Circular holes seem kinda huge ?

Will they hold two or three dropper bottles each ?

 

Optical illusion?  They are sized for Reaper/Vallejo/Army Painter dropper bottles:

So this weekend I traded my old D&D prepaints for an approximately equally valued amount of Bolt Action.

Nissan Micra for scale......

Apparently the old D&D prepaint have a bit of value.
This is more than I will EVER assemble, let alone paint, but I could always trade or sell some in the future.  In the mean time my German army grows, and if I get bored with those there are always Soviets, British, US and Japan to go.  Oh and  there is enough Hungarian boxes to field a good sized army, which I'll probably look at after I get enough Germans done, since they can use some German units.

Ohh, acquisitions, how I've...uhh...well...acquired you.

 

Since the last time, I've since added greatly to the amount of unpainted grey plastic in my possession.

 

Genestealer Cult-related:

  • Seventh Edition Genestealer Cult Codex
  • Ninth Edition Genestealer Cult Codex
  • Start Collecting Genestealer Cults (this is the third box, and the last I intend to buy...of this incarnation).
  • GSC "Clamavus" character
  • GSC "Locus" character
  • GSC "Biophagus" character
  • GSC "Abominant" character
  • GSC "Sanctus" character
  • GSC "Kelermorph" character
  • GSC "Jackal Alphus" character
  • GSC "Atalan Jackals" box (x2)

Now, I just need the Combat Patrol box to hit (I'll need three of those, too), and that should just about wrap up the GSC for me--excepting some purestrain genestealers, that is.  Every cult needs those.  I'm still doing pretty well on the cost per figure, too: $7.83.  That includes vehicles.

 

So, with the cult on hold, on to Reaper acquisitions (which arrived today):

  • 09037: Pure Black (I remembered this time!)
  • 09701: Blood Reds Triad
  • 09732: Clear Brights Triad
  • 09785: Washes Triad
  • 09801: NMM Gold Triad
  • 09805: S'Mores Colors Triad
  • 09806: Seasons Greetings Triad 
  • 09807: Winter Snow Triad
  • 01650: Kobzar Soloveiko, Nightengale (x4)
  • 30049: Skipper and Scuttle
  • 19039: Boss Dice: Glitter Gold (reminds me of a cinnamon schnapps for which I once had a fondness) with an orange Octrox D8 Ranger
  • BONUS: 30051: 2022 Leprechaun
  • BONUS: 77327: Hell Cat (x2)
  • BONUS: 77360: Mr. Bones (With Lantern)

By the gods, that's a haul and a half...  You'll be assembling for the next six months...

Because I haven't gotten enough Bolt Action lately ...  😉

 

Actually, an order from the store, mostly for Konflikt '47 stuff came in.

So the pages I'd ordered ages ago for Star War Legion.  They finally came in.
At the bottom is a medium Panzermech for the Germans.  It has jump! 
On the right I have a unit of heavy infantry.  Up top in the middle are a couple of LMG troops for that unit. The remaining 2 are for BA itself.  The Panzer I is the wee tiny panzer they had starting out.... it looks like a kiddy car compared to the Jagdtiger.

And an artillery piece.  the SiG33 15cm Howitzer.

Easter eggs, each filled with a fossil. I of course had to peek. Some fun stuff in there, the kid is going to be stoked! 
 

Great excuse to pick up a piece for my collection too. Petrified wood round with fungal rot. About 11” diameter. 🤩

Got a big box of soft steel rods in different diameters, today. I also got a heap of lathe tools yesterday. 

Maybe I should go out into the garage and try making something?

 

But then again, I have this new jigsaw puzzle I want to try...    

 

And the first 3 Dirty Jobs DVD collections... 

 

Or finish unpacking and start testing the Sonic Phrozen Mini 8K printer that also arrived today...

Picked up a few stls off MMF this morning:

 

Earth Mephits aka Mud Mephits for Witchlight (Saturday, so glad these print up fast!, under 2 hrs).

 

I've printed up Duncan's air mephits for anther adventure & they are great minis, so I have no doubts these will be just as good.

For my all or 90% all female pregens ReaperCon adventure "Curse of Wardenwood", I figured the only male character in the group had to be this guy, he is the rogue:

 

Punga Miniatures:

 

720X720-welcome5.jpg

 

Also, the half-orc barbarian pregen also from Punga:

 

720X720-welcome1.jpg

 

Finally picked up a banner, as one of my adventures I gave one of the pregens, a magical war banner to help the party in the fight vs the forces of evil:

 

Vae Victis

 

720X720-01.jpg

 

Finally, in the 3d print section, @PaganMegan posted a hag & it reminded me I needed a unique looking hag for a upcoming adventure, but the one she posted while very cool, wasn't what I wanted, so I went with a different sculpt but from the same sculptor, Tytantroll:

 

720X720-clothed-ancient-witch.jpg

 

This one comes in 2 version, unclothed & this one. I think the unclothed one doesn't come with manacles, as I didn't see any shots without them, but after a bit, I thought of why she has them on, so in the end, I went with this one.

Two acquisitions to report.  The first is a Reaper DHL order, which puts my collection to a complete run of figs up to RPR 3700.  The second was a Lincoln Electric MIG welder which will be used for body work on the Sunbeam Alpine I'm currently restoring - once it finally warms up around here.

So, I wasn't going to get any of the heavy panzermechs for Konflikt '47 right away, because they are silly expensive since they are metal and resin.

Then I heard the company was raising their metal and resin prices April 1st due to material prices increasing.

So happened to have to drive to a town an hour from here, and it happens to have a very nice hobby store that carries Bolt Action and Konflikt....

Ah, the ole "raise prices later" way to acquire things. :poke:

 

Curious are the 2 systems compatible with each other (same company, same rules - different rules)?

 

Ordered a couple miniature/hobby orders earlier this week but waiting for them to arrive before I show them off. I did do a order with Victoria Miniatures this morning:

 

UKRAINE-1_51720a36-b4b3-47ac-ac6c-5a1b66

 

(They are on her webstore & you can either get it as a physical resin miniature or as a stl miniature. I went with the stl option.)
