  1. Awesome and thanks for all of the replies everyone. I will see how the vortex mixer works when someone tries it and if it isn't up to the level of the Robart, then I'll get the Robart. With the amount that I have to use a computer and the time that I love to spend painting (when I have the fever), I need to do every little thing I can to cut down on carpal tunnel risk.



    Do to the joys of arthritis, I've gotten to the point where I have to use these guys or not paint. I also live with another mini painter so we have quite a few of the guys anywhere either of us tend to paint. There is a noticable difference between the quality of the battery version and the AC version. With the same amount of wear and tear , I've managed to burn out two battery versions past all salvaging while my AC one is still going strong. If you go with a Robart shaker, I'd strongly suggest getting the AC version. It's quieter, takes far more abuse and in general the quality control on those is much much higher than the battery one.



  2. I'm so happy!! ::D:


    Any how, has anyone done one of these. I just tried sitting the pieces together and they don't seem to go flush together. I've also noticed that the dragons front legs don't seem to want to sit down onto the base correctly.


    My camera is not working correctly right now, so sorry for not posting any pics.





    I've put together and painted one of these. Mine also had problems with the body joins on the dragon, bad enough that I just ended up getting the tail and legs filed till they fit as closely as possible and puttied the resulting large gaps to match. If yours isn't a flash problem, and fixed with filing, I strongly suspect you'll not be able to get out of needing to fill and texture the gaps too.



  3. Got mine in the mail today! Whoohoo! She's a very lovely Angel of Darkness. She didn't come with the painters handle name, so please let me know it so I put up some pics of her.




    sorry I forgot to include a note in it, it was pretty late at night when I boxed up mine and my wife's minis, but I did the angel for ya =) glad you liked it - did the wings make it ok? I was so afraid they would fall off since they came off while I was painting her a few times




    Cools. She's lovely. The wings made it just fine and stayed attached in transit. I'll put up some pics in the showoff section tomorrow of her. (Unless you had really good pics you wanted to put up.)


    Thanks again!



  4. The blues were done with VMC's. He was based with Intense Blue, shaded with black, then highlighted first with Medium Blue, then up to Sky blue. I then glazed again with intense blue to bring the colors together.



    Jabberwocky, Anatora asked me to post for her and thank you for the miniature. :) She'll make a post herself when she's able. She's been laid up in bed sick for the past week and had about no computer time. Your miniature was a wonderful surprise and great upper for her. Ann adores dragons and dragonlike creatures. I almost lost a hand while holding the box for her to rummage through to take out the mini!!




  5. Isn't she a beaut!? Very clean paint job, nice simple base, beautiful work! Thank you so much Valloa! Now if I only had a wonderful little display case to put her in, my old one broke in my last move. Now I just have to figure out how to get into that forum gallery thingy..



    Welcomes and I'm glad that you like her! :)



  6. I had this older Reaper mini sitting around in my cabinet for ages, so I figured I'd paint it up for the CCV lest it keep sitting there forever. I tried to do something new on every figure I entered in the CCV and this one was a failed attempt at a mild sheer effect.
