Monday was officially done half an hour ago here. It's half past midnight, and I really should be going to bed, but I'm gearing up for graveyard shifts this month so it probably doesn't matter. :zombie:

Besides, browsing minis on the net is so much more fun...

 I was 10 feet away from that amazing man a couple months ago. I got in line hours early so he could sign my DMG, but they kept letting the "fast pass" holders go in ahead of me. 10 minutes before he came in, they called the end of the line. Ahead of me. Because of those fast passes. :grr:

Dislike!!

I've never really been a fan of 'fast-pass' shenanigans ever since I first experienced their use. I was reminded of this on Saturday at Six Flags.

Anything else I have to say on the subject wouldn't be nice, so I'll stop there.

Wait. Can kids stain? :blink:

 

I know they stain everything they touch ::P: but is it like the myth of the 'funny faces stay that way'? If a kid makes a mess often enough does the kid stay messy?

Based on my experiences of watching 2 young men (20&21) grow up, I can safely say 'yes'.:lol:

Will do that tomorrow.

The thing causing stress is job related and will probably be dealt with in November..

My only experience with fast passes was at Disney World, and they actually seemed to have done it right. Granted, I had a fast pass, but it wasn't unlimited so after I used it I typically had to sit in the regular line. For some rides you had to schedule a time frame, usually an hour block, where your fast pass was valid. For others, they just had a fast pass line but there was some timer on how frequently you could use it on a particular ride, and if you used it and then tried again it wouldn't always scan. Then, when it came time to actually boarding the rides, if the ride was packed in both lines they'd send in a group of fast passes, then they'd send in a group of half fast passes and half regular, then they'd send a group of regular. At most, it was 2 groups of fast passes for each group of regulars. It made the fast pass line move quicker, and because it was usually shorter you got on faster, but as someone who was on both sides of the line I didn't find it terribly inconveniencing.

 

The only thing that bugged me a bit was that they had just opened a new ride that was listed on the fast pass scheduling as "fast pass not available until [date]." Except apparently there was some kind of VIP Fast Pass or something, because despite the majority of people with fast passes not having access there was a fast pass line that some people were able to use. It wasn't the fact that there were fast passes that bugged me, but the fact that they said fast passes weren't available while still letting some people fast pass it.

My sympathies to those who lost someone in the Las Vegas shooting.

I wonder what drove the shooter?

 

Hoping nobody we knew was among the victims.

It's more of a Typhoid Mary sort of thing.

I've found something new to listen to as I paint.. D&D Games! Watching, listening to Matthew Mercer DM'ing "Force Grey" as he was running a group through the new Tomb of Annihilation yesterday and today I'm listening him take a different group through Storm King's Thunder. He's an amazing DM who does a lot of voice acting for movies and video games.

My wife accuses me of having a Bromance Crush on Matthew Mercer.  I've spent many hours (and will spend many more) with him and his groups when I'm working on hobby projects.

      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.
