    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I 100% support this. ALL THE LEGS OF THE RAINBOW!
  2. Red is right. Have all the ingredients, and follow the directions. Some recipes are easier than others, but in general baking is a game of knowing a recipe and following it. You can tweak and modify them later. I'd start by making drop-type cookies (like chocolate chip) or brownies. Almost all bags of chocolate chips have the recipe for cookies on the back, and they're good recipes. Tasty and easy to follow. Easier if you have an electric hand-mixer, but they can be done manually with a big wooden spoon too.
  3. Me and some groupmates are going to have beer for a "Demise of Western Society" shindig during the Canadian election stuff. Black humor, yes. Sir Cyr and I started these shindigs in 2016 with a series of ehh... major world events and a lot of pessimism. May as well continue with good company, regardless of outcome. Good company and brews are a fun combo.
  4. Took the group until the end of last night's session, but they did discover that the illusionist guy is not 100% bad, and that he is in fact not wearing a suit - he's wearing pajamas. He dragged them into joining the mob. They'll meet the favored soul weaver next time.
  5. Reaper character busts done in Bones Black material I suspect would do very well, and fill another niche: practice busts. They'd be able to hit a price point where folks would be willing to try painting a bust for the first time, and not be scared away by skill worries vs price tag. A good resin bust can be expensive. Bones Black isn't going to be as finely detailed, but it is good enough to get the ideas of painting larger surfaces down, and could be a quarter of the price of a fancy one - or less.
  6. And one from 3dartdigital, and there will be one from Kimera. Succubi are popular. Even with those options, we need a Sophie! She'd fit the "cheerful" succubus niche!

    "The Golden Cheese is Ours!" Mousling Diorama

    This is really adorable! You do wonders with the mouselings! I have to admit, I didn't see the cheese as cheese at first. A non-metallic bright yellow I think would get the idea across better, and make the cheesiness more obvious.

    Maybe. I am happy for all this, but I also am going "wow, I have a lot from Bones IV, and my interests are less aligned right now". Don't get me wrong, Bones V has a lot of stuff I'd like. More of it is hitting a note of "that would be useful for a game" than "I am inspired to paint that" though. Except maybe the dragons. I really like high detail painting, and Bones material just isn't the best for that. It has a different purpose, and that's good. But.... I really want to sling cash at some high detail resin figures. So I think what I'm in for, at least initially with B5, is "useful" stuff. I'll add more in the PM later.

    I wish sirens were already out. I intend to have a siren encounter at some point in the upcoming future. I need to make sure that our ranger bangs a walrus. He's the only one who has been interested in getting lucky. Obvious target to mess with - sirens lure him to the walrus ladies... the walruses get funky.

    Mixing Inks with Acrylic Paints?

    I'd recommend trying it if you're interested. Vallejo inks are pretty prevalent in US game stores with the other minis paints. Can snag a few colors to see what you think. This is to say - I support experimenting and learning as you go.

    I would like an opaque one so that it looks better unpainted in a swimming pool. If I get a boat, I'm going to figure out how to mod it so it can float. I want my pool & margaritas D&D session!

    I just don't like how prepainted ones look. I have far too few painted due to time/energy constraints. But I slap unpainted on the table gladly. Prepainted seems cheesy to me. Unpainted leaves more freedom for imagination, I think.

    This all depends on the shape of those darn crystals, not the color! But yeah. Make them clear if they're going to be translucent material. Think they'd sell more, since then it could be whatever a person is looking for?

    Clear does indeed gives tons more options. And PFFT. Prepaints are for chumps! Unpainted or me/party/friend-painted!
  15. @Chaoswolf is evil, of course. HE STOLE THE RUM. I'm realizing that the illusionist that I rolled up has almost nothing for damage; he's just about all tricks. I think Melf's Acid Arrow is his only standard damage spell. He has some that do wisdom and strength damage due to messing with the subject's head. And he has various debuffs and distractions. Damage? Melf's. Phantasmal Killer and Nightmare are the closest he gets to really scary. Shadow Conjuration & Evocation are mimicry spells, weaker than usual, but potentially fun. Or he can summon a shadow quarterstaff, make someone imagine they're falling so they hug the floor for dear life, and then he can whack them with a shadow. But lame whacks, because he's a wizard. Hah. Yep - he's there for the lawls.
