  1. Wow! Your colour palette in this is really well balanced. I can only echo the others and say how impressed I am with the face as well. Top notch all around!
  2. Ooh! Really digging the scheme you're rocking!
  3. It is lovely seeing some Helldorado action in here. Fantastic paintjob on a fantastic mini!
  4. I Love it :D you've seen there's an Elder Scrolls miniature game coming out from Modiphius shortly? The rules were released for free just the other week
  5. "No lollygagging!" You make that sculpt look a lot better than I ever thought could be done. Great job!
  6. Great stuff! I don't know what it says about me that my favorites are the marble tables. I might have to steal that idea for mine!
  7. My Umber Brown I got with my Bones 2 shipment has pretty much zero coverage. Ive added an agitator and shaken it thoroughly so there isn't any hidden stashes of pigment at the bottom or anything. Calling it a glaze would be an overstatement. I'm guessing this isn't how it's supposed to be? How's the coverage of everyone else's umber brown?
  8. Heresy Miniatures has a dwarven inventor that includes a separate pipe-carrying arm. Send him an email and see if he'll sell you a bunch as bits? (edit: link removed)
  9. Looks good! One trick to make most questionable eyes look good is to put the pupil (that is the word right?) over to one side. So the white of the eye only shows on one side of it. In my experience, that's the easiest method when the sculpt is uncooperative.
  10. This place is just way too nice, supportive and inspirational. It's high time I stop lurking and start posting some of my fiddlings. At the moment, I'm all about Confrontation. I've decided to bring my collection of minis usable in Hybrid (the boardgame) to a respectable gaming standard. Here's a quick shot of where I'm at with the baddies. As can be glimpsed, I use any brand of paints I've gotten my hands on, various sorts of brushes and the occasional auxiliary product. You can't really see it in this picture, but I tried my glazing medium for the first time on the glow from the green vials. It definately made things easier. The bases are all individually sculpted, because I'm crazy like that. I've made a few different dungeon base silicone molds and cast some resin stuff, but the Confrontation minis are so fragile I really want to keep the tabs on them if at all possible. More to come :)
  11. So apparently I had a wedding to attend on saturday. I have spent a couple hours throughout the week on my Hybrid baddies, though. Stage 1 of my "Pimp all the boardgames" project :)
  12. I'm up for the 12th of july. Yaay marathon!
  13. I thought I was done with these sorts of shenanigans. I once painted a space marine army in 36 hours straight, and I've been involved in a few too many 24h comic days. But if this forum sets a date for something like this, I'm in.
  14. Did I miss something here? I thought the oni monk was just Talin having fun with something that cropped up in the comments conversation, but now people are referencing it like it's a preview of something being sculpted for the kickstarter. I mean, with enough support I'm sure it go that way, but AFAIK no such thing has been confirmed by reaper peeps?
  15. Mine arrived just the other day as well, ordered on the day of release. I believe Dark Hammer are located in Switzerland. I had the same reaction to the top flash stumps, but the face was fine on mine. Great castoverall IMO. Looking forward to see what you do with it!
  16. Shiny sounds like a very good thing for a pile of gold coins ;) Non-metallic metals isn't a special sort of paint. It's a painting technique for simulating the shininess of a metallic subject matter without the use of metallic paints.
  17. I'm so happy I woke up to see the million being broken in! Sleep safe OneBoot, the EU team is clocking in. We'll take over from here.
  18. Reading through this thread just put this huge smile on my face. Heidi, I'm so happy to see the warm welcome you've received around here, and it's inspiring to see how fast your painting is evolving. I like this place!
  19. Great work! The new base is a major upgrade, big props for actually going ahead and ripping him off and making a new attempt. My verdict: Success!
  20. I plan to play Skulldred http://skulldred.blogspot.com and Rack & Ruin http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/rack-ruin-a-campaign-based-fantasy-miniatures-skirmish-game and probably some Warrior Heroes: Legends http://www.twohourwargames.com/wahele.html
  21. First off, that sword looks like it was sculpted broken. The easiest way to give him a whole sword, would be to cut off and replace the broken hilt with a whole new sword (well, minus handle). If you don't have any spares yourself, either ask a warhammer playing friend if they have any leftover chaos weapons or pick up one of reaper's weapons packs. If I really wanted to sculpt a new blade for him, I'd do my sculpting on a flat surface and then pin my hardened replacement blade in place. Best of luck!
