    Punga Miniatures- Canitaurs and Felitaurs

    Well, I am now the future owner of some hexapods. They do meet my definition for being different and interesting. Have to see how the mix and matching of the sets works but this concept sort of grew on me. (although the concept of a Stonehaven Grippli riding a dachshund inquisitor as a 5e pair of PC's pretty much had me locked in from the start)

  4. Today a package from Mr Poots arrived on my doorstep in what has to be record delivery for a Kingdom Death order (only 1 week after i bought it!) added the Dung beetle knight and Spundicules expansions that were on sale and the Faces of Death white box just because.

    Stonehaven Dwarves Vol. 2

    Maybe when ibsee some greens. These seem a little to light and hunched rather than stocky to me, but I have liked a lot if the previous efforts and a few more female dwarves would be good. We will see

    2018 Secret Sophie

    It's been a heck of a month. I can finally get started this week. The pieces are selected, finding time to apply paint has been a challenge!
  9. Hope you're feeling better! Vertigo is not fun whatever the cause.

    These are terrific if you what you want it for is internet and Google docs. Not good for gaming or classic pc software. Many schools use them for education purposes with a replacement value of around 250. The one my son's had was a 14 inch screen and a typical laptop sized keyboard. Unless your are a pc gamer or a real database freak I wholeheartedly recommend them (note of honesty here: in am a gamer and my laptop is a pretty rockin Lenovo 15 inch gaming laptop which was also a pretty great deal at black Friday last year for around 800.)

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    There are some pretty nice 28mm scale ships out there in both resin and laser cut wood and all for less than this one. Looks nice though. Wouldn't mind seeing it in person. As I have a fleet of 4 from a cutter to a 3 masted 4th rate I don't think I will be purchasing one any time soon.

    Unpainted Minis from Wizkids

    I wound up picking up all three because, well, dragons. Size is about the same as Deathsleet. Not a bad size for a dragon .but not the size of Garuth or Marthrangul either. The detailing is much sharper than bones though (literally in the case of the red dragon, I'm calling him Spike!) Very nice setup for doing lots of shading with very few flat surfaces, well setup to make even a basecoat, wash, drybrush 2 hour paint job look good.
  18. You'll be fine. The first compressor I owned was the TCP version of that compressor. I used it for 2 years before I switched, mainly for the better water removal and because a friend wanted to buy that one. (He needed a compressor, I was going to be travelling for 2 weeks, it worked) The alternative to a respirator is a spray booth. The one I have has a vent outside through a filter. A spray booth has the added advantage of paint not floating out in the room as dust As a note, I have a beard, respirators are of limited use...

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Sounds like an alien or elven building to me.
  20. I am no great expert but my experience says if you can get one with a reservoir take that one. it makes for dryer air and gives you a much more even pressure for the brush. Your compressor will also probably last longer. I also recommend getting a good water/oil separator to go on the outlet. Again, better quality air means a better consistency of spray from the airbrush. For reference, I use the TC-20T compressor from TCP global. I started with a master airbrush but moved pretty quickly up to a Badger Sotar as my go to brush with a patriot for doing fine work and a second Sotar for doing metallic paints because its a pain to clean all the fleck out of the brush when i switch paints.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    well. my plan was to do hobbying today. That was not to be. sump pump decided to fail on. only reason it has lasted as long as it did was because its been raining and yucky all week. got back from my trip and discovered the basement smelled of steam and electric magic smoke. The water in the pipe out from the pump was the temperature of hot tea. So off to the store for a new pump. And then an second trip to the store for the associated PVC pipes and fittings because the old stuff cracked when I tried to pull it apart. And then to get the lights in that room to work right... So, after the local hardware store gave me their Most Visits person award for the day. I got everything together and started it up. So far, no leaks. Maybe some hobbying this evening? Tomorrow is shot due to other engagements and packing for my next trip. I need a break from adulting. On a side note: apparently the locals have decided that there isn't much exciting news. Today's headline: "Local Town complains about rash of men braking cars." Stop signs are meant to be suggestions maybe?
