  1. So Saturday (yesterday) morning I finished painting Action Jackson. https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/action/latest/80023 Which is a mini I've been wanting to paint for awhile. It just so happens that Saturday afternoon is when my D&D Adventure League group meets, so before I left I packed up my finished mini to show off and get a few tips from the group's other painters. For the record it was dry before I packed it up. For the last few weeks I've been running our third table; I'm currently doing Horde of the Dragon Queen. During the session the cleric at my table conjured a spiritual weapon. Like a lot of my players he's fairly new so he hasn't bought any minis yet for his PC's so he didn't have anything to represent his conjured weapon either. So when he conjured his spiritual weapon I placed Action Jackson on the field which my players loved. Turns out his spiritual weapon was one of the party's heavy hitters. Which made the figure all the more fun to have on the field. I know I can't be the only one who paints something and thinks they'll never get to use it and is proven wrong. Has anyone else been able to use Chronoscope miniatures in and odd or mismatched RPG setting? Though I love this miniature it certainly doesn't belong in a 5e game, but I'm glad I could use him to comedic effect.
  2. A while ago a friend recommended I try painting with cheap Wal-Mart craft paint, which was all he uses. I tried but just couldn't get the hang of it, I just couldn't get it thin enough to work with. Today however I randomly came across a beautiful tutorial article on how to use the exact paints my friend so enthusiastically recommended. I wanted to post the link and ask if anyone else uses these paints? http://www.boardgameresource.com/how-to-paint-miniatures/
  3. Chronoscope gaming.

    I play with a group that is really dedicated to 5e. For a lot of them it's the only system they know and play. With the awesome assortment of figures in the fourth kickstarter's Chronoscope expansion I started working on a futuristic space version of 5e. With any luck I'll be able to keep the system enough like 5e that my group will be willing to give it a try. Luckily I have plenty of time to polish and playtest it before the figures ship. For the record I have played Spelljammer but didn't really like the feel of it. Which is just one of the reasons I'm building something from the ground up.
  4. Thanks OneBoot, I was hoping it was something like that. Once I saw it I couldn't stop coming up with uses for it. I'm working on a system for the Chronoscope line and those dumpsters would be perfect.
  5. Does anyone know what happened to that really nice dumpster they previewed during their 4th kickstarter? It had two sliding panels on the side and also opened from the top. I was planning on getting a few but it seems to have disappeared. I might have missed an update or something, if so I apologize in advance. I was just really stoked for it and was already thinking of uses for it, especially as impromptu bunkers.
