  1. Experience with SFG product

    Okay, guess I'll just use the Raphaels then. But what about their special white? I'm assuming it's just knock off Warcolour White.
  2. Experience with SFG product

    Because in 8 years I never learned the basic techniques that most learn in 1. So I'd like to practice with something close and save the Raphael for an actual competition or display piece. Apart from that I really don't have an excuse not to use them.
  3. Experience with SFG product

    So I attended Reapercon a few weeks ago and two things happened: 1. I learned that actually blending my paint layers is a thing 2. I bought a trio of Raphael brushes This leads to a bit of a problem, I really need practice blending with a natural hair brush but I don't want to ruin my nice Raphael brushes in the process. Fortunately I found the SFG Bombwick brushes that look like they might fit the bill but I can't find any reviews to see if they'll be worth my time. So what are your experiences with these brushes, if you use them? Also, what about their "special white paint?"
  4. NMM with Reaper Paints

    Thanks for the advice folks, now I just gotta learn how to do that thing, what's it called again? Oh yeah, blending.
  5. NMM with Reaper Paints

    I picked up the NMM Gold triad at Reapercon and I was wondering what everybody's experience with these paints have been. Also, are there other Reaper paint triads that work better? What about for steel/silver?
  6. Reapercon 2017 home safe thread

    Made it home last night at about 2130 and pretty much passed out after I unloaded the truck. It was a great first year and I can't wait till next year!

    I know how you feel, I've been pulling 12 hour days for the last few weeks plus weekends. Unfortunately I'll be working this weekend as well which will keep me from getting my 4th entry done.

    Why does the skeletal fish sound good in my head?
  9. Grymkin: The Wicked Harvest

    I'd say strip and retry since it's just the primer but you might wanna ask the community at large in the Tips and Advice thread. This is actually the reason why I quit using white as a primer.

    Can't wait to see where you go with this, but it looks like the primer might have pooled in that last pic.

    Okay, looks like I might be kitting out for one day. Just gotta go get some more pokeballs. Fun fact: MOLLE weave provides a secure, snug fit for those pokeball toys with a clip in the back.

    Still wondering if I should wear my Safari Zone Anti-poaching Unit costume. It's just the thought of packing and wearing the body armor that makes me kinda iffy on the subject, that crap's heavy and doesn't breathe.
  13. 03575: Barrow Wight Guardian

    Here's a few picks of a Barrow Wight Guardian that I started last week and only just got around to getting pics of. What's really funny is that this figure has been primed, on a base and in storage for nearly ten years. Future plans include: 1. Fresh damage to armor. 2. Free hand image on shield. 3. Weathering and rust on sword and armor. 4. Green glow from eyes, mouth, and neck of armor. Feel free to share ideas for shield image, I have no ideas right now.

    Update, Ninja Justin was on the KS comments page and while not as great as one would hope, it still goes a good ways towards building back some of the trust that was lost in the company. While I wouldn't say things were perfect now I'd still say give it a bit of time and see how things go from here and take my complaints with a grain of salt. At least for right now I won't be asking for that refund.
  15. Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures

    Late doesn't cover SDE:L. Yeah it's in the crapper right now. I'm actually looking at getting a refund on SDE:L. Right now I'm waiting on the staffer who is supposed to come on some time today to answer our questions about it before I fully decide. Suffice to say that they had better do something better than blow smoke up my broccoli or I'm out, regardless of how much I want the game.
