My Hobby and Blog in January 2017

One day late, but here is a small update to the blog on what was on mind for January

25 Years of Reaper Miniatures!

A wonderful way to celebrate their 25th anniversary, Reaper Miniatures will be making special edition miniatures for each month of 2017. According to Reaperbryan from Reaper Forum:

"I can say that we've taken some of our favorite models from the last 25 years (and some new ones!) and asked the sculptors to lavish them with some TLC, and update some of them with brand new sculpts and re-imagine those heroic (and villainous) characters, making them better than ever!"

For January it will be the Grim Reaper. These models can be purchased individually or they are free if you spend at least $40 for that month. January also sees the release of the Spirit of Autumn model. So now all four seasons have a corresponding spirit. Additional townsfolk models are released in the first two months of 2017. For February, the special anniversary model is Domur, High Mage.

The Positive and Negative of Backing Projects in Kickstarter

Over a year of backing projects on Kickstarter, I have now got to see some of the good and the bad that comes with it. The positives are normally lots of exclusives or discounts for backing a project. For a completionist, this is the way to go while saving a lot of money. The negatives aredelays and unsure quality of the product. Now that I have backed 11 Kickstarters plus 2 Kickstarters post-campaign, I think what I value the most is good communication.
