Short Cut to Remote Gaming Forum (29 Aug 2020)
Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.
What Minis Are You Painting?
I just did a big Reaper Hydra, several Steve Jackson dragon kits, and a boat load of Hydra Miniature spacemen & robots. (Which are super cool!)
Priming them soon.

(no, but seriously, the sale at mini market means you can pick tons of awesome minis for fractions of a dollar, and when i factor in the time saved buying paint and kit, following the tutorials, waiting for coats of paint to dry, trashing the house as Tourette Hulk and generally wishing nuclear armageddon on everyone posting ACTUAL good painted minis in this thread... it's like they're paying ME to take them off their hands.
I have to say, my copy of Forlorn Hope is starting to look pretty booyakasha, if I do say so myself
It took me forever to do these today. I also picked up a Jack I'm going to work on soon. You can see the step by step progression of these minis in my facebook Miniatures album HERE .

Literally all I did for the Reaper was prime it grey, then I used leather white on the face, and brown on the staff. Then I did a wash undilluted which gave the face a perfect bone grey look to it. Much easier than trying to paint black in the eyes and mouth and such.

I do the same thing, usually when sealing it though. Like I think there is no way that mist was enough to coat the whole thing so I do it two more times, then all my colors get dull. You can sort of tell on the guy standing up in the previous photo.

Cool. I picked up four too. I'm having a helluva time putting the dark elf queen together. I think I need to call in assistance from my minis friend. I think he has a drill and pin method that I need.
I'm going to paint them two-tone: one colour to match the player squad cards,then inked black.
