  1. Nice sculpt! Do you have a portfolio, website, Thingiverse account etc.? I'd be interested in seeing more of your work!
  2. Does the Naughty or Nice offer stack with Ametrine? In other words, a $65 order gets both the Christmas Sampler and a copy of Ametrine? Thanks!
  3. MOSSBEARD!!! I love these types of Bones minis: too expensive to do in metal, but completely affordable in plastic, plus it's the type of mini where details won't suffer from the softer style plastic! Plus, it's a great-looking mini on top of that! I'm seriously thinking of getting two of him!
  4. Just saw the Nagendra reveal. Warlord may be a dead game, but it's cool to see Taltos and its inhabitants getting as much love as they have over the course of all four kickstarters. It's a shame that Bones minis weren't around when Warlord was more popular; the price point for getting an army together might have given it a real shot at gaining a stronger following.
  5. Hopefully, many people who had never even heard of a froghemoth prior to Bones 3 realized that they did in fact actually need one the moment they saw the reveal.
  6. Any official word yet (or at least strong rumors) about a Ma'al Drakar-sized not-Bahamut? Bones 2 and 3 gave me pretty much everything I was personally hoping for in terms of insanely huge miniatures (Khanjira in 2, Ma'al in 3), but since we're doing a fourth one, I figured I'd ask nicely for a colossal, good-aligned dragon god this time around.
  7. Nice starting selection of minis and stretch goals so far! The new fire giant is my favorite out of everything that's been revealed. More giants, please! Also, sorry if it's been asked already (I don't have time to read through 40+ pages in this thread), but any chance we'll see mini versions of Mr. Bones' gaming buddies? I don't normally go in for chibi stuff, but those would appeal to me since I'm already familiar with the normal versions.
  8. Do we have a link? Tried searching but couldn't find one.
  9. Bones 4 is next month, but I'm still working through my backlog from Bones 2, lol. Here's my version of Narthrax, my favorite dragon from that KS. This was a really fun mini to paint. More pics and a detailed WIP over at my blog (link down in my sig).
  10. It's based on a 60mm from Reaper. I'm pretty sure it's the "Display" one and not the "Gaming" one. (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/60mm/latest/74031 Family shot, lol. Yeah, I always felt like the iron golem from Bones I (which is where the other three are from) was too small. Too small for a D&D iron golem, anyway. Glad to have an iron golem of truly epic proportions now!
  11. Some pics of my recently completed iron golem.
  12. 3D Hubs is another website to check out. Basically, if you have things you want printed, you contract with people who are local to you, have them print the items, then arrange pickup or shipping. Are you looking to print things you've designed, things you've found on sites like Thingiverse, files from various Kickstarters?
  13. This sounds awesome, can't wait to see more! I'll try to remember to check this thread now and then, but will there be announcements on the front page and Facebook when the book is ready?
  14. Well, it's certainly not very portable, lol. Goes to check weight using postage scale Just under 29 pounds with the minis.
  15. Thanks so much, vegascat! Bones models would make this much more affordable, thanks for bringing that up. Cost-wise, the minis were actually more expensive than the molds and the materials used to make the board! Yeah, my original desire was to paint the minis like actual gaming minis, but I know my limits and I knew that I needed to keep it simple if I wanted to actually see it finished. You're correct, even in a classic black and white chess color scheme, it still takes a while to clean, base, prime, and drybrush 32 models!
  16. The castles/rooks are also Bruce Hirst's designs and made using the blocks. Thanks for checking out the blog! Not sure why the pics aren't showing up. Do you have any filters active or anything like that? Maybe try a different browser?
  17. I made it using Hirst Arts molds. If you're not familiar with them, you should definitely check them out (I don't want to violate board rules about external links; just do a Google search and you'll find the web site). It's a similar concept as Legos, except that you cast all of the bricks using high-quality rubber molds.
  18. Hey, guys! Here are some pics of the Hirst Arts Gothic Chess set that I made using Warlord minis for the pieces. More details and pics over at my blog (check my sig).
  19. Thanks for the comments, guys! Part 2 is available on my blog now. https://gamermulticlass.wordpress.com/2016/12/11/six-degrees-frank-herbert-and-wow-part-2/
  20. Would you believe that I have never played World of Warcraft either? These days, I'm much more of an observer and analyst than a practitioner when it comes to many aspects of gaming (both the tabletop and electronic varieties), but hopefully my lack of first-hand experience with the source material doesn't damage my credibility with the path that I'm trying to lay out. I honestly don't think it does since I'm speaking more broadly about certain aspects of history than I am critiquing the finer points of any particular work. I've heard that anecdote before about the glossary sheet being handed out to people as they entered the theater. That's pretty crazy! Understandable given the sheer amount of terminology that Herbert created, but, like you pointed out, probably not a good sign that the movie would be comprehensible to people who weren't familiar with the book. Or, in my case, familiar with the computer games.
  21. Wow, good catch, TGP. Thanks for that. No, it wasn't auto-correct, just my own failure to catch it even after re-reading it a hundred times before posting.
  22. Hey, guys! I wrote an essay on the relationship between Dune (the novel eventual series by Frank Herbert) and World of Warcraft. It was an idea that I had in my head that was going to bug me until I wrote about it. It was fun to write about, but the pool of people that would be familiar with both Dune and WoW (and RTS games, for that matter) is probably kind of small, but I figured I probably have a better chance of finding people here than most other places. Anyway, hope you check it out. Positive and negative feedback is appreciated! https://gamermulticlass.wordpress.com/2016/12/09/six-degrees-frank-herbert-and-wow-part-1/
  23. So sorry for the loss of your friend, Bryan. I didn't know him, but it sounds like the world is worse off for his passing.
