Hmm the rules are just fine, a little barebones 

most of the doggie flavor is created by 2 dog features at l1,  and a few class specific feat choices. 

the  warlock in the last post took  "Incessant barking" and "Digger" 

some of the powers and items have amazing doggie flavor

 

I think I will bump up bite damage: 

currently 1d4+str,  -> @lvl5 1d6, @lvl 10 1d8

I think ill make it 1d4 small/1d6 medium and add a dice at levels 5&10 

I don't see how the dogs make any use of melee weapons -  and damage should keep up with a cantrip. 

a dagger in the teeth?  sure, a great axe ? um no. 

the rules do not forbid any weapon use, just encourage specially built weapons for dog's lack of thumbs. 

 

the ranger has a crossbow and the coolness of winding /firing a crossbow with your back leg means im willing to suspend disbelief. 

 

 

Edit: 

for people worried about size, this is one of the small or "lapdog"  sized, the others are mostly larger, but still no larger than a halfling.

The rules PDF has dropped!  and I painted my Dauchshund Warlock !  pics later   

Mine arrived! And they look really good.    These (under the legs) were the only imperfections I could find and they're really slight. I'm pretty sure paint will get it covered up with

Back in 3.5 D&D, my druid made great use of the Wilding Clasp magic item. It attached to an item and allowed a creature without thumbs to use it. Very handy.

Received my box of minis today. Didn’t receive any shipping notice before hand.

 

Being one of the last here, which seems the norm for me, to receive my minis, there’s not much I can say that hasn’t already been talked about.

 

The minis look to be a step up or two from what is referred to as board game plastic. I do wish they had gone with a grey rather than a brown plastic. I had feared they would be worse, so I’m happy with them.

 

And yeah. Brown plastic against black plastic doesn’t work. And the box is big enough for twice as many minis. But the quality of the box and the shelf appeal is quite good.

 

Dont know that I’d be interested in the cats.

But you're a tiger, Darsc!! A big kitty! 

 

My mom still hasn't gotten hers. I did get a shipping notice and a tracker though. Amazing for Canada to get something from the states before Oregon! FedEx handed the package to USPS, and it says she should have the pups by Friday.

Fedex finally got off their duff and handed it off to USPS, my doggos arrived today.  I agree with the general consensus; they look great, but brown on black is a terrible display choice.


Don't forget about the art cards behind the plastic insert!

Wow! Faster than expected! No shipping notice but mine arrived today! Very pleased with them overall, some of mine do have fairly soft detail around the eyes which I'm sure will be really fun when it comes time to paint but overall I'm very pleased.

 

The packaging is unnecessarily large though, even if they wanted everything to be seen through the "window" there's still tons of clearance on each side- not sure if it's poor design, a manufacturing flaw or what.

 

Will definitely get the cats when that becomes an option.

Where abouts in OR does your mom live? Some reason I thought she lived in Colorado.

 

Told my players about em & a couple people were amused by it. Only reason I can see the larger box is for retail presence.

She's south of Eugene with her three dogs, two cats, two snakes, and a horse. She enjoys her menagerie.

Nice area. One of these days, I'd like to live on that side of the state. It has so much more to offer then the dead err desert side.

 

In my Monday night game, I had a Ranger character level up to 3 & took Beasthunter as his archetype. I was hoping he would have taken a dog. Alas it was a panther.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Bloody Peasants! by Midlam Miniatures — Kickstarter
       
      Story
      "Oh no!  It's an armed agrarian uprising!"
      Toiling in the fields for their feudal overlords, the peasants are equally quick to turn their tools to defending their lands from monstrous invaders or, when pressed to the limit, revolting and overturning cruel and greedy landowners.
      Bloody Peasants!
      A selection of human and halfling farmers in 28mm scale miniatures for all of your fantasy games.
      You can choose from humans, halflings or both!
      The Humans
      A familiar sight in the villages surrounding Midlam.
      The Halflings
      A smaller folk, doing the same jobs as the longshanks.
       
       
       
      It's a Midlam project, so you know what that means;
      Maybe a stretch goal, very possibly an early fulfillment, and absolutely no nonsense.

      I'm backing this because the kobolds look more like Scottish terriers! 
       
      $100 level has 40+ miniatures and FREE USA shipping!
       
      RBJ Game Company has created 18 KS projects, mostly miniatures. Let me know your experience with them if you backed before.
