Getting to Know Each Other = July Edition

Recommended Posts

I would say fluff is the reason you play a named rpg.  If not for the fluff, why dragonlance?  It doesn't really matter much to me for most of the skirmish games I've played though.  If it's well written then I'll read it, but if not I'll pass.

Question for July 18: Is gameverse "fluff" important to you, an irrelevancy, or does it annoy and irritate?

 

(If the answer varies by game do elaborate...)

Generally speaking yes. In table top games I haven't much paid attention to the background information available, because we just run home brew campaings. But in video games and such I love to know what's going on in quests and so forth. I read all the books in skyrim and eso. 

 

But then, I prefer the Silmarillion to Tolkien's novels.

I love fluff. I live for the fluff. If the fluff is inconsistent or inadequate I will make new fluff. Pages of it. Reams. The players may never see all of it there but the game will have fluff enough for me to wallow in!

A woman after my own heart :lol:

Sometimes the fluff needs a good scrubbing and de-fluffing though...

The thread has gone to the dogs...happily I like dogs.

 

So, therefore[?] the next question will be Star Trek  themed.  Some background knowledge is required. The Next Generation show (and the subsequent shows) kept running into an entity that would only identify itself as Q.

 

Q was whatever degree of all powerful the script writers found to be convenient. At least on a par with the Organians or Trelayne's parents, but with less conscience.

...just setting up the next question.

Four seems like it would be adequate for me.

None. Twenty four is about as many as I can handle.

Meh.  After 24 years of submarine life, "day" is a variable thing.  I can make it whatever I want.  Getting others to accept my definition, that's the real trick.

Depends on the day.

 

MONDAY - Minus 8.

WORKDAYS - Minus 6 ( 2 working hours of meeting coworkers and needed to justify monthly payment )

WEEKEND or VACATION DAYS - Plus 8 hours.

7, -13, 8.27, 131, and pi. For the first week.

 

You might notice that there are only five changes. That's because I'm going to change the length of the week, too.

 

Because I am the most annoying character in all of television history. And yes, that includes Steve Urkel and Arnold Horshack.

0. I'd add one day to the weekend instead.

None. There was a time when I worked up to 20 hours a day and it nearly killed me. Now I'm working 8-10, constantly distracted by family duties, older and not as energetic and like to have a bit of time to just sit or do hobby stuff. If there were more hours I'd have to be doing more and I feel like I'm already doing enough. There are some things I'd love to have godlike powers to fix but the amount of time I have isn't one of them. Actually accomplishing something with that time would be great.

      The obligatory rulze posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. Should I be unable to post a question for the day a crack team of deputy quisitors, former quisitors, and random forum members are all chomping at the bit to step in and take my place... 
      2. In theory there is a 24 hour span to answer that question before the next question is posted.
      2.5. (Rule 2 is the most frequently ignored rule.)
      3. Questions are going to be posted between 6AM and 8AM EST
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me. 
      5. You do not have to answer every question to play...
      6. If a question is TMI or N/A simply wait for the next question.. ..or post that you decline to answer (clues regarding why are always fun).
      7. Weekend questions may take the form of two or three day challenges, often starting on Fridays.
       
      I'm going to go walk the dogs, and then post the first question of the month...

      This year is the year of giving miniatures as birthday gifts to the friends I game with. One of these fine fellows--my oldest and dearest friend--has a birthday in a couple weeks. He loves magic-users and is obsessed with Harry Potter, so I painted up a 25th anniversary Domur as a classic "Gandalf the Grey" style wizard for his present:



      Tried to layer the flames to give some interesting and pleasing texture. Let me know how I did.

       
       
      Also, given his love for all things Potter, I did my best to modify Domur's spellbook to a more familiar book cover...

      I'm actually surprised I could keep the brush steady enough for it to come across at all similar, to be honest.

      This is pretty done besides the jewelry I plan to sculpt on it. As my scultping is Meh, I'm calling this the final product. I did something different with the eyes as I didnt really want to give her human or dragon eyes so I did neither. 
       
      I kind of like how they turned out considering she sat unpainted for weeks because I wasnt sure on what to do with the eyes!

      So, 2017 was my first year in this hobby. I discovered the joys of miniatures. I discovered Reaper. I discovered Bones 4, and the Reaper forums with it. I'm going to post pictures of everything I've painted this year, more or less in order...with a bit of a blurb about my journey. Starting with before I joined these forums, my first miniatures. 
       
      KOBOLDS - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72557


      These were my first miniatures I painted. Yeah. I started with small kobolds... And with WizKids... (I didn't have primer on hand to start).
       
      GOBLINS - Reaper Bones - 77024

      What comes after kobolds? Goblins. I have no idea how there are only 9, when they come in packs of 6....I only remember painting 9, as well...This is a mystery... Also, these guys got painted based on a Runescape quest...yeah. I'm a nerd.
       
      ADVENTURERS - WizKids Deep Cuts -  72596, 72597, 72600, 72601

      So I used the WizKids adventures for Acolytes in my Hoard of the Dragon Queen game...yeah...these were my first human paint jobs.
       
      Golanth, Half Dragon Warrior - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03463

      Golanth was the first metal mini I painted. I remember loving tinting his armor. I also had to base him to keep him from falling over.
       
      Various Furniture - Reaper Bones - 77319, 77138, 77137

      I wanted some dungeon dressing...
       
      Swarms - Reaper Bones - 77129, 77128

      Thanks to Hoard of the Dragon Queen, the enemies my players are most afraid of are...RAT SWARMS. Yeah, the rat swarms in ch.1 almost ended up with a TPK. Good times.
       
      Halfling Rogue - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72627

      This chick was my first painted player mini. She was a halfling bard. I remember giving up on her eyes.
       
      Dracolisks - Reaper Bones - 77379

      I was super proud of these guys when I first did them. I loved how the washes looked!
       
      Cultist - Reaper Bones - 77351

      My goodness, I started to do detail with this guy! I'd actually discovered Reaper's forums with him, but I stayed just a lurker for a while.
       
      Andriessa, Female Wizard - Reaper Bones - 77386 OR 77381 (DDS2)

      I really spent a lot of time on her. I wanted to try and see just how detailed I could paint. 
       
      More Goblins - WizKids Deep Cuts - 72579

      More goblins.
       
      Black Bear (Companion Animals) - Reaper Bones - 77216

      The druid kept turning into a bear. It made me angry, but I still painted him up a mini.
       
      Phoenix  - WizKids Nolzur's Marvelous Miniatures - 72563

      I just kind of stuck some red ink on this one.
       
      Deep Ones - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - SKU ????????? (None of my searches are finding these guys)

       
      Peryton - Reaper Bones - 77392

       I actually used reference photos for this guy!
       
      Spiders - Reaper Bones - 77025

      Mister Mouse is scared of spiders and hates these guys. He insists I keep them put away.
       
      Cassie, Female Gnome Wizard - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03340

      Recognize her? She was the first mini I posted up on these forums! She was used as my mini for my player character, Ashes. She was also my first attempt at basing. Additionally, you might remember her being my avatar for a long while.
       
      Zombies - Reaper Bones - 77053, 77014

      I played with some special effects with these guys. I still love the results! 
       
      Skeletons - Reaper Bones - 77242, 77241, 77244, 77238, 77237

      So many skeletons! I also think I have the wrong sku for my spearman...
       
      Ghast - Reaper Bones - 77159

       
      Wraith - Reaper Bones - 77097

      I tried adding a tuft of grass to this guy, in the back.
       
      Plant Thing - Reaper Bones - ?????

      I got this from Stoneskull...don't know the actual SKU.
       
      Bear - Reaper Bones - ??????

      I have no idea the SKU on this bear - it came with Bones 3 core. He was my first attempt to paint for display, instead of tabletop.
       
      More Cultists and a Circle - Reaper Bones - 77351

      I tried to get a glowy effect on the circle...I still like the first cultist I did a little better...
       
      Tombstone - Reaper Bones - ?????

      From Bones 3 Graveyard
       
      Necromancer - Reaper Bones - 77283

      I hate the paint job I did on her...she's the last mini I painted using only Army Painter Paints...
       
      Level Up! - Reaper Learn to Paint Kit - 08907

      And so, I leveled up (I have no clue where the gnome went, and the pirate apparently needs a touch-up)
       
      Adventuring Kid - Reaper Dark Haven Legends - 03783

      And so, I tried to apply what I learned and also do NMM...this kid didn't turn out so great. But I tried!
       
      Hot Foot - Reaper ReaperCon 2017 Mousling -  01616

      My FIRST MOUSLING!!!! I'm still really happy about how the bubbling lava came out. Also my lesson in painting before assembly.
       
      Bandit - Reaper Bones - ?????
       
      And so, I went back and tried speed painting something...
       
      Lizardman Archer - Reaper Bones - 77425

      Speed painted to test Eldar colors...
       
      Wrapping Dragon - Reaper Special Edition - 05193

      I finally start to be getting shading and eyes! Yay!
       
      Christmas Speed Paints - Reaper - ???, 77436, 77435, 77433, 01552

      And so, I now speed paint at a much higher quality than I even slow painted at in the beginning.
       
      I feel like 2017 was great. 92 painted miniatures later, I think my skill has improved drastically. I hope my skill keeps improving in 2018!
