  1. Past hour
  2. I imagine whoever the painter is is painting for all their worth trying to get it done to show off before the madness starts!
  3. Summon forth the @Reaper Ron!
  4. Concept art often looks good on 2d paper, but is impractical for either 3d appearance, or casting purposes. There are a variety of other possible reasons, but concept art rarely makes it to finished product completely unchanged.
  5. Ludo is here today and will be until about 10pm CST: https://hangouts.google.com/call/npjd45asqnbehep7d6afmtnw4eu Witness the glory that is his 7-day Ma'al drakar! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. The post office here was a major hassle, from what I saw. (I was mailing a package at the time, but many people were getting passports.) The local county courthouse was much easier. Also closer to hubby's office, which is important when you're getting a child's passport and need to both show up.
  7. Yeah. Liiner is huge in figuring out what some things are on the figures. And with this guy, I started in brown liner and am working my way up and out...
  8. It would be very easy to do a weapon swap with this figure - Definitely a sense of motion, if not exactly stealthy.... The Auld Grump
  9. More than just breakage. I'm used to stores moving expired eggs into new cartons. You can see thin shells, feel large air pockets, and smell sulfur when the eggs go bad. Always check for those things.
  10. Ditto. 10 seconds to check the eggs, totally worth it.
  11. I stopped following their fluff when they released AOS. The old stuff was more to my liking.
  12. "Quoting a bike-helmet study published in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics, he wrote that 235 kg (520 pounds) or 2,300 newtons of force would be needed to crush a human skull, almost twice as much force as human hands could possibly muster.Jun 4, 2014" So to keep things "simple", let's say 520 lbs to crush someone. Multiplying by 20 gives us 10,400 lbs. So that makes the question do I have 10,400 lbs of minis? The answer then is "Not yet".
  13. And that's what's important!
  14. I Certainly do.
  15. But I've always been able to dress as a pirate!
  16. I might hop on for a bit tonight.
  17. So yeah... looks like I have a room at the Hilton Garden and am looking for someone to split costs. Iffen you're interested, PM me. We can discuss. I like to paint after the classes are over. I don't have my kids around so I try to get as much done as possible. :)
  18. How many minis would it take to crush a person to death? Take that and multiply by 20.
  19. Define "enough".
  20. This attempt is extra amazing due to the unusual material conditions. I'm impressed you're doing it at a store! Get any fans or groupies yet? Have you had to explain that it's totally not a crazy thing to do because you're only following the instructions of an internet goblin who is totally real you guise?
  21. Ever since OneBoot fixed the title of this thread, since my brain is not used to seeing the "c" in its rightful place, I keep thinking it now says Department of Accusations. As such, I accuse you all of not buying enough minis.
  22. Ours only does passports by appointment. We were looking at the dates and they didn't look right. That's when we realized it was for the next month, and it was almost full! Thank goodness we were doing it early. Work week is not off to a good start. Really want to curl up on the floor in the fetal position. and cry a puddle all over the Standard Cubicle Carpet Style #15. Or maybe I'll just buy a chocolate bar instead. Yeah. Going to go with chocolate. And maybe get a bit more sleep tonight.
  23. Ludo says to hop on over when you're free; he'll be there until about 10pm CST. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  24. I'd join you if I weren't in a conference call.
  25. Doesn't everyone do that?
  26. Hmm. In cleaning out my closet (I'm pulling everything out, reassessing it, separating out recycling, and eventually repacking) I found a number of eighteenth-century-style ruffle-front shirts from Le Château. So far as I know there hasn't been a Le Château in town since 1990, maybe 1992. I find myself deeply glad that I have never been particularly fashionably dressed.
