    I play Magic: the Gathering and I am not ashamed. I am a card flopper, and I enjoy it.<br /><br />Currently I'm not doing much of anything other than working, sleeping, and tending to the needs of the Evil Ones. Whee... what fun (yes, that was sarcasm).

    New England Paint day?

    Family is always first, so don't feel bad at all. Heh, if anything it gives a few of us more time to knock the rust off and increases the odds of Whiz and others being able to attend.

    Bacon...........again

    Bacon card sleeves Now I can play Magic and think of nice, crispy bacon instead of getting my keester handed to me ;)

    Boardgames you keep playing

    Hrmm... the games that I cannot be without... Checkers Munchkin Killer Bunnies Munchkin Quest Settlers of Catan Blokus Tsuro Khet I certainly don't have that many board games, but I'm a sucker for expansions or new variants for the ones I do have. Being both a comic book geek (Wednesdays are the best day of the week) and a Magic player, my disposable income tends to vanish rather quickly before board games are brought up.

    New England Paint day?

    I can't help but notice that Dilvish has gotten rather French.. Does this mean I'm going to have to learn how to say 'Chief Bubble-head' en Francais?

    New England Paint day?

    I'm in! And I'll be bringing my dead lead tote along. Anyone else in southern Maine that wants to attend, shoot me a message.

    New England Paint day?

    Helltown checking in! The amazing calendar says that I currently have May 28th free of events. Otherwise, I can't do Sundays (work), and most of the Saturdays before and after the 28th are occupied by Magic tournaments or Free Comic Book Day (which translate to 'Work'). If I can manage to make it down, I'll be hauling a tote of minis to swap with anyone interested. I picked up a bunch from friends clearing their Shelves of Shame and Closets of Doom in hopes of an RCON trip.

    painting over plastic?

    Repainting a pre-painted figure is a different animal than say the plastics that GW and Privateer Press are using. With any project you want to thoroughly wash the piece with soap and water. For prepaints, I suggest keeping it to mild soap as they can surprise you with being multi-piece if you're not entirely careful. Removing the paint is NOT something I'd try, they tend to melt when subjected to most solvents and the paint itself is designed to stay on through rough handling, even flexing doesn't normally crack the paint unless it's to extremes. After the bath, RMS Brush-on Primer grabs hold of the latest incarnation of HeroClix figures easily, but dulcote or RMS brush-on sealer should be used for more oily plastics especially the clear plastic phantasm type D&D figures. I recommend the latter because you can mix in brush-on primer to make sure you're getting good coverage. Games Workshop or Privateer Press can benefit from a very light scuff sand with a fine grit sanding sponge before their scrub and from there can be treated like puny, pewter people. Just don't soak 'em in your fav pewter stripper as it might not be friendly to plastics.

    Who are your favorite sculptors?

    Bobby Jackson followed closely by Derek Schubert, for me. Really digging Bobby's work for the Pathfinder line now that I finally get to paint Reaper again. I like Derek's minis because they're beautiful, 'nuff said.

    Me vs USPS

    Sounds like you should really talk to your postmaster and find out just why these items are being returned. It could be something simple or it could be the people on the receiving end are schmucks and gave you the wrong address. As far as the online postage for eBay, you have to drop those items off at the post office for the zip code you're shipping from. Example being that I can't take our online postage items for the store to the Topsham post office because the zip code for Topsham isn't the same for Brunswick, where we're located.

    Reaper Used In Games

    I was going to respond 'checkers' but then I thought of a couple of ways to do Checkers. I am surprised to see no one has yet mentioned Warhammer Fantasy. I have seen whole WFB armies done with RFs. There is also the much less well known fantasy mass combat game Armies of Arcana. My checkers set is all Reaper minis. Specifically the lil' Death that came with the '07 Christmas Sophie.

    NE Paint day?

    Time for a fresh round of cat herding already? Cool! Maine in midwinter's lovely, provided you can teleport like Nightcrawler.

    I never knew guys could get breast cancer

    ***Shudder*** It's true. Just attend a typical gaming convention and you'll see it for yourself. How to inspire a guy to hit the gym: "Y'know... I could loan you a sports bra to keep those out of your way, but I don't think I've got one big enough."

    no painting for me

    Yeep! Sorry to hear about your accident, hopefully the Army gave you a little sterner stuff than the 800mg Motrin the Navy pharmacy doles out like Trick-or-treat candy. Heh... I don't envy you the paperwork though, clumsiness tends to leave a lasting impression on anyone reading your medical jacket. My new doctor still finds my med record hilarious after a year of being my physician. Stern commands to refrain from playing musical chairs end each visit.

    Reaper Harvest

    Well drats... The thought is awesome so I'm going to have to try it for my Magic players (each can is a buck off entry fee or something). Thanks for the great idea even if I can't participate in your challenge.

    First Snowfall!!!

    As Maine decided to skip summer this year with an extended spring rainy season, I'm betting we'll be skipping the snowfall and heading straight for freezing temps where it's actually too cold to snow. My space heater and I are already good friends, it was such fun the night I turned it on and it read 54 degrees.
