    New Mushrooms on the Block

    Neat! I like what you are using for the eyes there as well, should be fun to watch them progress.

    Getting to Know You, June 2018

    I'm still enough of a newbie that it's all new to me. ;) My main need is to just paint more honestly as finding time is the biggest challenge. That said, I do want to try osl at some point. Won't be this weekend though as none of my current projects have a need for it. Soon though!

    An appeal for civilty

    Well said @Chaoswolf. I haven't been around as much lately for a variety of reasons (mainly because they've finally blocked the site at work :( ) but I have to agree with the sentiment that this is a really great, and encouraging community. There are not many places on the net where a painter of my meager skills would feel comfortable showing off his work and seeking advice from others. Being able to discuss other topics is just icing on the cake. At any rate, hopefully this is just a blip in the radar so to speak and everything goes back to normal.

    I follow Ghool's Painting Tips as he does a pretty good job (imho) of explaining things in a pretty easy fashion for newbies (which I most certainly still am) and he's pretty responsive to his videos and on Patreon. I also use to watch Painting with Menoth John because he was just very entertaining most of the time, but unfortunately he has pretty much retired the channel. Other than that its just more of an occasional viewing of a tutorial or similar but nothing regular.

    @Glitterwolf already took my first answer, but as others have said there are plenty of options, so the first one that comes to mind would also be from Star Trek and it would be the Transporter. Not having to actually drive to the beach, in-laws, work, etc., would be a huge plus. The other option would be a 72 hour day each day while still only having to work roughly 8 hours a day. That would almost give me enough time to engage in all the recreational activities that I want to.

    Kristof65's new painting/gaming area

    Really nice setup. The wall mounted racks is a great idea.

    Awesome job, I love the colors!

    Atoning Unifex from Julian May's Galactic Milieu trilogy. As for me, I'd like to think I'd be a wise ruler but I'd probably make a huge mess of things.

    New Mushrooms on the Block

    I see the show as "Alice in Wonderland meets Willy Wonka". Which is to say . . . Awesome! I really can't get enough of these, even if they at times make me think I ate too many of their cousins, or maybe because of it.

    Dwarven Forge KS5 Back to the dungeon

    Unfortunately I had to change to "single shipment" for mine because I just moved last week and at the time I had to make the decision, I wasn't sure which house I'd be in when they started to ship (being as how closing dates can easily get messed up and all). So a few more weeks for me sadly, but that just gives me time to paint other things! :)
  15. I agree with this sentiment. I think the price point is fair (and hey, that new super saver is extra nice), it was more of a "for my purposes, its a bit steep." I'd be using this most likely for Pathfinder/D&D games which means that it would come out maybe a handful of times per campaign (which with my groups tend to last several years). Just not enough use to justify it for me personally. Now, if I were hosting a table top wargame night regularly, I'd be all over these.

    Depends on how much ipecac it consumed prior to, or during, the act of chucking wood.
  17. Indeed, I was using the dining room table before, which meant whenever we had company over for dinner, I had to pack everything away as it was the only table we had (ate at the island when it was just the two of us). It's going to take me well over a year to get everything I want in it I'm sure -- of course, that's partly because I will no doubt be buying other stuff like minis, paints, brushes, etc., but I digress. The solution is simple. Move to a new home, one that has a giant space for said office/hobby room/man cave. Like say, a full basement of a ranch. Its still just one room right?
  18. Thanks! Its been a pain not being able to enjoy any hobby time the last couple of months, but is paying off now. As for the boxes, they were actually all in the garage (right side of the photo) but we did manage to get them all in and (mostly) unpacked in just about a week. It helped that Mrs. Gargs and I both had the week off! :)
  19. I do definitely like the look of these pieces, but will probably pass. Main issue is that the price (while fair) is still more than I want to pay for just a handful of pieces that may or may not see decent use. Unfortunately, while I do have a couple of tabletop wargames that I play, it is rarely played at my house, so the terrain is not needed as much. I'm more likely to use the terrain for my rpg group but that's where the price of the bridge pieces becomes a bit high since I wouldn't be using it often (i.e. not every encounter can have a bridge in it). As for the lack of a grid, I think the unpainted option can potentially remedy this with some careful painting. The irony of course is that I would probably pick up a bridge piece as an add-on to a larger terrain set if I felt I could use the larger set in enough games.
  20. Most recently played Witch of Salem. For the wife and I its pretty fun (Cthullu-based game). Its not the deepest game around but suits Mrs. Gargs' pace pretty well. We will be getting into Pandemic Legacy again this weekend (most likely). Haven't quite finished Season 1 of that and have the second season to play as well (actually two copies of the second season). On a side note: Great topic as this gives me some games to use to try to get the wife to game more! :)

    Warhammer diorama (Pic heavy)

    Very nice concept. I've never gotten into Warhammer myself, but I have to admit the sculpts are quite beautiful. This should be very fun to watch.

    Frequently just from my games. The games dictate what I want to paint/acquire. Sometimes movies or books will give me some inspiration and I will try to reflect that in the paint job, but frankly, I'm still at the stage of trying to get just a halfway decent paintjob in place with or without any kind of reference. Freehand work, which could really help sell an inspiration, is pretty much right out at the moment giving my terrible drawing ability.
  23. Just over a week late in posting this, but I've been a wee bit busy. Anyway, just got this roughly 1610 mm scale ranch last week: Sir Forescale is included for scale (seriously, he's in there). The base is a mix of a realistic static grass, concrete, rocks and other very natural looking flocking. "Uhhh, a little help please!" Fortunately it came assembled and painted because a) That would have been one heck of a lot of super glue and b) I'd need a slightly bigger brush than my standard #2. ;) Best of all though, it came with a completely upgradeable hobby room! (though sadly lacking most of the upgrades). Hobby Room: First of the upgrades should arrive tomorrow, a second lighted magnifying lamp. As you can see though, plenty more are warranted, including a decent chair for hobby time. That though is a much larger project for a later time I'm afraid. :(
  24. If I've learned anything from InGen, its that you always need MOAR DINOSAURS!
