These items are a mix between bones black and bonsium, meaning that some of the part for instance on Arakoth the spider, the mandibles are pretty bendy like bonsium and the body is feels more like bon

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.

Thanks!

 

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 ^_^

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...

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      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!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
