  1. The Frost Collection: Version 2.0

    US dollars are currently worth more than Australian dollars.
  2. Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

    My biggest Tip for using Dwarven Forge (which completely changed my games): Gather some of those rigid plastic real-estate signs that litter the side of the road and assemble your dungeons on them. Two signs (side by side) are the perfect size for a dungeon (and dining room table). These plastic signs also allow you to easily move your Dungeon off the table afterwards, and to stack/store all your Dwarven Forge pieces. The plastic signs can also be placed on top of your dungeon, to hide the layout from your players until it is time. Most signs have a blank/white side (make sure to have that side facing up when using them)
  3. Mantic Terrain Crate

    After backing Reaper and Dwarven Forge, this was the next thing I needed. So I was curious: 1) Where did you get your furniture? 2) What were you wanting instead of furniture? 3) Is this more lop-sided than say, Reaper KS's? I recall in Reaper's original KS that if you didn't get a core 'Vampire' set, you were really 'leaving minis on the table'... I bought three Vamp sets despite already having plenty of minis already :)
  4. DCM BEHEMOTH

    In 3.5e, the Tarrasque was the Iconic campaign-ender against which optimizers measured their end-game prowess. I've used it several times (and would've loved to have had a 'mini' for it). In 4e, this changed to Orcus (which they eventually made a 'mini' for). I'm not sure what the new popular 'standard' is for 5e, but the Tarrasque is still pretty iconic. I've never once had an occasion to use my Epic sized dragon mini (Ancient Wyrms are just too powerful, intelligent and complex)... but the Tarrasque has always been the go-to epic punching bag.
  5. The nice lady that runs Arkham Bazaar has a short (week-long, almost over) Kickstarter for: Cthulhu Mythos Petroglyphs Interesting pictures of Call of Cthulhu props!... definitely worth looking at. I'm a regular CoC player that has pledged for previous Kickstarters she's done (including the CthulhuCon ones) and they've always been good quality and prompt.
  6. Tabletop Props: Tent

    Yup, these turned out pretty amazing! For my own use, I hot-glue all the little tiny pieces into place (the campfire now permanently has a frying pan beside it)
  7. Cthulhu Wars

    Ditto. However, I was able to retain the original color schemes when painting them (using colored primers, and minimal hand painting... and Dip to highlight the details). I could detail the colors I used if anyone was interested. You could just Dip them. Besides being quick, that'd save their original colors while still highlighting the details.
  8. Cthulhu Wars

    I'm surprised no one is talking about the content yet. Are we avoiding spoilers or something? Dat insert! btw: I for one am very happy with the contents. The miniatures feel well made: sturdy, excellent detail, not overly rigid... exactly as I wanted (after being spoiled by bones, which are so easy to store). Color me impressed. Anyone know if we can paint/dip them without priming, like we were able to do with bones? My Bones skeletons and mummies were the easiest things ever (very little done before dipping), and I was wondering if I could repeat that success with Cthulhu Wars miniatures.
  9. Paranoia Kickstarter

    For some plastic, pre-painted miniature options: some ideas could be gleaned from the Gamma World miniature proxy list here.
  10. Possible because you can still get cases of them for cheap. I bought many cases (i.e. 8 keeps or gates) for $15. Evidently no one else was buying them.
  11. Upworks Vertical Building Terrain!

    10"x10" (inches) or 10'x10' (in-game feet)?
  12. Tact-Tiles - Mike McConnell/BC Products

    Ditto. Despite having a plethora of other terrain products, these have remained my most handy. (not that I have any reason to push this KS... I already got mine ;)
  13. Painted Tabletop Props (Relaunched)

    Interesting: the early bird special is limited by time, not number (i.e. it's good through tomorrow: expires at 6/22, 9 am mountain time). I like that idea... I just got so used to quickly scanning the pledge options for the 'Yellow Text' signifying an early bird deal.
  14. Painted Tabletop Props (Relaunched)

    That is indeed a nice, versatile wagon. Kudos on the design. I'm definitely in. I hope it funds (since this is exactly the sort of stuff I like to see).
  15. Infamy Miniatures KS

    His website says "Infamy Miniatures is a new company producing high quality 32mm scale resin models." Plus, no one in their right mind would focus on 54mm instead of 32mm, and he even says on his website: "I'm a huge fan of Kingdom Death, Studio McVey, Banelords and most notably, Wyrd Miniatures. There's no point hiding the fact that I've taken inspiration from their business models. I would be stupid if I didn't go some way towards following in the footsteps of companies that I admire."
