Anyone else dreading a bit the incoming shipment of B5? Excited certainly, but a little "what have I done" mixed in...

 

My wife keeps thinking I'm joking when I say it's gonna arrive on a pallet.

I'm mostly curious just how small of a box mine will be in.  Hopefully I can at least make it a hat for a moment or two!

I'm mildly dreading the assembly process. I just want to paint and play with them, I'm tired of gluing things together...

 

I'm mostly just irritated because I'm having a bit of trouble gluing some metal miniatures. For the life of me I can't get the arms on a couple of them to stick.

I am.

 

It's part of the anticipation fun.

How... small?

 

Because of the pirate ship, this will be the largest Reaper box I've ever had. And the previous ones were already pretty sizable.

 

I'll be curious to see the total shipping weight.

Absolutely.

 

I went into this thinking I would just order a few things here or there...And then Reaper pulled out all the stops and I just had to keep adding, and adding, and adding...Next thing you know, what I anticipated would be a relatively small order became very "not small."

You need to be pinning, my friend.

 

Every time a Bones fulfillment arrives I’m very excited until I begin the unboxing process and the shipment overtakes my massive gaming table. Then the regret sets in as I pour through the order, sorting and organizing by my RPG standards. Of course, I also have to be checking to make sure everything is intact and that no parts are missing. It takes days, but I love/hate it.

Yes, a little bit. 

Mine is due to just recently moving and getting a better idea of exactly how much hobby stuff I have. If the old joke about not dying until your last mini is painted is even slightly true, I'm already functionally immortal.

Not exactly "dread", because I know it won't take up as much space as everyone thinks.  I got most of B1 and B4, and 95% of it fits in a medium size tub.  What's worrying me is right now  is I can't find the correct sized plastic storage anywhere (except amazon where they are 4x the normal price) and using something different, like a cardboard box makes me feel all OCD and irritated.

Nothing reminds you more how ridiculous the hoard has gotten than a move.

      "This Kickstarter marks the release of our two newest books in the Dungeon Craft series "Fallen Kingdom & Jungles of Dread". Both books have nearly 1,000 jungle-themed pieces in them, which allow DMs to build custom interactive maps in a brand new setting. As of this Kickstarter, we will have launched 6 total campaigns, and have brought numerous products to the market. Additionally, we're excited to announce jungle-themed versions of past projects will be brought back for this Kickstarter! This includes the Deck of Stories/ NPC Cards, Dungeon Notes, and new models from our miniature line Counterspell Miniatures. We'll also be unveiling new and exciting products like our jungle DM screen and our Crocodile Jasper D20."

      1985 Games have launched their third Dungeon Craft Kickstarter.  The last two have been fantastic and I absolutely love them.  While I enjoy painting minis, I'm not a fan of building terrain or scatter, especially since it tends to block sight or get knocked over and is a pain to store.  These 2D terrain pieces are a great compromise. I haven't seen anyone else talk about Dungeon Craft on the forums, but I definitely advocate!  If you missed their last two KS there's opportunity to get those as well.  And for the first time they're offering some original minis as Add-Ons.

      I barely received my last campaign pledge from Midlam that already it has something that caught my interest.
       
      Sisters of the Kraken Cult. The female counterparts of the previous "Onslaught of the Cult of the Kraken Lord" and "Cultists of the Kraken Lord". (I now have some regret of not getting it)
       

       
      What's also interesting is the optional add-on of fish folk.

       
      Brinewind is going to have some interesting neighbors.
