  1. Past hour
  2. Department of Acquisitions and Enablement, the Second

    It's too small and the wrong shape to measure my pelvis, because I'm...........too hip to be square.
  3. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Beware Inquisitives named Copperpot and stay off of lost pirate ships... FTFY
  4. The Hunter Hunted (Secret Sophie for Vegascat) pic heavy

    I really like the colours you chose for the werewolf, they're convincingly bestial.
  5. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    Hmm... my first order still has no movement or indication of movement. It's the order i want due to all the display figures in them. Nov 27.
  6. Angie paints some Bones Skeletons

    That's a fine collection of skellingtons. A very fine collection, indeed.
  7. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    yup, exactly what happened to my email of questions asking for explanation =/ sorry to hear, they definitely have made me decide not to purchase from them again, no matter how good the deal
  8. That's a quilt square ruler! (I only know this because I quilt a little bit). The 1/4 inch seam allowance ensures that there is enough fabric left after the fabric is cut that when the squares are sewn together, they are the correct size. I'm not sure why it's only marked on two sides, though. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  9. [SPLIT] CMoN orders

    I sent them a message on Jan.8, just got a reply now. I also worded it with very specific questions so that I would know if they were really responding to them or if they were just blowing through them. Guess what, I got the exact same copy-and-paste that other forum members got. It shows that they aren't reading the messages at all, they're just pasting answers without bothering to reply to actual concerns.
  10. Currently madly trying to finish Orkz

    Cool stuff, keep up the good work!
  11. Painting Bones at work

    They're coming along very nicely!
  12. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Jan 18th: I tend to be early, with work this gives me a half hour or so to get a cup of coffee and a cigarette in before I'm actually expected to do something. Also I usually arrive before the boss does which means I can actually get things done before being interfered with. Outside of work it makes me difficult to ambush, and also since bike or public transit is how I get around, leaving early gives me some flex time is something on the bike breaks or the bus gets lost. Jan 19th: Not so much a snack, but the last week or so I have had a fierce craving for toast.
  13. Thanks for the responses. I must say I was surprised that Pacesetter Games got it wrong given they have been around for some time and Bill Barsh seems to be pretty well known. I kick myself for not recognizing the red flag when Bill Barsh was defensive of Matt Solarz. I understand that Matt made poor business decisions (and in my view misused Kickstarter funds) but it was the personal lies that irked me and now its deja vu with Bill. I don't know how these people can walk into a room.
  14. Song of Blades and Heroes?

    If the next game was with my friend who is already four games deep and knows the rules as well as I (Just from playing too, he hasn't even cracked open the rulebook once) I'd say we're both ready for spellcasters. Unfortunately the next game is with my AL group, I think I'll let them catch up before I throw spellcasters into the mix.
  15. Getting to Know You, Jan 2018

    Well, right at the moment as I type this, I'm eating peanut butter and raisins on toast. Earlier this week, I had a large container of "vanilla honey"-flavored Greek yogurt, in which I mixed the other half of my box of raisins. On the less healthy side of things, I have a bag of "caramel apple"-flavored caramels upstairs the consumption of which I've been deliberately drawing out over the past three days. They're really good, so I've been making an effort to keep from eating the whole bag at once. I probably will end up going back to the store for another bag this weekend if they're still there - I bought them for half price on clearance, which is the only reason I could justify buying them.
  16. Randomness XIII: Cognitive Dissonance While You Wait

    Woohoo, my second package from Reaper (in as many days) shipped... Only question now is whether Canada Post will have them for me on the same day or not Why two? Well, for one I ordered the wrong brush for Rune (how I accidentally ordered a 30/0 instead of a 3/0 I don't know, but still), and he also said I could get more stuff because he got a few games, so naturally I had to put that second order in.
  17. 77056 Orc Sniper with Sabre Tooth Tiger head

    The look on the poacher's face. Nice job on him!
  18. Crowley's Ghost Archipelago Warband

    Very nice work on them! I like how you've got the crew looking fairly uniform by using the same colors, but using them differently so they look like individuals, too.
  19. Storm Troopers

    It's nice to see young people working together to support the Galactic Empire! You both did great work on these. As to the bases, I find a simple gray works well. As to bases surviving being boxed, I've found that gravel bases, once you cover them in enough glue, are fairly durable. Boxes from Russel Stoffer chocolates and similar with foam added work nicely. (and give one an excuse to indulge!)
  20. Minis we would like to see

    Is anyone else over the moon about the Ben Siens goblins coming out on the 29th of January???? I know I requested more Ben Siens humanoids, and after I buy a bunch of these new releases, I will keep requesting more.
  21. West Wind SOR-G03 Tiger Mecha

    A bit more progress. Went over the remaining bits and removed mold lines and the like. I also found the variety pack of magnets I'd picked up. Hopefully the 2 big ones (on the right by the turret) will be adequate. I'm not prepared to try to figure out the center of that turret, and drill a hole, and probably dremel it out to the right size, just yet (let alone figure out the matching spot on the lower torso). Luckily anything I screw up will be completely invisible once assembled, and worst case I can always glue the torso if it doesn't work out.... But I still had some tea left so I cleaned up a bit and decided to start with the priming. I don't want too dark a primer as the base colour for the German's is a sort of brown-yellow called Dunkelgleb. Was going to go with Reaper Grey Primer but them remembered I had a sample bottle of Stynylrez primer for a previous Reapercon bag so I went with it instead, since its sort of a medium green-grey. Plan was just to prime most of the metal (not the tank commander, he has a freshly glued on head....), in most cases while holding it, so there will be a second priming session (at least). I also did a good job of priming a couple of finger tips. When I got the metals done I had a LOT left, or so I though, so started on the lower torso, staying away from where the feet meet the base, as I've got a fair amount of putty work to go on there. All that extra primer was almost enough for one leg... Someday I'll take the time and learn how to properly use my airbrush....
  22. 3d printed tiles

    Neat! I'd be interested in knowing how long they take to print, too.
