    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I just finished bagging up my Bones 3 order and putting everything in a bin. Bring on Bones 4--and another storage "Band-Aid"...

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Hmm...6-7" Saturday into Sunday. Another like amount scheduled for Tuesday into Wednesday. Then another round for the weekend. "Disgust" does not cover this--but maybe my caffeine intake is coloring my disposition. I think I've shoveled more times this February than I have in the last two years.

    Would that be an Illudium Q-36 Explosive Space Modulator?

    February Bones Black Promotional Mini - Rock Troll

    People keep saying "gouge" and that concerns me. Are we talking about an actual gouge, as in the model was run against something and part of the model was removed. Or are we talking about a gap, where two or more pieces were fitted poorly?

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    A couple inches Sunday. Another couple today. Another 1/2 inch expected by the late night. Winter, you are getting on my nerves. My poor back can't keep up like it once could. I honestly don't remember the last time it snowed this frequently over the course of a winter. It's been awhile.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I'm guessing it's not. It seems like someone/some group that has an axe to grind or just too much free time and no idea on how to fill it (like painting minis from the minis company that he/she/they support(s), or trying to come up with new product ideas for any such preferred company). I'm not into conspiracy theories, but I find the timing of the sudden "issues" and the release of Bones Black to be curious. Not necessarily causal, but curious.

    From 2009 (we don't get these that often): That's my little Saturn (2003-2014) in front of my wife's little Saturn (2008-2016). The driveway has a tendency to drift. Note that it is not nearly so bad across the street.

    You have my sympathies, GW. We had been dealing with something similar (if less extreme) from the youngest. It took her quite some time to get her head together enough to realize that her mother and I weren't actually her enemies, and that her ex-husband and her most recent "man" (I use quotes because I seriously do not believe it qualifies as a human being) may have been leading her down incorrect paths. I think she's apologized to her mother for some of the things she said about us/did to us. But it's been a long four years since it all started. I hope your son comes around sooner.

    Adventuring Alice

    I hate butting in here, 'cuz I've absolutely no skill related to anything going on here, but... Could you not "slice" her up a bit to reduce the number of supports needed, or does that needlessly complicate things? I apologize if you addressed that somewhere and I missed it. Y'know, I'm pretty sure I'd buy one of her if she ever made it to market.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Probably the Thrasher Snail (Fan Favorites) or "dino dudes" (Lost Valley). I just honestly can't envision ever using them in a game. There were a lot of minis that came with a set that don't inspire me to put a brush to them. Fan Favorites was a tough choice on whether or not to add it on, but the numbers finally broke into the "purchase" category. I feel I need to clarify that all are fine minis from a sculpting standpoint, but not every mini will click with everyone.

    I just cribbed these out of a Google cache and dropped them into one PNG image. I would think (but could not guaranty) that any individual image would be small enough that you could house it in your sig without issue.

    Miniature tracking software?

    Oooh...I hadn't even thought about actions, age, or social status. My spreadsheet is fail. Seriously, though, I admire your dedication and determination! That's going to be amazing when you finish. The thing that usually gets me is that I keep changing my keywords..."fighter" here but "warrior" there. Silly stuff like that.

    Miniature tracking software?

    I actually break this down in my spreadsheet into things like Armor, Weapons, Items, etc. I also try to ID a race for the miniatures, so if I'm looking for an undead critter or construct I can sort by that as well.

    You just have to look. Some time ago, we picked up a shirt for our granddaughter that said, "Today I want to be a princess dinosaur!" at Sam's Club. You might also try making some outfits if you're crafty/sewy. I know we found some fabrics at JoAnn's and the wife mentioned an online shop called Raspberry Creek.

    "The River" has smaller sized bags in decent quantity. I've been thinking about picking some up along with some other hobby supplies.

    I'm thinking about those wraiths. But there are a lot of good choices.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Another 4"+ expected today, and more throughout the rest of the week. After a nice glazing of ice, of course. Luckily, I have more vacation time than I can shake a stick at (mostly because taking time off is a huge hassle--and I'll likely pay for it in the long run). All the local schools are closed, even the universities. When the universities close, that's when I start thinking about just how badly I "need" to get into work.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I have been up for hours. I have accomplished nothing (other than reading the forum). I've got at least two miniatures to paint in the next to weeks, and several more I'd like to put the finishing touches on. So what do I do? Watch re-runs of shows I never much cared for in the first place!

    Giant Centipede ( Toob Animal) by Glitterwolf

    I'm a legend in my own mind! (Or I've just seen too many action movies. Well, maybe both.)

    I should start re-reading some of them. Especially with the long down-time we've had. But I was fortunate enough to get The Aeronaut's Windlass and Furies of Calderon for Christmas. And JB was kind enough to put a Christmas Eve story out there on his website.
