  1. Dwarf Cleric's SKU is based on the metal figure, as I'm not seeing the Bones one in the Figure Finder? Anyway, these two are for a Lasting Tales game. Dwarf Paladins armed with pole arms and in heavy armor (not plate). Painted up the Paladin Dwarf, then realized his armor was plate, not heavy armor. Dwarf Cleric was wearing heavy armor (well, it's not light armor or plate) and a long mallet, which is close enough. I have a pole arm weapon I can just stick onto whatever weapon as a lazy "conversion". I also cut corners by painting the Dwarf Cleric in only one brown and khaki, so could always continue to paint her if I want. Both were painted with brushed on colored primers, craft paints, then hobby paints and washes. Dwarf Cleric started with Brown Liner, a Reaper tanned flesh, and possibly brush-tip pens for the eyes. Only need to paint to advanced tabletop for a game, so didn't go any further.

  4. Some of my June projects so far. She was one of the necromancers I had primed this month and the first one painted. I had gotten this figure so long ago and picked it out of my loose figure bin. Don't ever remember from before as her being labeled a hellborn and wanted her to have pale flesh so she could be used as a vampire as well if need be.

  6. Just finished this last night. After taking a photo this morning I can see that there is some chipping on the shield and the face needs some more work, but it's 95% done. I will take a new photo after touchups and basing. I will also take a group photo of the complete adventuring party together 🙂 That should happen this weekend.

  13. Oh dear... The other day, one of the crows in the park worked out that the Housemate and I always carry some food for any wildlife we come across on our park walks, and had started following us around. Today, he now has a friend. It's only a matter of time before we're reenacting The Birds isn't it?

  14. Just got off the phone with my contractor. Materials are being ordered, construction dates are being scheduled. It feels good to be at this point, since it's been six months since the damage to our home that started the process of trying to get the loan for it.

  15. My "Bad Times are coming" meter is in the red zone right now. Between the economy, Russia threatening to attack the Baltic states, and China mulling attacking Taiwan it seems we are in for some interesting times ahead. So I suggest all of you make sure you have extra food and water stored at home, and buy extra of anything you cannot live without now. Sorry to be such a downer, but I feel the need to warn everyone to prepare.

  18. I don't think this is quite done, but it's as close as I can paint it to what I wanted. Not great once again with the nmm. I also cut the bunny ears off of the portable forge because, well, who wants to be wearing full plate and a heavy robe AND have an entire forge with bunny ears hanging off their back? While wielding a giant hammer? I wouldn't... He kind of reminds me of this guy:

  20. Odin, perhaps? We've been spared the heatwave so far, it's been a mild all week, suppose to get to around 88 today, but I don't think it will. The forecast had today as our 90 day, then drops back into the 70s with rain showers. It's been nice thou, been a long time since we've had this much rain at this time of the year. I'm sure we're still in for a major heatwave of course. It wouldn't be summer here if it didn't go over 100 eventually.

  24. Today begins "The Wildest and Richest Rodeo In The West". Yes it's Reno Rodeo time, which means the Reno Air Races will soon be happening as well. After three years of disruption the Rodeo is back to a full program including a parade. Glad I don't need to go to Reno for anything this weekend. GEM

  26. ...I have returned. (Waitstaff in two states have learned to fear this statement, as it portends the emptying of the coffee and sugar stockpiles...) With the weather doing it's best immitation of the Sun's Anvil, (I don't want to hear any namby pamby boohooing about the 12 inch guns at Aqaba, they're pointed at the sea and can't be turned inland....), I've been driven into a nocturnal existence except for brief excursions to water the tomato plants. So I've returned to my old habit of sitting and basking in the moonlight these last few nights. Or tried to anyway. First there was the obnoxiously bright streetlights the city put in, which meant that I'd have to do this on the back porch. No problem, that was my usual spot years ago. However the next door neighbor to the West has decided to light up their porch like a Reno Saturday night, which nessesitated me finding a spot in the back yard shielded both from the streetlight and the neighbor's lights. Irritating, but doable. Tonight I go out to find that now that neighbor has begun lighting up their backyard as well, leaving me with no spot where I'm able to properly bask, illuminated only by natural light. I don't know if this was deliberate on the neighbor's part, but there is definately a higher force attempting to ensure that no matter what attempt I make to relax in my old ways, that they will be foiled. This also means that I cannot kill the forsythia, since that's the only blockage from the backyard light I've got. (Well played my ancient foe, well played...) I need to look into getting some lattice boards, create some kind of privacy wall that won't trigger the city's zoning goons... Other than that, it was a nice night, lightning to the West, yellow moon with a face remnicient of a Jack O Lantern rising over the trees around 11:30 pm, ominous whispers of the tree branches in the wind, lack of traffic and noise...

  27. Arrgghhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! My D&D kids are throwing me loops. We talked a couple sessions ago, and I gave them the choice of continuing this campaign for another year or two, or wrapping it up and moving on to a different campaign. They all decided to move on to something new. So I wrote up some campaign pitches, and sent them a poll to rank their favorite ideas, with the understanding that there would be a run-off vote between the top two ideas. The top idea is a campaign set in my long-running fantasy campaign of Iskitaan - a setting they've seen my stuff for, and I've talked about, but they've never played. The runner-up was a Traveller game in an Expanse like setting. These results themselves were surprising - I seriously thought they'd go for either the Star Wars game or the D&D Dragon Rider campaign. So I started doing a bunch of prep work to get ready for an Iskitaan campaign, since it was ranked #1 by most of the kids. Figured I didn't need to wait for the results of the run-off vote, since it was a clear majority in the rankings. I just checked on the results of the run-off voting, and the Traveller game is winning 3-1. Still 2 more votes to go, but it's either going to be a Traveller game, or a tie.

  30. I‘m all new to the forum and I thought: what better way to to engage than with a WIP thread about what‘s on my hobby desk today! I‘m looking forward to hearing your thoughts about this project, Blood Bowl, your favorite team or even star player or coach. So far I‘ve spent 12 hours prepping the lot, see the picture. Its the Hobbits from GW, Tree Man as well as Grak and Crumbleberry. Plus paraphernalia. PS: i‘m a bit unsure if it‘s ok to post this as the product as nothing to do with Reaper who are graciously hosting this. I tried my color scheme on one. Green-Yellow with a Brown-Purple. What would you change?

  33. Tell y'all what. It is stupid hot here in Ohio right now. We got up to a heat index of 111F (44C) Tuesday, 108 yesterday, and it's currently hovering around 102. It's so hot I cut my field work short today so we wouldn't all melt and sent both of the interns who have been out with me the last couple of days home. One was getting a migraine and the other just looked like he was going to barf. The humidity is also super high, which means your sweat doesn't evaporate and can't cool you down. So you just keep sweating and getting hotter. Looks like we're in for another round of this next week too. And I've got several fairly grueling field days lined up for then. I think I'm going to have to switch out interns each day to keep them from burning out on me. One nice thing though, we spent the morning out with one of my counterparts from the regulated community and he brought his interns along as well. All the interns kind of mingled while we worked and on the way back my kids couldn't stop talking about how lucky they were. Turns out the young people interning in the private sector are getting paid minimum wage to go out and dig holes in the heat this afternoon. My guys make a (barely) living wage to handle data entry in a cushy office and occasionally follow me around identifying whatever plant I pull for them and getting quizzed on stream and wetland design. So despite messing with them all the time, I think they're realizing how good they actually have it. But yeah, my old, out of shape broccoli is starting to wonder how much longer I can keep this up!

  35. I did hangouts when it first started but find my paint schedule does not align with others. I participate in RCL but don't hang out there. It's hard to have a discussion unless you create a private channel and stuff vanishes way too quickly to be useful. I've seen the FB channels but don't use them, and again stuff vanishes too quickly.

  36. I'm regularly talking in Major Mini Shenanigans, so I suspect that's a yes. I used to do Hangouts, but I can't hobby and voice chat, and as for the official Discord... Too busy, too Chaotic, and way too strict on rules and especially nuking whole swaths of conversation from above with no warning, notification of rules, or yeah, no warnings.

  38. The distributor tech, I have no idea. But the factory tech was on salary, so no financial incentive for him. I think it was just a matter of simple laziness for both of them - "Oh, just change the node address back" - since doing that is a two minute job (at worst) without looking into why it kept changing and what could be done to stop it. Heard back from the third site this morning - my reset procedure worked for them, no board needed. Unfortunately, I made a typo in my instructions which resulted in them telling the hopper full of $2 coins to empty itself. Whoops! But they figured out my typo, and finished the reset successfully.

  39. Whoa! I actually painted something this morning/afternoon. I even got a clear coat on it! Nolzur's Displacer Beast. Simple paint job but it works. Started with AP matte black primer, then I spray Tamiya TS-15 (which is a dark blue). After that had dried, I drybrushed some grey onto the rocky base & called it good. As I was spraying, I could have used a black wash, but overall it looks pretty good for a quick paint job. Kitty is in the case ready to go for the FLGS tonight, so no pics, at least for now. This is like the 3rd item I've cleared with Testor's Dullcoat since my LHS got in new stock. It doesn't look as matte as it was before. Granted the Tamiya is very glossy, so who knows. I kinda like the results from Krylon's matte spray for artists.

  40. Re the jobs question... For my interns the answer is yes. About 70% of my interns leave and go straight into a career or a fellowship program. For the private sector interns... I doubt it. I've always gotten the feeling they use them as cheap manual labor and don't bother teaching them too much. I think I've only ever met a few people who interned in private sector jobs and stayed in the industry. In fact, most of the upper management at a lot of these consulting firms actually interned with us. As to the holes... Every restoration project starts with proper soils. So you're always digging holes to monitor your soil development, or diagnose problems, or sometimes you just need a hole to plant trees in. Every professional in this industry has to dig holes at some point. Me and my interns included. The difference is I'm going to wait until it's not blazing hot out to bust out the shovels.

  46. I started trying to bring out the details on the crown with a wash. I'm not sure yet but I might go back in and paint over the excess wash so it's bright again but that may be more trouble than it's worth. I am having issues getting the wash on the medallions on it on the front and back. I may not be using enough wash on my brush. I'll try again soon. In the meantime I started on the next layer of hair.
