    My spare time mainly consists of gaming and music. I play drums and am constantly looking to discover new music. Generally, I gravitate towards metal/prog genre based songs, but I like vastly different songs as well. As for gaming, I mostly play WoW and Pathfinder. As a DM for my Pathfinder game, I've taken it upon myself to buy my players their first real miniatures and paint them up myself. I'm no crystal brush winner, but I can damn well try. I'm a good try-er.

  1. I haven't had a Windsor Newton but I do have a few Rosemary & Co brushes, I see others praising them and I hope that I was either just too hard on them or I got a bad batch. Mine didn't seem to hold much of a tip out of the package and ones I haven't even used have stray hairs already. I figured it was just because they were my first set and I didn't know how to handle them and clean them properly, but I do the exact same thing with the Reaper Pro 10-0 and #1 brushes and they're still in really good condition despite using them FAR more than the Rosemary & Co ones I have (well, the reaper No. 1 at least). The orange cleaner from Rosemary & Co is absolutely amazing though. The only thing I can say to try is, like I plan on doing myself, is just buying a bunch of different brushes over time and actually using them for myself. So far out of the 4 I've tried, the Reaper ones seem to work for me the best. Good luck!
  2. Hello everyone, I just received a mini in the mail today and was wondering what the best way to go about assembling the cape for it was. The miniature in question is a resin mini called Dieter Kaufmann who I will be painting up like Malcom Reynolds for Starfinder. I'm going to be painting the back of the legs before I put it on so I can actually reach it, but I was wondering if simple CA glue would be sufficient to keeping the cape on. I've attached a picture of the separated pieces.
  3. Haha, gorillas could be a word to describe my players some times when it comes to miniature handling (and on the occasion myself). Especially after the time that the wizard decided to flick his Kael figure (bones) onto the map to place his figure. Originally, I was going to paint the miniatures up the way I wanted them and they would be the start of my collection as a DM. Over time, my thoughts about it changed and I've decided that after my campaign is over, the miniatures will be given to the respective players as they don't have their own. Something for them to remember the campaign by. I assume one day, eventually, they'll become mantelpieces more or less. When I get around to buying a new Tobias, I'll see what I can do to keep his hand on. In the meantime, still open to even more suggestions. I'd love to get multiple and do some tests and find out which is the strongest for similar miniatures.
  4. I have the pin about 3mm into his arm (more so into his head, I destroyed part of the arm due to inaccurate drilling) and just under 2 mm into his hand. I tried to go as far as I thought I could without poking through the other side. The arm falling off has been from a few things. At first it was from falling on it's side at the table, it only had the base that came with it and would fall over from weight distribution. Once from the player moving the mini by the hand of the miniature. Then, one of my players decided to help me clean up at the end of the night and put him in a different slot of the cardboard box that I use to transport my minis, the next week when i opened the box his arm swung around pretty intensely. Finally, the last few times have been falls, apart from another on the table tip over. From my chair to my carpeted floor, it's only survived the fall twice out of a total of about 6 times. I tried putting a bit of green stuff, but I may have been putting in too much, I can experiment again with either the new one or if this one breaks again. I will definitely try a smaller hole on the new one, I would have figured that using the largest pin possible would have provided a stronger hold. As for epoxy, I'll have to pick some up and try it out. Have any suggestions on what type of putty? Thanks for the replies :)
  5. Hello everyone, I'm new to the whole miniature hobby as a whole and I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to pin Tobias Winterhorn's arm better. I used CA glue and a paper clip, but the arm has fallen off quite a few times now. The one I own currently is primed and painted now and is going to be used on tabletop for my Pathfinder game as on of my players characters, but I was wondering for the future when I buy another for myself (and possibly when the painted one meets an inevitable accident). Even if you are unfamiliar with this mini, tips on a stronger pinning bond would be appreciated.
