  1. That really, really sucks. I hope you're okay and I hope you can find an adequate replacement for your vehicle without too much trouble. :( Y'know... I could actually use those. Whatever, I'm in for a buck. I can pick up the ice elementals in the campaign manager.
  2. Single Point Urban Interchange, huh? Who knew this would turn into Civil Engineering 101? Not me. Look at this thing, though... this is your single-point urban interchange schematic:
  3. I just subscribe to the Kickstarter forum. Every day I get an emailed list of things Samurai Jack has posted. And occasionally something that someone else has shared.
  4. You can kind of see the lanes marked on the image. I think it's a variant of a regular old diamond interchange. There's only one light instead of the two needed for a divergent diamond, the lanes don't seem to cross in the middle, and if you look at the on- and off-ramps they're crossing a bunch of lanes of traffic--just what a divergent diamond is supposed to prevent.
  5. I just looked up divergent diamond intersections and they seem pretty cool. Just have to drive on "the wrong side of the road" for a minute to make them work. Apparently we've got one constructed nearby that I've never seen and two that are under consideration. https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1MMZKi0RdQqjZjtBxmSTznUVnurY&ll=18.206649290462764%2C-80.24227424999992&z=2 Seems there's one under the Sam Rayburn Tollway as well, up by the Furniture Mart.
  6. Of course, the bigger issue with using her in 5e is that Kitsune don't exist in 5e... I'll need to sweet-talk my DM! Or maybe I should just give Pathfinder a try... You could always try hitting up a local Pathfinder Society game and see if you like the system! Keeps your investment a little lower that way.
  7. For quite a while, strength-based rogues were a quite usable build in Pathfinder. And there's always Slashing Grace... :) She might be called a rogue, and that's feasible, but she could also be a barbarian or fighter or swashbuckler or something. There's lots of ways to make it work. I wouldn't worry too much about it...
  8. Yeah, the cloud giant is an interesting one. I'm not sure if it's a rushed sculpt or a conscious style thing... I think it's pretty cool, but man, that is a huge amount of undifferentiated cloth to paint! We got ours a few days ago and I'm inventorying them now. That owl is strange. I was not expecting the tiny little mantis-limbs in its chest. (Edit: I should note, they were there in the original art! I just wasn't looking for them, so I didn't see them. I didn't realize just how much of an arthropod the "dire owl" actually was.) One of the strong suits of Stonehaven h
  9. Some folks buy the minis to use elsewhere and never play the game. I've developed a bit of a habit of filling in holes in my 28mm collection with board game sculpts. :) These look like tons of fun, but at 10mm, I wouldn't have anything to do with them and I certainly don't need yet another game to play. Folks who are more interested in new games or pieces for existing 10mm games would probably be more excited about this stuff than I am.
  10. I like the idea. I don't like that A., I don't have a ton of money to spend right now and B., it's at 10mm scale. Ah well.
  11. If that were the only case, it would just be, "Look at that really silly intersection. Who could have done that?" But not only is it not alone in its surrealism, it almost seems to be standard for DFW. Using Google maps, travel along any of the major multi-lane divided roads in Dallas-Ft. Worth and you'll see that sort of thing over and over again. A few years back we took a few-hours break and drove north to see a friend in Oklahoma and we were amazed at how consistently insane the civil engineering is. What sort of Lovecraftian traffic patterns make that a g
  12. It's okay. I'll work on getting someone else to sign off on it! I don't know about you. I always think of my leprechauns as wearing hats, and I don't remember you wearing too many hats there. You need to go all Doc Bedlam or something.
  13. This one might not be for me. At least, not yet. I guess we'll see.
  14. I... okay, you win. I threw in for a few dollars. Or pounds, I guess. :) Wish I could do more!
  15. I think she's my favorite Oathsworn mini, too. And is waaaay up there in my lists of favorite mini overall. She's just great.
  16. I'm probably stuck getting these at retail due to circumstances entirely beyond your control, but I am always looking for character miniatures in unusual races. So I would be all for it!
  17. I talked to him... I think it was Sunday afternoon... about it as we were all cleaning up. He also told me about the class sizes and how he wanted his class smaller and he wasn't happy with the larger size of the classes. He told me not that he wouldn't be visiting Reapercon but that he might not be officially teaching classes next Reapercon if the class sizes don't come down some. I saw him hanging out and painting with a few folks at his desk and it sounded like that reenergized him a little bit. Fingers crossed he makes it next year, in whatever capacity...
  18. Yup... I just got a survey, myself. It sounds like he's having some trouble parsing addresses for boxes he's already packed, and has decided that asking us all for our addresses again via Kickstarter is easier for him.
  19. Distinguishable, but just barely. Looks great to me! And it will look better once you get some color on there.
  20. A couple of years ago, the last auction at the hotel, went really well for FireElemental and I. We had about 2500 reaperbucks, just from the two of us taking classes, and we managed to get a couple of pre-signed boxed sets--Khanjira and Nethyrmaul. I was really excited that year! (We couldn't even travel with Khanjira. I gave it to a friend to paint, and I'm not sure he'll ever take it out of the box.) Last year, we saw significant price inflation. After the first half of the auction didn't go our way at all and we ended up being unable to afford anything we wanted, we threw in wit
  21. That's the one. If you go really sloppy, it works really well really fast on stuff like zombies, flesh golems, gibbering mouthers, and the like. Put a layer of dark purple down and then wet blend an off-white on top of it. You'll have to clean up a little afterwards of course. But Shaded Basecoat is all about using big brushes, so the initial color only takes a few seconds if you use a properly monstrous brush.
  22. I don't think any of my "tabletop" minis have been done that way! Maybe the first couple... I've taken too many wet blending classes.
