  1. thx and aye its a very good protective coating..but definitely needs a dullcote when its done
  2. if you just prefer painting to gardening take alook at these scenic resin bases..for the 25/30mm they work out to be about 60 cents each..which is awesome and they look really nice if painted up. http://www.modeldisplayproducts.co.uk/index.php?route=product/category&path=38_50_55 firestorm games ships for free if you order about 50bucks worth(pretty easy to do) heres some screenshots of them
  3. so been slowing down abit..but did manage to get the next 4 rifle teams finished I got all the tanks build from the heavy artillery box set. 1 IS-2 and 4 ISU-122/152 . I used magnets in the hulls and all the Gun barrels so I can use them in which ever configuration is convenient. I used the armypainter army green colored primer on them and the last 2 SU-122's i'm trying to see how I can speed paint the vehicles without to much fus(got about 24 tanks,10 transports and 5 armoured transports to get thru) after the basecoat I tried a couple layers of drybrushing ablend of the army green with reaper tanned highlights. after that I painted the details on the tank(wood trim,ropes etc) and the treads..the treads I did in a dark grey then used a wet drybrush tecnique to add gunmetal grey to the higher ridges that would be worn to metal. after that I then used army painters Darkshade quickshade with a large brush to varnish the hull. I didn't do the wheels or tread since I need to flip t over for those parts after the roof section dries tomorrow. When thats done I'll apply the decals and try some weathering pigments. overall I thinjk it will do for tabletop quality. I wish the army green was russian green(deeper color) but for the speed I think it will do. its still wet I'll see how it looks when its dry.
  4. glorious! I love pics like this....just makes me grin ear to ear
  5. most brass rods for pinning metal mini's should work really well with Bones and be pretty easy to drill by hand. I can see it being a real necessity for things like this with a small support point. now I just gotta find them at a regular store for cheaper then the hobby stores sell them. all for a brass rod kickstarter say "AYE"
  6. for the plastic mini's I've boiled to fix bends so far I just use a silicone pasta spoon thing to hold the figure in the boiling water,like the one below. That way there's no pressure on any part of it and it kinda sits loosely till you remove from pot and are ready for the ice bath.
  7. well we all know goblins are wee folks..with wee babies ;-)
  8. i find the best podcasts are when there are a group of people that love the hobby that are goodnatured and are having fun..you can tell when someones having fun and its infectious. Some of my favourite podcasts have been the early days of 1upyours..it was gloriously fun listening to all 4 different perspectives..laughing arguing what have you..it was the best part of the last console generation. the H.P. Literary podcast..two guys that work in the film industry going thru all H.P. Lovecrafts books ..expressing whats awesome about them..whats horrible about them. they were like the Lovecraft book club you always wished you could have been a part of. most are fan based unofficial ones..so I can't see why reaper would be opposed as long as you don't try to claim to be associated with reaper in anyway. and watch? is this more a video show like tabletop or did you mean listen?
  9. pathfinder goblins are my favorite kind of goblins.so much personality..Great job

  11. thx man..So far I've finished 43 Flames of War based teams so far.. still got about 14 infantry teams left..working on the next 4 Rifle teams atm.then it will be on to gun teams I guess thats what ya get when you order bulk discount army bundles My Reaper master series 5-0 brush.has given up the ghost.it actually lasted along time..but its a goner now..at this scale I just find the RMS 0 is to bulky from the recommendation in another thread I ordered some Rosemary&Co Series 33 brush's I tried the 2/0 tonight..its really nice..the hairs are longer then the reaper but they seem slimmer..the 0 seems like its 2/3rds the size of the RMS ones.. Heres hoping the point lasts long..I really love the shorter handles(don't hit the mag light so much )
  12. Got two generic Command Teams(good for 1iC and 2iC) a couple Komissar teams and another observer independent team for artillery. I gotta admit..I'm feeling abit weary of doing these same guys over and over.. Might just need to take a break from these guys soon.. I just keep trying to remind myself that once the bones arrive I'll be overwhelmed in newness and to just keep at it and get these last sprews of infantry teams done.
  13. I think there are about 22 figures unlocked ..not bad..If your in for the miniatures as much as the game its hard to passup..love the concept art and figures we've seen so far
  14. i agree ahayfor its just another medium..some sculptors will excel with it..others will excel or prefer traditional materials...its all good there is room for both
  15. ya thats true too recruittions...so hard to decide I'm sitting with a CDG 220 pledge contemplating moving to the Book of Eibon 325 pledge(if it hits the bonus GOO)..but I don't know which 3 addons to get..all are so god darn cool
  16. the reason I'm torn on azathoth is that his faction is a neutral non playable faction..which the free 9 GOO you get for 200+ are all neutral as well.They suggest using one less neutral GOO then their are number of players..so I'm kinda wondering if its gonna be an either or situation...either use something like azathoth and his minions as shared resources...or use the other neutral GOO's... if thats the case already getting 9 free neutral GOO's I'm not sure azathoth is all the crucial from a gameplay point of view..where as Yog-sothoth, Tsathoggua's and Ithaqua are full playable factions that I'll want. dont' get me wrong..I want them all..just not in the budget
  17. I definitely love what your doing with the ghosts.. I think the drybrushed light green/white highlights while maintaining the majority of the translucent green is great.
  18. so got the 3 anti air teams finished. overall I think they worked ok..i used some fine ground cover flocking instead of sand on these ..which seems to work just as well with some regular static grass mixed in...the magnets hold well I can pick both the truck and the base up by the figure just held by the magnets.. looks abit weird having sod in the back of the trucks..but what ya gonna do.its a reasonable compromise I think for a better gameplay resolution .I think i prefer the darker green for the gun itself and will use the darker green on guns for anti tank teams and mortars. pics abit washed out due to lighting..but will do :)
  19. Your legion army's coming along nicely. I like this guy but from the picture I think when you start on the carnivean you should try a darker wash/shading in the cracks of the carapace before highlighting it. It would help with contrast..right now it looks abit to neutral(tho it could be the photo) and perhaps consider taking your last brown highlight color,add a dab of tanned highlights or linen white and either lightly drybrush the top edges or just thin it down and give it more more slight lining highlight at the tips of the ridges...it would really help make it pop. reguardless I like what you've done with guy.
  20. so got the last 4 infantry teams based dipped/dullcoted and flocked. its 2 more rifle teams and two more MG teams(they're the 4 infront) heres all the infantry teams so far The Russian horde is filling out pretty nicely. I've dipped the DshK teams and painted the bases.they'll be ready for final assembly tomorrow night. Im gonna do some more experimental flocking since they're not sculpted bases and if they work out ok I'll proabably do the rest of the large base gun teams the same way. in the meantime I''ve started painting 2 more command teams,two more Komissar teams and another observer team. with league game tomorrow I probably won't finish painting and dipping them till friday.
  21. I've had a few bottles from the LTPK that are about as thick as Citadels pots, even shaken alot..I just figured it was a fluke of the kits
  22. ya this is a tough one...very cool but very expensive.definitely in wargaming prices not typical boardgames....tho from the sounds of it alot of the addon's won't be coming out with the initial kickstarter shipments so i'm wondering if it wouldn't be better off waiting on the expansions. I think I'm gonna stick with the Cultes De Goules level ... The msrp is very close to the pledge level for extras so I think I'll just wait till they hit retail to think about getting them.
