To be honest, I've long been puzzled about whether a die roll of "0, 00" is 100 or 0 as well. I've just been too embarrassed to actually ask anyone.  :unsure:

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

 

The answer is in your base rulebook, or it should be. Somewhere in that book, right about where it defines the abbreviation "D%",  it ought to say: "percentile dice are 1-100" or "percentile dice are "0-99".

 

 

In my gaming groups we've always treated "0" on the dice face to be 10... ie 1-10 (but only when "00" is rolled on the other dice).  That makes "0" "00" = 100.

Different groups might do it differently....

 

ED: in the single case of when we roll "0" & "00"... not for any other case....

Interesting.

 

So if they roll up "0" and "90" (10 and 90) what do you read that as?

Ops said round wrong way... in the single case of "00" & "0" being rolled at the same time this is treated as 100

 

when "0" "00" is rolled = 100

 

when "1" "00" is rolled = 001

 

"0" "90" = 90....

 

"1" "10" = 11

 

etc....

This is how we have always done it.

Due to some unfortunate turn of events (that turned out to be quite fortunate in the end) I now own 3x Raphael #1, 3x Raphael #0 and 1x Raphael #3/0. 

 

Basically, this Field Trooper kept buying the dmnn brushes because they failed to show up, and then got them ALL  :devil:

 

And I am loving them. TBH, since I tried them I haven't used the fancy W&N S7; I just love the snap on the Raphs!

 

It is a case of France beating England? I don't know.  :blues:

 

Addendum: I also acquired a Raphael 2/0 brush, which arrived just after the nick of time (the day that we moved), and had to chase me over to Washington. It's still all wrapped up, since I can't do anything with it until after I've unearthed the boxes that have my minis and painting stuff.  :down:

I like the feel of Raphaels a lot. I just find that they wear out on me pretty quickly.

Zorro: Check.

VanHelsing, Scurvy Dog, Graveyard Vignette Base: Check.

 

Today should see the delivery of my Spaceship Superstar minis, and hopefully the base they'll be going on.

I had a nightmare last night that my winsor and newton size 1 bristles all fell out.

 

My size 3 has bristles falling out of it slowly for some reason already, so it's my worst nightmare for this to happen to my 1.

SCORE! Got a Galleon for 50% off, just because the box was severely damaged. The colossal is intact, however.

I already ditched the box!

 

You'll see pictures when I enter it in the Year of the Giants! And Probably in my WIP thread!

 

Why am I shouting!?!

      Here's my take on this cute little guy. I tried to do more glazes on him than the way I normally paint, and his eyes are violet, which I think came out ok. Wishing I'd been able to get the huge mold line off his head but oh well. He's still adorbs.

      I hadn't even realized when I began on these three that they were all from the "Castle Stoneskull" expansion from Bones III.  It was a great set for adding to the random encounters for an RPG.

      These guys may represent some of the high-level dangers that one could encounter while dungeoneering in Castle Stoneskull!


       
       
      The Behir.  I've been wanting one since a buddy pulled one from the first Huge set of D&D prepaints.  They even show up in Pathfinder's "Reign of Winter" and D&D 5E's "Storm King's Thunder", if only I had had this guy in time for those campaigns!
       

       
       
      Brain-in-a-Jar.  While I was hoping this would be a human brain, it's still a really cool design.  I wonder why the legs are traditional bendy bones instead of the hard plastic that makes up the rest of the mini (minus the squishy brain), though.
       


      The mighty Minotaur!  Bones has a lot of representations for Minotaurs now, almost as many as Orcs or Goblins.  There's the one from pre-Kickstarter, 2 adventurers in Bones II, and the whole set of Minitaurs coming in Bones IV!  Plus all the Beastmen if you want to count them, I've seen them used as medium Minotaur PCs enough times.

      This guy is my favorite, though.  Must be the Gladiator armor.

      This is Kassata Lewynn, sculpted by Julie Guthrie.  The base is resin, from Celtic Ruins pack BRCE0043, by Scibor Miniatures.
       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      I love this sculpt and I love the way she turned out.  However, I had a lot of little problems that surprised me when painting her. 
       
      Somehow I managed to drop her at least five times while working on her.  I had to put a sheet of foam under where I was working to prevent further damage.  This has not happened to me before, so it was quite frustrating.  Each time, there were little white dings in the paint in the middle of spots where I was blending that required multiple layers re-painted to fix the damage.  I think I found and fixed most of them. 
       
      As I was painting her hair, the paint started drying in a completely different way.  It started snowing, so maybe it was the change in weather.  When I did the brown layer, the paint flowed very smoothly.  Part way through painting the first highlight layer, the paint started drying almost immediately.  I am using a #3 Raphael 8404, and it would dry out to the point of no paint flowing within a few seconds.  None of the usual tricks seemed to work (more thinning, flow aid).  It ended up being almost dry brushing, which is why the highlights in her hair look so chalky. 
       
      I noticed a tiny dark spot on her left collar and thought I had dabbed black paint by mistake.  I blended the brown over it several times and it just wouldn't cover over.  Then I figured it out -- there was a hole in her collar all the way through to her shoulder.  A lot of the paint I was applying to cover what I thought was a spot of dark paint was actually wicking through the collar and coming out on the underside.  You can see the dark spot in the top picture right below her chin. It could have been fixed with a spot of glaze but I decided to leave it.  Maybe she had a near miss with an arrow at some point.  
       
      Her face turned out to be exceptionally difficult for me to paint.  Her eyes have sculpted texture that I found made it very difficult for me to place the irises.  That's why the eye placement looks a little off.  Plus, I somehow managed to paint slightly triangular blobs with narrow point upwards instead of circles.  That is contributing to her slightly cross-eyed appearance.  If I paint this miniature again in future, I will probably try to smooth the surfaces of the eyes to make it easier to make them symmetrical.  Her lips also have a shape that I found very challenging.  There are cute little dimples at each corner of her mouth which give her a nice smile.  I found that if I had the paint thinned enough to paint her lips, the paint was also thin enough to immediately wick into these dimples, which significantly magnified the apparent size of her mouth.  I tried repeatedly to paint her lips smoothly, but I had to paint it over and start again each time.  I originally started with a less bright red for her lips, keeping in with the overall milder colour scheme, but the darker red didn't flow into the dimples so that's what she has.  Correcting this each time had an impact on the blending of the flesh tones on her face, which is why there looks like there is a sharp brush line down the middle of her right cheek.  That's where I gave up trying to fix the blending.  I think if I did this miniature again, I would paint the shade tone of the flesh colour into the dimples, and then fill them in with glazing medium.  That way I might still get the nice smile, but not have to fight with the wicking effect on the lip colour.  I also misjudged the overall skin tone.  I used the Reaper fair skin triad with a very slight darkening of the fair skin shadow as the darkest shade and brightened the fair skin highlight with white.  I think the whole series turned out to be too light and as a result there doesn't appear to be much shape to her face when viewed from a distance.  I should have started with a darker shade overall, maybe by adding a mid-range brown to the darkest shade colours for her skin to increase the contrast. 
       
      I created the gem on her right bracer by filling in the rune shape that was there with glaze.  I like the way the gem turned out and the colour, but I shouldn't have outlined the gem shape with black.  I think I should probably used the a darker version of the shade colour I used on the bracer, which was a mixture of nightshade purple and bronzed shadow (from the bronzed flesh triad).  The gem would have still been nicely framed, but the black is just too stark and didn't turn out very smooth.  It might look better if I had been able to make the black margin narrower and rounder. 
       
      Anyway, if anyone has any feedback to share about this model, I would love to hear it. 
       
      Thanks,
       
      Geoff

      Here's my final batch of new painted figures.
      Bones Giant Centipedes.  A staple encounter for low-level adventurers.
      Still inspired by Reign of Winter.  Sadly, Mr. Red got into the snow of Mr. Blue's base!
      Enjoy.
      C&C Welcome.
