Stretch goal and reveals!
Very cool mini, and definitely highly useful IMO! Can you imagine the heroes finding a room filled with treasure, and while they're basically Scrooge McDucking it, half a dozen of these guys start attacking?
Not just a pillar, which is what I was assuming! Definitely another useful piece! I wouldn't mind also having some regular pillars that looked identical, though. Then that could've been swapped out with these once the trap was revealed. Either, I hope it'll be 50mm tall, to work with most tile systems! (Or maybe that would require the holes with the spikes/arrow tips to be smaller?)
A classic bear trap, which was obvious from the silhouette. Definitely a neat and practical piece of scenery! Personally already have some, so I don't need these. But they're a good addition!
UPCOMING STRETCH GOALS
NLM revealed some of the stretch goals we haven't gotten to yet.
Young Cave Dragon($70k):
This little dragon looks very nice! I'm really
liking the general design. The wings are quite tiny though, but I suppose they're vestigial - this being a cave dragon. But really, if we unlock this I might be tempted to give it bigger wings. Not sure what colour I'd paint this though!
Okay, here's a regular Otyugh too! And it's got a very nice, fat belly! This one definitely lives somewhere it gets a lot of food without having to share it.
I think this is a fantastic Otyugh sculpt, and really hope we get it!
100% the Otyugh I'd use if it was kept by humanoids. (For cleaning their sewers or the like.)
Alright, so there are also some that are silhouettes. And this might've not been intentional by NLM(sorry, guys!
), but for three of them there's still some pixel colour variation left. So I did some quick PS magic, and we can see a bit of what these minis will actually look like:
Upper left ???:
This one is still a complete silhouette. Maybe an Umber Hulk? But it looks like the left and right "hands" might be different from each other?
Upper right ???:
Gelatinous Cube! This one was very obvious from its silhouette, though. And I'd be happy to get a new Gelatinous Cube, as the Wizkids one I have is too large to fit into 50mm wide corridors. (Why, Wizkids?!)
Lower left ???:
I assumed this would be a lizard looking creature from the spiky back, and I was right: This looks like a Basilisk to me! But different from the one they already have?
Lower right ???:
I've no idea what creature this is supposed to be, if any, but this cosmic horror should go well with my The Others minis!
