  1. I'm really just posting this to share the deranged rabbit hole of bad photoshop renders that belong to the "I'm not saying it's aliens..." community





    None of the figures on the table are a single scale beyond "generally 25-32mm".  Anything in that range works. 


    I went with the incredible woman reaper mini for now, but it is fun to see these other suggestions (and find out about the other companies)

    There might be some in StarGrave range on North Star.

    Surprisingly no.  Females yes, vibe no.


    Basically, on a scale from star trek (clean tidy engineered designer lines) to 40k (bolted scraps held together by duct tape and belief) = nords are on the vacuum sealed pristine sanitary end of things.

  3. You'd think it would be easy to find one, but it kinda isn't.


    Specifically, I'm looking to use her as a pleiadian alien (aka nords).  Some UFO Cultists believe these tall pretty blonde human-looking aliens are benevolent teachers of all things metaphysics (though, they tend to visit drug users in the woods).  Typically they're described with long hair and wearing jumpsuits.  Something i find comical is that every straight faced UFO Lore video will expressly state that the women have large busts (every single time).


    So ...


    As a troll move on people i play with, i was going to spring one on them in a game, and subject them simultaneously to lizard man conspiracy theories. 


    So... pleaidian lady ... jumpsuit, long hair, bombshell figure, 25-35 mm in height. 


    Sadly can't find any after a considerable amount of hunting. 


    Assistance will be reimbursed in my heart and wishes to you.

  4. Yeah, I'm a freelance character artist - so I'm used to working with "soft physics" in the line drawings. I definitely appreciate the reminder for modeling, though! (Not sure i would have remembered, given I'll be a rookie fighting against the medium here. Lol) 


    These will be covered, partly due to me having nieces/ nephews over frequently.  So that advice of not trying to do it all in one go is very applicable.  :)


    And big thanks again!

    Green Stuff.

    If you don't use all of it, keep it in an airtight container, better yet, put it in the freezer for future use.

    A little round/pear shape and a tiny dot will do the trick on this subject.

    That adds up. I bought a Chinese knock off a few years back when i initially started the hobby. 


    I'll get some fresh green stuff and go from there. Thanks for the advice on how!

  6. Apologies upfront for the topic, but I'm wondering if y'all have advice for adding a 2nd breast to the Slaanesh daemonette figures from GW.


    I'll pass on explaining context.  Short sum, though, is i have some 17 daemonette figurines from Games Workshop Warhammer Age of Sigmar (they're the twisted single-breast claw-arm foot soldiers for the Slaanesh chaos god faction). And i would like to add a 2nd breast so they fit in with proxy models. 


    I'm fairly new to the hobby, hence inexperienced with model conversion.


    So yeah, outside of sidestep solutions like "just sell the figures", do all y'all have suggestions on how to approach this? 

    - i.e. objects that could work? 

    - or am i stuck using 2 part poxy? (The bunch i have went hard and is near impossible to fine sculpt with)



    Thanks in advance

    I think he is trying to get the slotted base off the sprue, not the feet off the base.  





    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)

    there are some 2.5" to 3" long plastic dragons from Toy Essentials on Amazon.. 


    Also the Bones shadow Dragon 77108 is pretty close to 75mm long, the tail makes it longer.. 







    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!

    Descent has a dragon called "Valyndra" that fits on a 2x3 footprint.  But you'll be paying for Descent content that you probably won't want.


    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.  ^^;;;

  9. 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).

  10. 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.  ^^;

  11. 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
