  1. Oh, man, thanks for pointing that out! Now I really want to convert a figure to have one of those caps tied on his head. Maybe an eccentric wizard...or a woodsman who’s spent too many years in the dark forest... Hmmm...
  2. Thank you all for the Birthday wishes!
  3. Yes, as the others have said, feel free to take more than you put in if there's space issues. As far, as unpackaging stuff, try not to unpackage anything that looks vintage as most collectors like stuff in its original package; and when removing a figure from it’s blister, please tear off the figure’s name and manufacturer’s identification and put that in a baggie with the figure so folks will know what the figure is down the line.
  4. It is an entertaining and fascinating show to watch. While we really disagreed with the choice of winner of Season 1, we found the contestants, and results, on Season 2 to be much more enjoyable. Another Netflix show in the competition vein we really enjoyed was "We Are the Champions" It takes looks at different lesser-known competitions across the world, like cheese rolling and dog dancing for example, and really does a good job of exploring the people involved and their reasons for competing.
  5. Thanks, Glitterwolf! Thanks, Darcstaar! Thank you, Iridil! I was a little worried the carapace was too dull. I tried to copy the frog colors from nature:
  6. Show Off thread with the final painted figure has been posted: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/94644-giant-rhino-beetle-with-mudcroak-squog-rider/
  7. Back in November I posted over on the Conversion WIP sub-forum about a mounted figure I was making using the Bones 4 Giant Rhinoceros Beetle and the Mudcroak Squog figure: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93699-frog-riding-beetle-conversion/ This past week I finally got around to painting the converted figure, and I wanted to share the results. .
  8. I saw this Kickstarter today and thought it might interest some of you. It is for vehicles, figures, and terrain, for a Steampunk floating city. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/aetherstudios/sky-islands-3d-printable-terrain?ref=thanks-share&fbclid=IwAR1GrgHMekBhND-c5qV6Ya_BDAb2XOZ-J6vO4vp4W3k5Z0xmT6oYbodWDLI
  9. USPS is still digging out from under their holiday overload. Many places are still advising customers to expect exceptional delays on all mail orders. And USPS still has this warning on their tracking page: ALERT: USPS IS EXPERIENCING UNPRECEDENTED VOLUME INCREASES AND LIMITED EMPLOYEE AVAILABILITY DUE TO THE IMPACTS OF COVID-19. WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE. We had a package we mailed Priority Mail on December 17th just arrive on January 22nd. And I know someone who just got their Christmas card last week. And as Kate said above, their use of tracking is hit or miss. Many times they're just pushing stuff through rather than taking the time to scan it. I wouldn't get concerned until mid March.
  10. I have a smattering of the old Heritage Galacta stuff, so might be able to cobble together something there I guess. As intriguing as the Buck Rogers idea is, I think the limited figure choice will be problematic. If it's like his other rules, and you need 6-8 different "types" for each warband/crew, things will get repetitive fast.
  11. So, since it’s Feb 1st, I wonder if the Pledge Manager will close today?
  12. Choaswolf box was mailed this morning to @Thoramel. When I got the box it had developed a couple splits along the edges, so I switched it out for a fresh box.
  13. Made my selections from the Chaoswolf Box: Reaper Fruit Seller, Plastic Monk reading a book (game piece?), Bones Pack Donkey, 4 Bones Skeletons, Bones Chronoscope Pylons and Barriers, Metal Ghoul/Ghost(?) figure, Flight stands, a couple 1" plastic bases, and (not shown) 6 metal washers. The box went out this morning to @Thoramel
  14. Thank you, Iridil! Thank you, Poilu_1914! Though I painted him yellow to serve as the war wizard for a yellow-themed army, I must admit the passing resemblance to Sir Perf did not escape me!
