Savage Encounters Complete Set arrived!

Well, that was fast! Auggie's delivered my complete set today, along with a Gauth for me to mount on my crawler and an Eye of Flame to turn into a snowball.

Very exciting.

Didn't have a chance to look through the minis before rushing off to rehearsal, but can't wait to start getting them up on the shelves. Perhaps I can do a partial review tomorrow. Right now, need to get back to rehearsal.

Updated 2E Monster Index

I've updated the 2E citation index with quite a few more supplements, and included a list of the source materials at the bottom of the page. This brings the number of listed monsters to just under 1500 creatures.



Savage Encounters

I just ordered my complete set of these minis from Auggie's. Buying a complete set online isn't as much fun as ordering 3 cases and ripping them open like Christmas morning on new minis day, but this is the world we live in now. I've just heard too many stories of people getting two identical cases to risk it.

I'll let you know what I think when the complete set arrives. I haven't been able to buy any boosters yet. None of the local hobby stores (fewer every day) have been able to keep them in stock and Barnes & Nobel Booksellers don't ever seem to get sets in until after the next one comes out.


On the upside, I've been able to squirrel away some time in the basement to update my monster citation list with a few more newly acquired Monstrous Compendium Annuals (3&4) and I'm going to try and get some more of these monsters on my game table alphabetized and cataloged on the shelf before the new minis arrive.

New Minis Day

And all I got was a lump of Orc feces.

Well, New Minis Day isn't quite the same since the non-random packaging. I think for the most part it is better, but I really miss getting those three cases of miniatures and hoping for a complete set out of them.

The thrill of collecting isn't quite what it was now that I wait to the end of the month and go to Troll and Toad to buy the individual pieces.

In any event, I am still eager to get the minis from this and the next monster sets, I think they are stunning and can't wait to add them to the shelves in the basement.
