I really hope that Chronoscope expansion has a cohesive theme. 

I'd probably settle for three themes, one per part. Post apocalyptic, mythos, and Christmas(?).

Sooooo glad to see these as their own set!   The base tying them all together is nice.  Not too sure about the translucent blue they'll be cast in but eh. 

 

I'm not a fan of painting female minis, especially mostly naked ones, but for these I'll definitely have to make an exception, doubly so since I can use them to keep hubby in line, mwa ha ha ha ha!

Do you think that the Chronoscope holdouts will jump in now to contribute toward the unlock, or do you think that will they wait until after the set unlocks and reveals a cohesive theme?

I wasn't holding out myself, but it all depends on whether it's a scattershot or properly themed and cohesive set as to whether or not I get it. 

 

Or they could stuff a cyber dragon into it and I'll probably wind up buying two....

YAY!!! Sirens!! Translucent aqua is a surprise but I think it'll be cool! 

I dig the translucent, especially since they're on that big base! They can each get painted as usual, but leaving the water clear will be pretty great.

Pretty much the same.  Love the sculpts and their personality, which is what makes them a buy for me.  Well, once I've the cash to add them in, that is.

I'm still planning on waiting until everything's finalized before I shell out the money. After B4 Chronoscope I don't expect I'll be alone.

I like the translucent blue and may be getting two sets. One to leave them clear (water elementals) and one to paint them opaque and leave just the water clear (more the traditional siren).

Yaaassss sirens as their own set. I'm probably going to pass on Brinewater (I live the sculpts but prefer metal for PC and NPC minis), so I was really worried that these were going to be tacked on to Brinewind. And the translucent will be fun

My interpretation was only the base was translucent.  hmm.

not sure about the sirens, but if i get them, would use everything i learned from my dragon turtle resin diorama/base and use resin to make a proper ocean base for them :)

That's what I was wondering too.  It's not clear the way it's written.

I'm holding out to see what is in it.

I was on the fence about these (love your work, but don't need them) until I saw that they were going to be in the translucent aqua with a base. That pushed them over the edge to a must buy for me.

I might settle for three themes, depending on what they are, and what's in each one.  If one of the themes is like Brinewind part 2, in that I feel that's enough value for me by itself to get, then yes. 

A Christmas theme would be hard pressed to show that kind of value for me, though.

      Microworld Games (which I run) has their first Kickstarter ever live:
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/microworld-games/6mm-fantasy-crusader-kingdom/
       

       

       

       

       
      All stretch goals have been met, with a bit less than 2 weeks to go.  I know 6mm fantasy is a bit of a niche within a niche, but thought I would post for anyone interested in element-based mass battle wargaming.  I'm hoping the KS platform enables me to push out more interesting projects a bit quicker.

      OMG!  Jason Weibe helped create the new Dwarven line being released on Kickstarter by Tomb Guardians!  These minis look so cool and they are cheap!  I haven't seen anyone post about this yet but here is the link.  It starts tomorrow morning.  They also said Bobby Jackson and Gene Van Horne created there monsters in the set.  Cant wait.   I purchased there Amazons and they were fantastic!  I posted some pics.  Im assuming the Fire Demon and add ons are in Resin.
