Godlike (8/8)



  1. Been working on these guys as a test for the squad color scheme. Trying some layering on the white, it's working out well so far. They're 1:48 scale, same as Star Wars Legion, and I've rebased them onto the same 27mm bases that Legion uses. Mostly because the standard D1947 bases are like 35mm. Way huge.
  2. A thought -- One thing I run into constantly with Bonesium is that it's hard to tell the difference between white plastic and white primer. I know Reaper makes a couple of alternate-color primers (grey and black IIRC) but perhaps a wider range of these could help folks out, using the primer as a first basecoat as has been suggested by some companies. No need to make it spray (except airbrushable, of course), but just something in a regular bottle that we can slap on with a brush. Sixish-nineish colors, maybe (light/dark blue, light/dark green, light/dark brown, red, yellow, purple?)
  3. With StarGrave about to release there's a lot of market for more sci-fi figures. Spaceship crew, space pirates, that kind of thing.
  4. I've run this a couple of times at conventions and it was a bit of a sleeper - caught some interest but few actual sign-ups since I was only doing one session due to time limitations and it was a pretty obscure game.
  5. Just picked this up on iOS, looking great! I love the "rapid scan" feature, makes it easy to add in my collection a drawer's worth at a time. I would love to see a simpler method to select a manufacturer to look at the list from, however, the current rotating banner is a bit of a hassle. Maybe a drop-down option instead? Did run into a bunch of "no such paint" in the Apple Barrell section, however: 20204 Wild Berry 20206 Light Orchid 20224 Carolina Blue 20509 English Lace 20514 Flesh 20538 Forest Green 20540 Red Spice 20549 Midnight Blue 20553 Boston Blue 20568 Sage Green 20765 Cinnamon Apple 20769 Periwinkle Blue 20775 True Teal 20779 Caramel Candy 20781 Dolphin Grey 20792 Plum 20845 Terracotta I don't know if these are older colors that were discontinued, or what... they've been sitting in my rack for about 15 years now, only drag them out for terrain work, but still.
  6. ... and now I know why mine has been sitting in the unfinished box. Excellent work, it looks great.
  7. Mmm. My workbench is a bit of a mess right now... and no green at the moment. I've been working on some L5R/ClanWars Doji House Guard, so lots of blue and white.
  8. I've run this at conventions a couple of times and folk really enjoyed it, I'd love to play more.
  9. I was just recently introduced to Test of Honour -- Liking the system a lot. Went out and splurged on some minis from GCT Studios' Bushido setting and dug out my old L5R Clan Wars stuff. Just two of us for now but hoping we can get a group going.
  10. I have tried Reaper's brush-on primer on both metal and bonesium and been very disappointed. I do not seem to get the kind of even coat that I am used to with Vallejo's equivalent. Am I perhaps not mixing it well enough? It seems to be a thinner consistency than the VMC primer.
  11. Eagerly awaiting the iOS version as well. I've been using "paint pot" but it does not update quickly if at all.
  12. A friend I knew (Froggy! You here?) would go over them with steel wool. (And then ink the bare metal, for robot types...)
  13. Picked up a couple of these when they hit the shelves, haven't had much chance to play around with them yet. Gonna try the blue for police uniforms for my pulp stuff, see how that turns out. Green for lizard-types out of the Bones 4.
  14. Any suggestions on how to use the inks? How do they compare to, say, modern GW washes?
