Updates ... 17 & 25 have scale images on a 1" gridded cutting mat, IIRC. Update 45 has pictures of some stuff with Sir Forscale, but not on a grid. 

Thanks very much. Looks like Aganzarax is definitely untenable as a Huge dragon, since even his base overhangs a 3" grid. Bummer, but not entirely surprising. It's such a pretty dragon...:down:

The equivalent to the reapermini.com/bones4 still doesn't exist, does it? reapermini.com/bones5 redirects me to the KS page. I think there was talk about making a similar picture hub for this KS and I feel like it's really needed. We're getting so many pictures (which is great!) but they're being posted on facebook, the KS updates, this thread or in the twitch stream, which isn't great for finding them again, 3 months later when making your selections.

 

I almost wish, as real images of the products get produced, they'd at least update the PM with non-render images. The PM doesn't even have pictures of the expansions or Core set, which is a bit of a bummer. It was nice seeing everything in one place last time.

On Thursday and Friday they showed off a 3d print of the Yog-Sogoth elder god miniature.  I'm a little concerned by Ed's statement on Thursday that they expect to cast this in classic Bones.  If that is the case, this thing is going to sag badly.  Hopefully they have the foresight to cast the pillar section and the base in Bones Black, and the tentacled bits in classic bones (to prevent them from breaking easily).  But I don't know if they've ever done a mini in a combination to two types of plastic before (I doubt it).

 

The 3d print was impressive and spinning; I tried to get a shot from each angle of interest.

Yeah, I'm the one who was asking if it will be Bones Black.  I really do hope they do either a mix, or full on Bones Black.  Yeah, it's more fragile, but it will hold itself togethr a LOT better.  Classic bones in that pose will look nice, then a week later will startle you as it falls over and faceplants, making a loud bang on the table - or floor.

From the things they've said, a mix is extremely unlikely to happen. The two materials (at least last time) were done by different companies in different factories. The logistics of combining products not made in the same building by the same people would be ... daunting.

 

I'm not convinced that there would be a problem with that figure, though. The mass is supported in two places and the long bits are thin enough to not have a great deal of moment arm. Much will depend on how much they can limit the undercutting (which will affect the minimum amount of plasticizer.)
