Well done!

I wish sirens were already out. I intend to have a siren encounter at some point in the upcoming future. I need to make sure that our ranger bangs a walrus. He's the only one who has been interested in getting lucky. Obvious target to mess with - sirens lure him to the walrus ladies... the walruses get funky.

 

Are you playing in the "Disenchantment" universe?

Less than $30,000 now to the next goal.   That might be a hard reach for a Sunday...maybe a Monday morning unlock?

Probably, IMO. But I have been pleasantly surprised before.

... the Colossal Red dragon (which they actually made on the wrong-size 8" base... It should be 6" to properly fit the game rules of the time)..

Actually, Colossal is base size 6" +. Anything larger than 6" is also "Colossal" so the 8" square base for the great wyrm red isn't outside the rules. It's just not as clearly spelled out. But it's why a lot of Reaper's biggest monster minis wind up on larger bases when I'm done with them, too.

Once it gets to the "holy crap that's big" stage, I'm not particular about the sizes.

Once Reaper puts together something like this, I'm out. No more. Done. I quit. Finished. Game over, man.(maybe)

Note: Those are NOT epic scale space marines in the picture.

So here's the text from the update.  I hadn't realized this beauty was done by @Rainbow Sculptor!   I hope they're offering a choice and not a random...the wording seems vague to me.

 

"At the same time, if we can get 5,000 social media engagements, we'll be adding this Gem Dragon by Christine Van Patten to the Core Set! The Gem Dragon sits on a 2" round base and will come in a translucent color (undetermined at this time) OR in translucent clear."

 

 

And here's some background text for the Brinewind revenants...

And another @Rainbow Sculptor treasure was hidden at the bottom of the update:

Well, just discovered there's a whole thread for these Siren/Water Nymph/Nereid figures by @Rainbow Sculptorhttps://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/88552-nereids/&

Boooooooobies!

https://www.wargamestournaments.com/product/round-bases/  they cut bases and have even larger than 150.

 

GW has 160 but gw is very overpriced.  i like their bases though.  i use rectangular bases (so squares, etc) so i made a rubber mold of their largest rectangular bases and pour resin to make my own.  

 

if you dont care about the style of round bases, message me. i can check - i should have various sizes of mierce, GW, etc round bases.   can just send them.  

 

i really like the new bones spider.  i think its look is even better than the arachnarok BUT of course, due to the high detail plastic and multipart, the detail in the arachnarok wont be met with bones, even bones black.  I think my preference now is: Gol Gul, reaper bones, arachnarok.

 

if ppl want to get an idea of a high end job on a spider, including adding hairs to its legs and webs, check this out (not my work):

heres a tutorial on how to do the webs that he put up:

the hairs are fake eye lashes.

You know, until I saw that picture, the humonguous evil spider mini didn't bother me at all. SHUDDER.

 

If we make ours look like that, Jenny would leave the room every time it was on the table.  :zombie:

      Archon Studio (LOAD, Vanguard of War, Chronicle X) are branching into modular terrain. The project is now Live:
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1915792245/1614419087?ref=6j5c5t&token=15b18208
       
      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.
