  1. Its a Tangu actually. Similar but less... imposing? Like my character in the party? Thats a tricky one... My mini is the elf in the first picture who I named Rand Thrull. But in a twist of oddness (That the players know but the characters do not. Except the Warforged), my actual character is the sword. Yeah I'm playing a sentient weapon. Mostly for a change of pace and because my GM allowed it. In appearance my sword would like more like what the warforged is holding. I named the sword Luxumbra after the Magic The Gathering card Sword of Light and Shadow. Because yes, I a
  2. Especially when your gird mat has bumps in it! But they've done well enough so far.
  3. My group decided to start up a new 5e campaign. We just hit Level 2 and I realized we where still playing with (my) unpainted miniatures, so I offered to paint them for everyone. They're a little below what I would normally put in, but I did all 5 in a single sitting, and they are fine for tabletop play quality, so I'm happy. My largest complaint I guess, is that I apparently ran out of my trusty Testors Dullcote, so with just the Liquitex Matte Varnish I had put on, they still have much too much sheen for my tastes. But I can fix that once I have a chance to pick up more dull
  4. Which one? I've backed all three bones KS's, and I feel I would have remembered getting him? I suppose I didnt go too deep into Bones II outside of the core tho. Oh yeah, good old SASCWCtaAHSMW28mmEtA6FiRLT, super catchy shortened too!
  5. I've never thought of looking at it via Black and White, it gives a completely new perspective, thank you for that tip! Additionally thank you for the solid suggestion on the strap, I was not sure what would be best to do the edge highliting, as a light tan would not have been enough, but I think your absolutely right on the palomino gold.
  6. Question: was SirForScale part of the Bones III Kickstarter? I've seen a lot of him in Bones material in this topic, was this something people just already had, or was he in Bones III and I just totally missed it? If he was, which set/expansion was he in?
  7. So... Continuing my trend of only painting every 6 or so months, I've finally gotten more painting done. The problem is that this damn Giant, its one of the few projects I dont want to settle on. Sometimes I'll paint a mini that I know will only be for tabletop use, and if I'm not super happy about it, I'll usually move on anyway. But not this Giant, mainly he's still for practicing, but I only ever work on him when I'm "feeling in the mood". Given that I only paint 2-3 times a year, that means I have not worked on him in quite a while. On the plus side, over the past year I've had
  8. Wait, is there legit such a thing is a Reaper Paint Poker Tool, or is that a gag? Because whenever my paint get stuck I use a sewing needle, and its finicky and kinda a pain. If paint pokers are real, I would legit buy one.
  9. Very nice work, kinda inspiring to me. Are these done with Reaper paints, or another brand? Some of your colors are absolutely perfect. Like the midtone brown on the first mini's cape, or the green on the fifth mini's cape. Very curious what sorts of brands/colors you've used.
  10. A few more pictures I suppose. After my friend took all of his dragons that he went in on my order for this is what I'm left with for my haul (roughly 200 minis, including the dissembled ones off to the side in bags): Mainly from the Core set and the Stoneskull, with a few others thrown in (Air Elementals, Goremaw, etc). Also holy CRAP is Goremaw ever larger than I thought it was going to be! I thought it was going to be like the size of a Purple Worm or something! Also I think one of my unexpected favorites so far is the "Invisible Heroes
  11. I like the Microsoft Surface box just causally laying on the ground in the background, forgotten for a new box thats more fun! In more self centered news... I got my bones! To recap: Canadian, Wave 3, Early locked in. I can now confirm, as stated by others, I did not have to pay any Duties/Taxes/Import fees. UPS showed up, handed me just under 20 pounds of plastic and walked away (without a signature...). The tracking number that a bunch of us Canadians got on the 19th, that tracking number became active once it got checked in at t
  12. I feel I've been painting just long enough now to see through the simplicity in the colors into just how much work and artistic skill goes into a mini like this. I can see people looking at this and just thinking "Meh, just a green shirt and brown backpack?", without noticing all of the subtle color changes, not just one or two tones, but tons of shades! Spectacular work, I am in awe.
  13. Thank you for all of the Canadians chiming in in response! If this keeps true it'll be a huge load off my mind (and my wallet). Although I will point out that I have had an instance where UPS did not charge me at the door, but sent me an invoice 2 weeks later. And yes, I apologize, myself and many others have taken to calling all Taxes, Duties, Brokerages and Import fees as simply "Duties" out of simplistic sake, which is indeed not the case (not always anyway). When I had been estimating mine, I had indeed been taking Manitoba taxes into account, plus the UPS $10 Brokerage fee, pl
  14. @Solauren @Suden Or any other Canadian Backers that have gotten their shipment from UPS Just to confirm (or not?) there was no Duty or Import charges for you guys? Seriously that is my biggest scare right now. My bones are apparently on their way (ETA May 30th), and the thought of having to pay Duties on top of the nearly $800 CAD I've already paid is getting to me. But if there's even a slim chance that Canadians are getting their Bones without Duties... that'd be massive to me! :D
  15. You know you're my favorite person now right? Did the shipper provide any rough ETA for the delivery to the hubs? Then we get to wait for the fun that is Canadian Customs! Will it take 10 minutes? Will it take 10 days? With CBSA Agents it could be anything! After all, its for our protection!
