  1. I haven't read the rules for Mantic's game, but I have heard that they go back to an earlier edition of WHFB. As for the models, they also seem to go back to previous editions of WHFB. (Big surprise given that Mantic was founded by ex-GW employees.)
  2. Now that you mention it...I hadn't noticed how close the two were. Griffon tan seems to have a touch more yellow to it...but the difference is so slight as to be negligible.
  3. Excellent job! Love the subtle coloring on the banshees. :D
  4. Some of the older models are just beautiful! You did an excellent job.... (PS: I got addicted to reaper paints too...they are mostly all I use now! LOL)
  5. Sadly, I didn't freehand the hem...but I followed the molding quite well ;) LOL As for the basing, the fluff doesn't change color at all over time. My sister has one I based in the same way five years ago, and the color hasn't changed at all. I think the picture ended up a bit darker than I thought...The wings were done with the bone triad, then given an overall drybrush of linen white. I'll try your suggestion on the next male chest I do and see how it turns out.... Thanks!
  6. Soon as I'm finished greenstuffing the gaps in her back...I needed to let the firstg part cure before I was comfortable movin g on. :)
  7. So I had this awesome idea to add angel wings to this Sophie a friend gave me, since he'd lost the original wings to her. None of the wings I had fit right...so I'm fixing that. Would like some critique on the green stuffing, as well as suggestions and helpful tips. :) So, yes, have at it! :)
  8. Love this. My grandmother was a Den Mother. Wish I could show her this piece!
  9. is mostly harmless. ^^;

  10. I tell you what....I'm drooling. That...well, that is just a lovely piece of work!
  11. It looks like the two reapers would match pretty close :)
  12. I goofed and put the wrong set of wings on him...but he still looks good, IMHO. I love doing the cloud basing, but basing at 3am is seeming a bad idea now. Comments and critiques are always welcome!
  13. Oh I love it! How did you do the slime on the base? :) Excellent job on the brain itself, BTW. :D
  14. LOVE the NMM. And the greens are gorgeous. I can't quite get the hang of NMM myself, but this is excellent!
  15. Just eyeballing it, I would suggest the reaper Ghost white. A slightly darker tone than ghost white would be Snow shadow. Or MAYBE Astronomican grey from GW. Links to each when you click the names. ^^; Hope it helps!
  16. I've only been painting since 2006...but I might have a few tips to share? I collect brushes. I really do. But of all the brushes I own, my favorites are my reaper brushes and my first set of armory brushes. The local store owner here gave me a sample of a brush cleaner that I now use on a regular basis. Its badger air brush cleaner...what I do is cut an 'x' into the orange cap inside. When I need to soak a brush I press the handle through the 'x' so just the bristles are in the cleaner. I only use the cleaner when I get paint I can't get out, or when I'm done painting for the day. I keep the caps most brushes of mine came with, so to better protect the points. I store them, point up, in "thingie". (Long story short, no one touches my thingie, at the risk of losing an arm. LOL) I keep a soft cloth to wipe my brushes clean. Its a cloth diaper, actually, that a friend suggested to try using for my brushes. Someone suggested to me that using different rinse water for metallics and non metallics works too... But I'm lazy. I don't...but maybe it would work for you?
  17. Maybe try using GW's mechrite red and then your red over that? (It will still take a few coats of it to cover, but maybe it will be easier?)
  18. I'm suddenly feeling really lucky here. I have a few minor scars from my hobby knives, and I used to go to work with super-glued fingertips, but have never managed to amass any "real" damage.
  19. This is very useful and has just been added to my stash of links. ^^ Now...would anyone happen to know what paint I could use to get close to the Dragon Gold? I loved it, used it for almost everything I worked on....and can't find a replacement close enough to satisfy.
  20. I've found for doing free hand it works best to sketch it out on paper first. Gives you a good idea of how you want something to look. For simple freehands (swirls, dots, ect) I just put brush to model and go for it. For more complicated ones, I like to sketch it out with a pencil onto whatever it is I'm doing. As with anything, several thin layers of paint work best. :)
  21. My opinion is a little redundant here, but I myself use a combination of different techniques. Layering is time consuming, yes, but well worth putting the effort into learning for some things. Drybrushing and washing also have useful applications too. Doing layers and then washing gives a beautiful effect, and just so happenes to cover any small mistakes one may have made!
  22. Few are the times that one can get a rare dream miniature that had a limited production. We are one of the lucky few to find a Dragon's Don't Share mini new in its packaging. Some may call it sacrilege but we are going to paint it and share with our fellow friends our journey on the way. Front of the box: Back of the box: Finally, the miniature! Before cleaning it and assembling it:
