  1. @Morihalda Where did you get that palette? I usually use a wet palette, but that looks nifty and fits in tight places, too.
  2. It would be interesting to hear the tale of how this dragon was designed and why he seems relatively soft and lacking in detail. Julie is a fantastic dragon sculptor (among other things she sculpts fantastically), but she's only one sculptor. The other sculptors should get a shot, too.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    You mean the head was not stuck under your skin as you thought? I'm confused, but happy for you. Ticks are the worst of bugs.
  4. Does anyone have a picture of the King of the Jungle (elephant man on throne) that shows the base? I'm curious to see how detailed it was supposed to be. I don't see it on the Bones 4 images page: https://www.reapermini.com/bones4

    Cracked Roc

    Those cracks are in the plastic? If so, the Roc I received does not have those cracks. I would contact help@reapermini.com if you are looking for a replacement part. Repairing with modeling paste, thinned putty, and/or acrylic medium is what I'd try otherwise.

    The Curse of Hollow Hills - Crippled God Foundry

    Crafting Muse paints the Death Watcher: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZpNnif6KVkY It's a live feed, and the initial part is where she shows off some other sculpts in the Kickstarter.
  7. If this issue is as widespread as it seems to be, it is odd to me that Reaper didn't catch it with their own spot checks. We've had other incidents where things have gone wrong, but usually we also get some acknowledgement of the problem. Has Reaper said anything about this yet? I don't remember them doing so.
  8. The Bones 4 Core box is all regular Bones (flexible light gray plastic) as are some of the Add-ons. Bones 4 expansion boxes and the other Add-ons are made of Bones Black. They've said there are no plans to phase out regular Bones, which works better for some figures according to them. I think it depends on the size and shape of the figures, what will work better in the two materials. From what I've seen, Bones Black is nice for sharp detail, but there are a lot of good-looking minis in regular Bones from Bones 4 and previous KSs.
  9. So far, all I've heard on Reaper Live is they will start releasing in June. Hopefully they will get more specific on what and when as we get further along in the fulfillment cycle. What I don't remember them saying is whether or not retail items would be going out assembled. Properly packaged, assembled minis wouldn't break as easily, but there's the issue with not being able to paint things that are blocked, and there's the potential for bad assembly. Bones Black doesn't flex nearly as well as original Bones. I also don't know how hard they are to pull apart if the assembly is bad or parts are blocked. We know the Hut is not easy to disassemble, though it can be cut apart.

    I`m back

    Welcome back to the forums, vhaidra. Your work is lovely and will capture the interest of a great many forumites. I'm glad there are people who want to paint to an extremely high level. The display-level and contest-level paint jobs are wonderful to see. I see no point in making poisonous comments to those who don't measure up, however. I haven't visited CMoN in a long time, so I have no idea what's going on there. I think you are describing almost everyone who paints minis. As they say, different strokes for different folks.

    Thanks for the warning. It now appears the page links are working again, among other things that were broken. Quick service from Kit today.

    Cool Mini or Not Videos

    As in the video quality being lower than current youtube video? Sometimes you need the higher resolution to see things, but not always. Anything recorded to a DVD for playback on DVD players is going to look dated, I suppose. However, CMoN also has download versions of the Dark Sword videos available. I got the Jessica Rich one that way and it is in HD (1080).
  13. Kit's delivered a bit of bad news. Relevant part quoted below. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/85963-reapermini-new-site-layout/&do=findComment&comment=1824192 As little as I personally used the Boneyard, I think it's a shame it has gone away. Sometimes there's no good way to get the things you need without it. Question for the forumites: Do any other miniature companies have a service like Reaper's old Boneyard where you can buy pieces from multi-part packs?
  14. Has Go 2 Glue been tested on Bones? It is not superglue, and is quite cheap compared to superglue. On Loctite's information page, they indicate it works on rigid PVC, so I'm thinking it could be okay. It also warns some paints may not be compatible, but doesn't specify.
  15. Are you going to report the issue? I know Dick Blick will replace poor brushes, but I don't know what Rosemary's warranty is like.
