    Port Gangrel (1.2)

    I just got Kassandra, 2 Shadowsisters, 1 Bowsister, and Callindra Silverspell. The Sisters are going to be my next army. I can't wait to field a unit of assassins. I also got Anwyn the Female Bard for the Shadowsister musician. I am probably going to get Astrid for either the Bowsisters or the Bladesisters. Now all we need are Lancesisters, or maybe Axesisters (breakers).

    Mini exchange for urion

    It is a beautiful mini. The skin and cloth are very smooth and the transitions are great. Good work.

    Was I the last to know??

    I didn't know you cared. You know what? I don't find it so amusing. I never have. Has any else noticed that this figure's name is Urian I just had to post, this is just too weird.

    Coup de Grace

    It seems to me that reload is meant to slow down a gun so that it can't fire every turn. If you make reloading a NCA then there is not really any point in the reload rule.

    18208 : Ink Extender (Clear)

    Thanks Qwyksilver.
  7. Can the Reaper ink extender (18208 : Ink Extender (Clear)) be used with normal Master Series Paints to extend their drying time or does it only work on inks? I am looking for a general purpose extender from Reaper are their any plans to add it to the MSP line or maybe the Pro Series?
  8. Thank you. All this information helps a lot. I have saved your post on my computer and I will look into getting some oil paints. I have a painting background so I already have an understanding of color thoery and things like that so it should not be too hard to mix paints, which I do with acrylics anyway. I will also check out some of the historical mini sites. Thanks very much!
  9. I have been painting minis with acrylics for about 17 years now and I am interested in converting to oils. Is there anyone who uses oil paints to paint minis that can give me a few tips and maybe suggest a paint line to use?

    Necropolis - Crimson Knights

    That was a mistake. Never try to apply "common sense" from the real world on game mechanics. It never works. The rule does not have to be justified by real world examples as long as it makes sense in game mechanics. You can only loot something once and that is all there is to it. I say this as a Necropolis player so I am not biased. The Nefsokar actually have a bit of an advantage because of "Crossing Death's River" in a tournament. If you move your troops in two waves during a tournament you can teleport the casualties into the back of the line and the active models into the front lines. That way your opponent has to go through your entire army to loot your casualties.

    My Summer Exchange Mini

    Thank you. I really enjoyed painting this piece. I decided that "La Belle Dame Sans Merci" was an appropriate name for it. You took excellent pictures of her. Mine were not as good. I thought about doing a "blood in the water" look, but I didn't think I could pull it off so I left it alone, probably a wise decision.

    Summer 06 Reaper mini exchange

    My mini has been sent. If the person I sent it to could post when they get it I would appreciate the heads up. It won a Reaper painting contest and they want to post the picture of it. I hope you like the mini. I think it is my best Reaper mini so far.
  13. My little suggestion from playing Nefsokar would be to leave out the Anubis Guard, I haven't had much luck with their DV8, and add in two Tomb Guard and another Ammat devourer and give Netikerti another Life Drain. It will bring you to 1499.

    Slave Pits of Craclaw

    I knew that not everyone can make it to Reapercon even as I wrote my post. It was meant more to show that Reaper is not in the least bit like GW when it comes to milking its customers for all their worth. They are willing to go further to please their customers.

    Slave Pits of Craclaw

    I've been away for a little while because of a computer problem so I have had to play catch up on posts so forgive me for responding to older posts. I've noticed that while looking through various topics I find too many mentions of "GW like" references. I think that before someone makes such a comment they should think about the motivations behind what each company does. The reason reaper changed the Warriors to Adepts is because they were too powerful, not so they could trick you into buying a lot of them and then making them unusable. GW changes their army composition every couple years when they completely revamp their $50 rulebook. Then they come out with all new faction books that you have to buy if you want to know the stats for the armies you use. So far Reaper has changed its rulebook once and you don't even need to buy a new one because they give you the changes FREE on their website. ALL the information you need to use ANY army is online as well. Another thing about the excess adept problem is that if you can make it to Reapercon you can trade them in for new models. Try going to Games Day and asking them if you can trade out for their newer models and see what happens. Reaper and GW are both in business to make money, but Reaper is not willing to sacrifice its customers for profits where as GW is, that is why GW is down to 1 Million customers from 5 Million. When Reaper does something there is usually a very clear reason, other than just wanting to hose their customers for more money. PS. Downwithgamesworkshop!
