    Blood Red Skies

    The group I play bolt action with at a local store is starting to get into it. I haven’t got a chance to check it out yet. I noticed at the local gaming convention several of the historical gamers in my area where buying into it.

    Happy Birthday, Wren!!

    I am a little late to the post. I hope you had a great birthday and thanks for all you taught me about painting minis at that gencon class interrupted by a fire alarm.
  3. Reaper customer service has taken good care of me in the past. It’s part of why I have remained a consumer of their products since the late 90s.

    How to cover bases on these minis?

    I use oatey fixit stick to fill bases. It’s a plumbers putty. It has a rapid cure time so it’s not much use for sculpting but is prefect for the sort of jobs green stuff is too expensive for. A word of warning, you should wear some gloves with it as can irritate your skin.
  5. I got it with Reaper bones 2 or 3. Both of those shipped out in the summer if I remember correctly. So freezing is unlikely and I live in the same time zone as Reaper HQ so I doubt it traveled to me by air (where it could have frozen in the plane’s hold) A friend of mine suggested it might have a gel medium.
  6. I recently purchased reapers NMM gold triad to experiment with non metallic metal painting. Upon first applying the paint to my wet pallet I found it to have a slightly stringy consistency. It was really well shaken, so I don’t think this was the issue. I painted with it and was pleased with the results, so it may be the intended consistency.

    RIP Anthony Bourdain

    I first discovered Anthony Bourdain thru his book kitchen confidential. I loved the way he wrote about food and the business of making it. His writing made me nostalgic for the jobs I held in my late teens. I loathed those jobs and yet he made me miss them. He wrote in that book about traveling to France as a child and having a meal that truly opened his eyes to the world of food. I had a very similar experience in a far less exotic local on a childhood vacation. Mine was soup so good I can still remember everything about it down to the bowl it was served in. I watched his shows allot after I lost my last job. They were a sort of visual comfort food for me. RIP Tony

    ISO Reaper Gnome/halfing mini

    I am a big fan of this gnome. He has been used by a few of my players in different settings. The crossbow is very easily modded. On of them made it into an SMG for Shadowrun. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/gnome/sku-down/02959

    R.I.P. Tom Petty

    The first time I slow danced with a girl was to the song Free Falling. He was a big part of the sound track of my life.

    RIP Jerry Pournelle

    I always enjoyed whet he would pop up on the tech podcasts I listen to. He was very well researched and had some interesting opinions.

    Happy Birthday Hibou !!!!

    Thank you all for the kind wishes.
  12. We are inside the last hour. The tension mounts as the totals creep up.
  13. I've gotta get that tree man. I have a small forests worth of mageknight and others assorted tree men. That model will fit in perfectly.
  14. That kobold sorcerer might have to be a future PC for me. I always thought the reaper kobold minis straddled the tiny little dog man / tiny little dragon man line. But it looks like with the addition of the new female kobolds they have firmly placed themselves in the dog man camp.
  15. I like those bandits and the additions to the expansion set. Keep the add ones coming Reaper.
