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

 

It's a Pathfinder game. It just happened to start with a betrayal, a poisoning, a shipwreck, and a dead guy.

 

And they're still 1st level.

My guess was Serpents Skull.

That first module is pretty great. I petered out a couple after that tho.

How'd you guess ::P:

 

Yeah, I'm running Serpent's Skull. I read through the whole thing and have notes and ideas for propping up some of the weak points, of which there are some doozies. Books 3 and 4 need some mighty focus added to them. Have to add a plot but that's not the first time :ph34r:

Lol glad to know I wasn't just imagining the lag halfway through there. 

 

Still want to finish reading that AP though. Think I'll pick it back up tomorrow.

So Youngest stepvixen now officially has a boyfriend...

He will come over tomorrow.

*** Polishes Brutus's fangs***

 

I've been working on my Ram Warrior Bust and the Huge Spider Cadirith for my Lost World Project.

 

This afternoon we will visit my girl's parents and take them to eat french fries and ice creams.

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.

 

Did you use superglue?

 

My eldest once set a cotton opera glove on fire by trying to superglue steampunk components to it.

 

Superglue and cotton do not mix. So possibly not paper either.

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)

 

Ayup.

 

If I had known the kid was attempting to use superglue I'd have put the kibosh on the project until more suitable materials were gathered.

 

On the plus side, she didn't get burned despite wearing the glove at the time - fast reflexes.

 

On the other plus side, she developed a paranoia about art supplies and a willingness to consult with the expert (me) before trying new things again.

 

On the minus side - yi-i-i-i-ikes! :blink:

Yep.  I knew about cotton (was talking to George about it on the hangouts last night actually).  I just never noticed with wood and paper before.  I had to press the paper around the wood and hold it into place for it to set, so I had plenty of contact area to feel the hear this time.

 

I'll keep using it as it is convenient, I'll just be sure to take precautions And let them cure on a nonflamable surface.

For drinks, sure.  For a shower?  I'd pass.

Tomorrow is the day!  I have set aside the entire day tomorrow to paint.  I have done everything to clear my schedule completely for tomorrow. I will wake up early and paint until I cannot.  It has been far too long since I laid paint on a mini. 

Good luck, and have fun!

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.

I went on a date like that once....

 

 

 

it was an absolute blast!

And wood glue isn't an option?

It is.  It just takes too long to dry and I would have to press the books until it sets up.  I are lazy.  And it doesn't appear to get hot enough to combust so super glue it is.

      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.
