    I thought about the electric tea lights as well. That seems to provide enough light through the piece to really improve the contrast for photography. GEM
  3. Except I'd have to raise all the doors to clear the new floor level plus get a basement stair back to grade. But, acquisitions, acquisitions... uh... my daughter's team got their first volleyball win? Which we missed seeing because of a miscommunication of the time.

    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I've been on prescription pain killers for the better part of 10 years now. Walking the line between how much pain can I tolerate today and just reaching for the bottle of pain killers is a constant concern. Being able to take one non-prescription capsule as an addition to my daily vitamin regimen and have an additional level of pain relief for the better part of the day is a blessing. As to the situation with employers using the use of "regulated" medications as a reason for firing people, there is little that can be done to stop it. And if an employer really wants to be rid of you, why would you want to continue to work in an actively hostile environment? GEM
  5. Finished inventorying all my minis. nothing missing, no doubles. I am happy I did expansions first because I was able to reuse the zip bags for the core set. Ill check for miscasts later this week and next, and at the same time do minor gluing. So far pretty happy all around, no disappointment other than I should have got more square bases, maybe bases in general. Supper happy with the grey scheme as I CAN SEE DETAIL!!!! As opposed to the blinding light that is white bones. A few minis of course need repositioning. Now the fun part of checking for miscasts is Ill get an opportunity to see what minis I want to clean and start painting. Only thing i had to fix was the cave spider from darkreach, front right leg broke off, oh and does anyone know if the spider is glued on, only because painting the base and it separate would be great, or placing the spider on any terrain other than the base.

    Not really. They can still disallow employees from using as part of their employment contracts. At best, they'll make it like alcohol where "as long as you're not using on the job" and blah blah blah, but then they'll just make the claim that "so-and-so was high at work" and force a blood test. And because it's something you can test positive for for weeks after using, it's going to be hard for an employee to prove that they weren't using on the job. It'll be a long, long time before companies let it being legal stop them from firing people over it. After all, I've seen people being fired over painkillers that they had a prescription for. My roommate's girlfriend uses it for her various disorders. She said that it's made her quality of life much better than it was. Another friend has used it to help with his chronic pain.

    Non-mini project: restoring an old poster

    Perhaps a complete overcoat with a spray varnish as close to the gloss level of the original paper as possible? Sounds like a neat project. GEM

    Could always light it the way I did my wraith:

    5x7 Dungeon Card Set

    This has grown to the point where it looks like a nice solo game. Up to a 23 card set with lots of potential for replay. GEM
  10. She's so beautiful. I think this is the figure I'm most excited for. It's almost enough to make me wish I'd gotten two, even though I don't like painting the same thing twice.
  11. Redacted, wow, I didn't know Mueller and Barr were on the forums

    Getting to Know You for April 2019

    Bugs Bunny.
  13. The Dollar Tree bags I bought aren't from Safari Ltd, they're "Creatures of the World" from Imperial Toys (website imperialtoy.com). The farm animals are set 46093, the dogs and cats are set 45645.
  14. I was lucky enough that all the little resealable baggies in my Fan Favorites and Dreadmere expansions were very nearly enough for every multipart mini in both those two sets AND the Core. I did end up assembling a small handful that only needed a single piece attached so that I didn't need to go buy more. Huzzah! --OneBoot :D
  15. The other way to fix that, which seems to be more expensive but less problematical, is to float a couple of layers of cement on top of the slab which levels everything. It's pricy and renders the area useless while it's drying but it does give a level floor We replaces the rec room carpet with laminate and wound up having to use a foam filler and a weighted roller to level the floor but I don't know if that's available for tile.

    Bugs Bunny and all of its unvarnished humour is what I grew up on, and Scooby Doo as well. Power Rangers are just a ripoff of Voltron, and I will stand by that opinion.

    On the suggestion of our family doctor wife and I have both tried products made from the Hemp Oil. It has been beneficial for both of us, me for my arthritis through the oil in a capsule and her for a persistent spasming muscle group in her back through the application of a cream containing the oil. Our pharmacist started stocking medical grade certified product shortly before it was recommended we try it and he is hardly able to keep it in stock as the word gets around. GEM

    Reapermini New Site Layout

    Is anyone else constantly having to re-sign in EVERY time they come back to the site, despite checking the remember me box every time they do so? About half of those my browser prompts me to update my saved password....even though it hasn't changed since the site updated. EDIT: Man I feel stoopid, my browser was doing this. It hadn't saved my login and my new password correctly, but it appears that I've fixed it now.
  20. That point is covered by houses, too. Two (?) summers ago, wife and I tore out the lovely carpet in our living room that was short white with dark green and red sprinkles, aptly named Christmas from the paperwork left from the previous owners, in order to lay down tile. It's the "ground" floor, and so front door to back saw a lot of shoe traffic. There was just one problem with putting tile over that slab. They hadn't poured it level! OMG! It looked like what happens when a cavity is filled with PVA and dried! The edges of the concrete lift up about a half inch from the rest of the floor. And with 18" tile? That's now a ramp. Couldn't see any way of fixing it other than hours of grinding with a diamond blade. Decided I'd rather tiles break later and then be repaired with grout rather than attempt to burn down the house.

    Of those, Bugs. But the Roadrunner is better than any of them.
  22. Today
  23. I tried to do an inventory of the Core set tonight. I was not properly prepared. I've got bags with both bagged figures and loose figures. I'm going to need some small bags now, since I'm not an assembler type person. That, or a lot of squishing one figure to where I can see it in the bag, check it off the list, then try to find the next one. Or more simply, tape the bag after opening it. Yeah. The simple solution always comes to me after I've complained about things.

    Ya know, nicotineless tobacco was not a popular cigarette choice. People aren't smoking it for the flavor or the ambience... Prop 420 was the bill that legalized medical marijuana in California. However, you can still get canned in any state if they find it in your drug screen. If the federal government ever legalized it is would make a positive mess of so many corporate rules... poor babies. I really hope I live to see the day.
