  1. I believe that there is. On the last 2 streams they kept telling people that they should ask certain questions during Reaper Live.
  2. Bones 5 mini shown on Reaper Toolbox Stream. I am not big on the underwater stuff, but I do like the looks of this figure.

    Pre-Launch Bones 5 Excitement thread

    At 8 this morning my computer told me it needed an update. I have 4 hours till the Kickstarter starts. Let's get it done. Nearly 3 hours later it is still at 27%. Guess I am going to have to pledge using my phone.

    Dust Tactics: Axis Zombies

    I wanted to do some more work on these figures but my weekend was taken up by an out-of-town wedding, and I started this week with a tumble down some stairs that left my wrists too sore to do any painting. The fall happened while I was on my downstairs to do some painting. I guess that I was too excited to paint that my feet thought that I could skip the last stair. I have recovered and was able to return to this project. Here are a couple of photos of the zombies after the washes finished drying. I did a little bit of highlighting with the original Moldy Skin color. Overall I felt that wash turned out well and that I did not need to overdue the highlight. I felt that my first figure was overly highlighted and went back in with the wash to darken it back down. I followed this with some dragon black that I had thinned down into a wash. I used this color on the eyes and around the teeth. I then used Spectral White on the eyes and the teeth. I am pretty happy with how the eyes turned out. I then used a dark red (which I can't remember the name of) for the inside of the mouths and around the gums. It is not really noticeable, but I feel like it added a nice touch. I did have to go back in with some of the spectral white to touch-up the teeth. I am down to highlighting the jumpsuit, a bit of work on the bases, and some odds and ends. Overall these have been fun to work on, and I am excited that they are nearly complete. I hope I can keep the momentum up and continue to complete some other projects.

    Dust Tactics: Axis Zombies

    I found some time last night to do a little bit of painting. I started by giving the boots a quick drybrush of oiled Leather. For the next step, I applied a drybrush of Saffron Sunset. The goal was to add some texture so that after a wash, it would look like worn leather. For that reason, I was ok with being a bit sloppy. Next came a wash using Secret Weapon Miniatures Baby Poop. I used it on the boots and the skin. It is a greenish-brown wash that works great for things that you want to look a bit disgusting. Before I called it a night, I gave their jumpsuits a wash that was mostly Secret Weapon Miniatures Soft Body Black with a couple of drops of blue from a sample bottle I got from Reaper. As you can see, the wash was still wet when I took the photos. I will add a photo of them dry once I get home from work. Since I had some wash leftover, I also applied some of both washes to the metal plating on the bases. I like the look of them.

    Dust Tactics: Axis Zombies

    I do like the look of these figures as well and am excited to make some progress on them. I got the cup in a Reapercon Swag Bag. I have got some work done on these figures, but I failed to update this WIP. I did document the process, so here is what I have done so far. I started with dry brushing Charred Brown on the metal gauntlets. This was flowed by stippling some Rusty Red on them. I then used a piece of packing foam to apply some orange and followed by some yellow. I can't recall the exact colors used. Next, I stippled on some cold iron. I made sure that I did not cover all of the rust texture that I had created. I followed this with a wash of Steel Wash and Brown Ink. Once that dried, I applied a highlight of cold iron and Honed Steel. I felt pretty good with their rusty gauntlets. So I began base coating the rest of the figures. I used Moldy Skin for the flesh. Ruddy Leather for the shoes and a Blueish Grey Color from the CAV line for the jumpsuits. I am happy that I am finding some time to get back to painting and am pleased with the progress. I will say that I did notice my brush control was a little rusty when I was doing the highlights. Hopefully, that will improve with practice.
  7. Between moving and starting a new job this spring, there has not been a lot of time for painting. Plus there was the time taken to inventory Bones IV. I want to try and establish a more regular painting routine, and I thought I would start with some figures that I could do quickly. Several years ago, I purchased some Axis Zombies for the Dust Tactics game. I had no interest in playing the game, but I liked several figures from the range. Last night I did some quick mold line removal (not too worried if I missed some) and gave them a quick coat of primer. I am hoping to get started on them this evening.

    Thanks. I was experimenting with glazing using some ink, and I wanted to see how it would affect the color that I used for the stripes. They turned out pretty well.

    Thank you for your kind words. I had a lot of fun with this project.
  11. The inspiration for this project is a cartoon that hangs in the main office at the historic site I work at. I converted Borin Ironbrow (07011) to make a better fit for the figure and painted it in the same color scheme as the cartoon. The wip can be found here. Overall I had a lot of fun with this project and am happy with how it turned out. Here is the cartoon: And here is the figure:
