    Got my first Dog Might purchase in this week, a gorgeous bubinga and wenge sentinel! It's absolutely everything I hoped it would be, plus it fits 100% perfectly in the Kingdom Death: Monster box. Thank you so much Dog Might team, and special thanks to Zoe and Rosie for taking extra care to make sure it turned out exactly how I wanted! :D (It's a little redder in person than it is in the photos!)

    Charlie, the saddest alligator, can emphasize with Sawdust & would love to see his owners dress up in a costume he’d pick out... which most likely will be cookie shaped.

    The beautiful dice tower arrived today, and I couldn't be more pleased. I love the extra little cosmetic details y'all touched on between the prototype and this. Having the felt nicely lay in so that it's completely surrounded by a frame of wood all around makes it feel just that extra bit more premium. The carving and engraving are beautiful and defined perfectly, and I can definitely tell the entire piece is carved from one block of wood (either that or someone spent a good deal of time finding pieces with grain that matches perfectly. Also, it makes a wonderful backdrop for model pictures. Keep up the outstanding work Dog Might!

    For Table Top Game day, I entered this mini painting contest at a local gaming store. Had several weeks to work on it. Not bad for an amateur... & out of a group of 25 entries... Thanks to the blessings of Odin... he placed 4th!

    Experimental Bordeaux finish on African Mahogany, and the ziricote XL sheath: I am in love with this finish on the mahogany. It’s stunning. It has an iridescent quality in person that is fantastic. Back side to show you how it looks on unsculpted surface: It’s always fun to see how the woodgrain lines up. It looks like the sheath pieces fit together like so:

    Hello people.. Long time lurker, first time poster here. After quite a long wait (International backer N*936) my coco's finally made it to France this week. And well...it was worth the wait! The wood are Padauk, Canarywood, Black Walnut, and Chechen. (i guess, since it's my order and it look like it, but i have a small doubt with Benge, because of the felt not corresponding the one annouced for Chechen). The last pic is some of my canarywood coco, ready to help me DM a game of Conan 2d20, with those fancy doom and momentum stone (and some coins for Fortune Points).

    So, right off the bat, I have a confession to make. I am a liar. A terrible, terrible liar. Bolivian Rosewood is not a ‘True’ Rosewood at all. In my defense, I didn’t name it. But more on that later…. GENERAL INFO Native to tropical South America, Bolivian Rosewood is common to Brazil and, surprise, Bolivia where it prefers the drier areas of the forest. It is a medium size tree typically around 60 - 65 feet tall, though exceptional specimens can reach 100 feet with diameters approaching 5 feet. The bark of the tree is quite striking, showing high contrasting areas of white and a darker grey. Bolivian Rosewood is most often used in the music industry because of its breathtaking appearance and superb tonal qualities. Test this on any Dog Might product made of it by singing directly to the item then holding it to your ear, like a seashell. A ROSE (WOOD) BY ANY OTHER NAME… Like the Orange Roughy fish, which used to be called Slimehead, industries often change the name of a species to increase sales. Bolivian Rosewood is actually from a tree named Pau Ferro. True Rosewoods come from the Genus Dalbergia and Pau Ferro is in the genus Libidibia, which means it is not a true Rosewood. Libidibia is an amazing word to say over and over. Try it. Now. You will thank me. So why the name change, you ask. Was Bolivian Rosewood once called Slimewood? No, the name change is due to it almost identical properties to true Rosewoods. It’s working properties, graining, and luster mirror those other Rosewoods. Even professional musicians can’t tell the difference in tonal qulaities of Pau Ferro and Rosewoods. Another reason for the change is that many Rosewoods have worked their way onto the CITES endangered list and are no longer available. But fear not, Pau Ferro is not in danger. I would also like to point out that I used the word 'Rosewood' in this paragraph 5 times. Well, now its 6. THE ROSEWOOD DEFENSE Spiritualists believe that Bolivian Rosewood symbolizes love, healing, change, creativity and, most importantly, blocking unwanted forces. When the zombie apocalypse inevitably arrives, be sure to have some of this fine wood around. THOUGHTS FROM A WOODWORKER We when first started this little venture, using Bolivian Rosewood was a far-off dream. It is roughly 6 times costlier than the domestic woods we had been using. Now, we use a butt ton of it and it is truly glorious. Looking back, I am glad that we could afford it only after we became more experienced because, much like or Foreman Puzz Longbeard, it is a challenge to work with. It is oily. Very oily. It doesn’t like glue or finishes. The first time we used it, in our Adventure Case Kickstarter, I finished it with our old Poly based Dog Might Varnish. It was a little tacky but we went ahead and took pics for the campaign anyway. Fast forward to a week later, that damn box was still tacky. I am guessing that it is still tacky today, years later. The natural oils in the wood reacted with our old finish and stopped it from drying, ever. So, we would use a ‘dry coat’ on all Bolivian Rosewood from that point on. That meant soaking it in our varnish, then wiping it off, effectively using it as a sealant but resulting in a low gloss finish that didn’t match the rest of our products. I tried Shellac. It worked but, like our Head of Ops, Zoe, it is a pain in the butt to work with. Yeah, this is the one. Still wet 3 years later. Once we moved to our new location, we installed the new spray booth and switched to an industrial strength Catalyzed Lacquer finish. Our first Dragon Sheath made in Rosewood went into finishing, we all held our collective breath. An hour later…voila…gorgeous finish and completely dry to the touch. Glory, Glory, Hallelujah!!!!! Bolivian Rosewood is also very hard, coming in at 1960 on the Janka scale. The wood has a high amount of silica which makes it very tough on tools, requiring new blades often after cutting. It is heavy, making it hard on the body. Want to have a good, hard day’s work, try resawing 8/4 Bolivian Rosewood on the bandsaw for a few hours. Your body will not be pleased. Lumberjack juice helps. So, why the hell do we use this godforsaken wood, you ask. Because it is simply one of the most luxurious woods in the world. The color is warm and rich, ranging from reddish orange to dark violet brown. The grain is organic, curving softly through each piece in strong black lines. It feels amazing in the hand when finished. It is solid and strong but the surface is buttery soft, like the bum of a newborn. The luster, even before finishing, is incredible. It is consistent, beautiful, and, like a fine Scotch, only gets better with age.

    So, got more of the set done today. Almost finished. Thought I would share some pics. Plus, some of the custom product we are making for the palyers is ready as well. Mine is the Pink Heart sentinel. The DM Screen is not the one we will be using. That one will have a Beholder on it!

    Here is the first half after one coat of lacquer. I used all scrap from the shop. This is the right side of the table. You can see the angled edge for the DM. It is made out of our most popular woods, Flame Birch, African Mahogany, Ash, Walnut, and Bubinga.

    IT IS TIME!!! I have been waiting a while to share all of my gorgeous Dog Might wood bits, and today my Valhalla Screen and Component Collectors arrived so here they are in all my poorly framed glory. We have 4 Benge Component Collectors, a Benge Valhalla Screen, 2 Canarywood and 2 Padauk Hero Sleeves and a Dark Walnut adventure case. I can't wait to actually use them but I had to bust out some components from my favourite game to show them off. I am starting running a DnD adventure properly for the first time in a few weeks time so Ill add a picture of the screen in action then! Much love and respect to all here and the DMG team!

    So I sponsor a Sci-Fi club at the high school where I work and today was our annual club fair. We had a small attraction going where if you rolled a nat 20 you didn’t have to pay your dues. And I got to show off some Dog Might goodness.

    This is my lot of Dog Might Gear I’ve received over the last 10 months Not pictured 2 prototype Dice Towers I purchased for my players in January and March of 2018 Deck Box and Dragon Sheath, and Card Holders purchased on the website 2017-09-18 Bone Box and Hero Sleeves via Kickstarter - received 2018-07-12 Dice Towers via Kickstarter received - 2018-08-04 I am still waiting on my CoCo, but as I’m backer 2349 I have a while to wait.

    The CoCos are HERE! I got 2 in Benge wood. I got them lest friday and have so far used them for every game I've put on the table this week. They're working great, thank you DMG On the left, my Pass-em-Around CoCo, and the right is the Bank/Personal one. The Bank/Personal gives me a variety of tiles for all different game tokens, whether to use as a back or as an individual organizer. The Pass-em-Around is meant so that every player (up to 5) can get their own little tile with the two wells and also a card stand for hidden objectives/rolls. The Deck and Card Stand tiles are gravy, although upon reflection and testing I should have just gotten 3 extra squares. Then all players could have gotten a Double and a Square. A combination of both CoCos used for a mock-setup of Near and Far And finally, my entire Dog Might collection so far (+3 more card stands not depicted). Still have a Traveler Dice Tower coming next!

    At long last, I've finally put some paint on the Dropfleet Army. I have an event at GenCon and an entire fleet to paint! Over the holiday, I managed to get about half the fleet primed and did enough of a test piece to know that my colors are going to work together. 1. I built up my pair of Battleships. These are the BIG boys on the field. More details on the build-up and a few more pictures HERE. 2. I built up a pair of GenCon Exclusive ships (no pictures yet). These are limited edition ships only available at shows - for those in the U.S., that means GenCon. They share stats with other cruisers, so there's no gaming advantage - just an alternate sculpt and different name. 3. I primed and started airbrushing the 2-player starter pack. The ship that's shaded isn't done - it's just "done enough" to know that I can catch up the other ships to this state of done-ness and then work on the details. HOPEFULLY I can replicate the process. (I tried to take notes and pictures, but ... yikes, it was a busy day!)

    And while we're here, I've edited a bunch of photos lately, but here's two most recent ones from when I visited my friend for an agility seminar last month. We went on a bunch of hikes, so I took a bunch of photos along the trail. The black & white dog is actually a tailed Aussie - he is genetically a black tri but his tan points are extremely slight. The other dog is a Keeshond.

    My latest Dog Might order came in today! I'm super happy with everything, and DMG did a great job straightening out the top cut on the black walnut sentinel. Even in person I can't tell it was ever uneven. They don't seem super popular, but I for one really like the beveling and framing effects DMG has been doing lately. They add a touch of class without obscuring the grain. So here's my new KDM loadout. The card stand was made by my friend/KDM partner who dabbles in woodworking (he's going to stain and finish it later to match my dining table), and the gear grids and token holder are from Giant Turtle Creations on Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/GiantTurtleCreations) who has great quality 3D printed stuff, though they're certainly not Zoxe's jaw-dropping BoRo grids. Plus everything fits inside the box when closed, provided that the gear grids and showdown board are left out on the lid.

    Hey! Still here and still well. The holiday lead-up and subsequent holiday season just bogged me down. I don't even know where to begin posting, haha, so I'll just fire one off here. I'm going to try to get back into the conversation a bit more, but January-March is busy for me because I'm prepping for my company's new catalog that comes out in March. In related DMG news, I just got the notification form the dice KS on Wednesday that my Redheart D6s are on the way!

    Got my items. Got to show them off! My three items: Valhalla in Demon Blood, Sentinel in Demon Blood, and Batty. Batty joins our family. Pumpkin I gave to my sister for her birthday last year. She keeps stealing Batty from me, saying she ought to be with her cousin. My new sentinel with a D20 design. I bought my sentinel specifically to hold dice, with it does very well. Currently it is holding 14 sets of dice for a total of 106 dice. That includes a bunch of mini D6's. My lovely spellbook Valhalla. Being an English/Tech teacher, I have taught The Raven and other Gothic literature to teenagers. Here is one of my cats preparing to DM a new adventure.

    Probe Droids are done! As I mentioned above, I started these guys many moons ago, and my painting methods have changed quite a bit in the past year. I decided to let little flaws go - mold lines, injection gates, gaps, and other model prep issues that I'd fix today were left "as is" and I decided to see what I could do quickly. I'm happiest with the grimy, dirty, oily robot arms, least happiest with the details on the central globe. There's a lot more that I could have done - gem-style lenses, better battle damage, picking out rivets and vents, etc. and a lot of overall cleanup. But ... it's time for brushes down and onto the next.

    Bone Box arrived this morning just as I was running out the door headed out of town today. Only had time to glance at it until I got home this evening. I believe that’s Chechen, Leopardwood, Wenge, Bocote and Bolivian Rosewood. May have the first and last swapped. So pretty. And of course the dice. Smoke, Slime, Unicorn, Pride and Rainbow! I like lots of color!

    Three Kingdoms (Redux) This game is 3 player ONLY, which is unusual. It documents the bid for power between the Wei, Wu, and Shu dynasties in old China. Worker placement/bidding. I used all but 2 trays of my two CoCos, and they wound up holding all the components PERFECTLY, and as you can see, Three Kingdoms has a lot of components! Full board set up at the start of the game, with the supply a then individual player trays in front of each of us. A close up of my personal trays. I ALWAYS take the dragon when I use my CoCos, because it's special. A close up of the general supply. Turns out some of my magnets link even when the dots don't all face the same way, and that was advantageous here.

    I kept telling myself for months I will post pictures of one of my gaming shelves. Finally getting around to it. I have several gaming shelves, but they look boring. Then I have this one. Yes, that is a Tardis sitting on top of a Ikea shelf. I actually bought the bottom shelf very cheap at Dirt Cheap. It has a hole in the wood near the bottom, which gave it a heavy discount (which I was very okay with). The Tardis I picked up at a cool store called Home....uh....something. Zenith will remember. The Tardis has three shelves inside which I use to keep my many gaming accessories.

The card holders worked awesome for sorting our cards while keeping their front side hidden from each other. Mine is the leopardwood CoCo's on the right in the picture.
