    Not to rain on anyone's parade, but remember Monday is a holiday in the US. Reaper may(?) be off. Don't expect deliveries on Monday from carriers.

    My package arrived :) Inventory beginning. OOOH - I forgot the core set had a bunch of bases. I was not expecting those.

    My box spent most of yesterday somewhere though it was scheduled for delivery yesterday. USPS got the box 4am today and it's been loaded on a truck. so, hopeful whoo.

    Hrm. I'm starting to doubt EasyPost's delivery date of today. Daylight is fading quickly...
  5. My UPS page went from not received from shipper to delivery today. Oh dear. I think it might be a WFH day.
  6. I just got my postage applied notification. I think reality is starting my way and will bowl me over will bones-y goodness in due time.
  7. Dropper bottles make it more convenient to meter paint out onto the palette. Once on the palette, you can thin, mix, add mediums and otherwise mess with the paint without a concern for messing with the whole bottle. I've been transitioning to dropper bottles from pots. It's slow going, though right now I've only two pots versus 30ish dropper bottles on my work table now.
  8. Um.... empty spot on the floor for the box? I'll figure out how and where to store it after I get a look at it.
  9. I'll be there. Lots of PFS, trying Shadowrun: Anarchy, spending money in vendor hall. That pretty much covers it.
  10. To be honest, I've got a really good Badger airbrush I'm afraid to use. I keep using my cheap Iwata. That's the plan until I start ramping up in experience. Some of this is irrational, but there is a good reason as well. The Iwata is very quick and easy to clean, disassemble and reassemble as needed. The Iwata also has multiple needles, so I've had the experimented with switching those out as well. I'm building xps on what may well be the broke husk of that poor Iwata. :) Laying down primer, basecoats or just hosing bones down with brown liner are all in my skill repertoire. I've done a little terrain painting and that's where I'm at. My advise as a fellow newb: shoot some water through at a box to get a feel for the mechanism. Find out how to remove and replace the needle (not changing the size - that's more involved). Get your cleaning weapons and water bottle ready. Take some primer and go to town.
  11. i'm not too keen on them being prepaints. I understand why they're doing it. I just hope there will be an option for unpainted minis.
  12. My FLGS converted their fluorescent tubes to led tubes. They changed the tone of the light noticeably to the blue, but after the first couple of times beneath them, I don't notice anymore.
  13. Hooray!
  14. I'll echo some previous comments. I like the sculpts - especially the more youthful male spell casters. I don't like enough of them to justify backing at this point. Though retail is likely the way I'll get them. I've starred the project to revisit that decision later, but for now, it's wish-them-success-but-wait-for-retail.

    Thread necromancy - my book, map and screen arrived today. Estimated date was Dec 2013. Book is pretty, though matte, not glossy. Heavy. Screen is a little thinner than I'd like, but workable. Map is pretty and tough. One more checkbox ticked on my Kickstarter.
