    Critical Role official miniatures from Steamforged Games

    I am so glad the Bones PM is now open through September so I don't have to choose between adding there or getting this.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    I forgot theirs started shipping out earlier! There are enough little fiddly pieces that it'll be easy to tell if they're bendy or hard plastic. The FAQs are unhelpful and state the plastic is the same type used in the TWD games and the Dungeon Saga.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    ... ... You know... I did not need that pointed out to me! What a great point! I just added one of the smooth ones each to my pledge!

    Getting to Know You, June 2018

    Other than tag and hide&seek, I think it was the board game Sorry. For video games, it would have been Super Mario Bros, or maybe Frogger (my dad had a side job fixing arcade games so we had a few) OSL and wet blending. And I think I will wait until I have the more basic skills down a little better
  7. My Secret Weapon bag o crap arrived and was full of all the goodies I could hope for. Some of these are suuuper creepy and there wasn’t as many pure sci-fi bases as I was worried about. (The sci-fi bases are also super cool, it’s just not my genre)

    A Bunch of Painted Stuff

    That bone snouted Crocodile guy is sooo creepy. Love them all!
  9. I've been looking for this forever, and it had just fallen off my radar so I hadn't checked Amazon in a while until I saw your post and it was still on sale! Also I bought the expansion. I am very excited. THANKS! ALSO: I just got the notification that my Secret Weapon order (bag o crap) is out for delivery. Is it 5pm yet? I want to go home!

    I watch a lot of various painting videos and tutorials. And a few movie/tv related ones (Honest Trailers comes to mind) but other than that, not really. Unless you count Critical Role. I watch that ALL the time.

    Faces are hard

    You should definitely contact them if it hasn't been too long. I bought some direct and two of them were damaged when i opened them and they mailed me out two replacements free right away, including the shipping.

    I have, let's just say a lot of, Funko Pops all over my office. On my desk I have Pusheen bluetooth speaker and a phone holder shaped like a pair of hands.

    Revarnish or Strip

    I don't know about the chemistry either, but my first round of Bones I spray varnished and they stayed tacky loooong after drying. I had primed and painted with un-thinned brown liner followed by reaper paints so it had to have been the spray varnish (which I can't remember, something cheap I had seen recommended for minis in general and bought before reading up on Bones) I re-varnished with Testors to the group I'm talking about above, and the tackiness did go away but I think the two layers didn't interact well and it peeled away in areas? I'm not sure how to explain it. Basically, a few weeks later I dropped two of the figures from standing and the paint on the edges chipped. I'm pretty clumsy so this happens fairly often with my minis but these are the only ones who chipped like that so I'm blaming the sealant. I haven't tested it since then, I just use brush on sealer now.

    I’m pleased with the extension for the same reason. I’m definitely getting Lost Valley now and maybe another Darkreach! And maybe Argent! (If we see more about it before the new close date)

    I want to know this too!

    Mine is a Squirrel! A standard american gray squirrel. I read a description of the squirrel as a spirit animal in high school and I was pretty much sold.

    Grenadier Frost Giants

    Looking great already! Just a process question: Are you going to paint the hands/arms after you attach them or are you painting them now as you go along and will then attach them?

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I got into painting because of Bones! So I'm in for everything but the SciFi expansion, scenics (Modern and Fantasy), tiles, and the really big ones like DoD, Skeleton/Zombie Dragons and the like. They're so affordable that I don't mind "messing" one up with my paint job, i.e. i'm willing to try and paint anything in Bones form. Also, you can drop them and little pieces don't come flying off. I'm in for about 380~ minis and am at about 1.38 a mini (that may change, I'm waffling back and forth on a few).

    I started a Neighborhood Association after my house got broken into two years ago. I was the first President! Hilariously, I now consider it a nuisance and am a rather lackadaisical member. I didn't realize how drama filled such a group can be. I am now in a full out sitcom level feud with my next door neighbor.

    Yes! I'm finally at a place where I feel like I can handle some added responsibility and I begin foster parent classes next month! I've wanted to be a foster parent pretty much since my parents became foster parents 10 years ago but ya know, life and general insecurity kept me from getting it done.
