  1. Toddler decided they wanted to paint without me and did a whole bunch of palette filling. Unfortunately that paint couldn't go back on the bottles. I know some paints are oop, so I'll be looking at the list in this forum. But there's some paints I really liked. I'm limited by what's in stock locally, which means one location that carries non GW paints. I'm periodocally going to post aboit stuff that I no longer have enough to paint to try and get suggestions for replacemrnts that people have liked. This is really brutal for me budget wise so... ugh Maybe I'll have a few hours to go through things later today.
  2. I have lost the money budgeted for this to bad luck purchase so I'll have to skip. The walls were great, but I also don't want to deal with enough for shipping and dealing with customs for taxes
  3. A local option https://www.reapermini.com/search/77276 Or the bones pirates, finaela / Mariel Twinspar, potentially with upper body of Mab grindylow if you want something more monstrous, but not so bestial?
  4. There's a certain kind of artist paint-I forget the exact type, but Pingo introduced me by using some. I only have blue. You layer it over a background- white or black- to different effect. Big $ layout for a specific project (bigger bottles than Reaper at 10$ Cdn a pop) but if you have a few of them could be a cool effect. Edit. The kind I have is Golden Interference paint. But also maybe too close to color shift for OP.
  5. I'm debating it for a motte and bailey setup. Roughly 100$ of add-ons gets you Canadian shipping (but not taxes) and 8x8 square + tower. Need to see if it makes sense to do a bit more up to 12x10
  6. I remember it being announced they would only be available as a set
  7. So that's what people were talking about. I would've been interested in seeing more. I imagine it's the molds that are more at issue and depends on pledge manager spending.
  8. I just saw the pigmen way back in thread. Looks like they didnt get officially revealed. Anything they were associated with? I assume It was from Twitch, whicu wouos explain me completely missing it.
  9. Pledg.it is so bad as a pledge manager I got a notice of shipping about a week after delivery.
  10. Unless it's changed You'll get charged for each pledge manager transaction, and will see stuff in the cart. Would be like the pledge calculator. Taxes on import more than shipping. I think it was 60/30 for me last time ( 3 expansions + lots of add-ons).
  11. Let's call it last before show off
  12. More day 2 Alpha Flight Northstar Guardian Puck (listening to Barry White) Sasquatch Can't see the soft underbelly otherwise
  13. Day 2 Some have more base work amd highlights than others
  14. What are these you're talking about? Orc Patron? Walrus gang? What?
  15. I feel like 5 hours painting is pretty reasonable to accomplish this much on 6 minis after a long lay-off.
  16. Gonna have to think about Rotstump Bog. Not what I was expecting. Like the dead sitting dude and the witch a lot though.
  17. Seeing some real sloppy stuff but hard to see otherwise
  18. Now to see if I can unlock the windmill (not personally, of course).
  19. Is painting... but probably not much for a while after Alpha Flight unless there's a family painting day.
  20. Russet Brown and Russet Brown + Redstone Highlight then RB +RH + lava orange on Sasquatch And Cinnamon Red on Guardian
  21. If you want to give Reaper money the disappointment when you find you have less reason to than you hoped can come out in different ways. I don't see it as whining and complaining. And as long as there's no meanness then it can be useful. Ultimately it isn't helpful to call out and can come across as pretty insulting.
  22. And a base coat update Yellows are axe handle yellow Whites are creamy ivory+ blue flame Pale blue is glacier blue Black is nightmare black 3: ultramarine shadow 1 Red is red shadow.
  23. My big problem is everything I want is at the end, but far enough away that not much hope of unlocking through kickstarter. There isn't enough stuff already unlocked or close that I want to pledge extra and be happy with if the stuff I want more never unlocks, which is the big difference this year and past. So I can't justify extra now and either have to ask for a refund or worry about reducing at the last minute.
  24. First painting in.... 6 months? I just got my Marvel United X-MEN delivery (more here) I will be painting up Alpha Flight first. Washed Primed ( I'll fix the bases later) Lots of really hard to reach angles. Still cheesed they only included one twin (no Aurora).
