  1. No. They only announced the winners from Q1 yesterday. The winner will need to choose the mini for Q2. I don't know when it will start but hopefully soon.
  2. Sounds like the Reaper Diorama category. As long as you have at least one large Reaper mini, it is fine to have non-Reaper as well.
  3. They did it once. I personally think it was less visible. It was harder to share, people had to sign up for a Reaper account to vote, there was some issues with the format and layout. I mean, no matter where the contest is, there will be people who don't use that platform whether it is discord, twitter, or whatever. The quarterly contest has been on facebook for years.
  4. Thank you! I painted the earth scion. Maybe I didn't post photos here. For skintone, if you are having trouble with darker skin turning out too light, make sure you are choosing darker, richer colors for the skin. After highlighting, I go back with either my midtone or my first shadow color and glaze over the whole skin. It really helps smooth the blends and ties all of your skin colors together. Do a light glaze so you don't totally kill your highlights or muddy it up. You can always glaze more if needed.
  5. Thank you! Yes, the scales threw me and I wasn't sure what to do with them. So I just chose a color and went with it!
  6. Cool mini to paint. I think he has a Jason Mamoa vibe going on.
  7. I get if they want to change "Dancing Girl" to "Human Bard". Ok, fine. But changing Nemesra to Nesmera, just why? I wonder if that is what it is on the card now or if it is a mistake on the store. Every online shop I checked when I googled, has the metal one listed still as "Nemesra". As mentioned above, some consistency needs to be maintained in names and keywords because you just about can't find things on the store unless you know the exact name or sku. Keep changing the names and nobody will find anything.
  8. The bases are 3d printed. The design is on the base, you just have to try to color between the lines! I discovered that if I was very careful, the aqua color is ink and it would just flow into the cracks. Painting the white first and then carefully applying ink to where I wanted the aqua worked great! Any mistakes though, ugh! Had to wait for the ink to dry and then try to get the white paint to cover!
  9. These are wonderful! Great job!
  10. I was trying to find the SKU for Nemesra, Dancing Girl in metal in the store and could not find it. Looking it up by name did not work, looking it up by "dancing" or "dancing girl" did not work. I googled it and was able to find a link to it where I discover it is called "Human Bard, Nesmera". However, the identical Bones mini is still called "Nemesra, Dancing Girl". Is the name on the metal one a mistake? It makes no sense to call the metal and Bones versions completely different things when they are the same miniature. It also makes it incredibly difficult to find things in the store when the search already does not seem to recognize keywords the way it used to. I am hoping it is just a typo in the store (at least her name part as "Human Bard" is not a misspelling of "Dancing Girl") and it will be fixed so people searching for Nemesra or Dancing Girl can find the mini because she's a great mini and fun to paint in both the metal and Bones materials. 03767 and 77668 are the numbers.
  11. I am not sure why the metal mini's name was changed on the store page. I couldn't even find her doing a search on the store but Google came through. Anyway, I painted the metal and the Bones versions. I sent the metal one as part of my Secret Sophie and kept the Bones one for myself. The metal one turned out the best but I think they both look nice.
  12. I painted this wraith as part of my Secret Sophie. I worked forever on the sword and it finally clicked and I ended up pretty proud of it.
  13. Yay! I can't wait for you to open it! I hope everything survived!!
  14. Tracking says the package is onboard for delivery so my recipient should be getting a delivery very soon!!!!
  15. He's fantastic! I love the colors and that nice blend you got on his neck/chin bubble!
