something i drew many many many years ago   seems fitting

I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but als

the ROc is softer than i'd like, but it at least has a decent coverage of detail. Argent has huge areas of just blank plastic that is going to be a struggle to paint decently

 

The D&D 3.5 artwork that Argent seems heavily inspired by has very large smooth wings. I think that was intentional in the design. His wings shouldn't be heavily detailed in regards to texture.

what could reaper do to cause a frenzy and a similar rush like in the last days, during the 2nd week?

They will try to pace things to 3 or so unlocks per day is my guess.
If they need a boost they have many planned expansions so they can just drop one of those as a surprise stretch goal to get people excited and pledging in a lull

Add all the really cool stuff that was seen in various previews some of us are waiting for. I for one am honestly not super keen on yet another Bones core set (after four of them, I kind of don't really need more 'generic personalities'), but I'm very much waiting for some of the presumed add-ons that have been teased to make their appearance in the KS.

What browser are you using?  This is a known issue with Microsoft Edge and IE.  Chrome works with KS fine.

 

Edit: Sorry, my eye jumped on the different browsers thing.

I was able to get on with Mozilla Firefox without problem yesterday, evidently some systems are having more problems than others.

 

I've tried with Firefox and Chromium. And the Android app.

I had a lot of difficulty pledging, tried different PCs, tried my phone app.  You might want to try poking at your Kickstarter settings, change your password or payment information, just to see if it's an error with your account that's not getting reported.  Eventually I got through but it was never clear to me why.  Maybe clear caches, cookies, reboot, etc.

 

Tried to clear cache and cookies. Updated web browser. Tried with and without a VPN connection. Removed re-added credit card. Nothing seems to work at the moment :/

I fought with this all day yesterday.  On a Windows 7 (yea I know) laptop at work, I could not get a pledge to go through using Firefox ESR 60.9, Chrome, or an old IE 11 browser to work.  I should have been in Wave 1, but after a couple hours of this, finally just gave up.  I started to wonder if it was my credit card that was the issue but the only Kickstarter message I got was a red box saying try again.  At no point did I ever get a pledge confirmation email or get to the kickstarter webpage stating that you have successfully made a pledge.

 

What finally worked for me was updating chrome to the latest version, and removing any externsions (including ublock origin) and then using a different credit card.  That finally resulted in the pledge going through and getting the Kickstarter page confirming you have pledged (and the email also).  I was so fustrated with the whole deal I just pledged the $1.00 for Wave 9.

 

Interestingly, when I got home I checked my bank/credit card account and it had 14 pending $0.00 charges on my credit card from Kickstarter.  Thankfully today, those were all removed.  I like Reaper but really didnt want to pledge for 14 core sets :)

 

 

 

I'm feeling kind of miffed with the whole situation. Feels like I've tried it all. Hopefully Kickstarter support will find something.

they could be better than they are right now though. Doens't have to be super heavy texture, but look at something like Narthrax, there's still a little bit there on the wing membrane

 

ultimately, he's the most disappointing thing for me from bones 4, and i've decided to never go in for something that is just concept art or a unfinished render

How about actually keeping the Kickstarter page updated so people could see what  was unlocked, coming up, and included with what sets! 

 

I don't remember them ever being so causal about keeping everything current on the main Kickstarter page.

Have you called your bank?  If multiple attempts were made they could have KS blocked maybe?

Yeah, I have 2 Argents. I'm definitely a bit disappointed. Not so much in the size but definitely missing a lot of detail. Haven't painted them. The other dragons in bones 4 were great

I was disappointed, BUT because he was TOO big:) Was gonna do a bookend set!

don't forget hsi detail. He has very soft details, and over all looks unfinished to me.

I regret pledging for him, because in his current state, i have no desire to paint him. he's still in his box, while most of my bones 4 minis i bought are now painted. I just have no enthusiasm for painting him. I don't mind his size decrease as much as i lament the fact he is very poorly detailed compared to other big minis that Reaper has done

 

his wings in particular are just huge swaths of un-textured plastic with the occasional vein here and there stuck on


I agree.

Argent was the mini I was most leery of pledging for from Bones 4 because of what I perceived of the poor quality of what we were shown which were largely the issues you listed.

 

But I pledged for it anyway because I hoped those issues would be addressed.
As the final product shows, they weren’t.

Ironically, I felt they might not be.

 

The size difference is the least of Argents problems as far as I’m concerned.

I'm glancing at it every couple of hours and so far haven't seen a picture of anything that wasn't already unlocked. Kind of hard to be excited about upcoming stuff when I can't see pics ahead of time.

      Wellcome to our biggest miniatures ever! Blood and Skulls ork rider is the largest and more detailed miniature in 70 mm scale that Nocturna models released in all of these years. This project is really monstruous and we need your help to fund it.
      Take a look at all the figures in the campaign, all of them are in 70 mm scale. Blood and Skulls is 28 cm high!
        28 cm total size

      I've bought everything this company has put out so far.  I'll probably pick up these two as well.  Really great figures based on classic artwork.
       
      These two are both nude, so I can't show pictures here!

      "The muses" is a range of miniatures offered by Golem Miniatures.
      These 80 mm scale figures, in limited edition, will all come from realistic and oriental paintings of great painters of the nineteenth, a period that we greatly love.
      During the fourth campaign "The muses", we had suggested that you submit ideas for the next muses. A vote had then been put in place to decide between the 27 muses that you had selected.
      One muse dominated this vote: "La boîte à bijoux" painted by Guillaume Seignac.
      To accompany it, a second muse has been chosen on the same theme: "human skin on animal skin". You will discover it below, hoping she inspires you! :)
       
      During the third Muses campaign, we produced the magnificent Lady Godiva painted by John Collier, a famous English painter and one of the founders of the Royal Society of Portrait Painters.
      Here is another of his works: "Lilith" painted in 1889.
      Lilith is a mythical Hebrew and Biblical figure (Adam's first wife), whom some see as the very first portrayal of feminism in history.

      Story
      I'm Adam Sadler, senior game designer at Blacklist Games, and I love miniatures. They are what got my brother Brady and me into the hobby back when we were teenagers. Whether we’re using them in roleplaying games, board games, or tabletop miniatures games, we love collecting, assembling, painting, and playing with them. While Blacklist Games has published several of our games that feature miniatures, they saw our passion could be used for the creation of a new division that would focus solely on miniatures and allow for company growth in parallel with creating great board games. With everyone at the company excited about the possibility of this new division, here we are to share it with you!
      Blacklist Miniatures will focus entirely on producing high quality, highly detailed, pre-assembled plastic miniatures to be used in any type of game. Blacklist Miniatures: Fantasy Series 1, our first miniatures line, is not only a celebration of our love for miniatures, but also of all things fantasy.
      With your support, this campaign will not only bring this project to life, but also open the door to other lines of miniatures in various genres and even new games to utilize them!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
