So I have gone back to Ebay. I did this b/c I have been searching for what feels like forever to replace some of my minis from sets that survived a house fire. The Menzoberranzan set was missing two figures Jaxx and Carcelen, and the Heroes set is missing Flint Fireforge. I believe I have been pretty damn lucky to find any at this point that are not in sets, or giant lots. Why the sudden the need to complete the sets? I don't really know. There is no real reason I can give for wanting to re-complete the sets. Granted it's only three figures. If I even had the boxes or had them still inside the boxes, they'd be worth a lot. So why now? No clue. Why do I swing from one project to another every other week? I dunno. I just know I do. It's sad that the best dwarven figure up to that point in time is the Flint figure, but why in god's name is he so expensive?! 25 bucks? :jawdrop: Are you freaking kidding me?! Granted I have been searching for Jaxx and Carcelen more than Flint. I forgot Flint was part of the box set. I should find Flint and a Kitiara to actually complete that full Heroes set. Though Kitiara is not really part of the mini set, it would be nice to include her b/c well, she is in the heroes books. For those that do not know, I am talking about The Chronicles Trilogy by
 Margaret Weis and Tracy Hickman  AKA referred to as the Heroes of Dragonlance in the mini world. Kitiara was the love interest for Tannis Half-Elven then she seduces Sturm Brightblade, if you wanted to know the connection. I really enjoyed reading that series. It's one of my top favorites of the Dragonlance Realms. But I have now gone off topic. I am still trolling Ebay for these missing pieces. I hate trolling about Ebay, so many poorly labeled minis. I hate bidding on something and having a bidding war over something that shouldn't be more than 5 bucks a figure. Last time I was on Ebay was years ago, trying to get pieces of Dark Tower, a old game that I totally loved playing with my BF at her house all the time. Curse you Ebay. But I still love you and crawl back to you still hoping.

***UPDATE***

After almost 20 years of searching, I finally can say I have the last figure that was lost of the Menzoberranzan set. As stupid as this seems to others, I am delighted. In about a week, I will have the complete set again. 

-Bump-

Was able to find and buy the last two figures, Flint Fireforge and Kitiara Uth Matar for the Heroes Set, even though Kitiara is not part of it.

***THANK YOU!***

I have actually finished the big wing of my dragon on the Castle, pics will be posted soon. So I have the smaller one on the right to mess with and it will be back stitching time! Once that is complete I will be working on the Lemon Rant from Portal 2 as well as some gamer free hand stuff I was thinking about doing but never thought I could or should try to do. As for the mini side of everything, besides the Ebay stuff. I have been cleaning and carefully going over the Dark Maiden by Reaper minis. So far the dry fitting looks pretty awesome. I have to pin her arms though, there is not much of a surface there for me to just glue her arms on. AND Lastly, I have found my wonder cleaner for the minis. Best thing ever, Simple Green. Strips the paint off, doesn't harm the mini (metal or plastic) but it doesn't really do anything to super glue, so that is a plus in a way. I don't have to worry about having to redo any gluing, which is great. But it also is poop b/c if the piece did not glue right or too much was added it does nothing to remove the excess. I just like the no harsh smell and the paint just sloths off with warm water and a soft old tooth brush. I have many little minatures that are in need of a repaint. So :happycry: I got Lancelot's horse completely cleaned. There is still some soot here and there but it's small and NOT nearly as notable. I can repaint him and he won't look like total crap! And now that I have written a novel it's time for me to stop, finish my bids on Ebay, and go back to painting my awesome little minis.

I am a Nerd/Geek and a huge gamer. I love most things that are sci-fi, fantasy and fiction. I am pretty old, and married. Slightly on the oddball/crazy side, but I am never boring. I tend to be very much a birdbrain when it comes to crafts and art. Working on one thing, something else will pop into my head forcing me to stop and go do that other thing or I will go insane. I used to make rich and interesting worlds, characters (the good, the bad) for my hubby to use in our D&D campaigns. Though we stopped playing long ago, I have been trying to write a little about the adventures before they completely leave my head, making room for newer things. Still need to edit and work on those. I work pretty hard on concepts but for what ever reason when I work on them the ideas fall apart and are either forgotten or they stumble out as a giant steaming pile and I am at a lost on how to get it right like it was in my head. As hairbrained as I am, I do manage to once in a while pull off some amazing stuff. But you'll have to stick around to see it when it happens.

How else would I get to see the TW you will stitch some day :) and YW! Sanzo was always a fav of mine :) BTW where did you find that dragon cross stitch you just finished? Most of the craft stores in my area have wolves, cats, prayers, people but no fantasy anything any more. It's sad times.
