Getting to Know You, April 2018

Recommended Posts

I uhh.... found a convoluted way to estimate the percentage abundance of my research mineral within its host rock? It is something that hasn't been done before, so even a calculated estimate is valuable. 

 

I also got a whole grocery bag full of sale Easter candy. SCORE!

I found a reasonably priced set of the early Warhammer Elven 8-pack of plastic archers, unpainted and unsprued.  Reasonably priced as in $8.  I was pretty happy with that.

The girl sitting in my living room working on some architectural drawings, who's insisting on cooking me a special supper since I've made her so many meals lately. :wub:

A couple weeks ago, in 1 evening I found the original (about 5 years ago) design notes for a game I am running now and a second copy of the core book for another game I am running that I didn't even know I had.

I found new minis I want to buy:

  • Ice Queen
  • Deenah, Female Barbarian
  • Astrid, Female Bard
  • Almaran the Gold, Paladin
  • Nimbar

And more paint (acquired and unacquired that is wanted needed). I need to find storage for the paint, that would be a great find about now.

I discovered there are some WH minis from the AoS era that might be useful to me for non-Warhammer purposes... The lamia-like snake ladies, if anyone's curious. ;p

Wouldn't be the first time that happened, I like the Fenrisian wolves, and I have an unsuspecting Warmahordes mini I really need to finish painting (Poor Abs, she's been sitting about in pieces for months now..)

 

Not much else comes to mind. :p

I mean, I've broken plenty of mirrors, opened umbrellas in the house all the time (a nessesity in the PNW when you have an apartment), and even walked under a few ladders.

 

I find this terrifying!

Questions for April 13:  Do you consider Friday the 13th to be an unlucky day?  Do you now or have you ever owned a black cat? 

 

 

 

13 is my lucky number. I have never owned cats, but I do rent two Russian Blues.

I found my missing bottle of Reaper MSP 09200 Harvest Brown.  Unfortunately, I bought a replacement bottle in March.  I guess that's a sign I should point with Harvest Brown more.

How does one rent a cat?

Me.

 

Answers to all the questions I missed last week:

yes

no

maybe

8

combat boots

Apply in whatever order makes the most sense...

...or don't, it'll likely be funnier that way.

      I was at the 2018 Adepticon in Schaumburg, Illinois last month helping out at the Reaper Paint & Take tables.
       
      I took pictures of the stupendous international Crystal Brush competition entries and other minis and terrain with an eye towards the interests of the people on this forum. Also some fun cosplay and miscellaneous interest.
       
      I can't guarantee my photographs are great. I was using two cameras with very different capabilities and strengths and I am not a professional photographer. Some of the pictures use a very harsh flash because it allowed for super sharp enlargements of detail, something I thought painters here would be interested in.
       
      I didn't know which entries would win the Crystal Brush competition, and as it turns out I missed the third-place winner. I have got pictures of the first and second place winners.
       
      So to begin with, here is this year's first place entry, "Apocalypse", a diorama by Michal Pisarski.
       
       
       
      And this is the second place winner, "The Name of the Wind", a diorama by Sergio Calvo. My pictures of this are not so good, I'm afraid.

      Looks like it has rolled back around to me.
       
      The roolz:
       
      The obligatory rules posting:
       
      1. Every day, or so (unless I am out or ill or something) I will post a question.
      1.5. If I fail to post a question, Inara will post a question of her own choice.
      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
      3.5 (Rule 3 may be the 2nd most broken rule.)
      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.
