    Help Pendraken Forums ID this mini

    Whatever that is, I love it. The metal looks really old. That looks like something from the early '80s, maybe? The bases make these look less like gaming minis and more like those weird, hard semi-pewter things you find in gift shops.

    Bone 4 Nyarlahotep

    It looks strangely delicious.

    What color are lips?

    A good, easy rule of thumb for a figure not wearing makeup is to mix a soft, rosy color into whatever you are using as the skin base. Mix up with whatever you were using to highlight the skin to highlight the lips as well, always keeping it a bit rosy. You're going for a subtle difference from the skin of the face.

    poorly made miniature assembly

    As the Dr. said, the medium (thus the fix) depends on the size of the gap. Any chance you can share a pic of the offending pieces? I don't think anybody will get into any trouble over this.

    Finial/Topper/Tombstone Finial/Skull Thing NLA?

    Yeah, there's a metal version and I have a few I have purchased online elsewhere. Atomic Empire, for instance, still has some in stock. I am sure I remember them on the Reaper site (that's why I went looking for them online on other sites), but I can't find them now.
  6. Hi all, sorry if this has been discussed. I did search the forums for anything relevant, but couldn't find anything. Does anybody know what happened to the Tombstone Finial, aka Tombstone Topper, etc? The little skull caps that go on top of the graveyard posts? I think it was sku 03855. I've searched and searched the catalog for all manner of search terms and can't find them. Maybe the name or the sku changed? Thanks!
  7. Just to play devil's advocate, much of the time spent or even delays in, receiving rewards, can be caused by supplier or manufacturer issues, rather than necessarily being a money issue or a delay on the part of the creators themselves. It's probably not reasonable to ask a small creator to remain idle and do nothing while he is waiting for a publisher or caster to finish something. I would say it really does depend on the creator and their level of communication.

    Lyanna Mormont miniature?

    Another instance where the Boneyard would have come in handy. The paige from this model might do nicely.

    Cleric of Urgathoa (60088) - multiple pieces?

    The unpainted pic here on the Reaper site shows a pretty clear open socket, even with the scythe sticking out of it.

    Dullcoat not dulling?

    There are various reasons this might be happening. It's cold and moist in many locations right now. Maybe that is affecting the spray. But whatever the cause, one thing I do when I get a similar effect, it to brush on some Vallejo Matte Medium. Not Matte sealer, though that might also do the trick. But I find when all else fails, the Matte Medium takes the shine off. It isn't meant to be a sealer, but since you already have something on there, it should be fine. It dries clear.

    Writing a Campaign Plot

    I do a lot of weird fiction in our games, and specifically have run a long-time game set in Silent Hill, with Mythos fragments thrown in. I find that it's both scarier and less convoluted when I do not overthink these things, or stick too specifically to canon as provided in rule/sourcebooks, etc. Continuity is always important to some degree, but keep in mind that Lovecraft himself considered all of this stuff to be best when re-interpreted, scattershot, inconsistent, etc. It adds to the mystery and the chaos of the thing. All that said, the first thing that comes to my mind, is that Mythos creatures tend to dream and to think in the abstract, and any consideration they might have in passing for us mere mortals can skew our reality or our perception of it pretty severely. I think you could just get away with the backstory character somehow popping up momentarily and incidentally on Nyarlathotep's radar. Any intense emotions, lingering guilt, whatever the character is subconsciously experiencing, would be enough for proximity to an Eldritch being to propel him (and companions) to the other plane, etc. In our games, it is generally understood that the action is mostly taking place in a demiplane of the characters' unconscious design, populated with clues and reminders of whatever they are trying to repress. Simple proximity to the power that enables this shift, is enough. It's like not knowing you are psychic, until you come within range of a powerful battery, at which point your demons are activated against your will.

    US President Miniatures

    1898 Miniatures has a Rough Rider Teddy Roosevelt. Gringo 40s has two of them (one is mounted). Black Tree made a Lincoln in an old Dr. Who line. Ainsty Castings did a Vampire Hunter Lincoln. Perry Miniatures had a Lincoln. I seem to remember a Grant in an old set somewhere... You just have to do a search for these things. They are out there. Best bet is to search specifically for a President by name, and include "28mm" and "miniature" in your searches.

    But was it on fire? That might do something.
