    My niece recently found some of her Dads old D&D minis (don't know what they are) and she now is interested in painting them. Her mom and her are coming out for a short 3 day visit next week so I'm going to go through my paints and brushes to get a starter set together for her. I'm so excited.

    I painted this figure last year, but I like the model a lot and wanted to give her a different treatment. I chopped off most of her staff and stuck on the blade from one of Tiviel's daggers. I envisioned her as an evil druid, but I figure she's versatile enough to represent a number of classes in D&D.

    Decently, I s'pose. Got all the carpet and pad out of the living room. Attempted to chisel the tile out of the entry. Got two tiles done before headed out to Home Depot for an air hammer with chisels. Also picked up a scraper, some cement patch, and... I guess that was it. Ran the chisel through 4 tile before the compressor kicked on, then let it set for 5 minutes before another one minute stretch of four tiles. Rinse and repeat. Son was counting the tiles, and we are about nearly halfway done with breaking up the tile. Still need to move the front loading washer and dryer out, then dismantle the bathroom and break out the tile there. In between air chisel runs, there's the thinset to clean off the cement, so I kept busy today. Did resort to putting the fish tank (35 gallons) just on the floor of the living room. Even with nearly all the water removed, it was still too heavy for three of us to lift. The kitten is enjoying the easier view. Had really good Indian food for lunch, and sort of skipped dinner. Went out for frozen yogurt instead, after walking the dogs about an hour. Oh, and filled up the car without spewing gas down the side. Had the car at the dealership for about six hours getting recall repairs. It no longer spews! It makes me happy. Shower is done, and I'm dead tired. But, it does look like we might actually finish the remodel of the ground floor level of the house (1970s tri level) before the long weekend is over. That'll make the wife super happy. Should mention we have two "living rooms". One on the ground floor where the fish tank was, and another one level up, where the fish tank is. It's more or less at the same elevation as before.

    Example of the husband's humor: We are making dinner and We are discussing if the cheese has a rind that needs to be cut off. Out of the blue he says: "Did you hear about that new app?" and im suspicious but ask: "What app?" Him: "It's called Rinder, it's an app that hooks you up with the cheese that's right for you." and Im like: "so you swipe right if you're willing to try it, and left if you think it's nasty?"

    Actually, I'm quite glad I didn't join the Navy. At least I get overtime for working ridiculous hours.

    These are the Wizkids unpainted pre-primed Elf Sorceresses (SKU WZK72606). I painted these up in April, just got around to adding basing and taking photos. For the price I think they are great, but they are definitely not as nicely detailed as the renders. I decided to paint one up in a druidic color scheme. I had issues with her face, since the faces are true scale, not heroic. Not my best face, but its for tabletop, so it will do. Also her hand didn't have any finger definition, so I painted it as a knitted mitten.

    I think this is the first time I am showing off a miniature on this forum. I've been painting a couple years now and have done a several dozen minis, which I may share here at some point. I'm pleased how the photography turned out on Nuala taken with my iPhone 5. Nuala is a metal model from the Erainn kindred by Mierce Miniatures. She is the first of their models that I've painted. She still has a dagger that needs to be glued to her hip, I just wanted to photograph her before varnishing in case the colors change (and to document whether the colors change). She has such fine features, and my Series 7 brushes are finally starting to lose their sharp tips, I need new ones soon. I've done a number of Bones figures, but the only thing similar to Nuala's scale that I've done were a few models from Red Box Games. I must admit that I shamelessly stole lots of the color choices from MaGie's version of her. I find that copying great painters helps me learn. And yes her left eye being messed up bothers me, but I'm too nervous with my brushes to try to fix it. And in person with my less than perfect eyesight, I can't tell her eye is that bad. She's also the first figure I painted using the new Rathcore Grip from his Kickstarter. Those things are amazing.

    I feel that I should bring this to everyone's attention: https://www.google.ca/search?q=sazimai+blue+tarantula&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&sqi=2&ved=0ahUKEwjT5ZmYnOfUAhWi6oMKHVqVA1EQ_AUIBigB&biw=1680&bih=920

    I was never into parties as a youth. The closest I ever got was sometimes they were held on the first floor of the student union we gamed in on Saturday nights.

    OK, just saw these and thought you might enjoy them. Not the funniest thing I've ever seen but close enough to the truth I laughed a couple times.

    Nah, we're in Sicily now. My job doesn't change much based on what the ship is doing, I'm just kinda stuck in an endless series of watches anyway. Our schedules are... Byzantine. I was midnight to 4 AM (at sea) yesterday. We pulled into port that morning, and I went to day watch (arrival time of 1000 until 1600). Then we turned around to the midnight watch, which I'm now on (0000-0800). But all of this is on top of a clock change because of the one hour time difference between Crete and Sicily, and right after a busy work day where we replenished XX Navy ships for XX hours, on top of my watches - so, I did a 16 hour day, slept a couple hours, was up for 22 hours, slept an hour and a half, and now I'm back on again.

    Just hangin' out with a beagle in the kiddie pool. Not the beagle, mind you. No water either, but today is cool. Better pic.

    Now, I've done dioramas, and I've done scenic bases, and I've dressed up maps and suchlike, and I've certainly done terrain pieces... but up until now, I've never actually done a terrain BOARD. Durnit.

    This poor guy sat by my computer for years collecting dust only partially painted. He also had a reaction to my primer so he was slightly sticky. When I finally started on him again it was tricky to remove the dust bunny that had adopted him. Not a super paint job but I'm calling him done.

    Just been squishing on the squishy pillow for most of the day. He's really squishy. Come to think of it, nothing got done today. A whole day wasted. This makes me sad.

    Admiring my nails (teal holo, very rainbow), trying to shake a headache, and snickering (sorry! I giggled! The mental image was funny!) about cow troubles. Never been fond of cows. ^^; Hot wire might do you better than barbed; no animal much likes being zapped. Chickens will do that too; silly birds. They're safer - more or less - in the yard, but no, they have to go walkabout and get hit or eaten or ... *mutter*

    We got old. Sure. Every now and then I like to cut loose, but I find it far more enjoyable and refreshing to take my scissors out to my garden and cut all the spent heads off of my pansies. I guess that's what age does to you. Someone desperately wants to sit on my lap... but a computer is taking more of it.
