  1. I am going to put my two cents in for a $100 pledge that allows you to choose somewhere between 30 and 35 models (Reaper's decision on size) worth of Bones models. But, this does not mean it is actually 30 models. It could be be less models. How? I am glad you asked! I have worked up a way for this idea to work beautifully. A standard base size model is worth 1 model. A large base size model is worth 1.5 models. A giant base size model is worth 2 models. So, you can choose any combination of models you want, so long as they add up to the 30 models (or whatever number Reaper chooses). Now, this will entail a LOT of bookkeeping on Reaper's part, but they would get customers like myself to pledge that would not normally do so. I did not pledge Bones I, and if Bones II is similar to Bones I, then I will most likely not pledge that one either. A random grab bag of assorted minis, metal or plastic, is not my thing. Wild Bill
  2. I have started my collection of the Dark Horse reprints of the Savage Sword of Conan stories. They were originally produced by Marvel, starting in 1974 I believe. There are currently like 14 volumes as the Savage Sword of Conan magazine ran for 20ish years. Some day I will own all of the volumes. They are way cheaper to purchase than trying to track down 20 years of Savage Swords!!
  3. At one point in time, I owned every single card Steve Jackson had produced for Munchkin, even the ones that were given to store owners only. But, we grew bored with the game as the years wore on and so I sold all of them. We would rather play a cool board game instead.
  4. It definitely looks really cool, but I have pledged to so much crap lately, and I just recently changed jobs, so I better watch my budget for a few weeks.
  5. I know that Texas has no state income tax; however, don't think that you will skate scott free. From what I have heard about property taxes, they can be really nasty. That can affect how much house you can buy or in what neighborhood. And I am sure the sales tax and what not could be fairly high as well. Despite that, Texas is being very proactive in trying to convince businesses to relocate there. Now is a good opportunity to move out of the darkness and back into the light.
  6. I remember the first time I heard the song "Black Sabbath" all of those years ago. It made the hair raise up on my hairs it freaked me out. It still does that some, but I think it is more of a memory thing. Still, that album was just awesome all of the way around!
  7. Shad wonders if he should burn the bugbear leader as a warning to other bugbears, but decides against it. He is sure the stench would be worse than Chara's.
  8. This is my favorite Blue Oyster Cult song:
  9. I want to thank any of you that supported my friend David. His KS campaign was a successful one! He raised his $20k! YAY!
  10. I was never a fan of the band, but I hope they do well.
  11. I apologize about taking so long to respond! Work has been crazy busy for me this week and I have barely been on my computer in the evening. I'm just too tired. Anyways, any of you that helped my buddy out I really appreciate it.
  12. For all you metal fans out there, and I know you exist , I am introducing you to the band Orissa, fronted by a good friend of mine, David Dodini. Currently, he plays all of the instruments you hear (and sings!) excluding the drums. But rest assured! David has stated that he will find high quality musicians to help him out when he is able to go tour. Here is the link to the KS page for Orissa: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/198226983/orissa-recording-our-first-full-length-album-resur Be sure and check out Update 3. David created this hilarious video called "Rock Band Sues Satan!" David has also had an interview with Sound Crave magazine further talking about his band and the KS campaign: http://soundcravemagazine.com/david-from-orissa-interviewed/ Even if you are not a fan of metal, I am sure that you know someone who is. Please help Wild Bill's friend David out by passing this along to someone you know so that he can get his album made. I will end this with a quote from the interview: "Progression, Brilliance and Passion are the key elements in Orissa's music. It made me appreciate what well written music sounds like. It's more than metal. I hope the world is ready for this!" - Keith Lovett, Soundcrave Magazine \m/ Wild Bill
  13. Rush = #1. Honestly, I didn't know Triumph were Canadian. My bad!
  14.

  15. I managed to see Steppenwolf in concert during their 30th Anniversary Tour way back in 1996. I went with my parents and a friend of mine. We got 5th row dead center! It was awesome. I still have the concert tshirt. For those of you that like Canadian rock bands, this is the second best rock band to ever come out of the Great White North. If I have to say who the greatest is...well...I guess I'll have to smack you around some at the next ReaperCon. April Wine is a great guitar rock band with not one, not two, but THREE guitar players! Yes sir! Awesomeness cubed!! \m/
  16. For those of you who like to take a trip now and then : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgyVSYE1ZzY
  17. I never realized just how long Slow Ride was until I was trying to play it on Guiter Hero 3 or something while drunk. That took a whole lot more effort than I wanted! Of course, one of the next songs I chose to play was one that was ridiculously fast:
  18. Magical thing with dreams?
  19. Ok SamuriJack. I am pretty sure you put this up here just to goad me into pledging this KS. I hate you! Now I am out more money for more Dwarves!
  20. Somewhere in this thread, someone mentioned that there are 18 factions. While there may be technically that many factions, there are quite a few that are essentially duplicates. Yeah yeah yeah. They have different units blah blah blah. But, there is a Dwarf faction in the Core Rulebook and a Dwarf faction in the Savage North Rulebook. You could create KS projects based upon natural pairings this way. I feel that if you make the KS too broad in scope, then it will be a big grab bag of random models that you can not make an army with, as well as offering a ton of models that I wouldn't want to own. The only alternative would be to essentially offer evreything and have TONS of pledge levels where you can essentially get each faction for the same price. Then offer pledge levels where you can order multiple factions at a discount. However, I feel this would be incredibly lengthy and very time consuming to manage. I wouldn't want to do it.
  21. I am not on Facebook, so I can't see your page. I assume that page details out where you are playing?
  22. Excuse me, but bragging about receiving your minis early is not cool, man. NOT COOL!! Do NOT make me come over there and take those minis away from you!
  23. This time, Shad decides it is time to end this madness!! He will perform a simultaneous strike to the Leader's midsection with both his torch and his sword! Sword d20 = 10 + 1 = 11 d6 = 3 Not that it frickin' matters!! Torch d20 = 6 Ok, I am going to go curl up in a corner and cry now.
  24. I know, right?!? I was all like "SHOCK! GASP!"!! LOL!!
  25. Warwick usually beats me with a well placed crossbowman. Just one, mind you. One annoying little crossbowman.
