Getting to Know You, June 2018

Recommended Posts

So I tried the online Spirit Animal thing.

Spoiler

 

You‘re The Deer

Deer Spirit Animal

What It Means To Be The Deer

When you have the deer as spirit animal, you are highly sensitive and have a strong intuition. By affinity with this animal, you have the power to deal with challenges with grace. You master the art of being both determined and gentle in your approach.

The deer totem wisdom imparts those with a special connection with this animal with the ability to be vigilant, move quickly, and trust their instincts to get out the trickiest situations.

 

I wanted to Be The Goat!

June 12: Do you have a spirit animal or guardian? If you made one for fun, what would it look like?

 

There are all sorts of fun stories and types from different cultures! 

 

I'm a bear. Rawwwr.

 

Not due to some quiz or something, this is a thing that dates back 25 years. I still have some of my bear fetishes from my teenage years. I do best in life when I eat a bear-like diet (fish, nuts, honey, fruits, green things, the occasional deer carcass).

 

Now I even have a job that gets me time off on furlough every year (I hope) so I can have my 3 months of sleeping in.

I took that test and it said I'm the Veydra master pack of lenses, and/or the 12 and 16mm cine lenses.  Oh wait, that was the ad. 

 

Apparently horse.  According to them.

I once worked with a guy who was big into astrology.  After the first hour of talking with him the day we met, he says to me "You're a fire sign.  What month were you born".  I didn't know what the elf he was talking about.  I was born in August, which I knew was a Leo, but that is about it.  His only reply was "I thought so" and basically left it at that.  I later Googled the topic and he was right, so he either stalked me online, or I am somewhat in tune with an archetypal Leo.

 

My Chinese zodiac sign is a Rat.   That's pretty fitting as well.

Lion it is, then... which is only fitting... unless I messed up one of those squirrely answers that could have given me Tiger!

At least it is a Big Cat!  But really... when Danger Shows Up?  And those are my ONLY options?  And for the Chakra section... am I going from color, design, what the actual chakra is?

Probably there was no Sabertooth Tiger on the list...

Took a quiz and got an owl. Then sat here, skeptically pondering the veracity of an online quiz in determining one's spirit animal... 

 

Typical owl, suspicious of my own owl-ness...

 

Hoot.

My Chinese Zodiac sign is a Dragon ( a Metal one to be fully accurate) European sign is Virgo.

According to that website, I am a lion-virgo-rat-wolf/raven-Celtic swan.

June 8: Are you in any clubs or organizations? Have you started any?

 

Thanks again, TGP! 

 

Outside of small gaming groups, no.  I have attempted to start leagues for various miniatures games, then the companies stop supporting them (aka D&D miniatures right after Chainmail flopped).

June 9 and 10: What's your favorite way to treat yourself?

Are you thinking about doing that this weekend or soon?

 

Thanks, Crowley!

 

Ice Cream.  Painting time.  Yes to both.

June 11: What do you consider to be hidden gems in Reaper's catalog?

 

Thanks, Xiwo Xerase!

 

I'm a big fan of Abyzarran, given I painted that dragon up.  I'm also a fan of their early dwarves and their entire Anhur/Breonne army pack group.

If you're gonna be a bear, be a Grisly Bear that can fly and swim to uncharted depths, burrowing through granite as well as ice and swimming through liquid Magma.  Nowhere is safe.

I know he's a (fictitious) sentient being, but can I pick Zathras?

June 13: Where do you find mini painting or general art inspiration?

 

A place, a show, a song?

I get it from a lot of sources, namely random ideas that pop into my head... 

 

... As for inspiration to keep the flow going?  Usually mixes of some kind, sometimes favourite albums, but almost always something many would consider dark, and fast.  Mmmmmm, gabber makes painting so much fun, same with DnB (Drum N Bass).  Aesthetic Perfection has some absolutely awesome albums to paint to as well.

      It's time again for a year-end roundup of the figures I managed to finish last year. These are the figures I finished during the calendar year of 2018, which was, let me tell you, another ... interesting year.
       
      January-March

      I was absent from here for much of 2018 (starting mid-August 2017), but that doesn't mean I wasn't painting. I hope to post a bunch of pics over the next week detailing all the minis I painted before August 2018. March featured a ton of stuff for convention GMing and I also painted a bunch for Tomb of Annihilation. And just whatever I felt like.
      I'm going through stuff elsewhere to see what's been done and soon I'll be posting the list of minis (and also linking to other show-off threads).

      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.
