    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I am dissapointed that the male stone giants don't have bigger "stones" than the female giants' "knockers". On a more serious note, I really like most of the sculps shown. Pity I didn't order that expansion.

    But the ghost pirates can't. I order all that I was ready to order. Thought I was a little torn on getting the darkreaches and roc, in the end I decided against them due to disliking painting feathers and allready getting dreadmare expansion.

    Trends with Kickstarter Exclusives

    For a board game where everyone plays with the same set, it really depends on the product, if the exclusive expansion is so good that it increase the overall quality of the game I believe that it still should be possible to releases it to the wider public. The problem then occurs where in some KS the companies promise the exclusives as always being exclusive or just KS exclusives. This means that if they release it to the general public they will become liars and if they don't they are hurting the experience of those that did not get the exclusive. An example of an okay exclusive and a bad exclusive (acording to me) can both be seen in the Rising Sun KS. The exclusive monsters are okay due to the variaty allready in the base game (and expansions) and the small impact they have on the overall play. The better components are also okay, due to them not changing the gameplay. The fox clan is a bad exclusive, it takes away possible strategies and gameplay oportunities from every game board that doesn't have it. Sure it is minor but it offers players one extra choice and a completly different play style than any other clan. This changes if one of the exclusive monsters is so much more fun to play with than the non-exclusive monsters, the exclusive then becomes bad.

    Whenever I contemplate buying a cmon game instores, I remember the Ks exclusives and go nope. This is further exuberated by cmon having a yearly KS of their major franchises (zombicide and arcadia).

    10003 Dragons don't Share

    Nooo!!! Don't give up. Relax and come back tomorrow. I liked how the dragon came out and that is all that matters (to me ), well maybe your opinnion of it has some value . On your next project do something "fun"; use purple as a mother colour, do a cell shaded look or invert the highlights and shadows.

    Magnificent!!! Just a reminder, don't lick the paint!!! I am happy that you found the paint pigments to your liking.

    Elf guy on horse

    I had this guy done for a while, except the weather didn't really allow for a good photo. Now that the weather was somewhat better, I quickly took some. I am happy how the gems came out (thought you can't really see them in the photo). All the black was painted by washing a black and white surface with Indanthrone blue (PB60). The armour was made by using vallejo liquid metal red gold (for highlights) and copper (for shadows)

    Darksword red dragon for Reapercon

    Beatiful dragon! I especially enjoy the bony plates and their contrast with the red. To answer your question about opaque bright red. I know of only a couple opaque red pigments in artist grade paint, the most famous (and most used) ones are Cadmiums (which are poisonous). Historically (currently available from limited paint manufactures at exorbitant prices) Vermilion and Minium were used. Minium is based on lead (poisonous) while vermilion is mercuric sulfide (poisonous). Minium is an orangy red, vermilion is the epitomy of red and cadmium can be most reds from the orange to dark. Napthol Red family can also be semi opaque but it varies based on type (with lightfastness being different between napthol reds). Personaly for an opaque bright red I would recommend Cadmium Red Light (PR 108) from an artist grade paint (not a hue, a hue is a mixture of pigments and in most cases it lacks the opacity of cadmium). If you want to check the opacity of artist grade paints you can always go to the website of the manufacture, they normally have swatches (these swatches show the paint: as a glaze, straight from the tube and tinted with white), and information on which pigments the paint contains. For detailed information on opacity I would recommend checking Golden paints website and looking at the reds in the heavy body range (clicking on the picture and then expanding the techinqual information should give the opacity). Further reading on red pigments can be found on: http://www.artiscreation.com/red.html#.W2QeGC17Gu4
  10. I went into Dymocks and while looking throught the bargain bin I found Dune and The Sword of Shannara trillogy. Couldn't stop myself.

    Warmachine Gorgon Light Myrmidon

    Welp, I found it on sale and couldn't stop myself. I decided to make it a quick paintjob so I just used Cerluen blue and Tiatanium white for the body while using golden interference green for the gems (glazed over a basic black to white gradient). It was glazed in gloss varnish and in reall life the whites looks more white than seen in the photos. Now that it is finished I would have probably done the gems differently, colouring them all black, glazing some interference paint and then adding highlights with white. The base was made using liquitexes ceramic stucato (which is really nice for bases, even thought you can't see it here), which was given a earthy red wash. I then decided that it was too stark and that the figure would work better in a jungle, so I used some miniNature, moss, tuffs and flock to create it.

    Dark Elf Ranger Flat

    I really like this figure, painting it was a learning experience. The desert version you did previously conviced me to get a copy of it, I was not dissapointed. This iterations once again does it justice. Fun ideas about how to paint the flat next time: - Invisible cloak - Light comming from down to up. - Dark forest with tiny mots of light piercing the canopy. (I tried to do this on mine but I did not fully commit, so I just changed it into subtle shades of the cloak)

    Oni of Hate - beginner

    For working with gold a good idea is to underpaint it a brownish red (venetian red/ red iron oxide). This was traditionally used in gilding since it hid any small imperfections. Personally I don't like metalic paints and prefer using nmm or liquid gold by vallejo.

    If you want white which isn't chalky I recomend Zinc white (artist paint). Thought it is very transparent and has terrible tinting strength. Just don't use it with oil paint.

    Too me it looks like the Female Frost Giants are a WIP of the sculpt (look at the detail on wolf, you can see it is unfinished). With the caribou it would limit the usability of the figure (eg using the giants as a normal sized human for bigger scales) yet the caribou does add character, so I am undecided if I prefer it with or without the animal.
