i'm the opposite. I got the coreset when I should have just gotten the bits of it I wanted, i don't know what i was thinking. I'm not going to use a lot of the minis in the core set, and not going to enjoy painting them, so i'm not going to get as much enjoyment from them as i would those movie tickets. 

 

what i enjoy are the big things. I like to paint them, i hate painting humanoids and tiny figures. I only do them because the hubby uses them for gaming, except even he didn't need the entire core set. I wish i knew what i was thinking 2 years ago when i pledged for it, hindsight is always 20/20

 

the value of the core set is amazing, but it doesn't do much when the figures sit unpainted in a box for years because we don't need them and selling on ebay is a horrible pain in the butt that i don't want to deal with, so they sit there waiting to be chopped up for conversion parts.

 

namely what i'm saying is that not all people get the enjoyment out of it as everyone else, we're all different

 

Same here, which is why I have avoided any of the sets and only went for add ons. (I cheat and try to buy characters from DnDs Icons of the Realms and Pathfinder Battles as they are usually only $2-$6 each, not a ton more than bones)

 

We've got some definite Bones Fatigue here. We weren't going to get Core and we were only going to go in on the really exciting expansions. But then we priced it out and with the bits of Core we wanted we were at $98 or something, but for significantly fewer minis... and we ended up wanting a bunch of the extras. Knowing what I know now, I probably wouldn't have gotten Lost Valley, but that's about it.

 

I can totally see why the roc isn't appealing for display. I'm just excited to have it for tabletop--I need one. Actually, I need at least three... but I got three, so I'm set, right?

Regarding the Roc: My wife found a horizontal line on the underside of the tail piece that almost looks like the piece was set down on an edge while still warm. Unfortunately, this same line shows up on my Roc models, so that seems unlikely. If you have this, it's unlikely that asking Reaper to replace the piece will help.

where did you get your displasy shelves?  They look fantastic. Man I want my Bones.

Those look like Billy bookcases from IKEA, if I had to guess...

 

That's correct, Billy Bookshelves with additional glass shelves at $15 a piece (11 on the left for a total of $250-ish). I have 9 on the right, will probably put a 10th in, I'm waiting to see how all the big pieces stack up

cant it be carved down with a sharp blade or blended into the mode with green stuff, etc to get rid of the crease?

 

regards,


Sanjay

Probably. Well, certainly, if you're good enough. :poke:

 

Worth mentioning, though, to reduce disappointment if people try to get a new version in better condition.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to try migrating the Roc to a clear flight pole, but I suspect I'll need something substantial and rigid. Ideally clear, still. Anyone got any particular suggestions?

 

Tempered glass stir stick (from a Chemistry Supply place)?

Maybe try using an acrylic rod from Amazon? They have a variety of thicknesses.

GW flight stands should be ok. the smaller plastic ones. the larger ones for 40K/forgeworld planes, etc should definately work.

Maybe something like the Litko Blimp flight stand?

Offhand, does anyone remember how many orders total the tracker started with? The earliest number I was able to find said 22,366.

That's the biggest number that I remember but I'm not sure what the number was at the beginning of the EU bundling.

Looks like they are done for the day. Wave 9, 9040 orders remaining.

 

With the 22,366 to start, total of 13,326 orders shipped. 59.6% done.

 

Beginning to look like we will see non Hut/Tree Wave 14 ship before Remaining Wave 2+ with hut/tree. Bummer. ::(:

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.

We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood.

      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
