I’m thinking I’ll to sculpt feathers on some of the Dino people, but otherwise I really like them. Especially the mage triceratops guy. Hubby has an NPC (formerly PC) “trihorn” that that mini would work great for. 
 

Though, I do think they should have been their own add-on, and the daimyo expansion could have ninjas. Which would just be Japanese peasants :rolleyes:

 

AH ha, now that you mention this, I recall the FR novel cover:

Never read that one but I did read Curse of Azure Bonds back then. Hmmm after seeing that picture again, it perks my interest a bit for the fantasy dinos.

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

I'm a bit disappointed in the Daimyo expansion and won't buy it unless the 3rd part really blows my socks off. Which is fine I'd like to keep my spending down this time compared to buying almost everything last round. Want to focus more on things I "know" I'll use instead. Considering culling unused earlier Bones but that's never worked out well for me in the past. Even my minimal attempt is looking to be several hundred dollars.

 

I'm feeling the same way.  Zero interest in the dino-men, but most of the humanoids look useful.  Part 3 is going to have to wow me or it's going to be something I pick up retail several years down the road.

Hopefully the KS hasn't entered into it's lull period already.

Historically, the strongest drive is always the first day, and then it drops quite a bit after that. The pledges coast along for a few weeks, and then it picks up dramatically again around 4-5 days before the end. Changes in stretch goals will alter that, though, since some people are waiting for certain things.

 

I also want everyone to keep in mind that this is only day 3 of 31, so we've barely scratched the surface for what kind of minis will be out there. The ones at the start are always interesting but don't always generate the hype that others will, but the WOW factor will steadily increase as time goes on so just be patient. We're in for the long ride, let's see where it takes us.

it isn't geometry breaking! it just has no internal structure, just a pile of magic appearing as a normal object, except wrong.

 

Lovecraft has a fear of Euclidian geometry. It is annoying how prevalent it is in his writing.

Hopefully Reaper is ready for that rush as far as revealing stretch goals & such. Without a proper social media person (aka Reaperbryan formerly) the updates on the KS were kinda disappointing yesterday. I found out about them here.

Lovecraft was a giant moron -_- among other things. At least he gave us a cool mythos to play with, so he wasn’t a total waste of molecules. 
 

 

Anyhoo... I’m really hoping the oriental dragon corresponds to the one on the map. That’s a shoe in for me, even if they don’t make it big enough.

I agree, but still, an update to the Kickstarter page before Reaper goes home for the night would be nice.  Or maybe they're just going to coast along with what's posted ... ::(:

So is reaper taking this kickstarter serious or not?  No updates on time, no images for the Goroloth unlock.  They seem to be stunting their own kickstarter with their inattention.  I am not impressed. 

 

Hopefully in the end they can figure out how this works so we have plenty to actually bid for.  So far I am underwhelmed at the lack of communication Reaper has shown on this, which considering how bad the last couple ended mired in poor communication but had good communication while the kickstarter ran.

 

We want to have kickstarter posts in advance on your actual kickstarter.  If I have to look online for a video I have no time to watch to even find out what may be in this I will leave it at my initial $1 and just increase it last day if I remember or in PM if I don't.  It is not like I have even seen more than 3, (maybe 4 if the mammoth gets a good scale reference)  things I am interested in pledging for but I know the pre-kickstarter images had a ton of things from underwater creatures, to Greek mythology stuff, but right now so do not know what Goroloth even looks like!!! WTF!!

      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!
       
      NSFW link:

      "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.
