    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    So .. there was a thread a while back in which someone had made a reflective mirror on a diorama using Tri-Art Liquid Mirror .. I loved the effect, so added it to my amazon wishlist. I have finally gotten around to getting it and now can't find the thread or how to make it come out as anything other than just 'shiny metal'.. Do I need to prep the surface more than just a primer coat for it to end up reflective? Or am I just plain doing it wrong? :D

    F-105 around age 12 here.. I didn't discover fantasy miniatures until I was in my 30's at a work based DnD group.. 15 years later, I actually painted that mini when my flgs had a changing ownership fire sale.. And now, here we are, with a giant backlog and Bones IV on the horizon.. Lol

    I joined to watch the train wrecks.. of which there have been surprisingly few (and I've not looked over there in a while :) ) FTFY .. and I'll limit my response to 'Patriot Act' lest things get buzzy :D

    You use that word 'continue' like the VA was caring for veterans before?? I have a friend who waited 3 years for her initial consult to validate her 100% service-related disabilities. I have another old friend who's father, a WWII vet, passed away from cancer while waiting for his initial consult (again, a several year wait).. Sorry if I come across as a bit jaded, but I find our VA administration to be an abomination and pray that I never need to rely on them for my own health care needs.

    True.. and it seems that the best deal 'starter system' comes with 2 brushes.. so I'll have 2 that can go up on evilbay - another Patriot 105 and a Model 350 - which, with a bit of luck, should bring my cost down to about $100 for a full system after selling those two.. Now to figure out where i can set up a spray booth (garage and basement are out during the winter and the current paint area in the master bedroom is probably a bad place to do that sort of thing as well)

    completely unrelated, but with 2 airbrushes (I got the Krome and Patriot 105 in last year's big sale) sitting under my desk, I really wish Badger sold a 'everything but the brush starter set' because with their current sale and extra discount code they mailed out today, it would be nice to grab a full setup, but I don't want to pick up a 3rd airbrush either..

    Given the mention of chocolate as the only acceptable form of caffeine I first read that as Hershey. My mind sometimes does its own editing and proof reading, with results that can be "interesting". GEM HAHA So did I!

    What does C&C mean (to you)?

    So.. this could be the old army dawg in me coming out, but I see 'command and control' when I see that.. of course, since my days, that's been replaced with c4i (because more is better! i.e. command, control, commucations, computers & intelligence) but that's a story for another day..
  10. Isn't he a little short for a stormtrooper conquistador?

    How to keep my 12 yo interested past character creation? Three campaigns in a row, he's been excited to start, only to lose interest after a session or two.. We've even asked what type of adventure he wants - ending up with Dragon Heist that will lead into a modified (for level) Out of the Abyss .. both of which he expressed interest in playing.
  13. They've never announced the other monthly Dwellers in News posts .. perhaps it's 07016 that'll be the monthly one? Especially as 07012 is marked in that post as a 12/17 release..
  14. Which makes me go immediately to this.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=joDqu8Gu70k Although, I think blush pink (which was the original roll) would have been a better pink for watermelon flesh.. Maybe I'll get ambitious and try to paint some seeds on the undersides of the wing membranes.. lol
  15. First 5 or so layers on the wing membranes.. I'm kind of feeling like green between scales clashes and makes it look like I just wasn't being thorough.. thoughts and opinions? The plan was to have the Brilliant Green in the cracks and crevices, most of him BCPink and use the Heather Blue for horns, spine tips and claws..
