  1. well, I've had some good-ish news today, my sister is out of the bushfire danger area, I do have other family members (aunts and cousins) in the bushfire danger areas, but they are all ok at the moment (I'm not as worried about them as I was about my sister) We'll see what happens over the next 48 hours

  2. Just finished painting my largest model - it took me 4 different epoxies and 3 different glues but I finally found something that kept him together (JB Weld SteelStik) Not the most realistic model, but I think it has character! Hopefully I did it justice.

  3. I totally agree with you in that those particular exaggerations are not very realistic in function. This was a challenging character/figure to create because I wanted her to read as feminine but also formidable and capable. There are some key features that allow a figure to read as feminine from a distance. Large breasts, tiny waists, flowy/curvy shapes, and thin joints (elbows, wrists, ankles). Since the costuming (and the character in this case) largely hid her chest and waist, and casting issues prevent me from making overly thin joint areas, I had to get creative. One of the ways I a

  8. The Screaming Antelope is one of the core monsters of Kingdom Death: Monster. And the fact that you can get so many fine resources from it makes it one of the most hunted creatures in the setting. For this paintjob, I wanted to move away from both the grey standard color scheme for the antelope and away from the red "skinned antelope" look I've often seen. All together, I feel like this came out really well. The base is constructed from apoxie sculpt and green stuff.

  10. Take it as an incredible compliment. It means they feel safe around you and trust you with their life. This is one of mine. His belly is his favorite petting spot. And he's got a lot of belly to pet. This is actually somewhat true. One of the friends at the party comes down from Canada. He used to get stopped every time he was coming across the border. When he was told that he has to get government approval to come to these parties, he went "so that's why ever since I started coming I've been able to breeze through the border..." He said it's gone fr

  12. From what I understand, it's the taste of the yeast that make some cats love bread. Bread and toast have to be jealously guarded in this house, lest it fall to the questing paw of Loki Every single feral cat I've adopted came with the "Is it vaguely edible? That's good enough for me" attitude. Super smart little critters too- one in particular figured out how to open the child lock on the fridge and gorge himself on roast chicken. I really miss that little guy. Best, most adorable, little glutton ever.

  13. We had a new visitor to the back deck this evening. At first I didn't notice and then I realized there were TWO dark brown tabby kitties instead of only one. The second one ran off as soon as he spotted me. I fed the three girls who live here now and put a bowl out by the side of the deck in case the visitor came back. He did, and very cautiously went for the food. And then the girls noticed there was a 2nd bowl of food and that was enough to scare him off again, but I saw he only went as far as the stairs. I'm calling it a "he" because it is larger than the girls, and about the same si

  16. No one else’s answers reminded me of anything recent. (I did this Inktober Project recently but that wasn’t really much of a battle. That was so much in my wheelhouse it just meant finding the time...) A long time ago there was this technical drawing I had to do, but you kinda had to work there to understand why it was a problem. Short Version: I basically aced the technical drawing but they never really planned to let me know about it. But I found out later anyway. Christmas Eve I went over to a cousins house as a volunteer to help wrap presents. I wra

  18. Yup, I joined the RNLAF ( Royal Netherlands Air Force) in 1988, as things are I will probably retire in 2024. Warrant Officer/Chief, my field is Logistics and I'm kind of the troubleshooter, I work at the staff of the base. When things take too long or are no longer availabe, it's my job to get it anyway. Of course there are some sidejobs and the younger generation can ask me anything about how they should do things, and they often do.

  20. Couldn't pass up on Bombshell's December special so picked up a few things. The candy, and everything to the right, was a Christmas bonus. I'm attaching some shots of his latest bust. The bust is gorgeous, and a little smaller than Morihilda, so I'd say she's 1/10 scale. No cleanup, and really no assembly either. 75mm Betty and Shrapnel: I also received an order from El Greco in England with some more 54mm Landsknecht and a 75mm Limited figure.

  21. Special delivery today! A big thank you to @Glitterwolf, who always sends the best care packages. This year I got a special Christmas card, a Dutch Air Force sticker, and some of his special mind-control stroopwafels! (Thanks to the long-standing relationship between our two countries, all Canadians are immunized from the brain-whammy part of it). Again, a big thank you to a great friend!

  23. yes. USN from 1984 to 1990. Ended my military career as an Electronics Tech First Class. Technically, I'm a Gulf War Veteran because my service extended a couple of weeks into the gulf war, which is a large part of the reason why I got out. I had been planning on continuing my career in the Reserves, but there were rumors the reserve unit I would have joined was going to be deployed, so I held out to see what was going to happen, as I didn't want a deployment to interfere with my college plans. Sure enough, they were deployed a few weeks later.

  24. No. I come from a long line of Quakers and conscientious objectors. My great-great grandfather volunteered as a Private in a home guard unit in the Union Army during the American Civil War even tho he was a Congressman & exempt from service. My grandmother, an Englishwoman, traveled on her own dime to Spain to fight fascists and then when WWII broke out she fled to the US with a dead man's baby. My other set of grandparents did classified communications stuff.

  26. Meanwhile, on the other side of the great pond, I'm fairly thrilled that this year, not doing monthly orders from the US does not mean missing out on cool stuff. Promos like this are also going to mitigate the impact of the EU store being out of 'current' promo items issues. (The cat in a tree dragon never actually was available when I tried ordering during the 12 Days 2019. I missed day 1&2, so maybe there was extremely limited stock that ran out; maybe it didn't make it to the UK at all.) Less exclusive bonus items might be better for strengthening international operations,

  27. Add $40 worth to your cart and you'll see there are 12 metal figures available this month, one of them a new sculpt, the others all released previously. On Reaper Live, they said each month, they're going to add one new sculpt to the free list, and remove one of the old ones. 11 old ones, 1 new one this month; 10 old, the new one from January, another new one in February, etc. So, in December of this year there should be 12 minis on the free list, one new one from each month of the year. They said they'll change out the old ones each month as well, but I'm not sure th

It was a nice break (sort of, at least I didn't get called that much...) wish my meds had been more forgiving though would have been nicer to have been rested. Next week I get to see if they are actually working or if the last few weeks were in vain I also actually started considering what to do next year at work for both me And my group so I guess I'm ready to think about work again, but I could really use another month to consider it...

Colonels who used to fly B-52 bombers can very, very, very picky when signing off on new USAF technical drawings. Guys who used to be B-52 tail gunners have some fascinating stories to tell.

  34. Spent the last few days researching shipwrecks, dolphin attacks, and various other horrors of the deeps. I now find myself wondering what the crush depth is for a bagel or a donut. The idea being that if mermaids attack the submersible, launching a couple dozen of these into the water might distract them. Possibly even a way to bribe them into not sinking the boat/sub. "See if you don't kill us, you get tasty snacks!"

  35. Just looked on the front page, and in both the Reaper News and Reaper Discussion areas of the forum... There will be a new figure for January. But, someone making a purchase could choose from 11 of the 12 figures from 2019 instead of the new January figure. They announced/strongly hinted at/confusingly said ...this on ReaperLive this evening.

  37. Today was DEFINITELY a day for coffee. Long long day at work, reorganized and reprioritized to do list. Unfortunately, I still need people that aren't back till next week. Good news, today's Thursday, and next week isn't as far away as it seems. CPA studying continues. And thank goodness for people who make videos explaining difficult concepts. At some point, probably Saturday morning, I'm gonna try to pull out all my painted minis from 2019 and take a picture of them... NYE was spent watching Fellowship of the Ring. NYD was spent watching The Two Towers.

Brass sluice gate, warped enough to be hard, but not impossible to open, originally with sisal and asphalt seals, but those have turned into a sodden mess that leaks all around the gate. The cistern was for a dwarven canal system that was never completed. The gate they opened was only supposed to be used for cleaning, when the cistern had only a few inches of water. It was originally designed to open INWARDS, so it c

  42. Usually in the world of minis, it is the most recent. Outside of that, my lose weight project of a couple of years ago was a success. Now I can give people that tell me it is impossible to lose weight one of those looks. Not that I necessarily do, but I can.
