  1. I just bought a couple of cheap Architech lamps from Amazon and picked up some daylight LEDs from the hardware store. You can spend tons of money on fancy lights but I find this works perfectly fine for my purposes.
  2. I have to say when I saw it first mentioned I was a bit skeptical. My first reaction was that it was a bit nitpicky. However, I went back and looked at the concept art and the preview model and I also think it looks better with the membrane added.
  3. That's dedication. Way more than I could muster. heh
  4. Oh, Yeah. Just ask my wife about my quirks. She'll give you a list.
  5. Yeah, I had to google the term "propatagium". It was an entirely new word for me so I felt compelled to look it up.
  6. Honestly, it sounds like you have knowledge on the topic of wing anatomy. I lack the knowledge to even think about things like wing anatomy, wing to body ratios, wing positioning or anything like that. I just grunt like a cave man an go "ohhh...cool dragon". I can see how having that knowledge would make these things stand out.
  7. Today I learned what a propatagium is. Personally I don't find it a problem either way. These are fantasy models which means "anatomically correct" is whatever the artist wants it to be. There is no reason anything has to be based on how things are in our reality. That being said I can understand why some may prefer it visually. I've just never noticed one way or the other before.
  8. Nope, you aren't the only one checking. 🙂 If you want to just get an email when it opens and not have to check you can put your email in the page below. https://www.reapermini.com/ks/bones6
  9. Thanks! YouTube videos were my friend on this for ideas and techniques. I don't usually paint larger models so this was fun.
  10. Wait, their was a third LTPK? It must have been out of print well before I started painting then or I most certainly would have bought it.
  11. I decided to paint this in a pretty typical way. It might one day be a purple worm in a game. :). I'm pretty happy with how it turned out with the amount of time I've spent on it.
  12. I don't do this much, but for large flat surfaces I've used Krylon sandable filler primer. I go back and forth between a thin layer and sanding. Each step going finner and finner in the sanding grit. I used paper rated for wet sanding so I can run it under the water in the sink. To get the finest surface possible step your way up in the grit. I have 120, 220, 320, 600, 800, and 1500. I wont lie, this is time consuming but you can stop at any point along the way if you are happy with the finish. The other thing I've used is XTC-3D. It's a 2 part resin specifically designed to for 3D print and to settle into the seams and self level. I used this once on a very rough surface that wasn't practicle to sand. I had to thin it (denatured alcohol or acetone per the instructions) because it was so thick it was filling details. But once thinned and applied in a light coat it worked well. It gives a high gloss finish but can be primed and painted after. Try not to rush things. If using the sandable filler primer make sure it's fully dry in between sanding. I rushed things once and didn't get a good result.
  13. Yeah, only one or two squirts. No more. And it seems OK.
  14. When I fill my wet palette I put in one or two squirts of amonia based glass cleaner on the bottom. Then put the sponge in and fill it with water. I also keep a 6" section of 16 gauge copper wire left over from house wiring to the side of the sponge. Seems to work well for me.
