That's hilarious!

 

 

 

"Mother, Father, I'm pregnant by the North Wind."

"This would have never happened if you had let me apprentice her to a Necromancer. Always work for Necromancers."

 

 

"Mariah, I want you to assassinate the North Wind."

"I don't offer family discounts. And Supernatural entities cost extra."

"He knocked up your sister."

"... I'll do it for free."

@Pegazus: Let me know if there is anything I can do to help out with shirts.

 

Can you draw whale orifices?

 

/Kidding. Think I have that one figured out. 

 

In family news, wife is upset. A small spring clip on her sewing machine broke. It's $50 plus parts to fix it, and the part isn't available to purchase. It's a $150 machine to start with. Gotta love our disposable machines.

Think I'm tired. Got scared for a second that I put hands on the wrong sides this morning. Not a figure's hands, but my own. All is well. Hands are on the proper arms.

The machines we have are over 50 years old. My mom's, my grandmother's, and my great-grandmother's. G-grandmother's machine is far older, an original Singer electric still attached to its table.. It has some issues (can't thread a bobbin anymore) but is the best working out of all three. We won't buy any of the newer plastic machines. Maybe check ebay for older ones that service better?

Today is a great example of why I hate people who advocate for more open office layouts. Not sure which variant i hate more - the sadistic jerks who don't care about the damage that kind of layout causes, as long as it saves a couple pennies on real estate, or the morons who are convinced that it actually does good things for productivity and/or collaboration and/or anything else. (It doesn't. Repeated studies show that it kills productivity and reduces collaboration, while wrecking morale.)

 

The second category bothers me more. Somehow I only experience ordinary, routine disgruntlement when I think I am being screwed for base economic reasons. ::P:

I second this idea. Those older machines were built to last! Maybe not as fancy, but they could take a beating and keep on stitching!

A1 makes for a decent enough replacement for HP Sauce on a bacon sandwich. It's distinctly different, because HP is more fruity while A1 is more spicy, but it still tastes really good. So yea, take those 2 cups of bacon, stick them between two pieces of bread, and lay a strip of A1 down on them. Eat it and then tell me it wasn't tasty...

It's the Noise Cancelling Headphones lobby. Middle management is in the pocket of Big Bose.

Got a loaner while my own car will be checked out tomorrow.

Airco cools when it feels like it instead of when I hit the buttons...

Maybe sensors, maybe thermostate. Hope it falls under the warranty.

 

Did some hobbying today.

Ordered pizza and shoarma.

 

Just got a message from youngest stepvixen who is in Spain with friends.

They are enjoying themselves.

 

Now I think I will chill out by watching the DVD of the last tour of Nuclear Krill.

Not the Last Tour video... /facepalm ... I still regret segments of that video...

Now don't get me wrong, the lighting and staging was superb, but it's what happened after the solo and then backstage that makes me cringe.  

Please... just fast forward through that part...

      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:)

      Presenting a favourite mini of mine, painted a few years back but not shown until now - Forgeworld's Warpfire Dragon.

      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.
