  1. Ah, so that's what happened to the Ataribox. Guess this time at least they didn't yank pre-sales the day before they were supposed to start. Still, between the December 2017 shenanigans and Atari having turned to some considerable extent into a gambling brand over the last couple of years, my wallet says no to betting on this one.

    What was your favorite D&D game hack ?

    Back in AD&D 2e days, I once started a campaign about a world essentially going to war over an elf having become a paladin. Group scattered into the four winds before I could take that to its planned conclusion, which was to be a rather cosmos-shattering even that would make 'forbidden' race/class combinations the norm. Unlike the actual transition to D&D 3rd ed., mine would've also seen gnomes become master reanimators obsessed with the Necrognomicon.

    Warrior angel miniatures

    @NecroMancer, you might want to specify whether you're after a particular look. Because the Reaper line alone has just about everything I can think of, even the "male armored but without a helmet" (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/angel/sku-down/03066) style that I had trouble finding for a bit.

    Traveller Character Generator Game

    Army Trooper Xia Sun 886576 Age 22 1 term Cr10,000 Skills: Air/Raft-1, Rifle-1 Service History: Attempted to enlist in Army. Enlistment accepted. Denied reenlistment after first term. Well, that's an uncharacteristically short, boring, non-lethal career by Traveller standards. EDIT: Hit refresh and got another rather atypical result: a scout who uneventfully lived beyond 30. Scout Hamza Lee 927798 Age 34 4 terms Cr100,000 Skills: Air/Raft-1, Electronics-1, Jack-o-T-2, Mechanical-1, Navigation-1, Pilot-1, Vacc Suit-2 Benefits: Low Passage Service History: Attempted to enlist in Scouts. Enlistment accepted. Voluntarily reenlisted for second term. Voluntarily reenlisted for third term. Voluntarily reenlisted for fourth term. Chose not to reenlist after fourth term.

    Your impression of space mouslings ?

    I've always wanted to mod a mouseling with a robe to carry a force sword: Darth Squeaker.

    Raging Heroes: Dark Elves and Sisters

    Having just frustrated myself a bit with the atrociously tooled bad resin stuff, I can safely say RagingHeroes has knocked that company from Nottingham off my personal Overpriced Crap Never To Buy Again throne. I also feel a certain urge to peddle bridges in Brooklyn to folks actually buying this at retail...

    Feral Elves by Westfalia

    Same here. They look like they should make pretty nice 'normal' wood elves, but they don't seem to me like they're savage enough to be feral.
  8. Laced shoes? Might be a bit unusual, but would not be unheard of. As for the stockings, they don't seem to be sculpted, so just don't paint them on. So ultimately I'd be more concerned about the skirt being a bit out of place for the periodd on a model that does not have a word like "strumpet" in the title ;)
  9. I literally cannot think of a reason to do a project like this without also having a blue bird tending troll available. Also, I ad no idea the man would look this awesome as a burger munching halfling.

    The Barbarians Warband

    I like some of these, but I really don't think I'll ever buy from a company that says shipping single miniatures from Spain to the EU costs $15.
  11. Oh dear. Just what I've been putting off finding good stuff for. My poor wallet.

    Fantasy RPG Pre-Painted Miniatures

    So totally that. In fact, the human adventurers had me thinking there were MageKnight figures looking almost exactly like some of them. (Though I suppose the paint jobs on those were even more mediocre.) None of the poses seem particularly interesting or unique, either. Most importantly, ah... these don't really look better than Legendary Encounters, are in the same price range at best, and Reaper has discontinued that line. I can't quite see there being enough of a market for similar pre-painted plastics just because transparent bases.

    Bunny girls

    Well, time to find an excuse to run a pulp game set in a 1960s gentlemen's club...

    Kentrona Miniatures

    On their company website, they have an actual photograph of an actual blistered miniature, offered as an in-stock product. So I guess the Kickstarter is simply meant to garner attention for the product line? That train wreck is going nowhere...

    Greebo Games Legacy Vault

    Am I the only one thinking Fang'n'Hood seems sort of wasted as a 32mm kit? There's no use for it in gaming, anyways, and this really looks like it'd be so much better to paint to an acceptable detail level in 54mm for those of us who're not Golden Demon/Sophie winners.
