Cool thanks! Hippocampus could be Greek too though, right?

It wouldn't surprise me if the map is both greek and ocean themed, given that greece has tons of islands. Or the ocean themed map could blend into the next map if that's greek themed or vice versa.

You know, I read Buglips posts and I think. 'there's just no way that a goblin is this wise'. Then I had an epiphany, Buglips must have been reincarnated into a goblin. Shall we speculate on what he was before a goblin?

Not inappropriate at all.  Frankly i had the same feeling wen i first got the concept (I'm about as old school as they come).  The issue is with 5e base rules that often conflict with the descriptions of the creatures.  It must fit on a 2 inch base or a sizable amount of 5e players wont buy it; but it can't fit on said base and still match the description.  Catch 22 for Reaper.  Hence the head up pose.

 

But, to answer your question, your comment was exactly the sort I like getting.  Makes me a better sculptor.  Thanks!

 

Its good to hear you found the feedback useful rather than hurtful. ^_^

 

To be honest, other than the pose, I really love that sculpt; everything else about it really captures the image I have in my head of a catoblepas.

 

As far as 5e players are concerned, I can understand them wanting things to be compatible to their preferred rule set, but I think they may be a bit anal about the subject If they cant handle a limb or neck overhanging the base some.

 

If it were to be re-sculpted, I think something similar to what Sirithiliel suggested could be a good compromise; lowering its head some, but not enough that it would interfere with placing other minis next to it.

 

No matter what though, you and the other sculptors and Reaper keep doing your thing, because all of you produce some amazing sculpts. :winkthumbs:

You're right that broad, constructive feedback can generate positive change, and that companies (Reaper included) listen. If your feedback is constructive, I would never suggest that you shouldn't share it.

 

I just feel like I have wound up in, alongside, or near too many toxic Internet hate riots, and choose to recuse myself. That is also why I read and post here, rather than on the Kickstarter comment thread. I recognize that it is a personal choice not to engage, not a universally applicable code of behavior.

 

Edit: @Walrus, I just realized that you quoted your own comment in your post. I don't think you really need my validation, but as a guy-on-the-Internet, I think that was a pretty reasonable expression of preference. Sorry for not noticing it sooner.

 

Oh, I can understand wanting to stay as far away from internet hate mobs as possible. If the web has one flaw, its that it amplifies the human capacity to put others through hell over the most minor of offenses.  So don't feel like I'm criticizing you for not personally engaging with it.

like here's a quick mock up of how i would do it. 

i'd slice the back of hte neck near the soldiers and take a wedge out, and do the same under the chin. I'd bend the neck forwards and tilt the head up, and putty fill both gaps to get it to stay

 

then i think i'd sculpt in mane to cover the gaps so i dont' have to get the pebbly skin exactly right

 

...now i want one

As I said to TaleSpinner above, I actually think this might be a good direction to take the mini if Reaper were so inclined to modify the sculpt. I think something like it could be a good compromise between the desires of people like me and 5e players.

 I tend to avoid the Kickstarter comments as well.  The most severe toxicity, IMO, I have generally found on the Facebook fan page. But I tend to avoid Facebook in general for that same reason.

You Tube video comments.

Looks like when I paint these up, Shavynra will be black, Valfuryx will be green, Aganzarax will be white, and the one with neck frills will be red. By process of elimination that leaves the last one as blue, though I don't recall exactly what it looks like.

 

Edit: Interesting, there are holes in the wings of the render that aren't there in the display model.

      About
      First Legion 75mm Fantasy "Femmes Fatales" Resin Figure Kits
      A new series of provocative 75mm Fantasy Resin Figure Kits, each one beautifully sculpted and cast and a joy to paint.   
      Who We Are
      First Legion has long been a leading producer of 60mm scale superbly hand painted historical metal and resin figures as well as metal and resin figures kits in various scales. We most recently expanded into 28mm Fantasy miniatures with a huge launch of amazing sculpts that will be coming to retail early next year.   Please visit our websites and social media for more information.
      First Legion Historical
      First Legion Fantasy
      First Legion Facebook
      First Legion Instagram  
      The theme of the series is "Femmes Fatales", beautiful but dangerous women characters. Whether by force,  guile, or seduction these ladies are not to be fussed with.    There are 7 figures in total, each one more beautiful than the next and ranging in style from Gothic, to far eastern, nomadic, northern, and even an Aztec.   The commonality to them is that they are all stunning models of beautiful, dangerous women.  
      Those of you who followed our 28mm Fantasy Minis Kickstarter will recognize these figures from the "Femmes Fatales" Core Set.   They were originally sculpted in 75mm scale and reduced in scale to 28mm to be included in that KS as part of our 28mm fantasy series.  We present them here as originally conceived.    
      Unlike our 28mm KS, which had 170+ models, this KS is purposely very simple and very succinct.    Stunning models at great prices with rewards shipping in just 3 months!    
      Pledge Levels
      The first 5 Figures listed below are tied to pledge levels with selections to be made in our pledge manager following funding.   The higher the pledge level, but better deal it is on each figure.  
      Early Bird Pledge Levels are open for the first 27 hours.
      Add-On Sets
      The last two are available as an add-ons only, or as part of the "Drop Dead Gorgeous" Pledge Level.  Finally, there are three more that will be optional add-ons tied to stretch goals. 
      Resin Figure Kits
      All miniatures are produced in high quality resin and provided unpainted and unassembled.
      Mature Audience
      The figures below contain some nudity and are not suitable for audiences under 18.
      If you are offended by such figures, please stop reading and just move on.   They are purposely designed to be risqué, sexy, dangerous, and above all beautiful.

      I’m interested in what people here think of this.
      It seems like a great idea, but I’m wondering if there might be some unforeseen drawbacks.

      EDIT: It's live! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/oathsworn/oathsworn-burrows-and-badgers-anthro-miniatures-mouse-dog-cat
       

      We love miniatures. We love tabletop games. We love anthropomorphic animals, from Disney's Robin Hood through The Wind in the Willows to Brian Jaques' Redwall books. So we combined the things we love in our Burrows & Badgers tabletop skirmish game and the accompanying range of miniatures. And our Kickstarter backers have already helped us to grow the range to over 100 miniatures - but now it's time to add some more!

      Some miniatures from previous projects...
       
      Why are we making more miniatures?
      Because we want more characters for our Burrows & Badgers games – my Freebeast warband needs reinforcements, for a start! 
      And we know a lot of other people are looking for more anthropomorphic animal miniatures too. A lot of people are playing Burrows & Badgers now, and many of them have asked for Massive Hounds and a Massive Raptor, so we've sculpted them! Some will want to use them for other tabletop or roleplaying games, while others love painting miniatures, and our figures are perfect for that, full of character ready to be brought to life with your paintbrush....
      And some people just love collecting miniatures; again, we've made this new set of Burrows & Badgers figures perfect for collectors. They are all single piece models, with integral bases, so there are no fiddly parts to be glued on.
      We love making miniatures; we hope you'll love our miniatures too.
       
      Why we need your help...
      We've got 17 new miniatures sculpted, but they need to have moulds made before we can start producing the miniatures. And that's why we need funding; to get the production moulds made, and get the casting process started.
       
      About the miniatures...
      There are other ranges of anthropomorphic animal miniatures out there, but ours are a little different. We didn't want all the races of animals to be the same size. Instead, we've scaled them to each other; so a shrew or a mouse is a very small model, about 20mm tall, and a really big animal like a badger will stand about 50mm tall, for example.
      Each sculpted figure shown below has a scale picture with it, showing its height in millimetres. All our models are supplied unpainted.

       
      The Pledges
      We’re keeping it as simple as possible; there’s an ‘All-in’ pledge, which gets you all the new miniatures in this Kickstarter, and any bonus bits that may come along… there’s also a ‘Pick’n’Mix’ Pledge, if you just want to get a few of the new miniatures. For the Pick'n'Mix, just total up the prices of all the miniatures you want, and pledge for that amount. There's a minimum pledge of £10. There's only six of the sculpts shown so far, but expect more to be added regularly... I'll probably add two or three a day!
       

      ^Minimum of £10

      Pledge Level: The Great £40
       

      Pledge Level: The Small £64

      Pledge Level: All In £99

      About
      -Hi everyone, this time I propose you a Fishing Village:
      5 Houses   7 Footbridges  1 Bridge -A few years ago I did something similar for video games 
      here you can see the video: and I've thought of creating models suitable for 3D printing.
      -The models are in scale for 28 mm miniatures and are divided into components to be assembled without glue only joints.
      -Doors, windows, nets and winches are printed separately.
      -Each house is playable inside, with working doors and on the ground floor there is a fireplace with the pipeline out.
      -The prints you see below have been made with an Ender 3, layer 0.2 mm, infill 5%, Pla Geetech white, the models have been designed to have as few supports as possible, I printed them with an overhang of 80 ° -85 °, support Z distance 0,3 mm.
      -I highly recommend the use of printers with a print bed of at least 20x20x20 cm (for this scale).
      -Paint with cans and acrylic colors.
      -Each house needs about 500-800 grams of filament.
      -I put hooks scattered on the houses to attach cordage or oil lamps 
      -I remind you that only digital models will be sent to you, NOT PHISICAL ONES.
      * Good fishing ... *
      By removing the base you can have houses for a land village.

      Tomb Guardians use many of the same sculptors as Reaper so some of the sculpting styles might seem familiar.
