  1. Spring floral is here! I found these at Michael's this morning. Succulents are a thing, fake succulents even more so since you can't kill them. All of the ones I took pics of are small enough for table top use, 3" wide or less. I did not take note of prices, but you can get coupons on their web site to help with the cost.

    DRAGONLOCK™ 3D Printable Miniatures

    Ditto. Looks like they took one lizard man sculpt and made slight adjustments to give you several poses. Easier and faster than making 6 individual sculpts. But yeah, they do have that old school static feel to them .

    I'll second craft stores, especially the ones that sell fake flowers and plants. Succulents are very trendy right now. http://forum.reapermini.com/index.php?/forum/49-speed-army-tabletop-techniques/&do=add

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    Five of the cats live outside so that's not so much of an issue. I do have an extra 28lb bag in my car, though.

    We're about to get an ice storm, does that count? Going out to make a run for essentials (milk, bagels, cat food).

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    When you're a cook there are a lot of stupid little cuts and burns, but I only had to go to the hospital once to get it stitched up. It was the week before our wedding and I was distracted. The doctor was looking at it when my soon to be husband arrived wearing not only his permanent grumpy face but his shocked and worried face, and suddenly I was getting questions like "Do you feel safe at home, "Did anybody threaten you", and "Is there anything you want to tell me". Yeah, I'm an idiot who should know better when it comes to large sharp objects.

    77335: Hordlings (the 1st)

    As I recall those were tiny and didn't stand up very well. Cut that nub off the bottom and stick him on a metal washer.

    Guidance on base coat paints?

    How well did you shake it? I ask because I find it prone to separating easily. Also, it looks bad when you brush it on, like maybe you aren't getting enough coverage. Don't be tempted to keep painting primer on. One layer is enough. I have also found that even though the figure can be tacky, it will often take paint perfectly well, as long as it isn't rolled in cat hair first. :)

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    Overly sweet defines all the ones I've had or made. I don't think I've ever seen a recipe that called for sour cream. IMO most cookie recipes can benefit from the removal of 1/3 to 1/2 of the sugar.

    In high school art class the teacher would sometimes put on a record when we were drawing. He had two albums: America's Horse with no Name, and one with Christmas music in Spanish. Do you know how many times we listened to Feliz Navidad that year? I can't listen to America at all anymore.

    I listen to radio or a favorite CD. I prefer something light, just background noise. I don't know if it has a positive effect, but if it is too loud/fast/irritating I can't focus on the minis. We have put movies on the tv before, but only well-known ones we don't have to watch or follow too closely. I can't concentrate when DH has the tv on to one of his police/detective shows with lots of screaming, sirens and gunfire. I prefer CDs, because when the album ends I know it is time to get up and stretch.

    77281: Succubus - Speed Paint

    Love love love it! She reminds me of Barbara Eden in I Dream of Jeannie. Now I have to find my copy.

    Brr! It has gone from 65 to 30 overnight. Tea is steaming. Cat is penned for her trip to the vet. Aren't snickerdoodles those cookies covered in cinnamon sugar?

    She was $25? Now I remember why I didn't get one during the KS. I picked one up last year at the local con, out of the clearance box for $3.

    Outside the Pub

    Thanks. I was inspired by some of the scenes you've posted. The scenery is a mish mosh of stuff I have collected over the years. Hirst Arts barrel and crates. The paper street and pub are from Fat Dragon. The brick wall was 3d printed from OpenForge files. I found the various signs online and scaled them to fit. The ironwork railing is a 3d project my husband is developing.
  16. These are great! I love the effect you got on the Hero's face, and the cool retro blue robot aliens are classic!

    The Fantasy Four (Lewis Collins Miniatures)

    Tempted. That guard has some serious attitude. And shipping from the UK for 4 figs is stupidly cheap.

    Raise your hand if it's snowing

    It topped out at 65F today and I am about to put some steaks on the grill. Dinner is at 6:30. BYOB.
  19. We went to On the Basis of Sex this week. I liked it but wish it had been more in depth. RBG has had such an incredible life, and this movie only covers a few years early in her career. It left me wanting more. The acting was good in most places, flat in a few spots. I felt the ending was a little underwhelming. See it before it is gone, it won't be in theaters long. It may be a better home movie, there's nothing awesome about it that should be seen on the big screen.

    Happy Prognosticating Rodent Day

    I think my gang of feral kitties ate him. Anyone know what groundhog fur looks like? There's some clumps in the space under the back deck...

    So... who's ready for ReaperCon 2019?

    There's also a nice pool, both an indoor and outdoor version. I plan to spend time there again this year.

    Getting to Know You, Feb 2019

    Don't have a lot of plans for February. The weather is cold and unpleasant and this is usually our stay home and save for the rest of the year period. Two rpg weekends later this month, and some minis to finish for that. Lots of mold in the basement yet to clean up: stuff to move and boxes to sort. Seeing my rheumatologist next week to talk about the crappy care and ineffective drugs I got last year and hopefully get 2019 on track. Will post photos tomorrow.
