    /ponders Not an expert per se in anything except well...no..not going there(my comment would probably get mod-batted)
  2. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    Blonde, and it pretty much just falls into place with a good head shake...usually a bit curly. When I worked in retail old ladies would ask what I did to it and I'd say "nothing."
  3. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    First ever mini I painted was a goblin...I forget the maker, but it was an atrocity. Proudest mini ever...I'm trying to figure one I'm really proud of since I'm pretty elfing critical of my work Why do I paint? Cause I don't look good in orange and the coffee in prison sucks.

    Does half-off chocolate show that joy still exists?
  5. CMON Rising Sun

    It arrived today. Then I got tracking a couple hours later.
  6. I'm kinda on time! Please see the main post here for rules, questions and general chatter, while using this thread to keep a list of links to your show-offs or show-off related comments in a single post: A reminder to please adhere to miniatures posting guidelines as usual. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78657-resolutionary-painting-challenge-2018-chatterquestions/ All the information you need should be here. Due to the revised format, there will be more than one bonus challenge available for this month. Including a "Hard mode" which Is some combination that may or may not have a source behind it. Your challenge is: 8! Bonus Challenge: The First! Frostbite: Considering the sheer cold that's gripping most of us as of this posting: Paint a mini that looks like they've been outside in the winter a little too long - snow in the hair, icicles on shields, etc. Have fun with it Bonus Challenge: The Second! Our annual challenge returns. February Fingerpaint! This is pretty self explanatory. Hard Mode Challenge! Pending... Good luck The game is made up and the points don't matter
  7. Polyhero Dice - Rogue Dice

    Maybe because D4s make enough of caltrops as is? I kinda like the 'bloody blade' dagger set.
  8. Polyhero Dice - Rogue Dice

    Just launched a tiny bit ago: The Lock & Pick is pretty intriguing.
  9. CMON Rising Sun

    Where I'm at . Still.
  10. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    I follow the local mlb team, but other than that it's kinda 'eh' The only sport I actively play, if you call it a sport - is the heavy combat. I used to do a few misc martial arts, volleyball, and baseball.
  11. SS package waiting to go out - still. I haven't had a chance to run to post office (on the plus side I'm getting a little OT at work)
  12. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    all I have to say
  13. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    CAD LFG XKCD I like acronyms, apparently.
  14. CMON Rising Sun

    I'm still waiting here in Ohio.
  15. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Trade secret.
  16. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Nothing really? Due to family circumstances with a coworker (the only one who knows part of my job) is out, so my schedule is all messed up.
  17. [MOD]Please use the full SKU and name of Reaper minis in the titles of your Show Off threads, per forum guidelines. You can find this information on the blister card or in the online store. I also like to give credit to the sculptor in a tag, so people can find their favorites. We have a high volume of posts generated from this challenge, which is great! But it's also creating a lot of work for the mods. Ladystorm has already urged folks to comply with these guidelines.[/MOD] As an experiment, this project has been moved to be a bi-monthly challenge last year, that seemed to have worked so until further notice that is our format. The longer time frame theoretically will give less stress to painting, and allow more complex jobs, and more sinister challenges. FAQ Reaper only? - No. If going on vacation, can I paint a mini(s) ahead to cover that time frame? - Yes. Are speed paints acceptable - Yes. Can it be a mini started previously? - Yes. Based or unbased? - Yes. Do minis for exchanges count? - Yes. NEW RULE - Size Equivilancy (This list is subject to change as bones 3 releases) Medium and smaller = 1 ea Simple Terrain (plain floors, walls) = 1ea Complex Terrain (http://www.reapermini.com/OnlineStore/Terrain/latest/03518 or such) = 2 ea Large (Giants and the like) = 2 ea Huge (Most dragons, Demon Minotaur Lord, etc) = 3 ea Bigger (Kally, Khanjirra, etc) = half of quota – rounded up Colossal ("Tianot,") = quota Due to the variable nature of a CAV I compare them against a generic 28mm figure and the Avatar large figure. I take height and bulk into considering if it is worth 1 or 2 figures. If it's not in this list, it counts as 1. If you have a question on the size, please post it here, and I'll address them individually. Much like last year, the idea is to help those of us that normally paint VERY little, to start painting more. You challenge begins...now! And Our Mantra: Participants: If your name is missing, or you believe your count is incorrect, please PM me. Please note: to make counts easier, you must post in the bi-monthly thread. The objective: To paint 52+ minis throughout the course of the year via bi-monthly quota (each bi-monthly thread will have the quota listed as well as the master list) What qualifies: Darn near anything! Reaper/non-reaper! Any material! Shelf of shame minis from ages long forgotten! Exchange minis! Speed paints! Armies! (Though I'd encourage perhaps something outside the army as well) Any Size! Based/unbased! Etc! (I think that covers everything) Jan/Feb: 8: http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/topic/78658-janfeb-rpchallenge/ March/April: 9: May/June: 9 July/August: 9: Sept/Oct: 8: Nov/Dec: 9: Again, I request that when tagging your posts, please use "RPChallenge" to help with locating minis from this.
  18. Polyhero Dice - Rogue Dice

    I should not be so entertained they're making a color "roguish rouge" for this set...but I am.
  19. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Would it surprise you that the sith has found an inconspicuous way to weaponize cookies?
  20. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Let's just say, my food hasn't killed anyone yet,but it has chipped a tooth or two. Namely aforementioned bar cookies.
  21. Happy Birthday Pcktlnt !!!

    Congrats on your level up! So...are you high enough to be a dire platypus yet?
  22. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Going to the comic book shop is always fun.
  23. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Finally decided to throw out the bar cookies I made...Granted, they had a deflection bonus vs slashing weapons, and could probably be used as a bludgeoning weapon in their own right.
  24. Dwarven Forge KS6 Return to the Caverns

    My wallet sees this and weeps.
  25. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018
