  1. Is my ad blocker screwing the links up? The photos are kinda small given how huge the mini is..
  2. Nope - the Kuo Toa remain the IP of WotC. It is for the best. All those special abilities inflated their CR / XP value.
  3. Oh, well if you want extraneous special abilities bloating XP values... http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/bestiary3/ceratioidi.html#_ceratioidi CERATIOIDI CR 3 XP 800 This flabby, fishlike humanoid has the wide mouth, bulging eyes, and dangling, luminescent flesh lure of a deep-sea predator.
  4. Ether one should work http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/monsters/sahuagin.html#_sahuagin http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/monsters/skum.html#_skum
  5. Also, there are some international sellers that sell 25mm and 30mm buttons pretty cheap. Generally as thick as a GW base. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_sacat=0&_from=R40&_nkw=30mm+button&_sop=15
  6. Same here. Best prices I've seen mentioned around here seem to be: 1" round : http://www.learningresources.com/product/two-color+counting+chips.do?sortby=ourPicks&sortby=&&refType=1 400 for $10 if you split them with a sharp knife 1.5 & 40mm round : Poker Chips. Cheap ridged are usually 1.5", Semi-pricey 'clay' are generally 40mm. 75MM : Lid from a can of food, cut by a fancy side cutting can opener. The Chinese sellers of the look alike GW bases are not that bad either 100 for $13 US, Free worldwide shipping. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Warhammer-Fantasy-25mm-Round-Close-Base-x-100-PCS-Version-3-0-/221261245305?pt=Games_US&hash=item338432ab79
  7. Yeah, Napalm Cats sound even less reliable than the anti tank dog. And no, that was not my first thought... this was http://www.garfield.com/comics/vault.html?yr=1979&addr=790121
  8. Good, they wised up and sweetened the deal. However that they are still using those painfully low resolution shots of their old minis is a headscratcher to me. Does no one there at RAFM have a camera?
  9. Uhm, that really odd. Acrylic paint should have dried completely. I've seen enamles stay tacky for a long time over plastic, but never acrylics.
  10. It looks neat at first. but then it starts looking like it should be breaking off on the first swing.
  11. Thanks for putting unpainted miniatures back into my price range!
  12. No Early Bird, a Mediocre value if the campaign does not pick up steam and no retailer support. Not grabbing me yet... EDIT: And it looks like TOO good of a deal if it DOES go big.
  13. I'm interested, but very cautious. First off, any mini company can make Lovecraft's creatures, so the only Exclusively RAFM CoC figs will be from later authors like Campbell {Y'Golonac] and Lumley {Chthonians] along with inventions and interpretations of the Mythos by Chaosium's authors. Heck even Reaper stepped on RAFM's toes a little by shoving Lovecraft critters onto the market of recent. And really concerned on how RAFM will be able get the bigger beasts out there since a few of them should be model kit sized. Metal is prohibitively expensive nowadays and even toxic resin isn't cheap. Are we going to wind up with another Battletech scaled D'hole worm?
  14. EB specials work. They have kept me camped out on KS pages waiting for someone to drop out.
  15. "And after this, the DM banned druids from his campaign..."
  16. In Wotc D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder, yes. 3.0 a colossal dragon's base would be 8" x 16". In 2E base size was not specified, but the biggest dragons were 300' long in game.
  17. I remember when folks expressed similar notions about Wotc's 2001 Chainmail line. That said, I doubt Reaper will abandon metal, even when the time comes when they financially should, chugging along at slimmer margins just to ensure there is a metal minis market.{are we at that point yet?] They will probably even still be making Bones when those are made obsolete.
  18. I'd break out the Acetone and assume whatever stays is probably held in by lead rot. Unless the faces are mushed, repaint or ebay them.
  19. It is a problem, and a big one, with the Kickstarter when that happens. "Inspired by" is one thing, making an obvious copy is another thing entirely. Both of those Wotc was fully in the right. Demons and Devils's Ice devil did look lifted from 1E MM art. Tentacle and eyeballs... sheesh. that one well deserved it's C&D and then some.
  20. Cool. More of a WIP topic. I commend your patience. Thanks for the views of C'thulhu from various angles. Is that a great big wound on Its flank?
  21. Thing is, there is a question for each sculpt, will the metal versions sell enough to justify the molding costs? From what I think i heard, it take a couple hundred dollars to make the production molds. Reaper has claimed profits being less far less than a dollar per metal figure years ago in a discussion on the 9/11 'Not Gandalf' mini. So there'd have to be a good deal of demand for a more costly version of an already existent bones figure to not have made the metal figure at a LOSS.
  22. Really want to back this, but several names / minis / concept arts come close enough to the TSR art to make me worry about wotc sending.a C&D letter. Since the discount isn't that deep compared to the retail until one is majorly invested, I'll feel safer waiting.
  23. She is definitely wearing a mask. Ice Giant King and Queen sounds better together than Ice Giant King and Priestess. Actually it was "Frost Giant Princess". Only thing that got changed was her title went up one step. As to how she upgraded her title with the same frost giant king on the throne...
  24. Uhm, getting too much of a Sucker Punch feeling off of this one.
  25. He's having the casting done by fortress figures? Haven't seen much from them this decade.
