  1. Hasslefree Miniatures kickstarter

    Just filled out the PM. I wasn't able to get all the nice things but I was able to get my favorites. I'm especially excited about painting up the living and undead queens fighting each other! Ended up with: Winter Glory Caoimhe, Restless Spirit Ksenia the Unlawful, Accursed Queen Living Ksenia, Accursed Queen Frost Queen, Katarina Shayda Diavol, Berserker Shamanic Boudi Metal Base - Desolation
  2. [SPLIT] Vortex Shakers

    Yep. That's the same one I have, too. Also bought it used from eBay. LOVE it. I don't have any attachments for it other than the normal cup that came with it, but that little thing gets the job done. Here's mine all nestled away in the corner. Right at home surrounded by all those bottles.
  3. Kickstarter idea

    Gotta say, if Reaper ever decides to run a hard plastic mini campaign, I'd go in on it hard. I already love their metal figures and affordable Bones monsters. Still, if they ever came out with hard plastic figures I'd be over the moon! No idea if Reaper's current machine could cast them though.
  4. Paint agitators

    I looked at them a while back and read that a number of miniature painters had rust issues with them. Nail polish agitators all seem to be stainless steel balls which can definitely rust. It's safer to stick to a completely nonreactive material like glass or hematite.

    ^Best answer.^ Now I see why they call you the "Questgiver".
  6. Reapercon 2017 minis online?

    Very true big guy. We all ordered the bags knowing the vendor items might not be in them, so any vendor goodies we happened to get were lagniappe. I'm not too sure it mattered how fast people ordered though. I was checking the store often until it listed and ordered one right away. Just luck of the draw. Besides, I'm very happy with my swag. I really wanted the Reapercon exclusive ♡paints♡ and minis more than anything else. The other stuff would've been great but they weren't con exclusives. I'll order the Darksword archer along with a few others and I'm already backing the X-Case kickstarter. The only Reaper swag mini that wasn't in my bag was Hotfoot, and I wasn't as into that one. Moustopheles was in there and he was the one I really wanted. As far as luck of the draw goes my bag was a nice score. Even snagged a rock in a blister.
  7. Reapercon 2017 minis online?

    My swag bag didn't have the Darksword mini, the Stynylrez primer, the X-case, the convention guide or anything from the Dreadmere setting other than the River Widows mini. I did get a package of nice looking basing foliage from Frontline games and the Happy Seppuku Clockwork pad. I guess it was luck of the draw. It was worth it even without some of the vendor extras.
  8. Paint agitators

    I ordered both 6mm & 8mm hematite beads from Amazon a couple years ago to use as agitators. They both fit fine in Reaper bottles, but I prefer the 6mm ones. They're plenty heavy and actually move easier in thicker paint than the 8mm ones. The difference is so noticeable that when I ran out of the 6mm, I ordered another pack, even though I still have plenty 8mm beads left.
  9. Eternally Clogged Paint

    I also ordered a pack of spare tips after receiving a miscast tip. Glad I did. They're definitely helpful when you find an uncooperative tip. I'll back you up on that. I did the same thing on two tips. One had a crazy tiny opening and the paint wouldn't flow out without a little too much squeezing. Another had a bit of plastic hanging onto the inside of the tip. A paperclip didn't help. A small drill bit in a pin vice cleared up both issues.
  10. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I agree. Again, as far as armor goes, the duelist is glorious. I only wish she was a suitable PC fighter mini because I like the design so much. She reminds me of the Flower Knight from Kingdom Death. Worth getting her in metal for display.
  11. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I thought raised heels were developed for securing horse riders in their stirrups? I know there were chopine shoes that raised the whole foot above the filth, but those were very distinct from high heels. I'm not trying to criticize the sculpt. She has one of the nicest armor designs I've seen in a long time. Just giving feedback on the one thing that I feel makes the figure less useful than it could be for my specific purposes (a PC or NPC fighter). If she is meant to be a noble in decorative of ceremonial armor then the shoes are completely fine. She just couldn't fight or ride a horse in those. There's nothing wrong with a beautifully dressed noble that isn't fit to fight.
  12. Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Speaking of shoes, I love everything about the duelist except her footwear. A sword fighter in high heels is pretty awful. Her armor, clothes, head, hair and weapons are all gorgeous. Those heels though... *cry*
  13. Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

    I'm pretty much in the same boat. I can only get a couple figures right now. I probably shouldn't, but nobody makes Firbolg minis and Catfolk come few and far between. For the love of Volo I wish I could get more.
  14. Heroines in Sensible Shoes 3

    I'm in. Some of these are sorely needed in the hobby.
  15. Kingdom Death: Monster 2

    I wouldn't use superglue for these. It'll work, but thin plastic cement will give a much stronger hold. For assembly, the only other tool you might need is a hobby knife to trim a connection here or there. Vibrant Lantern has a nice write up on assembly tools here. I use a different version of everything they recommend with no issues. Tamiya Extra Thin Cement is probably the most popular.
