    Randomness XV: 'tis a silly place.

    I am suddenly reminded of the Angel episode (Buffy spin-off) where the baby is crying.... until vampy-face goes on. Then baby giggles. Baby wants a grumpy glaring contest?

    How do you paint the transparent pieces

    I use the Vallejo Transparent colors and really like them. I bought the red, orange and yellow to do some flames, and quickly added the blue and green. I use them quite a bit for spell effects.
  4. First hiccup of the binge: caught the dang cat drinking from my rinse-water cup. I use non-toxic paints, and numerous people drink from their cups all the time, but those amounts in an average 170 lbs. human vs 13 lbs. cat... makes me nervous. Called the vet, they said he should be ok, but not to let it happen again... as if a cat is actually going to listen to a human on what to or not to do... Now I have to watch him just make sure he's ok... and cut a hole into the lid to the jar I use for painting so he can't get his head inside it again. He's on my pooh-list for today... I mean, he made me have to pause Wonder Woman when Gal was strutting in slow-mo across no-man's land!

    PaizoCon 2019!

    @OneBoot A lot of local PFS/SFS people will be there, but sadly not me. I keep trying to direct them to the paint'n'take to say hi on my behalf, but so far I don't think I've managed to make it happen.
  6. Dark Shadow is a great color. I've used it for skin, but also for hair and leather.

    My tooth doesn't hurt today! Or at least it's a heck of a lot calmer than it was yesterday. There's no persistent pain, it's just a mild pain when I bite down on something. I don't even think I'll need ibuprofen! Or if I do it'll be like one or two for the whole day, not two every 4 hours like it has been for the last few weeks. D&D tonight, but we're down a player because of a wedding. Which is a bummer, because it's also the player we're losing next month when he moves to Rochester. And I took today and tomorrow off of work so that I can have a 4 day weekend and stay for the whole game tonight. Also, I need to start marinating some pork for Sunday. I've got 6lbs of country ribs that I'm gonna be hauling out to the river and cooking on a massively overcrowded portable charcoal grill. Which will basically turn the grill into a small smoker, because I can never get it truly hot to begin with. Which will hopefully make the ribs turn out awesome, because I've never done country ribs on a grill. I've always used an oven or a crock pot.

    Rackham Barbarian

    Great job! Rackham made wonderful miniatures - I have a whole Wolfen army to paint at some point. Fantastic job on his skin and armor! The receiver of this commission should be very happy.

    Something I haven't quite realized in over six months. (Kind of my fault really) When you move from one province to another, even if you stay with the same insurance company and update your policy with them, what it does is create a new policy and *not* automatically cancel the old one (insurance coverage laws vary by province). I've been paying what essentially amounts to twice my normal insurance rate. For a while I thought it was because of my new car instead of my former 10 year old car that I kept forgetting to inform them that I no longer own it. Anyway, I'm on the line with them to resolve this and get a reimbursement/credit/whatever.

    I feel left out @Crowley
  12. Most of us just keep the excess stuff you get when you buy a regiment of minis that contains extras, or minis that have extra weapons/heads etc. There are also sets of weapons and adventuring gear you could buy. I for one have bought several sets of familiars containing small animals/magical creatures to adorn bases with. Some examples from Reaper that can be useful: https://www.reapermini.com/search/pack/latest/03560 https://www.reapermini.com/search/pack/latest/03447 https://www.reapermini.com/search/pack/latest/03537 https://www.reapermini.com/search/pack/latest/03567 https://www.reapermini.com/search/pack/latest/02455 https://www.reapermini.com/search/pack/latest/02018 https://www.reapermini.com/search/equipment/latest/02963 I also advice you to visit Greenstuffworld and look at stuff like bags of skulls, tombstones, chains etc.

    Turns out my baby is a grumpy, fussy baby. Cries a whole lot for no decernable reason, wants to be held constantly, and always has a grumpy face on. I don't know where she gets it from; according to our moms we were both easy babies ( my mom was even able to bring me to classes with her). She just started crying again.
  14. Stephanie Law's Mini Pal-ette from her Kickstarter. I used to use a cheap tile from Home Depot, but I love that I can actually do glazes and washes now with this! The wells are small but deep, so it's perfect for my limited art space and they dry slower than wide, shallow wells. Hugs to the little one, @Pineapple!! -- Everything has some paint on it. I know the direction of my light source, so it's time to make some sense out of that. Roooar! More contrast!

    Getting To Know You — May 2019

    I mean, I don't wear my nice clothes (anything I'd wear to work) when I hobby, but I don't have clothes just for hobbying. It doesn't really matter anyway, most of my clothes get some kind of food stain on them no matter how hard I try to be tidy. Last week, for example, I managed to dump a whole bunch of sliced strawberries down my cleveage while trying to put them away. It's a talent of mine
  21. Maybe we should all tag @Crowley!

    On the "Monday on a Friday" type topic... Our work software/computers decided to act up. Okay, not an issue, we can print invoices... ...Wait,what do you mean we can't print PICK SHEETS.... Had to handwrite and then handpick two of my customers today, and of course they're the last minute big ones. Oh well, after today, it's two days of destroying happyland or whatever it's called in Dungeons III.

    Yeah, I'm taking this next week off for exactly that reason. Not so interested in working for free.
