    NMM failure

    So on this note I thought I would share something I just discovered. The restaurant Chipotle. They have plastic spoons that are matte black. I’ve not seen these before so I thought I would share. Picture below.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Greetings my friends, Decent morning. I'm still not sure what exactly I'm doing this weekend. I am planning on seeing SOLO. Which I'm not even going to listen to movie critics. Geesh I dislike those guys and don't even get me started on rotten tomato. I do have a stack of cigars I may just go through that. LOL.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Ooooo Local conventions are great. They have a Alabama Con here (Pheonix Con, i think). I always try to avoid it so I don't spend money. LOL Hope you have a great time! I Think that might be it. Although as I look at this container I remember it being a brighter color like orange or yellow. Sounds like an interesting weekend to say the least. Sorry to hear about your grandmother.

    Random Request for help: Category: Snack food Similar to: Cheetos - I remember enjoying it in my teens and I wanted to try and find them and cant seem to. They are like cheetos but thinner and they came in a card board tube about twice the diameter of a pringles can but about 1/4 smaller in height.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    That's a great Idea. I think I may do the same thing. Art Museum around here would be nice to visit again. :) Woah, I must live under a rock. That's pretty cool! Sorry you have to work but I hope you find some enjoyment out of it.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Good morning all! Finally got some decent sleep. I feel decent. :D Big weekend coming up... not sure what I'll do. Friend of mine always invites me to the lake. Never went. Kind of sounds boring to be honest. I think I'll break out my new Miter saw and build something. What is everyone else thinking/planning of doing this weekend?

    03821: Half Orc Merchant

    03821: Half Orc Merchant I saw this guy and all I could think of was a random merchant walking between towns trying to stop you before you go to town and buy his wares. He might even have a quest or two at some point. The first photo is the base work I did on him. These is a VERY heavy miniature. I decided to keep him attached and just sculpt a base around his to blend. There will be grass and what not at the end which will blend things even better. I primed this chap then started working on his back pack and decided I should stop and do the face since it is usually the hardest point for me. It came out well and I may tweak it a be by the end. I wanted him to look like a "Fancy man" trying to get your attention and putting his best face forward to sell his wares. HA! The back pack coloration is inspired by the Legend of Zelda Breath of the wild treasure chest I saw online; dark brown with gold trim. Also in this picture you can see the rest of the base. I wanted to portray him possibly breaking over a direction sign (to the town) so you will ask him then he would offer his wares.

    03821: Half Orc Merchant

    I've been struggling with what I want to do for the center of his necklace... A carpenter here at work saw it and said, "a clock." After I calmed down from excitement, I decided I will attempt it and see how I like it. HAHAHA.

    03821: Half Orc Merchant

    Photo's not fully focused sorry. Worked on the base a bit and the shoes. ALSO, ordered a Pro Grass Box Static Grass Applicator by WWS. My plan is to flock this guy with spring/summer grass. The look for this guy is themed around, "before you enter town stop and see what I have."

    Weight Loss Support Thread

    We are in a "biggest Loser" challenge here at work and there is about 8 people doing it but only 3 of us actually working at it. I'm last in that group of three. Each week I'm re-calibrating to get better. This week is a push to re structure my food intake. Geesh-n-crackers this is hard. Everyday has been a struggle. I've finally become accustom to going to the gym. It really helps having a Pod cast to listen (Hello From the Magic Tavern). Now it's just a matter of food intake. It doesn't seem like it should be this much of a tax on my mind but it is. Learning to ways to adapt has been difficult to say the least. Anyway, thought I would share.

    So I found a good rhythm for my painting... I need to re calibrate cause I'm getting less sleep. LOL.
  20. Went to a new FLGS this weekend. Really nice on the inside with booths for eating and 3 really long standing tables for wargaming as well as RPG tables with comfy chairs. I really hope they do well. Their location is hit or miss and the city (the same one I live in) does not seem friendly to business. They Tax them out the butt and have all these rules. Makes me sick they would do that when the city has been on hard times for like 20 years now. Anyway, I meant to say, A guy there plays Star Wars Legion and gave me a super quick demo. I was impressed with it from the dice to the cards. It was a Fantasy Flight title you can tell. The only thing that bothered me was they switched to a 32mm scale. The models are more detailed and that's nice but I really wished they kept with the same scale as Imperial Assault.

    Hero-forge trio

    I've painted a set of HF miniatures. I did not enjoy painting them. I may give it a shot again some day. I want to buy the higher quality printing and see how that works.

    Priming without Obscuring Details

    I've had similar issues with other miniatures and on those area I had to apply multiple layers. I just use white paint and not ones label primer. Thin it down (use filtered water not tap) It only really needs a thin coat. An example is the miniature I'm working on now - Half-Orc Merchant. The layer is thin enough you can still kind of see the metal behind it. I've had no issues with painting on that surface. (picture example below). And as LittleBluBerry said wash your miniatures; drop of Dawn on a toothbrush with warm water.
