It made it to 1000.

 

Other threads that survived longer did so because they crossed the threshold when no moderators were watching.

Only in your view. From our lowly perspective, it's a mere 999 pages.

Next time, don't make any posts that vanish.

On the recommendation of, well everybody, really, I decided to watch What We Do in the Shadows. And at the start is a 5 or 10 second teaser for an Amazon Original: The Tick, coming August 25.

 

Hmm.

Yeah, I saw that after I jumped into this thread.  That is probably my favorite all-time recording.  Not that I can pick out single songs from it very well.  They just make me think of other songs.  I even anticipate the balloon pop... 

 

I do like your amendments though... 

 

I was frantically composing in the fear that the thread would close before I could think of a decent satire

You know, one of the things I love the most about this place is that this kind of thing is completely reasonable here. :lol:

Been a pretty good day so far. I had my optometrist appt, and got to wow him with one of my painted minis (I brought one plus a paintbrush to demonstrate what focal strength I needed), and his reaction was priceless. He was all :blink: "Wow, you actually paint such tiny things?!" :lol: He also immediately saw why both my current prescription and generic reading glasses don't work so good for me for painting. So he had me hold the mini like I was painting it and tried a few different lenses over the top of my existing ones, and found a good match pretty quickly. Huzzah, no more eye strain!! :bday:

 

Then I stopped by the food area (I go to Costco optical) for a polish dog and ice cream since they're super yummy and crazy cheap, and happened to run into an acquaintance there. We talked about clothes and Disneyland and how stupidly hot it is outside.

 

Next I was finally able to pick up my new inhaler prescription (the one I've been carrying around is... *checks* ...2 years out of date :unsure: ), so my lungs will be less likely to spontaneously kill me now.

 

And now I'm back in my air conditioned apartment, where I get to hang out with you crazy people, and there's yummy leftover shepherd's pie in the fridge for dinner tonight. So yeah, good day so far. ^_^ 

 

Huzzah!

:wub: Sounds like you had a great day! And what a good optometrist, oh my goodness!!

 

Sculpting break time! Some Final Fantasy, dinner, and then maybe more sculpting. ^_^ Ooh, and some exercise thrown in there somewhere too.

      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.
