    Mini's.....DUH!
  1. Just attend any ReaperCon and the hotel will be littered with drunk painters and gamers. ShinerCon is an ongoing thing.
  2. Thanks...although you'll have to explain to me what the "Sokar has Beer" award is "Sokar has beer" was the mantra at ReaperCon 06 after party dubbed "ShinerCon". Its a play on the Nefsokar faction ability 'Sokar is near".
  3. Perhaps even cooler than...gulp...MONKEYS.
  4. I have a special place in my heart for historical pieces and these look good. Individual close-ups would be nice, but I am happy that you shared these. Nice work.
  5. If u don';t win the contest at least you should get the "Sokar has Beer" award.
  6. I absolutely love your WWII pieces. The first time paint job is stunning. It took me years to paint that well. Thanks for sharing.
  7. I like this piece and you did a good job on her. The camera is so aweful when it comes to metalics. I have seen some demi-metalic work that comes off well with the camera. I am sure there is a tutorial or WIP giving details. IMHO I don't really think she needs anything more unless you are going for show/contest quality.
  8. I was actually OK with this mini until the stool comment at the end. Now I am ashamed that I actually looked several times to find it
  9. Any indication when we may get a sneek peek of 014549, Reptus Dragonrider Broodmaster? Noticed the data card actually has a model number assigned to it so hopefully soon™ .
  10. Looks like my only hope of getting a prize will be as a bribe so I don't try and send them my special brand of stink ever again.
  11. As a fat, old and ugly guy, I find it sad that he is prettier than me. Just curious what Reaper Clark had to say about this guy.
  12. Simple and Stoney. Love the eyes evil glint and bright toothy smile. (He must floss daily)
  13. Your use of color is brilliant. Very crisp looking work.
  14. If you want to get a quick start you can use clear spray paint (or a color close to the desired base color). It will eat right into the foam and leave a nice trench. I use this on game boards for valleys and riverbeds. Saves ALOT of time, but its tricky to control.
  15. I strongly suggest care in using this technique. Most metal minis, especially Reaper are made of a tin alloy (90-96% typically). The melting point of tin is 449 degrees and some alloys can lower that point to as low as 394 degrees. The "cure point" tends to be around 250 degrees for most of these alloys. In a 250 degree oven, it can be possible to distort the details on the mini if the metal has lost its cure. On the other hand, I have used this type of dry curing method on tin before to ensure a smooth phosphorus coat before electoless copper coating. 200 degrees should be theoretically safe, though.
