You know, until I saw that picture, the humonguous evil spider mini didn't bother me at all. SHUDDER.

 

If we make ours look like that, Jenny would leave the room every time it was on the table.  :zombie:

Modelling spider-webs without an airbrush is going to be interesting. I'm trying it with the Cave Spider from Bones 4 and a custom base I made up for it. Hoping to get some decent results with dryer sheets, but we'll see.

Maybe.

 

One to paint like that, and one cartoony so Jenny doesn't run from the table. ::P:

 

She had NO problem with Grump's giant Hula Drider.  But my smaller driders gave her the heebie jeebies.

 

Grump's giant Hula Drider managed to be CUTE! <_<

 

We have a lot of Bones driders. Mine are black, Grump's are brown and green.

 

Mine are cave driders, his are wood driders. Mine are EVIL! and want to KILL you. His are friendly and want to TALK to you!

 

Mine are Aberrations, his are Fey.

 

Mine serve a Demon Queen, his dance in the woods.

 

But his little driders skeeved Jenny just as bad as my little driders. It was just his big drider that didn't bother her. Maybe it was the ukelele? Or the fiddle on the other one. Grump's big driders are musicians. Strings.

 

I haven't done one of the big ones yet. I am thinking I will borrow from Kali Ma, and steal the torso from a Marilith demon. Lots of arms and legs, lots of weapons, and lots of poison. Killy, not dancey.

 

I would love to see a Bones Black spider demon/ giant drider.

 

Hint, hint. ::P:

Once Reaper puts together something like this, I'm out. No more. Done. I quit. Finished. Game over, man.(maybe)

Note: Those are NOT epic scale space marines in the picture.

the pic on the left; i saw that massive scene at warhammer world.  for those who dont know, in 40K, its the seige on imperial palace on terra, with Horus, Sanguinius, the Emperor and legions of space marines, many primarchs, etc.

 

that warlord titan is based more on how the artwork and novels depict them.

fe5212125c2bbc34f602dffc59d22843.jpg

 

still my favourite warhammer titan art :)

 

i know FW cant make titans or the insane warmachines to proper scale but really dont like the design of the current FW warlords... 

 

they made the manta; i say should have made em 3 ft tall :P (manta is 3 wide). they know apocalypse players will still transport them :)

 

us warhammer ppl are nuts :)

 

here's other images of that same battle scene:

dryer sheets are good BUT dense.  most spiderwebs, unless you got some insane Arachnaphobia (film) thing going, it wont fit for all webs to look like that.

 

i recommend trying to separate them a bit; keep some areas denser, some areas very light, etc.

 

I'm happy my suggested reference image for spider models and webbing is creeping ppl out :)

The tutorial I was looking at online recommended taking small amounts and stretching them out quite a bit, which was my plan.

We have lot of huge things, which are neat, but IMHO a lot less useful than tiny things, both on the game table and on the painting table.

 

Bones black would be perfect for a set of tiny monsters, familiars or companions, and one set of them could cover soooo many of the most commonly used tiny creatures.

I certainly wouldn't say that :poke: I'm hoping to see how it looks when I'm done, but securing the webs is something I'm not 100% on yet...

you can dip the parts that need to attach, into a solution of water and glue.  just enough to make a few parts sticky.

 

apply it where you want it at the sticking pts, and it should be good. i've done that for small webbing.  BUT its been maybe 15 years since when i did it :) and it was a very small area so may not work as well as you would need.

As I recall, the Bones 1 familiar pack was a top seller.  I'd love to see how much better they could look in Bones Black.

I agree, I'm a bit saturated on the humongous mini front.

The ship might be the exception, but I don't need huge monsters now.

I like some vehicles and boats and terrain stuff though.

 

And the Spider..that's a must, and still a reasonable size, big, but not over the top.

I want it.

Once it gets to the "holy crap that's big" stage, I'm not particular about the sizes.

I'm the same way. Honestly, I'm not really particular about base size in general, but once we get to 3" base of bigger (aka giants and dragons and... other really big things... ) I don't worry too much about it. 

 

Missed the last hour's numbers. I'll get the next one.

I'm still not as excited as I hoped to be.

Could it be that I've become picky?

 

Or it could be that as an avid reaper fan, they've already made everything you yearned for and requested?

I'm still excited, even though I'm not jumping up and down in excitement every time. I'm sure I'm going to spend a lot on this stuff, too.

      Story
        Depending on the amount of orders received for each project, delivery dates might vary. The initial shipment dates indicated are not final, and even though we're committed to giving all our customers the best service we can, sometimes the amount of orders received might make the final shipment date vary compared to our initial estimates. Please keep this possibility in mind before placing your order.
      Regarding both the bundles and the stretch goals described above, no swaps of model of any kind are allowed. Therefore, please don’t ask us to swap any stretch goal with other add-ons or any perk models with other miniatures, because that cannot be done.
      We created something for those who like to not take themselves too seriously, for those who would like to relax while painting - with less details, but by no means not enough of them - for those who love their minis with a side dose of cuteness overload and, finally, for those who might have children to introduce to miniature gaming, by giving all of these people something that players will love (or hate, as the case may be) no matter their age!
      Wait a minute… delivery estimated after only two week after the campaign ends? A Greebo campaign?!
      Oh yes, and here’s why: because we’ve started production already! We’re convinced that we can reach the campaign goal, at the least, and that’s why we started the manufacturing process of everything. Therefore, the second you complete your Pledge Manager (let us remind all of you, if you don’t complete it, there will be no shipment, so do it!) your package will be processed and sent, just like that.
      We want to open and close this campaign in record time, and we’re confident that we can do it!

      Kobolds Vs. Goblins is a game designed, tested, built and played by my son Max and me (You saw him in the video).  The concept was something we came up with for a contest on The Game Crafter using roll & write mechanics.  What we ended up making was a fast and fun game that can be played by people of any age.  It's quick and easy to learn and setup is as easy as opening the box. 
       Max and I decided that people shouldn't be forced to buy our game just to play it.  So, you are free to download the full color print and play version of the game using this link.   FREE PRINT AND PLAY  (including solo mode) You'll need 6 normal D6 dice and something to mark the paper.  (For prototyping, we used clear cubes, but pencil with eraser will work also)
       
       
       






      I'll admit... I have no idea how those of you who share KS from others include all the details and fancy stuff. I clearly didn't do this correctly. Munchkin Metropolis traditionally does woodcrafting, and I've been very satisfied with the quality and production time that's come from my prior interactions with him. Figured I'd try and get the word out about his current KS, which he developed with his son.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      Saw this mentioned in one of my feeds this morning. Looks quite interesting and is already very funded, with a load of stretch goals unlocked
