  1. Horned helmet duo

    Yeah. They have a very Boris Vallejo-ish feel to them. Nice work. The Egg
  2. 02923: Princess of Hell

    Very nice. I really like the colour palette you used for that piece. The Egg
  3. Getting to Know You, April 2018

    None of the above actually. It all sounds like a lot of work . . . The Egg
  4. I always build the best machine I can afford, and the decision to go with an older card was driven by cost. Graphics cards are stupidly expensive right now (as is RAM) and I wasn't willing to dump $800+ on a card. The 1050 TI was right in the sweet spot - powerful enough for my needs (I'm a casual gamer) and at a price I could stomach. Besides, it's a massive step up from the GTX 560 TI in the old 2500k build that it's replacing. The Egg
  5. I'm currently building a new PC: i5-8600K 3.6ghz (6 core) Coffee Lake Corsair Hydro Series H100i V2 Liquid CPU Cooler ASUS ROG Strix Z370-E MoBo MSI GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GAMING X 4G 16GB DDR4 3200 Corsair Vengeance LPX RAM 2x WD Blue 250GB SSD 2x WD Blue 4TB HDD Corsair HX Series HX850 The Egg
  6. I don't like halflings period. But, I am a completist at heart, so I'll be ordering him . . . The Egg
  7. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Getting my convertibles out of storage and getting to work on them. I've got a few tweaks to perform on the TR6, and I hope to get the Alpine on the road before the end of the summer. The Egg
  8. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Yes. Probably about a thousand between my recovered lead boxes and the crates of minis that are still in the blister. Highlights include a complete run of Ral Partha Limited Edition boxes and a complete set of Julie Guthrie Personalities by Grenadier. The Egg
  9. In preparation for Spring, I've just ordered a load of parts for my vintage cars. The Alpine's brake system will be getting a complete overhaul from front to back. The TR6 will be getting performance upgrades in the form of an electric engine fan and a gear reduction starter. The Egg
  10. Painting a Kraken - Step By Step

    Very nicely done. The Egg
  11. Dragon Lords: Grenadier miniatures

    Yeah . . . 200 Euro for the complete run of boxed sets is pretty damned steep as far as I'm concerned. The Egg
  12. Clippers?

    Another vote for Xuron sidecutters and shears here. Got mine from Micro-Mark. The Egg
  13. Rappan Athik 5th ed!

    I'm in for the upgrade to the 2012 S&W edition. I'm not a 5e gamer (stopped buying new rules at 2e), so I can pass on investing in the the whole shebang. The Egg
  14. Ordered. The Egg
  15. Just placed my third monthly order in support of Reaper's Dungeon Dwellers promo. More holes in my DHL collection have been filled which now gives me complete run of figs from #2000-3330. The Egg
  16. Grenadier Balrog

    Wow. I haven't seen one of those pieces in years. It's great to see one painted. Very nice. The Egg
  17. 77578 Stormwing, Dragon - Bones 3

    Very nicely done. I plan on stealing the color palette you used for one of my Stormwing figs. The Egg
  18. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    This happens to me too often to mention any specifics. I'm an insomniac. The Egg
  19. Holding parts while super gluing

    FYI, Hanger 18 has all kinds of hobby-ready clips for sale. The Egg
  20. Priming my pewter

    I use grey auto primer for pretty much everything. Usually Rustoleum or Krylon. The Egg
  21. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    First miniature was an Asgard Miniatures Dwarf Lord (DA3) I bought almost 35 years ago. I have him around here somewhere . . . I've painted too many pieces to keep track of a "best" miniature anymore. Suffice to say, I improve with every mini I paint. Partly for money. Partly to relax. Partly as a creative outlet. The Egg
  22. I just placed my second monthly order in support of Reaper's Dungeon Dwellers promo. Some more holes in my DHL collection have been filled, which now gives me complete run of figs from #2000-3320. The Egg
  23. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    It's official. My better half and myself will be attending again this year. Hopefully, we'll be able to meet a few more of you forumites this time around. The Egg
  24. Static Grass Applicators

    +1 on the effectiveness of plastic containers. I use the Woodland Scenics static grass sold in clear plastic shakers. All you need to do is rattle the stuff around a bit and then shake it out. Works like a charm. The Egg
  25. Reaper Radio

    Spinning up some old Alien Sex Fiend LPs in my workshop while I paint today. The Egg
