I really hope Reaper takes their time in its design and have a lot of open communication with the manufacturer so we don’t end up with issues where the manufacturer treats it like manufacturing a toy and not a hobbyist item like they did with Baba Yagas hut.

 

What happened with Baba Yaga's Hut


 

When originally shown, the hut  was intended to be open on the inside with thin walls and a removable roof to allow the inside to be playable space.  
 

Edit:  and yes, like others have mentioned, the legs were planned to come as separate pieces.

They look like the ones from the dark reach xpack, which I love.  The only think I dislike about them is that they all have the same hair style.  I kinda hope there's a part 2 for this kickstarter, I can always use more dark elves.

I forgot about that part.

So what you’re saying is we’re going to need a bigger squid.

The Legion Of Tentacled Species has already made that need known.

They asked for a core add on, they got one. They can now pony up the cash and shut their pie holes.

I wouldn't be surprised if they do one of those updates that shows an upcoming mini but doesn't show the goal amount so they can generate some more interest.

 

But I mean... it should drive some sales anyways, it's adding to the core value.

Hey, the "core is weak" complainers needed their non-fund-driving stretch goal...

yeah but i imagine ppl who want the core already spent $120.  core sets, unless they get brand new people, dont drive more money as its one price for all. same with expansions. just $50 unless ppl dont like part 1 and instead want to see whats in part 2 or 3.  the general add ons help more if they are impressive enough.

Hmm, just noticed something interesting on the Reaper store. The Bones 4 "Not packaged for resale" placeholders have disappeared. Maybe some releases coming down the pipe?

They said on ... yesterdays (?) Twitch stream that they just had a new shipment of Bones mini's arrive.

Those from Bones 1-3 will hit the store as soon as they can get them packaged.  The Bones 4 ones will release in a new wave on November 1st.

Some people could be like me, though, and be on the edge of buying an extra core set.  There's minis I want doubles of.  I know they usually split the core set later down the line but I'm thinking 2 cores might be worth it.

Well, with the Dark Elves bring it up to 131, the cost per mini is 92 cents each. That includes the big figs in there. If you are a fantasy player, wow. Just wow.

That's a true and fair thing to keep in mind.  I'm technically planning to get a 2nd core set, because I'm splitting the first one with a friend.

Though, I'm not going to be able to pledge any more, I don't think.  Today was a very bad, very expensive day... ::(:

Same here.  It's always nice to have a decent sized squad of things such as the Dark Elves, etc.  Or even two separate groupings in case of conflict within the race.

      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.
