    The King in Yellow

    Those worms are beautifully painted. Disgusting and beautiful. Good job.

    Both of those look good. I have one left that I have not yet painted. I am thinking of using the gem color technical paints from GW. Then hitting them with a series of washes.

    These look great. I have some of the metal ones and they don’t sell the effect nearly as well.
  4. I used to work in photo retail and we constantly had customers who noticed the differences in color between their prints and their monitors at home. Our Dlabs were balanced several times a day but noone balances their home monitors. Smart phones are even worse. They are almost all balanced toward the cooler end of the light spectrum. I always give the colors I see online alot of latitude.

    What triads to get?

    My go to triads are the tan skin triad, dark elf skin triad (mostly for metals), the dark skin triad, and the blood triad. I also end up using the liners pretty extensively.
  6. Paint properly stored can last a long while. Years ago one of my buddies and I split bunch of paints from a store that was clearing them out. They were a mix of GW and partha paints. I was at his house painting last month and was amazed to find a bunch of pots of those paints still in his collection. Those paints are at least 19 years old and were still liquid. Mine all dried up years ago. He is obviously better at caring for his paints.

    Happy Birthday Hibou

    Thanks for the birthday wishes.
  8. Has anybody tried brown or grey liner in an airbrush to prime Reaper bones?

    Wet Palette Screw ups

    Not sure if this helps anybody. I bought a cheap board scraper at the dollar store to use to flatten the parchment paper I use in my wet pallet. I turn it over a few times after I add water and use the scraper to push all air bubbles out to one side or the other. Pretty much eliminates the curling issue.

    Blood Red Skies

    The group I play bolt action with at a local store is starting to get into it. I haven’t got a chance to check it out yet. I noticed at the local gaming convention several of the historical gamers in my area where buying into it.

    Happy Birthday, Wren!!

    I am a little late to the post. I hope you had a great birthday and thanks for all you taught me about painting minis at that gencon class interrupted by a fire alarm.
  12. Reaper customer service has taken good care of me in the past. It’s part of why I have remained a consumer of their products since the late 90s.

    How to cover bases on these minis?

    I use oatey fixit stick to fill bases. It’s a plumbers putty. It has a rapid cure time so it’s not much use for sculpting but is prefect for the sort of jobs green stuff is too expensive for. A word of warning, you should wear some gloves with it as can irritate your skin.
  14. I got it with Reaper bones 2 or 3. Both of those shipped out in the summer if I remember correctly. So freezing is unlikely and I live in the same time zone as Reaper HQ so I doubt it traveled to me by air (where it could have frozen in the plane’s hold) A friend of mine suggested it might have a gel medium.
  15. I recently purchased reapers NMM gold triad to experiment with non metallic metal painting. Upon first applying the paint to my wet pallet I found it to have a slightly stringy consistency. It was really well shaken, so I don’t think this was the issue. I painted with it and was pleased with the results, so it may be the intended consistency.
