..... whelp, that post was literally right above my original reply to it. Apparently I had that vague plan for a reason. In my defence, I DID have surgery like a week ago and haven't taken my ADHD meds at all since then, which is a perfectly good reason to totally have forgotten that. Thanks dude, I appreicate it.

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

Things that I was not intending to do at 2 o'clock in the morning; buy the Dark Depths expansion

Things I ended up doing at 2 o'clock in the morning; buying the Dark Depths expansion

 

Dark Depths was one of the first expansions in the campaign that really jumped out at me - I adored it from the beginning, though I think it got a bit of flack (at least on the KS page) when it was announced for being mostly fish or fish people in the first part. And then as the campaign continued, I just ended up prioritizing things I considered to be "classical" or more practical DnD things and it got left behind.

 

But everyone is definitely right that it's overstocked and way undervalue for what it's in. I think it's got more big monsters in it than Greek Odyssey and GO is like 75% big monsters! I don't intend to run a lot of underwater stuff (and despite how nice the pirate ship is, I think I am ultimately leaving it) but honestly most of them can be shoreline encounters and there are a few in there like the Dunkleosteus that would make good spiritual guardians of shrines or something, to mix it up.

 

Also that sea giant. :wub: Like, who wouldn't, really?

Ooooo, the number of Buglips figures has reached near max order capacity.    

 

If Reaper is super brilliant, they'll use a super smelly plastic just on those figures to really convey the Goblininess of it.

Its funny how people prioritize stuff.   As ppl know,  for me it's

 

1) big epic monsters first

2) rare/uncommon monsters that don't have models

3) stuff that may be fun to paint/nice model

4) stuff worth selling to cover Kickstarter costs

 

Depths was instant must have since it met criteria 2 with the eye of the deep

 

Greek met criteria 2 and 3 due to the bronze golem and cloud giant. Storm giant is 3.

 

The 5 main dragons were 3 but now maybe 3/4. The kaiju is 4

 

The catoblepas was a very unique situation. I don't believe any older models of it were made and even if ral partha had one its metal and much smaller scale so that was  a must.  it should be 2 but its so cool it kinda belongs in 1 even though it's not massive :D

Good to see the husband is the 3rd priority :)

Haha he puts himself there too. He rarely games in person and can usually find stand in minis for models he doesn't have, so things to use for actual gaming are pretty low on the list

Husband made the list; he is thankful just to be there.

I decided to tally up the money I spent vs the amount of minis I'm getting. Including the pirate ship as 1 mini, I'm spending a grand total of $1.81 per mini, including shipping :wow:

I'll probably get hit with VAT and such before actually getting my stuff, but its still a pretty good deal :)

Scratch-N-Sniff Buglips?

 

That's just asking for trouble and one more reason why he comes with a cancer warning in California.

      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.
