  1. These are a few questions posed toward Reaper and any other casters that read this.

     

    I was wondering , Once you have a green from an Artist how long does it take from green to metal?

     

    Is there alot of adjustments involved in the greens to make them castable , i.e. undercuts, cutting arms , weapons seperate, ect/.

     

    once a mold is made , what would be the average casting run?

     

    thanks for the info , best to you.

  2. Well at least I'm not the only one who had this problem. I use Milliput a great deal , but it will not with stand the molding process for metal casting.

     

    thanks for asking , but not at this time , but good news for you ,there is a company that produces the V-7 Whitewind, check this forum for it and other 2500th scale models.

  3. Hi all .My first posting here at the scupting area. I am a sculptor by trade , mostly larger peaces in clay or wax , then converted into resin castings.

     

    I've tried to use the Blue /yellow ribbon many times , but I keep running into the same problem every time. I always have to scrape the inside of each color out to get a clear mix and I get very little out of each pack and spend an annoying amount of time doing this. I always find a skin on both the blue and yellow , but mainly on the yellow. I always cut away the center and then have to skin the yellow , which always leaves more blue. If I mix it evenly with out removeing the skin , the skin will just not blend. So I end up giving up and going back what I am use to. the only problem with that , is it is very hard to find someone who can convert resin , or plastic into metal.

     

    has anyone else had this problem ? if so how did you get past it?

    big thanks for any help .

  4. Hey I ordered two new Archers from my local gaming store (Big believer in supporting them) but when they came in , they were the small ones I already have.

    Could someone who has a new one post the measurements, H,W,.

    I've sent reaper a note to see if I could trade , but i won't make sure I'm not trading for the same thing.

    Big thanks

    chris

  5. Did the Larger Archer ever hit the stores? I have yet to find one and would really like to find at least one , two would be great.

    thanks

  6. Do you think the Reaper guys will read this and take heart our requests?

    Besides the young Dwarf and the Traps , I would love to see more creatures. I love the Barrow  rats that Jason Wiebe sculpted , and the new EYE Beast by Julie Guthrie. Mybe someone could sculpted a new Bullet monster, call it a land shark......could be cool if done right.  :oo:

  7. Hey great to hear , and congrats. I know how you feel , we just have our 4th son june 24th. HAHA , how comes the sleepless nights , glad to see some one else will be going through it too. HEHEHEHE :D
  8. Hey not so fast , come back here Matt! Give it man , we needs more info !!!! :O  give a brother something ............................................. :D Ok please..
  9. SkorpionDrache  thats a great ideal , I don't know whats wrong with me , I cast resin every week for my models ,and I've never thought of doing a Gel monster myself.I really like the ideal of the glitter imbedded in the resin. with diffirent dies you could create rainbow of diffrent looks.

    very cool. :blues:

  10. I would like to see Reaper and thier great sculptors come out with a Young Dwarf with a short beard , not a kid , but 18 to 25 year range. A small group of us were looking through our minis and discussing what we would like to have in our collections . And none of us have ever seen a young dwarf sculpted. all of them look like 50 years and up, with  raging weapons or a beer mug in hand. give him some basics and a starter weapon , short sword or single bladed AX. This would be the early years starting to adventure in the new world.

     So what would you like to see?  :upside:
