  1. I have just been over at another site looking at sci-fi terrain. I think I know where my money is going this month. Oh, skeletons. Pass.
  2. I don't think we've heard anything official about Chronoscope (through KS channels) only Ron's teasing. I'm getting discouraged, too. There are other places I can spend money if this KS doesn't have anything for me. I know it's the slow week, but I'm seriously contemplating cutting back my pledge. Right now I'm looking at ~$75 worth of items we're interested in. And the $50 for the expansion is only because DH wants the new Yephima.

    Kev!'s Bones IV Cart

    Nicely done.

    Kev!'s Bombshell Raptor Hatchling

    Nice. Going to add that to my Thanksgiving paint binge.

    Kev!'s Constanza - OW166 - Mexican Villagers

    Manufacturer? Nice paint job.
  6. Those are gross enough to make me reverse any decision I might have had about getting any undersea expansion. Let's hope it doesn't end up as an undefined blob in the finished piece.
  7. It would be good as scatter terrain if placed on a small base, something like an old CD or piece of card.
  8. Cheap and easy method for ruined walls: torn up cork. I did this in Bob Ridolfi's basing class, it's two pieces butted together with a couple broken toothpicks stuck in. Cat litter and sand on the base.
  9. Here is a selection of random stuff I found on the garage floor. I know not everyone has such great treasure on hand, but it s an example of the sorts of things you can find and use on bases.
  10. Just chop up the sprue with a knife or clippers. I suppose you could twist it for a different effect. Slice up a plastic straw or stir stick for a piece of pipe or board. Bits of wire mesh are great, as are pieces of textured foil. And IIRC GW sprues come with all kinds of extra bitz that can be plunked down on bases. Gouging some holes or crevices into plain plastic bases can work to make ruined pavement, IF you trust people with knives. Here's one I did a few years back, I literally used trash off my paint table: blobs of dried paint, wire, scraps of balsa, tiny pieces of dried moss. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/45235-painting-excuses-summer-of-monsters-single-non-fantasy-entry-thread/&tab=comments#comment-628734 Some stamped bases here, but note the piece in the middle which I made with bits and a square of textured foil washed with watered down ink. https://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/73943-stompy-robots/&tab=comments#comment-1532618
  11. Some things I do: Paint the base first. It is easier to paint the base before you sand or flock, than it is to get paint down between the crevices after. So if you are doing dirt (tea leaves or crumbled cork) paint it brown first, then put your cover down and it will look much nicer even if your coverage is not great. Fine sand. Not the coarse stuff sold for playgrounds, but the finer stuff found in craft stores. Goes on nice and even and looks good. Then you can add to that with chopped bits of sprue, twisted wire, even small wads of paper to create a littered scene. Sand needs to be painted. This sounds stupid, but plain sand on a base looks odd with a painted figure. I'm sorry, but watching glue and paint dry IS part of the hobby. :) Texture molds. It's a little tricky if the figure has been glued already, but not impossible. The key to making it look good is to have a thin flat layer of putty on the base, not a mound. If you only get partial coverage of the base, use fine sand to hide mistakes or gaps. Use a tool to make simple grid lines in putty. This can usually be done around glued feet. Have a look through the hardware store for items with textures that can be used as stamps. I like water slide decals. I have a collection from military models and anime kits. On a plain dark grey base a couple of random numbers or stripes can look really good. Likewise, a few diagonal yellow hazard stripes painted on are simple but effective. People will complain at first they can't paint the lines, but they have an army to practice on. :) The search function is giving me fits, I've done a bunch of the Reaper NOVA and IMEF guys but can't find them in the forum.

    Getting to Know You, October 2019

    Since I had it cut short this spring only about 18" now. There's still enough to tie/pin back but it doesn't get caught in car doors any more.

    Lovely colors and texture.

    Nice effect on her blade.
  15. Elementals look ok. Want to see some sculpting and not just concept art, though. 3-headed giant is something I don't need or want, but it's apparently making other people happy to fork out cash.
