  1. Edited original post to include images and further steps
  2. Well I used Mangu Timur as a test figure for a color scheme I am planing on using for a War band. I am thinking since I got 2 in the kickstarter using one to get cleaned up and painting in the test scheme as a final product. here is my test bed figure. Front Back Shield side. Closer face and chest 2 things to take note of my camera is crap and Mangu here is not the best looking example on the block (mis/poor cast?). could use some suggestions/inspiration to go further with Mr. Timur here. I will look through my recently received replacements and see if i have a better one to do a full WIP on. At this point here is what has been done. Primed with Army Painter (AP here on out) spray gunmetal. Then washed with Citadel Drakenhof Nightshade, built back up the gun metal layer staying towards the middle and high points of the armor plates. Then using AP Warpaints (WP) gun metal to add high lights in tighter center of armor plates. Then used AP WP Shining silver to edge light the armor plates and other raised parts (mainly where light is going to be reflected from). Then gave the model a coat of Citadel Gulliman Blue Glaze. This gives the model a very blue steel look that I don't think my camera shows very well here. Then AP WP Alien purple for the cloth. AP WP Greedy gold for accent bits. and that is when I decided to crash for the morning and post this up. Edited for PG content and spelling... Edited for adding processes used to this point. Edited to add more pics
  3. too late? Maybe. We have begun shipments with some of the data entry crew. Others are still entering. Email [email protected] and if at all possible we will try to fix whatever the new issue is Nocturne - email as above and we will see what we can do. It helps if the GC has not been activated, so we can delete it Sent my email thanks for the answer i just wanted to see if there was a shot on getting my issues fixed. thanks Bryan.
  4. Hey I just got around to doing a fine detail check on my Kickstarter stuff I had already sent a mail about obvious issues and have received the replacement initiated email. Is it too late to report other issues now? also What did they do to fix the issue with ellen stone (gun slinging alien)?
  5. it's a bit expensive with shipping but here are some ways to get you organized. http://www.hobbyzone.pl/en/5-tables-for-painting
  6. maybe paint the innards with a magma effect? I am waiting on the right front leg replacement for mine.
  7. I think buglips could have done this in 2-3 days if he had a 2" brush (5.1cm or a little less than 3 digits Not sure if buglips is metric, imperial or Ancient Egyptian). What do you say buglips... you game to do it again? I am thinking about just trying to "dip" Kaladrax and see how it goes. may have to test this on a bones skeleton.
  8. in some of my models i have noticed bits of black... maybe there was some contamination. Edit: found pieces with the black marks have some malformation an poor fits on unassembeld items. second edit found Kaladrax head and tail tip to be spongey.
  9. I have the same issue but am holding off till I have finished inventory on my vampire box. That way I can get it all taken care of at once. that and i m might order some pieces from the bone yard like the shield of Almaran the gold... that would make a snazzy thunder shield for my Belial custom I am doing it is based on the Cataphracti terminator armor.
  10. @Terra Remember Mat Murdock AKA the Dare Devil developed his powers after being exposed to Chemical waste from a car accident. So I could develop super powers.
  11. LOL maybe I develop super Kaladrax powers... due to the nuclear mold release exposure... Buglips... Buglips... Buglips I summon thee to this thread to create an origin story. Go Go GO!
  12. Leave it to me to be one in something thousand people to have an issue like this. okay I will wear gloves to put them in a bath of soapy water and see if that resolves my issue.
  13. I received my bones yesterday and didn't not get to handle them till late in the evening. I was test fitting be fore washing and my hands started to itch. Some calamine lotion took care of it. but i am not wondering what is being used as a release agent. Please post if you have if you have had a similar experience. and if a Reaper peep could answer what is being used as mold release that would be helpful.

  15. honestly reaper peeps should get the 4th off. I work most major holidays this past year Thanksgiving, Xmas eve/day, and new years eve/day. it sucks even if i didn't get my shipping mail already they should get it off.
