    Getting to Know You, June 2018

    I'd like to learn non-metallic metals, you can get some really nice effects with it, but I've tried learning it before I don't have the patience.

    What's on TV?

    I'm down to just Legends of Tomorrow out of the CW superhero shows, going to make next years crossover interesting and possibly a little confusing.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Going out in a little bit to pick up my first ever pair of glasses, hopefully they won't make me look super-nerdy.

    I follow a handful of painting blogs, I also used to follow a few Youtubers but had to stop (My last computer really struggled with Youtube videos). Honestly, I find it so easy to lose myself down the rabbit-hole that is the Internet that I try to avoid finding too much to look at.

    I say toe-mart-toe. I'm terrible at pronouncing things myself (I always get caught out by words with silent letters, took me years to discover there's no P in corp for example), so I'm the last person to criticise how others speak.

    Randomness XIV: THE FLOOR IS LAVA!

    Amazon is crazy. I needed a new long plastic tray for the cacti on the windowsill, and the only one that was right size on Amazon was an add-on only item, so I chucked in some DVDs to get the order over £20. Got an e-mail a few hours later, for my convenience my order has been split, and the tray is now being sent separately anyways

    Grace and Benediction

    Presenting Grace (Leaping lady) and Benediction (Big scary dude), church enforcers in the game of Guild Ball. Had a lot of fun painting this pair, their highly patterned armour came out better than expected, but I think I dialled back the highlights on the purple capes a tad too much. As always, any comments or criticisms are warmly received.
  9. Already tried that, doesn't work. She just can't get her brain around the idea that it's the settlement that's important not it's inhabitants. She creates a pair of characters and sticks with them to the bitter end.
  10. This thread inspired me to fire up a fresh Kingdom Death: Monster campaign last night. No one died (Yay!), but one guy had his leg dissolved by monster urine (Boo!), but it did teach the others how to use ammonia (Yay!). I love the game, just wish I had someone to play with (My housemate has tried, but she gets too attached to her little dudes and takes it personally when they die horrifying, meaningless deaths).

    Not much of a video game player any more, but my housemate recently had to replace her DS and I've become hopelessly addicted to the copy of Mario Kart 7 that came with it.
  12. Finally decided to stop procrastinating and replace my PVC Brewer and Mason Guild Ball teams with metal ones, before they got any more difficult and expensive to track down. (The PVC ones aren't that terrible, they're mostly on about the same level as the average Bones 1 mini, I'd just rather have the much nicer metal ones). Tapper, Hooper, Friday and Honour, Harmony, Mallet were easy and cheap enough to buy (I suspect there must still be hundreds of these original starter sets gathering dust on game store shelves). But Scum, Spigot, Stave, Brick, Flint, and Marbles all had to be purchased from the good ol' US of A, incurring horrifying Ebay postage charges (still cheaper than buying them over here though). On the bright side I brought Scum and Spigot in a bundle with the Sing When You're Winning set for the price others were charging for just Scum and Spigot so I got 6 minis free! (That's how I'm looking at it anyways, it eases the pain).

    I'm pretty sure mine's a Sloth. It's the one that tells me there's no need to rush things, and those jobs I have to do today can wait until tomorrow.

    I don't know how hidden it is, but here's an oldie but a goody (IMO):- http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Dark Heaven Legends/a-z/02452 I really need to buy one, one day...
