  1. I wasn't just speaking to Dino minis in plastic i was speaking to Bones in general. I actually haven't bought any Reaper in over a year and have painted nary a one in as much a time. They just don't fit into the TTG's I play right now.
  2. Bones... bendy plastic minis.....bleh. I'll keep my addiction to metal miniatures and when everyone stops producing them I quess I've have to go to rehab cuz I'm not interested. Sorry Reaper...you make some good mini's but if they are made in that plastic then you've lost me.
  3. As much as I like the peeps on Reaper forums I really think that going on more broadly visited sites such as Frothers or CMoN and recounting your experience with the "Evil Empire" would perhaps be to more effect. I plainly won't tolerate poor customer service after I have spent my coin especially from an obvious Cromag CSR. But then again I haven't played any evil empire games since Battlefleet Gothic.
  4. Nice figures on Tinman..but the thoat isn't anything like I pictured them...tail too short and neck too long,
  5. There is already a line of mini's out there that are based on ERB's Martian books....green, red martians and also thoats and great white apes. Not sure if there are zitidars or calots though. Not sure if they are licensed though with ERB's estate. Found it...It's Bronze Age Miniatures. The listings are not called what you would think but you can see pics of what would be recognized as being from Barsoom...:)
  6. For me the most useful aspect of LGS is the ability to fill in rough parts of a casting using it and a wet brush. Turns cloaks and robes that would require a fair bit of filing or sanding into smooth surface easily. Vallejo makes a comparable product in thier water-soluble plastic putty.
  7. Played in two weekend betas and loved it. For me probably Jedi Sage and Smuggler on one server and Sith Marauder and Bounty Hunter on another. But I'm so afflicted with altiholism that no doubt I'll have at least one of each basic class toon from each faction eventually. i also played SWG and loved it up to the travesty of the CU and NGE.
  8. I love the FW stuff. And a great job painting this SK...go Ultramarines..:)
  9. I've never been a fan of bases that take almost as long as the darn mini to complete for models that are destined for the table top so I keep them simple.
  10. Thanks SK :) I just wish I could get the photo fu right cuz these really don't do my brushwork justice. I'm saving up for a real camera and light box set up so eventually I'l get it right...lol
  11. Again I choose to stay with the normal colors with minor variations. I definately need a better camera and photo setup. These images fail to capture all the shading and highlights.
  12. Correct Haldir. Gorilla Glue contians an additive that is rubberish in nature allowing the bond to absorb a certain amount of stress. I have switched to using it exclusively in recent months.
  13. I decided to go with the normal scheme with minor variations.
  14. I would add to this that using an old toothbrush and some dishsoap under some warm water is even better especially on plastic or resin minis. And if you have handled the mini for a time even oil off your fingers can effect things. Doh...slow typing...lol
