KSII Dragons - THE CHOOSENING

Recommended Posts

I might order a set of those Rosemary Koliskys... I'm thinking that for that price, I can order one 10/0

 

Trust me. the 3/0 is small enough for eyes 4/0 is like an eyelash as is the , 3/0 is perfect.

My first thought, after reading the description, was "Wow, if that thing's resin and weighs 3.5 pounds....and Dragons Don't Share 2 is 4 pounds...JUST HOW MUCH PLASTIC AM I GOING TO BE GETTING?!" :blink:

 

Huzzah!

--OneBoot :D

Interesting. My first thought was "how far would my players run if I plunk HIM on the table..."

DM daydreams...

I hear you on that one I can't wait till I get my World Breaker figure from Bones 2 JUST so he can sit next to my DM screen. Then if anyone says anything stupid or wants to keep talking I'll just get quiet and glance at my miniature :)

A /P/aint /B/rush. Also lead, peanut butter. :D

...your sarcasm, however, cuts like a knife. ::(:

 

...but seriously, (P)aint (B)rush occurred to me right about the time Shadow Raven got his jam on.

Doublepost from phone, cant edit. Sorry!

 

Yeah, I know what a 10/0 looks like, a synthetic one at least. I actually use them for a few things when I do very tiny miniatures - like 1 inch by 1.5 inch. *Miniature canvas, that is. Tree leaves and pond flora, mostly... TBH, I usually use a 5/O, but synth brushes below 0 are hard to find cheap.

 

I havent done focci canvasses in yeats, but I might get started again... Painting minis makes me feel artsy - I haven't done much painting since my... Junior year of HS, really.

In my experience you will never need anything below 2/0. If you buy quality brushes (da vinci, Lukas) and you take care of them (using Kernseife - Curd soap) they will last a long time and you can paint any detail with them. I have only come across inexperienced painters that use smaller brushes than 4/0. Anything smaller than 4/0 wont even hold a tiny drop to make a little dot. The color will almost instantly dry on <4/0 brushes - also depending on your light source and humidity of your room + color thinner. You don't get better using smaller brushes.

Which would be lovely, if I were going to buy brushes solely for painting miniature *figures*. Perhaps a more /experienced/ artist could even pull off using a 4/0 and larger for everything - but I need a brush that can be used to apply drops of yellow ink as highlights on azalias in a painting the size of a thumbprint. Now, like I said, I've used a 5/0 - a lot of them, actually; on a painting that small, I use one brush for every color, and throw them out after every painting (hopefully hair will improve over synth, which starts to bend -even a tiny bit makes one useless at this scale) - and I'm good at it, but I get 10/0s when I see them; at that size, they're ideal for inks and mirroring: tiny details that you need a mag glass to see, let alone paint.

 

Oh, and go dot 500+ lavender blossoms with white on a painting the size of a stamp, then tell me you won't improve. Trust me, little bruhes aren't just a crutch - if you don't have /flawess/ technique, you'll make a mess. I plan on ruining /many, many/ canvasses as penance for being out of practice...

Well, I took for granted that we are talking about 15-28mm (rather 28mm) miniatures since Reaper is a manufacturer of 28+mm and this thread is about large/heroic 28mm miniatures. And for that you will never need more than 0/2 (good quality, with a good tip).

Oh. Nope, canvas miniatures, see? Like tiny tiny paintings. Look at the pad of your thumb - that size. Ill probably fiddle with the minis a lot, brushwise; gotta get used to hair, and gotta get used to shading in 3d. Sorry if I seemed snippy; I get pissy when people talk down people who use tiny tiny brushes, since I spent years learning to work with them, and doing so well isn't easy... I seem to see a lot of it on miniature forums, though. :C I don't see why, even just perfecting the hold on a brush that small so you don't shake is months of practice, and learning to hold paint is even more work - I can usually hold 5 - 10 spots on a single load, for example, not one nearly dry one, or a full highlight on a wave...

      So this is fun, because I can show you folks the Christmas presents I'm working on, so it's like I get to give them twice. Anyway, here's my take on her, really enjoyed going for a winter feel.

      We just launched our campaign for awesome gargantuan dragons, they are 20 cm high, they will look huge compared to 32mm miniatures, the design of every dragon is also unique and different.

      Red dragons, black dragons, green dragons, gold dragons. They are great, but we’ve seen them before.  What makes a dragon unique among all others of its kin? What is its history, what are its motivations, and most importantly, what makes it legendary? Legendary Dragons answers all this and much, much more!
      Jetpack7 aims to bring back the mystery to Dragons and to make an "ordinary" Dragon encounter... extraordinary!
      12 New Unique Legendary Dragons with Stretch Goals of up to 20 Dragons! We’re cooking up content for your 5th Edition game! You’ll not only have brand new Legendary Dragons and their lore to throw at your players, but some new monsters, too!
      New Dragons New Wyverns New Drakes New Hydras Not only will GMs and Players get 12+ Legendary Dragons (with the option for up to 20), we have some other dragon-related goodies that we are planning:
