With that in mind I think the scarab-folk could be fun like the bee-folk but it will depend on the sculpts. The sketches are too busy with too many small details in my opinion. I hope they come out a bit more simplified looking in the renders. But really I also have something of a soft spot for merchants on packbeasts so that may be influencing me.

Mutated insect-folks may be causing me to adjust my wasteland thoughts for my Twilight 49 project.

Yeah I'm not a huge fan of that precedent.  

But I do like flaming skeletons!

And even though I'd like to see more Hobgoblins in Bonesium, I sort of want them less after all this.

 

Yah more like the 4 they made recently & all for thou. 4 is just not enough for a common low level enemy.

From the latest reveals I really love the Denizens. Definitely getting this one. Part 1 was a great appetizer for it, Part 3 is kind of meh (compared to other two), although I am really glad of the extra orcs that will go with the ones from add-on I am also getting. Also some nice rare minis, but ones But part 2 is truly outstanding. Wyverns, trolls, yeti, lizard, gargoyle, bathalian. Those are definitely worth more than $50 in my eyes. So hands down the best expansion IMHO. 

The scarab folk also look fantastic. Probably the one set I am most looking forward to get to retail. Mummy king and adventurers are also something that I will probably purchase in retail. 

Vandorendra would be also great to have.

Just used the calculator.

 

I have all $325 of my pledge accounted for. All I have managed to save up since I knew it was coming in this spring and have not used for support for Ukraine.

 

I will also need to add $65 to get all the stuff that I still want in pledge manager. Might squeeze some of that to KS.

Hopefully, there will be some more great stuff unlocked. I would not mind adding some more funds later this year.

This last week has been fantastic. I'm really loving all of the new unlocks and reveals. The lighthouse is cool, I just love it and might even throw it into a Spelljammer adventure. Dragons so far are awesome even if there aren't as many as in Bones V. Sullenhall is great and I love the gaint skeleton. I'm pledging for Hakir for the scarabfolk  because I need more strange minis in my collection. Denizens is fascinating. Bairwood is whimsy and I love it.  Plus making some for the more popular sculpts like the fire newts was a welcome surprise. 

Since this is my first KS I was a bit worried when it was a bit more of a crawl but now it is really picking up. I'm hoping we hit 2mil by the end of it. I'm also hoping for extras of the Green Griffin patrons like what was teased.

I'm really excited to see where this ends tomorrow. It seems like Ron teased a Fan Favorites type expansion a bit on last night's stream, but who knows. Bones V was my first, and I found a ton of cool stuff in there. I think my number one favorite character model in the entire Kickstarter was the "not Firbolg" Ranger. That dude is awesome. I don't have so many boxes of plastic that this KS seems meh to me, which I'm grateful for. I can't imagine following a Kickstarter just to be grumpy. Life's too short. 

Models I'm most excited for this time around:

Core Set: Bog Shambler, Gnomes, Mudmen, Firenewts, Toil & Trouble, Dawn Seekers

Expansions:

Sullenhall - Love the terrain for Frostgrave! And I dig skellies

Hakir - Scarab Guys like everyone else and the Female Barbarian. I really liked the Landsknecht from the Bones V Fan Favorites, this hits similar for me.

Denizens - That slug is awesome, and super excited for Norkers!

Briarwood - Redcaps are my favorites here. Would love an add on of 6 different poses of these guys! Arboreal Defender is an awesome model.

Add Ons: Orcs, Bugbears, & Gnolls! Would be happy to see Hobgoblins as well, why not! Also love the Legendary Tales so far. I really liked the Bones V encounters and have been looking forward to more like that. I had no interest in a lighthouse, thought the memes were fun and built up some enthusiasm, but couldn't imagine buying it. (I didn't buy the ship), but the artist sketch sold me. Love the idea of it being a watchtower and now I'm in for it. 

I bought a few of the Bones V dragons, and like them, but I"m not a big dragon guy so am not sure what I'll end up with there. I really like the 30th Anniversary one so by the time the Pledge Manager closes, I'm sure I'll have added it.

All in all, a ton of fun new models to add to my hobby corner. Thanks Reaper!

I’d speculate that it’s because they’re only putting one extra of the spellcaster type and then 2 each of the melee types in the extras. Generally, casters are fewer in number in combat scenarios, and he might be more plastic than the rest of them based on the size of his head and the staff, etc.

I don't know if this has been answered anywhere before, but here goes:-

 

In the core set there are four different Firenewts, whereas in the Extras it is showing seven firenewts, (ie 2 of each of three scuplts and only one of the fourth). Any ideas as to if this is intentional?

The spellcaster is the "leader"

 

They did the same thing with the town guard extras.

And sorta with the wolf pack - two of each of the wolves, and a Warg.

Yep!  It is the one I sculpted during RVE.  Ron called me asking if it was still available, saying the he couldn't believe they were doing this. LOL.  Pics:

(Ignore the clear flight stand; that is just what I had; I don't know what reaper will use.)

That is such a great Flumph!  Way better than other versions.  Really nice work.  A classic.

So close to the big dragon! With 33 hours to go, things are looking very exciting! Very keen to see if there are anymore surprises around the corner (I'm looking at you butcher pigs!)

 

Now that I'm pretty much in for everything, the question is, how much more will Reaper be able to get out of me? 

 

@TaleSpinner I'm loving both your sculpts. I had no idea what a flumph was until today, but now I do, I'm a happier person for it. I can't wait to pop it in my dungeons to help weary adventures, or to point out the obvious clues that I'm signposting for them that they're missing.

The Giant Lizard is mine as well, commissioned by Ron before Christmas.  I had fun with that one (base is 50mm):

Interestingly the close up of the flumph makes me want it more while the lizard close up reduced my interest in it. I think it may have to do with the happy face the flumph is making. The lizard throat is not really appealing to me. From the the side the face does look like a synapsid more than a lizard. So that is nice. Would you mind if I asked for the inspirations behind the lizard sculpt?
