    Texas, y'all
  1. Yeah, that had me confused as well - I was searching for 'bases' but did not get the new ones (I was specifically looking for the 60x35mm oval bases). This seems to be because they have no tags/keywords, so please add the keywords :)
  2. Wait, I just saw your other thread - this is one one of your early works and you already figured out blending? o_O I haven't even dared to try it myself yet after years of painting, lol. Du har mycket hög potential on du fortsätter såhär :) Keep it up!
  3. Nice little conversion that works well, and I particularly like the blending work :)

    Reaper Bones 3: Post-Kickstarter Discussion

    Same here, I finally caved and bought a second Graveyard expansion because I just want more of it all :) Like the previous KS there was one expansion that didn't appeal to me enough though, this time it was the Stoneskull expansion. There are certainly a few minis in there I want but not enough for the price tag. So I'm just hoping they don't take too long to come out in individual packaging after fulfillment, but at the same time I'll have plenty of Bones to tide me over in the meantime... ;)
  5. Aha! Never heard of "dark cork" before, but that did indeed bring up some results on Amazon. Thank you, will order some to try it out right now :)
  6. Very nice work! Where are you finding the thick and sturdy cork sheets/tiles? I've tried to find them in California but to no avail - everyone just seems to stock the thin bendy cork sheets, whether at the DIY stores like Home Depot or the craft stores like Hobby Lobby/Michaels. I even tried Staples but no dice.
  7. I'm intrigued but torn, I have plenty of tiles already but some of the specialty stuff is definitely interesting. The waterfall is a nice unique piece. And of course I discovered it in the last 24 hours of the KS, so I have some quick deciding to do. Decisions, decisions... leaning towards getting a few add-on pieces like the skull walls at least, maybe the waterfall even.

    One word describes this better than any other: atmospheric. Brilliant.
  9. if you every make it down to Stockton Valhalla games has a big selection or bones, metal Reaper, Gw, Warmachine, malifax darksword and lots of paint I've heard of them, never gotten around to going down there yet though. Will definitely have to some day, I love browsing blisters :) In the Sacramento area Great Escape Games keep most of the Bones in stock on a wall and also have a variety of metal Reaper figs next to them. Viking Hobby also carries Reaper models on a couple of stands - mostly metal last I checked, but some Bones also. In a completely different area, Dragon's Lair in Austin (Texas) has a huge wall of Reaper metal minis (I didn't even look for Bones, I was transfixed by the amount of metal on display). I didn't actually cross-reference prices, but none of them seemed far out of whack (if at all) from the Reaper prices to the best of my knowledge.

    Dwarven Forge Cavern Tiles

    Such a bad time for this for me economically, but I guess given how much I have used the results of their first kickstarter (not at all, yet) maybe it's for the best that I can't get in on this one. Still, I gaze upon it longingly :)
  12. That dwarf looks awesome, straight out of the fantasy olympics hammer throwing event! Looking forward to seeing the further progress of this project :)

    Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

    Yes, you can pledge for a core set and add the money for another core set, then after the Kickstarter ends you will get a survey to figure out where you want to put the money. :)

    Metallic paint and matte coat = ?

    Thank you, sounds like I am set with matte coat then :)
  15. Hi all, Rather than experimenting wildly I thought I would ask for the expertise of the forumgoers on this matter... if I paint an area of a mini with a metallic color and then apply a matte coat, will the result still look metallic at all or will it be dulled down completely so I should apply a gloss coat (on that area if nothing else)? I ask because for some of my minis I would like to have both matte and glossy parts, and I have never used sealant coats (yet) so I am unsure what the results will be - everything I've read about applying coats has assumed normal paints, not metallic ones, but the metallic paints are perfect for the effect I want. Thank you in advance for any wisdom you can share :)
