MINIPEDIA by Scale 75- Nov. 5

Recommended Posts

Yeah I am curious about these.  I will be interested to see the cost but some nice reference material would be handy

I like the idea and I like books.  I have one of their books, and while I'm not as down on it as Heisler I did think it was somewhat mediocre.

Yes, and every time I watch one, I get distracted by the list of suggested videos...   

Also, it's possible that I learn better from written material than from videos.

Books definitely have that benefit of being somewhat easier for me to get lost in, and fully focus on them...

I dunno, "scenearies" has me a little worried about the English translation and/or copy editing. Not sure how useful it will be with no scale75 paint in my stash. People who say they have some  books of theirs - @Heisler, @Auberon  is it just promoting their products? How is the language?

If you are asking if they shamelessly promote their own product, then yes.  They paint their figures with their paints.  I guess how much of an issue this will be depends on if you want recipes to follow as written or if you can extrapolate the colors they are using to your own collection.  I would have to reread it to see how the language was, but I don't recall it as broken English.

If you want shameless blagging of products and poor demonstration of actual techniques, just check out the DVDs on painting realistic fire by a certain well-known paint artist that shows up in some car programs.   

 

I expect that compared to that, these books will be a joy to read.

Based on the the titles on the spines, I'm intrigued.  All depends on the price point.

The price is one factor as they can get expensive fast once shipping is included.

 

Seeing the main banner, I'm curious about what translations will be available.

Search for 'true fire dvd' on the river site,  

The artist often did art on cars in the 'Overhaulin' show on TV, and then usually his very realistic flames. He's very good at explaining that he uses an Iwata airbrush, but not much else.

      Throughout the land, small shadowy figures are reported, often just glimpsed out of the corner of the eye.  They go hither, they go thither! They are abroad on unnamed errands and secret quests.  It can only be...
      The Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventuring Party!
      A Set of 10 Classic Cloaked Halfling Adventurers for all of your Fantasy Adventures.
      Welcome to our latest Kickstarter Project, which we are running as a quick campaign, of just over a week.   Our plans for the year, like so many other peoples, have been knocked sideways and we are behind where we planned to be.   To that end, we intend to run this campaign for just over a week, and get the miniatures sent out to backers before the end of the year.
      The classic cloaked halflings project came about because the few halflings we did have with cloaks, always proved popular, and it remains a classic look.  So here we have male and female cloaked halfling with a variety of adventuring gear.
       
       
      Now hurry up, you only have 7 days on this one because they hope to get the minis out the door in time for Christmas.

      This will have to do for now. This is short,  or it's been on a while. 8 days left.
      1-4 minis, kids on bikes (and/or skateboards) style, shipping included.
