Been a while since I've had any time to paint, but I've started prepping some figs for some speed painting. Still need to clean up the excess sand and I missed a few spots priming.
Apologies for the cellphone pics.
They will be painted to match these ones: https://pbs.twimg.com/media/A_vbCZ9CIAACMNQ.jpg:large http://www.dakkadakka.com/s/i/at/at2/2013/1/29/db388a97063d54040f48d564e1ef 4b6a_61721.jpg
Hopefully have time this week and next.
Hit the 15k stretch goal:
Not bad for a weekend, another stretch goal has been hit.

If this was part of a collection then the pacing would be fine but we're looking at another week of waiting. Even if this is ended next strip we're looking at 3+ denouncement pages and that is far too much for having to look at pycho-dad yet again magically thwomp the order with Miss unlimited PP.
Yeah, and we are paying good money....
Oh wait. It's free :)
Shared order, and not locked in, but this is what it is looking like:
Core Set x 1
Expansion Set I x 2
Expansion Set II x 1
Dragons Don't Share 2 x 5
Even more pics of the ruins and the tarrasque and the dragons:
4 hours to go.
And a scale shot of the tarrasque, although most of the details are covered - I think someone has masked him off for air brushing:
The latest goal - A dragon, a ruined tower and a band of greedy adventurers for 35 dollars:
If you want around 100 dollars worth of stuff you can also pledge at the 100 dollar level. Reaper says you can spend the 100 dollars any way you like - either on a core set, or 2 expansions, or 1 expansion + add ons, or all add ons.
They flipped over another trick card, a troll slayer sophie added to the core set at 2.2 million.
28 mm scale (normal rpg scale), made of bones, and extras available for $2 each.
We're coming down to the last few days, and it's time to get serious! Spread the word on every forum, Tweet it from the heavens, Facebook about it, Upvote us on Reddit, and put us in your Dash on Tumblr!
Boom another stretch goal down!
Next up is a horrific giant rot grub demon!
The Big bad bathalians. All nice large sized eldritchy horrors.
And some mindflayer / sci fi alien / cthuhlu monsters with extra arms:
Spotted this joke in the comments:
Acrylic thinner is going to be crucial for the base coat as well.
Normally you thin miniature paints down with water. The PVC material bones are made out of is hydrophobic - water beads up on it. So for your base coat you need to either not thin the paint (RMS, Vallejo, Citadel) or thin it with matte medium / acrylic thinner (craft paints).
Or as Deathquaker suggests, prime the mini with gesso or another brush on primer. Check the reaper forums to see which primers work well with PVC.
After the base coat is down you can thin with water as normal, the paint will stick to the base coat.
