  1. Are Oathsworn models melt table safe?
  2. Thanks for the kind words. Regarding the satiny robes, funny story there. I was checking my work with a look at a gray scale picture and the Ultramarine shadow I started with was super glossy. It more or less showed me where the highlights needed to be if I wanted to achieve that look. Given how much is going on with the robe I figured going shiny would sell "expensive fabric" while being miles easier than trying to freehand something. Regarding the cloak, I actually screwed up the intended pattern. I noticed it early enough that I was at least able to be consistent about it, so rather than being the "wrong" pattern it's just a "different" pattern. It was nerve wracking to do, having based the pattern in black, which I then had to go over in color, and then shade and highlight THAT.
  3. I painted a Darksword Dragonkin mage as an Aurak draconian for my Dragonlance games. I'd wanted to play with a spell effect for a different project and wanted something that would paint up pretty quick. Digging through my stuff I found this fellow. He was perfect. Robe, cloak, not a lot of doodads. Well, I couldn't leave well enough alone, and Darksword stuff lends itself so well to embellishment, that I ended up working the hell out of him. Everything was done with Reaper paints, especially the metals from the Pathfinder boxes, the ultramarine triad (shaded with nightmare black, highlighted up to ghost white), and the royal purples (since I always work those in). Comments and criticism are very welcome. I'm still trying to score a silver or higher at Reapercon. Criticism I got last time focused a lot on my color choice and composition, so I'm hoping that has improved a bit.
  4. Nicely done working the base in with the bloodstains.
  5. Lessee, good things. More time with the Wife, who has been working from home (I lawyer from home, so the big change is a lack of court dates for the foreseeable). Gaming has gone online, so while my models aren't seeing use I'm getting to play with friends who are much more distant. I've actually been playing twice a week. I asked the Wife if maybe that wasn't too much and the response was, "I see you all day, every day now. It's nice to be able to sew by myself." We're baking more, but the yeast shortage locally (or is it nationally?) means that flat breads and beer breads are the order of the day. I tend to find that the cheap, less than a dollar a can beers from Trader Joe actually work best for this. Seems foolish to waste the good stuff, anyway. I'm having longer phone conversations with people. Again, it's nice to connect with friends I wasn't able to regularly see in the Before Times. So, a lot more contact with folks from out of state, or two counties away.
  6. Signed up for few things on GrowTix, but I'm absolutely down for a pick up game of D&D or Frostgrave.
  7. I'm due in at DFW at 1:30 on Wednesday and need to get back to DFW sometime on Sunday (staying at a hotel near the airport and heading home early on Monday). Happy to split costs with anybody.
  8. Since cat folk are apparently a thing, can we get a tiger like mage that I can use as a rakshasa?
  9. Weirdly, I loved my coal. It's one of the best eraser's I've ever owned and I keep it in my dice chest (a mimic made of leather my friend made me).
  10. You're talking about product liability. You can get compensation* under a warranty theory if the balls were sold specifically for this purpose. Note that the warranty can be either in writing or verbal and the verbal controls over written if the sales person makes additional promises (the sales person recommends a hammer drill in place of a dremel tool and you ruin an antique). So, if these were sold as agitators and intended for placement in paint you might get a recovery. The problem is that your recovery would be about ten bottles of paint, not worth your time to go to small claims court. Mind, you have to prove the promise. They sold ball bearings and said nothing about this use then your out of luck. *well, maybe, I'm not product liability attorney and I'm not _your_ product liability attorney and this isn't legal advice. To be clear, it would be worth your time to email the company and ask for the replacement value of the paint if there is warranty liability.
  11. I would love to see an oversized weapon pack. Things like swords for ogres and the like.
  12. It was my first con, too, and I have to say how much I loved the community. As someone who went without knowing anyone else there it was nice to be able to just pick a table and make friends in minutes. Not every fan-dom works that way so it's important to count this particular blessing. I don't think I heard one unsupportive comment in my time there. Lastly, OneBoot was wonderful (I was in her TMM class).
  13. Good job. Personally, I had to struggle not to practice doing sheer cloth on mine. Wife thought that joke might wear thin before too long.
  14. Putting in a vote for Rakshasas (well, one, really, not often I need multiples of them). Also, dark fairies. Things like Queen Mab.
  15. 60mm would be a bit on the large side. I like the sea lion suggestion and I have a pile of orcs that get no where near enough love (no orcs in Dragonlance, sadly). I can probably start tinkering with those suggestions. Thank you kindly.
