  1. FFG, I seem to lose money on D&D and TOH1, but in no way blame you for any desicion and would like to thank you for your transparency. Allthough I'm getting more and more anxious in getting back my money (or getting miniatures) I see less and less chance of this. I wouldn't want to ruin Matt S. his life, bussiness or whatever, but at this moment my brain just want back the roughly $400 that I lost on this. If CSM was more transparent I would be more lenient. To be honest, the first RBG kickstarter also didn't work quite well, but Tre did a terrific job in being as open as possible and If I'm sorry I didn't use the money I spend on CSM on more of his miniatures :(
  2. I'm in the same boat. I also added on a Tsoggathua via PayPal. But, I did have KoED in my order. And I'm in the same boat as well. I did get the Add-ons I added post kickstarter, but not the $185 pledged for the Demons and Devils, KEO and few other bits. The package I did get though did leave a sour taste in my mouth as two big models were damaged (air bubles in the casts) and I had to pay a lot of taxes, which I'd probably have to pay for a 2nd packages as well. I don't even want to talk about my TOH1 pledge... I's almost hope that reaper would buy the sculpts and add everything to Bones III kickstarter (Not counting the CAV bones as #3), except that it would be shame for the loss of detail on some sculpts.
  3. one solid basecolour(spray) on the entire model, followed by basecoating, washing and drybrushing and that's about all I did. It works mainly due to the amount exaggerated detail :)
  4. I really like the look of the snow flock, it looks very natural. Also a stellar pant job!
  5. Thanks for the advice, I'll do that with the next update :)
  6. It's been a while since I posted due to RL interfering. did get around to painting a few models, though most of them are at the almost finished stage needing only the basing done and some varnish, so taking pictures didn't happen. Still I have a few left overs that I can post, just to get back into the habit :) I finished these almost a year ago, before our son got born. First a Gorebeast chariot in which I replaced one of the crew for Goldar: Then there was a quick paint Chimera, which took around two hours to get ready for tournament useage: Lastly a small block of trolls. I tried to give them the same paint scheme as the trolls I painted 20 years ago and failed miserably. As such I'm not to happy with the blue, but have enough other models to paint that I'm not going to redo them. Except maybe adding some dirt, mud etc, to make them less clean:
  7. A very well known feeling. Somehow miniaures also started getting more and more detailes, which didn't help either. The first "special characters" that I bought from Games Workshop were so more detailed and challening that I just didn't dare paint them, being afraid to don't do them justice. The still are precious even though I can easily tackle them now. It took me only 15+ years to get over that feeling and just don't care and go for it. To be honest, I still like models with less trinkets more than the ones with them. Even though I care much less now, I would still not easily do a quick paint job on metal or resin miniature, while with plastic or bones I care less :)
  8. Great news, especially if there will be more big guys in the mix :) I was very happy with all the (N)PC's, but they are probably way more then I ever need and honestly in twenty+ years i already collected a -BEEP-load of them. Though I'm still missing a Buglips. Or should Buglips be classified as a monster? It might be a bit tricky to convince my significant other to let me do another kickstarter, especially with a little on the way. Allthough I could off course go for two sets and claim it as "painting excercise" for later on...
  9. Euhm... I'm indeed wrong... Not sure why I thought it was the other way around... So disregard my remark, you did a great job
  10. I Like the white armour, that's going to be one nice paintjob! Though you might want turn the colors around on the flames ;) Overall I think you're going to have a very nice dungeoncrawl with the kickstarter set!
  11. Here's the second of the Bones minis that I've finished. It's the Bones version of 03461: Goldar the Barbarian This fellow was painted with the Reaper Flesh color and washes, just to see how they would look. It took a bit more than an hour to paint him, but not much more. At the moment I'm not yetsure if I'll put my bones on some wargaming bases, or leave them as is.
  12. about an hour each you say? really nice work for that timeframe! The only thing I don't like is the basing. I think it would like better either without slotta's beneeth the intergral base, or only on intergral bases. Stille brilliant work. Kudos!
  13. Very very nice brushwork! I really like the gritty look you achieve.
  14. Probably your hand will get more steady in time. tough I'm only 37, so can't really compare ;). The models that you chose are quite tricky to paint the eyes in as well. Nice work on the flames! looks really good. Are you using some kind of varnis at the end? Some parts of your miniatures seem to be really shiny, while other parts aren't.
  15. It was my pleasure :p But don't feel like a slacker, this is a really easy miniature to paint with large surfaces and an easy color scheme. I don't expect that I can do most of the other bones within 2-3 hours. Let's just see how it goes though :)
  16. Last saturday my bones arrived :) Off course, as could have been expected I was not there to receive or open the package as I was out of town on a stag party My girlfriend nicely guarded the box and made sure I had something to do on hangover morning :) Today I was a day with a lot of thing to do around the house, but in between I managed to wash do the hot water - cold water show with all the models with bent parts. and off course, I had to test my new reaper paints and see of they really go on the model with no problem at all. It's not that I don't believe what other people have already shown, I just need to get a feeling how the paint will flow. Mr. Bones himself was nice enough and volunteerd for this job. After all, I had fixed his bent shovel, so this was the least he could do for me. I quickly found out that the Reaper paint behave quite differnt then my citadel, P3 and vallejo. It looks like the paint already starts out a bit thinner. Nex to this, the paint was flowing nicely on some part of the model and less on other parts. I'm also going to test some primers and see if I can find one that is tolerated by the bones. Anyhow for about an hour of work I'm not that unhappy and have now my first bones miniature ready for basing (not yet sure if I'm going to base him though) Here he is, Mr bones: Comments are always welcome :) I'm going to try to put al my paintjob into this topic. Let's see if I can manage to do that :)
  17. Well, my package arrived safely after having spend about a week at customs. For the dutch people, customs will charge you 28.75 euro for the package. It's a daunting pile of miniatures... so daunting that it will probably first go into a big box and be store between al the other boxes, just to make it them feel at home and just as neglected as the rest of the miniatures :p
  18. For your first mini, you did great. Being neat and getting good brush control is very important in the beginning. when you have more experience, you don't what to be so neat anymore because fixing a few errors takes less time then being really neat. Also, always consider painting "deeper" areas which are harder to reach as first choice. you can then afford to be sloppy, since you'll paint the next colour over those parts anyhow. As for washes, if you want to make them yourself, I'd you demineralized water. However if you just started and still have to build up some feeling, I'd suggest buying a light brown, dark brown, black and flesh wash from citadel, army painter or vallejo. This is much easier and you immediately can see how much good washes can help.
  19. That is a nice collection! You can be very proud of that. Also always nice to see that I'm not the only one with a girlfriend that likes to paint the puppets (as che calls them) Your RPG and mansions of madness miniatures make me want to start on mine as well, good job and keep them coming!
  20. Really like the slime, ooze and jelly and very possible I might borrow your ideas. Nothing nicer then having a big pile of goo advancing on PC's :)
  21. Thanks for the nice comment, I was also not really sure about the miniature, but as I recently painted an Ogre army tournament legal, aka base color and washes, I want to add a model on which I could spend some more attention and at the same time try some new techniques, such as the pupils, different combinations of washes and maybe some OSL on the rock. The armour was just the old citadel Tin bits wit a wet brush highlite of brazen brass, followed by a dilutes wash of bright green artist ink. This last step makes the metal a bit more yellow and at the same time the green color nicely ages it. I'll probably need another layer of green and the matt varnish to make it really pop.
  22. Hi all, time for my first picture over here. While waiting for my bones package which is delayed at customs, I started painting an Ogre sized model from mierce miniatures Darklands kickstarter. There is still some detail work and basing to do, which will probably be done in a day or two. After that I expect that the bones and Zombicide season two. Overall I'm pretty happy with the results so far, but don't hesitate to give advice.
  23. Last night (at least for me ;)) I got an email from kit with a nice pdf invoice with a value of $100. I'm going to send it out shortly and with some luck will receive the package either at the end of the week or start of next week,
  24. If I had only ordered a vampire box, yes, this would suffice.However our pledge contained a lot of add-ons. IIRC Reaper stated that these would not incoprerated into the value of the package and that only the initial (vampire) pledge would be used. Our complete list is a but longer and surmounts to $662 excluding P&P. So you can imagine that it makes quite some difference for us.
