  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    No, but thanks for the offer. So far today two large mugs have lied quite nicely. I've looked back at 2017's climb up the Mountain of Unpainted Minis, glanced ahead at what's coming in with KS fulfillment and Reaper Con, and made some plans for today. In other words, I've been awake for 3 hours and haven't yet accomplished anything truly useful. Maybe this afternoon will be better, since the one NFL team I follow is already out of the playoffs and I may not get sucked into watching today's games. BTW, I took my daughter (at her request!) to a Division 2 university/club-level hockey game last night. We don't get to go often, but it was a blast and we hope to go to our first NHL game, soon.

    "Come here, you big, beautiful cup of coffee and lie to me about how much we're going to get done today."

    Hotel booked! Checked flights, found costs too high vs driving.
  4. Reapercon 2018 Enthusiasm and Chatter

    For me, the change to Labor Day weekend adds new variables to consider. At the moment, they seem to land mostly on the negative side, with increased travel expenses across the board, plus crowded roads, hotels & restaurants, plus a family event schedule conflict. This will require more thought and planning, and family discussion.

    I may have to choose between RC and another family reunion in North Carolina. 2017 was our first in 25+ years, and everyone talked about a repeat this year. Decisions, decisions...
  6. Miniature Identification Pop Quiz!

    The center one strikes me as a late 70s to early 80s release of a warrior of Gondor, the White Tree on his shield. Can't quite put my finger on it, though. Is there a manufacturer symbol or SKU on the edge of the base? There's a bit of a flat spot in one photo, but I can't read anything from it. Might be nothing. Left side - still digging through catalogs, trying to find a match.

    The one on the right is from Fantasy Lords Boxed Set 6007, Dungeon Raiders - A54 - Half Elf Maid with Sword http://www.miniatures-workshop.com/lostminiswiki/index.php?title=Image:G-flbs-6007j.jpg
  8. Siri could use thoughts/prayers

    I'm so sorry, Siri. Prayers are going up tonight.

    Great work! I have yet to start mine, and Green Horde (not GreyHorde ) is around the corner, relatively speaking. Thankfully I am not staring at Massive Darkness.
  10. Post Your Hobby Wishlist Items

    Don't get me started wishing for hobby-related items, gaming groups, spaces. Genie of the Lamp: Just wish. GreyHorde: [interested] Wish? Genie of the Lamp: A wish is powerful. Listen, if you were to phrase correctly, the reward would be... GreyHorde: What? Genie of the Lamp: Well, more hobby stuff than you can imagine! GreyHorde: I don't know, I can imagine quite a bit.
  11. I remember that set! In similar fashion at Gen Con, I bought all the elves available at the time. Picket up many of the Arthurian men-at-arms and militia, too, but regrettably did not get the more courtly series. Not that I have seen, no, and I have been watching the site and occasionally inquiring about it for years. They were inspired by German woodcuts, if I recall correctly, so you're certainly in the right time period. I painted one set for my mother years ago, on a wooden plinth in a bell jar. After she passed away, my sister inherited the set and promised to take great care of it. I asked about it a few of months ago and she pointed at a storage shed, said it's in there, somewhere. I'm pretty sure that means I'll never see it again. :-( On the other hand, I have one last unpainted set that I will someday SoonTM finish. I'm in a similar boat. Don't know if I can, or should, but...I have a few elves in the wish list, and some human 30mm...and goblins...and....I am in sooooo much trouble.
  12. Happy Birthday Grey Horde

    Thanks, @Thes Hunter! Thanks, everyone!
  13. [SPLIT] Vortex Shakers

    I've had the Robart for years, but found two major issues with it. (1) Did not shake paints well enough, even letting it run for a while. (2) The fiddly strap. Yes, replacement straps are available, but I did not care for the ongoing expense and aggravation. They are 'rubber bands' and tend to dry out, crack, and eventually snap off. Not when shaking the paint, but when putting on / removing the strap. I recently acquired a vortexer like the one shown below. I plan to get a new 'head' for it, one that will handle 6 to 8 bottles at a time, and make use of the On switch. Holding the paints won't be necessary, then, just load it up and let it run.

    Military Miniature Society of Illinois - their big show is in October, this year was the 13th - 15th. Reaper Con's Open judging system - cert, bronze, silver, gold - has much in common with the MMSI, based on similar International standards. Besides the traditional historical and ordnance categories, some years ago they added a fantasy category.
