Was asked to paint this up for a friend who loves Japanese stuff and is planning on running a game based around Asian stuff. Not sure of the company, they just handed me the mini. The base I had was a teeny bit smaller then the actual mini. So I moved the limbs a bit to make it look like it is creeping off the base. Actually really like the effect. Kind of wish it was my mini to keep.
In order to celebrate the 100th anniversary of animation in Japan the National Film Center has opened a site that will let you view some of the really old animation from the 20s, 30s, and 40s. Some are old enough to be completely silent while others do have sound. In either case, all of the one's I've taken a look at have the option to toggle English subtitles so you can read along. If you don't read Japanese I recommend using Chrome and activating the page translation feature to navigate.
Enjoy reliving the golden era of animation.
So as I am gathering things together to take to Reapercon, one of the things I pretty much need is a travel light....
I am looking at Ott lights, because I love how they work at home on my painting desk, and I have seen most of the members of NEMPA bring them to paint days....
So I am looking on the River site at the OttLite 290089 LED Handheld Task Lamp, and am wondering
A- can I also use an AC adapter power source with this? (The page lists on in the bought together, but it is from Nokia? )
B- are the little LED lights better than / worse than / equal to the 13w fluorescent bulb in the OttLite 515003 Battery Task Lamp model?
So opinions and experiences with these, or recommendations for others, would be awesome!
WWII was a major conflict and as such there are many model kits and miniatures out there.
However it has always struck me as odd that there are so few Japanese forces made.
Sure, there are some airplane kits, and some Chi-Ha tanks and a few infantry kits.
But is like they were a minor force if we compare it to the abundance of German, Russian and Allied troops.
I mean you can buy models from a lot of regular trucks, half tracks and such, but the Japanese only get a Tank or two?
Maybe I've been looking at the wrong places. And I must admit I haven't been following new releases for WWII kits.
But lately I got a little interest again.
So I'm curious, I prefer 28mm metal miniatures for this, what is out there depicting Japanese WWII forces?
Anyone know of a few nice metal kits?
Believe me, I really did Google search this question to death before posting it here, but the internet is useless because all the top-rated results are commercial links, forcing me instead to use search terms like "best place to go on holiday in America FxxK" or "nice place to visit in Florida/Texas/California SxxT" - The addition of a four letter word being the only way to create an anti-commercial filter.
Almost all the results I've had so far direct me to Trip Advisor, but Trip Advisor is notoriously unreliable, and to complicate matters further, I am going alone, so I also need to find accomodation that won't overcharge me on a single-room supplement. And no, I don't want to go hiking in the mountains or white-water canoeing. Why do people on Trip Advisor think everyone taking a vacation in the USA wants to go hiking or white-water canoeing? Okay, maybe it's not that I don't want to, but what would actually happen is that I'd be dehyrated, tired, suffer from a bout of cardiac arythmia and get a broken leg. I think I'll pass.
Preferably I'd like to go someplace where there's not too much shooting or stabbings either.
