Ghouls! Ghouls that aren't ugly and hulking and rotten! Ghouls that look like the ones I throw at my players! [Yoink]




Also I'm in for Chronoscope. The first one wasn't hitting for me (suddenly, random Santa :blink:) but the next two bits are muuuuch better :B):

This mad dash at the end is driving me insane! Still so much I would like to see, of things teased at reaper con! I saw in an above spreadsheet the dragons are gargantuan sized (4 inch base), is that the case? Could have sworn they were on 3 inch bases... This alone may make me need to collect the set of Chromatics in PM...

The Bases ARE 3" diameter circles (generally).  However, these dragons hang over the edges so much that they will pass for Gargantuan compared to any other D&D dragon mini's that you find produced on behalf of WotC.  I plan to mount all of them on 100mm bases, off-center so as to minimize their low-elevation overhang.


The Ghoul Pit looks awesome.  I'm always up for more standing stones.  And a stone sacrificial altar?  Yes! (I know there is an earlier bones sacrificial altar with runes; that one is also awesome).


The Ghouls, to me, will easily pass for hags.  I'll probably paint them as Green Hags.  The Ghoul Queen could be a Night Hag, or some fiendish/half-fiend something (half-fiend hag, tiefling, etc.)


I'm not really into modern stuff (though I have run some d20 Modern in the past), but I do play in a Call of Cthulhu game.  I'm actually impressed with Chronoscope enough that I might just end up throwing one on in the PM next summer.  Terminators, other war bots, post apoc heroes, and pulp/steampunk... I'm in this KS for D&D mini's... But I think painting a few of those steam punk mini's would be fun just for the sake of painting them.

They are on 3" bases, but they are so much bigger than their bases I think it's easy to qualify them as Gargantuan in D&D terms.

The expansion Shadows of RavenHome sounds interesting.


I wish!  Still, this Ravenloft-lover has a feeling he will REALLY like the Ravenhome encounter...

.. Wlp. My want list hit $500 ... and we're still short a dragon. I'm in trouble...


Mine is over $1,000 (it is my first Kickstarter, though)

Speaking of a life-long Ravenloft fan… yes. Yes it does.


Right there with ya.


Random other thought.  I really thing the Mega-Mutant that was previewed the other day on Twitch could fairly easily pass as a Goliath for D&D.  Just cut/file off the tire tread of his shoulder pad (or whatever it is), and fill any mechanical screw heads (like in the hammer) with GreenStuff and I think he'd pass pretty well with the right paint job.


Random thought 2:  There is some Walking Dead skirmish game that people have been loving the last year or two.  The Chronoscope part 2 seems like a purposeful targeting at that market.

So I won one of the Reaper Giveaways from last weeks Live episode and I still haven't received an email back from Justin saying my shipping details were received and now they've moved on to this weeks giveaway winners...does anyone know if they normally respond to the emails or is the week long delay just because of the insanity of the kickstarter? I'm just worried it will fall through the cracks and I won't get sent my goodies haha

      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! 🙂

      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.
