Full paint review coming in the upcoming days/weeks...

 

I am pretty sure @Cyradis has some experience with this set. Pretty excited to try it out.

I have absolutely no need for such, but for some reason when I see that box I want to order a set.....  I'm also interesting in trying them out as I kiiind of want to learn colour theory, and better colour mixing...

Yep, although I still need to keep experimenting with them. They're a really good addition to a collection. Steep learning curve though; they just behave differently. The satin medium kinda makes it feel like cheating, but straight stuff they are very opaque and don't blend. Add that and they become happy mush. Or you can add tiny bits to other colors to add oomph. Or thin the snot out of them with medium and make friggin' amazing glazes. The Red is like Reaper's Blood Red, except that it is more vibrant. They look the same on the palette but behave so differently.

 

You should have fun with them :)

In following up with the expansion of my X-Wing minis, I acquired a Hound's Tooth and 2 Quadjumpers today. I still need to get the 2.0 conversion kits so that I can be up to date, but I'm buying the 1.0 kits because I can and because I can find them on discount.

 

I got both Quadjumpers for $10 total, when they have a retail price of $15 a piece. I have no doubt that this is because they used to be part of a powerhouse list in the old days, but have been reined in with 2.0, so there's probably a lot of extra stock floating around of these guys in particular. But even for lesser discounts when the 1.0 version of a ship was $15 retail, and the 2.0 version of the same ship is $20, if I can get the 1.0 version for $10 and then have it covered by the 2.0 conversion kit later I'm still coming out ahead.

 

Next week my order of the 1.0 Millennium Falcon should come in.

Haven’t been into my FLTS in a while so I figured I’d stop by tonight on my way home from work since they’re open late. Plan was not to buy, just to look.

 

 

They obviously had just put out a shipment of Wizkids unpainted, including The Kraken at $10 less than my FLGS had it for. Plan abandoned.

I had to. It includes a rowboat.

Finally remembered to take pics of my second box from Forged in Battle's W&E 3...

The other four units from my Arthurian forces.  So many little (15mm) figs......

And the Arthurian Warlord's Stronghold (with a knight for scale). Great looking piece.  I'm always happy with their resin pieces.

 

Is that a rule set, or what rules are you using? I was working a little this week on forces for my Arthurian project using Osprey’s Dux Bellorum rules...

He fits the paint water cup rather well. 

 

I snapped up two, because they’re small. (Really they’re not.)

Big river order arrived.

AM_2019_09_09.jpg.68e77a8afd76d0c0a13e2ddd7d05c40a.jpg

Two spools are the usual  grey.  The other two are a fairly dark brown, called "Brown" and a light tan called "Flesh". My wife wanted a brown cat printed this time (she gets a cat printed every time I get a new colour). I guess she gets 2 new ones over the next while.....

Also got some Vallejo Rough Grey Pumice Ground Texture Acrylic paste to try out for basing.
Sorry about the minor spoiler for Bottas's pit stop from Monza today.....:poke:

Vacation loot so far:

 

Funagain Games (Euguene, OR)

 

Nolzurs & Deep Cuts miniatures

Female half elf ranger

Male water genasi druid 

Male human wizard (the old guy)

Chests

Chessex Borealis Maple with yellow lettering: These wouldnt have as much meaning if purchased elsewhere but Eugene, OR. Being they are the Ducks primary colors I had to find this set here. Glittery, but the green & yellow shows.

 

Oregon Ducks Store on campus:

I needed a new Ducks hat + love the new wings logo!

Couple decals. Small one was gonna go on my phone case but it's not the logo but the entire clear piece you see after peeling.

 

Bag tag with the new wings logo

 

Fred Myers:

Squirrel mug my wife got me at a Fred Myers stop. I'll use it as a brush holder

 

Oregon Art Supply:

Brushes!. I picked one of the blue handle Windsor Newtons, up last time I was here & it's a fantastic brush! The red handle felt good on my hand.

 

Ducks Store on Sunday:

Decals I got when we went back to the Duck Store on Sunday. These were in the store above the Duck apparel shop. Campus supplies & other student stuff. Llama one I'll give to my daughter. The other 2 are mine!

-I got my Dark Sword stuff from my 2nd place prize.

-I picked up one of Ian's Righteous Steel Minis, and I'm blown away by the quality of both the sculpt and the resin its made of.

-Something a bit fun from an upcoming tabletop game. (Fus ro dah!)

Good news: Got my Studio 6D6 Kickstarter Rainbow dice today, they look great. Bad news: the translucent version that they were selling with a special offer to ship with the kickstarter didn't show up with them. Good news: you can call Andy directly to get it fixed, and he's a super nice guy. Will take a picture of both once the second set arrives.

Suppose this means I should figure out how I'm painting things, or what I'm painting them as...

Thanks to a certain purple kitty, I haz ribbons and a ReaperCon Swag Bag!

It was a surprise, though I did get a heads up so I wouldn’t order one online.

Since I’ve never been to Reapercon,  it was very cool of OneBoot to drop in several ribbons too. I now have to figure out which forumite was handing each one out.

Thanks OneBoot! ^_^
