Some people do care to watch, but due to responsibilities they may not be able to take the time to do so. Thank you very much for the new thread, it's very helpful!


Yes forgive me, I should have worded that differently. >.<
I will try my best to do notes for the show as best I can, as it is a lot of multi-tasking keeping up with chat, talking/listening, notes and so forth. I might even just save it for Friday morning, and go watch the episode again on the V.O.D's Or just link the V.O.D with a summary of what happened.

I'm down to 'huhn, do I REALLY want that' on my list; mostly for niche stuff like the Daimyo expansion and Chronoscope, where there's stuff I am not very interested in mixed in with stuff I do want/have a use for.

I did get a pair of Bigby's Expressive Single Digit though, because that appeals to my twisted sense of humour. >.>

Daimyo, I would have got if not for the dino-people. I don't mind the existing ones, just not those. I figured, eh I wanna support Reaper in retail sales, so that expansion will be one I'll look for. That & the Chronoscope one as well. There is a bunch of things in that one I'll look for in retail as well, like the big minis. Love the Cthulhu like creature, along with the other mini on the same page.

I have  a love hate relationship with chronoscope expansions.
They lack of focus always makes me not get them. I feel they would work better if it was broken down into encounters. 

Lets go through the 3 parts of the Chronoscope expansion and my thoughts on it.

Part 1: Victorian Steampunk and Pulp: 

  • I absolutely love the figures. I really  enjoy the variety of non combat pose and the detailed dresses. Santa doesn't really fit, but its Santa.


Part 2: Post apocalypse and Lovecraft:

  • First off, modern zombies. A good addition to the Reaper catalogue. But I am not interested in them, I would have preferred if they were victorian or more of a village folk (for modern settings it was part of a village festival or a folk group).
  • Like the civilians, not really interested in the military ones. Still have no real use for them and the sculpts don't jump out to me (apart from the one that reminds me of Shaggy and the farmer)
  • Super mutants, not really my jam. That one pose drawing his pistole is nice. 
  • Trailer, I don't do modern. Still there are a couple of fun ways this can be used. A good addition to the reaper catalogue.
  • Lovecraft monsters: the devil one is nice. I really like it. The tentacles have a nice scenic base that works for both modern and victorian. But tentacle blob is not really my cup of tea.

Part 3: Robots

  • Don't like the half skeletons and half blocks design. But that is a personal preference.
  • Large robots: prefer the more fluid design, but still not my cup of tea.

... are those peanut butter cups on Buglips's back?

 

 

While I now can't unsee that, I think the intent is gold coins with ridged edges.  ::):

The original idea was to try and make a compromise between "maybe they are coins" and "but maybe they are paint lids".  If it was necessary to choose one or the other, I said go with coins because while paint pots would be funnier it would be best to make it a useful piece for people who are not in on the joke.  So they are theoretically coins, theoretically paint pot lids, and theoretically peanut butter cups. Good loot either way, tbh.

Could also sand down the ridges and make them cheese wheels.

      Help a small bakeshop survive these COVID days....
       
      https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/sweet-alfas-cookbook/x/10803452#/
       
      Small Town Family Bake Shop at a Critical Point
      Sweet Alfas Bake Shop & Kitchen has been serving the Elizabeth, Parker & Aurora communities for 3 years. Melissa & Luigi Casaretto’s  journey began in 2012 as a fundraiser selling Peruvian Alfajores for their daughter’s dance event. It eventually flourished into a successful online cookie bakery. In 2017 they bought the kitchen they used to rent in Elizabeth, Colorado and Sweet Alfas was finally a brick and mortar shop.

      In 2020, the Covid-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic started to take shape and as early as February we started to see our sales dipping. We improvised and started serving curbside and specialty meals to survive. Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to save the bake shop and kitchen after all. Our business survives primarily on our wholesale efforts and our biggest accounts had to cut their orders by 50%. After reviewing our options we had no choice but to temporarily close and halt our 5 person operation.

      After mulling over what to do next, we decided we were not giving up without a fight. In order to raise funds we are opening our kitchen publicly to the world in the shape of a bakery and kitchen cookbook(as well as other unique perks we are offering).  All of our secrets, techniques and ideas will now be available in your own home. With your help we can catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through. 
      In 2019 our community stepped up and helped us fund a new mixer when we were struggling. While we appreciated the community effort and love our community we have always wanted to give back. So instead of asking for handouts, we are asking you to help us fund a 100 page cookbook with detailed recipes and photography. 
      What We Need & What You Get
      By purchasing our cookbook you can help us catch up on our lease, payroll, supplies and help navigate these new waters we are traveling through with some expansion of our kitchen, bakery and staff.

      You’ll notice we have some tiered packages. We are not only going to offer our cookbook, we are going to include shirts, hoodies, master class videos and gift cards.

      Our goal is $20,000 which is what we were asking for from the SBA. At this time we’ve received very little confirmation from the SBA about our loan. So instead of asking for forgivable money, we want to fund a cookbook for our most loyal customers and supporters. We would rather earn it and show you some love back.
      The Impact
      We have always wanted to make a cookbook and now this opportunity has forced our hand. So on the positive side, we see a win/win situation. We can provide something special globally and save our local bakery, maintain our wholesale accounts in Parker and Aurora, keep our employees and remain in Elizabeth, CO.
      Many of our customers across the US can not try some of our more traditional baked goods because it’s expensive to ship them. So this gives everyone a chance to try our baked goods.  They say restaurants don’t survive after a year of being in business. We’ve survived 3 years and were finally making the right strides.  We’re gonna be here for a very long time and we may even continue pressing cookbooks in the future. Risks & Challenges
      This will not be a short order(pun intended). We will have a long road ahead of us and we are still not in the clear from everything happening globally during this pandemic.
      We will use the funds to catch up and reinvent ourselves(a 3rd time) in order to adjust to the "new normal" of Covid-19. We are hoping to add a fryer and overhead extinguishing system to provide some fried goods, donuts and churros.  We will need to negotiate with debt collectors, property managers and our accounts. We will need to heavily market this cookbook and our bakery.  Melissa and I both come from extremely competitive marketing and sales backgrounds in the tech industry. We are capable of overcoming these hurdles and getting Sweet Alfas back on the map.  Other Ways You Can Help
      We are all in a crisis, not just businesses. Many people are out of work, struggling to pay their bills. We understand and wish the best for you and your families. There are non-monetary ways to help us out.
      Tell your siblings, parents, best friends and coworkers about this campaign. You can share our campaign on facebook and more using the Indiegogo share tools!

      Unfortunately, all rewards are physical/US Only right now.
      Also, they've chosen 'Flexible funding', but since they're at 45% already, with 29 days left, they have a decent chance of making it. 
       
      Me?
      I'm in it for $5(no perk pledge) because they make cookies...

      So here's Ettinstone, a tile system that should work with most other 25mm tile systems. It's magnetic, double sided, versatile, and super easy to build with. Also it's roughly about $1.20 per 2x2 tile before shipping at the lowest level, and about $1.00 per tile at the highest level. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1215751272/ettinstone/
       

       
      The tiles are made in ABS plastic, so it won't break easily either. :)
       
      The Gallant Goblin made a video that really shows off how quick it is to assemble, disassemble, and reassemble with this set, as well as showing how well it works with both Warlock and Dwarven Forge tiles. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qvehn-WzpjU
       
      Stretch goals at $18k and $26k for half walls(2x1") and quarter walls(2x0.5", AKA pillars/wall corners).
