    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    I always wondered why they needed separate astromech droids to just sit there for no apparent reason.

    Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon

    Sadly, had to cancel my plans. I'd booked 2 seats, with the plan to get my wife's ticket with a free ticket coupon, and the theatre filled up before we got there. We'll have to reschedule, unfortunately.

    OMG, seeing George Wendt running for his life in some scene would've been hilarious. Dark Phoenix was way better than most reviews made it out to be, but I also really enjoyed Apocalypse, so I think I may be in a very odd minority. Going to see Toy Story 4 tonight with the family. Really looking forward to it.

    Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

    Bones 4 had 3 different gorilla/great ape miniatures. They're about "large" sized, so I'm not sure how that compares to 5.0. If it's Huge or larger, you I can definitely see a need for a Kong-style monstrous ape. I really want a wide variety of non-barbarian minotaurs. Male and female, minotaur spellcasters, monks, non-evil armored figures, etc. Considering they're becoming a more common playable race, it'd be nice not to have to use HeroForge to get minotaur miniatures.
  5. I based mine on a 3" round base.

    So What Have you Read Lately? And other favorite books!

    I've been picking up his Nevernight series, but I haven't cracked them open yet. I'm waiting until I get the full trilogy before going crazy with it.

    So What Have you Read Lately? And other favorite books!

    I'd like to recommend the Jay Kristoff's Lotus War Trilogy series, starting with Stormdancer, then Kin Slayer, and finally Endsinger. They're a trilogy of fantasy steampunk dystopian novels set in an alternate universe feudal Japan. There's a lot of really interesting worldbuilding and some pretty awesome characters, and I have forced both my wife and my mom to read them already.

    Spellcrow Minotaur Conversion to Minotaur Monk :: Thrym's Table

    I wish we had a wider range of "civilized" minotaur miniatures, as I have minotaurs with a strong monastic tradition and there just aren't any adequate miniatures in most cases. I have been building figures on HeroForge, and have paid for one of the female minotaurs I built, but they're pricey. Definitely like the conversion work and paint job you've pulled off here.

    What an excellent quote.

    02029 Princess Elena

    I really like the look of that blue. It looks like velvet or something, soft, but with some texture and sheen. Very nice colours and highlighting on that.

    monster gaming monster adventure terrain

    I actually really dislike Dwarven Forge's penchant for putting walls in the middle of a 1" square, making the entire square effectively useless for the purposes of gaming. It seems to be a common issue throughout most dungeon tile sets, and one I'm not terribly interested in using. Walls being a separate piece on their own would be much more useful in my opinion. There was a mines kickstarter that Reaper helped with several years ago that I thought had the right idea with their walls occupying their own 1" wide pieces, making them work with the gaming grid, rather than against it. Sadly, I didn't have enough money to back for those then - I just got the paints that Reaper was throwing in at a steal. That's part of what I like about this set overall, but to each their own.

    New Pathfinder Iconics?

    Just got a good look at some of the new Iconics. Not that much of a fan of Amiri, and Seoni's alright, but she has nowhere near the character and personality her original illustration felt like it had. But I'm going full grognard and refusing to update from PF 1st edition anyway, so what do I care?

    Don't ask me anything. Tell me something.

    I remember stumbling upon a fan theory that Obi-Wan tipped off the Storm Troopers about Uncle Owen and Beru, because he wanted to make sure that Luke had motivation to go with him and defeat Vader. I'm sure there's little to no actual supporting evidence, but it does strike me as an interesting idea...
