  1. Anything new hitting my FLGS would be nice. They had three or four gondolas of Reaper stock prior to the first Bones Kickstarter. These days it's a ragtag assortment over the same space. They tell me that the distrubors aren't getting anything from you guys. I know it's on your end because my FLGS can get me anything else I want but your products. They even tell me that folks can't get much by ordering straight from you. Start bringing your A game.

  2. Since I can't get TIE Avengers (in that scale) I can afford I'll just made do with those, lol.

     

    Speaking of which.... does anybody know anybody who does 3D printing? I have a ship I need made.

     

    Heat Sync Labs on Main Street in Downtown Mesa had facilities for 3D printing last I checked. I haven't been in while. Look them up on facebook.

  3. Correct, Inarah. I picked up the habit on my Hordes minis. It is most helpful on round bases, but also with the diagonal mount slotta bases where you can't tell which of two directions the mini is facing.

     

    I also use the Steel Sqwire spell area templates so the dot helps my players figure out where to place their cone effects.

  4. This mini was painted for my newest player who was playing a Bard of Persian-analog decent. The lute is from the musical instrument pack. I googled images of lutes and decided to go with a traditional alternating stain finish for the underside and my wife ( the family musician) convinced me to do the face as a modern sunburst finish (achieved with a wet-blending technique). I finished him in September before I went in for back surgery. (It's been a year and he is one of only two minis I have finished this year.)

     

    I am extremely happy with the lute and the rest of his his acoutrement. I have never done a "Persian" skin tone and I am not entirely happy with my first attempt. I also need to use a better camera, the photos never look like the real thing with my budget model.

  5. My tiles arrived on the 17th (my birthday). Joy. Missing two diagonal walls from the expansion, and another is warped but otherwise everthing is great. I start running my game again next weekend and now I can build immense, table-sized dungeons. They fit okay with the origianl sets from DF, but I am thinking about repainting the old ones to better match the Dwarvenite.

     

    Who would have thought we would be gaiming with PVC minis on recycled tire terrain?

  6. ...Eclipse Phase?

     

    I recently found the main rulebook used and picked it up. I liked the jump from cyberpunk to transhumanity so much I legally downloaded everything I could (for free, since it is under the Creative Commons License).

     

    I have only had it about a week and was wondering if anybody here has the opportunity to get into a long running campaign.

  7. English accents are easy for me.

    London does have a variety of accents simply because what is called London is a huge conglomeration of villages that grew into each other, each with their own local sound. Scotland Yard can pinpoint what neighborhood a Londoner is from by their accent. The closest we have to that in one city is New York, where there are local accents limited by burrough. It's sort of fascintating.

     

    I generally do the London Proper accent when I voice Sidhe in my Changeling games. It has very little in the way of deviation of phonetic sounds but it sounds more proper than the American Midwest Broadcast accent used by TV hosts and news anchors in our country.

  8. Either male part would be fine.

     

    What do you mean by "elven accent"? Something unusual like Deanna Troi's odd accent at the beginning of ST:TNG or the like?

     

    Plus, I'm in the Valley which might make things easier. I've always been interested in voice work. I've imitated accents since I was a child and I assume different voices for NPCs when I run games.

  9. I have most of those FASA metal minis sets from ebay auctions. I am missing from my collection; metal Cybermen, metal Daleks, Davros, and Turlough. I specify metal on those because I do have the FASA/Citadel boxed set of 20/20 Cybermen and Daleks. Not the same as the metal.

     

    I have spare K-9, Romana, Sgt. Benton, and Fourth Doctor. I might be persuaded...

  10. Normally I don't post this kind of thing, but here goes...

     

    Years ago, my wife's mother was injured in a car accident resulting in a fused ankle and a leg that is 1 1/4" shorter than the other. She had gotten a standard poodle named Karma to help as a mobility service dog from that point on. As Karma aged she had gotten another named Bear to take over her duties in that area. Bear passed away last October of acute kidney failure at only five years old. Just this past Saturday Karma had a stroke at the age of 14 and had to be humanely put to sleep. My mother-in-law, Linly, is now without a mobility service dog to help her out and this is not one of those cases where insurance or a charity organization helps out and she can not afford the cost acquiring or training the dog. There is a standard poodle in Oregon that she has profiled and talked to the owner via Skype that she has her heart set on. My wife, Robin, wants more than anything to make this happen.

     

    Robin has set up a contribution site for any kind friends or strangers to contribute to the cause. If you can help out it is appreciated, if you can't I understand. Either way, please pass this along to those you feel may be able to help.
