Randomness XII: Eighteen! Purple! Squirrels!

Recommended Posts

Lesson learned of the day: attaching cardboard from a blister pack to a craft stick will cause the resulting piece to get surprisingly warm.  Warm enough that I became concerned enough to place the piece into a non-flammable container.

 

Nothing caught fire though, so I will have to discard this as a possible arson technique.

Bones Superglue.  Maybe it was reacting to the ink on the cardboard?  Who knows?  And yes a craft stick is basically a popsicle stick that hasn't been used in a frozen treat.  Bigger ones could be used as lounge depressors.

A lounge depressor is an elephant on a couch.

Well, one guy was a no-show. The one guy who did show up is lucky I'm capable of running adventures for weeeny groups since this meant I had a total of 2 PCs.

 

Still, they got a lot done. Dealt with the shipwreck, realized they were set up, found the murder victims, caught malaria, heard about the cannibals, and came up with a plan to escape the blasted island before they get dead.

Oh, so my stupid jokes aside, a quick check of google for superglue and heat, lead to a nice big warning that using it on natural fibers can cause a powerful exothermic reaction. So you probably should not not use it on paper products. 

 

There was also a specific warning to not use it on cotton. Just in case you were considering it. (Fire)

I missed what this was about, but it sounds like Savage Tide.

I'm currently running Savage Tide and it's not that.  But it sounds cool and seafaring anyway.  ^_^

 

It's quiet around here on Saturdays.  We're watching "Cutthroat Island", which we persuaded the 15 year old daughter to watch with us.  Told her it was background for Savage Tide, actually.  :;):

      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.
