I didn't see July releases, I assume they're busy with the KS.

The August freeby (with $40 purchase) shows an Elven Veterinarian preparing to give a sick dragon a nose swab. A useful figure for a great many encounters.

Maybe it's the paint job but I'm getting an anime feel from that.

Maybe it's because she has Crayon Shin-chan/Hokuto no Ken eyebrows?

No matter where you go, the eyebrows follow you.

Paintjob isn't helping, but the scultping is off on that head. Eyes should be direct middle of the head, this one has those giant eyebrows in the middle and it's pushed the eyes and nose and mouth too far down on the face. Even with that, it's a pretty great model and I'm a sucker for Elves with long hair in simple ponytails

Her eyebrows are larger and thicker than her fingers.

Games Workshop are not your friends. They are not a small dev trying their best. They are a multibillion dollar company making calculated decisions about how many costs they can cut, how lazy they can be about relases, and how much they can paywall. They will do it again. Stop giving them money for this.

they're actually not if you zoom in. The painter just lined the eyebrows with liner that's about as thick as the actual eyebrow.

Reaper has a more normal release this month. Well normal in that miniatures are coming out, but hardly "normal" if that makes sense.

In the last 10 years D&D has radically increased the number of player races, moving from the traditional offerings of: humans, short humans, short hairy humans, other shorter hairier humans, slightly shorter humans with slightly pointed ears, shorter humans with pointer ears and half orcs, to embrace a wide range of animal hybrids and other more alien races.

Which of course means, more miniatures to sell!

(10 new player races, each with a dozen classes to choose from=KA-CHING!)




First off a bunch of catfolk fighter and rogue types, the sort of figures we've all seen a dozen times, but now with fur!



I'm gonna give her a bunch of charm spells so she has like a small army of mind-controlled humans, so she can be Crazy Human Catlady.



Same guys again, now with more scales!


Hisssss, hisssss, hisssss!
Hisssss, hisssss, hisssss!
Hiss, hiss, hiss, hiss, hiss, hiss!
Hisssss, hisssss, hisssss!


Dragonfolk Bards never made it big with human audiences.




I've not idea what a Rune Wight is, I'm assuming some kind of undead variant, maybe Norse themed?


Regardless if they prove to be a problem these Rune Wight Hunters will soon make short work of them.



And finally last month's freeby


Damras Deveril, royal papetier is among the most powerful men in the kingdom as he alone controls the supply of white gold needed for the continued smooth operation of the nation's privies and water closets.

Those Rune Wrights and their hunters look.... oddly spindly.


I do like the guy with reading in a Brian Blessed voice though. Looks a bit more like a wise man than a typical "wizard" type.

September's freeby (with $40) is Fillyjonk the Hellborn Rogue.

Normally I'd make a joke here but honestly after Fillyjonk I think anything would be redundant. Don't gild the lily and all that.

Lol, thanks for the vindication. After staring at it, it was the best way I could describe it! The upper arms and legs feel like they're the back whereas the lower parts are the front... plus the Exorcist head twist.

Big release for Reapercon.

https://www.reapermini.com/newreleases

First off more pirates than you can shake a bilge hook at.

Assuming you had a bilge hook.

And wanted to shake it.

The point being you wouldn't be able to.

On account of there being pirates.

Lots of them.



For starters there are some modular pirates, which is very cool. Except there's no pictures showing what the options are. Which is not a good way to sell a modular kit.



Dragony pirate. He can also be Wyvernfolk Pirate or even a Lizardman Pirate though that may require some conversion.



Gnoll pirate, who can also serve as a werewolf pirate or even a jackelwere pirate with some work.




Zombie pirates. Who can also meet your need for ghoul pirates or even wight pirates in a pinch.



Champion of some elder god I can't be bother to try and spell. Point being crab mutant armored dude from the deeps.



I love miniatures that tell a story. Like this one. I have no idea what that story is, but it's certainly there.





These guys are all already sold out. Just more evidence that sexy miniatures sell.



Dwarf sausage maker. Note the missing fingertips.
I feel like there's a ribald joke to made here but I just can't put my finger on it.




Somewhere someone just found the perfect model for their PC. And I salute you.



This one, this one I genuinely want.



Piranha crabs. Worth it just for the name.



This is a great bit of terrain for a tavern. Provided your pirate tavern is pirate themed. And called the Drunken Mermaid.



Piratey terrain set for $40. With a small boat, a bar, barrels etc, this is actually pretty tempting.



The raft from Watchmen. The pirate comic inside Watchmen that is. You remember the one I'm talking about right? The one the kid was reading at the newsstand that mirrored the themes of the main story till the final kicker? The one the dude makes out of wreckage and a dead shark? Yeah. That one. Now you can have it in unlicensed miniature form!



I really have no words. Someone will pay $30 for this. In fact enough several someones already have since it's currently sold out.

And on the non-pirate side...



Evil armored dude with questionable anatomy, because sometimes you have to go with the classics.



Skyclad female archers.



Female Gnome Rogue, cause I mean sure, there much be some combination of common fantasy tropes they've not covered yet right?



Gisele the Sorceress, another example of just playing the classics. Play down the stars and you've got a princess, maid of honor, whatever.

And that's September, or should we call it... Piratevember!

No. We probably should not.

Swashbuckember?

Skurvember?

We'll work on it.

The crabs are something I actually need bad enough that I'll probably already print some before Reaper's get here.

The modular pirates look like they all had the same torso and legs, so probably the 6 arms are the modular parts. Question is will it come with 6 arms and 3 bodies or do a GW and have numbers that don’t work together.

Or will it be 1 body with 3 sets of arms and heads... which would really be pulling a GW.

Completely different rules for each combination with one version being optimal, which in 3 months time will get nerfed and one of the other combos is best. The new bones is also antimagnetic so you cannot magnetize the parts for a simple swap.
