To be fair I have always thought exactly the same thing looking at Axe-beak/terror birds. 

such a lovely concept  (pre-historic apex predator,  who reigned for 30k + years?)  but it just looks so dumb. 

I just want artists to start making them look like Chocobos.

nope still think they look silly. 

Checked the terror birds on Wikipedia was off by a few decimals: Habitat South America, 68 million - 1.5 million  BC.

I have one from Lost Valley expansion but will never paint it, I should just move it to a give-away box. 

 

As for the greek expansion, went back over the earlier part of the thread - 

a Cerberus was mentioned in the display case at Reapercon,  and a Hippogriff (not sure if hippogriff is really greek) 

everything else we have seen.  

I think this expansion is more of stuff to pick up in retail (bronze golem is a must-have for me) 

- similar to the Dayaimo expansion & its gate and dragon. 

 

The Giants are good, but I am learning they are not my fav things to paint. 

I have unfinished Frost and Fire Giants on my desk right now.   Frost Giant is part of my goals for this month, im 3 hrs in,  and I keep getting distracted.

I'm looking at that Hercules figure and thinking that looks a lot like a greek fellow I used to work with. Big beard, curly hair, barrel chested. Put him in a lion skin and he could have been the model for that piece. For me, I'm not going to have any problems imagining that mini as a greek hero. For my money that's a great addition to the set.

He also looks not unlike Nigel Green from Jason & the Argonauts, which may be the intention.

If you've played Final Fantasy Tactics: War of the Lions, you'd know that chocobos are anything but friendly. They're the most dangerous predators in the game...

Just because one is a dangerous, vicious predator doesn’t mean they aren’t still friendly. I mean, I think bears are friendly, but they’d still eat me.

I did not originally read the section you quoted, so I thought you were still talking about chocobos... And I was CONFUSED.

They guy on the left looks like he is TOTALLY into bearded dudes...

 

That aside, I've heard it mentioned by the guys on Twitch that if certain conditions are met they will be  giving away a full set  of paints.  I missed the details, anyone else hear that and know the specifics?

 

Thanks.

Giving away to someone on Twitch, or giving away as in being part of the Core?

      Came across this on Kickstarter.
      It's a solo journaling RPG (A new to me concept), that just sounds rather interesting.
       
      The Kickstarter itself is for the Roomlands expansion but the original Colostle book is also available.

      Interesting Kickstarter for resin minis based on the Mork Borg setting (Nothing something I've heard of, but I barely know anything about RPGs):-
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/westfaliaminiatures/mork-borg-miniatures
       
      Also not a company I've heard of before, but they do seem to have a pretty solid track record.
       

       
      What is it about this week and Kickstarters for weird minis? On top of this one there's Coven launching on Saturday too, I'm supposed to be getting out of this whole Kickstarting malarkey!
