  1. To quote Black Sabbath "The Devil is never a maker, the less that you give, you're a taker". Yes, you need to be aware that there are a lot of people that will drain your soul via abusing your generosity. It usually starts with you giving an inch. Ask yourself: Are these people that pay it forward? Do they ever do favours (small or significant) to you? This should inform your decision if you yourself don't particularily want to do whatever favour it is they ask of you (assuming you do not owe them, of course). I would also make sure to inform them of what they actually are requesting. I know of several individuals that breeze though life, asking others to do stuff they have no concept of the real cost of, and when informed of this absolutely would not consider that cost reasonable.
  2. Now I know who this reminds me of...it must be Galactus, Devourer of Worlds.
  3. Pork is similar to human flesh, also known as "long pig". I have had pork chops spoil and literaly turn green. Hence, I believe green is to be expected at some point of decomposition. But spoiled meat if left alone will continue to change colour as it decomposes, so any colour from pallid to pitch black should be OK for a zombie. Also, the green could be mould growth.
  4. https://www.reapermini.com/previews look under February, "Dark Heaven Legends" almost at the bottom. What we do know, is that the vast majority of Bones 5 will probably not be released as is to retail, but might be redone in Bones USA before release. It looks like Reaper is trying to reduce their dependency on China (and the enormous hassle and cost of getting anything shipped from China) by rethinking all their releases, and rather then need to reorder from China they will make them in house. However...these releases look like they are in metal, not in the new "legends" line that is Bones USA. So why are these already released models slated as new releases? (and moved to where they are neither searchable nor orderable on the website?)
  5. Every kickstarter has shown improvements in the "bones classic" formula, from the Bones 3 KS and out I think they found a formula that consistently works well, and that is what, six years ago now? They have also tinted the plastic to a light grey in recent years. If the bones model is grey instead of white you should be safe that it is a newer formula. The bones black variant was introduced for many minis in bones 4, and has the potential for detail similar to metal models. The bones USA is a different sort of plastic, with potential for detail similar to resin models. They make the Bones USA minis themselvs in the USA while all the other bones are cast in China. The 2022 release schedule includes many older bones and metal minis being remade in the Bones USA material, thus reducing Reapers dependency on China.
  6. Nice! If I could make a suggestion: The goblin is holding the torch above its head, but the top of the head is very dark. If you paint the top of the head in the lightest green, it would look more like the torch is giving off light. From there, you can add just a little yellow to make a sort of OSL (object source lighting) effect, the yellow of the torch's fire reflecting or giving colour to the surroundings. Just the top of the head and maybe the top curve of the edge of the sword that is facing the torch,
  7. someone needs to make The Dancing Hat of Baby Yoda
  8. Also, Copper is quite poisonous if ingested in more than trace amounts, so don't eat glitter that isn't food grade. (Cheap glitter often has copper in it.)
  9. I use the backing sheets from shipping labels on my wet palette.
  10. printyourmonsters is now preparing their new (second, they were in the first wave with their "plants and rocks"-tribe) tribe, and sending out messages to their existing patrons actively promoting moving over to tribes when it goes up, enticing with cheaper monthly rates, early birds deals etc. In their series of messages (slighly jumping the gun I would say, since the new tribes is not active yet) it certainly seems that they as creators want to get rid of extra hassle with the patreon delivery and keep it all at MMF where stuff according to them is more streamlined and easier for them to deal with as creators. They used the words "when you can leave patreon and go on Tribe :)".
  11. Here is a tip: "dress" the model from the innermost colour to the outermost colour, in that order. This lets you paint smaller and smaller areas, and you won't have to reach past already painted bits to paint other bits, thereby reducing the chance of messing up by hitting the wrong areas and then having to go back and fix them. combine this with a dark / black undercoat. Stay neat and with practice you can up your speed significantly.
  12. You can usually see if the miniature is a made in a lead alloy: Lead is duller and darker in tone than tin. Also it will be more bendy since lead is much more soft. If you drag the mini along a piece of paper, tin / pewter / white metal will not leave any coloured mark, while lead alloys will often leave a grey mark. if you handle bare lead minis, you will often get a grey residue on your fingers. *I am not a metallurgist, but* I experience this when prepping lead metal minis.
