  1. I picked up some better (stronger) nippers and just took a little more time getting it together. But yeah, thanks again, everyone!
  2. where did you buy this guy? I could actually use a figure like him. lol
  3. this. I do have slotted bases. that's not the issue (fortunately) The issue is that I can't get my current (limited) cutting tools between the base-slot and the long-bar that's the basis of the spru (the one with the part number stamped in it)
  4. So, I'm expanding my horizons, and I got a sprue model. yay. Unfortunately these spanish inquisition boys have slotted bases that run flush with the sprue holder. It's a fairly hard resin, and I can't make any dents with my hobby knife. ... so ... what tool do I need in order to get these slotted bases to disconnect from the core sprue? :c Thanks in advance
  5. Found this painted picture of the Reaper model. That one looks like it's close enough to what I need. May just elevate him a little so other figures can stand behind where the tail is is all. ^^ thanks! Funny you say that! The whole point is I'm making a villain for Descent, namely that white dragon that appears on the box cover art and nowhere else in the game. lol So yeah, Valyndra's a great model, but sadly won't work for my intentions. ^^;;;
  6. something I've found to be super frustrating is that a lot of the Amazon listings state the product dimensions in terms of PACKAGE dimensions. There's a lot of instances where that differs from the actual model itself. Being said, the Nolzur one looks like it fits the bill close enough. =) thanks for the heads up. and yeah, I'll check the others as well. Overhang's fine as long as the overhang isn't ground level (i.e. I can still get minis in on the adjacent spaces).
  7. yeah, that's the other size of dragons I kept bumping into: 2x2 or 3x3. 8\ ... but none 3x2
  8. Specifically looking for a dragon that would fit on a 75x50 mm base. I specified plastic because metallic minis of that scale get pricey. :c So yeah, it's kinda hard since companies are really horrible about giving any sense of how big their minis are (I mean, an unflattering picture of the mini standing on a 25mm grid paper would genuinely help tremondously) ... and dragons tend to either be tiny or table filling. ^^;
  9. soooooo... here's the beginner-level question. I do want to use more of the cheaty-technical paints like gloss paints, irridescent, metallics, etc. buuuuuuuuut ... water doesn't behave ideally with them like other paints. (lost some detail one one model I painted) ... would paint-grade thinners like llamia medium work? or will i need other stuff for the special effects thick paints. Thanks in advance
  10. what company is this from? not seeing the SKU in reaper's store
  11. Thanks for all the feedback ^^
  12. general quick question my brother's getting into the hobby (painting things down separately at his house), he's doing pretty good over all, but he's running into an issue with Nuln Oil. Basically, any time he uses it, there's a bit of a shine that results from it. For metallic/armored figures (like an imperial probe droid or storm troopers), this is fine. But for other organic figures (like a wookie) it's basically resulting in them looking like they're in the middle of a rain storm. So, I'm not there painting with him - I don't know if this is user error - but I was wondering if you could answer a couple questions ... A) is there a technique that would cause more "oil" shine from Nuln Oil, or less of it? (i.e. how do you get a more matte finish without having to rely on heavy matte spray-on-varnish) B) is there an alternative black shade to Nuln Oil that doesn't leave as shiny of a texture? Thanks in advance!
  13. What size base did you use for this? That looks like a 75x50 mm, but I can't really tell ^^;
  14. hmmmm... she didn't seem to mind the spiders that I painted previously from my descent collection as much. (those I actually painted ghost-white/gray and she could stand them rather than looking away). So maybe if I painted some spiders up non-spider-like she'd be able to handle it better.
