I... can?

 

Sorry. 

 

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

 

Mushrooms actually absorb the flavours from the herbs/spices you add.

I mostly fry them with pepper, paprika, parsley, garlic and a drop of worceistershire sauce.

I am aware.

 

Those flavors should always include butter and garlic ::P:

Garlic is a must, I agree!

Hope the weather stops torturing everyone for a while!  Except Buglips, of course, because the rock is due to get buried under snowdrifts soon.  ;)  I'm starting to feel like the weather people here are playing a game with the forecast where they keep saying it's going to rain in a few days but when it gets to that day it doesn't actually rain.  

 

And unexpected good news on the car repairs, apparently a plastic bit had come loose and was dangling down where it could bump a fan.  That plus some loose bolts on a plastic cover might have been the source of the unpleasant noise.  Hopefully.

It's always nice when it's something simple. Hope that means it's cheap too!!

agggg! I have a tech problem where I can figure out how to stop it, but I can't figure out why it happened in the first place.

Well then ... our pavilion survived barely. Bend metal, broken bolts ... errr. That will need some repairs. I need to make a total damage assessment tomorrow. Grrr.

I have discovered that there are 3 game stores in Montreal within 1.5km of where we're staying.

Possible side trip?

Folk Metal?!?

Oh, yes. There are some really cool bands that fall into that sub-genre.

Thanks for the vid, GlitterWolf; I hadn't heard of them before. :winkthumbs:

I can't tell you how many pizzas they have ruined!

We'll just have to agree to disagree on that one.

Free pizza is good pizza, yeah?

Well it cost $15 to maybe solve my problem, so...  ?  Really depends on whether the noise comes back.

Same here.

 

That statement (and following through on it) have gotten me into loads of fun trouble interesting situations.::D:

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

 

Mint is lovely but, um ...

 

The night the kudzu gets your fields you sleep like the dead...  <_<

 

It does take over.

 

I had some peppermint in a pot on the porch once.  I stopped watering it and it took two years to die.  It sent off incredibly strong horizontal tentacles out into space a yard or more to try to find a landing spot to take root in.

      Greetings!
       
      Presenting a favourite mini of mine, painted a few years back but not shown until now - Forgeworld's Warpfire Dragon.

      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.

      My GM needed a party of NPCs fast for a game of Exalted set in the World of Darkness (think fantasy characters popping up in a modern day world, more or less).
       
      There was no time to order anything, but we had the handy new Bones III core and Mythos sets.
       
      These are the Bones minis 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 as a free bonus 77409, Flara, Elf Heroine (sculpted by Werner Klocke), who was simply a "Vale Swordsman Elf Grunt" in metal (she was the first character picked for the one represented by Kassandra of the Blade, and I painted her up anyway as an extra and useful figure).
       
      I painted these really fast -- for me -- in two afternoons, one to prime and paint faces and one to paint the rest of them.  It's not quite my one-hour robot speed paint, but for me it was super fast and the results are more tabletop-quality than my usual run.
       
      First I washed and primed all the Bones with Reaper's Brown Liner.  I did not clean flash up as much as normal owing to the tight deadline.

       

       
      Skin work, using simple mixes of earth pigments plus white: Burnt Umber (for the darker skin tones), Burnt Sienna (for the pinker, lighter skin tones), Red Iron Oxide (for really pink skin) ,and Yellow Ochre plus Titanium White. Hair was laid in with the same palette plus Carbon Black.

       
      Rough shading with ruddy Burnt Sienna-Titanium White shadows and greyer Burnt Umber-Titanium White shadows.

       
      This character, a former Fae, has dramatic blue-streaked hair.  This is a classic mix of Phthalocyanine Blue and enough Titanium White to make it opaque.

      Earlier this week I got my hands on a set of bones 3 mythos cultists.
       
      I'm not really that into cthulhu, but I do love a crazy looking cult. So I went with purple robes with bronze weapons, and painted the faces as masks. Not really sure if they were meant to be masks, but I think it worked.
