  1. The War Colour metallics are also very nice. Also a company named Darkstar makes a set called Molten Metals. They are also very nice. I've brought both with me to ReaperCon each year but no one seemed interested in them ....
  2. Someone mentioned different sized collets to hold your drill bits, cutters, grinders, etc. What I got what the Dremel part that gives you a keyless chuck that you can size up and down easily by turning it. That way you never need to change out the collet and it is very easy to change your tool of choice. Essentially the 4486 keyless chuck attachment is what you would be looking for.
  3. The shaft attachment is a great thing to have. That way you aren't holding onto the large unit while trying to work on a tiny figure. Also, highest speeds on metal causes the metal to melt, not grind or cut away. So while you might think highest speeds are the way to go, slower and steady is far better.
  4. Reaper layer up learn to paint kit?

    I'll 2nd what a quality brush can do for you. I was quite surprised how much my "craft" brushes were holding me back on doing details. They have a role, but a good kolinsky is incredible and will last a long time if taken care of!
  5. Paint Track Apps?

    Was a February special I believe.
  6. ReaperCon 2018 Hotel Booking Link

    I'd call the hotel and ask if you can add Wednesday also. Can't hurt, they can only say no. Maybe tell them others going were able to get Wednesday also.
  7. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    If I make it down my wife is also coming and she is not a painter. Though she said she'd like to take a beginners class. She'll be happy relaxing with warm weather and such I am sure also. And visiting with people. And she can see first hand if people like her cookies this year I suppose!
  8. Bloodbite Goblin Painting Guide

    Please tell Anne great work on the tutorial!
  9. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    I just handed my stickers to someone else.
  10. Clippers?

    I finally broke down and purchased a good set of these and have had no regrets since. And edited to say these are hardened and designed to cut through anything!
  11. Hope Anne does a painting document like the others. They look great!
  12. Darkswords Masterworks G.R.R.Martin

    Also, this is not going to be a Kick Starter. So not sure the discussion belongs here?
  13. Darkswords Masterworks G.R.R.Martin

    I am pretty certain that GRRM sees dragons AS the ones on the HBO show. So no front legs and "wyvern" like.
  14. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Trying to. But it's leaning towards not pretty heavily.
  15. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    At least you know you will be there!
  16. That will be a lively birthday cake!
  17. Trouble with washes - Newbie painter

    The nice part about the price of Bones figures is you can keep trying techniques out on them and they are not that expensive. Just base coat a figure and then practice applying a wash. You can then always strip it and do it all over again or just grab another one and try again. You'll get the hang of it soon I am sure. I know washes were hit or miss for me until after doing a bunch and then something just clicked. Seems like any technique is like this for me. Just keep at it!
  18. Neverland's Legacy

    I just did the $1 pledge level and then put in enough for the 4 sets.
  19. GNL Mats by GameNightLife

    In the same boat here along with 40ish hex parchment tiles. And I paid to have the square shipped now as opposed to waiting for the hex. So I expected to have the 40 square in hand by now or at least info about shipping!
  20. Neverland's Legacy

    Well mixed feelings. I received 2 boxes of figures today. One was the 20 no-duplicate Sherwood Legacy 20 figures. The other was 15 of the same (short 5). What I had pledged for was the 20 no-dup, the 12 Neverland Legacy, the 34 alternate Albion, and the 7 King's Journey figures. So I didn't get 3 sets and got 15 duplicates of the set of 20. So not sure what to think, but I did send off an email and just wanted to put an update here. I didn't pledge for the game at all.
  21. And there is no way Reaper can package the whole KS release to ship them all at once.
  22. Magnifying products for painting

    Optivisor for the win. Only way I would paint. Great lenses, both eyes, makes painting far easier with good light sources.
  23. ReaperCon 2018 Hotel Booking Link

    Looking forward to seeing the remaining info on the con with the changes. One thing I have noticed on the rate different from the Hilton Garden is that we can get the same rate before and after the “con” dates. Where they would not give it.

    You just want the big meat ribbon!
  25. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    Being optimistic and also booked my room. Mrs Harrek wants to go this year also. Keeping fingers crossed.
