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

Or it'll be the good ship Ardent and get shrunk.

 

 

After the flack they got for shrinking Argent, and because they made such a selling point of the ship’s size, my guess would be that it has proven much mure costly than they expected, but they’re going to fulfill the KS orders as promised but then cease production of it.

I’d of actually loved if they had offered a 1/2 or 3/4 size version of the same ship. I could have literally had a variety of different ships.

Also a photo of a sample of the glow in the dark ship material option they are considering (pending final production approval). The update stated they are still not 100% sure they will offer this option.

Also in the update they announced the Dragons Don’t Share dragon will be added to the PM as a power up

I’m sorta pessimistic about the glow in the dark ship. I want to be optimistic and I know Reaper would deliver quality if they find an option they can execute upon; I just have a feeling that the idea of a glow in the dark ship is cooler than actual practice. I don’t want to drop $100 to find out if it’s way less cool than I imagined.

Yah having both the Reaper & Wizkids ships, I could handle a smaller sized one. I'll leave the other materials to others.

I pledged and locked it in.

If that ship gets shrunk I expect some kind of refund, the size has been advertised several times during the KS so I hope it stays that way.

I can imagine that it won't hit retail.

Actually if you got the Glow in the Dark option you would have dropped $125.  Ron said the GitD was going to be more.

Hmmm... If the SS Reaper isn't going to get a retail release, it makes me more tempted to get a second one so I can sell it after the fact...

I can’t imagine how much a fully painted version would sell for in the aftermarket if it was a KS exclusive.

*** Rubs greedy paws***

 

*** Let's find out!***

 

I had still hoped the A-Ford they talked about would be a power up.

Could use one!

*edit - information subsequently corrected by reaper Ron and it will indeed be smoky*

I have just noticed Krateryx, the shadow dragon, is going to be translucent purple, not smoky or clear. I think that is going to upend my painting plans. Maybe if it was a very faint purple, but from what I have seen of the other purple translucents it is pretty overwhelming. Has anyone thought about how they will approach it short of priming the whole thing?

I’ve found using dry-brushing and layering the raised edges is good so that it shows the translucency in the deepest recesses! It’s a cool effect imo

      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.
