We've never seen him without his helmet...just saying.

For all we know, Sir Forscale is a legendary hero, when he dies another loyal Knight is chosen to fulfill his role.

All in secrecy of course to maintain the legend of him being immortal.

It's considered an honour to be chosen, eventhough it means a certain death.

 

I had painted up Sir Hue Forscale as a brilliantly-created construct by yours truly.

Ugh.

 

Between Pingo's daughter and Grumpy I have the theme from The Mighty Hercules stuck in my head.

 

And I NEVER SAW the show!

This, I saw.

 

 

You need to watch all of them! That way you get to see the most annoying character, Newton. "Herc! Herc!" ::P:

Is it just me, or does everyone else see faces in the runes as well?

I think the object is to get word out about the KS.  Big prize tell your friends, all of them. Some might watch the stream and pledge.  The key is to keep promoting Bones 5. 

 

 

No, the paint set is for the twitch subscriber goal.  While this is tangentially related to the kickstarter, the paint prize itself is for that specific goal and Reaper Justin mentioned the open window for entries specifically to allow viewers from any time zone to get the word and enter.  The problem arises when this prize goes up, for an extended period, with no qualifications except that somebody A:  Be a twitch user and B: show up long enough to type "#free".  With $1500+ of free stuff (actually probably closer to $2000), no qualifications, and an open window that large there is a significant chance it will attract people with no interest in the kickstarter, or the stream, or even the hobby at all to show up and enter.  This is, particularly, a problem because the paint set was a lure to get people to work towards this goal to unlock this reward - and should the winner pool get grossly inflated by entrants who had nothing to do with reaching the goal, or even care that it existed at all, this reduces the chances of every person who DID work to achieve the goal - a fact that I imagine would make a lot of said regular participants pretty damn salty about the whole thing.  

 

I should note here that I'm not planning to even enter for the giveaway, on the grounds that I'm already freshly supplied with lots of paint and thus while it's a nice package it's not as useful to me as it might be to another entrant.  I don't need incentive to promote Reaper, I do it of my own free will because they've been exceptionally good to me.  I note this so it's clear I'm not pointing out the above in order to advance my own odds and self-interest.  This is not a dragon figure or a pack of pathfinder paints.  This is the whole paint line - and that's going to be a lot more attractive, in terms of effort v risk, for somebody who might only want it in order to hock it on eBay.

How many could there possibly be?

 

Mostly one but with different set dressings.

I keep missing the details in Twitch.  What exactly do we have to do to qualify for an entry?  I'm a relatively new painter and would like to throw my name in the hat for a chance at a ton of paints.

This kickstarter needs more translucent purple. 

 

Not the Kickstarter, but if you make a $40 order at reaper this month, you get a free Ghoulie bag which has a translucent purple female wraith in it.

Examples, please.  I often have menhirs in my game, so...

 

I'm half watching Monday's Twitch stream on YouTube, and they released the concept art for the 15k backer reward that will be added to the core set. It IS a three headed troll, but it is not the joke one with Dave's, Ron's, & Ed's faces. (They DID show concept art for the joke troll over the weekend, and said Monday that it will be cast in metal eventually).

 

Here's the real 15k backer mini:

Sorry for the quality; I was watching on the Smart TV, so just took a photo of the screen.

Show up and type "#free" at the appointed time.  On Thursdays (and today, in about an hour) there are regular shows with giveaways.  Show up at any time while it's live before the end draw and type "#free".  That's it, all you gotta do.  

 

This is usually a good system, and I like that it's not limited to subscribers only.  For the big paint set, they haven't officially announced the plan - but presuming it is an announced window then when they say its from X time to Y time then show up and enter "#free" and you're in.  Good luck, and if you win 'em I hope you enjoy 'em!

I just always want more translucent in these things. you can always paint over to make it solid, but you can't make solid become translucent

hoping it's something that would stay in production or at least have a pretty sizeable production run and not something very limited in availability.....

      Hi All!
      I happened to come across this project and instantly got sunk into the world of Obsidia.  I thought I would share it here with all the Reaper folks! 
      I'm sorry for bumping my own post a few times.  After backing this project, I learned that these are first time game creators and they were turned down by some high end famous reviewers at the very last minute due to the COVID situation... Which, in my opinion, is super lame!  I don't see how you cannot do a review unless you actually got the COVID!  I hope that this post gets Obsidia to more people which would bring many hours of fun and enjoyable play!
       
      "A dark fantasy tabletop game with spell casting & area control.  The fate of the colony is at stakes; build your empire & rule the realm!"
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/joshbeck/obsidia
       
      1-4 PLAYERS, 90 MINUTES
      Players take turns exploring the dark realm of Obsidia by placing terrain tiles to create a dynamic and treacherous landscape. They'll send travelers from their home colonies out to found new towns, battling any enemy players or creatures in their path. Players will also cast spells unique to their colony class in order to gain the advantage. When all of Obsidia’s terrain has been discovered, the class controlling the most towns wins the game.

      This is a new project from Heroforge for precolored or prepainted custom minis. It also has an option for those with 3D printers to buy a pack of 10 of their custom minis as STL files.

        My name is Bruno and I recently decided to use my (few) graphic skills to design my own waterslide transfers, as I could not manage to get the details on my miniatures right. Especially the parchment, scrolls and purity seals never quite looked as good as I wanted. After sharing some of my work on Reddit and Instagram, I discovered many more miniature hobbyist had this same issue, which lead me to this kickstarter! Besides sharing my own designs, these transfers will be screen printed by industry leading professionals to the highest quality possible.    The first sheet The finished product will be an A5 (210x148 mm) transfer sheet printed in 3 colors: White, Black and Red. The sheet will have hundreds of different designs to give you the most flexibility possible when personalising your mini's. I will regularly add new designs to the sheet, taking into account the backers feedback, until the sheet is full.                      Now while this seems geared to Warhammer 40K at first glance there is going to be a lot that's of more general interest, how many minis have you got with open books, parchments etc that just don't look great when you try and do it yourself?
       
      seems well worth a go, and not bad price wise (if you've ever tried to make your own waterslide stuff)

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!
