  1. I have been out of the hobby for ages. Here are some I painted in an earlier life, when drybrushing was king.

     

    These were used together with the Zombie Werewolf, its pups as it were.

     

    They were drybrushed over a black undercoat as far as I remember, mainly old roundpot Citadel and "Miniature Paints by Gamecraft" (smell exacly the same, I belive these were made by the same manufacturer, what today sells as "Coat D'arms".

     

    Some of these paints I have with price tags dated 1998 and earlier. And they are still perfectly usable (!).

     

    And yes -I am reusing the same text as in other oldies but goldies posts. since it pretty much does say what it needs to ;)

  3. I use a small bucket with luke warm water and some washing up liquid in. And a really cheap toothbrush. Works a charm on all kinds of miniatures*.

     

    *Always an exeption to the rule: Only thing I never managed to get clean was the old Epicast yellow polyurethane Wh40K vehicles. The silicone-like release agent they have used has stood up to the most vigourous scrubbing in both soap and other kinds of more powerful grease-removers. And the spray cans I get in my country do not contain strong enough solvents to get the paint to stick to the resin. So they never got painted, as any and all paints i tried have not adhered to them.

    The OSL on Murkilor the wraith king is from before I knew it was called "OSL". The pictures do not do it justice.

  6. hello, I am quite new here, and I see several references to a requirement of modelling the base of the miniatures if it is to be considered for the inspiration gallery, and also what governs the using of inspiration gallery pictures as pictures on the miniatures in the webshop.

    But I seem to have gone blind trying to find an actual wording in the guidelines.

     

    Can someone please expand on this / explain the requirements / confirm if it is true or not / show where it actually says anything about this in the guidelines?

     

    Thank you.

  7. I tried this for the first time last night, with the unicorn, the gargoyle and the ghost.

     

    I put some freshly boiled water in a cup and dipped just the part of the figure that needed bending in just a few seconds.

     

    the unicorns horn actually straightened itself out after just a second or so. Immediately into a nother cup of cold water and it set nicely,

     

    the gargoyle's wings were parrallell to each other, and needed several goes before I got the right angle on them.

     

    the ghost I wanted to reposition, twisting the stalk so it was to look both more ahead and at a lower angle, thus giving it a rather more sinister look.

     

    Today, I find that the unicorns horn is more or less where I want it to be, it has just gone slightly to the right.since yeterday.

    the gargoyles wings have retracted to a steeper angle, but still much better than when packfresh.

    the ghost has gone back to being just as it came.

     

    So, I will redunk them later, and try to hold them much longer in the hot water and also exaggerate the bend a bit.

  8. Hello ,

    I for one also got interested in reaper again with the kickstarter, having been out of the hobby for almost ten years. It seems there are quite a few of us prodigal oldboys (and girls) here, at that.

     

    I am quite sure that this influx of orders is largely because of the kickstarterers such as myself that only just have discovered reapers absoutely exellent website with all the galleries, forums, inspiration pictures, find-out-the-colour apps and all that are a major part of this. That all the work put into this website is paying off when the masses at last are having a look, as it were.

    And of course the inexpensiveness of the bones helps. I would expect the influx of orders is mainly new (or new-ish) customers.
