    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    There's lots of photos and impressions of the ship on the minis gallery forum: https://www.minisgallery.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=9&start=75

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    So YOU'RE the reason Reaper decided to give the frost giant raiders an armor reduction/breast enhancement! *Shakes head in disappointment*
  3. I just got back from End Game and would recommend watching Ant Man and the Wasp for background/context. I crammed watching that, Dr Strange, and the latest Thor earlier in the week (I'd been slacking on my Marvel upkeep) and was glad I did.

    Room for the Hobby

    I have a shared hobby room, so all my painting stuff has to fit on 1 wall of the room. To save space, I use: --Wall mounted paint racks (acrylic nail polish racks) --Wall mounted units of small storage drawers for all the bits and tools and stuff (the kind meant for hardware storage) --Scrapbook carts with lidded drawers/cases to hold finished and in-progress minis. These can hold a piece of 12x12 piece of sheet metal if you want to magnetize your minis, which is great for transport. --ikea desk that's just a flat tabletop sitting on top of 1 bookshelf and 1 drawer unit, to maximize storage. --I also intend to set up a permanent photo booth as suggested above. I'm currently trying to figure out if there's a good way to wall-mount that too.
  5. I actually picked up a Safari luck dragon for this purpose. It's a falcor-ish looking dragon that I'm planning on painting black-and-white like my long-bodied scruffy mutt. Safari makes a full-sized Luck Dragon, and a 3-inch baby luck dragon (it had puppies!), and teeny-tiny <1-inch dragons in their rubbery "good luck minis" line:

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Wizkids sells the board games in a regular edition and in a prepainted "premium" edition. I'd bet money that they're purposely skimping on the regular edition to push sales of the premium edition. (It worked on me. Premium edition is on its way.)

    Anyone had a t.i.a ?

    My sympathies, and thanks for posting! I haven't had a TIA, but I do have several friends who have. And I am myself recovering from a TBI (concussion) I sustained 6 months ago. I highly recommend seeing various rehab specialists, so you can get the best idea of where your impairments are and what the most efficient way of improving is. My concussion recovery has involved physical therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy, in addition to the regular doctors visits. Be patient with yourself, and let yourself grieve if necessary. I wish you all the best in your recovery!

    Favorite Bones Ultra-Color paints?

    Yep my 2 bottles of HD Umber Brown have been this way since day 1 (purchased at different times, but both during the HD clearance sale so probably from the same batch.) Has nothing to do with the bottle or with shaking. It just doesn't have the normal Reaper MSP/HD/Bones Ultra consistency. It's goopy, almost the consistency of Hershey's Syrup. And instead of being opaque it's more like a polyurethane stain in its coverage. I've still found plenty of uses for it, like staining crushed-walnut basing material. But it definitely doesn't work as a normal paint.

    Myth: Journeyman

    That photo of Nosferatu is the same photo megacon posted in a KS update years ago. On the upside, that would seem to suggest that they have some or all of the greens that were in progress back then.

    1" base Wormlings (Wyrmlings)

    If you mean baby dragons, you want the dragon hatchlings. There are 5 total, 1 for each chromatic type. 4 of them are available in both Bones plastic and metal. The white dragon hatchling is only available in metal. I based mine on 32mm bases to give them a smidge more room, but they should fit on 25mm bases with a bit of trimming or a bit of overhang. (Particularly the blue dragon has a wide stance, and the metal white/ice dragon is long.) https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Dragon hatchling williams

    Myth: Journeyman

    I think they'll get very different results if they run a kickstarter before delivering the missing stuff from the last kickstarter, vs. if they wait till after. I just don't think it's a good way to measure the game's potential, if they're going to rush to KS before they've taken concrete action to fix the game's terrible reputation and quiet the masses of people who are disappointed/pissed at Myth's non-delivery. That's just asking for continued bad word-of-mouth. Plus, AFAIK Ulisses hasn't ever run their own miniatures-heavy kickstarter, so I fully expect them to run into problems and delays if this ends up being their first one. Unfortunately they don't have access to Megacons kickstarter account (yet?) So they can't post an update there.

    Favorite Bones Ultra-Color paints?

    Cool, thanks for the tip. The effect looks great! I've got a ton of furniture terrain to paint, so I'll have to give that a try. Glazing definitely seems like a good role for my bottles of umber brown. They're not opaque at all.
  13. Oh wow these are so cute! I'm bummed I missed this KS. Does anyone know of they'll be selling extras after fulfilment, or where I might find a set of these? Also, does anyone have the old (iron wind?) hares for a scale comparison photo? I have those and would love to know they'd scale well together. Edit: found them on Facebook and was able to message them to get answers to all my questions, nice!

    44002 Rock Troll somewhat modified...somewhat.

    Before I read your comments, I saw the pics and thought, "Neat, he reminds me of Mollog!" I really love what you've done with this guy!
  15. Thanks so much for providing your insights, Anne!! This is exactly the kind of info I love to have. I've been eying several of the colors you mentioned, so they'll be going into my cart for sure. (Lantern yellow looks like its gonna be sooo goooood!) And, you really have outdone yourself with the Bones line! Some of the colors are just soooo unique and smooth and just...*Italian chef kissy fingers*
