Randomness XII: Eighteen! Purple! Squirrels!

Recommended Posts

Only if you believe in such a mythical place as "Europe," where healthcare is affordable, vacation time is plentiful, and you're not expected to work yourself to death in overtime as a normal part of your job. That's just a fever dream.

On thr internet no one knows you're a continent.

 

That's because everyone on the Internet knows that continents are just a lie that the government tells you to make you happy. Just like the promise of higher wages and more jobs...

Every once in a while I just feel totally lost around here.   :huh:  

I read every post, and I feel that way sometimes, too.

That's the danger of the randomness thread! You get wolves and barbarians and goblins ...oh my! Steering the ship ::P:

 

It's fortunate that you've also got a few sailors around, so that someone who actually knows what they're doing can keep you out of (too much) trouble.

 

Off to New Jersey...again.

I got jobs.  I got jobs out the wazoo.  I pay in gruel, all the gruel you can eat.  Free medical, too, under the care of Dr. Buglips.  You want I should hook you up?  If you're a people person I got some clients what owes me and can give you a swanky title like Associate Manager of Financial Resolution.  You do a good job and I'll let you earn extra repossessing playground equipment what the municipals is behind on so they don't forget who runs the slide and see-saw racket.

I already got a job in collections. Except I go after cars. I run the parking space racket around where I live, and let me tell you, business is about to start booming in about a month. 30,000 extra people move into town and they're all a bunch of dumb college students who couldn't tell a yellow curb from a hole in the ground...

I think I must be lucky to live in a relatively compact city college neighborhood which is pretty walkable and has good public transportation and severely limited parking.

I had a cousin, Smushface, who used to chase cars too.

Yea, our public transport options around here are pretty bad. Some of the apartment complexes run their own busses because the actual transit busses stop after like 9pm. WVU has the PRT system, but it also shuts down at night and, while awesome on paper, is old, in need of a total overhaul(in progress), and has only 5 stops. If it were to be expanded massively, with more stops in the city and some stops outside the city limits in student-heavy areas, it would be the next best thing to a subway system though. Especially if they kept it running all night.

Hmmm, wait!

What if EUROPE is real and Amurika is a Fantasy?

      So I realized I only had one painted dwarf (!) when one of my GMs asked me if I had anything for the Jadeborn, a race in Exalted that is roughly equivalent to dwarves except for the 0.001% who are roughly equivalent to elves. And they are also sort of stone golems. Based on jade.
       
      I thought Reaper's 60184: Meyanda, Android Priestess, sculpted by Bobby Jackson, would do well for one of the elfy artisan Jadeborn and I pulled out a random assortment of seven (because of course) dwarves for the worker and warrior Jadeborn.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers.
       
      I left a few crystal and gem areas white so they will have more luminosity later.
       

      Left to right:
      Reaper 60184, Meyanda Android Priestess; Ral Partha; Hasslefree HFD014 Hatherley; Oathsworn Miniatures; Oathsworn Miniatures; Red Box Games; Stonehaven Miniatures; Reaper 14143: Kara Foehunter, Dwarf Hero
       
      Details:

       
      The Ral Partha dwarf is tiny!

      So, I'm a part of a Bi-Monthly Twitter Secret Santa'like Exchange called #BoxofManyThings! I'm doing Miniatures for both of the organizers of it and this is one of them. The individual in question goes by the Handle, owlbare on twitter and uses a Purple Owlbear as his Avatar. So I chose to do up a Cute little Owlbear for him in his signature Colors. These are actually his photos since I forgot to take any! Anywho, hope you enjoy:)

      Rather than clutter up the topic in sci-fi general with the details of how I'm painting these guys, I decided to start a wip thread. 
       
      The plan is to paint all the marines in the primaris half of the new warhammer 40000 starter box.
       
      So far I know the base colors I'm going with are purple armor, silver trim, blue weapons, green lenses. I haven't decided on squad markings or chapter symbol yet. This is of course not the colors of a canonical chapter, so I'm making it up as I go.
       
      I painted two test models just to make sure purple, blue, silver looked ok.

      I speed-painted these over two afternoons to be a party of NPC adventurers for an eclectic mash-up of Exalted and the World of Darkness.  They are 77322, Kassandra of the Blade (sculpted by Werner Klocke); 77405, Aeris, Female Elf Ranger (sculpted by Julie Guthrie); as-yet unnumbered Mythos figures based on 50032: Jake Ryan, Hero Explorer (sculpted by Bobby Jackson) and the Victorian Lord from the set 50326: Victorian Lord & Dame (sculpted by Bob Ridolfi); and 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke).
       
      WIP thread here.
