  1. Fantastic! I love them all! And that turkey looks amazing!

    I keep reading that as "paradoxodonk" and it sounds like you're talking about some sort of logic-defying booty.

    Beautiful, yes. But I remember the Great Ice Storm of 1998. Took out some parts of Eastern Ontario for a few weeks, caused headaches in Quebec for a few months. We lost a ton of trees, too... 50%, maybe? (That's across the entire region. It was nuts.) So ice storms make me twitchy.

    I am doing decently well! Busy as heck, with my ex moving out this morning... Been doing lots of work getting ready for that, and been busy at work, etc, so not a lot of time to hop on here. But I finally have my house to myself (plus the kids half the time), my parents and brother even went and arranged a lot of stuff for me after my ex's stuff had been taken away, and after I get home tonight I'm off until Tuesday. Going to head down to the US to visit my girlfriend for the weekend... Been 8 weeks since my last visit, so this is going to be really nice. My local store has been great. I don't think I've been in since transitioning, but when I was in before they were always helpful but chill, and even had suggestions for what models and sets would work best for figures for D&D games and weren't remotely fazed by the idea that I don't play their games.
  5. I love the trees and the trolls. Totally different types of creatures but each magnificent in their own way. I get the feeling that spiders would be too obvious to be the real menace in these woods...

    Don't play warlord. I should probably acquire the rulebook at some point, but I already have a bunch of games I never play...

    Super quick paint job for these guys... My son wanted them for the Dragon Rampant army I'm painting him for Christmas, and I've still got a lot more to do so I everything I do in the next while is likely to be a bit rushed. Base coat was Vallejo Model Air, Armour Brown, then drybrushed heavily with Desert Stone, lightly with Dirty Bone, then a little more heavily again with Olive Drab. The Olive Drab doesn't really show up in the picture but it's pretty decent in person - not overpowering, just enough to make them look more like old trees.

    My life went very spectacularly and finally off the rails in early April 2016. Turns out I wasn't on a train in the first place though, but some kind of futuristic anti-gravity hovercraft thingie. Don't miss the rails one bit, even if I'm not quite sure how to fly this thing and have no clue where it's going.
  9. I'm never a fan of rats in my house, but I'm pretty sure one look at that thing and I'd just go ahead and set the whole place on fire and run away and never return. Beautiful work as always!
  10. Those are some delightfully spooky trees! I love the little monk tucked in there... Hard to tell if he's sitting like that because he's content or because he's trying to make himself small so the tree won't notice him. I always miss this place, and especially your world, when I disappear for a while. At least lately it's just been because I've been busy. And if I get down, I have your mushrooms sitting on the top shelf of my display cabinet to make me smile! I think the reason your world works so well is because you don't plan it all out ahead of time. You do a bit, wander away, come back and change some stuff or add some things, wander away again, etc. I think that's a big part of why it's such an organic, lively world.
  11. Caught up! I'm overwhelmed by all the wonderful things you've accomplished since my last visit and don't even know where to start. The mushrooms, the trees, the Monk, the Blight, the Witch's Hunters... I'm sure I've forgotten any number of things I wanted to mention. Your work is a real inspiration to me. Several times over the last few months I've thought about your incredible work and found the motivation to get more of my own work done. What always astounds me with your work is the depth of character and story in each piece. You don't just have a horde of goons, you have a collection of individuals with a range of attitudes and quirks that work together and enrich each other. You don't just have a bit of city, you have interconnected yet vastly different buildings that combine to tell a fascinating story. I admire and greatly appreciate your work, my friend! And I can't thank you enough for sharing all this beauty and wonder and charm (and creepiness) with us.

    FIFY OK, yeah, it's my girlfriend. But she's over 900km away.

    I'm online for a bit... May jump out suddenly later though, depending on whether a friend is available.

    Pfft, even I know better than that. ... now that I have a girlfriend in Ohio and therefore have had to learn some basic American geography in order to drive to her place.

    Now I'm curious what game this is. And I hope Thor takes your minds off things and your hubby gets better soon. For those of you I'm not friends with on Facebook (which is the majority of folks, looking at the people who've been posting lately) I had a bit of fun last weekend... My ex is still living with me, and Thursday night at about 2am I had to ask her to call me an ambulance because I was in so much pain. I have a high pain tolerance. Very high. I'm a baby for little scrapes and stuff, and for needles, but for any kind of real pain, it has to be pretty significant before I even notice it. So the ambulance came and took me to the hospital, and after some examination and an ultrasound the diagnosis was gallstone causing inflammation of the gallbladder. They got me in for surgery on Saturday afternoon, and I was home on Sunday morning. The pain's been nothing - unless something (like my daughter's head as she enthusiastically hugs me) thumps the actual incisions, I barely notice them - but from Tuesday to Thursday I was rather awfully dizzy. Seems to be mostly gone now. Definitely not a fan of that experience. Part of me finds the timing hysterical, because my ex is moving out in about 4 weeks. I'm not allowed to lift anything heavy for 4 weeks. "Sorry, can't help. Doctor's orders."
