  1. Underpaint the flesh areas with an olive green ( your choice of several in the RMS line), then apply the tanned flesh triad per usual. It was good enough for Rembrandt, its good enough for me.
  2. Hill Giant Brown, Bloodstone... and THE #1 must have - Gunmetal.
  3. That's what I've been using the brown rose for. A VERY minute amount added to the base skintone. Will test out the Rose Shadow in the near future and let you know.
  4. Andrea paints are bottled by Vallejo. 'Nuff said.
  5. How close are any of these going to be to VMC Brown Rose?
  6. Try adding them to each other, rather than trying to use each as a separate entity. For example; the distance between Palomino and Amber is a bit much for my painting style. Adding a small drop of Palomino to the Amber gives me something with less SHV difference, and by making more "smaller" color steps, I achieve a better result.
  7. Modify the existing Tanned Flesh Triad or Golden Flesh Triad with about a 15% blue biased gray. Would work well for undead and other bloodless creatures.
  8. Ok, I'll make it official, since I'm sure you can't find that piece of paper we wrote it down on. Equivalents for VMC Ochre Brown, Yellow Ochre, Green Ochre. At least 2, possibly 3 triads of true neutral gray gradients; 5%, 10%, 20%, 40%, 50%, 70%, 90% at a minimum. Equivalents to VMC Smoke, Woodgrain
  9. Current job: Mini painter and convention rep for various mini manufacturers. Dream Job: See above.
  10. Hey IMMPS! Stop on by Little Wars and say hello. I'll be the old geezer in the Croc booth.
  11. Base with Vallejo Oily Steel. Wash with Vallejo Smoke and/or Vallejo Woodgrain. Highlight with Vallejo Silver.
  12. Get Liquitex Interference Colors in the color of your choice. Prevailing uses are to apply either the same color as your basecolor or its compliment.
  13. ITEM: The half orc is an intelligent being, worthy of respect and dignity. ITEM: The half orc population is treated unfairly in matters of employment and equitable compensation for their labors. ITEM: The half orc population has no representation within the Government, nor does it receive equal justice under the law in the courts. ITEM: This unfair and repressive state of affairs is intolerable. BE IT KNOWN: We do hereby found and establish the Committee of Half Orc Rights and Equality to serve as the voice for the half orcs, and to pursue our rights by all legitimate means at our disposal.

  14. Can't speak for anyone else, but from my perspective it ain't about the skill level involved, it is about the willingness to participate and share in the hobby. Any fig I have ever received in this type of event, regardless of the paint job, goes in my special reserved case.
  15. And don't forget the minipainter list at Yahoo. 3300 people generate a LOT of links... Links Page - Minipainter
  16. Suck it up, spend money, buy Ott-Lite. You'll thank yourself. I keep my shop well lit with a variety of light sources, but for the direct lighting in my painting area, I want with Ott and will never even think of using anything else again.
  17. Sage advice? You answered your own question. "It takes awhile to work through her frustration, self depreciation/invalidation, followed by tears. By the end she is better and I promise to strip the figs for her to start over again." Being there, following through and staying the course. There is no advice more valuable than that.
  18. A young redhead goes into the doctor's office and says that her body hurts wherever she touches it. "Impossible," says the doctor. "Show me." The redhead takes her finger and pushes her elbow and screams in agony. She pushes her knee and screams, pushes her ankle and screams. Everywhere she touches makes her scream. The doctor says, "You're not really a redhead, are you?" "No, I'm really a blond." ”I thought so," the doctor says. "Your finger is broken."
  19. Around here (PA) most water line is 1/2" at the terminal end ( where it goes into your faucet, toilet, etc). Your local DIY joint such as Lowe's or Home Despot should be able to give you all the information you need as well as supply the right parts.
  20. Well, we'll just have to solve that problem next year! You can always try the speed paint or the painting comp again, or just stop by and do something interesting.
