  1. I use white or blue tac for masking. Vallejo also makes a masking fluid that you can paint on and let it dry and it peels up once you're done. I think @knarthex wrote up a thread giving it a review and showing how he used it awhile back.
  2. @Unruly what primer do you use now?
  3. Yay!! This is gives me something to look forward to while I wait for Bones IV We'll see how well this gets through customs with the current shutdown.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Does anyone ever create a checklist for the minis in the core set so that when we go through them we can make sure we have everything?

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm really trying not to get my hopes up too much just in case of last minute delays but its hard not to get a little excited. Glad I'm in Wave 1 and confirmed my order early so hoping I'm towards the front of the line. I'm really trying to be patient but as it gets closer it gets harder!

    Black Friday Deals

    Hey I just thought I would start a topic where some people might post some Black Friday Deals they know about or stumble across later. I missed out on a couple last year and thought something like this might help others and myself as well. Preferably it is an online sale and preferably miniature related, although any deals listed I'm sure would be appreciated.
  7. I watched Occupation on Netflix. Now I am a big fan of alien invasion movies but this movie is absolutely awful! One of the worst movies I have ever seen! Its not even a fun bad movie, it is an extremely bad frustrating movie. The acting is horrid. The story and editing make no sense at all. Character development is nonexistent except for off screen and is only done through references from the characters to scenarios that aren't shown in the movie. I can look past the sub par special effects but this movie is bad. All of that isn't even the worst part of the movie. I love a good musical score and I think it can really make a movie (its one reason I am such a big fan of Tarantino movies because the music selection is always perfect). The musical score in this movie is terrible. There is music playing the ENTIRE movie! I mean nearly every second has music playing. No suspense is built through the use of silence. Music plays over dialogue (probably because the writing is horrendous) and doesn't even convey what is happening in the movie. Bad bad bad bad movie!

    I didnt get much but my favorite was a case of Melinda's XXXXtra Hot Pepper Sauce. Yes, I said a case. I eat a LOT of hot sauce and in my opinion it is by far the best hot sauce. Not just heat but tons of flavor.

    Fantasy Dragons miniatures-Norbaminiatures

  11. Any updates about where this is?
  12. Present from my sister-in-law Present my sister-in-law got for my wife I'm going to try to figure out how to get this in my collection without her knowing.

    Kingdom Death Kingsman

    The reds really came out great!
  14. Yes I have been wanting to get some of those busts. They seem like good practice and they would be good presents for my daughters once I am done. One of these days I will order a set of them.
  15. Yeah I live in northern Colorado right at the beginning of the Great Plains. The city I live in backs right up to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains on the west and flat plains to the east. I could probably just go a couple miles east and find all the sagebrush and tumbleweeds I could handle. Just been too lazy. Last fall we had tons of tumbleweeds in our yard (I live on the far east side of town) but it was before I got into basing.

    Blood Rage Digital

    https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cmon/blood-rage-digital?ref=75cj7i About The legendary viking board game designed by Eric M. Lang and with art by Adrian Smith is being turned into a full-fledged digital game by Exozet! For $15 the base Digital Viking pledge gets you a copy of the Blood Rage Digital game. This is a special price for backers, as the game will eventually retail for almost twice as much. The Digital game is expected to launch in December 2019, though backers will be able to get access to a Closed Beta much earlier than that. Find out more about the digital game further down the page. If your focus is the analog Blood Rage board game, however, you may be interested in the special $60 Physical Viking Pledge, which gets you not only a free copy of the Blood Rage Digital game, just as explained above, but also a slew of Kickstarter Exclusive promos to use with the Blood Rage board game! This includes new versions of the 4 Monsters only available in the original Kickstarter campaign, the brand-new Stag Clan (including their Mystics and Sculpted Clan Tokens), and also 24 Cards to add a 5th Player into the board game! While the Blood Rage Digital game is set to launch in December 2019, the physical promo items are expected to be delivered to backers beforehand, around August 2019.

    Black Friday Deals

    I had actually kind of forgotten about it over the past couple of days. So I went and checked my order and... still processing.
  20. Used to be just a generic star with lights but I have had if for like 25 years but then my daughter got a cat a couple of years ago and the cat decided she wanted to be the new tree topper and all the ornaments were her toys... We now use one of the spiral out door trees.
  21. I just can't bring myself to buy these. Pill bottles and some white tack work just fine for me. A used craft store in town sells old pill bottles for $.01 so I bought like 15 awhile ago so I can have figures queued up ready to paint. I also have some extra sand I bought for basing that I poured into a few of them to give them some weight. I don't really find myself resting the mini on my hand, aside from the occasional pinkie finger just to steady the brush.
  22. I got the Grudge when I made my BF paint purchase. I haven't got to paint it yet but it is a nice sculpt and a good size for the price... Sorry that probably doesn't help. @SGHawkins09 painted him up great so she might be able to tell you.
  23. Well after using them a bit last night I can tell you that they are VERY smooth to brush on! I really enjoyed the feel of them. They also mix very well and seem like they will blend nicely as well, although I will need a little more practice with them to get the blends a little smoother. I have some of the Liquid Gold and the color and feel of them are amazing! But like you said the alcohol base is a little tricky to work with and dries extremely fast on the palette so you have to go a little at a time and make sure your bottles are sealed tight!
  24. Got in my new Vallejo Metal Colors today! Vince Venturella gave a great review of them and even though I love MSP paints I'm not a big fan of their metallics so I thought I would give these a go.
