    trying to sculpt minis for my players. seeing how it works. using fimo on a paper clip armature, haha
    get some greenstuff (milliput, I think it's called) or you're going to end up with featureless blobby guys.

    shit's cheap if you get it from, basically, anybody but GW

    pretty good rule of thumb

    I showed half my players (they were the only ones around) my lego versions of their characters

    I think they were pretty happy with them! they were especially pleased with the dwarf ranger

    I'm running it again tomorrow but I doubt they'll see much combat

    still I think they're going to like these better than the D&D minis stuff

    I just wrote a D&D PM to my players that broke the character limit.

    8,500 characters.

    I need help or something, it's like I could just write campaign background info and character archetypes vs. party composition for forever. It is probably very annoying, I am sorry players.

    My D&D group uses a phpBB board for posting about the game.

    There's one forum for in-game stuff, and one for out-of-game stuff.

    The in game forum has two sub forums. One of these is a in-game guide to the history, power groups and current instability to the area the game take place in.

    There are 8 threads and 37 posts in this *sub* forum. All mine.

    Each post probably averages multiple hundred characters, plus a hosted image.

    So yeah, I get how that can be.

    The only thing you're getting in the mail is my foot up your ass. Don't ask how that can be mailed. Just believe.
    Nah, we're okay. One of my buddies called and DE?AD and I hit town with 'im.


    Fantastic pictures, Janson!

    Seriously, having a player in the group that can draw is so wonderful- and you are all so accepting of my increasingly insane ideas.

    I'm just trying to provide a friendly warning

    fimo doesn't like holding fine detail at all. It's great for the base forms, but for all the detail (face, armor, hair, hands, etc) you're going to want something that can accept and retain a stronger amount of detail, and greenstuff is perfect for it.
