Maybe more Bourbon Chocolate will help with the math?

 

Yes!

 

It takes balls to admit a mistake.

Well, yay for me! I just got my shipping notification! I was a 9/10/17 lock-in but mine didn't ship until a few minutes ago. I was worried I'd been set aside until the last container arrived because my order contained multiple of everything on the List of Doom (I ordered for everyone at my FLGS' gaming and painting group, because I had a Wave 1 slot).

So when I get my box, I plan to do a quick unboxing to show everything without getting too elaborate  then probably multiple videos showing all the expansions and add-0ns. I planned on doing it live like @Cyradisdid, but my post on FB had so much negativity, I'll just either do it live on Youtube or pre-record it (all the reviews of the stuff will be pre-recorded.) What do you guys think? Also, here's my list below, in case someone wants something specific to get more attention.

As a side note for those concerned about size and scale of the "miniatures", this is something I put together using information from The Miniatures Page.

 

The data is theirs, the formatting is mine. I have a word file that is formatted to have 8 double sided copies of this on one 8 1/2 x 11 sheet, to cut into cards.

 

Pocket Miniature Scale Cheat Sheet

1/6000 = .27mm         1/600 = 2.7 mm             1/87 = 18.5mm (HO)             54mm = 1/30

1/4800 = .34mm         1/432 = 3.7mm              20mm = 1/80.5                      80mm = 1/20

1/4600 = .35mm         1/300 = 5.4mm              1/76 = 21.2mm (OO)            90mm = 1/18

1/3900 = .41mm         1/285 = 5.6mm              1/72 = 22.4mm                      1/16 = 100.6mm 

1/3000 = .54mm         6mm = 1/268                 25mm = 1/64 (S)                    120mm = 1/13

1/2400 = .67mm         1/220 = 7mm (Z)           28mm = 1/58                         1/9 = 178.9mm

1/1250 = 1.29mm       1/200 = 8mm                30mm = 1/54                               Notes

1/1200 = 1.34mm       10mm = 1/161              1/43.5 = 37mm (O)       Letters in  parenthesis

1/900 = 1.8mm           1/160 = 10.06mm (N)   1/48 = 33.5mm              are  model railroad

2mm = 1/805              1/144 = 11.2mm            40mm = 1/40                 scales. 54mm or 1/30

1/700 = 2.3mm           15mm= 1/107                1/35 = 46mm                 is the common ‘plastic

1/650 = 2.5mm           1/100 = 16.1mm            1/32 = 50.3mm (I)         army man’ scale.

                                                                                                                                

To theoretically convert ratio scales into height scales, and assuming here that height scales measure to "eye height" while ratio scales measure to "head height", divide 1610 by the scale. For example, 1/285 figures are pretty much the same scale as 6mm figures. 1610 / 285 = 5.65. The reverse is also true: to get ratio scale, divide 1610 by the height scale. Thus, 25mm figures are equivalent to 1/64 scale (near 1/72). 1610 / 25 = 64.4 This means that 15mm toy soldiers are probably about 16.5mm tall overall, which makes them closer to 1/110 scale than 1/120. N-gauge figures (1/160) are about 11.25mm tall to the top of the head, which makes them about 10mm scale toy soldiers. To get the magic number, you need the "eye height" of the average man, measured in millimeters. The number we use is 1610 mm (about 5' 3"). Why does the magic number work? Because equivalent height and ratio scales, multiplied, should always result in the same constant (our magic number). In the simplest case, we take real life - 1:1 ratio scale, eye height of 1610 mm - and multiply 1 x 1610 = 1610. Therefore, 1610 is the constant. So what is the magic number for a manufacturer who measures height scale to top of the head, rather than to eye level? It is simply the height of the average man in millimeters - 1730 (5' 8"). All information is from Bill Armintrout at theminiaturespage.com. I am passing this on as information for friends in the hobby, and wish to give appropriate credit.

With a list like that, you may want to live-stream just parts. I just dug into the box and went "oooh!" and it took 40 minutes. I was wallowing in the box with Sir Cyr inventorying and checking fits for EIGHT HOURS. We didn't even snip every sprue!

Probably the same as what is over on the Kickstarter comments page. A select few individuals complaining "I am US wave one and I have not gotten my minis yet", "Reaper PROMISED the 8th", "They said fulfillment would begin in February", and my FAVORITE "They should just ship what they have, as they get it, at no charge to me, AND I want minis for compensation". These people have no idea. I've been in the hobby since '78, and the changes I've seen are nothing short of miraculous.

Be careful about the movie Baba Yaga though. There's a 1970s porn movie by that title. :wacko: I did not expect to see a woman calling herself Baba Yaga wearing leather straps.

If it is the movie I am thinking of, then I am pretty sure it was supposed to be a horror movie.

 

With naked lesbian witches. <_<

I use it to determine what size models and kits I can use from other hobbies. Also it gives me an idea of how far out of scale something might be. For example 1/48 is almost a dead on match for 32mm heroic minis.

Oh certainly that's the sort of thing that's going on. But for Rat's post in particular - that's what I meant.

Well I got great news!  Here it is the day before I'm to get my Bones and I am making this post from the ER.  

Turns out I have a 4mm kidney stone.  I'll be going home tonight so I should be home for my package but it might hamper my unboxing experience.
