  1. If he's anything like mine, I can assure you it won't. I had to clip the tab on mine, and shave it a lot to get it to fit, and even after that, it fit tight enough I'm not sure I will have to glue him ... No, I don't have pics. I keep forgetting those. ;p
  2. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    So far .. not so much. Although there is that 'I took bits of several miniatures and chopped hell out of them to make one' that I am ... well, technically, still working on, because Things Went Wrong. Don't think I have a picture of him handy, though. Other than that, I've modified several breastplates to no longer be boob-cups, turned a whole sword into a hot pepper, and built a couple of tower shields for characters that needed them.
  3. The Dryad Dice Tower & Tray

    Could always ask if he'd be willing to add a dice box option? Perhaps as a stretch goal.

    I'm a fan of shanghaiing a party and throwing them headfirst into trouble by means of Nefarious Tactics. Much more interesting than the traditional tavern setting. ^^; I started a group by putting them on the auction block and having one of the (minor!) villains purchase them and their gear... I also started a group by having them all hit over the head, stripped, blindfolded (and in the case of the magic users, gagged), and thrown in a ship's hold. First step: Free yourselves and get out! ... it went downhill from there. They did get out, though... I am a fan of tossing the party into jail cells with nothing but their underthings and seeing what they do to get themselves out. Dismantling the torture devices for spell components was rather clever...
  5. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Spiders are allowed outside. If they can avoid the chickens, and eat the bugs the chooks don't get, they're fine by me. Inside, they take their chances with me /and/ the cats. I'll relocate 'em, if I get to them first. If the cats find 'em? If they're lucky, the cats eat them. If not, I find them later, tattered and legless. I actually don't mind too much if they settle in the upper corners; cobwebs don't bother me much. If they're in my way though, out they go.
  6. How big are the bottles? I might have a use for moderately sized bottles.. >.> I mean, if they're teeny, I have teeny bottles already.
  7. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    And, we're friendly, and have multiple interests that aren't tiny resin or metal statues... ^^;
  8. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Er.. yes? I think I've got a knight and horse (Partha, lead... no idea what), and there is always ol' Takky, who needs to be stripped, primed and repaired, 'cause broken leg. Poor Takky. Oh. I think I also have some draconians that need finished. And possibly parts; I think I have a Sivak short his tail, poor bugger. But they're not immediately in my queue. One of these days..
  9. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I am up entirely too early, and functioning on five hours of sleep. It is a glorious day for SCIENCE! ... well, it's a glorious day, anyway. Who's got the bottle of magic smoke for the computers?
  10. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Jar of elbow grease? Or is that a tad /too/ old school?
  11. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Ahahahahaa! I don't get days off, unless the power goes for some reason, and then I usually spend it reminding myself why candles and oil lamps are usually considered 'cute accent pieces'. *sigh*
  12. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Because the weather gods hate us? Usually, we get promised no snow, or light snow, and end up with six inches to a foot of white doom that nobody knows how to drive in. Mr. Thorne has been surprised at least once with that...
  13. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Hrf. Well, let me see. Since I am not employed by the usual standards ... lemme look at what I /do/. Artist. Toxic art materials. Yes, if I don't want to accidentally kill myself. Same goes for making jewelry, with the added excitement of not stabbing myself with something sharp. Throw miniatures in and it's just crazy, man... Domestic Engineer (I wrangle a house full of humans and cats and a yard full of chickens): ... I don't have a manual for this, but evolving conditions force a certain amount of self-education to stay on top of things to keep everyone healthy. Cooking is a party that involves hot surfaces and objects and sharp things; and maintaining a certain level of cleanliness. I don't know about the web-design, mostly I just have to not trip copyright issues or offend someone inadvertently. The usual stuff.

    Step Twelve: Ever after, make a point of mentioning the laundry basket of issues that tend to result when attempting to run Linux without the necessary headspace for debugging, and the willingness and ability to spend a large number of hours debugging; assuming the software we use will work at all and we don't have to learn a new piece of software that might not actually do what we need it to do. I know there are people that like Linux, and can use some variant of it without issues. But please. For the love of our sanity, /stop suggesting Linux/ to Windows users! Chances are really really good that /we don't have the necessary skills to make it work/. All you do is make us angry, and want to throw computers at you. :/ I have a headache. I went to bed with this headache. I'm not sure how I slept.. *grumbleowmutter*
  15. C-EL DICE

    Provided they've absorbed enough charge to glow... I still want a set of the ones that glow blue; those are pretty regardless. No idea if I'll actually get any, though.
  16. Hot & Dangerous

    Me too, apparently. Whoops. Well, that DOES explain the wait. ^^; I'll .. yah, I'll just be over here. Eheh.
  17. ReaperCon 2018 Diorama????

    The reaper wyrmlings are only missing one type in Bones; I have the white one in metal. It would still be a pain in the whatsit to find a suitable body for them, though ... But! I wanna see this happen! It sounds awesome!
  18. Bases don't count. >.> Me, I acquired a fancypants new CPAP machine, with a heated hose (it's smart! It communicates with the main machine to maintain humidity! ... what the..), and a new mask! ... yes, I am one of those hose-faced mask-sleepers who stops breathing in their sleep for no good reason. ;p There /are/ worse things. Like not sleeping enough!
  19. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Blarf. Long day of medical appointments. I don't /like/ medical appointments, they take all the live-long day. On the other hand, I am now the bemused owner of an air hose that requires a manual (heated hose for a CPAP; it's very fancy). And a new setup, which I guess was a tad overdue... but I still hate medical appointments. Blarf.
  20. I only just shoved the box out the door... it's a little squashy, but should survive the trip, provided the box manglers don't eat it. ^^; Pictures later, when I have brains. We were all over hell and breakfast, and I'm still kind of dilated here.
  21. Box has been re-packed, taped to oblivion and shipped out, ETA is Monday.
  22. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Yup. That would be why I specified the undead minotaur who just came out. I ... suspect that will be of interest to somebody. >.>
  23. Pathfinder Version 2

    Characters like that are largely why Hero Labs saves my butt hardcore. And I still forget to turn things on or off ... but it's less of a brain explosion than it would be without it. But I am not going to make a judgment on the new edition until I actually see it in play. I've been withholding judgment on 5e, and still am, because I haven't actually /played it/. What I'm hearing though.. that implies that it works. I don't have even that much for PF2. So. .. eh. we'll see what happens.
  24. Getting to Know You, Mar 2018

    Reaper's Temple Dragon, painted as a gold wyrmling... Sometimes, the dragon was human ... and sometimes, she was a dragon, soaring over the battlefield, raining destruction and wing-smacks on her enemies. Fire was usually her last resort. (.. we actually have this happening in our Dragonlance campaign; the word 'oops' has not yet been spoken...)
  25. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    .. for the undead minotaur that just came out. I'm sure you can still find a Kaladrax. I did. >.>
