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.

      Here's a kickstarter that I thought looked particularly cool - they're flat-based tiles with magnets that can be reconfigured anyway you want. The video in particular looks pretty cool. Already completely funded. Prices are a bit high and ultimately the system's not for me, but I thought perhaps some others might be interested. :)

      Story
      The Death Knight Rises
      To me there's only one true fallen paladin who, deceived by the darkest forces, broke his oath and became a paragon of hatred and terror. But, I am into classic TTRPGs, so I wanted to rethink the concept. Boris Woloszyn, amazing sculptor that he is, took over and has transformed this idea into a remarkable sets of miniatures.
        The Miniatures
      There are only two. The Minion is 32mm scale and the Fallen Paladin measures 40mm to the top of his head.They will get cast in the crispest of resins. They come unassembled and without bases. 
        The Paladin - doing a gentle spin
       PLAY The Minions
      The Pledge Levels
      There are two. Ones comes with only the Death Knight, the other comes with the Death Knight and two minions.
      The price for only the Death Knight is 15CA$, the set with 1 Death Knight and 2 minions is 35CA$ (less than 30US$). 
      Backerkit will charge max. 14CA$ for postage on top of that.
        Stretch Goals
      We have one and I will unlock it if we reach 10K.
        Add-On's
      We will open a backer kit pledge manager for those that want some extra minis, and we make sure to drop all the suitable Boris stuff in there too.
       
      I want to give you a little preview what to expect in terms of add-on's.
       
      There will be this well known lot sculpted by Boris. 10C$ each. (In case you want to top up to find out what 10K will bring)
      And there will be some 3D printed things (20 Microns, they paint like casts).
       
      1. This lad and his little buddy, because dwarves and gobbos. 8CA$
      2. 3 Halflings on a rampage. 2 female 1 male, because. Also - kettle jump pack. The pacK of 3 plus 2 steam bases will be 20 C$
      I still have more to throw into the mix, but I need to re-watch that episode now.  
       
      Thanks again!

      I'm about to get a new kickstarter running. I like this one a lot. Really easy to paint and make it look good. You'll need a 3d printer which are coming down severely in price lately for good quality ones.
      This particular set of ruins has an arch theme to it. Images show all unique pieces except for the bridges which have duplicates.
      And the prelaunch link. Due to start Tuesday 8th December https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1173449368/ruins-of-generica
