  1. FAKE Star Wars spoilers

    The Star Wars/Guardians of the Galaxy crossover caught me by surprise. I actually cried when Baby Groot was placed in carbonite.
  2. It's not miniature related but today I acquired... BABY GROOT IN CARBONITE!
  3. Getting to Know You ... December Edition

    And yes.
  4. I placed a CMON order on Nov.29 and another on Nov.30. I've heard nothing since. I wasn't too worried cause I figured there'd be delays due to the large volume, but I am concerned about them shipping orders to incorrect addresses.
  5. Siri could use thoughts/prayers

    Sad to hear this.
  6. Getting to Know You ... December Edition

    Playing "guns". Playing "army". Playing cowboys and Indians. Basically it was me and my friends running around the neighbourhood shooting at each other with toy guns, often cap guns, that were realistic looking enough to likely get us a visit from the police if we were to play with them that way today. While certainly not politically correct by today's standard, I wouldn't say I'm exactly repulsed or terrified by what we did though. We meant no harm or ill will towards anyone. It was more like playing a game of tag while mimicking what we saw others do on tv. What can I say. It was a different time. It makes me a bit sad that today's realities don't allow for that level of innocence anymore.
  7. Wiz Kids Dire Wolf

    It's pretty scary looking.
  8. Getting to Know You ... December Edition

    Wet. In the morning I usually just drink water.
  9. Wiz Kids Dire Wolf

    That came out quite nicely for a quick paint job. Looks great!
  10. Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Well speaking as someone who can't even keep track of the Reaper minis I already own, I really shouldn't be buying anymore myself, but... Figmentia!
  11. Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    My own experience is that the details on human sized and smaller WizKids minis are quite shallow especially on things like faces. Humanoid minis are also sculpted with more realistic proportions, which is part of the reason for the lack of details on faces and hands. The details on midsize and larger minis is good, much like Bones. I find that the Beholder in particular is a standout mini for sculpting detail and production design. The griffon and silver dragon are other fine examples. The primer is a bit fussy on taking paint. Severity of mold lines vary from mini to mini. While the Wizkids plastic seems to be a bit stiffer than Bones, mini warpage still occurs. The worst offender I've seen is the cart. The plastic used for the wagon in the campsite set makes for some delicate pieces. Don't be surprised if the lanterns and the smokestack break off. The price structure is a bit odd. All the carded blisters were $4.95 even though some, like the one that held 3 very tiny chests, were obviously not worth the price, while the Beholder seemed like a steal. Overall I can see the WizKids line as a source for things Reaper doesn't yet make in Bones, or to add a bit of variety to those things they do, like the griffon or other creatures. I don't see them as a threat to the Bones line as there's simply so much there. I do think Reaper should move their all Bones to the darker plastic to show off the details better when hanging on the store wall. And I still prefer metal for my human/oid minis.
  12. Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Is the doggy okay?
  13. Anyone here still waiting for theirs?
  14. Um... What are you collecting the tigers for? I don't know whether to congratulate you or worry.
  15. Received Yuletide Greetings from Erifnogard today! @Erifnogard Thanks for the card and Yuletide Greetings back at you.
  16. Have you been Naughty or Nice?

    As did I.
  17. Trolls & Goblins

    Kickstarter is funded. Now I have to save up to add a giant and another troll... or two.
  18. I just want say how overwhelmed I am by your offers to find homes for my neglected minis. Touching. Truly. Dang! Can't get the purple to work on my phone!
  19. Kickstarter is Live and has reached the initial funding level: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1744629938/star-saga-the-sci-fi-dungeon-crawler?ref=nav_search From the Mantic Newsletter: "Star Saga: The Eiras Contract will see players guide a team of space mercenaries on a mission to retrieve stolen data plans from a research facility orbiting a far-off alien world. Players will take on platoons of minions, powerful alien bosses and be forced to make difficult choices as the story takes unexpected twists and turns. The spiritual sequel to Dungeon Saga, Star Saga introduces newly improved and stronger rulesets, 'learn as you go' rules for new players and, more detailed, advanced mechanics for seasoned gamers." If it wasn't for Mantics long history of fulfilment issues/delays/changes I'd be tempted by this. It sounds like the game I've been waiting for. Instead I'll likely just keep an eye on the Kickstarter and consider buying at retail.
  20. So. Is it still considered an acquisition if you find 4 boxes of Reaper minis that you totally forgot you had? Cause that happened tonight. Seriously, I don't know whether to feel embarrassed, happy, or worried. They're not even on my list of Reaper haves. Carp.
  21. Whelp. You know you're a nerd when someone mentions a naughty stocking and you don't think "oh sexy"... You think coal and miniatures.
  22. That certainly would have changed the story, and a few holiday songs, if a dwarven alchemist had shown up at the manger with her cat dragon.
  23. I'm curious if anyone here has received their Wave one shipment yet.
