  1. Your circle looks fantastic! I use the woodland scenic sprayer tho mine is clogged right now... when it works it's great.
  2. Love. I think green looks good on him, the mouth and belly area are fabulous
  3. You've been on a roll. It look a great so far. Concrete grey has a blue undertone to it straight out the bottle. I like the new bones mountain stone quite a bit for those looking for less blue grey.
  4. That rust looks fantastic. I'll need to pick up some of that paint in the near future.
  5. I think it'll hold up fine. When you attach the mini, just attach it so that most of the fig is on the thicker part.
  6. She looks wonderful and so does the base. I can't imagine what you wouldn't like about that awesome base.
  7. She turned out great! Awesome job matching the inspiration
  8. Noooo! Bad goremaw, drop it. I said drop it!
  9. Do you mean the temple dragon? I don't recall the type of dragon being specified. Paint it up as what ever dragon that pleases you. Mines going to be a green dragon to go along with the plant theme.
  10. Beautiful. I think the various blues look fantastic on her and her expression is perfect, great job on her eyes.
  11. I use that stuff quite a bit. The thinned white glue or modge podge trick should work just fine for it. Just saturate the cork with it, let it dry and you should be good to go.
  12. Pic would help. Are we talking cork sheet? How thick is the cork? What mini? Is it a heavier metal mini or light bones or resin mini? May just be a matter of supergluing another piece on top of what you have. I've used thinned modge podge to act as reinforcement. It kind of just soaks in and when it's dry does a good job of solidifying the cork. Are you planning on pinning the mini to the cork or just gluing it? I recommend pinning. Just shove whatever your using as a pin into the cork, put a drop of superglue, then the modge podge slurry. Then I just put a dab ofsuperglue on the pin and shove the mini down on to it. I'm not real delicate. Lol. Make sure you've put a hole long enough for the pin in the bottom of the mini first. That might be obvious to you but I just thought I'd mention it.
  13. It's a joy to view, fantastic work as usual.
  14. Metal minis are pretty simple to work with. You'll be fine. What files are you using? A good set of micro files is all you really should need to file down the mold lines. A good pair of sprue cutters will take care of any flash. As long as your careful not to file to hard, I wouldn't worry to much about ruining your figure. Just pay attention to your angle and pressure. One of my first minis has no nose cause I wasn't paying attention to the angle I was filing. Prep them like like any other material. A good scrub with warm soapy water. Rinse well, let dry and prime.
  15. Why oh why didn't I order this! Regrets. I'll live vicariously through everyone's awesome WIPs til retail I suppose. Looking forward to seeing what you do with him.
  16. I like your approach. I'm planning on something similar with mine. *pulls up a chair, grabs some popcorn.
  17. I use the acrylic nail polish racks. Just buy them, you won't regret it. I need more though...I gave one to the hubby for paints. Think I'll go order a couple more now in fact.
