The undead dude with 4 swords is... an undead dude with 4 swords.

 

That's kind of why I'm disappointed with this expansion. Asian myths are full of weird with a capital 'WEIRD' monsters that you won't find anywhere else. Miniatures of those would be unique and interesting. Instead we get an expansion of dudes in armor: dinosaurs in armor, orcs in armor, undead dudes in armor, and a sprinkling of interesting monsters scattered like a rare spice. Sure it's different armor but I've got a crate full of dudes in armor right there, all types of armor from reed armor to padded armor to samurai lamellar armor to plate armor to chainmail bikinis to turtle shells strapped on. 

 

Ah, well, it's a lesson in managing expectations, I guess. I should always expect dudes in armor. I'd save a lot of disappointment that way.

 

agreed.  actual oriental based monsters, characters would be good.  

 

Lets see how the next expansions are...

They showed off a 12 inch 3d print of Ardent as well. Best to presume that nothing is finalized until it's absolutely finalized.

And they did point out size was subject to change.

Bones 5 mini shown on Reaper Toolbox Stream.  I am not big on the underwater stuff, but I do like the looks of this figure.1430415201_Annotation2019-10-02133907.png.8339ff4e223b2217030ba6440d6ee7fc.png

I had fun watching Kevin sculpt this fella.  I still have lunch with him several times a week and have been able to see a handful of things be completed.

Thankful that they put the Daimyo stuff in its own expansion.  It's neat, but it's not something I have a use for.  Love the dungeon dwellers.  Still kicking myself about not getting Dreadmere last time.

I  just hope the mammoth's wings dont droop. Nothing worse that a mammoth with wing droop. 

 

ah man that's the worst, isn't it? They never look right when they droop, mammoth wings should always be outstretched proudly

So here's a thought. Doing a multi hour stream probably takes some point form notes of things to cover. Why can't there be a quick wrap up post with a comprehensible (no personal shorthand) point form here's what's in the video post. It shouldn't take more than a handful of minutes and would benefit everyone.

      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.
