  1. So I just dropped nearly 100$ at my FLGS on reaper master series paints, only to discover upon closer inspection that they are actually pigments. I'm a beginner/moderate painter, so I didn't quite realize there was a difference. After conversing with one of my more hardcore painter friends, i'm even less sure than I was before. He tells me that the pigments are different from the paints and that pigments are usually only used to tint paints, but then i went to the website and saw that everything there comes in the same kind of bottles with all the same names. It seems strange to me that reaper
  2. So hear is a loaded cannon for every one; How do you paint fabric to make it look realistic. I personally tend to build up many layers of highlights and shadows and that how I do fabric, I may free hand a designee on but that really about it. I've notice wile going threw some of last years winners for reaper con that some of the fabric was painted in a almost stippled effect and it look more like a hand stitched/hand made dress or tabard. I have been trying to replicate this with no avail what so ever and going back threw old work I seem to have gotten something close back when I was learning

  4. Over in the Show Off section, I made an offhand remark about winning my war with metallic paint. A couple of replies came in asking how I did it. I decided, instead of letting it get buried in Show Off, I would put my answer in Painting Tips & Advice. So a little background, in 2007 I took a true metals class with Jeramie Bonamont-Teboul. After that class I discovered more articles on CMoN about the technique. At first I was toddling along perfectly happy living with the RMS metallic paints, but my skills were improving and I was discovering that the RMS metallics had some problems. N

  6. I know there's a painting forum, but it seems to be dedicated to the Reaper Minis, not to the hand-sculpted ones. I see most people use acrylic paint. I've also seen some people they use primer or paint directly on, but they usually don't specify which material they used. I was wondering if you use primer, and specifically, on which materials? Are the various brands of putty different? Clay? What if you have used more than one material on one sculpture? For example, I made this, which is ProCreate/Apoxie with the top layer in Super Sculpey. Oh yeah, and I've also made a base out of Milliput.
  7. [MOD]Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites. We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.[/MOD] FAQ Reaper only? - No. If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes. Are sp

  9. A cursory search found nothing...but: has anyone tried painting a mini with green hair? Like a more subtle "natural" tone rather than blazing neon or something? The reason is 'currently' a surprise but if anyone has tips/tricks that'd be great!
  10. Hi Everyone! I'm wondering if one can achieve a reasonable blonde from the Chestnut Gold through Buckskin Pale triad. This is the most yellow/brown paint I have and from what I was able to discern from Google...blonde needs an undertone of brown...so yeah...will this work?
  11. Once a year my husband and I run a Paint and Take table at a local convention, Recruits. It's held at the high school, admission is free for all area students, games are child friendly, etc. We get a great turnout. The paint table is free for kids of all ages, even grownup kids, and it is funded entirely with donations. All of the figures, all of the paint, water cups, brushes, etc come from the wonderful community we have here, from the internet, and from vendors. It's typical for me to arrive early Saturday to set up and find one or more anonymous boxes of figures or paint waiting. A c
  12. Tossing this out there, unsure of the appropriate forum board to use. It's probably unimportant, but I'm wondering how to describe myself as a miniature painter. I started this hobby one year ago and since then my profile has described me as a painting newbie. I no longer think of myself as such having painted probably 25-30 figures since then, watched hours of YouTube tutorials, purchased and watched Jen Haley's DVD, posed questions on the forums and had them answered, learned how to prep, prime, base, drybrush, wash, and highlight. So, what level painter am I? I thought about graduat
  13. Hey all, Taylor is the name, minis are the game. Well, they're FOR the games. Um. I mean. Uh. I learned to paint minis when I was about 15-16 (I'm 27 now) and while I didn't paint for ALL of those years, I do have some that I'm proud of. *insert gratuitous spam of bragging* I guess this is me introducing myself. Yo, I'm Taylor, I'm 27, and I don't believe there is such a thing as too many minis, too small a brush, or too much time spent painting! xo Taylor
  14. Since real life seems to have caught up to our Resident Sith Moderator, (Was that you Jedi Hamster??? ), I thought that I would put up a temporary post so folks could put there stuff up, and a mod could move it all around later. I have no Idea what bonus and challenges his devious mind had planned, so lets just go with 4 minis this month, until otherwise informed.... George
  15. Well, I asked if we were going to do this, and Inarah suggested I start the thread, soooooo... Personally, I have to work Saturday, and will have a house full of Pathfinder peeps over for the weekend, but I will still have my Golden Hours of 12 am to dawn to paint.... I am sure that the Hangouts will be open, and this will give folks a jump on the July RPChallenge, (Remember your Punk Rock Pink Paint!) So you have 2 weeks to start thinking about it! George

  18. Here's a quick video of me painting a Reaper shoggoth. I wanted to test Citadel Black Primer on Bones as well as work on my video production, so I chose a very simple miniature to paint. Having also painted the Bones Cthulhu, I'm really looking forward to the Mr. Bones 3 Mythos rewards. https://youtu.be/P9sfdLqm5q0

  21. Hey all - just posting here to start a conversation with my fellow fans of Big Stompy Robots - I got down last night and painted up some Malvernis CAVs. Because I have literally hundreds of models at this point, I'm speed painting, and setting aside a few models to serve as "heroes" or commanders, with which I will take more time and care. Even these, drybrushed as they are, need a little more blacklining and clean-up, but I'll probably do that Sunday. For now: the first of my Khardulis fanatics!
  22. Hello everybody! Some time ago I asked on a suggestion for placing a thread about alternatives to many materials that you modellers in the "first world" use and take for granted, but are more difficult to find when you are away (and shipping ends up being more expensive than the material itself). It was suggested this subforum, so here it is where I am posting. But I intend to make it even more than a simple "materials alternative" thread. As I thought about placing it in the WIP subforum, I realised... all these tips and stuff are very intimately related to one particular Work In

  25. Once upon a time at PAX, when Bones were still new I asked about having miniatures come in separate pieces as that would make them easier to paint, but the answer I got was they wanted the consumer to be able to take it straight out of the package and onto the playmat. Which, fair enough, that made sense, and it's not like it was that hard to get around. I've been sitting on a pile of KS miniatures from the first two Kickstarters (as well as impulse buying a few other Bones along the way), but having taken a look at them it seemed like they weren't gonna be an issue to paint years later when I
