    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    I have to disagree. It's nice to have you back, people are just busy/on vacation/getting ready for vacation. At least, that's what I'm doing. Because the universe knew that I wanted to have everything break when I was supposed to be getting ready for a relaxing family vacation.

    I don't know what everyone else was doing, I was busy sending "polite inquiries" to school district people, driving to Costco to find out they don't have tires in my vehicle size, trying to find books on Amazon, etc. It's been so much fun I'm going to go have a coffee break before I start breaking other things.

    Barnabus Frost - Bones version

    Since you've mentioned a few times having difficulty with adhesion, have you read this thread? The First Coat is the Difference has a lot of info, especially from Wren who did a lot of experiments and wrote the guide in the new Learn To Paint kits. Generally washing and a quick scumble with thinned brown liner solves adhesion issues without needing to invest in the HD or Bones paints (although they work fine too). I still prefer metal for anything people sized or smaller too, but I'm stuck with a lot of Bones to paint for monsters, etc. All your show-offs are looking good, so I hope you keep sharing!

    My complicated system of fans and timed opening and closing of windows generally helps, but is a lot of work. I swear, if it wasn't for the fact that I'm going to be away for 4 weeks this summer I'd have bought a portable AC unit. Next year I probably will get some sort of AC unit, each summer seems to set a new record for the amount of hot, dry weather here.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Back when I was a child, but old enough to buy my own candy, we spent a summer in Denmark where I discovered that one could get a very similar little plastic model inside Kinder eggs. For some bizarre reason I felt compelled to try and collect as many coach and horses as I could, even though I had no use for them. I now remember this as the first time I felt the need to buy tiny toys I didn't actually need just because they were cool. We all know where that led....

    Frost Giant 77544 DONE!

    Love everything about this giant! Just looking at him reminds me of being outside in -40 degree weather!

    A rice crispy treat and a cup of coffee probably doesn't count as a champion's breakfast. Was tasty, though. We visited GodOfCheese yesterday to hang out and paint, which was especially wonderful since their house has AC. And he makes yummy ribs. Slowly picking away at my rainbow dragon, it's the perfect project to take places since the paints involved are limited.

    So much this. I'm missing Rcon too, and the men of the house are going to be at PAX. Might be a good time for me to try out the hangouts for the first time.

    Attempts at polar painting

    I think that this is really the key... the color scheme you picked was super challenging and not as forgiving of tabletop techniques. It doesn't mean that your concept was bad, just that for it to look good you would have to spend more time on the shading & highlighting. Which can be a bridge too far when you need the pieces done for a game. (I myself am frequently guilty of coming up with cool ideas and then getting tired before I do all the work and just calling it 'done'.) I bet you learned a lot about painting white and you'll enjoy having them ready for you game. Which is plenty good in my books! Paint on!

    Anyone need a familiar?

    Pip is adorable, reminds me of my son's cat Lucy. Unfortunately we're all full on the cat front, but I hope someone can be found.

    Life comes at you fast.

    Actually a pretty decent theory, assuming that you'd sleep through the sound of the glass breaking. We had one shatter on our deck and it made quite a noise. Then you'd have a bunch of glass potentially magnifying the sun to start the fire. I'm downright shocked that the terraclips survived at all--I had assumed that the would have been easily damaged beyond repair. Good luck with a speedy re-build and generous insurance payments.

    We managed to have a nice-ish dinner and chocolate cake for the official day of my oldest daughter turning sixteen. It's amazing how much she grew up this past year. Was trying to work on the socks I'm knitting, but I got to the point where I needed to have some sort of marker to keep track of things, and I decided that it was time to just make some proper ones. I think painting is on hold until September, it's too hot and with no AC I've got a lot of fans on. Even with the wet palette my paint dries out too fast.
