    Black 3.0

    i'm tempted to see what it looks like on a mini. please post your experiments when the paint arrives :)
  2. assuming pathfinder 1. I'm calculating your APL as 5 (30 levels /7 = 4.2, round to 4, +1 for number of characters = 5). a young efreeti coming back from a party who's a little drunk/hungover. CR8 -1 young = CR7. Add sickened to reign it in a little bit more (i've seen this enough in PFS). So, still a challenging encounter, just not as dangerous as it could be. Solidly Hard-Epic fight. Drop the wishes from it as well (last sober memory was being summoned by a mortal who "wished" to drink with them until they passed out). drop the scorching ray as well - that's a one shot 3/4 of my hit points thing. drop any weapons as well. those are probably on a sidewalk somewhere else in CoB. Cranky, annoyed, not feeling well flyer with reach. nice thematic CoB encounter. and there's a bones black efreeti now too :) reskin a winter wolf with fire and that's a CR5 encounter by itself. two of them would be CR8 and too much. 3 lava child for a sturdier CR6 encounter.
  3. Probably more as we get closer to kick off date. I'd wager that cloud giantess and many of the bones black would be in there. that's speculation though.

    Citadel Contrast paints

    I've run some tests with this. The skeleton brown works well on bones skellies (primed w/ contrast primer). I've had adhesion problems with the orc skin green on bones orcs (also primed w/ contrast primer) and the wood brown on a random 3d printed dryad. On the orcs, the paint draws back from flat areas maybe a bit too well leaving some patches that need retouching. The 3d dryad (also also primed) sort of worked inverted with the darkest parts being the highlights. But then, weldbold started melting that model, so I'm writing that one off as a fluke. I'm still experimenting, but right now I think it'll be useful for bulk painting of minis I don't want to spend much effort on.

    Spray Varnish

    Army painter is great. I've started trying Valejo's new (to my FLGS) sealers. The gloss and matte are very nice, but the matte needed two coats to get the matte finish I was after in a couple cases. The fumes are terrible and it'll be stinking for a good 36hrs or so before they're safe to bring inside. All in all, it's good stuff, but I'll likely fall back to Army Painter. I did have a problem with it reacting with the wizkids gelatenous cubes though. so, beware of that. I've not had similar problem with bones. Testor's spray finishes are really good; they're more difficult for me to get my hands on in my particular market. ie: not stocked locally.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    For the first time in a long time, I don't have anything very late on kickstarter. I've received Scion 2, and the Infinity RPG (just about 3yrs late) this week. Well, aside from Starfinder minis, but I've mentally closed that down even if ND isn't saying they're dead yet. My open projects are: Expanse RPG (Jan 2019) - pdfs have been sent. physical copies immanent (so i've been led to believe) Your Best Game Ever! (Sep 2019) JourneyQuest 3.5 (Jun 2019) - waiting on phyiscal media, but digital delivered Tsuro: Phoenix Rising (Sep 2019) Life of the Party Vol 3 (Nov 2019) heading to the printers Dry Erase Game Tokens (Jul 2019) I've a pdf pledge in for Odyssey of the Dragonlords, but that closes tomorrow.
  8. KS4 regret #1: i should have pledges for a second set of the dungeon tiles.

    New Site conversation

    I'm getting prices in GB pounds as well. I imagine it's just the lineage of the site showing through. I expect it'll be fixed shortly.
  10. I received my rewards today. I've just finished inventory. Only one item missing (emailed help already). I had the odd paint label (no biggie) and had an extra 315 but missing 314. I'm not going to sweat the aliens though. Given the volume of the shipment (25#) I think that's a damn good success rate.
  11. i think the postman decided not to deliver mine today. they just left a note to pick a package up at the post office after 9am tomorrow. though it could be something else still.

    Notre Dame Cathedral is Burning T_T

    I count myself fortunate to have been able to visit it beforehand. This is a tremendous loss of history and culture. The spire falling was terrible to watch.

    Metal Bases?

    I recall those as well. After some google-fu to statisfy my curiousity, the sku for these bases are early in the 74000 series. 74006 was the sku for SMOOTH BASE SQUARE 1 INCH 4 IN PACK according to my pdf of casketworks 19. 74007 was a 1x2in base with a similar recess. 74005 and 74005 if hex is more your flavor. Those are long discontinued though. I came across a listing on ebay.ca, but they're looking very, very scarce.

    1 inch dry erase rpg tokens

    backed. i've made some of thing personally, but the price is worth the labor savings and materials.
  15. That's a good recommendation and one I've thought of already. But underbed is already occupied as are most areas in the closet. I think they might live in their shipping box in the storage room for a bit until I can wrap my head around the volumes involved.
