    Graduated from UC Davis with a B.A. in sociology and am now working for the bloody state. I play the bagpipes, trumpet and others as well as write music and stories, paint (of course) and my friends and I love to beat each other silly with bamboo swords when we get the chance.

Mostly Harmless

Mostly Harmless (2/8)



  1. Judging by the look of the face, it looks more like something Garrity would do. Interesting though with the thigh boots and very little else where; must really care about those legs.
  2. My Orcs tend to be a fairly dark green. I give their skin a base coat of Elvish Green and Walnut. It turns out to be a really dark green. It works for my Orcs, but I don't think there's one specific color scheme for Orcs, it's all preference.
  3. Or you could take my approach: Buy lots of undead and skeletons that don't have eyes in the first place :D. The first mini I bought was the Skeleton (2015) because it didn't have eyes and I wouldn't be intimidated by having to paint eyes on my first mini. But for eyes, I'm currently using a Sceptre Gold II size 0000, which is pretty small, but I'm still looking for a smaller brush.
  4. Maybe that's my problem. ??? I've got 15 unpainted Reaper Orcs (with about 10 more not purchased yet) that make up 3 distinct social groups in a quest I'm writing. But I don't mind, it gives me the chance to experiment with different armor styles and other cool Orc-like things. That also doesn't include their undead counterparts :D .
  5. I'm not sure if it's a good thing, but I'm still at the point where I can remember all the minis that I've bought. I guess it's up for discussion; but that's another non-created thread and to continue with the discussed topic: I've thought about creating a list to catalogue all the minis that I have, but I still don't think I have all that many. Although most of them are unpainted. A full list of all the minis, even the OOP ones would be cool however. :)
  6. I'm going to step out on a limb here and say that although I wasn't too excited about the Dwarven wizard, I really liked the pug and earlier, I couldn't see buying the wizard & pug just for the pug. Will this pug be included in a Warlord familiar pack or a Dark Heaven line?
  7. Seeing as how this is the most recent 'Primer' thread, I thought I'd just continue with another question. Not being entirely intelligent when it comes to the different types of primers, does anyone know the differences between automotive, sandable, wet sandable or clean metal (which I'm currently using) primers? Asking anyone knowledgable about any of these.
  8. Only after I had about 15 minis (months ago) did I realize that all but two were Sandra Garrity sculpts. While I like her style, the faces on both men and women seem to be pretty uniform, especially in Reapers earlier years. While true that a some of her sculpts are not always acurate in that 25mm is the standard (her sculpt of Fitch Coincatcher 2545 is about the same size as the a normal human. Not that I mind, haflings are small enough already.) I also really like Bob Olley's sculpts of undead and I still think that he has the best wraiths. Garrity's sculpts in this area are alright, but they seem too flat and two dimensional. I guess Olley's poses are just more dramatic. Rob Ridolfi also has good sculpts and I'm just getting into Klocke. I really like what Klocke's done with the Dwarves; he's made them more 'Dwarvish' and less like squaty humans.
  9. he he he, oops. *walks away with head hung low and nearly dragging on the floor.*
  10. How come there was no mention of it anywhere on Reaper's site or on the boards? Are we not loved too? :( :(
  11. Well, here's the official word from the Rust-Oleum people about not having black 'clean metal primer': "I'm not sure why we do not manufacture this product. I would guess because it is easier to cover up a light primer with a dark paint than it is tocover up a dark primer with a light paint." But what about dark paint on dark primer? Anyway, that's what I was able to get out of their 'Technical Services' guy.
  12. I've also wondered why Rust-oleum doesn't have a black primer. I've been leary about trying their flat black paint as I'm not sure as to the comparisson between consistancies (sp?). If you don't mind shelling out more money (about 2x more) you could always buy Citidels black primer. I've never used it, only their matte sealer.
  13. Oh am I glad that someone brought this up because I was about to look for the old thread on primers. I just used Krylon Black Primer for the 3rd time and I must say that I'm less than happy with it. I know some people on the boards have had better experiences, but I just felt like venting. What happened was that the primer left granual spots on the mini and the spray clogged up after every couple sprays. I think I'll still be sticking with Rust-oleum.
  14. I've peddeled this company before, but BigWorldComics.com has Domnu Demon Queen (correct miniature?) in stock. The downside from what experience I've had with the company is that they are sloooooooooooooow. It took about a month to go from ordering to shipping; but, if you're willing to be patient, you could go with them as well. So, here's the link: Domnu Demon Queen. Good luck Lady Tam.
  15. All this stuff brings back so many fond memories of Hero Quest. Although the 'rules' that the game had established were a bit too strict, but it's not like we didn't tweak them anyway. I still find that even though the figures were plastic, they're still good to practice techniques on that I wouldn't want to try with my good Reaper minis.
