    Priming for mold lines

    I put black ink on the mold lines of my minis before filing them off. Cuts down on the number of lines I miss, but there aren't as many places I have to repair the primer.

    Help - Looking for Gorilla Minis

    Was it the Ape Attack add on for Bones 4? I pledged for that. Sculpted by Jason Weibe if I remember correctly.
  4. I have finally started working on my many Bones minis. This first one is 773000 Antipaladin by Bobby Jackson. It is mostly an experimental/ practice piece. I am not completely happy with my mold line removal, but in this case I am not going to worry about it too much. Mostly it is to get me acquainted with working with Bones minis and to experiment with my new Scale 75 metallic paints. I am not happy with all of the photos, my old photo setup got broken and I haven't gotten it replaced yet and just as I was taking these pictures one of my light bulbs went out and I don't have a replacement. Should be able to get better pics once I get a new bulb. First off I base coated the cape with Nightmare Black. This was a new paint purchase and I wanted to play with it. Really like this color. Next I used Faded black to Undercoat the skulls on the armor. I'm planning to do these in a metallic steel. Used Tanned skin as a base coat on his head. Next came Ultramarine Shadow for the armor undercoat. I really like this color for this as I am going to do the majority of the armor in a dark blue steel tone. The only down side is that the blue colors are fairly transparent and so take several coats to get good coverage. Looks like I am having some chipping issues, but I think I have that issue solved. Hope to get some more work done on him soon if life doesn't make me do other things first

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Surprise birthday party was a success. We hung out and ate Barbecue and watched a couple of bad movies and part of O Brother Were Art Thou. Adult beverages were also consumed.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Going to a surprise birthday party. It was supposed to be a O Brother Where Art Thou themed costume party, but the person who planned it forgot about the theme. So now it is just a regular surprise party. The birthday boy thinks he is going to a Freedom City RPG game. Also no party decorations because reasons. Mr Flit was a bit annoyed about the lack of preparation. I told him that the whole group is cats, he knows he has to heard the cats. We had a whole RPG session that was called Hearding Cats. He should be used to this by now. His reply was that he thought the planner was a better cat hearder.

    After a frustrating day shopping, I got some painting in. May get some pictures up soon for a WIP thread.
  11. I like the surprise. I prefer metal minis, but Bones, plastic, resin, etc all good too.

    Desk Lamp?

    I use a standard desk lamp (you could also use a clip on type) that I bought in a local discount store and use a daylight balanced LED bulb in it.

    I got some base coats on my Bones mini this evening. I may have already painted myself into a corner on it. That's Ok though, it is mainly an experimental mini. I think Nightmare Black may be my new favorite color.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I finally got my first Bones mini all primed and ready to paint. Used Reaper's White Brush-on Primer with a couple of drops of Brush-on Sealer. It worked just fine. I know I missed some mold lines (I hates them Precious.) I figure its good enough for experimenting with Bone and getting back into putting paint on a mini in way to long a time.

    Has anyone tried to order a ReaperCon Sophie yet? I tried but it won't go into my cart. (Already have some other items I need in my cart) Maybe I'm just impatient. And not having a good day.

    My dice hated me tonight. Barely rolled over a 9 all session. I didn't die but was getting low on hit points for a while. May have to buy new dice.
