Very nice! Your face and hair work is really, really good! The red accents in the crossbowmen jumps out as a great detail but my favorite has to be the loan Archer. Overall he's just great. Thanks for sharing!

The take way thought in the video was, it can clean up spills. Hmmm... I guess I need that.

<t>This sounds good to me as well. I can't wait to see a "rules light" take on this. The last few month's I've been re-reading Swords & Spells thinking about setting up some old school battles for my son but this sounds like something I'll have to buy instead. Looking back I never took to Warham...

Started painting mini's again

<r>I started playing C&C with my son and some of my older playing group this year. One thing led to another and miniatures came up. So my son got a couple of really nice reaper figures which I just didn't think I was up to the task of painting so I sent them off to EggofCoot along with a few old...

<t>I think Serleran is pointing out that the question is of scope. Think about something like Greyhawk and Oerth. Oerth is huge but most of the first decade of almost everyday adventuring took place in a small area Greyhawk. So if you are trying to map out a huge amount of land with cultures, langua...

Is this the Black Box? I have my 5th Edition Black Box but it's a little beat up [teen years also] but I must say it is probably the coolest looking Box set ever.

Good old Gord! I was lucky enough to follow the series back in the 80's when TSR put out the first 2 and New Infinities put out the rest. It is a must for Gygax/Greyhawk fans.

I'd love to see the gods of Sumer included. A common view is if the Egyptian's taught us about Heaven then the Sumerian's taught us about Hell. Just my two cents [and I even stopped lurking and made an account to post that ]
