    Beautiful work. You really got some nice vibrant colours going. What is your usual method to achieve the effect, without colours getting too subdued?

    Thanks!

    Mostly just eyeballing the layers, to see if I should go a bit brighter. More of a judgement call on when to stop. Reapers color triads are good but usually missing an in between color or brighter highlight. Most of the time I am using 4 variations of a color for highlighting and maybe a glaze to get them blended nicer. I don't have time for smooth blends.  It usually comes down to something working nice or something not and working to fix it if any of that makes any sense. :)

    Inspiring and beautiful - the shading on those intense green, the unnaturally bright red... wow - and then you echoed those colors with the basing... brilliant!

    Thanks!

    I struggle with basing and wish I could do more. I knew I wanted a contrast between life and death and was hoping it would not be to much green where the dragon would end up being lost.

    Brilliant Colors! 

    and the flowers go really well. 

    I painted up mine for a campaign as well - which also ended too soon. 

     

    Thanks, pandemic ruined our game night. Luckily we can still play online, but we don't use the models that way.

    Excellent!  Really love the bright green and red.

     

    Thanks, bit of an experiment with the red. I used the citadel spiritstone red gemstone gloss. Although it covered my  pink highlights, visually it looked really gruesome too me. So I decided to use a lot of it (at some point I was committed to it) It is clear so my highlights still helped with the effect.

    Selections from the Rob Dean box.

     

    -A ruined building

    -DSM-5119 Roose Bolton

    -Bones Overlord Cavalry

    -Lady with book and rapier

    -Bear of unknown provenance (I just decided before opening the box to create an Uplifted Bear for Starfinder)

     

    Box should go out tomorrow, all things permitting.

     

    Didn't know the bear would be so popular :)

    He is a rescue bear from a friend I did some painting for.  When I first met him, I thought he was the only person on the planet with a room full of boxes of naked metal.

    He mentioned requesting his grave be filled in with them but doesn't want to poison the earth. 

    I traded him a couple of models for what felt to me like a toys r us shopping spree in that room. The bear came from that spree. I was planning on using it alongside the reaper female gnome riding on a bear model. So when she was off the bear, he would have his own attack model.

     

    The model ruined house looked 3d printed, from the hatched lines that I am used to seeing on those types of models.  It came with a ruined tower I painted up. If you can identify the tower, you may be able to figure out who made the house.

    You followed the original color scheme, too!color_1600x1200.thumb.jpg.542839e89d09379a15d16a7e783361a3.jpg

     

    The current Pathfimder Gorilla King is a silverback Dire Ape with red cloak but I'm pretty sure he is actually the successor to the one from boxed set

     

    Weird...I could have painted his fur any shade of brown or black, but went with that blue gray I thought would be unique. Lol. The cape and the cape buckle...very strange.

    I have a couple more of those paizo figures but not the ones pictured. They were all castaways from a friend of mine.

      I wasn't bothered by GF's post.  I read it as simply calling our attention to his handwritten rule #6 which he posted earlier.  IMO, that rule provides adequate notice that you should only take the free items you can use (but not multiple free items to pass out to people not participating in the exchange).

     

    It isn't about the subject of the message, but how it was conveyed to the person.

    Thank you, I would not have known this either.

    "LeBlanc and Boudreaux" :lol:

    You sure have your Cajun names down! 

    That candle zombie gatorman really does look like a tough mini to tackle. She came out beautiful though! Love the underside of the tail & those wounds. The water effects & bubbles on the base rock. Man, your whole swamp play setup looks so cool. 

     

    I used a gloss sealer to give the swamp a shine, which is really just a blob of putty rolled across the base.

    The bubbles are easy, I rolled some putty into a small ball and some flat. Placed the ball on the base,  then draped the flat putty over it like a cloth and worked the sides into the base to blend in.

    Hey! Hey! Hey!  Put some of those stickers back! Everyone gets one and ONLY one! If you want more, DM me and I'll share where I got them with you. Don't be greedy.

    This is bothering me.

    Read a few times trying to figure out if this was just joking around. I don't see this kind of communication on Reaper pretty much ever. 

     

    If it is serious, you could have private messaged him nicely instead of what appears to be shaming lidless for doing what the box is meant for.

    It just seems like telling someone you can take cookies from the cookie jar and then smacking their hand when they do.

    Was this your first cycle?  It’s generally a custom to run the boxes as long as possible.

    No it isn't, it's still going, but I am leaving a note for the carrier in the mailbox tomorrow to remind them to pick up the box. Going to do another scheduled pick up. Not sure what the deal was today, usually they are good about getting the packages I leave for them.

    Box is on front porch waiting for pickup.  I could not use my last medium flat rate box due to a recent sale, so with some extra tape, the BOGW will have to survive at least one more trip. 

    When I pealed all the shipping labels off, it looked as though I was about the 5 person the box got shipped to. ::D:

    Good luck!

     

    Well, I did click n ship and scheduled a pick up 2 days ago for today. Package has been exactly where noted, at front door since 7:30 am and that is where it is still sitting after mail got delivered today.  :angry:

    Metal Tin Man - metal, looks like he would make a decent warforged character.

     Kurff the Swift - metal - decent adventurer model

    Yochlol - lead -that is some mustache hall of fame going on. He is damn good looking yochlol for it's age. Definitely going to paint him up.

    Wizard with sword? - lead, Anybody have any info on him? I'm actually very excited about painting this guy. Never seen him and just a unique looking figure. He will hit the show off forum a some point. 

    Flesh golem? - bones - should be usable in my upcoming castle ravenloft campaign

    Warg or dire wolf? bones - was happy to see a wolf in the box, I lack them and they are always usable. 

    a barrel - resin

    a barrel mimic - resin - how could I pass this combo up?

    Bag o' Ghost pirates - bones - I've been wanting to experiment on some of these translucent figures.

    Some bases I can use

    happy seppuku base stamp - super happy about this, I am always on the lookout for base stamps, they just make finishing up a model so much easier for me. 

     

    This is what I added:

    I will likely put through online for my mail carrier to pick up the box Thursday or Friday. 

    I am a bit worried about the box though, so badly beaten. Although, I have a spare medium flat rate I may have to use.

    me neither, but this is  definitely one of the exceptions

     

    it's a great mini and a  good paintjob

     

    They sort of fill in as a cheap alternative, like Bones models do, but I would still rather have a nice metal mini in most cases.
