Just eyeballing it, but those bases look the same size as the Zombie bases, so I'm assuming 1 inch.  Maybe a smidge over.

 

They just clarified that the BBQ grill will just be ONE grill, they were just showing you what all you can do with the lid.

 

Next month the Bones 4 Roc will hit retail release, FYI.

A smidge over I can live with.  Just no 40mm.  (Not that I wouldnt buy them but,I want them for gaming also...)

The henchmen look nice. 
It looks like the lantern can be easily repositioned (it should be behind his head so that he doesn't blind himself). Not so much for the torch.

I’m a bit disappointed that this obviously wip sculpt shown at ReaperCon never made it into the kickstarter.

I was expecting him to appear in the hirelings group.

I just opened that image in Gimp and using a pixel measuring tool, the black base of the zombie on the right (presumably a 1" base) is 57 pixels wide.  The base of the kneeling succubus just to the left of the zombie is 63 pixels wide.  So that's a touch over 1.1" (or 27.63 mm).  Certainly doable, but I'd prefer they were just 25mm.

 

If you cut the bottom tier of stairs off the standing one, that second step was ~52 pixels (0.91 inches, or 22.8mm).  Not exactly the most practical solution, but it's certainly a possibility.

Now that the renders are showing, I’ll need a hireling/henchman set...when we have time to play here, it’s usually original D&D (0e...) rather than anything more recent.

The raft is a reference to "Tales of the Black Freighter," a comic book that one of the characters reads in the Watchmen.

 

To explain a bit further, cos i love it so, in the comic the raft serves as a metaphor for the villain's machivellian scheme - as a shipwrecked mariner races to save his home from pirates by building a raft from the bloated corpses of his drowned shipmates, so the villain of the main story tries to save the world on the backs of murdered innocents (and one 'raw shark'). In the process, both become monsters.

 

The raft is the standout piece of the whole KS for me.

They showed off the renders of the Henchmen and Hirelings, sculpted by Bobby Jackson.  The renders are only ~90% finished, FYI.  All the images were actually spinning video renders, so I tried to grab at least a front and back image.

10-foot pole wielder:

So is that Sir Forscale's cousin on his mother's side, Sir Datwide? Or on his father's side, Sir Mandasuhglee?

I think that 10' pole may actually be longer than 10', judging by the distance based on scale. Looks almost like 15' as a ballpark estimate.

 

Not sure if I'll get the hirelings or not. Several of them could be solid NPC/townfolk figures, and a couple might be functional for PCs, too. My players almost never actually have hirelings, so it's not something I've ever really needed.

So a heroic 10' pole?

This is for the times they say "I wouldn't touch that with a ten foot pole."  So you get at 15' pole!

      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.
