  1. Good examples to look at will be Sci-fi wargaming. It's used on clothing and guns ALL-THE-TIME. 


    Look up 

    Infinity Miniatures


    Here is an example of what I mean.




    I found if you look at enough examples you can get a grasp of it enough to try it a few times, fail a few times, then start to understand it. And Infinity Miniature painters tend to use it for everything.

  2. Hmm, I think my intent when I buy them is not practice but it ends up being practice. I found that if I just go looking for a miniature to paint with no desire to paint it the practice would turn sour. BUT, if I like it and want to do something with it then it's fine and I enjoy it. There have only been one or two miniatures I really didn't enjoy painting... And they were Hero Forge miniatures. LOL.


    I'm working on a wizard right now and I when I started I said I would do it in a couple of hours. I guess I tricked myself cause I got all the blocking in and a few sections done. I'm a couple+ weeks into it and still working on detailing and enjoying it. Mind you that is not everyday.

    Keep in mind that they still haven't fulfilled (fully or at all) the following projects:  Dark Souls, Resident Evil, and God Tear.  RE and God Tear haven't even started, and now they added another to their plate.  Just a FYI.


    As to "just the minis."  I understand what you mean, but I personally don't want to promote the behavior of a crappy, underdeveloped game for the sake of minis.  The game needs work from what they have shown me, and they are banking on the minis. If it is described as a boardgame, the GAME should be the most important part.


    Wow, that is some mess of a kickstarter lay out there. Hmmmm Thanks for the info.

    There's an envelope in the box to accumulate funds for those who need to ship international.  Since your the tail of the circuit, and you are sending back to me, I'm fine with your conscious and goodwill being the guide.  Any money that is in the box when it makes it back to me will be held to assist with international shipping on round 8.



    Roger that. I will pop in some money for you. :)

    As for our Box.


    I like the element of surprise.

    Most of you know what kind of projects I run, but I'm always up for other things as well.


    The ones that come after me, any preferences?

    Can't promise anything, but I have something in the desired style I will include it.


    I'm kind of prone to looking for Sci-fi thugs and things like that but I do enjoy the surprise as well.



    Not sure how to contribute to internal funds but I dont mind popping in $5 to help.

    People have commented on the quality of the picture of my web-cam, so I looked it up and here it is....

        Logitech HD Pro Webcam C910

    Also, it has a microphone built into it, so headset or standing mike not needed.

    seems kind of expensive, but mine was a gift....






    Edit---> it seems that the mike may be overly sensitive, as I am being blamed for feed back issues....

    (I have since switched to an old boom mike, and the problem seems to have gone away....

    Are the feed back issues happening when I am not on? curious to know,,,)


    I was thinking of getting one of those 922 cameras. I've been recommended the 922 a few times.

    You have our thoughts and prayers and a message/request on the white board on our room door.

    I'll keep her in my thoughts.  And wishes of peace and comfort to both of you.



    Thanks again everyone. It was a good trip and I'm glad I went. She seems to be doing better right now.

    My current routine:

    • Put parchment on bottom while saturating, sponge on top
    • Pour boiling water on it (this is one thing I do that virtually no one else does)
    • Let water do it's job of fully saturating paper (essentially I let it cool down)
    • Flip it right side up (expect plenty of splashiness, which is why I do it in the kitchen sink)
    • Pour out excess water.
    • Leave enough water so you still feel the weight of the water in the sponge and it barely pools when you tip it.

    For the paper itself, I still use the original wet palette paper (which I believe works best for heavier/thicker acrylic paints), *AND* I use a smaller sheet of baking parchment. It gives me a good compromise of not too little/not too much wetness.


    I don't know if it's my environment that's favourable, but if I leave my wet palette closed with its lid on, I can come back weeks later and the paint is still good, and still mould free. I'm talking about ignoring it during sweltering heat waves during summer. When I travel, I rinse out my papers and paint still runs off under the slightest touch.




    Boiling water? Hmmm My guess is that works well for the original paper that comes with it but not so well for baking parchment? What's the advantage of using boiling water? I do like the idea of putting the parchment paper under the sponge for a minute. 

    I rinse and clean everything. Then put water in the palette with the sponge. After that I set my water to hot and run the baking parchment under it from and back until it stops curling. I lay it on the sponge and smooth out the air bubbles and it's done. Pouring the excess water of course. 


    I too keep the top on it and I put an old penny in it and it last for weeks.
