    Oh wow, I'm so glad you showed us this, it looks great Love the cape and the way the tail looks through the resin.

    You must tell us the name of this book. No! You must not read aloud from the book!

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    Like most people here Elmore was my gateway artist. It is way too hard to choose just one but I’d like to throw a special mention out for three artists that I think are pretty spectacular and I haven’t seen mentioned (yet). Joma Cueto Jason DeBit (May need to look for jdillustrates) And Tess Fowler I’ll try to add some pictures a bit later when I figure out how to do spoiler tags and make the images reasonably sized and still make sure I’m crediting the artists properly.
  4. I got some things, picked up a few larger size paintbrushes (1 & 2) some basing materials, a nifty travel case and some grey spray primer. In a separate order I picked up the last of the reaper master series HD paints that I needed. Doesn't look like I will ever have arctic grey but I'm ok with this, really pleased to have managed to get as many as I did.

    I know exactly how you feel, I'm not a hugger, and I hate to even be touched. I was lucky and no one tried to touch me when I was pregnant. But this is the shirt I went with.

    It starts hot, then gradually gets colder, while I get distracted, depending on the amount left in the cup, I might finish it off even at ice coldness just for tidyness sake, now excuse me while I got hunt around the house for at least 5 missing mugs. (Yes I drink my tea in a mug) I found 7

    I got so used to rolling out of bed and off couches, that I did it fairly rapidly and that surprised more than one medical professional. The bit that got me was the constant kicking, right when I wanted to sleep, just kick, kick, kick, kick for a solid hour.

    I did the same. Jumped on it and then pretty quickly had second thoughts, shipping costs are very high for me, I don’t like the tubes, and it seemed like a pretty expensive way to try out these paints so I canceled.

  10. Yes, like many others I've been playing with the bones sets that launched at reapercon, I haven't used all the colours yet though, so there's still more to try.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Hmmm... I'm going to nominate epidemic or alternatively patient zero.
  12. So I went Christmas shopping with my Sister, 2 nieces, 1 nephew and my daughter...and I managed to live through all the crazy of trying to steer four kids through a shopping centre...and a car breakdown at McDonalds in between the shops and home, which required a rescue from my other half, I'm sure there's humor in that somewhere but I'll need a little distance. I do have one pretty funny moment where I took the three year old aside and asked her what she thought her Mum would like... so she shouted "Soggy Dog!" and I said ... no that's what you want... you have to think about something your Mum would like and give it to her, at which point she told me Santa was bringing it... hmmm... OK...
  13. Apologies for four-at-once. Last week at work before holidays and I've been super busy (damn you, stupid zombie cyclone!) Everquest. Sims 2. I did a lot of prep work for a challenge, added additional rules, kept track of family trees in a very detailed way. In the end I think I was enjoying the paperwork more than the game itself, and it got to be too much, so I stopped. I prefer an angel topper, but my daughter has vetoed me for the last two years, I expect we'll be using this topper for some time. Yes. I ordered so that I could get the Christmas Dragon Hoard, and I expect to pick up some more after the 17th. It's my very first Reaper Christmas
  14. Books are my addiction, I cannot put them down. If I start to read something I need to make sure that my life wont be adversely impacted by my staying up until 2am. I tend to only read on holidays (when I have time) and I try not to re-read books, it becomes a temptation to put the book down and grab the latest one from that author. I was going to answer nope, then I realised that my cooking isn't restricted to savory items... uh... yes, I'll snack on just about any sweet ingredients.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    Gosh I have so many of these, I guess one of the best is substituting baked beans for red kidney beans. I find that it just tastes nicer, I make no claims on the nutritional value of the substitution. Also dry packet soups, in particular the cream of chicken soup, work great to make a sauce for a chicken pie, chuck it in the frypan on top of the cooked chicken and veggies, add milk and water and let it thicken up before transferring to an oven safe dish that you cover in puff pastry (don't forget to poke a hole in the puff pastry). (OK so it's not really a pie, but it's delicious) and... freeze overripe bananas (peel them first) to use for smoothies or other cooking purposes later, also do not be like my other half and later confuse these for sausages, I'm telling you right now it doesn't end well for anyone.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    I'm conflicted on this one, I'm pretty sure that if it was a song I'd no longer be able to listen to it. Paintings other art? maybe I'm not sure. It would definitely kill a part of the experience for me. I feel like I could probably watch a TV show or a movie, but it would have to be something that I didn't go out of my way to view. Like others have mentioned I wouldn't want to be in a position where I was supporting them after finding out.

    Getting To Know Each Other, November 2018

    It depends on the type of brainweasel, I have different strategies for my own, sometimes zoning out (i.e. listening to music with headphones on and not interacting with anyone), sometimes throw myself into a computer game, sometimes cleaning. The other half has way more severe brainweasel attacks than I do so a lot of what I do is aimed at helping him recognise when he is under attack, and encouraging him to get out and exercise and socialise, both things that really help him. Ummm... someone gave me their parking spot along with a paid all day ticket once. I may place too high of a value on parking spots though. I *really* *really* like getting a park at work, not getting one means I have to get up and move my car every two hours because the next closest parking spots are too far away for me to walk to work. I did my job well at work today, and that's how I'm being kind. I'm not paid well for what I do and a large part of why I stick with the job is because it helps other people.
  19. Been waiting to pull the trigger on this one for a while, the Black Friday discounts while not huge was incentive enough. Not shown is an A4 size army painter cutting mat. I picked up the bushido miniatures at the same time to bulk up the order to get free shipping. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it.

    mmm we're in the process of getting our hot water system replaced too. Technically it broke over a week ago. Just lots of delays in getting the new system. The expense is annoying but little more than that at this point, kind of surprised it lasted as long as it has.

    Black Friday Deals

    On the not-mini side of things it looks like Kraken Dice is going to be doing a 4 day sale event. Looks pretty good to me.
  23. I got so excited then, for like two seconds...wrong Sibling even if it is capitalised.

    'Sleeping beauty'-esque scenic diorama

    You can make roses out of ribbons. I’m not sure that you could make them small enough for what you want to do here. https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/m.wikihow.com/Make-Folded-Ribbon-Roses%3famp=1
