  2. Yes it is. I just got the space to paint again. I'm also now married, which was part of the silence. Had to adjust to the new life. We also wound up with two new cats added recent. Calico that looks more like a Tortie Tux and a standard black and white tux.

  3. Lady Flamehawke! Welcome back and a BIG congratulations!!! I've been wondering what happened to you. Do you still have Angus (wrong spelling, I know, but I don't recall the correct spelling). Here's a picture of what happened in my life since you've been gone

  5. Also did a quick speed paint of two statues. Not sure were the other column is at the moment, but this one was out while I was painting the angel of death so it got paint too. She fit very snuggly into that base. I'm debating whether or not she'll stay in it. The pair. Also the angel without the base.

  6. Alex is nervous about painting. He has very shaky hands, but he has expressed interest in it. THough he does have a great deal of knowledge and interest in fashion. He also has an eye for detail so like helping me out in that way. *Hugs wolf* I missed you too. *Lays out coffee and ice cream*

  7. Malak breathed the cold air and smiled. This day had been long coming. The journey to the Frozen City had been difficult, wizards of his like had difficulty procuring supplies in the so called civilized lands, even in the rough towns near Felstad. Still, goblins could adapt to any situation and this one was no different. The eclectic band he had managed to scrape together stood with him now on the outskirts of the ancient ruin, ready to stake their claim at the riches that lie within. His first in command was his apprentice Grubb a Weiben goblin from the Reaping lands to the south. After

  9. I'm introducing my husband to painting. Mostly by painting up minis to resemble his characters at times. I have 3 in front of me currently. Volunteeered at the shelter today

  10. Finished up one of my first bones 4 minis. The unnamed big brother to the bones 3 barbarian. He's a simple table top job, though I probably could have shaded a few details more. Like his bracelet. I used an ink wash too shade the fur of his cloak and loin cloth. It worked great except they are now both very shiny. I could tone them down with some matte sealer, bit I think I'm just going to declare them magical. Someone's grumpy today. here he is with his unfinished little brother. Little brother's weapons ate a bit mor floppy unfortunat

  12. So do I, I feel that a lot of the lack of communication is a result of him leaving and the position hasn't been properly filled. I do hope Reaper will get this up to par. I love their products, this forum and the community but communication is very important. The way things are going will prevent me from backing Bones V eventhough I know I want certain minis from that. I will wait for retail this time, until I will see some real answers to the questions concerning Tariff's/Trade War/Brexit consequences and risks and how this will be dealt with. He brou

  14. You can never know what you might get from a goblin. And, to be fair, if I was running Reaper then every day would be nothing but pain and suffering. Suffering's good, don't ya know. Builds character, which you can then use in an RPG. Also! ...*sipppp*...

  15. Hi! Welcome back, and congratulations. Sounds like a wonderful place. I've been to someplace like that; did not like, and so far have managed not to repeat the experience. RE: Reaper communication shenanigans--You need to let them know about it. Somebody started a thread here on the board; that's good, but too limited in scope. Has anybody brought it up on FB? I'm fairly sure that's a 'yes', but if not, it needs to be. Further, use FB and all the other social media outlets to organize a letter/email campaign. If they get a few thousand upset ema

  16. Well it's another road trip. SWMBO has an official function tomorrow so we are in Stockton tonight. For those not familiar with Stockton, Cal. it's a formerly prosperous community in the Central Valley with the largest inland port on the West Coast. It's now not just bankrupt but one of the most economically depressed areas of the state. Stocton was in the National News after the Housing Implosion becuse of the amount of copper theft being done to vacant properties under bank ownership. They are still suffering from the aftermath of this, with gutted out properties being sold for

  17. Thanks. I was not expecting to have my circumstances lead me to love, but its been great. I haven't worked at one before, but I did apply to one and to this one. Not same shelter as I moved, but this was fun. I mostly get to cuddle all the kitties and ache to bring a few of them home.

  18. No, I already addressed it some time back. It will either change or it won't. Usually I try to be quiet about my gripes because I try hard not to say negative things about Reaper openly.

  25. ReaperLive has ... a couple of things going for it (the ability to directly ask Ron and company questions, and have a chance of them being answered is one), but it is not, and should not be a replacement for somebody maintaining Reaper's social media - including the forums! - and keeping at least the basic news (new releases, changes to shipping, discontinued products/lines ..?) up to date. It's not like we're asking for much; we just want warning about things that would effect our decision making process.

  28. What Darsc said. I was there too, and there was some uncertainty up until shortly before PaizoCon (May 24-27) whether the paints would even be ready to demo there. I can provide pictures of nearly all of them, though, to help tide people over until they're available to purchase. Sorry they aren't the best, but I tried different light and background setups and this seemed to give pictures closest to the actual colors. Flesh tones: Pinks: Oranges: Reds: Yellows: Dark gre

  30. This was my free mini of the month I got from reaper, starting to luv the bones black as where I don't really care for the regular bones. I was also fun to paint a monster instead of my usual character mini's. Was also surprised how huge it actually was.

  31. well since never got around to posting last months work thought I'd post some recent stuff, but who know maybe post last month work if I get the time. With her as with my Kristianna work I wanted to tie it in with my "order of the red witches".

  32. They actually did it right with HD, in my opinion, except the timing of it was abysmal and threw people into an unexpected paint crisis two weeks before Reapercon and the closing of the pledge manager. This is a valid point. Most of my frustration stems from having to hunt around to find things out, having no idea what's going on, and discovering things after the fact. My frustration tends to be cumulative. It's like radiation exposure. With a low enough dose, spread out over enough time, I'm prolly cool with it. With too much dose too close together,

  33. Finished up with the oils. First application was the blues and reds. These were painted on in a blob in the center of the part to be tinted. Then a brush that is damp with white spirits was applied to blend the tint onto the surface. Next step was the greens and black. The green was used on the stone and the wood surfaces to imitate damp mossy areas. The black was used solely on the skeletons to simulate the discoloration of decay. The same process of using a brush damp with white spirits was used to blend the colors in place. Once all of the oils were dry, a was

  35. Short of everyone affected sending an email to them, this might be the only solution. As angry as we are about it all, does it really matter to Reaper? Do WE even matter? How they handle this will be the true test of who they really are, I suppose.

  37. Mmmm.... There's a lot of room for improvement... Sounds like something you'd get from a goblin. Free RPG day. Kinda debating whether I actually want to go down to the FLGS. I'm supposed to play in a Starfinder game at 5... Kinda feeling lazy. And like I should be studying more, and... probably less posting here too...

  38. This, and it disproportionately hits a large chunk of customers. $35 dollar mark to $40 mark isn't a big deal, especially when the $40 mark was already set for mini of the month. 35 euro to 40 euro, same percentage increase. Meanwhile, Canada just got completely boned, going from $35 to $75.

  39. That's why I suggested a letter, not a social media post. I don't know about Twitter, but FB is too easy to delete stuff that is... problematic. Harder to ignore letters.

  43. More than that, if you announce it in advance, you get people irritated (and probably vocal) when you make the announcement, possibly (as you say) irritated and vocal when you don't change your decision, and then irritated and vocal once more when you finally implement the new policy. This stretches out the bad feelings over time and amplifies the negative PR effect. Though I would announce discontinuations a bit in advance as @buglips*the*goblin suggested, and make an event of "Last chance to order N". (This has the advantage of increasing sales, probably, as well.)

  44. So I know I'm in the minority here, but I don't blame Reaper for not announcing bad news in advance. If they anmounce it in advance many will object about the news and will complain again when Reaper does not change the decision in spite of the opposition from fans and customers. If they don't announce in advance then many fans and customers (maybe the same, maybe others) will object to the change and complain about the lack of communication. I dont see that either strategy is more success oriented for the company. I think I would deliver the bad news when I had to and move on, focusing on com

  47. I received an email from ThinkGeek saying they were having a 50% off "Moving Sale" on everything. I did a quick scan of the site and there was a notice up to cash in your bonus points [earned by buying stuff] as the program would be ending soon. I have a general sense that they are making some major business changes, part of which will be a new website. Either that or this is the "fire sale" to blow everything out before they close up shop.
