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

Yeah I doubt they sculpted that sea around an unpainted model. All to givean impression and that's fine by me. I will be happy to paint it and crowd the deck with minis for display

The sea is real.  It's transparent blue plastic pulled off a pallet of stuff.

 

They mentioned the figurehead was attached with bluetack but the bluetack failed.  I suspect this picture was originally taken without the figurehead in place.

The "sea" around it would show white because of the angle they took the photo.  They did not have much of the transparent blue shrink wrap on the model.  If you look at he figurehead you can see the white line to the left of the broken gun.  Ron extended the shrink wrap to make a more convincing sea.  (My theory not from watching the photo being taken.)

I just got the first of 12(?) printable sky ships from a kickstarter and I had managed to talk myself out of this, but...  OMG the temptation...  I'd even just take the figurehead as a separate piece to paint up!

The figurehead and alternate figureheads are in the pledge manager as separate add-on/power ups, so you could just get it to paint up :devil:

Ooh, I'd missed that!  Thanks!

these pictures almost convinced my wife we need a boat. 

and a display case to put it in. 

 

I had it in the "that's too big to store"  category but am now on the fence.   

 

You have a fence? Problem solved, it can be displayed on top of that..

Fine fine I added the ship. Wrong for the time period and just so big, but it is a good price and if hubby ever wants a ship, now we will have one 

 

I can always just not put the cannons on, might help the time period thing a bit

I can truthfully say that as awesome and impressive as the Pirate Ship is, I'm not going to be picking one up. We just don't have space for it and I'd rather spend my money on more dragons and monsters to throw at my players. 

 

That said, I've already spent more in this kickstarter than in Bones 4 and I'm not finished by a long shot. I'm pretty sure that the ship and chronoscope are the only things that I'm not planning to buy as long as I don't run out of time/money. 

 

Edit: that sounds a bit grim, doesn't it? I meant time left in the Pledge Manager :lol:

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.

      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!
