IMO Reaper has always had a communication/PR problem due to the way that they choose to structure the dissemination of information. ie. We can't post an update because it's not update day. We can't gi

The owlbear freebie was the first Bones Black figure released. 

 

 

It might sound cooling, but it is super confusing when they make everything gray. If the regular Bones were staying white, then the gray looks darker, and can be dubbed Black Enough. Now... 

 

They lack contrast. Yep. Went there. No contrast. They need to get their naming and their coloring schemes to have contrast! 

 

Reaper explained it on ReaperLive. The reason the normal Bones and new BB figures are pretty much the same color in the Kickstarter is because they haddn't decided on what shade the new line would be when production started. They decided on the official Bones Black color late in the process, after some trial runs. Bones will be light grey, and Bones Black will be much darker grey. They will look distinct once they have sold all the extra Kickstarter BB stock and get replacement runs for the new line. It'll take a while, but it'll be sorted eventually.

Ah yes. Videos so long that I wait for all of you to regurgitate the good parts for me.

 

So to interpret for the analogy: they used the same base coat on both types and will get to shading them later ::P:

Personally, I think they look better in Dobly! And just need to make sure we keep the dwarfs away from the baba yaga err stonehenge scenery:)

Honestly, have you NOT seen my tagline:)

Does Stynylrez adhere better than liner?  Or is liner still the best option for priming?

Not sure about liner, but compared to black primer reaper bottle, it is easier (not sure about better adhesion, but the stynylrez sure seems to adhere pretty good)

Unclear. That would take the kind of testing that @Wren did with the Brown Liner, and I don't know of anyone who has done that. Works well for me, though, and it's cheaper in the kind of volume you need for a Bones Kickstarter project.

Because Bones Dark White would have been MORE confusing. :;,;:

 

I would definitely buy Bones* Dark Whyte.

 

* I'm offended that I can't use an alt code to get o-macron. Offended, I say! :grr:

The ghost pirates looked really good in a video I saw. But taking pictures of them it always looks like a green mess. I'm sure all these models will be fine with paint or at least a wash.

 

On another note: why are ghosts green in the Bones line? Why not grey, white, clear, or idk, blue? Are green ghosts an American thing?

 

I have no proof of this, it's just my assumption, but: in a lot of classic folklore things like will-o-wisps were pale green. And I'd assume that's the case because a fair amount of natural phosphorescence is green. And glow in the dark is just creepy. 

 

Also, Steven King made his ghost lights green, and his stuff was a huge impact on horror culture.

      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
