A nice thing I verified was that the Tshirts are being done by Silkworm. They are only 20 miles from here and do fantastic work. So I have gone from "meh" on the shirts to being excited!

Those t-shirts have reasonably decent looks to them as well!  I love the Coyote one, and hubby likes the Wolf, so such is good.  Never had a t-shirt from them, but many have commented they really like the company so there is that...

I had no idea when wave 1 (shudder) was supposed to ship.  I don't think I ever looked tbh.  I just say big stompy robots and figured they show up eventually.

Just over a week left to go before pledge manager closes. 

 

..And of course I had to change things at least one more time in my PM, snuck the Total War book in, and I'm trying to figure out how I'll sneak in the BattleMech Manual as well...  I honestly can't believe that my pledge is now over $900, and knowing what else I want, will reach closer to $1200 USD after second wind for the PM... (since I still want the Tuakkyid neoprene mats, a few more mech packs (at least two more Inner Sphere, and I'm debating on more clan ones).

I just wish they would get my $75 vredit in so i can finish up my Pledge.

My initial one only took 24 hours, but I got mine in during the first hour or two.  Apparently now from what I've heard in comments it's 2-3 days.

 

Snuck in the BattleMech manual as well...

*jaw drops* oh my, those are some gorgeous coins.  When I get back to my desktop I'll add them in here.  I so have to figure out how to add in Diamond Shark to my pledge...

And here I am with close to $400 usd thinking that's a lot of stuff. I probably shouldn't mention the several hundred bucks I spent on other Battletech things the last few months or the hundred or so still on the wish list. When I jump into a project (especially one I've been interested since a kid) I jump with both feet. :rolleyes:

Now for me there's no interest in things like that. They are purty but I have no use for them. There's a good chance I'll be pawning mine off later to help pay for the new regiment(s) of mechs.

I've run the math again.  I'm currently at $1,026.46 USD (squeezed in a few more challenge coins so that hubby and I could each have three), and what I'd like to add in would be another $680 USD or so (two books, bulking things up so that I've pretty much two of every mech, another six pack of battle mats, etc).  We shall see if all of that happens or not.  I suspect whatever my bonus from work will be will wind up covering that, and Bones V purchases.  I think I've gone in so heavily because of a few different reasons, but one of them really is I did love BattleTech back in the day.  The other is simply that hubby has expressed a strong interest in it as well.

 

A small part of me can't believe some of the changes I've done, but on the flipside it also does make sense, given that I want to paint more than just three colour schemes...

Spoiler

 

Clan Coyote: Trinary painted with Delta's colours (goal is to upgrade this to a full Cluster during wave 2)

Clan Wolf: Trinary painted in a hybrid of wolf in exile Golden Keshik + Omega Galaxy (goal is to upgrade this to a full Cluster during wave 2)

 

From salvage packs:

Clan Ghost Bear: Star, possibly painted as Alpha Galaxy

Clan Ice Hellion: Star, possibly painted as Beta Galaxy

Clan Mongoose: Star, pretty much can guarantee it'll be painted as Shadow Galaxy, because that's a gorgeous blue and I'm addicted to orange.

Clan Smoke Jaguar: Star, painted as Alpha Galaxy

 

Inner Sphere:

Kell Hounds: One of everything (I think it will be something like 49 mechs?)

Comstar: One of everything (I think this will be around 49 mechs?)

 

 

Metal:
Clan Hell's Horses: currently a star, but will be five stars of mechs, as well as hopefully a trinary of elementals, plus a star of armour by end of the year.  Painted as Alpha Keshik

Crescent Hawk: currently 13 mechs and 4 tanks.  Goal is to bump this up to at least 45-48 mechs, and 12-16 tanks

They probably don't have too too much use for us, but we like the looks, and have been wanting to add in decorations (for lack of a better word) for our desk, and other little fun things, so it's "easier" for us to justify.  I really, really, REALLY like that Sea Fox one.

 

 

Oh right, forgot to add this stuff in.... *whistles innocently*  Spoilered due to six relatively large pics.

Well, they finally gave me the 75 credit so I went and added another Star Colonel to the mix. Now to get that credit too!

I'm still hoping they will get the surveys out for the "add on"star colonels before closing the pledge manager.  If I had the $150 I might actually get a neoprene map set.

But it doesn't look promising.  What day is the closing date again?

Yes, I'm hoping that they get the surveys out to the add-on Star Colonel pledgers too.  I'd think about doing a 2nd Star Colonel pledge too, but I think ultimately that's just going to be overkill.  But I think I will go back to my pledge and make sure I have all the Wave 1 stuff prioritized (after considering the $75 credit - which will likely just add more mechs) and then add the few other Wave 2 items whenever I get the credit.

with going for the 2nd Star Colonel, I took a gamble that they will get the survey/credit out quickly so I can apply the credit early. If not, I will figure out something extra.

At the moment it's Feb 9th (time unspecified), but with the delay there seems to be an air of hope in the comments about a possible extention, although nothing official has been mentioned so far. 

 

I also agree, it would be nice if add-ons got their surveys so we could use the credit. 

 

I'm also absolutely nuts and thinking for second wind I might add in another two Star Colonels, but that just seems beyond silly.  Sure would get me all my mechs, plus enough elementals for everyone though... >.>;;;  it was a quick idea, probably won't follow through on it though, since it's a tad too crazy ::P:

Isn't crazy what we do best around here?  I'd do that myself if it was entirely my decision (but it's not).

Scary part is that it would be part of my portion of hobbying fund, so, hard to say.  Hubby seemed to like the idea, but we shall see.  There comes a point where it becomes just too much of a good thing! :ph34r:  ...That and I'll have to put money into Bones V at some point, not to mention that CAV dropship when it goes up, etc... 

 

But having a full trinary of elementals in three different clans (or a binary in two, and two trianries for Hell's Horses)... Ah unno, I kind of have to keep thinking about it.

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!
       
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshbeck/obsidia
       
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!
