  1. I'm tempted to enter the Jabberwocky just to add a tally to the 'it's a dragon' column.
  2. I had Khavith in my hand at my non-local gaming shop that I infrequent; I'm regretting not picking him up after seeing him painted.
  3. I lived in little rock for a few years and can sympathize! The smallest snow shuts the city down. I think I was the only one in my apt with a shovel.
  4. Oh and I did make a wet palate from a blister & sponge; it's a big help.
  5. Thanks for the advice so far. The Skinsaw Man was definitely started before I learned about thinning paints, which is why I might strip him and start over. The wife unit supposedly got me a l2pk for xmas, but I think it's #4. Dr. Lucky (from paizo's board game) is my next work in progress- I think I did a little better on thin layers of the coat. The pants still need some layers.
  6. Next, the mocking beast. Mocking Beast: http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/mocking/sku-down/03517
  7. I'm a newish painter, and have a bunch of projects that I'm working on. I'm working on extending my range of skills beyond "slop on some paint." To that end, I would like to share some of my current projects and ask if any of the wise and talented folks here could give me a few pointers the next step. First up is the Skinsaw Man http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/skinsaw/sku-down/60033 He's my oldest project here, and he definitely needs highlighting. He's been washed in black ink (maybe a bad idea). At this point, I had been using poorly-to-non-thinned P3 paints. He might b
  8. My goal once finals end is to finish the 6 minis I have base painted. I need to learn more advanced techniques. I have two in their blisters: a bones Minotaur, and a goblin riding a dog. On order is a small horde (12!) pathfinder reaper minis, and a learn to paint kid. I'm not supposed to know about the last one, as it's an xmas present from the wife- so it'll take priority over the others. I will finish the kit and the started minis before the end of January. The others I'll try to finish before the bones shipment in March. <note: I've been using the login name since the mid 90s
  9. He looks better than the WotC prepainted version! Good job.
  10. I would like to be in on the next one too! Unless there's an 'Autumn B team' being formed, then I'm in for that too.
  11. I've been eyeing this one http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Pathfinder/sku-down/60136 (I almost bought him in my LGS today, but settled on another mini). Would he make a good #2?
  12. Thanks for the feedback. I am attempting to start with a darker base, wash, then highlight. I think I may have over done it though. Do I wash again after the highlight?
  13. What about painting the filler spaces with a glowing color (red or neon green) to make it look like there's an unholy light animating him/her/it? I don't know if I'll have the skill to do major surgery, but I think I might try to make it glow.
  14. 10 bucks says it's nayrbrepaer, the alternate universe Bryan who is evil. Or good. Or has a goatee. Doesn't have a goatee? I forget, are we in the good universe or the evil one? The answer is: you always pick evil. That way, people have fewer expectations from you. And the uniforms are always better. @ReaperBryan: You're allowed to have a life, you know. I read it in a manual somewhere. Now we have a timecop reference.
  15. Hi all! Great work so far. This is my first post, I hope it's not too late to join in on the fun. I picked up my paint brushes for the first time a couple of months ago; my previous attempts at painting involved 90s Ral Partha's with ENAMEL paints. If anyone has a suggestion of how to get that junk off, I may eventually go back and repair my old attempts. This is my first Bones attempt. So far I've washed in black, then base coated with P3 Rucksack Tan. The brown is Reaper Pro Woodland Brown, and the grey is P3 trollblood highlight. I've got mostly P3 paints, and am slowly raisin
  16. Is it too late to join in on the fun? I just started reading through the forums- I'm 'returning' to the hobby after a failed attempt almost a decade ago (and one 2 decades ago!) to learn to paint. I have a bones ogre that I just started. To my shame, my last attempt at painting was some old Ral Partha Dragonlance minis that were pretty beat up, and because I had made model ships and planes as a kid I tried painting them with enamels. If anyone has a good way of stripping enamel paint (I've been trying a few suggestions but they all seem more effective for acrylics). I'm now startin
