    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    I was on youtube and saw a bit where Ken stated Badger produces to fulfill orders rather than to maintain inventory. Production time for an airbrush was 3-5 weeks.

    My package is marked as delivered, so I started a show-off thread.
  3. My partner this time around was Aard who, in the usual forum fashion, had very broad wishes that in the end was narrowed down to rangers w/cloaks. So I ordered an assortment of rangers and started painting one. Then I opened one of the potential gifts and painted it too, so one less gift one more painted mini. The first ranger is very green, so we'll call her the spring ranger, while the other is dressed in the latest fall fashion - the autumn ranger. Also, bonus panther animal companion.
  4. And my start: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84590-rp-challenge-77154-lizardman-spearman/ http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84591-rp-challenge-77248-77249-barrels-crates/
  5. Some low hanging fruit. Two were "primed" with brown liner and painted dark to light, two were not and painted using glaze technique. An easy way to get a different look with the same paints.
  6. One of my goals this year is to work through my pile of unpainted Bones from all the kickstarters. First up, a mini that was used as a test piece and then put back to gather dust for a few years. It was painted fairly quickly using glaze technique, which helped keep me from fussing over the details. One mini off the shelf of shame (or rather, out of the plastic box of shame).
  7. I haven't done this before, but given my yearly goal is to clear out some Bones I'll give it a shot. You have rulz though, so I'll probably break some.

    It was Empire at a mall theater that still exists, but has been sold and remodeled. At the time it did a summer movie program where it would show older movies in the afternoon for some really low price that I don't remember. They were all G/PG and targeted at getting kids (and their parents buying from the concession stand) into the theater during the slow time. There was even some brochure they gave out every spring with movie poster pictures and a list of what week the movies would be shown, so the kids had a few months to pester their parents about it. (we did)
  9. I decided to see what Bones Black looks like for myself, so I ordered a bunch of metal. 03102: Ariel, Dryad (3.99) x1 03371: Brock Battlebow, Dwarf Ranger (5.99) x1 14025: Kyla, Bounty Hunter (5.99) x1 14311: Kassandra of the Blade (6.49) x1 14346: Theda, Mercenaries Cleric (5.99) x1 14356: Haranobu, Okuran Ronin Captain (5.99) x1 14573: Konrad Graniteheart, Kragmarr Guard Sgt (6.99) x1 44001: Reaper Bones Black Owlbear (0.00) x1

    And finally in the mail. I forgot to put in a note so my partner will just have to guess (or wait for my show-off thread).

    Kickstarter failures and moral/financial choices.

    The only PC game I've backed was Obduction, which was probably about as close to a sure thing as you can get in gaming and it still had some delays. Overall I prefer to wait for games to appear on Steam.

    A couple of years ago I accidentally ordered a mini I already had so I started a tracking spreadsheet for everything not Bones. Even better, I've done a pretty good job keeping up with it so I don't have any accidental reorders. I have about 800 minis waiting to be painted. In addition I have many many Bones from KS 1, 2, & 3 languishing in boxes.
  13. I am going to go with work on Bones (have already started in fact). At this point I have too many lying around to even consider backing another KS.

    Both. Some minis are for gaming and some are not. For me its that I need to remind myself that a table top mini doesn't have to be perfect, it just needs to look good from a distance. Unfortunately I find myself spending way more time on a table top piece than I need to.  Indeed. I was much faster back when I picked up the Vampire box than I am now. I have so many Bones I need to work on speeding things up.
