Just finished a short article for DaggerAndBrush showing you a selection of tools that will come in very handy for pretty much any terrain project. I keep it simple and recommend a number of tools for cutting and measuring; painting, sculpting and engraving; and tools that are nice to have, but not essential. So if you just started making terrain or intend to make some this may come in handy. The right tool for the job
I did it! Some folks asked me to tell them how to use soft pastels for miniatures and I did one better and made my very first video tutorial! Let me know what you think!! ( I also posted this on the Reaper Facebook Group so some of you may have seen it already.)
I pledged in the first Bones Kickstarter. And now I've pledged in the second Bones Kickstarter. So I have a ton of unpainted minis, and more on the way. I never really wanted to learn to paint. I spend waaay too much time on the RPG hobby as it is. But I've reluctantly come to the conclusion that if I depend on the kindness of my friends, it will be decades before this vast backlog of minis gets painted. It's time to face reality: if I don't learn to paint, I'll be explaining that 90% of my monsters are albino, and that's why they're solid white. Including their, err, albino clothing and armor. And weapons. Yeah. So I'm trying to figure out what supplies I should get, and thought I'd ask what you all would consider essential basic kit. What colors of paint do you always keep in stock? What sizes/brands of paint brush do you prefer? What other tools will I really need? X-acto knife, sandpaper, etc? I'm aware of Reaper's learn to paint kits, but I suspect that with literally hundreds of minis to paint, I'm going to need more paint in a wider variety of colors than those offer. It'd be nice if I could get the instructional booklet separately from the rest of it and just buy a bunch of paint.
