  1. That's awesome! Gareth Hawkblade would look fabulous right in front of that maw! :D (mostly because he looks terrified of everything!)
  2. So I picked up a few 3" bases (from a company @haldir knows) and added a first layer of green stuff.. I think I want to build it up a bit more before I call it good (and maybe think about that stream - although attempting to paint water kind of scares me :D )
  3. Attached a small blob of greenstuff and some washers for stability last night. I'll add more greenstuff tonight and try my hand at forming it to look like a rock tonight.
  4. So, I got ambitious again and decided to try my hand at a second dragon (and a third since I scored DDS for a steal online the other week). I've got Blightfang all painted with a basecoat and the first set of color, then forgot where I was with her and started gluing things together.. After affixing her to her rock, I found a small issue that my pre-paint fitting didn't show; namely, that the front rock sits 1/4" off the ground when the main rock is flat.. Now, I've not done any custom basing to this point, so I'm completely clueless as to the best way to 'fix' this issue. Should I find a pebble in the garden and glue that sucker under the front rock? Weight the back so that the front just sits in the air? Carefully attempt to slice off the rock and do a complete custom jobbie? Note - this (as with all my other current projects) is destined primarily for table-top use - we start HotDQ in a week or two.
  5. That's the only safe way to do it, right?
  6. Not very good at free-handing, but here's a start on her.
  7. The new wonder woman doesn't have a logo on her shield, so swapping in a hoplite shield should do the trick (I hesitate to say 'simply' as I've never modded a mini :D )
  8. I like that one too -- For now, I think I'm going to go with the one that is in the mail ( 02687: Female Barbarian ) and keep an eye on that Mythic Helen as a replacement for her when she gets a few levels under her belt.
  9. That's awesome! Too bad it's a 35mm mini and everything war is 27mm
  10. That's one that I already have on order, so I might just use her. The Angel of Radiance is a solid option and on my wish-list (one must at least pretend to listen to the budget) I hadn't considered Dark Sword - so far all of my minis have been Reaper. I really like that one.
  11. We're about to start a new 5e campaign and 2 of my sons have decided that they want to be Deadpool (using crossbows in lieu of guns) and Spiderman (his brother, the DM has ok'd some homebrew thing that gives him Spider Climb and a couple of other spidey-type features). I'm looking at a paladin / warlock or a paladin / sorcerer and thought it would be fun to paint her up as Wonder Woman, given the other party members. That said, I'm having a hard time finding a reaper mini that shouts "I'm Wonder woman!" and thought I'd ask you gurus for a bit of advice.. The closest I've found thus far are: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/female barb/sku-down/02687 http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/isabella/sku-down/02462 http://www.reapermini.com/FigureFinder#detail/02267 http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/blade/latest/02267 But none of them seem quite right .. the image I've got in my head is from the new movie coming out this summer - tiara, round shield, sword and breastplate.. Thanks in advance..
  12. Sally IV -- this one's the lucky one!
  13. Haha -- I'm too cheap so far to have special edition paints! He's been doing fine so far with the regular Reaper paints - only puts a tiny drop in the cap ( I use water bottle caps to hold the active paint - they're cheap, easily replacable and I have about a million of them laying around) and is pretty frugal with what he puts on the brush. I think I'm just going to get him a few of the multi-pack Bones guys for Easter and let him go to town with those - and maybe a brush or two of his own.
  14. I tried a couple more - one with my phone's flash and a few without - part of the issue could always be that I'm using a phone camera :D
  15. Thanks! Trying the Ruby Red and Adamantium Black together really came out well, I thought I figured it out after a frantic look at both the box that I had finally put in the trash and at the store link :) (although the tip regarding purple text might help me out next time!
