If it's cast in translucent red we get a Ruby Dragon.

 

If it's cast in green, an Emerald Dragon.

 

Blue a Sapphire Dragon, orange a Topaz Dragon, purple an Amethyst Dragon.

 

If it's cast in clear we get ALL of these things and more. And will need to buy a new model EACH TIME. A Jade dragon, a Lapis Dragon, a Diamond Dragon, an Opal Dragon, a Turquoise Dragon, an Onyx Dragon, an Obsidian Dragon...

 

A new model needed EACH TIME.

 

Think of teh monies, Reaper... A new model for every gem...

 

This all depends on the shape of those darn crystals, not the color!

 

But yeah. Make them clear if they're going to be translucent material. Think they'd sell more, since then it could be whatever a person is looking for?

Aaah, who cares what shape or how many sides the crystals have?  [runs and hides behind @Pezler the Polychromatic]

I just don't like how prepainted ones look. I have far too few painted due to time/energy constraints. But I slap unpainted on the table gladly. Prepainted seems cheesy to me. Unpainted leaves more freedom for imagination, I think.

Less than 1800 to go to the next unlock. A little frustrated/disappointed at the news that no scifi/Chrono until map 6. That's 200k at least before one.

I have a very small window to paint where I live because its always cold and moist here.  So I get the summer months to prime and seal.  More often then not I have several minis sitting in a bin that are primed or partially painted that have to wait until the weather it good again.  

Prepaints I will agree most of them do look bad. Wash is sloppy...if they even have a wash.  Eyes are way off center.  Paint is globby because it was put on too thick.  Still the majority of my collection is prepaint.  Also my other hobbies get in the way.  Like writing for my D&D game or making other props, Or.....gulp   W***,  Which is the worst thing in the world.

Crud! We are only on Map4. If it is Map6 that's going to be close to 700k at least.

I we don’t engage in that sort of put-downism here. We encourage and delight in each other’s fanboy/girling. So feel free to geek out all you want ^_^

 

yeah, I was thinking they’re twinsies!

 

Just to be very clear, the ten item limit applies in the pledge manager.

I wonder if it will be like last time, where it's a limit of ten per order...  I'd like to stockpile bases this go-around, including sizes I figure "I'll never use".  I've had a few bases only orders in the past because of thinking such thoughts...

ugh.. metal models. that's so 1980s/1990s :P

 

Sanjay :P 

 

Corvus Belli, and even Reaper would beg to differ - a number of Bones V minis were released in metal long before the Kickstarter fulfilled.   And Infinity models are only available in metal, same as everything from Oathsworn. 

 

Resin minis are gorgeous though.  Love my 28mm Dictator B...

The above boat will be almost 2x as long as the Dreadmere rowboat (which is displayed below for those who don't have it)

Do you think a 25mm base would fit on the deck between the cabin and the rail?

 

That'd be pretty awesome.

      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 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.
