I like the mouse hero. Also what exactly is the last animal mini?

 

It is listed as a hamster on their website. I might try to paint it up as a SFW Tanuki, given the size and general "fluffyness". Traditional Japanese depictions of Tanuki are DEFINITELY NSFW in  the west. Probably why Reaper did a "badger" as one of the Yokai in Bones 5.

I went into the local Walmart today and investigated their craft paint section.  Of course they carried Plaid, but it was all the 50¢ Apple Barrel stuff.  I've never used it, but I've heard it is 50¢ for a reason so I checked out the next rack and found some DecoArt Americana. 

 

 Apple Barrel is crap. Doesn't cover well, doesn't thin well. Use it for washing terrain.

The DecoArt is definitely serviceable, though I'm personally a bigger fan of Delta Ceramcoat.

Stopped at Hobby Lobby, was hoping for some more 12" plywood rounds as they great for vignet set pieces for a games and some larger terrain pieces, but they were out...ended up with a few 14" ones though

Just ordered this:

 

044-max-manus-eng_900x.thumb.png.16d829a54fd1d344b10f56ad40ea6cd0.png

 

I wanted Captain Larsen ('Shetland Larsen' ) and Commander Trond Bolle from the Navy Jeagers(Killed by IED in 2010) but they were sold out. 

 

For the more fantasy interested, they have a 'Steadfast Tin Soldier', decked out in correct era Danish uniform, with a paper boat made from a copy of a 1838 Danish newspaper...   

 

A bit miffed that they don't have Gunnar 'The Chin' Sønsteby, but one can always hope they add him soon.

Wave 2 from the Infinity Defiance KS came in today.

I "may" have gone a bit overboard on this one.....

20210816_IMG_2211.jpg.eccfd1e45dfe370b446849bae07ffc18.jpg

So that's the two additional expansion to the game on the left.  And then they had these reinforcement packs for every faction, to flush them out, with what looks like 7+ figures in each.

And the bonus 4 figs for the platinum pledge.  And the really cool hex dice tray.

 

 

I should probably open the core box soon and take a look at the rules.....I've had it for something like a year.....

Foam from Games Plus has been ordered!! I ended up ordering:

5 1.5 inch trays

2 2 inch trays

2 3 inch trays.

 

I don't think I'll use all of them but just in case. Again, trays were around 3 or 4 bucks more then regular price, but the speed I get 'em totally makes up for it, tomorrow sometime.

 

Also ordered Starfinder "Critical Success" roll cards & some oddball bottle koozies.

Box of goodies from Torchlight has come in!

^Didn't realize the 30 pack of sanding strips was for the tools I don't have (but plan on getting eventually) as they're a touch longer, but world isn't going to end.  Yup, I got a third tool handle, that way I can have one with a scribing bit, one with the scribing needle, and one with the carving knife (that works rather well as a seam line scraper).

 

Zaku 1 is for my NCR Veteran Ranger conversion idea, and Gohan is for hubby (but I have a slight suspicion he may want me to assemble it for him).

Oh yeah, and as for the thing in the tube?  I've always wanted a scale ruler...

Last minis for RCon & Saturday game arrived today! I went with prepainted for the RCon ones, as I didn't think I'd get to these in time:

 

Chimera (Pathfinder Legendary Adventures)

Cockatrice (D&D Rage of Demons - I have to assemble these, mini-clear post-base) x2

Sea Hag (Monster Menagerie II - I have a painted Reaper, but I've looked high & low in my hobby room & garage & she is no where to be found.....:down:)

Death Dog (Monster Menagerie III)

 

Which are for RCon & which are for the home game, not telling!!! ::D:

The Tabletop Workshop Medieval Chapel I ordered showed up today, a full week earlier than the expected time for international shipping.

 

It needs some more cleanup than the videos of it that I'd seen, but pushing the pieces together looked good. There's more vents inside and they really should have included some covers for the ends of it where the walls come together because the end pieces have holes in them for it, and the interiors of it are rather well done, so I want access to those and that might be some issues since I'm considering just gluing the roof together and leaving the rest able to disassemble for interior access with games because it's to deep to just have the roof removable and the floor and walls interlock

Here I thought I was done with RCon figs.....

 

While shading out a pregen PC mini this morning I come to realize the figure was missing her left arm! Apparently, it was a clear piece as it had a transparent spell effect in her hand, so order with one of the fast places I know for hobby stuff this morning:

 

Wizkids Wave 6 female wizard

(hmmm I might have lucked out on this one, as I went to find the image on that site & it didn't come up. This one is getting harder to find as there was nothing showing on the Bay of E) & to round out the order (I hate just ordering 1 item):

Wave 15 Pathfinder Deep Cuts Halfling Monk

& The Army Painter mixing balls

Also last night at the FLGS before the Saltmarsh game, I picked up the following:

Acquisitions!

 

I broke down on Sunday and ordered a couple things from Game Envy!

 

20210819_180737.jpg.fd5df088b5a0e1ba789f31848a880551.jpg

 

Standard 10 Rack (whatever they call it), with a large device holder (my tablets are 10" varieties) in back and red sides.

 

This is a bit over-engineered, and is a fair pain to put together.  I ended up breaking the tab off one of the side supports during the initial setup.  I also ended up over-tightening a couple screws initially. Both issues addressed shortly after.  Hopefully the glue will hold on the tab.

 

20210819_180830.jpg.f79d7863f96f26c4e6e7c8de8a1651fb.jpg

 

Standard Hobby Holder with the larger handle.  I turned it "upside down" as that feels more natural to me.  We'll see if it stays that way.

 

I was pleased to note that the Holder fits well with caps from my preferred soda-type beverage.  I might decide to get the ergonomic holder later after I see how this works.
