    Hero-forge trio

    I've painted a set of HF miniatures. I did not enjoy painting them. I may give it a shot again some day. I want to buy the higher quality printing and see how that works.

    Priming without Obscuring Details

    I've had similar issues with other miniatures and on those area I had to apply multiple layers. I just use white paint and not ones label primer. Thin it down (use filtered water not tap) It only really needs a thin coat. An example is the miniature I'm working on now - Half-Orc Merchant. The layer is thin enough you can still kind of see the metal behind it. I've had no issues with painting on that surface. (picture example below). And as LittleBluBerry said wash your miniatures; drop of Dawn on a toothbrush with warm water.

    03821: Half Orc Merchant

    I did the sign last night but forgot to take a picture. It turned out swimmingly. I looked up "Clay" and found red-ish clay seals and the color just seem to work with the whole model. I practiced a few designs (freehand) and was getting good at them but then realized I was doing them larger than the area I had to paint. Upon trying to paint it on the sign I messed it up a good 5 times. Finally settled on a diamond icon for his sign. Freehanded it on the front and back and detailed it a bit. I'm pleased with the results but it definitely tells me that I need to practice freehand more. I think the cross over skill is just drawing in general. Which I plan to start up this year with Jake Parkers How to draw everything series on SVS
  4. I think I am going to have to sculpt my own anchor for a pirate themed diorama. I can't seem to find one online I like.

    Player finder options?

    There is an interesting App I just found called, GameFor. Not much in my local area but the interface is simple and easy.

    NMM failure

    Honestly, Practice. Dont give up hope. I found a good way to practice over and over is find a large sword (metal) and paint it, clean it off and repaint it. Just keep trying. I would try this. Good practice http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bits/sku-down/14261 This one is nice as well http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bits/sku-down/14293 As well as: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/bits/sku-down/14262 Trust me when I tell you, there will be a break through moment for you. After trying, failing and trying again you will rest for a moment come back to try again and get it. And by get it I dont mean it will be masterwork level, but it will be the basic concept on it. From there you grow. We believe in you! Feel free to start a thread and show your attempts. A LOT of people will give you excellent points.
