I also noticed on my end gauth has no picture showing. 

I believe they said in some chat thing that they didn't have one!?!  I assume that there will be a piccy somewhen. Otherwise look in Bones 4 (?, I lose track of which of the multitudinous dragons I aquired through bones cam efrom which) on the kick starter, I expect there is a pretty (?) piccy of him.

 

Extra! Extra! Read all about it...

Got my minis last week. Really happy with the casting of the Bones Black material. Definitely a big improvement in crispness compared to Bones White.

 

After seeing some painted mini pics, I’m wishing I got the Golem set. I got a Loot Golem, but I love the Stained Glass Golem and the Stone Golem is bigger than I though it would be.

 

My friend got a Pirate Ship. It definitely looks awesome, but I think I’d struggle to use it enough in my games to justify the cost and it’s that big I’d need to find more room just to store it! :-D

I help myself with chatting in the discord and getting my own information from ReaperHQ ZombieCo (Reaper UK), but I would very very much appreciate an official update from here.
We know they're a smaller group, and we know they might have their struggles, like getting enough shippers to accept their packages.

But if we are not updated, we're trying to fill in the blanks ourselves with guesses.

I'd much prefer to know the actual state. Would it be possible to get like a weekly update from the UK guys stating how many they shipped last week, possibly some issue they're tackling or have tackled, and what wave they're in?

 

I'm 100% sure this would be appreciated and help ease the minds of many EU/UK backers.

Can’t beat the value/quality combo you get with Reaper KS!

 

Nice work!

 

I’m really happy I got the Dark Depths expansion. The Aquatic Beholder is probably worth half the cost of entry by itself, but there are so many cool minis in the box. 39 minis for $50 is ridiculous value.

I am really impressed by the townsfolk figures. I expected to like them, but not as much as I am liking them. They are such simple sculpts and yet they provide a really nice range of characters that include a couple of possible wizards, priests and thieves. Plus townsfolk can be thrown nearly everywhere.

Dark depths value for money was amazing. That is mostly due to the the large size of nearly all figures and the large amount of medium to large figures. A comparison to a similar product on the market (Wizkids dolphins and sharks, ~10AUD for a large shark and fin or two large dolphins), really highlight this. As I said previously the merpeople being so large was a real surprise.

Glad you guys got it figured out, I remember asking Izzy and she said an apostle but then I had to figure out what that was haha

 

 

I used to game English Civil War, so that’s a familiar concept (so called becuase the standard number was 12), seen on most musketeer figures. ::D:  There’s a lot of obsolete jargon you learn in this hobby.

I understand that things take a long time, that this is happening outside of Reaper HQ, that the team is much smaller, etc...

... but the last time anything was officially communicated in the Kickstarter Updates about "UK Zone" shipping was on August 16th. EU shipping was supposedly 50% done, one month after the July 16th update said EU shipping had begun. So, if that's anything to go on... update in another 6 days?


Then again I also understand that there might not be much to communicate. Still, whatever there is, I don't feel like I should be going on a scavenger hunt for breadcrumbs to know what to expect, and I'm not the only person in the dark. I dunno, I'm getting a bit antsy now.

      Already well over fund target, with 19 days to go

      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):
