Recommended Posts

I wheel, I deal, I trade random things and acquire most of the hull of a mechanicus tank, seven skeletons, a pile of arms, and the cultists from the bones 3 mythos expansion, and most of a kabab.

 

(Take that barter system!)

I once saw a middle school student of mine trade a half eaten peanut butter sandwich (with a bite taken out of the remaining half) for a $5 iTunes gift card...

A bit late, but loot was pillaged on Friday:

 

20170617_202654.thumb.jpg.8f638c325ef0ac8b19fb934801b68851.jpg

 

Friend's store had switched over to Warpaints, and I had to get more to test out the washes and the Effects to compare them with the Citadel equivalents. Also got the shinies because the ghost of @OneBoot made me.

 

-Shining Silver

-Gun Metal

-Warlock Purple

-Disgusting Slime

-Wet Mud

-Blue Tone

-Purple Tone

-Military Shader (appears that I accidentally picked up a second one instead of Green Tone, they have similar labels)

 

Then off to the other game store for Citadel paints:

 

20170617_203336.thumb.jpg.824c1896f08a6e3f18802aea5fdbe5ee.jpg

 

-Rhinox Hide

-Flayed One Flesh

-Ceramite White

-Blue Horror

-Kabalite Green (duplicate)

-Hoeth Blue

-Brass Scorpion

-Calgar Blue

-Sycorax Bronze

-Dorn Yellow

-Slaanesh Grey

-Balthasar Gold

-Sybarite Green

-Altdorf Guard Blue

Gauss Blaster Green

 

And I headed to the hobby store, had to pick up something to support them, so I got Vallejo Model Air Green Zinc Chrom.

 

Also stopped at the local thrift store, these actually showed up:

I thought my day was over, but when i got home I checked my mail and found these:

These are the clay shapers I had ordered a few months ago, they were supposed to have arrived between April15 to May 2. When they didn't show up, the ones selling them immediately offered a refund, which I got. They might be late, but at least they were free in the end.

If you got a refund for them and they show up now, you really should offer to pay for them. 

Carma and all that.

Acquired for my husband as Father's Day gifts:

 

"Complicated Board Game: The Card Game" (which amused him highly although he immediately saw ways to improve it -- game designer mindset, I guess. ::P: )

 

And this (MANY thanks to David Brawley for the general recommendation and Baldur8762 for the signal boost!):

What-We-Do-in-the-Shadows.jpg

 

This is an award-winning New Zealand film, a mockumentary about vampires living in present-day New Zealand.  The reviews, which have been very good, have described it as like White Wolf's World of Darkness filtered through "The Young Ones" and given the "Spinal Tap" treatment.

 

Those are all things my husband is entertained by, so it seemed a good possibility.

 

Anyhow, PingosHusband was surprised (we don't usually do gifts on Father's Day) and pleased, so yay for a bit of good cheer.

So Berni comes in with a box. Hands it to me. Smiles.

I open it. It's an art book... Tony DiTerlizzi's Realms, a sort of career retrospective with focus on his gaming art, like for Planescape and Magic: The Gathering, and including the minis from Darksword.

"The hell?" I said. "Not that I'm not grateful, but what's the occasion? And how'd you know?"

She grins. "Amazon dropped the price forty percent, and I noticed it was on your want list."

Man, I am NOT used to a spouse who pays attention to my weirder obsessions...

I have that book on my shelf.  It is a nice collection of his work.

Not yet (to my understanding - that's my KS4 pledge. It was relatively small (apparently), and so I went relatively last...

The store we went to for Free RPG Day had a bit of a vulture problem, so not much was acquired from the event.

I did, however, pick up the new 40k boxed set:

59491c5d1d746_darkimperium.jpg.f0a9a4790ad7817f51e962ab9b5ff0b3.jpg

 

We also got the Chaos index (seemed like a good idea for the new edition), "Betrayal at House on the Hill", a few random paints and such, and I finally picked up some of the new WizKids ready to paint minis.

We also got a new hobby room (WiP):

The only bonus to having a slipped disk is that I'm forced to do things on my phone, like taking pictures and trying to update threads :)  Here's the things that I got back in February in my trip to Japan.  The two small tubes are epoxy, feel free to ask about any of the other things.

      Beard did not come out very good on Camera.  Otherwise I think he turned out pretty good.

    • By Logos
      Not sure of the name on this one but he turned out pretty good.  I did the eyes on this one but because of the hood the camera I was using could pick it up and the flash washed everything out.




    • By Logos
      I really like how this one turned out.  I wasn't too stoked on it at first but he really grew on me once I got some paint on him.




    • By Logos
      Wish I had the metal version of this one I think.  When you look at all the detail that was lost in the bones model...ugh he is a smooshie duckling.  Good enough for an NPC though.  
       
      Also sorry about the camera picks being a bit out of focus.  Did them with my phone and I see now that the manual settings I was using were a little off.  I was using autofocus but I don't think the camera in my motorola is any better than the camera on my old Samsung Note 3.  In some ways I think its inferior.

      Not sure of the name on this one.  I have another mess of figures that I got done so there will be more....lots more. lol.
