    Dice of Rolling

    i'm not really feeling this. the dice look like starter dice that came in the old tsr boxed sets to me. color coding is interesting. I might see about doing that with my play dice bag. it good for someone just starting. but I've got a zillion dice already.

    Top Secret Espionage RPG

    I played it back in the day. Though I'm pretty sure rules were loosely interpreted for reasons of cool. I've added it to my "stalker" list on KS. I'll watch the hour long video.... tomorrow? I really hope there are good rules for social interaction. It looks like the d12 gets some love, but I'm also wondering if the new system plays like alternity where your skill is a die rather than a number. I figure i'll know tomorrow. Also, REALLY not missing those minis. I would put them into a melt exchange with nary a second thought. They were cool in the day, but it's been 30+ years. The bar has raised considerably since then.

    Reaper Badge Holders

    Though Origins 2017 was great, I'm afraid my Reaper badge holder has probably seen it's last convention. Let's pause for a moment of silence. I've found the zazzle store, but that doesn't seem to be able to offer a replacement. I suspect I got this in a swag bag for reaper con at some point. Is a Reaper badge holder available currently somewhere? Might it return in a convention swag bag at somepoint?

    Bones IV pre-launch & news

    I didn't ask about Bones 4, but I did talk about Bones 3 a bit. Some logistics delaying some models to retail didn't occur to me like needing to design, prototype, review, revise and ultimately print packaging for minis that won't fit into any of the existing standard blisters. Things like Goremaw was the example I asked about. This knowledge has allowed me to reset my patience. Bones 4 likely needs to have it's timelines adjusted to account for Bones 3 and Baseboss and Convention Season. I'm taking a we'll know, when they know and can tell us.

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    I finished unpack, inventory and dry fit today. A couple of bones are going into the drink eventually to get straightened. No omissions, no missing pieces. Thanks, Reaper!

    startrek RPG!

    I saw this too. I'm not too keen on the minis though. They're characters from the various series. What I'd like in a mini would be a more generic officers so I can play my character, not paramount's.

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    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.

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    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...

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    My UPS page went from not received from shipper to delivery today. Oh dear. I think it might be a WFH day.

    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.

    Dropper bottles for paints?

    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.

    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.

    Origins - Who's coming?

    I'll be there. Lots of PFS, trying Shadowrun: Anarchy, spending money in vendor hall. That pretty much covers it.
  19. 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.

    Reaper and the Starfinder RPG??

    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.

    Changed my lights today

    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.

    ORIGINS 2017

  23. 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.
