I would be so very confused if I hadn't spent most of the last two years hanging out on the forums and long since given up any pretense at having a grip on reality...

Well...

 

 

Yes.

 

Just finished lunch. Don't want to work any more. Can't someone just pay me to paint minis and DM games?

I only stumbled into the random section here earlier this year. I tend to lurk in the random sections on several forums. I thought I was at home in the randomness. Now I am beginning to learn what true randomness is :blink:

The nuclear-krill page now points to Facebook, and to the empty "band wiki".

 

I'll see if I can add some content, and a link to the public Wikia page tonight.

So there is a guy at work in the call center who likes to call me and ask me the same question, "Hey devin is the Refrigerator Running? ... You better catch it." So I started to get back at him... I use old Simpson Jokes, you know, the ones where they call Moe's! I FOUND A LIST! I have used two of them on him now and they have worked!!!!!

 

Amanda Hug and Kiss 

&

Ivana Tinkle 

 

 

Here is the list I found I go off of this!

I can't believe he falls for them now. BAHAHAH!

In painting, there are some interesting questions about the safety of the materials we use and what precautions are necessary or desirable.

 

In general chemistry, there are situations where there really aren't any appropriate questions other than "They did what?! Intentionally?!"

 

Derek Lowe, who has been an industrial chemist for quite a while and who is a brilliant writer for Science, has an intermittent series called Things I Won't Work With, that, if you're interested in the crazier fringes of science, is definitely worth a look.

 

Minuscule sample:

 

Quote

But I have to admit, I’d never thought much about the next analog of hydrogen peroxide. Instead of having two oxygens in there, why not three: HOOOH? Indeed, why not? This is a general principle that can be extended to many other similar situations. Instead of being locked in a self-storage unit with two rabid wolverines, why not three?

And the comment threads are often as interesting as the articles, since he's very popular with working chemists, who have similar anecdotes from their own careers.

 

If you're the sort of person not intimidated by science and interested in train wrecks, I'd highly recommend the series. (His other stuff is also quite good, but quite a bit more sensible.)

I sooooo want a Nuclear Krill t-shirt now.

 

I do tooooo... Just need to find a good design and I'll work on making it happen. :bday:

 

I would add stuff to the wiki, but I don't know how to add pages that link back to the main page. 

 

I gotta say, NUCLEAR KRILL is the best thing to happen to me all summer. :bday: I told MrBoot about it, and he is highly amused. 

 

Huzzah!

I will happily help to make a t-shirt happen, if you find a design you like, and can get the rights ti reproduce it.

 

I can try poking at the wiki some time this week to help.

I am spreading the gospel of Nuclear Krill.  Non-Forumites are going to start to follow.

Nuclear Krill t-shirt day at ReaperCon?

 

If so, make it so we can customize them (like Zazzle... even if some of you don't like them) and use PayPal!

That's the tricky part, since I don't want to steal someone else's graphic to print on shirts. I could try to sketch something, but my confidence in my ability to draw krill is pretty low. :lol:

Back from the dentist, part two of scaling and root planing.  Yay?

 

Now for a lunch of very soft food and probably a lack of consciousness for a while.

 

 

That was rather the joke I was trying to make but I seem to have rolled a fumble.

 

As for krill minis, I have long hoped for an anthropomorphic lobster mini so that I could have a hardboiled detective announce that a "leggy redhead" had just entered the room.

 

 

This is still available from DSA through Ral Partha Europe.

It's called a Large Lobsteroid

Not a lobster.  But definitely a leggy redhead.  Wolf whistle not recommended.

I'm willing to kick in some cash to commission Siri to come up with something.  We know she can handle marine life.

 

Also, I think my Kraken may eventually be painted to be Nuclear Krill themed...

      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:)

      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.
