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

Looking at that, I wonder if the hands are cast on to the poles, or whether it will be possible to separate the ogre from the cart as game play dictates... 

I feel like an ogre would simply turn said cart into a melee weapon, so staying attached would make sense as well.

As of today, I've officially finished my initial wishlist (and must have power-ups) that I created back when the pledge manager opened, mostly by spending my initial pledge on the big stuff, and then spending $20-30 every payday since then.  With 7 paydays and a possible commission bonus between now and the official closing of the pledge manager, I may actually run out of things to purchase this time.

From the undercuts where the hands are meeting the cart shafts, it looks as though they're separate in this instance.

True, though after the ogre used the cart as a melee weapon there probably wouldn't be much left of the cart, so same issue of a cart-less ogre in the end. :lol:

If they aren't separate, I'm cutting them right behind the hands, and installing magnets. I loves me some magnets!

 

Good idea!

Warmachines acquired or at least they are on order! I was going to get the mouselings but I noticed I missed a Power Up (the werewolves). I ended up getting that instead. So really the only thing I want now is the mouselings, if I decide to get them.

 

I keep forgetting bases....so I think my last order will be over-sized mice & bases! Most likely I'll get those ordered this month sometime. If not then I'm done! Funny, I told myself I was only going to get a few things this time around as my needs are more for my games & I can 3d print now but I still think this was my biggest KS yet. Easily topping last KS spending.

Anyone have a clue how many bases in what size to buy if you're getting almost every thing? 

Ahhh, that would depend on a couple of factors. 
 

First, many of the figures come with integrated based that actually feature nice terrain as part of the actual figure; cobblestone flooring, or some cool terrain with fallen statues as part of it, etc. For those, I for instance, do not put them on yet another base bc I don’t live in a world where every size miniature has to fit on the specific 1”, 2”, or 3” base as per space/sizing for a tabletop RPG. If there is any confusion at my game table, I quickly clarify and we move on. 
 

If you are the type that must have medium sized figs on 1” bases, and so forth, then I can be of no assistance other than to suggest adding up all the figs per set. Someone may have a spreadheet already generated, but I doubt it’ll include sizing/base requirements.

I would also add that at this point we really don't know what will be the exact sizes of the integral bases on many of the figures (or with some, even if they will come with or without an integral base), so it's very hard to know what size separate base each figure's integral base will require.

I think they even highlighted it when the render first went up.

We all know who the real boss is.


As soon as I saw that, I immediately wrote an encounter of a traveling merchant with his ogre bodyguard! The party thinks they’re dealing with a weak-minded ogre and may try to swindle him. But as you said, we all know who the real boss is. :B):

      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!

      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.
