Seems to be the norm with all delivery services these days. At least here.

I hate it when they tell me I have to sign for it, and I try to digitially sign for it so I don't have to wait, and of course that never works so I have to wait around all day and then the only notice is a soft *thump* on the porch.  Except, of course, for the one time I assumed it was going to be like all the other times but because I didn't spend all day waiting around then that time was the time they really actually needed somebody to sign for it.

Yeah, I've literally gotten emails from UPS saying they tried to deliver but I wasn't  home, when I was in fact there all day.

So I checked out the turn around video of the Greek Odyssey expansion that they posted recently and am super happy the Cyclops comes with a sheep he can hold. I've got a bunch of much smaller Ral Partha Hyksos javelineers that kind of look like little shirtless Greek guys, and I think one of them would fit nicely under that sheep mini. They're lead (I'll wear PPE when working with them, no worries) so one should be flexible enough to make it look like someone is hanging from the bottom of the sheep. So it looks like I'll be doing a Polyphemus versus Odysseus diorama sometime in the future. I'll have to figure out a way to make him look like he just got stabbed in his eye though.

Anyone else mentally preparing for campaigns to use all these minis in?

I'm running Skulls and Shackles as soon as we can play in person again. It's a Pathfinder pirate campaign and I plan to make heavy use of deep depths, brinewind, Valfuryx, the sirens, goroloth, the ballistae, the pirate ship, and anything else I can slot into the campaign 😄

I'm trying to think of something to justify all of these different vampires and ghouls.  Guess I need a good gothic adventure soon.

 

Yep. I've got two active campaigns with my main group of players. In the fantasy campaign I'm gently herding them towards the shore where they'll have a chance to steal a pirate ship and fight a bunch of stuff from the Dark Depths Expansion. And in my sci-fi campaign they've been kidnapped by a time travelling, dimension shifting, sentient spaceship that's bat-crap insane and uses them to gather resources (kidnapped for the second time I might add, they're not the brightest group ever). I should be able to use literally every single part of Bones V that I ordered in that campaign at some point.

My mind is more set on being a volunteer GM at the FLGS and have some "Encounter of the Week" type of one shot adventures.

I'm having a hard time doing that since we've been online so long now :(

Nope I just paint them haha

 

My husband uses them in games, though no idea when he will be able to have a game in person again, plus most of his group has moved away now

I don't play the games, but I do have "a few" projects.

And it seems I do have projects fitting for Undead, Sea stuff, Monsters, Greeks etc etc...

What a coincidence.

      Anthropomorphic animals are not really my cup of tea, but these look nicely done.  I imagine someone here will be interested.

      A message from Secret Weapon:
       
      Big news time everyone!
      As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support.
      BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted.
      That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign.
      So, what are we going to do to fix this for you?
      We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next:
      1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer.
      2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up.
      3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options
      Americas, Europe (NOT UK)
      AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific
      United Kingdom (NOT Europe)
      4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available.
      There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide.

      DCC Dying Earth
       
      A DCC RPG boxed set, officially licensed by the estate of Jack Vance. Adventure with IOUN Stones and The Excellent Prismatic Spray!
       





       
      Yikes, the resolution did not hold. I tried. Just click the link lol.
       
       
      Thinking about doing this one; while I found Vance kinda torturous to read, the world is fantastically fun. And I think it'd work really well with the good things I've heard about DCC, so I could give that a try in general.
