  1. @WhiteWulfe - We do not currently have plans to release a 70mm base. Wood bases! Have a favorite?
  2. And, it's live again! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/secretweapon/hd-bases-by-secret-weapon-miniatures-0
  3. Hi Disciple of Sakura. $50 will be our lowest price point for this Kickstarter relaunch.
  4. I also wanted to address a question I had read before on the last thread regarding how much texture the bases already had. I took some time this weekend to play around and do some spot repainting, and full repainting. Hope this helps as well!
  5. A message from Secret Weapon: Big news time everyone! As many of our pledgers know, we need to adjust the Kickstarter - On the positive, we have a good amount of backers and we know that MANY of you are waiting to up your pledges. We have had a really positive response to the product itself, and lots of interest on the customer and retail side. We deeply appreciate this and your support. BUT - we have a good amount of backers who are opting to wait on their $1 pledge. This is entirely our fault. We caused this when we locked our core offering behind stretch goals. There is no single item that is core. ALL the options are core. We made it so that many of you had to wait around to buy what you already knew they wanted. That's a big boo boo, but it was made with the best of intentions. The system was set up so that there was no mandatory amount, and you added what you wanted and nothing more. We thought that this was better for the customer, but it quickly became obvious the vast majority of backers want jump-in points at set amounts like a usual KS... and weren't entirely sure about a pledge manager that was open during the campaign. So, what are we going to do to fix this for you? We are going to close the campaign, and relaunch it next week. That sucks and it's embarrassing. But ultimately everything else that happens is great for EVERYONE, because this is what happens next: 1.) ALL themes will be shown and unlocked right off the bat. If you want Urban Streets or Infinity, you just go get it, no hoops or delays to choosing what you want. You also know exactly what is on offer. 2.) There will be pledge levels: $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+). The 100 dollar + level will include a set of 3 weathering pigments (really really good ones too - Burning Sands, Dark Earth, and Rust Orange), and the 200 dollar + level will be the pigment set, and a set of 3 genuinely awesome paints. Secret Weapon's Rubber Highlight, Rubber and Tire Black, our most popular colors! At the end of the campaign you will use the Pledge Manager, as usual, to make whatever specific choices you want based on your KS pledge. The Pledge Manger will be available during the campaign for those that would like help figuring out a total pledge level, but that is optional, and you can wait until the end of the campaign to sign up. 3.) Each of the $50(+), $100(+) and $200(+) pledge levels will have 3 shipping zone options Americas, Europe (NOT UK) AU, NZ, Asia, Pacific United Kingdom (NOT Europe) 4.) Any extra themes that are developed during the course of the KS will be added immediately, no stretch, we just give you the option as soon as it is available. There will be 17 themes live at the time of launch, which doesn't count the licensed product from Corvus Belli and CMON Zombiecide. PICTURE TIME
  6. @WhiteWulfe - Right now these are the four themed sets we have planned for Infinity: We do not, at this time, have plans to release specific army themed box sets.
  7. Here are some photos of miniatures on the bases that also show the texture and depth of them! And anything on the base that looks like it's metallic is actually NMM.
  8. Hi Disciple of Sakura! I'm working to get photos of the bases taken so that you can see the relief and texture. Stay tuned for an update here in a little bit!
  9. LOL - nope. My hair was Pthalo green with a bit of neon at the hairline. Just a still frame from a video shot of me climbing over a table while wearing giant platforms. :D https://www.facebook.com/tishwolter/videos/10209035692383935/
  10. Thank you all for the help and answers. @Clever Crow - I bought 2 pots of liquitex inks, but it seems to me that they have an opacity to them (like there is white in the ink). Maybe I just picked the wrong ones? I'm looking for intense color that is translucent. And it sounds like the Tamiya clears are far too goopy for what I'm looking for. I painted the below model many years ago, using the GW Purple ink as my shade, and it produced an effect that I haven't been able to replicate since. :(
  11. I've been a painter for quite a while, and have yet to find anything that comes close to the old hex pot GW inks. Has anyone used the Tamiya Clear colors? If so, are the dilutable, will they eat my brush, and do they handle dilution the same as regular acrylic paint? Thanks all!
  12. Thanks for the "Congrats" on my piece. Yes, the mini took first place in her category and third place overall. :)
  13. Shouldn't that be in purple? Just to be on the safe side I'll make this note: Jessica Rich, aka Brushmistress already paints for DS. Also check out her awesome CMON gallery! :) Also note: another of the phenomenal painters Jim employs is Marike! I only give Jess a hard time because she once punched me so hard in a bar fight it knocked me out for 2 hours. True story. I hit hard. ;) And yes, I painted for Dark Sword. I've stepped away though to focus on painting miniatures that I can devote more time to. Marike, Jen Haley, Rhonda Bender, Sue Wachowski, and now, I believe Kat Martin, are amongst the plethora of lady painters that have filled up Dark Sword's immense collection of studio figures.
