  1. Happy Birthday, Flamehawke!

    Happy Birthday!!!
  2. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    My darling husband has now managed to infect most of the family with this stupid cold. Wish I was napping.
  3. I spotted this one in a group shot of your vampire collection, it's a good choice. I especially love how you nailed the feel of the velvet, it's a tricky fabric in so many ways.
  4. 02645: Maria Roseblade - Savage Tide NPC

    The base was an opportunity to play with water effects, I sculpted around the existing base and made a sloping depression at the back. I painted it shades of blue to look like deepening water and then poured epoxy resin to fill it. (I have a large amount of epoxy resin that is supposed to only have a 1 year shelf life and I'm already past that so I'm trying to use it up.) I had kind of wanted to try and get something to make ripples with, but that was one of the extra touches that got shelved. I'm reasonably pleased with it as is, thanks for all the positive comments!
  5. 02645: Maria Roseblade - Savage Tide NPC

    I very rarely bother to do Show Offs of my work, partially because getting good pictures is a hassle and partially because my painting isn't all that amazing. But I'm trying to put together a collection of useful miniatures for the Savage Tide adventure path and this was one of the things I painted for it. It's supposed to be Harliss Javell, but I got a little carried away before I realized that she is not a recurring NPC. In the end I decided that I'd already spent way too much time on a single piece so any awesome reflections you see are likely the result of real light and are not paint. (The photos are actually a little bright, but I figured that was better than too dark.) I'm not going to give away too much description of the character since @Wise Kraken and @GodOfCheese are both players, but she's an imposing ship's captain of unknown reputation.

    Ibuprofen, ice packs and naps are my go-to when I get a root canal done. Okay, that's my go-to for most painful situations, but only because it works so well.

    My darling husband has shared his cold with me and two of the children. We are not amused. Sooo tired.

    Wish I could just get the foam... I have 4 of the boxes with the paint bottle foam, but it's more practical to store paint in a snap case. Plus the paint bottle foam gets rubbery goo all over the bottles. I honestly think Reaper could make a pretty penny selling those cases that were part of Bones 1. That's what we primarily use to transport monsters and NPCs, PCs live in a Feldherr mini case. But the Feldherr cases can be pretty affordable on Amazon sometimes, depending on how much storage you need.
  9. removing greenstuff

    I had a similar problem with one of my Happy Seppuku stamps. If you have a thin, pokey sculpting tool I'd use that first to gently scrape away some of the bigger chunks. Not sure if washing with dish soap and scrubbing with an old toothbrush would get off the residue, but it probably wouldn't hurt. I assume the greenstuff hasn't cured yet, it might not be possible to get it off once it's cured. That is the one plus to rubber stamps, flexing them tends to get dried stuff to fall off. Hopefully someone else will have some good advice.

    If you have greenstuff, I'd use that. They're supposed to have very good detail, might as well use a putty that can hold good detail. Wish they'd sort out how to sell me one of their pads. I figured last kickstarter that I'd wait for retail, but there isn't exactly retail available.

    <sigh> Just had to pick up the 10 year old from school early because she wasn't feeling well. Natural she vomits on the way home. So much for her concert tomorrow...

    Having only tried sample pre-gen characters at cons I wasn't really in a position to argue, but I'm glad they didn't cut one of the more appealing features added in 3rd edition. Probably still won't bother changing systems any time soon, but that's also because it's effort I'm not keen to put in.
  13. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Had a conversation with our son a few days ago and the thing he dislikes the most about 5e is the way you commit to a character concept and then you're locked in. Stories are more interesting when characters can change, and maybe they won't change, but that possibility creates that feeling of freedom. Anyway, I don't hate new editions, I just don't feel motivated to learn another new rule system right now.

    Hope you feel better soon, @Unruly. Mint tea is totally my favorite thing when I'm congested. Recently I discovered that I'd made it an entire year without needing a prescription for antibiotics, which is a huge improvement in my quality of life. Being sick sucks.

    So @Jasonator your suggestion for the turkey was bang on--everyone loved it and it was just citrusy enough. I lined the roasting pan with sliced oranges and stuffed with some diced oranges, thyme, garlic. Rubbed a little olive oil on it, seasoned with salt and pepper, poured a quarter cup of brandy in as well. Someone else brought colcannon, there was Irish soda bread, Guinness and mead. Best part was the party didn't all die! Which is pretty good considering we were all really injured and dealing with a black dragon. (The dragon flew away, we got the treasure it was locked up with anyway.)
