<conspiracy mode> The cost of producing 6000+ metal sophies is becoming so dangerously high that they'd rather we trade it out for some much cheaper plastic instead.</conspiracy>

 

Well, I'll be glad to help with that. Hmmm...another 25 NOVAs? I could run them as allied imperial guard for my blood angels...er, I mean Warlord something something RAGE something...

(or maybe they just didn't make enough Sophies :).

 

Not an issue. Knowing how fast Reaper can cast and package metal, they could have that done by the time the KS closed, if they really needed to.

 

As for the Sophie trade-ins, I'm perfectly happy that they've given the option. As a LE model, it will just thin the pool of available models afterwards... :devil:

 

As someone else suggested, I'll just buy the extra plastic stuff I want later.

Stop confusing my tiny goblin brain with these oppositional thoughts!

The succulich!

 

The dracobus!

Get some sleep Bryan, looks like we are going to pass the goal sometime in the middle of the night. And since there isn't some Rube Goldberg monkey driven process, it looks like you will get an interrupted sleep again tonight. :zombie:

Just get them both, Bug. Sophie is the only metal and a LE to boot. If funds are an issue I'd suggest swapping out other options so you still can get Nethyrmaul. For instance, maybe you don't really NEED the fire giants and Rauthuros right now. If we estimate everything is 50% of retail, it will be a wash in the long run, but then you can spread the cost out even more by getting to buy a few smaller items instead of one large one.

Yeah, but that's all, like, logical, and sensible, and stuff.

 

Where's the fun in that?

 

Going completely insane, now that's a good time!

I just upped for the final time. I now have enough for Vampire, plus ALL the goal options, plus the orc army, one set of paints, and a little to spare. It hurt to type that. BTW, still no pedicure or hair cut. (I did break down and get the tattoo I'd planned...) I'm really roughing it, here, people.

Then here's what you do. Call the cyber monkey on the clockwork dragon. Right? Have them attach a tether to the dracolich during the packing process so he comes along for the ride. Simple! Why didn't you think of that?

You think you're roughing it? Missy, let me tell you . . . I had to dig so deep for this kickstarter that I can't even afford stank for my stanky shoes.

 

Look at them! Smell that? That's right, you don't! Cause there ain't nothin to smell!

 

They're just . . . *sob* . . . just stupid, ordinary shoes now!

You know what I think? I think this guy, this guy right here, earned himself a promotion! Congratulations, Seadragon. Here's your new uniform. When you're done here, report to cave level 5 and take command of the Hobgoblins. You'll need to be rough on them to earn their respect, but when you do you can take them out raiding those ripe, delicious human settlements and help yourself to all the treasure and maidens you can lug back.

Never pay for a haircut again!

Um...*gently shoves the delightfully scent free toes away* this could be the start of something good for you. Maybe try it for awhile. My own toes are growing gnarly and untended, yours are getting pleasanter, we're all out of our comfort zones, here.

The Suck Cut! The answer to all my prayers. I've always wanted a helmet head.

Flowbee, huh? Know what I found the other day, on a semi-tangentially-related note?

 

I found my old Miami Device. Anybody remember those? I wanted to look like Don Johnson.

 

I couldn't even shave when I bought that. I was like eleven.

 

Still thought it made me cool, though.

Well, I ain't warshin 'em! No sirree. None of that gross old soap for my goblin tootsies.

 

I likes 'em just the way they is.

 

Hey, look! I found a beetle a'twix them.

Thank you sir! Do you want the stanky shoes that came with my new uniform? I'll have those hobgoblins whipped into shape in no time! Just not saying what that shape will be. Maybe a dodecahedron?

      Hello Reaper friends!  You might remember I did a whole tribe of Hill Giants on a display board, with hex bases?
       
      This is my follow up to that, this time: Stone Giants.
       
      Errrm, it all got a bit out of hand, and I'd LOVE some input from you all, please
       
      This is where I'm at after a week and I'm a bit stuck tbh.




       
      I think I need to decide more about what the "finish" will look like before I go a lot further. Once I cover that foam with more than paint it's going to be harder to make changes. I'm thinking of sort of "cladding" it in pieces of slate, with sculpted  bits / groundwork in the gaps?
       
      I'd also love to hear suggestions for other miniatures and features to add to the scene to break up those big open rocky spaces. Current extra bits and bobs are just there for a sense of scale and how extra minis might "interrupt" or "enhance" the scene.
       
      Some next steps though:
      - cork around the hexes on the platforms for the bases to fit into
      - some sort of "door frame"
      - "box in" the sides (which are cut out of a continuing mountainside, in my head at least)
       
      Please, rain your ideas and encouragements upon me!

      Help! I'm hating this paintjob.
       
      I grabbed this demilich thinking it'd be a fun and easy paintjob. But everything I do makes me hate it more.
       


       
      I was trying to go for a green flame look, so yellow on the inside, and gradually darker green highlights on the outside. These were drybrushed and then cleaned up by hand. I think this is where the problem started because it's not reading as fire. It just looks like a blobby mess?
       
      Should I just scrap it and start over with more of an ethereal glow that's darker in the middle and lighter on the edges?
       
      I also am not happy with the base. I've never painted a 2D base before, I've always added some kind of texturing material. And although I'm reasonably satisfied with how the base looks on the summoning circle behind the demilich, it looks so bad on the demilich base. And I think my green glow isn't helping. 
       
      And finally the Bones. I imagined that if there was a green light behind the Bones then they'd be tinted green and darker on the outside. Again .. this just doesn't look right.
       
      I'm normally fairly confident in my painting abilities, but I think I've landed in unfamiliar territory and I'm just not sure how to salvage or proceed. What can I do?

      NOTE: You can choose one demo monster ( skull or abberattion) I chose a batwinged skull and added horns to try it.
    • By Otyugh
      This is my filthy first.
       
      I finally gave in and purchased one of the Bones figures. It is the otyugh-ish filth beast by Bob Ridolfi.
       

      It is a big change from the metal minis I usually purchase. The material is way bendy, almost like a green Gumby toy.


      The coolest thing is the way it is baka yoke, and all the pieces are "keyed" to a hole. I would have to try really hard to mess up the assembly on this one!

    • By MoonglowMinis
      First time showing something off on the forums! Normally only post to my instagram @MoonglowMinis
       
      Had a blast painting this one up! Had to tap into my painterly side to get the glow effect I wanted and to transition the plating down to the end of the tail where there was no sculpted detail. 
       
      Hope you all like it!
