    What I don't get: Chinese New Year isn't a surprise, it happens every year at roughly the same time. They could have told us they wouldn't make it when they didn't have their stuff on a ship in  January/February.

    Instead we got fluff updates with boxart.

     

    Has someone here bought the other CR Minis they offered? Like the winged Vax? How's the quality of those? I thought the 3D printed Models and the resin masters looked quite good, but the production pieces look kinda crappy, even the "improved" ones.

     

    I've got the Winger Vax, and I think he looks pretty good. While, I wouldn't say he's not not glossy, he's certainly not shiny enough to have caused the issues in the pictures they posted in the update. I'm worried its just bad minis versus bad photos.

    I’m not sure I understand the different between historical wargame and wargame scatter.

     

    Maybe all of the "scatter" will be just items that look damaged, or broken and "historical wargame" will all be intact/good repair pieces?

     

    Hard to tell though

    I saw that pic too.

    Will need to keep an eye on how common that is once more Bones Black minis get into the hands of the public.

    I would not expect that to be common. I've been testing the durability by hand, you can clearly tell the material isn't as resilient as normal bones, but it's not nearly as fragile as something like a GW plastic mini. 

     

    The material feels very similar (durability wise) to what a lot of the bigger board game companies are putting out, CMON or Monolith as examples. It should survive a couple drops and normal wear and tear but if you wanted to break it you could easily find a way to.

     

    My owlbear and troll fell from the very top of a 6 foot book case, twice, with no damage (darn cat!) so they're still pretty sturdy.

    Wife's is usually, "We didn't really have the money for that right now." "But honey, I paid for it when we did have money!"

     

    I like to think of KS products as gifts for Future Broke Me.

     

    They arrive when I'm super broke and I'm like, "good thinking ahead Amanda!, no you have something to do while you stay at home and save money!"

    What exactly does this have that the Hobby Holder doesn’t?

     

    I was thinking that too. I can rotate minis on my hobby holder and use both bottle caps and corks if I want. Plus is that neato arm for resting my finger or brush on. And you can use it in a couple of different configurations. 

     

    Plus, the hobby holder has lots of fun colors! (completely irrelevant to its use as a handle, but I like it)

    Yeah I know the core set will be the classic PVC formula but I thought that they were adding some kind of color to so that they will not be the same white color.  There was some kind of "glow" or translucence created by the white bones. 

    If you watch the unboxing all the pieces are slightly gray and I just wasn't sure if all the core sets are that way or not.   

     

    Oooh! I hope so!

    Do you decorate for holidays? Which ones?

     

    Share pictures of fun decor if you have them!

     

    Yes! Halloween and Christmas are the big ones. I live in a place with limited storage right now so I'm confined to like one big plastic tote box of decorations for each holiday. My next place absolutely must have either a storage attic, or a garage so I can get more stuff

    Wednesday, September 26: What is your favorite cooked vegetable? Do you have a recipe that you enjoy more than others?

    Corn (see below!), and Brussel sprouts, but sauteed in pan with seasoning and maybe some bacon, not boiled (eww)

    Con on the cob.

    Although to be honest, there aren't really very many veggies that I don't like.

    Seconded. I don't care if it is a grain, I grew up with it in the vegetable section of the food chart. 

     

    Corn on the cob - with the caveat that I prefer it grilled.

    What is the funniest joke you know by heart?

    Me: I have a business

    Other: What's your business?

    Me: I put roofs on clock towers

    Other: How is business?

    Me: Pretty good, I'm working overtime.

    Monday, September 24: How many brushes do you own? Which ones are your favorites?

    I have a few handfuls of cheapo hobby lobby sold in packs ones, the ones that came with the LTPKs, and some synthetic Rosemary and Co Elcipse series (a filbert, round 1 and 2, and a few bigger ones for base coating terrain) and some Rosemary and Co, Series 33, in 0, 2/0, 1, and 2. My favorite is the Series 33 size 0.

    Speaking of soup... 

     

    Thursday, September 13: Do you carry with you, at all times, tools sufficient to open a can of soup? (Or other canned goods)

     

     

    My bag in my car has a manual can opener and my purse has one of those punch top/bottle opener combo things (mostly because when I splurge on a soda, I prefer those in a glass bottle)

     

    I really should get a leatherman. I watched a video a while ago where someone demonstrated that you could open a can of soup just with a sidewalk curb by rubbing one section of the lip on it over and over again until you broke the seam. Time consuming I suppose but it could work!

    This question come from @Crowley

     

    Wednesday, September 12: What sort of supplies do you keep stocked for disaster situations?

     

    I really need more. I have the basics at my house: lots of candles, flashlight, some coleman fuel cans and little grill to go over it so I can boil water, ramen, granola bars, peanut butter, TP, paper towels; small things of soap and the like. I also have a bag in my car with a change of clothes, some basic camping gear, water bottle, first aid kit and such. I really need a place to store water specifically, right now I just hope I have enough warning to fill up all my pitchers and sinks.
