    floppy hat skeleton wizard??

    The newest D&D campaign book. With 5E conversions of the old U1-U3 modules plus a bunch of Dragon Magazine adventures all spread out to form a full sea/shore campaign. Also adds a bunch of things, like the dead alchemist in U1 The Sinister Secret Of Saltmarsh now animating and coming out of his secret door so players no longer have to worry about searching for secret passages in order to find neat things. And, well. The art portrays him as a skeleton with a floppy hat.

    Need newb advice

    To answer a few quick questions that got repeated, my brush-on primers and sealers are Reaper, my unbased minis are plastic (a few Tehnolog orcs and goblins, Marvel Handful Of Heroes and Heroclix stuff for the small and medium stuff, plus Papo, Schleich, plus some cheapo dollar store critters, Chinasaurs and knockoff monsters for good measure). The miniature with the broken claws is the Werecat... Very small detail... (had to google it because mine was unbased so I didn't have its name)

    Need newb advice

    Ok so I'm not new to painting (maybe not at this small scale but I've done action figures a lot) but I've never worked pewter, or needed to use primer or sealer, or had to base, so... Here's four really dumb newbie questions I'd love to get answers to. Primer: Can I use my normal paint brushes to apply primer? Or should I get a dedicated brush? Sealer: Same question... Basing: Not decorating the base but gluing a mini to the base. Not slotted minis but plastic, unslotted minis and figurines... Can I use regular superglue for this, or should I get something different? I've seen crafters use something called "E6000", am I better off seeking that out? Repairs: Oof. The less newbie question... I have a Mage Knight tiger-man mini that's missing the claws on its right hand, I'd love to repaint it as Final Fantasy 1's interpretation of a Rakshasa (the Mancat if you remember the NES game) but I want to fix these tiny tiny details... could really use ideas. Thanks for any input I could get on this!
  5. Gotta love how the only way to make that cartoon good is to just take the visuals but ignore the tone, the characterization or the stupid plotlines.

    Colonel Kane' PbP

    So did one of the two Pathfinder games I ended up joining. As well as two Roll20 games a number of years ago.

    Colonel Kane' PbP

    You say that, yet it's the first game we've been in together yet it's only the latest out of all the PbP games I've joined that never made it past level 1. Hell even every proper D&D game I've been a player in just fizzled out before a year went by without ever reaching a narrative conclusion.
  8. That one's more of a White Dragon with its single rear-facing horn though. The Young Forest Dragon seems to aim for Green Dragon proper. No Bones version though. https://www.reapermini.com/search/young dragon/latest/03350
  9. ARGFHGTDEFIEFHIFEFEFEHUQQWKWQKWQKLW Two packages came in yesterday while I wasn't home. That's normal, and here in Canada they usually leave a flyer to notify you, that has a code so you can go pick it up at your nearest PO counter (usually in a nearby pharmacy) BUT for some reason the mailman yesterday was a fudgeweasel and decided to send one package to the same place as always... AND THE OTHER ONE TO ANOTHER MUCH FURTHER AWAY PO COUNTER. Which I hadn't noticed til I was at my PO because this never happened before. So I get to my PO, the counter girl tells me about this, so now I gotta rush home so I can look up the public transit trajectory to get to the other, it's not fun. But at least on top of my minis and supplies orders I got some fudge-covered Oreos at the other place, so it wasn't the worst loss ever I guess. First package was a bunch of Heroclix minis, mostly Serpent Society fellows to convert into Yuan-Ti or other fantasy serpentmen (plus an Arkham Video Game version of Killer Croc to finally hopefully convert into that big snakeman warrior I always wanted), and also Grimnak from Heroscape, the awesome t-rex riding orc warlord type character. Freakin a buck twenty five for that amazing piece. How is it not more in demand, I ask you? Second was Reaper. Buncha metallic paints, bases for Small, Medium, Large and Huge type creatures, plus the Dungeon Dwellers male Plague Doctor (and I mean, it's about time! My campaign's BBEG, before ascending to godhood, was a cult leader/death cleric in a plague doctor-style attire!) and the free orc Shaman. So between Grimnak and the shaman, my orc minis count is currently.... 31. It's probably not gonna stop there. XD Also did not receive this yet... but just scored a still-sealed TSR Clerics & Druids miniature boxed set for 30$ plus some shipping. PS: Debasing this many Heroclix was not very fun. PPS: The Heroclix Hogun I got looked a lot better in pictures than IRL. His pose is doofy as all heck.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Yeah got em mixed up.... Cloud Giants in 5e are are just so.... indistinctive.... Almost identical to Storm Giants aside from skin tone. So hard to commit them to memory.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I believe that Cloud Giant represents a special "type" from Volo's Guide To Monsters, not a vanilla Cloud Giant. Name of it escapes me right now... Volo's had a bunch of these, a multi-headed Frost Giant obviously inspired by the old Monster In My Pocket Jotun Troll, a Fire Giant dual spiked shields wielder, a Stone Giant with bits of ships embedded in his body, a Hill Giant that eats all the time and a Storm Giant "quintessent".

    Anyone want to ID some old minis?

    Bumping... Used my iPhone 4 camera in place of the 17-year old digicam, with and without flash, against a neutral background. Hoping this can help.
