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.

      Another “large collection of miniatures” kickstarters, reminiscent of the recent Blacklist Games Fantasy kickstarters.

      I am tempted, even though it covers a lot of things we already have.

      Pixies, Wyrms, Demonicity – Three Mini Role-Playing Games
       
      Three ready-for-adventure mini-game boxed sets for your RPG game night, featuring the Tri-Stat System used in BESM Fourth Edition RPG.
       

       
      If you're looking for role-playing games that are concise enough to crack open and start playing right away, yet sufficiently robust and evocative to support longer campaign play as well, you've come to the right place.
       
       
      Welcome to the Kickstarter for the first three Tri-Stat System Mini-Game Boxed Sets – a new line of compact and complete role-playing adventure games that are compatible with Dyskami Publishing's flagship BESM Fourth Edition anime and manga RPG. Tri-Stat System creator Mark MacKinnon has distilled and customised the complete system into distinct streamlined versions for each of the three adventure games – targeting their specific genres and background settings in easy-to-understand boxed sets.
       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – it's time for your next great role-playing adventure!
       

       
      Pixies, Wyrms, and Demonicity – These boxed set RPGs are games of adventure, exploration, battle, heroism, romance, and imagination. Yet unlike in a traditional board game, the possibilities for exploration and action in these role-playing game are endless.
       
      Each of the three role-playing adventure games contains the following components:
       
      a 32-page full-colour rulebook that gives your group everything you need to play, with sections on character abilities, magical spells/paranormal powers, weapons and equipment, enemy encounters, items and equipment, and guidelines for integrating the Tri-Stat System game with the compatible BESM Fourth Edition RPG
      6 brief story scenarios so you can start playing adventures right away
      6 pre-generated player character sheet handouts, with game stats and illustration
      4 custom-etched dice specific to that boxed set
       
      You can pledge for one, two, or all three of these boxed sets during the Kickstarter.
       
      ...
       
      I know know nothing about these creators or the system, but I decided to back for Pixies entirely because of that picture of the corgi. 👀
