Yay that means I get to bring out all the corny Menhir jokes at the table again ::P:

 

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

 

As mentioned above, they're mostly variations on one joke but with different set dressing.

 

They're all based on the proper pronunciation of 'Menhir'. 'Men Here'. With gets into the 'there are men here!' obviousness and goes from there.

yep. I have that one.

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 

Right. Which is why I'm buying entirely too much from their site this month. So stoked about the transparent wraith. 

 

Wish I'd been into painting heavily last year, and known about the Ghoulie bag that had a smokey grey wraith/cloak (I have the solid model; will look up the item number if you want).

Haha. It's corny. I like it. 

 

On another translucent mini note, I find it interesting Reaper started casting the bones Shadow Demons in translucent blue, rather than the original purple. I was able to pick up a few of the purples from a secondary vendor after receiving a blue one unexpectedly; purple matches my ink-washing plans better.

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.

 

 

Welp... I'm starting down a deep youtube rabbit hole. Somehow I've missed that channel....

Pro-tip when it's Red's videos: slow down the speed to 85-90% (custom speed settings) and add the CC subtitles.

 

Expect to pause and rewind more than once (even when it's Blue). It's worth it.

Less than $10,000 to pledge goal. 
 

and 56 to backer goal. 

19 more backers, and Bones 2 goes down. Bones 3 already kissed the mat. Next is Bones 4.

Now that Crowley is working, is anybody tracking hourly data? it seems like $10k will still take some time at current rates.

(Not complaining, just curious)

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.....

They want numbers...

 

...I don't want numbers. The numbers will sort themselves out. Being very patient. Tomorrow is fine. Day after? even better.

On an unrelated note: do you guys think I should open my Bones 4 box now?

You might want to at least check to make sure your entire order is there. I at least did that with mine. Like, a month after I got it. 
 

haven't gotten the chance to actually look at the minis and make sure the pieces are all there. But things have been busy.

      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.

      I backed the first Killer Rabbit Kickstarter and really enjoyed the figures.  A follow up one was just announced by Skull and Crown on Facebook:

      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.
