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

At this point, I have nearly everything being sent to me except Ron. I was able to get Ed and Jon, but Ron would have bumped up the shipping cost. Sorry, buddy.

 

I've heard you could sell Ed on eBay for a decent price, and it would be worth the extra shipping. Might even pay for the rest of your pledge :lol:

The most expensive of minis.

Yep, Second and subsequent are cheaper than the first, unless you have twins or reach critical mass where a new means of conveyance is required.

 

On topic, I picked up a fairly small list this time around - 2 x Greek Odyssey, 1 x Shadows of Ravenholme, 1 x Chronoscope, 2 x Campground powerups, 1 x Halloween

But that's bigger than my bones 4 which was pretty much Baba Yaga's Hut and Shipping containers, or bones 3 where I didn't pick up anything (didn't have any spare cash at the time due to moving house, I did pick up a $1 pledge just in case...), but smaller than bones 1 & 2 where I picked up core sets and more

Basically one of everything minus the townsfolk, busts, a couple of the expansions & couple other things. Spent waaaaay over what I originally wanted to spend but, eh all I've got to worry about is a few things going to retail. Which is fine by me.

Trust me, some of us call that "showing some restraint", especially for a late backer.

 

True, not everyone has the budget nor the need to get more. But overspending on a Bones KS is practically a rite of passage with this gang.

I’m so proud of my ability to exercise restraint with respect to little plastic toys.

I don't think I've ever shared my finalized selection:

 
Subtotal: $934.00
Shipping: $104.95 <_<

Total: $1038.95

 

So you're saying about 400 in US dollars. :lol:

The problem with painting my miniatures is that I paint human figures just fine. It's the large monsters that I have problems starting and sometimes finishing. When I want to paint it is just so much easier to take human and paint it. My bones 4 human sized pledge is dwindling far more quickly than what I expected. Meanwhile I hardly started on the bigger monsters.

and i'm the exact reverse haha

 

my big monsters are first painted, and the things i'm eager to paint. The humanoids, especially the smaller ones like halflings, sit in bead boxes for months waiting to be painted because doing things so tiny and trying to do faces and eyes are just...bleh

 

I usually do the monsters first both because they're larger and more useful to me as a DM, and because they're typically more generic, and I don't have to worry about discovering that they aren't the right look.

 

I'm often concerned that a humanoid/PC mini will wind up being the perfect miniature for a player, but I'd already painted it into a color palette that doesn't match what the player wants. Since I usually provide the minis to my players, it means my humanoid/PC minis tend to be the last things I get to.

      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.

      Looking quite good! I'm backing for the character set.

      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!

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1615588135/les-muses-lilith-and-la-boite-a-bijoux
       
      "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!
