Well, for those who don't already know, Reaper began another Bones Kickstarter on the first day of the month, and up until now I had resisted; as the box of mostly still unpainted Bones from the last Reaper Kickstarter is till sitting next to my painting table. It was good incentive not to buy in.
However, I am weak when it comes to such quantities of nice inexpensive minis, so I knew it was only time before I caved. So today in a weak moment I went and pledged. Oh, well, my painting queue is now full for the next few years. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. If I can only finish the first Bones Kickstarter box before the projected delivery of December 2014 for the second. :-)
I was at the Maryland Renn Fair yesterday, and was happy to see a number of well done Steampunk outfits being worn. Also, an iron-worker artist selling there at the fair had a number of really nice steampunk weapons for sale in his stall. See below for some shots of some of the folks I saw. Sorry for the picture quality, but all I had was my phone's camera.
