    Mr. Dodgeson (54 mm)

    So, I have just finished with the prep for Mr. Dodgeson from the Infamy Collectables KS. I loved the vibe from him. He's my first 54mm model...so please, make comments! I'd love constructive criticism, as always. He's also my first resin piece, and I haven't primed him yet because I don't know whether or not I should. Just finished the base, so I'm going to let that harden and dry before I get started with the painting.

    More basecoating!

    Trolls, Goblins, and Orcs: Miniatures for painters and games

    I really love the look of all of these miniatures.

    Lining 54mm Minis?

    So, I've never done much lining, but I want to try doing some to see if it helps bring out my minis a bit better. But I'm starting on my first 54mm model. So here's my question: those of you who line your 28mm models, do you also line your 54mm models? What about busts?

    Killer Rabbits: Medieval manuscript art made into miniature

    I've backed down, now that the creator actually answered the question in a better fashion. I meant my "pestering" post to be playful, and I now understand it wasn't interpreted as such. I was not expecting attacks on me personally, which is what this conversation has felt like. I am only posting this because I feel like I need to defend myself. I am in tears here. This is not an exaggeration or me trying to gain pity support. I just want this conversation to end already.

    Killer Rabbits: Medieval manuscript art made into miniature

    I didn't think of that. I suppose I am biased. I see the purpose of backing a kickstarter as a way to provide input on a new business or line. Otherwise, preorders function much the same way. I honestly don't understand the need for discounts for the kickstarter - again, I believe in Kickstarter as a way to get crowd investments. Personally, I wouldn't be offended if any company continued to sell or market a KS product for the same price as the KS after the fact - the point of Kickstarter is to get your product or project off the ground, potentially with input that you wouldn't otherwise receive. I have found a person who is willing to go in with me so I can get that bagpiper, but if it weren't for that, I would probably completely pull from the project at this point. Yes, I could afford the $120 pledge easily. But I don't want to get 30 extra minis I don't need or want. I have no idea what the usage case would even BE for 40 killer rabbits.

    I would even pay more now to get each - as I said in the comments, I'm willing to pay 45 for all 13. And they aren't pewter - they're white metal, which is a bit cheaper.

    Grrr. They're saying that it's so backers get "bragging rights" - making me want to back out completely, even though I love the minis. But for now, I shall persist in pestering them until they give in.

    It's more that I don't want to support the idea of the bonuses only for buying many. Plus, it'll bother me if I only have some of them.

    Backed at $3 to comment and follow. I'll probably up my pledge if they give the option to have one of each, but I doubt it'll happen.

    These are beautiful. Wish you didn't have to get 4 sets of them to get all the different varieties, though.

    Starting to show some skin~ Also, I'm glad I'm not using one of my new brushes for base coating...this brush is having fits. Also. Skintone is HD 29822 Suntan Flesh.

    Mr. Dodgeson (54 mm)

    Started process with priming. Pulled him off the base to make certain areas slightly easier to reach. Using black primer for two reasons: 1. Hard to reach areas will be dark and less noticeable...would probably be in strong shadow anyway. 2. Black tends to be good for base coating a figure I want a darker feel overall to.

    Happy Seppuku - flagstone. My personal favorite. It scales really well, obviously.

    They were washed after my trimming. The kids came attached. Only things not pre attached were the hands with weapons, but I needed to attach them beforehand to avoid losing them

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I used a flat spatula thing I bought for trying to learn to sculpt. It worked pretty dang well.

    Pottermore - What did you get?

    I've never gotten anything but Ravenclaw for my Hogwarts house (took the pottermore quiz something like 5 or 6 times). My patronus is Calico Cat, and my wand is Sycamore with Phoenix feather core, 10", hard flexibility. ...I got pukwudgie for my Ilvermorney house. Mr. Mouse is also Ravenclaw, btw. He wouldn't take any of the other quizzes, though. So...the things for my wand's core and material...I like their descriptions.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Apparently Mr. Mouse thinks it is impressive that I bent some pins in a motherboard's CPU socket back into place...and now the system works well. ...it was a board we were close to declaring DOA. This happened last weekend, but I dont think I said anything here. When the board came in, it had a section of pins that were bent out of shape...but then, I realized some of my mini tools might work to manipulate them...

    ReaperCon '18 swag bag *online version*

    What I'm confused about is that Ron said there were 6, and 6 still showed as in stock when I checked out - I'm worried the total is wrong...since I was F5ing the page...

    I just checked out with one and it still shows 6 in stock? Is that a site issue?

    Please disregard the disaster around my painting desk... All of my unpainted minis are somewhere in there.

    New hobby room set-up advice

    I have a pretty secretary desk from IKEA I use as a painting & storage station - it's super sturdy AND affordable! But apparently they discontinued it? I can't find it on their site anymore. It was the Hemnes Secretary Desk...I'll post a picture of my station later, but here's what the desk looks like (google search images ftw!)

    [SPLIT] Discussion of ReaperCon class labeling and content

    @Wren Thank you for the explanation! It seems like there is unlikely to be a standard way to make sure no one gets in too much over their head. And I kind of understand - in Proctor's TMM class, he called putting down a puddle of thin paint then sweeping it up toward the light glazing. It was very different from the techniques I saw in Corporea's class for glazing. Corporea told me to use a big brush for much the same reason you said, then I was told my brush was picking up too much water and to use a really, really small brush in Proctor's class.
