I wonder if there'll be a different shipping rate for Canada. It's really annoying how we always get lumped into the "outside US" shipping group, even though it's less than shipping overseas.

 

welcome to the club ^_^

Itar's Workshop swears by PaintWorks
Taken from their latest update:

 

We have partnered with Game Decor to provide the paint for our painted sets.
I was going to use other paint but after evaluating this paint it was no contest. It's easy to use and very durable. I tested it by rubbing it with a brush for over 30 minutes (unsealed) and it didn't even make a mark. The only other paint I tested that did that well was house paint but that was much thicker than the Game Decor stuff. We aren't using the colors exactly as the kits recommend but it works out. Basically I'm using the base coat as the first coat and using the native color of the piece as the base. I will be doing a tutorial on painting the dungeon pieces when I have time.
Check them out here.
Here's a shot of a test piece that I did with the paint and put through the torture tests. As you can see there's no marks from being rubbed by a toothbrush. I didn't do the floor as a separate color since this was just a test piece and that would have taken longer (I have one or two other things on my plate right now).

Bah, you should have told me you needed samples to paint! I could have sent you 5 casts of each mold to get you started!

 

ETA: or you could send me some paint and I'll paint the pieces I have and post pictures for you!

LOL thanks for the offer, but I wanted the molds too and now I had an excuse ^_^

 

They came in the mail last night, I'll be casting them today, and new pictures of Aged Wood painted examples will follow tomorrow.

Wow, these paints look like they go on very smoothly.

 

They do indeed! I know I'm the creator and proud of my product, but the paints really are quite exceptional. I have a tutorial video being edited right now that shows how easy it really is and that anyone can get the same results with little to no experience as a painter.

      I know there are a few folks that do Bolt Action and similar 28mm wargaming (@buglips), so I thought I'd bounce this out there.

      Story
      Railroads are an important means to transport troops, equipment, ammunition and all other kinds of supply to the front. Especially in a country as vast as the Soviet Union with it's endless steppes, only few reliable roads and no major rivers running in the direction of the German advance during Operation Barbarossa in World War II. 
      With this set of detailed buildings and rolling stock in 1/56 scale for 28mm figures you get the opportunity to recreate the crucial fighting around the Soviet railroad system.
      The kits focus on the major pieces of rolling stock available to the Soviet defenders: box cars, gondola cars and flat cars. And the mighty ALCo RSD-1 Diesel Engine which was made available under the US Lend-Lease Act.
      Also included is a typical rural train station with optional additional platforms for all who want to depict a Soviet - or captured German - supply depot, where heavy equipment like tanks and guns are being unloaded.
      And for all of you looking for an armored train - don't worry! We have you covered.
        Talking about railroad tracks:
      We did not see the need to reinvent the wheel, so all kits are designed to be used with
      4Ground Railroad Tracks (available as add-ons to the Kickstarter) or O Gauge Model Railroad Tracks The kits include optional parts enabling you to choose your favorite system while assembling. Going this route has allowed us to concentrate on designing and producing the rolling stock only, which has the advantage of an earlier fulfillment date for the Kickstarter.
      All models are highly detailed on the outside and inside. The interiors are easily accessible, as roofs are removable. In addition, all doors are moveable, which means you can open or close them during gameplay.

      A Viking Girl sculpted by Bobby Jackson. She was a lot of fun to paint since she had a lot of canvas for freehand work. She is also my first serious effort at NMM, so that's a well I plan to return to.
       
      I came to paint her when I asked my friends which model needed to get some love next. I presented a wizard, a ranger, and an armored lady fighter. One chimes in that she'd like to see the fighter (she being a practitioner of HEMA). Her boyfriend mentions something about boob armor. I said, no, she's got pretty normal armor. You want to see something egregious? THIS is egregious. My HEMA friend immediately says, "I'd like to change my vote." So here we are.
       
      Here's the WIP thread for her. Here's my next piece.

      This has sod all to do with miniatures, but I would be surprised if there were not people who might want one of these pins, for literally any reason at all.
      I'll let the campaign speak for itself, as I usually do; it is pins. There are, as the title implies, representations for most of the common faiths, in a literal rainbow of ... well, Pride rainbows.

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p
