Also always a chance that Kit is on vacation/swamped with UK orders/sick...

Not to mention his ongoing work with the new website.

I thought the number of backers was between 18,000 and 19,000 ?

 

Where did you get 250K?

 

 

Lol... some days I just shouldn't get out of bed. :wacko:   For some unknown brain hiccup reason, I was looking at dollar total not backer total.  You are correct, and the backer total difference between 4 and 5 was only 2,387.

I’ve had days like that...

It'd be awesome if the pledge manager went live right before PAX. That would be good timing for Reaper's sake due to the giant pile of gamers all in one spot who will be talking about it. And it's 3 weeks away, which gives Kickstarter time to get off their butts.

Conan is slightly bigger than Sir Forscale. The base is 30mm,  Female base is 50mm, the male's base is 76mm.

 

The new storm giant is considerably larger than the old.

Here’s a picture from the pre-launch thread that was taken from one of the Reaper Live shows.

I think combine with what @Maledrakh shared it should hopefully give you an idea of size.

Oookeiii.... That's a big guy....

Sigh... Ok, I think im digging me'own grave here but... Will not(if we keep a consistent scale) that guy being just about right to be a Titan? I admit that im hazzy on the details (size, new editions, all that jazz) but the giants IIRC were roughly the height of 3 tall guys stacked and that guy is More or less four guys so....

 

Edit: just checked, nope, im dead wrong a Titan will be at least 10 guys stacked.... Or the somesuch.... Daaaamnnnn...

If you don’t play anything official, they can be whatever size you want.

These figures vary between games and editions too. Reaper gives their best effort, but they are never going to win the "right size" game.

 

I think he looks cool, so I want one. If I actually paint it that will be awesome. If I also get it into a game: bonus!

Well, yes that is true on both fronts, I myself rarely played "by the book" sizes if any (dm just said "you find a bloke the size of -random landmark/object- and it wants trouble" it's just that the whole size/scale thing has been in my mind as of recently

True, but with the success of 5e (which I do not play) it would be in Reapers interest to have their minis work well with 5e.  Plus with giants bigger usually is more dramatic.

I feel somewhat guilty, but I will not be ordering the Chronoscope  after calling for sci-fi. The problem is that I don't need zombies, most of the first section I already have. The third section I really, really like but it is not worth the $50 for that one section and I don't feel like having to sell the other stuff. So I will probably run the $50 in other stuff here and wait for the third section to release at retail.

No reason to feel guilty about it.

Especially when you plan on buying stuff in retail later.

 

I have thought about it and I will not go for the expansion either, I will buy a few of those trailers in retail though and the explorers types and maybe more.

Chronoscope is going to be the first thing I grab when the PM goes live. I wailed and moaned that Reaper needed to put some focus into Chronoscope and dwarfed if they didn't give it the old college try. It's far from perfect (Looking at you, Santa. All I want for Christmas is for you to be an old car.), but they put forth the effort this time an I find that encouraging. I will express that by giving them my money for it first.

      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.
