You should try being married to an enabler. <_<

 

Oh, that looks good!

 

Yes, we're gonna need two! :rolleyes:

 

Sir Cyr wanted the figures that I was less interested in usually. So we ended up with more than I would have on my own for that reason. However, a few we doubled up on.... because we both want to paint boobs. We got an extra demons set. 

 

I do wish I'd picked up the wraiths for my D&D campaign though. Oh well.

I NEED that dark elf queen!

 

Then I need to write something that USES her!

 

I don't remember ANYTHING about the drow in Eberron.

Three main groups and all in Xendrik: Main group are the Vulkoor. There two smaller groups are the Umbragen and the Sulatar. None are the same as those of the Forgotten Realms Drow, but they aren't completely off.

 

Vulkoor = revere scorpions and use the venom to scar themselves ritually

Umbragen = wield umbra(dark) magic to fight off nasty stuff from breaking through and destroying the world.

Sulatar = big fans of fire and are elemental binders

 

Needless to say, much of this set works, but not for the same reasons.

I totally forgot it was almost Feb, and even though we have to wait another month for shipping. I am okay with that. I kept seeing shipping as months away still for some reason. 2018 took its toll on me. Square peg round hole situation in my head.

Honestly, given that normally Reaper lets us know when the last container ships, I was expecting that a lack of such news was indicating a delay.  I'm actually glad to hear that the last container is due to be shipped, it's more positive than no news at all.

Every day closer to Bones arriving I get more anxious about how little space I will have to store it.

 

To be fair I have accepted that I'll need to be putting my pokemon card folders into storage (I gave up collecting a few years ago, basically at the same time I became interested in D&D- but I dont have it in me to sell the cards or anything, so storage boxes it is!) This will free up a few shelves on my bookcases, and I'm less worries about my unpainted minis storage as I'll probably leave them in their original packaging until I paint them; it's painted model storage that's starting to become a bit of a challenge for me...

 

I'm resigned to the fact that my car will not be going into my garage for about a year...

Might as well blame me too. I predicted Bones 4 would be here the day I had to go back to work.

 

We got funding. I'm going back to work, maybe today, maybe Monday. 

 

Unless I was predicting the next funding lapse :devil: I might still be right...

Shh! No next funding lapse, that would NOT go over at all well for ANYBODY!

I got 3 sets of wraiths, for two NOT Ring wraith sets:) Cannot wait to start the conversions:)

This is the bagging that I had been using for Bones 3, they're good size for 28mm minis and the larger are good for some of the giants and such. I use black marker to write the name and number of each one:

................I really should finish bagging my Bones 3 figures. :ph34r:

"The River" has smaller sized bags in decent quantity.  I've been thinking about picking some up along with some other hobby supplies.

Very glad I indulged in the Darkreach expansion, all of these look really good.

Stone Lurker and Cave Spider are so full of character, they go high on my painting list.

Best of all I think, (squinting hard at the screen), that the Dark Elf Queen is separate from her throne. So much versatility! I'll be getting repeats of that when retail happens.

Personally, I am cheap and just go with quart size bags from Big Lots:)

 

The small baggies at the dollar store cost less than quart sizers. ^_^

Now hoping the Brexit gets delayed as well so we won't have customs trouble from the UK to the EU.

I don't mind waiting, I do mind paying extra...but let's stay positive, we might make it!

 

Anyway, I can't wait getting my greedy paws on the minis!

I pledged mainly for expansions and smaller sets of monsters and Argent and the Barge(s).

 

Almost forgot about the large Dragon Turtle, what an awesome creature!

I want it!

I need it!

I have pledged for it!!!

 

With that and the Zombie Shark, swimming will be a challenge from now on.

In case Brexit doesn't get delayed, it would be beneficial to the EU customers to have the packages sent from the US directly. We did pay a 20% fee to cover the import into the UK already, so paying a fee again would hurt. If I get them from the US directly the money I already payed should cover most of the fees I'm due in terms of taxes and customs. If shipping rates are the problem, I would gladly pay that difference, rather than paying taxes on my Bones twice (once for import into UK, which I already did, and once for import into the EU).

 

@Pezler the Polychromatic : How many human or goblin sized miniatures fit into those smaller baggies?

I was half expecting this too, here's hoping that the container ship leaves before Chinese New Year ::(:

As long as they don't have weird angles or things poking everywhere, I was able to fit half a dozen human figures in there easily. I was trying to figure out how many goblins would fit in there, but @buglips*the*goblin put up a fight when I was trying to fit him in the bag headfirst.
