I am a bit of a Museum fanatic. I adore a "GOOD"/"GREAT" museum. I have been fortunate to have traveled, and discovered The world's great Museums. The Metropolitan, the Frick, the Guggenheim, and the Whitney Museums in New York City were amazing. The Philadelphia art museum, Chicago's Museum of art (they have the Original Portrait of Dorian Gray (Ivan Albright) and his brother on display in the central hall (Creepy), San Diego's "El Prado museums, The British Museum, and the Victoria and Albert are mind blowing. The Vatican is a museum unto itself (as is Saint Peter's Basilica), and the Vatican Museums. The Munk Museum, the Vegiland park filled with statues by Gustav Vegilland, Fram Museum, Kon Tiki Museum, and the Viking Ship Museum all in Oslo, Norway. Whenever I travel; if I am going to have the time, I go to the local museums. It tells you so much about the people, and what they are about. I once took my 17 year old son on a (self created) tour of the Metropolitan if he agreed to go with me. I did the "Bordello Tour"... I got him in front of every nude painting and statue in the building. I don't know if he was impressed with the art, or that I knew where they were all hiding ! ROFL. Museums are good for the soul.

    So here's something y'all should find amusing... Has anybody seen this arm in one of the BoGs? I currently own the female half of Ral Partha's 02-130 Dae-Shiru Command set (Asian-themed wemics, basically) - minus her right arm. I fished her and one sprue of accessories (unfortunately the accessories for the other figure, lol) out of a box of loose stuff at the Citadel years ago. I just now happened to be organizing my miniatures and decided to look up what her missing arm looked like. Only to discover that I had also fished that arm out of the box about a year apart from the rest of her... And tossed it in the Box 'o Goodwill. If it's still in one of the boxes and somebody comes across it, would you let me know?

    Well, that’s unusual.. The post office delivered the package early. Generic Fighter box was on my porch when I arrived home from gaming tonight. I plan to have a good rummage tomorrow. *squee!!!*

    This is a mastaba, "Egyptian Tomb IWS-EGY-011," from Itar's Workshop and two identical columns, I'm not sure where from. The old Ral Partha mindflayer and Reaper's Merith of the Flame are included for scale. "Mastaba" is a comparatively modern Arabic word meaning "bench." The original Egyptian hieroglyphs read "pr-djt" or "pr-djed" and meant "house of the afterlife." The hieroglyphs are gibberish (some are even sideways), which bugs me in a minor way. Just as a side note, the mastaba is hollow with a reinforcing partition in the middle. I lined it with green felt with an idea to storing related minis inside. My husband has been referring to it as a dice cup.

    Yesterday's party was ok. There was food and snacks and drinks. Most people were alright and it made my girl happy that I attended and kinda liked it. Got a nice conversation with a woman who's husband is also in the Military, also..she works at the bakery where I buy my bread. Another nice woman I already knew works at the butcher's so important to keep these gals on my good side.. Also met an obnoxious guy who's every second joke was about nsfw stuff. After the party my girl asked me if I liked people or not. I told her yes about the women, and no about this guy. She then told me this guy had been laid off because he had harassed a female coworker at his former job. I know understand why I immediately resented the guy. Oh well, Today Youngest Vixen's 19th Birthday!!! Reaperbryan has a new position at Secret Weapons Miniatures, he occasionally visits these forums now as Dr. Wyrm. Good to hear you had fun with hiking. I have been on a 4 day vacation with my girl in Monschau and we have walked some trails there. Beautiful environment, will post pics as well soon. Germany's Eiffel is a beautiful environment. We will go back for certain one day. Also...great Schnitzels and Wild Boar in Red Wine, not to mention the freshly baked Apfelstrudel... ***Drools***

    Ought to put out the word to have somebody fish it out for you and send it back, dude. That's a shame to let it slip away like that, and I can't imagine anybody'd have a problem with that. Meanwhile. Yet another day on the construction crew. Such as it is lol. 19 40-ft trusses went up. Got the back half of the building all framed up I reckon--the restrooms, nursery, office, etc., with just the sanctuary still to go. I imagine the walls for it, and probably a few trusses, will go up Monday. And then the weather gets iffy. Meh. My fat broccoli is toasted tonight. I stuck it out 'til ten after eight and all the work was done, but I was nigh useless toward the end lol. Got home and ate supper and popped a much-needed painkiller, and it's got me a little stoned. Trying to gear up to get bathed. Been try for two hours now lol. Lol. Lolol. Lololololololololololol. Lol.

    Here is my GenCon diorama entry. Made first cut, but did not place. I was surprised it made first cut actually since there were numerous good entries in this category, including couple of Niceman's dioramas. I photoshopped a black background but it looks a bit cheesy. I might try to use a black background for a picture later...

    Nah, the really good trophies are the ones that welt up all nice and pink around the outside with a jaundiced yellow on the inside within a couple minutes, before turning black a few hours later. They then slowly go through the whole spectrum over the next 3 weeks to a month. That's when you know you got caught square in the fleshy bits that didn't have any armor by a very well executed shot. It's also when you know you need to learn to defend those areas better. Just ask my left thigh. It knows all about those. It got 3 of them stacked on it within a couple inches of each other in very short order one day. Almost the entire exterior of my thigh was black for a week. A doctor friend of mine who saw it even told me that if I feel any pain without pressure being applied that I should head to the ER, because it would have been possible that severe blood clots could have formed there or that I'd suffered more serious vein ruptures than just an average bruise.

    Not to throw petrol on a potential conflagration, BUT, I seem to recall that "The House of Windsor" started when a branch of the Hapsburg's was invited to assume the Throne of England when the then current line failed. I see [from my definitely American perspective] this bringing the Windsors back closer to the genetics of the British People. Besides, they make an awesome couple.

    I do! So much so that I took a pay cut to work at one!! Growing up, I lived across the street from a small natural history museum, and loved the bug displays in the basement. The arms and armor selection of the NY Met is always a joy to visit. The Smithsonian Air and Space of course. Gotta plug the Intrepid Sea Air and Space museum's space shuttle Enterprise exhibit. I visit that one weekly. If I was going to create my own museum? I'd reopen the Higgins Armory Museum. If that wasn't doable, I'd open a museum for us. Museum of Miniature Sculpting and Painting.

    Not the best pictures but I like how it turned out. Constructive criticism appreciated.

    The thing I love about that beagle photo is how it seems to show off the personality of each dog and how easy it would be to transfer to a human character. From left to right: The serious one with the eyes, the noble one with the stance (should be leader but for...), the charming one with the grin, the clever one who has you all worked out

    Looks like we’re still having picture problems...I pulled a Dragon Rampant game out of the portable set today for my son and one of my old friends. Bringing the boxes along was worthwhile.

    What in the name of Boneparte's balls is all this about? I'm hearing that a senior member of the Royal Family is planning to wed some colonial female. I just don't know what's going on with this country. This however makes more sense. Marvel's first super dog group

    I want to add that visiting museums is best when you're with someone who really loves the topic and is knowledgeable about it. You are with a super happy person, and sometimes they point out errors! The Smithsonian got a fact wrong about my rock specialty. Not bitter.... nope nope... not at all....
