  1. Update #2. A friend told me to soak her in isopropyl alcohol. Why not, right? After 6 hours of soaking, the orange tint did fade slightly, but still remained. I mean, if iso cannot remove whatever it is, I'm starting to think it's an inferior metal of some type. With a knife, it does scrape off too. I also decided to prime over her regardless of the taint, and it's stuck so far, so I think I'm going to get some superfine grid sandpaper and if I ever get it again, hit it with that. I don't know what else to do other than sand and prime.
  2. Temperature and humidity are normal, though it has been higher humidity the past few weeks, but I don't see how that could affect anything. Burning talc you say? I guess it's time to give her a nice long bath to see if it comes off.
  3. Update. I'm starting to get more metal miniatures with this. It's kinda freaking me out that it feels like my miniatures have contracted some kind of super contagious miniature version of Covid. I just tried washing Jada in both water and Simple Green to see if the orange patina would come off and it doesn't. I think I'm going to have to do a massive priming of all my metals to prevent this from spreading (if that's what it's doing). I'll try the other cleaners you mentioned. I don't have a good feeling about priming over this, but what other choices do I have?
  4. I have a Jada Twinsuns miniature (04014) that has an unusual effect happening to the metal of the mini. Sorry for the glare of the image, but see that "orange" on it? What is that? I have a second Jada mini that also has it, but to a much lesser degree. If I prime over whatever this is, will the primer stay? I also took a knife to it and gently scraped and it does appear to come off. I was just curious if anyone else had experienced this and what they may have done. No other Reaper metals I have experienced this.
  5. I finished reading the Green Gryphon free accessory given by Reaper, and I noticed other adventures at the bottom of the PDF. I had acquired all the others, except the title piece. Anyone know where or how I can acquire a copy? I've searched everywhere and nothing comes back, so I might have to hope on someone else having one. Thanks!
  6. Yes! That's the one. If it's not out yet, how do I have it? Heh. The only thing I can assume is Reaper sent it as a promotional mini or perhaps it was one of those bonus minis you can get when you order $40 or more? Now that I think about it, it has to be that because I always put the mini name and number on the bottom of the base just so I can avoid having to look it up. I didn't write anything under this one which tells me it didn't come in a blister. Thanks everyone.
  7. It's a 2018 warrior mini in Bones plastic. He's in plate, wielding an axe in his right hand and with an open left hand reaching out. Longsword on his left hip and wearing a full helm. Anyone help me? I've searched Reaper's site for every descriptive I can think of and nothing. I've done the same in Google Images. I'm completely out of ideas what mini this is.
  8. Thank you Wren! Exactly the info I needed. Now, to wait for the core set to restock. :-)
  9. If I were to purchase the entire paint line of MSP paints (the $659 option), which paints would NOT be included in that purchase? Same question if I were to purchase all of the triads. Which paints would be left over? I'm basically wanting to avoid duplicity, and the best method of purchasing the paints. I want to start with the triads, but I'm not sure which of those would be duplicated upon purchasing the $659 option. Thanks.
