I'm. I'm not getting core so I guess retail it is.

 

There is the possibility that the core set will be broken up near the end like.it has for the past 4 kickstarters and you can get it that way

 

The troll was also in a emailed update if you would prefer seeing a picture of it outside the core image

On the core image they deleted it, but on the one sent to mail, the troll is stepping on a human soldier. 

Do you think it will be that big? 

 

The unfortunate human soldier was a victim of a sleep-deprived concept artist being funny. One of the various streams announced the final troll will not have a stepped-on dude.

 

The three headed troll with Ed, Ron, and Dave heads is currently a similarly funny piece of sleep-deprived concept art and will NOT be in the kickstarter. Again, various streams have announced he might, MIGHT I SAY, be made into metal.

 

In order to maintain enough detail for 3 heads to look like 3 proper heads, I do believe the 3-headed troll will be rather on the large side.

I thought there was some rule about lotteries for Canadians requiring a skill component as well, though perhaps that doesn't apply for lotteries not run in Canada or by a Canadian company.

 

Canada only, and usually took the form of a simple math equation.  It was always perfunctory.  I haven't seen one in forever, most junk food promotions having gone digital, so I don't even know if it's still a thing.  But if you want your free bag of chips it'll be:

 

12-4+5

x 14-6

Exactly, Metal is king, plastic is the price point of the 80's-90's.

For me resin is king. while metal and resin can both do the detail, larger thinner parts cause issues for the molds (someone from reaper explained it at a long post on the paizo forums a few years back) for metal due to it needing higher heat which damages the molds.  also larger things become very heavy and metal is just annoying to convert due to harder to saw/drill through.  

 

after resin, i prefer hard detailed plastic (Games WOrkshop style and apparently the new stuff from GF9 collector series - their larger kits coming in october/november this year will be GW style plastic sprues).  Then bones. then finally metal. 

 

i used to like metal models. then i started converting and doing larger pieces and metal just became too annoying.  that said, most of the stuff i get, doenst come in metal anyways so it stopped becoming an issue :)

Is this like that viral math problem recently, where the grouping is ambiguous just to mess with us?

 

As a recent transplant to Canada, the only one I've seen was closer to "1+1+1 = ?"... ::P:

I'm hoping the pulp encounter is a byakhee chasing a car full of investigators. One driving, one holding a lantern so a third can read from a tome, and the fourth shooting or swinging a weapon at the monster.

reminds me the rpg "Beyond the Supernatural" 

 

:)

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
