I have a feeling our club is going to be running a lot of watery games in 2021! :lol:

 

And so many options to start new crews!

The Faun and Satyr would make good Tieflings, IMO.

 

Yes, definitely - I'm going to need at least two sets.

Im still annoyed at no teiflings again....sigh....well maybe in metal..

 

Well at least in metal there's already some really cool tielflings :( I know it's not the  same... 

They should take in consideration that they are now - just as dragonborn - a playable class on D&D 5th ed. I mean, they were before too but with modifiers I guess less people got them. 

If you're interested Dark Sword miniatures released two tielflings this months, although they look horrible IMO.

I'm not seeing it.  Maybe they removed it?

 

Not sure why you can't see it. Still there for me

I think part of the problem was the overly fragmented expansions. It took weeks to see the Greek expansion finished for example.

 

I also feel there's a hard limit on what people are willing to spend and reaper has slightly increased prices from past KS (e.g. core set is $120 instead of $100). Despite there being all this great stuff, I think people are getting less for their dollar. Not to say their KS aren't a great value, because they are, but I for example can't justify spending more than $300 on this so I have to make some tough decisions.

 

Yeah, that price increase matches the premium commanded by Bones minis in the online shop exactly - it seems that Bones customers like the increase in quality that Bones Black adds, but not the extra cost!

 

I definitely feel like Reaper's reached the limits of their backers' ability to fund the project.  That's why I'm suspecting that new backers are the ones who are probably carrying this Kickstarter.  There were a lot of people saying they would sit this Kickstarter out because they had most of what they wanted already, and didn't have the money this time around.  And there were a LOT of backers who wanted in for a dollar now, but didn't want to commit to anything until after the Kickstarter ended, and still more backers who are making excuses not to spend money on expansions, encounters, etc.  I don't know how many of these backers have changed their mind or will before the very end - how much of those sorts of comments was just talk - but I can't help thinking that experienced backers really are spending less this Kickstarter.

I've been away, and was hoping to see 80,000 the last hour. Looks the day has been running around 50,000 an hour. With less than 2 hours to go, 3.3 million?

Currently at about $70K per hour and climbing fast.

And there are the incubi and succubi...

 

There are those two devils that were teased, but for the life of me, I don't see how those would fit into the Kickstarter plan as it stands now at the last few minutes of the campaign.  Maybe next time?

As soon as the Ship was first shown on the twitch stream, I went looking for the last 12 issues of Dungeon Magazine, so I can run the Savage Tide adventure path.  A guy was selling an unread bundle of the last 12 issues of Dungeon Magazine, and the last 12 issues of Dragon Magazine, along with some of the campaign start booklets (for the players).  Came to less than $6.75 per issue, so I felt it was a good deal (due to licensing issues, these issues will never be made into legal PDF copies).

 

That's my Christmas present to myself, I guess.

 

2021 will see my group sailing the High Seas.

Yes, the figures are all mine and the terrain is Bob Ridolfi's.

 

Wow, you are killing it.

      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.
