    Newb Question about DnD..

    "Less hung up" is subjective. Some of us enjoy designing monsters/encounters from an increased tactical perspective. And that is also good, if that is the sort of game one is playing. Note my careful language. This is how Edition Wars (TM) start.

    Newb Question about DnD..

    I don't play 5th, and I largely ignored 4th, but I did buy some blind WoTC boxes during 4th, and there were still giants rated as Large. This whole all-giants-are-huge thing flew right under my radar. Weird. Seems kind of limiting. But to answer your question of when giants did not all always go on a 3 inch base, that would be the vast majority of the game's history.
  3. Sad news from Chaosium.

    Check it out. Plus, her name is Saga, of all things.

    Help - Looking for Gorilla Minis

    Warlord Miniatures had Savage Core, which was a line with their own "Simians," along with Neanderthals, Amazons, and some tribal men, and European-style explorers. They have since sold the line to somebody else, and I recently saw an ad or Kickstarter for that other company, but I can't find the name. Some of the Simians are still up on Amazon. EDIT: Lucid Eye Miniatures has them now.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I don't consider a project to be legit until I have bled on it. My proudest accomplishments all have my blood under the paint, somewhere.

    Practice?

    Like some others here, I don't "practice" as much as I just "experiment." I tend to analyze a mini to determine what techniques it will require, long before I get it home. If I see something that looks like it might require different techniques from what I am used to, or have tried before, I typically still already have figured out what I am going to do with it before I start. Once committed, I tend to just make adjustments to technique for anything going "wrong." If I really don't like it, I will stop at some point and maybe re-paint at a later time, maybe right away, depending on need. But I never intentionally sit down to practice a technique on a throwaway mini, so to speak. I tend to just do it. (No meme intended.)

    Overturn Rising Sands

    I hadn't seen this thread before, but let me tell you all that reading through it has been an enjoyable way to spend my lunch. Not that I enjoy seeing anybody inconvenienced at all. But it has been quite a page-turner.
  9. Awesome! You ever wonder what made him lift up the sword and shout "By the power of Greyskull" in the first place? Seems an odd way to spend your Saturday afternoon.

    Massive Darkness Nightmare Thing?

    I'm sensing another addition to my tabletop Silent Hill game.
  11. We all know it's tongue-and-cheek, but it would probably not surprise many that a few click-bait "news" blogs treated it as serious last week and riled a bunch of people up with it.

    Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    It isn't progressing very snowly?

    Bunch of reaper Bones NPC Guards ambush a wizard

    It's no less than he deserves, the scaredy-cat!
  14. There was a request in the head swap thread to see how I had painted up some Starship Generators that were seen there with a slight modification. Rather than hijack that thread, I'll just drop these here. These were painted up rather quickly, as are many things when working up to a convention on short notice. But I did take the time to transfer some numbers on these, just to add a little bit extra. The "mod", as it were, is in the form of the bases I added, with some nuts and bolts (made from styrene rod and hex rod) thrown on there, just to give the impression these were bolted to a starship deck, or similar.
  15. D'oh! MFG of said hex is Plastruct. Don't know why I typed "Plasticraft." I mainly work in silicone and resin for duplicating stuff, so if I were to mold those, I would probably mold the whole base (and I have given it some thought, and might eventually get to it, but at the time I made those I was on a deadline). One of the benefits for me of doing it this way, is that I can opt to cast the whole base, or alternately just drop a tiny bit of resin into each nut section to cast just those. EDIT: Pics of the painted gennies here.
