    Graveyard Expansion : Graveyard Golem & Grave Minions

    Your stone all looks great! Do you mind giving us some guidelines on how you did it?

    Oathsworn Fur and Feathers

    My courier delivered mine last week Thursday. Thanks Lovejoy, they are wonderful! But.. I have enough adorable anthro minis now, so you can stop making them ok? Every time you make more I have to buy them, and we both don't want that, do we?

    Mine is at the courier in the UK, should be on the way down to South Africa sometime today.

    Reaper Bones 3: US Zone Complete

    My pledge was delivered on Friday! Haven't had time to go through it all, but Mal'drakar was all there. Thanks Reaper and crew!

    Reaper Bones 3: US Zone Complete

    Wave 1, still waiting for a notification, but... I am in South Africa, so will still be waiting a long time to get mine even after they ship

    Dark Souls board game from Steamforged

    Weird, my copy arrived in a box that was exactly the size of the game box. They must have had issues with their shipping supplies I've played two games, one with 3 players and the second with 4. From those two I can say that it plays quite well. It is VERY true to Dark Souls, which is going to determine if you enjoy it or not. Basic enemies can and will kill you if you make a mistake, or luck turns against you. Bosses are by far the high point of the game, learning their attack patterns is rewarding when you get it right. One issue I have seen is that the most basic rooms get pointlessly easy once a few upgrades are gained, but you have to run through them every time you die and respawn. Still looking forward to playing it more; interestingly I suspect it will work quite well single player, and a campaign might be fun to play through.

    Sir ForScale Has a Bad Day

    Silly Sir ForScale, you should not go to Dark Souls. Unless you are prepared to die... and die... and die... Looks great though!

    Science Fiction RPGs?

    For what its worth, Fantasy Flight's Star Wars RPG is good. Like really, really good. Don't let the weird dice be a detractor, they mean every roll has a 3-axis resolution (success/fail, advantage/disadvantage, and triumph/despair) which is just enough meat to let even new players quickly grasp narrative gaming and engage with the story. I have played in a campaign of WotC's d20 Future, which... well. Lets just say that porting D&D 3rd edition to sci-fi was awkward and leave it at that. Still was a great campaign though, and had the side effect of teaching me that ignoring rules sometimes to improve fun is important. Eclipse Phase by Posthuman Studios is an excellent RPG, though all-in on exploring transhuman weirdness. The PDFs can be legally obtained for free online, as well. Not a light system, but there is nothing else which covers "hard" sci-fi as thoroughly as it does. I also have to point out that the (now defunct, but rulebooks are available) Fantasy Flight Warhammer 40k RPG line is technically sci-fi. They nailed the grimdark, and while the system can get in its own way at times it was rather decent.

    Burrows and Badgers: New Blood

    Mine is coming to South Africa via a third-party courier after arriving at their UK depot on Monday. I no longer trust the SA national post service with models (haven't lost anything yet, but have waited months for things to arrive before ) Should be here soon though!

    Bones Shadow Dragon (77108) as Blue Dragon

    It looks very cool. How did you end up using the interference paint? Just as an upper-surfaces highlight?

    Savage Hordes II, Mierce Miniature

    Thanks for the help Orlando! Wow, that is featherweight. They always look imposing enough that I expected them to be dense, but I guess not. Hurray, cheap shipping for me then.

    Savage Hordes II, Mierce Miniature

    A question to people who have already gotten things from Mierce: How heavy are Mierce resin models? I've only worked with Bones and PP "restic" models thus far, and both materials are fairly heavy. I'm getting mine shipped to South Africa via a third party courier to avoid the very unreliable local postal service, and was wondering how much things were going to weigh. Anyone have these models and can give me a ballpark on weights? Crom of Carn Wrach, War-Drune on Foot Cæna, Slēanbera Scecchus, Servile Fiend of Dis Aradae Mawr, Pencawrdraig of Dugadw
  14. Got mine! Not risking SA's ailing postal service, I sprang for a specialist courier. Jo was great in the last-minute shuffling of addresses to make that happen, yay! More minis to paint, and terrain for Malifaux...

    Wyrd Razorspine Rattler

    You have managed to get a great finish on the Rattler! It looks great. I have an unfinished one sitting on my desk right now. Like you, I went with washes, but despite the textured scales they aren't defined enough to make the job as easy as it looks. Yours is so inspiring though, I should get mine finished up.
