  1. Just a few pics of the tabletop setup I put together for the first scenario of Rangers of ShadowDeep.


    I wanted to play through the rules to get a feel for them. Because of that I just put a sample party together unpainted. Not sure if I’ll be keeping using them going forward.


    Play took longer than expected. I’m going to need to read through some rule sections again.


    Overall I quite enjoyed it.

    Finally got our big elf media shelf put together!



    There’s room for more movies or games. And there will be even more room if we can convert more of our collection to blu rays.

    I’m sure you probably already have, but don’t forget to secure the safety straps from the back of the unit to the wall.

    Don't want any tipping accidents.

    I didn’t have my beholder handy for a comparison but I’m pretty sure the new zombie beholder is noticeably smaller.

    Found it and wanted to post a comparison for those who might want to order the zombie version online without the chance to see one in person.




    As you can see there’s a noticeable difference in the sizes and even in the styles of the two beholders.


    The zombie version doesn’t come with the transparent eye cover but it does include extra tentacles with spell effects.


    For $5  the zombie version isn’t a bad deal,  but isn’t as impressive as the original.

  4. Was out buying essentials yesterday and figured I’d stop at my FLGS not really thinking they’d be open.



    Dire Wolf is huge!



    Crocodile seems a bit on the small side.



    And I was right about the raptors.

    Even though they’re smaller the Wizkids ones are nicer sculpts.CB0F5E36-EFE9-43D6-8ED1-D59A3590BC17.thumb.jpeg.1f823dff3fcb5e36529d9e38f194407e.jpeg

    Also received the minis from North Star that I ordered for use in my Shadow Deep game: All three minis sculpted by Bobby Jackson.

    Can I ask how did you get them? Really want to get me some, and am a bit bewildered by the lack of communications on these. 

    From what I recall on a past ReaperLive show, it was the cardboard store displayers that were the hold up.


    I believe Reaper was big into wanting the dice sets to be available at retailers the same time as online.

  6. Today I received the minis I won on the Feb27th episode of ReaperLive.

    They were the Living Statue “stone” and “metal” Bones Black minis.


    I was a bit disappointed at how badly bent the spears were and how the dozen or so parts making up the two minis in each package are just banging around loose in the blister.

    I’ve received a few Bones Black minis that were packed with a shape fitting plastic insert which I had thought all the Bones Black minis were supposed to be packaged with.



    Have to say the Wizkids packaging makes their minis look like a quality product. 

    Whether they are or not is another issue.

    Just a heads up found a ebay seller that has Beholder's for 10 bucks + shipping. I've used this seller before & they are very fast in shipping.



    FLGS has been restocked in Beholders the past few weeks.

    $5 CDN hanging on his blister section.

    I think the drought is over.

  8. I think if you planned to paint directly onto the inside of that clear piece as well as the eyeball itself you might get some interesting results... like say the iris on the clear cover and the pupil directly on the eyeball sort of idea.


    Of course I haven’t done any of this myself so it could also turn out horrible.

    Proceed at own risk.

    As of right now the ship is only confirmed to come in two colors:  Bones Black and Glow-in-the-Dark.  Ron seemed very iffy on there being a clear one at this point.

    I thought he made it clear that there would only be the two versions.


    My own feeling is that the glow one isn’t a good idea and I hope the sample materials they receive make them realize that and bring out a translucent instead.

    The WizKids tower is supposed to be three stories high, the stairs look like they're supposed to be placed on the inside, which implies that it might come apart. Looking forward to seeing more about it, though there's no future release date yet. And as for Reaper, there's still time for them to add one as a power-up in the Pledge Manager. ::P:

    That’s the same size as the GW one, which also comes apart with three interior floors, plus the roof.

    It has inner details too.

    So, apparently the New York Toy Fair has garnered a future release from WizKids:





    Well that’s a thing.

    I hope it comes nicely packaged cause I think it would look good next to my GW tower that I bought more than a decade ago that’s still sitting unassembled in its box on my shelf.88C604BD-B273-4616-A64E-BB067CB54FA3.jpeg.78ebf3c88f5ae2176feee1a190f32464.jpeg


    What the Wizkids is lacking in skulls seems to be made up by the number of it’s cultist statues .


    Looks like it’s time to start the rallying cry for a Three foot tall tower from Reaper for Bones 6.

    Does anybody know how many waves Wizkids releases per year?


    Since Wave 11 releases in a week, how long until the previews for Wave 12?


    Don’t know.


    It seems to me that the waves used to come out a lot quicker and have slowed the past year or so.

    Awww..!..poor Sephy.  What nefarious M.E.O.W operative did that?

    M.E.O.W. Denies all blah blah blah. Hush now the games back on.


    Further to Randomness. 

    Canucks leading Boston who are the leagues top team  8-3 late in the third period.

    Now 9-3.

    Figures for the Blood Moon scenario of Rangers of Shadow Deep.

    Very nice. Where are they all from?


    I did receive my copy of the new deluxe book.

    Today I stopped by my FLGS and picked up some things I figured I’d be needing for my game.



    I think I’m already set as far as the adventuring parties go... but I’ve heard these may be good to represent future adversaries.

  15. A lot of the next wave I’ll have to decide on once I see them in person.


    Right now I’m most interest in the Zombie Beholder, the Grell, maybe the wardog and the scenery pieces.


    I was very disappointed in the Bones 4 raptors I received. If the Wizkids ones look better, and I suspect they will, then I’ll be getting some packs of those.

  16. Locally there is a convention going on here at the moment. Monday is a holiday here so it’s still going on.


    It’s a Fan Expo. More of a “meet the celebrity” and comic book, “ look at all the cool stuff to buy “ convention and not really a gaming convention.


    Still kind of a neat thing to go to if you have the money and the inclination to buy nerdy stuff.

    My hobby money is already spoken for and  for me there’s no must see celebrities attending this year so I’m not going.
