    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.

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    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.

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    Hrm. I'm starting to doubt EasyPost's delivery date of today. Daylight is fading quickly...

    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.
  11. 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

  15. 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.

    Deluxe Exalted 3 edition KS

    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.

    28mm Female Forest Tribe

    The models seem a little "meh" to me. Like something I'd look at on a vendor's table at a con and put back down afterwards. But the price does seem really low. 6$ for four figures in resin? 61$ for fifty-four ?

    Babes III by Bombshell Miniatures

    Minis received :D It really feels good to put a check in a pledge delivered box. Maybe I need to back a couple more short term kickstarters...

    Gargantuan sized bases?

    Paper plate + compass :D

    Painting the Unpaintable

    ​Try "Killz" primer. A friend of mine who is a prop master tells me this sticks to pretty much anything. Comes in rattle can and brush on.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    As I look over my backed projects, it's giving me pause. All told I've a little more that 1200$ pledged to various projects; five of which are late - two delusionally so. I've mentally written off ever getting my seafarers of catan gaming board. I gotta give the project some credit in that there's a functional company producing these, but the estimated June 2013 date's expected April 2017 date has slipped now too. Exalted's December 2013 date seems comical as well. I've got some pdfs, but none of the physical rewards yet. Maybe they'll ship sometime next year. Latest update had them in production. Bones 3 being late doesn't particularly bother me. Reaper is a company that does more than just that particular kickstarter and they can weather some delays. Some other companies that pretty much are a kickstarter have to be hurting from any similar delays - years of time in development with no product to show has to be financially rough. Anyway.. Received: - Reaper Miniatures Bones: An Evolution of Gaming Miniatures - The Official Settles of Catan Gaming Board (partial) - Larry Elmore: The Complete Elmore Artbook - The Tomorrow Girl: Dresden Codak Volume 1 - Standard Action Season 3 - Olde World Miniatures - Beats Antique | Brand New Show - A Thousand Faces - Reaper Minatures Bones II: The Return of Mr Bones - Clockwork: Empire Roleplaying Game - The Complete Elmore Volume II: Black & White Delayed: - Deluxe Exalted 3rd Edition (Dec 2013) [concerned] - Reaper Minatures Bones 3: The Search for Mr Bones! (Aug 2016) [ok] - Corvus Belli's INFINITY Roleplaying Game (Jul 2016) [ok] - Infinity Terminus Segments (Nov 2016) [ok] Production: - JourneyQuest Season 3 (Dec 2016) [ok] - The Gamers: Episode 1 (Dec 2016) [ok] - Base Boss by Reaper Minatures (Feb 2017) [ok] - Kev White does Matt Dixon - Female Fantasy Minatures (Apr 2017) [ok] - Dungeon Fantasy Roleplaying Game, Powered by GURPS (May 2017) [ok] - Scion 2nd Edition Tabletop RPG (Oct 2017) [wondering what real date will be] - Isometric Gaming Paper Rolls (Jun 2017) [not sure]

    D&D, minis, and rewards

    Pathfinder has short adventures at the end of their comics that shouldn't take an hour to get through. They also have "Quests" for PFS that use pregens and are designed to be run quickly (~1hr). They strings together for a broader narrative too

    Rcon minis and paints

    yep. I think you want: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/swag/sku-down/07250

    Faction Miniatures?? how to get them??

    Also, they're using DHL skus, so they'll probably be general availability at sometime (as opposed to special editions skus).
