  1. Some pretty good deals in the early bird specials: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/399883540/orc-warband-collectors-by-yedharo-and-gt-studio-cr Offering 30mm, 70mm, Busts and 1/10 () Scale figures. Something for everyone! I got the early bird 4 bust deal. FWIW I have some of their earlier figures and they've been very good quality.

    Farewell Opportunity

    This came across my FB feed today and i got all choked up over a robot! Maybe because it did so much more than it was ever expected to, or that we've been hearing about it for so long. Ah well, RIP little rover - you done good.

    Today's XKCD is applicable as well. https://xkcd.com/2111/
  4. Stumbled across this game the other day and was wondering if anyone had played it? Love the concept and the look of the figures, just wondering if the game is fun & re-playable?

    Orc Warband Collectors by Yedharo

    Well this one is chugging along. Just unlocked the Orc Female Boss bust (say that three times fast), and we'll probably get to the 30mm Orc Warlord today or tomorrow. I really want the Orc Queen on beast, but since she costs almost as much as my 4 bust early deal, I'm not sure my wallet will allow it. Hopefully I can add on in the Pledge Manager.

    77281: Succubus - Speed Paint

    That's a speed paint for you?! Sheesh... Gorgeous job. Strange as it may sound I particularly like the way the rocks turned out. :)
  7. aka Groundhog Day. We went out to check with one of our personal rodents. Sadly, Morrigan saw her shadow, so I guess we're in for another six weeks (wheeks?) of winter.

    Pshaw! What's a couple more busts lurking in the cupboard.

    Black 3.0

    Saved for later. Could be amusing. Not sure how useful it would be for miniatures...

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    She's separate from the throne. If you look at the pictures you can see the space between her hands and the arms of the throne and the line along her butt. Plus they'd never be able to get it out of a mold if it was all in one piece, even with slide mold technology there's no way to do her and the throne as a single piece.

    Sunshine Figures

    Sunshine figure Bust Kickstarter is live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sunshinefigures/girls-girls-girls-1?ref=discovery&term=SUNSHINE FIGURES I'll probably back for a couple. Sucks being broke!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Yeah, a month in Kickstarter time is the blink of an eye for delays. ;) I've got one that's coming up on being a year late, and another that's pushing 4+ months.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I've never received a core set before, so I'm not sure about that, but all the other things I've received have been individually bagged.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    They come in standard sealed plastic bags. Not re-closeable. Probably need to buy assorted zip-locks if that's how you want to sort them out.

    Myth Explorers III

    Nice, but not worth $14-15/figure to me.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I gotta say - this is pretty darned awesome! I hope we get to see pictures of all of them painted (someday).

    What's on TV?

    Without having read the randomness thread, it sort of depends on what kind of delivery system their using for the pepper spray, and what kind it is. I know of a couple of instances where it was used inside a cell or holding area and the only person who was really suffering was the person who was hit with it. At least it worked that way with the stuff most of the guys in the department I worked for used.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Yeah, I was so happy to finally see Goremaw! Now I just have to save up the moolah to buy a copy...
  19. Watched "Venom" over the weekend. It was amusing enough in a "sound and fury signifying nothing" sort of way, but if your ability to suspend disbelief won't shut off during a movie? Yeah, this is one you want to avoid!
  20. Finally got to watch "Hotel Artemis" on New Years Eve. It's an interesting movie and I enjoyed it. I think it didn't really do well because it doesn't really fit into any neat category. At it's heart it's a movie about family and the choices we make for, and because of them. I liked it.
  21. I got five in the first go round. Backing to get a couple of bases and a larger holder to go with the pieces I already have.

    Let's ... errrr ... try ... airbrushing a garage kit

    If it's rubbery, the odds are that it's PVC/Vinyl since that's the other material these things are usually made from. If they used vinyl glue to put it together, I don't know what would work as a de-bonder. On the off chance that they used super glue, you might try freezing it. That usually makes the superglue brittle enough to come apart. Just out of curiosity were you using actual debonder, or acetone/nail polish remover to try and get the seam apart?

    Greebo Alastoran (Chaos/Khorne) football team

    Looks like 7 for me since I have Fluffers but no Demogorgon.

    Let's ... errrr ... try ... airbrushing a garage kit

    FWIW, if you can get her apart and then paint her in sub-assemblies, I think you'll have a MUCH easier time painting this. At the very least, most folks leave the head and/or hair separate until everything is painted. I could see leaving some of the skirt panels off as well. Oc course it depends on what was used to assemble the figure before you got it. If it was super glue - no problem. 5 minute epoxy or something like that? Not really sure what would work as a debonder for that. Best wishes for success!
  25. Got this out of Impact Miniatures last Kickstarter. The master was 3D printed, and then it was produced via spincast resin. Pretty much zero clean-up, although they use a pretty persistent mold release agent. I washed it with Dawn and scrubbed it pretty well. Primed it with Badger Stylynresin and had a bunch of areas where it flaked off with the slightest touch. Gave it another thorough bath & scrub and re-primed with Badger and this time it got a grip. Base coat and initial highlights are Tamiya paints applied via airbrush. Highlights and details are Reaper and Vallejo. Then tried out some Secret Weapon and Mig pigments. There's a spot near the back where you can tell it was a printed master because after i applied a wash it picked out the striations. After highlights you can't really see it. Some of the details lose crispness where parts merge i.e. the banding around the gas tanks isn't as sharply defined where it curves down in the back to meet the hull. All in all it's a pretty nice piece! First Chibi I've ever painted, and while I got inspiration from Odin's Chibi's for the eyes, I need a lot more practice to get them anywhere as nice as his!
