A future example is a NPC, that the players are gonna encounter. She is a tax collector that is forced into being the new leader for the town the PCs are in. Book, she suppose to have half-plate & a great-sword. Looking at my stash of minis that is a hard combo to find. 


the Bones V fan favorites female landsknect! Too bad she’s so far away. I know you aren’t looking for a mini, but Hasslefree also makes 2 versions of a female landsknect that matches that description. 
 

the world will be a better place when there is a bones female landsknect in every household...,

My world will be better when I can get a unit of 10-12 of them! ::):

 

Planning on doing some head swaps and arm and weapon repositioning to give a bit more variety to the group.

Does it seem like longer than usual for Kickstarter to be sending the backer info to Reaper?  I don't seem to remember waiting over 2 weeks before... more like a week to 10 days...

IMO, they can space it out if they like, maybe it will make the next section of waiting seem shorter...

I backed another Kickstarter that ended the day before Bones V ended. They got the information back last Friday (and it was a much smaller Kickstarter), so I imagine that Reaper may not yet have the information, or could be getting it soon(tm).  Plus on Reaper Live last week they said that after they do get the information that Kit has to work his magic before the pledge manager will go live for us.

Having worked with significantly smaller databases (as well as bigger ones, just in a different capacity), I can see it potentially taking a week or so for Kit to get all the data into the pledge manager and make sure it is working as expected, and even then I expect there to be a few issues that crop up after it goes live

 

So realistically I'd say 2 weeks after they get the data from Kickstarter before the PM opens would not be unreasonable.

Ok, I just checked; for Bones 4 the Kickstarter ended on September 2nd 2017 (Update 77), and the Pledge Manager opened on September 10th (Update 78). Eight days.   So remembering it going much more quickly in the past was correct.

I was enthused to see more pages of kickstarter feed to read through, only to find discussions on the history of GW and Dremel's. Could we do some more kickstarter fun in here? :p

 

What's the thing that you're looking most forward to for this KS?

 

I'm so glad to see Zombie Dwarfs, and the Elemental Scions will play a nice part in my ongoing campaign I think.

But those dragons.. these will be my first adult sized dragons, not counting Bones 4 Argent (plan to use him as a god).

Next up would be almost everything in the Fan Favorites expansion :p 

 

For my wife it will likely be the Yokai and the mouselings xD

Aside from the ship, I look forward the most to the Dark Depths, The Goroloth and Arakoth.

Also...I want to take that Lion Dragon, remove the wings and make a giant sabretooth from that.

I still need to look back over everything to remember what I'm excited about, cuz there's just so much! Townsfolk are still quite near the top of my list, though. 

 

Even though we have no need and no space for that ship, I really can't stop thinking about it. So many fun ways to paint it keep popping into my head! :lol:

 

Huzzah! 

--OneBoot :D

I'm definitely looking forward to the ship. I have never run a nautical campaign, but it looks like I'm going to have to do so at some point. It's a shame my campaign world doesn't really lend itself to a seafaring campaign in the same way as a world where the oceans are continuous...

      Tomb Guardians over the past year has been asked to release our miniatures in a resin/plastic material because a lot of you do not like metal.  So for nearly a year we have discussed and researched the best way to produce a high quality, high detail miniature that is far above the current standard on the market.  We are happy to announce that we have found a method and decided to release all our 28mm monsters in a High Resolution Resin.  These miniatures will come with a 1 year guarantee, if you break one we will replace it for FREE!  Just mail it back to us.   Bobby Jackson, Jason Weibe, Gene Van Horne and Patrick Keith help create these amazing creatures.  We hope you enjoy our Monsters and want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

      Neat little Kickstarter to make a set of Plastic Toy Soldier Style Army Women.  
       
      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/bmctoys/plastic-army-women?ref=9u35x8&amp;token=9e662474
       
      The BMC Toys Plastic Army Women is a 24-piece set of plastic female soldier figures in 6 different poses:
      Pathfinder Captain Standing Rifleman Kneeling Rifleman Prone Sniper Grenadier Bazooka Operator November 16th Update: Stretch Goals #1, #2 and #3 are unlocked. All packs of Plastic Army Women are getting upgraded to 36 figures in 12 different poses.  Additional poses include:
      Running Rifleman Combat Medic Low-Crawl Rifleman Radio Operator Wounded Soldier ????????  Made from slightly flexible olive drab green color LDPE plastic, the figures will be approximately 1:32 scale, and stand up to 2.1 inches tall. Their uniforms and equipment are Cold War era, and the size and style are designed to allow these figures to fit in with a wide range of Plastic Army Men that already populate several generations of toy boxes.
