Three things today:
My Reaper Bones came yesterday, so I've slotted some time today to go through them and make sure it's all there. The add-ons are, for sure - including my 9" tall C'thulhu! Not sure yet what I'll do with that, although I do have stats for him in GURPS already.
I got a Vampire pledge and a couple add-ins instead of Sophie (I don't collect the models of her, and I don't need a naked succubus on a motorcycle). So I have a lot of plastic here - more than 6 1/2 pounds of it. I have - aside from add ons - 240 minis to get through and check. I do want to make sure nothing is missing ASAP. And then I can start sorting aside the ones I have no use for, for trade or sale.
So yeah, it's "sort and check them off the list" day here. We'll see if I get through it before I need to do actual work.
Apparently I'm not supposed to need to prime my Bones, but we'll see how that works out with my sloppy painting skills and cheap craft paints.
But I just posted something on the primers I use on d20 Dark Ages, so I'll post it here, too.
Here is what I use:
White - Rustoleum Painter's Touch Sandable Primer #1981
Gray - Rustoleum Painter's Touch Sandable Primer #1980
Black - either Varsity Fast Drying Primer P-1147
Brite Touch General Purpose Primer BT50
I'm a big fan of layered sealers, so here is what I use:
Rustoleum Matte Clear #1902 (says "matte" but it's just "low gloss.")
I put a layer of that on anything I painted but didn't dip or coat with Quickshade.
Testor's Flat (Lusterless) Dullcote 1260
Army Painter Anti-Shine Matte Varnish
I highly recommend the Army Painter stuff - it's not expensive for its size (roughly $12 for 400 ml aka a full-size can) and it doesn't turn your mini to snow.
Okay, back to sorting the bones . . .
