  1. I don't end up going to cons, haha! ...
  2. Got in a few games of Dragon Rampant last night. First battle was the boiler pot scenario with my undead defending their dwarf dinner against the nasty elves who wanted to kill the dwarves themselves. The battlefield after deployment: The brave defenders from the grave: Unfortunately, the elves advanced quickly and the pot was soon tipped over by the dragon rider. Next scenario was a death chase, with the dead being the chased and the elves doing the chasing. Turns out dragons are good at chasing, and I didn't make it half way before getting bogged down in combat. Soon it was down to a lone banshee, who put up a great fight but couldn't take on an army by herself. Major lessons learned are to take a balanced force, and not to rely upon summoning to much. Both games ended with a unit of skeletons left stranded off the board. Great fun had by all, though.
  3. Biggie Smalls?
  4. Oooh, a unit of faceless horrors would be cool, too.
  5. Some of those D&D minis blink dogs would make a good unit to give the invisibility rule to. The Pathfinder Jabberwock could be neat as well, especially if he's familiar with the poem.
  6. It's a cup of hot water with a blade of grass in it.
  7. For autumn, not so much. But it's spring over here right now, so... Back in the spring of 2011 I was big into MMJ, and started sharing some of their songs with a girl at work who I was rather taken with. This song in particular took her fancy, and the fact that she both wore her hair up at work and wore glasses made it all the more fitting. Well, fast forward three years and we danced to this as our first song at our wedding, which was also in the spring, and it's still a favourite song of mine.
  8. Feijoa. Fresh feijoa, stewed feijoa with ice cream, feijoa jam, feijoa fresh fruit smoothie, feijoa crumble... all of it. I was actually bummed out that I missed out on a month of the feijoa season when I went on my honeymoon. Pumpkin spice really isn't much of a thing here. I think Starbucks does the lattes.
  9. I don't think he appreciated it.
  10. Monday was officially done half an hour ago here. It's half past midnight, and I really should be going to bed, but I'm gearing up for graveyard shifts this month so it probably doesn't matter. Besides, browsing minis on the net is so much more fun...
  11. He's sleeping now, but I'll boop that nose in the morning.
  12. I just don't care about getting his clothes stained. The vast majority of his clothes are either hand-me-downs from friends or bought second hand in bulk. It was an unscheduled bath night tonight, though.
  13. I got spaghetti dinner plus 16-month-old son, which apparently means shirt stains, pants stains, couch stains, carpet stains...
  14. I'm beginning to think that there won't be an anniversary barbarian after all...

    Meg said it was chamois.

    Meg Maples was sent a prototype to review and she wrote this blog post about it: http://www.arcanepaintworks.com/blog-1/2017/9/18/everlasting-wet-palette-by-redgrass-games Long story short, she's not a fan, but being in the southern hemisphere may have been a factor. Redgrass said that the problem she was having of too much water coming through the paper and watering down her paint was due to using heavier body artist's acrylics, but it doesn't seem to make much sense that thinner hobby paints wouldn't be more affected. For me, I'm happy to stick with home made.
  17. That's fair, and tbh I'm of a similar mindset, though if the boxed game seems like reasonable value for two gangs then I'll probably be looking to pick one up at some point. They'll make great raiders for TNT even if the game is pants.
  18. I haven't heard specific mention of terrain rules in a second release, but this is what they said on the Warhammer Community site: "As well as the underhive style of play covered by the boxed set, there will also be ways to play Necromunda with the multi-level skirmishes that defined the classic version of the game." The tiles and bulkheads are designed to represent sewers and tunnels in the underhive.

    Now that the Fan Favourites has a Crabman, do we get Earl and Randy as well?

    Maybe I'm in the minority here, but I'm not overly enthusiastic about how they've split the core this time. I understand it, but I guess it just wasn't what I was expecting. For example, I was looking forward to picking up the three demons from the Demons and Devils set but I actively dislike the minitaurs, Baba Yaga leaves me cold, and I already have two copies of the Chaos Warrior guy in resin. Ahh well, more stuff to get at retail I suppose.
  21. I think they still sell a pack of three Space Marine casualties, which could make for great Imperial objectives.
  22. No. No, man. Stuff, no man. I believe you'd get your elf kicked sayin' something like that, man.
  23. Last week, as some of you might recall, I had a bit of a rant on Facebook about hating my painting. I'd had a bad night's session, things weren't going well and it was really getting to me. Anyway, in amongst some really supportive and uplifting comments, my good friend sent me this message: "Bro, when Riley died you posted about how you had massive respect for him because he worked damn hard at his craft. From my perspective you are the same way with your painting. You got me into painting and I'm grateful for that. There are hurdles in anything you do in life. If it was easy it wouldn't be worth doing. You stick with it and it will be awesome." For a bit of context, Riley was a friend and former coworker of ours who died in a traffic accident a year ago. At the time I'd made mention of how much I admired his dedication to his photography - the guy would think nothing of sitting on an overpass in the freezing cold all night to get a time lapse shot that he wanted - and for someone to show the same kind of admiration to me was incredibly touching (I may have teared up a little at the farmer's market). So, I guess the thing that gives me inspiration, hope, joy, and peace is that I have some pretty amazing people in my life that I'm lucky to call my friends - and that includes a lot of the folks right here on these forums.

    Yeah I love the look of the hut, but I don't think I have a use in mind for the dinosaurs. If they have ridden dinos though, that could be tempting...

    My curiosity over the last part of the Darkreach expansion is definitely piqued. Demogorgon perhaps?
