  1. The Hobby q ones are definitely better. Better sculpts and better color schemes.


    Either they, or the cheapo dollar tree ones are perferrable to me than metal figs. Dinos get such rare use in our games that it makes no sense for me to spend my limited hobby $ on metal dinos when there are so many more-usefull figs that will get more use.


    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. 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...:)

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. These look good Ang.


    Nice to see you posting stuff.





    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

  8. 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

  9. I seriously doubt you will find a giant medusa in the 28mm range scale. Since Medusa was a human before she was changed due to her bragging about her beauty being greater than even Aphrodite's the only part of her that might be larger than normal would be the lower torso of the snake.

    I would google 54mm scale Medusa and see what if anything turns up.



  10. I used to be opposed to the dip but have relaxed my opposition to it. After starting a 100pt Cygnar force i came to the realization that dipping the rank and file troops would speed the whole process up considerably.

    I still hold the line on characters, solos and Warjacks. A big plus for the dip is the rock hard protective coating it adds..that there is a big plus for me. Even after the dip I go over the model with some highlights and clean up but the

    net result is still a lot faster.

  11. I could be wrong but I think a site called Brushthralls has a info post on using gesso.


    I have on occasion used both white and black gesso as a primer. The best advice i can give is that you really should wait at least 12hrs after primering to start the real task of painting. Gesso draws up in the drying process so don't

    be concerned too much about obscuring detail in the application.
