  1. Personally, I almost exclusively use nylon or taklon brushes puchased in bulk like mentioned above as I did not like any of the sable brushes I have tried. Diff'rent strokes and all that. When it comes to these bulk brushes, my experience is that there is little to no difference between "brands" once you learn to avoid the really cheapest ones. I find that almost all white nylon bruses I have used are of comparable quality, whatever the price. I do not believe that these are any different. Based on what I see on the KS I would agree that this is a simple private label-rebranding of said bulk purchases.

    Maledrakh's Nighvault: Zarbag's Gitz

    The Night Goblins Moonclan Grotz venture forth from their fungus-infested caves to do battle in the Nightvault. Being so small and weedy, they compensate by being many. There are nine of them, one more than the eight starter positions on the game board. So yeah, I went with the fungal theme... pic heavy, click if you dare!

    Reaper Bones 77407: Death Dog from the third Bones kickstarter. Currently available from the reaperminis.com webstore. Sculpted by Julie Guthrie. I made a bespoke 3Dprinted 45x30mm base for it. I went for a black dog with red demonic eyes for this.

    It might also be a draught that cools the plastic prematurely causing the curl. I had problems with that.or a combination level too low and a draught. I solved it by covering the machine with a box when printing.

    Maledrakh's 77116 Colossal Skeleton

    This one has been standing around, based in one form or another since the Bones 1 kickstarter back in 2013 or whenever it actually delivered. One of the few KS1 Undead Bones I had not painted yet. I had originally based it on a square movement tray thinking to make it as some sort of skeleton unit for Kings of War, but for some reason that no longer appealed to me when I dusted it off this time. It had actual cobwebs on. I finally settled on a bespoke 125mm by 90mm oval 3D printed base, and slapped some paint on it to get it done. lots of pics below

    Stargrind : Bounty Hunters. 28mm sci-fi miniatures

    Kickstarter is more than anything, a very powerful and inexpensive marketing tool. Cudos to all the small manufactureres that have discovered this and use it. Monoliths last one was even explicit about this. Nothing fishy, suspcet or "cough cough" about it at all. Having a low funding goal is a good way of making sure it makes it. The "kickstarter is only for creators who need funding to make their dream come true" idea is stubborn, but not actually true.

    Kickstarter failures and moral/financial choices.

    Thank you from me as well for the original post, odinsgrandson. Otto von Bismarck is quotes as saying "Laws are like sausages. It is best not to see them being made." I would hazard that the processess going on behind closed doors also in games or miniatures creation is much the same. Delays and FUBARS for any number of reasons are completely normal, but many of the vocal backers do not seem to understand this. The crowdfunding campaigns have let the public in to see glimpses of the processes, and the "help fund creating this" does in many cases give a sense of entitlement (to see or be a part of the process) to the backers. Based on this there is an aspect here you mention that I think enters into this more than ever, and that is the hostile toxicity many backers display in short order as soon as anything is not up to said backers standards, and that rapidly leads to toxic comment sections and negativity on social media. Especially since most of the public do not have any real knowledge of how businesses are run or such products are created, but do seem have alot of stongs beliefs about how things should be. It takes a special sort of thick skin to withstand hostile social media negativity, and I think most creative types might not have the thick skin nessecary. This in itself is a very good reason for many creators to clam up, especially when things start to go wrong, even if they in fact are completely honest and competent, good people.

    How to paint scars?

    On a typical reaper mini the eye and face is too small to show much of a scar. For a blinded eye, I would paint the eyesocket black and have a thin line going though it to represent the scar, alice copper style, maybe in dark red. then paint the eye itself with a light blueish white to show it is a blind eye. the healthy eye I would paint with black or dark brown and then two itty bitty white dots inside to represent the white of the eye. Or just leave it black. The main point is to have a contrasting colour between the good eye and the blinded eye.

    Maledrakh's Mudgullet the Froghemoth

    I think this might be the last post of the year. From the Bones 3 kickstarter: An excellent stand-in for a Great Unclean One or Daemon Prince of Nurgle; a not-Froghemoth, that has now been renamed "77581 Mudgullet" and is slated for release by Reaper this January. Picture heavy! Click if you dare!
