  1. Also painted my mini's to use on the table for D&D :) Hosting several games. Here we shifted to online games on Roll20 and Discord in march. the weekly game survived. We're still playing online every friday evening, with only a rare miss or shift. Everyone has a webcam (which helps immensely to get the real feel back some-ish). One campaign died instantly in the first lockdown. I miss showing off my mini's in the D&D sessions, it's such a fun use of them. But the online games are still fun, the roleplay still works, rp conversations still work well, dram
  2. A few weeks ago during one of the big show-offs on youtube, I finally noticed the size of that massive spider. My god. I had not realised it was so incredibly huge! Luckily I was in time to plunge it in my basket, somehow I had overlooked this in the past images that had passed, thinking "I already have that big sipder van Bones 4, don't need another, even though the model is cool". Not realizing this one could be the mother to that other spider's babyform. Gawd!
  3. Amazing! I love following this process from first draw to print. Those look great!
  4. Aw, sadly the images are broken on your linked post :( I had skipped on that one, his size was incredible, and I could not foresee a use for him within our D&D games. Though that model is bloody amazing aswell!
  5. With these extentions I have lured 4 more people in the kickstarter, and generated almost $500 more towards Reaper. Seeing all these amazing models in the actual print form, and the relatively close distribution date, has pulled people over the finish lines :D Almost everyone wanted a Yog when they saw that amazing model! I dread the paintjob though, with all the tentacles, but it's bound to be amazing. The total of my order, which is shared with friends, is the following:
  6. I got the Valejo sets, and put 1 layer of Electric Blue Violet on a black primer (with a size 2 brush) and am amazed at the results. This is what I was after :D This is a paint worthy for Argent! thanks again for the advices on this topic <3 V_20210103_170602.mp4
  7. Updated the topic, thanks for the tips and advice all! that Bird with a Brush tutorial seems amazing!
  8. Haha, that's quite a good @Reaper_Jon :D
  9. Friends got nudged to ordering an extra coreset and some expansions / add-ons, bumping the total of my order up. This is gonna be a fun unpacking and painting for more then just myself, and I love that :D
  10. Not much to add to this discussion, except for me personally, I don't think about the colours untill it's primed and standing on my workshelf. I love the method where the colours come to me based on the moment, the mini, my feelings, the weather, whatever else influences me at that point. Sometimes I'll have seen a cool paintjob and draw inspiration, other times i"ll look up a creature or animal for reference, other times I"ll just be like.. Well, bite me, but this piglet is Blue, not purplish. Just because he can. Usually works out, and I surprise myself on the outc
  11. That Khaji looks amazing, but somehow I keep getting torn to Ron's dangerous make-up on that pic! He creeps the hell out of me there, haha
  12. Great video, you can really see the brush vs airbrush difference, and as she says, both look great for different things. In my arsenal there's usually no tanks (pun intended), just creatures, so vallejo's brush on paints should work for me. I'll look into getting a set soon, thanks!
  13. I'd imagine no, since the payment isn't done through the Reaper site itself and there's no options to add it. They might be able to help if you mail to [email protected] This would be your best bet.
  14. This was my first OSL attempt ever, some time ago now. Looking back I realize I didn't paint the light source properly. It should be far lighter. I simply attempted to do some dry brushing of the blue colour on the places I figured would be hit. The aproach needs to change, I guess I'm forgetting some steps :) but wanted to share my attempt aswell.
  15. Great tips so far! I'm definitely going to watch that David Diamondstone class. Does the VOD on Twitch require a twitch sub? Update: found the YouTube link too, added in main post. @Cyradis I'm quite sure you're right, if you can see where the light will hit, and where the shadows will be, it's a path to succes. For me personally I'm always having issues seeing where the light will hit, and where shadows should be. It's a skill to train I suppose. I've added the hints gathered so far in the main post, hidden under a spoiler tag (so it won't get to la
  16. Hi all, With OSL being such a difficult thing to start on, yet can bring such amazing results when performed properly, I thought I'd create a general topic for all questions and tips OSL related. For me, I've tried it a few times but haven't been happy yet on the results. I'm looking to try it again soon. I picked up a few commissions, where some (minor) OSL is also requested if possible. What has been your experience with OSL? Which guides helped you the best? What method is the key to your victory on this subject? All hints and videolinks are welcome!
  17. Good to see I'm not alone. I have the luxury my wife wanted a big display / closet wall in our living room (which has 4 blocks of display cabinets), and supports the hobby meaning 2 are dedicated to miniatures (3 shelves per cabinet). Still though! I can fit a few more big beasts in there, then it'll be full already :o Still...... can't wait for Bones 5! :3 <3
  18. Every time I look at my display cabinets, with mostly Bones 4 stuff sitting proud on there (Mostly painted, even!), I get this anxiety of where in hell I'm gonna let the Bones 5 stuff sit. A feeling best described as a "What have I done?" state. When I read this thread and see all the love for the products, it reassures me that bones 5 is gonna be amazing. But still, my display area keeps yelping out to me! Anyone recognize this mixed feeling aswell? :p
  19. I"m loving this! Very original, well done. You should enter it in the Diorama contest or something :D
  20. I'm loving it! I had that model, but the hunched over look didn't really make him interesting to paint, or seem to have the presence on the table I'd want of a Frost Giant Jarl. You fixed that part! If this was for sale by Reaper as you made it, I'd surely go get one!
  21. Whoa, you went all out on that base! Is Kaladrax detachable from it, or is it not intended to be used in gameplay but purely for diorama? Either way, it looks incredible! Great job!
  22. I like it. Although, not being of that oldschool 1e generation, I do miss those spikes on his back. But both versions look great, well done!
  23. I don't really fear a double VAT. We know they were busy with another EU hub. If double VAT would be a risk at that time, I imagine they would let it be shipped to, and from, that other EU hub they mentioned. I would just like to be reassured, and a bit updated, on that process. Did the other EU hub become a fact? Is there a risk involved? If someone would tell me it's there, it's in Germany and they are still looking into the shipping costs and VAT, and wait to see what UK has done by the time of shipping, then I'm happy. Sure there are uncertainties, but some updates would be cool.
