  1. The original goal was to find something to inspire me to paint. It was a miniature skirmish game that did it. I finished three models and added highlights to eight others. So I have a team of 11 and so far this month we have managed two games, at lunch on a picnic table we can set up with terrain. Which led me to the next project, a terrain piece centered around the Reaper Bones Dumpster (80035). And while digging through my very old paints I found some of the Reaper paints that had little skulls for agitators. Those need to be on the terrain somewhere.
  2. Think I better start on my Halloween diorama with the pumpkin theme. Starting with Halloween Knight and a pumpkin golem.
  3. The thing is that to play a game you need someone on the other side of the table. There are no other players available in my neck of the woods. Even after the restrictions lift on meeting places my player group wants other games. So I guess I will take my scenario ideas and tie them into a game our local players will play, D&D, Mordhiem, Call of Cthulhu, Warhammer, Monolith Conan or something along those lines. Checking my Warlord stuff did get me painting again, at least.
  4. Added a set of dice to an order of minis and paint, because I love dice. Enjoy the color, green and the container. I have only played Call of Cthulhu with them so I can verify that there were no problems with the d10 and persentile rolling.
  5. It took a bit but there is a Reaper set of lesser elementals that could be made into living spell effects I think I have these somewhere in my collection. Or for the burning hands look a large spider painted in a fire scheme (that's my plan, unless some other miniature in the bits jar makes a better fit). Lucky me I pulled the Living Lightening, so I guess I have to use it.
  6. I ordered the Reaper Paint and Take box along with a few extra miniatures last month. I have paints, brushes and miniatures. There is even time to paint. I guess I don't have excuses this time. Petey, Pizza Dungeon Dragon at the very least. https://www.reapermini.com/search/04003
  7. I am going to resurrect this thread, briefly, as there is a bit of John Carter news here. Won't go into the movie, which I liked but …. There are many good and some bad rules here. I took some advice from this thread and used a mix of Basic Role Playing and GURPS ideas, and a group of appropriate miniatures from my collection. I wasn't getting many interested players. Then along came D&D 5th edition and I was drawn back into that system . Thought I was done with Barsoom. However, I joined the Kickstarter by Modiphius for a 2d20 version of John Carter of Mars (
  8. Thanks for the link! Free is my favorite price. And the information on how to play the game online will give me some happy reading for the next few hours.
  9. A dungeon crawl game was something I was thinking of as well. While digging in my files I found a work in progress "Vampire Hunters". I was using an old TSR Game called "Vampyre, the Game of the Hunt for Dracula" as my inspiration It becomes a bit more of a focused tabletop game than an open skirmish but I believe I have the time to finish it. And it can inspire some miniature painting as well.
  10. Being locked at home has allowed me time to clean out a box or two or three, in the garage. I found my Warlord Rules along with the Dark Heaven Apocalypse Rule book. I plan to use the Warlord rules again to set up some garage battles for my son and me. And this time I will be able to field completely painted warbands. I know the game doesn't get much love, but I enjoyed it. I tried to playtest halflings back in the day but could not interest any other players. I wish the Dark Heaven world-setting had some more detail as well (I have the original Taltos setting and the Northla
  11. Alternate rules for the Warlord system
  12. With the enforced at home time I have cleared up my hobby space and now I hope to paint some figures from the new Black Bones line. The skiff and the raft first followed by the big fish. This will be used in my ongoing D&D campaign, when we get started again.
  13. Planning on completing a diorama inside a pumpkin. Pumpkin golem, pumpkin horrors and maybe a vampire to paint.
  14. Not a short haul by any stretch but Black Sails is a pirate epic (of the R-rated kind). I have completed most of the voyage with the scurvy dogs that make up the crew of the show and will be setting course to finish season 4 tonight. There is a few older movies that fall in at less than 2 hours--Against All Flags maybe. Or Dodge Ball if all ye want is the lingo.
  15. Aye! Welcome aboard shipmates! May you find fair winds and following seas!
  16. Nice! I like the intrigue aboard the ship. And next Dinosaurs! I have been running Tomb of Annihilation games for Adventurer's League recently and I enjoy Chult. Great photos as well!
  17. Haven't painted in months but I have worked on my D&D campaigns. They are stable, so now (on Talk Like A Pirates Day) I believe I will dig out some of the Pirates of the Dragonspine Sea in my collection and paint at least three to go along with the Ghosts of Saltmarsh. Along with the Dreadmere Fishing Boat I just bought. And like many others I need to clean up my desk.
  18. Paint one character for a planned RPG event. It has been a long time since I painted.
  19. Dug through my collection to find five monks and one stone golem to paint as the villains for my D&D campaign.
  20. Nice!! I really like the color scheme, and I am very impressed by the detail in painting the eyes. I have that model and I loved painting it. I used it in tabletop wargames and left the howdah empty for heroes to ride. Looking at your model it occurs to me that Hartha would look good in the Dinosaur Races for D&D campaign.
  21. It has been months since I considered painting any miniatures but, with the New Year, I plan to get things done. First I began separating out and selling the minis I will never paint. Next I used the money to buy 2 ONI (Bones 77472 and 77486). These two are at the top of the painting list.
  22. Working on a Crocodile Man (DHL 2763) and Slithe Queen (DHL 2902) for an exchange with a friend. The exchange is for a sculpted amulet that will part of a Call of Cthulhu game. I have my work cut out for me!
  23. I am half way to getting my painting table clear of junk. Job one is to get rid of the junk. Then I will paint a necromancer to play the villain in my first D&D session of 2017.
  24. With the Holiday coming up I hope to shake things up and actually paint on a sharkman, a giant or a paladin; whichever figures in the next scenario. My success with running a game of D&D has cut into my painting time.
  25. Many neat suggestions as I develop a new playlist for the spring. I have had many people offer me music over the years and my list will include a selection of different sounds. As an example here are some that will be on the list: How Dare You by Steaming Satellites Sleepwalk (live) by the Stray cats Wherever I may Roam by Metallica The Shire by Saxon Moon No One is to Blame by Howard Jones Avalon by Roxy Music Battlestar Galactica Theme by Bear McCreary Ghost's and Stuff by deadmau5 Nessun Dorma by Manowar And I will look through the list of music I get from this thread and buy
