Got my paints that I won!  Reaper shipped them on Friday and they were here on Monday.  Reaper rules!  Most places ship it as slow as possible especially when they are covering shipping. 

 

Anyways here they are:

So I got both the new Dungeon Dwellers paint sets and they threw in a sample of some kind.  Looks like some kind of blue.  I am super excited about getting a sample 

 

Oh and I got another bottle if the Breast Cancer Awareness Pink. 

Very cool. Looks like a really interesting colour assortment. Congrats!

They're definitely a lovely assortment... I've fallen in love with about half of them  already >.>;;;

 

Especially Eldritch Purple and Kobold Scale...

I have yet to get a sample paint in any of my orders... Someday...

 

In other news, my hasslefree order arrived without hassle!

The Cartwright brothers (not Winchesters)

Mystic panda (soon to be a Jedi hamster)

Kat (not Selene from underworld)

Lenore (definitely not Raven from teen Titans)

Made my first Arena Rex order today.  @ub3r_n3rd would be so proud.  

Currently, just two Helleniki figures that make good standins for the main characters in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey.

But I did get the book and Ludus Magnus die.  There may be some starter sets purchased in the next few months.

Wish I could find more than 4 Greek / Roman figures on Reaper... well, 5 if you add in the skeleton, which I will!

I’ve mentioned before that I’m trying to focus less on Kickstarter for my miniature purchases and trying instead to get my hands on minis I’ve had my eye on from different manufacturers through their online stores.

 

Last week I finally pulled the trigger on Heresy Miniatures massive giant Mucklegeet.

One of the biggest, in more ways than one, miniature purchase I’ve made.

Only took 7 days to get here from the UK too!

Realized I was out of blue tack so he’s not assembled properly... or even standing up.

I also forgot to take a pic of the candy and two bonus minis that Heresy also included.

 

I grabbed a few other giant minis I had near at hand and lined them up for a size comparison.

Giants Left to Right.

-Heresy Mucklegeet -Ultraforge-Wizkids Frost-Wizkids Fomorion-Reaper Frost King-Reaper Frost Queen

 

And this brings up a bit of a pet peeve I have with Reaper.

Their giants aren’t very gigantic.

 

We need bigger giants from you Reaper... or at least A bigger giant to see how well it does.

 

 

And I would’ve included a Mantic giant in the pic if I wasn’t still, y’know, waiting for them.

And waiting...

Wow... that guy is flipping huge! He really does put reaper giants to shame.

^Oh hey, my box of big stompy robots came in.  Extra paints not shown in picture.  Additionally, those candies are no more, mwa ha ha ha ha!

 

Sadly, no luck on either the blue or the gorgeous metallic orange sample.

reminds me, I have a secret CAV to get to...

Got the first of a few orders today, namely Wizkids Unpainted figures!!!

 

While I'm not a big fan of the normal "PC" figures I do like the assortment I picked up this  time around. Nice to see the eyeball spell is removable on the fire genasi figure. That would have been a pain to try & paint around. Frost Giant is a very impressive figure. A little shallow on some of the details but they can be overlooked. I think I will replace the secondary axe shaft as it suffers from droopy condition. His main axe thou is a solid piece. Gelatinous Cube is a great mini. I really like the Reaper one (heck I bought one in Boise the night I stayed before RCon, cause I liked the figure (I didn't get it in the KS). I do like the "regular" cube shape of the Nolzur's thou a tad better. Owlbear is awesome!!! Really like the overall shape of that one. Beaky (prepainted out of a Pathfinder set) was my go to owlbear figure but I think this may have surpassed it.

 

Shambling mound is great!! Nice that they didn't include the person getting smothered like the artwork in the 5e book. Silver dragon is a great figure as well, surprised it took me this long to pick it up. Love the versatility on the magic dias configuration. I may use it for the finale in Death House, we shall see.

 

I need to do some painting this weekend!! (got at least 2 weeks for the Shambling Mound)
