    First clue is that it's a slot based mini. That narrows it down a little. It's too good to be an early Citadel. Neither the old Dredd, nor the old Rogue Traders are that crisp. The only other...

    The place you want is an outfit called Otherworld Miniatures. Their offerings are the closest I've found that depict the original AD&D aesthetic from back in the 1970s. Check this out:

    Adepticon was cancelled here in Chicago. Things are bad, but look at it this way. At least this gives us time to paint.

    I ended up getting a few packages of 25mm rounds and 25mmx60mm from Proxie Models. They do the job, and at a good price.

    I'd like to take some detailed measurements of these with my micrometer,...

    You've still got the hand; those all seem to be color blocked rather neatly.

    I like that middle Stormcast Eternal, the blue-grey one, the best.

  7. Commercially Available Plain Bases: Any Buyer's Guide?

    I'm doing a set of Retro Rayguns by Hydra, and I'm just about at the point where I need to mount them on bases. Seeing as how my stash of bases is rather low, I'll have to get some more. But then I...

    There are a couple ways I'd do this. I'd most likely just glaze in that texture. Basecoat the mini in your darkest scale shade, like a forest green, a dark brown, deep maroon, dark blue, etc. ...

    I like the palate you use for those beastclaws; it looks like they've been out in the cold a long time. And the big beastclaw looks like it has been out especially long.

    Brown is a complicated color. I find it one of the more subtle and deceptive colors. Some browns are more like dark golds or dark yellows. Other browns are more like dark reds, oranges, or...

    Hehe...they don't call Quickshade Strongtone 'liquid talent' for nothing!

    To be honest, it took me awhile to get used to Army Painter. I was a Polly S guy, which was a rather thin-bodied acrylic,...

    I remember when Polly S came out. Before that time, we had to deal with Testors enamels. Polly S may be gone (I still think it was the best acrylic out there), but there's a whole lot more out...

    I've been painting with Army Painter for about a year now. Here's the thing that a lot of people who get these paints don't understand: they are packed to the top with medium, which is rather thick...

    When something is dead, the heart stops beating, and the blood no longer has oxygen. As a result, fresh blood no longer goes to the skin, depriving it of that natural pinkish orange glow. So the...

    The Gunpla folks have this sort of thing down to a science. Gamera Baenre has particularly good tutorials on layering. Those "fancy distressed layers" you mentioned are called filters in the...
  16. Thank you for the reply. My models are all...

    Thank you for the reply. My models are all either white metal or lead (for my really old sculpts), so working with the cast on integrated bases is a bit harder. If they were plastic or resin, I'd...
  17. How do You Like to Integrate Integrated Bases?

    Hello Ya'll,

    I've got several Battletech minis I want to mount on plastic hex bases, as well as a dozen or two 28mm character models with integrated (molded on) bases that I want to mount on...

    I like doing a 1:1 paint to water. I have a cup of clean water with an eyedropper just for thinning. This makes the paints really "inky," like a wash (as you described), but the acrylics I use are...

    Santa gave me the Army Painter Mega Set. No more messing with my old, dried out Citadel Colors, Polly-S, and Liquitex anymore.
