It occurs to me that it's been awhile since I made my specialty of maple & coffee glazed bacon.

 

I sweeten my coffee with maple syrup, when I drink it sweetened.

Maple syrup is very expensive here, we can get the blended syrup stuff but that's pretty poor in comparison.

You forgot to put “and ship it to Erifnogard” on the end of that.

Maple syrup is a glorious thing. Real maple syrup, that is.

Is it weird that during Reapercon this thread evolved from one where glitter is thrown about and anthropomorphic wolves chase flying bacon to one where people are discussing chemistry as it relates to geology?

 

One of the downsides of my job is that I'm exposed on a regular basis to the terrible pop music that gets played in the clubs downtown. I woke up just now with one of those terrible songs stuck in my head. I'm half tempted to attempt some trepanning to relieve myself of it.

I have the heater off and it's supposed to be stupid cold outside, why it is so hot?! The oven's off, the heat's off, my clothes are off...

 

Is the apartment on fire and I just don't know it? Am I on fire? Do I need to set something on fire? Am I going insane?!

I turned off the AC today, because this week it hasn't gone above 75F and it's frequently been down in the low 40s at night. So, you know, I turned off the AC and turned the heat on low-ish - 68F - so that it really only kicks on at night. But I looked at the forecast for next week, and they're saying were going to be back up to 80F this weekend. I really, really wish the weather would make up its mind.

Have just gotten to the steamy bits in this stuff I’m writing.

 

“Rig for dive.”

”Clear the bridge.”

”Dive, dive, dive!”

 

 

 

 

 

 

(Not a quote or anything, just how it feels, a bit)

Personally I have found the dulcet sound of Ozzy’s voice on ‘Iron Man’ kills any ear worm dead on one play through.

I am immune to ear worms.  Or rather, I get them but I can shut them off at will.

Lucky.

 

I can try to shut them off, but they always, always, come back. I usually have to spend a bunch of time listening to other stuff to get rid of them. So right now I'm listening to Nerd Poker and hoping that listening to Brian Posehn playing D&D gets rid of whatever garbage this song is...

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

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       
       
      Thanks for looking!

      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.
