    My spare time mainly consists of gaming and music. I play drums and am constantly looking to discover new music. Generally, I gravitate towards metal/prog genre based songs, but I like vastly different songs as well. As for gaming, I mostly play WoW and Pathfinder. As a DM for my Pathfinder game, I've taken it upon myself to buy my players their first real miniatures and paint them up myself. I'm no crystal brush winner, but I can damn well try. I'm a good try-er.

  1. I was wondering how the one foot overhang would look as well. It was either going to look fairly good or look like I had run out of space on the base and just went with it. As for the Owlbear, yes, it is a large creature and shouldn't be a problem if I ever get to that part of a bestiary. The Owlbear was more an example from the last thread of a miniature that was too large for the base that the person wanted, I think for Warlord or something. One of the reasons I've turned away from square bases is one of my players miniatures I got for them, Lem the Iconic Halfling Bard, seems to complete
  2. I really want to stick with the round 25 mm base to keep with uniformity and the game mechanics. I understand I'm trying to make two things that don't go together, go together. And yes, BLZeebub, I will be cutting off the integrated base for the figures. It may come down to me having to use this particular figure as a Dire Wolf (Large Sized creature, 50 mm) or something of the like should I not be able to get the 25 mm base to work.
  3. I'm looking at basing some of my miniatures now that I have a few standard 25mm round bases but I seem to have run into a problem. In the Animal Companion pack, the wolf and the cat are too big for these bases as it seems they were made with cavalier bases in mind. Luckily, the bear is on two hind legs swiping so I should be able to base it with no problems, possibly having to glue a coin inside the base to give it weight to not fall over. I've seen the thread discussing the Owlbear and Iron Cobra with the same problem, but I'm not a fan of the solution of simply basing the figures with larger
  4. I haven't had a Windsor Newton but I do have a few Rosemary & Co brushes, I see others praising them and I hope that I was either just too hard on them or I got a bad batch. Mine didn't seem to hold much of a tip out of the package and ones I haven't even used have stray hairs already. I figured it was just because they were my first set and I didn't know how to handle them and clean them properly, but I do the exact same thing with the Reaper Pro 10-0 and #1 brushes and they're still in really good condition despite using them FAR more than the Rosemary & Co ones I have (well, the rea
  5. Hello everyone, I just received a mini in the mail today and was wondering what the best way to go about assembling the cape for it was. The miniature in question is a resin mini called Dieter Kaufmann who I will be painting up like Malcom Reynolds for Starfinder. I'm going to be painting the back of the legs before I put it on so I can actually reach it, but I was wondering if simple CA glue would be sufficient to keeping the cape on. I've attached a picture of the separated pieces.
  6. Haha, gorillas could be a word to describe my players some times when it comes to miniature handling (and on the occasion myself). Especially after the time that the wizard decided to flick his Kael figure (bones) onto the map to place his figure. Originally, I was going to paint the miniatures up the way I wanted them and they would be the start of my collection as a DM. Over time, my thoughts about it changed and I've decided that after my campaign is over, the miniatures will be given to the respective players as they don't have their own. Something for them to remember the campaign by. I a
  7. I have the pin about 3mm into his arm (more so into his head, I destroyed part of the arm due to inaccurate drilling) and just under 2 mm into his hand. I tried to go as far as I thought I could without poking through the other side. The arm falling off has been from a few things. At first it was from falling on it's side at the table, it only had the base that came with it and would fall over from weight distribution. Once from the player moving the mini by the hand of the miniature. Then, one of my players decided to help me clean up at the end of the night and put him in a diff
  8. Hello everyone, I'm new to the whole miniature hobby as a whole and I was wondering if anyone had tips on how to pin Tobias Winterhorn's arm better. I used CA glue and a paper clip, but the arm has fallen off quite a few times now. The one I own currently is primed and painted now and is going to be used on tabletop for my Pathfinder game as on of my players characters, but I was wondering for the future when I buy another for myself (and possibly when the painted one meets an inevitable accident). Even if you are unfamiliar with this mini, tips on a stronger pinning bond would be appreciated.
