  1. I use quite a few P3 paints, though not exclusively. They don't have the widest variety of colours. I believe that they use liquid pigments, I find that they're noticeably thinner than other brands. I find them very useful for basecoating Bones minis.
  2. Oh, he is gloriously gribbly! And the eye is incredible. Well done!
  3. That lesson being: pay attention when assembling your model, and look at how pieces fit together to see if they'll be easier to paint separately rather than glued together. The fire demon is one of my favourite minis from Bones II, but I was still very new to the hobby when I got my shipment, so after washing and drying all of the minis, I didn't give a second thought to starting to assemble them in order to keep pieces from being lost. I quickly realized that this was going to make painting certain parts of this guy difficult. I also learned that CA remover dissolves Bones material much easi
  4. Great job! This guy is currently sitting on my desk, half base-coated with a similar colour scheme. I can only hope that mine turns out even half as well!
  5. Looks like you're getting ready for a 20 Goblin Winter! Good luck!
  6. I've never seen an undead beholder mini before, and you did incredible work, especially on the central eye! I only wish that I'd had one like him when my D&D group ran into one. Fantastic!
  7. Thanks for the link. I'll definitely check it out. The steel edging is a great idea. You know, I'd never considered that. It makes a lot of sense, and I might have to give that a shot in the future. Thanks for the idea.
  8. Love the colours and the blending! Great job!
  9. The picture doesn't show it very well (my photography and lighting skills are still very lacking), but the belly scales have a pale blue shading on them. It's definitely more noticeable when seen live. But you're definitely right. I originally had them fading from an ivory into a more pure white, and when I looked at it a couple of days after I was "finished" I realized that I couldn't really notice any definition so I went back and redid it.
  10. Also finished off my Barrow Wardens. I might have gone a little heavy on the rust, but I'm still trying to get the hang of it. I might have to try thinning out the brighter rust from the Vallejo special effects so it flows into the crevaces more easily.
  11. My first dragon ever! I'm really happy with how the wings turned out.
  12. Bit of a bump. It took me a while to get around to actually trying some of these special effects - I don't seem to do a lot of painting in the summer. Anyhow, I figured that the Bronze Bull would be a good test bed for some of them. I've got a picture below. Please excuse the amateur paint job and poorly lit photo. The only thing that I have to compare the verdigris to is Vallejo's previous verdigris. I didn't look carefully when I ordered the set, and thought originally that they were just repackaging the old stuff. It's pretty apparent that this isn't the case. The old verdigr
  13. That is absolutely brilliant! I don't know which I am more jealous of - your creativity, or your painting ability.
  14. Thanks for the info. Your opinion of the chipping medium seems to be in line with the general concensus. Good to hear that the other stuff is good. I'm looking forward to playing around with it.
  15. I while back, I saw that Vallejo had released a set of paints called "Special Effects" (Link Here). They appear to be an answer to Citadel's Technical paints. I was unable to get them in Canada until they showed up at Miniature Market recently. Does anybody know how they compare to the Citadel line? I've used Vallejo's Verdigris before, but all the others in the set are new to me.
  16. A couple days late chiming in here, but I want to thank & congratulate Reaper on another phenomenal Kickstarter. I missed Bones I, but after the amount I spent on Bones II I figured that I wouldn't be backing any further Kickstarters. Reaper did a great job in (from my point of view) providing a wide range of miniatures for different genres that managed to rope me back in to pledge heavily again. Looking forward to hopefully seeing Bones 4 next year! (Skull & CrossBones? With Gnoll Pirates please?)
  17. It's interesting when you start getting close to the point when you need a larger box. For example, if I just add Goremaw to my pledge, shipping goes up by $2. If I just add Ma'aldrakar, it goes up by about $20. If I add them both, I'm at what I assume is the level that requires a larger box and the shipping goes up by $50. Sadly, this is going to mean that I won't be getting Ma'aldrakar after all. Honestly, I doubt that he ever would have gotten painted anyhow, but if through some miracle I actually finish off my other big minis like Khanjira I'll happily pay full price for multi-head
  18. More than anything else that I saw in the Reapercon pics, the worm was what grabbed me. I'm so excited to see it finally showing up, and was so happy to see that preview of it all painted up.
  19. I think you are a bit confused because he's commenting on 3 separate things in that one small blurb. 1) Showcase video is the one that's on the Kickstarter. 2) He likes all the upcoming preview pictures of the stretch goals 3) He likes the painted up figures by Proctor, Michael (under Clever Crow) has been posting them on the Forum and on his Facebook pages. Actually there is a new video on Reaper's YOUTUBE channel. It contains some teases of upcoming goals. I won't spoil them for you! WAAAAAAAAAAHHHH! EDIT: YOUTUBE, NOT FACEBOOK. sorry. What Carnacki said. Sorry I d
  20. Dang. Just saw the new showcase video. The previews for the upcoming goals are all gorgeous. And Michael Proctor's paint jobs are just stunning.
  21. Another quick question. Does anybody know how the ratio of new sculpts to old sculpts in this Kickstarter compares to in the previous campaigns?
  22. Unfortunately, everybody has different tastes, and is looking for something different. I've seen several people who (for example) were not interested in the Mythos expansion because they don't care that much about the monsters, but the investigators convinced them to pledge for it. Like I said, the investigators are not for me, but I'm not going to begrudge anybody who is excited about them. I hope that you don't think that I'm upset with Reaper because I'm not interested in a chunk of one of the expansions. Their past and current success completely shows that they know what they're doing.
