June 4: Do you/can you display your geekiness at work? What do you have? Posters, Han Solo bobble head, figures that you have painted, etc?

 

Thanks, Chaoswolf!

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!

 

Thanks, Xiwo Xerase!

 

I'm not really sure.  I use multiple paint lines and the last few minis I painted weren't painted using hobby paint.  As a general color I like painting red, but I don't always use the same paints for that either.

I always take a fair-sized batch of figures away with me to paint at sea. Very glad that there are good quality plastic figures available these days, much kinder to the luggage allowance than pewter was! My fellow mariners are very tolerant of any creative hobby, but it has led to some interesting conversations with various customs authorities around the world.

Not really working now, and the place that I will be doesn't have any geeks there.

I am my rock-geekiness at work. That's why I'm there. And it is totally cool for me to bring my mineral collection to show and tell.... and put it on my students' tests. 

 

I had a note on my resume of "paints miniature figures in high detail" which got a comment in one of my interviews for the group I'll be joining - apparently they took it as a queue that I can do detail work, and they want to train me to do a specific type of mineral grain mounting. The adviser hasn't successfully gotten other students to do it - I'm going to try!

Ooooh, a  interesting one indeed. 

 

Uhm, first and foremost, I don't have a desk, so it's hard to do the poster thing, and work frowns upon us putting decals on our vehicles.  Something about them being company trucks owned by the company and all that.  I have considered the whole piece of paper in the window I put decals on, but I suspect that would be equally frowned upon... 

 

... So we all display our geekiness in various other ways, but typically by being rather talkative about it all, and our "resident LARPer" will do things like dress up for various days (Sept 19th is his favourite)... 

 

Me?  I just talk, since there isn't much of any other easy way to showcase it. 

 

Edit: does having a bunch of geek stuff shipped to the office count? :p

A) Historically: never / Currently: Nope, can’t. 

B) Posters, yes;  Bobble Head Anyone, no; Figures, sure; Die cast Star Wars ships, yes; Castle Models, yes.. ..and there is probably some other stuff. 

 

But none of those things at work. :ph34r:

I've never had a job that I can leave stuff at without it being stolen. Seriously, one time someone stole a package I had delivered here. 

 

So I display my geekiness with t-shirts. Currently I'm wearing my new deadpool shirt (the one with him riding a pink unicorn). My other favorites are my AD&D logo shirt, my Bob Ross shirt, and hubby's WoW alliance shirt. Husband shirts are comfy ^_^

Nope. But then in factory and resturant enviroments one doesn't really have personal space. My coworkers usually learn where I stand as soon as they attempt to recruit me into the fantasy football league and I ask if I can run orcs as they have an excellent running game. Within the first week, my habits of refering to Lord of the Rings as a documentary, creating conspiracy theories concerning elves, and quoting bits of 40k lore have let the other resident nerds know that their numbers have grown.

I'm sure I could, although I'm a little worried the cleaning staff would ruin anything nice I leave on my desk.  They're not supposed to touch anything on my desk, but they clearly do.

 

Around my office, I have records framed.  They're supposed to be hung up the next time we have a handyman come in (I'm not supposed to hang them myself) but they've been around my office for a couple of years now.  Sample records include the soundtracks for "Tron", "Star Trek: The Motion Picture", and "Monty Python and the Holy Grail", Thomas Dolby's "Golden Age of Wireless", Tom Lehrer's "That Was the Year That Was", and various albums by Tomita.  I really, really want a copy of "Jeff Wayne's Musical Version of The War of the Worlds" for my wall, but my father disposed of his copy years ago and the price for used vinyl on Amazon was too much.  But apparently it was rereleased on vinyl earlier this year...

Now nothing, I'm retired! (That never gets old to say).  Historically I had a picture of the Space Shuttle cockpit.  Also a pictue of me with all the Star Trek captains in uniform. (They were cardboard cutouts)

I am retired now, but when I was a working stiff, I never had a space/desk/cubicle of my own. ERGO no, I didn't have any geeky stuff on display.

I did paint miniatures for a few folks, but that was about the extent of it.

Now I have a Spook hanging by my door & a skeleton in the closet. I'm not really a geek just nuts.

Warrant Officer in RNLAF.

Some of my coworkers know that I paint minis, I have shown some pics sometimes.

But that's it.

 

I can't display stuff like that or pop culture related in my office.

On the other hand I don't really mind.

This is work, fun stuff is at home.

I can if I really want to, but I don't just because I get a wide range of people that come into my office. That and as a baseball nut, I have a pretty solid baseball theme going on already. I do have a couple of bobbleheads though (both baseball).

      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.
