    Getting To Know You August

    OK: Not technically a bug but a red-back is a lethally venomous spider I was bitten by a red-back spider in the car on the way home from school. My mum refused to believe it was a red-back, as the spider was too orange. I demanded she drive me to the hospital so she slapped me because i was being “hysterical”. We got home and I packed my arm in ice, I could feel the venom going up towards my heart and it burned. My dad got home, about one hour after we had, and my Mum told him the story and he said “oh yeah that would have been a red-back”, my mum was horrified and said “oh no! We’ll have to take her to the hospital”, my dad responded with “well, she’s not doing too badly, I think she’ll be fine.” I still guilt trip my parents with this story. They are normally incredibly caring and nice.

    My Super Power

    I call this power tetrising. It's definitely not my superpower though I regularly attempt to tetris my freezer. I was once dubbed deathhand by work colleagues because of my ability as a tester to get anything to fail. But I do also have to give a special mention to my contortion like powers which enabled me to crawl halfway through a very small pet door, reach up and unlock the door so I could get into my house on Monday. My flaw balances out the mum-like superpower of knowing where every item in the house is whenever anyone asks, even if I didn't know before they asked. It has to do with leaving half drunk cups of tea all over the house in strange spots.

    Critical Role official miniatures from Steamforged Games

    Campaign 2 is my usual "painting" music. Although I do need to learn to be more careful, if something dramatic happens I tend to suddenly turn towards the tablet/phone I have it running on, my fire snake ended up with an unexpected white stripe that I had to fix as a result. :D In any case, I'm in on this one too.

    June Hobby GOALS!!!!!!

    OK, so I have a few carried over from last month, but it feels like I got slowed down by some things that were important to learn/improve (eyes, and basing), so I did a few things not on my list because I wanted to improve my skills. I'm going to try to split my list into figures I need done and what I want to work on while doing those figures. Hobgoblins (2) Bugbears (2) Maybe do the 2nd frog Put a seal on everything destined for the gaming table (weather dependent) Things I want to improve on this month Highlights Shadows Blending Eyes
  7. The layered dice sets seem to have 3 or 4 colours, the ethereal seem to cut that to two, you can see the colours in the bar under the stretch goals pictures. So yeah ethereal kraken drops the green and dark green and goes with a teal and a darker blue colour for the ethereal.
  8. Painting Guide is up and it is fantastic. I just have one teeny issue. On page two when listing the blue colors "Oceanic Blue" is listed as code 9415, I think it should probably be 9418.
  9. My Wraiths finished up their holiday in Athens and arrived this morning. They brought a few friends and some paint with them so I'm very happy.
  10. So I put an order in with Reaper on the 2nd of May. I've done at least one order each month. The one that took the longest to arrive took about 2 and a half weeks. Most of them arrived pretty quickly (two weeks or less). The tracker says something about leaving an exchange. I don't know if that's supposed to be customs or Australia post. So my question to other Aussie forum members is, at what point do I panic and try to track this down, cause I'm starting to get nervous.

    Post to Australia: How long is too long?

    So it appears that my tracking number works for Australia Post (sometimes if you try it too early it just doesn't work) and the item is on its way. If I don't have it in a few weeks I'll lodge a missing item form with them. Let me tell you all about the corrupting influence of the Wraiths. It would seem that they weren't keen on the weather in Sydney and after arriving via Dubai they immediately corrupted the other minis in the package and convinced them to holiday for a while in Greece. (This part isn't completely a joke the AusPost tracker clearly shows them departing Sydney and then being processed in Athens) in in the meantime thankyou everyone for your responses. They have put my mind at ease. Now I just have to figure out how to do a conversion/paint for a wraith on a Mediterranean beach.

    Thanks guys. I feel a lot better about it now
  13. My list of things to do in May is based on getting a bunch of stuff done for the Halfling Hack’n’Slash game I am running which was supposed to be a one-shot but has somehow continued on. This looks like a lot but most of the things listed for finishing are well over halfway through. Finish up Kobolds (6) Finish Troll (1) Finish Killer Frogs (1/2) Finish up humanoid NPC’s (3) Hope the weather behaves and put a sealing coat on everything destined for the gaming table. (1/2), (got a day where I sealed everything but now the troll and the kobolds need to be sealed too.) Paint up a Cobra as a Fire Snake (1) Paint up some hobgoblins (2) Paint up some bugbears (2) If there is any time to spare start on some extra goblins.
