   It has really been impressive seeing how Reaper's Facebook page has just exploded with membership in the past couple years.  And actually, it's amazing how the miniatures hobby in general has blossomed on Facebook.  Reaper's Forum is one of the last miniatures forums I actually follow anymore, as I get most of my hobby news, information, and discussion on Facebook these days.

 

 

$15,000 to goal now!

 

 

 

This really comes as a surprise. Here I was, convinced Facebook was dead. Maybe it is, just not for the demographics of Reaper? 

 

 

    Well, the Reaper Facebook page has 15,932 people who have joined and are following it, and 24,728 who simply "Like" it,  so there is definitely a demographic of Reaper fan who thinks Facebook is just fine.  Overall there is quite an active miniatures presence on Facebook.  Most every manufacturer of anything miniatures related has a page; figures, terrain ,rules, clubs, etc.  I'm currently following 24 different Miniatures hobby facebook pages; everything from Cats & Wargames, to Trash-bash Bits, to Vintage Lead.

I like that there are this many dragons. I only backed KS 4, and that one was notoriously low on dragons.

 

They all seem to be on the more managable side sizewise as well. The bigger ones seem to go on 3 inch bases (adult dragon in D&D 5e) so they're scary boss monsters, but not world ending cataclysmic encounters. The two in the core set and the one in DD seem to be even smaller, making them perfect for lower level adventures that still want to feature a dragon.

 

I suppose.

 

The big set of 5 dragons do seem to all be perched on 3" terrain pieces, but they also all massively overhang those bases. I haven't fully decided which ones I'm getting, but I suspect I will be placing them on 4" bases. Possibly even 5" for some of them.

What was incorrect about it?

I was trying to say exactly what everyone “correcting” me was saying. I just picked different words. 

 

Kroas did not state whether he had ever pledged any money or not.

 

I don’t get it. 

I understood what you meant. I was confused at the "corrections" too, but I guess it wasn't as clear as I'd thought it was...

I didn't realize ppl try to get enough of models for d&d to not use counters until bones.  And the prepainted stuff.  All dms I know do it via countered and fewer Painted ones

My background as a miniatures wargamer (40k) makes me prefer to have accurate miniatures whenever I can. I've substituted others, and even used cardstock to print up standees when I haven't been able to get a miniature I've wanted, but I can see that others don't necessarily care as much as I do about the mini matching the monster.

Oh I also played Warhammer. I just don't like to paint similar models. Hehe

I used to use DDM prepainted miniatures back in the day. Now, I barely ever open those drawers. I should see if I can sell them online, honestly...

That's what I did years ago after Bones 1. I found that getting rid of the prepainted stuff gave me more incentive to paint what I did have and to relearn the joys of tabletop and tabletop+ painting for my game table. I'm currently working on my 93rd miniature that I've painted this year. My goal was 100 figs this year and I should surpass that nicely.

I saw a chart regarding people playing D&D - the numbers have grown drastically in the last few years. 5e has gotten a bunch more people. It was like 2018 had 4x the number of Player's Handbook purchases as 2017, or something nuts along those lines. Get more people into roleplaying games, and you get more people who want figures for said games. This is a darn good way to get a lot of figures for games.

That might also be due to the fact that many PHBs needed replacing...

Updated comparison pic.  As you can see, the previewed and upcoming Pathfinder Battles Storm Giant is... Underwhelming.

 

1333556600_StormGiantsPFB5KSDND.thumb.JPG.369e6fcf3a3963e441911050c97fae06.JPG

 

For relative point of comparison, that same D&D 5e Storm Giant sculpt, and King Hekaton, were also released in the Assault of the Giants premium game, sized to Large (on 2" bases).  That previewed PFB Storm Giant is less than a quarter inch taller than the Large-sized Hekaton mini from the board game.

This is a size comparison I could live with.  Its not perfect but they are close enough.  I would rather he was a bit taller than the Storm giant (not counting the helmet

Hopefully we can get some sir forscale pics to confirm.

I love this dragon.  I have been waiting for someone to do a dragon in a pose with the wings furled.  Most dragon sculpts have the wings fully or partially extended.  This one is fantastic and on my MUST list.

 

 

 

im a little bit the reverse haha. i like to paint complicated body patterns and the way he poses means his body is going to be unseen. I guess i'll have to do a fancy wing pattern instead on him =P

Just a friendly reminder, animated images aren't allowed on the forum. Which is really a shame, cause there are SO MANY GOOD ONES OUT THERE THAT I WANT TO USE!!
