  1. This is my first mini painting, just finished it tonight. I have a lot to learn, especially the correct way to dry brush. But I followed a Reaper paint kit on the steps for their minis and this is what I came up with. Once I get the hang of the minis themselves I'd like to learn to make custom bases, this one just looks awful as is. For some reason I can't get the picture to show the color true either, it's a much more grayish blue than this bright color that is shown. All in all, I'm pleased with its turn out.

  2. From Bones 3: Gug "It was a paw, fully two feet and a half across, and equipped with formidable talons. After it came another paw, and after that a great black-furred arm to which both of the paws were attached by short forearms. Then two pink eyes shone, and the head of the awakened gug sentry, large as a barrel, wabbled into view. The eyes jutted two inches from each side, shaded by bony protuberances overgrown with coarse hairs. But the head was chiefly terrible because of the mouth. That mouth had great yellow fangs and ran from the top to the bottom of the head, opening v

  12. I've got a couple things I'm really into (hoping not bad enough to be called an obsession) so I'm pretty tolerant about other's interests even if I don't share them. But I hate rabid Fanbois in anything. Seeing as reality tv and celebs have already been mentioned lots I'll go with Games Workshop. I've got a nephew that I introduced to GW and general gaming that is a huge GW nerd now. Reads all the books and wanted to argue with me about how 40K's fluff and all the books are the best thing out their for scifi now. Guess he's just never read any of the original material that they stole, I mean

  13. I'm just going to go with what Glitterwolf said, but switch out the first one for pizza. I mean those aren't really three foods. Those are dozens of foods with only three names. So with those selections I won't get bored. Dragon. They eat people. And let's be honest here, it's not like we're an endangered species or doing a great job contributing to the health of the planet. And since the question is what would improve the world, not the societies that inhabit it, I think dragons would do that rather well. Fashion. People spend so much time obsessing

  16. About the only time I even touch anything alcoholic these days is at ReaperCon. Thou I did last year put away a good amount during my FLGS afterhours ExtraLife event, but then again, so did allot of other people. It was good time for all. Reality tv is a good one as well. Why, just why is this so popular? As far as something in our hobby, NMM is a good one for me. It's a nice technique & don't get me wrong it can produce fabulous results but one of the things that got me into mini painting way back when I was 11 or so was metallic paints.

  17. You have my deepest and most heartfelt condolences. Have you started looking for a new job, yet? Outsourcing IT is usually done for 'cost cutting' reasons. It almost never works out that way... We outsourced our WAN back in the late 90s, and we were lucky; the company that ook over had a plan... We spent months going over every little subnet and checking servers, printers and everything that went beep. Then they told us how it had to be before they would take over, and we spent weeks fixing larger and smaller issues. Even after that the first

  21. Hmmmm, sports has been mentioned already, and I don't feel like just saying +1 to that (I honestly don't get just how fanatical some people can get about it)... So I'll go with how some will put celebrities on a pedestal. Still can't forget the day I apparently met the members for Sum41... Or more accurately, how I didn't recognize them or care who they were - they were a group of people, possibly friends, coming in together to have food, and even after finding out my opinion was still shrugging and letting them enjoy their meal. Don't get me wrong, if Daniel Greaves

  22. Alcohol. I can't get the reason why people drink just for fun... I also drink alcohol, but just when I have a good meal, some wine and, maybe, a shot at the end. But I don't see the need to drink when I go out with friends, and I found myself drinking soda even if I'm not thirsty... just cause "you have to drink".

  24. Finally caught up with a Wiz Kids Gelatinous Cube, which gave me cause to dig out the Bones one which came with Bones Kickstarter 2. I thought I'd put the pair of them up for a comparison. First up - the Bones one, which I'd like to call the Lime Splice. A yellowish glaze using Citadel's Plaguebearer Flesh still looked a little bland, so I thought I'd liven it up a bit with a few streaks of Hexwraith Flame. I might have possibly overdid that, as the greenish tinge removes any detail from the red interior. I'm happy with the interior detail, however. I wanted to go

  25. Reality/celebrity TV (and tv in general). What is so fascinating about other people's personal lives and (usually broccolied-up) situations that turns people into zombies for hours and hours every day? Why do people care? Watching a scripted tv show or movie for entertainment I get. It's a couple hours of fun or fantasy, or maybe even thought provoking drama, but nothing I need or get obsessed over. I have stuff to do, man. Even when I'm too sick to get out of bed I don't want to binge watch tv.

  31. “Emotes” on the various Twitch.Tv stream channels. I cannot even see them well enough to tell what the devil most of them are. (Complicated little pictures that get squashed down so small they are unrecognizable. Aj sizing = “A” is the tallest letter; “j” has the lowest descender; the emotes get smashed to fit between those two marks.)

  32. Yeah, monday... Woke at about 7am because a neighbor is kind of noisy when he starts off towards work... Managed to get a few more minutes shut-eye, then got up and took a quick shower... It's now 09:11am, and my teawater just boiled. So, breakfast, checking the news and my fave webcomics, then maybe start the search for clean clothing? Or I could just slob around in my underwear... Vacation... makes even mondays tolerable...

  34. Hello everyone! I've not been on for ages, to be honest it's been a strange 6 months and I haven't done a great deal of Fantasy painting. But I remembered I was going through sharing the Reaper models from my collection, so I thought I'd come back and add some more old photos. Long post this, a spin thtough the Reaper contributions to my Warhammer Middenheim army, which is about 700 models strong. This hapless pair of Vampire hunters or body snatchers are from the Reaper Bones range, though I converted the stake carrying assistant from a peasant with a pitchfork, as I r

  37. Clearly you haven't binged Ancient Aliens on the History Channel. I mean come on... that man's hair, how can you not be obsessed with that? Lol. Have you suggested he read Heinlein's Starship Troopers or Armor by John Steakley? Guess it depends on his age, but both good reads. If you haven't read either, incredibly similar plots, but whereas Heinlein's is more political in nature, Armor explores the psychological aspects of warfare. Depending on his age/maturity/parental approval, I would probably suggest reading Heinlein first (as it is more well-known), and Armor is a w

  39. Well, that means my Monday is in 3 days time! It's a big day here in Caledonia - non essential shops are finally allowed to open(with restrictions, obviously) I'm really glad my little patch of the world is taking the slow and steady route out of this whole mess, hopefully we should be able to avoid a second spike. The weather is terrible here(as usual) and I got soaked on my early run, so my plans for the rest of the day involve some painting, changing my hair colour and watching a couple of movies that we rented off Amazon(Sea Fever and Black Christmas).

Might nut up and offer to run something, depending what folks are wanting to do. I'm a little nervous; I just don't have the feel for 5e I'd like. In big today news: Cleaned off the paint station! I have eaten so. Much. Dust. x_x But desk is in its new spot. Mini storage is a hot mess, but. Gotta clean off the shelves that were sitting behind the desk, which are insanely covered in dirt, and get anoth

  44. A quick paint job for this one. It is intended to play the part of an anaconda, so I based the scale pattern on a green anaconda, even though it's obviously not a constrictor (the scales are way too rough). It was looking pretty shaky to start but a greenish glaze brought everything together nicely.
