  1. aka Groundhog Day. We went out to check with one of our personal rodents. Sadly, Morrigan saw her shadow, so I guess we're in for another six weeks (wheeks?) of winter.

    Orc Warband Collectors by Yedharo

    Pshaw! What's a couple more busts lurking in the cupboard.

    Black 3.0

    Saved for later. Could be amusing. Not sure how useful it would be for miniatures...
  4. She's separate from the throne. If you look at the pictures you can see the space between her hands and the arms of the throne and the line along her butt. Plus they'd never be able to get it out of a mold if it was all in one piece, even with slide mold technology there's no way to do her and the throne as a single piece.

    Sunshine Figures

    Sunshine figure Bust Kickstarter is live: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/sunshinefigures/girls-girls-girls-1?ref=discovery&term=SUNSHINE FIGURES I'll probably back for a couple. Sucks being broke!
  6. Yeah, a month in Kickstarter time is the blink of an eye for delays. ;) I've got one that's coming up on being a year late, and another that's pushing 4+ months.
  7. I've never received a core set before, so I'm not sure about that, but all the other things I've received have been individually bagged.
  8. They come in standard sealed plastic bags. Not re-closeable. Probably need to buy assorted zip-locks if that's how you want to sort them out.

    Myth Explorers III

    Nice, but not worth $14-15/figure to me.
  10. I gotta say - this is pretty darned awesome! I hope we get to see pictures of all of them painted (someday).

    What's on TV?

    Without having read the randomness thread, it sort of depends on what kind of delivery system their using for the pepper spray, and what kind it is. I know of a couple of instances where it was used inside a cell or holding area and the only person who was really suffering was the person who was hit with it. At least it worked that way with the stuff most of the guys in the department I worked for used.
  12. Yeah, I was so happy to finally see Goremaw! Now I just have to save up the moolah to buy a copy...
  13. Watched "Venom" over the weekend. It was amusing enough in a "sound and fury signifying nothing" sort of way, but if your ability to suspend disbelief won't shut off during a movie? Yeah, this is one you want to avoid!
  14. Finally got to watch "Hotel Artemis" on New Years Eve. It's an interesting movie and I enjoyed it. I think it didn't really do well because it doesn't really fit into any neat category. At it's heart it's a movie about family and the choices we make for, and because of them. I liked it.
  15. I got five in the first go round. Backing to get a couple of bases and a larger holder to go with the pieces I already have.

    Let's ... errrr ... try ... airbrushing a garage kit

    If it's rubbery, the odds are that it's PVC/Vinyl since that's the other material these things are usually made from. If they used vinyl glue to put it together, I don't know what would work as a de-bonder. On the off chance that they used super glue, you might try freezing it. That usually makes the superglue brittle enough to come apart. Just out of curiosity were you using actual debonder, or acetone/nail polish remover to try and get the seam apart?

    Greebo Alastoran (Chaos/Khorne) football team

    Looks like 7 for me since I have Fluffers but no Demogorgon.

    Let's ... errrr ... try ... airbrushing a garage kit

    FWIW, if you can get her apart and then paint her in sub-assemblies, I think you'll have a MUCH easier time painting this. At the very least, most folks leave the head and/or hair separate until everything is painted. I could see leaving some of the skirt panels off as well. Oc course it depends on what was used to assemble the figure before you got it. If it was super glue - no problem. 5 minute epoxy or something like that? Not really sure what would work as a debonder for that. Best wishes for success!
  19. Got this out of Impact Miniatures last Kickstarter. The master was 3D printed, and then it was produced via spincast resin. Pretty much zero clean-up, although they use a pretty persistent mold release agent. I washed it with Dawn and scrubbed it pretty well. Primed it with Badger Stylynresin and had a bunch of areas where it flaked off with the slightest touch. Gave it another thorough bath & scrub and re-primed with Badger and this time it got a grip. Base coat and initial highlights are Tamiya paints applied via airbrush. Highlights and details are Reaper and Vallejo. Then tried out some Secret Weapon and Mig pigments. There's a spot near the back where you can tell it was a printed master because after i applied a wash it picked out the striations. After highlights you can't really see it. Some of the details lose crispness where parts merge i.e. the banding around the gas tanks isn't as sharply defined where it curves down in the back to meet the hull. All in all it's a pretty nice piece! First Chibi I've ever painted, and while I got inspiration from Odin's Chibi's for the eyes, I need a lot more practice to get them anywhere as nice as his!

    Awesome! The beer turned out especially nice.

    Bad Squiddo Games: Onna Bugeisha and the Women of Feudal Japan

    I went for the Bushidoge and Shogun Meow, Ninja's & a badge. Would have like more, but finances didn't allow for it at this time.

    Kristof65's new painting/gaming area

    Okay, THAT is one freaking cool rack! What a great way to organize triads! I was going to ask where you got it, and then read that you printed it. <sigh> I SO want a 3D printer! Cool work.
  23. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/674003445/chibi-siblings-of-conflict-miniatures?ref=friends_launched About The siblings of conflict are here! Attack! this interstellar army of hardboiled girls are ready to conquer your tabletop! Assemble unique squads with powerful weapons, led by brave leaders. They're cute, they're rowdy, they are the siblings of conflict! STRETCH GOALS We're planning amazing, unique hero characters, and more! Surprises await! New Stretch Goals will appear as the campaign advances! Chibi miniatures! Chibis are adorable characters that have lately have made a splash in the boardgaming and miniature community with games such as Super Dungeon Explore, Arcadia Quest, Ninja All-Stars and many others. They're also featured in collectible figurines and in other geeky paraphernalia. This is the NINTH Chibi KickStarter run by Impact! Miniatures and Impact! is partnering with Märchen to bring you some incredible, new Siblings of Conflict chibi miniatures along with sci-fi allies & enemies for them to combat! The funding goal will pay for the sculpting & 3-D printing of the miniatures. The Miniatures ALL miniatures in this KickStarter are provided unpainted. Unless otherwise stated after the name of the miniature, all miniatures offered with this KickStarter will be high quality 3-D prints done on a top end 25 to 50 micron printer (you should not see print lines after priming and paint). As stretch goals are reached we will unlock additional sculpts. The miniatures will require light clean up, being primed before painted and might need some assembly (although we will do our best to keep the figures with as few pieces as possible). You can use your reward dollars to get any of the miniatures in the listing above. Miniature Quality While many of the miniatures in this KickStarter will be 3-D printed, the quality will be a very high level since they are 25 to 50 micron 3-D SLA prints which are very different than ABS prints. Below is an extreme close -up example of a printed figure and how it shows no print lines when primed and painted (with no other prep work). Many thanks to Yeji Kim for her painting of Vanguard Leader Anna (top row) and Jason Turner for the painting of Vanguard Leader Anna and Vanguard Trooper #3 (bottom row)! Shipping Shipping will be charged in the pledge manager after the project. At this time we are estimating $5 for US backers, $13 for Canada and $17 for Rest of World. Shipping of the KickStarter will be EU Friendly and should not incur any customs fees.

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I had five picked, then deleted them one by one. As soon as I took the last one out, the shipping charge went away. Weird...

    Scale75 - The Chronicles of Run

    I went with Aruk'ka, Lisbeth, Loreen (+arm), Jynz & Zhoor. I was going to get the badges for them, but seeing the extra charges for shipping I changed my mind.
