Don't even get me started on DNA discipline. It's practically a Catholic inquisition over here.

DNA works whatever the way the plot needs it to.

Lunch consumed... Though not as satisfying as it might have been...

 

For some reason I'm in the mood for chili... :mellow:

  Lunch today is hot dog soup...

 

 Slice up two frozen dogs in a pan with some chopped onion and dump in a can of mixed vegetables. Cook on medium heat until the liquid's mostly boiled off and the onions aren't really crunchy anymore.

Then dump on top of two packages of beef-flavored ramen noodles, season with pepper and almost a quarter of a cup of ketchup, and then pour on enough boiling water until it all floats a little even after the noodles soak it up.

Oh, how I wish there were only two for me.

Many literary eras have their own magic handwavium that can accomplish anything the plot requires. In the early 2000's (and maybe still today), it was DNA / genetic engineering.

 

In the 50's and 60's it was "radiation".

 

I'm sure we'll have something else before too much longer.

But don't you use radiation to accomplish genetic engineering?

 

I remember reading an article about writing scifi/fantasy stories. It advised that any story is only allowed one or two big freebies as far as impossible things, ie mutants/magic are real, FTL travel, etc. Focus on the story with minimal plot gimmicks when possible. I'm not sure if "everything I write is true/possible" counts as one thing. ::P:

After reading the past few pages, I am, too. Perhaps I'll be making a trip to the grocery store soon....

For me, one of the big ones is "Enhance the image", but basic physics errors, deep and fundamental lack of understanding of distances*, ... there are so many faults that even the slightest understanding of the world could prevent.

 

* Example: In one episode of Longmire (a show I actually quite like), two characters drive from central Wyoming to northern Arizona in an afternoon. Nobody who has ever been to either place would suggest that would be possible.

I notice Arrow has had a profound lack of understanding of pharmaceuticals, yes.

 

I would call magic drugs the handwavium of the 70's and 80's.

Who here is it lives in Western Arkansas? I know there was at least one person.

 

Need to know if bothering to stay downtown Fort Smith at the Doubletree is worth the while. It's surprisingly affordable, but despite staying in that town several times I've never even driven through the downtown.

I forgive it because of the comic book genre absurdity. 

 

Others that are more real-world.... not so much.

      ^^ 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.
