Some people do care to watch, but due to responsibilities they may not be able to take the time to do so. Thank you very much for the new thread, it's very helpful!


Yes forgive me, I should have worded that differently. >.<
I will try my best to do notes for the show as best I can, as it is a lot of multi-tasking keeping up with chat, talking/listening, notes and so forth. I might even just save it for Friday morning, and go watch the episode again on the V.O.D's Or just link the V.O.D with a summary of what happened.

I'm down to 'huhn, do I REALLY want that' on my list; mostly for niche stuff like the Daimyo expansion and Chronoscope, where there's stuff I am not very interested in mixed in with stuff I do want/have a use for.

I did get a pair of Bigby's Expressive Single Digit though, because that appeals to my twisted sense of humour. >.>

Daimyo, I would have got if not for the dino-people. I don't mind the existing ones, just not those. I figured, eh I wanna support Reaper in retail sales, so that expansion will be one I'll look for. That & the Chronoscope one as well. There is a bunch of things in that one I'll look for in retail as well, like the big minis. Love the Cthulhu like creature, along with the other mini on the same page.

Here Pezler, I have lowered the resolution to an acceptable level.

I have  a love hate relationship with chronoscope expansions.
They lack of focus always makes me not get them. I feel they would work better if it was broken down into encounters. 

Lets go through the 3 parts of the Chronoscope expansion and my thoughts on it.

Part 1: Victorian Steampunk and Pulp: 

  • I absolutely love the figures. I really  enjoy the variety of non combat pose and the detailed dresses. Santa doesn't really fit, but its Santa.


Part 2: Post apocalypse and Lovecraft:

  • First off, modern zombies. A good addition to the Reaper catalogue. But I am not interested in them, I would have preferred if they were victorian or more of a village folk (for modern settings it was part of a village festival or a folk group).
  • Like the civilians, not really interested in the military ones. Still have no real use for them and the sculpts don't jump out to me (apart from the one that reminds me of Shaggy and the farmer)
  • Super mutants, not really my jam. That one pose drawing his pistole is nice. 
  • Trailer, I don't do modern. Still there are a couple of fun ways this can be used. A good addition to the reaper catalogue.
  • Lovecraft monsters: the devil one is nice. I really like it. The tentacles have a nice scenic base that works for both modern and victorian. But tentacle blob is not really my cup of tea.

Part 3: Robots

  • Don't like the half skeletons and half blocks design. But that is a personal preference.
  • Large robots: prefer the more fluid design, but still not my cup of tea.

... are those peanut butter cups on Buglips's back?

 

 

While I now can't unsee that, I think the intent is gold coins with ridged edges.  ::):

Treasure is treasure.  Delicious, delicious treasure.

The original idea was to try and make a compromise between "maybe they are coins" and "but maybe they are paint lids".  If it was necessary to choose one or the other, I said go with coins because while paint pots would be funnier it would be best to make it a useful piece for people who are not in on the joke.  So they are theoretically coins, theoretically paint pot lids, and theoretically peanut butter cups. Good loot either way, tbh.

Could also sand down the ridges and make them cheese wheels.

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).

      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.
