  1. I think that's one of mine - the one I got from the Kickstarter was messed up (two left legs, or something), and I never actually followed up with Reaper about it (in part because by the time I figured it out, it had been months since fulfillment was complete). I've got another one (one of my FLGS had it on their Deep Discount table at one point), so I took some of the bits I was unlikely to use and tossed them in the box, if I remember (hey, that was a long time ago now, in me-memorytime...).

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    The only thing better than one giant dinosaur mini is two giant dinosaur minis...

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Do you want to paint a caribou? more seriously I'm not at all adverse to the caribou-packing nature - I loved that bit of the concept art. But I'm definitely in the "above all else, it should be awesome" - if it's too difficult to sculpt in a way that makes it useful in terms of assembly, or causes too high of a failure rate coming out of the molds, or whatever - sadly, the caribou is less important, to me, than the ABCs - Always Be Cunning.
  5. The swords look a lot (in the sculpt and in the concept art) like Pappenheimer rapiers - a German transitional/military rapier from the early(ish) 17th century that (frequently) featured a more stout cut-and-thrust blade than what we classically think of as a "rapier blade". They also featured two pierced steel plates in the guard - lighter than later cup-hilt rapiers from Spain and Portugal, but nearly as protective.
  6. The box is away!

    Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

    ISTR that Kev lives a significant enough (by European standards*) distance away from the main Hasslefree facilities that it would be inconvenient for him to routinely make the trip, or something? Also, I'm not sure what his exact employment status with Hasslefree is - I'm pretty sure it is "most favored freelance sculptor" not an actual company employee who can be re-tasked when necessary, but I'm not certain. *"North Americans think a hundred years is a long time. Europeans think a hundred miles is a long distance."
  8. Box is on its way to Guindyloo
  9. Stuff was Taken! Terminators and tools! Extra Grey Knight weapons to arm some of my other terminators with - and a set of lightning claws for an old metal terminator that I only can find one claw for. There's also a couple of jump-pack space marines that were already assembled that got put on the pile last minute (no pics) because I can't find a good container for them to go in, and plastics break. The Rest - An old Citadel chaos knight, some Bonesium, the cart I haven't been able to get ahold of from Wizkids, (the terminators and stuff in a bag), three of the GW Lord of the Rings elves, and a Girl and her (very big) Kitty. OH, and a book That I've actually wanted for some time - so into the gaming reference library it goes! Stuff got put in! But you don't get to see what! I did break down a bunch of stuff that was on sprues, so there's quite a bit of space freed up - I didn't fill *all* of it, but I did put in a bit more than I took. The box should either go out today or Monday - I'm guessing Monday, actually, because I think it should probably get replaced - it's kinda beat up, and covered in enough shipping addresses that it should get a new one.

    OneBoot Experiments with SHINY Paints!

    One Boot is doing the universe - or at least the painters of the universe - or maybe just the painters of the Reaper Forums... okay, the painters of the Reaper Forums who use metallic paints and not NMM - well... maybe... (seriously, this thread is so cool)
  12. And again, only here!

    Solo Teaser/Trailer

    The Falcon has undergone a lot of retrofits and modifications over the years - as Han himself says "I've added some special modifications myself." She's also carrying single-barreled cannons in the dorsal and ventral gun wells, instead of the quad-lasers we see in A New Hope, and, well, the insides are a lot less... grungy... than we see her a decade or so later.

    Yeah - last I knew, they weren't going to re-cast Princess Leia Organa any time soon. And when they do, they've got a much better option than Emilia Clarke (although Clarke might well do a fine job of it) - Millie Bobby Brown wants to play young Organa, and she is actually a strikingly good likeness of a young Carrie Fisher -
