  1. I think I will be ordering a wide range of liners.
  2. Thinned liner, I don't recognize that term. Can you clarify?
  3. Thanks, do you clean the bones minis with soap and water before working on them? A lot of modelers do this to all of there minis before they start. I myself have never done that and have never had problems whether it is a plastic or metal model. I will look for an acrylic primer and try that.
  4. Hello all, I have been model making for a long time. I just ran into an issue with the bones line of minis. I cleaned as much of the flash I could get off of the minis, then I used a hobby specific super glue to attach a base to the minis. Then I primed the minis and base with a spray enamel primer. Then I used a combination of Reaper, Vallejo and craft (Delta, Amercana and such) acrylic paints on the minis. No problem so far. I gave them a general wash of dark burnt umber and then dry brushed them, these are acrylic products as well. I then added a mixture of flocking and static grass on the base. I applied two coats of dull coat and called it good. A week later we got out the minis for the first time to use in a Savage world campaign and they were fine. Two weeks later we played the same campaign but when we got out the minis from the foam carrying case I noticed the minis were a little gloomy and slightly sticky. I'm thinking something leached through the paint to the surface. Has this happened to anyone? If so any ideas how to fix it?
  5. Hi all, sorry that I've been quiet. Been working on minis for a long arc game I'm playing in. I will try and post some of minis soon.
  6. I am now live. Here is the link to my first Kickstarter. Any pledges would be most appreciated. Thanks. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1477271631/scale-realms-rpg-maps-and-plans-by-jeff-james
  7. Hello, I'm Jeff James with Scale Realms RPG Maps and Plans. I'm launching my first Kickstarter tomorrow, March 2, 2015 and I hope you will take the time to check it out. I will posting a link to the Kickstarter when it goes live. I will be creating high quality maps for use in RPG scenarios.
  8. It's going to be hard keeping up with all of you. I will add some pictures of some of my minis, it would be great to hear what you think, good or bad. I really learn more from mistakes though.
  9. Sorry but I gave up dancing when I got married.
  10. Thanks for the quick responses to my questions. You all have been very helpful.
  11. Just wanted to introduce myself, my name Jeff James and I have been painting minis for about a year now. They are quite a bit harder to paint than I thought. I'm a RPG map maker as well, but that is another story. I also have a couple of questions about the Reaper Bones line of minis. Does anyone have a reliable method for cleaning up flash on the minis? And is there a method for straightening the plastic that the minis are made of? Thanks.
