So the bits and pieces I've picked up point to the Chronoscope Expansion being focused on 1920s/Chtulu sort of stuff? 

If that's true, while it's great for the fans of that sort of stuff, I hope it doesn't mean that there won't be any sci-fi at all. 

They said there was 1 piece that was very pulp.  Apparently an old car.

I love and hate to paint all my miniatures equally.  I sit down every day and curse that I have to paint them, any of them, but then when I don't do it I miss doing it and it wouldn't be any fun to not do it.  I'm like a ship captain who hates the sea.

Well no, I thought that was your personal collection.  I just thought since you do it so much you must be makin money with it too.

oh i used to do commissions on the side for 3 years.  i did a few single pieces or small units (3-4 models to higher quality), but mostly i did army sets/sales. 

 

For example, i would create a decent army and put on ebay, painted to a higher tabletop standard with freehand banners, lots of modifications, etc for a grand or so.  

 

From that, i got bunch of private army commissions.  Same deal - lots of conversions, etc but a higher tablestop standard with more work on monsters/lords.  We're talking 2000-4000 pt armies, but i'd get $4K-$6K for them...

 

then i found, i cant manage that anymore as on ebay ppl want more for less, and for those who request models more as show pieces, there are much better artists than me doing better work for higher than my costs for solo models but not by tons, so instead now, i forward ppl to artists i know who do it as a job or are just much better and do it on the side. that way, i dont feel like im ripping ppl off with my level of quality .  

 

I'd recommend ppl like: matthieu fontaine, jeremy teboul, alan carrasco, matthew cexwish, bohun, Natalya Melnik, etc.  

 

even if its more, that higher price is worth the money for the magic those guys can do.

They've also said that the Chronoscope expansion is going to be fairly focused this time around. 

I guess the question is, is that pulp car in the Chronoscope expansion or not?

@TaleSpinner   Andy, I just wanted to say your goroloth is incredible and I love it.  It's like you reached into my mind and pulled out exactly what I wanted the previous goroloths to look like.  Which, tbh, is probably the best thing you could have pulled out of there.  But in any case, fantastic job!  It's byoootiful!

 

Thanks  :wub:

Dern right it is. Trying to ruin my reputation like that. <_<

 

What reputation?  I mean seriously, we know you; you are an alien life force with awesome power who's attracted to a VERY stinky goblin.  What is left for a reputation to hang on.

There are, like, 40 states we haven't been to yet who don't know nothin.  And if any one of you warns 'em you'll be in for it.

In other ways?? :blink: I'm glad we don't live in the same region of the country.

 

You've never driven in the New Orleans area. I'm a fantastic, patient and understanding saint of a driver by comparison. There are many reasons that Louisiana has the second highest car insurance rate in the country and many of those reasons have defensively made me the driver that I am now.

I think the car and some investigators were supposed to be part of Chronoscope expo.  However, Ron said it so who really knows.

If so, I am going to have to get a new woodburner so I can model bullet holes, etc.

 

Something like this. 20$ on Amazon.

If I were brave enough to trash-talk the Fit, I would first be sure I was right with my estate lawyer, life insurance, and god.  

 

I'm pretty sure the term "Fit" has been deprecated and "seizure" is the preferred term now.

*Sad xenomorph hisses* You say that, but the last time we got results..... and when I threatened to start a riot over a dire vegetable, that got results too. ::P:

I'm just saying, I don't want anybody getting the wrong idea here. Then people start thinking they can just blow you out of an airlock on a whim.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.
