"Spacey" Ships came today! + a couple of Pokemon cards I thought my daughter might like. Anyways can you tell what's wrong in this picture?

 

Space ships for ReaperCon

 

 

 

If you can't tell one of them has a severe lean-to due to the clear shaft is bent hard at the base & at the bottom of the ship. I've contacted the person I got these from to see if I can get anther one sent quickly.

The idea that all ships would be at the same orientation in space is a silly one. I say embrace the (likely) scientific truth!

I would but it's too off for me, not to mention the bend at the base is almost a break.

Acquired Treasure Hoard Vignette Base for my flamboyant rogue.

 

He looks like he is peering at something, and he's top heavy. A base will be good for him and I wanted him to stare at treasure. This seemed perfect!

Acquired: my RAFM order of Reaper paints!

 

Unfortunately, the one I was really waiting for (Mint Green) ended up not appearing in the box (nor was I charged for it, since it didn't show up on the shipping notice).

 

Also, I has a sad. One of the paints I'd ordered was Bruise Purple, which I didn't realize was out of production until it arrived and had the old style label. It was...quite thick. Like artist paints thick when I squeezed some out. I did my level best to resurrect it, but even though I thinned it aggressively (using water, flow improver and wash medium), by the time it got to a workable consistency, the pigment was too diluted to be any good. I painted a section of one of my palettes with it, and it was just not usable.

 

I might have to order two random new purples from Reaper to soothe the disappointment (and also my sore arms, because I spent over 20 minutes thinning and mixing and shaking the blasted thing :zombie:). Oh darn.

 

Huzzah!

Aw... that really... yeah...

 

Faded Purple(the highlight to Bruise Purple was one of those I got refunded after ordering.

(Keeping fingers crossed and hoping that Dusky Grape and Bruise Purple are viable)

You popped off the top and stirred it?  I've had paints that release a paint snake from the tip, but are okay or recoverable inside the bottle.

 

This made me check that old triad and they look okay, so I must have added water at some point.  Neglected paints make me sad.
