A Brief Look at Pathfinder Minis

Last week saw the release of the 5th set of Pathfinder pre-painted minis, made by WizKids (of mageknight and heroclix fame), and sold by Paizo. I’m lucky to have been able to amass a fairly large collection of minis over the last 4 years or so, hunting down rare mini’s and importing some from america. …

Revisiting Zanzer Tems Dungeon

ZTA3Board

Back near the start of October 2012, I posted on DailyEncounter that I was starting to rebuild Zanzer Tems dungeon from the Basic D&D starter set. I had an initial burst of activity on the project, doing 4 or 5 casts of each mould I own for about a week. And then I dropped my tub of …

Bones of a Warlord

Ok so you are one of the 16000 or so folks that backed the Reaper Bones KS and perhaps you are wondering what you are going to do with all of those miniatures once they arrive (aside from stare at them and wonder what you got yourself into). Obviously you purchased them because they were …

Dressing up Zanzer Tem’s Dungeon

This is part two of my posts documenting my progress of building a 3d version of the classic Zanzer Tem’s dungeon. In this post, I want to talk about the moulds i’m using and how I’m aiming on giving the dungeon its own characteristics once i’m finished casting. Base – I’m using a fairly typical …

Back to Bases

Wow the Reaper Bones Kickstarter raised an amazing $3,429,236 and some 17744 people backed the project most of them backing at the $100 level and receiving over 200 miniatures for their enjoyment (myself among them) in March next year. The thing is the Bones miniatures come with what is called a broccoli base, a lightly …

Bones Size Comparison

I saw some searches looking for a size comparisons for the Reaper Bones miniatures and so I thought I would supply a quick image for reference. Now I don’t have any human sized Bones miniatures yet, but the miniatures are standard Reaper sizes and are comparable to most miniatures lines. From left to right this …

Speed Painted

I have been painting my Ravenloft miniatures as mentioned in got them bones because I sorted out a method of painting miniatures quickly to a “gaming table” standard.This method doesn’t produce high quality results such as you might see places like Cool Mini or Not, or in the display pages of miniatures companies, but it …

Got them Bones

They are certainly not a new release, but the Bones line of miniatures from Reaper Miniatures is certainly new enough that I thought they warranted some time. Reaper is a company whose metal miniatures I own quite a few of and they are one of the few companies producing miniatures with role playing games like …
