  1. Are you going to leave the wings unglued until closer to the deadline, or glue everything and then upgrade the painting? You're making great progress, by the way!
  2. I decided to try and plan ahead on my Savage Tide campaign since the next chapter requires more than just a bunch of random thugs. I feel like I'm late to the party, though, because a lot of blogs and whatnot have links that go strange places. Like a link that was supposed to go to instructions on building a pirate ship went to a book on making bath bombs... While I'm sure that would be an interesting addition to the miniature situation, I'm not sure I want to get my minis wet. The next question is, will I actually have time to paint all these minis???
  3. This is why I love my Nexus card. All the background check stuff means we can take the short line through security. EDIT: And the page break makes this confusing. Was in response to Knarthex's airport security comment.
  4. It is also possible (though not likely) that it's your water that's got something odd in it. From time to time municipal water supplies require cleaning of the equipment and that can mess with your water a bit. Or even a bit of brush soap that's gotten into your water cup could be the culprit. I imagine adding surfactants anywhere in the process would make it easier to pull paint up. If your bottles of sealer are nearly empty or old, I have heard of people having issues. Especially if you didn't shake the bottle enough in the beginning, the ratio of different components (binder, matting agent, acrylic medium) can get thrown off.
  5. The brown and bronze look really great together! I need to paint more dragons instead of putting them off.
  6. Future has a lot of additives these days, you would be better off just using sealer or matte medium instead. Liquitex makes a decent sized bottle if you're wanting to buy in bulk.
  7. Bones I pretty much just use the x-acto. If it's got bigger problems than that, whatever, it's just Bones. Metal I use mostly just files and clippers. My junior high actually had a metal working shop and everyone had a few months of it as part of our elective sampler. So I'm pretty comfortable filing metal and it usually looks just fine under primer. I hate the thought of dulling the x-acto blade on the metal, so that is used very rarely.
  8. For the Reaper sealer, how well did you shake it? I've noticed Vallejo gloss tends to stay tacky so I've stopped using it. With Reaper's brush-on sometimes it settles and weird things happen if you don't shake it enough.

    Is it cute? I mean, it's got to be cute, too. I'm super curious who the last hidden chibi character is. It kinda looks like it might be another elf, so I'm thinking possibly a male elf ranger?
  10. Okay. Not-really-that-evil plan is in place. My motion-sensor sprinkler system is now activated. Now we wait for the neighbor to try and let their obnoxious dog poop in my yard. So very sick of cleaning up other people's poo.

    I was just sitting here, mulling over mouseling enemies and realized that owls are also an excellent candidate. Hmmm.... Well either way I still think the mouselings need a nemesis. Even if it's not part of this KS, eventually there should be something.
  12. We had just over 90%... (93%, I think?) Anyway, joined up with friends who had glasses and played with pinhole cameras and making shadows with our fingers and whatnot. Shared some glasses so we could peek at it. Got downright chilly for a few minutes around the maximum. It was perfect weather, which was really not a guarantee since we've had a lot of cloudy mornings lately. I kinda feel that northern lights are cooler. But that might be a northern Canadian bias.
  13. Oooooo! Pretty!

    I could say something witty and/or snarky but I think the answer is probably more simple and related to time zones.
  15. Someone else already posted pics, but I've been having issues with the KS constantly reloading on my phone. Need to remember to reboot my devices more often. Yay!! We've been seeing butterflies here, but I'm not sure that we're really on the monarch migration route. Probably not, actually. I console myself with the knowledge that bumblebees love my raspberry patch.
