  1. Fulfilling

    Kinda bummed there are no new box inserts for the upgrade packs.
  2. Fulfilling

    On the truck today. Gotta clear the table for a 1.5 session!
  3. Yup. It bonds physically, so as long as the weight of the mini isn't too much for the size of the joint, it's fine. I bought a ton of the small face bases in the first KS, PM me your address. I'll get you started.
  4. Fulfilling

    I did the same when I got mine from the first KS! And let's not talk about sprues. 2 original core games, all expansions, plus the survivor KS reward box...I don't even want to think about how much more is incoming. Heck, my 2nd core box is still shrink-wrapped!
  5. This semester, rather than block in values in harsh extremes, we developed a grisaille. For this we used titanium white and raw umber, thinned with oil and gamsol. About two hours, goes much faster when I don't have to consider hue or chroma.
  6. Check here for my first year of drawing and painting, 2016: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/66657-cashs-2016-art/ Onward with year two! First up is a sketchbook piece, 5.5x8.5 graphite. I'll probably keep posting stuff as digest, I dunno. Just winging it! And a study from the studio today, 18x24 charcoal on newsprint (my usual):
  7. Figure drawing, had the model from portrait class sitting last night. 20 minute pose. Vine charcoal on drawing paper, 18×24 NSFW (nudity) https://i1.wp.com/cashwiley.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/Lyf_3.jpg 30 minute pose. Vine and compressed charcoal on newsprint, 18×24.
  8. Fulfilling

    My estimate bumped from Saturday to Monday. I'm extremely spoiled by Amazon Prime, especially now with Sunday and holiday delivery. Kinda freaked me out to see a USPS truck pull up when I was in the driveway working on the truck on Indigenous Peoples Day! I'm not fussed about the wait, never am with KD. Always worth it. Looking forward to starting up my old game, I've been waiting for the revision to restart. Should probably paint the other three survivors :D In the meantime, Elex just came out and is awesome, so I'm all good. I should also build the Butcher since he's up soon. And the antelope...yeah time to get the glue out...
  9. Hasslefree, Kev has some really amazing pieces. Depending on accuracy needed, USAriadna forces from Infinity have some cool models.
  10. Starting the next portrait:
  11. Thanks, Shogun! Unfortunately minis are going to be few and far between for a while as I focus on traditional arts (I'm actually selling off a lot of my collection on FB). But I don't plan on giving it up entirely and will try to make time to sneak a few in, especially for games I actually play!

  13. Funded

    Just got in my shipment, 3 tomb spiders, dragonshield Angedern, replacement Aetulla and 5 of the drinking companions. So amazing, but I'm winding down mini purchases to focus on education. Going to clear out non-collectibles sometime soon, though a lot of Mierce stuff is stay right where the heck it is, since one assumes the exchange rate might recover for the Imperials at some point.
  14. Thanks, everyone! Like the Zombicide stuff, these are fun sculpts to paint. Though I may get a bit tired of the metal bosses on every model at some point! Mattnuke, highly probably! Some really characterful big guys (and gals) in there!
  15. I've updated the blog with a couple figure drawing posts, which I'll link due to the forum's policy on nudity. http://cashwiley.com/2017/09/croquis-cafe-figure-drawing/ http://cashwiley.com/2017/09/figure-drawing-3/
  16. completed

    There's a reason the first guys I painted were the agents...devious mechanic!
  17. Well, I like the game a lot, so I figured I may as well start painting it up. Been a while since I've painted minis, and I had a few days off and just kinda got sucked into it. Mostly quick tabletop stuff here, though it took me longer than it should've because I was struggling to remember how to paint! Consistencies were all over the place, and when it came time to do the NMM, I drew a blank. I remembered some of the tricks, and spent a little extra time blending the blades (which turned out pretty decent for TT if I do say so). Glad you guys like them, pretty primitive but it was fun and I really would like to get the set painted up at some point! Additional color notes: neutral grey triad for steel, gold nmm triad for the gold. My first time using the nmm triad, and for a real paintjob I'd definitely go above and below it, but that's the case for every triad. For a quick n dirty, it's a great triad!
  18. Off to Show Off:
  19. Tried zenithal priming these guys with an airbrush…results about the same as a rattle can, with way more cleanup. Don’t really want to spend any time learning airbrush skills, so be it. Massive Darkness Agents WIP 1 I then base coated the skin for each as follows: Orc, Twilight Blue; Dwarf, Dark Skin; Goblin, mix of Ghoul Skin and Black Green. Leather, skirts and misc were base coated in Dusky Skin Shadow. Massive Darkness Agents WIP 2
  20. Corporea, are you familiar with the Munsell notation? I'm still mostly working in graphite and charcoal, so I haven't dug too deeply into color. But it's set up to account for the relative values of different color, and there's some good lessons out there on using it for bracketing and mixing colors to control all three axes. http://munsell.com/about-munsell-color/how-color-notation-works/
  21. To shade the secondary and tertiary colors. And possibly to add some depth to that much unrelenting black. I'm thinking of my go-to Nightshade Purple, which would work well as an all-around shader and enhancer. Hypothetically speaking.
  22. Hypothetically speaking, if one had black as a primary color, would one be able to choose a new shading tone?
  23. Continuing with the skirts, I finished out the Dusky Skin triad, to keep things simple. Similarly, I did the same using Clotted and Carnage Reds to finish the hood/sashes. Massive Darkness Agents WIP 5
  24. On to the flesh tones. For the dwarf, I used Muddy Soil, Dark Skin, Redstone Highlight, Tanned Skin and VMC Ivory. For the goblin, it was Black Green, Ghoul Skin, Moldy Skin and VMC Ivory. For the orc, Midnight Blue, Twilight Blue, Snow Shadow and Ghost White. Massive Darkness Agents WIP 4
  25. Finishing up the basecoats. Metals based in Dusky Skin Shadow or Stormy Grey. Hood/scarf in Bloodstain Red, dwarf’s beard in Shadowed Stone. Massive Darkness Agents WIP 3
