  1. I started with the gray primer as a glaze on the raised areas. Then I went over them with the fluorescent yellow, kind of thick. Then I mixed dark blue with the brush on varnish, and coated the figures. I darkened the deeper recessed areas by painting dark blue into them and painted the bases with a thin wash of it. Then I finished them with some gray primer on the heads and hands. buckyball
  2. Here are the ghost pirates from bones 4. I painted two groups of these in a few hours with three colors. buckyball

    Frostgrave: Perilous Dark

    Is anyone else interested in this expansion to Frostgrave? I had switched to playing Rangers of Shadow Deep, because I enjoyed the cooperative play. But now with Wizards Conclave and Perilous Dark we may play co-op Frostgrave. buckyball

    Already broke my "reapercon paint poke stick"

    I use large metal paperclips as paint pokers.

    Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Rangers of Shadow Deep

    I will be arriving at the convention center Thursday afternoon. If we can find a place to meet up, we could start planning Ranger of Shadowdeep games then. I was thinking of running some of the basic scenarios to teach the game on Thursday and Friday I will also bring Ghost Stone and some terrain to play the scenarios. There are two introductory ones for rangers level 1-5 and two scenarios for rangers 10+. I dont know what the experience range of the players is, but this might be fun if we can get some games in, toward the end of the convention. buckyball

    Buckyball's kickstarter vampire workshop

    The core set was called a vampire box. I think it is fitting that it should not die. Buckyball

    Frostgrave, Ghost Archipelago, Rangers of Shadow Deep

    I went ahead an ordered Ghost Stone for Rangers of Shadow Deep. This might be fun to try at the convention. There are two groups of rangers in the game. Some of the scenarios are for low level rangers. They involve getting clues and fighting regular monsters. And some are for rangers level 10+. These involve deep strikes against key adversaries. I think the low level games might be good for new players. And if anyone has a high level team they could tackle the hard stuff. I think most rangers who have played through Burning Light should be 10th level. But I dont know how many people would be available with high level rangers. buckyball

    Buckyball's kickstarter vampire workshop

    When I started this mass painting project I had no idea how often I would need the figures. Originally I had a vague idea of what games I could use them in. But I could not have anticipated the new games that came along, that happened to use fantasy miniatures. I am very pleased with the use the miniatures get in all the games I play, and I am glad I painted so many miniatures just to have. I think there is a base number of figures gamers should just finish so they will be available. Then you can build on what you have already painted as the need arises. buckyball

    Awaken Realms Etherfields

    I did this as well. There are soooo many backers that I am hoping to take advantage of some buyers remorse for the core game maybe. But I did want to make sure I am able to get the playing cards and art book.
