  1. Cliffbreaker Cyclops - Massive Darkness

    I keep looking at the stuff in Massive Darkness and Rum & Bones Second Tide boxsets and keep procrastinating on painting them. I look, umm and ah, then put the box away. Actually I lie. I have painted up 4x small chests LOL. Anyhoo you have inspired me to start :) Great paintjob btw. Love the skin tones and horns. Looks really fantastic.
  2. Textured paint

    I'd fully agree. Got to your local art supply store. All sorts of texture paints. Otherwise I found mediums from AK Interactive quite good. Not sure about where you are or if somewhere local has the products. Added link to the store I use here in Australia. [link to mightyape.com]
  3. They base size above is 25mm. Fits perfectly into the usual black slotted bases that come with most minis. Best thing is the lid of the tube is basically a cookie cutter. Makes just the right size circle. Last night in prep for rebasing painted Rum & Bones Second Tide minis, made 16 plank bases. Was a little bored. So thought I'd see how quick I could make churn them out. Took all of about 20 mins. Rolled out the fimo, cut the bases using the lid cookie cutter idea, 5 (maybe 7) mins at 175 degrees Celsius. Bases done. One of my kitchen appliances has a cutter that would probably work for the bigger bases. Otherwise already told my Mum who is a chef I am going to raid her cooking tools for cutters of the right size. LOL as an aside she wanted to offload usual cookie cutters on me. So bases in the shape of stars and hearts? YAY! The plank one above is going to be used for a mini I am painting now. Well not now. But atm. So will post a pic to give an idea of scale I guess. Was going to buy Basius stuff eventually. But I think if I can get these rollers I might stick with them for a while.
  4. 77367: Spell Effect: Shadow Tentacles (2) x5

    TENTACLES! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0URLGsf1e0
  5. Has anyone seen the textured rollers made by the company Green Stuff World? Came across them when I was buying some items to make bases. Bought a few of them, but now I have seen how simple and quick it is to make bases am thinking I will buy the others when I am a little more financial. Tonight pumped out 16 bases using the planks for rebasing some of the Rum & Bones stuff I am about to paint. Anyhoo thought I'd share the before and after pics. Did a quick paint up of them to see how they would turn out. Just bases coat, washes and bit of drybrushing. First one is meant to be frozen, but I thought it would work really well as lava.
  6. 77316: Demon Lord of the Undead

    Finally finished the Demon Lord of the Undead or rather I guess Orcus. Started doing this when I received Bones II. So that should give you all an idea how long it has been sitting there on the painting desk in my study. Was going to do the whole thing in greens/blues. But decided about 1/4 of the way into painting I would do it in a more traditional ruby/crimson skinned look. Which then became a dark toned ruby/crimson scheme. Such a great feeling to finish something that seems to have taken a eternity. Talk about torment!
  7. 03675: Gravewailer

    Thanks all :) Was going to do the tongues the usual reddish tones. But for the overall perspective didn't want the tongues to be the overall focus. More the purple/blue effect on the skin.
  8. 03675: Gravewailer

    Finally finished the Gravewailers. Bought two ages ago and then the Bones 3 Mythos ex-pack had one. So I waited until I got the third one before painting. Seems I started on them ages ago. But things kept getting in the way to finish. Including my cat who decided they were delicious to nibble and suck on. Rather then doing in pink and reds. Decided I wanted to go for something a little more alien and starspawn like. So tried to make them purple with the look of bluish light showing from within. Trying to get that alien Lovecraftian feel of something beyond explanation. LOL think I need some sleep. Hopefully not about anything Lovecraftian :)
  9. Knocked these out last night. Was a nice quick speed paint so I could get to doing the cultists. Needed something for them to stand around on the shelf. Used Dwarven Gold on the writing and the pics don't show that lovely peachy gold lustre from the paint.
  10. Jigsaw Paint Shaker

    As requested - put the wheel guide back on the bottom after I took the pic so the clamp wouldn't shake so much.
  11. Have to have a laugh in both humor and happiness after finally pulling my finger out and making a paint shaker out of a old jigsaw and a clamp. Did it mainly to give my Reaper Paints a good shake. But at work had a realization that I can use it to shake all the old pro paints I have squirrelled away in the hope I could do something to get the old paints back again. The jigsaw shaker has resurrected paints I thought had long died. Am SO freaking happy. Some paints had settled so much they were just pigment and liquid. Heh all fixed up now. WOOT! Only downside is that it is a bit loud. Am sure my neighbors must think I am doing a hell of alot DIY atm LOL Anyhoo that is all. Had to share.
  12. Bug Spray

    Bug Spray from Bombshell Babes minis. Think maybe need to do some more wet gooey look on the base. Not 100% happy with it atm. Is missing that...something.
  13. Reaper Bones 3: US Zone Complete

    Bones 3 order finally turned up late last week. Couldn't open and check everything until today three days later due to work and family commitments. For all the stress and angst. Most definitely worth the wait. Still dubious and dirty about the shipping and kerfuffle with Aetherworks and their seemingly impossible ability to respond appropriately to emails (really seems like they took too much on). Hoping that Reaper will soon address the shipping issue and give a refund or SOMETHING as a way of saying a massive big sorry for the dubious change in shipping. Especially before Bones 4 launches as it is something that will most definitely effect how I support it. Reaper needs to fix some of the bad blood that has arisen. Already made the decision I am not going to fork the money over for a detour to Reapercon when I go to US in Oct. Anyhoo, went through everything and only missing a few things. One thing I can live without (the Donkey from Core), the others are needed (Mrs Bones miscast with no sword or sword arm, No Cobra from Core and worst Goremaw has no side pincers!). So now need to send email and hope for some replacement parts/minis. Goremaw is the first thing big thing I was going to paint. Talk about Murphy's Law! LOL
  14. Reaper Bones 3: US Zone Complete

    I have resent an email to help@reapermini.com. I now eagerly await a response. Hopefully Aetherworks will also soon send an email with shipping details. I think Reaper might need to rethink them as a shipper. They seem to be really bad at communications AND really overworked. Received a response to a email asking on if something on progress of shipping could be sent. There reply was basically they are really busy shipping Bones 3 stuff and other orders and don't have the manpower to respond. Kind of not good. Have been in limbo with it now for a week. Was Wave 2 in the KS and heard nothing, yet my mate was Wave 7 and got his stuff last Friday. Kind of a let down with the whole wave thing.
  15. Reaper Bones 3: US Zone Complete

    Still eagerly awaiting any form of email from Aetherworks. Every time I look at my phone or email for that message to say order is on the way and there is nothing. My interest in Bones IV and supporting Reaper in general just keeps growing smaller and smaller. Insult to injury is that I realized that with Bones II one of the dragons I pledged for had two left wings, I messaged Reaper back then about it, expecting eventually a replacement. At that point I just put the mini to the side and forgot about it amongst the many unpainted minis. Needed to paint it up last weekend. Went to do it and then realized the problem hadn't been resolved. So failure for Reaper for Bones II. I searched emails hoping to find something I might have read half asleep and put in a folder. But I never even got a response. Hopefully this time Reaper will be more responsive with Bones III stuff ups. Also hopefully they might answer the shady dealings with shipping in some way. A refund before Bones IV hits would be really good. At least it would mean some goodwill would have been extended to the many disgruntled backers.
