  1. I have some background audio from a KS some time back :)



    I've done maps, letters, and the like.


    Last year, I won the Christmas raffle at our FLGS, a 45" Flatscreen.  I put it on the wall in our dining room so the kids have a place to play Wii.  It also doubles as a PC monitor.  It also just happens to be behind and above me as I DM for our group.  Last time we played I searched the web and for pictures of scenery and such that exemplified what the PCs would be doing and where they were, put them into a PowerPoint, and then displayed them on the TV, flipping through them as the Action went forward.  My players LOVED it.  Now I'm, stuck prepping a PowerPoint every game.  :rolleyes:


    I need to untangle my monitor-wires so that I can plug it into my laptop and do just that! Brilliant :)

  2. Thanks everyone :)

    You might as well get the whole triad and save yourself the mixing, too. 





    Oooh, Triad it is :D


    (Or the same colors bought seperate, if I order from miniaturemarket, to get some warmahordes stuff as well :) )


    <Steeples fingers together>

    Can I interest you in the possibilities of self-mixing?

    <Feels unaccountably Mephistophelian>


    *Naively enters the trap*

    How do you do that, again? Do you start with a couple of colors only? Seems like a lot of work!


    I do mix different reapers with this many drops to that many, tho.

  3. I am painting my Skorne army purple and gold. I found great golds with PP metallic paints, so improvement now comes to the cloth.. The recipe currently is:


    Blood Red + Breonne Blue (2:1) for a base coat.

    Citadel Daemonette hide, then adding in white for the highlights.


    I am almost out of Deamonette, and it is annoying to layer with! Any ideas for a reaper equivalent? A dedicated color for the highlight would be nice as well!


    Looking at this:




    I think maybe imperial purple or amethyst purple? :)


    Any ideas for colors to get for fun, to kickstart some painting motivaiton? :)


    Edit: heres a trooper BTW:

  4. Thanks guys! :D


    Very cute, Nice work on the brown leather parts.


    I worked out a recipe for that when I painted my bones ogres :) Basecoat ruddy leather, paint tiny lines of oiled leather on the edges, go over with glazes til satisfied :)

  5. I got a lot done on the little guy yesterday:

    Any advice on painting stone? I have always gone gray-black wash-drybrush. I want to experiment a bit, and perhaps get a little more control.


    Was there something about having more specific threads on this forum? Should I start separate threads instead of using this one? :)

  6. Most of my recent paint time has been spent on these tree ladies. Finished them!




    I have painted so much Skorne now, that I really need to paint something completely different. Which means this little guy. I really like the figure, so cute! Got some base coats and metallics done.

    And I kinda-sorta paint yet another incin as well. And sculpted a base for Molik Karn:




    So that's what I've been up to :-). Perhaps I'll get my Skorne done before Bones2 comes in..

  7. The kickstarter page was really full of stuff! Some of it didn't seem needed, really. Why include jokes and stuff before shipping info?


    If I had more money I might get into this, but the price point is simply too much. Especially when coupled with the "we may need to top up shipping" part. Perhaps I'll get a specific one for an army when they go retail. The detail looks really nice! Still, at that price I can buy a bunch of resin bases or metal base inserts, or bits, or skeletons to glue down, or..


    I dislike that text about how resin is better than silicone. It feels like they need to slam the quality of Happy Seppuku. I have stamped my entire brick stamp in fimo ~10 times, on bases ~30-40 times and a few times in air dry clay. I can't see any wear, really. The only damage any of my stamps has taken was when I managed to get some uncured FIMO into my treasure pile, but I expect that to come off if I let GS cure there a couple of times.


    I don't really like the detail stamps either. but I feel that the problem is the sculpting as much as the material TBH. I didn't like the look of the bones one at first, but now I sort of want it for terrain. Hmm, get that stamp, some resin, and just cast the big bones til the stamp breaks? Could be a fun test as well..


    Edit: was it so that the HS molds didn't like resin? Better check that if I do something like the above :)

  8. Thanks everyone! :D


    Clearer shot of the eye (singular, tho I would not decline a higher rate on fire with his eye-laser ;) ).





    I love the gold on this guy! Excellent! The red and blue look good together, too...

    nicely done.



    The golds are P3 Solid Gold and Rhulic Gold, lined with Brown Liner. I dig them! I suspect that my GW gold may end up forgotten on the shelf! 


    I agree with Anne. A clearer shot of the eyes would be appreciated. ^_^


    I like the color choices on the clothes, I might have to steal that for a wizard.


    Nice choice of palette on this guy.  I would like to see a pic that gives a better look at his eyes though.


    I was thinking about changing the belt to purple, but dropped it to get him done in time for sunday gaming night. Perhaps a little time constraint may be good :)

  9. The humble beginnings of a warma-hordes desert table! Got some help from a fellow warma-hords'er to build it, and I'm flocking it with acrylic paste and sand. Also instant molded GS bits, actual bits, hirst arts bits and sheets of HS stamped in FIMO :)




    (Sorry about the picture size)


    Also, my crappy Goblins!




    I keep a pair of these buggers on my painting desk. When I have leftovers on my pallet, or just feel like trying out a color combo on to them it goes! After a while they get some painting time, a bath of quickshade and get in line for geocaching-swag-duty.
