Aw, sadly the images are broken on your linked post :( 

I had skipped on that one, his size was incredible, and I could not foresee a use for him within our D&D games.

Though that model is bloody amazing aswell!

 

I think I have an idea of why, but I added some links to the main post. You should be able to click on those to see the pics (I've had other people have the same issue and the links work for them). He was EXTREMELY fun to paint! Yog I anticipate I'll spend more time on (more eyes LOL), but the sculpt is just so darned intriguing! Models like Narl and Yog are exactly why I am so enamored with what Reaper has done with Bones. Ok, and I admit, I LOVE the dragons they do as well! Julie can't make a bad dragon in my mind! Also why I can't wait to get my grubby hands on the Pirate ships. Ugh, is it time for fulfillment yet? :lol:

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

No they aren’t. If they aren’t showing up, it has to do with the hardware on your end.

They don't show on my end either.  It's something with how the forum handles things.

They don't show for me either but the links did work - it looks fantastic, @bojesphob! You did good work. I don't think I have ever seen that sculpt before you brought it up and I am kinda disappointed it doesn't appear to have hit the store yet - I want to give it a go...

 

I saw in the kickstarter comments that they turned more things off in the PM - it's looking very bare now, but the extra wall of thorns pack is back again! All encounters but Ravenhome are gone though, all the siege weapons and really all the other loose options previously still hanging around - only the dragons, giants, the mammoth and the mini godzilla left now. Daimyo's gone too (just Dungeon Dwellers, Dark Depths and Greek Odysses now). Paints still there.

 

.... Sort of tempted to snag some wall of thorns.... I didn't get any extras for it in the end because I felt I should also get wall of stone extras if I did that - but now they aren't available! So it's way cheaper. Technically. Except for the part where I buy more minis.

 

Also whoa, yeah - I've been following some of the discussion involving the kickstarter complaints and honestly, I thought I was late, not even finalizing my first order until October, but yeesh. Who doesn't triple-check these things? I swear I can't make a single purchase without flipping my card over to make sure the details somehow haven't changed or reopening my wallet the moment I leave the store to see if I actually put the damn thing back in there...

 

(Have either of those two things ever happened? No. Might they still happen one day? Maybe.)

That out of the way...We're like, three months from start of shipping! Holy crap!

 

This is absolutely killing me right now for some reason. I think it's the ADHD; no concept of time, so my brain only recognizes "not now" and "now" and the same year as delivery is considered to be "now". :( I was planning all the taunting messages I'm going to send to my players once they come in, last night. Look at this picture of this lovely thing that I absolutely won't make you fight........

I bought the last two dragons I had dithered over, and decided not to buy at least twice. 

ah well.  I like dragons. 

 

I regret missing the scions, they were not my list until I painted a few Avatars and a genie, and realized I really like the size at the moment.  

but I did avoid adding any more expansions!  see some self control remained.

I definitely dithered a lot over the dragons - ended up picking out 2 or 3 I liked... and then went back and got the other chromatics to get the set and then went back a third time to get Nathavarr, since that was the only one I hadn't gotten. (in my defence, I don't own a single dragon at the moment) I don't know what it is about dragons... but the allure is irresistible.

 

There's one or two things I regret not getting too. <_< You don't even realize what you'll regret until it's gone. The scions I only ended up getting because I got Fan Favourites and I didn't want to be out most of the set. Lessons for next kickstarter, I suppose.

 

Though speaking of adding things - I did end up grabbing two packs of the wall of thorns. I wasn't sure initially, but I did eventually realize my counting was off and they were 10'/2" across (or close enough) and I was counting them as 5'/1"... ended up being less in that case. Feels a bit better than going for a bunch of them.

I would've gotten everything but I'm blaming that on my firstborn arriving a year ago

 

Excuses, excuses LOL

I completely missed out on Bones III for the same exact reason. Didn't even know it happened until Bones IV was announced.

You have to wonder if Reaper team is sitting around a table, all wearing smoking jackets, monocle in one eye, pipes in hand going, "Looks like the US stimulus worked. How many did we collect?  Muhhahahaha, hahahhaha, muhhaahhahaha!"

 

... but seriously.

      Been watching the previews for this on Bold's Instagram,  Some crazy cute models, this time sculpted by  Ismael Nieto.  I'm particularly fond of Bisa and Tori, the winners of the dino race, and the BatPacker is too cute.  Resin cast and STL like their last several releases.  I've picked up their STLs before and been very happy, Planning to try to swing for at least one in resin this time, though shipping from Sweden hurts.

      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!
