    She feared little in life. After all, death was going to come at some point. And before it came to take her, she would be sure to live life to its best. And for Kickfeather, at its best was one where she would be part of stories full of great and honorable battles where her fury and skill never wavered protecting her tribe, their values, and the People's homelands. My second Zealot Miniatures minotaur representing another WoW character of mine from back in the day, Kickfeather of the Blackhide, a Tauren warrior. Fury specced, even before it was cool, thus the dual wielding. It's this particular model that made me buy a bunch of these Zealots because I immediately saw her in it. Played around with a lot of rough blends of contrasting colors because that's become a favorite thing of mine to do. Also, I can't remember the last time I used so many colors in one mini outside of Ma'al Drakar. Maybe I went a bit crazy with this one.

    I held onto this model for a long time, a few years in hopes to get my skills up to the point of being happy with him. One of my favorite sculpts.

    So I started 3D printing and one of the models was a female Vampire, I scaled her down to size since she was actually a large model. I was inspired to paint her like Elvira. Elvira: My Lady:

    This is maybe the 20th mini that I've ever painted, and my 4th mini after a 3 year hiatus. Staring at the close-up pictures is tough, because I see so many things I can improve. Nonetheless, I'm fairly proud of this one!

    Another Bones model. A little easier to work with than the water weird, plastic was thicker and more rigid except for the gates. Overall, I like this one. Comparison shot

    44079 Giant Cave Sloth (#617) Fossils of Megatherium (which literally means "Great Beast") aka the giant ground sloth have been found in deposits dated to the Pliocene era 5.33 million and up to the Holocene, about 8.000 years ago. Which means it actually may have been contemprorary to early modern humans. Who in turn might even have killed them off. After all, a 4 ton elephant sized sloth might be both easy to catch and good eating. 50mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed!

    I found a picture somewhere online where someone had mounted a Kingdom Death mask on post like the warning masks you might see outside a tribal village. I thought this was a very cool effect, so I purchased a set of masks and painted them in this style. I'm very happy with how most of them turned out (though I think the demon is a little boring).

    This was a bones translucent blue model. Tried my best, but I find Bones just difficult to paint. Should have bought the metal one.

    I believe this came from my 1st reaper order, maybe about 6 years ago. Finally got around to painting him. I had a reason to paint with the witch in control for our next game session. I'll be taking down my website this year, it was fun, self indulgent, but too much work for little care. You can find a WIP of sorts there with the paints I used.

    44075 Axebeak (#608) Axebeak, or Phorusrhacos, was one of the great terror birds of the Miocene era, about 23-2.6 million years ago. Also it is, in fact, the direct forebearer of the modern era Chocobo bird. This Primal Chocobo was rather more bloody minded than the modern one, and would not accept any riders whatsover. The base I printed out for it is 65x35mm. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe Great Beasts indeed!

    Day two in the tank factory..... My wife is till having a blast. All that neat duct taping is due to her. A break now for lunch and we are going for a drive later. Need to put in a small order with the lfgs which we will pick up as they are doing a free comic day promotion at the store, with parking lot delivers. I expect we will be back in the tank factory for a second shift today though.

    Painted this little fella up a few years back...before my skills became rusty. Now trying to get back into the game and learn new things outside of dry brushing. Either way, enjoy.

    Another favorite model of mine, one I saved for several years to finally paint. I have another Alligator for him to control, but could not wait to take a photo.

    44078 Giant Snake (#616) Yeah, snakes have been around since the Garden of Eden. The earliest fossils of snakes we have date from the Cretaceous period, 145-66 million years ago). Snakes seem to be a successful group of animals, still alive and slitherin'. I tried to give it a relatively realistic patterning with colouration that might work on the autumnal flock I use these days. 32mm base. Sculpted by Julie Guthrie Great Beasts indeed!

    On my quest for a Legions of the Dead full painted army for Saga : Age of Magic, I just finished : - a Behemoth (Colossal Skeleton from Reaper) - 2 flying creatures (skeleton demon from Ral Partha) - 2 quadrupede creatures (Skeletal War Dog and Handler from Ral Partha with Giant Skeleton Rats from Mantic) Next... Bowmen ?

    Photography level up! Ok, admittedly the first one was far from ideal conditions (realized I forgot to take pictures when it was already at the show). The second is after 30 seconds with the little light box I just got. I know I have a ways to go, but it is so much better.

    I started this little guy some years ago, but then I got stuck and he just set on my shelf of shame and stared at me (I had already painted the eyes). Now I finally finished him, so it's a collaboration of Younger Samedi and Not-So-Young-Anymore-Samedi. Funny thing is, I have no idea what colours Young Samedi used, I just remember mixing some greens and browns together for the skin. And of course my all-time favourite metallic: The copper of the old Reaper Pro Paint series. Young Samedi was a keyboard player, that's why he liked this mini so much - I mean, how many minis of keyboard players are there? Not-So-Young-Anymore-Samedi plays keyboard only very sporadically. But at least he finishes his painting projects now and then... So enjoy, C&C very welcome, as always!

    44082 Cave Bear (#624) The cave bear lived from the Pleistocene era (That's the Ice Ages to us normal folks) which lasted from 2.580.000 years ago to about 11.700 years ago. However, it seems to have gone extinct about 24.000 years ago. Which certainly is contemporary with modern humans. Them cave bears must have been delicious. And the shaggy furs kept us warm in those cold, cold caves. 60x35mm base. Sculpted by Jason Wiebe. Great Beasts indeed!

    Here is the second member of the Tengu Trio: The Warrior, plus a picture of the brothers (sisters?!) adventuring together. To give me an idea of the colors I could use, I looked at pictures of the four heavenly kings often depicted in temples, who always have fierce expressions but are dressed quite colorful.

    Honestly, the credit goes to my stepson's girlfriend who managed to push out to a 10 pound turkey for her first child. I'm sure my wife would have been very proud of both of them.

    I definitely have all the required components.... And it's not like there are no examples of tanks anywhere nearby.....a quick count shows 35 in various scales and levels of assembly......(but I can stop printing more any time I want)

    She got in today!!! Shesaid she waited for 45 mins, as there was 3 people ahead of her. We have 6 machines but only 3 are working (ie 1,3,5). She even said some guy gifted bags to people that were there, so she got a bag out of it. She said, total for everything was around $50 bucks, so hey at least it was worth waiting.

    Work halted for the evening. Unlike Jasper, Mrs. J likes being in pictures.... She's having a blast doing this. Crew compartment assembled. Turret base plate done. Angle for front armour established. Barrel test fitted. It will need to be cut down. I expect tomorrow we will get the turret built and the front armor slope determined and probably completed. we'll see if we get to tracks.....

    Turkey was only half-thawed when I popped it open. Also it had brown feathers But! It smelled like turkey! It didn't smell like Satan's sulfurous back end! Legs have been removed and are in the freezer. Wings are in the oven. I snapped the poor bird's spine and the still half-frozen carcass is thawing in my soup pot in the sink in cold water. I'll change the water in a half hour and check for pliability. Plan tonight is to roast one single breast for dinner, the other breast into the freezer and the ribcage into stock. The pelvis I'll work on tomorrow. One thigh will roast tomorrow, the other will turn into coq au vin (dindon au vin?) on Monday.

    B:GCC - Mission 21 "A Golden Opportunity" has the heroes catch Deadpool Deathstroke mid-robbery as he attempts to steal a formula for kryptonite locked behind a door. I think my favorite color that I bought from Reaper is their Hazard Yellow. It slots in nicely between yellow and orange and works wonderfully in a lot of different situations. I think it is spot on for Deadpool Deathstroke. Riddler Goons. I like the color scheme, but I debated for a while if I should switch up the colors a little to make them easier to distinguish on the board. In the end, I decided against it in favor of the K.I.S.S. principle. If I play the game enough where it is a problem, I'll be happy. Goons with Sticks Goons with Guns

    So as of today, there are no active cases of Covid-19 being treated in my province, and there have been no new positive cases in 14 days. (Also, I believe there have been 0 deaths related to covid-19; all positive cases have recovered) This is a good thing. Will be interesting to see how they deal with it, and how well everyone follows the rules. I'm happy that my employer seems more than happy to take things slow. Our department at least seems really happy with how the work from home thing has been going and seems to be in no hurry to have everyone back in the office. And I'm great with that.

    Partner and I have finished a luxurious turkey dinner. For some definitions of luxurious. I tore the wings apart with my teeth while hunched over the kitchen sink, it was glorious One breast is perfectly roasted and I do not expect leftovers. The carcass is one hour into a three hour stock simmer. The thighs are small enough I'll cook them both tomorrow. I feel better

    My recent print. I got the image from Thingiverse. The file was designed by pollygrimmart. The details were a bit shallow so the face didn't turn out as I hoped it would, but for a table top mini I got for free, I am quite pleased with the final product! As usual, I really need to work on my photo skills.

    Between ice cream and whiskey, tonight, I chose the ice cream. Lost my afternoon to the US government, trying to figure out why Medicare is canceling part of my cancer-battling mother's coverage. Turns out she failed to pay bills that they never generated! They can't even explain what happened. We talked to them two or three times, kept get redirected elsewhere, SS office and insurers and retirement service and everyone anybody could think of to send us to, until someone at her prescription coverage provider's place finally figured out and explained what was going on. We had to talk the Medicare people through it but escalated it up to getting started toward a resolution. We think. It's not all settled yet but looks like it should be all right. They agree it's their fault, anyway. So. Hopefully. All the fingers cross and all that. Still, though. Ugh. Long day. Didn't get started on those stories but did have a nice read in the park. And a nice ride--nice sunny day for lowered windows and cranked-up punk rawk. Words and booze tomorrow, maybe.

    Except for a very few small touch ups and a little touch up to the waterfall (which is a little more splash effect on the bottom, needs to go a little bit further) it's done. Took a little over 10 days I believe but I took my time and I'm happy with my results.

    So, uh, dad surprised me with a package this week... Double surprise because of what was in it... Meade 400/60 f/6.7. Okay, it's a small and cute one, with an inexpensive manual mount, basic red dot sight, and basic 9mm and 25mm eyepieces, but... That's one lovely surprise to send. Getting it home was a tad awkward though, since, well, you try carrying a 3' wide 10lb box for twenty minutes. It's no 8" Celestron RASA, and it isn't an APO refractor, but hey, it'll at least let me and Rune see stuff, and that's what counts the most. Naturally, it's cloudy as all sin today, and it's tried raining a few times

    Yep. Week in the car with a dog, a week on a lake somewhere, and a week in the car with a dog was my usual teenage years family road trip. The first time the dog was so confused. We'd only ever driven to Grandma's house in that car so for her it must have been the longest most circuitous route to Grandma's ever taken and we didn't even get there After that she got used to it and liked watching the road go by while laying on various people. Our old minivan had its own Unique Smell; oily cast iron, rocks, gym clothes, city smog, and spilled coffee will produce a true Miasma. The Weird Smell gained during the road trip merely added snacks, weak tea, spray cheese, and dog to that Miasma. If a minivan isn't used to haul things that Smell Weird then you're doing it wrong.

    I didn’t realize how fortunate we are. Our city collects recycling from the curbside the same as regular trash collection, except every two weeks instead of every week. And we have a big, trash-bin-sized blue bins to put it in. And they’re pretty decent about taking big piles of flattened cardboard boxes if we have more than will fit in the bin. And it’s still going on despite the pandemic lockdown. I stuck my head out to wave and yell Thanks last time the truck came by.

    So while Mrs. Hamster watched Mrs. America with her friends, I slapped some primer on a pair of maggotcrown ogre juggernauts, I spilled a bunch more than I needed onto my well pallet. I didn't have anything that I was planning on using that much stynylrez primer on... but my buckets of Bones are always at hand. Wanting something kinda big, I grabbed the appropriate bucket and pulled out the tree. Then the bear... I hadn't planned on working on either of these, but now that I've primed them, I kinda feel like I need to! D&D tonight was fun. The party is exploring some caves in the middle levels of Stonehell. Not too much treasure to be found, and a bunch of unpleasant beasties... So far only one party death, a woman at arms was swarmed by some rocky beetle things and turned into pulp. I think she had something like 4 or 5 HP and took 18 or 19 in one round. Also enjoyed a nice Allagash Black. I was really looking forward to ReaperCon this year. I thought I had a solid chance for Silver in Open with Kornovik. *sigh* Ah well... *Raises Glass* Here's to better days ahead. Here's to the future. Here's to my friends and loved ones staying safe, if not sane, in lock down. Here's to the digital age that allows us all to stay in touch. Cheers!
