I don't want to put this in Show Off, since I didn't make it. It was in my Pinterest feed today.
But it's no freakin' cool I and I thought everybody could use a little inspiration to lift them up.
Believe me. You're gonna like this.

Edit: Turns out 1/24 scale.
After 14 months of not touching a brush it feels good to finally be posting some work.
Per usual, I just couldn't help myself with respect to color. I was torn between going muted palate to emphasize the 'underdark' nature of the creature, but then my love of color kicked in....
Please be gentle as I'm a bit rusty.
So, I was walking through the General Store and noticed this little pistol case next to all the Mouslings, Pirates, dragons cases. The picture was "different".
Lo! and Behold! I picked it up and see that it is a BONES Learn to paint kit! I did not open it, but is shows three miniatures on the front.
I will probably buy one today and be able to post the contents a bit better.
Just thought you guys might like to know it's out there.
Hello Reaper Forum-goers!
I began painting minis with the first Bones Kickstarter. You may have noticed that I've never actually posted a WIP or Shown Off anything...that's because I've been working on something else.
Oftentimes I'd find a great tutorial on brushthralls, or YouTube, but invariably the author would use Citadel or VMC or P3 paint colours. Even here on the Reaper forums, Buglips pulls out Coat d'Arms from time-to-time. My colours consisted entirely of Reaper, and I needed a way to determine which colour I could use in the Reaper line to approximate the author's colours. Well, I did some research, and found the Vallejo colour compare spreadsheet PDF like everyone does. The problem is that it's sparse. It only contains exact matches, and not "near matches", and is incredibly difficult to read.
Then I found the CIE2000 colour difference formula: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Color_difference#CIEDE2000 on wikipedia.
After slamming my face with the math for a bit, I broke out my crappy programming skills and started to do SOME SCIENCE!
I wrote a script to compare two colours. Then I extracted the colours of each mini paint company that I could think of, and created RGB colour arrays for each brand. I compared each brand's colours to each other brand's colours to find the best match by first converting to sRGB colour, then XYZ colour, then CIELAB colour and finally determining the colour difference. Sometimes, there was no best match but at least I knew which colour was the closest by selecting the value with the lowest difference.
And finally, I compiled the whole thing into a spreadsheet for you to use. Please ignore the bit about the best match being bold, I haven't got around to that yet.
Also let me know if that link works, it's my first time sharing a Google Doc.
I went to PAX East, and there was a Reaper booth there. They were giving out coupons that if you spent $25 online, you got free shipping and an exclusive figure. I placed an order, used the coupon, got the free shipping, but did not get the figure. I did not see the figure on the confirmation email, so I immediately emailed them and asked about it. I did not receive a reply. Then my package got here, and the figure was not there. I emailed them again; still no reply. I let two business days pass and decided to call them. They told me they would have to call me back. I waited another day, no call back. I called again, got no answer and left a message. It has been two days since with no reply.
I don't want to be a problem customer, but I would like the figure. And honestly, at this point, I understand if they're out or I can't get one, but I would still like an answer or reply. Has anyone had similar issues or does anyone have any sugguestions on what I can next? Thank you for your help.
