  1. I can't believe the series is still going! I stopped reading it over a decade ago, the cast of characters was almost completely different from the starting novels.
  2. I've pinned stuff approximately 1.5 millimeters thick before and it's EXTREMELY fiddly. Also if you do pin and don't run the pin all the way to the parasol it will just break above the pin later. Generally for pinning I like to use dress makers pins as they are hard to bend. I would replace the pole from the hand to the parasol. If you are worried about brass rod bending then use tubing as it is less likely to bend.
  3. @Egg of CootFinally someone else that likes ASF!
  4. Eerrm....That orange X1 is neither rare nor a tournament version. It is the standard version of X1 that came with the Mentzer expert box set.
  5. HA HA! This thread just made me go check the brushes that came in my "Layer Up!" LTPK. The package is printed with Kolinsky sable on it but the brushes are Pro brushes. Never noticed that before. I have two full sets of Reaper Kolinsky brushes that were purchased from an online seller nearly a decade ago. In my experience the quality is totally hit or miss. All my brushes are taken care of extremely well. I also have Winsor & Newton series 7 and Da Vinci and have no problems with those. I will recommend anything from Reaper with the exception of their brushes.
  6. If you just need to fill a gap use GS. If it needs a good fit for structural integrity use Milliput.
  7. I'm almost completely positive that the dark patina you are showing is actually gray automotive primer. The stuff is a complete nightmare to remove and a lot of people used it back in the day. Also, pure lead miniatures rarely if ever come out that shiny after stripping.
  8. I have a complete AD&D Grenadier Gold Line all bought on ebay within the last seven years. I stripped them all with Simple Green or Pinesol. Pinesol was used for enamels and stubborn paint. All were primered on EVERY bare surface after stripping and cleaning. I still examine the ones that haven't been painted yet on a yearly basis. Pingo and Doug pretty much covered everything else you need to know.
  9. I finally completed my Sophie miniature collection with the impossible to get miniatures! Truthfully I didn't think it would ever happen.
  10. You can see pictures of bare metal minis at the DSM website. They are at the bottom of the page for the mini you are looking at. Some also show the concept art.
  11. The yellow in my set was fine. I do have a color bought from a retailer that sounds like that. I think it was subjected to extreme temps.
  12. Maybe they could offer a promotional triad or two during the twelve days of christmas instead?
  13. At this point the thrill of the hunt is looking more like a quest for the white hart.
  14. @OneBoot I have the same mixer. The attachments should lock in place. There should be a definite click when you push it down on the post. Also, Thank you. You made me realize I left mine plugged in last night, something I don't like to do.
  15. Split-shot fishing sinkers here also. The ones I use are made of tin.
  16. Vallejo has transparent paints that are similar to Reaper's paints and truly clear like Tamiya. With the exception of some additives all the rest of my paints are Reaper.
  17. Not so much errors as poor organization. 09754 is listed before 09753 and 09770 before 09769. Also the numbering convention used for the single paints changes repeatedly in various spots. Not a huge deal I just hope Reaper doesn't use this list as the basis for any new ones in the future.
  18. It has nothing to do with the retired stock numbers or any of them being re-released. It wasn't even obvious to me at first but I use my sheet to tell which of the four cases they are in. If I have time tonight I'll post specifics but the omissions are the new liners and washes 09307-09312.
  19. I don't know if anyone else noticed but the sheet from the KS has multiple errors and six omissions. The errors are with stock numbers mostly.
  20. Holy Carp!!! I had these things when I was a little kid,I'm 48 now. There is supposed to be a white plastic mesh screen with them. The pegs are slightly smaller than the mesh hole. You were supposed to make pictures with them. Kind of like analog pixels if you will. These were one of my favorite toys when i was little.
  21. IMO Noble Knight prices for OOP miniatures tends to be on the extreme high end.
