  1. Yeah, I already have CHEPs latest profiles for Cura 4.11. Also got FDG ones too. I need to explore the supports in that other video though. This is probably a loaded question as it probably depends in part on the quirks of each printer, but what filament do you like for model printing? And does it even matter if you have it dialed in? I've been using Hatchbox PLA and Inland from Microcenter for general purpose printing with some nice results. Printed a Tricorder from Star Trek for a friend that turned out pretty nice with Inland.
  2. Oh, that's good. I'll have to check out the Pathfinder metallics. I'd like to stick with Reaper if I can.
  3. Just got my first 3D printer a few weeks back. A Creality Ender 3 Pro. Been enjoying it. I'm using Cura for my slicer. I've found a couple of premade profiles specifically for printing models but I don't know if it's the best one. Does anyone have a suggestions for a profile they like? Thanks,
  4. I haven't tried Color Shifting paints. Are those analogous to typical metallics? Or are they a different animal all together?
  5. Thanks everyone. Sounds like the topic of metallics is a personal preference one, like most things art related. 🙂 I have one Vallejo metallic that I haven't started yet. I want to use up the Reaper ones I already have. But that will likely take a long while since I don't need or use much for most things I've been painting. Unless I start painting an army of Knights and a bunch of barded horses. I've also heard excellent things about Vallejo and Scale 75 just at random places. That trick of GSW metal pigments and Vallejo Metal Medium sound very interesting. I a
  6. So, I know this has been asked somewhere on the forum but I can't find it. It seems my search-fu isn't strong today... I really love Reaper paints in general, but find the metallics to be not as nice as the rest of their paints. What are some of your favorite metallic paints (Reaper or otherwise)? Thanks.
  7. I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest you are a super smeller. This morning before work I opened up two of my bottles and put my nose right up to the bottle. Any closer and I would have gotten paint on my nose. Only then could I smell something, there is absolutely something there. However, I've never smelled it before either brushing it on or through the airbrush. So, you aren't going mad (well, maybe you are but at least this isn't the reason).
  8. I use Stynylrez and have Black, Gray, and White. I've never had a smell from any of them. Then again, my sniffer isn't exactly the greatest but if it's strong enough to make you ligh headed I imagine I'd be able to smell it to? As suggested, a call to Badger may be a good next move.
  9. Thanks. That's a great video. I also watched all of Eons of Battle's playlist of basing videos. Some nice easy and effective ideas in that playlist.
  10. Reaper should my a Flying Spaghetti Monster model. I'd buy that.
  11. Thanks so much! He was a fun one to paint. @RogaDanar MoM is an excellent game. It's one of our all time favorites. In fact we just played last night! The app handles a good portion of things but if you have any questions feel free to PM me and I'll do my best to answer. Also, the BGG forums are active, the rules forum probably already has the answers posted somewhere if you don't want to wait for me to answer. Sometimes I don't check the forums for several days.
  12. This is the first time I'm taking on scales in any real way. I used techniques from Rhonda Benders scales classes. It's also the first time I've done lines on this "scale" (Dad joke, sorry). I'm planning on painting darker scaled along the back to make a sort of striped pattern like is seen on some snakes. And, of course, the other details. Mouth, scars, teeth, spikes on the head... etc. I used the Philipine Cobra as inspiration.
  13. Has anyone tried the new Red Dot series of Synthetic brushes from R & Co? It's a new product line for 2021. They suggested it when I contacted them about when they think they'll be able to import Kolinsky Sable again. Seems they are going to be out of the market for a while until they get their cert updated.
