..... whelp, that post was literally right above my original reply to it. Apparently I had that vague plan for a reason. In my defence, I DID have surgery like a week ago and haven't taken my ADHD meds at all since then, which is a perfectly good reason to totally have forgotten that. Thanks dude, I appreicate it.

Things that I was not intending to do at 2 o'clock in the morning; buy the Dark Depths expansion

Things I ended up doing at 2 o'clock in the morning; buying the Dark Depths expansion

 

Dark Depths was one of the first expansions in the campaign that really jumped out at me - I adored it from the beginning, though I think it got a bit of flack (at least on the KS page) when it was announced for being mostly fish or fish people in the first part. And then as the campaign continued, I just ended up prioritizing things I considered to be "classical" or more practical DnD things and it got left behind.

 

But everyone is definitely right that it's overstocked and way undervalue for what it's in. I think it's got more big monsters in it than Greek Odyssey and GO is like 75% big monsters! I don't intend to run a lot of underwater stuff (and despite how nice the pirate ship is, I think I am ultimately leaving it) but honestly most of them can be shoreline encounters and there are a few in there like the Dunkleosteus that would make good spiritual guardians of shrines or something, to mix it up.

 

Also that sea giant. :wub: Like, who wouldn't, really?

Ooooo, the number of Buglips figures has reached near max order capacity.    

 

If Reaper is super brilliant, they'll use a super smelly plastic just on those figures to really convey the Goblininess of it.

Its funny how people prioritize stuff.   As ppl know,  for me it's

 

1) big epic monsters first

2) rare/uncommon monsters that don't have models

3) stuff that may be fun to paint/nice model

4) stuff worth selling to cover Kickstarter costs

 

Depths was instant must have since it met criteria 2 with the eye of the deep

 

Greek met criteria 2 and 3 due to the bronze golem and cloud giant. Storm giant is 3.

 

The 5 main dragons were 3 but now maybe 3/4. The kaiju is 4

 

The catoblepas was a very unique situation. I don't believe any older models of it were made and even if ral partha had one its metal and much smaller scale so that was  a must.  it should be 2 but its so cool it kinda belongs in 1 even though it's not massive :D

Good to see the husband is the 3rd priority :)

Haha he puts himself there too. He rarely games in person and can usually find stand in minis for models he doesn't have, so things to use for actual gaming are pretty low on the list

Husband made the list; he is thankful just to be there.

I decided to tally up the money I spent vs the amount of minis I'm getting. Including the pirate ship as 1 mini, I'm spending a grand total of $1.81 per mini, including shipping :wow:

I'll probably get hit with VAT and such before actually getting my stuff, but its still a pretty good deal :)

Scratch-N-Sniff Buglips?

 

That's just asking for trouble and one more reason why he comes with a cancer warning in California.
