    2018 Secret Sophie

    Oops, my cart was just sitting there full of minis. Order now finalized.
  2. @Unruly The mist isn't just water, it has some type of noxious (but mostly harmless) chemical in it that you can taste/smell within seconds of being sprayed if you don't have a good seal. The vapors that employees could have potentially been exposed to were potent enough that one breath at high enough concentrations were enough to knock a person out. So when I say impressive I'm not really referring to your beard getting soaking wet, but the way in which you could immediately tell the seal was bad. You could shave for your art?
  3. I went and looked at the specs for the Master's spray booth and it listed a 4m3/min extraction rate, which my handy google converter tells me is 141ft3/min. I have worked in labs with hoods since last decade and with a lab hood I would feel comfortable working without a respirator at a face velocity of 141ft3/min. A few ideas as to why it's not working here: It's best case, without the filter. The working extraction rate is lower. It's listed as "extraction rate" rather than face velocity so they may be measuring the smaller opening at the back rather than at the much larger face. This could lead to a significantly lower flow rate where it counts than the specs would lead you to believe. The booth is angled rather than a flat face. This could induce vortexing and cause a partial blowback of material in the booth back into the room. If I ever get a booth I can probably borrow the meter from work and see what the actual face velocity is. As to beards... guys with beards fail fit test so anyone wearing respirators/SCBAs are required to be clean shaven. I've done fit tests the old way (spray mist) and it is impressive how easily the mist gets through without a good seal. Now they just hook you up via tube to a meter and let a computer check everything. What's the fun in that?
  4. I have been tempted by that as well, but I really want a tank and hate to buy something twice. The PlanTM, is to make a short list of wants and see what's happening on Black Friday. On a completely unrelated note, Singles Day sales have started. Most everything I'm seeing for our hobby is recasts (though I know of one legit sale) so let your conscience be your guide. The airbrush stuff I've seen so far has been Chinese brands and I don't know enough about them to make an informed decision. Mr. Badger said in one of his videos that nobody makes their own compressors, so some of this stuff could come from the same factory as what they use. It could also be completely worthless.

    Reaper HD paint label fading

    I once worked with lab equipment that would output a hardcopy of its results via thermal printer. I found the quality to be... variable. You could dig through files that were 5 years old and the printouts would be perfectly legible but you could also accidentally rub the numbers off something printed three days ago.

    2018 Secret Sophie

    In the tradition, a bit of a vague request. I'll have to look through the catalogue this weekend and see what there is to see.
  7. Minis arrived today, but I haven't had a chance to inventory. First impression of the minis themselves is good. EDIT: Looks like it's all there. Time to mark it as successfully completed.
  8. I was starting to wonder if this one was going to fund, but it looks like the final 48 hour push got it over the line. I decided I did not need one though, so I am not the lone unpainted backer.

    I will make a sandwich tomorrow and it will be good. There will be no pics though.
  10. I got hit up for shipping, so hopefully that means minis in the near future.
  11. Given I only backed one of the kickstarters, I took advantage of today's Bombshell Babes sale to acquire a few more. I paid full price for: 1 x 10025 - Tepeyollotla 1 x 60001 - Monkey First Mate 1 x 10043 - Eloise Covington 1 x 10046 - Gwynneth 1 x 10052 - Glacia the Winter Witch To get: 1 x 60017 - Pumpkin Pal $0.00 1 x 10033 - Autumn the Scarecrone $0.00 1 x 10014 - Victoriana $0.00 1 x 10050 - Celeste the Sorceress $0.00 A good balance of paid vs. FREE.

    Getting to Know Each Other, October 2018

    I generally play in your fairly standard RPG realm, which is to say a western set in a Renaissance culture which has been technologically impaired to medieval levels and magic/monsters thrown in without a bare minimum of thought as to this might alter the society and/or ecology. I also like JRPGs, which are as grounded in reality as many of the western ones. (That is to say, no culture rooted in reality takes all) City-wide trick-or-treat was last night, so my plans are to stay inside and do very little. That title never did quite make sense to me, but I figured it's not the worst one someone's come up with and just went with it. A few years later I was reading a translator note that said, "uhm I think this really should have been translated as 'The Attack Titan'" which to me aligns better with the story. Anyway, random item for the day.

    Grimlord Games - the Everrain

    I grabbed an early bird because it was there, but I need to check the game out a bit before I decide if I want to keep it.
  14. I got in on this one with a small(ish) pledge. PDFs are nice, but I still like physical copies of my books.

    While my Not Interested list is pretty long, Never is pretty definite. I mean, I have no interest in jumping from a speeding car but some day I might have a good reason to do so.
