  1. I've heard multiple opinions, and am interested in what many think. Every game I have been in runs mainly on house rules anyway.
  2. Very good idea! Awesome.
  3. Hi! Been a while since I have posted, but I ran into an issue with Bones. I have always gloss varnish and after it has cures I then use a matte varish to seal my models. When I did this with bones, my model is sticky, and the paint can chip due to this. Any tips, I just made some tweaks to this guy and want him to last.
  4. Just recently finished FA Hayek's beast of a book. I have to say it makes me feel smarter for having read it. It is a political philosophy book and is in favor of capitalism. I think he raises various good points about the dangers of a planned society and the roles that will be assigned to people and how. I can't stress how good of a read it is if you can handle this dry/philosophical/economic stuff. I give it a 5/5. I am almost done with Macbeth, and just started Bukowski's "Notes." Anyone read Road to Serfdom? What did you think?
  5. OKAY! So to seal my bones I have used my new Reaper's matte sealer without any trouble. In fact, I didn't even notice it dulling the colors down like the spray krylon does. Also there is no sticky effect. So when sealing your plastic, metal, and resin minis, in my preference and from what I have gathered works, when using a spray use a gloss coat first, let it cure, and then do a matte coat. For the bones, SIMPLY USE REAPER'S brush on. This mystery is solved for me. I hope this thread helps some other folks.
  6. Dude this is sweet, I am doing mine too! This model is fun to paint.
  7. I appreciate it. I am a big Witcher fan so this has been fun to paint.
  8. Reflecting on my past while doing this makes me proud of the steps I've taken in my life. I discovered DM when I was about 17-18, the same time I weighed 255 pounds, there were issues with my mother and father, my grandmother had her strokes, I was at a dead end job, I couldn't drive, hadn't started college, was in an angry place and frustrated with nearly everyone around me, and was all around not happy with a lot of things about myself. It made me grow up quicker. Depeche Mode's music meant a lot to me then, especially the albums ULTRA, Songs of Faith and Devotion, Violator, and Music For the Masses. Most of the music I like is music that I can identify with in some way and/or find my own meanings in, DM was able to hit all the right feels. The music hasn't gotten old and it still soothes and motivates. I finally saw them live with the person I love most in Chicago of 2013. Am totally grateful for their musical talent and wisdom. This is my second go at the canvas, and I hope you think the painting is fun. It looks sweet on my wall. '46 Minutes.' All albums referenced: Violator, Delta Machine, A Broken Frame, Black Celebration, Music For The Masses, Playing The Angel, Ultra, Sounds of The Universe, Exciter, and Songs of Faith and Devotion.
  9. Really happy with how this guy turned out and hope you dig it. I originally planned more flamboyant colors and pale flesh, but it was better to go with a more simple look.
  10. Came back to this guy to scrounge up pics. He is actually one of the first of my paint jobs to have sold. I love all of the different variations of him. Still got love for the 'druid.'
  11. Funded

    Where is that undead dragon thing covering the coffin that was advertised for bones 4???!!!!
  12. I have never used a brush on seal. You just blob it on?
  13. I will look into reapers brush on and testers. I have never used varnish as a primer. I do use krylon spray varnishes. The reason for sealing with gloss first is to protect the colors from being too matte when the matte is applied.
  14. Took me forever to get to this guy, mainly because I felt Boromir was lame lol. I just finished it. I think he came out killer though. I'll likey touch up the left side of his face.
  15. Hi! I was wondering who else had the game and am hoping to make this the hub for our house rules and questions. For starters who else has it, and does anyone get the movement for bosses?
  16. I really appreciate the compliments. The LOTR range is great, WHAT SUCKS is their scale. Unfortunately depending on what you buy, plastic, finecast, or metal are all kinda off in scale. The lotr range wasn't taken care of properly, and I would say their metal heroes and plastic boxes are the only things worth buying. Stay away from the finecast. I touched up Boromirs face and posted pics for scale. The perry mini to the left is 28mm, the souls mini to the right is 32-35. Also if you dig my stuff, throw me a like! https://m.facebook.com/KendalsBullbroccoli/?ref=bookmarks
  17. I feel the same way Moon! Tjrez, it is indeed meant to look like bone tipped with metals.
  18. Fantastic
  19. KILLER
  20. Outstanding my dude.
  21. Got my souls kickstarter, and rather than paint Ornstein like everyone else was doing, I did the DS2 look.
  22. HOLY ****
