The semi-Pathfinder Goblins but with more equipment just...works!

Yeah, the prices post-Kickstarter have gotten insane.  The last project, Adventurers 2017, was pretty expensive as it was only per-piece prices, but this one is closer to their old pricing structures if you get groups.

      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
