  1. The Dreadmere expansion is closely becoming more exciting then the core. A shame Chronoscope is being left to the dogs, I personally love the Chronoscope line and was quietly wishing for more. But Dreadmere? My goodness, they haven't skipped a beat on it. Heck that gulper alone might convince my co-worker to just pledge himself.
  2. Behold I am back! And with painted goodies to boot. I painted up a wolf.. not much else to say really... I will say this was one of my favorite animal projects to date. he is the first mini I actually put in a gaming base (1inch slotted) And the first base I decorated (Blizzard like conditions) Things that I will say, some of the colors were a bit challenging for me and caused some delay. To further that I painted the eyes 3 different times for preference. Oh, and about the eyes. When I first painted them I aimed to be as realistic as I could, I simply didn't have a paint color that looked right. I then decided to be crazy and paint his eyes with metallic gold with pupils. but the effect looked weird with the pupils; however I LOVE the effect. So I painted his eyes completely gold. From an angle the gold looks like the yellow a wolves eyes are supposed to be (or fairly close to it, as it lacks the green tint) But if you look right at him and the light hits it his eyes reflect the light and they glow and eerie yellow. They simply pop and give the illusion of a wolf at night. Lets show him off shall we? Pardon the blur on some or most the images, I am still working to set up my camera.. feel free to critique as you will. I'll only get better by being shown the brutal truth.. the snow effect on the wolf was a bit tricky, anyone have a better way of doing it? Does it look bad as it is? Either way here it is said and done and going to be shelved to display my first attempt at effects and basing. Hope you enjoy. P.S. as for the lack of hunter? I haven't painted her yet and might not, I am sadly not a huge fan of the sculpt (where the pieces join for her bow is going to be a pain beyond my current skill to join) and I bought the set specifically for the wolf so.... this wolf is awesome!
  3. PRELAUNCH

    .... There gonna be an early bird special? Any news on the exact time this is dropping so I can ensure myself a slot on said early bird special? I missed the party of bones 3 I won't be missing 4. I thought I might just go casual or even potentially have someone talk me out of it, but then I saw dragon turtle and my wallet burst into tears.
  4. You thought I was gone but behold, it is I, Slush! Sorry for the sudden absence. I'll try logging on tomorrow since I think even the ol' one is in bed now.
  5. I worked as a shop scrub for a trucking company my dad worked at. It was, in hindsight a good experience. what did I learn? I learned that leaving that job was a bad idea. Story time! I was raised a hard worker, it's just what I do, work fast, work hard, just get it done and be done with it. The position they offered me had pay quite a bit higher then minimum wage (at least good enough for a 16yr old) They offered me as many hours as I wanted to do my tasks. I did simple things, tend the landscape, do the annual washing of the office walls, tend the restroom, and once a week every semi needed washing, once a week the whole shop floor needed swept. All of that is easy work no issues. So the tasks didn't take long. After that they gave me free reign to the stocked company fridge and sat me in the breakroom with a newspaper or whatever I wanted. where I would sit and let time waste away waiting for another menial task to be done. And let me tell you I was aching for more. I knew I needed the hours, but I hated the sit around and doing nothing while being paid. I felt guilty doing so, like a waste of time and resources. So I abandoned the job for another. That's right ladies and gentlemen, I quit my first job because there wasn't enough work for my grubby little hands. Talk about a kick in the behind now that I am older and I understand the joys of doing the job fast and sitting on the clock. If only I had just brought my hobby stuff to work and entertained them with my silly conversation and activities and get paid for it.
  6. The states East of you feel your pain but thank you for your service in tanking the hail so the storm was all tired and weak as it passed by me.
  7. If a frog travels 1000 miles down the road at 15 hops per second, and an antelope watches him pass from a distance of 30m then does the cupcake stand still sell breadsticks on the dark side of the moon?
  8. And yet all the silly quizzes make me out as Slytherin.. i didn't even know what that means
  9. I agree but then again with wod or any white wolf material i find its best to ignore their more Canon notes.. i don't think they'd exist without people modifying their rules. The morality/humanity rules are the best example. A lot of their stuff feels less serious and more like suggestions and ideas
  10. Thanks @OneBoot that advice might help me these coming weeks on if i should wip a project i hope to throw in. Except i don't think I'll be at reapercon this year...
  11. No they were just tired of the cats tyranny over man and attempted to overthrow them. Which as we see today they have failed and domestic cats rule from the comfort of their litter boxes. Basically worshipped over all the lands and internets
  12. Missed the first 3 ;-; no storage ideas if i got them, and yeah boii bones 4 will make my wallet bleed... also idk if its a matter of having enough or just wanting to paint all the minis.. not like i use them for anything besides decoration
  13. Now all it needs is a killer desktop wallpaper and replacing that kickstart with some good ol fashion coffee and you'll be good to go.. looks nice and great deal on the office furniture!
  14. I do it too, I actually do it so often I even learned a few tricks. Such as, if you are planning on buying something in near future you can load the cart up and watch as some of the prices fluctuate the weeks/days prior to buying, which can be a game unto itself (if not a headache if you later learn something was on sale and you missed it cause responsible budgeting is hard) Or my other personal fave, "the price is right" shipping cost edition.. How much stuff can I load into my cart without making shipping go up, (for sites not offering free shipping) There is usually a sweet spot and finding it can save a lot of hassle with repeat spending. example: If I am ordering metal for jewelry from my prime supplier I know that the package can weigh no less then 13 pounds for it to be worth the hassle. So I need between 13 and 16 pounds of metal each order at a minimum. Or more recently with online brush shopping I found that the best deal is to buy at least 2 of the main brushes in case I broccoli a brush and not have to pay shipping to get the replacement (because I already bought its replacement and its right there) More expensive? yes, but it'll be my first time with a really good brush and there is a 75% chance it wont last for years like I am hoping. having 2 means I don;t need to let shipping costs scare me into being gentle with the first good brush, I can learn and destroy the first and baby the second. (be careful though... i think these companies know I do this and intentionally make these sweet spots in shipping just to beat my wallet harder... and its working.. is there a white mage in the house?)
  15. Woodchuck fur is a good brush for foundation, but dont ask how i know this
