  1. My buddy who runs a comic shop in a swap meet let me know he got some minis in. Got a pretty good haul. Two boxes of Bretonnian Knights, some random undead, hero, and monster minis, and three Ral Partha Dragons. T'Char, Takhisis, and The Great Red Dragon. Takhisis is missing the number plate, but she's otherwise intact.
  2. Thanks! No new photos, but I've gone ahead and hit up his underside with a slightly darker off-white/brown (it's a Reaper sample, something similar to the Ginger Cookie paint). Next I'll brighten up the highlights in his fur, and I think that'll be done. I've also highlighted the fur cloak with a couple of browns and added in the more neutral metallic color in. I still need to fix up the leather. I might just go with a quick wash, hit up the metal buckle, and then add a highlight. And then I need to add in a final highlight on the sword and chainmail. But he's getting close to done, or at least ready for basing.
  3. Painting up a rat dude for a Pathfinder game I'm in. I wanted to go with an albino white rat look. I had trouble getting the skin to come out right at first. I'd gone with a medium caucasian skintone (Vallejo Medium Flesh), washed with GW Carroburg Crimson, and then highlighted with Vallejo Highlight Skin, a very pale skintone. I wanted to go with a high contrast. It ended up not working quite as well as I had hoped. Adding in some Reaper Old West Rose where the Medium Flesh showed helped a lot. In the future, I think I'll either add a midtone in between the two skin colors, or else start with a pink like the Old West Rose. The end result isn't too bad, but I think I can get there faster, and with a less mesy looking result. I used my Scale 75 steel alchemy set, using their guide for a more blue steel for the sword and chainmail. I think I'll want to add in a bit more of a neutral steel color for the midtones. Right now, it's coming across too blue and green. After that, I need to finish up the fur cloak, do some finishing on the leather belt, and add some basing.
  4. In regards to the spray discussion: Army Painter's been one of the more consistent spray primers in not causing issues. The prevailing theory is that the tackiness is caused by solvents found in certain spray paints and primers. Army Painter is made for minis, including plastic ones, and likely doesn't have the offending solvents.
  5. Mine's been delivered, but it'll be another week or so until I make it home.
  6. People posting in the Kickstarter comments. Someone with a particularly late lock date said they received their shipping notice.
  7. I'd recommend tossing that into the Bones You'd Like to See thread. They've said they actually do go through that thread and see what people have suggested. The people making those decisions aren't necessarily reading this thread.
  8. If it makes you guys feel any better, you'll almost all get your Bones before I get back home to see mine.
  9. Madness? Madness?! This! Is! REAPER!
  10. 25.4 lbs on mine. I went fairly light compared to the first two Kickstarters.
  11. My e-mail's arrived! Still waiting for the link to populate with information.
  12. It was because were estimating around 500 international backers in that 2000. However, we hadn't counted on the fact that one backer can have multiple orders per the system.
  13. I saw my order on the tracker shortly after they started packing today, and still haven't seen my e-mail. I wouldn't worry yet. We'll get our e-mails soon enough, I'm sure.
  14. I might do an unboxing video, but it'll be at least two weeks before I get home to see the minis.
  15. I was excited to see Arizona until I remembered I was shipping to my folks' place in Desert Hot Springs, CA.
  16. Search your e-mail for "pledge complete." That should find when you locked your pledge in.
  17. Generally, so long as the postal code is right, and the city name is reasonably close, it'll still make it to its location. Still waiting on mine. Wave 1, locked in October 5.
  18. I know the feeling! I won't be back in the states for another two weeks, so my Bones'll be sitting at my folks' place for a little while before I show up.
  19. We nerds can get awfully tribal. There are people who will leave you death threats because you criticized a show or movie they like. While this community's generally pretty awesome, you're gonna find some jerks at some point. EDIT: Also, the tracker's ticking along now.
  20. Looks like the tracker is currently not updating, but it is about lunchtime in Denton, I believe.
  21. Doug, have you done any tests on brittleness yet? Just curious about the potential trade-offs.
  22. I think it was just thrown out as an example of the sort of thing that Reaper couldn't have predicted, not something that's ongoing.
  23. Well, in that case, I might need to give it a go. Now let me look up picture of gangrene and rotting musculature on Google...
