    Washes vs. Inks vs. Liners

    For those of you that use liner as the primer / base coat, do most use the brown liner?

    Reaper Brushes

    Wow, great info everyone, thanks! I think for starting out I'll probably go with 1 or 2 Pro Brush synthetic brushes to start - lower price and I have a Reaper gift certificate :) After reading all of the above, it sounds like I may switch to the much better brushes soon enough! OK, so, can anyone explain the sizes? I get that 2 is the largest, then 1, then down to 0, but what are the other sizes I see (5/0, 3/0?) If I get just 1 (maybe 2) brushes to start, what size would you recommend?

    Bones IV pre-launch & news

    So 'this summer' is as close as we have so far it seems. That means sometime between now and ... the end of August maybe? When is GenCon? Oooh! It would be kind of clever if it launches on July 4th with a patriotic theme of some kind ...

    HI Lauren! Sorry, I didn't catch the name of the person who gave me the basics, but it was a man, so it wasn't you :) It was on Sunday afternoon, if that helps. In any case, the Paint and Take certainly did its job, at least in my case, because I definitely want to jump into the hobby now! :)

    So, a couple follow up questions for those that use a liner as a base coat / primer ... 1 - If you do use it, why? I know Reaper is pretty firm that bones do not need primed and that Reaper paint works great directly onto the bones material (that's how I was shown at the PaizoCon paint and take and it did work with no issues 2 - when using the liner like this, do you thin it with water or brush it on without thinning? I've seen both methods described and I'd to figure out which way is best thanks!!!

    Excellent point on the long wait time - I hadn't thought about that! I'll take a look at the Learn to Paint kits!

    Bones IV pre-launch & news

    Hey everyone! New forum member, second post :) As I mentioned in my inaugural post here on these forums, I painted my first ever bones mini (first ever mini period, actually) at Reaper's paint and take at PaizoCon a few weeks ago and had a blast! The mini turned out pretty well too, and now I'm addicted and want to jump in to the hobby:) As someone new to painting bones, I plan on waiting for this Kicksrarter to buy a good selection of minis, paints etc. My hope is that Reaper remembers that, even though this will be the fourth bones Kickstarter, there will still be plenty of new folks jumping in :) Specifically, I hope they offer a good set of core paints at a good price for those of us that don't currently have any! I checked out the previous Kickstarter and it looked like the paint sets offered were more like expansion sets than a core set ...
