Froggy the Great

Randomness XII: Eighteen! Purple! Squirrels!

Recommended Posts

Spent the day outside being lazy on my lounger. Blue sky with no clouds but because there's been a light cool breeze all day it's been very pleasant. Not too hot.

Just entered my first Reaper order of the year in the online store as I don't want to miss out on this months mini.

Ordering minis always makes me happy so this afternoon has turned into a better day than it started.

Well, I didn't quite melt. It is 28° C out there, so pretty close to melting point for us Canadians, but there is a breeze. Nice new place, but it needs a few more squirrels, to deal with all you nuts.

Had to stop and count the squirrels to make sure there were indeed 18 purple squirrels. You will all be pleased to know that this thread is legit.

 

 I immediately did the same upon opening the spoiler...

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

 

 I hate it so, so, sooo much when I'm catching up on the last couple of pages of the thread and come up with some really awesome replies to posts...which have been locked.  :down::down::down:

Usually, the threads end while I'm at work and then I have to catch up on twenty pages of posts before I can start reading the new one. But at least three separate Randomness threads have ended while I was in the process of typing something brilliant.

Ah that fresh thread smell...

It's not bad, but I prefer fresh baked bread.

Wow... I missed the closing of the last thread by 20 PAGES?!?!?

I know I checked it this morning... Huh... 

Yeah, the end of a randomness thread is sort of like a great white shark feeding frenzy; except of course that the sharks aren't anywhere near as rabid.::D:

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!

--OneBoot :D

Hurray for the right glasses!!

 

Also, 18 purple squirrels? I think someone spiked your coffee/tea/breakfast drink of choice, Froggy.

 

Soooo, it's Monday evening, anyone know what that means?

Yup, I'm back in New Jersey.

Again.

 Crap.

 

 

 it probably would have worked out better if I'd actually gotten around to cooking the chicken I bought tonight for tomorrow's lunch... :rolleyes:

 

Welp, orf to McD's, and cold McDoubles again tomorrow, lol.

      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.
