    Haha! I picked up the exact same one from Canadian Tire last year. I've also some that are not quite so big.They fill up a lot faster than you'd think. I should probably reorganize my older ones. I want one of these, but am no where near a Canadian Tire. Try Walmart or Kmart, but just a word of warning these organizers cost quite a bit of money at full retail. So I suggest checking yard sales in your area.

    Reaper May 2,2016 New Releases

    The mousling will not be limited based on the product number. Items that have numbers in the 15xx are limited time release while one's in the 14xx are special editions but not limited time... Or at least the 14xx one's are not supposed to be limited time, but there are a few old miniatures that don't follow those rules.

    Bone Origins - Polyhedral Dice

    This is a follow up project to complete the Bone Origins set by adding to the D6 a D8 and a D10. Photo of the production ready D6 samples of the D6 dice. Front row: Bone Ivory, Occultist Purple, Nightmare Blue. Back row: Glow in the Dark, Bone Mist, Charred Smoke. We are hoping to add a D8 and D10 to the Bone Origins set. The versatile language of bones on the dice means that these three dice are actually the equivalent to a full 7-dice standard polyhedral dice set: including D4, D12, D20 and D00 dice. Thank you for checking out our new project! Let's make some amazing dice! :D What Are Bone Origins Dice?Bone Origins dice are a unique kind of dice that, instead of using conventional pips and numbers, have their own intuitive language of bone shaped markings. Although unique, the markings have been carefully designed to make the dice super easy to use and read when playing tabletop games. The value for each side is easy to work out. Just add the bones together: small 'dot' bones are worth 1 and each larger bone is worth 2. Like the characters of an alphabet, each symbol on the Bone Origins dice is easily recognisable from any orientation. This makes for a dice that is entirely unique, yet just as easy to use as any regular dice. All while looking like curious bone carved trinkets that could have been picked up on a dungeon crawl in any one our roleplaying adventures! What is This Project For?The first Bone Origins project was hugely popular, but was focused on just the six-sided D6 dice. There was a stretch goal to add the polyhedral dice D8 and D10, and this is something a lot of our backers have expressed a desire for. So we're hoping to now to make these a reality with their own project. This new project is focused entirely on making the D8 and D10 a reality from the very beginning, with all three dice (D6, D8 and D10) available from the start. With the unique way that each Bone Origins dice can be read in a variety of different ways, the D6, D8 and D10 are the equivalent of a standard 7-dice polyhedral set. This includes rolling them as a D4, D6, D8, D10, D12, D00 and even the iconic D20. Some cool minimalist functionality that adds even more to these intriguing dice! The D8 and D10 DiceThe D8 and D10 dice introduce four new sides, for numbers 7 to 10, and can be read the same way as the D6 by counting the bones. The sides for 7, 8, 9 and 10 follow the same rules as the other sides on the original d6. The other 6 sides (1 - 6) on each of the D8 and D10 are the same as the D6. Of particular note, is the 10 symbol on the D10. It is common for D10 dice to be numbered from 0-9 instead of 1-10. To allow for this, the bones for the 10 symbol have been shaped to resemble a circular zero. So you can use the D10 as both kinds: 1-10 or 0-9. Alternatively, reading the 10 side as a zero to use as a D10 numbered from 0 to 9. Stretch Goals Nightmare Blue. Back row: Glow in the Dark, Bone Mist, Charred Smoke. The polyhedral dice shown above are CGI renders – a skill that I am trying to develop! These are for illustration purposes only, and as such may differ slightly from the finished dice.

    Sorry for resurrecting this thread, but I have a question. How big is this model, because I'm buying a carrying case before I splurge and buy the KDM board game.

    I've watched it up to a few episodes ago. I think it's ok. Its not the best show, but it is a lot better than most of the shows on right now.

    Went to the friendly game shop( because it's not local) and left with: 14640 Tundra Stalker, Krgir 60094 Raogru, Charau-Ka Shaman 03614 Eregris Darkfathom Ogre Ripper by Scibor All of which were 1/2 off.
  12. There are less than 3 days left, and the project has surpassed the funding goals. We are around $50 away from $10,000 stretch goal. Here's what happened after the last update. Felt lining add on: The felt is a high quality wool and rayon blend. Note there is not magnets in this photo but the cases will have magnets. We are offering felt lining in 39 different colors, the felt we are using is a high quality wool and rayon blend. This blend of felt is sturdy and thick, unlike your typical craft store felt which can shed and stretch out of shape. To add felt lining to your case just add $3 for a level 1, $5 for a level 2, and $7 for a level 3 to your total pledge. The felt is a high quality wool and rayon blend, not your everyday craft store felt. Wood tiers: I've broken down the different woods into tiers, or 'classes' referencing to those you might play while gaming. All the currently available ones include those seen here: Note the only woods that are not listed here are the spalted tiers Photos: (dice from any photos and videos are not included) Honey Locus (Note there is not magnets in this photo but the cases will have magnets.) Facebook for more photos: If you would like to see more info and photos check out our Facebook page. link: https://www.facebook.com/The-Dungeons-Keep-Hard-Wood-Dice-Cases-610717579092797/?view_public_for=610717579092797 Special Spalted Red Oak Tier Note there is not magnets in this photo but the cases will have magnets. Special Spalted Maple Tier Note there is not magnets in this photo but the cases will have magnets. Process: For starters, I have a local supplier where I can go and hand pick any of the lumber needed for the cases. Next up is getting the rough cut lumber down to size with the planer, after that its onto the CNC table where the rough shape of each box is cut out. Once the CNC is done lots of hand sanding takes place, this smooths the wood to almost perfection and removes any burn marks left by the CNC. All cases get a quick run over on the router table to add a bit of detail to the edges, then depending on the case some will be 'magically' electrified. Finally it's time for magnets to hold the case together, a bit of oiling and polishing then the cases are completed. The oil will help to make the wood water resistant, stabilize and protect the cases, and not to mention it also brings out the beautiful color and grain pattern in each wood. Arcane Class Cases: The lightning effect on some cases, is actually made by quite literally electrifying the top of the cases. Each lightning, or 'Arcane' case will be completely unique due to the type of wood and the natural path the current decides to flow. See the video below on the 'shocking' process, watch as we put 2000 plus volts through the surface of wood leaving electrifying patterns that are sure to impress. Pyrography decorated add on: My fiance came up with this awesome idea, with it we can extend the options for a more personalized dice case. We are currently offering a only select few simply designs for each Level (Size) of case. If all goes well, we will be looking to add some more designs. Pricing for this add on is $15 for a small, $20 for a medium and $25 for large added to your total pledge. Stretch Goals: We are starting off offering our cases in fifteen different woods, with our stretch goals we hope to reach twenty nine woods total! We can't wait to show you how big of an effect even one of the unlock-able add-on options are going to make! Each one will completely take the project to a whole new level.
  13. Just want to give people a heads up about a large spalted oak case being available for $104.

    Well I made yet another Kingdom Death order. This time for a Thief, and a Deserter both of which are encore editions. The ironic thing is both of them have shipped already while my Lonely Tree is still in the pre-shipment phase. I also received my "naked" White Speaker which I ordered last Thursday from Kingdom Death.

    Reaper Online Store Revision

    I have a few suggestions for your website. The accessories page is currently only accessible from the online store page not the default reapermini page. If the accessories page was on the category bar between paints and forums then you will most likely make more sales from people who are new to the site/community and want to get all the stuff from one place as well as all the people who currently use your site and had no idea you had an accessories page. Another suggestion would be to merge the online store page with the default reapermini page, and drop the online store page. It would save time in the long run, because you wouldn't have to add the miniatures to both pages, and you wouldn't have to worry about items not making it from one list to the other. The miniatures such as the Spirit of Winter, and the Elf Ranger Flat were shown in the latest additions on the online store page, but didn't manage to get to the recently released on the reapermini page.
