I really hope that Chronoscope expansion has a cohesive theme. 

I'd probably settle for three themes, one per part. Post apocalyptic, mythos, and Christmas(?).

Sooooo glad to see these as their own set!   The base tying them all together is nice.  Not too sure about the translucent blue they'll be cast in but eh. 

 

I'm not a fan of painting female minis, especially mostly naked ones, but for these I'll definitely have to make an exception, doubly so since I can use them to keep hubby in line, mwa ha ha ha ha!

Do you think that the Chronoscope holdouts will jump in now to contribute toward the unlock, or do you think that will they wait until after the set unlocks and reveals a cohesive theme?

I wasn't holding out myself, but it all depends on whether it's a scattershot or properly themed and cohesive set as to whether or not I get it. 

 

Or they could stuff a cyber dragon into it and I'll probably wind up buying two....

Im not a fan of translucents in general, but these are so nice that I will be getting them.

YAY!!! Sirens!! Translucent aqua is a surprise but I think it'll be cool! 

I dig the translucent, especially since they're on that big base! They can each get painted as usual, but leaving the water clear will be pretty great.

Pretty much the same.  Love the sculpts and their personality, which is what makes them a buy for me.  Well, once I've the cash to add them in, that is.

I'm still planning on waiting until everything's finalized before I shell out the money. After B4 Chronoscope I don't expect I'll be alone.

I like the translucent blue and may be getting two sets. One to leave them clear (water elementals) and one to paint them opaque and leave just the water clear (more the traditional siren).

Yaaassss sirens as their own set. I'm probably going to pass on Brinewater (I live the sculpts but prefer metal for PC and NPC minis), so I was really worried that these were going to be tacked on to Brinewind. And the translucent will be fun

My interpretation was only the base was translucent.  hmm.

not sure about the sirens, but if i get them, would use everything i learned from my dragon turtle resin diorama/base and use resin to make a proper ocean base for them :)

That's what I was wondering too.  It's not clear the way it's written.

I'm holding out to see what is in it.

I was on the fence about these (love your work, but don't need them) until I saw that they were going to be in the translucent aqua with a base. That pushed them over the edge to a must buy for me.

I might settle for three themes, depending on what they are, and what's in each one.  If one of the themes is like Brinewind part 2, in that I feel that's enough value for me by itself to get, then yes. 

A Christmas theme would be hard pressed to show that kind of value for me, though.

      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. If you want to know more about  us visit our website.
