  1. I'm still gluing stuff together... Painting this stuff is gonna take me all the way through my 30s 😆 Anyway, a couple minis I've grown to appreciate over my glue sprees the past few days Fantasy Dinos I was sort of excited for these, since they fit in well with the campaign I'm running, but man... they just exude personality when you have them in hand. Somehow, these anthropomorphic dinosaurs just perfectly embody the archetypes they were designed for, in a way that human minis often don't even manage to accomplish. And they're so cool- the wizard triceratops, a
  2. I'm still assembling stuff (and likely will be for a while!) but I'm really starting to like all the undead in these boxes. I'm running a lot of undead in my current campaign so I have a ton of them painted, but I just love the villager undead in core and dwarves from the crypt expansion. Seems like most undead are just armored human zombies/skeletons, so having more civilian-seeming undead and dwarves really helps give scope to my hordes, making them feel like part of a bigger world.
  3. I can definitely see where you two are coming from, @veoviscool12 and @YronimosW! I feel like Dungeon Dwellers was, for lack of a better word, the least "shiny" of the expansions by a longshot. It contains a lot of stuff creatures and archetypes that many collectors (especially DM and GMs) will already have in spades. But there's just something really nice and classic about the contents here. Like, today I glued some stuff together, including the massive mamlord- way bigger than I expected! But realistically, I'll probably use him in game once or twice tops. And whi
  4. Just because I wanted "MOAR" but wasn't feeling creative enough to actually come up with examples the other day: A bit of natural terrain like trees and rocks would be great. As would campsites. The Yeti temple was neat, but a similar and more generic cave entrance would be a lot more versatile. Festival tents and market stalls/troughs. Farm stuff- fencing, hay bales, maybe even some rows of crop. Town square fare- sign posts, job boards, town crier platforms or stages (in fact, an encounter with a traveling theater troupe would be fantastic!)
  5. After Bones V, I'd love to see Reaper branch out even more into terrain. They make great stuff!
  6. Definitely agreed about the terrain for Shadows of Ravenhome and Brinewind Extras. Really, all the terrain in general. As someone who's just stuck his feet into crafting some rough larger scale terrain (city walls, barricades, big blocks for a configurable tower, etc), having these smaller accent pieces will really up my game. @YronimosW Dungeon Dwellers was pretty neat! I may definitely had a big smile on my face when I pulled out that owlbear (even though I already have the Wizkids one and three 3D printed ones).
  7. Having just gotten my box recently, I've noticed there are a lot of minis that I wasn't particularly excited about in the Pledge Manager that really make an impression in person. I'm still working on the odyssey of assembling/gluing so I haven't seen half of the stuff yet anyway, but I've already noticed some minis that really stick out to me. Numbered for simplicity, but in no particular order: 1. Valfuryx I got all the dragons, but was easily most excited for Shav (and am impressed with her as well!). But Valfuryx was one I really just got to complete the set-
  8. I'm in pre-shipment, with estimated delivery date of Friday. Wave 5, US, with many of the problematic items (not the busts). Shipping email went out at about 10:30 central time.
  9. Man, I gotta say, these past few weeks have not been good for someone with my anxiety. Not to get too personal, but we put in an offer on a house in April and are still waiting. Our original closing date was in June, but things happened and it was moved back to a week ago. That obviously was delayed too, and now it's tomorrow- but it looks like it'll get delayed again (and to top it all off, the bank's communication on these delays has been absolutely abysmal, it's like I'm dealing with three toddlers in a trenchcoat). Between that and this Bones V massive delay... ma
  10. Wave 5 for me. I had Shav, rune wights, and dragonfolk. United States, no word yet.
  11. I wonder if the eventual driver of this crate's truck has any idea how highly anticipated his work is today, and how many people will be grateful on a safe and speedy delivery 🤣
  12. We've pretty much returned to normal here. There's some talk about going to a part time work from home situation permanently, but honestly I'm fine with it either way. I do think the mask mandate will and should probably return soon given the variants that have started to pop up (and we have had local cases of those now too), but I honestly kinda hated working from home.
  13. Been busy preparing to move soon, but we've had a few more sessions the past few weeks. Note that these sessions include some heavily adapted takes on the Divine Contention module, so be warned for potential spoilers. The players finished the Tome of Zikran interlude, and have returned to playing as their main characters who were on a boat en route to the sword coast, when they ran into some serpentine entanglements. They luckily made it to Candle Keep, though, where the Arch Magus informed them that the town of Elturel was in danger of being overrun, and that a
  14. Possible. Shame, I can't even regret getting that dragon- it's one of the pieces I'm looking most forward to out of the whole thing.
  15. Definitely possible, though it does seem like a ton of stuff isn't shipped yet.
