That female statue is just begging for a fire effect in that brazier she's holding.

Or water, since she’s also holding a jug. 
 

 

Here’s hoping for sheep or rams to go with the cyclops!

At first I read this as attempting to paint the miniature *with* wine.

Years ago I ran a campaign that the characters were the kids of our retired epic adventurers. I wrote up new fumble tables etc that were mostly humorous and/or embarrassing. Fumble with a sword, cut your own belt, your pants fall down. Crit fail a spell, turn bright pink, or only can speak in rhymes, or get trapped in a giant soap bubble... silly stuff like that.

 

Really want to get those kid adventurers and paint them!

Im glad the storm giant is separate.  That is a relief.  Now we just need scale pics.  Preferably him compared to Wizkids Storm Giants...

 

From what i understand, the wizkids prepainted storm giant is between 6-7 inches tall. The GF9 official collectors series resin storm giant is: about 5.5 inches tall to top of head (without the curve thing on the helmet) and without base.  He would be taller but his legs are spread wider in a battle stance. if standing straight, he's around 6 inches or a bit more. With the head frill thing, he's near 7 inches tall. 

 

This bones one is 4.72 inches.

Looks like we're on track for a start of Reaper's day unlock. Things are slowing down a bit now. I expect they'll pick up again in the European morning, and then really ramp up as the east coast wakes up and finds itself close to the goal.

Is Reaper going to continue the post KS ordering they have done the first 4 KS? Some stuff I am iffy on and wanting to see the physical models before pledging. Plus it would allow more time for me to get funds.

Yes, that's the plan.

sooo excited and happy, have to share it with other model collectors:

 

this arrived today (Bones argent, and Forgeworld dread saurian for scale):


IMG_20191007_221257.jpg

 

Its Tony McVey's Gojirasaurus (a 1998 kit he made and sold).  his depiction of godzilla, if godzilla was a real life dinosaur  32 inches long... Tony McVey is an ILM artist and currently the lead artist on The Mandalorian (disney+ upcoming show).  worked on return of the jedi, prequels, etc. super rare :) :) :)   funny, people look for this thing for years.  Took about a month from when i first saw the image of it in august, to track one down :) :) :) heheh

 

Tomorrow, pick up a ton of simple green to remove the paint from it and try to break the joins so i can redo it cleaner, etc.

 

Regarding the kickstarter: i hope the next goal gets unlocked in the morning (like 8-10 hours from now, and we can do another unlock during the day).  seems to have slowed again after a spike at the reveal of the Greek expansion.

 

Regards,


Sanjay

I just saw that Kicktraq now has enough data to project a final value for the campaign of $3.3 - $5.5M.  It says experimental, but does anyone know how accurate it tends to be?  If this thing goes to $5.5M, Reaper’s going to need about 40 more stretch goals than they’ve ever needed before.

      Story
      Echoes of Camelot: Arthurian Legends is a project that will expand our 75mm resin miniature range with new and exciting models based on the Matter of Britan, particularly around the figure of King Arthur and his Knights. We have many cool surprises prepared should you help us bring this dream to life.
      These miniatures have been sculpted and painted here at the Big Child Creatives studio with the collaboration of some of the most talented miniature artists out there. And what is more, they will be manufactured by our own talented team of resin casting experts. This allows us to monitor the process closely to ensure the best quality in the market and a timely delivery.
      We have learned a lot from our previous campaigns, and we want to put all this experience to good use, repeating everything we did right, improving upon it, and correcting our past mistakes. We invite you to join us in this journey of discovery throughout the Matter of Britain and its amazing cast of unique characters.
      This campaign is a journey of discovery, full of surprises such as custom bits to make your miniatures even more striking than they already are. Some of these kits will be Kickstarter exclusive, so those of you who choose to support us will be able to proudly show it through unique miniatures, even more full of life and character than our regular releases.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.
