  1. Wasn't Internet message boards the first draft of Obama's health care plan?
  2. Moffat is the same guy who is currently at the helm of the current Dr. Who show.
  3. Nudist painting sessions during reapercon? "Um, Bob, that, uh, isn't a paintbrush..."
  4. I did not know the Jedi were in the lich hunting business. Excellent painting, love the glowing swords and source lighting
  5. How did you do the bases?
  6. Thanks a ton. Having that item number really helps. I did a lot of the monsters from those sets now that I see them again. Ah, memories. Do you have these? WOC40046 (Gnoll) WOC40052 (Troll) WOC40085 (Human Rogue) WOC40089 (Elf Fighter) WOC40095 (Earth Elemental) WOC88266 (Orc Assassin) WOC40002 (Halfling Rogue) WOC40018 (Ogre) WOC40021 (Ettin) WOC40020 (Hill Giant) WOC40022 (Fire Giant) WOC40016 (Cyclops) WOC40007 (Bugbear) I don't want to go through the trouble of buying just one figure from someone, but if you have a bunch of them, maybe we could make a deal. Painted is fine as well.
  7. I just ordered a bunch of stuff from Reaper. I did not notice until afterward that the apartment number was wrong. Who do I contact to fix it prior to shipping?
  8. D&D and Ninjas, how does it get any better than that? Oh yea, add pirates.
  9. When did this thread become about Rosie 'O Donnell?
  10. Now that's the customer service spirit!!
  11. Well, I never did find it on eBay, but I did find it on CMON. My first mini If anyone knows where to find one, I'd be grateful.
  12. There is also Vallejo Model Color Putty. It's somewhat paste like, and works decent enough for filling in small gaps in which would require no detailing. Just slap it in, level it and you are ready to prime. But, if you need to recreate lost details, such as scales, green or brown stuff is the way to go.
  13. Those are exactly what I was looking for, I wish reaper made more though, with more variety. Thank you greatly. Where did you get the beheaded model? Or did you make them from regular minis?
  14. Maybe I am missing it in the Reaper Store, but do they make figures that are dead? Or assorted limbs? I wanna populate a diorama with such. I don't want to putz with chopping up other mini's and such, so I'm looking for pre-made. If not Reaper, do you know of any other manufacturer that does?
  15. I would love to repaint the first mini I ever created. I would only know it by sight though. It was an ogre, long hair with a bit of it in a tail, a fur 'toga', and a large club in one hand which it held down towards the ground, as opposed to up in the air, mid-swing. It looked a little 'trollish' with a slender face and body, but it was labeled as an ogre. It may have had a belt, but I don't think it had any extras on it, such as pouches or such. I am fairly certain that it was connected with TSR, but that's half a guess.
  16. I thought a lot of things during that movie, none of which was "these would make awesome mini's!". Amazing job none-the-less.
  17. Yes, you will always want to confirm via other means than the email. I would suggest calling rather than just simply logging in. Legitimate problems may not be presented on log in, but also because this informs the company about potentially new email scams regarding their company or products.
  18. Nah, it's pretty definitive. If you clicked on a scam link for WOW, it would be very unlikely, but not impossible, that it would say "www.blizzard.com" in the URL bar. The vast majority of scanners aren't willing to put the time in for a decent scam, must less one with that level of sophistication. They don't, after all, even both to use spell check; much less something like a man-in-the-middle or redirect attack. There are tricks, of course, but anyone paying attention to the URL should see through them.
  19. We are just lucky that the vast majority of scammers are quite stupid. If you suspect it might be a scam, it probably is. That tingling you feel is your common sense saying it's a scam. That or you have to pee, or are currently.
  20. General rule of thumb, Look at the URL's, either in the email or by hovering. Clicking on them can be dangerous, but is pretty definitive. Look at email headers. The email address may say '[email protected]', which can be spoofed. The email headers contain the entire trip the email took. '[email protected]' won't be coming from anything but the US, and definitely not china. If there is spelling errors, it's fake. If they are threatening to suspend or delete the account, it's fake. Blizzard has your money, what do they care? If you are ever in doubt, call up the supposed company, or visit them if it's local. Don't reply and don't click on the links.
  21. Duh, how could I forget about eBay. I never think of eBay when it comes to mini's. I already found the Umberhulk mini I did long ago. Damn that was just gawd-awful. Both the mini design and the colors I used...
  22. Wow, speedy replies, that's awesome. No, they were TSR branded mini's. Couldn't think of the company name when doing the original post. I'm fairly certain at least.
  23. When I first started painting mini's, I cut my teeth on some of the old AD&D miniatures they use to put out. I mean old, like pre-WotC miniatures. Anyone know of anyplace that sells them anymore? I would just repaint the first mini's, but I lost them in a move long ago. Any help would be awesome.
  24. I have one similiar to that, I just did shadowed stone for the cracks, weathered stone for the plateaus, and then dry brushed some white on top to give it a little character. No the fanciest, but it looks decent without overshadowing the mini itself, when and if I get a chance to actually paint it...
  25. Looks all around awesome. The eyes look like a SENMM though.
