I'm currently a little frustrated with my Reaper Bones Cthulhu project; it's still the same old story, a fight for love and glory, a case of do or die...ahem. Sorry, CASABLANCA flashback there. As I was trying to say, it's the same story many painters have had regarding Bones; getting the paint to stick.
I primed the head and body separately because I wanted to be able to paint a lot of the detail in the head without straining my wrist holding up the entire figure. Even though I primed them the same way, at the same time, in the same conditions, the body is completely fine, but the head is tacky and flaking. I tried putting the head in baking soda, as was recommended to me, for 24 hours (I ended up giving it 72 because I haven't had much time to work on painting lately), to alleviate the tackiness and this doesn't seem to have done anything.
I'm going to have to think on this.
As an aside, while I have Amazon Prime and can get free two-day shipping, that would put my delivery date for my stuff at December 24th. My dad's a mail carrier, and I know what hell this time of year is for them. I'm not about to put more work on my mail carrier, so I opted for a slower delivery and so won't be playtesting until around the first of the year.
If anyone's interested, let me know and I'll put up the playtest rules for A.R.M.Y.M.E.N. up for download.
