Since you sculpted the Catoblepas, I'm curious how you pronounce it.  Did you get any information about it other than its appearance?

 

I would say it as Cah-tow-blee-pahs.

Tough to run a multi-level-spanning game in a two hour slot, but I'd give it a shot! Maybe just run one or two encounters per level, really power through a series of episodes...*ponder ponder percolate*

 

 

@TaleSpinner, I'm sad even you will have to wait so long for your own sculpts, but I'm not surprised. Gotta say, though, you and @Rainbow Sculptor are knocking it out of the park! That catoblepas fills a long-empty niche (with STYLE! That face is ahhhhhhhsome!), and the child adventurers are really great. There's a new after-school organization starting up nearby, and I'm thinking about offering to run a weekly kid's game for them. These would be awesome for that!

 

Thank you.  Wish I could take credit, but Ron came to me about it and gave me awesome Izzy art to work from.  Of course I jumped at the chance, loving the old school monsters as I do.  I really liked Izzy's fresh take.  The skin effects were mine, being a bit hippo and a bit Indian rhino, and a bit fantasy.  This was the fist time I got real, finished Izzy art to work from and it was fantastic! (The Chaos Toads were 5 min sketches she did for me on a piece of scrap paper, which were awesome, but she only had 15 min to spare on them so I had to fill in a lot more of the gaps.)

 This.  It was originally coined by Pliny the Elder in ancient Rome.  I honestly don't know how he would have pronounced it.

I'm gonna have to bug Izzy next year & see the original. Love her take on critters & such.

I suspect the original would have been more like Kah-tah-bleh-pahs, since it comes from "καταβλέπω, (katablépō)". But by the time we reach later Gygaxian, it's unclear what the preferred pronunciation would have been. :B):

Just posted a link on reddit.  Hopefully that helps pull in some more backers so we get a bunch more unlocks tonight!

 

This is fun!

 

Oh, and just cracked $1.05M so the Yokai option is now unlocked.

 

 

Nevermind - of course someone had already posted it on reddit earlier when the KS launched.  I was surprised it wasn’t still a “hot” post in r/minipainting.

 

This is still fun though!  :rolleyes:

Can I surmise that your version might be painted a bit chaotically?

Well, ZBrush just froze, I guess it must be telling me to take a break and exercise.

 

I had to kill my CAD software at work twice last week in one day. Something about trying to regenerate 13,465 models that it was also trying to download from the server first. Homie don't play that.

 

CTRL-ALT-DEL for that sweet, sweet kill task click.

 

Sometimes, it's just so satisfying.

I have to wonder how many backers are stores who don't want to wait for retail?  There sure seemed to be quite a few of them flipping sets on EBay after B4 ended...

The one near me sells (sold) stuff  retail at approximately the same amount Reaper sold extra stock. I'm sad about not seeing any more stuff until tomorrow.  Someone new to the hobby can stock up fast, but I'm not sure yet whether I will add more. Dungeon dwellers I like a few, but there's a lot I don't want or need. But it's pretty close to being worthwhile for the stuff I for sure want. Lots more to see.

He was Roman so someone that took Latin might be able to help.

 

Thank you.  I hate it when I try to sound intellectual and then screw up an important fact. :blush:  I appreciate the correction. ::):

      "Over 1800 Jungle Themed Terrain Pieces Made for the World's Greatest Roleplaying Game, and Others Like it."
       

       
      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
