  1. Past hour
  2. It makes me want to play a DOOM RPG.
  3. Zombicide: Green Horde

    USPS and UPS notify me when packages are enroute. I never setup this feature for FedEx. I just went to do it on mobile and didn't see an option to do so.
  4. Index of Painted Reaper Figures

    Bones: 77591: Frost Giant King
  5. My younger boy is like that. Easily hurt and gets over it quick. The one day when I was checking him out I told him someday he'd find out what real pain is so he better toughen up. Great kid but wimpy. I was a bit wimpy myself when little but got toughened up in my teens. I'm no tough guy but I've got enough old injuries now to ache most of the time without doing anything. What was scary about the baby is that she wouldn't move the arm at all. It was just hanging dead beside her.

    you make it sound like a punishment....
  7. CMON Rising Sun

    Look what showed up unannounced today:
  8. Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    Stuff I picked up from the lot of minis that Mad Jack has been identifying for the FLGS. I only paid $45 for the lot.
  9. Today
  10. Redjacks...something or other. But I don't know if that's "X" Redjacks, or Red Jack's "X".
  11. A highly sophisticated tv show dealing with the complicated mechanics of design and physics. Seems legit. Let's try it!
  12. 77514 Iron Golem

    I hope my tetanus shot is still up to date...

    Wish I could be there, but I'm out camera shopping with hubby so I can do a big miniatures purchase if there's anyone on when we get back, I'll pop in! Edit: I'm not saying this in a bad way, it's more of an "I owe him" alongside it will quite possibly allow me to get a LOT more minis and stuff this month...
  14. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    I gave my cousin's 9 year old a bear hug and picked her up while she was playing Supergirl at Thanksgiving, because I was being Metallo at the time, and she did the same thing. She was crying and saying I hurt her elbow. My cousin just shook his head and told her to suck it up because he saw the whole thing. Five minutes later she was running around as Supergirl again like nothing had ever happened. A bit different than a 4 month old, but it's something kids will do forever. Also, work sucks tonight. 10 hour shift, solo, on a Saturday, and a local concert venue is having a big show that they're expecting about 350-400 people for. And the expected turnout is such that they have 4 or 5 people working security at the door, with metal detector wands and full pat downs. This is the first time I've seen that done there, and I've been to a few shows myself. It may sound bad, but I think it's because shows like tonight(a rap show) attract a vastly different crowd than the shows I go to(rock shows), and one crowd is more likely to have issues with people pulling stupid macho crap than the other. And if that's the case, that means that my night is very likely to get more than a little interesting...

  16. Happy Birthday, Volksfest!!

    Much birthday happiness to you!!!
  17. 77001: Skeletal Spearmen: I have returned

    Way to jump back in. These will make awesome cannon fodder for a game. They look fine as is, but if you were to tweak them I would suggest darkening the color of the spear shafts to make the gold tips pop.
  18. Happy Birthday Orbquest!!!

    Much birthday happiness to you!!!
  19. I did a major buy of Reaper paints this summer. Still have about 50 more, mostly the Bones and HD paints on my wish list. Thinking I won't get all of them but there's still around 20 that are must buys. I'm enjoying having the variety even though there's a bunch I haven't used yet. I'm deliberately picking things out of my normal range just to mix it up a little. So last night I managed to hurt my 4 month old's arm. Over 30 years of experience with baby's and that's the first time I've done that. We were worried about a possible dislocation of the elbow or shoulder. I have some first aid training and a pretty fair amount of experience with various joint injuries. After consulting a couple of nurses on the telephone and my own observations we decided to not take a late night trip to the ER. It's 50 km to the nearest hospital and for a small baby they'd likely send us on to the big hospital another 100 km further. She didn't seem to be in much pain so we waited until morning to get her checked out. As expected the local doctor couldn't figure out any more than I could. Something with her upper arm bothers sometimes. Because she didn't want to use the arm he advised going to the big hospital. We drive to the ER there and she gets a full exam from 3 different doctors including x rays. Nothing obviously wrong but she fusses when flexing her elbow and doesn't want to move that arm. Pediatrician did a quick maneuver designed to reset a dislocated elbow even though they weren't sure that was the problem. Hurt bad enough that her mom almost cried too. Didn't seem to fix anything so we made arrangements to see an orthopedic specialist next week. Pediatrician said that it doesn't look serious and there's a chance that it will sort itself out. A few hours later we get home. Mom's feeding her and she started to use her arm. Now she's behaving like it was never hurt in the first place. Still feeling kind of crappy about making a stupid little mistake that gave us a lot stress but so relieved that it seems to be ok now.

    Cool. I like the transition from shark colors to human colors. Well done.
  21. Most of the Bones 3 graveyard decor

    I would like to know the colour pallete too. They are marvelous!
  22. I got the base started yesterday: The Tree received its DAS bark later in the day: AND now the basic groundwork is done. It is primed & ready for painting & detailing. While I still am mulling over a possible urban setting, this one does look good with the mini & has plenty of space for a flunky or two,

    Hangin' out again....
  24. Enigma Oz-Zuh, Moon Face Inspired DIMS Variation

    Yesterday was an up sort of day & consequently I forgot to do a few things....like update this thread. SO I started a possible base for Master Moon Face: ...did the bark up in DAS Air Dry Clay: The groundwork was done last night & the beasty got primed today: The base will get some further detailing & then some paint. If I use this one for Master Moon Face, it has plenty of room for a funky or two.
  25. Zombicide: Green Horde

    As someone who's shipped and received with all three nationwide for my business for the last decade plus, I can tell you that it really varies by region, local area and even individual driver. I don't do enough business to get bulk rates with any of the carriers, plus I only ship a couple packages a day and I tend to be on a first name basis with most of my customers, so I try to use the best option for each customer I'm shipping to. There are areas I don't like to ship FedEx because UPS is better, and vice versa. USPS is the most consistent, but I don't use them as often as the others because I have to use a Credit card to ship with them, which means I have to expense to my customer, instead of just putting on their account. Sounds like you have an area where FedEx is the worst option. There are areas where they're better than UPS and USPS, hard as it may be to believe.
