  1. I love the miniature from last kickstarter. But, the theme of this one doesn't interest me. From the miniature I was only interested by the kingpin and the cocky crossbow woman. Thought I do like the actual warhammer (heroic scale). So it is sadly a pass on this kickstarter.
  2. Well, that is a little disappointing. I was looking forward to that figure. Luckily the Dunkendorf courtesan can fit as a substitute.
  3. Lovely Figure and a beautiful paint job. I really like how you did the face. Water won't be enough, the surface tension will stop it from going into the holes. You either need to break up the surface tension with a flow improver/dish soap or pre wet it with some isopropyl alcohol.
  4. Thank you for sharing these. Makes me a little sad I did get the giant weasel or deer. Could you please show the old dragons in the core set. I want to see if they stand up or if you would say they are to bendy.
  5. Nope, you are complaining like an adult. There is money involved. To be honest I get exactly why people are angry and disappointed. This was an issue that was raised even before the kickstarter finished and reaper just ignored them by going: "everything will be fine. Trust Us" (in the same voice as the Snake from the Stronghold series of games). Plus no one is happy when they need to pay more. In other words Reaper dropped the ball in both communication and planing. If they kept the communication about the issue constant there wouldn't have been such a surprise and peop
  6. For me the best part of dark depths was the realistic marine animals. Closely followed by the merfolk. I was most disappointed in the Crocosaurus due to its body shape being wrong for swimming, ofcourse this can be modified and it would make a good giant prehistoric amphibian (its gill structure reminds me a little of the them and I would just need to cut off the tail fluke and sculpt a new one. Maybe you could also exchange the front and back legs.)
  7. Good job! I like the muted palette and the expression on the zombie's face. To make leather pop, i like to paint it using a dark brown colour and when highlighting either: Highlight by adding more brownish-yellow (Golden Ochre, but I hear Reaper Palomino Gold is close to it) until it is that colour. Not really using white, since that pushes the colour more towards neutral. Highlight as normal, then push the highlight up to white. Follow up with a thin glaze of a transparent colour. For black leather I like Prussian blue. For maroon I like Quinacridone violet or Quina
  8. Good job! I am happy my post helped you, thought I cannot claim to be the originator of the ideas in it. The transparent green really fits the colour composition of the piece.
  9. Super black paint seems as good idea to put under the hood of miniature, at least that is what I think given the fragility of the paint layer. Maybe colouring in eyes or inking in carved writing could work. As long as it is used in the recesses of the miniature. Actually it could work for a really fun lantern/flame. Imagine a henchman painted in monotone with the lantern having a super black paint for the light location. You could add some colours on the opposite side of the mini, making it look as if life and joy where slowly being drained by the cursed lantern.
  10. I enjoy you sharing your experiences. I like your colour choices for the figures. Now I will give you some of my knowledge: Dry brushing: In nearly all circumstances its better to add a glaze after a dry brush, as always there are exceptions. Hair: It's all about shadows and volumes. You don't want to highlight every single piece of hair. Instead you want to have dark and light areas. Get a reference photo and copy the locations of shadows and highlights (will come out the best). A controlled dry brush with the mid-tone can help in getting hair definition in the shadows
  11. I feel that there are some villagers that fit: - Travelling Priests or travelling mage (better yet some of them are young) - Nuns (there is a couple ladies that if painted up right would look like stern nuns looking at you with great disappointment) - Small Merchants in the process of selling wares. The biggest problem I have with them is the clothing. I would have preferred some more traditional easter/central European celebratory dresses (some things like Polskie Stroje Ludowe.) A series of miniatures representing National Costumes would be interesting.
  12. That random wizard cursed them to wear royal blue clothing with golden accents! The fiend! How are they meant to show off their depressing childhood and cursed existence if they are not wearing fifty shades of brown? To be hones if you are providing the minis, that shouldn't really matter. If they complain about the colour of the dress they probably should be brining their own mini. I really don't understand why I am more excited for the civilians than any other of the current minis. I really wish that the next kickstarter will have more high-class historic civilians or some f
