So on $4K-6K  What was the profit margin on a job like that?

well its hard to say.  since they had to send me the models OR they paid for me to buy them.  hourly...not much, but since i painted while watching tv with the wife,  i didnt use it in place of wwatching tv or something.  

 

but yeah, its not worth it hourly.   it was more like, wife and i wanted to do more expensive vacations than we normally would be able to afford, so for that year, ok, i'll try to do a few armies and generate the cash for it.  Or i want a higher end gaming PC, so let me paint for a few months for it, etc.

 

it was a decent injection of cash, but not worth it from an hourly POV and i certainly dont have the talent or customer base to do it fulltime, especially not compared to my actual fulltime job.

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. 

I agree, some scifi would be downright lovely!

No, it's definitely the driver. Just picture the Penguin when he took over driving the Batmobile in Batman Returns - literally me when I'm driving home from work every day.

Yup.  Definitely glad you're way over there *flails arms, and points at random directions*

I'm hoping that there is something to use the siege equipment on later on in the kickstarter.

 

 

I'd love to see a big keep and wall set similar to what MBA did several years ago, but affordable.

 

I'd actually like that about 150% more than I would a pirate ship, and I would LOOOOVE a pirate ship.

We've seen how well that goes. You came back, and we lost Ripley ::D:

 

I mean "lost"? Really? That's what happens to you when you torch an innocent mother's eggs with a flamethrower.

Ron seemed to indicate that there was a 1930s car, Pulp investigators, and a smaller Lovecraftian monster that all went together in some sort of”grouping”.

*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 afraid that I'm going to be the one who has to figure out how to sculpt it. :unsure:

I dont think reaper should make those.  Trying to compete with Dwarven Forge wouldnt be good I think.  

Not to mention those of use who use Hirst Arts or those who sculpt foam.

Did you read the KS comments on the Wolf-Dragon? 

One of the general rules of life that I try to follow is "Never Read The Comments"

 

So, no... Bad?

My son took one look at those hands in spell effects 2, and wondered if we could get an extra set so we could convert one to be giving the finger.

      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.
