    RPG Gaming with Minis

    Wow that was a lot of feedback very quickly. I am glad to hear that so many of you just kinda wing it and use what is handy. I have this terrible habit of trying to have "the best" or "the perfect" of something when I start a new venture. To that end I often spend way more money than I should on things that probably won't be used for a while. Ideally I think I will be utilizing a mixture of minis, tokens and other proxies while I start this new campaign. I was checking out the cardboard pop outs that are available from Paizo and might invest in a set of those for a bit. I would ideally like to have minis for everything but I paint at a glacially slow pace and frankly I am too neurotic to do quick paint jobs on anything except maybe skeletons or other one tone minis. I definitely like the white board idea and the glass bead idea as well. This is some good info!

    RPG Gaming with Minis

    As I have been painting mins, I have been more and more drawn to the idea of playing tabletop games with them. I have never actually played a D&D or Pathfinder Campaign with minis and I was just wondering if anyone around here can give me some advice on how to do this. Believe it or not, there are not many YouTube vids on the topic that are useful. The thing I am having the most issue with is the idea of using minis for every single encounter. Most of the games I have played and the few I have DM'd have been action oriented and I can't imagine having a mini for EVERY SINGLE encounter. Especially if there are multiple monsters. So as I develop a new campaign I am thinking that I might have minis for some of the more challenging encounters and kind just leave the lesser ones to the players imagination. I would still probably want to do as many as I could though but is seems somewhat silly to have to worry about setting up for a couple of level one skeletons. So what's your take? Do you find it better to use minis when gaming? If so, do you use them for every encounter? On a side note can anyone direct me to a good set of minis to represent human thugs/ruffians/brigands

    Getting to Know Each Other - June 2016

    I don't think I have ever had any opinion about something changed by being persuaded. I am always willing to listen to someone and if they present a cogent, rational and intelligent counter-point to my beliefs/opinions I am willing to consider it but I base my opinions on my own experiences and (truly I don't mean to sound pompous when I say this) I am the smartest person I know so it's hard to be persuaded when I generally know more than the person arguing me. I am an Historian after all and we basically need to know everything I read some other responses to this question and will add the addendum that I generally avoid debating people about anything. In my experiences (and given my particular weltanschauung) I find that those who "debate" me aren't so much trying to change my opinion as they are lambasting me for having an opposing one. I am also a firm believer that, as someone else stated, I basically do not care what others think or do so long as it does not physically hurt people or infringe upon the rights of others to exist as they see fit. Basically, I won't tell you what to do or think and you don't tell me what to do or think...unless I wind up as the supreme ruler of the planet...then its Obey time all around.
  10. I don't have the mouslings but I think they would probably make the best contest. Simply because I think they'd be a really unique challenge for many painters.

    2016 Summer Exchange

    I just started mine a few days ago and have some base coating done. I would have done more but I was exhausted from the mini I painted just before as it was a trial and error experience that left me spent emotionally and artistically. Shameful anecdote, I picked out a mini to do for my recipient in keeping with their desires and then fell in love with it and couldn't come to terms with the thought of sending it off. It was just too awesome! I got another one for my recipient that is very nice that I think (hope) they will like but I suppose I should make a small general apology as my exchange partner kinda got screwed out of a really amazing mini! I promise the new one is really nice too and I will paint it to my best abilities but sorry...that first one is just...wow...I am so ashamed....

    Wet Pallet... Painting will never be the same..

    I jumped into the hobby pretty hardcore and splurged on paints and I quickly made a wet pallet (because everyone here on the forums kept ranting about how it changed their lives) so I don't think my wet pallet "epiphany" was as revelatory as some others but I can attest that I only recently purchased a Kolinsky Sable brush and that changed my painting life forever. I have so many brushes I will never use again except for slopping on base coats and washes now because I can't even conceive of using anything but my KS brush ever again. I am ordering 2-3 more as a birthday gift to myself. That was a joyful moment probably on par with the wet pallet "experience" that I can honestly say is thanks to the forumites here that always deliver amazing advice!

    89024: Holy Vindicator

    Thank you. It was a struggle to find the right levels of color that I was looking for. I mean A REAL struggle...this mini probably has an extra 4 layers of paint than it needs around the reds.
