Y'know, the more I look at it.... 

 

...The more I want to give the Catoblepas a top hat, a monocle, and a cane.  That's right, for some reason I want to turn a party killing monster into a dapper... Player killing thing... 

 

If you do this, I must insist on the addition of a a bow tie.

No sails or rigging for the ship

 

 

Good, they really are a pain in the neck for playability. 

 

They needed to decide of they were making a model ship, or a piece for gaming; so glad they are leaning towards the gaming side.

My problem with twitch is stuff staying on twitch instead of migrating over to youtube at some point. Getting news from the forum is great and all but work is becoming a thing again. Twitch is blocked at work, youtube is not.

Makes sense.

 

I’d kind of like optional shrouds for aesthetics, but even that is getting ambitious.

Let's see, 4-5 per gun, with at least 32 guns, plus ship rigged with probably 20 topotters per mast, plus marines, officers, carpenters, cook, ... and 20% more for illness and injuries.

 

Call it 250 or so.

 

Frigates were crowded.

 

You might not want to try to fit all of them on the model. ::D:

As many as six men per gun for the larger cannon - with 2 and 6 being the men that hauled on the ropes to bring the cannon back to the gunport after being loaded.

 

My son John was tall and slim,

And he had a leg for every limb.

But now he has no legs at all,

For he lost a race with a cannonball....

If there were little rings or something on the booms (horizontal beams, yeah?) then we could easily attach cloth sails ourselves and make it look half decent.

Well, you can leave it up to the buyer that way if they are dedicated enough to add them.

I'm sure it's entirely coincidence that not ten minutes after I post this youtube happens to contain both yesterday's Reaper Live and today's Bones 5 livestream :ph34r:

So, we're less than $10,000 out now.

I guess we'll DING late at night TX time, or the wee  hours of the morning...

I figured if I wanted rigging and whatnot, I could add it myself. But yeah, I just seems like it would get in the way.

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:

      Apparently it is "full plastic injection" so not the same as their minis. The concept seems interesting, but the preview page is far from finished, so it's hard to get a good grasp on prices (one "Starter Pledge" for $49 is all they currently have listed, along with a $20 add on). The whole magnetized modular wall system looks like it could have potential.

      About
      Digital render of the finished sculpts. In the last six or so years I have played a lot of tabletop games, ranging from Warhammer and Dungeons & Dragons to smaller games like Frostgrave and Relicblade. I have fallen in love with the hobby of painting miniatures and everything surrounding it. A year ago I made plans to give something back and to add something to this hobby community I love so dearly.
      My background in digital game art helped me a lot since I was already familiar with the software to sculpt digitally. So I started working on a few miniatures I would like to produce. Most of them were abandoned in favor of better ideas, but eventually I created this set of three goblins. These goblins are each embodiments of the archetypes found in many of the games I love: the wizard, the fighter and the thief/ranger. 
      I spent the last year figuring out how to cast resin to the standards I saw in the products I enjoy and how to make sure digitally sculpted details translated well to the tabletop scale.
      These three figures are the end result of that progress, but hopefully the start of a lot more.
      I made this Kickstarter to cover the costs of the materials used and shipping, but mostly so I can bring these little goblins to your tabletop :)
      All miniatures will be multiple parts cast in resin and supplied unpainted, with a 25mm gaming base.
      The final resin casts.

      The KS is starting off with bases, and SG's unlock the terrain:

      They drag their feet one in front the other, deliberately, slowly. They  crawl out of their resting grounds. Out of the tombs to the fresh air,  slowly, unrestained. 
      Scylla Models is back presenting you a new range of Villains and Undead monsters for your collection. The models we present you are master casts  white metal (primed white for better result in the pictures), with the only exception of Zuula. She on her Night Terror is our first large monster and we decided to go resin. The results are quite impressive as you might see in the picture. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.
