  1. Thank you, everyone! I had a great birthday, and one of my favorite gifts was the go ahead from my wife to jump into Bones 5. ;)
  2. I received my stuff this week. A core set, bridge set, and the troll hole. I can see how the core set ended up with the extra mine entrance, as the 'core set' came in two retail boxes marked as "Starter Set". The retail boxes themselves don't show the three stair pieces in the pictures. I assume the stairs pieces were meant as a separate retail item and it got lost in the shuffle in terms of inclusion with the core set deliveries. Either way, I will just wait for them to ship the stairs after they get the restock in. No complaints on my end with what they delivered.
  3. I ordered none of those and I'm still waiting. (So at least four things then) Same here. This is what I ordered: Staff of Hambledon's Inn party x2 ($50); Burnville Troops party x1 ($25); Maiden x2 ($8); Inn Patron x2 ($8); Wool Merchant mounted on Pony x1 ($8); Gardener x1 ($4);Halfling Children Group x1 ($5); Still patiently waiting.
  4. @Talae, I assume you mean the magnetic walls add-on pack, since the stretch goals included some magnetic walls along with the magnetic signs? For myself, I regret my decision to not get the lighted walls or brazier add-ons, as the actual products from the pictures and videos look even better than the concepts and prototypes. Especially the walls, as I was under the impression that the torches would be permanently attached, which is one reason I opted not to get them. Oh well, perhaps I will look into picking up a set when they are posted to retail along with the new Pokorny paint colors.
  5. DSMiles box is now on its way to DogBL. Tracking lists expected delivery of Tuesday October 6th.
  6. DSMiles box is now officially sealed. Shipping label has been printed and I will drop it off at the post office in the morning. Look out DogBL, the box will be on its way to you soon!
  7. DSMiles box will get packed up tonight and sent off tomorrow to DogBL. I will post in the no chatter thread when it is in the mail. I have finished my part of the group paint figure for our box:
  8. So, pictures of what I have selected from the DSMiles box: Here is the 'group shot': And here are some close-ups: I have a lot of items to add to the box, including miniatures and several bits bags; and there are still plenty of items I left in there. I have been 'on the lookout' for more aquatic miniatures ever since I completing painting part of my Dwarven Forge Caverns tiles in an underwater cavern paint scheme. My wife really likes the frog, which is why I chose that one. The large plastic terrain base (upper left) I have plans for utilizing in a future diorama involving LEDs. The base is hollow with plenty of space for the LED components/battery etc. The armless metal figure sitting on top of the plastic bag (bottom left) is an old ork figure, and will fit right in to the Ork army I have; I already have plenty of arm choices to use with him to fit right in. The black figure between the ork and the base is a Darth Vader miniature. My kids and I love Star Wars and it was one of their first choices when we examined the box. I still have the group paint figure to sort out (will be sending a group message to everyone on the route with a couple questions relating to it) before I can send the box on to DogBL. I should still be able to send it out by Saturday if not before.
  9. As far as I can tell nothing appears to have slipped out. The box was still well secured with tape, and there really wasn't any loose stuff not in bags or packaging; at least not anything small enough to slip out. Lots of interesting things in the box, including the journal that started in Round one. There is a container for a group paint figure, which I assume kept Sir Forscale secure during the first round, but it is currently empty. I am seriously considering putting one in after some initial work. It could be another Sir Forscale as I have several, or something else. Any preferences from those that follow, including OneBoot who is the last stop for this box? I have Bones 1 & 2, as well as Stonehaven Dwarves. The earliest I can send the box on will be Wednesday, but it may not be until Saturday if life gets really busy. We will see.
  10. Here is the faithful DSMiles box. It has been through a lot. I think I will replace it with a new one as it is starting to come apart at the seams. https://flic.kr/p/yQGAgb
  11. I will make myself a note to make sure I include some crossbows. I know I have some, both GW and probably some Mantic as well. I have one of those plastic cases with the pull-out drawers full of them. (the case is at least 12" wide by 18" tall and about 4 to 5" deep, at least 15 to 20 drawers in the case). And that doesn't include my GW plastic ogre bits, which I kept in a separate box (an OK battalion box) while working on my GW Ogre Kingdom's army several years back. The vast majority of my bits are either ogre/gnoblar related, dwarf related or human knight (aka Brettonia) related; although I did acquire a modest amount of elf, undead, other human, and orc/goblin bits; and a few others. For those on the Dsmiles route, let me know if there are any specific types of bits you would be interested in and if I have them I will do my best to prioritize adding them to the box this round. I am sure I have plenty to add to many box rounds to come.
  12. Sorry again. But while I am editing this post, let me ask a question: in addition to having miniatures to exchange, I have a large amount of 'bits' both plastic and metal, mostly from GW kits. Should I add them to the box as "freebies"? I have plenty of small plastic baggies that I can group them in.
  13. Chris, I am still waiting on Dsmiles to send the box. Sounds like real life interrupted his plans to send it Monday.
  14. I use the poster putty (blue-tac) to secure my minis to wood 'spools' obtained from the local craft store (Hobby Lobby). Here is a picture of my current setup: As these are all Bones, there is only a small amount of the poster putty used to secure the bottom of the miniature to the wood 'spool'. I have found that some pressure, and even some slight twisting pressure, helps to get the putty to stick to both the miniature and the wood spool. I have used this same setup with metal miniatures (Stonehaven dwarves) and other than slightly more putty, it works just as well for this size miniature. For larger miniatures, I have larger width spools/dowels that I use, and more putty as well. Also, I find that a fairly thin layer of the putty works as well as a thick layer, sometimes better, but the trick is always using enough pressure to get the entire surface of the putty to stick to the miniature, and to the wood spools. You can see on the friar and the bard, there is a small amount of putty that extended past the base of these miniatures. This may help demonstrate how thin a layer I am using on these.
  15. I used to have (and use) the GW foundation paints. Now I have the Reaper HD paints and many of the MSP paints. I have found in my use that the HD paints do very well at coverage like the GW Foundation paints, but with more control. I love the dropper bottles, which was one of many reasons that led me to switch to Reaper paints and give my GW paints to my younger brother.
  16. With about 70 minutes left, this kickstarter has passed the $10,000 stretch goal! This means all backers at pledge level $65 and up will receive the mounted Cardinal and the mounted halfling Dartleby Onion, as well as a free bonus pack. Backers at $130 level and above also get a second free bonus pack. Last stretch goal (at $12,000) is for the mounted and dismounted Basile le Fou (limited edition), plus an additional bonus pack for backers at pledge level of $65 and up, if reached. Basile le Fou is currently offered as an add-on, but will be free to backers of $65 level and up if we reach the goal.
  17. With 16 hours to go, this kickstarter has achieved its funding goal! Mounted Cardinal now free for all backers at $65 level and up, and for backers at $130 pledge level and up there is also a free bonus pack that can be chosen from the options here (see the Kickstarter page for details and pictures): At the $10,000 stretch goal, if we reach it, the mounted version of the halfing Dartleby Onion is free for all backers at $65 level and above. Also, $65 and $85 level backers also get a free bonus pack; while $130 level and above get a second free bonus pack.
  18. We are in the last two days of this kickstarter. Gary added information on single figure add-ons as well as bonus packs added to the stretch goals. Currently about $1200 from funding. I love the character of these sculpts, especially like the ponies, they could be used as mounts for other miniatures as well. Imagine they may work well with the mounted figures in the Stonehaven line, like the halflings. I am planning on using magnets to make the riders easily swappable.
  19. I would like to sign up for round 3. I am in Georgia, prefer not to ship international, and don't have enough to be a starter, at least not this round. And I would love to be in a circuit with a group paint.
  20. Thanks for the comments! I will try and take a few more pictures of the birds, especially the hawk and falcon, from different angles, as the current angle doesn't show much of the painting.
