Re: Paint Brushes for Dry brushing

I've got a couple of these (sometimes the kids want to help on larger projects). Michael's Link . Whatever brush you get just keep cleaning them. Soap and luke-warm water. I keep going until the brush's suds are white without a tint of whatever paint color I was using. Since I started doing that aft...

Re: Caverns starter pack!

It sounds interesting, but I'm lost trying to figure out what is actually in the starter pack. There are several mentions but none seem to actually list contents. So, what am I missing? Thanks.

Re: storing the LEd pieces?

Sorry, phone and storage are in the other rooms. But I've put a piece of thin (1/4") foam into my drawer. I just stick the pins into that. The pieces stay still and the pins don't bounce into each other.

Re: First impressions of Encounters 1 - 6

I think the intent there is you start out with a straight Gauntlet, then swap in that little cul de sac whenever you spring the spike wall mechanism on your victim. Sorry. Yes, that was my interpretation as well. There is a little bit of cannibalizing pieces to do it, but still worth it for the "su...

Re: First impressions of Encounters 1 - 6

Got mine yesterday and set things up "factory default" to make sure that I had everything. A few thoughts: * There is some color variation in mine, but well within the differences between other sets. * I didn't notice any particular warpage on any pieces. Though a few of the wall pieces had tabs wit...

Re: Shipping Update Please

So, what's the timeline looking like for everyone? Once the pre-notification shows up, how long is it before you get the shipping notice? Delivery?

I ask while glancing at my work schedule and the pre-notification in my inbox. . .

Re: Paenitet Me

Despite having gotten in on all of the KSs. Despite buying from the store. Despite grabbing some scores on eBay. My only regrets are that neither my wallet nor my basement are sufficient to keep up with my desires.

Which is a fancy way of saying, "the list of stuff I wish I'd gotten is too long."

Re: Greetings from the Forge! (now with 50% more greetings)

I used to play Amtgard many years ago. Not so much LARPing as running around with boffers in costume. Tons of fun and you can put as much or as little effort into the outfits as you like. I would have loved to see more people as well dressed as your crew.

Re: GMing Style

In the Before Time I ran two FASA Star Trek campaigns. In my head they were in the same timeline. Occasionally word of one ship's adventures reached the other. Finally, I decided a cross-over was a good idea. And so, after weeks of setting things up with both groups, at the appointed time everyone s...

Re: Storing your Dwarven Forge

For the record, one in ten of the "dogs" is actually a cybernetically enhanced uplifted tiger. Nothing but the best security for my Evil Mastermind Base. Er, um, basement storage area for DF. Where did that delete key go?
