    Citadel Contrast paints

    It's interesting stuff. I'm firmly in the "play with new tools so you know what's out there" camp, so I picked one up and did a few tests. I tried mixing several mediums and paints to see if I could match what is happening with it, the closest I came was Greenstuffworld's Master Medium (I absolutely love this stuff, BTW, everyone should check it out) + Reaper Clears. Unfortunately, that doesn't really lend itself to speed painting as the clears only come in 6 (? I think) colors so nearly everything would end up a custom mix. It still might be cheaper, but whatever. They are pretty good at what they do, but to me they look half done. I think it still needs thinned if you want to get away with them as the only thing on a section, otherwise the coverage is a little too intense on flat areas. I think, if I decide to use them on a project, it will be for one major section of an army (like orc skin on 100 orcs, or something), then everything else would get traditional paint, and I'd still go back and highlight the skin a bit. The shading on them is as advertised, but the auto-highlights are hit or miss depoending on the model's texture.

    Technically, it probably didn't go well. You got two incorrect sets that were so wrong they were right.

    Happy Birthday pinkymadigan

    Thanks all. Like all my birthdays, I kept it quiet. The wife told me I could hobby and she put the kiddo to bed so that's a good day in my book.

    Bones 4 Skeletal Chimera plus vampire rider

    The process differs everytime. I think on this one it was a leather brown base, off white highlight, AP strong tone wash, off white glaze? I try to get a yellow-brown mid in there at some point, and try to work up to a near white usually.
  6. Hey all, been a while. Quick job from Bones 4. Added a saddle, threw on a Mantic Soul Reaver cavalry rider with a head swap from Puppetswar.

    Bones 4 and Baba Yaga's Hut

    Yeah, I suppose I was thinking of backfilling with scrap foam, and just making the cap/connection point out of putty.

    So - removing the legs and magnetizing. I had a thought that this probably wouldn't work when I saw how hollow the legs are, but now I have an idea I'd like some feedback on: Maybe cut the legs, fill with GS/other sculpting medium, push magnet in place, left that whole side dry. After that side cures you attach the magnet, fill the other side with medium and push the hardened side into the uncured side to force the uncured side to conform to the cured, then detach and let dry. That should also make an impression for the second magnet. What do you guys think?

    They showed how they cut off the legs on Reaper Live, basically heat em up (boiling water) and they cut really easy with an exacto. I don't think they are a good candidate for magnetizing though. That was originally my plan but they appear to be very hollow, which means you would have to create the seat for the magnets yourself and get everything flush on both sides, which would be difficult. I have an idea how it might work, though. Maybe cut the legs, fill with GS/other sculpting medium, push magnet in place, left that whole side dry. After that side cures you attach the magnet, fill the other side with medium and push the hardened side into the uncured side to force the uncured side to conform to the cured, then detach and let dry. That should also make an impression for the second magnet. Think I'll post this in the current hut discussion to kick the tires on the idea.

    Did Reaper do a video on detaching the legs yet?

    Huh. Mine didn't make it here yet. Stuck in Nashville since 3:49 am. I kinda expected them to make it in today, and then just sit in Cbus until Tuesday. Oh well, it will get here Tuesday most likely.

    Is the crackle paint a clear coat over a paint job, or crackle, then paint job?

    Today, tomorrow, Monday, or Tuesday.

    It's a cool sculpt, I like it a lot, but it's too big for the war games I use my minis for. That was a lot of the reason my order was so light this time. Most everything was just too big to be useful for my needs.
