  1. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    I'll back one at most out of the big box of miniatures ks. Zero is likeliest since I don't really have the time to paint many models for myself. Harry Potter would be easiest to sell but I have reservations with KM's quality control and customer service.

    So many kickstarters.

    I have that lamp too. Definitely worth the price.

    It has occurred to me that I'll soon be making a living from painting miniature schoolgirls.

    Those colours look great @feltmonkey

    Yeah, I was surprised JK Rowling allowed that as it doesn't seem in keeping with her character. But KM love posing their female models standing on one foot. Makes them so easy to break.

    They mostly make 75mm scale models hence the name. I picked up several of these larger models from their steampunk range and they're pretty cool. Just a matter of finding the time...

    Another company with great models but a communication problem is scale75. They launched a new kickstarter today for a series of busts based on models from the scifi wargame they failed to support in any meaningful way. I really enjoyed painting a bust from their previous kickstarter so I'll be backing this too.

    I'm not sure what I would prefer. The KM resin is very brittle and I've already thrown out three broken models since the material switch. I can imagine that using the resin without any changes would result in a lot of broken wands. KM really are hopeless when interacting with their customers. I'm annoyed they've given us so little time as I've recently spent a fair amount on models for personal projects that I'll have to sell quickly to pay for this kickstarter.

    Speaking of painting demonstrations, I've agreed to lead a workshop at a local library for new D&D players. It's all part of my get out into the real world having spent the last five years talking only to my wife and dog. And he's deaf and also a dog. The organizer is estimating about 50 people will attend so I'm hoping "use it or lose it" applies to social anxiety In other news, it's finally happening but in a way no one expected https://www.harrypotterkickstarter.com/ Good timing though. I've been back and forth on a couple of upcoming kickstarters, Monolith's Batman and Mantic's Hellboy, but this makes up my mind. Unless it's stupidly expensive I'll be going all in.

    Ha, I'm not quite up for that yet. Been a long time since I read comics and even then I mostly read manga so I don't have a lot of references for superheroes. But I have found a couple of comic book artists whose work I'm figuring out how to recreate in 3D.

    He has a whitish tongue in the comic that inspired the design. I'm not sure what monolith will be doing. So far they've posted it on their facebook page without any credit which was a bit annoying. I did get a free model out of it and I was able to try a painting style I've been thinking a lot about. I'll be taking the comicbook style a bit further, possibly developing a signature look.
  13. The Miniatures Appreciation Thread

    I was sent this Killer Croc model from Monolith as a promotion for their upcoming kickstarter campaign. Given the more comic book style of the sculpt (based on his appearance in Hush) I thought I'd give him an appropriate painting.

    Blood. She's a steampunk vampire.
