  1. Awesome, thanks very much. My mistake was searching on "sister," "battle," and "nun." :D Your imaginary prize is in the mail! -Kep
  2. Need an ID on this Reaper figure. Hopefully this is the right category for this sort of thing. I searched the Reaper site, as well as the older catalogs I had, and even eBay. Solid base (hidden under texture) which had the Reaper stamp on the bottom backside. The one who brings me the name shall gain an entirely imaginary prize of the highest calibre! Excuse the messiness; it's obviously a work-in-progress with a good way to go. :) Thanks, -Kep
  3. Thanks for the kind words everyone. :) Kep
  4. Been swinging back into a Reaper mode lately, as well as a NMM mode. Seems like I alternate between metallics and NMM, and each time I bounce back to the other, I improve my technique by teeny, weeny, tiny bit. Anyway, first there's Eredain, Wizard whom I painted up like a Red Wizard of Thay (from D&D: Forgotten Realms). CMON votin' goodness can be done right here. Then there's Toshiro, Male Ronin, whom I went a little crazy on. I'm very happy with the red and the NMM. I also was originally planning to have Enma Ai from Jigoku Shoujo as the girl staring into the raging sea, but those sorts of details at this scale would be silly (she's just under 5mm head to toe). Voting happiness for Tanshiro can can be found here. Thanks! :D Kep
  5. Manufacturing in China doesn't indicate the relative size of the company; it just means it was cheaper to produce and import a particular product from China than it was to do in the US. Dwarven Forge is, no matter how you slice it, an elite product within a niche market. You generally don't move large numbers of units in that tiny of a market, but instead rely on a core of repeat customers. It makes perfect sense that they'd choose to maximize profit of existing sales over increasing sales (which would require faster production, something they appear to be rather slow at). Of course, this is all armchair guesswork, really, since none of us know DF sales/profit numbers... but this is what I'd guess their rationale is. :) On topic, yeah, I'm seriously rethinking my decision to attend GD Chicago this year just so I can afford a couple of these new sets. :P Kep
  6. Well... since the topic has been brought up... :) Any idea when Hellakin, Halfling Rogue will be released in the US? Kep
  7. Oh! Holy cow! I thought you were talking about a new campaign or Live Greyhawk scenario! War of the Dragon Queen is a new D&D minis expansion! I just found out. :D Yes, I will be on that like "white on rice" as they say. <g> Kep
  8. Thanks again. :) Nope, not Dragon Queen. We have a long running customized campaign set in Faerun that's fairly intricate and character-driven, so we probably won't adapt any new events or campaigns. We have way too many options as it is. :D Kep
  9. I'm planning to put one on a 3" base (huge size in D&D terms) so it should be about an extra inch to work with... How far apart are the legs unconverted? Kep
  10. Awesome, precisely what I needed to know. Thankya. :) Kep
  11. How tall is the Colossal Skeletal Warrior #2911? And how tall is the Skeletal Giant #2742? Looking for something that is the same size as one of the D&D Formorian giant minis (huge size) as my Dread Necromancer was part of a group that put down two recently. Thanks, Kep
  12. Semi-related tip: if you get superglue on your fingers, dip them into water. This will set the superglue immediately, before capillary action spreads it throughout your fingerprints and it soaks too far into your skin. Then you can take fine sandpaper and gently sand it off so you don't get that annoying "dry finger" feeling. Doesn't hurt at all, and a lot easier to remove. I have a couple hundred of those M.U.S.C.L.E things up in the attic. Are they actually worth anything? Would have thought they'd be too soft and flexible to paint. Kep
  13. Hee. I liked the double row of teeth he had to begin with, actually. <g> The exaggeration of a shark's maw on a slug was awesome. Kep
  14. Well, odd... thought I PMed this, but it's not showing up on my "sent messages" box. Anyway, when you get these cast in pewter, let me know, too, please. :) Kep
  15. I have a bag full of cheap sanding sticks called Sanding Twigs by DuraSand. They're surprisingly fine for the price and flexible enough to wrap around legs, arms, torsos, etc. The pink ones are especially fine. They're basically thin strips of sandpaper on a foam/cardboard stick. Package claims they're washable, but considering you get 20 a pack for $1 at Hobby Lobby or Michael's, I imagine it's kinda pointless to bother. <g> Kep
