    Hi Aniron, I'm honestly not sure but will let you know if I hear anything.

    Hi Zephyr! Yes sir that's right

    Absolutely stunning work Recon - especially if it's just your 17th or 18th mini! False modesty aside - I'm never prouder than when I see a relatively new painter producing such fantastic results after watching one of my videos (especially with a scary character like Vader!) Hi Zrob! All I can suggest is that you either try sticking them down onto some putty of some kind (poster putty etc) - although I'm guessing you've probably tried that already! Otherwise I think I'd agree with Aniron's suggestion that you simply super glue the mini down (onto a spare base or whatever) and remove it once you're done. Sorry - that's all I got!

    Hi Zephyr444! Thank you so much for the kind words, and I'm sorry for the late reply! January is a crazy month at our house due to our having so many family birthdays (and we tend to go a bit crazy with the cake-making as you'll see in the tweet below!) Regarding brush care, I'm afraid I'm pretty lazy in how I treat mine, but I do think a good quality brush will generally last a lot longer than a cheap one. As Aniron rightly mentions there are some good soap-like brush cleaners out there - I've heard really good things about Masters Brush Cleaner (https://goo.gl/BDnR2H) although I've yet to try it myself. I have used a liquid brush cleaner called Zest-it (https://goo.gl/RiEZTS) though, and it's really good; after giving the brush a good clean in some water, a quick dip in some Zest-it and a whole load more pigments come away from the brush. Apart from trying a cleaner, it's also worth remembering to try not to let paint or shade reach the ferrule of the brush. Although I do it all the time in the videos, I'm usually using an old brush, before switching to a newer one to actually paint with. I hope this helps a little! S. )
  6. You guys! Well, I'm happy to let you know that I certainly will be covering The Lord of the Rings: Journeys in Middle-Earth. Let the journey begin! 😃

    Hi Aniron! I'm honestly a little swamped with work at the moment so I'm not sure when I'll get to them. I'd like to cover everything but it's extremely hard to keep up! Hi mate! Not especially, although it does often work out that way. I just like to cover the more interesting or "hot" minis as videos, and the other stuff as PDFs (especially if they're minis I've covered in the IA series and I don't feel I have much new to add) You're welcome Thevshi!

    Hi! They're pretty good value for sure. I just find certain colours a bit tricky to get a nice coat with so I tend to favour Vallejo/Citadel (and more recently some ScaleColor) Hi Lukez! Yes I am!

    Hello! I'm a little late posting this here as I was away visiting family over Christmas when the video launched, but I hope you enjoy(ed) my take on Sabine Wren. Also I'd like to thank all of my dear viewers for the kind words of encouragement that have played such a big part in helping motivate me to reach this 50th episode!

    Thanks a lot Rugal! I hear you RE the bases; my figures actually spend 99.9% of the time sitting in a cabinet so it makes sense for me to give the bases the scenic treatment; clear acrylic bases might be my preferred option if I wanted the minis to blend in with the board however Thank you ZAR! Wow getting that lot painted up is quite an accomplishment, and I bet they look great on the tabletop!

    Hey mate - they look fantastic! Really well done

    Hi Shecian! Thanks a lot! It looks like they've used quite a dark pink-ish tone for the arms and legs, and I think Screamer Pink (if you're using Citadel paints) would be a close match. You could then add some gentle highlights by mixing in a little ivory or cream (like Screaming Skull) perhaps.
