  1. It's a trap! She looks friendly then whacks the adventurers with the big cuff on her tail then rips them apart with the big foot claws and feasts on their livers! (Man, that was dark :lol:)

    Maybe I'm missing something in the photos but her skin looks fine to me, a very nice paint job overall.

  2. I generally file down the original mini base so it's much thinner, then I'll score the bottom of the mini base and the top of the base with an exacto and superglue them together. The scoring gives additional crevices for the glue to hold on to and does the same with whatever basing material I use; once the figure is dry I'll coat the base with a mix of 50/50 white Elmer's and water, then pour fine sand over it and let it dry, then shake off the excess sand. And voila!

    I use this.

    Lightcraft Headband Magnifier.


    It works for me, under $20/€20 on most sites like the River or the Evilbay..

    There is an option to apply a headband as well ( included) comes with 5 lenses.


    There are several others like this.

    I had a cheaper one earlier which worked for 3 years but it had a plastic headband ( uncomfortable) and that broke at one point.


    Before splashing on a expensive one I would recommend this or a similar one.




    I use this same one, found it on Amazon for $12. I have no issues wearing it with the headband over my eyeglasses.

  4. A bit late to this post but I am also trying OSL for the first time. Here is my work in progress, one of the figures from the 1982 Grenadier Call of Cthulhu boxed set. I think I may be a bit heavy handed with the yellow highlights; would it be better to do a low white light from the lantern and do more natural colors? Any advice would be most welcome. I have to say she looks better in a shadowy setting rather than in broad daylight, but I'm thinking making it work in broad daylight would be the optimum result.
