  1. I have a bit of down time this week and it seemed like a great time to *finally* get around to making myself some custom inserts for Reaper's large plastic case (of which I have way too many just enough thanks to Reapercon). The idea is to get enough paint bottles and other tools in one case to make an easy-to-transport travel kit for paint nights at the FLGS. The pistol cases are nice, but they're just not big enough for my travel needs. I should have them done tonight so if you're interested, keep an eye here and I'll post as each piece comes off of the laser. Now, without further ado here's step one: the bottoms for each of the trays made from EVA foam from the dollar store.

    Custom Foam Inserts - WIP

    Clearman, I'm so sorry. I didn't see an indication that there was a new post here. A little late now, I know but to answer your question: I used the existing foam as a template. The foam comes in halves so I scanned one piece on a flatbed scanner taking care not to resize it. Then I imported the image into a vector graphic program (in my case, Corel Draw) and made an outline of the perimeter. That gave me my basic outline and the rest was just fitting the cavities inside and leaving enough space between for a bit of strength.

    SWAG Bags for sale when? If?

    Got one! Plus an extra Sophie and a few other goodies to push the total over the threshold for a second September rogue. :)

    2019 Auction Twitch Stream?

    Are they not streaming the auction after all? I've been living vicariously through Twitch and YouTube. I need my Reapercon fix! ;)

    2019 Auction Twitch Stream?

    Bummer. It was on the twitch schedule, something must have happened.

    Maybe. On the other hand, a lot of that had to do with packaging issues which seem to have been resolved. I hope they do release an expected release schedule, especially in light of the Bones Black claim "always in stock".

    I DO have an 80W laser cutter… just sayin'.

    You are technically correct; the best kind of correct!

    Same. Had to make some hard choices; I would have sworn I got the Trolls though. Seems I cut them last minute. Still, I learned my lesson the last time and made sure to get the big models and the expansions. I'm still bitter that I cut the Sledgehammer from the PM last time… If it's 23.6 lbs of stuff you want, then that's all that matters.

    Not saying what they should, or should not have done here, just wondering aloud. I wonder if it would have been more or less economical to have rented the larger space for the extra month and set up shop there from the beginning. I guess the calculus is between that and the cost to tear down and move mid-fulfillment. Given the owners' accounting background I trust that this way was planned to be more economical, I just wonder if it turned out that way in practice.

    Do you really think anyone is going to give up sleep and food for Bones minis? . . . *Looks around* . . . I withdraw the question.

    I saw that. I choose to believe it was either a requirement of the mold or designed that way to make forehead veins pulse visibly.

    Whoever designed that sprue has an amazing sense of humor; I approve.

    Man, that Carbon Grey looks sweet. I can tell that's going to turn into one of my go-tos.

    Thanks for this! The first picture is the set I didn't get and the last one is the set that I got in place of it. As soon as Reaper posts that they're ready to start addressing errors, I'll let them know. For now, I'm looking forward to a proper unboxing tonight instead of the quick look-through I got yesterday.

    Probably won't run around the house, but I promise to shout "RAWR! RAAAAWWR!" when it chases my PCs around the table.

    Not teasing, just a teaser. Until I got it out and ready for a pic.

    Watching Critical Role on my new TV and opening Bones 4. It's a good night. Hmm… my paint set B is only half-right; I got one box of the kickstarter colours and one box of pathfinder colours. Check your boxes! Here's a great example of Bones Black really shining; look at how straight these swords are, right out of the box:

    Holy crap! Argent is big enough to be a life-sized pseudodragon! Hmm…

    I keep checking my UPS tracking and my box is still "Out For Delivery" and I'm torn. On the one hand, I want to see "Delivered" really badly. On the other hand, if UPS comes late enough, I could be home when the box arrives. Huh. Irony really is the best way to predict the future. As I was writing, this happened:
