    In my LOST WORLD PROJECT I'm telling a story about Exploring and looting Conquistadores, Dinosaurs, Natives and Reptilians. WIP here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/69308-lost-world-project-xherman1964-paints-coldblooded-creatures-and-conquistadores/ From this little world of my imagination I give you Sergeant Fillippa ( Gamezone Mounted Imperial Pistolier) and Mitla ( Freebooter Tamazolli, Amazone) riding their vicous mount a Giganotosaurus ( 3D printed model by Krentz.) the base is from Micro Art Studio. Hope you enjoy it. EDIT: Almost forgot..the dead Panther saddle is made of Milliput, the head, tail and paws were donated by the Reaper Bones Lioness.

    I started this guy last year at Reapercon in the Convert a colossal skeleton class, and entered him into the open category at this year's Reapercon; he earned a bronze. WIP is located here: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/62739-colossal-skeleton-conversion-for-reapercon-2016/

    Ok, who broke the forums?!? I was starting to get really twitchy there for a bit. I found the convo going on on FB, but discovered that I am not a member of that group; all I could do was watch through the windows and paw at the door, hoping someone would notice me. Nobody did. It was COLD outside last night, you guys. Good luck!

    One more day at my current job and then I start at the new location on Sunday. I feel both anticipation and apprehension.

    It occurred to me as I was about to sleep... "Don't read the comments" does not apply to us. Other places/people talking on a company page about a broken feature on their website would be full of rage and insults. Not us. 284 comments, and we're just chatty. I love each and every one of you so much.

    ReaperCon 2016 Review video is saving off now. Had a mere 19 throat clearings to edit and remove. Got smart this time and wrote down the time of the recording so I could skip ahead to each one and exterminate. While that's saving off, I'm going to be looking for the pack of three mousling sets from the last kickstarter. Wife wants to paint. WIFE MUST PAINT. She's getting scary guys. I'm a little afraid.

    Reapercon loot!!! (minus the swag bag stuff; that's been shown before) Bones conversion kit (a bunch of random bones parts put into a blister pack and sold--very cool idea, I think) it has since been opened; I've got some neat stuff. Ideas are forming.... The rest you should be able to read This has Chaos paint set written all over it, so I had to get it. Plus, the name! 14353 Dwarf Warrior, 03566 Valloa, female elf thief, and the Harpy, super villain Rescued from the melt table, pt.1 Rescued from the melt table, pt. 2 WIP base from Michael Proctor's basing class 'The Thing'--made in the bones conversion class, and soon to become one my projects for next years Reapercon The oopsied knight from bones 2 whose hands are missing and/or on the wrong arms. I fixed that; these are also from the bones conversion class.

    There were comments? Was this on the Kickstarter? In minor news, I appear to have ruined some spider's day yesterday afternoon. I suspect it was curled up in my right coat sleeve and had to make an escape when I pulled the coat on. By the time I got back from my errand I had two tiny itchy blisters about a centimeter apart on my right wrist, and this morning they are angry, hard little yellow itchy bump clusters with a bit of warm bruisiness around them. The comments were on Ary's post to Reapers Facebook page asking if the forums were down for everyone or if the issue was on her end. 300+ comments on a single post, it became the temporary replacement randomness thread, Bryan even commented to let us know they were aware of the issue and working on it.

    Yes, it was me all along! And I'll do it again unless ALL my demands are met! Demand 1: Bryan must tell all employees over the PA that "Buglips is awesome and we all love him of our own free wiil." Demand 2: Three badly expired anchovie and garlic pizzas must be delivered to 34-45-21 N 78-23-32 W by 0430 Monday with no armed escort. Demand 3: I shall henceforth, notwithstanding the conditions of D.1, be known as... "His Royal Buttness"

    My first evening of freedom (wasn't done until after four, so not like it was an whole afternoon) found me: Vacuuming the leaves (got 1/2 the backyard done) Hitting Costco for Halloween treats, things to BBQ tomorrow for board games, and bacholer survival food Watching 3 YouTube videos of my own volition Continuing to unpack the paint area And... playing some baldurs gate. Probably should have been lane and just went to bed at 11. But it's my first weekend of freedom. (I dont have 15 million tasks that should be done, but don't have the time to do them, hanging over my head. It hasn't really hit me yet, I still feel like I'm 'getting away with something' because I'm spending time doing chores and other productive stuff that isn't the pile of work that was ever re-generating for the last 3ish years. It was like it seriously had a ring of regeneration. I just want to keep being productive at least at some level and not get sucked into the quagmire of not getting anything done even if I do have full weekends to myself every weekend. I feel like I took them for granted in the past) Of course, stuff had to blow up and force my husband to move up his trip to Spain from December to hours before I finished. Well I'll just have to show how much I've appreciated all he has done for me by doing all the chores he was forced to take on 100% while I was busy.

    Gotta say, though, the impromptu facebook randomness thread was kinda fun. But I am quite glad the forums are back! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    It was a battle Royal I say.. A mighty wack, a feint to dislodge the bow arm..clack it fell to the desk. A quick and mighty swipe, and in one motion it was held back in place. One tedious suspenseful minute passed, I let go, and instantly the bow arm lay before me again !!! &*%&$## (Deleted)...Let bow and arm dry, file off dried glue! ...tweezers, green stuff mini ball rolled and prepared..attach to both arm spaces....Superglue (Tada), and finally.. the two booger armed Male Ranger with bow is drying ! I have the sword to attach, and most of the base to remove. I'll wait for after the base pins to attach his sword. It'll only get bent in the prep process. This has been one of those MAJOR pain miniatures. Its exquisite, but so very delicate!

    Ahh... Kickstarter would explain it. As a non-backer (only cause I didn't know) I had no access to that. I looked on SpaceBook and found nothing. Couldn't find any active Hangouts from previous links. I had a sad. And then I imagined it from Bryan's perspective... 92 hour week, sort of a couple days off. Getting ready for the weekend and BAM! SQL corruption... So much sympathy for that. So much... For me that would mean calling across campus to the cold room where my servers live and coordinating a restore from backup while diving into server logs. If I lost a few edits, no big deal. I do not have rampant animals tromping through a forum on my server. I was very surprised that a lot of content was not lost. Heck, even the post I was editing at 2:29 pm was actually edited prior to the server crashing fully and it looks like no data was lost. Color me impressed! How do we send bacon to Bryan and the web team?!?

    Am now awake. For a certain value of awake. Now to get moving and drive to NH to help my folks clear some stuff from the attic. I know I'll be coming home with at least a camp cot and my great grand fathers bible boxes. I'll have to see what else we can find.

    Was going to post this earlier, but the forums went down right as I tried. Thanks, we do too! :) *sends hugs and warm brownies* I knooooow, those awful little thoughts are so mean! I'm glad you're getting better at acknowledging them as the lies that they are. You are such an awesome arty bright spark of joy, and your lovely talents are loved and wanted and appreciated! I've never been very good at listening when people tell me not to do things, but I'll try not to cheerlead too much. I'll just simply state that I miss you and I wish that we didn't have some things in common and I absolutely adore you in every way. You were exactly the amazing ray of light in person that I always envisioned you to be, so just remember that shadows come and go but I assure you that every single person that knows you on this forum, whether they've gotten to meet you in person or not, absolutely sees that light. There are so many things about you that are special and amazing and I hope that one day it's as simple as blinking for you to send those bad brain thoughts away. <3 Also everything Guindy said. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D

    I suspect that enough of us either are directly involved in, or live with someone who does, computer type work; we know it takes as long as it takes. And in the meantime, we have the means to communicate, so .. we do. About everything and nothing, all at once. ^^

    Alton Brown has a candy corn recipe! I wanna try it. The good candy corn has that unique texture without tasting like you're eating a candle.... - Also.... Frands....! Such good friends here. ;A; While I did not need the cheerleading, I greatly appreciated it. On my high days, I really do feel like my brain would explode if I didn't write all my ideas down, haha! I think the part that frustrates me is that what I see in my head doesn't translate well on paper. We'll see how sculpting works.... Just gotta practice! I'm putting my contract job on hold for now. We've been working hard to save money, and this should give me about 10 hours a week back, which I can dedicate to practicing art!!

    Bible boxes?? That sounds potentially interesting...They are basically chests with my great grandfather's name stenciled in them. He used to have a traveling ministry and they are what he would ship his supply of bibles in. I am now going through boxes of old books. Two paper bags of illustrated classics from Books INC Boston and New York. Far as I can tell those were printed in 1940, though there is no copyright info. I have also come across a book titled "The Wife" from 1804. It appears to be some sort of marriage advice book. It was printed without the letter S; they use the letter F in its place. I believe that a great many of these books will be coming home with me.

    Pardon me, your Royal Buttness, but don't those demands seem kind of tame? I would have thought you would be asking for a lifetime supply of Bryan's shoes and a special production run of every paint line and color Reaper ever produced. I'm villainous, but not greedy. Well, not this time. And anyway it's like Destro always says: "Reasonable demands get reasonable compliance." This is why now I ransom rich people during the holidays in exchange for toys to distribute to small children. Which is a stark reversal from my previous gross misunderstanding of how Toys For Tots works. Imagine my face when I found out a busload of children couldn't even get me a LEGO Star Destroyer. And THEN they made me give all the tots back to more or less their rightful owners. First year The Grinch ever won our holiday decorating contest, because I was so busy that fuzzy green catskritch had all the freakin time in the world and I couldn't even get a tree and had to settle for a festively spraypainted fake palm tree I looted out of an abandoned mall. This is why I keep my demands simple.

    Good luck!I'll take the blame. As most likely it was this thread that broke it if anything did (unless something was happening with the bees that I can't see... nor want to...), but I know I was editing at 2:29 pm (which was successful by the way) and I haven't seen any evidence of activity later than that in this sub-set of the forums, so ergo, it was me. The flogging shall commence at high noon. I'll wear my boots and bring some leather to chew on. I thought the official scapegoblin did it. He had been absent from the random thread for weeks but he popped in yesterday morning and it crashed that very afternoon...

    1) you continued to type notes, so yay victory! 2) one of the allegories I use is this: in depression the brain becomes like driving on an old country road, with deep deep wheel ruts. Those ruts guide you wheels and make steering in any other direction difficult. But that's what needs to be done, grabbing the wheel and trying to go a different direction then those wheel ruts are taking you. 3) do you really think the world has enough minis? I don't, so please sculpt some more.

    Huzzah! They return! I was getting kinda bored. Also, Fritz Postal since return! Edit: back in September I bought what could probably be called GW's learn to paint kit. It's a kit that comes with 3 snap-fit space marines, 8 little teeny tiny pots of paint, and a brush. While the forums were down, I was going to try painting one up using the not-quite directions that they include on a lift flap on the box. Except that the paints fell victim to the curse of paint pots. Or at least the primer did. The blue base coat was still good, but I didn't check the others. But man, that primer was about a solid plastic plug with a puddle of water on it. There was no way to save it. I'm worried that the others will have fallen victim to the same, since they're such small amounts and everything, but at the same time I don't want to open them in case they haven't, because that would just speed it up by exposing them to air.

    Have you met us? We have a thread dedicated to the crap we just bought, and a whole forum for enabling each other to help launch more things through Kickstarter. There may be such a thing as "enough", or "plenty", but we surely have not found it yet. look, I have 'plenty' of figures, just not 'enough' Any game/sport/activity called 'curdling' definitely sounds very gobliny. We may have to play it next Reapercon (less than 12 months now guys!!!)

    So at lunch today my lovely Bride decided she wanted to rearrange the house (read as ME rearrange the house). It's my fault mostly. I asked her if she wanted to do the prep work on her Mousling heroes or if she wanted me to do the mold lines and cleaning. She has determined that she wants to learn how to do the prep work, but doesn't like sitting at the desk in the Den where all our hobby tables are. For now, it appears I get to do the following: 1) Move her hobby desk into the living room. 2) Setup her computer on her hobby desk, but leave it in the living room. 3) Setup her lamp and paint stuff on my old computer desk (with wheels) so she can do Hobby stuff while sitting on the couch. 4) Move the extra couch and love seat out of the living room and into the den. 5) Move the dog sleeping area from the Den to the small room between our bedroom and the den... 6) Move all of my clothes out of the small room so the dogs don't mess with them (or more likely the cats that hop the fence and then try to find something to climb). 7) Move my workbench into the living room (cause she won't do Hobby stuff unless I am in the same room doing Hobby stuff) The only real downside I see to this is that I will have to setup a push to talk or something for Google Hangouts as there will pretty much always be ambient noise moving into that room (she can always watch tv without me, just not hobby type stuff except for her coloring books when she relaxes in bed). Oh, and how much light my Daylight lamp produces on my work area... she really hasn't experienced that yet after I got it. So, yeah, busy weekend... plus all of the planned calculations for ZOMBIEFEST2016 (see previous comments or wait for the WIP).

    Candy Corn is odd in that it really is truth in advertising - corn syrup, corn starch, dye (possibly corn based). It's what happens when a mad scientist grows up in Nebraska.

    I was messing around with SC75 ink and reaper clears and here's where he's at. I think he's pretty close to being done. I'm going to seal him with gloss paint as I WANT shiny skin. Please tell me your thoughts.

    It looks like I'll be making them this afternoon, because timing. Really it's just cute little molds and tempered chocolate. We have little skull molds too.

    Yay, the forums are back! I missed you folks. There were comments? Was this on the Kickstarter? In minor news, I appear to have ruined some spider's day yesterday afternoon. I suspect it was curled up in my right coat sleeve and had to make an escape when I pulled the coat on. By the time I got back from my errand I had two tiny itchy blisters about a centimeter apart on my right wrist, and this morning they are angry, hard little yellow itchy bump clusters with a bit of warm bruisiness around them.
