  1. Scylla Models KS pledge arrived today, everything appears good. Can’t find the thread though, may have been locked.
  2. I’d say octopus, but then you’d probably be stuck being the healer. Cuz when it comes to alter egos, they’re doctors you see...
  3. They’ve blown past the $1M mark already, possibly more expansions to unlock too.
  4. Trying to clean the dropper tip of gunked up crud and it spattered. Washed it out real good and feel fine, so my immortality is still intact. For now.
  5. It looks like a pocket flap, honestly. It appears the thread you linked treated it as such?
  6. The one I like is when they end with something to the effect of “if you choose to ignore this message, then good luck to you!” If you call back they try and get you to “pay your overdue IRS taxes” or whatever using iTunes gift cards
  7. Those two gnomes were made by Superior Models. Not sure about the others, but at least it’s a possible starting point.
  8. I’m in as well. It was a blast when we were 8, and they seem to have made several design improvements that should add playability for the now grown-ups. And yeah, it reached ridiculously Hero Quest-like prices on eBay. But, there really hasn’t ever been anything else quite like it.
  9. This all sounds like a brick-and-mortar version of Kickstarter. At least they didn’t start building up before quitting, like in some cities. Filling in a hole is much easier when there’s no need for demolitions first.
  10. ...holy dwarf. I have one. I forgot all about getting it. Thank you for the reminder! Now where it went off too is another question...
  11. At least 2”/50mm. Not sure if a square base would work, and 40mm is the largest slotted one in the store. I do have a flat 50mm though, gonna see what I can do with it.
  12. Base store does not carry slotted bases in large sizes, apparently. Neither does Reaper . Guess maybe it’s time to take y’all’s advice and debase a base with a Sharp Pointy Object. Hopefully I can jury-rig some support with green stuff.
  13. Nimbar still doesn’t have tags in the store, I for one hope the sculpt remains mysteriously androgynous. 900 pages! Thread is getting long in the tooth.
  14. No ability to drill something like that, unfortunately. If I wasn’t concerned about stability, I’d just remove the tab and glue it down by its feet. I may also need a bigger base than I currently have anyway.
  15. 1. Give ride to friend to the gym, decide to hang out at FLGS instead of going all the way home, “just to look”. 2. Find awesome mini that totally calls to you. That you can immediately imagine in all it’s painted glory, that you must make happen. 3. Purchase mini and squeal all the way home! 4. Notice said mini requires a slotted base, and unlike the others of its brand, does not come festooned with one. 5. Notice all your base are not slotted base just after the slotted base store closes. 6.
  16. Opened this one up and got it primed when I noticed a very significant case of mold-slippage. The details on her right side and left arm just didn’t line up, and I don’t have the skill to file/green stuff it away. So, rather than weep and save the mini for a melt table, she became practice! This ended up being a combination of speedpaint, demimetallic experimentation, and basing attempt, 3-4 hours total work including lots of futzing with paint mixes on my palette. The results: Oh, and I made her a Dark Elf to try more white hair. The purple metal is Royal Purple and Filigree Silver, mixed in varying degrees. Other metallics tended to un-purple the mix too much (except New Gold, but that’s a different look). I think she’s supposed to have gauntlets, but due to the casting issues these became cloth sleeves. In the end she turned out far better than expected, so I’m glad I didn’t give up. One less potential resident of the shelf of shame. Comments and critiques welcome, as always.
