Thoughts while inventorying:


- the mammoth is amazing and massive

- dear God shavynra comes in a big bag and looks gigantic unassembled compared to the other dragons

- my giant spider came with legs on their sprues so I know what is what, yay

- yogg saroth whatever has a scary number of tentacles visible in the bag 

- shadow dragon has hilariously TINY hands for how beefy his arms are

- there is so much stuff in dark depths 

- chicken swarm is amazing


Over all I'm missing 1item, but it is also an item I don't care about do not worth the effort lol

Apparently the ship got a head start.  I came downstairs to put my shoes on & there was a long box in my computer chair.

So far my inventorying is going well. Got one of the shrines in Brinewind that has a broken off missing arm, which I would like to replace since I like the shrine. Missing dice from core. The goat with the kid adventurers is missing a tail but I think I can greenstuff one. 


The big figures of the expansion sets are really hit or miss on quality. The hydra and medusa in Greek are amazing but the Cerberus is poorly fit and the fit design isn't very good. The crocosaurus in Depths is amazing and well fit, but the water beholder thing is poorly fit and designed. The merfolk are amazing and honestly better than Reaper metal merfolks. My only disappointment is that Reaper doesn't follow my head-canon about mermen: mermen have egg pouches like seahorses. 


Checking the add-ons and ship tomorrow.

Mine is the same. It's very hard to tell from the graphic; is it maybe supposed to be that way? Anyone?

I agree, my Meriwyn shrine also has an arm stub, and from the art, I think that's how it's intended to be.




Yes, another confirmation here.  Mine is armless as well, and studying the image on Kickstarter, I pretty much confirmed that's how it's supposed to be.  Didn't @Rainbow Sculptor do the shrines?  Maybe she can confirm.

The courier shenanigans are on track.


My packages have been handed over to another courier (GLS Logistics - Dicom), and they just called me because they don't deliver to PO boxes (of course...). Meaning I have to give my home address, and it will be delivered tomorrow (one day later... again). Oh, and they haven't received all of the boxes either.


Hopefully, they won't deliver when I'm out for an appointment.

Can we please not have sculpted broken arms. If we want to have a broken arm we can easily use a scalpel. I will probably use one of my historic hands and sculpt the arm back on, but that will push it to the back of the queue.

Mine is the same. It'll be here between 5 & 6 pm, just like always. My house is one of the last stops in the day for UPS. Ship was tagged/dropped at 5:10 pm yesterday.

I wish I'd gotten more Wall of Thorns. Our cleric has been using it a ton... since I put the order in though. And I didn't touch it much after placing the order. Oh well. It'll get to retail eventually.

I almost had the opposite problem.  I ordered a bunch of them in anticipation of the Druid casting that spell a lot, and the druid player dropped out of the game back in February. 

But the new player who just joined decided that she wanted to play a Druid, so it worked out.   Except that assembling 25 of the little b*******s is not going to be fun. Didn't realize those would come unassembled.

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

      Midlam keeps chugging new sets that are hard to resist.


      I skipped on the last gnome one, but the whimsical fancifulness of this one has got me hooked.

      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.

      Kinda curious on this one. Thou I will admit the price is higher then I'd like to pay right now.

      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.
