  1. Hey Patrick

    actually it not as many as you think, you don't get to put 2 MSP bottles per round slot, but it's close. I ran out of space on the main 4 tiered one when the blue Metallic MSP came out, thus been using the 2 tiered one, but now that I sold off my VMC & MGC (YES!!! THEY ARE GONE NO MORE!!!!!!!!!!! ha ha) I can now start using the other 4 tiered one I have


    even with all the MSP on there, this is still wasted space thou, one of these days would like to build somthing I've seen on here that resembles stadium seating & such (each paint raises a bit higher to see the colors & such)





    actually, on the one i had, it had round slots, anjd in between each slot, i was able to put a msp..lol

  2. i loved mine..lol, bought it off of digital matt, i beleive..




    alas, it has since fallen apart and been trashed, i will buy anew!




    (if you find a link to it, please post it, that site is uber rough to navigate)

    Agreed. MM (no, not "Metallic Metal") has a lot of specialist goodies for the mini freak enthusiast, but the e-store navigation could use some polishing. I didn't find a caddy there, however, so I'm going to nab one from this site instead:








    that looks precisely like the one i got from matt.... ok heres the details then




    the slots or spacers whatever, will hold GW paint pots and pro series pots with no trouble (80 of em) but realistically, double that number, and thats about how many msp's you can get in there

  4. www.milsims.com had packs of the paints in SKU# order. Might just be a local thing. Personally I'm getting to like RMS more and more and VMC less and less; I see VMC completely leaving my pallette very soon.



    m not endorsing one product over another... the qaulity of paint doesnt matter to me, not in this situation, should reaper start releasing packs like ive seen vallejo, then i'll be happy..




    lets say:


    adventurer packs - City: 2-3 blues, greys, brown or two, reds


    adventurer pack - woodland: browns, greys, greens, blacks (earth tones)


    race pack - elf: few elf skin tones... etc




    basically im looking to buy some of the master series, but im not going to shell out the money for the entire set just yet, and the triads?... they dont cut it for me, i want to be able to buy a single back and be set for a certain styling... the triad system is nice, from a painting standpoint, but not from a logical perspective... im just not going to buy 4-5 triads and only end up with 3-4 colors i wanted in the first place... what i had been doing was ordering minis and letting reaper just send me samples..or ordering specific bottles to replace GW paints, or pro paints.... im looking to replace specific colors, and sets, when i bought my paints in the first place i knew what i was going for, if you looked at my paints you'd see 4-5 greens, about 6 different metals (a few of my own) and browns... with a few other colors thrown in, like a blue or two, a red or two..




    i didnt need to have 8 different reds.




    like i said, i dont really care who makes the paint, so long as its a color i need, or want.. if reaper released an adventurers pack style set, id probably snatch it up, because research would hopefully be done to show what colors are being used the most for what..




    meaning im not likely to find tentacle pink or some color id never use..




    base colors are important to me, having 8 shades of a color isnt, and thats what would happen if i bought the master series base set, id end up with colors id never use... we gotta keep the paints happy by using them... unused paints get depressed

  5. I use an ArtBin 9000AB with some dividers that I made myself. It will hold about 160 MSPs, which should start to get tight at the next release.


    Not as cheap at $15, but if you get it at JoAnnes make sure you use the 40 or 50% off coupon (I paid about $8.50 including NY tax). It does have a handle though...




    i t hink i like this one, i'll have to look around...




    has reaper started releasing packs like vallejo has?... id love to buy the full set and all, but at this time, it might not be feasible...vallejo had some really awesome concepts releasing earth tones, civil war colors, and such all packed in small plastic cases..

  6. Heres the workspace!


    I thinks its fun to show off where we create our art!




    nice set up... my old desk looked like this










    for my new set up im not sure what im going to do, someone on the boards here showed off a tackle box like system for the master series paints, i may end up doing that.... my idea for them wouild be to get some sort of clear tackle box thats tall enough for the msp's and im gonna put a drop of paint on the cape so i can see em.... my desk has been deconstructed for a year or so now, so if i can get it all set back up, i'll take some new pictures

  7. this is solely as a starting ground of things that ive done in the past (suggestions always apppreciated)




    i dont want to overwhelm, at any rate, these were a few of the peices i did before i stopped painting, the ones im most proud of, for whatever reason (painting techniques, things learned, etc)




    all were primed with grey primer (as i found it easier to paiunt over than white or black) all were done using a mixture of GW. reaper pro and reaper master series paints




    i left alot of minitures in my bqttle hive unfinished, i hope to get to them soon

  8. welcome back. 20 month old daughter...she is about old enough to start helping paint, congratulations!


    at this point... phew who knows, i'll be lucky if i can find a place to set up my work bench again... lol

  9. well, im back into painting minis again, though slowly this time, and probably only D&D'ish minis (or just whatever strikes my fancy)


    i took a short (bout a year i guess) break from painting, had some good times with my family, my daughter is now almost 20 months old!


    at any rate, i'll probably order the master series set sometimes soon, as the paints were kinda fun to use, i still have my old paints, it'll be interesting to see what held up and what didnt..


    im also going to be scanning over the site soon, see what changes have come in the last year or so, should be fascinating.



  10. yeh, i took like a big healthy bit of glue and some eqaully healthy bits of glue


    mixed with a popsicle stick, smeared on... when it dried it was kinda ridgy, but i was gonna use it for a desert base anyway..lol

  11. well of course i like it.. its awesome..lol


    makes me realize another reason i have to step away from painting, i suck..lol


    its not your fault bout the damage, heck you put fragile, and a hand written fragile thing on it..lol



    its all on the usps

  12. phew... lemme tell ya... the post office wasnt nice to this one... but thanks to bleujennas stuffing of a plastic deck box (im not sure what else it was in a previous life... ultra pro card protector, bout 2 inches high... anyways)


    see the case was cracked, as as i was taking it from the mail box i heard this light rattling coming from the package... and got worried..lol



    turns out that yes, the case was cracked, and the peice that broke off of the case was just rattling around... the lid wasnt on very well, but the sheer power of the stuffing she used kept the mini in the box..lol


    i tried to get a variety of shots.... some came out fuzzy, but i did manage to do better lighting..lol


    peice of unused toilet better over a flashlight... gave a nice difussion i thought... if i had a more powerful flashlight than the one i picked up while waiting in line at walmart (for 2 bucks) then it'd been better im sure.


    ok, im not going to post img links, im gonna post normal links... that way i dont flood down this thread

















    im not sure which mini it is, i know its a warlord mini, i know if from the dwarf faction, and i know its a girl (the boobies kinda gave that away :P )

  13. ive never been a big fan of SENMM... just never looked realistic to me..


    looks good, but not realistic


    Have to echo this. I'm also not a fan of NNM, to me it looks good in a photo but not in person. Saying that though, the actual work is top notch. Looks good.





    yeh... i mean most stuff ive seen by jester does look good, i just cant stand NMM/SENMM.... lol


    both assume you'll only be looking at the mini from one angle
