Aaarrgh! Curse you, Reaper! How dare you put out such cool minis! YOU WILL PAY FOR THIS! (Actually, I will pay for this. In for another 50$).

I've been pushing that for a while. If it's clear I can make it any color I want. If it's colored, I can only make it that color or a color I can mix with that color.

 

I understand the desire to use a color (because it makes out of the box play easier), but I strongly prefer clear for all translucents.

 

I'm guessing the pre-colored translucents are so-colored so that they will appeal to non-painters, who simply want to drop them on the table.

 

Painters (most people on the forum) can make something else of it, even when re-coloring the tint isn't an option.

Less than 1800 to go to the next unlock. A little frustrated/disappointed at the news that no scifi/Chrono until map 6. That's 200k at least before one.

 

I have just been over at another site looking at sci-fi terrain.  I think I know where my money is going this month. 

 

Oh, skeletons. Pass. ::(:

I really like the undead pirates but I don't think I need a whole expansion of them. I really hope the otters aren't in the expansion. I hope they are an add on.

I'm reserving judgement until I see more.

 

I truly love Bob's skeletal pirates, but for $50, I need to know what else I'm getting before I decide.

With the ship coming out, I think that at least one section of the Brinewind would need to be regular sailing crew.

I'm in deep for the undead pirates but other stuff could change my mind. Was not into the otters, for example. If I get everything I'm way over budget 300 so far. Just not sure what I'd drop. Probably Greek expansion.

Sooner or later I'll have to bump my pledge.

I am curious about the rest of the set. So I guess we will see. 

THe gem dragon looks awesome.  I'll add it to my list if its clear.

I am pretty sure @Rainbow Sculptor made some deckhands so I am betting we see those in the expansion.

 

To be honest, I am really hoping they don't put a whole bunch of things in here that I super like.....  I am getting close to the top of my budget!

The advantage of a clear ship is windows. Especially if they’re making the fore and aft castles hollow. They won’t have to make different pieces for windows. Or leave blank holes. 
 

I’m down with a ghost ship.

Green works for windows as well - at least very, very old glass windows....

 

Some older glass was saturated with copper sulfate or salts - resulting in windows that get darker green with age.

 

And narrower at the top than the bottom.

 

My mom used to tell me that it was because glass never completely hardens, and over centuries it would flow downwards... But, in reality, it is because glass was blown, then spun, before being flattened out to be cut into diamond shaped panes. It was always thinner at the bottom.

 

Though.... I would love to see some clear freestanding windows for gaming. We have some 3D printed windows that Kristof65 sent us - the number of times that Jon, Duncan, or Chris have had their characters jump through them.... The kids and after school players are more uniform in their tendency to jump through windows - though some of them do open the windows first.

 

At some point I may pick up some UV hardening resin to add 'glass' to those windows.

 

The Auld Grump - bed time!

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
