  1. Getting to Know You, Feb 2018

    My perfect burger: 1/5th lb fresh ground chuck from the local butcher, a little salt, flame grilled medium (still a touch pink), served on a buttered and toasted bun, with mayo, tomato and pickles. Sometimes onion and/or mustard. Once in a while blue cheese and caramelized onion. The best burgers start with the best beef, which we have in abundance here in KC, and I don't like to mess around with it much. If you haven't got good ground beef it has no business being in a burger. Go make chili and cover it up with spices. Favorite drink? A margarita, of course!
  2. I volunteer. I can top it off at the end if necessary, too.
  3. Another update. Looks like it is moving again. I hope he can complete this. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1327314385/barbaric-splendor-kickstarter-one-personalities/posts/2120831 "I sent money for production molds of 6 of the figures today (combining them into molds, image attached), and will fulfill orders/pledges involving those as soon as the casting is done, and continue on from there. I already have Orsa Stormbringer in hand and will only need to order a few of the original Datragg, and a couple more molds for the rest. The Bran the Bold preorders will be part of this first batch as well."

    Cool interpretation. I just picked this one up today.

    I am an "expert" level quilter and costumer, meaning I have taken money in exchange for custom orders. IMO, that's a lot like saying I'm a "pro painter". I also hold an advanced degree in library and information sciences, which means if it is on the internet, I can find it. And I have also been to culinary school, which may qualify me to wash dishes in some fancy restaurant. So, if you want to wrap yourself up in a wonky quilt, enjoy a warm bowl of soup, and look at pictures of cats, I can probably set you up.
  6. 3. painting with the lid open. Fastest way to dry out your paint is to let it sit there with the lid off while you fiddle with details. If you must use pots, put a small amount on a wet palette and close it up immediately. Reaper MSP will last a decade or more when cared for properly, if you don't use it up first. Some of my paint is from 2004 when it was first introduced, and it is still fine. That's not to say you won't have a bottle now and then that goes gummy or needs a few drops of distilled water to loosen it up. If you're only going to paint a little between now and delivery of Bones4, get one of the 3 sets you are considering, and wait to get the others. Less risk of it being mishandled in storage between now and then.
  7. Clippers?

    I got a cheap pair from the hardware store for less than $5. I clean up the cut with a knife if necessary.

    Dark brown with a few gray hairs, fading to light reddish brown on the ends. It's long and wavy and either worn loose, or pulled back into a clip.
  9. Watched "Operation Petticoat" last night. Cary Grant and Tony Curtis. An old one and a favorite. Love those wacky Navy guys.
  10. Hitting the big 40

    40 is a good place. You have hopefully paid some dues and are enjoying the rewards of life. Congrats.

    Ah ha! I bought that kneeling female magic user as a single figure sometime back in the 80's and have been trying to figure out where she came from ever since. I started painting because the figures were cool, paint was cheap (~.35, I could afford that as a teenager) and I liked doing creative stuff. Later I found that the extreme focus required helped me get through some unpleasant situations where I might have resorted to self harm instead. Now I am back to painting because I enjoy it, and I have an awesome group that uses figures when we game.
  12. We got in. The good guys were good, the bad guys were bad. The three female leads were badass, and the hot guy in the catsuit was ok, too. :) As usual, the Imax 3d had me sick to my stomach 3/4 of the way through. :(
  13. Hoping to see Black Panther today. A friend offered to get us tickets, but we found out last night he doesn't actually have the tickets, he's just hoping it won't be sold out when we arrive.
  14. Purely a matter of personal choice. Both sets have high quality paint for use on metal and Bones. Both sets have the Core colors, and enough color options to let you paint whatever you want. IMO, the HD paints come in some pretty bright colors so if that is more your thing you might consider that. Scroll through the color charts and see what you're attracted to, and what you need for what you want to paint. You can't go wrong with either choice.
  15. Grey Maidens

    Great job! Those coordinate very well.
  16. Reapercon BoGW?

    The USPS doesn't deliver in the Netherlands. They hand over to your postal service, which doesn't have a comparable service (so they tell us). But when you send something here, when the USPS gets it, they can send it on the US half of the trip as a Priority package, if that's what you pay for.
  17. Reapercon BoGW?

    Yeah, you can't send Priority overseas and they get really anal about using the priority boxes for anything else. Be sure to wear the drow costume when you go.

  19. Wow, with skillz like that you don't need to wait for somebody else's miniature.
  20. Weight Loss Support Thread

    Bought myself a 1 year gym membership this morning and did an hour of weights and cardio. Lost about 7 lbs of muscle weight after surgery, need to get it back. Anyone else?

    What he said. Our relationship is not limited to one day of romance and gift giving and I dislike how commercial holidays are in general. I will hit up the drugstore tomorrow and see if they have a couple bags of the snack/bite sized candy bars, as they are good for packing in lunches. Sounds like the perfect date. I may suggest that to DH. :)

    Not very. Still get paper statements, unless forced to switch over. I still write paper checks and pay with paper money, but the plastic card is useful in some situations. I drive to the bank and talk to a real person who speaks english, when I need their services. I am about 50/50 when it comes to books, I have discovered new authors before they got published on paper, and some of my favorite writers put out shorts in electronic only. With game books I like paper for reading through, but I like electronic for quick reference. I like to take the kindle if I have to sit and wait at the mechanic or the doctor's office.

    Looking good. Nice bases too.
  24. Snow globes and painted minis

    AFAIK once acrylic dries it is water proof. Not sure of the long term effects of glycerin.
