    I play drums and guitar, paint minis, collect unwanted socks, have a most enviable Wacky Packages collection, work hard, ride my horse and shoot my gun, am a graphic artist and a salesman - weird, huh?, write and read a lot, and dig philosophical discussions and RPGs too.
  1. One Kickstarter Vampire box of bones painted

    How did you prep these prior to that first base coat?
  2. VMC at my LGS

    Does Hobby Lobby only sell single bottles of Vallejo or do they also sell sets? Do they sell the various acrylic lines of Vallejo (model color, model air, game color)? Like others have said, Hobby Lobby only sells a limited selection of VMC singles. I make it a point to stop in when I have to go to a store nearby just to get a single bottle. I believe it comes out to less than $2 with the 40% off coupon. The only sets I recall seeing there are the Testor's and I haven't tried their acrylics yet. The online 40%-off coupon reads like you'd only be able to buy one bottle with this discount. Has that been your experience?
  3. VMC at my LGS

    Thanks to all of y'all. I've put together a tremendous (tentative) list that I can work from. Thanks for spending the time. I appreciate it. I'll post my purchases tomorrow.

I was wondering the same so I gave them a call. I didn't realize they are closed on Sunday. I'm gonna call around and check tomorrow.They're the Chick-Fil-A of hobby stores. HA!

  6. 2013 Twelve Days of Reaper discussion thread

    09658 Christmas Wreath?! Whoa. I didn't receive that one this year. I wonder if I can pick that up at Reaper.
  7. holiday paint binge challenge

    I've got the next three days off. Going to The Granada to see A Hard Night's Day tomorrow but I'll see what I can finish and post before the 1st.
  8. VMC at my LGS

    Most all of my paints are Pro Paints, MSPs (including some HDs) and P3 pots. Acrylic is acrylic, true. But that's an oversimplification. And a 3 for 2 deal? I've just got to check-out the VMC line - see what they're all about. And I admit. I'm a freak for paint. I already own too many.
  9. VMC at my LGS

    I'm making a pre-list right now that includes several greens that I like based on Vallejo's Model swatches. Are there any reds/greens/others specifically you'd recommend?
  10. VMC at my LGS

    I've read that the Vallejo Air Colors are spectacular metallics, but my LGS hasn't begun carrying them. I'm going to pick-up some silvers and golds when they do.
  11. VMC at my LGS

    While Christmas shopping this year, I made a stop at my LGS - for the first time in ages. They have completely stopped carrying Reaper product (smh). No prob. I live in Texas and get my stuff in Denton. I noticed that they have, however, started carrying the entire line of Vallejo Game and Model Colors. They are also running a buy 2/get one free special. I am not very interested in checking-out any Game Colors (I bought them before - too glossy for me) but I've always been interested in checking out their Model Color line. I've read the pros/cons of VMC. I still want to buy a few to check-out their properties for myself. My question for you good people: what shades of VMC have y'all found useful, enjoyable, what to stay away from, etc. Any favorite VMCs out there?
  12. Occullus, The Eye Beast Hour by Hour WIP

    I'm with Dixon and Lastman. I'd leave the base as is. If you must put something in, I'd suggest a simple Reaper skull (i.e. the ones that are in every bottle of paint). Something VERY simple. I've also been following since your initial post and must reiterate...FANTASTIC job! Start to finish. My skills are lacking in comparison to yours - and my mind is blown!
  13. Reapercon 2013 dates April 18-21

    I sure hope I can make it this year. Sucked having to buy Chronoscope Pirate Sophie online.
  14. Varnish Makes Me Weep

    Anne. How often do you seal your mini-masterpieces (i.e. showpieces, competition, etc.)?
  15. Any chance someone could score me a Mousling?

    Mike - I MIGHT be heading out there this weekend. If I do I'll pick ya up one and I'll letcha know for sure I'm going before I leave.
