  1. @Reaper - you didn't forget about previewing this mini did you? In the past you've had the monthly anniversary mini on your homepage around the 25th/26th. Here we are on the 29th.
  2. I'm not sure. I plan on picking up a bunch of the oozes, and trying out all of the different colors on the clear before I do my Kyphrixis, but that won't be until after the B4 KS is over. I think it might be too strong unless you thin it, however, my understanding is that you don't want to thin the Tamiya Clears with water - you should use the Tamiya Thinner.
  3. And the reds and blues: I don't have any untouched of the fire elemental to compare to. I did these so long ago, I forget which is which. I believe the one in the center was done with Tamiya Clear Yellow, the one on the left with Tamiya Clear Orange and the one on the right with Tamiya Clear Red. But don't quote me on that. The one on the left is untouched, the one on the right is Tamiya Clear Blue.
  4. A little thread necromancy here, as I realized I never shared these pictures: This is a selection of the green translucent Bones, where I have (so far) only used black and Tamiya Clears. These are all the same green as shown in the bottom row, but you can see that the use of the Tamiya Clears appears to make them more translucent, and even tints the color. The one on the left was washed with Tamiya Clear Yellow, the one on the right is untouched. Bases are just plain flat black. The one on the left is untouched, the one on the right has the figures done with Tamiya Clear Green, and the smoke done with Tamiya Clear Smoke. the one on the left is untouched, the one on the right is Tamiya Clear Yellow. The one in the middle is a mix of Tamiya Clear Green and Tamiya Clear Green.
  5. Power tools. Circular Saw, Cordless drill. Grinder. Leaf Blower. Weed Wacker. Belt Sander. That sort of stuff. I was looking at Stubbs, Biker Thug, and thought "This looks just like my friend's husband, only he would be carrying tools, not guns. How hard would they be to sculpt?" Which made me think that maybe a conversion sprue of power tools would be good for Chronoscope. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Chronoscope/sku-down/50272

    Last chance for a potty break people!

    I actually applied paint to a few of my Bones 3 miniatures a couple of days ago. It was specifically so I could tell my wife "Yes, honey, I've started painting them" before I break the news I'm buying into Bones 4.
  8. PRELAUNCH

    Now you've done it. I suddenly feel the urge to glue Bones minis to one of my kid's fidget spinners...
  9. This may be an off the wall question, but does anyone have both the 06102: Hospitaliers Crusaders Adept models AND the new Crusaders models from Bones 3? And if you do, are you willing/able to post some side by side pictures of them? Thanks in Advance, Chris

    I didn't either - went to the pledge manager to print my invoice and check against that. Everything was there for me as well.

    Well thank you then. Sucks for you guys, but at least I know I'm not losing my mind. Well, not completely, anyway. I still can't recall what I ordered 80 of the 20mm round bases for. I remember having a good reason - just can't recall what it was.
  12. Complete all zones,

    Mine took a similar stroll. I live in a town not too far off I-35 in Iowa. Reaper isn't that far from I-35 because I-35 runs through the Dallas-Ft Worth Metro area. When the UPS truck tracking first left Ft Worth, the first tracking stops were along I-35. So I figured that UPS would bring it straight up I-5 into Kansas City and then onto Des Moines. Oh no, it veered up I-44 over to St Louis way to the east, and then meandered up state highways until it finally came back west to me.

    Got my bases today. Thank you. One question (just out of curiosity - it's not a problem*): When I ordered the 74043 Clear Hex Bases, I was under the assumption that those came without the pegs, and so I also ordered the 74047 pegs. But the 74043 came with the pegs as well. That leads me to wonder: Did I make a wrong assumption to begin with? Did Reaper change their mind? Did I actually order extra pegs for a reason I can't recall? *well, it it could be a problem - it could be a sign that my mind is going. But that's hardly Reaper's problem.

    you know Reaper, I love you guys as a company, and I like those of you I've met here and at ReaperCon as individuals - but I'm really disappointed with your handling of the Base Boss KS, particularly the communications side of it. I know that you guys will come through and that I'll get my bases eventually, if not soon. But that's not really my disappointment or frustration here - the fact is, I really only backed this KS to support you guys - the bases I ordered don't really matter to me. But I'm left with all sorts of conflicting thoughts about what your handling of this KS says about that support - many of them negative, most of them just puzzled. I really hope that whatever is going on there at Reaper HQ gets sorted out in a positive way for all of you and by extension, all of us.
  15. Cool. But... One thing I quickly grew weary of in the web based on is the assumption that the city will always be completely walled, and the keep is always a separate section to one side of the city. Off to download the June CC3 annual - hadn't looked at that yet. I can definitely seem myself using this online one as a start for CC3 built cities.
