  1. What do you use to hold up your Dremel? When I bought my Dremel, I purchased it with/in a 200+ piece kit and it was in there. It's basically just a clamp with a hooked telescopic pole on it. A quick Google image Search lets me show you a better view of something similar: http://cdn.instructables.com/FJ4/1EZT/FKB3DTMT/FJ41EZTFKB3DTMT.LARGE.jpg
  2. What brand of paint racks are those? back2base-ix - Out of Australia, not really cheap, but I've got limited desk space, and managed to catch a free-shipping offer.
  3. I was trying to sort mine loosely by colour... taking into my bad eyes, and lack of colour knowledge: I've got more paints than rack space now though, so I need to rethink my process now.
  4. I received mine yesterday - the ghoulie bag colours were the main reason I went in on an order when I did. I know have more paints than I have room for in my painting racks. While I hate to complain about free stuffs, I couldn't help but be a little disappointed upon receiving a rock. ... It was a pretty big rock though.
  5. Almost always takes 12 days to Fredericton NB... Usually... I've had as little as 10, and I had one order get held in customs for over a week (I assume - CanadaPost tracking never actually picked it up - all I had was USPS tracking up to entering Canada, and then it showed up at my mailbox 2 weeks later). While I think you could learn your timing fairly well, there's always some potential for variations. I'd follow others recommendations and rent a PO Box, just to be safe.
  6. I'd vote for ReaperCon North -- show us Canadians some love. :)
  7. I most likely won't be attending ReaperCon, this year, (or any year in the near future, just too far away) so I'm not really sure exactly how it all works, so this could be completely down the wrong path but: I think it would be pretty cool to have a big/main prize in the RC Auction that would let you pick the next years ReaperCon Theme (subject to rules/regulations/approvals/etc.etc.etc.).
  8. Someone on the Facebook page was looking for some samurai, so I did a quick search, and ended up with this: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Samurai And for some reason, the 77006 Purple Worm comes up. Doesn't appear to be anything Samurai-ish about it - it's not tagged as Samurai (as far as I can tell).
  9. Hows about some not-borderlands and not-borderlands2 miniatures? The 'iconic' classes - along with the main enemies (not-midget, not-psycho, not-skags, etc). Oh, and not-Claptrap.
  10. Good news: I received my package today!! Not Good new: I have no idea who it's from :( There's no note, or name on the return address. Overall it's a pretty nice take on a "Young Fire Dragon" - The sealer seams a little tacky, and it stuck to the bubblewrap, some of the paint came off as I was unwrapping it (mostly on the wings, and a spot on the tail), it's not too bad, and definitely fixable. I'll try to snag better pictures once I've had a chance to fill in the blank spots. Also included was a Night Spectre, a Dragonman Warrior, and one of my favourite sculpts: Vaeloth, Hellborn Paladin. Thank you random Reaper-ite! (Reaperian? Reaperee?)
  11. Wow. These are looking really good. Also, on two unrelated notes: - You've either got really tiny hands, or these are much larger than I initially thought. - Every time I see blue gloves I can't help but think "Two by two, hands of blue".
  12. When it says international backers pays "actual shippage", I'm assuming it will work the same way as Bones 2 - with the shipping automatically calculated when you plug in what you want in the pledge calculator. But, if early bird core package ships ASAP, and all the extras ship next year - are you paying 2 shipping charges? (it makes sense that you would, but would be nice to know for sure) ETA: I guess it's kind of a moot point now as the Early Birds are all taken.
  13. So, as you may or may not have seen in the Summer Exchange thread, I painted up a Bathalian for RobinH. I included a note that had most of my thoughts/directions (or lack there of) with it, so I think I'll just post a bunch of pictures, and post part of the note below. Lots of pictures (and loads more I didn't put here) - I'm pretty happy with how it turned out overall, even if there's a few rough patches (I really should have painted the hand/book BEFORE it was attached to the muchroom). And now for my novella, for perspective, it's directed toward RobinH (in case you wonder who "you" is): Spoiler tags because WALL O' TEXT ETA - as you can see in RobinH's photos (in the Exchange thread) I patched up the black on the base after I took pictures - I didn't notice it was scuffed up before I took the photos.
  14. YAY!! I'm so glad you like it :D ETA - I'm also glad it arrived in one piece. The magnets on the bottom are just glued on, you can pop em off with a knife it you want (don't think I mentioned that in the novella I sent along with it), it'll mess the paint, but no one looks at the bottom anyways :P
  15. Ahhhhhh... I don't know if I can handle this. Nervousness, excitement, trepidation, I just don't know what to do with myself. And this is just for the package I sent.
  16. Mines in the mail on the way to it's victim recipient. Should be there Friday.
  17. Humidity was actually working for me this time, and I was able to clear coat as soon as I got home from work, and pack it tonight. I plan on dropping it by the post office tomorrow on the way home from work! I'm a little sad to see it go, it's my best work yet.
  18. I am so worried for it... I've got more "show-off" pics of it than any other mini I've done (although this is also because, I think it's the best one I've done so far too) I lied. I got distracted by silly video games and didn't put a clear coat on it, I'll do that tonight, and hopefully package it tomorrow, to be in the mail for Wednesday.
  19. Mine is complete - just needs a clear coat. I'm picking up packaging materials tomorrow, and should be in the mail the day after that. I am so worried for it... I've got more "show-off" pics of it than any other mini I've done (although this is also because, I think it's the best one I've done so far too)
  20. My mini is finished! (I think.. ...it might need more work on the eyes...) Base is coming along very nicely - I should be fine getting it in the mail sometime this coming week, Assuming I can find a way to pack it so it won't get demolished in transit.
  21. I'm not sure me being wrong counts as news... So maybe FOXNews music instead?
  22. 2200 miles, 34 hours of driving (according to Google maps, it's only 31hours without traffic). Wave 2. I'll be waiting at the mailbox for em.
  23. I picked mine up from the mailbox this afternoon - looks great :D
  24. I'm a pretty bad painter - so I won't even bother trying to pretend I know what I'm talking about. I'm also pretty bad at colours - so I won't try to help with that either. However - I'm not bad with the Googles. I've got 3 decent pics below: yellow topaz, citrine, and amber (my favourite, if I were to pick one as a reference photo for painting). Dropping them into the fancy Reaper Colour Picker Tool could yield you with decent results. Linked cause of GIANTness: http://www.gemologyproject.com/wiki/images/f/fc/Chiapas_amber.JPG
