Also always a chance that Kit is on vacation/swamped with UK orders/sick...

Not to mention his ongoing work with the new website.

I thought the number of backers was between 18,000 and 19,000 ?

 

Where did you get 250K?

 

 

Lol... some days I just shouldn't get out of bed. :wacko:   For some unknown brain hiccup reason, I was looking at dollar total not backer total.  You are correct, and the backer total difference between 4 and 5 was only 2,387.

I’ve had days like that...

It'd be awesome if the pledge manager went live right before PAX. That would be good timing for Reaper's sake due to the giant pile of gamers all in one spot who will be talking about it. And it's 3 weeks away, which gives Kickstarter time to get off their butts.

Conan is slightly bigger than Sir Forscale. The base is 30mm,  Female base is 50mm, the male's base is 76mm.

 

The new storm giant is considerably larger than the old.

Here’s a picture from the pre-launch thread that was taken from one of the Reaper Live shows.

I think combine with what @Maledrakh shared it should hopefully give you an idea of size.

Oookeiii.... That's a big guy....

Sigh... Ok, I think im digging me'own grave here but... Will not(if we keep a consistent scale) that guy being just about right to be a Titan? I admit that im hazzy on the details (size, new editions, all that jazz) but the giants IIRC were roughly the height of 3 tall guys stacked and that guy is More or less four guys so....

 

Edit: just checked, nope, im dead wrong a Titan will be at least 10 guys stacked.... Or the somesuch.... Daaaamnnnn...

If you don’t play anything official, they can be whatever size you want.

These figures vary between games and editions too. Reaper gives their best effort, but they are never going to win the "right size" game.

 

I think he looks cool, so I want one. If I actually paint it that will be awesome. If I also get it into a game: bonus!

Well, yes that is true on both fronts, I myself rarely played "by the book" sizes if any (dm just said "you find a bloke the size of -random landmark/object- and it wants trouble" it's just that the whole size/scale thing has been in my mind as of recently

True, but with the success of 5e (which I do not play) it would be in Reapers interest to have their minis work well with 5e.  Plus with giants bigger usually is more dramatic.

I feel somewhat guilty, but I will not be ordering the Chronoscope  after calling for sci-fi. The problem is that I don't need zombies, most of the first section I already have. The third section I really, really like but it is not worth the $50 for that one section and I don't feel like having to sell the other stuff. So I will probably run the $50 in other stuff here and wait for the third section to release at retail.

No reason to feel guilty about it.

Especially when you plan on buying stuff in retail later.

 

I have thought about it and I will not go for the expansion either, I will buy a few of those trailers in retail though and the explorers types and maybe more.

Chronoscope is going to be the first thing I grab when the PM goes live. I wailed and moaned that Reaper needed to put some focus into Chronoscope and dwarfed if they didn't give it the old college try. It's far from perfect (Looking at you, Santa. All I want for Christmas is for you to be an old car.), but they put forth the effort this time an I find that encouraging. I will express that by giving them my money for it first.

      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.
