Haha! I have aquired... my first Sophie! It should be here and primed in time for me to work on it on Saturday, no less!

 

It's the ReaperCon 2012 Pirate Sophie, btw. <3 :blush: And I'll be finishing up the Opium and Cherry Blossom Queens, too - I can't paint until then cause I caught a case of the carpals. :s

 

How bout you guys? What're you working on?

 I don't have a project at the moment - or, actually, I've got too many to pick one to work on, lol. For the paint day I may put in some more work on the conversion I was doing the last time... I don't actually have a plan, really.

Looks like I can make it to paint day next week if I can acquire a ride.

I just got the OK from my wife to drive down, leaving from just north of Boston (Malden).  I can pick up people on the way.  PM me if you want to arrange details.

Yep.  I should be back from Purgatory (Norfolk) by then.  Debating bringing eldest spawn and her friend with me.  Both are interested in learning to paint minis.  Not sure if I'm up to the being locked in a car for a couple of hours with teenaged girls.

 

(No, Aard, that was not directed at you.)

Unfortunately, I will not be able to make it for March. I'll see about April, but that will depend on whether or not I am called upon to volunteer as a Pathfinder GM at PAX.

Does anyone else need a ride from the Boston Area?  I'll be starting in Malden and have room for 2 more comfortably and 3 if you're all real friendly.

It looks like I may not make it tomorrow, at least not for the whole time. My son has state finals for fencing tomorrow clear over on the othwer side of the state in New Haven. Depending on when we get back home I may pack up a few things to work on, or maybe just stop by to chat with everyone.

Had a great time!

 

Attending this time were:

Aard

MadJack

Fangaud

Falstius

Me and Minion #1

 

I actually finished something!  My daughters mini for her after school club; start to finish.  I also got some more work done on my Warlock for my game.  Minion #1 took to painting like a champ.  Knocked out an old school Owlbear that Aard gave her, and then painted my Bones stumpet.  I bought her a few minis of her own and some new paints for myself.  Soon, I'll have my own mini painting sweatshop!

I guess it would be cruel to point out that Aard could have gotten that Oriental Dragon after all with March's budget.

      Sounds like an interesting paint mixer. Not sure I'd get it myself, but some people on this forum might be interested...

      I haven't seen this posted anywhere else on the boards and did not find anything by searching, but RealmSmith has posted an interview from GAMA on YouTube with Ron and Ed. If this has already been posted, please feel free to nuke this post with extreme prejudice. As YouTube is a commercial site, no link but searching RealmSmith and Reaper will get you there.

      Ordered a reasonable amount of paints from an online store that carries Reaper here in Canada....  All of the other paints come across as normal, but this one....  Well, uhm...
       


       
      I'm going to venture a guess it's a goner, or can it be saved?  There isn't even a liquid sound when shaking the bottle, just the sound of the agitator stuck in the bottom moving around somewhat.

      After a poll this seems to be the best place to put this thread. For the most part I'll stick photos under spoilers because my phone likes to make them large.
       
      So I bought a sketchbook today with the intent to catalog and show off all of my paints. I thought it was quite the appropriate book to get.
       
      First I made a grid on a page. Then added the title to each column: Name & SKU, None, Base, Wash, Brown Liner, Blue Liner.
       
       
      That's as far as I've gotten. Next I plan on starting to fill out paint names and SKU's. Then I will prime the squares with some plain white brush on primer (Vallejo in this case). I'm really hoping that the paper is thick enough to avoid the water from just being absorbed. If it isn't I will go to the craft store and buy a better book with different paper and can use this for something else later. 
       
      Each column is a different thickness of paint/what I'll be putting it over. So None is straight out of the bottle, Base is thinned enough for a base coat, Wash is thinned down to a wash consistency, and Brown and Blue Liner will have each of them put over the primer and then a base consistency paint over that. 
       
      I'm going to spend some time filling out the names and SKU's and then I'll get to priming the squares. Might go back and go over the lines with a sharpie or pen to make them a little more apparent where the lines are for my sake. 
       
      ETA: I already have a spreadsheet of all of the paints I own and then sub-sheets broken down by line/company. I think there is a way to put color samples into the sheet but I've yet to figure it out. So I'm making this so I don't have to pull out all of my paints when I need to color scheme something. I can just pull out the book and go from there. It'll be much more efficient for me.

      I have been painting minis for a few years now and my paint collection has evolved quite a bit. I started with a few bottles of Tamiya paints
       



      Then I went into a KS called Paintdecor and got a goodly collection there, plus a few Vallejo paints as they are available retail here in Nagoya Japan, whereas Reaper is not. Got a couple Dwarvenforge paints around the same time also.

       
      Then I started to get more into Reaper, with a lot of buying, including a learn to paint kit and my collection expanded
       
       
      And just today I got a couple nice Vallejo paint racks so it looks a lot more organized
       

      I also have one of almost all the Dwarven Forge paints but not a good pic of them right now. They are off to the left in the third pic.
       
      And in a few weeks, I'll be getting another 35ish reaper paints I bought last year including the holiday bundle. 
       
      I will update with a pic of those when they arrive. 
       
      I know it is not a huge collection, but compared to its beginnings, it is a whole lot better. 
       
      Whatta ya got?
