  1. Here is a mini I did a bit ago. Looks like a lot of the painting I've finished in the last year or so I hadn't had time to post. Anyways, here were more of my expirents with TMM. This guy uses reaper, P3 and Scale 75 metal paints. I can't remember if I used some of the Vallejo alcohol based Metalics for highlights or not.
  2. I don't think I made any adjustments to these pics. But I could be wrong. Because I think originally I was thinking I'd only be posting 2 of them. I didn't know if the second side view really added anything. So if I did do any color adjusting I may have done it to the other two images.
  3. My husband will occasionally watch Angry Joe watch and comment on a trailer. I'm not sure If he has seen the trailer separately or not. For me, if im in the room, I can see the trailer and decide if I ever need to see the movie all at the same time, so If he is watching it, and Im already neutral to negative on the movie, I may watch as well to decide if I should ever give the movie any more of my time ever. I dont watch trailers of movies movies I already know I want to see.
  4. I'm dying! Please save me! I can't go on without knowing what Augusts mini will be! *gasps*
  5. Based on your previous demonstrated ability, I still think you'll get more than a silver. Loving the blue as the highlights, btw.

    You can dilute the darker liners with brush on sealer. I've had good results with that. The like is because I'm a sadist.
  7. Looking good!
  8. Oooo that millput and the basics stuff looks good.
  9. Is there an ogre who smells good? Well at least not in comparison to @buglips*the*goblin. --- Nice looking mini. Like the very clear color areas. Especially Ike the blood on the club.
  10. I don't see any issue with her right eye. Looks good!
  11. I especially like your jars. Mine currently are not doing anything I like. I am going to have to take some notes from yours.
  12. I got this guy done a few weeks ago, but I didn't pull out my camera to photograph him. Got to use him in a Pathfinder game a couple weeks ago. Made my heart beam with pride and joy being able to use a painted mini for what it was intended for in a game.

    @Pochi I don't know why I keep saying beige when I mean Sepia. The sepia liner has problems when used as a Bones primer. I have had no problems with Grey, Brown, Blue or Green. (I haven't tried red yet.) Sepia liner has rubbed off with the lightest touch when I have used it. I found this out after I primed a number of minis for my husband and I to take to a convention. Luckily he had changed his mind and no longer wished to play a Dwarf. So I experimented. I had noticed that the bits I had painted with several layers of paint had much better durability. I coated him in brush on sealer. I then threw him in with a bunch of other minis, where he was sucked right or roughly jostled. He came out pretty good. There was some minor wear, but not bad for something that previously could withstand someone sneezing in its general vicinity. However, even with the brush on sealer, the sepia liner 'primed' Bones figure still would rub off with decent pressure. (See below photo.) however Bones 'primed' with the other liners or just painted with a coat of non thinned paint directly, and then coated with brush on sealer have excellent durability. I have aggressively rubbed it, and have not been able to remove any paint. Prelim tests show continued good results. I am now going to extensively test them (i.e. Take them back and forth to a Pathfinder game toting them in a tub and allowing players to grab them and do what they will. We will see how they continue to fair.) Sepia liner with brush on sealer durability test. Where I rubbed with moderate pressure. No additional pressure, all wear is from banging around in a bin during a convention, and being jostled while sorting and deploying other minis. (note a couple of the white spots are glare, but the wear on his mustache is real wear and representative of the wear that was on his back efore I tried to see how much more would come off and how easily.)
  14. There are are a lot of things that can influence fatigue. I know. I also deal with it a lot. However I have found addressing as many potentional factors as possible is very helpful and I have less fatigue less often. One of the things that could be a factor is iodine intake. Most western diets are nutritionally poor in iodine, and though for the most part I do not eat a traditional American diet, I also do not often eat fish more than once a week. I don't like eggs, and don't eat much dairy. (Though one source I looked at mentioned pasture raised tends to have higher iodine, but be aware that source was a bit more on the hippy dippy side. Though still had good scientific facts.) I don't take supplements, and have realized I have replaced all of my iodinated salt sources. My hypothyriodism has an autoimmune component, and im on hormone replacement, but I'd rather make sure my thyroid has enough base material to work as well as it can. I just found it funny that it took me that long to stick the pieces together. Kitties get dry food every night except, Wednesday, Saturday and when friends come over. We were out of wet food last week, even though we had people come over twice, the cats did not revolt because we gave them lots of extra treats. However, when friends were over last night, I only gave them 'special food' (i.e. A can of fancy feast to share between the two of them.) and forgot to give them dry food. My husband can't stand the smell of special food so he doesn't like me feeding them before we go to bed. So for about an hour Ripley has been her most cutely annoying. Pawing my leg. *meow* *meow* *meow* I realized pretty quickly what she was trying to tell me, but I took 20 mintied to comply. (Can't encourage that behavior and have it bleed over into 'hey, you didn't feed me enough.' -"and etc.) There are are a lot of things that can influence fatigue. I know. I also deal with it a lot.

  15. This is absolutely true. However, due to 'reasons' we don't have a outside water line that is tracked separate from the house, and to help keep human waste from entering the water supply during heavy rainstorms the guberment made my city sign a consent decree which means my sewage bill is 3x that of our water bill. I personally hate paying three times for something I didn't actually use, and didn't actually need. So when it comes to rain, I try to play the odds. There are some mental illnesses that can behave in a similar manner, but I know exactly what you're talking about. I have to watch myself or I may also not treat the situation in the most optimal manner.
  16. I swear the weather report yesterday morning said only 30% chance of showers with high of 92 today. Its rained all night. I'm so glad I did 30 minutes of watering yesterday that I could have spent on painting. :grumbles: its so so dark outside it feels like 6 am and not almost 11.

    @Pochi - it may not scratch off the paint. I will add the harder plastics to my durability tests, but right now, thick paint on bones (with or with out using liner as primer(avoid beige liner though)) and then a coat of brush on sealer (if necessary) creates a quite durable coat. I've squeezed minis into a small tub and dragged them through conventions and gotten no damage on those prepared as above. Only problems I've encountered related to the old walnut brown, beige liner, and paint that was rather thin on the mini. (Or less than 24 hours since painting it.) but all all those experiments have been on the softer bones. I'll paint up one of the dark grey ones, but I suspect similar or the exact same performance. So it should be able to withstand the stress of being put together/taken apart. But hey, I could be wrong, and it does sound like you've monkeyed with the actual pieces more than so have.
  18. I will I'll have to file away this information on B A Mason.... I feed the cats right before bed. They never wake me up. ok sometimes they do jump on my belly or step on some sensitive parts cause they want snuggles.

    It was my understand that the roof did come off the masolium... it's just a little tight.
  20. I will eat my hat if you only get a bronze.
  21. Happy slightly belated birthday! miss seeing around this parts as much as I used to! but sort of fun birthday plans did you do?
  22. I'm very excited by with how the 'water' will break on the figure based on the height of your previous forms.
  23. Ok... so I had been thinking about entering a dragon for reaper con... now I do t think I will. :backs away, feeling not worthy!: (kidding! If I finish a dragon I'll bring the dragon. I just know mine won't win anything.) She looks really good as a magma dragon. I really like what you're doing with her.
  24. Sorry to hear about the hassles with the forms!
  25. I looked at my minis that I had slathered it on... and I am quite impressed. There was none of the shine I had remembered it having. Also, durability testing appears to suggest that the brush on primer increases the durability on Bones quiet a bit.
