I think it might actually be "good guys" - a bunch of knights, angels, and other typically good creatures. Maybe not 100% good... But I think the catagories will tend toward 'good' characters, at least.

 

At first, I was debating two sets of 2e, because it promising & I want to be able to do good and evil knights... I want at least two devas to paint, so if I have the cash, I'll probably get two now. And extra anhurians? Ngggggggh.... :wacko:

 

And I actually will get the E3 just for that TARDIS. I don't need armored spacemen...

 

Unless I do a Doctor Who-themed game, in which case they will populate my spacebase.

 

Think about it - shipping crates, weapons lockers, army men... that gives me plenty of fodder for a Whovian game. And Angels... So many possibilities! I need more! SO MANY IDEAS!

 

Any suggestions for system? I usually do fantasy in 3.5, but this might actually convince me to go sci-fi. Reaper, you sly dogs, you...

 

Actually, the Doctor Who RPG by Cubicle 7 Entertainment is a very nice system for playing Who.

 

 

Oh yeah! And Europeans LOVE angels! There are angel statues all over the place on that continent! :P

 

Weeeeell, the BBC really tries to change that, I would say...

1) Bigger monsters

2) Groups of multipurpose fantasy minis

The idea was that the later expansions might be themed, because Exp1 was kind of a mix of random stuff and of unusual grouped stuff like Egyptian. If the later expansions are only as themed as Exp1 (eg, "multipurpose groups" compared to "bigger monsters") that isnt really the sort of theme that was implied.

Right now the theme appears to be "What people have been begging for that is not a Terrasque". I know that the current items in Exp 2 are some of ones I have seen as for the most both here and in the comments section. This makes sense and while Angels are not high on my want list, they are for others. On the bright side there are still lots of unrevealed slots so still time for Cavalry mooks and dwarven mooks and elven mooks and halfling mookies (really small mooks only qualify as mookies) and some more generic towns folk like a half-orc baker or gnome cooper. Female mooks would also be really cool prehaps with swappable heads or per my wife, swappable hairstyles.

Okay, but I'm storing them separately.

 

To do otherwise is to wind up with a drawer full of little imps.

 

And just what is wrong with Imps, little goblin?

 

 

 

N-n-nothing!

 

Did I read Talin right about a potential honorary goblin?

 

Use it for voodoo curse magic when I displease you. I suspect most would be acquired for that purpose.

We have enough on our shelves to paint without them reproducing on their own ::o:

I had a Reaper dream last night. Reaper accidentally(?) revealed all its Stretch goals, some of which were only drawings of possible figures.

 

They added 4 dragons to the core set, which would all fit on 1"x2" inch bases, including a Sea dragon & oriental dragon.

2 man -sized giant squids.Also a pack/swarm of wolves.

 

Add On (LARGE) figures included an air ship made out of a dragon skeleton, a huge sea serpent, hydras with both 8 and 10 heads a tiamat, and Gauth.

There was also a Dragonfly spelljammer/air ship & a steam-punky Zeppelin.

 

I knew I was going to have to add everything but the hydras, cause really who needs that many heads?

Well, Gauth is available for a stretch goal. We have no idea where his sticky note is, but he was confirmed to be on one.

A little pre-housekeeping requests (as I am wishing and hoping):

Please review the forum rules and play nice.

Please make every effort to avoid sequential posting, it makes life so much more difficult for those of us who have to clean up after you.

You can always go back and edit your posts to add the thought that comes to you after you hit that post button.

Inserting large graphics or videos are tough for people on weaker connections (EDIT: phones], please try to limit those.

You can always reply without quoting, or you can edit the quote down to less than all and keep your posts smaller.

Since we have crossed the 300 page mark and are heading into the home stretch, I'd like to say I appreciate the cooperation received this time around. Yall have made this smoother than last year. Please keep at it.

Please be aware of the sequential posts and large quotes, those drive the page count higher faster. I suspect they are worse when you are posting from your phone and not your keyboard.

 

thanks, gang

      Hi there all, I've decided to dive into the deep end with finally trying the scary world of OSL. 😄
       
      Feel I've lost the plot on this ... so any advice on how to proceed with this would be greatly appreciated! (Having fun, though, despite not knowing what the hell I'm doing. 😁)
       
      I'm including a "top down" view, which is where I'm most confuddled. That dark line down his arm which represents the shadow from the staff which sits between the source of light ... it just doesn't look right to me.  🤔
       
      So, I'm all ears for suggestions on improvements!

      Been a minute since I've posted a WIP, so I figure I'd roughly document my current paintjob.

      I'm running a 5e game with a heavy focus on the Shadowfell, and our most recent addition to the party is a native of that realm - a Hexblood or "Hexen" in our game lore. These dark fey are the children of hags - The Mothers Three - and are made from earth, blood, and stolen souls.

      Going for a dark but vibrant paintjob - blue skin, and dark clothing.


      After priming, I like to block in my darkest colors. It makes it easier for me to avoid missing a hard-to-reach spot later, but without worrying too much if I get some paint where it's not supposed to be.  This method also helps me to visualize and plan out my colors better.

      I was instructed to paint her with blue skin, black hair, and dark clothing. I started with the skin. I based with Rich Indigo and plan on working up towards Surf Aqua.  I'm hoping this transition from a more purple-hue in the shadows to a bit of green in the highlight will look interesting, as well as kind of capture the overall color scheme.

      I chose a few other colors to sort of represent that scheme and stippled them over the base - Rich Indigo, Deep Ocean, and Carnival Purple. I eventually want the base to look like rocky terrain, but wanted to avoid neutral greys.
       
      Pure Black for the hair and then set about base coating the rest of the mini.
       
      I wanted to avoid all-black or shades of grey in her outfit so dark greens and purples will be used to keep things more colorful. The tattered robes got a mix of Pure Black and Deep Ocean. The fabric wraps are Dark Elf Shadow - hoping to keep the purpleish greys.

      I also slapped some Deep Ocean on the gemstone on her staff for a pop of color - will reuse this for other gemstone details.
       


      The base got washed in Pure Black - will play around with some drybrushing later. Metal details also got hit with pure black to work up to some NMM silver.
       
      Settled on Ashen Brown for the bone details. The slightly cooler purple hue should help the bones blend in with the rest of the mini.
      Also hoping to use the Ashen Brown to highlight the hair without it looking grey.

      Not much to see so far - just some quick basecoating before work this morning. Hoping she turns out as I'm picturing and not just a garish blob.

      Side note - this sculpt is one of those earlier Bones sculpts that are quite difficult to pick out details.  I'm inevitably going to paint over some random blob and not notice until later.

      Got my Reaper Bones V goodies a bit ago, and slapped some paints onto the Pumkinhead beholder.  I used Citadel Wraithbone primer, contrast paints, and Army Painter Matte varnish and...  months later it remains slightly tacky.  It's not...  awful.  But it's enough that if I put it away in a box with other minis, I'm afraid it won't mix well.  I've left it out in the sun for a day, thinking that might 'bake' the stickiness out of it...  It did not.  
       
      I got Reaper Bones because I figured I could paint, varnish and throw into a box with all my prepainted minis.  Some of my older bones remain slightly tacky too.  But I figured that with this new round of Reaper Bones, they would have got that figured out.  I've painted up the undead giant, but not yet varnished him and I'm afraid to!
       
      I've read the various Reaper Bones help threads, many of which are very old (and one sent me to Facebook, though it looks like it's no longer available.  I don't do social media anymore, so not sure?). 
       
      Does anyone have any advice to help a guy out?  I'm pretty sure I shook my rattlecan varnish adequately.  I do live in western San Francisco and wonder if the humidity (fog, it's often cool and misty regardless of the season) may affect this.  I try to wait until the weather is clear.
       
      What are you doing to keep your Bones stickiness-free?  Any advice you might have would be helpful.

      This one has been on the desk for awhile to receive paint as there was extra on the palette. I decided to finish him off last night. Added highlights to the cloak and skulls. Shaded everything, but the cloak with Army Painter Dark Tone. I didn’t add any highlights or shading beyond the basics as it isn’t a great cast. But, I think it turned out great for the toy box.

      Here's a collection of the second batch of finished minis I have from Bones V.


      Party like a Barty.


       

       
       

       
       

       

       

      Yoho, a Pirate's unlife for me:


       

       
       
      Draugr...I mean, Rune Wights.


       

       

       

       

       

       

      They're not sure why they've been typecast as Thieves:


       
       
      "What do your Elven eyes see?"


       
       
       
      Kobolds, the only thing as dangerous as a Giant Rat in a starter dungeon.
       

       
       
      Under the Sea.
