    Orc Warband Collectors by Yedharo

    I have wanted some Yedharo stuff for awhile so this is looking good to me. I'm glad to hear that they are descent sculpts.

    I think the whole core set is regular Bones but they did add a little pigment to the mix so they won't be the traditional white but will be a grey color.

    I won a Rock Troll from the Reaper Live last night

    My understanding is that all of the figures in the Bones IV core set will have the grey color but all of the expansions and some of the add ons will be the true Bone Black material.

    I'm curious how much more this campaign could have made had they announced Bones Black at the time of launch. I'm guessing Bones V will be heavy with Bones Black (hopefully with some busts)

    Great start I love the colors!

    I know it's update week but all I really want updated on is whether or not they can confirm if the last container will leave port before the CNY. If they have nothing else to update that would be fine by me as I want a little left to the imagination about the minis for when I actually open the box so I don't need anymore pictures. I think I have seen too much already.

    Very true! I don't need to be doing a bunch of making my own colors or anything like that. I take advantage of the many colors available to me from all different paint lines with light mixing so I can focus on painting and maybe very basic color theory. I don't want to need an art degree to use these.
  9. As a necromancer I love the idea of the "zombie" brush.... You should start a KS!
  10. Welcome! You should stick around if you like talking about the hobby. There are lots of miniature junkies around here and we're always up for talking painting or gaming! Its funny there was someone in the comment section of the KS saying they didnt want to post here because there is a screening process. That wasn't true when I signed up but wasn't sure if something change but I guess by seeing your post that it wasn't true. I really appreciate you sticking up for the hobby and trying to inform new painters so that they aren't duped out of their money. I thought the last points you made on the KS were excellent! I garauntee he did not try out different brushes to find the best. He found one that would put his name on it and that he could by in bulk.

    Yes definitely for miniatures... My wallet is in trouble!
  12. He may have over stretched himself there with 1200+ backer and 2 sets per backer with 8 brushes per set that is checking over 19,000 brushes! I doubt the QC will be that great if he is checking probably 20,000 brushes by the end of this and trying to meet a deadline. From the Kickstarter: This project has almost no risk because I am willing to fully fund the manufacturer to get these brushes made. This is what has allowed me to keep the goal much lower than total cost of the project. If I saw this on a project I was about to back this would be a huge red flag! There is always a risk when investing your money in an "idea" (I think you know why I put idea in quotations). Plus him being able to cover the cost of manufacturing might give a good indication on how much these brushes really cost.
  13. Finally had a nice cup of tea and was able to try my Stroopwafel. They were everything I hoped for and more! So delicious! Now I need to find somewhere I can buy them.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    I think they should maybe just stick with some resin campaigns on KS for awhile. Could help them build a fan base so that future board game projects may bring in more money. I'll tell you they are walking a thin line right now as many backers backed for the minis so If they mess those up they could be in a world of hurt in future campaigns.

    I would like to learn to paint freckles!
  16. I just think if that were the case he would have mentioned it on the campaign page. But he makes no mention of his product being unique other than white bristles which isn't unique. I guess he could just be a bad salesman though.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    Yes Limbo 1.5 is supposed to be Vikings and Dragons I believe. However, it is most definitely delayed until this one delivers (June-August) and depending on how this one turns out it could be delayed for awhile.

    Really cool! I am excited to see where this goes! Are you going to do a clear resin over the whole thing?

    Athena: FeR bust

    I do really love your step by step (for the most part ) walk through. I have some busts coming in from the Scale75 KS and I really appreciate you taking the time to teach us some tricks and tips. Skin is so complex and I am nervous to paint them especially the female's skin. I am worried that if I use too may layers and push paint around too much that the skin wont be smooth. It has worked okay for my Orc Bust but his skin does not need to be smooth like a female's. I also need to get more comfortable with the in between stages. Often times if I am not getting results right away I get discouraged so it helps to see that its just part of the process. I am getting better with this but to see that it can take a long while for results helps a lot. I always try remember what James Wappel said in a TY video to not give up on the process half way through because you wont know the final results if you give up too early. You're work here is a great example!

    Oh Yeah this isn't intimidating at all! Beautiful work! I can't wait to see more

    Metallics for classic steel

    I use Vallejo Metal Color and they have several different tones that I think are great. It's very smooth and covers really well. I am not good at painting metallics at all so take that with a grain of salt If you go with the alcohol based metallics just know they can be difficult to use and since they are alcohol based you can not thin them with water and dry VERY fast. That being said the Old Gold is probably the closest you'll get to a color match for a real gold.

    Limbo: Eternal War - June 2018

    Sounds like resin is scheduled to deliver on time so there is some good news. Unfortunately I am in for a good chunk and I am only interested in the models so hopefully the characters come out unscathed (I thought the troops were the least of all the concepts anyways). The Veronique figure looks really good though so I am holding out hope!
  23. This sounds more like Two Brush Blending. Feathering is using the same brush and color but using tiny little strokes on the hard edge to soften it. Not that this contributes much to this conversation but thought I would point it out. I think @buglips*the*goblin (I think it was him) has a thread started where he went over a bunch of definitions and things that apply to the hobby that can be really helpful to new and experienced painters alike

    Oh I have faith in Reaper I just worry about the shippers holding up their end.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I just hope we get an update on when the container has officially left China so that we know if it left before Chinese New Year because that could push us back into a May delivery. Chinese New Year is early so it will be close! Hopefully when they say it's supposed to ship the first of February that they mean February 1st! (By they I mean whoever is doing the shipping)
