    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Fair enough! I've been in the miniatures hobby <2 years, I hope one day my collection can look this impressive!

    *wiping tears away* It's.... Beautiful... I am insanely jealous of both your organisational ability, space available, and quantity of painted miniatures! Well done!
  3. 1) yep, the website. 2) the HD paint line was discontinued in August, no new paint was made after that, and most if not all remaining stock was bought up in the Black Friday sale. To the best of my knoedge no other paints or paint lines produced via reaper will “disappear” though “sample paints” are one-offs and Limited Edition / Seasonal colours are a thing. 3) upcoming paint colour releases aren’t announced super far in advance, but are included in forum news posts shortly prior to their release. I anticipate most of the next batches of paints to be released will be those featured in the bones 4 Kickstarter being released a few at a time at some point after March.

    Reaper paints and Professional Painters

    Some excellent points being made above, but one that I don’t think has been mentioned with regards to Vallejo, is they send out TONS of free stuff to painters they like, or are popular, so that they can be seen using it- anyone follow Angel Giraldez on Instagram? His sponsorship, is a massive endorsement for Vallejo. To my knowledge, Reaper doesn’t send out as much free stuff, or if they do it’s not done strategically for advertising purposes to YouTube, Twitch or instagram “famous” painters. Painting is hard to make pay the bills- people use what is most readily available to them, if it’s high quality and free, even better.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I love that silver dragon sculpt, though there are a few very hard to reach bits and mine came with some NASTY mole lines running right across the scales. I’d buy another 2 in a heart beat though, to paint one silver and one gold. My first one is blue- as I thought I might run the HotDQ module first but changed my mind to Dragon Heist!

    Don’t have one yet. Theory being that we want to move in a year or two and will have more space then, things are a bit cramped now- we could get one now and I probably could make the space for it- but if we wait a year or two I think the quality of any printer we got would be significantly improved too Same! We have a black cat too (see my profile pic) named, very creatively, Shadow. In my area for the charity I volunteer for we have so many black cats come into our care, way more than all other colours combined, and they are much harder to regime it’s so sad! A lot of the ferals around here that we TNR are black too!

    Yeah luckily for my school this was before the real rise of social media, so it was an outraged 1/4 page in the local paper not an echo chamber of angry mumsnetters! I doubt they do the same thing now, probably just cancel school if snows even predicted! We were right on the coast as well so the weather was even less predictable (I'm not sure if that's scientific or anecdotal- but I definitely feel the weather is less predictable the further to the coast you get!)

    I remember several times where they "snowed off" school halfway through the day and sent the kids home- resulting in very angry parents because kids couldn't get into their houses because the parents were still at work or couldn't get home from school after it closed because if it's too snowy to keep the school open, guess what? It's also too snowy for the buses to run!

    I refuse to choose XD I love dogs, and I love cats. I've had both my entire life. While I dedicate my free time to helping cats for charity, that is partially because there are no dog charities in my town, so that was a proximity based decision. I also have 2 cats and 0 dogs, because I live in a masonette with no direct garden access and over the past few years have grown increasingly "houseproud" so cats are definitely less messy compared to the sort of dog I like!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'll be doing inventory too, after that... my brain says "do the bandits, you need those for your Waterdeep game" my heart says "BABA YAGA! DRAGONS! ROC" and basically all of the things I wont need for quite some time

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Yeah the game I’m prepping at the moment I’ll be doing milestone advancement, doing XP last time drove me insane “I find a rabbit and kill it for dinner, how much xp is that?” NONE. Milestones here I come!

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    I’m meant to be going out tonight but seriously considering saying it’s too icy for me to drive there it would be nice to stay home and do some painting as, though I am off work today boring tasks have consumed my time, and while a deep cleaned kitchen is nice, it’s not as nice as the beholder mini I’m working on...

    Sore subject, I recently applied for my dream job and didn’t get it. But such is life I guess. I’ve been in the music industry for about a decade now and for various reasons it has been making me miserable lately- I do a lot of volunteer work for a cat charity and am currently trying to find a way to transfer into a paid position there without having to move to a different location, so that’s the dream: being paid to do what I do now, so I can quit my day job.

    Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

    I would be interested to see what Reaper would come up with if they did some "bones bases" I don't like broccoli bases and tend to cut them off, so it would be cool to have some thin bonesium (or bones black for clearer detail) disks in 25mm, 50mm and 75mm rounds that could be glued to bases (or act as bases on their own) and featured things like skeletons on the ground, tree stumps, small chests or bags, runic patterns, stairs, crystals etc - as well as scenic bases or things like floor boards and brick patterns (though these are fairly easy to do through other methods so the first few are my preference)

    Hmm I hadn't thought of that! Perhaps terrain only or minis without eyes at least!

    Yeah, as I said the cruises I went on were as a child so perhaps they are slightly clouded by childhood! But a gaming / painting / d&d cruise does sound amazing! I would certainly sign up for that in a heartbeat!

    Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    I don't have the LTPK's, I'm just doing this for a friend and payment is in cake, so I spent ~£3 on the brushes but I don't really want to spend much more if I can avoid it! The paints I was just going to use my own and for minis I have a bunch of GW sprues that I was given for free (OHs friend runs the local store these were leftover from some promotion) I did look at the Paint and Take options but I couldn't find them on the EU site and it seems like they require some sort of advertising space for Reaper which I wouldn't be able to provide as this isn't like a convention or anything it's just ~15 people meeting in a board game cafe. This is def something that I might consider running for our local games fair in October though I think it's probably much more suited to that (Though even that I don't remember having a programme so I'm still not sure how the advertising space thing would work with that)

    Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    The super cheap pack of synthetic brushes I ordered on Amazon just turned up, I'll give one a go tonight to make sure they're not total garbage but I'm mainly going to be giving these out at a "miniature painting taster evening" I've been asked to do for the local "man-free gaming club" they normally do board games and stuff but a few of them expressed an interest in miniature painting so I'll be doing that next Tuesday- any tips on how to ease in newbies gratefully received

    Scylla Models – Bay Watchers

    Yeah I have to agree, I'm sure there is a market for these kinds of sculpts, but this isnt to my taste either.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    That must be it! I've been having problems accessing the forums today too, glad it's not just me I was beginning to get worried! I did wonder that too! We took things too far... and paid the price... I hate misplacing things too! I'm sure it'll turn up, I recently did an "inventory" of my painted miniatures and my Grave Minions (last used for a game on halloween) have gone AWOL- I'm hoping those will turn up too! Are you needing those figures for a game soon or were you planning on painting them soon or something?

    Glad to see others have said cruises, I love cruises but was recently mocked at work for this, I suppose they're not really "in fashion" at the moment, but I've been on a few (admittedly all as a child) and I thought they were AMAZING. Great food, fun activities, swimming all while on the ship, getting to visit a new destination every day or every couple of days, it was amazing I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Sign me up for a month on the Med! OH wants to go back to Thailand, I haven't been able to enjoy thai food since the last time we went (and the second half of that trip after an, er, unpleasant few days) I would go back there if he really wanted but it's not top of my list. I'm lucky to have traveled to a lot of places in the past and while I enjoy visiting new places, learning about the history and the culture- I'm afraid what I really love the most is being warm and swimming. Anywhere it's sunny and there's a pool has my vote.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Schroedinger’s snow: until I open the curtains it both has and hasn’t snowed. Smells snowy though and everyone said it would come down at some point this weekend. I have yet to make it out of bed this morning but I suppose I’ll have to find out soon!

    Good point, and anyway it's not our fault the paints still wet, perhaps they should've stuck to 2 thin coats...

    Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon

    I saw Glass last night, I wish I'd had a chance to re-watch Unbreakable beforehand but it stands alone fairly well. I thought it was pretty good, I mean it's not like the Sixth Sense twist ending we know Mr. Shyamalan for but I did like it and find it super interesting- it's pretty long (2h10) and held my interest the entire time, which is hard for a film over 90 minutes lately in those uncomfortable seats!
