  1. Given that I already carry a bag of books, a figure case or two, a bag with food or snacks, and a purse, adding an extra box doesn't sound like much fun for me. Ditto setting a large figure on the table for players to play with for 30 minutes before the game starts. Maybe if I had the luxury of being GM at home... but I don't.
  2. For game play something that is about fist sized, or takes up ~4 hexes/squares on the game map is usually enough. Anything more is a pain to transport and difficult to surprise players with.

    Secret Weapon Swag Bag O Crap

    Well, you can see by the photos how many pieces there were. 30-50 ish in my orders, depending on how big stuff was. They fill a quart size zip bag, and you get whatever fits. Could be several large bases and plinths, could be a bunch of 20mm bases.

    Secret Weapon Swag Bag O Crap

    I have bought a couple and am getting close to needing another. They are extremely random. You get anything from any of their lines of bases, in all sizes. One bag had test pieces from their dungeon terrain KS. You'll get tank bits, objective markers, display plinths. Anything they make in resin that didn't turn out perfect. It will have bubbles, or be slightly warped. A lot of it is easy to fix with putty or a little heat. If you paint/play with a variety of genres and are looking for a deal and not something specific, get one. If I can find the photos I took a few years back, I'll post them. Here's the first of 3

    Bombshell's Mi-Sher and Eureka Chinese Pirates

    Mi-sher looks fantastic. I love how you interpreted her robes. I have not seen many painted versions of her. She is one of my all time favorite sculpts, since she reminds me so much of a MMO character I played for a good ten years. I have not finished painting either of the two copies I own. Your backgrounds for photos are great, as always. So evocative with just a few pieces of terrain. :)
  6. I think "Liners" is what you're looking for. Brown Liner is often used as a primer coat with Bones and many seem to prefer it to primer. I've used that and Sepia with success. Use it straight out of the bottle.

    GURPS adventures ? worldbuilding

    How about: they track the young man to the next village where he has run off and married a girl there, leaving the party with the question of what happened to the poor village girl? (She was kidnapped by evil cultists, of course, and will be sacrificed tonight if they can't save her.)
  8. They came! Such a big box, usually my KS rewards come in baggies inside a bubble envelope. The cat is not impressed. Apparently I pledged for All the Things.
  9. Aladdin was fun. I have not seen the previous animated version, so can't compare. It was pretty much what I expected from the previews, except it was a musical. Of course it was, it's Disney. Will Smith was Will Smith, and the other actors played their parts reasonably well. The story moved along at a good pace and there was lots of action, but I noticed the younger kids in the audience were not paying attention after the first hour. May be a better movie for them as a home video.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    Lost Kingdom Miniatures: Cuetzpal Empire

    And they have arrived! I am excited to play with these. The small box on top has coins, skulls, etc.
  12. I got a shipping notice yesterday. :)
  13. Just back from Dark Phoenix. It was much better than I expected, based on comments and reviews I'd seen. We wanted to see Aladdin but it was sold out. (I forgot Tuesday is $5 night). As an action movie maybe it was not great, but as a personal drama it was good. I usually think most movies could be 30 minutes shorter, but this one could have benefited from more time spent in the dramatic scenes, more exposition, and more tension building up to the final scenes. There were some other nit-picks, but we can discuss them over coffee some time. :)

    [Game Mastering] Keep on the Borderlands & Beyond

    I started with the 1981 boxed set that had KotB in it. I don't think we got very far with it as we preferred to make up our own dungeons using the DMs Guide I bought with my birthday money. And I think that was the last time I paid for anything related to the game. It was just so much more fun to make it up myself. I looked at modules in bookstores, but they cost money, you know. Something I was rather short of at that age. We briefly ran it here on the forum as a play by post. I subbed as GM for a bit near the end. Turned the keep into a hideout for bandits. Or maybe it was already, don't remember.
  15. Retinopathy. And my hands used to work much better. It's hard to be enthused when you know you can't physically improve.
  16. I have never entirely given it up, but taken months-long breaks from time to time. Anything from illness, to other hobbies, to complete apathy over the figures. After collecting and painting for 30+ years you start seeing too many similar figures, often from artists who've been in the industry for 40+ years. Having a game group who enjoys using figures and needs new ones from time to time has really helped.

    18036 Reaper Pro Paint "Bloodstone"

    Had that olive sample, too. Mine finally kicked it a year or two ago. It was an awesome base color for grassy ground. And walnut brown. The MSP version just isn't the same. I have a few pots left that might be usable, but I think most have solidified or separated beyond saving.

    18036 Reaper Pro Paint "Bloodstone"

    Ah, that was an old favorite. Mine has long since dried up though.
  19. Looking good. I find the bones statues need a metal base to help keep them from toppling.
  20. Certain to strike fear into the hearts of even the sturdiest heroes. Good job!

    Cyrine - Zombicide

    Pretty cool spellcaster figure, and nice paint job.
  22. "Hi Everyone, It has been quite a while since I posted an update about any of Dark Fable Miniatures upcoming projects. Unfortunately, I became very ill back in January and was diagnosed with cancer. Since that time everything pretty much ground to a halt while I have been receiving chemotherapy treatment. Slowly but surely I have started to recover and gain my strength back and now feel ready to launch a Kickstarter project soon. Well over a year ago Dark Fable purchased the rights and moulds to a number of lines from Otherworld miniatures, including the Evil Cultists. We wanted to rerelease these excellent miniatures and have some new moulds made for them to produce some really nice crisp clean castings. We also asked the original sculptor of these miniatures, Kev Adams, to make some new additions to the Evil Cultist line. These new sets have all been completed and will soon be sent to the mould maker. I wanted to give everyone who supported our last kickstarter a heads up before we launch Evil Cultist project - although I do not have an exact date yet it will probably be in a week or so. If you have any questions please message me - Thank you! Mike"
  23. There's a facebook trading group. You'll have to search for it, I'm not a member and didn't note the exact name and address, only the existence of it.
