  1. I love seeing old miniatures painted. Brilliant work. The Egg
  2. Very nice! The colors really "pop" and the OSL looks perfect. Th Egg
  3. I was a W&N #7 hardliner for many years. However, the spate of really crap brushes that came from them a few years back shook my faith in their product. Since then, I've made an effort to broaden my horizons a bit further by trying brushes from different manufacturers - and I've found they all have their strengths and weaknesses. The Reaper brushes I honestly don't mind using, though I do prefer Raphaels. I've even started using a lot of cheapo bristle brushes for certain tasks. I guess what I'm trying to get at is that is is no magic paintbrush that'll do it all. As always, YMMV. The Egg
  4. Gorgeous. Simply gorgeous. Yours is my favorite version of DDS2, and I haven't even seen the dragon yet. Heartbreakingly good work. The Egg
  5. Yoiks! That dragon looks REALLY good. I love the blue you used. The Egg
  6. My internal monologue with the transparent pieces: *picks up mini* "Oh, a clear Bones piece. That's kinda different." *hoses miniature down with primer and starts painting it* If Reaper wants to continue experimenting with transparent/translucent/clear/etc. plastic I don't mind. But so far, I really haven't gotten any more mileage out of any of these pieces than I have from the standard Bones. To me it's a neat gimmick, but a gimmick nonetheless. The Egg
  7. Wow. That is a brilliant piece. Very well done. The Egg
  8. Very nice. I really like the base. The Egg
  9. Every time I think I'm out, they pull me back in again . . . *starts counting money in wallet* The Egg
  10. Nicely done. Especially the teeth. One minor suggestion, you might want to add a bit highlight to the interior of the mouth to make the details "pop." Otherwise the piece looks great. The Egg
  11. Looks good to me. Especially with that stripe. The Egg
  12. A few Planescape based suggestions: Astral Dreadnought, Mezzodaemon, Molydeus, Retriever. The Egg
  13. Very nice. The colors you used on him make me think of the Black Beast of Arrgh from Monty and the Holy Grail when I look at him. And that kooky grin of his in the second pic slays me. The Egg
  14. Wouldn't be the first time people wanted to burn me, won't be the last . . . The Egg
