    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    I once watched a pirate movie. The end.

    Village Attacks from Grimlord Games

    When you get to traps (or if you just feel like opening the box) let me know if you have any issues with the "hanging" traps fitting on their stands. Only one of mine fit while the other three needed their opening to be expanded a bit. I managed to finish off the intro campaign today (scenarios 1-5). It is moderately fun by myself, but like most games would be more fun with other people to play with. Playing the game makes me tempted to paint some of the minis...

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    Enough random items for a few days. My possible disaster list is small. I usually have something that will suffice. A good chunk of 90s music has the potential, but I've heard the songs so many times that additional context would be needed for a bout of nostalgia to occur. With an infinite budget my fort would expand to take over the world, containing everything. Including an orbital elevator attached to a ring circling the earth, so I could gaze down at my wonder fort from space while still being in it. Thermonuclear weapons are a challenge to dodge.

    That was a decent size box. I'd somewhat forgotten what I'd backed for.

    Reapercon Sophie

    I had planned to pick up a Sophie, but at $20 I took a pass. Companies are free to charge what they they think a product is worth, just as I the consumer can say no it's not.

    September Hobby GOOOOOOOOOOOALS!

    And done... ish. I tried out a bit of an experiment on the base. Once it is set and there is no more color shift I'll probably have to touch it up a bit, but the mini itself is done.

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    I keep telling myself I'll make it one of these years, but I already know it won't be 2019. My job's holiday work schedule is on a 7 year rotation and next year I'll be working Labor Day. If you like 54mm+ (I like 54mm+) you might check Andrea or Pegaso. You may have to beat your wallet into submission for some of the 90mm stuff though.

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    A friend of mine in grad school, who was originally from Vietnam, had a perfectly normal English name. When I asked her how that came about she told me her given name was something to the effect of "little jade" in Vietnamese. When her parents came to the US and were being processed through the system the person doing their paperwork took one look at her name and informed them that "Bi'ch" (pronounced just how you think) was not going to work as a name for their daughter. Thus her new name was picked from a list and became her official name. Probably for the best. I can think of so many ways that would have been awkward for friends/coworkers, much less the easily offended stranger that feels the need to lecture about how you shouldn't call women a "Bi'ch."

    For the current month: Finish exchange mini - possible this weekend if I work on it. The obligatory clean paint area. This time around though its mostly put away paints I'm done with and get out what I need for the next project. Speaking of which, pull mini from shelf of shame and get back to work on it.

    I can't think of anything particularly weird, but I eat a variety of foods so maybe I'm losing track of what counts.

    Getting to Know You: Sept 2018

    Generally they are just proof that some people have been on drugs since the dawn of time. I was helping my parents figure out the camera feature on a smartphone and took a picture of one of their dogs. Given that I am capable of cooking more than one thing at once I'd have a variety of items.

    Getting To Know You August

    Old-fashioned depends on who you ask, but most of what I would have mentioned has already been covered. I like my electronic devices, but some of them were invented quite a while ago. I did some cub scouts when I was young and was decent at track before I got bored with running in a circle. I can't think of anything in particular. While I have had a couple of cars broken, they were deemed not my fault and covered by insurance. Nothing else I can think of had a value over $100. I guess this makes me not clumsy.

    I have no problems admitting what music I like and then subjecting other people to it.

    I can't say I planned to grow out of anything.

    Getting To Know You August

    At first I was going to go with the standard nerd tribe answer of people facing jobs, but upon a moments reflection I realized that I simply don't like those kind of jobs. Not liking something is different than being terrible, and when I have to do people stuff I do just fine. For example, while I never had a desire to be a teacher I was consistently one of the top rated teaching assistants while I was in grad school. Being in front of 20-200 people doesn't really get to me even if it's not my idea of fun. Instead I will go with skilled jobs that I have no training in. If the local hospital calls me up to perform emergency surgery it's not going to end well.

    It would be an interesting experience, but I don't anticipate anything affordable leaving even near-earth space for quite some time.

    Getting To Know You August

    I have enough trouble trying to remember the titles of songs I like, much less ones that I do not. Painting in broad strokes I tend to dislike songs with overly repetitive lyrics, digitized distortions in the vocals, lack of anything musical to accompany a basic beat, and people talking to me rhythmically instead of singing (as opposed to just talking over music).

    Recently it's been Honey Nut Cheerios, but I can eat most cereals.

    Getting To Know You August

    I'd go with the Reaper skull on one side and the various factions on the other. I'm sure there are a lot of Sophie fans out there, but I'm not much for mascots (or purchasing her mini most years for that matter). As for what it gets you, since I've got nothing reasonable, is a pull on the Reaper one-armed bandit. Prizes are varied, from minis, to swag, to old goblin gear. If you're not into used footwear hopefully you can find someone to trade with.
  21. I don't recall posting in this thread recently, so aside from yesterday's classified Reaper order I recently picked up a pack of 50 cheap little brushes. I don't know that I'll ever do a goblin challenge (currently the only eligible piece I own is the oversized Kaladrax) but at least I have the brushes. I'll likely paint a mini as a test piece later to see if the pain of using little brushes is worth it. I also ordered a plano tackle box to use as a carrying case. It holds 4 3700 trays and the top portion can fit goremaw size minis, which should cover most of my tabletop needs.

    2018 SUMMER EXCHANGE

    I waited for the August mini to come up, and have now placed an order.

    I rather like larger scale minis, but that's not really Reaper's thing so I'm content searching elsewhere for them. This I would like as well.

    While calling him a "favorite" would be a stretch, I'll admit to being curious as to what Robert Jordan would have done with Infinity of Heaven had he lived to write it.
