  1. These all sound great! My only input would be to look up watch parts on a certain auction site, but you've already thought about that. Beyond basing, I have no experience using gears to make plausible creatures.
  2. Um, I'm just here for the GURPS greatness. Did you figure out your Adventuring Guild problem?
  3. Yeah, when I got into GURPS, I took one look and decided my fate. (That sweet, delicious fate.) I've read GURPS Fantasy and re-read its campaign notes not too long ago. I've also stumbled across a duo of DMs that play D&D, Web DM, and have watched a bunch of their videos on campaigns and roleplaying in general. Just because it's D&D they're talking about doesn't mean 95% of it isn't great ground for GURPS. Anyway, there's no real world I want to emulate. I've got this idea to set everything off in the desert with a very Crusades-esque feel. The PCs will be on the "European side" to start things off - in fact, they'll be a group of mainly holy people at a waypoint between two desert cities. There are a few different seeds that could be rolled for (remember: this is a solo game, so I'm trying to inject some variation) that I've already thought up. Wait a tic... I think I've already started the campaign . I've got a party (that has yet to be rolled for, but still), there's a starting point, there are different things to do... woo hoo! Problem solved! That's a good point, though I wonder what the use of midwife magic would look like on those statistics. That is to say you're running a magic-heavy campaign. For the gritty realism style, that's absolutely something to think about. Hmm. I like this.
  4. Sorry for the late response, @Colonel Kane. I have all the GURPS. Well, maybe not all, but I do own every GURPS Dungeon Fantasy title (not to be confused with Dungeon Fantasy powered by GURPS, the boxed game), Fantasy, all the Thaumatology titles, Magic titles... listen, I go deep with GURPS. If you need a review of any Fantasy title, I'm your cow (see profile pic). I'm not looking for a campaign generator so much as I'm looking at how to start the campaign. What are the beginning steps I need to do to prepare a campaign? Do I Point Crawl or go straight into Hex Crawl? Should I have an adventure already ready to play? Stuff like that.
  5. Two Hour Wargames. Period. You want Fantasy? Maybe some Sci-Fi? Want to play massed-battle games? They have it all.
  6. Love the Pinkerton agent. (For reference: if you have a problem, the double-barrel will fix it!) Jesse James looks excellent in Confederate colours. He looks dark and road-worn, perfect for something dark like Dracula's America. Way to go!
  7. It's no big problem to remove. I've trimmed her neck once before and both her neck and head pop right off. I'm actually excited to work on her again! Woo hoo!
  8. I see what you mean about the body proportions. This is where I quit with her those years ago and never got around to finish shaping her up. That bit her legs are connected to has a divot in the front that makes the whole piece look like the continuation of her legs - an unfortunate look but an easy fix. I'll make sure to add a better waist to her before/while sculpting because, now that I look at it, she doesn't have well-defined hips. The neck is pinned but, in my amateur haste, I also glued everything, so there's that to deal with. I know better now from other models I've done, and that's a huge plus. This diagram is new to me and I've saved it for this and future projects. Very handy stuff.
  9. So, I've got this model I was working on a few years ago but I don't know whether I should scrap her and start v2 or continue on and begin sculpting on her. The base for the model (I guess you could call it a proprietary armature at this point) is two models from Games Workshop - Lelith Hesperax and a Lhamaean. The former has been positioned to a standing pose from her original kneeling pose and the latter's torso and head have been taken for the base model. Through the power of smooshing (and lots and lots of pinning), all the pieces were fitted together to get what you see below. Here's the problem: I don't know whether I should go ahead and start putting greenstuff on her or just scrap it all to heck. My frustration lies mainly with her neck - I don't know if it's too long. It seems too long, in my opinion. After looking at anatomical models of necks and shoulder-to-neck-to-head height, I'm more confused than when I started. I need another set of eyes on this base model that won't just placate me with a "She's fine" answer.
  10. I couldn't love this any more if I tried. Way to go! (You've given me ideas...)
  11. These guys have a special place with me. You've done them great justice!
  12. Apparently I'm called a "Hybrid" diabetic. I have a very confusing body...
  13. I always leave something out. Ideally, a place to start. The only things I have right now about the campaign are it's set in a desert/bad lands (lots of rocky climbing stuff), the party is composed of holy people (clerics, priests, and paladins - the priests being the really squishy ones), and the main opposition to the party is a force of missionaries/priests/prophets of a monotheistic "evil god" with soldiers under their control. The party will also run into Chthonic beings, undead, and, if it goes this far, the primordial force of everything. For a start, though, they'll just be dealing with the bad guys ! I've got Advantages/Disadvantages set firmly. Also, it's a solo campaign, so I doubt I'll have a "that guy" in the group, but you never know...
  14. Hello fellow gamers! If this isn't in the correct place, please tell me/move it where it should go. Over the past few years, I've gotten an itch to make my own campaign. To that end, I've gotten a lot of resources together (GURPS-related and not related) to help me with this task. Here's the deal: I want this to go as smoothly as possible, so I'm looking for something along the lines of a campaign builder - something to help me lay the groundwork and whatnot. I don't know if the interwebs has anything like this or not, so I come to you all for aid. As for programs I have that could assist me in making this an easier project, I have to say Scrivener for Mac is stellar. It's used extensively when I'm writing on my books. Thanks for any help you can offer !
  15. Well, looks like I'm back on the forums after a two-year absence. What took me so long? I almost died twice. I told everyone my health wasn't great! But seriously, don't mess around with not knowing you aren't a Type I and Type II diabetic at the same time. With those two hospital visits out of the way and my mental health getting back to semi-normal (I mean, what is normal?), I thought it'd be a good thing to come back around.
  16. I was wondering if Reaper's metal miniatures are being phased out in favour of the Bones resin. It seems like there are more Bones releases than metal lately. This is probably unfounded, but I'd like to check.
  17. I know I said there would be a picture when my paint got here but I'm too tired to take one. Yay chronic genetic diseases! Anyway, it took all of one day for my package to get here via UPS. The contents included what was listed in the previous post: 54-count BYOPS, 4x Lysette, and a Ghoulie Bag. I got a translucent Marie Laveau Bones model in the Ghoulie Bag (at least I think that's the model). If it's her, the gift was tailored for me. Just a heads-up for anyone looking to order the new Tarnished Copper and New Copper paints: they aren't actually metallics. The former will be good for some rust effects and the latter for makeup when mixed with the skin tone. All that's left to arrive is my Anvil order which should be here by next Friday or so. Huzzah !
  18. I just ordered a BYOPS of 54 paints. It feels like a large weight has been lifted off me. Shifting paint ranges is bittersweet in a way: I'm looking forward to getting into the Reaper paints that I've already gotten and those that have just been ordered but I've been with Citadel so long that it feels like I'm leaving an old friend. Oh well. The 19 new metallic paints that just got ordered will have to keep me company ! Listing everything will take too much space so they'll get a picture, like last time. I know everyone is excited about that. Also, 4x Lysette models are headed my way. Nice. Sadly, this will be the last hobby-related purchase for about 6 months or so as I'm saving to get my mother to Colorado for medical treatment. Normally I'd say the hobby is more important but it's for family. He who dares wins, right?
  19. You might look at Spectre Miniatures. They have a lot of modern infantry.
  20. Huzzah! My things came today ! Getting a box from the UK to Texas in 5-6 days is... astounding. I placed the order last Wednesday, it shipped that Thursday, and arrived today. I expected it by Friday at the earliest. The Reaper order arrived, too. It shipped from Texas and arrived in Texas. It had a big two hour trip to get here. Here's a picture of the Reaper order. I know I don't usually take photos so feast your eyes upon its gloriousness!
  21. I've ordered a bunch of stuff that should be here this week (hopefully). Anvil Industries sent my order on Thursday and it's already in the States. I would list what I got but it would take up too much room and putting it in Spoilers would tax my fingers. They're models for my solo game which, at this point, looks like it's going to be "Humans vs Space Bugs". I also made my first Reaper order in six months. Guess who's switching paint companies. I'll give you a hint: he has a very long beard and is me. That'll keep y'all guessing . Anyway, I got a lot of paint for the aforementioned solo models and earned two free Diva the Blessed. More paint will be ordered next month, too, so someone's going to be getting a few of those gorgeous Lysette models. That's me. That's all me .
  22. Thanks for the help, everyone, and sorry I'm late in responding. I'll be looking at Pure and Dragon Black for the upcoming order. Huzzah!
  23. Right then, here's another question about the Reaper paint line. The last question was two months ago but I still feel like I'm bugging everyone. Anyway, I've decided to finally take the plunge and do some serious paint ordering for my solo game miniatures. Before I order at the end of the month (to get that Diva model for nothing), there seems to be a hiccup: there are a few different black paints in the line. I'm looking for a black to basecoat... black, funnily enough. There's Pure Black, Dragon Black, Noir Black, Nightmare Black, etc. Which of these (and the others not listed) would be closest to Citadel's Abaddon Black? Some of the blacks have a blue hue, brown hue, or whatever for different looks, but it's hard to tell from the sample mockups which ones have those hues and which don't. If anyone could break those down for me, I'd be grateful.
  24. No, I won't be backing the Kickstarter. I've got way too many models to start buying more, I've got precious little money to spend due to the dog having to go to the vet (she has allergies to everything, apparently), and I don't like the Bones material. That sums it up.
