They were in the scratch and dent section. Which the store clearances out now to move product that has been stored for a while. I'm okay with ripped/torn stickers for cheaper models. I already removed the damaged labels from both Ebonwrath and Pirates. I want to decorate, but I'm not sure how (outside the obvious platypus) ^__^.

'Scratch and Dent' Is ,quite frankly', nonexistent here. There's no mini painting culture where I live, and even in the Big City there's barely any figures in the stores. It was pure luck that I had stumbled over a box in the one store that used to have Reaper and Ral Partha miniatures, but those things had literally been there since the '90's. It was a one-off bit of good luck that will never be repeated here again. But congratulations on the great find, it's always awesome to come across great figures. ::D: ::D:

Yea, I've got like 2 shops within 50 miles that sell gaming/mini related stuff, and as far as I know they don't do clearance or scratch and dent ever. And they primarily carry GW and Privateer Press figures, with a smattering of Malifaux. Practically all my gaming stuff is bought online.

 Eh, me and Dilvish have long since cleaned out anything of real interest as far as old stock at our local store (which still sells it for original sticker price), and the only place that does discounted merch around here is the local comic shop - which has a general 25-50%-off bargain bin that's is basically their dump site for anything gaming-related, from old supplements of unpopular rpgs to Flames of War units and old GW figures from two editions ago. Most of which they couldn't get rid of if they made it 75% off.

I dunno, 50% off GW figures puts them in line with other companies. I could see myself grabbing stuff then. Especially Tomb Kings...

I haven't been to that comic shop in a while, but I'm pretty sure it's just blister packs in that sale bin.

Got these really neat lapel pins from an Etsy shop the other day. They're little Captain America shields with a "No, You Move" banner on them.

 

Thanks to ReaperBryan and his SWMBO, for that!

Stock photo (Queen Penguin Productions). They're already put away in my SWMBO's jewelry drawer, and I'm not delving THAT dungeon. Worse than ToH, it is.

      Back when the Bones 4 Kickstarter was running, when the Giant Rhinoceros Beetle was revealed in the Fan Favorites set, someone posted this photo of a Frog riding a Beetle to the Enthusiasm Thread, and I knew it was a conversion I would eventually want to try.  I have an extensive Frog Army, and I wanted such a figure to be a Leader or Hero for my forces. 

       
      I had the pieces I needed at hand; the Bones Black "Giant Rhinoceros Beetle", and my rider - for which i  had decided to use the Bones "Mudcroak" Squog figure.
       


       
      As I looked at Mudcroak, I knew I would have to separate him from his base, but I knew there was no way I could remove all those little toes from the base without damaging them.  So, right off the bat I made the decision to just remove his feet along with the base, with the plan that I would then resculpted them with greenstuff directly onto the beetle's back once I had the frog glued in place.
       
      Here's a test fit, with the frog held in place with blue-tac.
       
      That's all for right now.

      Ok, this may have been asked before and I have a terrible memory and I could not find a straight answer in the FAQ.

      The white material vs the slightly less white material (not to be confused with bones black)
      I have a what is essentially a bucket of bones miniatures from all 4 kickstarters.  Im a slow painter.  
      I decided to pick a few out to paint.  I painted Almaran the gold and noticed his head was deformed.  replaced it
      Next I tried Durok the dwarf ranger and I noticed his right side did not mold correctly.  Nothing I could do about it but its fine not complaining.
      Ive noticed most of my bones 4 that had the new grey material have not had these sort of issues.
      I would show pics but I dont wanna...

      My question is has this issue been fixed for the older bones miniatures,  Are they being cast in this new grey material?

      This was a quick, and fun, paint - I have a soft spot for the translucent figures - painted up as a 'gift' from an NPC to my players. Just open the box for help....

      I think most GM's can sympathise, sometimes your players just get lucky going through a dungeon. Maybe the dice are on their side or maybe they're just a bunch of min/maxing little murder hobos that have destroyed everything in their path. What you need is one final encounter, one last way to try and salvage at least some of your pride and show them that they're not quite as in control as they think they are. 
       
      There's a room. It's certainly locked and probably warded and what player can resist that? Once they force their way the find this ancient stone circle. There's some sort of mossy ooze growing on its base, but the players attention is drawn to the softly pulsing light from the giant cabochon jewels set as eyes in the carved dragon heads. How can they resist?
       
      A massive thanks to @TaleSpinner for sculpting such an awesome piece, it was a pleasure to paint!
       

       

       

       

       
      This is when you turn around the portal What comes out of it? Not sure, but its certainly something draconic, maybe even something with 5 heads
       

       

       

       

       


       

       
      Thanks for looking, all comments and criticisms are gratefully received. Hope you liked it.
