    Tagging or Name problems v2

    Stone Giant Guard 44085 is listed as a Gaint and does not come up when searching with the term "giant". That gaint right.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Y'all do know that not all dinosaurs had feathers, right? Siri's post shows a couple of examples of fossilized skin that have no feathers, and there is a rather famous fossilized nodosaur "mummy" with no feathers.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Are we sure the ninjas aren't already there? They're pretty good at hiding... As for existing sculpt vs. all new, every Bones KS has utilized existing sculpts in addition to new, so this is not unusual.
  4. I just watched a YouTube video on the Clever Paper printed and shipped flat card stock terrain found on Amazon. Has anyone tried these? The prices look really good ($12 to $20 and a few higher) and the quality looks pretty good. I think it would be good for Frostgrave and maybe Mordheim. And they have several ships! I think I might have to try one... or a dozen.

    This thread has reached the end of the line. All passengers must disembark. A new thread will be departing shortly. Thank you for riding the Randomness Thread.

    My time as the namer of the current thread is coming to an end. It was good while it lasted. The thread is dead; long live the thread!

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Twenty minutes. That's the time between getting an email from Miniature Market that the beholder was back in stock and checking the site. Sold out in twenty minutes for a product that has been out for over a year. I certainly don't need it, but I wonder how many of them are being gobbled up by speculators. I hope the speculators all go broke.

    What is that in the distance? Oh, it's the end of the thread. Carry on.
  10. Ordered a few Pathfinder Adventure Paths from Piazo, they have several of them on sale for $12.

    RIP Rutger Hauer

    Sad news indeed. He was one of the few actors I would have liked to have had a conversation with. He was in The 10th Kingdom as well.

    Highlighting/shading chestnut

    I would shade chestnut with black or dark green. Both are cool colors and will look more realistic than shading with a warm color, even if not actually matching real life. They will reduce the chroma as well as the value of the color, but objects in shadow appear to be less pure and more grey. I might try an orange mixed with your base color for the highlight color to counter the pink.

    Power went out a couple of hours ago, utility claiming wind damage. Storms were yesterday, I suspect some fool too impatient to wait for a crew from the power company tried to clear downed branches or trees on his own did more harm than good. With over half a million without power from yestersay's storms in Michigan it might be awhile. Board games it is!

    Woohoo! Way to think outside the box!

    Pinning HeroForge Brass

    I've had minis with narrow attachments to the base break off and had good results with placing a blob of epoxy putty on the base and pressing the feet of the mini into the putty to form an impression. I then let the epoxy cure fully before gluing the mini back into the impression. You could try pressing tiny pieces of plastic or wood into the hole around the drill bit, leaving them sticking out proud of the surface for a bit of extra sheer resistance.
