  1. I had the same issue with the Craft articles. I found them on Archive.org. If you put in the URL for the page you are looking for they might have a snapshot you can bookmark.
  2. Thanks! I bet it would have been more points if I painted a glitterwolf! :)
  3. Just finished this yesterday. I obviously followed Josh's steps as close as I could with the paints I had on hand. I think it turned out well and following the video made me learn new things which is always good.
  4. I'm thinking of getting one for myself. My mixing arm is starting to complain.
  5. What about the "LabGenius MI0101001 Mini-Vortex Mixer" on Amazon? They are about $80 each.
  6. That's kind of what I thought but wanted to see what others thought before I risked messing up a figure. :) Thanks.
  7. I have an inexpensive flush cut nipper. How well does that work on Bones Black for clipping bits off? Specifically, I'm considering cutting the molded in base off so I can re-base them. I've seen tutorials on people doing this with Bones Classic but I know Black is a harder substance. I believe the method in The Craft archive was to use the nippers to cut small chunks of the base off until you only had the bits under the feet, then to use the nippers to cut those small pieces off flush with the bottom of the feet. Will that method still work on Black? Thanks.
  8. The worst thing about weekends is that they are over far to quickly. I think we have our priorities wrong as a society. We should have two day work weeks with five day weekends in between. But for the same pay.
  9. That's an excellent comparison. Thanks.
  10. Yeah, I looked into that. I'm kind of lazy but moving washes to droppers should be super easy as they are so liquid. I just need to order the bottles.
  11. Yeah, I just have a few for convenience sake. I have Nuln Oil, Agrax Earthshade, Saraphim Sepia, and Flesh Wash. Any other color I mix. I see no sense in having a huge tub of an orange wash. For how often I'd use it I'll just make one quick. When I use up these maybe I'll just get the reaper ones instead since I prefer the dropper bottles.
  12. So, the topic came up in a recent RTB episode where Justin said it was very common for people who use Reaper paints to use GW washes. For me, I use them just because that's what everyone else seemed to do. I've only been painting about a year so I just went with the crowd when I started. This brings me to my question: What is it about GW washes over Reaper's washes that so many people like? I know, I should just buy them and try them out to form my own opinion but it seems still to buy more washes when I have the GW ones that are still 95% full. Thanks.
  13. I actually still have the dice that came in my original red box basic D&D set. They have been used and abused for so many years that the corners are starting to round off a bit. But that crayon is still holding strong in those recesses. I have tons of way better looking dice but I still keep these around. I just can't seem to bring myself to toss them out. It feels like throwing away part of my childhood.
  14. Today marks the one year point for me of starting this Hobby. Here is the very first thing I painted, the Skeleton from the Learn to Paint kits. After completing the two Learn to Paint kits I painted this. It's Rita Young from the Mansions of Madness board game. This is the first thing I painted fully on my own, ie, no instructions to follow from the learn to paint books. Fast forward a year and these are the most recent ones. They are monsters from the Mansions of Madness game expansions and are what I'm currently most proud of.
  15. Thanks! I didn't know there was a thread specifically for this kind of thing. I'll go check it out.
