  1. This isn't wholesome family entertainment. Judgement of others based solely on their attractiveness on-screen to/by immature people. Does anyone else find this thread offensively sexist and infantile? What next, post your favorite catcalls!? Post your best way to de-humanize others for entertainment!? Is this what we are teaching young minds browsing these boards as a good way for adults to act? No wonder we are thought of as playing with dolls/toys... Perhaps this thread should be locked as an example of what not to do.....
  2. I would participate if there were a painted miniature only exchange... but since there is not... sigh!
  3. This is a nice mini... love the paint scheme but, ho hum another green elf... perhaps though, a good captain of the guard for my new campaign... and convert to southpaw sword and board... hmmm... just be sure and get the metal one...
  4. As I feared. sigh... Goodbye.
  5. ... a tad bit easier to modify, it is written... easier to cut, it is written... It is also easier to assemble. Super glue will hold the weight of a bones appendage much better than metal too, so no need for pinning in every situation, especially when gap filling is required. This is what I'm asking... Are these differences, calculated in judging, enough to make a difference in the final score? I'm hoping for a better answer than opinions. They have changed their rules before (which I won't get into), and with emerging technology (bones), they may do so again, given circumstances, as everything is mutable... The last time was after the competition. I'm hoping to "head them off at the pass" (pardon the pun), so to speak.... or at least offer food for thought for the future... Thanks.
  6. Yep, I've seen this. But I know it is much simpler to modify bones minis, and/or resin minis, as opposed to metal ones. I asked if there will be a difference in scoring on the difficulty, creativity, or workmanship of the model in question regarding its material? It would be nice to know so I don't go wasting time and money on metal minis when I can get the same scores with bones plastic, and have a much easier time doing the conversions. Or not. Come to think about it, since I don't have to worry about dropping the model, Painting Skill is easier too...
  7. Since modifying Bones minis are so easy compared with Metal, will the Open category of the painting competition be modified for Difficulty, Workmanship, and Creativity to reflect these differences?
  8. Why don't I like this figure? It has a great paint job, cool pose, book, intense stare, nice features, the base is cool. But I am like..., Meh... It just doesn't thrill me. Maybe if I added wings or something, tentacles or spider legs maybe?
  9. If I can make it to Reapercon 2017, I will be bringing many of mine along. I hope to have enough trades for a Pathfinder Harrow deck soon. But, I am picky... Here is an example: Oct4-TentacleTuesday.tif
  10. That paint job is incredible. But the mini should have been named: Elanter, The Ham-Fisted Pudge. With those giant hands and chunky looking tummy, its a whole lotta nope from me. Again. Guess I'll have to wait another month. At least Reaper has tons of other minis I "Need!" LAL...
  11. How can you tell the difference between a Bones model and a Metal model when all you can see is a number, sculptor, price, and a pretty picture of a painted model where you cannot see what it is made of and the text doesn't tell you? I'm sorry, but I won't collect plastic bones models. I want metal only, I'm probably not alone in this. I'd like to get 03702: Peryton but only if it is metal.
  12. Well, for one, if it is a mini painting tournament can we paint minis and not have to build huge dioramas or elaborate bases? Hint: this is why I'm not doing the shoe box diorama so I'm out of that tournament until next year.
  13. I would reverse two and three. Do the base the way you want then attach the model then prime. That way you don't have the feet of the model stuck down into the base but look as if it is on top.
  14. <-------- went from bronze to silver level by throwing away my citadel paints and going with Reapers.... and some Vallejos mixed in...
  15. The only thing I'm getting are the metal Sophies. Some of us don't want plastic in our collections. And, yes, they will go on the self and into my games. Fair warning "Twighlight Demons" (You know who you are). Also, those Sophies are already past the "Martin paint examples" stage. PS., Sounds like there will be extras lying around. So here's hoping I see a couple in the melt bin at next years Reapercon.
