    Brush Issue

    I definitely recommend ordering off an actual art store website like Dick Blick, and I like give my brushes a bit of a light wash and precondition with some brush soap. Also, I had trouble with W&N, even though they were highly recommended. I never got a good one. I heard (like people have mentioned) that they changed manufacturing styles or something before I got into painting so maybe all the good ones are now just a memory :( I highly recommend Rosemary and Co, series 33. I only had one come to me with a split tip and they immediately replaced it. Also their Eclipse series is really really awesome for synthetics. I'm trying to switch to purely synthetics, or at least saving my real hair brushes for only the finest of details so that they last longer. I (stupidly) didn't realize that the animals are killed in harvesting and now I have guilt!!!!!

    Lol, I read "revolting" and expected like diseased people with oozes and sores.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I'm so excited to see what comes next, the Bones 5 enthusiasm train will be just the thing to break me out of my no painting slump. It's been a stressful summer and counter-intuitively I've barely touched my paints, just haven't been motivated, but I totally broke out a Bones 4 Troll to work on tonight!

    Oooooooooooooooooooooo I'll keep an eye out then! A lot of Bones 4 minis had separate bases which was suuuper helpful

    I thought it was faster but not that much faster! Has any started making the comparison charts like they did in bones 4, comparing progress to Bones 3, 2 and 1?

    Someone might have already asked this, but is the base separate?

    Love that OSL. I still haven't gotten OSL to work on any of my figures, I think I'm too timid. Did you fully paint her head like the body and then add the green lighting, or just go straight to the lighting?

    Bones 4 Dragon Turtle

    I second this idea! maybe not quite as vibrant as the shell highlights but a little more would make them pop more

    I got mine today! Everything looks great! Man, Bones Black shows some crisp detail on the smaller minis!! I also got both paint sets despite only ordering Paint Set B. But my Argent is missing :( i emailed Reaper already so I’m sure it’ll be fine.

    My Wave 1 shipped! Finally! only 28.20 lbs which I was surprised about but I guess I didn't order a lot of the big things, like dance of death and the zombie dragon but I did the barge, Argent, Mossbeard, and the trio of doom

    Has there been any word on if the last shipment has made it through customs and is on the way to/arrived in Dallas? I know it made it to port.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Oof. I’ve been offline all day but it’s already on Wave 2 and no shipping notice (even on the PM) for me. I guess that means they ran out of the but before they got to me.

    Do we think they’re going to ship stuff tomorrow too? Or take the weekend off?

    I had 13 orders.......................was that not the norm?

    I hope they have enough huts to make it to me! I'm definitely at the tail end of Wave 1, and I've got all 3 items of doom!

    Anyone get any shipping notices in the past hour or do we think they’re done for the day

    I should have gotten that skeleton dragon. I keep seeing photos and I want one now.

    Any word (on FB I suppose would be the most likely place) on why the tracker isn't working?

    Sigh, I am pretty sure I am close to dead last in Wave 1. I first locked in on 12/18/2017. WTH Past Amanda! What were you thinking! Edit: typo and to add purple

    I am getting no work done! I'm just reading comments and dreaming about minis!

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I am really regretting not getting the Lost Valley expansion. But I am not regretting getting TWO Darkreaches. Also, I should have gotten more giants, and another Blacktooth. I haven't even gotten my minis and I already want more! Edit: Oh hey, has anyone gotten the Spartans/Amazons? How big are the plinths they stand on?

    Are they aiming for 500 a day? I know for Canada and the rest of the world they packed around the clock, but they said for the US they were only going to be packing half days, and going back to their regular jobs after lunch. Also, keep an eye out for Knoxville, TN! I'll be in and out of the office so can't stalk the tracker like I want to!
