In the Reaper Live videos, it's been mentioned that most rattle primers are ok to use. But no one that I've seen has mentioned their results of spray priming their bones black, so I thought that I would post my results here. I hope that others will post theirs as well.
Cleaning and prepping mold lines on bones black is very different than regular bones. I would compare it to other gaming companies hard plastic while still having a little bit more flexibility.
So far I've used the following primers, I'll add to this list as I use new ones:
Krylon Colormaster White primer- quick drying time with light spraying, no stickiness, no granular texture associated with light dusting. The white stayed relatively white unlike on other plastic models.
Rustoleum 2X Paint+Primer Satin Poppy Red- Smooth coverage, no texturing. However, after 24hrs is still slightly tacky to the touch. In places where I've scrapped mold lines away the plastic underneath is not tacky. I'll give it a few more days to cure and then I'll try stripping it and see how that goes. The tackiness maybe due to the satin primer rather than the more commonly used flat primer. ETU: 60 hrs and no change in the tackiness so I used isopropyl to strip it with no issues.
I am current sitting with both Cinder and Blightfang Bones "minis", and before I paint it how did everyone else go about priming them?
I want to do this large mini justice and prep it in the best way possible. This is the Reaper Bones plastic mini, so I don't want to use an Rattle-Can due to the curing issues.
Keep in mind that I do not have access an airbrush.
Also after I am done washing the mini in soap and water how else should I go preparing the mini?

I saw this posted on another forum and thought folks here might find this useful. This free generator creates a simple map of a city, in either small, medium, or large size. It also labels each sector as to what type of buildings are there (when you scroll your mouse over each sector) While it doesn't have options to customize, it would be great for folks just needing a quick city design to work with.
So... I have a short attention span. This is evidenced by me deciding to take up yet another side project- this time in anticipation of finally receiving my starter rulebook for CAV:SO from reaper this week.
Reaper's CAV line is the only line of minis that are not fantasy (or 40k), and the only line of minis that I have that are not in the 25-28mm range. As such, I don't have much good terrain for them yet.
I have been a fan of paper terrain for awhile, ever since discovering world works games and Dave Graffam's stuff. Upon starting to look around I also found a surprising variety of free paper building templates for a variety of scales- most of which are based in Europe.
So I downloaded a few of those, and then also purchased this pdf from Dave Graffam, which allows me to make office buildings of several sizes and colors that fold flat when not in use, allowing me to store an entire city in a tiny box. Pretty awesome, especially for 3 bucks.
I also found some shipping container templates. Check it out!
I made almost 20 buildings in two evenings:
