I'm trying to be patient! I promise. I know you are all working hard over there. I have no doubt you're going constantly. 

 

Sorry for getting cranky. I really didn't mean to gripe, but getting told to check my spam folders again kind of put me over the edge there. 

I've gotten your order details from LadyStorm and I'm investigating.

 

As with the message above, I've got million things on my desk (and LS has over 1600 emails about this KS She's processing) but I promise she and i are looking into every report -- although in some cases we're waiting for the update to go out because there's a ton of good data in it

Finally got through checking all my miniatures off on my list, and trying out some fits. Nothing missing or incorrectly provided, as far as I can tell. All in all, very pleased with everything I've gotten, with one exception - the Behir. I love Behirs for reasons I can't explain, and I've got the Huge Behir mini from DDM's first Huge set, which I've used for ages. I was really happy that a Behir was in the Stoneskull expansion, and the render looked gorgeous. The problem with it is one of scale. Behirs are supposed to be huge beasts, able to constrict regular humans and generally imposing, Now that I've got it in my hands... well...

 

Spoiler

Behirs_zpsd9lnidpl.jpg

It's so much smaller. Not marginally so, but significantly smaller. While the original Behir is, honestly, a little too large to fit the base, but this is just so tiny in comparison. I'm not sure what to do at this point. One down-side, but otherwise, the minis in my possession are excellent and I can't wait to get to painting them...

Baby behir maybe?

 

I know the name but not very familiar with behirs. When were they introduced?

Before my time, TBH. I didn't start playing until AD&D 2nd edition, and they were already in the Monster Manual at that point. As per Wikipedia,  "The behir first appeared in the first edition adventure module, The Lost Caverns of Tsojcanth (1982), and was reprinted in the Monster Manual II (1983)." I was only 2 when they came out. But I used them randomly as a monster in 2nd Ed, and it stuck with me. The behir used as a random encounter in my Pathfinder Kingmaker campaign wound up becoming the mayor of a city. I just have some weird, inexplicable affection for them.

So I had to come on here and make a comment.
Grey Bones, the stiffer ones.  I LOVE THEM.

Been working on the Scarecrow from wild west Oz. The stiffer material was nice to work with. It feels stiff like a hard plastic, but still has some give. I wish there were more mini's like that. I'm won over with those.

Loved the look of that adventure but not the adventure itself. I actually didn't do much with dragons or dragon-like creatures back then. Not sure if I need a full-sized behir now but I try to find a place in an adventure for my minis. I have all the dragons except Ma'al and Stormwind coming (On the UPS truck today!) as I will need them for an upcoming adventure against giants (also stocked up on giants and yeti).

 

I wonder what size behir are in MM2?

I basically bought stoneskull for the behir alone and I'm also disappointed with the looks of it to be honest. Looks like I'm going to have to shell out for the prepaint. It's weird cause usually reaper bones are better at scaling big creatures. I also don't like that it's mashed so much into the broccoli base.

 

On the bright side the froghemoth looks way better than I thought it would. You win some you lose some.

Thanks. I sent you a PM before seeing this, so it can be safely ignored. I appreciate the response, I really do.

I got *2* Stoneskulls so my wife and I could each have a Behir. I love the sculpt even though it's a lot smaller than we expected. We already have the DDM one, so a different size is fine by us.

I am pretty sure I have that module in my pile of really OLD stuff that I just can not part with at this time.  Trying to remember if I ever ran it back in the day with my group of high school friends that played.

 

As for the size of the behir on our Bones 3...it looks pretty menacing next to Sir Forscale and could probably constrict him with ease.

My thoughts exactly. And given my current space issues in okay with it being a bit on the smaller side.

I've got no room. Something is going to have to go. It's not going to be my miniatures. Maybe get a smaller fridge.

 

My order is out for delivery.  It is keeping from getting anything done so I've wheeled myself out to the garage with the laptop to putter and wait.

    • By Knight of the Dinner Table
      Their last Kickstarter (Dwarves) was full of great, characterful sculpts and delivered very much on time. This here seems a worthy successor (look, Beagle, no Dwarves):
       
       
      Balalaika Maiden: The Gardariki Trade Caravans always include entertainers, poets and the like as well as the more pecuniary-inclined. When the day’s work is done, they string up a tune to entertain at the banquet table.
      Set 01 – Market Women: Although the actual Fair focuses on the trade of commodities and precious goods from near and far, supplies for daily life in the bustling town is provided by the peasants and small craftsmen from the city’s bailiwick. In many cases, it is the women who man the stalls and wander the market square proffering their goods.
      Set 02 – No time to chat!: As the market opens, there is always a jostle for the best spots. No time for a friendly chat then, although once the hunting grounds have been staked out, call and chatter fills the various market areas.
      Set 03 – Georg von Würstenberg, Master of the Butchers’ Guild: Formerly a mere butcher, Georg von Würstenberg made his way to the top of the prestigious Butchers’ Guild, his paunch equalling his influence and power. Some say that, along the way, various rivals ended up in his product, but not to his face! Wherever he goes, he is announced by his herald, Peter Pfefferbeis.
      Set 04 – Guardsmen of the Butchers’ Guild: The Guilds of Bruegelburg always vie for the prime spot in the City Council, and many are not above using nefarious means to advance their own position. Hence, prominent Guild members are escorted by armed guards, who also make up militias policing various areas of the town where the Town Guards cannot or will not go.
      Set 05 – Patricians: The richest and most powerful merchants of Bruegelburg are commonly called “Patricians”, and it is they who head the various factions in the City Council. As the Fair opens, they can be seen ambulating across the Grand Hall, sampling wares and making deals.
      Set 06 – Country Nobles: The City of Bruegelburg is surrounded by various small villages and fiefs, some loyal to regional potentates, some allied with the city. The heads of these fiefs invariably visit the city for the great Fair to see and be seen.
      Set 07 – Paupers of Bruegelburg: At the bottom of the social ladder, a teeming mass of paupers and beggars, pickpockets and thugs makes a living in the meaner parts of town. As the market opens, they venture forth to profit from charity and carelessness, respectively. 
      Set 08 – A Word in Jest: Entertainment is a key aspect of the Market Day, and Jesters from near and far are happy to provide. Just don’t forget to guard your purse as you watch their antics on the stage! 
      Set 09 – A jesting Tjost: An increasingly popular pageant in recent years is the “Jesters’ Tjost”, a parody of the grand tournaments that hail back to the great days of knights long past, with the entertainers striving for the most amusing way to “unhorse” each other and poke fun at their betters. 
      Set 10 – Days of Childhood: Market Day is a welcome diversion from the often dull and dreary life of kids in Bruegelburg, and gaggles of children can be seen everywhere.

      KD:M Kickstarter 2
      On November 25th, Black Friday. We will be launching our 2nd Kingdom Death: Monster campaign. The focus of the campaign will start on a reprint of the sold out Kingdom Death: Monster core set with an 1.4 ruleset. (Current version of the game is 1.31). An upgrade pack with the rulebook and updated cards will be available for existing fans.
      Beyond that my lips are sealed. Except for this tiny teaser of course.

      Looks like Twisted is coming out with a kickstarter!
       
      AND IT'S LIVE!
      We've seen quite a few of them painted up on the forum, very cool steampunk figures. The company is owned/operated by Sebastian Archer who also owns/sculpts for his other brand (Guild of Harmony). I've ordered a few GoH figures in the past and Sebastian always gets the figures out from Australia to the US very quickly.
       

       

       
      Some of the figures from Twisted -
       

       
      EXCITING NEWS! The countdown is now on: we have set a date for the launch of the Twisted Kickstarter campaign - February 16th!
       
      Note it down in your diaries and stay tuned for more information about what will be included in the campaign. As well as launching the Twisted rules and adding lots and lots of new miniatures, we have some very exciting surprises in store for you. All will be revealed soon - we can't wait!

      Looks like plastic mecha are all the rage. Between Robotech and CAV I'm going to be up to my ears in mecha...but the idea of gears that don't cost an arm and a leg may be too much to resist. Don't know that I'll go big on this one, probably one of the army boxes or a $1 pledge with some add-ons. These aren't likely to be used with their game so I'm not looking to get more than handful, definitely not more than say, 20.
       
      Says starting in October, not sure when though.

      About this project
       

      Thank you for taking the time to check out Divinity: Original Sin 2, our biggest and most ambitious RPG to date!
      A couple of quick facts about the game:
      Divinity: Original Sin 2 is a single- and multiplayer top-down, party-based role-playing game with pen & paper RPG-like levels of freedom.It features turn-based combat, a strong focus on systematic gameplay and a well-grounded narrative. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is the sequel to the critically acclaimed Divinity: Original Sin, winner of over 150 Game of the Year awards and nominations. Winner of GameSpot’s “PC Game of The Year 2014â€. Divinity: Original Sin 2 is currently in development for PC in English. Subtitles will be available in German, French, and Russian. Other platforms and languages may be announced at a later stage, once development is more advanced.
      The theme of Divinity: Original Sin 2 is how your origins affect who you are and what chances you get in life.
      At the start of the game, you pick a single character and determine your starting stats, race, and origin story.

      You'll be able to recruit up to three companions, each of whom is just as detailed as the character you're playing, with their own origin story and motivation to help you in your quest.
      This makes it possible for each companion to become a player character in multiplayer mode; every party member is equally important to the whole.

      In multiplayer, up to 4 players can play together, either cooperatively or competitively.
      During competitive questing, you’ll pursue different plot-lines from other players, often because your personal motivations are in conflict with those of the party.
      To loot or not to loot: You'll have to argue, reason, or duke it out.
      There's no obligation to compete, of course. Many party members will manage to balance their own interests with those of the party. Should you find yourself in conflict, know that it's always possible to make up afterwards.
      The important thing here is that it's you who gets to make that choice.
