I feel like Reaper should release an illustrated instructional phamplet for us:  “How to Casually Introduce a 36” long Pirate Ship into the Covnersation at your Game Group.”  

 

 

I think that we’d all benefit. ::):

 

I'm DMing the Savage Tide adventure path with some of the same people.  I don't need an excuse to bring up a pirate ship, I've been taunting them with dreams of having their own sailing vessel for ages....

Only if they do it in two versions then, we need at least one generic ship to be able to function as a Navy/Merchant/Pirate Ship.

While I love Undead it would be too specific in translucent.

It might put me off buying it.

 

As mentioned above, translucent Bones and opaque Bones are the same plastic, but the latter has an opacifier added and the former doesn't. If you prime opaque, you won't see any difference. (Wizkids figures with tranlucent parts often do this, btw.)

By my reckoning, if they are to do translucent at all,  it would be best in clear translucent and not green or any other colour.

Clear gives the most flexibility:  you can stain it to any colour you want and not be limited by the green of the material, and of course you can choose to paint it normally.

 

Preach it, Brother! ::D:

 

I can make clear into anything, but purple (for instance) can only be opaque or something close to purple on the color wheel unless it has a very low dye density.

Fungal companion? Is that the gamer who never bathes or brush their teeth?

 

Yes. He passes out hand towels at Gencon.

It would be interesting to have one of each type from the same mold to see if the opacifier chemical or compound has any perceivable effect on density, flexibility, texture, or paint acceptance.

I'm hoping that today is a good day for people to be talking about Bones 5 at their D&D game or hobby shop.  I know I expect to bring up that pirate ship later today.  ::D:

 

I asked my group last week.  1 doesn't paint,  2 can't afford it, and the 4th guy has bought in to 1-5 but doesn't really paint either.  We're going to try a paint night again, next week. Unless everyone has an excuse, again.  After that I give up. 

 

Surprised the social media goal hasn't been reached yet. Especially as it adds to core.

I just realized that a 3-foot ship won't come close to fitting in the spray booth I use for airbrushing. That could prove to be a bit of a challenge for me.

So, if they stick to the average of 14 unlocks per map, with five maps confirmed, we're probably going to get less than twenty more unlocks. Since I'm fairly confident that the pledged amount will probably double in the next three weeks, that seems stretched pretty thin. I'm placing my bet on a mysterious sixth map making an appearance, and upping the unlocks to upwards of thirty more, most of which will come in the last two or three days of the KS.

My gaming group is finally meeting today, first session since July. 2 people are already in the Kickstarter. Probably going to hear a lot about 3 foot pirate ships tonight ::P:

Given how this Kickstarter has gone so far, Reaper would be missing a big opportunity if they weren’t planning for things to go farther than they initially expected.  I wouldn’t be at all surprised if there wasn’t new maps being drawn, as well as new concept art at this time.  I don’t think they want to run out of goals at any point.  As long as we have money to spend I think they will produce goals for us to spend it on.

Note: If you recognize some of those minis - YOU ARE OLD!

Didn't really recognize the minis, but instantly recognized the terrain kit...  I have a box of each of those sitting in the closet, waiting for paint...

Gragg Elfslayer social update: approximately 3750.

Really surprising they didn't include this figure in the update, instead they just said "we haven't reached it yet".

And that's why I'm planning on buying two of those portable booths...  Errr, two only gives you 33" of work space.  Uh oh.

Take a look at 77450 and 77068 (for example; all the Invisible Adventurers are also available in both clear and white). I didn't notice much if any difference between the two versions of the figure.

And don't forget, folks. General consensus I have seen for a "tabletop standard" paint job is 3 colors, plus a level of base finish. Colored sand and white glue are the easiest for that, IMO. Not saying you can't or shouldn't strive for more, this is just where I see the line being drawn between Painted, Unpainted, Primed, and partially painted minis. Just my two cents, your mileage may vary.

You know those occasional threads where someone asks if they should "assemble, then paint" or "paint, then assemble".

 

This just took it to the next level.

Yeah, that one is a can of worms, with strong proponents on both sides. Me, I sit firmly in the middle, as my real concern is final results rather than consistent process.

      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.

      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.
