House Figmentius Common Room, All Are Welcome

Recommended Posts

I have bought supplies.

Still waiting for an order of some small resin stuff, first package was lost, seller has sent me a new package, now hoping it will arrive this time..

 

It will be a rather large photodrop backboard / terrain thingie..

If I can pull it off it will have three sections that will flow into each other...I won't say to much till I actually start working on it.

But when I do, it means I will get to do a few things I never did before...

 

One hint though....it will be for my Nippon, Land of the Rising Moon Project.

Wow,  someone brushed the dust off of the house thread!

 

Happy to see people here again! 

 

My Mini goals are to finish the new dragon lords series 1 using new techniques to compare with my original from 30 years ago and to keep moving on the second and third series

Get better at dioramas

Finish the board for an industrial setting for CAV (I have all these wonderful chemical plant and homestead buildings from a kickstarter, I just need to get them painted!

Stop caring so much about what judges think of my work...

Okay, now I am scared. I was looking for the coffee pot, knocked over a 14' high stack of unpainted minis and found Glitterwolf!

Awww, you knocked over the glitterfort?  Gonna have to deal with the wrath and might of the soviet tanks for that one!  Don't worry, they're only like 1:144 scale tanks...

 

Coffee pot is disguised anyways.  it's this weird plastic looking thing that kind of looks like it only holds a filter, but we swear it brews coffee!

Hey!!! My Chaos Legions!!!

I was going to paint those...soon...sometime...after I finished the other projects!!!

No need to throw them all over the floor.

 

You wanted coffee?

The coffee pot is under that pile of Undead to your left.

 

Wait a minute...you joined Tabletop right? And now you're drinking OUR coffee?

Hrmph...well alright, be my guest.

Want a Stroopwafel with that, I think I have some over here.

Looks around.

 

Hello.    Hello.     Hello.     Hello.     Hello.

 

Doesn't look like anyone is around. Snags some coffee, a donut, and a couple pieces of bacon.

 

Apparently, the silly puppy left the lights on again when he left.

Now this is very interesting.

 

I've been looking for a bust that I could paint as a Heavy Metal or a Rockabilly Girl.

And now Nutsplanet has this.

So versatile, a great idea, I hope more like this will be produced.

Clever idea! Use decal paper to make whatever logo you need for the hat!

I hadn't thought of that.

Never used it.

 

I haven't purchased this one ( yet) I have a "few"other busts waiting, but this one is very very tempting!

I would have preferred her wearing a closed jacket ( denim or leather ).

But this is very close.

 

I have seen a punk girl bust, but that one has the wrong hairstyle and some symbols are already engraved.

So that one is out ( for now).

Okay, I may have a small problem...I can quit anytime I want!

Decal paper is easy to use. Just print the logo, words, etc onto it, then give it a few light coats of clear spray paint and it works great.

I have looked it up when you mentioned it.

Thing is, I don't want to, I want to paint it all freehand.

Difficult?  Yes, probably.

 

On the other hand, I have a history of writing the logos of Heavy Meyal bands on every surface at school when I was younger.

So I should be able to outline a nice band name with a pencil or micropen before painting it.

Now all that I need to do is purchase that bust.

 

It will have to wait a while though.

But it is high on my wishlist now.

I ordered that Bust and also pledged for another in the Ouroboros Kickstarter.

      Sitting on the bedside table on my side of the bed is a large glass jar full of dice.

      It's not ALL my dice, of course. There's a dicebag at school, loaded with disposables that I don't much care if they're lost or stolen. There's my MAIN dicebag, on the dining table downstairs, with my favorite twenty siders, my weather die, directional die, body parts twelve sider, and spindle D6s, and my EMERGENCY dicebag, with two each of the classic Platonian polyhedrons. In the drawer of the nightstand, there's the poker dice for use in games that use poker hands, and the Dungeon Crawl Classics dice, which include the d3, the d14, the d24, and other weird dice used to play that particular game... all in their respective themed dicebags.

      There's a thread on these boards right now for a Kickstarter, selling tool steel dice that you could apparently load into a gauss launcher and blast square holes through buildings, they're so tough. Every Reapercon the last few years has had lovely artisinal dice made from rare woods and exotic elements for sale. Fulfilling in the next couple weeks is a Kickstarter I signed up for, selling Wizard Dice, complete with a d2 shaped like a spell book. Looking forward to that.

      So many dice have stories. There's the speckled blue that rolled three twenties in a row the night we took down the Serpent Wizard.
       
      There's the soft plastic d10s that came with the boxed Marvel Super Heroes game, and have rolled so many times they barely have corners any more.
       
      There's the chipped green ones I got in the swag bag at my first convention, chipping so bad I ought to throw them out but I get sentimental.
       
      There's the crystal d20, one of the first clear Gamescience dice ever made, that rolled multiple fumbles the night Kaltos the Rogue couldn't backstab anything to save his life, and he threw it out the window, and I found it later when I was mowing the yard, and it's never rolled a 1 since. Did it learn its lesson?
       
      And the three black d6s with red pips given to me by Cerberus, the Guardian Of Hell, the night his little girl was born, because with a baby in the house, it was going to be a few years before he had time for games, and then he moved his family to Tennessee and never asked for them back. For some reason, all three dice tend to roll high.... mostly 5s and 6s. I've tested them.
       
      There's the little set of miniature lavender translucent dice that my ex wife had to have. Woman never played a game in her life that wasn't Monopoly, Scrabble, or Gin Rummy, but she saw those dice and had to buy them. 

      There's the fake ivory d6 that when rolled fair, even out of a cup, will roll ones more than half the time. I have no idea where it came from.

      There's the little plastic box full of tiny d6s I got out of Pirates Of The Spanish Main boosterpacks, and I just shake the box and drop it when I wanna roll fireballs. There's the d20 that's as big as my fist and weighs nearly a pound.

      And I wonder: Is this fascinated acquisitiveness the result of starting my gaming career with a D&D Basic Box that had the little laminated chits instead of dice? Or do other people have this weird fascination for collector dice? Given the number of Kickstarters, I figure it CAN'T be just ME...

      A while back I figured that no collection was really complete without a Sir Forscale and I thought I'd paint him in the colors of Figmentius. Eventually I'll do one for all the houses.

      I was pleasantly surprised how well the freehand on the Unicorn turned out. Tonight is also the first time using my new camera, and the photos turned out quite well after I figured out what a Macro was.
