    Amazing color scheme!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

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

    Scalecolor Artist Scale75

    Looks like Scale75 is about to drop a new paint line on Kickstarter. Not too much to know right now all they have is a teaser video on their FB saying a new "smooth acrylic" is coming soon to KS. I'm not going to post the link because I'm not sure about linking to FB. I will keep an eye on this and post more once they do. I really don't need more paint but if this is decently priced then I may not be able to pass it up.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    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.

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    From the tour of the factory video I saw it looks like they have lots of parts in inventory. So I imagine they just need to be assembled, packaged, and shipped but still will probably take awhile for me to get mine. Edit: I watched more of the video and now I see what you mean. I'm not sure what I initially thought you were saying. Oh well, maybe I'll get mine in a couple of months.

    Well I ordered it and I guess I will just wait now. I'll see what I get first Bones IV or the Sotar.

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    How long did you need to wait to have yours shipped to you. From the way they sounded it might be awhile before they deliver.

    I went through the same thought process but for some reason I just felt a Monday would be too cliche.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Why has the nearly 1.5 years waiting for this seem so easy but this last month or two are so hard?! Do we want to start getting guesses for the official start date of shipping? My guess Feb 20th
  16. Oh I still have way more than I need!
  17. On Amazon there are several decently priced sets of synthetic brushes that have really good customer ratings. I have considered buying them several times but I already have enough brushes. I collect minis and paint so I don't need to add brushes to that too
  18. Seems like a lot of people in the comments are really excited but there are lots of beginner painters. I kind of want to go on there and tell them the same things but at the same time I don't want to rain on the creator's parade because I don't think that he is trying to deceive anyone.
  19. Not very appealing to me. I think the nice thing about synthetic is that you can buy like 6 or 7 of them for $5 and then just throw them away when the tips curl. At this price plus shipping you can get yourself a couple nice W&N or a couple/few Rosemary and Co. brushes that will last much longer. Also the KS doesn't indicate that there is anything special about these brushes other than the white bristles (which is not unique anyways). I thought maybe they were going for a synthetic brush that was resistant to tip curl but all that the KS says is just to adjust the way you paint. These seem over priced and probably not much different than any other synthetic brush. I have found that for the majority of my painting I mainly use 3 different brushes. For the price of this set you could get some nice natural hair brushes that will last a long while and serve most your needs or several packs of synthetic brushes that will probably last you longer than this set. You have to ask yourself why they are offering a second set for free. Probably because they know they won't last.
  20. The box has decided it is time to move on and is now headed to @Generic Fighter

    The Orc, My 1st Bust

    So I thought that since this is my first bust that I should do a WIP for it so that I can get your guys' help. This will be a project I jump back and forth to so this will probably be a log WIP with me posting updates every once in a while. Here he is ready to be primed. He is now primed in black but I plan to do a zenithal priming with some red under shading to help shade the green that his skin color will eventually be. I will post again once he is all primed up. He also has a bunch of weapons that I did not get pictures of but will post those in my next updates. Any tips or comments are always appreciated.
  22. Yes! Thank you very much I am really excited to give them a try.

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    Yeah I have sold some stuff on eBay recently so I have a little extra money. I use my funds I get off eBay for miniature stuff and I have so many KS coming in this year that I don't think I will need to buy anymore minis so this might be a good place to invest the extra funds.

    The Orc, My 1st Bust

    Got some more work done on his neck and added eyes. The eyes were completely nerve wracking but I am ok with them for now. I think I may need to push the contrast a little bit more but I am afraid of pushing it too far on a larger piece like this. C&C greatly appreciated but not required.

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    I just bought a Patriot 105 yesterday from Amazon for $67 + tax. Fortunately I had a $50 gift card so it only ended up being about $20. But while buying it I ran across the Badger sale. I am now really tempted to get a Sotar 20/20. I already have a H&S Ultra which is a .2mm needle and it is a great airbrush but a Sotar for $65 is hard to beat! The Ultra doesn't have the trigger adjust like the Sotar which is also something that is very tempting to me. I airbrush a bit but not a ton which is what is holding me back. I'm not sure I need 3 brushes. I got the Patriot because I wanted to move to Stynylrez (it recommends a .5mm needle) and I didn't want to do so much priming with my H&S and I had a $50 Amazon gift card. Another nice thing is I bought the H&S last year and I had another $50 gift card so that one only cost me $40. So to have 3 really nice brushes that normally cost around $253 would end up costing me about half of that.
