  1. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    Husband forwarded me the shipping conf. email. It looks like I'm getting both DVD sets that I ordered. We'll find out if that's true when it shows up.
  2. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I saw the 'Eavier Metal one, it's pretty intimidating to me. I shot off a message to Models Workshop about a new bingo card and they said that they would be getting one together, they've just been busy because of the snow.

    I think achievements would be great. I don't think I could do a buglips challenge though. Not for lack of not wanting to, just time and effort involved. I've seen a few but none of them have had anything I can actually accomplish for a bingo. Might need to look around some more.
  4. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    Shipping notice received.
  5. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I get spoilers for games I'm in, sometimes, because I paint.
  6. The Hobby Holder - A Better Way to Paint Miniatures

    Mine might be showing up today. Never got a notice but do have a package coming that I'm not sure what else it could be. Got a notice this morning that it shipped but it's probably still showing up today.
  7. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I joined a website for xbox that does that. I get a monthly update, though I haven't played in a while, with stats and achievements and the like. I have not.
  8. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I am awake. I do not wish to be so. I only slept for about 4 hours, long enough for my headache to go away but not long enough to want to be up. I may have a snack and then try to go back to bed, not sure yet.

    It is cold and as long as I don't have to go out in it I don't have issues with it. Good choice, it is a very nice museum.
  10. Adding on: Work through both LTPKs Work on gap filling skills Learn how to pin things Mid-month update: Finished last fish man mini Painted the NPC minis Started working on gap filling skills Picked Dagon back up and only have a few details and then touch ups and I'll be done with him. So far the year is going well and I'm having fun!
  11. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Two packages coming tomorrow. One is my poster and the other one may be my Hobby Holder that we backed. We know they are shipping but never got an email about it coming to us but that's the only thing we could be expecting (as far as we know). Not knowing where things ships from makes it hard to determine what it is.
  12. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    So maybe good news here. We have not received a shipping notice but through our informed deliver on USPS it says a shipping label has been created and it originates from where they are in Georgia. So I'm very hopeful at this point. Now let's see if I actually get /my/ stuff.
  13. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Played some Exalted 3rd yesterday. Split party member almost got murdered by fishmen until he parlayed with them and they let him go. The rest of the party got ominous mental readings by the leader of a pirate cove and it looks like we're off to break into a vault. Doesn't help that a defining part of my character is "do anything to solve mysteries." I had to be a detective.

    The Imperial March, it's what introduced Husband and myself as a couple at our wedding reception (along with walking under some lightsabers). Or the music I walked down the aisle to which the name of the song totally evades me currently. Husband informs me that it was Bittersweet Symphony.

    Here's a little bit clearer picture. Couldn't get a great angle but its clearer.
  16. Ellen Stone 80003

    I finished her. It's finished but not perfect. I could have messed around with things even further and cleaned her up a bit more. I really probably could have left her sitting for weeks trying to figure out what else to do which is when I decided it's done. Pretty happy with the eyes on this one. Also, the chaps were the first time I'd attempted to do distressed leather which I think look pretty good for a first attempt. Probably could have gotten clearer pictures but didn't want to fight with the phone any longer. ETA: C&C welcome.
  17. Thanks for this post. I've been on the fence about these. Especially since I just backed another type of minis holder on KS recently. But I can definitely see the use for this as I probably need new blutack and it's not easy to find around here.
  18. Sparrow paints Dagon

    Will get some more pictures of of things dry fitted together when I get home today. I will also hopefully, if it isn't too late, maybe finish him today. If not today then tomorrow.
  19. Sparrow paints Dagon

    I started painting Dagon a few days ago. He's very much still in the beginning stages. All my paints are MSP unless otherwise specified. Here's what I've done so far: Washed and blue liner-ed and started a base coat of Marine Teal. Then a little more work on the fins with Twilight Purple, Gem Purple, and Amethyst Purple but they have a long way to go still.
  20. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Forgot to make goals for Monday. I saw the prompt and then promptly forgot about it. I did get painting done though which would have been on my list. Didn't finish everything I wanted but did get some things that needed finishing finished.
  21. Ellen Stone 80003

    I will be at our gaming place today and will try to get a better picture, much more natural light there.
  22. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I don't even attempt to do fancy colored eyes. Just a layer of black, layer of white, then pupils, if you can call them that. The most decent eyes I have are on larger figures, like the giants for instance. Otherwise it's totally hit or miss. I like putting eye patches on some things for this reason. ETA: We have a planned six month time gap in the game between the last two sessions since this is the 3rd of 4 "seasons" that we will be doing. Apparently, one of the members decided to split the party during this time. I'll know more later.
  23. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I just painted (pretty bad) eyes on 12 minis. I will have to go and touch up the faces on almost all of them, good thing I made detailed notes. Thanks past me.
  24. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I was going to paint more but there is now a cat sleeping in the way. I don't have the heart to move her.
  25. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Got some painting done. I've almost finished Dagon's base. I dug deep through my bookmarks and found the tutorial I was looking for. The patina/verdigris(I'm really not sure which is correct terminology.) came out very nicely. I've got pics in my WIP thread. Now kind of stuck with where I want to go next. So close to being done though. I think. Also, I think I've decided I'm going to open an Etsy shop but I've got tons to do before I can actually open it but I am hopeful.
