    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Good point, and anyway it's not our fault the paints still wet, perhaps they should've stuck to 2 thin coats...

    No-one lean on the walls, paints still wet!

    Movies - Recently Watched or Plan to Watch Soon

    I saw Glass last night, I wish I'd had a chance to re-watch Unbreakable beforehand but it stands alone fairly well. I thought it was pretty good, I mean it's not like the Sixth Sense twist ending we know Mr. Shyamalan for but I did like it and find it super interesting- it's pretty long (2h10) and held my interest the entire time, which is hard for a film over 90 minutes lately in those uncomfortable seats!

    I too generally prefer cold drinks to hot drinks, except soup- soup is the best hot drink! That's okay, I think my post made it sound a lot blunter than it was- don't get me wrong it's still not nice but I wasn't a huge coffee addict anyway and the guy I cared for even less XD

    I think I’m a bit of a weird one with coffee, I do like it (black, like my heart) but a few years back a guy I was seeing said “you always have coffee breath” and I was so mortified, being thrown back to my school years and remembering that disgusting coffee-breathed teacher trope, that neither that relationship or my relationship with coffee lasted long after that. I will occasionally drink it, but it is not my life blood.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Good morning all, I see we’re all living on borrowed time here in floor-is-lava-land!

    You can also buy extra shelves as needed and those little pegs that hold the shelves are pennies online

    Okay, I’m going to the cinema now and when I come home I expect this thread to be thoroughly done and dusted ;)

    Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    I bought a cheap-ish electric toothbrush to make stripping minis easier as I'm massively preferring painting up the wizkids minis once the vallejo primer they're dipped in has been stripped off and a fresh, thin, coat has been applied... but it has one of those bathroom plug ends and it hadn't even occurred to me it would have that so I need to buy an adapter too as we don't have a bathroom plug socket in this flat. Has anyone used an electric toothbrush for this use?

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    Yeah this was me, when I was prepared for it to be July I put in my order, and treid not to think about it anymore... but then time passed... and then... "extended to September" and my brain went "Oh, you havent looked at that in a while, why not log on and just have a little look see if there's anything else..." £200 later...

    I really wanted to start playing d&d, I started running the 5E starter set and it wasn't too long of using a dice (the percentile dice from each players main set- obviously, what else would you use a percentile dice for) as each character on the map and other dice for enemies before that started to get confusing, and not particularly great to look at, I'd watched a lot of Critical Role and they used minis- so I thought "Cool! I'll do that" so OH promptly bought me a box of minis from this site called "Reaper" I'd heard so much about, where I promptly painted 3 miniatures, and realised they looked terrible. So I put them down for a year and barely picked up a brush at all in this time- though I was still acquiring minis, paints, (all the gear, no idea) and watching any youtube video on painting I could find, eventually I picked up the brush again and repeated my new mantra ("Quantity over Quality") with the idea that if I did lots, eventually some of them would start to look better, and low and behold- they did! Not by much, but I'm lucky to have players who are easily impressed!

    Exactly! I think they secretly like that I have parcels sent there rather than my house, as there's always someone to sign for things, and it gives me an excuse to turn up there and eat their cake (there's always cake there)

    I'll be in France for a few days mid-march, so I predict it will turn up (UK) while I'm away! 15th-17th, and then my shipping address is actually my parents house too so I'll get back into the country and be heading straight there if that's the case!

    Sign up to foster kittens with a local animal shelter! They never get older if you replace them every 8 weeks ;) Plus all food and vet supplies paid for* What more could you want? *well, that's the case with my organisation and 95% of others I've worked with

    Nope! I only did 1 year of A levels before I got a job and left- at the time I was mentally done with the education system or at least the school I was at, I have since done a handful of NVQs but no degree, though it is something I would consider revisiting now I’m older and wiser.

    Bones Black Questions

    Definitely true- I've already seen people on facebook say they'll be disappointed if Bones 4 core set isn't Bones Black, despite the fact that it was never promised that any of it would be Bones Black and they signed up for the kickstarter on the premise of it all being OG Bones

    Oh wow, that is a strong look! And a horsey! What more could you want? Kill off your current character, this guy is the way to go!

    GHOST Brush: A Paintbrush Set For Miniature Painters

    True, but that's not uncommon for that site- I would hope that for a kickstarter this guy has researched into it more than this and there actually is something more to his claims that these are superior to other synthetic brushes, but I am definitely steering clear of this one personally.

    GHOST Brush: A Paintbrush Set For Miniature Painters

    Also I hate to be cynical but I have to wonder how much these brushes differ from a very similar listing I just found on everyone's favourite bulk manufacturing / ordering site...

    The complete holders for miniature painting by I Scream Art

    Wow, another kickstarter for miniature holders? I do like the looks of this one more than others on the market at the moment, but I'm not convinced any of them are "better enough" for the prices they wanted compared to what I use now. The clamp for different size bases does look particularly good though- if anyone does go in on it when it delivers I'd be interested to hear your thoughts on using it.

    GHOST Brush: A Paintbrush Set For Miniature Painters

    I want to like this kickstarter, I really do. As someone who has yet to buy any sable brushes (I don't buy / wear fur- so in my mind I'm just conflicted on my ethical situation there) I would love some high quality synthetic brushes that won't curl, but I've read the kickstarter and I just don't really see why these are any different to synthetic brushes I can get at my local craft store. If I bought these and they curled the same as those eventually I wouldn't out that much money compared to some of the nicer synthetic brushes at my local art supply store, but I don't think I'll bother.

    Reaper Bones 4: Enthusiasm and Commentary Thread

    I agree! This is my first Bones Kickstarter, in the past has there been any sort of "Bones Bulk Blast" group to try and get through them as a group activity? If so I'll certainly be signing up I think!

    Lovely paint job! You’ve covered the integrated base very well- looks great!

    A New Hope, on VHS at home with my dad, we watched the first 3 in the week or 2 preceding the release of Phantom Menace , so I would have been 6/7- while I definitely enjoyed them I don’t think I could really appreciate it at that age but subsequent rewatches in later years earned it a real place in my heart
