Over at Munnin's Brush, a blog dedicated to painting and modelling, what was supposed to be simple trip to the cousin's house turned into a tour of Reaper Miniatures Headquarters in Denton, Texas. (How did that happen? You'll have read the blog).
Here's Part 1: front store and molds, and Part 2: Casting and Paint.
He's taken some really interesting pictures of what goes on "behind the scenes" at Reaper... including how they bottle paints using kidney laboratory pumps (?). You'll have to see for yourselve.
Part 3: Sculpting & Gallery, should be up soon.
