  1. I grabbed a random mini and snapped some images. The detail is quite good overall.
  2. Thanks. Yeah, wash in alcohol to get color to stick properly. Then a blue wash, this was a bit fiddly as the plastic was still a bit hydrophobic, but a second selective wash fixed that. Then a slight drybrush with either pure white or a slight off white blueish color (in this cast most likely snowdrift white from reaper). Then a gloss varnish. I should also clarify that the pastic is not soft, as in bendy but soft as in plastic cement does not work. It's actuall pretty stiff (similar to the bones black stuff).
  3. They don't need assembly, overall good quality for plastic minis. They are soft plastic though and not hard plastic, as such the detail is not as crisp, there are the usual mold lines etc. For the most part I'm happy with the models, some sculpts are broccoli, but most are acceptable to good I would say. In comparison to reaper, better than old soft bones but worse than bones black. I should have some pics a round from painted minis. Not sure if that does them any favour though, I tried some stuff on them and mostly did a rather speedy job. OK here are some pics, the see through are
  4. Material seems ok didn't drop them yet. I had some breakage but not overly much, and mostly where the material is thin (toches held by a halfling are less than a milimeter across). At least from the renders on the new knights it seems they are aware of this, the lances look chunky enough to stay on. Casting is a bit hit and miss, mostly it's flash and bubbles. The flash so far was easy to clean away but sometimes some small lines need to be scrapped which is annoying with resin (toxicity and such). The bubbles are relatively frequent but can for the most part be easily fixed, just be
  5. I have to say I'm considering an airbrush for a while now, but my main unknown is how much of a mess does it make. Usually people recommend at least a mask, but also a spray booth with sucks air outside etc. How much of a mess does airbrushing really make, is a box enough to catch overspray or is it even needed?
  6. Similar here, I used brush on gloss then matt varnish (both liquitex, but can't imagin brands haveing much of a difference here) to take of the stickyness, seems to work so far. For washing I find that a dip and swishing around in isopropyl alcohol or acid (vinegar) does a lot more that soap and a brush, but both will likely do even more. Have never tried to let them sit in isoproyl alchocol for an extended period of time. For priming, brush on primer, gesso or airbush primer seems to work fine. So does (after a proper wash) painting with undiluted (or nearly undiluted) arcylic paint
  7. Thanks, very informative. Wow talk about ringing endorsement.
  8. Yeah I skipped those where I could see from the swatches which off-whites they were.
  9. There are the following whites in the reaper line. From the swatches they all look ... white. Whats the difference between the colors? Dragon White 09439 Solid White 09478 Pure White 09039 Pearl White 09100 Unicorn White 89547 Pure White appears in a triad which makes me think this is truly pure white. Are some of the others also pure or are they off-color and in which direction? I really can't tell from the swatches.
  10. Just to repeat a frequent question from the kickstarter comments here for better visibility. What is the status and or plan for EU shipping? It seems very likely to the way of a no-deal Brexit and the pledge manager closes at December first. So this is quite an important bit of information for EU backers overall.
  11. Because the ratio is the scale, a height in mm is just a random number really. Then only way to convert the mm to scale would be to have an idea what they are measuring, it's usually feet to eye. Assuming an average height of 1.75m and a head-height to total height ratio of 1/7.5 (and eyes being halfway up the head) we would have a eye-height of 1.633m (1.75/7.5*7), for a scale of 1/58.33 . Which if you measure from toes to head would be roughly 30mm. Ailene being 34mm to the top includes hair and a cowl, and she might be taler (we are talking averages here with
  12. Triads are a neat shortcut so you dont't have to mix shadow and highlight colors yourself. Don't stress about it. Learn to mix paint, that is a useful skill all by itself. Shadows can usually be made by adding the opposing color or simply darken them with black. For highlights add white, for some colors like, red where adding white pushes it into pink, you might want to consider a brighter color you have which is similar in hue, add yellow to red for hightlights for example. I think some were folded back into the base line but not all of them? It's a bit of a mess but does not c
  13. They are bloody adorable
  14. I created a single scenario mission for low level rangers based on the "The Dungeon" books from Loke Battlemats. Since here are some rosd players and backers of that kickstarter I thought I'd share it. No clue how large the overlap is. Anyhow, C&C welcome, reports of how it went also. I played it with two players (GF and I). We had a close, but successful, mission with level 0 and level 1 rangers. I would say tough adventure, and mid level ranger around level 5 might also be fine.

  15. When is the start date for the monthly mini? US stores start at the 1st with a new patch of minis. UK does not, at least currently there is still the January promo going. I assume this is due to shipping and such. Is there a more of less fixed date or is it just 'when the stuff is here'?
