  1. Fantastic job! In particular I like the attention to detail with the eye on his armor, and I love his sword! I think the osl effect from the base is subtle, could be pushed a little more, but its also personal taste. Overall really nice work!
  2. This just made my morning, so cute!!!! Well done!
  3. Golden acrylics make some spiffy interference colors that shift between shades which can be fun to experiment with and have a metallic sheen to them. Pebeo I think makes some as well. With both paint companies I would thin them a good amount before applying. For metal metals, I've used GW & Reaper metallics, thin down alot, with several layers built up. You could try using flow improver, or medium with water, to make it last longer on a wet palette, but not sure if it would affect the metal flakes, probably not.
  4. I've used crackle paint that I liked from Michael's, called 'Distress Crackle Paint Clear Rock Candy' (pretty sure it's not candy, I will doublecheck tho, I really hope it isn't haha!). I used it more for an ice effect over an already painted area, & it dried clear with some delicate crackle effect. I think Golden paint also has a crackle medium too though I haven't tried it. I think from your experiments I like the pva glue result the best. What about the cracks air dry clay would make, (though maybe unstable over time), or maybe doing an impression into sculpey or green stuff? Just a thought. I like the effects you got!
  5. Hello :) Not sure I'm posting this in the correct area, (apologies if I didn't), but it is fantasy and a really cool sculpt, albeit not miniature per se. The video has some interesting shots of in progress work. The final result looks really amazing! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeozljBmJTw&feature=youtu.be&utm_source=ActiveCampaign&utm_medium=email&utm_content=Double+Down+on+Darkness&utm_campaign=Dark+Galadriel+Video+%2B+Dark+Crystal+Pre-order
  6. Not sure if they would count as a hummingbirds swarm but maybe it will help for reference pic, and it's a cute topper in Rocket League:

  11. Both the show & comics are great, I highly recommend them, even if you're not into zombies / apocalyptic stuff. Also, Morgan is unlocked! And there is the possibility of Glenn in riot gear and Michonne's pet walkers!
  12. Aww yeah! Also... for those interested in the kickstarter, the Governor and Morgan (w/ staff) have been unlocked. There is a darn spiffy stretch goal that awards Michonne's pets too.
  13. The Governor has unlocked! And hopefully Morgan soon to follow!
  14. Thanks everyone! And thank you again Ced1106 for reposting to BGG! Regarding the quality of the figures, the ones I painted were resin masters. I haven't personally seen the final figures material in person, but I think they will be good. Particularly because AMC was overseeing the likeness factor so heavily on the master sculpts. I can't imagine they would go through all that effort to release a final product that wasn't up to par. I do wish I had had abit more time for painting and was better at photography :). And in retrospect I should have photographed before starting as well to share more of the progress. But ah well. The clear bases don't come with the game, I made them separately as I found in the course of painting some of the duplicates were to be given to the actors. I was afraid with the masters being so delicate they would break on them.
  15. Darsc, I asked in the comments area for you, "$1 plus the character add-ons I suppose but that will miss out on the KSE SGs." And also this, "If they looking just for minis of the main characters since zombies can easily be found elsewhere they could do $1 + $32 for survivor packs 1 & 2." The creators recently revamped the tiers so the best place to look would be update #11 where they clarify stuff. Happy to share! :)
  16. Scalewise they are 35mm but I have to say the scale didn't bother me as much as it might some. For example, the priestess from Pathfinder, Alahazra from Reaper, I could see matching sizewise to them. She is smaller than some of the say Klocke figures, but it's not jarring. It is interesting with these figures because of the proportions of their bodies are in scale without exaggerating for emphasis on heads & heads. So the faces take a bit of work, but I have to say the likenesses are really fantastic. I have a feeling that was a big part of the authorizations behind the scenes with this game, getting likenesses approved etc. I think in the comments area the creators posted a similar comparison photo with zombicide figures. Darsc, I wasn't on the marketing end of things and initially I wasn't able to show figures till things became unlocked. So on publicity, I think this ks may have hit some bumps in the road. As to the backing levels, I think it is addressed in the comments area by the creators who recently revamped the tier level. I backed initially at the Early bird comic con tier, but then upgraded to $219 for addon stuff later.
  17. Hi! Sharing some of the painting I did for Cryptozoic's new game (in kickstarter form with 5 days to go & funded), The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary. It's based off the AMC series The Walking Dead. I painted these for Cryptozoic Entertainment's display booth at San Diego Comic Con & they will be at their booth at Gencon. I'm a huge fan of the series in both tv & graphic novel formats so this was really exciting to work on! More pictures are also here: http://minicreatures.blogspot.com/ And check it out! The actors with the miniatures at SDCC! Totally cool! Thanks for looking! :)
  18. Dude they're totally awesome figures :) gooble gobble! :D edited for English Also I should add, this project is funded and still live. My tagging skills are horrendous.
  19. Hi, I'm pleased to share this awesome kickstarter from Cryptozoic, The Walking Dead: No Sanctuary. It's based off the AMC series The Walking Dead. I apologize I should have posted this sooner, just been very busy. But there are still 5 days left to join, and I think it's totally worth it! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/cze/the-walking-dead-no-sanctuary The game design looks intriguing, designed by brothers Adam and Brady Sadler. The figures are exceptional, very finely detailed and sculpted by Stephan. I was really impressed how well they came out. I was asked to paint some of the masters for Cryptozoic for their booths at San Diego Comic Con and Gen Con 2016. As a huge fan of the series both on AMC and in graphic novel incarnation, this is a really exciting project! Also check it out, this is so cool! The very talented actors Andrew Lincoln (Rick) and Norman Reedus (Daryl), with two of the miniatures I painted! I believe they were gifted the ones with the larger clear bases. How totally awesome of them is that? I can die happy now :) https://twitter.com/cryptozoic/status/756988054590533632 I posted some photos I took of the miniatures I painted here: http://minicreatures.blogspot.com/ Come join an awesome kckstarter!
  20. Hi, just a heads up, I'm working on painting more figures for Fairytale games & Dragon Tides for Gencon in August. I painted the first group as well from 2015. I wish I had more info on the shipping side of things but I would say since I'm painting 70+ figures things are still underway albeit slowly. Hopefully it gives some hope to backers still waiting. :)
