Hail, Hail, the Remarkable Farkle McBride!

His thanks for another fun Kickstarter ride!

 

Though swearing to show more restraint this year,

He managed to spend as much money, I fear.

 

But happy he is, for the bonesium herds

Are more than he needs or surely deserves.

 

So thanks again Reaper, Merry Christmas to all!

And sweet dreams of the new bones shipping next fall.

For those considering the painting DVD bundle, I noticed that someone wasn't sure who taught the first one. That would be me, actually, and world-class painter Jen Haley. ::): Though I was Reaper's full-time on-staff painter from 2003 to 2011 (and am still a Reaper-ite--I just run the paint department now!) we have always been friendly with Dark Sword and I received permission to work on that DVD for them a couple years back.

 

Jen and I had a great time shooting it and yes, it is both of us talking back and forth, so you get some different ideas from both sides of the fence about techniques and supplies. ::):

 

If you'd considered picking up these DVD's before, this is really a great deal on the set to get them at 50% off on the bundle.

 

Otherwise…on-topic, my husband supported the Kickstarter of course, and we are getting Core, Verocithrax (who has always been one of my favorites), two DDS's, Mashaf, Narthrax…okay I like dragons. Especially Julie Guthrie-sculpted dragons... ::D: Ummm I forget the rest. There was a lot. And yes, we could have waited, since I'm a Reaper employee. But where's the fun in that?!?

I've owned these DVDs for awhile now and can say that the really helped me understand the techniques for miniature painting. I am a bit of a perfectionist and can often get myself so worked up about a project that I avoid starting it. Ann and Jen's DVD really brought home the idea that anything you do to the mini can be fixed and that sometimes things need to look "ugly" at first before they blossom into a work that you are proud of.

 

Their banter was a lot of fun too!

I'm pretty sure I'll get the DVD's. The real question is how badly I want the core expansions, vs. how much I would be willing to wait for these Bones to hit retail so I can pick and choose individual bits. (And how badly I really need a second DDS2. ::P:)

 

It turns out that the answer is "badly enough":

you have to do something to make watching paint dry interesting. That is one reason why these DVDs are superior to youtube tutorials that pop up everywhere.

Actually, watching paint dry can be very --

 

...

 

Never mind.

I just locked in my pledge today. This is what I got:

 

2013 Core Set x1
Mister Bones x1
Lords of Darkness x1
Mouslings x1
Water Elementals x1
Blightfang Dragon x1
Expansion Set 1 x1
Troll Slayer Sophie x1

 

This is how it breaks down - The Mouslings are for a friend (he's our GM for one of our games. The mouslings are actually for his sister, who is also a friend of mine.) The extra Sophie and Mr Bones are for another friend. The Water Elementals are for me, just for me, muahahah! The rest of it is going to be split between me and yet another friend - I was going to pick up Blightfang for myself, but then he said he'd split it - he's attached to the Silver Dragon from Expansion Set 1, and that will mean one big dragon each.

 

Incidentally, I added the Water Elementals when I saw the sculpt. The Lords of Darkness were another add, that was from my friend who's splitting it with me.

I was quite proud of the boys as they saved money for a long time and did extra jobs, etc to be able to take part. I love it when they set goals and work for it.

 

Of course afterward my 10-year old asked, "So will they be here by Christmas?"

 

I said, "Yes, next year."

 

He replied, shocked, "But I'll be eleven by then!" As if I was asking him to wait half his life away for this. LOL
