  1. Thanks all :-) Here's some slow progress... been fighting all week long with the little lights... It's still not 100% of what I'm trying to achieve, but I'll get there some dy. I'm also still trying some things with the carapace on his back. I hope further progress will give me a better idea...
  2. some small and slow progress... I'm getting more and more an idea where I'm heading to colorwise... Not so purple in the end though I'm afraid, more green and red and some blue...
  3. trying out some colours... It'll be someway going purple / blue / green I guess. The blue is just some sort of basecoat (slightly watered down Citadel foundation Necron Abyss), it does leave a pretty shiny result which not all of my paints seem to dull once painted over... but I'll find my may though I'm sure.
  4. It's been a while since I painted some Reaper mini's... but now that this little sweetheart crawled upon my doorstep, I really couldn't resist assembling him hoping to start painting soon. It'll be a little longer than 7 days I'm sure, and I have to hide him from my 3-year-old daughter... (to avoid her having nightmares)... but I'm glad I can finally start :-) It's also gonna be the first Bones fig I'm painting... and I'm pretty excited to try it out :-) Btw, compliments to the creators of this figure, what a lovely sculpt and concept!!
  5. Nice start and great to see the progress pics. Especially glad you posted a pic with only the liner applied... Now that I understand it's 'thickness' a bit better I may go look for some aswell :-) How many bottles will you need for Ma'al, or is it sold in buckets? ;-)
  6. I once worked with a self-made wet palette and the paper never stayed flat, so I gave up pretty quickly (probably my selfmade palette was just ... rubbish...). Now I recently came across a forum-thread on Beasts of War where I read an announcement about an upcoming wet-palette kickstarter at the end of this month.. with reusable membrane. http://www.redgrassgames.com/ Might be worth keeping an eye on it... I still have my doubts though, but I may give it a go...
  7. Live

    Some more stretchgoals have been added... Now.. don't hesitate... (all can be swapped into points to pick the mini's of your own choice, including the entire Deepwars and Shadowsea range)
  8. Yay! It's ready to pick up at my local post-office! Shipped on august 20th Stayed 6 days from Aug 27th to Sept 3rd at the customs-clearance-status.. (sweet, did they already remove the moldinglines then?)... € 34.34 to pay in Belgium Can't wait to pick it up and unpack the madness...
  9. Fantastic use of Sugar! Great idea and nice and subtle conversion! If I was the big bad wolf... oh boy... She'd better run! :P

  11. Lovely! The shirt looks very realistic I think, aswell as the trousers, love it! Very nice job on the eyes and the watch aswell!
  12. The amount of excitement doesn't help indeed. I'm not much bothered about their communication, we had an update a week ago and somewhere I expect we'll get another one soon... (although they could have explained the reasons a little more in detail, so we could actually have a chance to understand what's taking so long) But what buggers me most of all is that US-orders went out at a speed of 14000 orders in about three weeks, while rest of the world takes three weeks for about 1500 orders... US-customers were important enough to make a max crew work non-stop to get the orders out as fast as possible. As soon as the ROW-orders started, this as-fast-as-possible-statement didn't matter anymore... Of course, "unfortunately those figures don't package themselves and we have a factory to run", I can understand that... but I don't see why this makes sense though, they had to be packed for US-customers aswell... (or not?). Now it's more important to run the factory then finishing the row-orders while earlier it was like "sorry, we won't have to time reply, we're kinda busy right now". I'm not saying they do this on purpose, but it leaves me with a feeling that we are not important enough to keep as potential customers, as if ROW is more like a burden to them at this moment or as if... it's only ROW... you know... the bloodbags who consume oxygen at the other side of the ocean... I've ordered directly from them in the past and was really happy with their service. But this kickstarter-service turned into a huge disappointment last three weeks, and if these bones would have been my first Reaper-mini's, it'd probably be the last aswell. There's still a lot of candy in their shop that I'd love to buy, and some of their sculpters have been added to my list of favorite artists so I hope I will still feel like buying their work, but they're getting really close to convince me that rest of world really is more of a burden to them, so why should I care to buy miniatures of them in the future if I'm nothing more then a burden? If my order isn't important enough to them, then I won't bother them anymore buying something. I'm not saying that's what it is, it's what they make me feel right now, and I'm sure I'm not the only one. They're losing potential future international customers here, and the longer it takes, the more it makes me think, the worse it gets. I still hope the exitement of opening the box of bones, if it ever comes, will erase all the negativity.
  13. Fantastic work and what a great tutorial! I especially like the way you build up your armature! The end-result looks so perfect! Well done!
  14. Jaysus! i can't do any of those things. I'm going to shoot myself now:) I didn't say a good, great or awesome painter can't do an outstanding paintjob though ;-)
  15. To me, an outstanding painter is someone who I can learn something new from, so that could be just anyone... :-) But based on painting-skills, the most outstanding painter would be someone who masters the combination of perfect techniques to do flawless skin with wicked tattoos and make-up, smooth cristal NMM-blades and unique expensive gold and silverworks, transculent shiny glassbottles filled with different powders and liquids, colorfull pearls and gemstones, perfect OSL, clothes that obviously look like certain fabrics with exceptional freehand artworks on them, someone who can perfectly paint the differences between night and daytime or summer and wintertime or good and evil colorpallettes, and cover this all under a lovely sheer or wet multicolor-freehand-artwork-cloth. Those who can make you forget there's actually solid metal, plastic or resin under the paint... Another category of 'the' outstanding painters is imo for those who have created a personal style so when you come accross a mini of them, you know immediately it's theirs without seeing their name or logo.
