Ants understand two numbers: 1 and 1000.
1 means its the queen, or a large threat/food source. 
1000 is a big enough chunk of the hive to notice.  (or an attacking ant army)

all other numbers are unimportant.

anyway I'm getting 2 packs of ants.

Despite everyone else saying similar variations, it's this wording that's making me reconsider just getting one extra set.  I normally don't field more than a dozen creatures at once, for sanity.  But maybe ants are worth it...  

 

Lately if I have tons of low level monsters, I just make a basic assumption about them and BS my way through it. Fling a literal handful of zombie wolf figures (okay a pile of skeletons, but whatever) at the group's 14th level cleric - assume he'll deal with it or else I'll take a fist full of d20s to see if I hit (just going with >10), and 1d6 per hit. It matters for legitimate monsters. Meeehhh.... can simplify it.

 

It is a field full of Important Monsters that is trouble. A field full of cannon fodder is dealt with by fist-full 😄

We have a Queen, we have workers…. Now if only we only get some bigger soldier ants…. I know, greedy! 🐜 


You could buy a bag of smaller toy ants to be the workers, and make these the soldiers.

Those wyverens are really nice. My kids will love them in 2 years. Dwellers might be my first miniatures of the campaign. Im hoping they do breakouts at some point because I'd be in for the familiars and mongrelfolk, too.

 

That said, I will (2x) any paint offered, instantly.

 

With models of basically anything available to me in my collection already (justifying re-purchases is tough - wyverns made the cut!), or with the click of a button, I'm really looking for pieces by my favorite artists.  That, and the flavorful encounters. Those types of sets will always draw me in, but we haven't really seen any yet this time around.

 

Still, I'm having fun watching the new releases for those newer to the hobby - Its good stuff!

I just realized that some of the reveal goals have changed value.

Check 5/5 Briarwood, for example. It's now $1,465,000 instead of 1.9m.

That's pretty huge. It also suggests Reaper is tweaking things more than realized to try to increase hype and push value, getting later things unlocked too.

 

It's interesting to me because I genuinely do have extra budgeted money that I would like to spend here... But nothing else I want currently to up my pledge. I'm in for Core, Vale, and Ants. And don't get me wrong, I do love several parts of the other things, but I also don't need more zombies or bar stuff. (I literally crafted my own whole bar terrain since I wrote an adventure set in one.)

 

Burning through these revealed expansions and putting more options on the board should lead to more pledging from people like me. Did any other values change?

In for $50 for the Briarwood as there's lots in there that I'd enjoy painting. Green Griffin is close. Have to think about that one. I've got a bunch of boxes of Tabletop Plus that I've yet to paint. Core set is halfway to value for me.

If I could, I'd be backing everything that has been shown on the Kickstarter (minus Chibis). This time around, I'm only backing the core and the green Griffin before the end of the month. Normally, I back everything I want up front in order to help unlock as many stretch goals as I can. I am currently not working, I have something going on, (may be heart issues) and I am on medical leave at this time. I hope to expand my order during the pledge manager over the next year or however much time they give us.

If you can't wait for the familiars, some of their cousins are actually on the reaper website now in Bones USA.

Oh, I have "all the things."  In bones and metal. I really like painting animals, and have done entire threads of reaper animal familiars and companions. I was thinking of doing another bender this year, actually, so I'll need to re-up.
