  1. Holy crap, was that 4 years ago already! I picked up the mini a while back. She's definitely amazonian in proportions, but within human limits. Actually perfect for what I was looking for, although I never ended up doing the mod I planned on.
  2. I am playing a sorcerer with the brass draconic bloodline in Pathfinder. Eventually, I'll start being able to turn into a dragon, starting at medium size, then large, and eventually huge. I already have a huge-sized brass dragon (77109: Fire Dragon), but I'd like to have a mini to use for medium and large sizes. What do you guys suggest, either from Reaper or other companies?
  3. Wow, everyone. Thanks for the praise. :) I think I need to fix the blotch on his forehead, but otherwise, I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. Indeed. I have a big spool of floral wire I use for pinning. I just used a piece of that and used a grinding wheel on my dremel to sharpen the end into a point. I also cut away the big medallion and used some putty to close up his shirt most of the way.
  4. I am working on an upcoming game of Save Rifts. One of my PCs is a dragon hatchling. We haven't settled on a mini for his dragon form just yet, but I asked the player what he wants for his humanoid form (they have the power to transform temporarily into a humanoid). He looked through all my Reaper Bones kickstarter minis and pulled one out, and came up with a backstory explaining how he chose it. Long story short- he's a fan of Bob Ross' Joy of Painting. I turned this mini: Into this: Yes, I am very proud of myself.
  5. Hah! That would have worked for my druid's animal companion. I decided he was a otter hound, using the riding dog stats.
  6. I wasn't going to back this, but I got 50 hours of overtime in the past 2 weeks. I'm reconsidering :)
  7. The guy from Hirst Arts recommends "Envirotex Lite, Pour-on High Gloss Finish". I bought some a while back, but never ended up using it. You can check out his tutorials here: http://www.hirstarts.com/tipsmain/tipsmain.html
  8. For some reason, I thought John C. Reilley's lines were the best in the movie. Maybe it was his delivery, but they made me laugh the hardest.
  9. I would have to assume they learned a bit from the first batch, as you would expect. If it turns out bones aren't the best for some models, there are still plenty of models that it's great for, and still allows us all to acquire vast piles of miniatures at a good price, saving our dollars for the small, detailed ones we really want in metal.
  10. Such a good effect, I'd be afraid to touch it without a tetanus shot!
  11. I try not to get too sciency when it comes to discussing mythical creatures. I don't imagine they evolved, so evolutionary biology isn't necessarily taken into account. As far as I'm concerned, there are no appreciable physical differences in ability between male and female dragons, although secondary sexual characteristics might be noticable to someone knowledgable. Their voice quality might be different, as it usually is for other sentient races (or if they communicate telepathically, they might take on a gendered voice). Anyway, the genders of my dragon minis exist in a quantum state un
  12. Sorry for the hijack, but quickly, for anyone interested: the interview went really well and I got the job. It's a huge relief to know I won't be unemployed. Starting over at the bottom every few years sucks, but I sort of dodged a bullet there. The severance will help a lot, as well. And now back to eagerly awaiting the new bones...
  13. My gaming and GMing style is to be in-character as much as possible, but not more than people are comfortable with. The number one rule is always err on the side of fun, unless it will create an obvious problem for later, and that means, for me, that if people are more comfortable speaking in character, let them, and if not, that's fine too. I recommend a screen. Especially when you're getting used to the rules, you'll want to fudge rolls from time to time. I fudge rolls mostly in order to avoid killing a character too quickly (I GM Savage Worlds, where a lucky roll can one-shot anyone), o
  14. You're right. I haven't increased the area, just makes them more visible from the front. Since the stands go nearly all the way to the top, I don't see a need for creating any more effective shelves. You have to crouch down to see the lower shelf, or kneel to see the bottom shelf as it is- cramming in any more would cause them to overlap.
  15. You can't beat the price. You couldn't even get the glass for $65! I was actually pretty surprised at how sturdy it was when I put it together. You can get at least 60 figures on each stand, so that's 240 per case. I'll need one case just for my kickstarter bones!
