    Aheh. So, remember pretty much exactly a week ago I was griping about White Wolf's design problems and their rather cheesy dodging of actually explaining how to make all the vast, brilliant genius conspiracies they swore up and down were riddled throughout their creation? And then I said (emphasis added): Well, well, well, guess what just developed?

    On a tire-related note, I seemed to have dodged a bullet yesterday. When I had gotten my oil changed, the auto care center said that the steel belts were showing on the back tires and that I need new ones, which would cost nearly $400. I checked them myself and didn't see anything, and I thought it was odd that he said that, considering that they're only 4 years old from when my wife bought them for me. I decided to go to a tire center that I trusted to make sure of it, and when the technician took a look, he asked me if the auto care guy even knows what a steel belt looks like, because he said the tires were still practically brand new.

    Thats an odd question and something i never considered. I live 60 miles from nearest city and dont usually eat out. I used to cook as a part time job so any dish I really want I just cook.

    I know. It's grooming behavior. But the little guy is just such a ball of snuggles that he's gotta be hiding some insanely murderous instincts in there. You always keep an eye on the unassuming ones...

    This is my first completed Bones figure. Since spray primer is too high of a risk on ruining them and washing them didn't help the water bead up on some of my paint brands I opted for a brush on sealer that seams to work great. With this being a brain I wanted it to look gooey. So I just focused on it and did a single coat on the legs. I gave it a gooey look with gloss varnish.

    I knocked out a few figures over the past few weeks. The Iconic was the 3rd time I painted the model, so she turned out pretty awesome. The other ones were speed jobs and I love how they all look.

    I've been to a lot of different places while I was in the Navy, and I've eaten a lot of different things. What I want is to be able to get the real thing here, not an Americanized version of it.

    I can assure you that Girl Scouts get to do sewing by age 11. With sharp, pointy needles, even. I think the safest bet, however, would be to email the group leader and ask whether the kids are deemed responsible enough for the various tasks. Pain sucks and I'm done with it. So much sympathy for you, SparrowMarie, for having to push yourself so hard. I might be ready to say 'yes' to cortisone shots soon. In the meantime, more ice packs.

    11 to 17 Yeah, it would have been better for them to just be 'part of the stuff' you came with. I feel your pain there. You haven't met me yet. In the right situation, there probably isn't much difference. (And yes, this is at work.) Ooooo interesting. I might then pick it up for my husband. He is a big vampire fan. While I am most definitely a black fury. Or maybe a Glass Walker wanting to be a Black Fury. I ain't no Silver Fang I can tell you that.

    Well, finding a parking spot was WAY EASIER today. Maybe... 10 minutes? That's some fantastic news about Vampire! @Chaoswolf yes, they paid, but mostly because it was a cash only pizza place... And I didn't have any cash on me. And earthy... way way more earthy. And I may, someday eventually get tired of the elfhats and smurf brains, but it's really really hard to beat 25 minutes door to desk.... Dinner time!

    An excellent example of why I don't do customer service. I recommend against smashing things with a sledgehammer. It's not the things fault. Smash the backers instead. I would settle for most anything beyond the typical Americana cuisine. If I really want something different there is a town about an hour away with some variety, but in the time it would take to drive there, order, and drive back I can cook a lot of different things.

    I have USAA. That's why I'm not shopping around. Every time I've shopped around for insurance in the past, nothing was able to match what USAA offered. And really, $130/yr isn't that huge of an increase. I'm just poor and always broke since I'm a single guy with a $35k/yr job who owns his own house. It's not a cheap situation until the house is paid off in about, oh, 10 more years.

    I agree with what Dilvish has said. It sounds like there may be too many open lanes of vision. And are you remembering the Will roll every turn the soldier activates? It takes a long time for a soldier carrying treasure to get off the edge at half speed, so there should be plenty of time from them to break the spell with their Will. Kodak had Mind Control and I don't think there was more than handful of times it actually worked to get a treasure off the table. There are several ways to defeat this. I'd buy a grimoire of either Dispel or Draining Word. Also Fog and Wall should help blind him. Another tactic I'd try is to buy a warband of entirely crossbowmen. That would teach him quickly to keep his head behind cover. Blinding Light and Furious Quill will also help make his life harder. If you are allowing all troop types, a Bard will help keep your troops' Will high, and a Crow Master can help keep the wizard distracted with his annoying bird. Also, worse comes to worse, you are allowed to kill your own warband member who has been Mind Controlled. Edit: Also, a few well placed Bones Darts or Elemental Bolts should discourage the Soothsayer as well.

    Just finished up Garrick the Bold. Painted with Army Painter matte black undercoat, dry brushed Necron Compund then finished off with Reaper HD paints. Basing done with the Army Painter basing kit. Pay no attention to my paint fingers. comments and critiques always welcome.

    Cool! Note to self: Dick Blick art supplies often has free shipping offers. But for some reason their upgrade to what essentially works out to two-day shipping is only a few dollars on top of that. Sooooo worth it.

    Good point. We have several good Brazilian places around here (Greater Boston has substantial Portuguese and Brazilian populations), but I am unaware of any place to get Argentine cuisine. I hope you're happy. I didn't know I was missing it until now!

    Is Argentine BBQ the kind of place where they give you the Red/Green card and just keep bringing meat as long as the green side is up?

    Give it a little while; soon you'll be here griping about all the elfs, smurfs and woofs, that were doing all manner of dumb things during your commute. Yay for more painting time! I miss Dungeon and Dragon magazine. Did they pay? More technical or more 'earthy'? Not my call; it's a company machine. @knarthex---did you mean 'de-stress'?

    There are some battles not reported because I forgot to take pictures. LOL. Ya He is a nice fellow, older gentlemen. He seems to roll high all the time. Then a few times he didn't get it he just spend health to boost it to passing. He would grab treasure then walk off the edge (2 player game) closes to him that was not my edge of the table. Maybe it was just a mishap this game that set me on edge about the spell. He bragged during this last game because he just won a tournament for FG using this very strategy. :| I'm absolutely going to do what you recommended with the 12inchs. That seems like a very good idea. Note, he is a more experienced player than I am.

    You have been doing it right. The Will roll is made vs. whatever the Wizard actually rolls; so if the wizard rolls an 18 to cast the spell, the target will need to try roll an 18 or better each time it activates (adding it's Will number to the roll.) You say he casts the spell a lot, but the Wizard (and Apprentice) can only have a single figure under mind control at one time. So at most there should ever only be 2 figures the pair can control. From looking at the report, it appears it was a problem with just the one game where you opponent had the fortune to roll high a lot. Has it been a problem with every game? Do they always roll high? Also, from the photos it does look like there is not enough cover, and what cover there is is lined up in neat rows creating very long line of sights. We try to never few clear lines of sight be longer than about 12 inches. And it should be rare to find places where you can draw a straight uninterrupted line from one side of the battlefield to the other.

    4 year old tires? Must be nice. I only drive about 13k miles every year and I burn through a full set on an almost yearly basis. And yes, I rotate every few months. And I buy good tires. But by about the 1 year mark they're almost totally bald.

    Got a little more progress on him: Hair, Fur, Bow, Quiver, belt, knife The front picture shows a better view of his tunic and the texture I attempted to add. I tried for a bone handle skinning knife. I thought the quiver looked nice. It's one done yet but I like the two toned. What do y'all think?

    I'm with you. I love most of the Iconics (even if I hate painting their complicated JRPG-like designs on the minis), and they're hilarious in the comics. However, Valeros has, what, seven different miniatures already? Give me some monsters. Or at least the Iconics who don't have a ton of miniatures already. The evil Iconics from Hell's Vengeance would be fun to see.

    13K miles? What are the roads in your area made of? Lava, glass or sandpaper? I would expect decent tires to last for double that, at least, and the roads here in Norway are known to be 'abrasive'. Unless you're using 'all year' tires, of course. (They have a softer rubber mix to handle cold weather driving. Too soft for hot summers... )

    Not really a type but a generality. A proper bakery/deli. There is ONE that I really like and it's about a 45 minute drive from my home. Flyover country problems.

    Maybe spray adhesive in a light coat would work the same way? then hit that with a primer coat.. I use Armory primer which we all seem to think is Krylon self etching primer and I've had no issues on 99% of everything I've sprayed..
