    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Has anyone tested them on Bones plastic? As low cost spray paints, that would be good to know for anyone painting big models.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Reaper Kickstarter Twitch stream is now in progress leading up to Reaper Live at 6 PM. https://www.twitch.tv/reaperminiatures
  3. When your laptop tells you it is at the end of life, what does that really mean? I didn't know laptops did that. With a decent laptop, you could replace the HDD or SSD, and the battery, but maybe you can't with some low end models? I wonder, does the end of life happen to tablets or smart phones?

    Ghoulie bag

    I know there are two colors of paint in the Ghoulie Bag, and they should be Fresh Blood and Graveyard Bone. Anne mentioned them in last week's Reaper Toolbox. I haven't watched this week's yet. I'm hoping eventually this info will show up somewhere people can find it. Kickstarter has messed things up a bit I guess. BCA Pink is usually added to all orders during October.

    Reaper Bones 5 : Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I think most people were happy they got their dragon, even if in reduced size. It is far from a perfect model, though, even at the reduced size.

    Since you sculpted the Catoblepas, I'm curious how you pronounce it. Did you get any information about it other than its appearance?

    What browser were you using? Was the response inside your browser after it gave up on you?
  8. Another thing that might do it is a damaged file system, which you may be able to repair with the Windows program chkdsk. You can google how to do it, and it is pretty simple. I've had a hard drive respond well to that. There are options you can use with chkdsk, and there's a way to run it from Windows Explorer without using a command prompt if you don't like those.
  9. What is the problem? Ask for help if you need it. Data is often salvageable from working hard drives.

    Water, water, everywhere....

    I keep distilled water in a clean dropper bottle that I use for thinning paint. It can stay in there for months on end, and it has never grown anything that I can see. The original jug can last for years, mostly used for ironing.

    Pre-Launch Bones 5 Excitement thread

    I think the dragon has three points of contact, the tail and two hind legs, but it isn't clear to me in that picture.
  12. Don't forget Reaper Toolbox is on now: https://www.twitch.tv/reaperminiatures Anne is painting her Dance of Death dragon today. Working on the head it appears. They are giving away five Ghoulie Bags to watchers, maybe more if they get enough subscribers.

    This dampens my enthusiasm for future dragons. Stiffening with wire is not something I consider a fun job. Are you basing that on the prototypes you saw at ReaperCon? Weren't they 3D prints from resin or filament? It was my understanding that they don't make new models out of Bones plastic until the molds are funded for it.

    Getting to Know You -- Sept 2019

    Never heard of that combination. Is it common? I've only seen sweetened condensed milk in a can. Eagle brand is one of the common ones. Does it have a clever name like the peanut butter and marshmallow creme sandwich called fluffernutter?

    Stuff I learned watching ReaperLive #48

    Other than using a plastic insert to prevent breakage, what else could Reaper or Wizkids do? Apparently doing nothing to cushion the minis was causing Reaper some issues, or they wouldn't have added to their costs to address it. I think part of the reason they did it was to make their retail packs more attractive to stores and customers. If there's a solution that's more friendly to the environment, I'm sure they'd like to hear about it. I think it is odd Reaper doesn't use some cushioning in their metal mini blisters, especially the minis with thinner parts. I know it is something mini makers used to do back in the days of lead.
