    Getting to Know You for April 2019

    Frequently at work as it is occasionally useful. Not so much when I'm just around the house.
  2. I normally inventory my multipart models when they arrive and then put them away until it's time to clean and paint them. Today I realized that I've about filled my closet with minis, so I need to optimize a bit.

    No, though I know a number of people that do. Our HR secretary was out for several months last year after she fell off of a horse and tore most of the tendons in her forearm. Two surgeries later she's back to work.

    Reapermini New Site Layout

    Everything seems to have worked as intended for me. The only "issue" I've run into so far is some minis appear to have lost their photo sets and now only have one image. These also tend to lack artist credit for the lone painted image.

    College football, though I watch the occasional NFL game. No interest in soccer. I don't watch the show.

    Airbrush protection discussion

    Since you have a functional hood at work @Cyradis, there may be a cheap vaneometer lying around. Once you have your spray hood you could borrow the device and check your face velocity to make sure it pulls enough air. An under powered hood will just provide the illusion of safety, not the protection you're looking for.

    Bones mini turning sticky after a while

    My Bones that went tacky eventually cleared up after a couple of years, so I suppose it depends on how soon you need your mini. As to forming a protective barrier, that's not necessarily true. Materials can be impermeable to one solvent but permeable to another. For example, latex gloves are pretty good against aqueous solutions but some organic solvents will penetrate it. Your skin is a pretty good barrier against a lot of things, but hydrofloric acid or dimethyl mercury will go through it like it wasn't even there. So just because there is some type of resin film between the Bones and your spray, it doesn't necessarily mean it is keeping the spray solvent out.

    No, don't own one. I've never had much of an interest in taking pictures so if it wasn't for minis I'd almost never use my old digital.

    Legends of Signum

    Sigh, it looks like I really will be one of the last.
  10. And they have arrived. Unlike my previous Kimera model, this one shipped with proper packaging rather than green plastic grass. OTOH, the retail box is about four times larger than it needs to be. I guess if the mini immediately jumps to the front of your queue it's not an issue but if you lack storage space... Bad Blood was a more reasonable size. At first glance Life Miniatures casting looks near perfect, though they did leave some good size chucks of resin to trim off.

    Can't say as I've ever had the desire.

    Auberon Paints His Bones...

    I played around a bit more with the copper to get a better feel for it and mixed a bit of white into my highlight instead of using the straight yellow. Towards the end I reached the point of "I'm spending too much time on a test piece" and got a bit sloppy. Note to self, choose smaller test pieces. One other thing of note, I went to do some edge highlighting and discovered that Bones Black does not always give a nice crisp edge. OK, frequently in this case. With metal I could just file it down, but I'm not sure what my best option will end up being for this material.
  13. I had a bunch of Bones that I sprayed with Krylon UV-Resistant Clear and then followed with a coat of Krylon Matte Finish. After about three months they turned so tacky that you could stick the Bones to each other. YMMV of course.

    I don't really eat much dessert anymore, so when I do I try and make sure that it is something different than I had the last time.

    Terrain Essentials

    I decided to back. I don't do terrain often, but a good resource is welcome for when the time comes.
