    Athena: FeR bust

    I do really love your step by step (for the most part ) walk through. I have some busts coming in from the Scale75 KS and I really appreciate you taking the time to teach us some tricks and tips. Skin is so complex and I am nervous to paint them especially the female's skin. I am worried that if I use too may layers and push paint around too much that the skin wont be smooth. It has worked okay for my Orc Bust but his skin does not need to be smooth like a female's. I also need to get more comfortable with the in between stages. Often times if I am not getting results right away I get discouraged so it helps to see that its just part of the process. I am getting better with this but to see that it can take a long while for results helps a lot. I always try remember what James Wappel said in a TY video to not give up on the process half way through because you wont know the final results if you give up too early. You're work here is a great example!

    Metallics for classic steel

    I use Vallejo Metal Color and they have several different tones that I think are great. It's very smooth and covers really well. I am not good at painting metallics at all so take that with a grain of salt If you go with the alcohol based metallics just know they can be difficult to use and since they are alcohol based you can not thin them with water and dry VERY fast. That being said the Old Gold is probably the closest you'll get to a color match for a real gold.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    Sounds like resin is scheduled to deliver on time so there is some good news. Unfortunately I am in for a good chunk and I am only interested in the models so hopefully the characters come out unscathed (I thought the troops were the least of all the concepts anyways). The Veronique figure looks really good though so I am holding out hope!
  5. This sounds more like Two Brush Blending. Feathering is using the same brush and color but using tiny little strokes on the hard edge to soften it. Not that this contributes much to this conversation but thought I would point it out. I think @buglips*the*goblin (I think it was him) has a thread started where he went over a bunch of definitions and things that apply to the hobby that can be really helpful to new and experienced painters alike

    Oh I have faith in Reaper I just worry about the shippers holding up their end.

    I just hope we get an update on when the container has officially left China so that we know if it left before Chinese New Year because that could push us back into a May delivery. Chinese New Year is early so it will be close! Hopefully when they say it's supposed to ship the first of February that they mean February 1st! (By they I mean whoever is doing the shipping)

    I am in Wave 1 and I locked in early and I know once they get going (after working out the kinks) they go fast so I am hoping only a day or two of missed work... Well not missed I'll be here I just won't be productive.

    Dang! A little sad that these might not get here till closer to April but I know it was out of Reaper's hands and they were trying super hard to hit that delivery date. They got pretty close and from what I understand this will probably be the closest they have gotten to on time delivery. I also get the feeling that they are probably more disappointed than a lot of backers. It is not their fault that I am so impatient! I am glad that we have more of a solid idea now of when shipping will commence. Thanks Reaper for keeping us up to date! We almost made it without any delays and I don't think a month delay for a KS is a big deal at all! Edit: I just hope the backers in the KS comments handle the news ok!

    Yeah they has me super excited showing all the things! They also said they are still unloading containers and that they are running out of room to store all the stuff. Which I took as a good sign that they are getting close to having everything. I also thought if they are that close to running out of room they could just start shipping and clear out some room

    I want to know when!!!
  16. James Wappel uses Reaper Liners on EVERYTHING! He mixes almost all of his colors from 3--4 liners. He's quite impressive to watch. Reaper paints are also pretty popular with airbrushers since they are thin paints (if you count airbrush model painters).

    I'm thinking about creating a large dio of Nyarly and Treeman in a jungle vs. coniferous forest show down.

    Since this is my first Bones KS I have no clue what the size of the box will be. Ugh! I don't know if I can wait any longer! I am still contemplating the paint scheme I want. Since this will be such a center piece of my collection I want to make sure I get it right. First I have to decide if they are fighting or courting.

    I'm most looking forward to painting Nyarlathotep so I might start with that one. However I am currently painting Khanjira so I might have to paint a couple smaller figures to take a break from the large models.

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    The only thing that I worry about is that their email says gravity feed brushes will be packed in a faux leather pouch. That doesn't sound very secure to me but maybe I am just picturing it wrongly.

    Ouroboros Miniatures: Dragon Masters busts

    **immediately covers eyes** Nope! Nope! Not gonna look! You're not going to suck me in! **Peeks through fingers** Maybe I can take a little peek... I guess one more bust won't hurt.

    That is about what I was expecting.
