Master (7/8)



  1. It's very odd. I'm still hoping it isn't the paint. That would really kill my hobby. We will investigate more in the future. I have so many minis that need painted! I did get a chance to blow through several red lights like a criminal, so that's a silver lining.
  2. Model has been scrubbed clean. And shes been around Bones for years. She didn't have a reaction on a specific location. It was breathing, face, lips. I didn't cook so nothing got into food.
  3. I was using 9427 Nut Brown. Since people are asking, let me add some details. My wife is a doctor. She's had bad allergies to lots of strange things her entire life. We've been dealing with these for 30 years as a couple. So we keep an eye on anything that might be a trigger. The only thing that was different last night was the paint. I've never painted right next to her before that I can think of. This is new paint with a new formula so might have some new chemical we never encountered before. It seems odd that three drops of paint could do this, but I've also seen her throat start closing from half a banana in an assembly hall. Also, once we got some fresh air into her at the hospital waiting room, she started to perk up. In fifteen minutes she was a whole new person. But back in the car she said she could feel it again, probably from my clothes and skin. She's tired this morning but otherwise fine. She's a machine! Toughest woman I ever met.
  4. I was brushing on a brown from about three drops of paint on a ceramic tile. I was painting a Bones model, Eldritch Demon as a gift for a buddy. I hear what you're saying, TGP, and we are running through all the details. I really don't want it to be the paints. But tonight has been very ordinary, nothing new or out of place. The only new thing is using my paints for the first time. She has some wicked bad allergies so I'm guessing that brown has some chemical that really sets her off. I honestly can't recall painting near her before. My old game rooms have been isolated to some degree. I don't have a gameroom now so my paint station is right next to her desk. I was painting and she was putting slides together on her laptop for work. I've bagged all the items that paint touched and taken it away. Eldritch Demon was not amused.
  5. Has anyone experienced anything like an allergic reaction to these paints? I had to take my wife to the ER after painting in the same room. I was using a dark brown I had never used before. She started coughing and had swelling in her lips and throat. We bolted for the hospital at that point. It got bad, but then in the ER waiting room she began to clear up. I am floored. I just bought these, just got back into the hobby, was really excited. Has anyone else had something like this happen?
  6. It's been quite a few years since I really sat down and painted. My once loved paint collection of over 75 bottles of Reaper Master Series has been in storage, transit, or ignored. Imagine my surprise when I dug them out to discover many had died. Oh the heartbreak. But my birthday is next week so I got the wife to order me a new set of 54 Bones Paints! I have them in my hands! I really haven't been this excited in a long time. Tomorrow I will arrange them, break out some minis from storage, and maybe even start to paint again. I will keep you lovely people in the loop. I'm going to have to relearn everything. That's okay. One mini at a time. I'll enjoy it all. Okay, not basing, which I hate, but even that will be a mild pleasure after so many years of no painting at all.
  7. I'll drive two hours for a grudge match! Give me two more weeks and I can start unpacking the minis again. Vampires vs Dwarves, then Mercs vs Razig.
  8. I play once in a while. It's not so much that Warlord died down as all gaming died down. Real life gave a bunch of us a punch in the face in 2016. And 2015, if you want the truth. 2017 is looking so much better! And we are all talking about gaming again. Warlord will probably come back with some epic grudge matches soon. Vampires vs Dwarves!
  9. Retreating is even better! Ah, but I hear what you're saying. He could just run around my solo model. Well, I've had good luck with this tactic because it's an emotional game. It's hard for a player to ignore that one model blocking the way. Such an easy target. It can't hurt to take one swing at it, right? What's one turn playing with him? He's so friendly and harmless. You know you want to squash him. Good. Roll the dice. Very good. Oh...he passed his Tough check? Looks like you'll have to spend another turn on him. And maybe another. And by then, it's too late! My forces have scattered your army! Your mage is dead! Your archers mincemeat! You have one Elite and a guy with Spy left! SPY!!! Now what do you do?! HAHAHAHA! Ugh, I need to game soon. But all my supplies are packed for the move. Sad...so sad.
  10. If the enemy brings a huge beat-stick you don't feel like bringing down...don't! Never fight on his terms. Send a single model to tie up Treeman for a turn. Get lucky and you tie him up for two or three. Put a really cheap model in base contact and don't attack. He has to waste a turn killing a single, cheap model with his point sink. And if your cheap guy has Tough, he might even stand back up! Frustrates the hell out of big guy. I don't bring a lot of anti-flying either. Maybe I don't face them often enough. A few crossbowmen is my best option.
  11. This is really interesting. I've used Deckard to good advantage, and the model is great. I've got some Couatl at home, too, so I could try something like this. Merc Crossbowmen are the best in the biz. I've not had great luck with the Stone Giant, though. He does draw a lot of attention, and it sounds like that's your plan, so you've got a good army. What faction are you going to face with this?
  12. I like your idea of bringing in the Inc. of Flame. Double fireball is a wonderful idea! I had three fireball capable models in one game and I roasted the enemy. Minotaurs can be good, but their large base size makes them easy targets and hard to position against smaller bases. I think I own six Minotaurs. I don't usually field more than two at a time these days, usually as bodyguards for Orba. If you do have six, watch out for choke points of terrain that will hamper your guys. You want to get them all into combat instead of only two while the other four sip tea waiting for a break in the lines. Warlord doesn't enforce any kind of cohesion, so you can spread the six out in 2-model teams that can cover more ground. I've been playing with the Ronin a lot. Try them out. Brutal guys.
  13. The fights are only getting tougher for you! So you beat the Elves? Your overconfidence shall be your undoing! We both know Sisters are much tougher. But that's not for many games. I have to kill some mummys first.
  14. I have a plan for next game. You will perish. The Elves get to be my cheerleaders.
