    A mithril figure I painted

    Here is a link to a mithril miniature I recently painted. I really like the way it turned out. http://www.coolminiornot.com/426431 buckyball

    Young prince miniature

    Does anyone have a suggestion for a young prince miniature. I am running a D&D game this summer that is like the classic 'damsel in distress ' only it is a young prince and the kingdom's finest female heroines must go and save him. But the only miniature of a decent prince I can find is Jofferey from Darksword. I already own this and it is already painted, so it will be my fall back. What I am looking for is a figure that is less tall and maybe more friendly looking. What I would really like is a figure that looks like young Titus Groan from the BBC show Gormengast. Thanks buckyball

    Young prince miniature

    Although a halfling might look too young, a 25mm elf may work. If I hide the ears and find one that is well dressed. buckyball

    May-be I should finish some of these...

    I like the Agatha figure.

    Anno Domini 1666

    Man, this is tempting. I could use the figures for the game Swashbuckler. But the price is pretty high. It does appear that if I back it at the $1 level, I will be able to buy individual metal figures for $9 each. But if I end up buying 10 or more then it would be better to just buy the base game. buckyball

    Game submission forms?

    On the Reapercon website, I noticed that there is a link to submit a game. But when I clicked on it it took me to the GM policies page. Is there a link somewhere for the game submission forms to fill out? buckyball

    I have not painted the old Confrontation miniatures I already own. So I won't be getting this. I am however happy to see they are back in production. buckyball

    "Overrunners" SF kickstarter

    These are very nice. I have been wanting figures just like these for a game called 'The Morrow Project' for a really long time. Between these figures and the mutants from Hate, I should have plenty of post apocalypse minis. And these look so very nice. I will have to wait and see what becomes available as a stretch goal and what will be available as an additional purchase. buckyball

    When do you need people to volunteer to run games? I seem to remember submitting games well in advance the past few years. buckyball

    ReaperCon 2018 Hotel Booking Link

    That happened to me also. I got an error message which said something like: no rooms are available in the requested date range. But the only problem was it included Wednesday. Once I had switched the date range to Thurs - Mon it was fine. buckyball

    The $119 room deal is apparently for a two room suite with two queen sized beds. I am tempted to bring a table to run rpgs in my hotel room. buckyball

    ReaperCon 2018 Hotel Booking Link

    You may wish to update the https://reapercon.com/ page. It seems to indicate that a VIP pass will include : ReaperCon Dinner Pass - you'll get four dinners at ReaperCon consisting of Wednesday's Meet N Greet, Thursday's BBQ, Friday's VIP Dinner, and Saturday's Hall of Fame Dinner. Choose Vegetarian or Regular I am guessing this is carried over from last year. And its a bummer because I took advantage of the dinner deals for the last two years. buckyball

But March, April and May need to be a lot so I can slack off in the Summer. buckyball My 2018 hobby goals include: Running a Dark Conspiracy RPG for my gaming group Running a Frostgrave/Ghost Arch game at Reapercon in September Painting the 10 miniatures from the hasslefree kickstarter Painting the 6 miniatures from the Going Native kickstarter Painting the 5 miniatures from the Bear's Head kickstarter (on track with one) Continue painting the Monthly Mithril Miniatures (On track with three) Reduce and limit the WIP box (formerly the shelf o' shame) to 6 figures.

    Adrian Smith's HATE

    Yes. All in all the price per miniature will be quite low. I am meh about the game. But I could sure use the figures to represent Reavers for my Firefly RPG. I just dont know what I am going to do with 102 of them. They will however be super easy to paint. buckyball

    What would YOU like to see taught next year

    Last year there was a presentation by Kathryn Fields on 'The rise of Fantasy Miniatures'. I went and found it interesting. But I think it could be expanded in several ways. Would more people be interested in classes/presentations on the collecting side of the hobby? buckyball
