    Basing Preferences

    I generally put figures on to either square or round bases for the additional stability and then blend the broccoli in with two part epoxy putty which gives me the working time to add matching texture. Flocking is usually Woodland Scenics stuff where appropriate. In the US you can pick up BIG jars from Hobby Lobby for a good price, especially if you use the 40% off coupon. On another note - did you say you're using a 5/0 brush for most of your painting and are looking at a 20/0?! Wow! Unless you're painting eyes on micro armor scale figs, you should look into getting some good quality larger brushes. Largest brush I use is a 2, and the smallest is a 2/0. The paint stays liquid on the brush longer so you get better flow, and ultimately better coverage. Your choice of course, I just thought I'd throw it out there. Michael

    Air elemental

    Can't really help you with the colors, but I gotta say I really like the idea with the wire and the leves swirling around it. Adds a real sense of motion to the figure. Loooking forward to seeing this when its done. Michael

    Adeptus Arbites Patrol 450

    Man! I used to have a squad of those guys (except for the Ogre)! Nice job on them. I particularly like the grunge on the commanders coat. :) Michael

    What to do w/ Swag Pts. now that RCon is over?

    Yup, had something similar to me as well. I think I turned in probably 400 or so. I know I had about 2,000 ReaperBucks when I turned them. I can't recall the exchange ratio. RM 1 Swag point = 10 Reaper Bucks
  9. Maybe that needs to be a class for next ReaperCon/ArtistCon! :)
  10. That's positively bad@ss! :) I've always like the monochrome look when well executed, and this is great!

    Reaper Con Photos?

    Just wanted to say that it's really cool seeing both of my entries in your photos. These are actually the first pics I've seen of my stuff...haven't even taken any myself yet. It was an awesome competition. Thanks for sharing. Stephanie Sasaki My pleasure! Which two are yours?

    ReaperCon 2011

    Well, I survived my 1st ReaperCon and actually made it home in one piece. Be doing better at work today if the plane hadn't been running 2.5 hours late!! Ah well. That's the price we pay to play fun games, learn lots o' new painting stuff, and meet plenty of cool people. Had a blast - thanks Reaper (and all the volunteers who help make the Con what it is)!!

    The Adoption Table

    "And I may have got my hands on the find of all finds at the adoption table---an intact, beautifully painted TOS Starship Enterprise. Haldir can verify my find." I can as well! I saw it when it was on the table. Lots of cool stuff ebbed and flowed over the surface of that table! :)

    Biker Sophie, Possible Skeksis, Cyborg Accomplices

    Nice work! FWIW, I'm pretty sure the 2nd figure is an old GW TZeentch Sorcerer ( as in 90's vintage old). Michael
