  1. Pick your poison mate. Real G's come in all the colors you mentioned and others. You could do them as silverbacks or entirely grey even. White with purple/bluish flesh like yetis or samsquanches. Blackest black like the shade in the jungle. A blonde G would be neat too.
  2. Yep, probably possibly legit. This page has a pic of the card (careful clicking strange links, but feel free to search for "2nd Stimulus Check" to see what it looks like if you don't want to click it). https://wgntv.com/news/second-stimulus-check-irs-urges-people-to-watch-mail-for-these-envelopes/ You got yours FAST though! Thought that hadn't gone through Congress yet. Looks like it was yesterday.
  3. I'll reiterate what Glitterwolf said: no flash. Indirect lighting as others have said, but a camera flash creates shadows and hotspots--even on the blackest of backgrounds.

    Ebay core sets?

    I'll throw in on this. $200 is fair for a $100 Core Set. Remember, they paid $100, at some (negligible, granted) risk and investment cost, then waited upwards of 2 years to get it. Then shipping/packaging is pushing $20. So that's a very fair markup. On the other hand, most sellers would take $160 probably. Plus to buy it all retail you're looking at closer to $300, if all the models are even available for purchase yet. Edit: Also, you can pick up the entire Core and sell off what you don't want. Subsidizes your hobby and helps someone else get specific minis.
  5. Here's a neat option: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ru0rEyVia2Y You can just search for "miniature marble painting" techniques. If you have an airbrush it expands your options, and this video can be useful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eLVE1q0fGDA
  6. White glue...could work. It dries clear, so it sort of depends on the size of the chain links. Too small and you get a knobby rope! If you have extra chain material, you can experiment with it. I like TGP's suggestion too. Superglue could be used at attachments for drooping chains, or maybe soak the thing (superglue tends to pull away from openings). I think superglue would be quite brittle in that function though.
  7. Depending on how long, you could use plastic jewelry chains and simply glue each link together. That would work for shorter or supported chains. For longer/bigger you could use a scaffold made of stiffer wire and either attach the chain with glue or thread wire through it at intervals, then glue. Use curves in the chain to hide the wire itself.
  8. What IS that guy!? I think I need one!
  9. I think you mean "owlriginal" idea... @Mini That is truly hoowonderful! It's so cool it makes my head spin! Very simple and elegant. Just superbly executed all around.
  10. You are in the wrong correct forum. Did you check any other posts FAQs? This is a miniature painting and modeling forum. But And welcome just the same! This is definitely the place to ask about airbrushes! Edit: Woops! Reaper makes an airbrush!?
  11. Could be over-thinned, could just be the nature of reds. If you're looking for a vibrant red in the end you can even prime in a pink or bright orange. Otherwise, as stated, use a tan, medium brown, or darker orange depending on the finished tone you're after.
  12. I'm sure there's something else in the pics, but I can't see anything besides that hair! It's fabulous and perfect!
  13. Cool. If you're using less durable materials you could always snatch the cardboard tube from a roll of cling wrap or foil. Otherwise, you can find pvc pipe of the right diameter for a couple of dollars. Either drill a hole and plug it with the mast or attach some kind of tab or pin as you did with the figurehead. edit: or just a section of wood dowel if you're actually buying things!
  14. I don't know how much of it is intentional maligning. But it was definitely not indicated for COVID, then it was maybe (I forgot if that was before or after Trump started spouting its virtues), then it was off the table again (at least as recently as June, 2020) for COVID due to the rarer side effects. The side effects are real, if fairly uncommon, and I've taken it for 27 days as an anti-malarial--no side effects that I could tell. When is the study you're referring to, relative to the most recent *news* update on HQC's use? Another reason for maligning is simply that it hasn't been thoroughly tested for the new use. It's usually prescribed as an anti-malarial (and maybe as an anti-clotting agent? Not sure of all the uses), but prescribing it for symptoms of a completely unknown disease is kind of bonkers without rigorous testing. We're still finding new symptoms and complications that may make this the wrong drug for some patients. Too many variables!
  15. Agreed on disagreement with experts. Hydroxychoroquin is, and has been doubly determined, NOT to be a safe way to treat or prevent COVID 19 and there are pretty nasty side effects that aren't worth the risk. Doc not get the memo?
