when everything in reach ends up in the mouth, that is the hardest time for minis and game stuff.

We just had a new baby (2 months as I write), so my time to paint is a bit scarce right now.
Hey Congratulations :)

as long as you can rock a cradle with your foot while you paint - you should have a few months still of painting opportunities :)

After that your on your own ;)

Congrats on the new little one :D Hopefully you're past the no sleep phase.

I've collected very few minis, and most of those were about 20yrs ago. Lol. Now that I have finally been able to indulge in my desire to paint, I'm being a bit... or sometimes more than a bit, picky :) I have a limited environment and budget at this time and I am just trying to fill my niche. I do appreciate all the helpful comments and links. As my budget goes up, I'm sure I'll be hitting that variety out there and stocking up :)
I was in your position more or less not that long ago. Now I am getting a bit more particular. I can field enough dwarves for a skirmish game. Same for drow, elves, and several others. Now I am reluctant to buy something unpainted unless it is special since my backlog has gotten a bit heinous. We just had a new baby (2 months as I write), so my time to paint is a bit scarce right now.

I use colonials all the time. The worst you have to do is buzz off the corners of a tricorne...and I don't usually bother. Its a FANTASY medieval game, not a fantasy MEDIEVAL game!!

Anyway, on Aesira, humans have been Arriving from all eras, MOSTLY medieval (80%) but some from every other era - for seven years I had a player who was a Swiss Arrivee M.D. from 2007, who arrived with a 7mm hunting rifle, scope, large caliber pistol, pack with camping gear, 100 rounds of ammo for each weapon and a full medical cabinet she happened to be touching when she was Removed.....

Yeah, minis are the ultimate mix and match accessory. Them and dice. No need to get all your mini and dice needs from one company.

I saw the ones at Turnkey. They are nice, but I was thinking more like someone fixing a net or carrying crates or supplies and not quite so Colonial in dress. I just didn't see a lot of different ones and figured since there was mention of a desire by Stefan to create a DF line of docks... This would give them some unique figures that they could tie in with both a docks set and with the tavern patrons everyone seems to desire

A docks set and minis to match would be a nice sub-genre for a future KS.

I really do not envy Stefan trying to choose what minis to include in his minis KS.
I'm definitely not against DF doing a full set of docks/wharfs with accompanying minis. Workers, sailors, and maybe a couple folks doing odd jobs like mending nets, pulling up a crab pot, etc. I just thought I'd mention they are out there so you can grab a few if you want. I also like variety, so while I am likely to buy DF minis in general, I may still buy the same theme from another source as well.
