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

 

Just point out whoever I need to introduce to my children and we'll never speak of it again.

 

In all seriousness and no BS, I've seen a lot of people really excited about the Wolf-Dragon too, so don't focus on the people who don't like it.

oof i imagine they weren't happy

 

i myself am not a fan of the wolf dragon either, but that's more just the wolf part isn't really striking my fancy, detail wise

 

i drew a cow dragon once. It was black and white spotted and ate grass by the acre. It also had four wings, the normal two and a pair of butt wings on its hips because it was so fat

The wolf dragon is fine as a model, I just don't see myself getting super excited about it because if I want to use it I need to either find a statblock to reflavor, or to build a new one just to get it to hit the table..

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.

I was contemplating on doing it on a WAY smaller scale.  Just prepaint some reaper bones and sell them.   Thats the thing though you gotta have the customers, and I dont think I have the talent to do anything fancy.

for some unkown and unfathomable reason, I kind of like the wolf dragon a little bit. 

True, it could use a little refining, but still....

And Christine, I wanted you to know that your Kid Heroes immediately went on my must-have list as well - they have so much personality and style to them, they're really fantastic.

 

Thank you so much! I can't wait to see how people paint them and hear all about their adventures! That was/is a project very special to me.

I'm thinking that Bones 6 needs the same figures as Teen Heroes, Bones 7 needs them as Middle Aged Heroes and Bones 8 needs them as Elderly Heroes.

Adventure Grandpas/Grandmas would be a definite purchase for me.

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

 

So, no... Bad?

 

Yeah, pretty bad.  They got personal. I hope Chris wasn't reading them.

As @Rainbow Sculptor told me after I read a bunch of the Catoblepas comments there, "we're artists, we all have Impostor Syndrome."  She's not wrong.

I was thinking a reskinned Griffon with a dragonborn's breath weapon and dire wolf's Pack Tactics and "knocked prone" feature when they bite?

I hope my comment about your Goroloth didn't come across that way. I really like it and compared it to another model I really enjoy.

 

The Catoblepas is great IMO, I've been looking for a decent model for it for about a year and this is the first one still in print that I'd buy.

I was thinking more of a wargames use as a mount for a goblin chieftain or witch doctor. Kind of like the old orc war-wyvern.

I was also thinking a manticore chimera stat block without the multi head benefit and without the ram's head charge. Either way I don't always like work to fit it in when we already have a huge range of monsters that are in the books but desperately need minis for.

 I think you meant chimera, there.

      Story
      It was the Baron himself who nailed up the poster in Midlam the town square.
      WANTED:  LADY WILDWOOD and sundry associated gang members - For Murder, extortion, petty theft and highway robbery.  REWARD - 10 Gold Coins for Lady Wildwood and 1 Gold Coin per gang member.
      Speculation and rumour was rife!  Who were these new Bandits that were plaguing Midlam?  Who was the mysterious and dangerous Lady Wildwood? It seemed that the town had been under siege, first from Captain Grief's Gang and then the Hobgoblin Rainding Party, and now this gang of merciless women!
      Bounty hunters muttered in dark corners of Inns, looking for information and squads of Town Guard regularly marched out into the surrounding countryside in their pursuit.  
      But still the robberies and raids continued...
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume Two
      A gang of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, lead by the Notorious Lady Wildwood, for all of your fantasy miniature games.
      Waylaid by Bandits Volume One
      You can also, should you wish, include our first bandit gang with your pledge.  Captain Grief's Gang is a series of of eleven 28mm scale bandits, thugs and ruffians, including the original stretch goal 'George the Grind'.  You could then mix and match your bandits or have them as deadly rivals!

      It's only an 11 day  project, so hury up and back.

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
