Rabble Rouser (3/8)



  1. I finally got another mini painted and based! I'm especially pleased with how the base came out. I ended up using sand, glue and some Secret Weapon Realistic Water so it looks like he's running off a rock onto some wet stones (and crushing a wee tufted grass too). Paint wise, very happy with the red of the cape, first time doing such a red. Used tips from the Dark Sword DVD and just went crazy layering for a few hours. Also pleased with the face and eyes. It's difficult to see but the face looks pale and shadowy in all the right spots, and the Bette Davis eyes with just a white dot in the middle makes him look spooky. Next up: The High Elven wizard who strikes fear into all who behold him.
  2. I bought all the Reaper L2PK's and have completed two. I've found them to be excellent value if they can teach an idiot like myself to make quite respectable looking miniatures. Wasn't there a confirmation from someone at Reaper a while back that Bones L2PK's were in the works for sometime after the second kickstarter? I might be wrong there, but I could have sworn it had already been flagged as a near inevitability.
  3. I can't afford that many add-ons without suddenly pursuing a life of high stakes crime. As opposed to your currently life of low stakes crime? Has a spreadsheet been posted for this one yet?
  4. I'm not seeing any kind of confirmation we can order more than one core set? Am I blind or is that not possible this time around?
  5. Good enough for me, I guess I'm going to be gaming until 3AM on Wednesday morning to crash the servers then. How convenient I have this week off!
  6. Apologies if this has already been answered, but does the timer count down correctly for us internationals? Or is it messed up due to my clock being a good 15 hours ahead of Reapers?
  7. Thanks folks! That's it! I didn't know how to ennunciate the problem, thank you. It was certainly a challenge! A lot of tiny details were a big step up from the L2PKs I've done so far, and I'm pretty happy with the result. Ultimately though, the verdict will come from the player I've painted her up for. But I have to do the rest of the party before I find out! So much work. I've got all the paints from the Kickstarter, L2PKs and a few extras (liner triad), but don't have a chestnut ink. Would you have any suggestions as to how I could recreate the ink? I'd definitely like to do a bit more on the shield and get that warmth in. Thanks, I'm very pleased with the little areas. There could be two things you're seeing on the sword, assuming it's not just a picture artifact. The sword has a little gold mixed into the paint all over, and a thin strip on the leading edge of the blade (the character is a paladin). There may also be some flock that you can see on the blade as I accidentally dropped the entire mini into my pot of flock :(
  8. 03441: Elliwyn Heatherlark, Gnome Bard Fairly happy with this, but the colours don't pop very well, certainly not as well as the worm. The metallic gold went on suuuuuper patchy too :( Used greenstuff, a sand/glue slurry and some cork on the base, then painted and used static glass and flock. Quite happy with the effect. I found meshing the built in broccoli to the rest of the base to be very challenging. I could have trimmed and cut the broccoli away, which I may try on my next mini, but the feet on this one are just so tiny it seemed like an impossible task to drill and pin them.
  9. I definitely took inspiration from yours!
  10. It is slightly lighter, just not nearly as wildly different as the photo shows. As it's destination is table top, the mouth is super plain, purple fading to brown with white teeth
  11. I did. I done painted it. Bit of basing work to be done, but nothing very exciting. Light is a bit blown out on top unfortunately, IRL it looks mostly like it does down at the bottom.
  12. Finally got these two to a place I'm happy with. A lot of them hasn't been highlighted, no bases, but I'm really sick of looking at them. I don't quite know why :( One day I anticipate I will go back and do more work on them. I think I might need to set a goal to ensure I get enough painting done. Two in more than two weeks is hardly reasonable considering the thousand+ minis I have to paint.
  13. What basing materials are you using and where are you purchasing them from? The minis you have based up look great, I gotta know your secrets!
  14. Finding someone that ships these internationally... I too would love to know. I don't really want to pay 4x the price of the needles to get them to me by going through my reshipper.
