Instigator (4/8)



  1. That's a great, expressive face. 🙂 It can be hard to take photos of real dogs with all-black faces, so especially nice to see how well you captured this!
  2. My first thought was that the base needed a little more "something." Does it make sense to say the utter plainness of the base draws attention when it shouldn't? I think adding to the base to create an environment for the creature will actually make the aboleth stand out more, especially if you choose colors that make the green on the creature "pop" more. Because the actual paint job on the aboleth is great! 🙂
  3. Honestly, I use crafts paints almost exclusively on stone terrain pieces. As mentioned, it's cheaper, but it also tends to be thicker and so nice for drybrushing bigger pieces (which is mostly what I do for those).
  4. I really like the whole gamut of villagers Reaper has made available. I love the fact the fact that you've made them each distinct, and included some nice color. Inspires me to sit down and do a "paint all the villagers" session. It looks like so much fun. 🙂
  5. Really like the muddy hem of the cloak. The clothing overall looks really appropriate and ratty. Good job!
  6. These are all great suggestions! Thanks, everybody! I'm not planning to try lenses -- I'll be happy enough to just have frames. And they don't need to be particularly visible at table distance. It's good enough that the player can pick him up to see they are there. 🙂 So I think I'll try bending the wire, assuming I can find a gauge small enough. I'll let you know how it goes!
  7. Not really painting related, but wasn't sure where else would be more appropriate to ask this. 🙂 I'm working on minis for the PCs in my current game. One of them is a nearsighted paladin who has recently acquired a pair of spectacles (actually Eyes of Minute Seeing). I'd like to represent that on the mini, if possible, but have discovered that 28mm scale glasses are really, really, really small! LOL! So I was wondering if anyone else had tried this and had some suggestions about how I could proceed. Or, barring that, any suggestions where I might be able to find eyeglasses as an "accessory" (the way we can get weapon or other prop sprues). Thanks, everyone!
  8. Really like the "land dragon" look! I didn't get this dragon because I didn't like the overall look -- but she's a cool terrestrial beast. Now I'm sorry I don't have her! 🙂
  9. This. You can find clear tubing either at a pet store, or sometimes at places like Home Depot. I like that I can cut it to whatever length I want, and get whatever diameter I need for my brushes. And it's cheap!
  10. You are absolutely NOT the only person who prefers anatomically "realistic" dragons! The beauty of Julie Guthrie's dragons has always been her ability to include the little touches of musculature and anatomy that make you believe this thing could really exist somewhere. (I don't mean to imply that Julie is the only one who sculpts beautiful dragons, but I do tend to like her sculpts quite a lot.) Like you, I see "partial" wing structure on a creature and I think, "Oh no! Poor baby! Get him to a rehabber!!"
  11. This is blasphemy! One does not get "bored" of dragons, sir! 😉
