  1. Progress is progress! Get it when and where you can!
  2. Top Hats and twisty mustaches because, just once, I'd like a reason to wear them both...
  3. The longest I've spent was about 12 hours straight: a buddy was playing Starcraft next to me and we'd chat back and forth... and it was glorious. Now that was about 20 years, 2 marriages, a divorce and 2 kids ago... Nowadays I get anywhere from 15 minutes to 2 hours with the occasional 3+ hour stint. Wet pallet and a permanent set-up are key to this. Sometimes my 15 minutes is simply blasting a coat of primer or varnish on a model or adding a quick wash to part of the model. On pieces that get a bit more attention and care, with the wet pallet I've been able to open it up, do the next round of highlights on an area, rinse brush, close the pallet up again in under 15 minutes. My goal is to do something hobby related (and this can include some tidying of my unruly space) every day. I'd say I accomplish this about 4 days a week now.
  4. Tiniest of happiest birthdays to you!
  5. A Kid: The Princess Bride A teen: The Hobbit An Adult: The Dresden series... yes, all of them!!!
  6. Good looking minis with good looking bases! Welcome and please share more!
  7. Not really hobby-related other than it will likely lessen my hobby purchases for the next little while... We acquired a new (second) car yesterday (picking it up on Friday). Mrs. Rahz is thrilled as it is in her name and they had one available with the features she really wanted, most importantly standard transmission and in the colour she wanted. Happy wife, happy modeler!! And for the curious, it's a 2017 Mazda 3 Sport GS. Now, going car shopping with a 5 and 8 year olds in tow is not really the most peaceful way to spend an early afternoon, but at least it's done.
  8. Thanks. I think I'm only going to paint up the abominations for BP since they are so unique. I have enough problems with infantry in 40K armies that walkers/runners would likely make me crazy. After these 3 are done, I'm going to move on to the Troll and the Alpha. Now that I've figured out how to base them, I'll be snapping them off their bases at the start which will make dealing with some more of the mold lines (though I didn't really attack them too much...) and painting easier.
  9. Very much worth bouncing for! I have an army of rats that are dire need of bases!
  10. I'm disappointed you think we'd all get caught! ;-) Nickname: Jamaica Cell Mate: A gentle soul named Henry. He too was arrested for producing massive quantities of weed though he smoked more than he should have. When and how are you getting out: Never! Finally have time to paint my minis, though I guess I'll have to get used to mold lines as sharp items are kind of frowned upon in these places...
  11. Happy Birthday!
  12. Ordered these a couple weeks back in honor of my birthday and they arrived yesterday! Perfect timing! The kids were even able to gift them to me last night! Lost Tribe will be to work on darker skin tones and Sail Away terrifies me from a painting perspective, so she should be loads of fun even if I don't do her justice.
  13. With 2/3 of the month gone, I've managed to finish one of the abominations for Black Plague so at least my goal has been reached. Hoping to wrap up the last 2 in the coming 10 days so I can go back to staring at Cinder...
