  1. Thanks to reaper staff, fellow volunteers, and, of course, attendees for making this year's PAX West paint and take an enjoyable experience! To anyone I had the chance to chat with for awhile, feel free to get in touch to connect. Especially enjoyed catching up with Darsc. You're good people, Darsc.
  2. As I mentioned, I tried a more brownish toned solution just to experiment. After some different tries, I found I liked this combination: first drybrush - 29829 golden brown second drybrush - 29826 desert tan third drybrush - 29825 tusk ivory However, in the end, I prefer the grey-tone solution above.
  3. I've settled on using HD dirty grey (29835) for a first coat and then stained ivory (09142). I'm happy with the results. I also used spattered crimson (09277) on a few tiles to create a couple blood splattered walls/floors. I'll probably experiment with something a little more brown in the future, too. Happy painting, everyone!
  4. You mentioned thinking about a different color set after the fact. What color(s) were you thinking about? Happen to have any pics of the stone gray / dry bone ? To confirm, that's Stone Grey (9086) bone...? Bone Shadow (9058) Aged Bone (9059) Polished Bone (9060)
  5. What MSP colors would anyone recommend for painting Dwarven Forge's dungeon tiles? I know they sell their own paint, but I was interested in MSP choices. thanks
  6. Thanks for the ideas. Leaves me with somewhat the same question as water and matte medium, tho: how much of those additives makes for a good wash?
  7. I found a formula for washes ages ago, but haven't been very successful with it. Since then, I have been trying to discover my own variation, but haven't found the right combination yet. Mostly typically, my issue is that although the paint pools the way I want it, after it dries, it just looks like a messy smudge instead of remaining in the recesses they way I want. (Hope that description makes sense). (When I say formula, I just mean X drops of medium to Y drops of paint. Or X drops of msp sealer to Y drops of paint. Or whatever). So, I'm very interested to hear what others have done to get their washes to be well-behaved; specifically if you use MSP (since that's what I have access to). I realize that for many of you, its just second nature and you just thin the paint until it looks right and bob's your uncle. But maybe you can remember what you started with before you got it down? Thanks for your feedback.
  8. I think it was a valuable addition to the process. I only had to repeat it a few times and was growing tired of it, so its hard to imagine what it was like for you. We probably could have put signs on the tables, but then people tend to ignore signs. :/
  9. Hi Ian! I was wondering... I'm trying to get paint out of my bottle and nothing seems to be coming out. Do you have any tips? I was thinking about just squeezing as hard as I can. ... And where am I supposed to put my brush when I'm done?
  10. I just wanted to wave my hand to the other Pax Prime volunteers. Although I remember most everyone's names, I don't have a good mapping to their forum names. So maybe everyone can say "hi" back and I'll be able to figure out who's who...? Had a great time. Great to work with others passionate about Reaper. And I was super impressed to be with such a hard working crew. Also, if i should have posted this somewhere else, sorry about that.
  11. not positive what the top three are, but Boerogg Blackrime is definitely in there. I'll update this post with the other two when i figure them out. http://www.reapermini.com/miniatures/warlord/latest/14599
  12. Boy it looks terrible big. I replace the images with some smaller thumbnail-sized ones soon. Sorry about that everyone. :/ edit: done
  13. I hope they have fixed the glue issue that I experienced with the paint cases http://www.reapermini.com/forum/index.php?/topic/46294-reaper-paint-case-review/?hl=case
