  1. Welcome to the Department of Acquisitions! This is a continuation of the thread wherein we share pictures and stories of all the awesome stuff we acquire. Go forth, and leave no bargain unexplored! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  2. Here is the link to the official thread, which has the actual Hangout link: This is a just-for-fun thread, a place to put little snippets from Google Hangouts with forum members so that those who can't participate can still enjoy some of the fun. They need not make sense, but they DO still need to be family-friendly! This is also the place to put "Is anybody on right now?" type posts. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  3. Do you mean the TV show? If so, yes. Very much yes. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  4. Don't forget the very serious discussion about different types of pants and their varying importance, as well as how Hollywood is contributing to the heat death of the Universe. It really was a most amusing conversation. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  5. Looks good to me! So, after talking to a forumite who is familiar with RAFM shipping, it seems that ~2 weeks from shipping notice is not uncommon because customs. Since I just got the shipping notice a couple of days ago, looks like my placing a small order with Reaper will be happening shortly. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  6. *waves* Lots and lots of sympathy likes and hugs, friends; family drama is the worst kind of drama. I think I'm slowly starting to crawl out of the black hole I didn't even know I'd fallen into a couple of weeks ago. My first clue that I had a serious case of brain-eating weasels was when I realized that this past week I've been keeping the living areas of our apartment spotless. I've even been doing all of the dishes every night!! This may seem like an odd thing to be concerned about, but in the Boot household, a squeaky clean dwelling is a sure sign that OneBoot has an upset mind. The tidier, the worse it is. I deep-cleaned the oven the other day at 3am. I didn't realize it at first, since there wasn't anything immediately obvious that was depressing me, but after some self-reflection, I think it might be mostly follow-on distress from my uncle's passing, coupled with stress about ReaperCon stuff. I never did manage to process his loss properly, since as soon as I was notified, I had to tell all these peripheral people (to let them know I'd have to change plans / reschedule things) and deal with it all calm and logistically and factually, then again while I was home because my dad especially needed strong support. So I'm trying to give myself space right now to just focus on taking care of myself and MrBoot, which is helping. Going to the hangout for a bit last night helped too; I actually found myself getting some prep for my ReaperCon entry done since everyone else was working on stuff, plus the laughter was much needed. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  7. How long does shipping from RAFM usually take? I used their sale to purchase my third color (Mint Green), so I can't start until I have it. I ordered over a week ago, but haven't been given any indication that it's shipped or been given a tracking number, so I'm getting antsy. I'm considering either ordering a single bottle of paint from Reaper, or seeing if my FLGS has a Citadel paint that's a) close enough in color, and b) not dried up. I really want to get started!!! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. Sign me up! OneBoot / Current avatar / All the days! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  10. Woo, looking good so far!! I like how your terrain turned out, it looks very natural! Are you going for the traditional chromatic head colors? You can do it!!! Ma'al is a rough tough beastie, but you're rougher and tougher! Sock him in the jaws and kick him in the tail scales! :D Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  11. I eagerly await the unveiling of your cunning, clever plan! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  12. Wise decision. Ma'al is a serious beastie, and you'll want to be in top fighting condition when you enter the ring! As for attempting to do it in 5 days...dang. I see that the insanity is already beginning to set in. I salute you, sir, and wish you the very best of luck in this mad adventure! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  13. I laughed way, way too hard at this. And huzzah for your eye learning to identify (hues? shades? what's even the right word here) of paints and not being fooled by the colors themselves! Because Heather blue is so close to your midtone, you'll probably have to lean heavily on your white highlights to get the contast you're looking for. But I know you can do it!!! :D Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  14. I was planning on it, but MrBoot is now coming down with a milder version of the nasty cold I had last week and needed some TLC. I'm praying it doesn't mutate and hit me a second time, I'm still recovering from the first one! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. Not only is this BEAUTIFULLY painted, I LOVE the story your diorama tells! Excellent work indeed! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  16. You should upload him to the Inspiration Gallery once he's finished, he's absolutely stunning!!! The color balance, the highlighting, the face, it all looks very striking and awesome! Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  17. My totally not-medical opinion is that it might turn out to be tonsillitis. What you described is exactly what I've experienced the couple of times I've had it. In fact, the first time just felt like I had a piece of rice stuck back there at the beginning, then over the next day progressed to "oh gosh why does swallowing hurt so much?!" I lost a couple of pounds before I was better due to even drinking water hurting. If you use a flashlight to look at the back of your throat, is it red and unhappy-looking with white-ish patches over the tonsils? Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  18. I used about 2/3 of a bottle on mine, unthinned. Those little bottles go an astonishingly long way! Looking good so far! :D Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  19. Finally caught up again after far too long! I love wandering through your thread, every page is such a delightful, slightly terrifying treat! I saw the pictures before I read the text, so I was trying to figure out where the eyes were since they looked like big mushroom caps! Then I tried to imagine what a big mushroom base with a few smaller mushrooms on top would look like. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  20. Everyone's already said what I was going to, so I'll just add that for a lot of the blacks, the tint won't become really apparent until it's thinned. Sidenote: If you're looking for a brownish black, Walnut Brown is a nice choice. If you just want a straight black with no tint, go with Solid black (HD) or Pure black (MSP). I don't have any Citadel paints, so I don't know what tint it has, if any. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  21. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  22. My goals for September/October: 1) Tidy up Ma'al Drakar for ReaperCon 2) Paint up Kyphryxis for the Rainbow Dragon painting challenge 3) ??? 4) Profit Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  23. I can't even express how much I love seeing the sculpting process on a mini that I will eventually be able to own; I feel like I get to know the mini personally! So, thank you very much for sharing the magic that happens behind the scenes! :D Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  24. That poor fellow. I have a group of very good friends whose last name is Potter. They already know several names that they are never allowed to name their children. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  25. I switched to Imgur after Google first acquired and then killed Picasa web albums. I find the interface easy and intuitive to use, and it's simple to grab a URL to an individual picture and paste it into a thread here (which thanks to the new forum software causes the image to automatically generate). The only annoying part is the fact that it really wants you to use it as a social media platform, but if you just do a few tweaks of the notification settings and always remember to upload pictures as Private instead of Public, that's not a big deal. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
