Good thought, but nothing in Spam

 

IIRC, this time you have to set up your account all over again.  They didn't save your account info from Bones 4.

Can’t recall if I asked this before, but ... do we know yet when the PM closes? Basically, how long do we have to look in our selections?

 

Thanks!

August 31, 2020 unless they specify otherwise.  The date may change, but hasn't yet.

I'm trying to assess my base boss needs before i close out.  I am getting a large order considering I play Ad&d , but do not have much painting experience.  Have only a few metal and plastic minis myself, I am not sure by looking at a 2D rendering which minis are made that really ought to have a base and which ones should be able to stand on their own.  What are some good assumption some of you could recommend that I make?  Some examples of decisions I need to make:  item 1006 looks like his built in base is sufficient, but item 1010 looks like it might not balance well without a 1 inch base.   Then there are the many humanoids that are on ellipse shaped bases, not on bases at all really, like 1019 and 1024.  I realize the Core Set comes with some bases, but i'm also getting a lot of options and expansion sets.  Are all the dragons going to need 3-inch or larger bases?  I can't see item 1030 balancing at all without one, but i don't know if it needs 2 inch or 3 inch.  Once I get my order, I don't want to buy anything from Reaper (except paint supplies) for years.  I will be set for retirement nearly.  (I know, I say that, then Bones 6 will be tempting me.)  So anyway, I was hoping to get these bases and not have to order them later and don't want to tell myself to buy minis just because i over-purchased on bases.   Any pointers would be appreciated.  I will be working on my own estimations in a spreadsheet, though it will feel like a shot in the dark.

I personally base all my miniatures, rather than relying on intetegral bases, because I want uniform round bases for my minis.

December 1st is the new deadline.

 

However, if you lock stuff in by the end of this month, it will really help Reaper with their pre-production numbers they will send to the factory. 

 

Huzzah!

No worries at all.  You got me excited there for a moment that they pushed it to the end of the year ^_^

Anyone have any better/newer pictures of Yog-Sothoth? I thought I saw a glimpse of it in a stream but nothing too detailed. I remember its back looked super cool! 

 

Probably one of the ones I’m most excited about, like Nyarly from B4.

I want to say that Michael Proctor held up the model in last weeks Reaper Live episode, or the week before. Because Ron was reacting to a question about the missing Shogoth mini in the Chronoscope group shot. 
 

There are shots in this thread when they did the turn around back in 2019. But I’ll have to go look for the screen shots on my computer to easily get you a timeframe for that episode.

Group shot, not group broccoli...

Around 144, I'd say.

      Story
      In the depths of Agaldurs Keep, where the deep roots of the ancient Dwarven king's mines break into the natural homeland of the Gnomes, the magicks of the Darkewood begin to take hold. In the years after the Dwarves had left these lands the Gnomes took up residence in the lower sections of the Keep finding it infinitely more comfortable than their underground holes. Moving here exposed the Gnomes to new creatures, new tools and of course the magick that weaves through the Darkewood. Over time Gnomish society changed and began revolving around frogs and fairies instead of just dirt.
          More Gnomes? is this just an excuse for Bad puns?
      No of course not,  but when opportunity knocks it would be rude not to open the door eh?  We originally launched the 'Gnome More MR. Nice Guys' miniatures in 2018 and had always hoped to explore deeper into the history of these strange creatures. Where did they come from, What are they wearing and Why do they get so angry?  With your help in funding this project not only will we be able to answer some of these burning questions but we will also be able to bring a whole heap of brand new Northumbrian Tin Minis into production for general release next year. 
      We spent a fair amount of time considering how these gnomes fit into the world along with the rest of the Nightfolk and the Denizens of the Wood and so to help you bring a little bit more of that world to life they also come equipped with a small free digital adventure. Rumor has it that our author Ken became so engaged with the characters and lore that he built a whole campaign around it, which he may or may not have committed to paper - we shall have to see!
      We have 8 Gnomes and 5 Toads as well as an epic Toad mounted Deathstealer, Several stretch goals which include Additional free Minis!
        What do you get out of this? Well, you can get all of those fantastic miniatures we just mentioned and some addons with a fantastic discount on the usual retail price and perhaps bag yourself some free stretch goals on top!  You also get to lend us a hand in shaping these characters and the lore that surrounds them.

      Story
      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.
