There's a fair chance that the portal is gonna be the first thing I paint. The real question is, does it get built with the dogs or not?

 

 

I’m thinking there’s a good chance I might scrap the whole base, drill a hole under the ring, and plunk it down on top of a battery tea-light for a base ; then paint it.

Now that's an idea...Hmm...

Since the whole thing is translucent I'd be lying if I said I hadn't considered finding a way to insert some LED illumination around the ring, myself.

 

But I also know I'm lazy and I have approximately 20 minis to paint (not counting the 20 more I'm getting from Bones 4 in a couple days) and I'm pretty sure it's not going to happen...

 

I bid thee: be not lazy! Not like me! Do something awesome!

Mine had a departure scan just after midnight on the 13th from Commerce city in Colorado. 

 

Knowing that I won't see any more scans until tomorrow hasn't stopped me from occasionally refreshing my tracking page, however. :lol:

 

Huzzah!

Hmm, by the numbers, excluding paints and art book, I come up to $1.83 per miniature.

 

If I used goblin math, I'd have 20 miniatures for $20... so $20/miniature. :blink: Uhm... I'll stick with the regular math.

l think you did your math wrong. 20 minis for $20 is $1/mini

$1? Goblins don't understand that number.

 

In goblin math, there is "20" and "Not 20, but let's round it to 20 just to be safe".

 

Cross species math conversion is not for everyone, most notably if your species does not have fingers and/or toes.

 

Great, now I got to go count how many fingers and toes the core set goblins have. [Hint: it's 20!]

Based on that, I think I'll hold off on unboxing. I'll still probably take a bajillion pictures. 

 

Is this the part where I suggest you could make video tutorials to paint each miniature? :upside:

After about 24hrs of pain I was able to get up and open my package.  I got through the Core Set and everything was there and I was impressed with the overall quality. 

My paint set is not right I ordered Set B and got half of it and half of A.  Guess I'll send them a message once their done with fulfillment.

Two issues with that:

- Not  a good enough painter

- I can't stand my own voice...not sure if I would ever have the confidence to share it with the Interwebz

 

Also. Why does Tuesday come so slowly?

Because Monday is in the way.

Having ordered both paint sets, I'll be very curious how that shakes out...

 

I ordered both paint sets and ot worked out to getting all of the right paints, the boxes just might not have been labeled right.

IT MOVED!!!!!!!!

 

After being scanned  in Denton Friday evening my package seemed to disappear into the system, but as of 9:55 this evening, Central Time I’ll assume, making it just under an hour ago my time, it left Mesquite TX.

Y'all, I don't have a shipping notification. I'm wave 3 and I bet they run out of the Frost Giants before they get to me. It's really ok though, I've turned my anxiety into productivity and painted 5 more Bones figures today...
