    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    You got my hopes up for a second I thought there would be an extra update XD Double checked the kickstarter page: "Update Schedule The next Friday Update will be the third Friday of February, the 15th. Our March Updates will be the first and third Fridays, the 1st and the 15th. Thanks!"

    Miniature tracking software?

    Yeah I agree, I did also consider including price but chickened out. Admittedly I get a LOT of my miniatures as birthday / Christmas gifts so it's not as bad as the list suggests... but it's still not good.
  3. We played Chronicles of Crime on Tuesday, we played 3 player and I really enjoyed it! I'd never played a boardgame that had a phone app as a main component of it so that was very novel, it was fun, took about 40 minutes and I would happily play again! We were at the boardgame cafe technically as part of a larger group, so after that we also played Codenames, we had one very good round and one very bad round!

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Someone in a Facebook group I'm in is looking for an ID on this- anyone up to the challenge? Apparently it was donated to a charity shop without the top part of the packaging XD Never mind! His identity has been revealed!

    Manufacturer LINE SKU Pack Name Individual Reference Base Size Sculptor Notes Status Acquired Completed These are my columns, Status is either "Inventory, WIP, Painted or Kickstarter Unshipped" I like the idea of a Material column, I might add that too. Also I tend to make the Pack name column a clickable link to the webpage its available from- but this is not at all up to date.

    Yeah I can’t see the chibis seeing paint time anytime soon. Anything that falls under “character mini” is probably going to the bottom of the pile really, as a DM I am trying to prioritise monsters, I paint “characters” a bit but I mainly try and paint what I think is going to see table time, so if a character mini isn’t earmarked as an npc, none of my players take a shine to it or or doesn’t match a pre-made character I’m building for some reason... it goes on the top shelf. Which sounds like a place of honour, but is actually a reference to me needing a chair to get to it, and as such am less likely to!

    I've had that. I caught it off a heroin addict (wish I was kidding!) who overdosed at my venue while I was duty managing- it was a long night and then followed by a really not fun illness I resigned from duty managing as soon as I was well enough to come back in- I wasnt paid enough to be in a position where I was saving druggies and catching viruses from them. Hope your family don't have it too bad and get better soon!

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Oooh cool- a shame there are a few in there that are already released elsewhere though, the 2 pirates and executioner at least, maybe others too- I'll definitely be keeping an eye out for this though, some nice terrain bits too.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Is this a Wizkids unpainted big Townspeople pack? Don't think I've seen anything about that would be interested to see if you have a link? I don't set up a map for every tavern or shop my players go into, but if your players are prone to shenanigans it never hurts to have that stuff prepped! If for example, gnolls invade the town for a raid it's handy to have a lot of townpeople, or if your players are planning a heist on a local jewellery store etc- otherwise if they're talking to a townperson sometimes I put a mini on top of my DM screen to indicate that's who they're talking to, otherwise I might just show them a picture of the person either on my tablet or I have a bunch of the pathfinder "face cards"

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Not yet! It’s on my to do list to watch a few unboxings of it maybe- I would consider it for a sea faring campaign but that’s not what my next one is shaping up to be- I’ll probably give it a miss, but it’s nice to dream!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I've been thinking about this for a few days but have been unable to think of the proper word for it- whats the word for like a litter/palanquin type seat (covered) that goes on an animal's (like an elephant) back? I feel like I've only seen it in cartoons and it's vastly impractical, but I'd still like to see one that's on the pack terrapin.

    ... These are just patches right? As in, "leave them around a band member too long and it'll be on their denim jacket next week" patches?

    Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    The bring and buy sale at the local board game cafe was this morning, I’m friends with the organiser so I got to scan the list in advance and I knew there wasn’t anything I was desperate to pick up, but we went for a browse anyway and ended up picking up a couple of bits- a collection of warhammer models which turned out to be a bit of a bargain for what it was- but I don’t play that so don’t really know all the details (my knowledge of warhammer is solely advising OH on how to paint what he wants and helping to build the figures) I got a copy of Playing At The World, which I’m excited to read, but realistic of that ambitions time scale.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    We used to have a great fabric store right near my work, when I was more inclined to make things I was always picking up “scraps” and sewing up simple dresses for my friends and their kids from there! Unfortunately it closed down and became a Taco Bell, even more unfortunately I still visit there just as much... There is another fabric store in town but it’s more expensive, further away and full of very condescending staff... I rarely visit. I do keep meaning to go though as I would like to rifle through the scraps for something cool to make a new dicebag from!

    Black 3.0

    Yeah I think it's good value for a cool product- but my need for it for 10-20 miniatures would probably be 3-5ml max, so it's not for me! If I was a more artistic person who had more uses for it sure- unfortunately that's not the case! If further down the line they end up doing mini size bottles for around mini size prices I'd probably pick one up

    Black 3.0

    I like the idea of maybe using this on faces for minis that are like hooded humanoids with no heads / faces to go in the void- unfortunately that idea isnt worth £25 to me, but I'm sure it has way cooler and more practical uses to other people

    OH and I just cooked the WORST dinner we've had in a long time. We decided to try these new vegan "shrimps" that appeared in the meat-free section of our supermarket of choice. They. Were. Disgusting. First of all once we took them out the box they were in they looked horrifically real- probably not a downside for a lot of people but idk, I found it super offputting. We cooked them as per package directions and they were SUPER rubbery- and I cant say for sure because we made them in a stirfry but they seemed to taste nothing like prawns, or anything really for that matter except the sauce they were cooked in. 0/10 would not recommend. The situation was not helped by the fact the chilli OH put in was WAY too hot for both of us, I told him if he had to put it in to de-seed it and use less than half, but he thought it would be fine, then he ended up complaining more than I did about how spicy it was! I used to have a higher spice threshold but nowadays I'm a mega wuss. Have send OH out to find replacement dinner. In other news tomorrow my local board game club is having a bring and buy sale. We'll be going to have a browse and then play a few games. It's also a good chance for me to scout for players as I'd still like another 1-2 players for my next campaign...
  18. I’d like to participate please :)

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    It's going to be a quiet month for me, I'm saving money for a mini-holiday in March so any "fun money" is going towards that. So I guess I'm looking forward to spending a lot of time at home hopefully painting through the shelf of shame a bit!
  20. I'm potentially interested in taking part in one of these- but I know these forums are mainly full of US people- has there ever been a UK one or is there not enough demand for that?

    Bones You'd Like to See, thread #4

    Stirge / Multipack of Stirges! Or, if that is IP, then might I suggest: Blood Bats! Size category: Tiny Having real trouble finding some of these, and they're a pretty common low level d&d enemy. If these came in packs of 4-6 in sculpts that are easy to mount on a flight stand on were integrated into a stalactite that'd be pretty cool

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Over yesterday and today I got several "back in stock" e-mails from UK suppliers with lots of the more sought after minis like the Owlbears and Mimics, and I've also seen places have finally been getting stock of the large red, white and green pathfinder dragons.I'm holding off picking any up at the moment with Bones 4 incoming though, I'm going to have enough to get through (not that I dont already) without adding those to the mix!

    I love that pack turtle- the more I look at it the more I suspect that will be the first thing I paint from Bones 4!

    Good Eats!

    I’ve been told before- but I regularly forget that the USA has INSANE prices for fresh fruit and veg, a cauliflower here is £1- (US $1.31) but often on sale for 50-70p. If I went to a supermarket and they wanted $6 (£4.60) for a cauliflower I would die laughing- even $2.50 (£1.90) I would expect some sort of a glorious/huge heritage vegetable. No wonder the fast food vs home cooking culture is so different from one side of the pond to the other! Here we can also get frozen veg in bags- where you often get more for your money and it’s still good for lots of things- frozen veg curry is one of my lazy-day cooking specialities! A handful of every bag of frozen veg in the freezer, a few tablespoons of curry powder or assorted spices and a tin of coconut milk! Simmers in a pot for 15-20 mins with little to no interruptions from me and I can even say it’s a healthy meal!
