  1. As done as it's going to be I think. I turned it in, now we'll see if it wins. I think she looks pretty tasty.
  2. Making progress. The brown primer really made it look like chocolate, but I felt like I needed to shade those areas rather than leaving them solid.. Probably a mistake, but the part I tried it on has the complete wrong finish for chocolate so we'll see what I do next. I have some spray that's glossy and some that's matte. I think I'll try glossy first... we'll see! The skull is "done enough for me," the claws are good though the chocolate still needs shading to match the body now... And I just got some white sand that'll work perfect as sugar coating for the wing leather.
  3. Picture a chocolate donut with sprinkles! It'll work, I think. Neutral colors with bright colors look great, it'll make them pop.
  4. Gotcha, I'll test it on another mini first
  5. Ooo that sounds cool. Though it actually made me realize I have some clear nail polish that might achieve a similar effect. Hopefully that works ok. Thanks!
  6. Oh ok, good to know. I was thinking of using some sprinkles, so maybe I'll spray them with something first.
  7. Thanks, the gemstone thing is a great suggestion, I'll look into that. I did a little googling and saw someone saying their army looked like it was made out of chocolate after being primed in brown, and I actually have some brown primer so I'll try that on the limbs since they're separate. Hopefully it'll look right without much work. I might use actual candy and seal it but I think it'd be better to avoid that when possible just for the longevity of the mini. But I'm not above doing that if needed. Thanks!
  8. Possible ideas...need him to look delicious
  9. So I'm about to enter a small painting contest and while I think I'm *ok* I have a few specific questions on how to achieve a certain look. I want to paint my bones Kaladrax from the original kickstarter. And I want him to be either guarding a candy horde OR be made of candy. Maybe both. My question is, what's the best way to get a nice chocolaty finish? I figure the leathery part of his wings can be something like sour-patch-kids texture, his claws can be 'candy coated' which is semiglossy, but his bones could just be chocolate. I just want to make sure I get that sheen right. Also is there a good way to paint something to look transparent? Any tutorials would be super helpful. I thought maybe I'd do a few bits as "twizzler" or gummy or jolly rancher. I want to give those areas the translucent look without doing too make conversions (I just want to paint, ideally, since I'm already doing a big mini with a big of a diorama. Conversions seem even more over-the-top.) The other option would be to give him a 'sugar skull' look. He's already a skeleton so that might be pretty. And I could still surround him with candy. Or maybe just do his skull that way? Any opinions would be welcome. Oh also I have a 3d printer so I could print some fake candy to add to his base and cover the rocks and stuff a little. and also some REAL candy, because why not.
  10. I heard somewhere that we're not allowed to have a trading thread, is that true? :o
  11. to update my own idea, I talked to Ron in the comments of the KS and he actually told me about another company that used to make some official whitewolf minis. So assuming it'd be a pain to then get a license, I'd settle for some 'generic folklore' and 'non-wod' minis I guess. :P
  12. This would be great, and could double for steampunk/victorian/deadlands depending on the details. Some not-downton-abbey characters would be funny.
  13. I really feel like they could make more character minis, non-violent ones. They don't have to be specific careers or tropes, they could just be people. It may not seem interesting but i'm sure they could do something.. :)
  14. Scroll back about 8 pages or so. Or, wait patiently, and I'll link you back to the post. ~v got it, thanks! you da best
  15. Do you have a warlord list from the first KS?
  16. Don't forget there were some mummies in the first kickstarter set. Could be other nef models in the first one too but I'm not sure. At this point even if they don't add more it'll save some money to create an army, but I probably won't bother until they make the horseback guys into bonesium. They're pretty costly, unfortunately.
  17. Ha! To get back on topic (least we venture into a zone which is one of danger!), how about a set of Pencil Pushers -- something (not at all) like the Nerdy Comptroller and chubby HR Matron? Useful for any number of white collar bureaucrats and non-combatants. good idea, those would also be great for glasswalkers, and could be used for all sorts of other world-of-darkness stuff. Lots of people just wear suits too, and fbi agents government coverup guys etc.. Some white-collar characters would just be awesome for so many reasons, but i'd like to see a little more personality and just better concepts for this type of mini. I always feel like the modern ones are a little lackluster, and while it's not like fantasy where you can give a guy a ridiculous hat or sword to make him seem more interesting.. well, maybe more dynamic/interesting poses (not necessarily action, either) would work.
  18. The >G guys are pretty cool; I'd check with them about making officially licensed ones before making knockoffs. (Though I think their own minis might be in the works for an upcoming game.) I wonder how hard it is for reaper to get licenses for that kind of stuff, personally I think the path finder minis are some of the best sculpts in the last few years so I would be very excited to see more licensed minis. The dead lands ones are great too ..
  19. reposted from a thread, since it kinda belongs here. I'd like some World of Darkness / Dresden Files / Supernatural style modern monsters. Folk-lore stuff. Some modern vampires, werewolves/garou, etc would also be awesome. Officially licensed Whitewolf minis would be a bonus of course but I'll take what I can get. A mage doesn't require any special copyrighted stuff, but some monsters would. I'd love some fomori or black spiral dancers if we could get them. Listmode- A lot of interesting modern humans, to be used as magi and hunters, kinfolk and regular folk. FBI agents, cops, etc are always needed. The more "men in black" the better. Vampires. Clan-specific if licensed, or just a nice variety of 'character' models that look a bit more interesting than your average joe. Werewolves, specifically all the forms of the Garou and some representing different sizes, weapons, clothing, tribes, etc. It'd be cool if each werewolf character had multiple forms sold as a set. Fomori and other tainted spirits and demons, general 'bad juju monsters.' Fae, Wraiths, general gaia spirits. Props like vending machines and lamp posts etc A few "christian-esque" demons, mummies, etc might be cool. General "real" monsters. Wendigo, modern ghosts, satanists/witches, slendermen, whatever. Some eastern folklore monsters would be cool too! Again they don't have to be official whitewolf minis though that would be neat, all of these could be done in a more generic way. It'd only make them more versatile and able to be used for the supernatural game, or the harry dresden game or whatever.
  20. zzz not gonna get a goal 'til tomorrow probably, since they'll be in bed soon. this kickstarter is forever takiiiinggggg I want excitement man! stretch goals every hour! cmon ppl sell your houses pledge your life
  21. I collected some of the kickstarter spoilers from the comments and put them in the /tg/ thread, but I'll post em here in case anyone didn't see- "On Monday we'll bring the giant spider back up for consideration into Bones." "Bob's working on a certain monster from the Saturday morning cartoon from the 80's that I referenced last night. NOT TIAMAT! :)" "Not Tiamat, not Venger, not not-Tiamat. Not Uni. Everything else is fair game though. :)" "The ruins you see in the video are pretty cool. But they're...occupied..." "@Wade - Nope, not stuff Anne was doing, although she's painting the new barrow rats (wow!). And Talin is still doing stuff for us...amazing stuff at that. Some of it showing up in this KS!" "Some pretty cool stuff. Let's just say there was lots of stuff being created. Stuff that will satisfy folks with different tastes in gaming genres." "I can deny brushes. Our brush suppliers could not keep up with the response and we don't need things that we are 100% certain will cause delays." "@Corey: we might be able to manage PDF of the current rules, but there is no new rule set to release." "I would also like to confirm based on your feedback, that *IF* we do other expansions in the future, they will be more cohesively themed." "I can confirm that we hope to include an unlock for Cavalry models." "How about more Great Old Ones?" "@Shane - Lovecraftian Mythos. Last time around C'Thulhu was very popular." "@magnus, Nyarlathotep, Azathoth, hastur, Shub-niggurath, to name a few." "@Nate - Cavalry, Gauth, Marthrangul I can confirm. A lot of the others I cannot, but that doesn't mean they aren't going to be. We do still have a few blank stickies, in case of cool ideas." "Oh, yeah, Angels, too. That 3114 Deva Angel, and some new angels, and some classics." "@Philip: Gauth and Marthrangul, too. And Cavalry. And Sci-Fi stuff as an Option. And stuff you guys don't even know the names for." "@Magnus - Stormwing does exist on one of the sticky notes, yes." "@Kyle - absolutely! Our goals are like sticky notes, and we move them around in response to such things. Recently we moved a dragon out, in response to the recent reaction to Verocithrax, so wish lists are very helpful."
  22. I'd be very surprised if they didn't do that again.
  23. Nefsokar horseback guys and some Anubiii warrior guys. Other than that, more themed sets like the sylvan ones were. Underwater would be fantastic and there are so many options.. also would like a cold-weather set, a desert one, etc. Not everyone plays games in middle-latitude deciduous forests. :) Oh and I think I heard some requests on /tg/ for "cavalry cavalry" and "modern/scifi props." I'll go ahead and second those!
  24. Yea I noticed a lot of those necropolis guys. This time it seems more uh.. is it reven? Anyway, good start for anyone who wants an army. I'm excited, that giant scorpion and big horas lookin guy are gonna save me some money. Anyone know if there's a kickstarter trade thread or if we should wait on that?
  25. hey whats goin on in this thread lotsa talkin i think i missed something but i was wondering if anyone had a list of all the warlord minis included in the last kickstarter, sorted by army?? :) there was one upthread for THIS kickstarter but I can't find one for last year. plsandthankslol I only count a few mummies for nefsokar but I just wanna make sure I'm not missing any.
