where do you get your DnD minis?

matriarch-dacey:

iblamethedice:

As you can see in my pictures, I’m the type of gamer that loves using visuals to represent the characters, NPCs, hazards, and terrain at the game table. I love miniatures - and I especially love customizing them.

I get my miniatures from a large variety of places. If I can, I get them locally, because support your Friendly Local Gaming Stores is very important. However, oftentimes it’s difficult to get exactly what I need locally. That’s when I get my miniatures online. Here’s a list of the places I shop for miniatures online:

  • Miniature Market - MM is the Mecca of minis. They carry a wide variety of brands (including the now out-of-print WotC D&D Minis), and their shipping is freaky fast. You can find almost anything you need on their site, and it’s easy to navigate by brand, and they have a functional search option as well.
  • Troll & Toad - T&T has a good size collection of miniatures for sale, and they’re organized and searchable by type. The downside is they are often out of stock, and their shipping tends to be slower than other companies. 
  • RPG Shop - RPG Shop is based out of good ol’ Milwaukee! They have a great site that sometimes is a little glitchy, but has all their RPG Minis sorted by race/class and by brand. While they don’t carry a ton of brands, they include a small mystery gift (usually a couple dice or a MtG car in each order!
  • Paizo - It makes sense that the company that publishes Pathfinder would sell miniatures, and boy do they!  They have a huge variety of RPG minis available on their site, all sorted by brand, and with a little work, searchable. They have a ton of stuff that is hard to track down anywhere else too, so if you’re looking for something unusual, I suggest poking around their site for a while. Be warned though, Paizo runs high on prices when in comes to WotC pre-painted plastic minis. Additionally, Paizo makes a number of miniatures (as paper minis, cardboard pawns, metal, and pre-painted plastic) that are designed to go along with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Check them out!
  • Reaper Miniatures - Reaper is the go-to place for metal miniatures. They have the largest variety of sculpts available, and their site is full of great products for a variety of genres. Recently, Reaper ‘kick-started’ its Bones plastic miniatures line, which offers their traditional metal minis in a ready to paint soft plastic at a great price. 
  • Sean K. Reynolds Games - The Etsy store of one of Pathfinder’s designers features metal miniatures he has painted and use in his home and office games. The prices are really reasonable for the amount time he put into them, and it’s kind of cool to think, “Hey, someone that designed the game I’m playing right now used this miniature in their game.” I highly recommend looking over his stock, because he has miniatures from several years back to the present, painted and ready to ship.

Finally, if you haven’t backed the kick-starter for Hero Forge, go do so right now! While I cannot vouch for the quality of the miniatures (because I haven’t had the opportunity to handle them yet and compare them with what’s already out there), Hero Forge is on the cutting edge of RPG miniature technology promising to offer the first fully customizable 3-D Printed miniatures for our game tables. It’s just too cool to pass up.

So there’s my list. If you know of a store I didn’t list, be sure to message me about it so I can spread the word. Happy shopping!

Great recommendations here.  I like to browse fantization miniatures if I can’t find what I like elsewhere. They’re search engine is kinda wonky, so it is a last resort. :P

I love Jim Carrey. I once met him in a 7/11, and I was getting a soda, I turned and saw it was him, and he saw I was going for a Doctor Pepper, so he said “Oh did you want one of these”, to which I stuttered out a yes and he grabbed all of them and said “too bad” and brought them up to the front. Then he bought his stuff and left the sodas there, and left. Almost immediately after, he ran back in and began putting the sodas back and paid for mine.

This is what happens when Canadians are let lose and try to prank people

Gotta love the Canadians.

how about for day of silence straight people have to be quiet and listen to queer people all day

but what if this were a thing: like, straight people were physically unable to talk for a day, and this guy has been pining over his best friend for years, but he’s given up hope. and then they’re all at lunch (and it’s really quiet, because most of the people can’t talk), and they’re playing silent pranks on each other, and a friend keeps poking the best friend until finally he opens his mouth and yells out “STOP THAT ALREADY,” and then looks down at himself really confused that he’s actually able to talk, and everyone at that table drops their forks in surprise, except for the boy, who just breaks out into this toothy, happy grin

ahhhlec
please hijack this sweetie. turn this into a fic. make me happy

excuse me NO

please do not derail my valid criticism of an oppressive practice to turn it into a stupid fucking fanfiction jesus fucking christ why do I even have to say this

Queer people aren’t your fucking entertainment

Look, I’m sorry, but I don’t think ahhhlec meant any offense or that queer people are ‘entertainment.’ Also, your post indicates that only trans/homosexual people have problems, so ‘straight’ people should just listen to them all day and wouldn’t be able to
talk. I think your post offends straight people more than ahhhlec’s offended queers.

I don’t care what they meant, they’re derailing a post about an important issue that effects queer people to talk about a stupid story.

and your ignorance is ASTOUNDING. It does NOT imply that only trans/homosexual people have problems. It is talking about a practice that is ALREADY IN PLACE that is supposed to be about helping queer people, but, once again, silences them, so it is problematic and I am pointing that out. I joked that instead of queer people being quiet about our struggles, straight people should have to be quiet and listen for once in their fucking lives.

Also, why did you put the word ‘straight’ in scare quotes? do they scare you? do you not believe they exist? I wouldn’t blame you on either count.

And I couldn’t give less pf a flying fuck if I offend straight people. STRAIGHT PEOPLE LITERALLY MURDER QUEER PEOPLE LIKE ME EVERY DAY. So no, I don’t give half a shit if they’re offended by a joke that I made because it literally does not effect them at all.

But, you see, it’s not derailing. It’s supposed to reinforce the idea, okay? If you just read it over you’d see. Maybe you’re a bit stressed out, that’s why you’re ‘yelling’ at me.
I’m sorry, I really am ignorant regarding this silence day. Now, re-reading the sentence, I see that it is probably a day reserved for respect to queers, right? I apologize for not getting that before, but my arguments still stand, you know. No one here is looking for a fight or an argument, alright? But I don’t think there’s a need for you to say my ‘ignorance is astounding.’
I don’t know what scare quotes are, but I use ‘these’ for an expression. Because straight is actually heterosexual, and I didn’t know if saying it without the quotes could lead someone to believe I respect them any less. And yes, I do believe straight people exist since I am one of them.
I can just hope you re-read your last paragraph once you’re more calmed down, because you made some strong accusations in there. Generalization is one of the most dangerous things in the world. You shouldn’t base someone’s ideals in their sexual orientation, did you know that? You probably hate heterosexuals so much because some of them do just that to homosexuals and trans people. But some of them do not compose the entirety of the straight people, and you really should care if you offend anyone. Otherwise you’re just opening a window for people to say the same thing about queers and that is NOT okay. Otherwise this hate will never end, don’t you see? Straight hate doesn’t end queers hate. It’s not going to fix anything.
And please refrain from calling me an ‘ignorant piece of garbage’ in your tags in the future.

It certainly is derailing. My post was not about a ridiculous cutesy fictional little story about cute fictional boys kissing. It was a post about the real life oppression that queer people face. Derailing is exactly what happened when that person tried to make my post, which was about something important, into a silly little story. Now that I’ve explained what derailing means, maybe you understand why it applies in this situation.

You may not be actively pursuing an argument, but if you begin to argue about something that you self-proclaimedly know nothing about, it’s probably not going to end well. Food for thought.

I do not need to calm down. You clearly have no idea the kind of oppression that queer people face. WE. ARE. LITERALLY. MURDERED. IN. DROVES. You, as a straight person, never have to worry about being murdered for the gender that you express affection for, so you can afford to be calm about this matter. I cannot.

Generalization of the oppressor is not, as you say, “one of the most dangerous things in the world”. Ignorant, cruel, evil people who cause harm to other people because of their sexuality, gender identity, etc., who attempt to deny rights to other people because of their sexuality, gender identity, etc., are the dangerous ones. My righteous anger at the fact that myself and people like me are actively and viciously attacked for who we are is not something that needs to be calmed. My distaste for the people who perpetrate these crimes is not something that needs to be quelled.

And newsflash, queer people talking about how terrible straight people can be and often are is not “opening the door” to straight people doing the same to queer people. STRAIGHT PEOPLE DO THAT ALREADY. EVERY DAY. EVERYWHERE. CONSTANTLY. I am never safe from someone saying horrible things about queer people, whether they hide behind the banner of religion or jokes or don’t hide their derision at all. The door has been opened, by straight people, and now they are angry to realize that it swings both ways.

Who the fuck are they to tell you to calm down about people getting killed? Especially when there are politicians and religious leaders saying it’s okay.

And now they are congratulating themselves on the struggles they had to go through by being raised homophobic. These are the kind of people that would either set their friends up because they are both gay, and/or would cringe if they saw them kissing in real life.

"Why isn’t it required by law that children get vaccinated?"—

Because, in general, we acknowledge the sanctity of a person’s bodily autonomy over the desires of the general populace. This isn’t necessarily true in cases of imminent danger (i.e. we will forcibly restrain and confine a person who is a known and immediate danger to the lives of others), but not getting vaccinated doesn’t place other people in immediate jeopardy.

(via sdsimple)

Keep in mind though that while not vaccinating might not put people in immediate danger it still does place people in danger non the less.

"Ugh, I don’t want a single. I’m an adult, I’d like to have sex again." 

…is a thing I said earlier when I was having moving priorities. (I feel like somuchpotential spends a lot of time wondering why she even talks to me.) I did some measuring this evening and I am definitely going to have to get a smaller bed. The queen I have now would take up over half the room in Boston, and as much as I love sleep, my books are ALSO important and need a place. So, it’s to the Ikea website I go. 

I’m actually considering getting one of those high beds that I could just put my dresser or whatever UNDER. Because I guess what an adult needs is DEFINITELY a bunk bed. Dear people of Boston, do not hold this against me if I ever take you home. I’m just coming to terms with EVERYTHING ABOUT MY LIFE changing.

It’s weird. And exciting. And terrifying. And I still don’t want a single. 

I know what you mean about wanting sex and not wanting to be single. 

But don’t get a loft bed.

I don’t know. allofthefeelings and acrossthelines made some pretty solid points about blanket forts and sex against ladders in the For Loft Beds column. 

And in the against column let me add “the motions of the bed from any sort of rigorous sex while in the bed will make you fear that the bed will collapse and destroy it, you, and everything underneath it.” And lets call that a personal story chapter 3.

How many liberals does it take to change a light bulb?

Look, I know we promised change during the election, but right now we have to be pragmatic.

Mostly because our roommate isn’t chipping in on their share of the rent or helping with the chores but is still complaining about the upkeep of the place.

I love how Marvel has the ‘policy’ of “A character can only be in one book at a time!” whereas DC’s like “Yeah, let’s crossover everything even if it makes no sense.”

I would be okay with characters being in more then one book if I knew when they were happening in relation to each other.
