Piecing together an all-vegetable remake of Pulp Fiction now... 

 

What does Marsellus Wallace look like?

 

Does he look like a beet?

 

DOES. HE. LOOK. LIKE. A BEET.

You probably wouldn't like my tampande then.  Manzanilla and kalamata olives, roasted red peppers and garlic diced finely (I use a food processor).  Make a great spread along with some pub cheese on slices of French bread.

 

Sounds good!!!

Put the whole recipe in the Good Eats Thread?

I grew up with olives in glass jars, cored out and stuffed with Things. Pimento, almonds, whole pearl onions, garlic, jalapeno chunks, random '$*&% we forgot a real gift' gift olives... While other people were snacking on popcorn or potato chips I could sit there with a lobster fork and an olive jar and eat them until my dad stole the jar from me.

 

For me the brain weasels are somewhat chemical in nature. Jar olives, salty and oily, provide me with many of the chemical precursors I'm otherwise lacking. Helps keep the weasels in line.

 

Heh, most people who self medicate with food do it with sugar and ice cream and stereotypical things. I self medicate with olives, red bell peppers, dark meat chicken, and when things get really dire? Cheese. Eggs. Grapefruit. Tea...

Tea is always a good thing and keeps me happy. The BF is wise enough to realize this and will sometimes make a mug if I am tweaky without realizing it. Tension Tamer by Celestial Seasonings works as described. That stuff is magical. 

 

I forget to eat more when the brain weasels are active. Not anorexic, just... lack of interest? When I am exercising I crave lean chicken and other meats with (actual not euphemism) broccoli. Otherwise.... meh? Whatever is cheap or in the kitchen?

Drinking Celestial Seasons Bengal Spice now.

I blame @Cyradis ^_^

 

If you ever visit my neck of the woods, I'll drag you to their factory. It is glorious. You get to go in THE MINT ROOM. It is absolutely superb. If only they'd open up a bag and let me wallow in the mint *sigh*. I'd love to be locked in there. The smell is divine.

Fortunately, I cannot back that claim up with experience.

 

I... can?

 

Sorry. 

 

Also, not like brains at all. Mushrooms have more substance and taste like butter and garlic (or they should anyway)

Sounds cool!

 

We have herbs in our garden, mint is one of them, you can make tea out of that by just dunking it in hot water..

I got up to I think 7 varieties of mint in my yard. I might have a mint obsession.

      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.
