I dont really go out of my way to find them.  If I go to a game store and they have old stock, I look through them and get what I like.  I don't actively troll the bay of e or Noble Knight though.

Pretty much I go with ^ WWDD (What Would Dilvish Do?) for this one.

There could be some others...that I am not remembering.

In other contexts that might be far less advisable. :ph34r:

I don’t actively hunt for OOP minis.  But I like older hobby stuff, so if a bunch of vintage pieces that interest me show up at a swap meet or hobby shop at a good price, I’ll snatch them up.

I'd say I don't really hunt for out of production minis, but we also want another Dragons Don't Share I nthe house, but I'm not willing to pay the collectors prices that it sits at right now. 

 

For most things though, there's tons already that I want that are currently in production, so I don't really have any desire to actively hunt down minis that are out of production.  I have hunted for minis in production and a place in North America that actually has them in stock though - sometimes trying to find specific Infinity models can be a daunting task.

I have very little nostalgia, so it's not much of an issue for me. I did get on a kick to get some of my favorites from when I was a kid, a few years back. The primitive globby sculpts of the old grenadier stuff reminded me why I'm not a nostalgic person. I'd rather spend the money on the amazing stuff being produced today, both from a sculpting and casting standpoint.

As far as modern OOPs, I used to collect Kingdom Death but it's nigh impossible due to scalpers. I refuse to do business with scalpers, I think the entire idea of scalping is reprehensible, greedy and selfish.

My quirk is more that I prefer to buy miniatures directly from the sculptors when I can. I guess I don't like middle men, either. I'm not a great capitalist in the modern sense where people make money off other people's work, officially or not.

Not really. I find most older miniatures look rather dreadful to my aesthetic senses. I really like more modern miniatures better. There are a few minis from back in the day that I like, but I don't usually go hunting for something like that...

I'd like to get the full set of Reaper minis for Legend of the Five Rings and Exalted, especially Exalted.  This is slow going as these rarely show up in online auctions.  There are also a few Deadlands: Hell on Earth Reloaded minis I still need.

 

I'm also trying to collect Grenadier's Julie Guthrie's Personalities lines, preferably in unsealed blister.  But, now that I think about it, I'm not sure why I'm doing this.  Maybe this is a sign I should stop this particular quest.

 

My most recent vintage acquisition was Reaper 10001: The Druid's Stone.

Not really. For wargame minis, I mostly work with what's currently available. (And there aren't that many companies that sell 15mm Swiss Pike or whatever.) For RPG minis, the new stuff is almost always better than (and in a different scale from) the old stuff. That said, some old RP humans can be used as petite humans or large halflings or whatever with the modern stuff. And some of the figures I bought years ago are still very nice sculpts.

Your business, of course.

 

But there are three ways that supply:demand mismatches get handled by people:

  • Increase the supply. The manufacturer seems to like the limited supply, which I think is kind of silly, but it's his business.
  • Ration by queueing. If you manage to get to the head of the line, you get the stuff. the rest are out of luck. This favors people with time to waste standing in lines.
  • Ration by price. The people who want the thing more get the thing by paying more. This favors people with more resources and people who actually care more.

 

In the case of "scalping", people with time are trading that time for money by researching availability methods and standing in lines that the rest of us don't have the time for. (Essentially this is arbitrage.) I don't have a philosophical problem with this, but then I'm not much interested in supporting artificially limited supply from the manufacturer, either. I can't recall a time when I was interested enough in this kind of thing that I was willing to spend significantly more for it. But I don't have a problem with "buy low; sell high". The only problem I have is with "buy high". ::P:

The only oop mini I actively hunted for was an old metal Smeagol and Deagol on a rowboat.  Spent ages and only found one that was horribly priced.   Thankfully a friend found one on the German Bay of Evil for cheap (one of the oars is broken).  He bought it and gifted it to me.  There are some limited run resin figures from some companies I would have loved to have picked up, but I will survive without them in my ever-growing pile of unpainted plastic/metal/resin.

Question Feb. 25th.

When playing D&D, wargames or RPG's, do you like to use terrain like buildings, trees etc, or do you just play on a table and grids?

D&D and other RPGs can go from theater of the mind all the way up to fully decided out terrain boards. Depends on the needs of the session and the availability of stuff.

 

Wargames definitely need terrain.

Not actively, but if I come across some old Chainmail minis or Battlefleet Gothic minis, I'm likely to snatch them up.

If I find an "Unseen" from Battletech, I will pick it up if it's reasonably priced. Otherwise, my hunting for older stuff is usually restricted to parts for old guns I am repairing.

I dunno if he’s out of print, but I am on the hunt for an orc that I received when I called to order a GW catalog back in....’92? ‘95?

 

He was a fantasy model rather than 40k, I recall he’s holding two axes, the one in his right hand was raised up and the other held downward. I think he had a furry horned helmet? He was plastic. I’m pretty sure his mouth was open in a shout.
 

I just have a fleeting memory but I would love to get another one now that I’m (mostly) grown up. Anyway if this rings a bell among any of you orc enthusiasts, please let me know.

There are some OOP miniatures that are on my list if I ever find them for less than a kidney, but I'm not really actively searching for any. I'd like to have the Twilight Nazgul, and there are a lot of the Grenadier Guthrie Personalities I wouldn't say no to. 

 

I do not like manufactured scarcity in any form, and I refuse to take part in such. There are a very few exceptions. Limited run miniatures that are for charitable causes I will get behind, but limited runs just to drive up the demand/sales I refuse to be a factor in. There are a few KD minis I'd like to have, but I will never, ever own them because of that.

I do have some Grenadier and Ral Partha figures, and right now I try picking up the old 40K metal figures. I like the aesthetic of them because it's kind of like archaeology, we need to see where things all started and how they evolved so that we can see how far we've come since then.

 

As an example, here is a Wraithlord (New vs. old, pic not mine):

That one on the right isn't a "wraithlord." It's an Eldar Dreadnaught. They weren't called some fancy-schmancy "wraithlord" bunk... The one on the left definitely looks better, though.

      I put together a few documents related to using Bones. I've submitted these to the Craft section of the website, but as it may be a little while before Reaper has the time available to add them, Bryan suggested that I post them here.
       
      Bones - Frequently Asked Questions (this document)
      Bones - Preparation (mould line removal, glue, putty, etc.)
      Bones - The First Coat is the Difference (primer, primer alternatives, paint durability)
       
      --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
       
      Bones Miniatures: Frequently Asked Questions
       
      What are Bones Miniatures?
       
      The Bones material is a polymer plastic. It is light-weight and slightly flexible, and is very durable. You can paint a Bones figure straight out of the package, and that paint job will also be pretty durable. Bones figures are as detailed as metal figures, for a much lower cost. Bones miniatures are produced with integral (built-in) bases, but it is easy to cut the miniature off of the base if you prefer to put it on something else. It is also easy to cut the figures apart to convert them into different poses or change weapons.
       
       
      What is the bare minimum I need to know to start painting my Bones right now!
       
      If you want background on why these are the recommendations or what other alternatives might also work, read the rest of this document, Painting Bones Miniatures: Preparation and Painting Bones Miniatures: The First Coat is the Difference.
       
      Remove Mould Lines
      Remove by slicing just under the mould lines with a hobby knife, in a similar motion to paring vegetable or hand-sharpening a pencil. Files work best if you file in one direction, then remove burrs by filing in the opposite direction.
       
      Reshape Bent Parts
      Dip the misshapen piece in boiling water for a minute or two, remove and move into desired position, then immediately hold in ice water for a few minutes. NOTE: Read additional information in this document for safety recommendations!
       
      What Glue to Use
      Superglue aka cyanoacrylate works best to glue Bones to itself or other materials.
       
      What Putty to Use
      All major brands of putty tested work with bones. (Green Stuff, Milliput, etc.)
       
      What Works as a Paint Stripper
      Soak figure in Simple Green Concentrated All Purpose Cleaner for 12 – 24 hours, then scrub it with an old toothbrush.
       
      Best Primer
      None. Start with a first coat of undiluted Reaper Master Series Paint, then paint as normal from there. This is the best choice for durability and a good painting surface. Other acrylic paints that work with miniatures should have similar results. Paint can be applied with a brush or airbrush (diluted paint seems to work with an airbrush.)
       
      Best Primer if You Want to Prime Anyway
      Reaper Master Series Brush-On Primer in black or white, or Folk Art Glass & Tile Medium (also brush-on.)
       
      Best Spray Primer
      Many aerosol primers will not cure completely on Bones. Reaper forum members have reported good results with the Army Painter sprays.
       
      How to Do a Wash Directly on Bones
      Thin your wash with one of the following mediums and just a small amount of water if necessary: Master Series Brush-On Sealer, Folk Art Glass & Tile Medium, Delta Ceramcoat All-Purpose Sealer.
       
       
      Can you really paint Bones miniatures straight out of the package?
       
      Absolutely! However, if you’ve ever painted metal, resin or plastic figures in the past, you may notice some differences in how the first coat of paint behaves. Paint diluted with water (even just a drop or two for a thinned base coat) may bead up and pull away from crevices. The more water you add to the paint, the more you’ll notice this effect, so water-thinned washes used directly on the Bones material don’t really work. That first coat of paint may also take a little longer to dry.
       
      Most people find that the paint applies a little better if you first wash the figure. Just scrub it with a little dish soap and a toothbrush and allow it to dry before you start to paint. Another alternative is to apply a primer or another surface preparation that works with the Bones material as the first coat.
       
      Once you get that first coat on, you can use highly thinned paint in subsequent layers and it should behave pretty much the same as on any other figure.
       
      For more information, methods to use thinned paint directly on the Bones surface, tips for quicker drying and a list of primers that do (or don’t) work with Bones, please see the Craft document Painting Bones Miniatures: The First Coat is the Difference.
       
       
      What kinds of paint work on Bones Miniatures?
       
      The Bones material is designed to work with Reaper’s Master Series and Master Series HD lines of paint. Internal testing and feedback from customers suggests that Bones also works well with the other major miniature paint lines, including Reaper’s discontinued Pro Paints, Vallejo Game Color, Vallejo Model Color, Privateer Press’ P3 Paints, and Games Workshop. Artists’ acrylic paint are also likely to work on Bones.
       
      However, please note that Reaper does not offer any guarantee or assurance that the Bones miniatures will work with any particular paint other than Master Series and Master Series HD. You are advised to test your preferred paint on a Bones figure to decide for yourself how well it works. If your paint does not work well on bare Bones, you can prepare the surface with a coat of Master Series paint and it will likely work over that.
       
       
      How do I remove the mould lines from a Bones figure?
       
      Like all miniatures, Bones figures have small mould lines as a result of the manufacturing process. You do not need to remove these to paint or use a Bones, but many people prefer to remove them for aesthetic reasons. You can remove these with the same tools you would use on a metal figure – hobby knife, files, and/or sandpaper. However, you may find that you need to use these materials in a slightly different way.
       
      Hobby knives work best if you slice under and along the mould line in a paring motion rather than scraping them along the mould line. With files and sandpaper, file in one direction perpendicular to the mould line. If you find you have burrs of material remaining, lightly file those off moving the tool in the opposite direction.
       
       
      How Durable is the Bones Material?
       
      Bones figures are remarkably durable, and not just in comparison to metal and resin figures. People have dropped Bones from a height of one storey, ground them underfoot, driven over them with a car, carried them loose in backpacks and pockets, and they’ve sustained no damage.
       
      The light weight of the material means drops and falls hit with much less mass behind them. The give of the material means it’s much better able to absorb impact, where a brittle material like resin will likely break.
       
      They’re not indestructible, but they can take an impressive amount of damage. We had several Bones figures out at the PAX Prime 2012 convention for people to examine and abuse. We bounced them off the floor, and invited dozens of people to step on them. One of the small kobolds with narrow diameter legs did break at one ankle on the third day. Another figure suffered a very small area of damage due to the friction generated by someone’s shoe grinding it across the floor.
       
       
      If Bones are so durable, is it hard to cut them up for conversions? What glue should I use?
       
      The Bones material cuts easily with a sharp hobby knife. Cuts have smooth edges and do not deform surrounding material as often happens with metal. So it is an easy matter to swap a head from one figure to another, or cut off an arm and reposition it slightly so you can customize individual figures within a unit. All it takes to glue them back together is regular superglue (cyanoacrylate). You can also use superglue to adhere Bones to metal or wood. Green Stuff and other two-part putties work well if you need to fill gaps or sculpt on additional details. Pinning is a good idea when attaching metal parts to a Bones miniature, as the added weight of the metal will otherwise make the join weaker. The plastic parts are quite stable when glued together, but pinning doesn’t hurt in plastic-to-plastic conversions, either.
       
       
      How durable is a painted Bones figure, though?
       
      Bones miniatures painted with Master Series and Master Series HD paint are surprisingly durable. You probably don’t want to grind one underfoot or drive over it with your car, but you’ll be amazed at what they can handle. Figures are unlikely to experience notable damage to the paint from regular handling, bumping against each other on the table, or getting knocked over, even when playing with the most ham-handed of players.
       
      My painted test figures survived being tossed unsecured in a plastic box with a bunch of unpainted Bones that was carried around two conventions (PAX Prime and Gen Con 2012). They were handled by hundreds of people and literally and repeatedly thrown onto tables from heights of several feet. They have some dings and chips, but the bulk of the paint jobs survived. The paint on these figures had not been coated with any sort of protective sealer.
       
      The durability of other brands of paint may vary. I have not done the same sort of extensive testing with other brands of paint. In my limited testing of how well other brands of paint apply to bare Bones, I did notice that Vallejo Model Color paints seemed to rub off the figure pretty easily. I did not notice that happening with the other brands I tested. (P3, Vallejo Game Color, Pro Paint, Adikolor.)
       
       
      Can you remove unwanted paint from a Bones figure?
       
      Sometimes painting a figure doesn’t go exactly as planned. If you would like to strip the paint from a Bones figure so you can start from scratch to paint it another way, just drop it into a dish of Simple Green Concentrated All Purpose Cleaner for 12 – 24 hours, then scrub it with an old toothbrush and it is ready to paint again. Some paint colours may leave a stain on the Bones material, but should not leave any texture or affect subsequent layers of paint. Simple Green in an eco-friendly cleaner sold in most hardware stores and some grocery stores. Brake fluid also works, though is a much more toxic material.
       
       
      Are Bones figures less detailed than their metal counterparts?
       
      Bones figures are bright white, which makes them hard to photograph. A number of people who have lacked confidence in the product quality based on the photographs in the online store have been pleasantly surprised by them once they can look at one in person. However, there are also a few people who feel the quality of the Bones is a little less than that of their metal counterparts. When available, Reaper’s online store includes photographs of painted versions of the figures that may give you a better idea, but looking at Bones yourself in person is really the only way to find out how you feel about them.
       
      I compared one of the smaller Bones, Dwarf Warrior 77011, against his counterpart, Fulumbar 14146, under magnification. The only real difference I noted between the two was that the texture of the chainmail loin cloth and the laces on the gloves were a tiny bit shallower on the Bones figure.
       
      You can see a comparison of a Bones and metal figure of the same sculpt painted identically in this thread on the Reaper forums:
      http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/47477-bathalian-bones-vs-metal-challenge/
       
       
      Do Bones have sharp edges on weapons?
       
      Weapons and the like on Bones figures are cast at pretty much the same thickness as similar parts on Reaper’s metal figures. However, since Bones is a flexible plastic material, you will never be able to shave or file down an edge or a point to the same sharpness that you can achieve with a metal figure.
       
       
      Are the photographs of Bones figures in the online store and catalogue the same figures as the ones for sale?
       
      The online Reaper store and catalogue photographs of Bones miniatures are taken of production run figures – the same figures that Reaper packages up to sell.
       
       
      Can I do anything about a bent spear or sword on a Bones figure?
       
      You may find that sometimes the thinner parts on Bones, like spears and swords, will look a little bent. Or the figure might be leaning back or forward too much on its ankles. If you want to straighten those out, hold the figure with tongs or in a colander, and dip it into boiling or near boiling water for at least a minute or two. Remove it from the water, reposition the part, and immediately dunk it into a bowl of ice water for at least a minute. It should hold in the new position. If you expose the figure to heat at a later time, it may revert to its original position. For this reason, if you want to wash the figure with soap and water prior to painting, you should use cool water or wash it before you heat it to reset a warped part.
       
      Important safety notes: Please exercise caution! The Bones material may get hot when dipped in boiling water, so you should use protective gear rather than touching it with your bare fingers. The Bones material might be damaged or damage your pot if placed in direct contact with the pot surface. If you are under the age of 18, please ask your parents for permission and have them read this section before boiling Bones figures.
       
       
      Are Bones made in China or the United States?
       
      All Bones figures made prior to March 2013 were produced in China. In March 2013, Reaper installed the machine necessary to produce Bones in its factory in Texas, and began the process of transferring production in-house.

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, JUNE 2020 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand ( we all know most of you rebellious lot will ignore most of it, but one can try)
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and post one... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 8:00 hours and 12:00 hours CET. ( Central European Time)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday.
       
      All HAIL WOOF!
