My Dwarven Adventurers Boxed Set Has Arrived!

Too Much Flash?
I'll be the first person to admit I don't know how to take pictures of minis, let alone unpainted ones, so forgive the quasi focus ;)

I am very happy with my set of dwarves. The level of detail is quite excellent.

I have a crapload of flash to trim, but that was to be expected and I'm okay with that. I love the amount of modability one has with all the extra pieces. Not that I'm skilled at modding - I'd probably f' the whole piece up, but it's nice to have the option. I can always build a Dwarven Flesh Golem of sorts.

I do wonder why the dwarven tombstone is slotted for use with a base. It's not like its going to move around, and if I saw off the slow it will stand just fine. I think I'll trim flash and mold lines in my spare time ;)

Not Enough Flash?
The first piece I want to paint is the brewmaster (this is a Tavern, isn't it?) but I'm going to wait for my Reaper miniatures to show up before I start delving into it all. Shit, and a pair of bifocals - my eyes are 45 years old and not getting any younger.

  1. damn. now i regret not going in on these.

    i know of some mini painters that consider it cheating, but one the most useful hobby-related gifts i ever got was a hands-free magnifying visor with LED. It's made life so much easier when painting. My hand isn't always steady, but at least i can see what i'm trying to paint!

  3. No kidding. I finally had to start wearing glasses last year. It got to the point where if I tried to read small text (say on a bottle of asprin), by the time it would come into focus it would be too far away to read. I'm olde.
