  1. I know I mentioned before, that second shot of her scowl has made this one of my favorite minis of the year. But if you're serious about doing the textured cloth class at the next RC, I'll be there taking it.
  2. I suspect some of us would like this more than others.
  3. I would love to see more 48mm or 72mm scale bones figurines. a 72mm Bones Sofie would make me super happy.
  4. @hungefan, I've had the same issue with one of my other black friday orders, it's been in transit to the next facility for 3 days now, but should be delivered today. We'll see..... I think the USPS is just slammed as usual for this time of year and some of the tracking's not getting updated.....
  5. You forgot that each year also has special edition mini's. I can't find last year's, but here's 2016 http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/72121-reaper-christmas-promotions/&tab=comments#comment-1478289
  6. They have two sets. They have a set that are only available for purchase during the christmas season, and then they have the 12 that are the $40 free bonus one day each for 12 days.
  7. @Morihalda I need a Mocking Stocking ASAP!!!!
  8. If past years are any indicator, we can probably expect to the see the announcement posted next Wednesday to start on Friday
  9. @Balgin Stondraeg That Brianne looks about perfect. I may end up using her but I was shooting to keep with Reaper for most of the parts at least. @Halberkill, I can't believe I forgot that one. I think I even have her in my swag from RC this year....
  10. Fantastic! I love the yellow belly on the blue. reminds me of some of the old dragonlance covers.
  11. She's not a cleric I feel like is more of a clue than just the 'she' part, but googling that phrase only really returns a crossword clue for the word 'Laywoman' which I doubt is what Ron meant. puzzles, puzzles....
  12. LOL Try refreshing. Reaper's 404 page(s) are really fun
  13. I don't know if the web or mail order team knows, but the post cards that were going out with orders announcing the release of T'Raukzul pointed to a url, http://www.ReaperMini.com/traukzul that just returns a 404.... I thought maybe it was because he wasn't out yet but now that he's out, the url is still broken....
  14. I'm glad the colors are working out the way they looked in my head. I've had several times I've tried for an odd/off the wall palette that looked really great in my head, and looked... much less so once I did it.
  15. I might even actually get a hotel room for one or two nights instead of driving in from the next county over every day...
  16. Cinder was the red to go with Stormwing, Blightfang, Ebonwrath, and Deathsleet. T'Raukzul (77585) is larger by at least a third than the others, and will be priced at $49.99 when he comes out next week. Argent, too, is going to be incredibly large and probably not at this price point. Natharax (77279) and Marthrangul (77542) are also the $29.99 priced dragons, I'm not sure if they would fit in as any. Verocithrax is the same price too, though he's an undead....)
  17. Looks lovely. I'm following this thread so please be sure to post a link to the Show Off thread when you put it up!
  18. Looking good. I love the jungle waterfall base idea.!
  19. Ladies and gentlemen, Color has happened. As stated before, my concept was to bring in some colors from an autumn forest palette, and so in my head i'm seeing the outer edges of scales and wings making the transition to autumn red, fading through yellows and back to green as it gets close to his skin, and then taking some artistic license. His wings would be green with this concept, but I really wanted to push the fall leaves look, so they will blend through the colors on his wings as well. Broke out the airbrush to get some basic color down all over him. I started by touching up the underpainting, though I forgot to get a picture of that finalized. Used Stynylrez White and grey, with a touch of black mixed in for some deep shadows. After that I went all over with a thin coat of 29807 HD Mustard Yellow, thinned per my usual habit with Createx high performance reducer. After that had a bit to dry, I came in with 09035 Olive Green, and picked out some lower lying areas, as well as the veins in the wings. I also brought in a little bit of 09011 Leaf Green to darken some areas. Then I shifted to the oranges and reds, and working through some mixes of the mustard yellow, 09405 Volcanic Orange, and 09279 Fresh Blood (such a vivid red), I brought in the areas that are turning red on the wings and face. The colors are still a bit rough at the moment, my airbrush blends aren't nearly as smooth and flawless as they could be, but since I'm planning to come back in with a few washes and glazes to actually build the colors on his scales, and it won't be a problem to do the same to smooth out the wing blends. Also I'm going to come in with some browns, both for the random brown spotting you'll see on leaves, as well as trying to make all of his claws and horns look almost wooden.
  20. Ok, a quick update, tonight I got about an hour or so to work on him, so I primed him. Grey Stynlrez, followed by white to broadly sketch in highlights. Mostly, just really happy to see that my gap fill areas almost disappear when they're the same color as the rest of him. Sadly, though, even a second boil and shock seems to have not held in his wings and they still won't hold a curve shape, so I guess I'll have to live with them being flat.....
  21. Thanks Talespinner for the info there, I had actually forgoten who sculpted him at all..... Aaaaaanyway, did a little more greenstuff gapfilling and texturing it, I think I"m ready for paint, gotta let the GS cure first though..... Obligitory Crying dragon shot: One wing didn't stay bent. Not sure yet what I'm going to do with that, maybe try dunking it again once the gs is cured... took a preassembly picture sideways... he totally does and I may have to do something with another dragon some day. (not this guy, ofc)
  22. ******EDIT : Jump to Show-Off thread Everyone, meet Viridius. He's a hefty boi. No Ma'al or Kalladrax, but still pretty big. He doesn't even fit in my light box, as you can see. I've thought a long time about how I was going to paint him up, I don't think I'm going to go with the standard green dragon look. Instead I'm going to take my inspiration from the time of year, and make him an autumn forest dragon, whose coloration changes with the forest around him. So I'll be doing him in mostly golden yellows to oranges and reds, but keeping some greenish tones as the base of scales and other places, to kind of give a reminder of the verdent glory he was before. One thing I'm choosing to see as an opportunity is that the tops of his wings are very smooth, ideal for some freehand work. The question is, what to do? Some kind of leaf like pattern, or perhaps a butterfly like eye pattern (in the leaf colors, of course) Out of the box bag he was in pretty good shape. The usual mold line cleanup, though he has some gaps that will need to be filled. I followed up with reshaping the wings a little with some boiling water. I forgot to get a complete before picture, but below you can see the before and after for the right wing I've had to fully assemble him, I don't like the way the wing joins look without greenstuff, so that's going to be the first order of business. So painting around the wings might be a chore, but it's nothing I haven't dealt with before (Although, not in recent history) I begain the gapfill on the right side, but after sticking a finger in greenstuff twice and having to flip him back to touch up the texture, I decided to call it a night and do the left side gaps later.
