I recommend the collected philosophy of Cracker Jack inserts. Very insightful.

 

Jeez, Doug, it's just a hobby.  I wasn't planning to go to actual school.

Well I'm glad there's been updates and images posted. I was worried about nothing happening until Monday.

I'm intrigued by the daimyo goblins and will need to check those out. Probably not enough to get my budget. I might need to double if i want both of the undersea and classical expansions. Or maybe not much more if i don't

If Reaper follows Bones 4 to retail, the expansions would be the first to retail. Just gotta wait till the expansion items you wanted go live. Which is a good way to release really (& not because I didn't get Dreadmere or Darkreach & those were the first two released. ::D:)\

They are in the ones I did get so overall new releases will be sorta ho hum for me. Thou, it'll be nice if I need extras. Thinking I might need anther bear, thou my purchases now are mostly influenced by the AL games I run at the store these days.

I am very impressed by the 3rd part of the Daimyo - despite my intentions its gone from the "wait for retail" category to the "maybe" group. 

I think id spend at least 30 getting just the pieces I want from retail. 

as for the new dragon - it goes straight into the maybe group.  I can't get all the dragons, ill have to pick 1-2 or just possibly 1 if I go with the core.

i suppose that's a point...it's just such a pain to get rid of minis i don't want. I don't have anyone local to trade with, and i don't like selling on ebay. oh wells, i'll have to consider it

Can always jump into a BoGW trade away anything you won't use for things you do.  Plus it's always a great time seeing what everyone else finds and gets excited about.

For those of you asking, here are the renders for the other kids. The polar bear (Tuktu) has already been resized to about twice as big as pictured here.

 

 

Thanks Christine.  That little dragon sculpt is awesome, btw!  People love the big dragons, but I’m happy to see such a cool design for a smaller one that isn’t such a big commitment to paint.

 

Are the big pets (obv not the birds) all on separate integral bases?  That would be great because it would make them all more versatile for game use - familiars “help”ing, scouting, etc. (and more minis!).  The core set graphic seems to show them that way.

i haven't participated in that in years, the last few times i did i actually didn't find anything in the box i wanted and just donated stuff and sent in on, so i've kind of stopped participating :ph34r:

 

i think i'll wait though, i cannot justify the $50 when it's only the dragon i want

Yes, the larger pets will all have separate integral bases. We wanted a variety of pets, some that were attached to the main figure and some that were separate to suit different player needs/wants. Currently the wolf, dragon, polar bear, tiger, and ram are separate figures. The toucan, owl, and ferret are attached.

I'm already concocting character sheets for those kids. I love the diversity of cultures they represent. I think viking-girl is my favorite right now.

 

Just noticed the Knight with the toucan has slashed pants! So good!

Sorry to hear that about the BoGW.  And yea if the dragon is the only thing in that set that calls to you waiting til retail makes sense.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
