    Just got the box. Yep, this thing is big. No idea how the BGG'ers who spent *way* more money than I did will cope with all the sprues...!
  2. Have you tried Meetup? Walking the dog is a great idea. Just make sure they can't get at any kid's candy (if a kid tries to pet the dog without asking you). Put a dog walker light on the dog in case the SUV's come out at night, like they do in the states.
  3. Brother Roberto from the Pinnacle Entertainment Group's Sixth Gun RPG Miniatures set. More miniatures from the set : https://www.pegforum.com/forum/savage-worlds/savage-worlds-3rd-party-licensees/3665-sixth-gun-rpg-miniatures

    Original one looks too much like a poo-beast and they're going with this guy. Now, he's only rubbing his butt on the ground. :D

    Just got the shipping notice, although the package hasn't shipped yet. Looking forward to getting a better idea how much over my head I'm in with these mini's. I think I'll just proxy with mini's for now with my Homestar action figures... :P

    Conan is about it. They had some criticism about the models looking soft, but that was from the translucency of the model. Haven't read any other criticisms, and nothing stood out when I gave an initial look at my models. Mythic hasn't put out a miniature as large as the dragon before. The dragon's wings are the only assembly. Miniatures are otherwise pre-assembled. I've only painted *one* of my Bones dragons, and it sure wasn't Dragons Don't Share! Probably skipping JoA, but the KS is fun to watch...
  7. Crackle paint is a pain. The *thicker* it is, the better it works, and miniature-level painting is on the thin side. The idea is that the top layer of the paint dries before the bottom layers. The top layers contract "faster" than the bottom layers, resulting in cracks, much like muddy flats. https://www.wikihow.com/Crackle-Paint You can see at :46 that the crackle paint doesn't crack at a thickness thicker than most miniature painters use. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bfSsbchweA4 Found a Vallejo crackle paint video. Haven't used it : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q5k1nwptshM
  8. A few orcs stomping off the tabletop! Mantic Orcs Army set painted with Army Painter Greenskin paint set. Assembly-line tutorial in the BGG Kings of War forum! https://boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/85204/kings-war/forums/0

    Best not to pay shipping until they finalize shipping costs and send the email that it's ready. Even then, I'd wait a day (yeah, like I can) or a few hours in case there are still unexpected PM issues. See BBG's KDM forum for the shipping thread.

    I guess the good news about KS (or at least crowdfunding) is that it's allowing projects from different regions to be offered. This means if you're outside of the US or UK, there's a better chance of finding a creator local to you, and hence, lower shipping prices than from overseas, unlike retail which is mostly imports. In the last few weeks, I've seen two AUS terrain KS, and a Germany dungeon tiles one started today as well. It should be even easier to purchase terrain once high-resolution 3D printers become more affordable. Maybe I'll have my existing backlog painted by then...!

    Last 12 hours! Some backers did a recount and the Docks set now has 120 pieces plus a game mat, not 88, for $75. The display area is the same (the pier pieces were separated from the dock tiles).

    First Created, but based in Germany, so lower shipping rates there. Has a weekly show, so has some stake in getting the project fulfilled. EDIT: See the Forge Prints Adventurescapes KS to see their dungeon tiles as well, particularly if you're in the US. 12 hours left.
  13. Mimics from the Forge Prints Mimic Invasion Kit! Would have liked to do more work on them, but there's a lot of miniatures to paint, and I'm fine with tabletop for gaming. If you play Frostgrave, mimics are pretty darn good pieces for the small, medium, and large constructs! Forge Prints's Adventurescape game tiles and dungeon accessories KS end today. Docks, tavern, and alchemist's dungeon lair. 88-100+ pieces for $65. <-- WIP
  14. Also see BoardGameGeek's MoM forum for painted miniatures. The Miniatures Page has a painting services subforum you can ask for prices. You could always negotiate for trade or something other than money. Trade usually results in getting more stuff than being paid.
