    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    For me, it really is using the miniatures in a game. If I paint too much and start to burn out, it means I am not playing enough. Playing I start to think about how the game would be improved with some character figures or game tokens or terrain. And then that motivates me to paint. buckyball

    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    Film editing. Yesterday I recovered some lost footage from my friend's SD card. I also helped another friend with something called a low pass filter in Adobe Premiere. buckyball This is a tricky question. I probably average 8 hours a week painting. But then there is time I spend in what my girlfriend calls 'miniature land' which is mostly idly gazing at figures on CMoN and reading TMP ect.... There I am pretty sure I devote too much time. buckyball

    This figure is a dragon made by Dragontooth miniatures back in the 70s. One of these dragons appears on the cover of the book 'Dicing with Dragons'. But it is painted green. This dragon is a contender for the oldest dragon. But I think that distinction goes to the minifigs dragon from their faux LotR miniatures line. buckyball

    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    This may be the most valuable figure I have. And I have 3 of them, none got painted. I do have some older figures, like this Vallor from Ral Partha.

    August Hobby Goals!

    Man I sucked at painting in August. But in my defense, I did go to Reapercon and a local convention. And that ate up a bunch of hobby energy. Next year I will plan on not getting anything done in August. That way I won't be disappointed. buckyball

    Tentative Pathfinder and Starfinder Rounds

    Are there going to be any Starfinder games on Saturday? buckyball
  10. It might be convenient to start a box sooner. That way it can circulate at Reapercon. buckyball
  11. How may I play in a Starfinder game at Reapercon?

    The Future of Metal

    I think the market is approaching an inflection point, where more minis are made of plastic, but I doubt metal will be completely phased out. buckyball

    100 down, 2 to go.

    Dude, that is awesome. I am lucky to get even half the figures I come home from Reapercon with painted. I think I will set as a goal to have painted all the figures I buy at the convention before the next convention. buckyball

    ReaperCon 2018 RPG Events Thread...

    What games would people like to see at ReaperCon? buckyball

    Figures you can only get at the factory? (For melt)

    You may have heard right, but with a caveat. At last year's ReaperCon I requested some figures that were not in the catalog (NIC), from a long time ago; and they cast them for me. And it was for melt. The website used to have a NIC list, but I can't find it now. If you can find a copy of this, you could probably get a stock number for the figures you want.

  22. What does it take for a miniatures company to sponsor an award? Have you ever contacted Mithril miniatures about being a sponsor for a manufacturer's award? buckyball

    Halfling boy....

    Mithril has Hobbit children. But unless you want a very young Hobbit boy, you might want to go with a regular 25mm Hobbit. The scale difference will sell that it is a child. buckyball

    any thoughts on a bechomel mini?

    Anime eyes? What do you think a goat's eyes look like? buckyball
