    Bones Catalog

    Oooh I havent had a chance to catch up on that Reaper Live episode yet but this is cool! I'd love something like this.

    Critical Role official miniatures from Steamforged Games

    Yeah I have the other miniatures, all of them, and they're all really good quality I'm happy with them, I havent painted any of them yet but they have none of the same weirdness with the faces that they have in the pictures in the update.

    Critical Role official miniatures from Steamforged Games

    Unfortunately there's been a delay with this one announced in their latest update. The reason being problems with quality control, accompanying pictures are not good quality but... yeah. These minis look pretty bad. I'm quite annoyed / upset by this really, not the delay, KS's have delays I expect it, but the quality, I'm glad they're working to fix it... but dont know what else to say about it really. Just I hope these end up being good.

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    Me too! I’m on my second cold of 2019- I’m normally healthy as a horse so very bored of this being laid up feeling. I could go back to work today, I’m not feeling too awful and I did lots of work emails at home yesterday- but I interface with the public and no one likes someone with a cold being out in public!

    I told myself I'd only do a KS this year if there was Bones V. THIS changes things.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    My spreadsheet tells me that if I paint all at the rate I’m painting now, I might even be done before I’m 30! But given that bones 4 will double the quantity of minis I own... it’s not looking hopeful. Also soon I may be returning to the world of full time work instead of my life of luxury as a part timer (all good things eh?) I was (and still am, really) new to reaper with bones 4, and only got 1 dreadmere set, but it is without doubt my favourite set I love it’s aesthetics, wish I’d picked up a second one! May still yet on the aftermarket or if the site has leftovers for sale after fulfilling (is this likely?) If Reaper did a campaign setting (either setting neutral or 5e) I would definitely pick it up.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Oh wow! There’s a LOT of stuff in there that I’m going to want... goodbye wallet! Or actually probably by the time these hit the UK it’ll be close to my birthday- so perhaps this is my birthday presents lined up already!

    Winter is here: February 2019 Goals

    Good thing I checked on this because I forgot that part of my goal is the 5 minis for WD:DH, I havent been thinking about that and I prepped a bunch of models ready for painting today- none with the intention of using for this. I dont know what's wrong with me that whatever I want to paint is never what I need for a game! I'm also nowhere near finishing the book and had ALSO totally forgotten about the map part of this goal! JEEZ! I do have one map printed.

    Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

    "Young Burrowing Horror" I love the burrowing horror sculpt- but it doesn't fit so great on a 50mm base if you want to use it for, I don't know, say a Bullett, for example. In 5e they're "Large" (50mm base) so a "Young" version of this sculpt, by Jason Wiebe again perhaps, would be cool

    These are “cheesex” dice boxes- a guy who sells dice online and lives semi locally is kind enough to save his extras for me and sends me a couple of boxes every now and then, I got 50 from him yesterday, they’re the perfect size for a character sized mini- I’m still working out the best way to store my larger painted minis (opinions welcomed!)

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    You got my hopes up for a second I thought there would be an extra update XD Double checked the kickstarter page: "Update Schedule The next Friday Update will be the third Friday of February, the 15th. Our March Updates will be the first and third Fridays, the 1st and the 15th. Thanks!"

    Miniature tracking software?

    Yeah I agree, I did also consider including price but chickened out. Admittedly I get a LOT of my miniatures as birthday / Christmas gifts so it's not as bad as the list suggests... but it's still not good.
  13. We played Chronicles of Crime on Tuesday, we played 3 player and I really enjoyed it! I'd never played a boardgame that had a phone app as a main component of it so that was very novel, it was fun, took about 40 minutes and I would happily play again! We were at the boardgame cafe technically as part of a larger group, so after that we also played Codenames, we had one very good round and one very bad round!

    Someone in a Facebook group I'm in is looking for an ID on this- anyone up to the challenge? Apparently it was donated to a charity shop without the top part of the packaging XD Never mind! His identity has been revealed!

    Manufacturer LINE SKU Pack Name Individual Reference Base Size Sculptor Notes Status Acquired Completed These are my columns, Status is either "Inventory, WIP, Painted or Kickstarter Unshipped" I like the idea of a Material column, I might add that too. Also I tend to make the Pack name column a clickable link to the webpage its available from- but this is not at all up to date.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Yeah I can’t see the chibis seeing paint time anytime soon. Anything that falls under “character mini” is probably going to the bottom of the pile really, as a DM I am trying to prioritise monsters, I paint “characters” a bit but I mainly try and paint what I think is going to see table time, so if a character mini isn’t earmarked as an npc, none of my players take a shine to it or or doesn’t match a pre-made character I’m building for some reason... it goes on the top shelf. Which sounds like a place of honour, but is actually a reference to me needing a chair to get to it, and as such am less likely to!

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I've had that. I caught it off a heroin addict (wish I was kidding!) who overdosed at my venue while I was duty managing- it was a long night and then followed by a really not fun illness I resigned from duty managing as soon as I was well enough to come back in- I wasnt paid enough to be in a position where I was saving druggies and catching viruses from them. Hope your family don't have it too bad and get better soon!

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Oooh cool- a shame there are a few in there that are already released elsewhere though, the 2 pirates and executioner at least, maybe others too- I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this though, some nice terrain bits too.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Is this a Wizkids unpainted big Townspeople pack? Don't think I've seen anything about that would be interested to see if you have a link? I don't set up a map for every tavern or shop my players go into, but if your players are prone to shenanigans it never hurts to have that stuff prepped! If for example, gnolls invade the town for a raid it's handy to have a lot of townpeople, or if your players are planning a heist on a local jewellery store etc- otherwise if they're talking to a townperson sometimes I put a mini on top of my DM screen to indicate that's who they're talking to, otherwise I might just show them a picture of the person either on my tablet or I have a bunch of the pathfinder "face cards"

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Not yet! It’s on my to do list to watch a few unboxings of it maybe- I would consider it for a sea faring campaign but that’s not what my next one is shaping up to be- I’ll probably give it a miss, but it’s nice to dream!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I've been thinking about this for a few days but have been unable to think of the proper word for it- whats the word for like a litter/palanquin type seat (covered) that goes on an animal's (like an elephant) back? I feel like I've only seen it in cartoons and it's vastly impractical, but I'd still like to see one that's on the pack terrapin.

    ... These are just patches right? As in, "leave them around a band member too long and it'll be on their denim jacket next week" patches?

    The bring and buy sale at the local board game cafe was this morning, I’m friends with the organiser so I got to scan the list in advance and I knew there wasn’t anything I was desperate to pick up, but we went for a browse anyway and ended up picking up a couple of bits- a collection of warhammer models which turned out to be a bit of a bargain for what it was- but I don’t play that so don’t really know all the details (my knowledge of warhammer is solely advising OH on how to paint what he wants and helping to build the figures) I got a copy of Playing At The World, which I’m excited to read, but realistic of that ambitions time scale.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    We used to have a great fabric store right near my work, when I was more inclined to make things I was always picking up “scraps” and sewing up simple dresses for my friends and their kids from there! Unfortunately it closed down and became a Taco Bell, even more unfortunately I still visit there just as much... There is another fabric store in town but it’s more expensive, further away and full of very condescending staff... I rarely visit. I do keep meaning to go though as I would like to rifle through the scraps for something cool to make a new dicebag from!

    Black 3.0

    Yeah I think it's good value for a cool product- but my need for it for 10-20 miniatures would probably be 3-5ml max, so it's not for me! If I was a more artistic person who had more uses for it sure- unfortunately that's not the case! If further down the line they end up doing mini size bottles for around mini size prices I'd probably pick one up
