    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    I could probably run off a string of jokes or tales of the various misadventures of my drinking days that would last quite awhile, but that is about it.
  5. I'll get organized and post a picture soon. What's the protocol on those? I'd be happy to pass it to somebody who would use it in a game. Before the next round I am going to swap out some vintage lead that hasn't been picked in two rounds; I've got more pewter that's been marked as surplus in the meantime.
  6. It's been a rough month so far, with a couple of weekends occupied by trips. I have a unit of vintage orcs on the table that should be finished this weekend, and I did dust off a Dark Ages Norman archer at lunch yesterday and finish him.

    Getting to Know You, May 2018

    Well, as you all know by now, I'm more the quiet type, don't talk that much at all. So I think I couldn't. Well maybe a little about Military History, like did you know the Germans and Soviets inspected each other's facilities during their non-aggression pact? And that the Russians were very angry when the Germans showed them their new PZKFW II Tank.. They didn't believe it was their heaviest tank and got upset. Of course this triggered the Germans who now made haste to build better and heavier panzers. But like I said, I don't like to talk that much. Maybe a little about animals both present day and extinct animals are awesome and I could talk a little about that. Like if you touch a Great White Shark on exactly the right spot on the nose, it gets catatonic for a few moments and you can swim away without any problem. Luckily I'm the quiet type, hate those people who keep yapping...Else I might talk about food as well. Another hobby. Here is an easy but delicious recipe for green beans. Take enough green beans for 4 persons ( in Dutch 500 grams) Sliced Bacon ( 250 grams) Unsalted Cashews ( 150 grams) 1 part of fresh garlic, 2 tablespoons of Olive Oil and 4 sliced sundried tomatoes. Break or cut the green beans in halves, cook them for three minutes. Get them out of the water and let them cool off. Heat the oil. Ad the sliced garlic, then after a minute or two add the bacon, let the bacon fry for three minutes. Add the green beans, stir fry for 8 minutes. Add the cashews and the sliced sundried tomatoes. Stirf fry for another two minutes. Serve with a nice piece of meat and some fries or rice. Glad that I'm not the talkative kind or I would talk about my love for music. Especially Hard Rock/Heavy Metal/Rock and Roll in all it's forms. Did you know Lemmy from Motörhead ( Rock In Peace, Lemmy!) has been a roadie for Jimi Hendrix before he joined Hawkwind and wrote the hit single Silver Machine? Nobody needs that one guy who talks too much.. So glad I'm not him. And then we have the miniature hobby. I started out painting military model kits, like planes, ships and tanks. Then I made dioramas with panzers and infantry. Also loved the Napoleonic and Roman period. But I was too much of a perfectionist and lost my fun, needing to paint a mini in exactly the right shade of Field Grau or Prussian Blue. So it was a relief when I discovered the first Fantasy miniatures from Prince August/Grenadier and Early Citadel. Loved painting something from my imagination. Still do. I do paint the occassional Historical mini now and then. And nowadays I realise that a lot is unknown. So painting a Roman Centurion or a Greek Hoplite is almost like painting a fantasy mini since nobody really knew what their tunic or shield really looked like. Did I tell you I love dogs? No I didn't because I don't talk that much. I grew up with a Boxer Dog, my parents continued to keep Boxer Dogs when I left home and I did too. I have fond memories of my former furry friends and am very happy that we now have our Brutus. Already 5 yrs old..mostly they reach 10 to 11 yrs old very rarely 12 or more. Time goes too fast. I could talk about my love of movies and books. Especially scifi and fantasy. I can't watch war movies though. Most of them annoy me when I spot stuff that's wrong. Like US. Patton tanks starring as WW II German Panzers...Ugh! I could smash a TV for that! So I won't look at those anymore, only documentaries about wars interest me for that reason. I practiced martial arts for decades, Judo, Kick-Boxing, Wu Shu ( Kung Fu ) and Sanda, Jeet Kune Do, MMA. Won quite a few matches as an amateur, lost some of course as well, but was never K.O.ed! Still pretty proud of that. Love to hike in nature, preferably with my girl. The things you see when walking through forests and mountains and deserts, awesome! Also like to go on vacation, and yes I'm a real tourist then, a hotel, restaurants and just doing nothing, maybe visit a museum or some ruins. Ahhhhh just doing nothing and eat well.. So nice! I do love this forum, it helped me improve my painting, motivates me to do so and show my work. Also made some online friends who happen to be real. You see most people think online friendship isn't real, but I've seen otherwise here. Thank you all for that! I could talk about other stuff, but like I said I don't like to talk that much.

    I think I may have a couple of those minis. I have the cardboard floor plans too.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    PaizoCon highlights so far: - "Hold on, I need to get all of these kobolds out of my purse" - MrBoot opens a bag of oranges with a sword. Because that's what real men do - A one-eyed, one-horned, flying periwinkle people-eater wyvern is inflicted with a cursed crown of dancing by the party. A wyvern is not designed to wear hats. It is physically unable to remove it - Rock Hardabs, the most fightery fighter that ever fightered, makes his debut. I would have given him sword-chucks if it had been an option - Yay people like the Paint and Take! - Paint water shots are strongly discouraged. Despite how much the tiny cup of rinse water may resemble booze - I have been awarded the title of BossBoot - Marvel character clowns are happening. Ironman with a giant clown smile is never not unsettling - Sylverthorne and I take delight in explaining the Goblin Challenge to people and watching their eyes bug out - Many brand new painters have been shown the glory of drybrushing. All are in agreement that it is magic - The paladin is licking the boat to see if it tastes like grain. ...You had to be there - I am given an inquisitor character. He has a book for a weapon. I discover halfway through the game that it can be used as a ranged weapon. We encounter a gelatinous cube. I throw the book at it. - No, you can't make a diplomacy check against a gelatinous cube - We are being attacked by a goblin accountant with a magic coathanger - Come paint a mini! The first taste is free..... - Sleep is a thing?! - Serious discussion of shiny metallic paints. Because shiny is srs bsns. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    What I found equally odd was that they used the part where the one guy was basically saying D&D was the only thing keeping him from beating someone to death in the street, because it let him release his rage and bloodlust in a game. I think the lady player would have had something to say that was, at the very least, as insightful as that and probably wouldn't have helped fuel the "role playing games make you a murderer" narrative that came about in the 80's.

    I finally locked in my Rappan Athuk 5e pledge. Thankfully I had already pledged for the actual book or else I wouldn't have been able to get it. As it is, I'm a little sad that I wasn't able to throw more money at extras. It would have been cool to get the photoshop files of the maps, or at least the printed map folio, but I settled for getting actual adventure content instead by getting the Zelkor's Ferry book and the level 5D book. And now I'm also getting antsy about my last Badger airbrush that I bought as part of their birthday promo back in January. Back on the 3rd they had made a Facebook post about the last of the orders hopefully being shipped out by the 11th, but it's been radio silence since then with no airbrush in sight. I can be very patient, but at 6 months in, and after being told there were only a couple hundred orders remaining to be shipped, I'm starting to wonder. Also, I'm debating doing something semi-naughty with the check I'm getting in July when my employer buys back some of my unused sick time. Instead of using it to take a big chunk out of my dental bills, I'm thinking of using it for leisure instead and treating myself to a new game console and a game or two. I don't know if I will, but I'm very tempted to...
