@Ratmaster2000, is that from "Jason and the Argonauts"?

Clash of the Titans from the 80's (not that poor excuse they released recently). Harryhausen pulled off awesome stuff without CGI. Wish I had found a shot were Perseus was fighting the cerebus.

The preview of the cerberus definitely looked like it could use a bit more time in the oven. It's not bad, but lots of real estate that could be explored with textures.

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.

 

This makes super sad. The art you and other sculptors create bring joy (and sometimes terror, as a proper encounter should). Sometimes that joy isn't shared publicly, but it's there. 

 

Since I started art-ing, I've gotten a lot more careful about saying why I personally don't like a thing, rather than attacking the thing. It's a little piece of the artist's spirit, and needs to be treated accordingly.

Have we discussed what the plural of "catoblepas" is?  Or what a group of them would be called?

 

Doug beat me to it. I was going to guess Catoblepodes. 

 

Either that or "RUN AWAAAAAY!" which has the advantage of being easier to pronounce.

They also mentioned that there are more "encounter" bundles planned. A mixture of terrain and creatures to inspire encounters in TTRPGs

 

*covers wallet's ears* SSSHHHH, don't scare the poor thing! It's already been frightened enough! 

 

Huzzah!

No, not at all.  I like constructive criticism; its the best way to improve.  I've been a tech writer for 30 years; I can handle critique. I figure if 50% of the people like something I did I've done a good job. 

 

It's when they decide to attack the person instead of stating what they don't like that wears on one. I think the comment that really bit this time was the one where they asked if the dragon wolf and the catoblepas were make on take your kid to work day.  Ouch.

Ok, now that's just >heavily redacted profanity<. Seriously, I love the Wolf Dragon, and Catoblepas isn't my thing, but it's still a good sculpt. Ignore them some people are just toxic. I had a fledgling YT channel, pretty much gave it up, but every once in awhile an old vid gets a comment about how badly I suck, and so far, 100% of the time, when I go look at their channel, there's no vids on their channel. So forget about the haters.

I try hard not to publicly complain about sculpts that don’t appeal to me. It is enough that I quietly choose not to buy or paint them.

 

i don’t always succeed, and I hope the negative comments I do make are more in the form of specific critique, rather than general dismissal.

 

You should all feel free to call me on it when I slip.

They updated the core set image, and the Dungeon Dwellers image, finally putting in the forgotten 321 and the "work in progress" 345:

Troll 315 of the Dungeon Dwellers also somehow got lost from his pack brothers in the core set (205-206)

 

I'm still calculating if I'm getting the Core and the DD. Core seems likely, I like a lot of the stretch goals especially. As many others have stated, I also like DD for the concept and it has great figures, but maybe too many adventurers or stuff I already have. The goblins and kobolds go neatly with the KS 4 ones, but I got extras of those kobolds and just painted 24 goblins. The mounted goblins are super cool though, so are the Orcs. But again, I just painted a lot of Orcs and I'm not sure those would go with them. The treasure dragon and the plague doctors are also nice as is the female halfling.

I'm lucky insofar as I only got two or three of the minis in the DD expansion during Reaper's giveaways, so it's not the end of the world if I back it. I'm still a bit on the fence about it, though.

 

I may wind up getting two of each siege engine, though. I haven't really used siege engines in the past, but part of that is because I didn't have them.

:angry:::(::unsure:

I had to pull Kevin away from them one day this week.  It wasn't pretty in there and he was fairly growly all of lunch.

It stinks when people have to try to out-do themselves on insulting the art work that a piece is by attacking the sculptor who created it.  

I don't enjoy it when it spills over here as well as it has more than once.  

 

Please remember to be kind to the artist.  Express your opinion without the attacks.

      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.

      OMG!  Jason Weibe helped create the new Dwarven line being released on Kickstarter by Tomb Guardians!  These minis look so cool and they are cheap!  I haven't seen anyone post about this yet but here is the link.  It starts tomorrow morning.  They also said Bobby Jackson and Gene Van Horne created there monsters in the set.  Cant wait.   I purchased there Amazons and they were fantastic!  I posted some pics.  Im assuming the Fire Demon and add ons are in Resin.
