  1. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Late last night it was on the first page at the top, where all the Kickstarter and other featured goodies are placed. Now I see it is under the resources tab. The Power Palette looks the same to me, so I think it is new to GEM. The tool has been in place for many years.

    Beware of bonded leather chairs. I have one of the nicer ones from Staples (La-Z-Boy) and after a few years heavy use the covering has begun to crack. It still has great cushioning, though. I can sit in it for most of the day, and, so long as I get up every so often, I don't get stiff and sore.
  3. One Take on the Classes

    That sucks. Did the teacher or the students do anything about it? Complain to staff? Leave the class since they couldn't hear anyway? If I was in a class and couldn't hear, and nothing was done to fix the problem, I'd expect a refund.

    How do you break a pipe replacing a washing machine? Were the hose connectors fused together?
  5. So, who is excited about ReaperCon 2017

    The Reaper main page and store are now showing the 2017 ReaperCon Swag Bag. It is $49.99.

    Sometimes replacing something is the best way to find that thing. Are the replacements the same size and shapes as the ones you just found?

    They are usually made available the first day of the con. @Reaperbryan could tell us with certainty.

    To my eye, that brush looks defective. If you've ever seen a quality sable brush, you know it should come to a tight point. A good brush will make a point if you wet the brush then give it snap. Some require you point them by rolling them against your palette, your hand, or something. I'd try some hair conditioner to see if it helps. If it doesn't, contact Reaper for instructions. I asked them to replace a brush once that didn't make a good point, and they did.
  9. 01448: Elf Ranger Flat (ReaperCon 2017 Entry)

    The ranger looks very nice against that color of wood, and the colors of the figure go together well, too. Did this model get a number change? In the store, it is listed as 01448. The number 30018 isn't in the store.
  10. Keeper's Sanctum - an ub3r Diorama WIP

    Well said. I'm looking forward to a great finished diorama. Your WIP is already a great one, a lot of interesting stuff to learn in here.

    Lighting is crucial. You need enough, but not too much, and it is best to have a broad source of light or more than one lamp (one on either side of you) to avoid shadows. If your eyes are good, that may be all you need. I have a few different magnifiers, two head-mounted ones and one on a lamp. For painting the smallest details, there's no way I could do it without a magnifier. The magnifier on the lamp is used the least, but if you're just looking at the mini rather than painting it, it works well enough. For painting, I think it is harder to use since you have to look through it at a certain angle, and it is more uncomfortable when doing that for a long time. Between the two head-mounted magnifiers, the Optivisor is the better one and the cheap one from Harbor Freight does an okay job as well. I use them both, depending on how much magnification I want. It is easier in my case than switching lenses. Many magnifiers can be fitted with more than one lens, though. It took me a little time to get used to using head-mounted magnifiers, but once I did it became second nature. I've heard some people complain they can't use them, or that they get headaches, something I have not experienced. If you don't already wear glasses, you can use reading glasses in place of other magnifiers. Technically, I've worn reading glasses with my regular glasses, so it is possible, though not ideal. Also, if you wear glasses, you might be able to take them off to see better close-up. This depends on your prescription. I can do that, but it is awkward in my case, so I usually use a head-mounted visor.

    That sucks. Did they send the size you ordered? It is hard to understand how a shirt-making company could have their sizes so far off. Do they pay for returns or do you?
  13. [SPLIT] RC2017 Rooms thread

    What's this about fleecing Reaper? In what way? I'm not sure I heard that story.
