    I got "Welcome To" this week.  Neta-Tanka deluxe edition is shipping.  I'm supposed to get Lords of Hellas soon.  Lots of Kickstarters are expected soon  :) 

    I'm backing On Mars and watching Bloodborne.  I'm trying to be strong not getting Bloodborne...but I LOVED that game on the PS4.

     

    We got Welcome To and have been enjoying it very much. I got my notice that Neta-Tanka should be arriving soon.

    Barge turned out to not be too scary to put together. Though painting is an intimidating task. I think I will focus on the dragons first :).

    Wow, I wish I had that ship to paint.  I've not done any huge paint jobs yet.

    I have not used a wet palette yet. Wished I owned one.  I can see how it can be very useful, especially when I'm only using a drop here and there of my high quality paints. Then the drop drys out before I need it again. I don't like wasting paint, especially my Reaper paints.  I don't feel so many when its the cheap Wal-mart paints. I do base colors with the cheap paint. Then, if I need high quality details, then I move into Reaper paints.

    You want a "zero distortion" magnifying glass.  I got mine from a needlepoint store. 

    Looking at a bunch of them now on Amazon, but none mention "zero distortion".  Would this be a okay one?

  5. Reporting in again. I have 3 Kickstarters backed at the moment. Only one is a board game, so technically I'm on target for my New Year's Resolution. Besides the game Roam, I'm backing Animal Adventures which is minis and The Dungeon which is modular boards for rpg.  They are game accessories.....so surely I'm okay. 😓

    I have to say, if I do get into miniature painting I would definitely want to paint that Bloodborne set though.  LOVE that game.  It would be a dream if I develop competence in mini painting to paint it.

    In case you're wondering, I am waiting to move before taking my hands into mini painting.  I bought that learn to paint Bones set but don't have a good area to do it.  My wife even got me a cool lighted magnifying glass stand so I can take up the hobby.  

    I need one of those light magnifying glasses. Which one did you get?  I know @Barb Bliss some type of one too. Anyone have recommendations on what to buy?

    Good luck on finding space to paint. When I took up miniature painting, I set up a folding table I brought at Walmart in the Kitchen. Space is tight, and yes, we do have to walk around it to go to the living room. The table has become an all purpose table. My niece uses it for homework. We've played many tabletop and RPG games on it. And both my niece and I paint on it. It got bits of paint colors here and there on it. For a $40 table, we are getting a lot of use from it.

    I've painted some minis today. :)

    I love the woman's dress. So shiny. I need to get that blue shiny effect on a water element mini from Quodd Heroes. I have been pondering how to pull that off.

    Ok - so haven't put any sealer on these yet.. but my first attempts at painting minis in probably over 30 years --

    From the Reaper "skills" kit:  I like how these turned out for the most part.. a few mistakes.. and definitely need to develop a steadier hand/better process to have a steady touch.

    Then tried using some of the techniques from that on some minis I had started prior to getting the kit.  Definitely improved them, but I had gone a little too far for the stuff to be entirely effective.  Still I think it definitely helped/taught me a few things.

    Ironically, this week I finally starting painting those same 3 mini's in the first picture. They are from a Reaper beginner kit which I found very informative on learning how to do washes and dry brush. Hopefully my will turn out as well as yours. I still have a long way to go on mine.

  9. LInk: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/gamingbooks/the-dungeon-set-of-2-modular-books-of-battle-mats?ref=discovery_saved_ending_soon

    Last year I bought the giant battle mat books mentioned at the end of the video. They are awesome!  The artwork is spot on. Put two together and you have a huge play area. This new Kickstarter allows the same flexibility but with smaller, more portable books. I recommend this for all DM's and for regular players who like to bring extras to their games. 

  10. I pick up a lot of extras for roleplaying games, both through online stores, retail stores, and Kickstarter.  So here is a thread where you can chat about what you love to buy to enhance our beloved games.

    I would be so jealous of that dog. Actually, in my Pathfinder game now, my Leopard had a much higher AC than me, a druid. I send her into battle, while I hang back and cast spells. We make a great team.

    Earlier in the day, we played Dinogenics.  Fun game, though there seems to be no go way to catch up once you get behind.  Roland was able to get the first dino, and was dealt a fabulous rule breaking card, and didn't give the first spot for 4 seasons.  By that time, it was impossible to catch up.  I ended up going the mutant route (though didn't start soon enough).  Anyone that has played it, do you have and suggestion for a house rule or two for allowing a person to be able to get back into the game?  One thought I had was that you couldn't be first player for more than two times in a row.  If you do, then you are last the next turn.  What do you guys think?

    I really like Dinogenics. I've only played it twice so I don't yet know enough to give advice. I love the artwork better than Dinosaur Island. I can't decide which of the two games I prefer. My sister prefers Dinosaur Island. I'm glad to have both in my collection.

  13. Got a several Kickstarters in recently. Not had a change to play them all.

    • Bad Seed (my sister got this one)--cute fun game
    • Atlantis Island of Gods--directions are a bit confusing. Need to play it a few more times to get a full understanding of it.
    • Ancient World--read the rules, exited about playing it soon
    • Empires of the Void II--started to read the rules, then the electricity went out due to bad weather.
    • Micro Brew--read the rules. Hopefully will play this today.
    • Quodd Heroes--already read the rules. Super excited about this one. Had to wait two years for this one.

    Kickstarters I am still waiting on:

    • Roam (plus Haven)

    2018

    • Awkward Guest
    • Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood of Venice (due 2020)

    Bones 4 fulfilled this week! We were too intimidated to open the box but needed to at least inventory! Painting backlog now officially lasts thru 2030.

    (There are 150 minis in the core set alone, another 40 in the expansion box. What have we done????)

    Wow. You do have your work cut out for you. I'm very behind myself on my minis. Plan to paint a lot this summer.

  15. Intriguing article. I agree that role playing games are more popular than ever. Last year the assistant band director (who is also my DM) had some teens meeting after school in my classroom where he taught them how to create characters and play a mini adventure. Sadly all of them graduated that year and we don't have a new group. One of our former seniors is now a regular at our Pathfinder meet ups. Several of us teachers have been playing Pathfinder together.
