    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!
  2. 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!

    Bad Squiddo Games: Onna Bugeisha and the Women of Feudal Japan

    I went for the Bushidoge and Shogun Meow, Ninja's & a badge. Would have like more, but finances didn't allow for it at this time.

    Kristof65's new painting/gaming area

    Okay, THAT is one freaking cool rack! What a great way to organize triads! I was going to ask where you got it, and then read that you printed it. <sigh> I SO want a 3D printer! Cool work.
  6. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-siblings-of-conflict-miniatures?ref=friends_launched About The siblings of conflict are here! Attack! this interstellar army of hardboiled girls are ready to conquer your tabletop! Assemble unique squads with powerful weapons, led by brave leaders. They're cute, they're rowdy, they are the siblings of conflict! STRETCH GOALS We're planning amazing, unique hero characters, and more! Surprises await! New Stretch Goals will appear as the campaign advances! Chibi miniatures! Chibis are adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia. This is the NINTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Siblings of Conflict chibi miniatures along with sci-fi allies & enemies for them to combat! The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. The Miniatures ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint). As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts. The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible). You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing above. Miniature Quality While many of the miniatures in this KickStarter will be 3-D printed, the quality will be a very high level since they are 25 to 50 micron 3-D SLA prints which are very different than ABS prints. Below is an extreme close -up example of a printed figure and how it shows no print lines when primed and painted (with no other prep work). Many thanks to Yeji Kim for her painting of Vanguard Leader Anna (top row) and Jason Turner for the painting of Vanguard Leader Anna and Vanguard Trooper #3 (bottom row)! Shipping Shipping will be charged in the pledge manager after the project. At this time we are estimating $5 for US backers, $13 for Canada and $17 for Rest of World. Shipping of the KickStarter will be EU Friendly and should not incur any customs fees.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I had five picked, then deleted them one by one. As soon as I took the last one out, the shipping charge went away. Weird...

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I went with Aruk'ka, Lisbeth, Loreen (+arm), Jynz & Zhoor. I was going to get the badges for them, but seeing the extra charges for shipping I changed my mind.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Pledge manager showed up today. FWIW if you want to do add-ons, they're actually charging MORE than retail for the figures this time. List for most of the 75mm is 41.2 Euros, but 45 in the PM. List for the 35mm is ~10 but they're 12 in the PM. Also I added one arm and five of the badges and suddenly I was paying 8.3 Euros for shipping. Deleted the badges and shipping went back to zero. Just thought I'd let folks know.

    Impact Miniatures Chibi Siblings of Conflict

    Managed to JUST hit all the stretch goals. Nicely done folks! :)
  11. Alright, 50 hours to go - bring on the next stretch goal!
  12. 30mm Cowboy unlocked! Now on to the 2nd Dragon Summoner.

    And Rosie is unlocked! Onwards to Nancy and whoever may lurk beyond!

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Well, I got the email announcing the project at 09:59 and backed at 10:15, so I'm pretty sure I was within the first 24 hours...
  15. Mckenna35

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Had to go back an check and I'm backer #14, so I should qualify as well.

    Just be aware that they WILL charge shipping if you add paints to your order.

    Happy Birthday Mckenna35

    Thanks! Another thrilling day at work, followed by taking a vehicle to the shop for routine maintenance, but I get to go to Outback for dinner so there's that. :)
  18. Here's hoping they deliver the last couple of KS before they launch this one...
  19. Mckenna35

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I'm currently looking at Aruh'ka, Lisbeth, Loreen, Jynz and Zhoor. Things may change by the time the PM actually shows up and we see full renders.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    Well, all the comments they were seeing were from people whining that the bust didn't match the figure, so they changed it. If you really don't like it, you still have time to cancel your pledge. I'd actually reduced my pledge from 2 to 1 bust, to try and be responsible, but now that the free one unlocked I went back and upgraded to BOOM! Average cost of 24 Euros a bust is too tempting to pass on! Sigh... Ah well, tomorrows my birthday, so I'm just getting something for myself!

    and Peach is unlocked! On to the Assassin!

    Bad Squiddo Games: Onna Bugeisha and the Women of Feudal Japan

    This is literally a one woman shop out of England. I think there may be a few shops in England that have some of the figures she's commissioned to be sculpted, but that's it. She does have her own shop, where these will be available (Google Bad Squiddo).

    Heresylab - Scifi Heresy Girls - Miniature Set 1.2

    Wow! People want to complain about Reaper not sticking to the concept art? Go look at what this KS has done with the last two figures! The latest sculpt bears NO resemblance to the concept art! Cancelled THAT one out of my order as well. While he's stated he's instructed the 'sculptor' to stick closer to the concept art for the last couple, I should probably go back and cancel the other that's in my order. Yeesh.

    Just upped my pledge to add Susan and Sarah. This could get scary!

    Bad Squiddo Games: Onna Bugeisha and the Women of Feudal Japan

    Given she's in England, and has never been to Gen Con, I'm not sure how well that will work...
