Not sure if this is the right place for this… 

 

So I’m painting the Powder Monkey from the Brinewind expansion and I’m trying to figure out what the long low-hanging thing on her belt is. Anyone know? I have no idea how to paint it!

My best guess is some kind of powder horn for priming the touch hole on the cannon. Wood or brass in construction, maybe?

..... Um... Well.... Yeah, no, I won't say anything....

 

When all else fails, paint it metallic.

I believe it is rope, she has a belt and rope around her waist.

Yeah, it definitely looks machined. Since this figure seems to be a bit of an explosives enthusiast I’ll just assume it’s some kind of arcane black powder device or something and paint it like brass or steel or something.

Most likely an emergency energy drink.

@Rainbow Sculptor Could you please shed some light upon your wonderful sculpt?

Received my Bones 5. 

 

Went over the order and my PC Characters core set extra is missing about a quarter of the figures. Mostly consisting of my favourites from that selection. 😔


Shadow of Ravenhome is missing the jumping winged vampire, instead having an additional torso of the other vampire. Does anyone know the number?

Ravenhome did not have numbers listed.  I had two of the same (weirdly undersized) Vampiric Daughters and found that out when sending out my QA replacements emails.

Wow dang, that lost some detail on my copy.  Hadn't realized.

So, many, many moons ago ie when Arakoth the awesome giant spider was first unveiled, I posted about how one of our cats was going to take great exception to it. After all, she was a voracious predator of real life spiders and had previously smashed my GW Araknorok so I was expecting her to try and dispatch it asap.

 

I was wrong.

 

The closest she's been is 2 feet and that was only to see what I had put on the floor for her to see it. She then retreated to the other side of the room and watched it carefully until I put it away into a covered box and took it away. She's not scared, but definitely doesn't want to go anywhere near it! I always said that @TaleSpinner was amazing at sculpting realistic critters and apparently Diva agrees!

Cindermaw in Curse of the Crimson Throne is probably my favorite purple worm encounter.

 

Though how quickly Jon's Shoanti barbarian volunteered to be swallowed alive is kind of disturbing. :lol:

 

The Auld Grump


My players had nearly killed Cindermaw before they realized/remembered they were supposed to be re-enacting a legend about being swallowed and ‘reborn.’ 🤦🏼‍♂️

It is used for holding the small charge of gunpowder that primed the flash hole from the fuse.

      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. 👀
