  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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!
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. I"m loving this! Very original, well done. You should enter it in the Diorama contest or something :D
  9. 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!
  10. 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!
  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. I love it! Ever since Talespinner mentioned this was designed as a Forest Drake, my plans formed to Green / Yellow as colours. This is what I hope to achieve or come close to, I love this paintjob. Great job :D
  14. Earlier they made the right plans to secure a second hub in Europe. I believe Germany was mentioned, but that may as well be an estimate from someone. As time has passed for the plans to be thought out, a hint of these plans would be great to hear. Nothing set in stone, but just the knowledge it's being worked on would be something. @Reaper_Jon I don't suppose you could find something out? I'm very much still expecting VAT to be put on later, or more shipping once things finalize. I'd rather have it like you have it, to be known upfront what you can
  15. We're getting closer en closer to finalization. This leaves me wondering with the shipping part with the EU site. My pledge manager is calculating $15,- in shipping, take or leave. I would be amazed if that was to be the whole shipping with my $850 order. But I would love to be amazed! :p Have they mentioned somewhere what is to be expected in shipping and VAT for the EU site?
  16. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/89888-how-large-is-the-zombie-dragon/&tab=comments#comment-1911649 This question has been asked before =) Here's the thread!
  17. Haha, gender doesn't matter for nerdiness, but who knows, it might a football jock later on? If he'll be anything like his parents that's very unlikely though xD It's a boy by the way, already got a daughter age 4 atm, so will be a new experience for the household, a nice balance in here. (At least now I can leave the toilet seat up more often?)
  18. Oh wow. That's a great figure! Loads of options to go all out on those scales with prestigious paint ideas. This will be a tough one to figure out which one of us gets to paint this :D
  19. Allright, cool! I've got some reading / testing to do. Reason I'm asking is I've still let Argent stand unpainted due to not having a proper planning for him. Slapping some silver on him does not seem right. I want him to be proper platinum or special, and these colorshift paints seem to be able to help on that
  20. I've got something for this topic I think. This past weekend, I had the pleasure of reveiling to my family the gender of my upcoming child, due to be born in February 2021! Now, we had been planning to make it a big party, having a nice cake or some other kind of surprise, but ... covid. So, instead of placing the decision if they would want to come at my family members, we canceled the party ourselves, being responsible adults and all (sometimes at least!). Instead, we had some amazing cakes made by a friend who lives near some of my relatives. We had them sent
  21. Hi all. I've been seeing these amazing miniature results with Color Shift paints. Now I'm wondering, which brands are advised in that? As far as I'm aware Reaper doesn't have color shift paints themselves. I found Valejo Color Shift, 3 types, but they all say they're meant for the airbrush. How well would they work if brushed on? Any experiences / tips / other form of comments? Please, let me know =)
  22. Thank you! Thanks! Yeah the colours i picked on the armor surprised me in effectiveness. During the pick I was concerned slightly I might be matching colours there that were no match, but they turned out quite allright. I think I used like 20 different Reaper Paints on this :o
  23. Finished the Frost Giant King! Link to show off: https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/93034-77591-frost-giant-king-box-of-good-will-acquired/ (Is this appreciated in this topic? If not let me know)
  24. Thanks Glitter. It's getting a good spot in my trophy cabinet now :)
