    Help with Pooh based ”Crooh” for Ghost Archipelago

    Eureka makes Kagaroos and crew for the Kangaroo APC crew. Nothing useful, it seems.

    Anyone else digging the new Oathmark plastics as much as I am

    That seems like an odd box to do. Metal wizards and plastic henchmen seemed quite natural. Could be really good for those that want to put together the perfect wizard mini for their PC, I guess.
  3. Now you just need to stick a stone age warrior into the glue before it hardens...

    According to Wargames News and Terrain, the next Oathmark sets should be heavy dwarven infantry and goblin wolf riders. I'd be more excited about the first if I hadn't just received a box from Conqueror with some of their dwarves. Hopefully the wolf riders are great.
  5. Hmmm, from the title I thought you might be working on some glacial ice. Always interesting to see this kind of experiment.

    Bones Black Questions

    I think Ron talked about spray primer in one of the Reaper live videos on YouTube.

    Huh, I'm going to be out of town for all of February. In my defense, what are the chances that a large KS would deliver exactly on time?

    Tips for small scale basing

    To mount my 10mm figures on their unit bases, I used texture medium mixed with some brown paint. That should be faster than gluing, then texturing then painting. After that I'd put on some flock and maybe some of the smaller tufts and/or static grass you can find. Small bits of clump foliage could be used for bushes.

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    Well, I ordered an 105, a hose and a quick attach. Never did request or receive an email so we'll see I guess. Anyone want to recommend a holder and/or a spray receptacle?

    Advice for Choosing a Detail Airbrush

    I must be doing something wrong. I went to the badger website and instead of finding a ling to sign up for their email I found that their special offers link led right to a list of airbrushes listed at $55. [edit] With all the prices at $55 is there something that people would recommend over a Patriot for general use on minis?

    Trying to get back to painting miniatures

    I'd say keep things simple. For gaming pieces there is a lot to be said for a clean, smooth base coat and a wash.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Had an interesting holiday. My Mom fell down some stairs. Enough stairs that the medics that came to get her suggested that she go to a hospital with a trauma center instead of the local one. And that she go by helicopter. Not exactly what you want to hear. In the event, all the tests showed that she had a broken wrist and a quite large goose egg on her forehead, i.e. what we already knew and the best possible news. Her wrist broken badly enough that they had to do surgery the next day since they couldn't get it into shape for a temporary splint. That's all done and she was a real trooper. The worst part was that, while she was admitted to the hospital, I can't be in charge of her Parkinson's meds. We'll have to watch her very closely while her arm mends itself but it really could have been at lot worse. Now I have to work out how to get some painting done while in the house as opposed to my garage work space.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I was chastising my past self for letting reasons like "I already have bones dragons and haven't painted them." getting in the way of a higher rule like "The fact that Julie Guthrie has sculpted a dragon is reason enough to add it to the pledge" and, in particular, how that rule should have been applied double to Dance of Death. Further I started to worry that I didn't get Blacksting and that nice bit of ruins he comes with. So I checked the pledge manager and found out that I have both coming! Past me is off the hook for at least today.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    Well potatoes do grow a large number of eyes if you leave them in dark, dank places...
