    Mantic Terrain Crate

    I painted up a batch of crates and barrels. Used brown liner for some and black brush on primer for others. Both worked and the minis took paint really well but it’s a little time consuming to prime them that way so I think I’m gonna try a spray primer on a batch to test that too. Unpainted they look like chocolate! Makes me hungry. Someone should make D&D inspired chocolate.

    For new shows, I'll watch 2-3 at a time. For shows I've seen, I'll watch them again all day long, like background noise.

    Mantic Terrain Crate

    I just got mine. They delivered it, like 10 minutes ago! I love it! The cart was a little twisty but a hot water bath should work perfectly! The material feels nice and sturdy and I can’t wait to paint the comfy chair! the walls are a little short but really they’re to the scale they showed in the KS. It’s just shorter than I thought when it’s in my hand

    I have a few shelves on a bookcase in my office/now hobby area where all the minis are but most of them are just in a box at my DMs house. At the place I go most often - A high gravity stout and a bowl of spicy pulled pork ramen! At the other place I go most often, just whatever the new dark craft beer on tap is.

    That’s not a problem. That’s just good planning. ;)

    Argent is a big beefy dragon that looks very different than the other dragons. He’s unique! theres a giant CATFISH in the Dreadmere expansion! A catfish! A new (seemingly more detailed) plastic is being used for the expansions! You’d be one of the first to see it! The fan favorite expansion has Penguins! On sprues! And a zombie shark! You could get a tree of despair! And hang bodies from it. Sooooooooo creepy! Edit: I can’t believe I forgot about the Dragon turtle! Plus what every one else said.

    Drow Color Scheme for Waterdeep Drow

    I like it! I don’t think the purple shirt is too much. It’s a very different shade so it looks distinctive and separate. Also I love purple.

    Rebelling against my mother’s expectations got me all the way to a happy life so I’m gonna keep on going!

    Pokemon Go

    I play! There's a small group of us who work in Downtown Knoxville who get together for raids and stuff. Otherwise I probably would have stopped playing a while ago.

    I already know what's going to happen. Next paycheck, I'll *make" a decision. And I'll get another Darkreach, but then the pay check after that I'll worry I made the wrong decision, and the one after that, I'll lock in Lost Valley and just end up getting both.

    I think I have locked in all my purchases. With the extension of the PM, I am considering getting another Darkreach expansion, or maybe getting the Lost Valley expansion. It's mostly FOMO re Lost Valley. I can't imagine a scenario where I'll need dinos and cave orcs, but what if I do and I don't have them? On the other hand, all those mushrooms and an extra Fungal Queen!

    Stupidly, my brother and I used to "battle" with fireworks. The name escapes me right now. Not bottle rockets but similar. Inch wide tube about 12 inches long and it would shoot 5-6 streaks of fire works out of it? You were supposed to put them in a tube on the ground but we would hold them and shoot them at one another. We did this every summer and it was incredibly dumb. I got burned a lot. One year his pants caught on fire because there was one charge left but he thought it was empty and pointed it down near his feet. It turned out fine and at the time was hilarious but now as an adult, I'm just like, "where were my parents!" Also @Glitterwolf YIKES!!!!!

    How can it be half way thru the year!? Just last week it was February and I had plenty of time! I’ve got a few goals. Paint minis = going well! save money = not so well :( close some big cases = going pretty well!

    But the High Rollers would make perfect inspiration die markers, don't you think?

    I am really excited about Argent. I had no idea he'd be so big. Also Blacksting, I thought he'd be too big for me to manage but I actually think he is just the right size! Soooooo instead of being $58 away from completion, I am significantly more away. Good thing they extended the PM! Are all the expansion sets in the new plastic? including Lost Valley? Edited to add: I missed the first bit, when I logged on they were talking about why they extended the PM, but did they mention whether they were still on target for the delivery date?

    Well, I haven't really painted enough minis to have too many true disasters (but a lot of disappointments) but the closest I guess is trusting (or maybe not understanding) the label "preprimed." I was recently painting this large beetle creature for a underdark campaign and when it said preprimed, I just decided to paint like normal. The basecoat went on fine but when I applied a wash the paint started coming off as I was brushing the paint on. In little patches it went right down to the "preprimed" gray color. Ugh. Side note: In the future, should I take that preprimed coat off (simple green maybe?) and then apply my own primer?

    Lol. It's hard to watch Travis Willingham's face every time he rolls a beard check (and his poor face! every time it fails) for 40+ hours and not be ecstatic when Grog finally gets his beard!
