  1. The healing aspect mentioned above just touches on one of the reasons why I have lost interest in the gaming, at least with my long term group. They incessant min/max'ers, and story suffered as a result. When you boil everything down to a race to deplete the opponents HP pool, everything else, even the battle mat tactics, become secondary. I'm still fond of 1st/2nd edition, and the old school feel of 5th, but a lot of the excitement is gone for me.
  2. I've always preferred GW's fantasy over 40k. The above plus the cost of entry has always kept me away, especially when there are so many other great minis to get. The whole AoS thing has helped either.
  3. My go-to recommendation is the Amber Chronicles by Roger Zelazney. Got a lot of miles out of those books.
  4. Also reminiscent of a zombie Archie.
  5. One of these days I'm going to learn how to make foam armor, but until then it'll be sarcastic print tee's for me.
  6. Reminds me of the Colonel from Avatar. Great Work.
  7. I like the different colored eyes.
  8. Great work. I really like the OSL on the sorcerer.
  9. Didn't this attempt spawn a movie franchise? For this I owe you a drink...
  10. Ninja Unicorns vs. Pirate Gorillas. Go!
  11. My first response was going to be Godzilla, because Godzilla always wins. Then I realized I read the question wrong... My second answer depends on what kind of Gorilla. If we're talking some kind of evil Gorilla Grod type, he may win the day, but the Unicorn will ultimately rally and be victorious overall. If we're talking a Tarzan type gorilla, or innocent quasi-cybernetic Amy type gorilla (Michael Crichton's Congo), then my money is on the underdog. This would be a prolonged fight and the bout will go to the final round, but magic horn be damned, the gorilla just has more endurance.
  12. I'm not sure how here reads Figure Painter Magazine, but for those interested, there is a nice write-up on ReaperCon 2016 in the current issue (#44). This issue also contains an interview with Marike Reimer. Worth the read.
  13. Last year I think I had 6 (or maybe 8) in the Painters category. First year jitters... This year I'm bringing 2-3 Painters and 1 Ordinance. I had an idea for a diorama, but to be honest, I don't think I'll have the time to finish it.
  14. I'm pretty sure it's some kind of control mechanism. Like dog training; if he gets out of line, pull that chain.
  15. You're not a number. You're a human being!
