Welcome Back to the Labyrinth

"We have been away far too long, my friends," Ashoka declared, his face lit by the eldritch green glow of his staff. "But we have finally returned to the labyrinth whence our adventures first began."

"Just imagine the treasures that lie within," said Yun Tai, flexing his mighty muscles. "Wealth enough to live in luxury the rest of our days."

"And arcane artifacts of great power," added Ashoka his words dripping with avarice. "All ours for the taking!"

"Umm...guys?" Nysa interrupted. "Do you hear something dripping?"

Unboxing the Bones

This afternoon while in the midst of editing stories for Libram Mysterium, which are coming in at a steady pace, my long-awaited Reaper Bones Kickstarter shipment arrived.  A disciplined man would have finished the story he was currently editing.  I am not such a man.

I did restrain myself enough to take pictures before ripping into the package and strewing the contents about the house, so I thought I'd share what a Vampire level box of miniatures looks like:


1. The 11-pound carton that UPS delivered to my door:


2. The box of Bones miniatures and the three miniature storage cases that were add-ons to the Kickstarter:


3. The insides of one of the storage cases (150 figure capacity):


4. And finally, the miniatures themselves (click to embiggen):


It took me nearly an hour to open each individually-wrapped miniature and set them up.  There are still some unopened packages in the background consisting of a small horde of goblins and rats that I still haven't opened.

This should be enough miniatures to keep me painting for the near future.  Of course there is still the odious task of washing and prepping each one and removing mold-lines.  To quote Homer Simpson: "Can't somebody else do it?"

Well, back to editing.  Keep those submissions coming, I'm starting to catch up!

Looks like you and your daughter have a lot of painting to do together. I love the cases that they provided for everyone.

Yes we do, Tim. My daughter just claimed dibs on all the best miniatures of the lot - the ones that I wanted to paint. :(

Throw a d20 into the pile and paint the closest one!

That's great that you were able to take pictures first, before getting that box open. Good deal.

Meanwhile, I set the morning aside to work on my side of the office and I dunno what happened, but I ended up coupoing instead.

Funny how that is.

Good for you, Whisk! Never do today what you can put off until tomorrow!

Hahaha, that's right.
