Update: Definitely an OOP kit. When I opened it up there were at least three paints that were starting to solidify, but after putting distilled water and using the vortex shaker, I think they should be salvageable. They seem to dissolve a bit better than I expected.

 

  The original old-school Partha Paints are damn near impossible to kill completely, short of leaving them uncapped for a few months... (This is why Buglips is always after Partha paints - it's where he gets his his Evil Supervillain powers from.)

Even then, it's sometimes possible to regrind*  the lump and use it as weathering pigments/gore effects/water froth/etc. as appropriate to the color in question.

 

* (Very carefully, and with the proper safety equipment and ventilation...*)

How high are they dropped from and are they together in a case? I bet most of us could cause brain damage with our collections.

 

 Pfffft... Give me a roll of duct tape, a pack of chewing gum and a broken 1985-vintage Am/FM Walkman, and I can create a device that will launch a single Bones mini with enough velocity to punch a hole through to an alternate dimension.

 

 

 Acquired:  (Sealed...And for less than $30 including shipping)

 "Museum Scale" happens to be around 125mm tall... His face is kinda ugly, but not quite as bad as it looks on the box...

Overall, though, he's a pretty cool figure, and the original starting price was only nine bucks and change with another nine for shipping. By the time the auction ended, though, it had gone from a complete steal to merely a really great price, lol.

This sounds like something to try as an experiment.  Any idea what tools work well for this job?

Acquired a bunch of things today, most of it was for vacation. We also got a 2" binder and 200 page protectors to hopefully start to organize the massive amounts of rule books/character sheets/etc. there is in Shadows of Brimstone. We are still waiting to acquire wave 2. Really hoping that will happen before GenCon.

So, I need to take pictures but just have not gotten around to it yet.

 

I got Hobby Zone storage system, New lights from amazon a Warhammer 40k Parmaris miniature to try it out, Got stickers from Sticker Mule for Iron Bristle Studios, a few KS i was backing funded so now I am eagerly awaiting them and family I got a 0-0 Winsor and Newton brush in. 

 

Not to mention my birthday yesterday in which I got a nice bottle of Santory Hibiki Whiskey, a down payment on a firearm and good time with friends... last one is not a DoA relevant but I thought i would share anyway.

I went to a new-to-me used bookstore here in Indianapolis over lunch and discovered a 1st edition Silver John novel from Manly Wade Wellman, as well as a copy of The Moon Pool by Abraham Merritt.  For $9 my very own "Appendix N" was slightly enlarged.

 

Books Unlimited, on Shelby St., in case anyone is in the area.  I've lived here for 14 years and never new about it.

If you promise you will never, ever use it for food items, a mortar and pestle works fine.

Pingo is Paint-Mom? 

 

I guess someone has to make sure we don't poison ourselves too badly ;)

 

Alternatively, put the gunk in a plastic baggie and gently whack it with a hammer, back if spoon, etc. Or use a rolling pin. I doubt you'll have to be so aggressive as to break the baggie.
