  1. Looking really good! Be wary, that feeling of "everything's going great" generally happens around the midpoint and can subconsciously slow you down and you might start thinking of all these extra steps you can take because things are going so well so you totally have plenty of time......and then a paint mix doesn't work out or you make a big mistake or something comes up in real life and you lose a whole bunch of time unexpectedly. You seem to be going about things in a very smart way though and I'm glad to see that you have a list of things to be done as that will definitely help you along. Keep tackling it that way and you've totally got this!
  2. They're really nicely sculpted scales, at least.
  3. Really gorgeous work as always! It's a really thoughtful piece and makes me wonder if the reflection is us seeing her true self or instead how she sees herself....which when you think about it, may be her true self either way.

    What mini are you most excited to paint? The Stygian Barge. I know most people are all about Dance of Death, and don't get me wrong, I think DoD is gorgeous and I look forward to painting it too, but the barge is calling to me the most. Which mini do you think will be the hardest/take you the longest to paint? The Stygian Barge is going to be really time consuming for sure, but I'm thinking that painting @TaleSpinner's awesome Mystic Portal may prove the hardest to really do it justice. (I didn't get a chance to say so during the KS because I was murdering myself trying to get Ma'al Drakar painted, but I meant to tell you, Andy, how fantastic your portal is - I knew I was getting that expansion the second I saw it!) What mini are you buying the most of (now or planned at retail)? I don't have any plans right now of getting multiples of anything. Mind you, I don't play tabletop games, so I don't have any NEED for multiples of anything like a lot of people do. I had originally thought that I would get multiples of a couple of things, but that's looking less likely since my wants list grew more than I was anticipating. Getting one copy of all of the things I want > getting multiples of anything. Although, now that I think about it, I will likely get the Ghost Pirates in metal if/when they're released because those were some of my absolute favourite sculpts, but I prefer metal for smaller figures. But I'm also getting them in Bones because they're too awesome to pass up. What do you hope to see most in Bones 5? I'll continue to hold out hope that we'll one day see a Cat Dragon.
  5. Way too many glow sticks? No such thing!
  6. I can confirm nothing. I fail at ribbon size. I also don't remember how many I got. Basically I'm useless and just wanted to say hi. *waves*
  7. What?!? The whole reason I joined was to see other people magically turned into newts, squirrels, marble figurines or fried eggs! What a rip-off.
  8. Thanks so much everyone! I'm glad you like my snek! Let me tell you, his eyes are TINY. Like TINY TINY. Fortunately I had done them back in March before he got put on the Shelf of Shame, but as I recall, it was totally a poke the brush at it and pray situation.
  9. I'm in since people came up to me to ask if I was on their card anyway and all I did was disappoint them when I said no. Guindyloo/avatar/the whole shebang
  10. @knarthex has given airbrush tutorials over the google hangouts before and I'm sure would be happy to walk you through it/give pointers/answer any questions you might have. That preshading is looking very nice and is a great idea to get some good contrast with the colours that you rolled!
  11. It's looking really fantastic! I agree with GW, you can see the gems very clearly in the darker pictures so I suspect that they're much easier to see in person. I think they're a nice detail without being distracting. I hope you put something over the piece while the resin's curing and if you haven't already, I would definitely recommend doing so. Resin tends to attract dust. A clean bowl, wiped out cardboard box (so you're not introducing dust rather than preventing it) etc. will do. I agree with LB, the yellowing looks like it could be a transfer/contamination of some sort. It looks like it might also be on the wings, which I'm pretty sure are still plain Bones. Did you perhaps handle the dragon after you'd been using the play dough that you're using to prop up the base? Are you a smoker that could have nicotine residue on your fingers? Could it be from residue on your fingers from mixing up greenstuff? I'd be really surprised if any paint was yellowing that quickly, in any case. Although I'm honestly not sure if simple normal oils from your fingers could do that. I would suggest picking up a box of latex or nitrile gloves from the pharmacy and wearing those while handling painted pieces. I use them when painting large pieces that I can't help but to handle.
  12. Good luck!!! I'm looking forward to seeing what you do with the big beastie! Since you're attempting to do it in an even more limited amount of time, make sure you take lots of little breaks. This may seem counterintuitive, but trust me, your back and hand will thank you for it.
  13. So I started working on this guy back in March, he was just basecoated with the pattern established (which was based on Rhonda Bender's beautiful example.) This afternoon I decided to pull him off of the Shelf of Shame and finish him up. I should've gone a size up on the base. And as usual, my pictures are terrible but I'm tired. C&C always very welcome.
  14. That's what I do as well if I want a lighter start.
  15. Buglips and I are keeping the hangout warm. Don't worry, we're not keeping it THAT warm.
