  1. Oooh. I really like that blue-green on the dead barge people. I love the “ombré” look from using less color in the material.
  2. I don’t think he fits.....
  3. Mine too! *joins the wild flailing*
  4. Happy Dance! I have postage. 22lbs Locked on 9-12 Ordered a Chicken Hut, but no other Minis of Doom Got postage at 10AM.
  5. @NebulousMissy, Have you tried updating your address in the pledge manager? I think I recall them saying in past kickstarters that you can update your address (almost until) the label prints out. With the US just getting started, it seems there might be enough time for you to get your stuff at your new location.
  6. Well, I was planning to skip a round, but with Bones 4 starting to ship..... i’m In again too. Columbus, OH Not international this time. Not a starter.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I know that museum. Not sure how long you have been in the area, but they used to have the entire series like #2 on display when they were first done. The artist and models were all locals, IIRC, and based on other paintings in the collection. They used to be displayed side-by-side.

    Frost Blue and Steel Wash

    That is pretty convincing. Bookmarked for future reference.

    Great job on all three. Great color scheme. They are stunningly vibrant. I was going to give away all my Bones 4 owlbears, but you just convinced me to paint at least one. Edit: I know the bones 4 mini will be different than any of these, but until I saw these, I was skeptical of the more-bear-less-owl version that is coming out. I always liked the more-owl style from the original Bones set.
  10. Yup. I don’t care that there were no pictures today. I only wanted to get confirmation that the container made it safely out of China before the new year.

    Newbie Question about Primer

    I can verify that the Reaper brush-on primer works great for the Mansions of Madness minis. I’ve been on a quest this year to paint all my base set and first two expansions. For best results: Wash with soap and a toothbrush. If any minis are bent out of shape, put a pot of water on the stove, and heat until it’s just making bubbles. You want it a bit less than actually boiling. Maybe 200 degrees F. While you wait, put cold water in a bowl. Add a few ice cubes if you have them. Dunk the affected mini(s) in the hot water for a few moments. Somewhere around 30 seconds to a couple minutes. You will see the mini straighten out. They get kind of “floppy” at this stage. Carefully, remove from hot water (I use a set of chopsticks) and drop immediately into the cold/ice water to “set” the correct position. Let minis sit in cold water until completely cold and firm. Let minis dry overnight. Optionally, trim any obvious mold lines with a sharp Exacto knife. Do not cut yourself. Brush on a coat of primer. It doesn’t have to be very thick. You will still see some of the plastic color underneath. Use the primer straight from the bottle — do not thin with water. Let dry overnight. Go mad trying to paint the horrors. FYI, here is my attempt at these guys. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/84350-mansions-of-madness-megaproject/&tab=comments#comment-1785071 I didn’t show any photos of it, but I gave all the minis except the ghosts an undercoat of Brown Liner after I primed them. The dark undercoat gives an overall darker/muted look to the final paint job that I wanted for (most of) these minis.

    ‘Yes, I often hit a point in painting where I think “that doesn’t look bad” but then I decide to make it a little better by adding a wash or another color layer or something. Then once I start on the addition, the whole mini suddnly reverts to a mess and I can only stare at it and think “oh gods, what have I done??!!” and “how can I fix it?” But, in the end,it’s almost always a better mini than if I stoped at the “not bad” stage.

    Thanks! For these I am doing a pretty quick job on them, in a darker style than I normally would. Tell me more! This has turned out to be a prophetic statement. One month later and I am only done with the base set.* Sigh. *Star Spawn not included.
