  1. I'm glad you like it. They have since had a newer kickstarter campaign. It can be found here: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/burky/game-toppers-35-upgrading-every-game-you-play If you hit the late pledge button you can still get stuff I think.
  2. Yes, as others have said, for the base coat do not dilute your paint if you are painting on unprimed bones. I'd also give the model a quick wash with some dish soap in warm water than let it dry just to remove any mold release or oils from handling.
  3. Sorry to necro this post but I think what I have to say is relevant. My Game Envy palette finally started to get moldy and smelly after long use. I figure whatever the have in their sponge to fight mold probably washed out over multiple uses. Since I would have to buy a sponge anyway I thought I'd get a bit aggressive with a bleach solution and see what happened. According to Google searches for household cleaning 1 cup of bleach to 1 gallon of water is used. They recommend washing the area and letting it air dry (no rinse) to kill mold. I used this bleach soltuion and soaked the sponge. In a couple of hours all of the black spots were bleached out. I wrang out the sponge and left it air dry over night. It looks new and doesn't smell. I didn't notice any degridation to the sponge but over time I assume it will break down the sponge. In anycase, this lets me use the sponge a little longer while I wait for PAX Unplugged next month. Game Envy has a booth there so I'm hoping I can get a new sponge to keep in reserve there.
  4. Thanks! I was wondeirng about the intended gender on this one too. It's kind of hard to tell.
  5. When it comes to Zombies I take things like "Yuck", "Gross" and "Disturbing" as high praise. 🙂 Thanks everyone!
  6. Thank you for the kind words! 🙂 He's part of the Boss Expansion for Zombicide Black Plague but I bet you can find him singally on ebay.
  7. Awww you guys are making me blush! Many thanks.
  8. Thanks so much for the kind words! When they showed this critter on Reaper Live the first time my wife said "You are getting that for me right?" So now it's going to sit on her desk. I guess she doesn't mind being constanty watched by an Outer God? ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ To each their own I guess. 🙂
  9. You should give yourself more credit. If you dropped that on the table and told me to roll for initiative I'd need to go get some clean pants!
  10. Very nice! I've thought about maybe playing some CAV but I don't really have anyone in my orbit that's interested. I too am mainly a fantasy model person,
  11. Looks good. Nice efficient use of space!
  12. @Gary Pryor is working on Yog too so I thought I'd share my WIP as well. I think I need to give the tentacles some more work but I'm pretty happy so far with the carapace and the eyes. Not sure what I want to do with the base yet. Feel free to give suggestions and constructive criticism. Thanks!
  13. Tell me about it. I feel like I've been working on mine for ever. I'm enjoying the process but the base coat was probably the hardest part to get through. @Gary Pryor I noticed on mine a couple of the eyes had subtle looking lines on them. I think they were meant to represent blood vessels for a bloodshot kind of look. But I only saw that on two. One on each shoulder pad. Though, some of those eyes are so big you could paint them on anywhere you have enough room.
  14. Do you mean the Krylon 1311 Matt Finish one or a different product? The reason I ask is that the 1311 Matt Finish is sold at art stores and doesn't say anything on the label about harming acrylic paint. I believe its purpose is to spray over canvas paintings. I've never had that give me issues on acrylic.
  15. Maybe I'm weird but once I paint something and take a picture I just move on. I also see imperfections after a picture but by then I'm kind of like "it is what it is". I do the same with models I painted when I first started. Sure, I could paint them better now, but hey, It is what it is. I'd rather keep moving forward or I'll never get through my pile of shame.
  16. I do the same to form the tip after washing of pulling and twisting the brush through a crease in my palm. You aren't the only one. 🙂
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
