Yeah, I spoke with them about it at Gencon. They told several of us that they are expecting the free stretch goals to be tied to $500 and up...

I will have to come up with a grand new plot to give my wife happiness derived amnesia regarding this one. It should probably involve her favorite restaurant and wine... I need to get this figured out asap!

My players rue the day I bought "Dragon Mountain". Ever since they give every creature a bit more respect. You never know when the GM will decide that this group is crafty...

@LordDust

Yeah, I'm lucky; my wife was the one who got me back into roleplaying so I don't usually have to convince her of anything, but she's been unusually cautious about going hog-wild so has been the voice of reason... but she confessed the other day to me that she really wants to build a town so Miniature Building Authority's Castle Kickstarter will be a given for us/her.

I think I'm going to have to get going on some of my mods and finish them so I can sell them to finance this new habit.

Oh, and I just got my Reaper Bones ebay pkg. in today. I missed the 1st Kickstarter and was forced to buy off ebay. I'm happy with the auction I found and was able to get the core 240 Vampire set, plus a bunch of the big guys like C'thulu, Nethramaul, Ebonwrath, the Clockwork dragon, the giant skeleton and several more extras.

I'm in on the the 2nd one for the core $100, plus almost all the bonuses (minus the case which I heard from the 1st KS that it's crap) and expansion sets #1 and #2.

I have a lot of catching up to you guys who've been collecting for 10 years or more, ya know ;-)

Here's a Reaper skeleton rising out of the ground, which could work well for the pool: www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Dark%20Heaven%20Legends/a-z/02043

@jchunick - The Wargames Factory Skeles actually have a base bit that lets you do something very similar with their skeles. I believe they have two per sprue in there, so there are enough to do several that way if you like, plus you can then select the head style (helmeted, gaping jaw, or standard are the ones that I recall without looking) and even choose to have them using a weapon in hand to lever themselves up.

I wasn't sure I would like having to assemble the minis, but the options for posing and weapons actually make it pretty cool.

Here's another take on making the CoS inserts, no paint, no resin needed - just hot glue:

@Quorthon13

Those look fantastic!

I recently picked up some resin to try that as I'm finding that the liquid effects water is hardening and warping quite a bit. I think it's due to the slow loss of water from it and the fact it's not supported or stuck to anything.

Very nice green goo pool, dungeonmastermark. That looks superb!

Would you care to elaborate how you made it?... is that resin or liquid effects water?

Fantastic! Provides a lot of flexibility for the pool.
How did you put the color in the glue?

I do like the colored glue stick idea, I may have to steal that. I do still want to do something using water effects, but given the shrinkage issue it would likely have to be a permanent item instead of an insert.

They sell colored glue sticks. I have also heard of people melting crayons and mixing them with the hot glue in a mold to make their own. I would be prepared to play around with ratios and methods a bit if you go that route. Also, take care, that stuff can give some decent burns.

I bought colored glue sticks on amazon.... Heres an example:

http://www.amazon.com/FPC-All-Color-Sticks-12-Pack/dp/B00178QQGG/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1389069938&s

those are the small size, make sure you buy the right size for your glue gun (whether it is large or small)

warning though - its a lot quicker to fill up the CoS with the large glue sticks though

for the black - i got large black glue sticks

for the orange/yellow - i filled up the CoS with large clear/amber glue sticks, then did the colors on top with the small glue sticks

I have both size glue guns

I like this alot. I think I'm going to give it a go. I do have resin, and am going to try that for some more complex effects, but the glue gun colors are pretty nice. I didn't know they came in colors.
