  1. Here are a few celtic warriors I painted up for the celtic themed rpg campaign I am starting up. The two on the left are the villain and his right hand man, and the warrior on the right is my character. The belt pouches and quiver strap are GS

  5. Has anyone else ever come up with an absolutely brilliant, phenomenal character idea with such perfect personality and backstory, only to realize... You have nothing to use them in. And then you begin forming a whole new story, just so you can use this character. What can I say, we geniuses have it hard.

  6. The current center-piece of my Demonic Army, a Balrog "Balor." This is "Errtu, Balor" from the Legend of Drizzt D&D Board Game. I painted him up about a year ago and he was one of the first huge minis I ever attempted. There's a lot that I wish I'd done better looking back on it, but you have to make mistakes to get better!

  7. Well that was interesting. The CT scan showed some growth, maybe? typical experience says that the error margins for these scans for me has been about 5 mm and the growth was 3mm. This was also the first time the dr didn't use one of the 2 contrast dyes. all of this means that something or nothing could have happened. (Team chaos for the win) Anyway, the doctor did agree that it wouldn't hurt to take a month off between thanksgiving and new years so that I can heal some of my skin issues and feel a little better before restarting the medication so at least I don't have to worry

  8. Well, that didn't take long. Already hit my first snag on the "gnolls steal tanks" idea. Or more appropriately, Toghara appears to have run into a snag... ^he's as tall as that piece is wide o_O I'll get a thread going once I get my desk cleaned up, and start on various things. But yeah, maybe gnolls don't quite fit 1/48 scale minis, and 1/35 might have been a better choice. Blacktongue doesn't fit in the hatch of the LAV either, hmmmm. Either I'm about to wind up posting in Chaoswolf's conversion thread sooner or later, or I'll have to rethi

  10. Pretty sure the kids in Grump's afterschool game have just met with the ogre that annoyed Julie so much. She wasted half an hour before realizing that ALL he was doing was wasting her time, and enjoying it. Which confirms my suspicion that we will be meeting him again. A smart, annoying, SMUG bastard of an ogre,

  12. Feeling down is pretty easy this year. With all the changes we've all faced in 2020, it's pretty much a sure thing everyone has hit a low point. Weather, Covid, economy, riots, news cycles, social media, isolation, stay-at-home orders and on and on. So many things have changed in a single year. My motto this year has been, "it could be worse." Each time i hit a wall or feel like I'm dealing with a lot, i try to put perspective on my situation. Everyone has to face struggles and some are harder than others, but when your in the moment it can feel like you're dealing with somet

  14. Hmmmmm. It is definitely NOT listening to depressing music…. It is almost never talk it over with friends / family / allies. ( None of them want to hear me whine . . . ) I guess I try different things until something works: Give up on what is depressing me and do something, anything else ….? Ignore a problem until it goes away (sometimes no matter what ya do ya make it worse so, do nothing) Create something; draw; sketch Stare at things 1000 yards downrange until the sad goes away… or at the walls Sleep it off

  17. Add an oversized engine, back tires, exhaust, and an 8 ball shifter after cutting a hole in the roof like the gnoll tore it open. When in doubt as to scale, I find going the route of Ed "Big Daddy" Roth works well.

  18. That probably would have been wiser, I agree. The more I think about it though, the more I'm seriously getting "Challenge accepted" vibes. Not going to lie though, there is some nervousness about such a task, but on the other hand whenever have I liked an "easy" project.... Definitely going to be interesting to reshape that gnoll on the left in the pic with the LAV though - he's the one I want as my driver! I have a distinct suspicion I'm going to need to pick up a saw... Well, that or a Bones version of Toghara. Hmmmm, gotta think a touch longer on that one. Ooo

  21. I don't think I have a "best" way. Just the occasional coping mechanism that have their own drawbacks. Like over eating, or spending way too much time on YouTube. Exercise does help, but properly done it takes a lot of time. And I don't like feeling sweaty afterwards.

  22. Exercise. Preferably something that requires me to be focused on what I'm doing and present in the moment, not something that lets me turn my mind off and run on autopilot (cause then moody thoughts happen).

  24. [Sigh...] Yes. I have plenty of character concepts I want to play, but don't have a F2F gaming group in the area. Latest idea is a good-natured dwarf professional barber/beard groomer. He'd have some skills in alchemy and nature to come up with new salves, beard oils, perfumes, and the like. Make every client feel like a king/queen.

  25. Wow!? For the first time Tamiya products utterly fail me. Tamiya Mark Fit (Strong & Regular). I've been a Mircoscale & Walther's user forever & figured I'd like to try some modern products dealing with modern model decals. Strong is suppose to be like Microscale red & it doesn't even soften a decal. So now I've got to try & find my bottles. Hopefully I can find em later tonight or tomorrow & the decals I applied will conform after they've dried..ugh. It doesn't help the decals I'm using are old & hard to apply, even thou they are from the top company in

  26. Sad: Angels - Sarah McLachlan - reminds me of my mum who died as a result of a car accident For My Fallen Angel - My Dying Bride Happy: There are a few, but I can't think of any off the top of my head There's also a Theatres des Vampires song that goes like that...can't remember what it's called though, I think it's on their 'vampire chronicles' album Of which the Inkubus Sukkubus cover is a significantly better song That's it...see aforementioned Theatres des Vampires song, former housemate called it the 'scary smurf' song

  27. So I'm at the stage where I need the decals for this kit I'm working on. It's been months since I saw that sheet. As I bought the sheet from a modeler off a board I'm no longer a part of. Anyways, I got the decals & put them in a "safe" spot & of course they went missing. I opened a box today & there they were & even in a plastic sleeve I stuck them in to preserve them so yah I'm feeling this right now. Off to the garage!!!

  28. WHO DISTURBS MY SLUMBER?!?!? Oh, right it's you @ManvsMini, well I guess I forgive you Here's a word which is applicable for today- "Drookit" As in, this neko was definitely drookit when they got home from their run this morning. It was also blawin' a gale and ah slipped an fell oan ma hip which was embarrassing cos the park was totally hoachin' wi dug walkers. Here's a photo of a fellow drookit Scot, he wears it a lot better though We actually use that word a lot here! It's funny how many of our word

  29. Oooh, I've been wondering what colors would be in this! I hope there will be individuals offered. I've got six of those, and feel that the "Clears" are for a different type of painter than I am--So I'm only keen on three. Still, it's great that Reaper is releasing these sets! I hope they continue.

  31. I think some of those things would have to be added by the military before it was stolen. I don't quite see gnolls hot rodding a stolen vehicle, however, since I'm taking Borderlands and what little I know of Mad Max as inspiration... They very well may have done just that.

  33. I don't get down very often, but when I do these are what help most. First, I need to be alone. My wife struggles with this as when she's down she wants to be around people. But I need time by myself to recharge. If I can be at the track it fixes everything. I don't exaggerate when I call it my Happy Place. As soon as I arrive all of my outside stresses go away and it is like being in a completely separate world. If a beach is available, a couple hours there will do me a world of good. Doesn't need to be nice and sunny. A cold blustery day with big waves is awesome. If it

  34. I don't know if I have a 'best', but I do have several different things that I do. Music, exercise/strenuous physical labor, reading a good book are all things that can give me something else to focus on.

  35. I've been dealing a lot with stress and depression the last few years. Not sure I've come up with a best way. TGP's list is similar to mine. When it's at it's worst I try to just ignore it and focus on anything that let's me forget. When it's not so bad I'll go visit one of a few people I'm close too who have the same issues and we share our troubles make each other laugh. I like sad music and often watch war movies that can be depressing and that helps in it's own way too. Knowing there's people out there that have managed to get through much worse situations helps to get moving again. Physic

  39. For the idea that started as "gnolls steal tanks, mischief and shenanigans happen" idea that will see things with a bit of a Borderlands vibe to it.... Two orders came in today... - Tamiya 1/48 JGSDF LAV, as well as Type 10 tank - WizKids Gnoll packs x3 (all three of them) - Blacktongue and two other Bones gnolls (forgot which ones they are) - Krokuta. Yup, a second one, because this one's GOT A TANK! Oh yeah, and a cameo of my spray booth too.

  41. That was how my witch in Grump's Regency game began. He wrote in a split, so I would get to play her, and seduce the Prince. He wrote in a romance plot, just so I could use her. When we left off, she was just about to give birth to their first child. If and when we pick up that game again, the Prince and I will be King and Consort, since the King his father was killed in the last adventure. Nudging Grump back in that direction is part of why I wanted the Archvillain not-mind-flayer ship. The next campaign is the next generation, I think and it will no long

  42. It's often entirely based off of what else I'm doing. For example, I don't consider "Zombie" as covered by Bad Wolves to be particularly sad but one time I was at work (spoilered for Reasons) Then that song comes on the radio and I have to commandeer a conference room for some good old fashioned screaming.

  43. Now that I KNOW we are getting a resin printer, I have pretty much stopped trying to do miniatures on the CR 6. We are going to have a LOT of terrain though. I went to Thingiverse and looked for Mordheim, which led to Ulvheim, which led to a LOT of free terrain and buildings. Now my prints are taking almost as long as Grump's.

  44. Grump was singing Cohen's Hallelujah as Louis Armstrong. I was going to yell at him for mocking one of my favorite songs, but, but by the time he was done, I was wishing that Louis Armstrong HAD sung it. It fit the voice, and made me want to cry.

  45. Quiet may be pushing it just a bit but I really appreciate the support. It feel like forever since I've been (normal is also the wrong word here) without my condition. Thanks for being there! Well, while they are great pets, I can't recommend either of mine for passive activities. They are both rascals and love to go exploring when they get the chance, which usually involved some complicated mechanism to twine themselves around (it took an hour to get Snowball out of the recliner!) But they are also very friendly and I wouldn't change a thing about either of them!

  46. Brothers Roberto (03561) and Louis IV (02087) are excellent sculpts suitable for multiple time periods. I've painted a couple of Nuns With Guns and a couple of priests, but not a bishop or a cardinal! "Your Exellency, I apologize for the short notice. It's worse than we had thought." "You are forgiven, Bishop. Is it the old Priory at St. Wulfstan's?" "Indeed. The Creature has at last gotten loose from the bindings put down in 947 and broken through the 16th-century salt rings." "God in Heaven. I had prayed those wards would outlast me. We knew this day would come." "Mercifu
