  1. yeh, had a feeling id want something thicker (also had a feeling id want to avoid the fan fold thing) the main thing was making sure that was indeed the correct product... just need to find the thicker stuff..lol
  2. hmm... well, yeh i suppose it would... lowes website is based on zip codes, just enter mine 35811 and you should be fine since its important that i do have the right stuff found at the store in my area..lol
  3. so... umm... thats the correct stuff in that link?
  4. heh, i think my wifes are about that long, she uses this clear nail strengthener stuff... i'll see if i can find the bottle to figure out what it really is its suppose to make nails stronger or something
  5. i really dont like em myself, now, my wife does grow her nails out some, but nothing like freddy kruger... i prefer short nails personally.
  6. ok, i think i found some at lowes, but can someone give me a link to make sure i got the right stuff... the stuff i found was a stiff blue board (not pink like i keep seeing), its bout 1/2 inch or so thick, and the sections are bout maybe 4 feet long, and maybe 2 feet wide id really love to get into more complex basing... so that maybe i can make some good money (supplemental cash..lol) on this stuff i think this is the stuff i saw in the store (i hate look at lowes.com, its so disorganized) http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=prod...5348&lpage=none they also have this stuff http://www.lowes.com/lowes/lkn?action=prod...-LOW&lpage=none
  7. you first say stick with one brand, then say not to...lmao which is it? by the way, no matter what reaper might say, or GW or vallejo, there is not a single brand of paints that can please everyone, or that can do everything.. which is why we all pick and choose
  8. i find myself attempting to buy as many different earth tones as i can.. but seriously, i usually stick to no more than 3 of a color, but ive got like 8 browns..lol
  9. alot of people underpaint meaning they do all their black lining, then paint over it but lewave some gaps... me personally?... i use washes applied with a 20/0 brush..lol but only to specific places
  10. well, see i think thats where im at a bit of an advantage, i buy from alot of different companies, that way im not stuck to just one color/set
  11. meh..lmao either way, its not as horrible as you all make it out to be.
  12. im having a blast with my grey primer.. the black primer from GW actually masked details from my eyes, and white makes them too hard to look at for too long..lol the grey seemed a perfect balance for me
  13. see, now thats what i find is interesting.. on GW's site, their paints are 2.50 for normal paint and 3.25 for metallics where as on reaper the pro paints normal cost 2.49 (same with metallcs) the MSP stuff normal paints are 2.99 with metallics again being the same 2.99 price so far with pro paints, reaper has em beat by $.01 on normal paints, and obviously beat on metals... but the MSP stuff actually costs more..lol now im not one for bashing a company, or bashing people bashing a company, i just think people do need to understand that the price difference isnt what they think it is. just an info smash.
  14. bill gates most presidents most cartoonists
  15. oh, and before someone gets me for off topicness.. thats an awesome paint job..im loving the nice fading into white thing you've got going on
  16. cav are just plain hard to paint for me... not physically hard.... but its hard for me to think of a simplistic color scheme... now now now, dont flame me here... lol in most cases, you'd be useing maybe 2-3 colors on a cav.... you'd use more on a fantasy mini, especially anything by werner (fiddly bits) theres buckles and bags and boots and skin and hair and eyes and... phew..lol
  17. Prophet were you referring to Reaper paints or GW paints? If you were referring to GW paints all of the ones I have used or bought have been very thick and not good to work with. That is my own experience. Maybe you got some better pots of GW paint . . . I dunno. GW paints. my first set of GW paints were thick, but they hadnt been used for 3 years. the replacement pots i bought were in much better shape, and so were the paints themselves.. GW paints are fine for beginners, they CAN get a bit gloppy, but you'll notice that if you take the shaker out of the MSP/PP reaper paints it'll do the same.. GW paints dont have a shaker, i suggest either buying a sprue of the skulls reaper sells, or just buying a bunch of pro paint bottles..lol
  18. thats why i use quick steel, it comes in a premixed tube, you cut up a bit, mix it up, then start working it... course, be careful, because in its curing process it gets fairly hot to the touch (not hot enough to melt minis though) it bonds extremely well to the warlord bases, and everything else ive used it for..lol
  19. well, sure, the CR2 helps.. lol ive got it myself, still use it, although using it for the books was the least of my uses.
  20. but not the first?! what kind of fangirl are you..hah
  21. it was weird cuz i knew i remembered seeing more posts last night.,.lol
  22. lol cool.. lucky guy too...lol
