    It's snowing in The Pitt. Driving to work tomorrow should be interesting.

    Back in the late '90's, I was indirectly arced by a lightning strike while smoking a cigarette in my garage. The bolt hit a pine tree that was about 20 feet away from where I was sitting, traveled through it's root system into the concrete slab's rebar. Traveled through the oil fired hot water heater that I was sitting beside, branched into a 220v power cord that was running along the top of the entry door's threshold steps. The arc knocked the pilot light out with enough force to slam the hinged cover so that I remember the sound it made irrespective of the shotgun blast the thunder made a split second before. Then the arc traveled through my lower calf and up my spine and the flash was so bright, it felt as if the arc exited my eyes. After the strike, I have no idea how much time transpired, similar to how one can wake up disoriented from a lengthy nap. I'm just glad I didn't get hit directly and you know, that's the last time I purposefully see just how it feels to be struck by lightning. whew!

    Manually operated horizontal bandsaw operations. Triangular Machinist's Deburring Scraper usage. Constructing Predictive Analytical Statistical Derivations via quasi-random tangential event observance. Procrastination.

    I hope those miniatures aren't scaled down versions of the originals. If they're not and the quality is good, then this is very welcome news. :D

    2/16 The first miniatures I painted were little green army men with Testors enamel paints. Can't remember exactly when- I gave it a go when I was in 5th or 6th grade and set them aside til I was in the 8th grade. That year I saw some Grenadier boxed sets at a local toy store and got them. Let's see if I can find a pic of the first one I got... Painted them up and repainted some of them several times before finally selling the majority to a high school friend in the early 2000's. I'll have to get pic's of them to post up one of these days. 2/17 Cadwallon 10000 Paces Jailor is the latest piece I'm most proud. Once again I need to take pics. 2/18 I paint because I have to create. Or at least think about creating, something The Golden Quest continues...

    Found Cadwallon City of Thieves: The King of Ashes Expansion on Amazon for $20. I forgot that the plastic minis were produced at a smaller scale than the originals. sigh... At least I don't have to fork over $80 for the CMoN version of the Cyclops of Mid-Nor.

    They're definitely handy though it seems a good percentage of folk that own one are practically addicted to their usage. I have to wonder how staring at a screen of that size for hours a day will effect one's eyesight over say a decade or two. Not to mention holding a microwave transmitter beside one's head when making a call. I don't own one- yet.

    My condolences to you and your family, Siri.

    A batman-esque anti-hero. Have some obscure NC stoner metal with Tuesday in the song title. ;)

    @Chaoswolf Great minds think alike :D and is that robot hand missing a finger tip? lol

    Off the top of my head- I did forget about this Megadeath song, so here y'all go. ;)

    Cashing my paycheck. Since I've been playing the game far too much for my own good- 'Grim Dawn' miniatures in heroic scale would be cool. I doubt they'd sell well.

    Liked that hit he dropped back in the day. I think he needs to lay off the poutine though.

    It was either this gem or a compilation of all the spoken word intros Cradle of Filth have done over the decades.

    Something similar to the pic only not quite so austere and definitely within the contiguous United States. (according to the website I pulled the picture from, the castle is French.)

    Political schadenfreude, so to speak. Hobby-wise I haven't done really any work of note. Hopefully that will change over the course of 2018.

    For me it always is-sure, we can manufacture 6 months worth of that particular part in just 3 1/2 working days. With no lead time whatsoever, despite having to order the material from Chicago- No Problem. Thanks for your consideration and Have a Merry Christmas! Oh, you want 4 more months worth of the same part the day after New Years? In 2 1/2 working days? Sure thing! Happy New Year! and every year it's a different part.
  22. Getting to Know You ... December Edition

    If only it were just one... Pretty much all the pieces in which I have some sort of diorama planned. So, at least several dozen. My painting mojo is slipping away from me, however... Risking life and limb I shall have to follow my muse to another Great Old Oak (or in the vicinity thereof), construct appropriate living quarters and proceed to lay paint. For Ma'al I'm gonna need a bigger brush.

    I Flatline Remote Viewed™ a possible timeline for our present reality and due to quantum observation paradox, what I saw is coming to pass. The problem is that because of the nature of paradox, my psyche can no longer totally recall said observations, thus my ability to affect any potentiality has been greatly diminished to the point I can only rant about seemingly non related occurrences actually being somehow related. On a miniature company's forum, a mongolian basket weaving forum and social media. No one gets out alive (life is kinda like that, you know?) and if there is a sequel it begins "You ain't seen nothin' yet "

    Gotta be King Diamond's Halloween. Why? It's the reason for the season

    Question One~~ Sorry, I haven't paid enough attention to pumpkin spice themed products to be able to chose a most ridiculous. Question Two~~ Probably Pumpkin Spice Prophylactics.
