It's interesting... I'm actually not super enthusiastic about Bones 5 (or 6 for that matter) at the moment. Which is weird, cause I'm still looking forward to a lot of the minis, but... Maybe after we move, and have a slightly bigger space? Just feeling really cramped right now.

I'm kind of looking forward to it, but I suspect excitement will ramp up once we start getting tracker notifications and whatnot (or at least orders being picked and packed).

 

My biggest curiosity is just how small of a box they'll be able to stuff all my things into!

Still following this closely, but it's a protection for myself to not get over excited, I'm expecting at least a few months delay. if it doesn't happen, then great! But June is what I'm aiming for to hopefully unpack the bigass box that's coming over to my house.

 

Also the fact that real life D&D is not "on the table" at this point (pun intended, obviously), kills some drive to paint. Still painting, but less and slower!

This, 100%. I haven't played my "regular" Pathfinder game for over a year, so a lot of the things that I might have been eager to do with my campaign and miniatures have just withered on the vine.

I still have 3 dnd groups that get together regularly, all different people.

 

Still painting like a fiend and not making enough time to post pics. I need to do that.

You're lucky. My gaming group was having a few attendance issues due to one player's emotional baggage even before 2020, and we last met right around Christmas 2019. Then our first few sessions in 2020 were cancelled due to her issues, and then COVID, and we've only seen each other as a group about 3 times since then. I don't know when we'll be resuming the campaign. I'm of half a mind to just start with a new campaign when we are able to resume, but they all want to just try and speed through the "boss levels" and get done with it instead.

I have been painting regularly, but really missing getting to use minis in my games. I bought a ton of models for the end a a significant part of my campaign, then Covid reared it’s nasty head again and we had to go back to playing virtually. It just isn’t the same.

I’m excited, just not much new to talk about at the moment (the bi-weekly updates have been sparse on new info, but that’s just the nature of the beast right now).

 

I've been unfortunate enough to be a “COVID Long-Hauler,” and have developed chronic fatigue syndrome, so my ability to do much of anything has been severely curtailed. Bones 5 will be a lifetime of painting fodder in my current state (won’t stop me from backing Bones 6, though). But, that’s why I’m setting up an airbrush (last piece, the compressor, is on order and in the mail). The paint jobs may end up simpler than I had originally imagined, but I’ll be able to at least get them on the table with some color. 
 

We paused live gaming last spring, and at points over the summer when some of us had been exposed (we actually never spread it amongst ourselves), but have been gaming in-person since August, as my preparedness and energy levels allowed. I did eventually come to terms with the fact I couldn’t handle running a high level game at the moment, so we had to put our long-running Curse of the Crimson Throne campaign on hiatus while I continue to recover; we had just started the final installment of the adventure path, too. <_<::(:
 

Started a new short-term campaign at first level, running The Sunless Citadel for now, as that’s about what I can handle at the moment. I’ve run it before, so there’s almost zero prep work required. 
 

Over the next two months or so, I’m hoping to get my airbrush up and running, and practice with it a fair bit with models I don’t much care about (Bonesylvania Chibi mini’s sent in my 2019 Christmas paints pistol case, etc.), so I’m ready to hit the ground running once Bones 5 arrives. 
 

Slow and steady, and a few good days, will win the race.

Whew, I gotta stop reading the KS comments. The utter helplessness of people being unable to make purchases correctly is mind boggling. It’s like people have never used the internet to purchase items before! I wouldn’t have what it takes to work Reaper’s customer service that’s for sure!

I stopped looking as soon as the kickstarter ended and I didn't need to post the stats. I learned after the first couple of kickstarters that it just is not worth it.

      This is funded with 10 days left to go. There are busts, 75mm, 38mm and a couple of kickstarter exclusives.
       
      Miniature's Den is currently painting the female bust and will be working on a few more pieces on his twitch streams: https://www.twitch.tv/miniaturesden

      A small but creative series of Garden Gnome miniatures by sculptor Tom Mason. Search for his name in the Reaper figure finder and you'll see some of his other work.
       
      The Gnome Guard
       
      “The Gnome Guard” expands on the world of “The Adventures of Little Knife and Kronan” & ”The Goblin Menace” by introducing the stalwart guards of the garden.
       
      One of the world’s most timeless lawn decorations can now come to life on your tabletop. Whether you need comparably adorable force to face off against other pint-sized foes, or you’re just obsessed with garden gnomes, these miniatures will make a great addition to any collection.
       
       
      I have a few preview gnomes on my painting workbench. They are great! Small, simple, metal, easy to paint, but full of personality. [/unsolicited review]

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/nextlevelminiatures/next-level-miniatures-dragons-hoard-miniatures-vol-1/

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Right on the heels of their last shipped campaign, Midlam Miniatures is back. After several years of halflings, the gnomes are back!

      Also available in different pledge combos, two of the older campaigns:
       
      I already own this one from 2018 (Common - Garden Gnomes):
