    Black Friday Deals

    Still missing the brown filament roll from my Maker Geeks BF order. Sent 2 emails in regards to getting it sent or if they can't find the time to do that to just refund my money. So far nothing. I've purged myself of anything Maker Geeks. I learned my lesson.
  2. Took advantage of today's Bay of E's coupon code. Picked up a few Vegas games (wow, little less then 2 months now!!) minis: Azer - Storm King's Thunder #24 D&D Miniature (Vegas, will get more as I need more) Duskmantle Assassin - Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica #15 D&D MTG Miniature Ettin - Elemental Evil #27 D&D Miniature (Vegas) Invisible Minsc and Boo - Tomb of Annihilation #40 D&D Rare Miniature Efreet - Rage of Demons #33 D&D Miniature x3 (Vegas) Merchant (purple robe) - Waterdeep Dragon Heist #06B D&D Miniature (Vegas) Loxodon Cleric - Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica Companion Starter 1 #49 D&D MTG (Vegas, 20th level pregen) Druid of the Old Ways - Guildmasters Guide to Ravnica #24 D&D MTG Miniature (good looking centaur mini) Azer Fighter war dragon queen prepainted mini (Vegas, most likely either the King or a important cleric, as it's looks different then newer ones, above) Also picked up these: Human Druid - Male - Wizkids Miniatures - Dungeons & Dragons - WZK726 Elf Rogue - Female - Wizkids Miniatures - Pathfinder Battles - WZK7318 Elf Male Paladin - Wizkids Miniatures - Pathfinder Battles - WZK72608 WizKids Deep Cuts Workbench & Tools Miniatures Dungeons & Dragons WZK73369 My Adventure League players like the Wizkids minis (as do I) + I need to build up my pregen mini selection. Finally, one of my regular AL players made a character which oddly I don't have a mini for!! (Shocking, I know). After last Monday's game I came home & before I went to bed, I went looking for a mini to represent his character. I ended up finding this mini. I just didn't end up ordering until tonight (thru Noble Knight's ebay storefront). So he'll have to wait a few weeks till he can use her. Gives me time to put some paint on her if I can get back to the paint table. Dark Sword Fantasy Mini Female Warrior/Cleric w/Weapon Options Pack (DSM7463) Picture show her with a sword, but going on DS's site, you can see the optional weapons, a mace & a single bladed axe. Just my way of thanking my players for playing on Mondays. There was anther one made by Bobby Jackson that I really liked but it didn't come up on E, no worries, this one was my 2nd choice. Almost forgot, order 3 Pokemon vinyl stickers/decals but those are for my daughter for Christmas, as she is a big, no wait BIG Pokemon fan. I got her a Pokeball in 3 different sizes 2.5" to 4". A Eevee (size 4") & a flock of Eevees (size 6").
  3. Went ahead & placed the order for the Johan special edition mini. Jason is a good friend & I didn't want to miss out on helping him out. 01633: Johan Rumbleguts, Dwarf Hero $9.99 x103923: Swiftpaw, Catfolk Monk $6.99 x1

    Awesome gesture!! I will be adding one to my order on the 17th! EDIT: Just order now!!
  5. The Grudge: I've got mine up to a all over wash to bring out the details & I stopped. As I liked the results enough that I didn't want to cover it up. Eventually, I'll get back to it but this was done when it first came out, a few years ago.
  6. I have way to many empty Tamiya paint cans & old Pro Paints bottles that are perfect for mini holders. Nice design thou, I wish them success.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Well week 2 of Starfinder Society ended up like week 1, no one showed up. There was a 5e game going beside me, so at least I got to hear their game going as I waited for people to show up. I waited for about an hour tonight. I did end up talking with a fellow employee from work (didn't know he was a Magic player) & I did have a great tasting Subway sandwich for dinner. I'm dissapointed but I'm not to surprised at the same time. Starfinder isn't D&D or even Pathfinder in terms of name recognition & such so it's gonna take a few empty game nights just to get it going. I'm hoping it's soon thou, I really wanna GM a game!! At least I can get a couple hours of sleep before work tonight + Monday's D&D 5e game went well too. Players got pretty far into the Redbrand Hideout + we all had a laugh at the pit trap in the beginning. I am thinking about swapping out a day off for Weds nights to accommodate my game nights. It's not like I've 2 days in a row for that long + I went with split days for like forever, so it would be nothing new to me.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    https://icv2.com/articles/news/view/42024/a-town-full-deep-cuts Most of them appear to be new but the bandits (#3 & 4 at the top) & then the last figure on each row, have been released already. Looks like a interesting set. Releases is for May. Also bottom of the pages brings up close up pics.
  9. I picked up a bunch during CMoN's 2017 BF sale. Well worth the 2 bucks for most of them. One of these days I'll slap some paint on them. I did get a couple that I've been wanting but never pulled the trigger till I seen em in that sale: Chet: Field squirrel & Bolo: Marmot Warrior Fun stuff!! Acquired over the weekend: Google Chromecast audio. It was on sale at Best Buy (thou I think Google dropped the price all over) for 15.00 so figured I'd do some Christmas shopping for my son & put the device in my order. Reaper Order placed tonight: 77342: Zombies! (5) $6.99 x1 77080: Wall of Fire (3) $4.99 x2 77317: Bed $2.99 x4 74062: 100mm Round Gaming Base (4) $10.99 x1 77256: Brass Bull $5.99 x2 01551: Christmas Knight $9.99 x1 77082: Large Fire Elemental $8.99 x1 77584: Large Air Elemental $4.99 x1 74037: 3" Round Plastic RPG Base (10) $5.99 x1 Your order has received 2x Dungeon Dwellers: Caerindra Thistlemoor Merry Christmas! Your order has received a Stocking! Merry Christmas! Your order has received 2x Father Christmas! After last night game session I knew I wanted to replicate the bunk beds that are in the Redbrand hideout & I knew Reaper (Talespinner's) beds stack, so they made up for the 5 bucks I needed. After looking at my order I got to thinking I think I have this mini: Uther, Christmas knight & I did. I got him last year. So out he went from the order. To make up for his amount, I put in the Brass Bull x2. I needed some gorgons for a swarm mini for the 20th level adventure & I already had one. I placed it on the 1 100mm base I have & 3 would fit (theoretically), perfect for a swarm!! After I get these 2 thou I may see if I can fit a couple more on there for more bodies. The price was well over the 40 dollar limit for the December freebie so I decided to go after the stocking. Went looking for the air elemental as it'll be a smoke elemental (a special summons by the a noble efreeti in the 20th level adventure) & it was back in stock! I got up to 70 after putting in a couple minis & figured eh, might as well get 2 December minis. I'll just throw it into the next BoGW I'm part of. I totally spaced off that I'd qualify for 2x Father Christmas as well. BONUS!!* *Most likely it'll prob go in the BoGW. Now to wait for the 17th so I can order the holiday figures I'm missing out on. Also did some Christmas shopping with Amazon for the kids & I slapped in the Starfinder Alien Archive pawn set. In that set they have HUGE elemental pawns but efreeti get summon fire elemental as a ability. That elemental is a max size of large. So in went the Bones fire elemental.

    Frosty the Lich Lord

    I think what factored into their choice was the 3 core guys I get every week have only played their characters a total of around 2 or 3 times before we started Death House & I gave them pregens for that. I totally understand as I wasn't sure if I wanted to run a AL holiday adventure I found. The concept of the adventure was goofy holiday as the PCs had to stop some evil elves & a Jack Frost kinda character from taking out Santa & preventing him from delivering presents on whatever the Forgotten Realms equivalent of Christmas is. Again, it was a thought but they are enjoying Lost Mine of Pandelver, so I didn't care what they did. Heck, they just leveled up to 3 last night.

    Colonel Kane's Castle Triskelion PbP

    "I'm in agreement." Anthryll says adding in "You never know what might up there." He also says it would be good for a scouting mission as well, as he looks at Rolf & smiles. Afterwards he suggests we hit the front gate.
  12. Yah this is my primary game every week. Heck even when I didn't have a weekly D&D game, I would prep for ReaperCon on what games I would run & how I could make them better visually (items on a map, tokens, etc etc) & being a gamemaster (just knowing the rules & adventure better). It's even more or so now that I have a weekly game again. Right now Starfinder is a second, due to I just started to run it on Weds & so far I have no players. Hopefully tomorrow night!!

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Sweet, while putting a order together with miniature market today, I noticed Wizkids is coming out with base packs for the medium & large sized bases. I absolutely love the slim base that they use & may eventually go to the style with all of my minis. They are coming 15 per pack for the medium & 10 for the large size. They retail for $4.99. Also they'll come in black & clear. Oddly enough, I was about to send a email off to Wizkids suggesting they put just the bases in a blister.

    Reaper Radio

    Picked up a Google Chromecast audio last weekend (found out Google knocked the price down to 15 for it so after the years its been out, I'd better get in) from Best Buy when I ordered a couple of Christmas gifts for my son, so I'm enjoying awesome sound on my home stereo through it!! Reacquainting myself with some old music I haven't listened to in many years. Currently listening to Tom Cochrane's Mad Mad World (ie the real version of "Life is a Highway"!!).

    Miniature Paints -Liquid Acrylics from RPE

    I beginning to think I collect paint as much as I collect minis so this one will be a easy pass.

    Easy Dungeon - Seamless Magnetic Dungeon Tiles

    Yah I was thinking the same thing. It's a nice concept thou & would look fantastic as the Redbrand Hideout, my players are in right now. I'm still just learning what is out there for 3d printing pieces so I'll be passing on this one as well
  17. Oddly, we sell them as well (Albertson's). Holiday colors are only available via the paint set or if they give out a color via promotional means.

    Frosty the Lich Lord

    I asked my players last night if they wanted to do a holiday themed adventure & they all said no. I guess it was do in part to Halloween one went way over then what I had planned. Plus, they want to play their normal characters more.
  19. Actually found something after tonight's D&D game that'll close the gap. Good idea but I've got a Bones 1 vampire box I can select from for BoGW +other metal treasures I'm not wanting as well.
  20. Free holiday order will probably be tomorrow, but I can't find something that I really want for 5 or so bucks to cross the 40 dollar threshold...... No way I can even come close to the $65 stocking limit. Just nothing I really want or need right now. One of the downsides of going to ReaperCon with allot of melt trade-in, I guess.

    Pathfinder: Seers of the Drowned City

    I'm gonna say as long as it's not a game breaker "be able to afford it" is pretty much about the only restriction.
  22. I think I've decided on what adventure to run: Seers of the Drowned City This is a 6th level adventure. Stats, roll 4d6 drop the lowest die No evil alignments, CN allowed HPs, Max 1st level & then either avg or roll, ignoring 1s. Gear: As I said before work with me on what you want for your level. Normal equipment, you can have, even plate if you want but remember the title of the adventure. Magical items: Hmmm it's been awhile but since this adventure is kinda of a sequel to Ire of the Storm, I'm gonna draw the treasures out of that one & post & let the party pick what they want out of that. Class: Everything, including Unchained versions Races: Hmmm work with me but I'm flexible Traits: Allowed, up to 2. Any questions: Post here & I'll do my best to answer. If you have any interest, feel free to post. First 4 are definitely in & possible 5th or 6th. With me having a home 5e game now, I'm letting my Pathfinder knowledge slip a bit so I wanna at least keep 1st ed alive for me till 2nd comes out.

    Dungeon of the Mad Mage

    Investigation 15+5 20 Nephemon overlooked the bar, hoping to see something that interested him. Nothing but the giant hole in the ground. He was focused on that more then anything.
  24. Got to the game store about 10 mins before they were closing today. I went in to get the pack of barrels from Wizkids but a guy right in front of me had it in his hands. Oh well, I ended picking up a couple figures I put back last Monday Pathfinder male gnome bard Deep Cuts Wizard's Den
  25. Black Friday Maker Geeks filament order came yesterday. Happy & sad at the same time. I ordered: Racy red, nuclear green, & whatever grey was called or so I thought. I knew I had a brown in there as I want to print up wood items & just wash them with a dark color. Anyways went digging into Gmail & came across the order invoice the day I did the order. Sure enough, Charlie Brown brown was on there. So they shorted me that one. Problem too, Charlie Brown isn't even on the sent invoice. Good thing I keep emails forever. Email sent off. We shall see how long it takes to get this order. All I know is I'm done with MakerGeeks, that's for sure. It's not CMoN's 2017 Black Friday sale wait but pretty much this order was placed the first of November & it's still not resolved......sigh.
