    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Just got the adventurer's campsite, human ranger & moon elf sorcerer (Minsc & Delina), and the little Pathfinder silver dragon (along with other gaming goodies). The campsite is such a great looking set and the dragon looks really detailed. Thanks to everyone who recommended those. Love em.

    Bones 4 tidal lurker

    Nicely done! So right, this is definitely a not-chuul. Makes the figure easy to throw in a game. I really like water monsters that can come on land and cause havoc.

    I still have the first ten or so AD&D DC comics. Haven't read them in over 20 years though. Very nice catch on the cleric. The sculpt even has her book.

    The sorceress is named Delina (link). She's a moon elf who uses wild magic. An unpredictable spell effect accidentally revives Minsc, at least that's how it happens in the Baldur's Gate comics. Her sculpt is based on the art from the comic book. The stories are a little silly, but I keep buying them. Fun read. I'm not sure why I haven't picked up their mini pack yet. I need to get on that.

    I can see that, but game wise some giants are supposed to be really big. Below is a pathfinder giant size chart I found online. They get really tall. In DnD 5e giants get even bigger. Hill giants are listed as 16' tall (more than 2½ times human height) and they go all the way up to the 26' storm giant. This is right out of the Monster Manual. Beefy bunch. Most recent Bones are very close the same size. If anything, I'd like the Reaper frost giants on up to be larger. Maybe not as tall as the tallest WizKids giants, but some Reaper fire giants are shorter than some of their stone giants. (group pic I found on Facebook below) In the end, I use whatever giants I have, even if some of them are shrimpy by Monster Manual standards.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I got mine in a week or so back. I probably won't get around to painting them for a while but they sure look nice.

    Best Cleric Minis?

    I'm partial to 2475 Christina the Devout. You can make some nice OSL effects with her lantern. There's a second version of her as well 3805 Chrisitna. I don't have that one (yet), but it looks like she has a shield on her back. Both are great examples of female warriors without the usual boob armor. You could even have one for lower levels and the other for higher levels. 7023 Ailene is another great mace wielding cleric. This one is holding a shield instead of a lantern. Love how her outfit mixes priestess robes with plate armor so nicely. No mistaking this one for a fighter. If you're looking for a male I kinda like 2398 Denefin. Guy is pretty fierce looking. All kinds of aggro going on. There's also a couple nice dwarf clerics with maces if you need them. If you want links for them let me know. I just posted my top favorites.

    size comparison of old giants and new giants?

    Wish I had a bigger image to share, but these are the huge fire giants with one original fire giant on the far right for scale.

    June Bones Black Promo Mini: Garghuk the Ogre!

    He really is. I'm guessing a kobold put a toad in his Chex mix.

    I finally broke down and ordered the Adventurer's Campsite set. Ezmerelda’s wagon is too lovely to miss out on. Hope I manage to paint it as nicely as it deserves.
  11. I'm sure others have already suggested it, but I'd love a few more non-human town guards and bandits, especially if there were male and female versions for some of them. Reaper already has a few, but it would be nice to have a few of the missing ones. Would be amazing if the guards had somewhat similar armor, regardless of race, kind of like the Anhurians. That isn't essential though. I'm not suggesting we need all of them, but a couple here and there would be wonderful. Seems like most of the recent guards and bandit minis are human. Examples: • Catfolk guards & bandits (male and female) • Dragonman guards & bandits (male and female) • Hellborn (Tiefling) guards & bandits (male and female) • Halfling guards (Reaper already has Bones Halfling rogues that make fine bandits) • Half-orc town guards & female bandit (Reaper already has a Bones male Half-orc rogue that makes a good bandit) • Dwarf female guard (Reaper already has a nice metal male guard for a good price & some Dwarf rogues that make nice bandits)

    Grenadier Great Griffon

    Sorry to necro this thread but holy caonoli! Not sure I've ever seen a mini painted like this. This thing is beautiful.

    Amazonians by Tomb Guardians Miniatures

    Nice catch! The flame figure even has a belly button. I didn't know magical tiny flame ladies had belly buttons. Maybe she's summoning a sprite or something. Humm, she would make a pretty sweet summoner figure. Adding tiny horns & wings to the spell effect might be simple enough to make it an imp... for an evil summoner.

    [SPLIT] Vortex Shakers

    I got a variable speed Vortex Genie 2 a couple years ago with the cup. It shakes up dropper bottle paints beautifully, but larger bottles not so much. I ended up ordering a 3" platform with rubber cover a few months back for the paints that don't fit in the cup. The platform works great for Minitaire paints, P3, Citadel, etc... and it's okay at shaking craft paints. It struggles a little with them if the craft bottles are full and the paint is thick. I sometimes get better results by shaking the craft paints by hand until about a fifth of the paint is used up. Then the mixer with the platform can really get those going. It seems like the cup shakes dropper bottles a little better than the platform, but the platform definitely mixes bottles the cup simply can't. I never thought of trying silly putty in the cup though. Sounds like it might do the trick. I usually leave the platform on the mixer, but switch to the cup when I want to mix a lot of dropper bottles. Even though the mixer is variable speed, I always leave it on full speed.
