 I hope we get some more 28mm Anubi warriors.

 

Please, no, I already have an army of them.  Now, models of Bastet the Protector and her warriors would be intriguing.  ::P:

The model on the table is a test print of it, not necessarily a final version, yes?

 

Get enough comments on the topic and it can probably be changed for that relatively small part to sculpt. At least I hope so. If not, it won't be too bad to green-stuff, just annoying to need to do it.

yea, the thing is i tend to feel like i'm the only person that prefers a anatomically correct wing with a propatagium, lol

 

i can green stuff it in, it's just annoying yea,after the concept art had it so i didn't think i'd have to

I just posted this as a request in Comments on the Update 30 where they showed the concept art, anyone else who agrees, please go and post it there as well!

The DD and Hakir have some nice monsters and sculpt.

Hakir: I love how they did the sarcophagus (apart from the skeleton face on the Pharos' sculptures). Tawaret is a little chubby which I find good. 

DD: Hyaenodon WOOHOOO! Spiders are spiders, so good to have and these ones are pretty furry (Tarantula?). I can't wait to see all the psychedelic colours people are going to paint the slug.

oh no, WHY did the sculptor not include the propatagium?! I was so happy that the dragon was going to have anatomically correct wings

 

I know. Thats the first thing I thought too! The sculpt even looks like it had space for them. Given past experiences if we make enough noise and shake those pitchforks Reaper will be "happy" to change the sculpt.

Holding out for better offerings in Hakir. Too terrain heavy (which we were warned of) for me and I don't need a naked hippo lady, even if it is based on a proper deity

 

Give us proper looking heroes and monsters to have fun in Amonkhet

 

On the flip side, Denizens is looking great already, but I'm worried we'll never hit that $2mil+ stretch goal.

I think Reaper has just turned on the "fasten seat belt" sign. 

 

 

This is what I just thought too! 

 

I've been popping on here a couple of times each day this week and seeing nothing new, then today there was 5 pages of comments - and pics of all the new stuff.

 

I'm very happy to see the momentum pick up again! Fingers crossed it's now just awesome reveal after awesome reveal.

 

I'm also very happy to see the new previews, and loving everything up there, the Tombs expansion will push me to get into more desert setting writing, Denizens is looking solid (and who doesn't like a giant slug?).

 

I'd already pledged for one of everything, assuming (correctly it turns out) that I'd be happy with each expansion, but here's to hoping it pulls a few extra dollars out of a few more hesitant backers.

Nah I think pointing out discrepancy between concept art and the print would get you some agreement. I think it'll look better with the propatagium too, even if I still enjoy it currently. Worth a shot I think.

I figure Reaper knows what they are doing. Today’s update was amazing, and it was great to see folks get excited. I hope the energy stays like this the rest of the way!

Tawaret is supposed to be quite rotund. She is a pregnant hippo and guardian of pregnancy and childbirth. If you understand how destructive hippos can be, you'll understand why. I have the coolest statue of her I found at the dollar store of all places. She holds up my historical fiction Egyptian books.

 

I'm glad we're getting uncommon deities. There are at least a dozen 3D print versions of Anubis out there, but not of the others. I'd also really like to see Isis, who is surprisingly rare as a mini. She's kind of the goddess of magic and she is a manipulative being, kind of like Loki. 

 

If you want followers for your deities, check out Crocodile Games.

The Denizens expansion isn't really doing it for me. Completely uninterested. The big snail is a bit cool, but nothing I'm going to fork over $50 for. That said, I think it's looking like it could become a good investment for people that haven't built up a good collection of minis already.

Lost Tombs looks promising. At this point, it's basically looking like it's going to be a huge encounter set. And I really approve of the Tawaret sculpt! The archway looks like it could function as either just a stand alone archway, a temple entrance, or a magical portal. The pillars are looking great, and if we're able to get multiples easily(which I think I saw mentioned), then that's pretty great!

The Anniversary Dragon looks really cool! I like the T-Rex inspired head it has. The whole thing looks like something you'd throw at the party for the final battle of a long campaign!  Personally not a fan of damaged wings, with holes in the webbing and such. But this looks like it might be a dracolich, so it makes more sense.

Lardgulp doesn't do anything for me. Fun enough sculpt, but I have absolutely no use for the mini what so ever.

The KS had a good day yesterday, with almost $30k gained, which is the best they've done since day 5! It helps getting some big dragons out there! Let's hope they can make that into a wave they can ride until the end of the campaign!

Reaper definitely seems to be trying to fix some of their mistakes with this KS. In a handful of stretch goals we'll unlock the entire rest of the Briarwood expansion in one fell swoop.
