Today is gonna be one of those days when that one mini in Bones 4 would be perfect for tonight's game.

 

Been a lot of those days. Since the very beginning with those giant apes in the core set...

 

There will always be those days. But they will change slightly, from "I don't have the thing yet" to "why didn't I get that set so I could have the thing".

 

Today the 'thing' is the giant serpent statue. That's about the size of a Neothelid (giant psychic worm) given the PCs are 8 levels below the thing, right?

The number of times "oh I've got the perfect mini for that... Oh, wait, its in the kickstarter that hasn't arrived yet"  has happened to me... Is probably outnumbered by the number of times that I say "the prefect mini for that is in the expansion/add on I didn't get." :rolleyes:

We have been there, oh! So many times! :lol:

 

I think Megan is planning on using Mashaaf as a Neothelid, or at least as something in her Eberron game.

 

It has been sitting on her computer desk for a bit less than a week.

One could be said in a upcoming Nolzur's release is a Spectator mini. Perfect! No paying high ebay prices for a ugly pre-painted figure. My players aren't up to it so hopefully it releases about the time they do. 

 

But yes B4 has many gaming goodies. I brought Mal'Drakar to the game tonight to show it off. Players were quite impressed with it. (even unpainted too!)

I will really need a "learn-to-mod" thread to get some eye stalks onto that definetly-not-a-beholder thing from the Darkreach expansion. He is looking fierce, but I like to play with eyebeams as often as possible.

Find a small bead the size you want the eye to be, thin wire, small drill, or pin, super glue, and green stuff. Thread the bead with the wire, twist wire to keep bead in place. The side with the twist is now the back of the eye. Cut wire to desired stalk length. Poke/drill hole in critter where you want the stalk. Insert wire and glue. 

 

Wait a while until glue dries. 

 

Smoosh mixed green stuff over wire and back of eye stalk. Rough up green stuff, use a knife to get smooth eyelids.

In addition to what @Werkrobotwerk suggested, @TaleSpinner has a great thread here that would help:

Reaper sells a "creature components" pack of pewter monster bits with some eye stalks in it.

I saved the spare eye stalks from my beholder for just that purpose... Gonna need to sculpt a few more...

      If anybody here loves cavern terrain and missed DF's first cavern KS KS2, this spring/summer around June DF will have KS6. The theme of KS6 will be Return to the Caverns and should be great fun for those who took part in KS2 or those who are new to DF.

      DF had this to say and showed the below teaser pics

      We're doing for Caverns what Dungeon of Doom did for Dungeons. A whole new batch of fun pieces to enhance your existing collection, but also completely stand-alone.

      Some of the key features:
      New Core Shapes (diagonal wall, convex curves, 1" pieces, etc)
      Passages
      Elevation (with stuff that's impossible on graph paper...)
      Negative Space pieces (and new Terrain Trays)
      Flashy Pieces (Magnets & LEDs)
      Large pieces (4x4 and larger)

      This looks like a very interesting board game with lots of new, fresh ideas and cool artwork (and nice minis - there is even a pledge level for just the minis: around 15 of them for $20 plus shipping):
       
      About this project
       

      It's a harsh but lucrative business being a mercenary out on the edge of civilization. You must explore the harsh wilderness and engage in deep tactical combat, where the decisions you make have an impact not only on your own character, but also the world around you.

      There is always more to unlock and explore in the world of Gloomhaven.

      If you missed the first Gloomhaven Kickstarter (and retail sold out quickly) here is your chance. I backed that game the first time around and could not be happier with the results. Warning ... that box is heavy ...
