. Even if I have no interest in those three at all.  Here's hoping for a few male ones unlocking later on down the road ^_^

 

Uh, unless I'm missing something, the one on the left is male.  Elf Ranger?

Looking again, that's one androgenous looking ranger.  Facial features looked rather female to me on initial glance. 

 

Still no real interest in that one though, but I'm definitely glad to see busts be brought out, hopefully in Bones Black.

They all look like Elves to me, the one of the left appears as a male to me.

I'm glad to see more busts, but these are not for me, I'm not into Elves.

The Maiden Bust was first seen in the wild at ReaperCon 2018 in resin. It's nice. I think I have at least one. Haven't done a search yet, but I believe that @Guindyloo has done one of these.

 

Yep: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85080-01629-maiden-bust/&tab=comments#comment-1801516

Because a few backers (like myself) decided to toss the finger to the pledgetrolls.

But was crossed? Then it counts...just be careful, you may get something awful smeared in a gaming/painting finger!

I admit to have been hoping for more dragon busts =P but this will appeal to people who are not me I suspect

So a bust with a dragon doesn't count? lol

While they appeal to me, I would like to see some general Monster busts.  Reaper has some awesome and characterful monsters that it would be cool to see in this scale.

I really like the Maiden.  Seems odd they are not all the same scale though.

As @TripleH mentioned, she's a previous resin release that's being re-released  I actually appreciate that they're indicating a variety of scales.  1:10 busts are a little on the huge size for busts.

not that I don't have an appreciation for busts of all sizes.

 It's funny cause there's folks in the KS comments wanting BIGGER ones.  FWIW 1/10 is a pretty standard scale for busts these days.  Scale 75 went with 1/12 for theirs but folk like Nuts Planet, Mirico, etc. are generally 1/10 scale.  Bombshell went BIG with the Wanda Whitestar bust at 1/5 scale and his Morihilda is 1/8.

True, but even he will tell you that he wanted to make a splash and make them ginormous.  

I'm also baffled by people wanting them bigger.

I know it can be hard to tell, but pretty sure the Elf is male. In the absence of a Glorious Dwarven Beard, Cute Halfling Sideburns, or a Orcish Fu Manchu, It can be tricky, I understand. :D

This is about as macho as it gets for elves, and to me, the androgyny is still somewhat there. Kind of a Samurai aesthetic, really, which I suppose is appropriate for "the most ancient and civilized of peoples".

I paint busts, and I have a feeling that most people don't realise how big a 1/10 or 1/12 scale actually is.

I see you're a gentleman of culture... Back in topic there are 30-32 potential unlocks more (hopefully) any guess in the goodies?

2 feet = 24 inches, so at 1/10 it would be 2.4 inches, correct?

I agree - 2.5-3" sounds small on paper, but once you get it in front of you... Not that I've purchased any busts yet, but still.  I have several minis that seemed smaller in the pics and when assembled the question is where to put it on your desk... 

 

It's like guys new to rc cars, wondering why there's such a large price gap between 1/12 and 1/10 scale.. (or even 1/8)

With 10 days left, my hope for a nice Chronoscope Expansion is fading and I don't believe it is going to happen.

It might not, but its too early to give up hope!

      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.
