  1. Awesome, thanks! Looks like I did cash in Sophie for something else - it's not on the list. All is well with the world. :)
  2. I saw in one of the recent Kickstarter updates that everybody should have received their Sophies by now except people in Canada. I'm pretty sure I ordered a Sophie, but I did make some last minute changes to my selections in the Reaper Pledge manager, and I may have cashed in Sophie for a dragon or something. Is there any way I can see what I chose? If I did order a Sophie and haven't received it, whom should I contact about it? Thanks!
  3. From the Kickstarter page: But I agree with your assessment in general. :)
  4. Well, if you're going to do THAT... No trip down miniature memory lane would be complete without a trip to The Lost Minis Wiki: http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Main_Page Or to DND Lead: http://www.dndlead.com I apologize in advance for the hours of your life you are about to lose.
  5. I'd love mine back, just without their original paint job. I'm no great shakes as a painter now, but the paint jobs I used to give minis back then… using Testor's enamels, a crappy brush, and nothing resembling patience. It's just downright painful what I did to those poor minis.
  6. Oh, those Minifigs figures were, really ugly, at least by today's standard. Heck, even by the standards of old Ral Partha minis. I know some of that had to do with the manufacturing process at the time (thick necks and really thick ankles), but when you look at those old ones, it drives home just how far minis have come in thirty years or so.
  7. Although the old school OD&D, D&D, and AD&D art was not as polished or consistent as what they use now, I must admit a preference for the old stuff. Erol Otus, Jeff Dee, Jim Rosluf, and others I can't pull from the mists of time at the moment. It's all been downhill since succubi started wearing bikinis, if you ask me.
  8. That bartender better hurry up with the drinks before Doc starts crying along with me.
  9. Man, this thread is making me nostalgic. And sad. At one point, I had an awful lot of the minis that have been posted in this thread, plus tons of other gaming stuff and at least 8 years worth of Dragon magazines. They suffered the worst of fates: sold at a garage sale when my parents moved to Florida. Well, except Eldritch Wizardry. i still have that. My mom was too embarrassed to put the book with the nekkid lady on the front out.
  10. Man, with all these recent posts, I feel like I got out really cheap at $250. I don't even know what I'm getting for that. I just bumped my pledge to what I felt I could spare whilst still staying married, figure I'll make the decision about what I actually get when the survey comes out. Or let my kids.
  11. Well, that was disappointing. Only $3.5 million dollars?! Man, we barely scraped past the minimum to get this thing funded. Oh, wait… hold on… just a second… I might be off by a few… …orders of magnitude. In all seriousness, congrats and thanks to the busy beavers at Reaper who suffered through the last month. So… Is it March yet?
  12. So… just two hours until… …Bryan gets to get some sleep.
  13. ecdysiasts? The only reason I can imagine a goblin even knowing this word is that there are… oh god… goblin strippers? I really hope that's not a stretch goal.
  14. Okay, yikes. Way to pull me out of my comfortable numbness, there Reaper. Big 'uns for free? Let's see, I've already fainted and swooned. I'll have to go with "squeee!" this time.
  15. I just threw a bunch of extra money on my pledge and I don't even know what I'm getting with it. I figure I can find something. My son's been refreshing the Kickstarter page a few times an hour for the last few days, so I'm pretty sure he'll be able to spend any extra money I haven't allocated. He's really wanting that new dracolich, which I hadn't originally planned on getting, so I'm sure some of it will go toward that. Heck, I haven't even been paying that close attention to the reveals the last day or two. Not that they aren't nice (they are!), I'm just kinda numb at this point. So man
  16. Well, not to be the voice of reason, but I never figured we'd break a million in the early days of this, so the Reaper folks could add a 28mm happy meal box to vampire and I'd still be thrilled about it. As it is, there are probably more minis coming than I'll be able to paint in my lifetime, so just can't find the energy to be "disappointed". I am a little surprised the dungeon decorations weren't earlier, but I'm glad to have them either way.
  17. There are absolutely good ideas in 4th Edition, but it's also a bit of a convoluted mess in parts. Call me an old fart, but honestly, I don't see your #1 as a good thing. I know a lot of people do, but fighters shouldn't be given spells in disguise. They're fighters. They're supposed to hit things with a weapon until that thing bleeds and dies. That's why the exist. It's what they're for. They get to deal and take a lot of damage right off the start in exchange for less options and a more linear ability progression. They're the option for players who favor the short-game. That's not a bad
  18. Oh, gosh no. We played everything that came out, but D&D was our first love and we kept returning to it.
  19. Yeah… that was second edition for me. My group steadfastly refused to even consider second edition well into the nineties. Heck, a few of us got upset even before second edition when everything started getting more polished and generic-looking covers. We liked those old single-color module covers by Erol Otus and Jeff Dee, dangit! It's a universal role-playing constant that you have to hate the first new release after the one you started with.
  20. Twas brillig and the slithy Bones did gimble and gyre in the wabe.
  21. Well, I was about to respond, and I got the notice that we did, in fact, hit #4.... Not that I can sleep either way....
  22. Man, this is wrenching. It's 11:30 on the East coast and I'm wondering if we're going to hit yet one more stretch goal before midnight. It's less than $2k....
  23. Dammit. Is it worth risking a divorce to up my pledge again? Maybe.
