The mold lines basically cover every last detail on Nott, and their details are fuzzy at best. Maybe I've gotten spoiled lately, but they have worse detail than most of the bones in my collection. You can't really make out Nott's bandages at all...she's the one I started with because I was watching the latest episode and wanted a small one to start with. They are definitely the lowest quality in my collection.


But that's just my opinion. I also have OCD, so those mold lines are more or less deal breaking for me.


Thanks.  I'm not a fan of the show, just a supporter of small Kickstarters, so I'm not emotionally invested in them.  I opened up the add-on box with the 4 guys who all look alike, the fighter and the robot guy. They all seemed clean cast to me.  But I can certainly understand your frustration with mold lines on one of the smaller figures.

@Mouse is it just too much work to scrape away the mold lines? Too many of them?

A bit. There is also some slippage (not sure how to fix it when the lines protrude inward), and the lines go over some of the few details on the models. 


It's fine, though, as I said - I'm moderately invested in them and needed something to paint that would be prohibitive to get to display quality anyway to get through this hurdle.



On Bones 1 - I started painting around the Bones 3 release, so I don't really have any Bones 1 minis. I did buy the Bones 3 core, Stonehill? Mansion Expansion, and Graveyard expansion on release, though.

Please no.  I've had that all week.  If like a quiet weekend to play games and paint.  Between this week and next in dealing with oral surgery and starting a new cancer drug.  I would really like this to be the calm between storms.

Ok you take it easy Kanga. It so far has been an smooth ride, but I still have to go to work..... It might be one heck of a ride.

Last night at the FLGS was a blast even thou I didn't get to run either game I had planned. I didn't have any signees but it doesn't matter to me. I ended up playing in a PFS game, been many years since I was on players side & a "normal" character for Pathfinder. I just played a pre-gen. Just good to get to play with the Pathfinder guys for once.


Money raised for Extra Life was allot. I know by 11 pm there was at least $500 dollars turned into the store. They had extra "cheats" for all the games last night. If you donated, you got back a plastic dino for each buck. There was a cheat sheet what you could do per game. Example in the Pathfinder game, we could reroll for 1 dino, or 5 to roll a D60. Best was 5 or 10 for random monster (5 was on a d12 chart, 10 was whatever you wanted per selection & they were doozies). Guy came in & plopped down a $100 for the charity & then used allot of it in the game to summon up random critters. :blink: (Best one was a T-Rex in a Dungeon corridor). He said he was saving most of it for today's games. :lol:


Alcohol was a flow'n after the store closed. The We Be Goblins game was a blast even thou I wasn't in it. I was the wandering beer merchant & I used my dinos to make the GM  (or whoever I wanted) take a shot of whatever he wanted. Anyone of course, could counter it by their dinos with a mixer or non-alc drink. While the game was scheduled to go until it ended at 4 AM, it was called early as the GM was severely intoxicated + as part of the Extra Life thing, he was gonna run a "Hung over" game of Pathfinder this morning. Also nice is no one wandered off & no one drove home intoxicated, as there was DDs & such.


All in all a fun time for a great cause. The charity & the benefactor meant allot to the owners of the store so I didn't mind putting a little more then I had planned into it.


"For the Children!!!" :poke:

Ran into somebody on the Reaper Twitch stream that I used to game with more than 30 years ago. If nothing else, looks like we'll be able to get together for dinner at next ReaperCon.

      Congratulations, by opening this forum post, you have received a quest!
      This quest is a challenge created by the combined forces of @Sirithiliel the Queen Tiamacrab, a Wizard Most Wild @Pezler the Polychromatic, and myself – @Cyradis the Questgiver.
      The challenge is this! Paint a small dragon, letting the dice control the colors!
      The Rules:
      Post in the WIP Forums “_Your Pseudonym_ is taking the random rainbow dragon challenge!” or “_Your Pseudonym_ has accepted the d20 rainbow dragon quest!” something to that extent.

      Select a figure from one of the following: Stormwing (from Bones III), Kryphrixis (from Bones III), Deathsleet (77110), or Ebonwrath (77102).

      You must select the dragon BEFORE rolling for colors. Take a photo with the figure and a clock as proof of order of operations.  
      Roll for colors! Use a d20 and a photo, or an online dice roller with a screenshot as proof of rolling. Or have a fellow forum dweller vouch for your rolls. Use the Color Chart below to determine what the color is that you rolled. There are three rolls. Below is an online dice roller. Most keyboards have a PRT SCRN button that can take a screenshot for you. Then you can paste the photo into Paint to save. I'm sure there are better methods, but that works for me. 


      The first roll determines what your primary base color is. That must be the dominant color on the figure.

      The second roll determines your secondary color. It should be the second color that catches the eye, and second most prevalent color on the figure.

      The third roll determines your miscellaneous color. This should be most of the accent colors that you use, and third most prevalent color on the figure.

      You might need to order paint or go to the FLGS after rolling if you don’t have a given bottle – we’ll be patient and wait for you. If you can’t get a bottle of one of these colors, here is a spreadsheet with equivalent colors from different brands. If you really can't get them, use the closest thing you got to your rolls (let us know what they are please). 

      Reaper #
      Color Name
      Color Description
      Fire Red
      Bright red
      Clotted Red
      Dull red
      Lava Orange
      Volcanic orange
      Orange Brown
      Dull orange
      Lemon Yellow
      Bright yellow
      Brilliant green
      Bright green
      Olive Green
      Olive dull green
      True Blue
      Bright blue
      Heather Blue
      Dull light blue
      Imperial Purple
      Deep purple
      Violet Red
      A very misnamed color; somewhere between burgundy and magenta. Not violet.
      Blush Pink
      Very pink
      Earth Brown
      Generic brown
      Terran Khaki
      Light brown
      Mint Green
      Bright pastel green
      Cloudy Grey
      Generic grey
      Marine Teal
      Teal, blueish
      Palomino Gold
      Earthy gold yellow
      Pure Black
      Super black. Critical threat!
      Pure White
      Super white. Critical threat!
      You are allowed to use whatever colors to shade and highlight that you want, as long as the rolled colors are obvious visually.* Example: you can shade a red dragon with purple, brown, or black, but it must always appear as a red dragon. A white dragon shaded with grey must appear as a white dragon, not a grey dragon.   
      You are allowed to use colors outside the ones that you rolled, but they must not take up more visual surface area than any of the others.** Example: your pink, green, and gray dragon is allowed to have bone-beige teeth.  
      The proportions of color on the figure can be however you want, as long as the 1st roll is dominant, 2nd is less, 3rd is less, and anything else smaller. Example: 70% pink, 15% green, 10% gray, and 5% anything else. Or it could be 50% pink, 25% green, 15% grey, and 10% anything else. The tidbit colors are fine wherever, as long as they are minor. 
        Paint your dragon according to the rolls plus your tidbits. Even if it is outrageous. The goal is to make the dragon look as awesome as possible without the benefit of planning color themes. You can add spots, stripes, eye-spots like moths have, or nothing. This is the base challenge. 
        Star 1* You may decide after your initial three rolls to limit your shading colors to your rolled colors mixed with pure black and white. You may still use tidbit colors. Declare this if you go for a Star 1 challenge!
        Star 2** You may decide after your initial three rolls to not use colors outside of your rolled ones and shading colors (so no tidbits like beige teeth, only 3 visual colors shaded however you want). Declare this if you go for a Star 2 challenge!
        Star 3*** You may decide to do both the Star 1 and Star 2 challenges, using absolutely nothing but your three rolled colors, plus black and white for shading. If you do this, you are allowed to use the white for areas like teeth and eyes that could be really weird otherwise (or not - up to you). Effectively, you have 5 colors to work with only, and three of them must be the majority (in decreasing order of prevalence). You gotta be nuts!
        There is no time limit on this. However, if the WIP photos stop showing up at a normal rate and there’s never a Show Off thread, the forum dwellers may gently poke fun at you for adding this to your Shelf of Shame.
        Post to the Show Off forums with a “_Your Pseudonym_ has completed the random rainbow dragon challenge!” sort of title upon completion. Brag about your awesome (or hilarious) dragon. Win all the internet-points. Receive experience and praise. Thus shall end the quest.
        Once the first Random Rainbow Dragon has been completed, we will start up a group Show Off thread to compile all of the dragons in a great flock of rainbowy goodness.

      After seeing my first thread on it (I think it was @Glitterwolf's thread for such an honour) my first thought was pretty much "that looks like a LOT of fun", followed closely by "but I've never painted anything other than a few Space Marines!".  Yeah, well, challenge accepted, because I kind of fell in love with how Ebonwrath looks.
      Yup, I'm going into this technically with very little skill in painting, but while I'm waiting for Ebonwrath (and some gnolls and paint, gnolls are the honour guard for the paint, I swear) I'll have both of the learn to paint kits to work through, and assuming everything pans out (aka assuming I filled out my Canada Post FlexDelivery stuff correctly) I'll be picking those up after work today, and then about a week and a half (ish) later Ebonwrath will be in.  Seems like a semi-insane thing to do, dive right into painting a dragon when you originally were getting paints to steadily work on your WH40k Catachans army (and Skaven, sooooo many Skaven o_O ), but I figure why not have fun with life.  Besides, what better to put all the new skills the LTPK's are designed to help you get a baseline grasp on than a gigantic dragon of cuddles DOOOOOOOM that, in my eyes at least, can be bribed with cookies.
      Some say I'm insane, I say to be a good delivery driver you need just enough insanity...  Not enough to pass the entrance exams, but enough to be perfectly fine wearing shorts in -5C weather.  :P
      Anyways, onto the rolls!

      I wound up rolling 14, 19, and 3....  So Terran Khaki as the main, Pure Black as the secondary colour, and Lava Orange as a highlight.  Well now, that's an interesting mix in my eyes.  I'm not quite certain as to how this mix will pan out, but on the flipside I chose to dive into this headfirst, so I'm also going to give it a whirl as a full on three star challenge.  I'm actually kind of liking the sound of these colours, as I've had a number of different design possibilities come to mind already!

      Obviously, given the current promo and Rictus seeming like a nice and dedicated, honourable skeleton, I had to get a few other items into the cart for free shipping (plus a free skeleton!), and for someone to keep the gnolls in check while Ebonwrath is napping away in it's blister pack.  Can't let the gnolls steal the cookies after all.  Pure Black is included in one of the Learn To Paint Kits, so I didn't add it into the order from Reaper.
      Here's hoping I won't have to make too too much room in my gaming area to work on Ebonwrath ^_^;;;;; (since it's still another two months before I can get a dedicated miniatures area set up, but man am I looking forward to such!)
      EDIT (Jan 7th @ 15:44 MST): Totally forgot to add this in...  For additional information regarding the rainbow dragon challenge, here's the main thread for it!

      Link to original challenge: 
      I don't have any of the dragons selected for the challenge. I do have the dracolisk, https://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/basilisk/latest/77379
      So I'm painting that. 
      Die roll, 13, 18, 2.  Earth brown, palomino gold, clotted red.   Good colors.  I don't have the Earth or Clotted Red but can approximate. 
      Baby needs a bath first.

      So I decided to do this random dragon challenge thing.
      My rolls.

      Main 20 9039 Pure White
      Secondary 6 9227 Brilliant green
      Miscellaneous 10 9023 Imperial Purple
      And my intent is to do the 3 star challenge, I was planning this before rolling.  Interesting colors, I have the pure white but not the other two.
      The arrival of Deathsleet with his Halloweeny reinforcements, and the missing two paints.

      And here he is ready for the paint.

      I started with giving him a primer of brilliant green cut with 2-3 times as much pure white.

    • By InvisibleThumb
      Stuck my thumb in the box of unpainted bones and pulled out a Kyphryxis.

      must unbag bag and dry fit, trim mold lines and scrub, but first, the random colors...

      15, ah what could that mean?  I'll look later.  Let's roll another.

      seven!  Good.  Nicely spaced numbers.  Will look it up in a minute.  For the third roll...  Well darn gotta wait for the full minute so the time shown is different...  Finally!

      oof!  One!  Critical miss.  Well, it's probably a boring color at the top of the table.  Let's see what this means:
      15: mint green
      7: olive green
      1: fire red 
      huh.  Whadaya know.  Time to go see what I've got for colors... (To be continued)
