    First Mini Ever

    Good colour choices, nice paint consistency, neat, clean execution. My tip would be to spend a little time on cleanup/prep to remove mold lines/flash. This is a really great first attempt. Look forward to seeing more from you.

    Really terrific. The base is awesome.

    GETTING TO KNOW YOU NOVEMBER 2019 Brought to you By Glitterwolf

    Not to get too political, but I'm relatively sure most management groups are part of the Cult of Mammon.

    Bones 4 Skeletal Dragon

    Great job. I really like the way you tied the base in with the brown shades.
  7. Agreed. The reason I was looking for those stories were the mox of items. Between the armories of death, vice, and virtue and arsenal I had just about everything I would need at (presumably) a very good price. Ive looked into various weapon kits (mostly designed for 40k, since it has that bulky steampunk look) but as of now haven't found much that really fits.
  8. Exactly this. Yeah, I'm sort of in the same boat. I'm playing in a 5e campaign, and while it is fun, I'm also kinda bothered by how powerful we are at 4th level.... I was considering offering to run a campaign after this one finished up, but I'm really not too sure anyone is gonna want to play old school.

    Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon

    T3 was a pretty solid movie overall. I agree it wasn't great, but I really appreciated that the movie had the guts to actually have Judgement Day happen. That was a gutsy move, that should have been a potential throughput for future movies being set in the future Hellscape of post-Judgement Day. Salvation tried to keep it going, but they chickened out of their major plot twist ending, which is a pretty big disappointment. I do remember liking T3 at the time, but the humor really does hurt it overall. I'll have to see if I can find this "Coming Storm" cut.

    The return of the Old World

    YES!! That bolded part really annoys the bejiminees out of me. There have been a few of their recent boxed games that I thought looked interesting enough to buy. The stupidly high price point meant that I couldn't just grab one on a whim. So, I saved up and went back to the store; they were all gone. I tried to see if the store could order me one and they couldn't because it was already OOP, or their distributors couldn't get any more, or GW made the item online only (Buy it straight from GW), or whatever. ....and I'm starting to talk about pricing, which is going away from the original topic, so I'll stop here. RE: return of the Olde World---I'll wait, and watch, and see what happens.
  12. Today
  13. When I first got this mini I wasn't particularly thrilled with him. The night Goblins that came out at the same time as his lacked the silly charm of their predecessors. When I did the Mushroom base, however, he just seemed a perfect match. I am glad you like the modifications, Glitter...I did a nose job on the Bad Moon as well.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I don't play anymore, there are no players where I live now sooo... but, about the size of the bases or the look of the models: isn't D&D a "Fantasy Role Playing Game"? I mean... Fantasy... Role... Playing... The base is bigger? Well the monster is oversized! Noone ever seen a Wolf-Dragon (or a Dragon-Wolf)? Oh guys, you know what? That crazy wizard succesful hybridized a dragon and a wolf! Maybe was a big wolf, maybe was a small dragon... maybe was some kind of alchemical genetic experiment... does really matter in a Fantasy world?

    Looking for Lovecraft

    True, Lovecraft's original work is in the public domain, but surprisingly little of the body of work that has come to be mainstream Call of Cthulhu content is actually Lovecraft's original work - some of the mainstream CoC content is the work of authors whose work is still under copyright, other content uses a bit of Lovecraft as a starting point but is otherwise entirely the invention of Sandy Petersen, Chaosium, and their scenario and source book writers. I would bet that the majority of what the average gamer and YouTuber think they know about the "Cthulhu Mythos" actually comes from a mix of Chaosium and August Derleth, with very little input from Lovecraft. @Cygnwulf has a great start on a list - I might be able to help fill in most of the blanks for the Bones figures: Great Old Ones: Cthulhu 77194 Bones V Yog-Sothoth (coming soon) ????

Lots of fantasy stuff that might easily be overlooked is useful for pulp/Cthulhu, such as: Any gothic horror stuff is useful (vampires, liches, ghouls, werewolves, mummies, ghosts, zombies, witches, etc.) Lovecraft certainly did write about these, sometimes in unique enough ways that it's easy to forget that they are "only" vampires, werewolves, etc. - see, for example, "The Shunned House", "Entombed with the Pharaohs", "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward", "The Thing on the Doorstep", "The Dreams in the Witch House", "The Mound"...; the Pulps loved undead of all kinds, especially undead sorcerers, wizards, culists, liches, mummies, and vampires.... Giant Spiders, Scorpions, Crabs, Centipedes, etc. are quite appropriate to the Weird fiction genre; Lovecraft's friend and fellow "Mythos" writer Robert E. "Conan the Barbarian" Howard seems to have had a phobia of giant snakes, a theme he returned to numerous times.... gorilla-men and ape-men (along with some unfortunate implications, so use with care) were a favorite theme of many pulp writers, including Lovecraft the weird, mummified, dwarfen alligator-seal-things under "The Nameless City"? They're basically fantasy Kobolds! the abominable Tcho-Tcho people are, basically your familiar fantasy orcs and goblins in spirit.... Lovecraft had effectively retconned his fantasy/horror monsters/"gods" into technologically-advanced aliens in his later years of life; any of the Chronoscope aliens could conceivably fit the Cthulhu Mythos (the related Delta Green setting associates grey aliens, for example, with Lovecraft's Mi-Go!) Bones Flesh Golems (77512, 77169), Clay Golems (77170), etc. make splendid quasi-human, hybrid mutants. The weirder devils, demons and elementals can be readily adapted into Lovecraftian monsters (translucent Bones water or fire elementals, for example, can be used as Colours Out of Space, Fire Vampires, etc.)

    because I NEED a Succubi army for my brothel damn it!
  17. Even if I were to fire birds through the slingshot, their uneven weight distribution, light weight and ability to move themselves in mid air would destroy anything resembling accurate ballistics. Impossible to find a zero, let alone account for windage, and tumbling would be a problem if they even made it to the target. Not to mention lack of penetration or fragmenting capablities. Velocity would also be an issue because they'd have to be hitting somewhere around 2700 fps to have any effect on a hog and the wrist rocket ain't getting anywhere close to that. Especially if the green pigs you mentioned are full size. Those require a .308, not a small bird. Which is not to say that small birds cannot be used for home defense. The way to go about it is to train them to control their fear of larger creatures, ensure the target gets covered in birdseed, (suet if you're feeling mean 'cause that also draws raccoons), and also have them trained to go for the eyes first. The strength of this is in the sheer number of birds attacking, not the lethality of the individual bird.

    Since I only paint for fun and display the size doesn't affect me. If you like the models and think they'e too big for a game, why don't you paint them as statues or idols? It could make a great setting.
  20. That goblin is a perfect example of how cool the older GW sculpts were, the character oozes silly and evil t the same time. It's what a lot of the newer stuff lacks. The latest ones with that Shroom Troll and such are better again. The addition of the shrooms and the removal of the squig enhance this guy!
