Oh I'll certainly take questions and discuss things if they want to but this is after lunch and is the last part of the day's presentations.  I'll be stunned if I get more than one or two comments/questions.  My objection was more that he seriously thought I was going to speechify for 2 hours.

 

You are correct, usually a 2 hour talk could be more effectively given in a lot less time.

Prolonged fatigue sucks! It feels exactly like the general tiredness, aches and brain fog of having a major cold, but without the runny nose and breathing problems.

 

I'm at two weeks without proper sleep. Had something like 10 cups of coffee yesterday to muscle through a 14h shift with several meetings. Went to bed at 7pm yesterday, too aching to properly rest. Got up at 11pm for a shower. Tried to sleep again around 1am. Again unable to properly rest.

 

Of course, I'm back at work at 6:30am. And am already at my fourth cup of coffee in as many hours. And now I'm breaking into a sweat while simply typing and being physically inactive. Gah!

 

24 hours to go before my weekend starts and I can allow myself to fall into a sleep induced coma.

 I vote that we all go back to bed, get a good night's sleep, and then wake up in a world where Jack has a well-paying job that doesn't suck and won't fire him in six months...

 Find a guitar and record a blues cd?

 

Learn to navigate by echolocation?

 

Get some dark glasses and wander around the streets "accidentally" grabbing parts of peoples' anatomy while asking if anyone has seen your cane? ::P:

Hmm.

 

So, we go to a gym a few days a week and the ticket machine at the parking entrance has a sort of grumpy, rude, abrupt, when-is-Skynet-gonna-take-over voice.

 

It says “Please press the button” and then when you do it says “Take the ticket” in such an abrupt, sulky fashion that my husband and I imagine it is biting back the “... puny meatbags” comment it wants to append.

 

It does also have some sort of special card reader which we have never had access to.

 

So.  Anyway, the other day we were leaving the garage when a posh, shiny car drove up, and as I was inserting our ticket to leave I heard the familiar voice coo softly “Please take the ticket,” and just as I was thinking “Wait, did that machine say please?” it voiced a warm and unheard-of  “Welcome” and let the car in.

 

The next time we went we got the same abrupt commands.

 

The parking garage voice has extra-nice comments for VIPs! :blink:

 

I feel so steerage-class.

Maybe the Ticket Machine took a fancy to the nice shiny car?

Why can't I wake up?  The 24oz of coffee does NOTHING.

I can't wake up, either but must make the learning teaching thingys with words and pictures.

I never understood the issue people have getting their eyes dialated. Never bothers me. :huh:

      ^^ So that's the link to the WIP thread for this guy.
       
      He did not turn out to be a fastish paint job. He turned into my experiment.
       
      I put more work into highlighting the hair than I usually do. I got his bald dome more shiny than I have for past skin tones. I've done bits of freehand before, but this is the first fabric pattern freehand I've done (turned out a bit thicker than I would have preferred, but I still like it). 
       
      First NMM for me ever. I may have been better off with a classic sword or straight line sort of thing, but ehh... this turned out okay for a first shot, I think. The axes took 3-4 hours 
       
      And for good measure, I scuffed up his boots in the "sand", and put a shadow of him on the sand. 
       
      I got my nice camera rolling, but not I am re-learning it. Got a diffused ring LED attached to it for lighting. Just a piece of gray-blue construction paper in the background. 
       
      Comments, critiques, shrieks of "what in the heck is this junk?!" all welcome!

      tl;dr:  I'm painting bunnies!! (and other critters)
       
      I'm finally wrapping up my painting projects left over from December, so I guess it is time to finally decide on some things to paint in 2017.
      One of my goals for this year is to actually play some of the games I've bought figs for.
      So far finding time to get a minis game going with the gaming group has been rather slow...been passing around the Frostgrave book since the fall, everyone seems interested, but haven't moved beyond that yet.
      So, moving on to my other potential person to play against, my wife. While she like playing games, so far she hasn't found time to read the quick start rules for CAV:SO I put on her phone last summer, and her Rach army remains unpainted.
      So perhaps something...cute and furry....
       
      Burrows and Badgers seems like a perfect fit, and I've been dying to start painting them.  I've been slowly reading through the rules (the only time I ever seem to find time to read these days is when I go to bed, but then reading rules makes me sleepy...(no Michael, it's not your writing, I have partially read CAV:SO, Counterblast, MERCS and Timewatch sitting beside the bed too  )).
      And the other night I showed her pics of all the figs from the first two kickstarters. And she seemed interested.But now the problem is she wants all my Bunnies....
      Also, all the figs are 1 piece, so we can play even before all the figs are painted (I know they won't roll as well, but it will help with learning the rules).
      And I get to paint all the awesome terrain Jo has made for B&B (and I may pull some out of the other Oathsworn boxes too).
      And as a bonus, if/when we get to playing Frostgrave, I'm making a warband out of B&B figs.
       
      So, I will dig out the figs and get a picture over the next few days, then get some figures prepped for painting.
       
      Now where to start??   Maybe rats.....I don't want to do the bunnies until I get a few under my belt...

      Hakon, Iconic Skald: 60182
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This was a commission piece and one of the fastest I've ever done. Hope you guys like it.
       

       

       
      Here is the WIP for this piece
    • By Arc 724
      60182: Hakon, Iconic Skald
      Sculpted by Bobby Jackson
       
      This is another commission piece for me. The character in the Patherfinder game we are play is a Ranger who throws axes. He liked this figure so much he bought it on the spot! Said he wanted it to have a kind of coloration at Boba Fett. So I'm working from that, kind of.
       
       
       
      Edit: I sculpted the base my self. It's just a simple brick pattern.

      Hi again,
       
      still working on more Ral Partha dwarves, and here are my last two additions, two dwarves with axes, but one kind of a barbarian feel, decked out in furs and a bit of scale mail, and the other one more of a rank and file dwarf, kind of skinny and in a coat of chainmail.  I'm enjoying painting these dwarves actually, as it keeps torturing me with different armors and keeps me working on the NMM.
       
      The barbarian dwarf was kind of interesting in that I could get the white of his eyes on the left eye in, but couldn't reach it for a pupil, as he's got these big, shaggy eyebrows.  Made it a bit challenging, but I don't think it's very noticeable, especially at these angles and the other eye was very easy to do and reach.
