Getting to Know You, June 2018

Recommended Posts

Surprise. It's me. I'm the next Quisitor too. ::D:

 

The obligatory roolz 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 (possibly) 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.

 

I will be posting late the night before as I won't be awake super early in the morning.

June 1: What are some of your personal or funny mondegreens in film, songs, or other media?

 

A mondegreen is a mishearing of a phrase and substituting similar sounding words so the phrase makes sense. 

 

Thanks, pinkymadigan!

I should probably add a date to this.

UB-40 - Take me by the Hand.

 

Due to this guy's accent I can't help hearing: Take me by the Ant.

My favourite is in a song by Clannad.  The lyrics are in Gaelic, so I don't know what they are really saying, but to me it sounds like:

 

We will eat yer budgie!

Tune to "Please don't stop the music" by a hiphop/pop singer who is the reason I have to make rules on the syllabus regarding the correct spelling of my name.

June 2 and 3: Which paint in your collection do you use the most?

Bonus! Try using the opposite color this weekend/next time you paint!

Probably Nightshade Purple. It isn't the one that gets used by highest area, but it seems to work its way onto every model. Its opposite? Like... Linen White? I use that one a lot too already!

Currently it's Citadel Macragge Blue spray to cover my Ultramarines, but after that it would be Citadel Retributor Armour (shiny gold!). I have a lot of work to do.

Almost every figure I paint gets Brown Wash applied somewhere. But then I do use a lot of browns and grays, so it's somewhat fitting there. I also find it useful when toning blonde hair down a bit. It also gets used on metals and other colors of clothing for a used/dirty effect.

Linen White is another that I abuse often since when lightly washed with Rainy Gray it is perfect for white clothing.

Stormy Gray and Rainy Gray probably rival the Brown Wash in terms of constant use.

As to the opposite, that would probably be somewhere in the pastel range and will have to wait until I get around to my ideas concerning machine gun armed fairies and other potted plant friends.

Black & white: I do a black wash then a white dry brush on EVERYTHING  I paint.

Not a single color, but I tend to use a lot of dark colors in my painting (this makes sense for bad guys, sometimes not so much for good guys).

I will attempt to do the bonus (hopefully later on today).

      Welcome to Getting to Know You, December 2018 Edition.
       
      The rules as they currently stand:
       
      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 post one... 
      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 8:00 hours and 13:00 hours GMT (UK / Europe Time: some Zero Dark Thirty hour for US time zones)
      4. Everyone is encouraged to suggest future questions to be posted via PM to me... (Or Talespinner, he started it.)
      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 can be fun...unless TMI).
      7. Weekend questions will usually take the form of two or three day quests, starting on Friday or Saturday. 
       
      December will begin ^ with such a question because the month begins on a Saturday.

      Minivember is here once again! I know that today is the 5th so I'm going to have to play a little catch up as I was on vacation until yesterday evening. Now I need to get started painting so this will probably be a shorter intro post than previous years. You may ask why the title says "The Last." Well because this is the last year that I am going to be doing Minivember. Next year I'll have a new fun thing but it will be in October instead of November because of how busy this time of year is for me. And I know that the holidays are part of the challenge but it's getting to be too much of a challenge.
       
      This year I'm going to be painting minis from Shadows of Brimstone that I have not yet finished. My goal (like every year) is to paint at least thirty (30) unique minis, one (1) for each day. While I've reached this goal in the past I'm going to push myself a little further this year and try to get all of one type of the mini painted. Some of them have up to six (6) of the same mini. I chose to paint this because I want to play the game again and this is a great time to get it done. While this is not all of the SoB minis that I have to do it is a good chunk of them. 
       
      Anyway, here's this year's calendar and I'll be posting photos as soon as I can.

      I thought this year would be my last ReaperCon. Somewhere along the line, I forgot the joy of speed painting and just painting miniatures for tabletop quality that I can use for gaming, etc. Somewhere along the line miniature painting became something that had to 'wow' or be appropriate for competition.
       
      I rediscovered my love of miniature painting at the Speed Painting, Sophie Says, and Paint by Die Roll tables at ReaperCon 2018; having 45-60 minutes to paint a miniature was such an exhilarating challenge and I present to you my fun!!!
       
      Barnabus the pirate was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Esme was a Speed Paint.
      Judas was a Sophie Says. 
      Michelle was a Speed Paint.
      Ogre was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Sekhmet was a Paint by Die Roll.
      Trista was a Sophie Says.
