    I looked for the swag bag on the site throughout the event but never saw it, was it not offered for non attendees this year?

    Undine cleric of Calestria

    Well I finally started painting again.
  4. I am playing in a pathfinder game as a tiny plant based character. The trouble is I am having a lot of trouble finding a suitable miniature for the game. The character is female and well tiny being a foot tall huminoid plant. Anyone have any advice I have found one that might be suitable with modification but I want to see if anyone else would know of any. Potential is currently https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/familiars/sku-down/14087#detail/14087_Moth_lt the fairy holding the spell book would need to clip the wings.
  5. So I was petting one of my cats the other day and his hair was just coming off in fluffs, he is a heavy shedder. I got the idea about using cat hair in a paint brush. So I went to google and found, well very little. Cat hair is used in oriental paint brushes for "fine detail" according to a website called trueart.info. There is also a Ukrainian painting style that uses cat hair brushes almost exclusively. Now the question I have beyond could I actually make a decent brush is would a cat hair brush be suitable for miniature painting.

    Commission questions

    This might be the wrong board for this but. A friend has asked me how much I would charge to paint five miniatures, and I'm not quite sure what to tell him. Any advice on this?
  8. Alright I have been looking at a few minitures I am about to paint and I was wondering if it is generally better to paint before or after assembly. The miniture in question is the Malifaux Doppleganger.

    Alright I reworked the basic armor. Let me know what you think hopefully it is starting to look good. I think once I get more color on the miniature the glare will drop somewhat.

    Glitter is evil but I love the water effect.
  11. I wonder if it would work with the Citadel paint pots as well?

    That is great advice but one of the things that drew me to the anodized metal look was the interplay of colors. Similar to this image. This is from Mission Critical Tools http://www.bladehq.com/item--Mission-Critical-Tools-Chaos-Claw--10950 If I can figure out how to pull the mini off with the swirling interplay of colors then great otherwise I will go with the simulated anodizing sky earth nmm. I don't know how to fix the glare or give it top lighting since my setup is really rather bare bone right now one desk lamp and that's it. I will eventually add to that with something I can build a diffuser into, or see about getting used stuff the preivious owner is ready to let go of.

    bblythe84's consolidated wip thread

    Alright I have done her breast plate mostly as a benchmark for the technique that I am attempting to use the other parts of her armor likely won't have as many colors. I am using the titanium anodization color set for her armor which is supposed to be anodized. I need some feedback to see if I am getting it or if I need to improve something other than smoothing out the transitions which I am not quite sure how to do with this one. Any help and advice will be greatly appreciated. Also the mini is sideways because i don't really have a way to stand her upright without risking damaging her but other than that let me know if the photographs have improved any I know that has been an issue for me in the past.

    Well let's see here this isn't really part of the mini wips but it is a wip and I will be slowly improving the setup. Currently I am just laying my phone on it's side on the table and holding it there while I tap the shutter button. I am also going to need to see about what I can do about glare.

    Casiatta the anti palidin

    There have been many requests for better pictures of this mini so that they could have a better look at it I have done this to the best of my ability for now. I will be continuing to improve my photo setup. Also she needed post repair pics. I didn't really change anything other than patching her paint and removing the dead plant matter from her. Also there is a close up of her tattoo though I had a lot of trouble with that pic. Let me know what you think both of the mini and any improvements to the picture quality if there was any and I wasn't just deluding myself. (Never again will I take Mini Pictures when I have no time to do so.)
