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

What I really want is to have a more detailed shot of the Townfolk. Is it just me or can the ladies on the second row can be painted us nuns? I already brought the set, because civilians are fun to paint. Sadly it doesn't have many tradesmen, thought that is covered by the Brinewind Expansion. I wonder if I am the only person excited about the civilians. I literally brought the Player Characters for the civilians inside the set.

 

I am still considering both Henchmen sets but the Shadow Dragon vs Troll Bridge vs Shadows of Ravenhome are making this seem unlikely (or another expansion).

I feel like a lame fangirl, but we just hadn't found time to sit down together and sort out what we wanted.

 

This. :ik_oops:

 

I keep poking MrBoot that we need to do it (because otherwise I'd just pledge for all the things that I want, which would be, um...expensive :lol:). I did lock in a core set ages ago to solidify shipping order, but other than that we need to confer to make sure that the other things we get are useful to him as well as me, since I'm more about the painting and he's more about the gaming. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

I added the villagers in Bones 4 along with the ones that came in the Core set. I've got quite a few townsfolk minis now, and there's some other KS out there that have some with more character. I'm on the fence about this set. I'm not sure I need 50+ villagers...

How else are you going to prevent your players from flinging fireballs when the bad guys ambush the town square?

 

In all honesty, I ragged on the Townsfolk add-on pretty hard during the KS campaign.  I do still think too many of them are static... but I might end up throwing them on last-minute anyway.  We'll see.

But that is a perfect size for a hamlet or small town! How unrealistic are you games if the city doesn't have more than 50 civilians?

Yeah, they are pretty static. But they do work as people speaking to each other. Plus the more expensive clothing and cloaks can work for mages and wizard, so you can now make a whole college/university.

The static poses aren't entirely a problem for generic NPCs. Dynamic poses draws more attention, which makes them feel more "important" than some random people. That said, the only thing I really like about them is that there's children and/or small villagers in the group. I'll mull it over. I've cut the Dungeon Dwellers expansion from my planned purchase so...

      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.

      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!

      First time posting a KS thread.  Tribality is releasing a companion book to their previous KS "Seas of Vodari."  I thoroughly enjoyed the previous book and have been looking forward to this one.
      As this is the first time I'm posting a KS thread, please feel free to let me know if I'm doing anything wrong.

      I think that's enough for context.  The rest can be found on the KS page.
