  1. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Modrons? Did I miss these? Or are you talking about the High Rollers?
  2. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    When Jason Wiebe has a good sculpt, it's a really good sculpt. Loving that land terrapin! It seems like he is doing a lot of 3D sculpting lately. I just wish most of Reaper's sculptors would start making their integral bases like this one (below) on all of their figures. I'm a very lazy monk with my miniatures and am tired of re-basing all of the Bones that don't have "round base" looking integral bases. Am I the only one who prefers the 28, 32, 40 and 50mm round bases on their figures? It makes them so much easier to use in a slew of other games! But if I have to keep chopping bases its a small price to pay and easy enough with the Bones material. (EDITED to remove several typos)
  3. Prehistoric Park Video Game

    Sorry, Sirithiliel if you felt I was "attacking" the game or the crowdfunding effort. I wasn't. I was simply indicating it's been done before and done relatively well. Unlike a first person shooter, where you can have different settings, characters, etc. a dinosaur park is a dinosaur park is a dinosaur park - and even the KS you posted has the "Jurassic Park" feel. I'll personally wait until this one (below) comes out next summer....but I do wish the students well, too. :) PS - Operation Genesis was available actually at discount book outlet the year after it came out for $3.99. They had piles of it at many of the locations where I live. Sadly, I only bought one - I should have speculated, as I could probably make a mortgage payment with a stack of them now. :) And don't be offended by my post - I'm "mostly harmless" - even my forum profile says so. LOL
  4. Prehistoric Park Video Game

    I'm surprised they're even bothering. Still have this game (video below) and it's great. This has already been done.
  5. D&D Icewind Dale Yeti

    Whoa! That's a very sinister looking Yeti! Very nice.
  6. First Miniature - Ice Devil (Bones)

    Awesome, Doug, I will check it out. Thank you! And if it works, I'll post some "real" pics back to this thread. As always, I am - Wally (AKA Paint Monk)
  7. First Miniature - Ice Devil (Bones)

    Years ago, I had a nice camera box setup for miniature picture taking. Alas, the box is long gone and my good digital camera is in storage at a different location currently. If anyone has suggestions on a cheap setup that would work better, I would be grateful Thank you for your suggestion! As always, I am - Wally (AKA Paint Monk)

    I was so excited that I painted my first figure yesterday, I thought I'd take a shot at another one. And it's another first, because I've never painted a dragon (or anything even close) before. I was actually sort of happy with this one, although the wings could use some serious work. Thanks to everyone for taking a minute to look as I keep trying to learn how to paint!

    Thank you. As always, I am - Wally (AKA Paint Monk)
  10. Forgeworld Warpfire Dragon

    Beautiful painting on an extremely different looking dragon!
  11. Nethyrmaul the Undying (77190)

    Very nice work!
  12. First Miniature - Ice Devil (Bones)

    Thanks so much for the encouragement. Every time I look at it and compare it to some of the really fine work on these forums I still grumble at myself. But like they say, practice makes perfect (or at least better) so I continue to plug along.
  13. First Miniature - Ice Devil (Bones)

    You're very kind, thank you. Need to brush up with some more monsters before I even try painting characters. Might need new glasses, too.
  14. First Miniature - Ice Devil (Bones)

    Ok, so miniature painting is NOTHING like riding a bike. This is the first figure I've painted in over a decade. I can see I need lots more practice before my Bones 4 figures arrive in 2019! Sorry about the poor quality of the photos. Comments and suggestions welcome and appreciated, no matter how harsh. I was overall pleased with how the Ice Devil himself came out, but desperately need to do much better on weapons and armor. Thank you for your consideration!
  15. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm actually putting together some unofficial (house) rules for a new Mordheim swamp-town setting and warbands using largely the projected minis for Dreadmere. I've already started to replace my GW Mordheim warbands with Reaper Models....dwarves are up first! Dreadmere is fantastic...and actually, IMHO, has much more potential than Mordheim! The Dreadmere expansion is an absolute MUST HAVE! (EDIT: Do you have the link to where I can buy that amazing ship?)
