  1. I don't have a FB account and dislike the pestering they do there. I thought linking the original post would let people find the open bag pic in the comments on their own if they wanted to. Sorry if that wasn't clear or if FB made that difficult for you. I didn't have any issues with it. I also thought posting the opened sampler pic might be seen as a spoiler by some. Linking the post was an easy way to prevent that.
  2. Update: This FB post has a picture of the Reaper sampler out of the bag in the comments under the original post. It has an ornament in it, but I think that's only if you were nice.
  3. Sometimes I wish we had a 3D view of Reaper's minis, like set up on a turntable and spun around. Anyway, some research on this mini on Reaper's FB tells me the arm length is an illusion of the photo and sculpt. Both Ron and Rhonda said this. Should look like a normal human when you get a better viewing angle. Here's Ron's post where it is discussed.

    Christmas special edition minis

    Single bottles of the holiday paints would be a nice thing, if only during the holiday season. But I'm guessing that might be too much hassle for them. Still, did you query them about getting replacements for the frozen ones? When did they start offering a possible coal? I can't remember and haven't gotten one. I have a rock, though. I agree that other hobby things would be more fun.

    Priming Reaper Bones Dragons

    I've used a mixture of matte medium and MSP liner plus some water to prime Bones plastic. This darkens the crevices of the model and also makes the mold lines you missed easier to see. If you prefer an overall dark coat, straight MSP liner works. Also, there are rattle can primers that work, but I'll leave that to others who use them. You can also start with paint, as long as you don't add much water to it. Too thin and it beads up. Have you read the following FAQ? It has links to two other posts all about working with Bones. They are by the professional painter Rhonda Bender with followup from many others. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/48667-bones-frequently-asked-questions-unofficial/
  6. This link shows how many are left of each: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Master Series Paint High Density Also, whenever someone puts one in their cart, it reduces the count. The numbers have to be restored manually, so paints have gone out of stock, come back in stock, etc. Good luck!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    That is annoying. I wonder if they went to someone else's house and left the notice there. Our postman sometimes leaves our mail at the neighbor's house and vice versa.

    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    After you choose Unread Content, if you choose Read Status of "Everything" instead of "Content I haven't read," that will do what you want, if I understand correctly.
  9. If you contact Reaper by email, they will replace a missing item. I'm assuming you want the vampiress they forgot?

    Miniature Painting Techniques—Glossary

    While the "like" may be shining down on it, I'm pretty sure you wanted to say "light." That's the only potential typo I found. Very nice job, TaleSpinner.

    ReaperCon '18 swag bag *online version*

    I wonder if they plain ran out of 2018 paints or if they made a mistake filling the bags. My swag bag contained the 2018 paint triad. However, I noticed the part number (09898) on the blister pack is the same as the 2017 triad, which makes me wonder. Looking forward to Reaper's response to the issue.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    You also need to add some magnets, fun ones and maybe some for sticking your minis firmly to the box, too. Supposed to be better for travel than the foam-lined cases that can be abrasive to paint, I've heard.

    Maiden Bust Exclusive?

    Is it a resin cast? Approximately how large is it? Thanks!

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Don't give up hope yet. IIRC, she was around a couple months last year, so you never know what Reaper will do this year. Also, she is sometimes available from other vendors later on.
