    Spaceships

    Not happy with how my brybrushing attempts on the veskarium transport turned out. As in "I should strip this mess and start over."

    Most of the sculpts are repeated 2x or 3x in the bag, which can be good or bad depending on what you're looking for.

    Technically, I got them as a gift. However, I see a 72-pack of them is selling for about 4 USD on Amazon.

    From left to right: * The windows of the diasporan pirate ship needed a lot of touch-up work, but are starting to look ok. * Got new paints in and put them to use on the diasporan transport. Now getting ink drying on its top. * Ink on the top of the veskarium transport is drying. To answer earlier questions; even with a proper scrubbing, MSP primer isn't drying on my test model. Must be something in the plastic of these ships that doesn't go with it.

    Testing MSP primer after a proper scrubbing overnight tonight. I'm using craft smart multi surface premium satin acrylic. It is technically a paint rather than a primer. After tonight's work, the last primer coat coat is drying on the Pact Worlds Corvette. The base coat is drying on the Diasporan Pirate Ship And ink is drying on the underside of the Veskarium Transport.

    So I got a cheap bag of spaceship toys to use for Starfinder ship combats. They'll work unbased and unpainted, but why settle? MSP brush-on primer didn't dry properly on my first test subjects. Backing up and consulting Amazon reviews, I try a coating of all-surface white acrylic as primer. After a couple hours that's dry, and I start layering a base coat on the Veskarium Transport.

    Spaceship toys. What primer to use?

    My apartment's not very conducive to using sprays. But after a good scrubbing and a priming with all-surface white acrylic, I'm getting good results, see my thread in works in progress.

    Spaceship toys. What primer to use?

    Like a fool who's not painted anything in a year and a half, I did indeed forget to give these the most basic soap and water washing. No wonder I'm having problems.
  9. So I got a bulk pack of toy spaceships to use as proxies in Starfinder ship combats. They'll work as-is, but I was hoping to pretty them up some. The material feels similar to bonesium, but can't be sure. Mounted three on flight pegs and primed them with Reaper MSP brush-on primer. 12 hours later, the primer is still tacky. Any suggestions on other ways to prime and paint these things?
  10. Curses, I got in on bones 3, but all the armory sets I ordered were the regular solid grey kind.
  11. So Starfinder is out, and introduces a class with the gimmick of using a blade of pure sunlight or shadow. I think a clear blade with a yellow/golden wash will work for the photon blade, but where can one get clear swords or sword blades for 28mm minis?

    Got it just in time to take to my friend for a paint commission.

    Viking Elliwyn

    Finally got glue, shield went on without too much trouble. Axe is being problematic. The plastic in these wizkids minis isn't as malleable as bonesium. Made a mess of glue and have to back off a bit while it drys.

    Viking Elliwyn

    Getting things pinned up, and then I realize I haven't seen my glue since I moved to this apartment. Oh well, I was already going by a FLGS tomorrow.
  15. I need a mini suitable for a halfling viking, and I love doing weapon swaps. What more is there to say? Elliwyn will provide the body, while this generous gnoll will provide the round wooden shield. May need a fine file or sandpaper to get residual bits of gnoll arm off that shield. Unless I get a better idea, one of these gents is going to "donate" an axe. Probably Hakon (center) since he's from a non-random set.
