Mere typo, or menacing threat? Only time will tell...

Well, I was apparently the only who tried to figure this out ahead of time, and none of the ideas I presented were used. Instead, the dumbest idea was used and two of our crew were killed. 

 

Then we were informed that oh yes, at least three of the ideas I presented would have worked.

 

After i expressed my frustration with the decision making process, I took out the rest of my frustration on the cat. He got brushed rather a lot.

did the cat get promoted to tactical officer?

I'm pretty sure Hubby is reluctant to kill my characters because of other people's stupidity. Now, if I do something stupid, that's different. Being married to the DM does have its benefits.

Yea, but remember how he said he was going to kill you last? He lied.

Well, that pretty much sucks!

 

Hopefully, in the future they will listen to you a little more.

You know the old gamer mantra of how the best laid plans never survives an encounter with the PCs.

 

Turns out the survival rate of bad plans is just as bad. :zombie:

So when you say two of the crew were killed, does that mean NPC crew or PC crew?

NPC crew. Really made me quite salty, cause we'd managed to go through quite a bit without loosing any of them. 

 

I'm hoping to find a rod of resurrection or something in this asteroid. Hubby likes to tell us about all the loot we miss because we don't look around, but this time I'm gonna look in every nook and cranny in the danged rock. No one kills my crew :angry:

 

 

Yeah. The cat got brushed really well in Saturday. It's kinda amazing he has any fur left.

Were the two crew members who died wearing red shirts? If they were, then there's nothing you could have done to prevent their deaths. It's a genetic condition.

      So these are a couple of "mantis warriors" which I'm painting up as thri-kreen, the insectoid race from the Dark Sun and Spelljammer D&D settings.  They are Reaper's 03552: Klichik, Mantis Warrior (the taller one), sculpted by John Winter, and 03142: Zizzix, Mantis Warrior (the squatter one), sculpted by Michael Brower.
       
      Here they are for scale (and unassembled) with Reaper's 03155: Vandora Waverunner, Pirate, sculpted by Bob Ridolfi.

       
      Straight out of the package they have a very flat silhouette.

       
      Here they are assembled, primed, and washed with thinned-down Burnt Umber.  I gently bent some of their limbs forward to ease the flatness a tad.

       

       
      One source said all thri-kreen were golden brown; another said they were earthy shades of red, yellow, and sometimes green.  I decided to paint the taller one red and the shorter one yellow.
       
      I mixed some dull, opaque colors using Iron Oxide Red and Yellow, each mixed with a greying-down blend of browns and white, and brushed them on thinly.
       
      As god is my witness, this thing is not so pink in real life.

       
      I painted this same yellow on both of the creatures' bases.

       
      Then I washed over them with some thinned-down Burnt Umber.
       

       

       
      To be continued!

      This was originally a birthday present last year, a fairly simple German resin ship kit for a medieval-style cog.
       
      Since I was playing a Githyanki in Dungeons and Dragons at the time, I modeled, painted, and sewed the vessel up into a more or less spelljammer, since named Black Moon's Bane from events in the game.
       
      There is a fairly detailed Work-in-Progress thread for this ship, if anyone has questions about materials or techniques. Or you can ask here; that's fine.
       

       

       

       
      A list of materials: Resin ship's hull model, wooden dowels, bamboo chopsticks, bamboo kitchen skewers, acrylic paint, brass wire, silk organza, silk taffeta, wooden furniture peg, jewelry findings (barrel clasps, jump rings), jewelers chain, metal necklace charms, glass seed beads, waxed linen bookbinder's thread, waxed linen carpet warp, silk buttonhole thread, cotton twine, metallic polyester yarn, nylon cord, screw eyes, 1/2" zinc fender washer, various glues
       
      The bowsprit (left) is a bamboo chopstick painted and wrapped with brass wire. The hatch on the deck (right) looks down over a forested landscape.

       
      The ship's rails are painted with (imaginary) red runes on black, then washed over thinly with silver metallic paint. From some angles the rails look silver and the runes are invisible. From others they show clearly.

       
      The ship's wheel (visible at the upper deck on the stern) is a charm bracelet charm with the hanging loop filed off. I nailed and glued it to the post (made from a furniture peg) so that it spins freely. It is mounted on a small fender washer so it can be moved around the ship. The runes around the door to belowdecks are imaginary.

       
      I may think of more stuff to say later. Right now I'm a little dazed.
