Instigator (4/8)



  1. Sorry for delayed response. Broonkah box completed circuit 12-23. I thought I had responded at the time.
  2. I suspect I will be in the minority, but I have always approached the BoGW as an example of one person’s discard is another’s treasure. Some people prefer metal, some bones, some resin, some lead, some board game pieces and some basing material. For me, 3d prints fall in as another subcategory. I have selected some 3d prints in the past that were obviously imperfect/ incomplete prints. I liked what part of the figure was there and thought “hmm a little green stuff and this would be cool”. I understand the argument against 3d prints and perceived value when compared to commercial minis. One could make a similar argument for any of the subcategories. Some people are seemingly terrified by lead miniatures. I’ve been collecting since the 70s and have a large number of lead figures. I think the danger is overstated, but to each their own. Perhaps the approach might be to have BoGW boxes by category preferences. I think this might become more headache for Chaoswolf than anyone would want to endure. And I suspect there would be an issue with that solution within 2 cycles of the BoGW anyway. I enjoy the BoGW. I look forward to it more than I would have expected. Some part of the joy comes from seeing the enjoyment of others selections. But also thinking about if others will find what I add useful or amusing. If consensus is for more rules, so be it. In the end, my hope is we all appreciate the varied aspects of the hobby and remember that most of the rest of the world dismisses our interest in “toys”. Ok, ramble over. Have a great day. B
  3. Rooms you might add: Bridge Brig Life support control center Holo deck Gun turrets/weapons bay Smuggling bays Escape pods Transporter room Shuttle bay Captains quarters Observation deck w/ hot tub (Ok maybe that’s just my ship) I saw a post somewhere about a portable set up for a space ship where they didn’t do hallways but used small plastic bins for rooms, then put them together in whatever configuration that was needed. The bins were stackable. You might be able to use your rooms as storage holders for your hallways, making the transport footprint better. B Found the posts I referenced above both on this forum and LAF. Froggy the Great had a topic from 2014 …. Starship build cheap. Amazing stuff.
  4. Hi, I am Broonkah, and I have a Kickstarter addiction. 184 backed 166 delivered 5 soon to deliver 5 still in development 2 running late 4 unsuccessful 2 dead/scam this over a ten year span. I have struggled hard this year to back more sparingly. I think it’s only 12 this year. Several more I barely made my saving throw. Shipping has obviously played a part in decision to back, but I have lately just backed for pdfs on some projects I normally would have selected physical books. I am trying to limit further backings this year to less than 5. But the new “shineys” are so tempting. B
  5. Broonkah box on its way to msfnc this date. 10-31-2022.
  6. I’m in with starter box from last circuit. East Texas no international shipping Broonkah
  7. Very sad as well, I could spend hours picking thru the bins. Was great for metal conversion parts. And I always found several way too cool minis I had forgotten, that were now must haves. Plus it was, for me, a connection to the old days when Reapercon was in the factory.
  8. Picked up Broonkah box yesterday . Circuit completed.
  9. I got one as well, but have only primed it. Had similar idea for colors. Yours is stunning.
  10. No, back then, the schools provided sheets of paper, usually with advertising on it. I just borrowed a few extra. If I remember correctly the covers for my DND books were white glossy paper with a big hiking boot on it.
  11. I still have most of them. I was never scared by the dangerous evil lead. Haven’t seen them in a few months. I have a serious gaming hoarding problem and while my wife has been extremely understanding, I am starting to realize a purge is long overdue.
  12. Turned 14 during the year, started high school. Was doing the Boy Scout thing. Ended a horribly mediocre soccer career. Took up a mediocre interest in tennis instead. Had been playing dnd for a few years by then. I remember wrapping my ADnD players handbook and DMs Guide with book covers like my textbooks and reading them in class. My gaming hoarding addiction was just starting then. Loved the micro games from Metagaming. Especially GEV and Melee and Wizard (later to become The Fantasy Trip). Started my mound of shame with Ral Partha, Grenadier and Asgard dwarf spearmen. It is funny now to watch how mainstream RPGs are now, when I remember the hysterics about them in east Texas in the early 80s.
  13. Watched the Clever Crow with Ron today. And thought, if an inn would be to big for Bones VI, what about sections of logs or planks, sort of like the raft. They could be of different lengths and serve as walls, walkways, gangplanks, western sidewalks or fences. also on my wish list: Ed Sculpts - more arachnids An Ed sculpt of “the Ronning man” Thuggees like from chronoscope 30s style gangsters Insectmen (and women) Halfling outriders on armored Bassett hound Elvis-es (the King in many facets… orc, elf, dwarf, ogre, undead….) Battle of the bands (fantasy music bands) Henchmen (and women) in coveralls (like minions for an evil super-genius) Food Golems (pizza golems, meat golems, veggie golems and yummy dessert golems) bones versions of the girl and boy campers (like from chronoscope) B
  14. I’m in. I have the box from last round, so I am ready to be a starter East Texas No international
