That’s how I’m sculpting her (though some of the ropes will be a part of her), but it is not possible to know how China will choose to recut the model, so no guarantees. 

 

 

 

Yes, that should work. The timbers on the far end of the long bar are a bit rough, but they don’t extend much past the post. 

 

 

@GHarris:  Love the cockatrice set. Nice pixel pushing there!

 

Thank you sir! Your mermaid bar is looking fantastic, were there any other goodies in the Kickstarter that you worked on that I missed?

For the first time ever, I'm getting out of bones under $500; probably closer to $350 actually.

 

I'd love the dragons, but can't justify them; several sets are also redundant with what I have, and there really isn't much point to display pieces if you don't have somewhere to display them

I missed the last few hours at the end, which is sad. It looks like a lot of cool stuff was added in the closing moments, including a bunch of things that would probably have gotten me to pledge a little higher.

 

Glad to have them available though.

Some of the scales/sizes in fan favorites are hard to make out.

I absolutely love it.

 

My one complaint is that I can't have it now.

I thought you guys might like a closer shot of the Cockatrice mini encounter that I worked on! I'm glad I got new pictures in on time. I had a lot of fun doing these guys! The Cockatrices were based on some excellent Izzy artwork, the nest was Ron's suggestion, and I thought it would be fun to include a little egg thief! 

 

It amuses me to think that the Halfling left behind the other treasures because, to him, the giant egg for second breakfast WAS the treasure! I didn't sculpt him specifically as a "statue" because I thought I would leave it to the painter to decide if he made his escape or not...

 

I hope you all enjoy them!

... is it wrong that I want to paint those cockatrices up like Fierys from Labyrinth? They have a very Henson studio vibe to them for some reason.

So my list (not including what my friend wants):


- all 5 main chromatic dragons

- Goroloth

- Gem Dragon (TBD - may remove)

- Greek Odyssey

- Storm Giant

- Dark Depths

- Arakoth

- Constructs (split from core)

- Monsters (split from core)

- Living Dead (split from core)

- Yog-Sothoth

- Fan Favourites (TBD - may remove, or keep 2 models and sell the rest)

- Treasure Golem

- Mounted Wraiths

- Overgourd

- Kaiju Chaos (just to resell)

 

I think i can prob cover half my cost or a bit more with the stuff i dont want and will sell, so not bad.  My total with all above... $334 cut it in half, pretty good :)
 

i must say kinda surprised at how small the demogorgon is.  100 mm... its like 3.5 inches. 

 

i wonder what we missed out on.

Love the cockatrices so much! They would make great familiars. Really tempting to get Fan Favorites, we were out gaming with friends all day so I didn't see them until after the KS closed.

 

We are in for... a lot for our first KS. Probably:

-Core

-All 5 gargantuan dragons

-Shadow dragon

-Greek Odyssey

-Dungeon Dwellers

-Mammoth (2)

-Goroloth

-Dragonfolk

-Spider encounter

-Arakoth

-extra Gem Dragon

-Succubi/Incubi

 

And probably more. Hubby just got a big unexpected bonus from work and we're tempted to buy the Nautical Campaign in Several Boxes Pack (ship, Dark Depths [I love the sea giant so much and it's nearly worth $50 itself], Brinewind, Brinewind extras, sirens)... Maybe in 2 years we'll want to stage our own remix of our mediocre Adventurers' League GM's version of Ghosts of Saltmarsh.

Just now finally catching up with today’s going ons.

Had to work today so didn’t catch much of it Live.

 

I think my list of wants will be quite big, but I’ll have to see what my finances allow for through the next year the pledge manager is open.

Is it possible to have 2 fit roughly I to a rectangular gle or are there any weird edges on the unseen side?

I was wondering the exact same thing as I was wanting two of this expansion.

And that’s the answer I was hoping for too. Such a great looking bar.

 

To bring it up to modern times, all it would need are a couple of surfboards leaning against one end. ::):

Great character you’ve given your sculpts.

 

I find I’m really enjoying all these little miniature vignettes that Reaper is having various sculptors do.

Well, I guess that one guy got his demon chickens...

 

I guess I'll have to remember that the REALLY squeaky wheels get the grease next time. I figured having Ron the art director reply and say he liked my idea was a good sign, and I could lay off proposing it thereafter. 

 

Next time I'll be more persistent. (But not chimera-spamming update lurker annoying...)

 

My buy list is massive (this is my first Kickstarter ever), but I'll post it in the morning.

When the "Underwater Expansion" first popped up I thought to myself "oh great, everybody hates underwater content, that's a waste". Fast forward till now, I ended up pledging for Dark Depths, Brinewind, Brinewind Extras, and the bloody ship. Before this is all over I'll probably add fan favorites to the basket, might depend on how well that finished not-demogorgon looks like.

 

This was my first Kickstarter (Bones or otherwise), and it's been actually fun to follow this through, cheers to everyone!

You can get started now with the existing underwater figures, like the Kraken or the Dragon Turtle, and a swarm of fishmen, so that your adventurers are ready to put to sea as soon as the ship arrives...

You made it purple, but that's not even a joke, is it?  :lol:

 

It's a very likely scenario!

Best news I heard today, thank you.

 

I think the Egyptian could be saved for B6, have an entire expansion or theme around that.

 

I will get the Desert of the Dead Mummy Army next year, so I'm fine with the Reaper Egyptian stuff coming a little later.

      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.
