Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second


Recommended Posts

I got some goodies from Reaper UK. All these goblins are going to be part of a not so secret project that will commence once I finally receive my Bones V order. Which reminds me, I need to start making some banners :ph34r:

Despite not really needing more minis at the moment (Seriously, it hasn't even been a fortnight since I got my Bones V stuff), I've had a small splurge.

 

Ordered a pair of Wizkids Female Gnome Bards, never had any interest in the range before, but I've been seeing these two in the 'upcoming releases' list for a while, and I've become somewhat infatuated.

Took a step on the slippery slope that is buying 3D printed minis, by ordering a Vampire Hunter.

And finally, ordered Malifauxs Jedza Box (I thought I'd accepted that buying Malifaux minis was a waste of time and money, because I don't like painting them, but apparently not).

 

Note the smaller races in that brand are scaled to be small compared to the medium figures. Since Wizkids uses a truer 28mm scale, they might appear tiny.

 

I've got the same bards coming. I really like the Pathfinder female halfling with just the shield. Reaper halflings look big compared to her. ^_^

 

I ended up using her as a npc helper cleric for my Saturday group that lacked a true healer & was small in people size. She was a pacifist.

Yeah, I'm already having a bit of buyers remorse on those two, they look so cool but I'd be surprised if the physical minis have even half that much detail, gotta try and keep my expectations low.

I got some Avanpost Miniatures. The detail is incredible on the figures. Of course I broke a scabbard in half straight after finishing the figures, but I glued it on again thought its going to be fragile now.

That Gnome Bard was the first PC set in a while that really caught my eye.  Nice design.  Feels like the Gnome redesign for WHFRP 4E from Cubicle 7.

Order from Delpi Decal is in, whoo!  They're just waterslides and I didn't bother to take a pic of the lot, so I'll just include a few of the highlights...  14 different packs (15 if you include the freebie they included), with three of them being a lot... Shinier.

^Master Grade Sazabi Silver Holographic.  Not sure I'll actually use these since they're a touch brighter than I was expecting, but I'll keep them in mind anyways.  Probably would go well with some iridescent paint anyways!  I might wind up using them in combination with standard ones as well as the silver metal ones.

^Real Grade Banshee Gold Holo.  I like the shimmering effect these ones have.

^Real Grade Unicorn Perfectibility (Gundam Base Limited Edition) Holo.  Love how the blue shimmers on this, and is rather lovely compared to the standard barebones red in the kit.

 

The part that was kind of funny to me though?  As a "first order freebie", they included a decal sheet...  For the RG Unicorn's regular release.  Guess I'll have plenty of decals to choose from, since Nii G Shop also gave me a set of DL waterslides for the RG Unicorn Full Armor as a promotion they're doing right now (one free pack of waterslides with each order)!

As a final gift to their remaining backers, Mojibake gave out a 70% off coupon for their MMF store.  Since that kind of a discount doesn't come around every day I decided to take advantage and stock up on more Asian props. Added to what I already have I feel I'm in pretty good shape for that stuff now.

 

Soon though I will need a new HDD.

I got some paint for the ship. Going to hope this works. I don't want to buy like 10 bottles of Reaper paint to get a base coat on it. Also grabbed some big, cheap, brushes.

I'm painting my ship in folk art paint from hobby lobby and it's going fine, you should be good!

I was gonna break out the ol' Master's Touch or whatever it is for mine (or buy new; I need to check and see if my old tubes are still liquid lol), but I've been trying to decide which color would be best for the base coat. Raw umber? Burnt umber? Burnt sienna perhaps?

 

Also, is it possible to prime that thing (without an airbrush)?

I used black paint and just covered everything in it for a priming coat and then began applying the basecoat of the other costs over it

 

The problem with most primer and bones is that it often leaves the mini permanently tacky

Nice transfers. I think they might be good for @Great Khan Artist to use for her Thousand Sons.
