they hinted at something cool (and if i recall correctly, to proper D&D scale) in part 3 of greek.  I'm betting on a Titan. (which i need for the campaign I DM - one of my players normally uses the form of a titan ) :)

i'm concerned it's actually just the minotaur, but i admit i don't know what is and isn't correctly sized, including Reaper's older miniotaurs. Is the new, larger miniotaur that will be in that expansion more appropriately sized to what it should be?

Past minotaurs have been appropriately large-sized for D&D.

 

I don't know what size minotaurs are in other systems.

 

Pics from ReaperCon make the new minotaur look larger than necessary, but not so large as to cross over into huge-sized territory.

I am really wondering if we will even see any Chronoscope, Steampunk or even just general sci-fi. Over 50 stretch goals or add-ons have been announced without anything in these genres.

That's why I rolled my pledge back to minimum - I needed a way to show my frustration with the situation. I'll bump it back up to my budget as soon as they reveal anything sci-fi.

I only am committed to $20 right now, I can use that much for paint if all else fails.

@TheAuldGrump we need a pic of your "hula" spider!

Currently with Sam - she borrowed it for a side game that she is writing then running.

 

Along with the female fire giant from WizKids - I had them at my game for the Razor Coast - in an area that they are nowhere near, at the moment. Sam is copying an encounter I ran in the Regency Space game. Sans the adult situations that were also a part of the encounter. One of the female fire giants got very friendly with Jon's barbarian after the trial. (And was run by Jon's wife, Julie. ::): It helped that the challenge was something that the heroes could reasonably be accepted to succeed at - in this case a bout of wrestling between Jon's Enlarged barbarian and the female fire giant. Julie had the giant steal his loincloth during the fight.)

 

The ukulele came from a party supply store, part of a Hawaiian themed pack. (And was the only reason I got the package - the rest was, well, kinda cheesy.) 

 

The grass skirt was made from green stuff - I first tried using fake hair, but it just looked awful as the grass skirt. Not entirely happy with the green stuff, but it was much better than the fake Hallowe'en hair painted green. <_< )

 

It was an idea - it was, however, not a good idea. I still think it might work, but not with whatever polyester fiber was used on the fake hair - coated with diluted Modge Podge, then painted green, it looked like fake hair covered in diluted Modge Podge, and painted green.

I am picturing that mounted on the walls of a super villain organization.

 

Maybe replace the disk with a light source.

 

Jenny would HATE that! :lol:

ARACHNID, World's Fifth Largest Evil Organization.

 

I would suggest using an LED panel for the disk. ::):

I feel like those gobbos deserve a close up.

Ravnica PC race Minos are medium size. Pretty sure Minos in Pf are large as well.

Maybe killer clams do. Maybe fantasy clams do. Who knows, seems like a very minor nitpick though . Clams are often show with pearls. 

 

Maybe this carnivorous fantasy species makes them to lure in prey like foolish treasure seeking divers. is amazing what made up species can explain away 

 

*** David Attenborough Voice***

 

And here in the unexplored dark depths of the Ocean we see this giant clam.

Just recently we discovered that this magnificent crustacean uses the tip of it's tongue to lure it's prey closer.

It's tongue resembles a glowing pearl, in this deep darkness a light like that will attract anything.

We know so little of this planet's Oceans!

 

It seems we're in luck! Look at that large fish, it's being attracted by the light!

As it comes closer it stretches out an arm to...wait...arm?

What is this? It can't be!

Mermaids are...real? Astonishing!

What a discovery!

 

Oh no! The Clam closes, the poor creature is trapped!

Look how it wriggles in agony!

Wait, there comes another one, a female of the species I presume, just look at those magnificent...ehhh..eyes!

This one seems to carry some sort of trident, she is trying to free her mate.

What a sight, we're extremely lucky to be able to witness this!

The Deep is full of unknown lifeforms, this must be the discovery of the century!

 

Wait, what have we here?

Do you see that? Just behind the Clam there seems to be a faint glow, it's getting brighter, something is getting closer!

Something big!

It's almost like a giant eye!

Never before has mankind encountered such a creature, look at that!

Those crablike limbs, that huge eye, what is it?

 

Excuse me, I have just been informed by the Captain that for our own safety the submersible will need to resurface.

Till next time!

      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.
