While I've generally liked the look of Privateer Press minis when I've seen them painted I've never been able to talk myself into buying them.  I don't play the game and the minis aren't priced as cost efficient stand-ins for generic RPG minis.  Recently though I came across a sale which made them feel almost reasonably priced and picked up an early B-day present for myself.  Mostly I picked up Hordes given I can use them as fantasy minis, but I also picked up a few Warmachine just to see how they looked.

Celestial Fulcrum Battle Engine - Seems like a nice terrain piece.  I'll have to take a closer look and see if I can magnetize the three druids to be removable

Hmmm,  where did you pick them up?  Been looking for an Glacier king for a while.  I usually refuse to pay more than about 30% of list for these, because that's about what I figure they are worth so if I go after a specific figure I usually have to buy large lots and part out the rest to get my money back. 

 

For me its the old 'love the mini, hate the prices' of GW all over again so most of my army is older, but still fun to paint.  I mean how can you get anything but fun painting a sky blue troll?  and the everblight army has one additional great feature:  no eyes!  they are all either blinded requiring dead white sockets, or they have no eyes to start with.  Really nice to do after you finish a set of KD:M with super small eyes.

 

for Acquisitions today I received my replacement teas for the ones I burn through the most.

Good choices, both of them. The dreadnoughts and bits can definitely be repurposed, that's how I'm trying to turn a Rhino into a Predator.

I really like your posts, not only are they thought provoking and informative, but there's a certain melody in the way they're written, such that I feel like curling up with something warm and giving it a big hug in front of a roaring fire.

You indubitably have the most excellent of tastes, good sir. God Save the Queen. ^_^

That's a lot of gorgeous Circle minis.... 

 

One of these days, I'll get into Warmachine because I like the minis, and maybe the lore too...  And why not, it seems like a fun game either way. 

 

... Cheaper too, compared to 40k.

 

 

 

Myself, only thing I've acquired recently is group shots of some of my armies - although hopefully soon I'll wind up buying "a few" Catachans with meltaguns, because apparently I'm short "a few"

Alas, these were mostly about 50% off MSRP rather than 70% off so they may still be a bit expensive for you. There were also only two Glacier Kings and I believe they are both gone now, but there were still some Celestial Fulcrums in stock after I placed my order.   Anyway, head to Game Kastle (the old FRP link still directs there) and take a look in their clearance bin.  There are a couple hundred PP units in there, but I don't know if they are just getting rid of overstock or if they are getting out of the Warmahordes business.

Yesterday the evil river deposited Mordenkainen's Tome of Foes to my door. Haven't had a chance to flip through it yet.

For some reason, this Amazon vendor had the Dark Crystal boardgame priced at $17 instead of the regular $53 retail price.

So now I have Skeksis to paint.

It's a nice addition thou there is allot of reprinted monster pages from the previous hardbacks, especially Out of the Abyss.

Well, since I didn't get any of the campaign/adventure books, I'm okay with that. ::D:

Not sure how I feel about that. 

It's nice that Crowley's okay with reprinted material; lacking the other books, Crowley might not even have known until someone mentioned it.

...but at fifty bucks a hardback, it irks me to think they're already recycling stuff.

I didn't know until I saw it mentioned here, either. I don't have any of the adventure books except Yawning Portal, and have no intention of getting them - so it works for me.

 

That said, Mordenkanen's has been a very disappointing 5e purchase for me. There is very little I'll use in there. It will join Yawning Portal on the shelf, where it will probably remain, not even to be pulled down for nostalgia reasons.

I did not preorder it.. hoping for a copy for fathers day,  but am not holding my breath (even though the lad who had the unsubtle hint dropped on gets it free with credit from DMing at the FLGS)..

 

Always liked the Gith races however, so will eventually at least look into it..
