  1. Thanks Stern. It's the "busy season" in the Hazardous Waste Industry. With the coming of winter, the oil patch is kicking it up a notch. More overtime than one man can handle I'm afraid...
  2. Heyya Kelcore! Yup, I had those pics on file for a long time. I finally got my server to install the image manipulation scripts so that the gallery would run, but by that time, I had lost you, so didn't want to upload them without checking in. Add to that the 3 instances of crashes & formating of hard disks... the pics are gone I'm afraid. For some reason, the gallery suddenly decided that 2 of the photo albums were "not legitimate", and refuses to display them. I haven't had time to investigate yet, but once I get it fixed, I can easily recreate the member gallery for you if you like. That way, you can log in and administer your own album as you like. Those were great pics though! Apologies for the mess.
  3. I'm back! Back I say! To those who might recall, I did the move to a new town thing this summer. Had troubles (as in a long wait period) getting internet connection, and after that was done, the old PII 233 blew up. I managed to revive it for a few hundred bucks (it unwittingly became a money pit), but then self destructed a few days later. I went insane. I usded my uber cheesy charisma however, to convince a friend to swap out parts for me with his "old" system, and so now here I am! A lightning quick Athalon 1.8! 40 Gig hard drive! Wowza, what a machine (at least when compared to the old PII.) It actually finishes booting BEFORe the coffee pot does! YAA! Anyway, I'm back after some months, and I mean to finally get me that ring!
  4. So what scale do you buy? I found a Canadian retailer ( http://www.modelbuilderssupply.com/ ) but need to determine what scale to buy. Thye suggest a model railroad scale of G= 1:24 – O=1:50 and HO=1:100. Not sure what scale railroad would work with a standard 28 -32 mm mini though??
  5. BAGAH?? I say again: BAGAH??!! INFO PLEASE! Mossbeard would work well too IMO.
  6. Warlord dwarves rock! The WotC Chainmail dwarves were the first to get me to like the dwarves (I've always hated the GW variety), but the Reaper dwarves clinched it. I am a hunk of chunk of a bearded dwarf fan boy now. Is there any chance we'll see some dwarf engineering in the future? Warmachines and gadgets and the like?
  7. So, being a Canuck withvery little money (and thus unable to attend Origins), when can I expect the Warlord book to appear on the street? (Or even in the online store?) Another impatient one.
  8. I love to hate spiders, so I grabbed this bad boy as soon as I saw him. Sorry, I don't have a digi cam, so no comparison pics. It's likely a good deal smaller than Shelob though (haven't actually seen her in the real yet). I'd say that the thing is about as "long" as a standard 25 mm mini, and about waist height on a Warlord mini. A grand mini though, and I highly recommended it. I think I'll paint her up as a balck widow personally.
  9. I can see this game going into overtime.
  10. I believe that sound is: "GAK! The wife is gonna kill me!!"
  11. So is it only the "crust" that you peel off, or does the entire depth of the sand become glue soaked and rock hard? This sounds much easier and cheaper, than cutting everything out of styrofoam. Might have to give this a try.
  12. That does rock! She needs a big brother though. Give us male version too! MORE! MOOOOORE! Feed me Semour!
  13. Mounted people! Yea.... some cavalry would be uber cool. More pirates to man Razig's frigates would be sweet too! Did I mention cavalry? Horses, lizards, spider riders. Cavalry man! Cavalry.
  14. That was killer Zaph! I broke out is a grand guffaw! Well done! That is a direct out take form one of those Molson Canadian comerrcials... good stuff. hehehee... The Candian version of Bo Duke! Oh, and the legs are not his fault. In Canada, we only have 3 weeks of summer. After that, you wear snow suits... besides which, the mosquitoes here are the size of small trucks! They'll eat you alive!! (I seen it happen once!) You can always tell a Canadian by their ghostly pale legs... I have no pics of me newer than 10 years, so will temporarily remain an avatar. In the meantime, think "Brad Pitt meets Viggo Mortensen as Aragorn". Yea.... that's me..... yea.... but with more of a Faramir style nose.
  15. WOOT! 2005! Yea Kit! I was worried that Reapercon might have been a " once in a while" type of thing. Annual would be uber schaweet! And it gives me a whole year to start saving! (Or maybe lotto ticket buying would be easier....) EDIT: Oh, btw, a terrain class would be uber kewl! I'd also be interested in learning about the "business" of casting. How much start up cost, required equipment, etc. Maybe a shorty info session or two??
  16. It wasn't in the fiscal cards for this year I'm afraid, so I couldn't attend despite my uber best intentions. It sounds like the first Reapercon was a smash hit, and I definitely hope there are more to come! ::Starts saving nickels and picking up all those stray pennnies.::: I am looking forward to all the pics and stories, and trust that Kit will post some sort of "official" coverage of the event on the site?? Wish I could have been there.... BTW, one of those swag hats is mine! I've got enough points at last!!! YEAAA!
  17. So, has anyone tried porting Warlord into D&D (or vice versa)? I am still looking for a skirmish/mass battle system that I can use to port my D&D characters into. When Chainmail came out, I thought my problems were solved, but alas... Anyway, how difficult would it be to render a D&D character into the Warlord rules?
  18. Do you have a link for these new rules? I love Mordheim, and am interested in the Empire in Flames accessory as well. Once Warlord goes published, will likely switch over to those rules, but for now, Warhammer Skirmish rules seem to be the best. (Though I admit I have yet to try the new D&D Miniature Hardcover).
  19. Man, you might have Figmentia worse than I do.... Take them all, then by a whole bunch more while you're there! That's what I'd do. I mean, how many pairs of socks do you really need? Hmm.. on second thought... socks would make nice packing material to protect all those precious minis on the return trip.....
  20. Does anyone have a hard date for the release of the Book? I hear it's after Origins (??), but that does me little good. When is it going to be on the store shelves and in my grubby greedy hands? Oh, and in case MD is onto something with this trick... Where are more Dwarves, and Undead Pirates?! WHERE ARE MORE DWARVES, AND UNDEAD PIRATES?!?!
  21. GADS! The warrior scuplt on your homepage is my ultimate fave! Do you have more pics of him? Fantastic work! I hope to see some of your minis on my table soon!
  22. Thanks Enchantra! Some good points in there that I would never have considered. One more question that popped up though - should I 'glue" the green stuff armour plate onto the mini, or will the "epoxy-like" behaviouur of the putty meld it to the model?
  23. So I have some green stuff. I have a conversion ready for green stuff. I rip open the bag of green stuff and then.... what? Do I roll up little balls of puddy, sculpt scale plates individually, and then stick it on the mini, or do I attach the ball of goo straight to the mini and start carving and shaping? Do I need to worry about shrinkage? The cheap "green modeler puddy in a tube" I used to fill out the gaps and holes seems to have "fallen" (Like a cake would) after it dried, and also cracked like old concrete. THe plan is to use "real" green stuff over top, so I'm not too worried about the poor way the first tubed puddy came out. Just want to make sure it doesn't happen with the final product. Also, how durable is green stuff once it dries? I game with my figures, so this spider guy will be touched, moved, bumped and likely (but hopefully not) dropped. Can I seal and varnish the green stuff in order to give it a layer of "laquere like" protection, then prime and paint? Do I need to worry about it even? I've never used green stuff, and I have no desire to toss 15 bucks out hte window, or destroy the conversion I have been (slowly) working on for over a year. Maybe if I sneak up on it from the side, it'll be allright.
  24. :::Morg's ears perk up::: BA-GAH???!! What is this you say? No no no... say it is not true! Reaper is making a french knight?? You're not just tryingto invoke anarchy are you? I'm starting to get up...
  25. War Pandas are quite potent. Tehy sucker you in with their cuteness, and then BAM! smack you on the melon. For kicks, I suggest the Captian ride the War Panda.
