  1. I hope this doesn't sound hokey, but you know the plastics make some of the armies even less expensive. Also more demo-friendly. Metal elf archers are very delicate, but plastic ones? Not so much. A unicorn for $5.99? Put it on a Cavalry base, add a little flocking, an you're done. Really, if they keep putting minis from Warlord out as plastics, it will be possible to have newbie-proof, inexpensive demo armies. What's not to love about that?
  2. I'm preparing for Mega Convention 2009. If you would like information about the painting activities, you can go to the Paint and Take Website.. For more information about Mega Convention itself, go to the convention website. Still in the planning stages, but we will have Paint and Take, classes and a painting contest this year. Reaper is one of our sponsors and has been our first and most generous supporter. I hope to see some of you guys there. Melanie
  3. Hello! The mini came in the mail yesterday. She's beautiful! Now I just have to find someone to play Warlord with. I intend to user her as my Druidess. BTW, Meg, I really like the way you flocked the base. Very subtle. It looks like you took my comments about basing into consideration and created something I'd like, not just something that's pretty. Thank-you! Now I just have to get mine done. Oy.
  4. Additional notes on two-part epoxies: Brown stuff, Green Stuff and White Stuff are all made by the same company, Polymetic Systems. The correct name for the products is Kneadatite. Brown Stuff is an aluminium mix that cure very hard. Green stuff is not as stiff but can be easily carved once it is cured. White Stuff is flexible when cured, which makes it inadiquate for most modeling uses. Procreate is a fairly new product; it has been on the market about two years now. When you see "Greens" that are actually grey, the've been sculpted with Procreate. Apoxysculpt comes in a wide

  6. "Gap Filling" is a property of some glues which means it does not need a lack of air to cure. It will help to glue pieces together even if they don't fit tightly together, hence the "gap filling" property. "Sealing between layers" refers to giving a mini a thin coat of sealant to protect what has already been done. Necessary for some brands of paint that rub off easily. EX: Vallejo Model Color. This process is also used to seal work that has been done before applying a step that my need to be removed to correct an error, such as freehand. By sealing the mini, it is possible to gently
  7. This may seem odd to those of you who like music in the background, but I kind of like painting in quiet. It's less distracting for me. That, and I have so much background noise at work that a little quiet is welcome.
  8. Hey, just for comparison, could we see a mini you did with craft paints? I'm currious how much of a difference the MSPs made for you. It's a very nice mini. I'd never know it was your first try at basing if I wasn't told.
  9. It never hurts to keep a couple oldies but goodies so you can see how far you've come. Maybe the frog guy, for example. I've tried Pine Sol as a stripper, but I prefer Simple Green.
  10. Hey, Meg. She looks great! I think she'll be put into service in my Warlord Army as the Elvin Druidess. I like what you are doing with the skin. It's great you started dark and gave yourself more contrast there. Very nice looking brown hair as well. You may be pushing outside your comfort zone, but it's a good change. I guess this means I have to get off my behind and finish upt the Elf Lord, huh? Mel
  11. Just for reference, a tortie has no white. A cat with red, black and white is a calico, not a tortoiseshell. Painting a tortie could be a real challenge, as the red tends to be in very small splotches. This is my tortie, Spunky. Her face is almost half and half. Her mother was really cool; her face was in quarters of red and black, almost like a checkerboard.
  12. I drop them, loose little bits, have them knocked over by my cats, or just knock them off myself. It's a wonder I get anything done.
  13. VV, I especially like the look of the metals on this one. Very nice.
  14. Thanks for the support, everyone. I received an email from a breeder of Patterdale Terriers. I had emailed him about my dog: Melanie, Hello.I am very sorry to hear about your losing Robin.I know what it is to lose a loved pet.Over the years we have lost many,due to different circumstance,and you never get used to it,each time it still hurts.On our site you will see a picture of "Skeet aka VooDoo Princess".She was my sister's dog,and her daughter used to dress her up,play with her,and she went wherever my sister and her family went.She was guarding my sister from a mastiff that approache
  15. Heisler is right about weathering kits. A friend of mine gave me a bunch of chalks for railroad and historical models when he switched to using powdered chalks. No grinding, just use them right out of the package. I think Tamiya makes a weathering kit with powdered chalks. Probably cheaper to pick up individual pastels at an art store, though.
