    Citadel Contrast paints

    I picked up a few. I've been trying them out on a few types of models. 1. Ones i want done. Seriously, I just want them done. 2. Inexpensive models like Bones IV or some Wizkids. Almost all contrast. I touched up the hat with some white. The metallics are not contrast, nor are the eyes. I also threw a black wash over the 'dunes' wood on the base. Again almost all contrast. I dotted the eyes (blind beggar) and dotted the tooth. I also lightened up the staff and bowl as the wyldwood is way dark. A 3d Printed mini. The primer didn't go on him well to begin with so I just wanted him done. The first layer got sucked up by the bad primer so I threw another one on, which essentially destroyed any 'shading' effect. Wiz Kid 'cleric'. Cap, gloves, cloth, hair, flesh are all contrast. and here is cleric 2, from the other wizkids line. Same deal, almost all non-metallics are contrast. Another pirate I just wanted done. He was initially zenithal highlighted with primer. Makes a HUGE difference if there's too much dark color showing. Also noted that I didn't get his feet with primer (I had a similiar problem wit hthe wooden base on the dwarf earlier in the thread) The cleric I wound up using for now. Hair, flesh, gloves all contrast. I wouldn't use it over wide flat areas. You can go from lighter to darker, but not the other way around. If you need to touch up something, touch up the whole piece. For example on the orc, I should have done all of his boots when I touched him up. You don't need the special primer but they do go over the bones material with no problem. I'm in Chicago and sprayed that beggar and others today and didn't even need to hair dry them. Others, including the 2 wiz kid priests, I didn't do anything with and that blotchy primer on them still took the contrast although I had to throw a little more on in certain spots where the coverage was bad. Another tool and for detailed models, it's going to work fantastic. It's also going to let people who don't want to do 4 coats go down to say 3 or 2. Instead of base, shade, layer, layer, possibly layer, it'll be base, layer and possibly layer. You can mix the contrast paints with one another. You can use water but it affects it differently than the medium, makes it run more. James, whose reknown around here for using the liners, has been doing a ton of great videos on them. I highly recommend them

    Best Cleric Minis?

    Does anyone have any recommendations for clerics? I know Reaper rand Dark sword have some great classic figures but seeing if anyone else has any favorites. Looking for mace as opposed to hammer (the whole priesthood of Sigmar in numerous editions of Warhammer have given me enough characters with hammers)

    It's a small KS in scope and affordable. Looking forward to seeing the figures.

    Your Kickstarter list. How you doing?

    Assimiliation Alien Host by Edward Fortae: The promise of it being delivered is limping along but actual delivery? Black Hallows Townsfolk: Late. If it gets here before July I'd be shocked. Critical Role: Massive quality problems but those appear to be resolved. Stonehaven Dwarves Vol 2: I've backed several. Surprised he flipped to digital sculpting. I hope they start selling the STLs too. The Ancient Evil - Cthulhu mythos miniatures: Resin issues. Communication has been fair so I'm fairly optimistic. He's even offered to split the deleveries with the material already available for an additional s&h costs. Table Titans Fallen Veil Adventure Set: Wow did Toonhound Studios blow this. I suspect it'll still get out to backers but when? Maybe when 6th edition hits or something. "It’s also become pretty clear to us that bi-monthly updates are simply not sustainable. " How pitiful are you as a company when an update like that isn't 'sustainable'.
