  1. 12 Days of Reaper Begins December 6th!

    Getting ready for my Reaper order when the clock strikes midnight tonight. I like Father Christmas and think he could work well as a non-Christmas druid or something along those lines. I'm probably going to spring for an $80 order, because I want the $65 stocking and since an extra $15 will get me two extra metal minis (albeit duplicates), I feel like that's too good of a deal to resist. Now I just have to hope that Reaper resets everyone's carts soon, so I can order the paint set. It's back to zero in stock...
  2. 12 Days of Reaper Begins December 6th!

    Yeah, I was planning on trying to get Tinker the Gnome, since he's generally useful outside of the holidays. Now I'm trying to figure out whether Father Christmas or the Winter Elf would make a better druid if it wasn't painted to look Christmas-ey.
  3. Have you been Naughty or Nice?

    Yeah, if it includes some paints like the Ghoulie Bag did, I'm definitely going to try to get it.
  4. December specials?

    Just got my Kaladrax and dry fitted it. Roughly half the pieces are white Bones and half are gray. I don't have an original to compare mine to but it didn't seem inordinately bendy. In fact, due to his posture, I'm thinking I might not even need to pin him...unlike some of the other Bones dragons. (I'm looking at you, Stormwing!)
  5. It would be great if Tre Manor could sculpt an orc shaman or druid to go with the existing Bones models, but, alternatively, I'd be happy to get one of these metal orc casters converted: 4132: Yagun Oog, Reven Mage 14196: Greka, Reven Solo 02980: Quosk Ravensire, Half-Orc Druid 03043: Surkar, Orc Shaman 02328: Lorath, Orc Shaman
  6. December specials?

    I've already order my pre-production Kaladrax, but I just noticed what OneBoot said and wanted to clarify. I wasn't expecting the pre-production Kaladraxes to have more mold lines than a standard Kaladrax. Were the mold lines just more pronounced than what's typical on a regular Bones model or were there actually multiple mold lines on some of the parts?
  7. Adventurescapes

    Talae, yes, they've hinted that they might be fulfilling early. They started making some of the minis before campaign even ended and I think the painter is already painting some things. Adventurescapes 2 is already in the works and should be launched in a few months. At one point, I think they mentioned a December/January time frame, but I'd expect they'll probably wait until Adventurescapes 1 is fulfilled before launching.
  8. Please give us a Bones version of Jolistina Susperio (60159). Everything about her is awesome, but for a medium humanoid she's even expensive by metal standards.
  9. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    That's interesting that dark blue or green paint is darker than Reaper's Pure Black, despite the fact that black is the darkest color. I too have noticed that the Pure Black paint isn't as black I would expect from something called "Pure Black." I've been wondering about why Reaper can make blues and greens that are darker than their black. Does anyone know? I've heard that black paints are extremely glossy, so I was wondering if the presence of extra matte additive is what makes it less dark? I have noticed that semi-gloss blacks tend to look significantly darker than matte blacks. In trying to find an answer, I did find this image, which just seems to support what people are saying that, for whatever reason, black paint isn't very black.
  10. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Yeah, I don't mix in Pure Black to make shadows either. I have a lot of paint colors, so usually I just make my own triads with the colors I have. I still go through a lot of Pure Black though, for metallic undercoats, painting the sides of my bases black (they start that way, but always end up with some paint on them before I'm done), and occasionally, black cultist robes or similar things.
  11. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Okay, I'm sold. My darkest blue paints are currently Deep Blue and Ritterlich Blue, so it will be useful to have something darker. I still want to know how Bathory uses it, that it was the first color she ever finished. Besides Pure Black and Pure White, I've finished a few bottles of gray and brown paints, but I don't think I'm even close to finishing off any other colors.
  12. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Just wondering why the people who said they use it all the time use it all the time. A friend brought over a bottle of it for awhile, but I never used it because it didn't seem black enough to be black to me (unlike Pure Black or Noir Black) and I didn't happen to be painting dark blue during that time. I was especially curious how Bathory went through two bottles of Nightmare Black before even finishing off a bottle of Pure Black or Pure White. I was thinking maybe she uses it instead of Pure Black, in which case, maybe my initial assessment that it's not black enough to be used as black was wrong. But now I'm rambling. :)
  13. [SPLIT] Discussion of dark paints

    Nightmare Black is a very dark blue, correct? Do you typically use it in place of black or for shading blues?
  14. Adventurescapes

    It's a separate piece, but it looks like the firewood underneath it is part of the cauldron (though I don't know whether they come attached).
  15. Adventurescapes

    So, should I paint the docks to compliment Dreadmere or the barge in Bones 4? What's that, miniature shoulder angel that makes me buy all the minis? You think I should get two sets of docks and paint one for each? Well, that seems like a good idea, but the last time I listened to you I spent all my money on Bones 4...
