  1. Ok my two minis are shipped. Had to do some repair work before sending. Both should arrive by Mon
  2. Once I have a printer again, I ll do that. My cat caused the death of my last printer.
  3. Okay, so I received both of my minis from both exchange partners. However, I feel guilty, I have managed to miss the post office each day this week and the machine has been on the fritz at my postoffice so Ive not been able to send them after hours. But I ll be at the post office right when it opens on the 'morrow and im including extras due to the delay. I shall post pictures tonight!
  4. Family emergency(gr.father) all last week-meant I was out of town and spent most of the week at the hosptial. So I was not able to mail out my minis on Sat. However, I ll be sending them out rush tommorrow so that should get them to their ppl without too much delay.
  5. Im a new enough mini painter that, almost everything is a challenge and I do not yet have a comfort zone. Maybe we can span off a 2nd thread for a Conversion excuse?
  6. I liked both the festival and picture scene but had some crazy suggestions for others too. 1. Movie Mashups - pick any two movies and paint a figure to fit in that world. (alt. would be like making retro versions?) 2. What if - take the figure and put in a random oddity. What if halflings got super power? what if a skeletons were not white? what if blue was the new black ..etc. 3. Star Warp - turn a figure into something that would fit into one of the space opera universes. 4. Animals oh my. - contest that you have to use an animal figure.
  7. It looks like a modified version of 50251. The guns are the same model and relative position as your photo.
  8. Im behind - oh I have my minis and Ive even planned out the scene for them. Now its a matter of figuring out how to simulate water when you are going to have a mini be partially in it. Bbut in a way that it ll totally make it thru customs. -any suggestions for what not to do? thinking coloring scheming the bottom and 'filling it' with a clear resin that hardens. that wont cause a problem in customs right?
  9. Luminescent / glowing/ fluorescent http://forgedmonkey.com/products-page/hobby-supplies/dayglow-pigments-glowing-rainbow-set/ These pigments are great for that type of stuff to help you paint a glow look, but they don't actually glow. Actually another forum member here had posted using them so I picked them up, they are great for glow effects like on my convergence army. In other news I am happy with the start of my exchange mini so far, managed to get his face painted (trying a slightly different technique) and base coated his hair. Know anyone that sells that in the USA?
  10. Ive selected my mini, going to be stretching the complexity compared to what Ive done before. Question -anyone know of some good glowing paints? I know there was some talk about most not thinning well.
  11. I think it's a lack of respect for multiheaded crustacions that is keeping your assignment from you. you....you think so....? ...... There is a reason ppl say dont mess with Cthulu. Though dragons concern me more! Im deciding on a paint scheme for the mini, and ordering the sealer from reaper along with a few other items I need.
  12. Im not sure where would be the best place to request this but does anyone have some painted hellhounds, Vampires, Werewolves, Creatures from any Black Lagoon, stone golem or other monster type creature who would not mind sending me a picture or two to use in a composite picture? At dragonconI had a picture taken of me posed as if Im fighting monsters and I wanted to surround myself with various dangerous creatures. (I was a Warden of the White Council from Dresden files) -I ll list you in credits for the picture. At most it ll get printed once for me to put on my wall.
  13. A bit of a problem when my game shop is limited in which bones are in stock, and some I want on the website arent available. (several Sophies)
  14. how can they be a shelf of shame if you have them?
  15. Nice picture- is it just me or has he slimmed down from the pictures in kickstarter? Hmmm now how could I make it a luminescent blue?
  16. I use superglue to assemble all my figures. Metal sometimes requires you to pin as well as glue if either of the two pieces are heavy. For that I use a pin vise and some brass pinning, these can be purchased online or in hobby shops very easily and range in price from around $9 to $20. What is pinning? I do have a friendly local hobby shop. You use the little hand drill (pin vise) I linked in the picture above to drill a little hole in each side of what you are trying to attach, super-glue the pin (brass) into one side, let dry, then glue it into the other side and let dry. After that if there's a bit of a gap you can use some green stuff, milliput, molding paste, or similar to fill that gap and make it smooth. Here's a quick tutorial I dug up with pictures. Here's a Massive Voodoo tutorial on miniature prep. Thanks! Ive bookmarked that page.

  18. Im taking notes so that my Fall Mini is even better. So far Ive done the Winter exchange (didnt use sealer as I was unaware of this step) , Summer exchange (where Ive learned to not let my cat be in the same room when Im working on minis and also not to use 'ardcoat on Bones mins) At a con in a discount bin I got a Reaper dire crocodile (metal) and it comes in a couple of pieces. I also have some Bones minis that come in a couple of pieces. Since you all gave me some great ideas on better sealers, I wanted to ask what do you use to assemble minis that come in pieces? I was thinking super glue but thought you all might have some better suggestions.
  19. Beware Romulans bearing gifts. *smiles* heh heh heh.
