Thank you, Law, jchunick, and GriffinTamer, and I apologize for the off-topic post. It was a cool mini (and yes, I thought it looked familiar...).

Getting back to the roof, it looks interesting and I'm curious if there's a hole in the middle (that the Reaper figure might be standing on). I'm mildly concerned...well, not concerned, I guess it's more curiosity again...wondering how many of the KSIV pieces will be post-and-plug pieces, versus magnetic pieces, versus fully-constructed modular pieces that just sit beside or on top of each other like most of the older (pre-KSIII) sets.

Guess I'll find out on March 6!

I believe that mini is a custom painted interpretation of the infamous Zaltar that one of Stefan's fans gave him. (And very nicely done too.)

It's likely one of the nicely painted minis hanging around the studio. Likely less reason for a particular mini and more just convenience of what's within easy reach.

However, it looks like Stefan's mini-me and dog companion will be making more regular appearances for scale purposes.

New Roof(s)! Great News!
I don't know yet what my meager budget will allow me to get in KS4, but a new roof pack would be at the top of my "To Buy" list. I need more roofs for my city and I was really hoping for more roof variety. I'm very excited to see how the finished design looks.

That's a Reaper miniature. It shows up a lot in the pics some of us have posted, it's a popular one.

It was the file name that gave it away. I'm very curious to see how this will work with other pieces.

I had figured that it would be the slate shingles that was the obvious giveaway so I didn't think I was revealing anything in the title :-)

my guess is holes are for removable items.... gargoyles, statues, etc.

I do love this roof though. VERY versatile.
