  1. I LOVE the way the "bare metal" is shinier than the dull old paint - it really sells the whole thing - magnificently done! So paint the whole thing rusty and then put paint over the top and chip/scrape away to the rust - AWESOME - learn something new every day... That is why the paint chipping looks 3D - it is!!! I would have done it the exact opposite way and it would not have come out nearly as nice - now i know better! Thanks for the lesson and for sharing this very unique sculpt and paint job
  2. Amazing how much the highlighting brings the whole thing to life! - Great work I really want to see a wash on the metallic scales - something to darken the cracks and make them pop
  3. Great stuff - good use of nontraditional colors - i REALLY like the illusion of translucency on the wings (i wasn't sure translucency was a word, but spell check likes it!) - that little bit of subtle mottling really gives the appearance of light showing through AWESOME!
  4. I need to paint a figure for someone in my game group who has CryoHydra armor (offers protection from cold) from a Cryo Hydra that we killed and dressed and then paid to have her armor custom crafted. I am bookmarking this because it is EXACTLY what i hope my armor will end up looking like Thanks for the inspiration!
  5. always amazing to me how much life and depth people with talent can put into muted browns and grays look at the boots! they look like they have walked many miles, and a lot of them damp and miserable... how the heck can you do that with such a narrow palette??? someday i will do this along with the painting guide - that should be laughable! thanks for the inspiration
  6. i liked it already before i saw the backside... i was marveling at how brilliantly you froze a moment that captured the whole story then i saw the back and the story got ever more delicious! really nice work - a well deserved win!
  7. The only thing more incredible than the paint work is stopping to consider how much of that amazing paintwork is done in really inaccessible areas ! I know you assembled last but there are still a lot of details painted in folds and obscured spaces - i have difficulty getting one color into some areas. let alone shading and freehanding eyes!
  8. nice blends and shading! clearly you "got back into painting" with a good back catalogue of experience and skills - it shows ;)
  9. Jaw dropped and gasping for breath... WOW - that is stunning Would have never occurred to me to paint a dragon so understated - simply gorgeous!
  10. OK, i could have lived without him, but now i have to have him! Cleverly done Reaper, cleverly done... Am i the only one who enjoys tutorials for the "not having to make decisions" aspect of things? Sometimes it is nice to just do what you are told and turn your brain off....
  11. More free monthly minis??? - that is awesome !!! Pre-much gonna shoot huge hole in my New Year's resolution to paint more and spend less
  12. It's official - I've been naughty! I knew that, but i am a little creeped out about how THEY knew that ;) Thanks for making it fun to be a customer

Your order has received 1x Christmas Fairy! i decided to go with a selection of snake men - i have a temple coming sometime in 2018 and it would be nice to populate it in style!
  14. Hopefully all you rabid cat dragon fans don't get ALL the stockings... save some for those of us who want a little Joy in our lives tomorrow!
  15. Awesome - thanks that was what i was looking for Joy is exactly what i expected - and i DEFINITELY want her bad news is the dragon is bigger than i thought - which means i want him too!!!! split my order in two - for two xmas minis (sacrificing the bones stocking) - or hold out for next year... this is a fun problem to have
  16. Absolutely loving the rainbow winged beastman - very cool and unique Spiked freak is awesome too - perfect beady eyes great warband and a fantastic first post of your work!
  17. This deal is WAY too good to be true. I would feel like i was taking advantage, if it wasn't for the fact that the "Bones Stocking" got me to add $25 to my order ;) Thanks REAPER for making it fun to be a customer... 2018 is going to be soo boring :(
  18. Life is long, i am patient, and i have a LOT to paint... please include the Tinker Gnome in 2018, 2019 or even 2020 (i might be caught up by then...)! I left it up to my Santa Wife last year and she decided to get me something else without telling me ;( so i missed out on my gnome not sure which day is going to suck me in yet this year - for those in the know could you verify: Joy Winter Fairy is "medium" (ie human sized) Wrapping Dragon/Chrismas Hoard are "small" trying to align my desires with my ability
  19. yeah... that works - try it hold the dagger in your left hand Psycho style like you were about to attack the shower - as you reach your right hand back to throw the potion, the left rotates who knew?
  20. 72 hours and 41 minutes until the floodgates open and my wallet drains to ZERO! Looking forward to the triple threat of 12 days, Holiday Releases and Dec 25th Anniversary!
  21. I would really LOVE to see a metal or bones version of the Pathfinder pre painted Ranzak. This is a pirate goblin with a macaw on his shoulder - truly an awesome sculpt - just begging to be painted well - which means i'll have to buy it for someone else ;)
  22. This is very close to funding - i hope it does, cause this is too fun. I have backed a bunch of Atomico's Kickstarters - he always delivers, usually within weeks of the end of the KS. He is a super nice guy, who is doing these very small KS's jsut to get his art out to the world. Check it out and help support his dream. This may be the smallest Kickstarter you ever back!
  23. oh sure just build the hype a bit more.... you know i have chewed off all my fingernails right?
  24. I love not just the freehand, but the amazing wear and weathering on the shield - it has definitely seen many battles gorgeous paint job - inspirational
