Yeah, well, I got mine after the age of video cameras. I could only grab a couple before a dishwasher came charging out the back door,so I had to hit a lot of different places... particularly when it came time to do the bed frame, the sofa, and the dining table...

I know the case is estimated to be between 100 and 150 figures, but does anyone know whether they're large enough to hold a figure after it's been based? Gonna PM Bryan about it too, just to be sure. I'm sitting here doing the math for what I can afford by Saturday, what I'd like to get if the RPM is still up once I get my September slush [if Kit's estimating 30 days, it should], and what I can pass on entirely until it hits retail.

 

The case is one of those things up for debate...if it'll hold based figures [1" square], then it's on my list to pick up; even if it retails at $50 it'll be a lot cheaper than an ArmyTransport and its ilk, and while it won't work for huge models [the orc spearman looks to be a tight fit], it'll work for normal-sized ones very nicely.

THIS was the first dragon I ever owned....

Oh, fair warning: the address dates back to 1980 or so, so I'd bet Tom Loback ain't answerin' mail there any more...

 

But I remember that this dragon ran about sixteen, twenty bucks, not counting the ludicrous shipping cost. And now Reaper's shipping me a whole passel of them...

DEVIL DEVIL DEVIL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

 

Seriously thou, ummm well ah screw it. If your interested in playing S&W play by post style I have a semi-open spot in a game I'm running here. I use the Core rules as they are free for everyone to download & look through. Right now the cleric was a PC & then is now a NPC. I'd rather have a player playing that role or that spot. If your interested, just post in the Gathering post I have there. It's more or less the free talk, alerts section for the game.

 

Now back to the KS!! 2.5+!!!!!

Ceramic one? Oh, no. The ceramic one was just my first ceramic one. I didn't even get that one until I was in my thirties.

 

The Dragontooth one, though... that one I got when I was thirteen. I loved that dragon, even if the wings wouldn't stay on, even with solder...

lol this has been the 3d time where I open up the reapermini.com page and the kickstarter banners say $0. LOL

 

It's probably because the banner seems to be sampling pretty quickly, which makes me think its almost realtime. Kickstarter's servers throttle the requests per minute, and if it's getting hammered a lot, it would be returning a blank page.

Crosspost from the Trade Thread, but putting in here just so everyone knows!

 

For folks in the Boston/Greater Boston area, I plan on having a Reaper Mini's Bone's Paint & Swap at some fun meeting location on some fun weekend shortly after the Bones delivery (probably 2-3 weeks after to ensure that everyone gets theirs).

 

I'll post more as we get closer, but this /will/ happen!

 

Stay tuned!

I thought the Swords and Wizardry pdf was kinda random though.

I definitely dig it! Personally I thought it would be a pdf of Warlord instead. S&W is a more broadly popular choice though.

Milk Crates: The happy medium!

In times when you're high on space and low on furnishing a few zip ties is all you need to craft yourself a lovely bookshelf/entertainment center. When you;re flush and furnished, just nip the ties and stack them in the closet.

Why waste the closet space? Just keep the milk crates up and don't waste the money on the overpriced particleboard that passes for furniture nowadays.

I hear ya! It has gotten so bad I've actually bought a few of my crates. Not often, but If I see them cheap at thrift stores or garage sales I won't pass them up.
I know the case is estimated to be between 100 and 150 figures, but does anyone know whether they're large enough to hold a figure after it's been based?
Many will fit, but some of the figs will probably need 2 foam cells merged together.

      Fireforge games will be launching their dwarf faction for their Forgotten World range. I really enjoyed their northmen line which were basically game of thrones not Stark warriors. They had undead in that same Kickstarter.
       
      so these will be heroic 28mm hard plastic multipart figures. This is what’s been shown so far.
       
       



      There will also be foot troops with spears and hand weapons. And both male and female will be on sprue. 
       
      they haven’t confirmed yet, but if it follows with their other Kickstarter, there should be resin shields and resin heroes available too.

      I was a little surprised to not see this already here.  I just got a 48 hour notification on a game called "Lurkers of the Deep" - it's apparently an expansion to a miniatures game, but in addition to the game they're also selling a bunch of 20s/30s pulp/cthulhu style minis.  (And a number of buildings, too.)  I'm not interested in the game, but I put down a 30 pound pledge to get a bunch of the figures and get the various free stretch goals figures.
       
      There's only another 46 or so hours left, so I guess that means it ends early on March 1st.

      My partner for the Secret Sophie exchange this year was NecroMancer and they requested demons or some other stuff, so I painted the Queen of Hell.  About the same time I had ordered a 3D printer and I had found a base that kind of matched an idea I had in my head.  The printer was going to ship on time, then it wasn't, then it was, and finally came in just in time to print my display base. It is from the celestial pack by Archvillain Games. It's 100mm plus some overhang. For a bit of additional flair I added some blood imps to the base. 
       
      One thing about pre-made display bases though is they can be next to impossible to actually use if they are not designed well.  This base is an example of that as there is so much rubble that I had to carve away spaces for feet or build up the area with a bit of milliput to give them something to stand on. Since ancient statues were actually painted I decided to go with that and put a simple face on the bit of statue that remained.
       


       
      The Queen was actually painted before my printer arrived and because things hadn't gone crazy at work yet, I actually had time to paint her properly.  I went for a stylized NMM on her armor.  It was the first time I had tried NMM this way.  It worked but I need some more practice to really sell it.  I didn't want her to look like some cheap plastic figure (even though she kinda is ) so instead of going red like the blood imps I made her skin mostly human and then put the orange/red/purples in the midtones and shadows.
       
      Her wings don't fit in my tiny photo setup so...
       



       
      And with wings. They were not attached for shipping and needed a bit of support, so ignore the paint bottle.  Bones are evil.  Mold lines suddenly appear everywhere.  And for better or for worse, a year from now her wings will sink toward the earth, but they should rotate and touch the base.
       


       
      A few extra pics I took, if anyone wants to look

      I have me a bit of a dubious, largely because I'm not certain these will, in fact, work for anybody. But. Still.. the concept is pretty damn cool.
       
      "Tilt Five is a whole new way to play games, in Augmented Reality (AR), with freaking holograms!
      When you slip on the Tilt Five glasses and look at the game board, a vibrant 3D world opens up to you.  Suddenly chasms seem to drop infinitely into your table, and game characters and monsters spring up from the game board.  This is gaming unlike anything you've experienced before. 
      "When we started designing the Tilt Five system our focus wasn't on the technology for technology's sake.  We wanted to provide an amazing gaming experience that blends the things you love about video games and board games. And we wanted it to be just as fun when playing solo, together with your friends, or even when you're apart."  Jeri Ellsworth, Co-Founder & CEO "
       
      Be interesting to see if this lives up to itself.
