  1. Wife is on schedule to come home tomorrow. She’s doing much better today than yesterday. The occasional nose bleed, but hell, she had a chunk of skull removed. Meanwhile, lost an apple tree and a huge leafy tree, plus several large branches in another. Got a chainsaw from HD and could NOT get it started even with help from YouTube! So got Ryobi’s 40v electric one. Hope it can do the trick. But damn, ya’ll. Stress monster is eating me alive this week. Work, bees, pets, surgery, trees! And it didn’t help that I dehydrated myself yesterday. Got really dizzy to the point that I felt drunk lying down. I am behaving better today, drinking lots of water and even had a salad at the hospital.

  5. I've met a British naval folk singer named Tom Lewis that served on a shallow bottom boat for Her Majesty - the ships dog (Technically Electrician's Dog First Class) was taken to Mast for an incident involving a French Afghan hound that made it into the French papers. Bunts (the dog) was broken to Electrician's Dog Second Class. So, Mr. Lewis wrote a song about it. (Bunts! is the title - I'd link, but his page is a commercial site.) The Auld Grump

  6. From @Guindyloo box. I made comments about wanting another bonesack, so glad he was there. Grabbed a handful of Sci fi and chibis. What are these aliens and where can I obtain more? I realized the scale 75 lady I took is not in the picture. She fell off the table.

  7. If you're cutting up and disposing of most of the Denver metro area, you'd better drink some more water, you're gonna be busy for a while.

  8. You need to watch your electrolytes when you get dehydrated. A sports drink or two will help in these situations, which is what they are designed for, both to prevent dehydration and the possible side effects of your electrolytes going out of balance. It's good to hear your wife is doing well and will be coming home sooner rather than later. GEM

  10. @oldschoolfan--thanks. I'm glad you liked the pics. Yes, Reaper will PROBABLY add more stuff to the pledge manager; they have in the past. It's not guaranteed though. MOD VOICE: A quick reminder though: i get that you might find people expressing thier negative feelings annoying, but they ARE allowed to express them here. To everyone else: just as you are allowed to complain all you want, oldschoolfan is also allowed to express his/her opinions. If you're offended and feeling like picking a fight: DON'T.

  11. Wife is home and resting comfortably. I'm not because I've got tree branches to cut up and dispose of, along with most of the Denver metro area.

  12. I feel like there were some surprises, like the beefolk and honeythorn lancer, the scarabfolk, and the werehippo. Both the ants and the mongrelfolk felt surprising at the time, as did the giant crayfish, though in retrospect these are fairly conventional monsters that are not often produced as miniatures. What was missing was not surprises but BIG surprises. In general, Reaper went smaller this time around, which I suspect has a lot to do with production capabilities and issues.

  13. Friday I received a small order I'd placed earlier in the week when I opened my last bottle of cement. Figured I'd try the regular Extra Thin as I find the fast drying is often drying too fast when I'm doing something big, like attaching the two halves of a tank hull...... And to get up to free shipping, I grabbed an assortment of Gamers Grass. I need to get to basing my Germans. Then in the afternoon I popped in to the FLGS since part of the latest shipment from Warlord Games was in. The Pioniers I'd ordered. An interesting kit with a lot of different options. I hadn't looked at them originally as they are marked as Early to Mid war, and I was focusing mainly on Late war. But they are also available in Konflikt '47.... even though it takes place AFTER Late war........ The Flack 37 I picked up just because it had been sitting there taunting me for a couple of weeks. And the Eddies were just because.

  14. I'd bring my Vixens, oldest one will stare down any opponent while youngest one will smile at the guards and is able to walk away with loot, guards will just laugh and wave goodbye. As for the target that will be a secret. We walked past a Mall so the vixens got distracted also somehow my wallet was empty after that moment...strange huh...

  15. Dragons always get attention, and any that are well done are likely to sell well. Just a matter of waiting to see what they do with them. It is curious they thought other things were more important, but I'm sure they have their reasons. Thanks to helpful people who take the time, most of the cool Twitch reveals make it to this thread. Honestly, that shouldn't be necessary. Those things should go into newsletters and posts from Reaper so everyone can see them.

  16. I've enjoyed reading people's opinions here, both positive and negative, throughout the Kickstarter. I'm not influenced by what other people think or say, but I do like to read opinions, because sometimes they help me understand why I think the way I do. I don't look at social media, so half the time I don't know what people are talking about, but I'm fine with that. I know people here, and am familiar with their points of view, so I can read what they say and see where they are coming from. Since it's over now, I can express myself without being perceived to be trying to bring down the enthusiasm, in case anyone finds my opinion useful to think about. I doubt I have anything new to add, but I'm feeling chatty. Looking over the whole project, it looks good, but very repetitive of past Bones kickstarters, so there was disappointingly little to attract me. It seems like a project for new backers. Also, there were no cool left-field surprises here, like a froghemoth or Baba Yaga's hut or some wild Lovecraft monster like Cthulhu from the first Bones. That was a mind-blower of a reveal. I would have loved to throw money at it, and was surprised that for the first time I didn't even get in on the pledge manager. I wasn't a fan of all the post-Kickstarter "Power-ups" in the pledge manager last time. I just found it confusing. I want to submit my pledge and forget about it, not keep looking at the pledge manager to see if there is anything else that's been added. Ironically, Reaper is probably the only company that I would trust with any Kickstarter money right now, but all the social media stuff and the twitch (?) streams and all the digital sculpts (I just can't visualize them in my head) just don't do it for me. I'm not trying to dampen the enthusiasm of others. Just my point of view!

  17. indeed. We can have CIVIL disagreements without calling out insults or being nasty about it and YES i'm still bringing it up, and i will continue to do so 🙂 I'm frustrated, annoyed, disappointed, and weary. This is my ONLY place to voice about it, especially when new pictures are shown of stuff we could have had instead of something we have dozens and dozens of already. So yup! be prepared for me to continue talking about it whenever we see something really cool that would have added something NEW to the line instead of more 'just more of X monster in similar poses to the numerous other minis of that monster we already have' i do like that dragon diorama, and i'd love another draogn bust. And the chibi pathfinder dragon. Let's see if Reaper will do somethign with them now that the KS is over, i'd put in more money for those

  20. It's been over for how long now and you're all STILL whining about it? Good lord, go paint something already. I'm HAPPY it turned out the way it did, there's a lot of good stuff that I'm looking forward to getting in a couple years, including a lot of stuff that NOT everyone has. For some of us this Kickstarter was brilliant, exciting, and wonderful. I'm still thrilled with how it worked out. Could it have been better? Yes, maybe. I'm still convinced that the negativity all over social media around the campaign actually hurt it. From what people in this thread are saying, Reaper may be giving us some extra stuff to chose from when the pledge manager opens, so there's a good chance that you'll be getting those dragons anyway, right? A big thank you to Reaper for doing this Kickstarter, @Chaoswolf for all the great pictures from the count down party, and for all of those who tried to keep this thread informative, helpful, and positive.

  21. I've definitely done that with super glue and accelerator. Mine was a different brand though. I also had to undo what I'd done because I read assembly instructions wrong (put a ocuple of the 4 arms in the wrong spots) so now the joints on that mini are all scratched up. Was not a pleasant experience, do not recommend.

  24. Well, it's cloudy and grey this morning, and it looks like it'll stay that way all day. It's nice though; the temperature has cooled off to (currently) 60 degrees (f). That's a nice change from almost 2 weeks of 95+.

  25. Most modern "sports drinks" are high in sugar and contain very few, if any electrolytes. You're better off with plain water. If you can handle it coconut water has sodium, potassium, calcium, and magnesium, among others. Not everyone finds the taste appealing, though.

  30. @Pegazus: Good to hear your wife is doing well and will be coming home tomorrow. Make sure you're taking care of yourself, though. Heat related injuries are absolutely no fun, and can get real dangerous real quick. Drink more water!

  31. Been collecting recipes for awhile now and happy to finally get to try some. I need to wait another month until I get a beef butchered before I can go real wild with it. It was a snap decision to buy so don't have much on hand to try. Today was a mild disappointment with a bit of learning. Sausage was good but not really any better than fast cooking on the BBQ. Potatoes were good but undercooked a little because I should have upped the temp and supper was running way late. Asparagus can be done quicker and tastier in a frying pan on the stove. Tomorrow will be a chunk of pork belly and roast beef. Jerky is high on my list but I'm low on beef and not quite ready to poach a deer for it. Will be doing a bunch of smoked sausage over the summer.

  33. Crew may/may not include a certain goblin that likes to crawl around Reaper's duct work (certainly not @buglips*the*goblin). I'm sure there are no longer used (forbidden) molds that could possibly be acquired (not that I would be looking for a certain Sophie).

  34. I’ve been away on business all week. I’m trying to keep purchases down to a reasonable level, so there hasn’t been too much new lately. I got in one vintage Schneider mold making two ~45mm Prussians guardsmen (~1871-1914) to start making semi-flat figures for my next project, 19th century games. Searching the Forum for “home cast” suggests that I’m about the only one here interested in controlling the means of production, comrades?

  36. Extra thin from Tamiya works just like the quick set but of course without the quick dry feature. I think you'll like it. If anything there is regular liquid cement from Tamiya. I think they may have changed that one to the square bottle as well. The one I have (which sets on a shelf now & it a thick goo) is the old hex bottle kind. Order placed this morning to take advantage of their sale, Knights of Noble order for Army Painter color primers + a mini: Chaotic Red Matte Black Bone Neroli (DHL #2946)

  42. Inspiring, great work. That shield is chaotic evil; Speech, telepathy, 10 ranks in Intimidate, hold person on an enemy 3/day, cure moderate wounds (2d8+3) on wielder 3/day, cause fear in an enemy at will. 120 ft. darkvision, blindsense, and hearing. Rare item, forged by the Duergar of Gracklstugh. Market value 39 700 gp. 😉

  43. It's official. We have a TRENCH!! It goes from the house to the new well head! We can run pipes! And power! And it will be awesome! Or at least, it will work. ... I am never gonna cease to be amazed by the things found while digging on this property; the count from this round includes a hubcap, a mess of random old pipe, the pipes we expected to find, and the old drain field from the original septic tank (or, at least, what we think is the old drain field; that's what the trench guy said). Also, crap ton of root invasion, a lot of head-sized rocks and a lot of sandy dirt. .. the cherry laurel on that side of the house took a beating, but I don't think it's going to let that stop it.

  45. That doesn't mean we can't sit here and lament what could have been. Instead of that second chibi pack we could have had a dragon. Instead of the 20th set of orcs or bugbears in the reaper line,we could have had our second dragon bust For some of us this Kickstarter was extremely lackluster, disappointing, and uninteresting. So it makes it sad when we see examples of things we ACTUALLY want that didn't get in

  46. Just a quick dirty wash job on the Deep Cuts rat swarm... because doing every single tiny tail and tiny eyes and tiny nose would likely drive me postal. A second "slender stalker" from SCS Direct's bucket of aliens. Unlike the last one with its bright simple colors, this one gets a darker deco that was attempting to look like a spotted python's at my girlfriend's suggestion (because she thought his build felt serpentine). Key word attempted. She was confused at the off-white tentacle-hair... I was trying to make it look like floating wisps of fog. And lastly, the piece I'm happiest with out of this batch... a gargoyle from Dimensions For Children's fantasy playsets of the 80s, painted up as a very traditional-looking devil.

  49. Dunno, never thought to check before. I was naviagting around in this one and accidently clicked the 'all the way back to page 1 arrow' instead of the 'prev' right next to it. While I was on page 1 I happened to notice the date. It confused me at first since it was approximately correct, then I noticed the year.
