  1. Nothing wrong with buying duplicates, helps improve your skills:) Especially now with bones being so inexpensive:)
  2. Thats cool, but how come the next run of bones III releases are not till December:( I want that Werebear:)
  3. However, Robby was featured in a few episodes of twilight zone and his appearance resume is huge:) https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robby_the_Robot I'd love both robots as some new bones:)
  4. I actually bought that Mr. Bones Mini recently, hope my paint job comes out that good:)
  5. Ooh how about babymetal and their Kami Band:) http://www.babymetal.com/home/
  6. Well I haven't been able to score a KSIII core set yet:( But I did score a set of the Western wizard of Oz off Ebay for five bucks:) Plus the chill out group and the savage worlds group:) pretty excited about them all:)
  7. That's probably what I'll do, just been too busy to finish it:) As for doing the LED into a base, I decided NOT to go that route after I saw this: Was easier to just keep the tealight base:) Next time, if and when, I do the wraith again I will make sure to center the fender washer so I can drill straight up into it so more of the light will illuminate. Better yet, maybe just drill wraith first THEN base it!
  8. I think its just the base I am unhappy with. Hopefully some dry-brush will make it look better:)
  9. So not real happy how it turned out (especially the base), but here's the wraith all dry-brushed and base painted. I just need some drybrush on the base and details on the skull and I am calling it done:( Not happy, but my wife says i'm too hard on myself, especially since this is my fully completed miniature in like 15 years:(
  10. So here is the wraith after varnish and a green/black wash (blue wash on sword and stone on tombstone). Now for a drybrush:)
  11. Worked on the wash for my grave wraith before hitting our town's fireworks show, hopefully get the drybrush going before bed:)
  12. My goal for July is to get back into the groove and: 1) Finish my three skeleton archers using different primers and see whats best 2) Finish my grave wraith now that I have based and varnished it:) 3) Do all three miniatures in the LTPK:core skills now that it has arrived:) I'll of course deviate a little from the instructions by basing and priming them (hopefully primed by airbrush). and if I get that all done 4)finish my 20 year project: The Ral Partha Orc:)
  13. That's what I had heard, and my matt varnish seemed right, maybe the Ivory was a bad batch?
  14. Thanks, and appreciate the ID:) Yah I have so many out of the box mini's in a big parts tool case (you know, those ones that hold screws and parts haha) I am not sure who is who anymore :) Gonna be tough once I start painting them all:)
  15. Okay, this one has been sitting around for like foreever just primed, so I decided now that I have the Reaper LTPK, i'd start trying to finish him. I am pretty sure its a grenadier model, and that its a goblin:) but if someone else knows for sure, please let me know:)
  16. So I finally got my Reaper Bones Learn to paint core skills kit, and decided to use the techniques for the skeleton on these skeletons first (well sort of haha). The whitewashed skeleton was a Vallejo ivory model color bottle which seemed WAY more thin then the reaper stuff, so not too happy with it at the moment, but will take it through the other techniques and see how it plays out. The other skeleton is more true to the walkthrough in the LTPK book. They both of course had a black primer done before the base coat and they both had their bases done (one with kitty litter, the other just baking soda). the white one is only on the basecoat, where the other is ready for its drybrush. Will post more as they move along.
  17. Well still hoping a Moderator will help push this thraed to WIP, but here is the Mini with some kitty litter basing:) i'll be doing the varnish and then wash soon.
  18. yup, had a few spots happen, but that might work on the grave wraith:)
  19. So a quick question about vallejo Matt varnish, is it slightly creamy out of the bottle? I thought it would be clear, but its been a while since I have used varnishes and dullcotes:)
  20. I think it may have split a little because I was trying to re-position his arm to be away from his body (which unfortunately did not take), and I think that opened the space a little.
  21. So I am not sure if I was tired when I cleaned him up, scrubbed too hard when I cleaned him or just didnt notice, but do the 77015 bugbear warriors have a small separation between their head to the back of their neck? is the head and body two pieces? Could I fill it with super glue before I base coat it? Any suggestions or help is appreciated.
  22. what was your technique on the wraith?
  23. Have a quick question about Kickstarter III Oz figures: I think I have figured out who is who except for one: 224 - Tinman with an axe 225 - Is this the wizard or the lion? 226 - scarecrow with a big scythe 227 - Wicked witch 228- Monkey 229 - Dorothy and toto so what is 225? I am hoping I can get the KSIII core set off someone soon:)
