  1. Alright. Friends, we have water. Housemate has volunteered to check the washing machine. .. he's a brave man; there are no filters on the system yet! (that's next; they didn't have time to do that today)

  2. Pezler, you're in Saskatchewan. There is no way I am going to go and get something printed. It would require me to go to Saskatchewan.

  3. Well here it is, as completed as I could get before I had to give it back. Feel free to comment, flame, or critique. I'm mostly happy with as it is.

  5. Here it is - quick and simple, inspired by looking at crocodile pictures and then adding a pink mouth.... it looked better, even if it's not what crocs seem to have - maybe it's the human?

  6. Painted up the Bones V boulderkin - and I love them! Fun, quick painting, got to try three color schemes, and gave me some ideas for the table - another model that outperformed my expectation of 'meh - some boulder people'

  7. The Frost Salamander from Nolzur's has a wonderful chunky head and heavy-jawed face, and that won me over. It also has six legs, so not your average Earthly amphibian. Good thing there's always room for planetary monsters! And it's a great canvas for patterns; salamanders are often brightly spotted or striped. Let's make him a denizen of the steaming swamps of Retro-Venus! More angles: Bombshell makes some amazing sci-fi ladies and this is one such! I took some liberties with my interpretation as a Venerian Amazon--the sculpt indicates that Wanda here is wearing leggings or tight pants rather than the singlet I painted, but her headgear, belt, and boots fit very nicely with Hydra's Valkeeri sculpts. More angles: Let's put the two together! Why does a huge predator need vivid warning coloration? Well, on Retro-Venus, there's always another, bigger predator. I *do* love putting bright colors on weird beasties. Hope you enjoy!

  8. I'm not sure that you meant this the way that I'm reading it and it seems the way that other people are reading it, so I want to clarify that this statement as I understand it is not correct. This pledge manager functions mostly the same as previous ones - once you close out (aka "lock in") a single order, at this time, that single order cannot be changed. That does not mean that any unused credit is lost. If you wish to make a new order, all you have to do is go back into the pledge manager and add more things to your cart and you can check out as many times as you like, just like in the previous pledge managers. If you look in the Order History after checking out, the top section is "All Rewards" and then when you scroll down beneath that it lists "Your Orders" where it will show you the individual orders you have made if you choose to make more than one. Not being able to remove items that you already checked out for (aka "locked in") is no different than previous pledge managers. Check out with the items that you're certain that you want, hold off on things that you're on the fence about for a possible later additional order. The difference here is that 1. you need to click the link in the email you receive (titled "Claim Your Pledge for Bones 6") in order to link your kickstarter account with the pledge manager account. If you skip this step, it will take you to the late backer version of the pledge manager with higher than kickstarter prices. 2. The shipping will be assessed and charged at a later date closer to fulfillment. There is a FAQ associated with the pledge manager which is here and may answer some other assorted questions: https://b6.reapermini.com/faq If you have not yet received your Bones 6 PM email, that is not a reason to worry yet - they have not yet sent out a kickstarter update at this time, as the pledge manager is rolling out slowly so that bugs can hopefully be caught now rather than later.

  9. All Martians have psionic powers to some extent, for telepathic communication at the very least. A few possess talents far beyond the Martian norm. Undisciplined use of these powers could cause disruptions to the usually orderly Martian society, but a species learns a thing or two over the course of a million years. A rigorous program of focus, meditation, and training out in the Crystal Wastes will hone those wild talents to a suite of keen, well-directed tools. This fellow, from CP Miniatures (Sci-fi, Non-Commissioned, Alien Sensei) is one such psionic anchorite, learning proper and responsible use of telekinesis, remote viewing, illusion, and mental manipulation. Please do not call them a "space wizard" even though it seems quite accurate by Earth standards; the Martian academicians insist it is very different altogether from space wizardry and very disrespectful to confuse the two. The nuances of the distinction are lost on Earthlings, but then so very few of us have psionic talent in the first place. Here's the Anchorite with a few other Martians, including 50197, whose paintjob got a touch-up. Keep watching the skies, cadets!

  13. My 3d printing journey continues. I Decided to make a diorama featuring an early villain from the DnD game I'm running. I Give you Lord Malman! Or as my players referred to him Lord BadMan. Almost all elements where 3d printed. And purchased off my mini factory. The Nelfeshnee was from realm of paths. The necklace and other jewelry was added by me with good old greenstuff. I'd love to here what you all think. More pics can ne found here. https://www.instagram.com/p/CeCPkH1OBGS/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

  14. Just testing a color scheme and getting my paint recipe worked out before tacking a whole army of these dudes. Basic color is spray primed Army Painter purple, then I hit the front with Army painter yellow spray. Dry brush everything with a bone color, wash everything with purple ink, then wash the backside with black ink. Testing out the weapons with grey paint, dark tone wash, then paint on Green Stuff World chrome paint on flat surfaces. Overall I am really happy with the color scheme, it captures a cool alien vibe and is easy and super fat to paint. Now to dig out the hundred or so models I have collected to fill out an armies worth.

  16. Hey everyone, I hope you are having a good Friday. This week, I started painting a GW Dwarf unit from the 90's. This one is a Giant Slayer sculpted by Aly Morrison. It sits on a 25mm Stony base by Txarli Factory. As I have two of these models, I wanted it to be different from the other. So I removed one of his axes and added the runes to his ax handle. Orange being the dominant color on these Slayers I opted for purple on the base. I thought dark purple would be a great color to represent a deep underground setting or a battlefield in the Chaos Wastes, where my heroes will eventually face the forces of Chaos. I only use Reaper MSP paint and will add a color list below. Reaper MSP Color list;

  17. it’s more about the stuff that’s in the kitchen than the stuff that’s not in the kitchen. Like, tons of boxes and tools taking up the counter space. Currently, Sephy’s favorite movie is Pacific Rim. Her grandma is sick of it because everytime Sephy just wants “kaiju!! Stompy robot!” 🤣

  19. When I was a single digit age child my parents moved house. The movers just stacked all the furniture in one room (Den?) near the front of the new house. I loved it! There were all these tiny crannies and nooks only 4(?) year old me could get into. A fort with secret passages! Then they sent me off to grandma's for the day. When I got back, it was all fixed; I was SOOOOoooo disappointed; the parents were sad when I didn't like the new setup. I MISSED MY FORT!! But, they were all proud they'd gotten the house sorted out. Children look with different eyes.

  20. Edit: guindyloo beat me to it. Pledge manager basics tips and tricks. I see a lot of questions here and on discord so here's a rundown: 1 wait until you get the email for the pledge manager and then make sure to sign in or sign up with that email address. If you goto checkout early (before your email is linked or with a different email than you used for Kickstarter) then you will pay higher late backer prices 2. It doesn't matter if you picked core set or addon/pm access In KS. Your entire pledge amount just counts as credit for the pledge manager. Add whatever you want now and and either keep the leftover credits for later or pay the extra you owe (not including taxes and shipping) 3. Once you checkout you cannot remove/change those items. You can add more and checkout again. Each "order" will be lumped together and ship together. 4. You will not be charged tax or shipping yet. You will need to pay those later when your order is ready before they will ship it. 5. While the pledge manager is open you can change your address from the settings link at the top of the PM. I'm sure it will be easy to change your address after the pm closes until they ask you to pay for shipping. 6. You can get in if you didn't pledge on Kickstarter but the prices are higher. 7. Is there any benefit to checking out now instead of sitting on my items and waiting for power ups waiting to pay extra etc? Probably no benefit to you personally except for budgeting/spreading out payments, but it does give reaper valuable information on what is popular and might possibly influence power ups. Let me know if I missed anything big.

  21. Pirate ship, hands down. Unpainted. Smallest is probably a familiar from one of the familiar packs. I don’t think I would. All the periods I’m interested in would probably burn me as a witch.

  22. Last couple days have been a bit rough. Apparently my crap respiratory system isn't doing a very good job of getting rid of Covid. Slowly improving now I think, with the help of a anti-inflammatory inhaler. Due to that my energy level has been non-existent for a couple day. A little better today, so I did manage to finish pinning the 2 units of Nachtjagers together. That exhausts my supply of Konflikt '47 figs, so I'm looking at German Pioniers (Engineers). An interesting box as it comes with spues of Blitzkreig German Infantry and then a couple of baggies of metal bits to make them engineers. I need to figure out what I should be building out of the box.

  23. Another Bones Dwarf for the Coffee Dwarf adventuring party... Proudly displaying his allegience to Maxwell House. Including his Dwarf sized coffee mug, slightly yellowed due to lack of washing. Which would violate the 1st Dictate of Agamenthar "Thou Shalt Not Wash Thy Mug and Remove the Accumulation of Blessed Flavor Therein."

  26. Reasonable shipping. More if you're not expecting it to be crumpled and mangled. Be aware of the chance of paper pirates intercepting shipment.

  28. If 1 is not strict and 10 is the Catholic Church, I’d say around 5. My parents engaged in what is called “free range parenting” nowadays, but in the 80s it was just parenting. We had rules, if we followed them, things were good, if we didn’t, they came up with creative punishments. Like the time I drew something on a shelf in permanent marker and had to sand it off. I think my parents were more concerned that we grow up to be decent people, than they were concerned about us growing up to be obedient.

  31. Hello All, Here is a metal 02716 "Demonic Lasher" aka "Demogorgon" I completed a few weeks ago. This is a metal miniature and is a bit heavy. It would be nice to see an updated version of the Demonic Lasher miniature from Reaper. Though this one does look very much like the original Demogorgon illustration in the original D&D Monster Manual. Thank you for looking.

  33. "Grittycakes"........ VACATION!!!! or actually, I'm trying to fall asleep from work last night. It's not going so well. Vacation officially starts Sunday morning at midnight, as Saturday is technically my day off. I'm not sure about the game tomorrow as my hobby-game table is a complete mess & I'm just not in the mood to clean it up right now. We shall see, I guess.

  34. If 10 is the strictest then my folks probably started off at an 11. I think they were worried my sister and I would repeat some of the mistakes they made in their youth (and a bunch they made as adults). But by the time I graduated high school they were likely somewhere around a 1. We were persistent in our misbehaving and it wore them down in the end. Also, it helped we both had jobs and paid for our own cars before leaving home. Kind of hard to be super strict in that situation.
