The picture looks good.  How would you judge the quality and detail of the minis compared to various Reaper townsfolk?

 

They have the typical Wizkids pros and cons. More realistic proportions and fine details. But so fine that any layer of paint might hide them, particularly the facial features. The eyes are very small, and for some of them, the primer coated mouths are virtually nonexistent.

 

Mold lines are present, but workable.

 

A nice touch is the forge that has an included functional LED light (with a tiny on-off button) under a clear plastic ember-coal pile. But I'm wondering why they used grayish-white plastic instead of a colored yellow-orange like shown on the box.

An unexpected acquisition.

 

Yesterday on Crow's Nest, my name got drawn for one of the special "Crow's Nest" Pokey Tools (~value $7US)

 

This morning, I get an automated message saying they can no longer ship them outside the US 😥, so I got a $30US gift certificate instead. 🤑

 

Whatever the December promos are, they suddenly got far more interesting.

Oof, that's sad to hear, but at least they gave a really nice perk to replace it.

I have been going EVEN MORE NUTS than usual. I ordered a bunch of stuff from Blick & Hobby Lobby to replace things that I thought I had left in Texas:

That is Blick's own Black & White paint with an assortment of bristle brushes & Krylon Workable Fixative next to Hobby Lobby sisal rope & Jewelry Shoppe head pins from Shortly before the stuff arrived, I found all the left-in-Texas stuff in one of the moving boxes...sigh.

 

Then breaking my no new minis pledge, I sent out orders to Reaper & Noble Knight. 

The Noble Knight order consisted of a bunch of Spellcrow thingies:

Black Friday got me bad this year (And it isn't technically here yet!).

 

Been on a bit of a Mailfaux binge, from one place I picked up:-

 

Rasputina's Crew,

Wacky Necromancers,

Misaki's Crew,

Marcus's Crew,

Basse's Crew,

Big Game Hunters,

Smugglers.

 

And then from Wyrd themselves I got:-

 

Brine and Bones,

The Wild Ones,

Miss Feasance,

Miss Fire,

Miss Anne Thrope,

Miss Hapen.

 

At least I'm all caught up on Malifaux stuff, at least until I can find Lord Cooper available separately.

Continuing along with my present burst of enthusiastic spending, yesterday I received a package from Noble knight with some Zealot miniatures.

Ogres Hodor,  Little Joe, Stumps, & Gun-Tar PLUS their Minotaur Herd Shrine. I had never heard of Zealot before, but they look quite nice & suitably whimsical:

Today Blink came through.

Blick Graphite Pencil Assortment (2)

Blick Drawing Pad 9" X 12" (2)

Rolling Pin Non Stick

Activa Sculpting Clay Roller

Das Idea Mix (air dry clay X 2)

These are meant for making, documenting, & planning my Swamp ideas. OH BABY!

 Picked up another Really Useful Box last night.

Now all the stacks of blisters of Ral Partha 2nd Ed. AD&D minis that were dangerously close to falling over and getting wrecked are packed away safely. Still need another box, though.

Once I find another job again, I think I'm gonna pick up another set of the little drawers to house my plastic and resin minis.
