My First Painted Army

July 19, 2018

A couple of months ago I posted about how I’d gotten into the new edition of Necromunda.  Well, now I’ve gotten into the current edition of Warhammer 40K (thanks Randy), and soon, Kill Team and Adeptus Titanicus – I’ve been bitten by the GW bug hard.

I painted up a gang of Orlocks for Necromunda, which was my first experience painting minis.  They turned out decently, though I may be biased. 🙂

This, however, is my first time painting an entire army: Adeptus Mechanicus and Imperial Knights.


About 750 points worth of AdMech and Knights

Again, while not professional level quality, I think they turned out pretty decent, especially considering my lack of experience.  And it was a lot more fun than I’d imagine it would be.


This is a better picture

I’m looking forward to painting up some Kill Team, uh, kill teams in a couple of weeks, and in late August some warlord titans from Adeptus Titanicus.


Zombicide: Invader

April 23, 2018


Just FYI, Cool Mini or Not has another Zombicide Kickstarter going, this time for a sci-fi version of the game.  If you want to pick up a bunch of sci-fi minis at a good price, it’s a great deal.  Just 10 days to go on the Kickstarter.



Bones 4 Kickstarter – Final Call

August 29, 2017

The Bones 4 Kickstarter is in its final few days.  A C-note (plus shipping) gets you 134 minis, plus plastic bases.


Bones 4 Kickstarter Launches Today

August 1, 2017


The new Reaper Bones 4 Kickstarter launched today.  It’s already close to 60 miniatures for $100 (plus shipping, of course).  Past experience has shown that they normally get up to around a 100 minis for the Core pledge by the end, so it’s quite a bargain if you can spring for the $100.


Reaper Bones 3 Kickstarter

July 6, 2015

reaperbones3 This is just a quick heads-up that Reaper’s Bones III Kickstarter launches tomorrow (10 AM Central Time, July 7th), for those who may be interested.  You can usually get a pretty decent deal on a large group of miniatures.  Cheers.

Edit:  Here’s the link to the actual Kickstarter campaign.  They’ve already hit $395,000!

Reaper Bones II Kickstarter – 4 Days Left

October 22, 2013

There are only 4 days left for the Reaper Bones II Kickstarter, so if you were thinking about pledging you don’t have much time left.

A $100 pledge gets you all of this:


If $100 is too steep for you then you can pledge just $1, which lets you buy into the less expensive options and expansions.


Bones II Update

October 2, 2013

So, in 24 hours the Reaper Bones II Kickstarter has already pledged over $1 million dollars.  Damn, those guys (and gals) at Reaper really know how to run a Kickstarter project.  The core pledge level gets you over 100 figures for $100…and that will almost certainly continue to grow.

Okay, so that’s probably all I’ll say about Reaper Bones for a while, lest anyone get the idea I’m getting paid for this. 🙂  Cheers.

Reaper Bones II

October 1, 2013

So, Reaper’s doing another Kickstarter for Bones II.  This could be a good chance to jump in if you missed the first one.  Unfortunately, they don’t have as many backer levels as the first one:  basically, it’s either $1 or $100, plus any options you want to pay for.  At this point, the $100 core level nets you about 90-ish pieces, though that is likely to increase as the project progresses.


Reaping the Bones

June 26, 2013

Just got the notice that my Reaper’s Bones Kickstarter order is shipping (finally).  I should have it early next week.  I’ll post some pics when I get ’em.



Reaper Bones Kickstarter – Last Day

August 24, 2012

The Reaper Bones Kickstarter project is getting down to its last day.  So far it’s garnered $2.3 million in pledges!

Here’s what a $100 Vampire level pledge gets you:

That’s somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 plastic minis, and still climbing.
