So. I am sitting in a comics-and-a-few-games shop studying Celtic mythology and chaperoning for the next few hours while young relations play "Magic: The Gathering" upstairs. "Star Trek 2: The Wrath of Khan" is playing. It's a pretty nice place. And then I notice by the Chessex dice are someone's old minis for sale, individually packaged in clear Chessex boxes. I think it's someone's old collection. There are eighteen, all glued down to little wood squares so I can't i.d. manufacturers. Two are three are unpainted, four or five are painted so nicely I would hate to strip them, and the rest are painted kind of meh. All the paint is shiny enough for me to suspect enamels. There is this female cleric from Metal Magic and a nice old unpainted werewolf I haven't been able to identify. There's a jester with a dog hand puppet and only his face painted, but his surface looks crystalline and I suspect incipient lead rot. The one I'm curious about is the fat man from "The Maltese Falcon", holding a Maltese Falcon. I can't find any information online about him. He's one of the nicely painted ones. There's what might be a companion piece of an old man with a monocle and a fez and walking shorts and a knobbly walking stick and tassels on his socks with a necktie to match. There's a painted dwarf with a bent axe but an incredibly beautifully detailed face that I am tempted by despite the paint. I don't think I have a hope of identifying "dwarf with an axe" without a picture. There's also a rather nice female elf paladin, crudely painted. I am trying to recall how much trouble enamel paint is to remove, since I find myself unaccountably tempted.
I got the RPM link last night, took a look at the forum to see what problems folks were having, and then I went to the RPM to complete my order. No problems whatsoever finishing it using Firefox. The form was well organized, and no problems in processing/connecting. Just for completeness, before I tried in Firefox, I did try to load it up in IE. I confirm that like other folks who have tried IE, the buttons for going to the next page are missing. In the other threads, I see that Reaper is actively responding to concerns and questions and appear to be pulling an all-nighter to make sure issues are addressed fast since the sun is not even up in Texas yet. Outstanding work folks. I look forward to getting my package in the spring !
