Hmm, I'll have to look again, didnt look at the helms:( Oh and damn, I thought I bought a lot of statues:)

 

here's what I have for the trolls, see the hands for the two headed troll, aren't those all right hands? Also, I have two small pieces with the marsh troll, did others get those and if so, where do they go?????trolls.thumb.jpg.0ac2535af6bb4fc128d20e28307f5c87.jpg

 


the two small thigns are 'ears', they go on the sides of his head. The bigger one goes on the back

 

i had two right hands and two left hands for my throwing troll, one of his hands i thought was missing but it was actually stuck behind one of his feet. Do you want pictures of my hands connected to their projectiles?

That would be great. I'll look at him again, maybe it's stuck somewhere:) I do know what I have though are right hands, because they all match up the finger cutouts on rock and pig, and slip right in to right hand, NONE of them go right on left hand:( And thanks for the heads up on the uhh march head:)

Here are my hands glued to their respective projectiles 

 

the fit on the pig is a bit worse than on the rock but they still fit the finger outlines

Nope, mine are no where near that on the left side:( Well, the first issue on my list::o: So far, everything else from trolls and some of the big add on's are going good as well as the paint sets:) Hopefully later this week i'll get to the expansions:)

Everything seems to be here, as far as sets go. My only main issue noticed so far is the aforementioned paint problem. I only ordered set B, but got half of A and half of B. Here's pictures because pictures are more fun! 

 

This box and paints were correct:

20190417_182405.thumb.jpg.b7e438e64ad3775c36521dc47034e8d3.jpg

 

This one had the wrong paints inside the right box (note that the box sas 2B), so open your paint boxes to check if you got the right paints!:

20190417_182319.thumb.jpg.e85bf0aa373e616dc06d6f2f044fb883.jpg

 

Sorcerous mist in the top picture was also mislabeled, but that was simple to fix with sharpie. 

 

Here's something nobody's taken a picture of yet. There's a little packet of promotional flyers:

20190417_181950.thumb.jpg.0b3d9ad328a612335ede0a5c9f3fadb0.jpg

 

Inside are announcement cards (sorry it's sideways):

20190417_182106.thumb.jpg.782e1ceefb600271049f466b265b2388.jpg

OH MY GOSH I JUST NOTICED CLOCKWORK BRASS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAST PAGE :bday: :bday: :bday:

 

EDIT: From @nakos "Unfortunately it was already asked during one of the live Reaper Live if it was the same Clockwork Brass and the answer was that it was not, just happens to be one of the names that Pathfinder wanted.

 

Darn. :down: Well, at least it will be a lovely new metallic color to add to my ever-growing collection of ALL THE SHINY! 

 

Not pictured: a lovely in-depth guide for how to prep and paint Bones minis. It's a great resource for those who may be new to the material or to painting in general. 

 

I've also finished my detailed inventory of Dreadmere, and will post my comments and pictures in a new post (with spoilers so it's not so big). 

 

Huzzah!

I got a complete set of paints! But not the ones I purchased. 

 

One was mispicked and the other is mislabeled. Lol

The poorly assembled reports worry me a bit.

Either assemble it correctly or give me the sprues!

 

 

 

I think I would prefer the sprues. I know my way around glue.

Since Ed Pugh was obviously present and picking orders today the little devilish voice in my head is wondering if any of these mis-picks have been perpetrated by the Reaper in Chief.

Note:  I have a lot of respect for any management team where the upper echelon rolls up their sleeves and pitches in to take on some of the burden of the grunt work.

This is an exacting and somewhat tedious task that the folks at Reaper are engaged in right now and I very much appreciate that it is being done with care as well as speed and note that the reported error rate is extremely low for those things that are actually under Reaper's control right now.

Same here.

If  a person doesn't currently have the skills there are people willing to teach, both at FLGSs and via online tutorials.

It doesn't take long to develop a level of competency that will take your hobbying to a whole new level and open up many more possibilities.

I never got any of the literature that was supposed to have been in the box, and I curse myself for forgetting to ask for them when I meailed them for replacements of my paints.

I haven't noticed if anyone else had this issue, but weren't we supposed to get 50ish 1inch bases, at least that is what they KS image shows. I got 3 large bases and 6 small ones, and yeah I see 3 of each barrel in the pic but only got 2 of them. Everything else seems to be in order.

Dreadmere Expansion! :bday:

 

I apologize ahead of time for the poor lighting, I'll move one of my floor lamps closer for my later pics. 

 

I didn't take pictures of everything, cuz that would be a boatload (ha) of photos. Instead I prioritized things that needed assembly, bigger items and things that were only shown as concept art on the main Kickstarter page. 

 

Spoilered for LOTS O' PICS:

Box flaps! (sorry 2 of them are sideways, I forgot to shake my phone so it would recognize which direction I was holding it):

423 Cart! The spiffy thing is that if I were to drill the holes on the cart a touch bigger, and maybe put a speck of graphite lubricant on the axle, the wheels would totally turn! 
20190417_200232.thumb.jpg.bf0b4362e916c0e417b4c568c3df4f4d.jpg

Assembled:

If I want to actually put stuff in it, I'll either need to put a back/front on it, or else attach a little post on the bottom to make it sit level. Otherwise this happens when I let go:

441 and 442 Giant Leeches. Watch out Forscale! They're all squiggly and squishy-looking! @vulture they look like they were fun to sculpt, and I've shown them to my husband so they will probably show up in our game before too long :wacko::
20190417_203103.thumb.jpg.1884489498027fe5baef399c5199c2d4.jpg

440 Damaris Walmund Duskwarden, 408 Juliana Herbalist, and 422 Bergamot Halfling Rogue. I didn't realize from the Kickstarter picture that Damaris was a lady, I tilted her in the picture so you can maybe see her better. The herbalist is just adorable and I'm really looking forward to painting her! :

My hut, which I've decided to call Clucky, was getting impatient for me to finish checking that all the parts were there and started pecking holes in my cheap tablecloth :lol: (it's just a disposable one I use for game night) :

20190417_204040.thumb.jpg.06dab944d3e347cba1951be668eea984.jpg

 

(every time I move her slightly, the claws pull on the thin plastic and tear it a little. I've tipped her onto her back until she can behave) 

 

Here's an issue I hadn't expected. Something that's changed from the original design is the location of the skeleton dude in the cage. Rather than hanging from the roof near the front porch, there's a peg hole under the back porch:

20190417_204119.thumb.jpg.97bf47d92586abe4b4fb35a1ae653227.jpg

 

Which I thought was cool, until I stuck it in and then tried to stand Clucky upright. Unfortunately, the skeleton's legs hang down too low, and prevent her feet from resting on the floor at all. 

 

With skeleton (two talons and the skeleton's foot are all that are contacting the table (his other leg broke off in the box)):

20190417_204305.thumb.jpg.6e06191d70eb8034bb76396068d28b16.jpg

 

Without skeleton (most of the foot pads are now resting on the table):

20190417_204314.thumb.jpg.dba871e991a71109df4d896da4cbdf19.jpg

 

It might be better after I fix Clucky's feet, but I'm leaning (ha) toward either pinning him to his originally planned location, or leaving him off altogether. 

 

Next I'll do the Fan Favorites, because that's my second smallest box lol. 

 

I hope my picture-heavy posts will be helpful and/or enjoyable, especially for those still waiting. ^_^

 

Huzzah!

THAT! Is NOT COOL!

 

I want to cut the legs off and create a Necromancer's / Vampire Mansion, the gibbet can't hang under the house then.

It should be on the original location.

 

So now I will need to glue that, maybe use a little greenstuff to keep it attached?
