  1. Thanks for the tips guys. I might try the Dremel approach first. My luck with knives in general...not great. I have the scars to prove it. Haha.
  2. I know it's not strictly about painting, but I've not come up with a good solution. What are some good suggestions for removing the large chunk of pewter that the mini is attached to when you buy them? To date I've just left them on and painted them the color of the base, but I'd rather try and get more creative with my basing and they're pretty cumbersome.
  3. Thanks for the info. I'll have to check that out.
  4. Are there going to be any demos of Warlord at GenCon? If there are then I might just wait to make a decision until after then. The summer is going to be kind of tight on cash and after D&D4E and GenCon I won't be able to afford getting into any new games until after the con.
  5. So I'm in the market for a new fantasy wargame. I'm considering Warlord, but I'm quite jaded because I can't ever seem to find just the right game, both in rules and in business model. I think Warlord might be what I'm looking for but I have a few questions. Outside of painting, is there a whole lot of prepping the figs? I tried another game, but it honestly felt like the game was only there to provide a practical application for a modeling hobby. I don't want to spend a bunch of time *having* to pin and glue and file and set just to assemble a single fig. I'd have to do this to just about all of them. It was a huge time-sink that wasn't very fun. I want a game where I buy a mini, maybe glue it to a base, prime, and paint. I guess that was it. EDIT: I'm a bit confused by this Rage Chronicles thing. Is it going to replace the Warlord Rulebook and army books? If so, would it be in my best interest to wait for these to come out and save myself some money?
  6. Well, due to the resounding recommendations for MSPs I guess I will be ordering up a couple of triad sets in the coming weeks.
  7. I'm a pretty impulsive individual and am not very good at holding on to funds long enough to order something.
  8. The store I frequent has Pro Paints. There is another local store that I hear carries MSPs but I refuse to go there because unless you are interested in buying Magic singles and joining in thier tournaments, they really treat you like a third or fourth class customer. Anyhow my question is do they (either officially or through very knowledgable painters) have triad lists for the Pro Paints line?
  9. Being new to the craft, I wasn't sure if that would work or not. But now that I know that it has worked for someone I will go ahead and see how it goes. Thanks.
  10. IPA doesn't seem to have much of an effect on the MK figs either.
  11. I read through the pinned thread dedicated to the compilation of favorite stripping materials. What I'm wondering is if the materials known to be good for stripping plastic figures would be good for stripping MageKnight figures. They are made of a different kind of plastic then you would find in, say, Dragon Strike or HeroQuest boxes. They are a good deal more flexible and I was wondering if they might melt the figures. Does anyone have any suggestions? I played MK for a short period, but bought alot of minis. I figured on further cutting my teeth on those before I move up to the more quality models that I see sold here.
  12. Thanks for the welcome. I thought it might be an ill-placed thread for this forum, I don't know if an exhibition of early works would be exactly "showing off" but I thought it would be a place to start.
  13. Hello. I'm Necro. I've had an off and on (mostly off) interest in miniature painting for about 5 years now. But in the last 4 or 5 weeks I've really been into it. I've been learining various techniques from tutorials and whatnot on the internet and can see a great improvement over my earlier..."works". I know that to be truly good at something, especially something like this, it takes more then a month and a half of practice. That's why I'm not generally discouraged in what I've been doing. Each new peice seems to have some aspect of it that was better then the previous one, if only marginally. Anyhow, I was wondering if anyone still has some of thier earlier works that they still have around or have pics of. Would it be possible for me to see them so I have some standard to compare my own stuff to other then the great peices that I normally see? Or would it be easier for me to post pics of my stuff (I shudder at the thought)? If this thread is in the wrong forum, I apologize.
