    03298: Spirits

    See, I wouldn't have thought splattered. Before I read your commentary, my first thoughts were "ooh, cool color choices, very unique, eldritch. Nice transitioning. I like the glow, and the unusual lighting effect" So, go with it. To the rest of us, they look great :)

    Bones Kickstarter #2 Discussion

    It's deja vu all over again, isn't it? Only this time I don't have to spend several days being converted to Bones. I come preconverted this time, and eager! When I left for work this morning, the Kickstarter and this post were at 0. I got home around noonish. I blacked out for a bit, and maybe hit some buttons or something, and apparently I'm in for wave 3. *stares at the five thousand unpainted minis* Help. Sure, I'll help enable. Happy to. You're pretty cute, for an eight-legged bloodsucking carnivore. See, the secret is that you need to pledge more. Then it'll all be better. You'll feel good. Some endorphines will release. A nice glowy buzz. Then you won't worry about the unpainted ones, because all you'll see are the new ones. And that'll be groovy, baby. Real groovy. You are the wrong kind of help. It's so bad, but it feels so good.

    White hair with warm shadows

    I would start with Linen White as a base, which is a warmer off white, then highlight generously with Pure White, shade with Golden Blonde, and maybe the thinnest line of brown liner, or Walnut Brown as a shadow, in the deepest recesses. Or, I'd probably mix a touch of one of those with the golden blonde, to get the deepest shading. But I'd be super careful with the brown, and use it *very* sparingly, so as not to muddy the purest white. For myself, I'd have gradients of Pure White and Linen White mixed, ending with the final highlight at Pure White only, and same with the Linen White and Golden Blonde, I'd step it down gradually.

    TEST BADGES: Hello fellow Kickstarters

    I'm one of the cool kids!
  8. From the same genre, I'll also mention James Marsters, who does a brilliant job with The Dresden Files. Oh yeah, great narrators, and I've got a voice crush on Marsters. I also like Kate Reading Simon Vance, and Anne Flosnik a lot. At first Anne Flosnik got under my skin, but after listening to the whole Kushiel's Legacy series, I have to say, I love her style. I like Davina Porter, too. George Guidall, too, rubbed me the wrong way at first, but his voice is kind of addicting. I did notice that the narration on these D&D books was a little, erm, generic, but I'm happy they're doing it.

    Dresden Files/The Hollows Casting Call

    Great. Now I want to paint them too. Sooo many projects! Here's my vote for Molly, since we're converting. I'd take out that gun, and put in a wand, or some kind of spell effect, I'm thinking of her "portable rave" with a little explosion or something, if it's doable. She's kinda edgy, and I love the pose of this piece. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Chronoscope/sku-down/50024#detail/50024_candy_front_1_lj

    Dresden Files/The Hollows Casting Call

    I like this guy for Butters, too http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Chronoscope/sku-down/50202 If this guy could be modded, the coat and hat are perfectly Dresden. I'd have to shave off some of that hair, and put a rod and staff in his hands. http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Chronoscope/sku-down/50189

    Dresden Files/The Hollows Casting Call

    Nathan Fillon as Dresden, period. I'll think harder on the rest, and edit as I come up with them. Edit: Damn, using Reaper minis. Alright, I'll go look for a Nathan Fillon look alike.
  12. I had a friend that called scimitars "skim-tars" so, I feels ya. I really do. We used to play a lot o Magic: The Gathering, and he always had SKIM-TARS in his decks. ALWAYS with the damn skim-tars.
  13. HAHAHA omg. I know some people that might even listen to that... I mean, not me of course, er. I'm still laughing at glaive-guisarme. Well, at least I'd know how to pronounce it.
  14. Audiobooks are a little more expensive, but I subscribe to the site, and get credits, discounts, and sales each month, makes it a little more affordable.
  15. I'd imagine it would be a lot of futzing around with fast forward and rewind, haha. "Move to 11 minutes and 39 seconds if you choose to go in the cave. Move to 14 minutes an 45 seconds if you choose to explore around the outside."
