  1. Just heard a TV news person say putting a smart phone in selfie mode is an OK way to view the eclipse. Over the shoulder.
  2. I would much rather have a Cat Dragon sitting on that big plinth rather than a Zombie Dragon. Just sayin' Love that plinth! Zombie Dragon...
  3. Yes. Well done. I am going to add it also. I especially liked the notation at the bottom '...not necessarily the final sculpt...' @Reaper Ron @evhorne969 If You'd entertain some suggestions...About the Roc? and the Rocks holding him? It would be really nice if the bird was a separate piece from the supporting terrain. Somehow. (And I realize that could be a big ask from an engineering perspective.) But I would like to be able to customize it with a big flight stand. It looks like it is attached to the terrain at the tail in the render. Not asking for extra parts as an option, it would just be nice if the bird could detach. The big stones need more fine texture (and I won't be surprised if I am told that is already planned).
  4. Posting for Glitterwolf...
  5. That does work. I have seen it. My two FLVLOTs did that for me during the last eclipse. FLVLOT = friendly local very large oak tree .
  6. Unicode is moste clever
  7. I heard from several sources it will ruin a cell phone camera. No viewing with that. Maybe I will make a pinhole camera out of a box.
  8. I had important British whodunnit TV this evening.
  9. Photobucket holding pictures hostage
  10. @Argentee you did an outstanding job taking over where I left off.
  11. I do have a good idea what is involved. In the SWAGuesstimates below "n" is a single digit number. Concept Art ..................... $n00 3D Electronic Sculpt ....... $n00 3D Print Prototype .......... $n0 to $n00 3D Sculpt Rework ........... $n0 to $n00 3D Print Master ............... $n00 3D Laser scanning, prototyping, rendering, and approval of digital file ... $n00 Casting and Machining two blocks of stainless steel from the approved digital file .... $n000 to $nn000 I do not know the real numbers but I have a good idea of their orders of magnitude. So all in, to get to the point where there are two blocks of stainless steel locked into a machine, my guess is around $11,200 US Dollars. At that point, eleven or twelve thousand bucks in the red, it is possible to crank out PVC Plastic figurines.
  12. They are all busy mining the raw Bonezite™ ore that will be needed to produce all these new Bonesium™ figures.
  13. All the Bones bears are polar bears until they get painted...
  14. Terrain I wanted to write a couple of words about something from the livestream video that is not going to happen. There was a big 6x6 inch [8x8?] plinth that was previously shown as a display base for a giant cobra. It won't appear in B4. I think this is wise. Because...any scratch terrain builder can whip those out easy-peasy. A novice at terrain building could follow a SBStep and turn one out as their first piece. It would be the simplest thing to try as a first piece. What would be an excellent idea (for terrain) is to grab the plinths from the Greek statues, the Zombie dragon's big plinth, the dragon turtle's base, maybe Kalydrax's Hill and offer them as a group add-on. I do realize there could be obstacles to this. Mainly that some of these items are planned to be in a steel two part mold along with whatever goes on top of them. But maybe now is the time to plan things out so that some of them can be cast separately? Find out if the new dies to be created can be built with valve kits[?] or parts so that it is possible to cast only the plinths. What if the digital model of Kaladrax Hill was reduced a little (maybe 75%) and it reappears this time as a stand alone terrain piece (leverage a pre-existing design FTW)?? What if the Greek statue bases were added around the edges, maybe at a second size (meant to fit any 28-30mm figure) plus the original and all that was a Terrain mold? Just spitballing some ideas. I think some British company is in the business of making highly detailed, incredibly expensive, plastic terrain features. They do manage to sell some. But the business of making highly detailed, reasonably priced, plastic terrain features looks wide open to me. The things to focus on would be very detailed, **conveniently dimensioned, structures that would be time-consuming for a scratch builder to create. A big plinth that could be slapped together out of two pieces of blue or pink EPS insulation foam...never mind. Good call going back to the drawing board on that. Instead Think Arcane Gates that lead to islands on ***The Sea Between the Worlds™ kitted out with steps that **perfectly fit 25-32mm figure bases, with lots of nice detail (friezes, heraldry, arcane runes)...just as a for instance. ***
  15. What wait? There is one? (I saw a huge Croc and a Dire Boar today...they said there was a third but I thought it was something un-Cat-like.)
