    @Ghool.... isn’t the bust breaking into three a good thing? Can’t you charge extra for having painted more pieces?

    I also think your scores are around what I’d expect. Yxalitis has pretty much said it. No one will learn if honest scores and critiques aren’t given. I’d like to think that most people here ARE...

    Good to hear that it doesn’t sound too serious. Hopefully as you say, it’s just a day or two in hospital to make sure all is ok. I’ll be sending good wishes his way.

    Best thing about the Bones is that your 6yr old isn’t going to care about the quality of the paint job. All he is going to care about is the fact Dad took time to paint them for his games. And that...
