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. ::):

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.

      Hi everyone, I wanted to share that we have just launched the third Dunkeldorf Kickstarter! Our last Kickstarter was focusing on "The Prancing Peacock" more or less a full tavern setting. 

      Our new Kickstarter still focuses on the town of Dunkeldorf, but this time it's all about a Brewer "Sven Wentzel" who's also the leader of a ruthless gang of thugs. There's also more focus on the mutants that dwell in the sewers beneath the town. Finally, the third "Faction" for this campaign is Witch Hunters and their Hired Swords who are en route towards Dunkeldorf to root out the mutants they've heard continued rumours about. 

      The Kickstarter can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/kinggames/the-kingpin-of-dunkeldorf - With our last 2 campaigns we unlocked a lot of Stretch Goals and included a bunch of extra free miniatures, accessories and pets and we hope to achieve the same this time! 🙂

      Thanks for your support. This adventure is ready to print at the completion of the Kickstarter.
       
      Our first adventure, Secrets of the World Harvesters, is offered as PWYW during the Kickstarter. Observe the quality and back if it pleases you.

      One of my fellow party members is publishing their first adventure path on KS!
       
      "Lament of The Widow is a tale of thrilling mystery and cosmic horror, spanning over 20 elegantly appointed and thoroughly haunted rooms in the labyrinthine world of Moorehouse, each of which contains the potential for rich rewards, powerful magical items, or painful, agonizing failure. Behind our beautifully illustrated cover, players and Game Masters alike will be thrilled to find over 100 pages of carefully crafted maps, incredible illustrations, and detailed descriptions, as well as a new setting-appropriate background option,  brand new magic items, an update to a classic tabletop monster, and an array of original creatures created just for this setting, all brought to life by our passionate, talented team of artists. Will you brave the perils of the Infinite Manor, unravel its secrets and escape with your lives? Or will you remain forevermore within its halls, trapped in a cycle of suffering and torment without end? The choice is yours...if you have the strength to make it."
       
      It's got some really great art and cool monster concepts! Dalimar is pretty amazingly creative, too - I have 0 doubts it's going to be an awesome adventure.
