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.

      Right now it's just a Notify Me page.
      Not sure when it goes Live, but it's set to let me know.

      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.
