Re: I'll try your recipe for painting skulls

How smooth do you want the finish? Personally I go for speed with skulls - spray black, heavy drybrush bone, light drybrush white.

Re: After the migration. Report problems?

This morning I remembered to force myself to click "Unread" and lo! it appears to be working as intended. "New" still show two pages of stuff that, well, isn't new at all.

I'm using Firefox, so it's definately not related to Chrome. It may indeed be that I'm clicking "New" rather than "Unread" - as with all things done so many times for so many years, I'm not actually paying attention to exactly which link I click, it's all just muscle memory. But ...

Re: After the migration. Report problems?

Not sure if the migration caused it or not, but the "Mark Forum Read" button doesn't appear to be working properly. It seems like it works at first, but then when I come back the next day all the old topics are still there, listed as unread.

Re: Avatars of War - "Witch Elves"

As explained in the last update in mid-August, with all production made ​​and packaged, we found that 4 of the pieces of the Vestals had gone faulty. So we had to redo the masters of these parts, and the respective cavities in the injection molds. The toolmaker has finally given us September 17 as ...

Re: Which glue to use ?

I have some GF9 glue that works pretty well. But you have to hold the pieces together for a good half-minute. I highly recommend getting a superglue accelerant spray. No more holding while the stuff sets. Just huff on the joins before pressing together - the moisture in your breath will accelerate ...

Re: Avatars of War - "Witch Elves"

We are already producing the Vestals of Nemesis!



We have to produce 7000 sets, so we estimate that the initial production run, preparation and packaging will last for the whole month of July.

Orders will be shipped during the second half of July and first half of August.

We finally have confirmation from the toolmaker that the test injections are done, and we should be able to approve them during today and start production straight ahead.

So does that mean a 1+ armour save?
Thanks


Thick skin means your Mounted bonus is +2 instead of +1. So the final save is as T.D. posted above.

Re: Fantasy Cliches You are Sick Of.

The fantasy trope that annoys me the most is ethereal creatures - they can hit you, but you can't hit them. Come on now, they either have a physical presence or they don't. This ability to phase in and out of existence just at the exact moment their claws rake through the poor victim's body is just ...

Re: Experimenting with Female Gaming Poses(pic heavy)

Using any female anime character is a bit unfair. Women in anime come in three basic archetypes: 1. Teenage, large-breasted, perky, sexually provocative. 2. Twenties and thirties, large-breasted, perky, sexually provocative. 3. Old, fat, warty (very rare, used only for specific characterisation). Le...

How about something celtic or otherwise historical barbarians? Should be plenty of bare muscly chests in there - some of them even completely naked; doesn't get much more manly than that.

There should be plenty of manufacturers.

So Malekith is a horribly burned, twisted figure, permanently sealed inside his armour which can never be removed.

The old Citadel "Foundation" paints

As my pots reach their inevitable emptying, it's time to start looking for alternatives. Has anyone tried their new citadel replacements? (I believe they're called "base" colours now). Or do any other manufacturers make a similar go-straight-on-over-black-primer product?
