Received a pile of resiny goodness from Hammerlot Games today. It's from a Kickstarter I backed quite some time ago. The pandemic has been holding things up for them. But the wait was worth it. This is enough creepy, Egyptian style, undead scenery to practically fill up the better part of a game table.

I won an auction on Ebay a few days ago, and the box arrived at my house today.

 

I got Ral, Lord of Balrogs:

( this picture doesn't do the figure justice; it's HUGE!)

 

and The necromancer's Throne of Bone

as well as a bunch of GW's new ethereal type undead, some scenery/terrain, and a few pretty nice 3D printed demon/undead figures for $20.

 

(The pictures are random ones from the internet)

I know the feeling.  I took pics of my MG Wing Gundam Zero EW Ver.Ka and the desk shot it looks tiny (until you realize the wingspan is almost as wide as my desk light!... Or count the half inch squares on the grid).  Seems small in the "better" photo of it too, for some reason, where it's almost the only thing in said photo...

 Yeah, Ral's a beast alright. Good catch on the ToB - they're hard to find complete anymore.

 

I have "someday" plans to use Ral in an old-school "You Shall Not Pass!" diorama.... He's got that Tolkien-illustration feel.

These suitcases are normally used to transport very expensive surveying equipment...   

But another organisation in my office building have dumped their old equipment, and were going to dump the cases, also. 

And now this one is coming home with me.  

I figure that if I rip out the old foam, install some new foam, and dividers, it would make for a pretty decent mobile paint organiser.

October Reaper order has arrived!

(Anyone know or got the Sugar skull as a 1 piece item? I'm not sure if mine is broke in half or what. Either way I was gonna replace the peg on the plinth anyways. Overall it's a nice piece but the mold line running up the middle of the face/skull is kinda annoying, especially coming from a company known for not making the mold lines so obvious. The detail on the plinth is ehhh ok, it could be sharper. Can you say a certain dwarf will be in a Goodwill Box in the future? :lol:

Problem upon opening the paint set thou & I contribute this to the new holders inside the cases. Nice jumbled mess.

Also as noted in Random, I received the items I'm running for FREERPGDAY this year + the one item(s) I really wanted last night. The owner came by later & gave me the steampunk die.

(the grid is a mousepad neoprene material). The cottage is stiff cardboard, part of their line up that has the Lodge for Rime of the Frostmaiden stuff)

That pic is a Scaleworks hag (not sure which one, possibly a night or green hag). Here are some closer shots of the sprues. There is also a clear medium size base as well.

(I cut of the scene base & one half of the cauldron)

 

1633638329554624824222491847024.jpg

 

Note she has one arm with 3 hand options (4 if you include the plate with something on it that goes on top of the open hand). Material feels like styrene (like a scale model) vs say Bones material, maybe close to Bones Black, but definitely plastic. The body is in 2 halves as is the cauldron. I don't mind this, but there are no locater pins for the halves, so you better be precise on gluing them together. I know for sure I'm not one to do that, so a knock on them for not including these. It's a nice piece, is it worth what Wizkids wants for them, ehhhh I'm gonna say know, espically when there are way cheaper options out there right now, prepainted, Nolzur's, Reaper, 3d prints, etc etc.

 

(These are mostly for the cauldron, but there might be a option for a spell effect. I'm not sure yet.)

I am a little surprised they haven't resolved this issue by now.  It seems like a fairly simple thing to fix with a better design, or to hack a fix for.

I prefer the foam, but even that in the bigger cases has it's issues. I never had any issues with the foam in the paint cases. Egg foam, yes but not the drop the bottles into the holes style. Since, I don't travel with paint, & eventually I'll order a Typhoon paint rack to hold both sets, this shouldn't be issue but for now it's a case of finding the paint & getting them in order. I may put them into the Paint rack app while I'm at it.

Yeah, that doesn't exactly inspire confidence.  I want to order a paint set or two next year once it warms up again, but I know I wouldn't be too happy to open up a sealed case and see that.

Whoo, managed to order something for hubby that's on his list!  Local shop had an MG Astray Red Frame Revised kit in stock, and just had to order it for him as I've been looking for a little while.  Also ordered in a Real Grade GP01-FB for myself. 

 

Kind of wished I could do the pickup option, but such is life, they only offer pickup during regular business hours, so that's kind of hard when you also work the same timeframe.
