  1. Wet look ok bones

    Good point on the flexing of Bones not being compatible with Future, I can see where that might turn into a cracked up mess. I sincerely apologize if someone tried that before you pointed that out.
  2. Methods for Eyes

    That is the method (mostly) I used. Just wished there was a way to protect each step from the next. One slip up on the last steps and is redo lots of what you just did. Thanks everyone for the input. I'll just keep practicing.
  3. Wet look ok bones

    Future floor wax should work too I would think. Very thin and self levels when brushed on. Also very tintable. Aircraft guys usually dip their clear parts in it as it fills all the microscratches and makes them more clear and shiny.
  4. Methods for Eyes

    Since I can't for the life of me get the seam lines and fuzzies off my Bones Succubus, thought I would use it to practice eye painting since I've only painted one mini so far. Here is my attempt from last night. Deck tan for whites, black brown for liner. Nevermind the Skin painting, was just for cutting in the liner. I used red oil paint on a pin to make the iris. I think it turned out great, but seems to me there has to be a way to cheat at this. The anxiety and anguish of trying over and over and having ruined it at various steps is frustrating. This one took me 3 tries. Anyone tried using liquid watercolors for dotting the eye? seems like if you messed it up it would easily wipe off to try again. I assume I could seal it with airbrushed varnish when done. maybe use a tiny mask to cover the whites so both sides could match, etc? really fishing here....
  5. Best faces on Reaper minis

    To use a vague term, I would say "pretty"? Very subjective I know, but to carry it further, a face that is a well sculpted symmetrical form, slightly larger eyes would be fine. Some I've seen can be too flat or too long, puffy as if Beestung, etc. To throw another requirement in there would be that it's molded crisp to ease the painting, especially the eye shape.
  6. Couldn't find a good way to search for this exact topic, so please forgive me if this has been asked before. I am always fixated on facial and body proportions. I find that lots of 28mm minis have "weird" faces and bodies (too long, too stubby, etc) What would be the best female figures in the Reaper line that have the best facial and body proportions? #14645 Bladeslinger would be a good example of what I am looking for.
  7. Looking for a dominatrix miniature

    Depending on how ..uh.."dominating" you want her to look, Raging heroes has this: https://www.ragingheroes.com/collections/fantasy/products/rythali-in-s-f
  8. After tearing my hair out trying to remove the little fuzzy bits left after trying to clean the mold seams, do you think boiling it or hitting it with a hot hairdryer could melt or minimize those?
  9. Eye decals

    Hey all, would like to split this question into two parts; Can you? Should you? Can you: I know Archer makes decals of human irises that would possibly work down to 54mm size. Has anyone tried this? Should you: Coming from an Aircraft/Armor background, decals are used to simplify complex graphics on things. Most modelers use them routinely. There is no negative stigma associated with their use. Being new to the miniature scene, how is the use of decals viewed? As the painting of eyes, tattoos, etc in these small scales is seen as a talent to aspire to, I would think that using decals could be viewed as "taking a short cut", crutch, etc. Obviously claiming you painted them while using decals would be an ethical no-no. Just wondering what everyone's thoughts on this are.

  11. Paints for sale at Reapercon

    Thanks to everyone for the feedback.
  12. Paints for sale at Reapercon

    Forgive me if there is an obvious answer for this, I've never been to Reapercon before. I am needing quite a few Reaper paints. Will they be for sale at the Con? If so, would they have a Show discount? If not, I'll just go ahead and order some from Reaper now. Thanks

  15. Shades of Black .... take two.

    I really like the monochromatic scheme. Excellent work on the black. Will have to give it a go first time a need comes up
