    • Here is a (~15 minutes) video I just uploaded to accompany my entry in one of the home foundry forums for metal casting hobbyists I am a member of.  I am not sure if I can post the URL for the forum.  It is not attached to a business like these forums, but they do accept donations from members in exchange for extra upload space for pix as well as posting permissions in a few special subforums, to help keep the lights on, the software upgraded, and the bills paid.  A grey area in my mind, rules-wise...  To be safe I will not post a URL unless someone asks or tells me it's OK.  'The Home Foundry' is quite a new forum, not "Alloy Avenue", which I know some of our members here are already familiar with.   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=k5FkA22RWr4   Hope you guys enjoy stuff like this!   The video is just part 1, showing how I made the Styrofoam pattern for a spooky new cast aluminum belt buckle.  I tried to make my project something that anyone could do who has some kind of a way to melt and pour metal and who owns a bucket of sand, so that the video could be more interesting for casting newbies and old timers alike.  You will see me using a band saw and a belt sander here, but I still could have done this project even if the only tools I own were a hacksaw, a file, and a sheet of sandpaper.  Oh, and a hot glue gun..   I would have liked to enter my foam-cast aluminum electric Jack-O'Desk Lamp, but the rules of the contest ask for a new project that hasn't been shown online before, which rules Jack out.  For this project I am using lost foam casting because, as you will see in the video, I have a sizable hoard of styrofoam skulls and other Hallowe'en décor I've been gradually accumulating over the years, which is perfect for casting stuff like this.  Which of course is the reason I've been hoarding the stuff.   Part 2, showing the pour and the finishing of the belt buckle will be going up sometime before Hallowe'en, barring some unforeseen disaster.   I know I am not the only one on this site who casts metal, so I just thought I'd share the info about this contest going on in case anyone wants to try and beat me to that sweet, sweet prize money.  I am not even sure we have enough entrants for judging to take place yet.  Better sign up quick if you're interested!   Here's another video where Dave, the new forum's owner, announces the contest and gives a little more detail about how to enter:   https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqaGUePrM28   Kang  
    • Oh, to visit my dad. I told him several times yesterday that I'd visit him this morning. And I don't want to not show up. He's been all anxious because my brother went back to California, my not showing would probably cause him more anxiety.
    • and STILL waiting.    BackerKit still shows "Ready to Ship".  Looking through the comments it would seem I'm not the only one.  Just sent an email to the contact they provided in the comments, so hopefully I'll hear SOMETHING soon. 
    •   This project is still shipping stuff until 2019.  but there will be sales in the KoD web store, if this year has been any indication. new pinups most likely.  probably a chance to get expansions at 25% off  as for the core game - he really cant sell it until shipping is done - but then retail copies will be available.   
    • Yeah, I went  a little crazy on this one.  Out of 22 figures, I'm getting 19 of them in 54mm.  Only ones I didn't go for were Bonnie, Basia, and the original Lagertha.  I wasn't impressed with Azumi's concept art, but I really like the render, so that just got added.  I look forward to the challenge.  I had three other guys go in on this with me, and the total is over $650.    Just couldn't pass up the deal, and I had the money available.    I'm curious to see when they'll update the delivery on this, since it obviously didn't deliver last month!  Personally I'd expect beginning of next year at this point, since they still have four more renders to show, then there's prototypes, molds, production, & packaging still to go. One of the guys who backed with me, got to see the figures they brought to AdeptiCon and he was favorably impressed.
