Just got an email with a tracking number - woohoo!  With luck I'll have figures in hand by the end of the week.  :winkthumbs:::D:

Just out of curiosity, what was your backer number?  I saw in some comments that a range of backer numbers had been packed, but it was unclear if there were doing this packing sequentially or what?  I haven't received a ship notification yet, and I'm trying to determine how close I am.

Tom is posting backer numbers in the KS comments as he ships (3, 6, 7, 8, 10, 11, 12, 26) so it looks like roughly in order with a few missing (one of them being me at #9 so I suspect the very large orders are taking a back seat for now which makes sense)

Had to figure out where it was!  I'm backer #10, and I got the "all characters" pledge.

Sounds like it could be a while for me then.  I'm backer #65 and pledged at the "reporting for duty" level.

I just got my tracking number as well.  Just in time for me to be at Reapercon when it arrives.

I don't know what my backer number was, though.

If y'all follow Impact on Facebook, Tom has posted a pretty detailed rundown on the trials and tribulations he's had to deal with throughout the year.

Nothing for me yet.

 

So, the project before this one, the lost minis project, has not delivered yet either. I have not received anything yet... he did say that he would hopefully have up to backer #40 done by the end of this week. I’m backer 50... so hopefully soon... I guess delays have caused both projects to be behind but find it odd that he is fulfilling orders on a subsequent project before finishing the earlier one...

      Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/399883540/orc-warband-collectors-by-yedharo-and-gt-studio-cr
       
      Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures.  Something for everyone!  
       
      I got the early bird 4 bust deal.  FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

      A friend with a 3D printer made this for me. I spent about an hour painting it, and it's now an NPC in my Eberron campaign.


       
      Painting was odd because it's not a very clean print, there are lots of little fibers and print lines on it which obscure detail. I painted very quickly with a lot of wet in wet blending. I'm quite happy with the result given the amount of time it took and the nice-at-arm's-length blending.
       
      My friend is continuing to work with the printer, so eventually he's going to print this up again at a higher quality.
       
      The design is on Thingiverse if you like it.

      What is evil, yet cute? a KICKSTARTER that's what.

      Since SoC's delivery is in full throttle, it's time to announce the SIBLINGS OF CHAOS. Coming from the dark places of the galaxy, and serving Gods of terrible designs, they march for the total ruination of everything!     from the same team that brought us Siblings of Conflict, Impact! Miniatures and Marchen return with more goodies for us (after delivery of the Siblings is complete

      ... The larch?
       
      Heh. No, but I want to try something very different from my preferred style in order to branch out and try new things.  I recently watched Coco (um... several times) and took a liking to the alebrijes, especially Pepita.  I really want Reaper to make a Pepita.  So this is my way of showing how fun it could be!
       
      The plan: A chibi lion with patterns like the traditional Oaxacan Alebrijes.  This means fun bright colors and an attempt at making a piece look like wooden folk art. It can be done!
       
      First step, research.
       
       
       
      ...and my personal favorite:

       
      Perfect!  I wanted to practice red anyway.  I ended up choosing red shadow, dragon red, big top red, seoni scarlet, volcanic orange, marigold yellow and sun yellow as my colors.
       
      Second step is to pick a mini.

       
      I supported Impact's kickstarter quite awhile ago and almost forgot I had this fellow.  It's the Venetian Lion.
       
      I set forth in an effort to prep the mini.  
       

       
      Um... it took a lot of prep. I decided to go ahead and attach one wing at the risk of making the body harder to paint.  I sanded for about half a day then filled in all the bubbles and sculpted one set of claws.  Er, I'm hoping their QC has improved since the kickstarter, because this piece took almost a day to prep.  Oddly, I think the 3D print went into the mold un-sanded and with texture, because the large surfaces had a texturing I associate with those prints.  It took several layers of sealer to smooth.
       
      But, I finally got him primed.  Isn't he cute! 

       
      Next, I basecoated with red shadow.  why red shadow, you ask?  Because red is awful at coverage because of its translucency.  So, basecoat with a red brown. This will save you frustration down the road.
       

       
      Next, layer with dragon red. Leave a few areas of the red shadow as deepest shadows.  Here's where I had to decided to commit to the wooden/statue route, because a real lion would have a darker back and a pale belly, whereas a figure in top-down light would be the opposite.
       

       
      Still not red?  Never fear!  Also, put a lot of layers of each step.  Lots and lots of layers. Next step big top red.
       

       
      Next, seoni scarlet.  I like this color.  It's super intense.  Very shiny.  Except it's matte, but you know what I mean.
       

       
      Boom! Now we're in the red zone.
       
      Now, I need eyes.  A miniature is lifeless until we add eyes.  I like doing them early because they often help guide the rest of the project.
       

       
      I basecoated the eyes with marigold yellow.  Then shaded the edges with volcanic orange.
       

       
      Then I added some sun yellow to the center.  Even a chibi eye can afford some shading, otherwise the socket looks too flat.
       

       
      After that, I drew in the iris shape.
       

       
      I used red shadow and added a pupil of nightshade purple.
       

       
      When I was happy with the shape and balance, I filled in the eye with some terra nova tundra and more of the yellows.
       

       
      Excellent!  I also mixed a bit of linen white into the yellow just at the edge of the iris ring.  Here's a front view:
       

       
      Last step in eyes if adding the white reflection.  I used pure white for contrast.
       

       
      So he's sort of a demonic cute lion.  It could work, right?
       
      Then I wanted to try out wing patterns.  For the last 3 days I've been wanting to get to the fun part, so I forged ahead and rushed to this step. As it turns out, that was an error, but it worked out in the end.  I think.
       

       
      Ok, the key to freehand is breaking down a pattern into something simple.  I started with circles.
       

       
      Filled in the circles and added some teardrop lines.
       

       
      added some more lines.
       

       
      and on and on...
       

       
      Until I felt like I was getting closer to pattern.  It was then I realized the wing looked way to flat and dull. I needed more shading.  What I should have done was make the feather lighter near the origin to add more contrast. So I glazed over the pattern.  I'll just have to pick it back up again after I'm done with the shading.
       

       
      Here's the wing with the shading.  I'll touch it up a bunch, then rework the pattern.  But I think I like it better with the change in contrast.  We'll see. I can always paint over it.  Sigh.  That will teach me to skip to the fun stuff.
       
      More later!  As always, feel free to ask questions!

      Someone in a podcast I listen to (an actual play d&d weekly affair, if I remember correctly) has this rpg based on 80s video nasties. It sounds intriguing and fun.
