    Mossbeard (Bones 4 Kickstarter Mini)

    Did you underpaint the "moss" areas with a dark green first? How did you attack the moss?

    Runequest Classic Edition Kickstarter

    Make sure you look at the new RQ version. But I’d call it done as well. Great to get the classics again that take little change to make them useable in the new RQ.

    Recommendations for "True Colors"

    But better they produce them at a pace that keeps good quality than pump up production and have the product suffer. They'll get there at some point I assume.
  4. I did not have to return mine.

    Paint Equivalents

    It's almost a triad!

    Sacrifice to the Reaper gods?

    [SPLIT] Vortex Shakers

    I can only speak to variable speed as I just mix Reaper sized bottles in mine. Mine DOES have variable speed. But I don't recall EVER turning it down from the maximum. So I run it at 11.
  8. Ron messed it up I am sure.

    Shiny anti-matte

    I'll second this. Use both and never had a problem on any figure. As well as Testers Glosscote as well. I also will prime through the airbrush (something I've started doing more frequently) with the Badger primers. I recently got a bottle of the AK Interactive varnishes to also try through the airbrush as I do larger pieces.
  10. I also want to go nuts on him with foliage, flowers, Moss, etc!
  11. I think this was meant as a jab at a much larger miniature company who regularly changes over all their figure lines and paints .... Emailed them last night on the mistake with the paints and I already have a tracking number with the replacement. Thumbs up to their support!
  12. Which is why I use a hair dryer or craft heating gun, not a construction site level item. And I agree on slow cooling. I use the cold water on larger pieces mostly.
  13. Ice water or just hold in position. In the case of the troll and owlbear, I just put them into the base to cool down. They fit perfect then and have not moved a millimeter since then. But it is safer than heat. I think heating it up slower is probably better also. Hair dryers can get quite hot. I happen to have a craft heat gun my wife uses which gets plenty warm. As I recall it was not expensive at all and again I don't have to mess with boiling water and hang out at the stove. But a friend uses a hair dryer.
  14. I've gone away from boiling as I find a heat gun (or even a hair dryer) works just as well! That's how I corrected my owlbear and troll so they fit into their bases. It was quite amazing how easily it worked. And I don't have to mess with the stove or have hot liquid sitting around that can cause problems.
  15. Not nearly enough. I think I can hear the screams of delight over here in Algonac!
