I have really been on the fence with if I want to add more or not on this kickstarter. Still a little disappointed with some of the drooping models from the last one.  But I know I will have regrets...

 

So fare I have

* Pirate Ship

* Shadows of Ravenhome

* Demonic Temptation

* Hench Women

* Extra Halloween

* Charnal Pit of the Ghoul Queen (just added today)

 

Still have these on my wish list (i guess it should be my maybe list)

* Dark Depths expansion

* Brinewind Expansion

* Kid Heroes

* Shavynra the Slayer

* Brinewind extras

 

So $155.00 + $4.63 shipping

 

I decided no on the Sirens because they are translucent...

Wait, seriously? Why would they do that, and why wasn't such info in a Kickstarter post/update?

I believe it was in an update. Will go look to see if i can find it.

 

I was in doubt about them, decided not to, so if they're translucent, I'm happy with my decision.

Bones update #66 -

Well then, guess that takes them off of my list.  Pity, they're great looking sculpts, and one of the few female sculpts that made it onto my short list (I don't really enjoy painting minis of women), but I'm not a fan of translucent casts. 

 

Glad to see the info is finally mentioned in the pledge manager, since this info was not there originally.

Yeah, ok. Glad I didnt mis-remember. :) In the pledge manager it also states it in the description. 

 

This Bones 5 Option Reward features five sirens on a sculpted water-texture base that will be injected in a translucent blue color. Limit 10 Song of the Sirens Options per pledge. Sculpted by Christine Van Patten.

Why not?

 

Most of us (I think) prime before we get to painting anyway, so it's just a matter of how carefully you prime.

It seems like every update is later than the last. I come into update day excited. It ends up just being frustrating lately. It seems to me that they've lost sight of the core of communicating with us in the pursuit of various vanity projects in other media.

 

and...

As soon as I posted they uploaded the update. Two identical pictures, but at least it's of cool figures. Brinewind looks supercool, but it always did. The catfolk on the right seems to have on very uncomfortable boots, after looking at her companion's feet. They both have really sweet hats, though.

I'm glad the Sirens will be translucent (and they always were denoted that way).  I plan to paint them up as Nerieds, keeping them mostly translucent so they look as though they are made from water.

I actually ordered two of this set, as I'll paint the second up as opaque humanoids to serve as sirens.

 

I know there's someone in the last kickstarter who got two copies of the Stygian Barge, so he would get two copies of the translucent "souls."  He painted one set up as spirits, remaining largely transparent, and the other set he painted up as regular humans, representing the same souls before death.  The paint jobs were quite well done, and you couldn't tell the models were themselves translucent plastic.

ummm...Oh nevermind, that poor horse is all black and blue...nothing to see here:)

 

As for the sirens, I personally think it is awesome they are translucent (I may need two now). Hmm, were can I get the maximum coverage on a tea light:) And if you want a regular mini, just use badger stynlrez with your NEW Reaping Badger airbrush.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
