  1. We ended up having to deblister a lot of things to get the box to close again. 😂 And thanks for adding that bugbear! It's a great mini.
  2. Thanks for those! Kaosball is one of those things where the sculpts are great but not something I'd ever need six of. My housemate grabbed a few more, along with a lot of lead.
  3. My bounty from the Rat13 box! That thing was absolutely stuffed to the point where I'm not sure how to repack it. Waiting on my housemate to go through it before I even try. The Ral Partha arcanaloth is by far my favorite from the pile. Can't wait to paint that smug face.
  4. Seconded! I ended up having a lot of down time because of the reduced scheduled gaming options and better facilitation for pickup games would have been helpful.
  5. After not DMing at all this year, I'm definitely planning on fixing that in 2022! Also trying to get my housemates to come for real this time.
  6. "Corbie" or "Patricia" is good. Will be lugging around a canvas bag with an octopus and many pins. Pls no hugging or I will die.
  7. First time and pumped! Location: Austin, TX International shipping: No Box starter: No
  8. I grabbed the Cat Dragon in Tree. Tangentially related, does anyone know if the last batch of goodie bags was supposed to be sans Bones? I also got my first ever bonus sample paint so it's no big deal, but I'm curious.
  9. My top three keep vacillating and may change as we get more renders but: 1. Dark Depths - I'm a sucker for aquatic monsters and fish people. This set was made for me. 2. Fan Favorites - This is a perfect mix of "useful" for me as a DM if I want to do WYSIWYG monsters combined with some great PC options (finally, some good 5e firbolgs!) and weird stuff I'd probably get for funsies (chicken swarms and axolotl people!). I'm also happy to be able to get some of my favorite limited edition figures that I couldn't snag before (i.e., Ungorth and the robolds). 3. Greek Odyssey - Classic, well-sculpted critters. I don't have a lot to say about why I need this set but I do. 4. Brinewind - A lot of good stuff but I'm not sure if what I'd definitely buy at retail (quite a few but especially 718 and the otterfolk) would make this worth it for me. 5. Chronoscope - Not a lot of "useful" minis but a whole lot of fun stuff. Definitely getting the nightgaunt and shoggoth at retail, and the metal version of Mr. Grimm has been sitting on my wishlist for a while. 6. Dungeon Dwellers - This is a great set and would be a must get for me... if I didn't already have half of those minis. A good value full of amazing sculpts for people who didn't get those freebies. 7. Daimyo - Not a lot interests me here. I might eventually pick up the dragon, giant oni, and smaller oni/ogre.
  10. As a DM, as long as the minis themselves are the same scale as others in my collection, I don't really care about the larger base sizes. I rarely match my critters to minis and there are plenty of large-size fiends they could sub in for. However, having them that size does limit their use as player characters. For example, one of my players thought that the Burt Reynolds incubus would be perfect for her, uh, friendly tiefling bard, but she wouldn't be able to use him as such unless he fits on a medium base.
  11. A bunch of them are! Boulderkin = galeb duhr analogue The Thing in the Well = looks like an Elder Brain to me Goroloth = aboleth analogue Leucrotta = classic D&D critter most recently found in Volo's Guide to Monsters 1001 = the metal version is called Surkar, Orc Shaman 1020 = looks like a cloaker to me 1025 = D&D-style basilisk Not sure about the others, but those are the ones I recognize.
  12. Yep! I headed up to Denton for ReaperCon this year but probably will have to skip the wrap party for personal reasons. That rose gold, though...
  13. Meanwhile, I moved to central Texas from Maryland partly for the usual heat and it's currently 29.
