    Dreadmere - Sheriff Getmose Drumfasser

    The red coat really stands out...I might have to stea borrow that idea when it comes time...
  4. Well, there's something you can't un-see. *shudder* I think the generator is my favorite. Mo-ar pow-ah!

    A dunkleosteus? It's a little small, but would make a nice "hound" for some tiiks...
  6. WAITAMINUTE "Clockwork Brass"? Knowing that Reaper does not like to reuse names, would this be the same mix as the LE paint (09665)? Or just an "oops"?
  7. I recommend this. I've been able to convince the wife to do this a time or two, and it was very tasty.
  8. (Sort of) here, too. Sitting at work one day about a year ago, my ticker goes into overdrive. This has happened before and I could usually reset the rhythm with a couple muscle group contractions. It wasn't happening this time, though. After about twenty minutes of this my left shoulder starts going tingly and the chest is feeling constricted. I keep trying to reset the rhythm and almost succeed once or twice. Another twenty minutes or so, and I go to lunch and call the wife. I got a nice lecture for that. Diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat (PSVT). Doc said cut the caffeine, lose a couple hundred pounds, eat better. I got some blood pressure pills in return. Then potassium pills. I've cut some caffeine, gained some weight (not intentionally, but it's not like I'm really trying to lose, either), and eating pretty much the same. The blood pressure pills allow me to keep the irregular heartbeat under control. I'm good as long as the job-stress stays reasonable.

    I can take no credit for that. Others have been commenting on it since ReaperCon although they usually mention spiders instead of mouslings.

    Aganzarax is definitely my top pick. Shavynra is closely tied with the (not-yet-named) "white" with the spikey mane/frill. I already have the Pathfinder White, so that is having some impact on my rating. Valfuryx and the (not-yet-named) "shadow" (I call him Muttly) are next. "Eeek-a-mousling" is in last. But I've never been real fond of "red" dragons.

    Time to go through the couch cushions! *later* I got three M&Ms, a toothpick, four Cheerios, and a pill(!?)...will that do it? The "problem" with cherry picking is that sometimes there are more cherries than were expected...

    I wouldn't say "going crazy," but I'm certainly "waiting with enthusiasm." That may, or may not, be relevant to my reported level of sanity. The current add-ons just aren't grabbing me like they have in the past. Which is fine, as I've got a few minis from Bones III and Bones IV (and general purchases)...

    They could be used for t'skrang in Earthdawn as well, although I would normally consider the t'skrang to be more "raptor-ish." But, still, humanoid dino... Beggars and choosers. *shrug*
  14. My October Reaper order arrived today! B'thuhl (gesundheit) Bathalian Pirate MSP Prom Night Pink MSP Stark Naked Red Brown Triad Shading Colors Triad Bathalian (Bones) Barnabus Frost, Pirate Captain (Bones) Dark Dwarf Pounder (Bones Black, Free!) Breast Cancer Awareness Pink Sample Paint! (It's PURPLE) Ghoulie Bag Graveyard Bone Fresh Blood Female Wraith (in translucent purple) Tootsie Rolls, Smarties, and a couple Starburst Oh, and I acquired two cans of Diet Coke from the breakroom. Some "official" deal closed the room over lunch (no advance warning), so when I finally go to lunch mid-afternoon I helped myself to leftovers.

    New releases?

    The wraiths are coming! OK, getting Spattered Crimson is going to be easier than I thought...I might even get that Fire Giant Huntsman. I've got to do something with those extra hounds.

    Ghoulie bag

    I [don't] want to look a gift bottle in the dropper, but I had really been hoping for Spattered Crimson so that I could complete the triad from prior years...Completely selfish, I know. And I wouldn't have objected to a "Hallowed Orange" or "Pumpkin Orange." Also completely selfish, I know. Now I've "gotta" come up with an order to justify getting the Spattered Crimson. I can't stand having incomplete triads (it's like Reaper knows...)

    Ghoulie bag

    My order was $42 and change. So, unofficially, $40 pre-shipping and any applicable taxes. I've not been "rocked" in the last two years (the only time that I've been ordering), and frankly I am glad of it. I'd be mighty ticked if I got a rock instead of a cool mini.

    Ghoulie bag

    One of the Reaper Twitchtube stream-things showed the bonus mini as "Female Wraith". I think that's the same one from the Graveyard Expansion 77536 as opposed to 03799. The paints are the thing. Are we getting a BCA Pink and a limited (or regular) paint? Two limited edition paints? Which ones? I have to wait til my box gets here...hopefully by the end of the week.
  19. Patrick McGoohan. Although I know him best from The Prisoner--The original, not the piece of drek that AMC tried to convince us was worth watching. He was allegedly up for the roles of Gandalf and Dumbledore. I can't see him as Dumbledore, but he could have been a vicious Gandalf. He wasn't the most prolific actor, but worked steadily.

    Your other half wouldn't be named "Tucker" would he? Just a reference for the grognards in here. Tomorrow night will be a surprise for me! No way for me to check on things during the day (work is locked down pretty thoroughly, and I don't have a device with a data plan). I'm actually tempted to take another day or two away from KS just to witness the chaos!
  22. Not everywhere...You just have to know which Shoppes are safe... So the other week we are at the store and missing our third. So D perused the store library for some options. I'm generally pretty flexible, so I let him pick. I'll play just about anything once. He ended up pulling down Extraordinary Adventures: Pirates! for the first round. You have three ships, and each ship is heading for the flotilla on a different path. You raid merchants, ports, and acquire booty along the way. As you raid merchants and ports you acquire your deck and manage your hand. Some cards have abilities, some count as treasure, and some just offer more wind (to make your ships go faster). We gaffed several rules early on, which made a big difference. We were just about unable to use the abilities on the cards because we always needed more wind, and so were left with a bunch of "crappy" starter cards when we should have been culling our decks of useless things and replacing them with booty from the merchant raids. D won, but I still liked it. The problem is, though, that with a couple key cards you can simply outclass anyone else on the board (unless we missed another rule somewhere that would limit that). I'd probably have to end up painting the little pirate ships if I ever got the game. I mean, there were only 18 that would need to be painted, the others could stay plain plastic. Next we picked up Dead Panic. I didn't much care for this game, although that could be due to us only playing with two characters when you really need a full roster. One bad card sealed our fate on the first turn and the zombies just showed up and went nuts. I think I survived three or four turns, outlasting D by two.
  23. Does the five second rule apply to bacon? Either way, there's still some in the pan. So it could be worse.

    Look, if I want to eat my beverage I'll have a pint (or three) of stout...which sounds pretty good right now. The more I look at that dragon in the core, the more I think it will be "droopy." Speaking as a "not engineer" shouldn't it be fairly simple to to figure out the area of a contact point, the weight of the plastic that it must support, and determine whether or not those numbers are in alignment? I know that there would be other variables (like temperature), but... I think I'm liking that cloaker (120) as well. It would make a nice substitute for a giant bat and a straight pin could probably hold off any potential droopiness. And I find myself wanting to make warbands out of the kobolds, Greek-style adventurers, and merfolk. I already picked up a couple aquatic critter-types with that thought, but never took the idea further. The bathaliens hold some promise there as well as there's already a pirate and a caster-type with a staff. I really want to see that Greek-style expansion (or whatever).
