Jack o'lantern I carved for the contest we had at work yesterday:
The pumpkin had a crease so I decided to try and use that feature as part of my carving.
I didn't win, but I don't care, it was fun to do.
Most people see something similar to that. But for people with typical eye dominance, one of those images will mostly be discarded by the brain. It's still available if you concentrate on it, but not otherwise. I'm right-eye dominant, so by default I'll use the images from the right eye for sight alignment. With concentration, I can instead use the left-eye images instead (confirmed by closing the right eye), but it feels wrong.
One of the things many shooting coaches will tell you is to keep both eyes open when you shoot, but if your brain isn't picking a preferred image, I wonder whether closing an eye might not work better in your specific case.
So most all of my RPG mini's are either the old D&D Miniatures line from Hasbro (2003-2010) or the new WizKids offerings from Icons of the Realms and Pathfinder Battles. Every single one of those minis is on a round base (some of the early Large mini's, until ~2005, were on 40 mm bases), with the notable exception of the old DDM iconics dragons (I forget what they called them). The Gargantuan White Dragon, Black Dragon, and Blue Dragon, and the Colossal Red dragon (which they actually made on the wrong-size 8" base... It should be 6" to properly fit the game rules of the time).
So I could do squares, but I don't really have a desire to do so.
Thanks for that idea, TGP. I would never have thought to look there, but you are right, that might just work perfectly.
In the same vein, it's really odd that most grocery stores sell dice bags. They're REALLY expensive, but they do come with a free bottle of Canadian whiskey...
I did know of Litko, and similar acrylic disc manufacturers. I was just looking at some on eBay last night. But it will a long while before I'll actually need this base... I think I can wait to order them until 2021.
I've finally had a chance to sit down and have a good look through the contents of Bones 5. I have to say that I think the content is the best yet. Bones 2-4 were good but a little underwhelming after Bones 1, but this time around I think it's fantastic.
