  1. Thank you Mark! I was ever so hoping she'd become available. I'm already in for over $120, guess I can add more now. Cheers on a successful campaign.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Thanks @NecroMancer & @Cyradis. I've added to the pledge, and was hoping it would work like that.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Got my pledge in for 2 busts, but i have a question maybe y'all can answer as i'm fairly new to KS. If I wanna add add-ons such as the stands for the busts and a set of brushes, do I just change my pledge amount and hope they inquire, or do they have a order form to fill?
  4. Lots of work done, so much more to go. You can rock it! I'm tempted to do a Khanjira challenge as I have many days off in December, but the SO would probably have issues to it. So I'll vicariously do the challenge by watching your awesomeness.

    Hang out and paint - Discord and Google Hangouts

    I been looking for the "Hey! I'm online" thread but my Search-fu sucks. Been trying to be more social and thought a hangout while my brush made a mess of a mini. Is there a general hangout or discord that is always available or is one created away the time someone sets it up? I've not used either platform before.

    Favored paint handle putty

    @CorallineAlgae That's what i'm working with. I bought the grip to go with, since I was so use to the Citadel holder. Never thought of the foam tape. Might be an experiment. Trying to get the Frost Giant Princess Svetlana (metal) to stay on caps is being a pain.

    Favored paint handle putty

    That's the holder. I've tried hot glue, and the poster tack. Each allowed my model to tumble off after a short while. I just worried to use super glue on the mini before basing it, and I've yet to learn how to pin.
  8. Title asks it all. I have the hobby holder miniature painting handle and need a putty that'll hold up to some of reaper's bigger models. I found some blue poster tack stuff, but my model keeps taking a tumble. And suggestions from the hive mind?

    01596 Joy, Winter Fairy, sculpted by B. Ridolfi

    Simply amazing work. Thank you for sharing your inspiration and providing some of us with some too.
  10. @Zanderina and I just saw that model today and nearly ordered a few of them. That's very close to the style she has been searching for.

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    That's pretty much what i meant. I have tried hitting up the University of YouTube for such, as well as creative beginning basing ideas, but without the working basics of the ideas I get frustrated. I know it takes trial and error, hence why I have many models with arms and weapons glued on funky or some on blank bases with just a little Citadel texture paint globbed on. The more you know, the more pleasure you can get out of the journey to a finished mini, at least that's my thoughts. This x2!!

    ReaperCon 2019 -- Classes I Would Take

    Didn't see a class this year about it, but maybe a 202 level class on model prep would be helpful for many newbs, kinda like me. Now i'm not suggesting a tutorial on washing the minis, but proper pinning and general positioning on bases. I can't for the life of me pin a tiny weapon, or an arm, or a model who is standing on one foot to a base Would be nice to know a trick or such for it.

    Practice?

    The "I am not good enough to paint this mini" syndrome is so real. I have 2 busts and MANY models I feel I could never do justice at my current skill level and that has stunted me I think. Hence why I like to think I'll use practice models, but even then I feel i'm not good enough to do the different techniques. Maybe I should do like y'all and just drive face first into the work and see what happens... what's the worse that can happen, right? And I do want to thank everyone on the boards for inspiration to keep going after Reapercon. So much great work was shown and I felt overwhelmed and under skilled. Makes me want to reach new personal achievements.

    Getting Started With Busts

    I won the same Bombshell bust during the auction. She'll be a trip and a learning experience for sure. I'm scared i'm going to mess it up royally. Was told many many times over the course of the Con, practice is the best teacher. Here is to us, sitting our butts in our painting chairs. Cheers!
