  1. Yes I do know that, that's why there is a "caution" note near the tentative release date in the Previews. But it gives me a good idea of what is coming next and I thought I'd share my findings on the board since there is unfortunately very few official updates on the main Reaper page. And late miniatures never bother me much, they will be ready when they will be ready. :)
  2. Yep, same here. I've been waiting for this one too, It will be perfect to represent the Cathezar in the Bastion of Broken Souls adventure.
  3. This is what I found in october's Previews (the comic shop's catalog): Scheduled to ship in November: CAV RPR 07012 Mitso Ta Regent RPR 07035 Polteirgest Tank (2) RPR 07061 Heavy Infantry, Light Mortars RPR 07062 Heavy Infantry, Heavy Mortars DARK HEAVEN RPR 02630 Frogmen (3) RPR 02631 Cockatrice RPR 02633 Vandorendra Female Demon RPR 02634 Well of Doom RPR 02635 Winged Tiger RPR 02637 Marcus Starsong Young Wizard LEGEND OF THE FIVE RINGS RPR 04401 Crab Clan Samurai I RPR 04402 Cran Crab Samurai II (might be a typo) RPR 04403 Crane Courtler RPR 04404 Ninja I RPR 04405 Ninja II RPR 04406 Shiba Tsukune RPR 04407 Aramoro RPR 04408 Mirimoto Taki WARLORD RPR 02632 Jahenna Vampire Seductress RPR 02636 Blacksting the Wyvern RPR 14033 Wraith Lord RPR 14034 Arganox Gladiator RPR 14035 Balthon Evil Priest RPR 14036 Halbarad Good Priest
  4. At least those two 'mechs kept their general shape and look, I'm still wondering what the heck happened to the Spider... †???
  5. Well said Nadin. I'm one of those people who used to play BattleTech (still do from time to time) and I had the oportunity to try MW and wasn't really "moved" by it. Oh it's fun I admit but it's not a game I would invest in, money or time wise. While the new storyline Mr. Stackpole and company created isn't ruining the universe for me it certainly is dull, a return to the pre 3025 era where technology is disapearing or rare isn't very apealing to me. We've been there already and frankly it was better the first time. I agree with you on the lack of Pilot advancement, the rare-collectible-can-you-catch'em-all gimick and especially on the no construction rules. Sorry if this was a bit out of topic, I'm going back in lurker mode now.
  6. Good question. I hope they'll be in their own line, that way it might avoid possible confusion at the shop where I buy my minis. Different packages will probably attract more attention too.
  7. Thanks for clearing some of that up Lord_Ironheart. After piecing together about ten different stories I was still a bit far from the real story. And I agree about your comments on WotC and WK's minis. Although a few from WotC weren't too bad.
  8. Necromancer Games, they are producing Adventure modules and source books using the D20 system. Here's the link if you want more informations: http://www.necromancergames.com
  9. A Cave Bear and a Winter Wolf? Excellent! And our own Hypnotoad? All I can say is: *BZZZZZZZZZZZ*
  10. Looking at my avatar I think I didn't exactly hit it on the nose.
  11. Fodder packs of uncommon races (ie something else than orcs and skeletons there's plenty of those anyway) would be an interesting idea. Here are some useful critters from D&D 3rd Ed I would find very useful (some names would need changing of course) : Bugbears, Formians, Goblins, Gnolls, Grimlocks, Hobgoblins, Kobolds, Kuo-toas, Locathahs, Mephits, Ogres, Sahuagins, Shadows, Troglodytes.
  12. I might already have mentioned it but my favorite sculptor is Denis Mize. I loved his Male/Female AD&D player characters to death (my wallet's death), his Elmore minis (Silver and Steel 1-3), the boxed Ravenloft, Menzobarranzan, Titan's of Terrors and *ahem* the Slave Auction, the amazing Beastmasters line and his other various Ral Partha minis. Some of his works for WotC wasn't too bad either, Redgar is amazing. I couldn't be happier now that he is with Reaper! :D
  13. Er.. believe it or not I actually knew that. †:p And I still believe they'd make great DM tools.
  14. Speaking of Hypnotoads, they would make interesting minis... or useful DM tools.
  15. Hahahah :laugh: Good advice! *takes notes*
  16. Hey Kelcore, Iced Earth's Alive in Athens is excellent for painting especially if you have a CD changer. :cool: I also leave the TV on for background noise, even soaps are tolerable when I get into my zen-painting mood.
  17. West Nile were-squirrel eh? Now I'll get this bloody halfling rogue! Er.. how does one infli...contract it? But back to the original question, I just bought the tiki golem and it does look like a squirrel, with the right lighting though.
  18. I'd paint the robe some kind of beige or sandy yellow with faded black. gold and grey for the different parts. I've been inspired by Morrowind's characters (PC-XBox game) lately, if you couldn't tell by the sugestion heh. I usually have a vague scheme idea when I buy a mini, I usually start having ideas when I pick one from my desk (and shelves and boxes and...). But this leaves me in danger of getting what I call color block, when I can't figure one or the last color on an almost finished mini. †
  19. Well if you miss those old Partha Paints check out Iron Wind Metals' paints: http://www.ironwindmetals.com/ You might be happy you did... though no Dunkel Braun yet. †???
  20. Thanks yet again Mengu. I saw the greens don't worry. :) Froschmeister: agreed. *roooooar* lstormhammer: Maybe you could find some of those old Battletech pilot minis Ral Partha made a couple of years ago on Ebay. If you don't have them already of course.
  21. Allo John! Fantastic work I must say, some of your 'mechs (CAVs?) have that Hercs/Cybrids look from the Cyberstorm/Earthsiege PC games, very cool. As a Battletech player (CLASSIC Battletech nowadays) I must admit I have used some of those CAVs minis to represent some home made machines or duplicates for lance-size or larger units. What can I say? I love 'em heh heh.
  22. Oh yuk I can see why you don't like them! Personally I never had any problems with those paints even with the sometime rough handling my minis get by other players. Maybe it's the way I use the paints, maybe I'm just lucky... or maybe it's the fact that screwing with the DM's paint jobs can be a health hazard to one's favorite character. I think I'll be extra careful with those paints next time I use them though. Thanks for the warning!
  23. I started using acrylics with Ral Partha paints (I really started with Testor's paints, ugh) and still uses them to this day but with the years I picked colors that interested me from almost every lines. I also buy paint from small craft stores, like DecoArt's Crafter's Acrylic (http://www.decoart.com/) and recently from Iron Wind Metals' paints (http://www.ironwindmetals.com/). I personally like Pro Paints, they have a nice variety and are easy to use. The containers are also way better than the new Citadel... er... things. BLECH indeed! † :laugh: (I hope I didn't break a forum rule by posting business links).
