Randomness XII: Eighteen! Purple! Squirrels!

Recommended Posts

So it doesn't look like there's any brain bleeding or broken bones. But my dad's sodium is way low, so they're going to keep him overnight while they correct that. He's super unhappy about that, but the alternatives are worse. 

 

Could be worse, could be better. :shrug & sigh:

Sounds like a job for medicinal french fries.

*helps pass out the guns and ammunition for the brain weasel battle*

 

Also got mallets for whack-a-weasel.  That's always fun.

 

Seriously though, I hope things get better for everyone feeling down!

So 

I went back to my bad place....

Feeling really terrible about things...

Like I let everyone I care for down...

Really hope I can claw my way back...

Feeling like the brain weasels have won...

 

Brain weasels can't win 'cos we're here, we're humans, and we help each other.

Currently sitting in the ER because my dad fell and hit his head. They're doing "just in case" ex rays and ct scans. Have been here since 3:30 :mellow:

 

Aï. Sorry for the stress, hope it turns out okay.

Well handled, that. Sorry again for the stress.

Last winter, Reaper forum folks helped me through the worst spiral I'd had in years, and I don't even think a lot of folks knew what was going on.

 

Lots of good people here. We're all here for each other <3

Yes! I have departed the MTA and am now working for a company that runs head start programs.

 

Oh, will he ever return?

No, he'll never return,

And his fate is still unlearned.

He will ride forever 'neath the streets of Boston,

He's the man who'll ...

 

Never mind.

 

Glad you returned.

I don't think this place is equipped to see me through a real crisis, what with the word-filtering and all.

 

But there are liquor stores nearby.

I find typing "bleep" is actually kinda helpful. You get the rage release with a little bit of humor and it eases the mind.

Lol.

 

Nah.

 

 

(Don't know why I keep coming back to this particular Dave Chappelle bit lately, but it may be a pretty all right thing drawing me.)

I let my manager know that I might not be able to make it to work tonight with five and a half hours warning before my shift started. At three hours before my shift I confirmed that I wouldn't be able to make it in. 

 

And she she told me to find a replacement. While I'm trying to talk to doctors, talk to relatives, figure out what's going on with my dad, I have to flippin call my coworkers to bed them to cover my shift. 

 

I literally broke down in tears in the ER parking lot because I was so stressed. 

 

Yeah, I'm gonna be writing an angry email to my union rep.

      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.
