Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless (2/8)



  1. Inventory complete! No extras, nothing missing. One or two minis with noticeable gaps where it wasn't glued together quite right - I can probably fix those. Tons of bent minis, but that doesn't bother me - boil-and-bend is easy. I only got one figure case, and I was a little worried about everything fitting in there. However, it turns out there's not as many standard human-sized minis in the Vampire box as I'd thought. Quite a few of the non-humans (and even some of the humans) are just waaaaaay to big to fit into the slots in the case, and I don't feel like cutting bigger holes at this point. One trick I used was taking the little boxes my paint came in and using them to hold groups of related minis. I ended up organizing my minis thusly: Small box of undead - skeletons, zombies, mummies, and that one vampire Small box of familiars and dungeon dressing Small box of vermin - rats, spiders, generic goblins (NOT the "We Be Goblins"), kobolds, Small box of various small to medium monsters (bat swarm, eye beast, demons, etc.) Big box with giants, orcs, and other large monsters as well as the green Haunts and Fire It Up (some things separated into ziploc bags within this box) Figure case holds all the normal-sized humans, elves, dwarves, halflings, gnomes, and "We Be Goblins". It just happened to make sense that the stuff that naturally fits in the figure case is also mostly the minis I would consider valid for player characters in the games I play/run. I did make sure the Townsfolk were grouped together in the case, as well as the shorter-than-humans, the We Be Goblins, and the more "big bad guy" humans, so that they'd be separate from the minis most of my players are going to want to look through when we paint minis for my new campaign next week.
  2. So, now that mine's shipped, I'm frantically watching the UPS tracking info instead of Reaper's tracker, but it's the same insane waiting game. It shipped on Tuesday, with an estimated arrival of Friday, but there's been no new data since "Departed - Mesquite, TX, United States, Wednesday, 06/26/2013" at about 1 A.M. yesterday. I wanna know if it's gonna get here tomorrow or Saturday or what! <pout>.
  3. Got my Reaper confirmation email, waiting for the tracking to be available so I can see the estimated delivery date. Anyone know how long after getting your email from Reaper one can expect to see tracking info?
  4. Just got my shipping email. 8 items confirmed for Irvine, California: Hi there! We're shipping out your Kickstarter stuff! You're getting: Deep Dwellers x1 Frost Giants x1 Kaladrax Reborn x1 Starter Set 2 x1 Figure Case x1 Clockwork Dragon x1 Starter Paint Set x1 vampire x1 Your shipment was postmarked on 06-25-2013 and is being shipped UPS Ground.
  5. Wondering now how many 7-items there are to ship. They finished out the 6's yesterday and got to a few 7's..... maybe if we're lucky, all the 7's today, and 8's will start? I'm an 8 and I'm starting to get twitchy.
  6. It's about 1 A.M. in Texas, and the counter says "2 orders shipped today, Laramie, WY". I wonder who couldn't sleep and decided to go pack a few bones?
  7. Two of the same item counts as 2 items. This has been confirmed by Bryan. So, if you ordered 2 Vampire boxes, 4 Figure Cases, and 2 Kaladrax (and nothing else), you're an 8-item order.
  8. Vamp+7 for me, putting me just under the quoted average order of 8-point-something. Guess I'll start getting really excited when they drop under 10k remaining orders. Getting mine by Saturday would be amazing, but Tuesday would be the next best thing.
  9. Oh god, how did I miss that.... I just realized, despite knowing what Driders are for years, that the name comes from two very obvious compontents: Drow and Spiders. Drow. Spiders. DrowSpiders. Driders. *FACEPALM*
  10. I, too, use squares for man-made structures+towns (men build at right-angles, usually), and hexes for outdoors, natural caves, and curved structures like the circular dwarven fortress I ran my players through once. Totally stealing this idea for my next campaign - it would help explain why the settled urban population in my setting tends to use different magics from the tribal and nomadic peoples. Cities tend to have a lot of wizards and clerics, while the tribes and nomads have a lot more shamans and spirit guides.
  11. Hi folks, I recently picked up Erin of the Flame and I was considering painting the two balls of fire he holds in contrasting colors - one traditional red/yellow/orange fire and one as blue fire. What colors and techniques will make blue fire look good? Hell, even tips on making regular fire look awesome would be helpful - I'm a bit of a noob still. Thanks!
  12. You can also use this website - http://greg.botch.com/bones/table.html - to compare the model numbers of the KS Bones to other Reaper products. This is especially useful if you're looking at any metal minis, because many of the KS Bones are re-dos of metal ones.
  13. Looks pretty darn similar to my own LTPK#1 Rat.
