  1. Thanks, the ax is just 1 coat of contrast color basilicasum (sp?) grey and metallic silver on the edge of the blade. Super easy. I cant remember if I put black wash or not.
  2. There is no added brown. I just brushed on citadels contrast paint called Skeleton Horde. That's just a heavy coat of citadels contrast color Gore-grunta fur. It's pretty good for fast red hair.
  3. Mostly contrasts (the gold and edge of ax are metallics. The reddish leather belt under the gold is reaper msp...and of course the eyes arent contrasts.) The bone & snakebite are great as everyone knows but what surprised me was how good the grey contrast was for NMM steel.
  4. If it helps, I have shaky hands from medication. I sit with my right foot either on my seat or on my left knee and then press my wrist into my right knee (since I'm right handed). I dont really move my hand at all, just bring the mini to the brush. Both my wrists are usually pressed against my knee and I just move the brush with my fingers.
  5. @ksbsnowowl dire croc is a great mini. I just got one this week. It never made it to my reaper drawer. I assume its in her dollhouse or toy chest with my wyren and dragons dont share 2 dragon.
  6. Anyone have links to terrain that print well on a PLA printer?
  7. I started using Reaper paint 10 years ago but logged in last week to buy some colors I am running low on and now there are 2 new paint lines (bones & pathfinder) and their description is the same as the core msp description. It's confusing and annoying. I bought some new ones and 2 from 2 different lines look identical.
  8. Finishing Zombicide Green Horde base game. Bottom tray of 63 zombies done so far.
  9. @Darcstaar agreed, but for knocking out quantity I would still prefer AP dip. I would need to find an additional step that made these pop more with minimal effort to use contrast for bulk. Contrasts would be great if I didnt already know all the tricks for making AP dip pop.
  10. It's okay. More splotchy than I would like. I might try some dry brushing & highlight the teeth and nails. So far my only use for contrasts has been to save time on leather and camo bags & bits.
  11. Wanted to see what contrast colors look like over zenithal. Meh.
  12. My 2 year old asked if she could paint a miniature or as she calls them "those guys". I let her rummage through my big drawer of bones and she settled on a villager with a rolling pin.
  13. I don't know anything about 3D printing so don't know the specs or materials. It's the Earth Brewery by Dicey miniatures. I was thinking of picking up an primer for wood rather than miniatures so it would fill in small cracks then sanding it and priming it again with miniature primer. I was worried all the vertical and horizontal lines catching light would ruin any illusion of texture and grain. Also considering using hot glue to at more realistic texture but have never done it on something this large so am a little gun-shy.
  14. Anyone have tips or advice for dealing with the texture of 3D printed scenery pieces. I would love to get it to a texture more typical of resin, bones, metal, etc so the unnatural printing lines don't show.
  15. Will Ursula the Bear Rider be back in Bones before the end of the Halloween ghoulie bad special? It's the main thing I want.
