  2. In breaking news, Major League Baseball, which has been trying to increase the pace of play for quite a while now, has come up with a solution: MLB To Speed Up Games By Replacing Umpires With Bears

    Frostgrave: Perilous Dark

    I'm looking forward to it for the solo play aspect.
  4. FYI, the box did arrive! It's wonderful! Thanks again @Kangaroorex
  5. 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.

    Getting to Know You, October 2019

    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.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    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.
  8. 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.
  9. Eeek! 30 minutes until teaching my first class!

    Woodworks, Ltd. has large circular wood disks, including 6" and 6½" disks 1/8" thick. (Smaller sizes as well, of course.) I've found them to work great for bases.

    Hummmm don't know if it helps, but around here I have a shop that sells suplies for party dressing... Well I don't know the english term, big fancy (or tacky) banners, ballons, mantlepieces, the kind of thing you found litering weddings and such, they usually carry MDF cut in sizes from 2"-32" since the things are disposable the prices are good, I picked up enough to build myself a pair of buildings for maybe 10 bucks a wile back
  14. Custom spider bases: Guys there’s always Litko. (Can’t link to them ...commerce rule.) But if we work up an order now they’ll have it done long before the spiders ship from China... @TaleSpinner are you allowed to give spider’s exact ground foot print? @ksbsnowowl for gridded map rpg purposes is everything always, always on circles? Does anything ever get assigned a square with rounded off corners? Are rectangles, like a 6x5, ever allowed?

    Yeah, that ad worked on me. I may need to reconsider this.

    Dragons!

    Blocking out some basecoats this morning. Going to see how far I can get in one day. That's, of course, with errands and house cleaning, and a little gaming, in the mix. You know. A typical day off.

    Halloween ideas?

    Yeah, the commercialization seems to be the sad part of most holidays in the US anymore. It almost make you wonder if the candy companies were behind the hyperbole of homemade candy dangers in the late 70’s and early 80’s.

    Halloween ideas?

    It's mostly been taken over by candy manufacturers who start in August, and cheap plastic crap from China. There's a few events around town, mostly promoted by liquor and beer companies and watched closely by the cops. Here we are 2 weeks from the date and Fall/Halloween is already being replaced in stores by Christmas (some of which went up as early as July). Bah, humbug!

    Halloween ideas?

    My wife and son are going to do a 1k Halloween fun run at the airport tonight in their costumes. Before that we will be going to Boo at the Zoo where my son will be Clifford the big red dog and my daughter will be Emily. We will probably go to one of the local “trunk or treat” events at one of the churches, since we donkt get any trick or treaters in the country. There seem to be a lot of these type events in these mid size midwest towns. You may want to see if there is anything like this in your English neighborhood were you could volunteer to dress up and man a station at an event like this. I understand your frustration. We have a neighbor (1 mile away ) that used to decorate his lane with lights, mannequins, jack-o-lanterns and other halloween stuff and hardly anyone would see it because of where we live.

    Thanks .I have lots of medium and large (2 inch bases), 2 original of the largest rectangle gw monster bases and as mentioned , I made a mold of it so I can make more. Already have 6-7 premade. What I need are much larger bases. Normally I end up using plasticard or combine gw bases together And for colossal stuff, acryllic board. Right now trying to figure out how to make a base around 9 x 36 inches. And how to get a wood or mdf custom cut recessed showcase base to fit the 9 x 36 one Sanjay

    Halloween ideas?

    Given that most of us on these forums are fans of the fantasy genre I'm surprised there isn't more of a Halloween buy-in. I have an image of America as being very enthusiastic about Halloween. How would you describe Halloween in the States?
  26. If you need a 4-6" square base, you might want to consider picking up a cheap bathroom or kitchen tile from your local home improvement store. I have used them for palettes in the past, and they rarely cost more than $0.50 at that kind of size. (unless you go for a fancy, specialty tile)
