  1. Working on all eight of the gnolls (highland gnoll from "Thank You" included). Cursing how elusive the color of hyenas' fur is.
  2. I did my first boiling last night. Got a little too eager with the tongs (for I have no sieve) and ended up warping some bases... not beyond usefulness, but noticeably. Aside from the bases, everything else went well. The weapons I wanted unbent did a pretty good job of correcting themselves, and I also got a bit creative... One of my four identical Gnoll Warriors arrived accidentally warped into a different pose, and not an "I'm falling flat on my face" pose, but an actually usable pose. Inspired by that, I used the boiling/cooling process to reposition the weapon arms of two others, so
  3. I love the freehand on the abdomen of the tick queen. Looks great
  4. Oy. Spent all day painting gnoll fur. Got the bright idea to do all eight of the Bones II gnolls (including the Thank You pack's highland gnoll, which turns out to have been sculpted in an almost entirely different style) in one go. And decided to mix up different colors so that no two would have identical shades of fur. Already regretting my ambition (and some of my color choices).
  5. This is probably not the best time to point this out, with Reaper still in the throes of the shipping frenzy (and me posting at the tail end of the weekend to boot), but a while back when people were talking about the learn to paint kits (or kit, rather, since only the one is currently available) I tried to find it and had a tricky time doing so. It's listed in the Bones section along with all the other Bones minis, and it comes up if you search "kit" and only "kit," but "learn to paint," "learn to paint kit," "learn to paint bones," and "learn to paint bones kit" bring up no results. It's als
  6. I did check there and found a couple articles that touched on it in passing, but none to the level of detail of this post, which is pretty much exactly what I was looking for when I asked the question. (Thank you very much, Bruunwald, and everyone else who's replied as well!) I think I've got the gist of it now, but thank you! That candle trick sounds familiar, I might've heard that one before, but I don't think I would've remembered it without your reminder. Hm, I didn't even think to look for videos. I'm a fast reader, and video tutorials often feel torturously slow compare
  7. I like that color scheme a lot, particularly how well the varying greens work together, but I think it could look even nicer if the horns/teeth/claws weren't such a bright white. This is a big dragon, an old dragon, and one who's seen enough action to pick up that war wound of his, and I feel like that pure white looks a little too clean for him. I feel like a bone or ivory would work better.
  8. I love how beady the eyes are. They're reminiscent of some photos I've seen of spiders. I'm surprised how well the pink works with this color scheme, but it's really effective. Great job all round!
  9. I'm sorry. I tried to avoid that, but I only looked in this forum for older threads, I guess the older topics might've been placed somewhere else. Now I feel like a tool. And not the useful kind. Thanks for the advice, though!
  10. So, this... isn't exactly about conversion, at least not necessarily, but "assembly" doesn't seem to really fit in any of the forum's categories. My apologies in advance to the moderators if I should've put this somewhere else. So, here's the thing... I've never assembled a multi-part metal model. Single piece metals I've dealt with, multi-part plastic I've dealt with, resin I've... done a little with, but multi-piece metal? Never. And all the Work-in-Progress threads I've seen for them have frankly kind of terrified me. Pretty much everyone I've seen talking about pinning, here and on ot
  11. Not 100% sure why the whole thread would be purged, but that's probably related to their (understandable) desire to avoid dealing with errors and complaints until after initial shipping is complete.
  12. Just finished a detailed inventory. There are so many minis in the Core Set that the heroes kind of blur together for me, but I do believe there is not a single error or omission in my set. Thank you very much, Reaper! (And ladystorm in particular, for pulling my order! ) I do have a lot of boiling ahead of me... my extra Sophie, in particular, is bent backward at least 30 degrees from normal at her ankles. Fixable, but I was taken aback when I first saw it. Poor girl.
  13. There's already been a separate thread about this (because someone couldn't identify the part), but the little anglerfish bit on this guy's forehead seems to love to pop off, and it's a TINY piece, and he's packed in with one of the big Core Set bags, so be veeeery careful about checking the bottom of the bag he comes in.
  14. Mine just arrived! So excited! It's definitely Christmas.
